Best midfielder of his time in the UK. He was not the best in the world.

my point is, in that season Arsenal participated in various competitions and performed quite well in the Epl managing 26 wins and 12 draws therefore lifting it unbeaten..
Arsenal fared less well in the cups, eliminated in the fa and league cp semi-finals by the mighty MUfc and midsbrough (sp)respectively, and at the quarter-final stage of the uefa champs league to chelsea.

so am I in order to say that u lied to the village when you said that-Did he captain his team to an unbeaten season? YES, he did....Fact

Did he ever win the Champions league? Was he ever better than Zidane. Or Ronaldinho.
So, to be the best, a player has to win the Champions league? Is that the benchmark for the best players? Or Zidane and Ronaldinho are the bench marks? Basically defensive Midfielders wouldn't count.
Then Thierry was not the best striker, and neither was Bergkamp, based on your arguement....

Those two were the best in their time.
Who was a better striker than Henry or Bergkamp?

Your argument is baseless. When you talk about 'Season' in football, it never includes FA, Carling, or any other. Ever heard of 'UEFA season'? So, whether Arsenal lost all but the EPL games, then they went the whole season unbeaten.
There's a reason 'Invincibles' resonates with just Arsenal in the EPL...

Rui Costa?
Seedorf?
Del Piero?
Gerrard?
Pirlo?
Weren't those best too? They too played in Zidane/Dinho era.
I on the other hand believe they were best among the best, and so was Vieira....
Don't just fete attacking midfielders and ignore defensive ones...
