No way. He's physically superior and anything that relies on athleticism he has the advantage, but Carrick's decision making is different class.

I'm a huge fan of Carrick but I don't think it's his decision making that sets him apart (not just from Matic but most midfielders). More his vision and execution to play in between the lines.

We'd be in 6th or 7th at the moment if we hadn't signed Matic. He brings the same reading of the game and level of calm that Carrick did/does. Alongside 2 world class midfielders (Pogba and, er, ?) I genuinely think we'll have the best midfield in the PL. Who that mystery third is though would be anyones guess. Kroos

Herrera and Fellaini are so far away from Pogba and Matic it's not even funny. It'd be like having Jordan Henderson alongside Pirlo.

It's as ridiculous as playing Di Maria as an advanced central midfielder & asking him to come back to the ball, more so when it's played with so little consideration from hoofw*****g bungle-c***s like Smalling.
Agreed. That's where he played when he was the best player in Germany with a million assists and goals.

Different players.

Like comparing a *something* to a *something that does a similar job but goes about it in a different way in a different way*. They do a similar job but go about it in a different way.

It's Thursday and I'm all out of analogies.
