Bowen on Ireland

From the official site.
But look at someone like Stephen Ireland, is there genuinely a better player than him in his position in this country at the moment? You cannot just look at names on paper just because they play for big teams overseas and think that they will do better jobs than people like Stephen.
I know the question was meant rhetorically, but taking is as if it weren't, the answer is 'yes, but only Deco and maybe Fabregas'.

Well yeah. I took 'at the moment' to mean 'thus far this season'.
And I think Deco has been better, and Cesc maybe on a par.

If we're including the last year or two into our analysis, you'd have to have Scholes, Barry, Arteta, Gerrard, Lampard, Ballack, Alonso etc etc etc etc ahead of him.
