So we agree on most things. What comes to the chart. I saw it, but it has little to do with press resistance or ball retetion. James scores, assists makes more key passes compared to many players. Thats a given. Hi simply isnt a player to play for a "super team" like Bayern or Madrid. He is the perfect guy for though Napoli. What comes to that Zidane episode you are correct. But Even If Zidane didn't have anything against James its a fact that Isco did exactly what James shouldve. He fought for his spot back then and with Bale around injured, being more interested in golf than the team and performing badly when not injured. Isco got alot of playing time time on 4-1-2-1-2. That couldve been James.
