    I like Terry in this. They are both fantastic players, but seems to have more awareness on the pitch than Ferdinand. That, and he gets himself into scoring positions more, while getting back and defending the back.

    Terry by a fair distance IMO.

    For the reasons all ready mentioned gets in scoring positions more often. but i've always been impressed with the way John Terry reads the game and hardly ever seems to be caught out of position etc.

    If anything I think Rio reads the game a bit better than Terry, but Rio makes way more individual errors than Terry so I give it to JT.

    And he scores goals...!

    Even though I dont like him, John Terry by a fair bit. I could list reasons but I would just be rewording what has already been said.

    If you asked me to choose which one of these players I’d want to play for Wales (to avoid the United bias) I’d pick John Terry every single day of the week.

    Yeh I would definately rather have Terry than Ferdinand, you would just feel more assured with Terry in the team. He has a bit more pace as well I would say which is always helpful, and he seems to have more drive. Sometimes Ferdinand doesn't quite seem fully up for matches I would say, sometimes he can lose his concentration and make a silly error.

    Was pretty much gonna say this. Rio just seems to make a few to many casual mistakes that a player of his standard should'nt be making. He's still a fantastic player that any team would be lucky to have though.

    Re: Player vs Player: John Terry vs Rio Ferdinand

    They're two different kind of defenders tbh.

    Terry vs Vidic would be a fairer comparison as they're very similiar centre-backs. Carvalho is more Ferdinand-esque.

    Most teams, at least good teams, tend to have a classier defender and a tougher defender I feel.

    To be fair to Ferdinand, I think we miss him more than we do Vidic, but I'd probably say Vidic is the better centre-back (That probably sounds pretty stupid lol). Ferdinand does bring a lot of composure to the team, but that's linked to his calmness, and his leadership skills I believe.

    Ferdinand just makes too many mistakes imo to be better than JT. It's definitely close though.

    And he scores goals...!

    Yeah, no doubt, I get why you made this.

    Be interesting to see who most people think would make a better captain for their team. I think I'd say Terry still tbh. He's a natural born leader on the pitch, even if not so much off it.

    On both of their best days, Id take Rio. Current form, Id take Terry. Wouldnt let either one of them near my wallet or gf though.
