    He's in Xavi mould. Don't think he'll decline that much soon.

    I expect from him greatnes at WC for our NT. If that is not the case then I can't give him credit for being best CRO player ever. What he does in RM he needs to achive at least 50% in Russia.

    He has already to an extent. But like Bojan said, he's in Xavi's mould, he can turn it up for the most important moments even if he will look a bit jagged and sluggish in other games of the season. He's definitely less durable and cannot do 60 minutes of his top performance game-in game-out. To compare it, he definitely doesn't have the same influence Pogba has on United's offense anymore. If you take Luka out Isco, Kroos and Asensio usually pick up the slack. But it's one of the reasons why Kovacić was missed more than people probably felt it this season over these 2-3 months. Vastly different styles, Kova's runs and movement are more like prime-Kaka, but influence and collectedness is very much similar from both.

    Basically he's declining, but very slowly.
    People are boring.

    I second this. Though I think he is more than just very slowly declining.
    May permanent peace be brought to the Arab world. My heart goes out to the families of those who have lost loved one(s). I wish and hope those who are creating religious, racial, regional, and tribal divisions among/within the Arab nations would be defeated in their quest for the destruction of the Middle East.

    I'm not sure about Modric, for me he is in Croatia all-time Top 3 players, but Zvonimir Boban was something else.

    Prosinečki won the CL with Crvena Zvezda. Shame he wasn't motivated enough to show everything he got for Barca.

    Boban was class in that great AC Milan.

    But for the record, Boban was 3rd in WC with CRO. So Modrić, f* off with RM titles, I don't count them. Gimme somethin with CRO

    He is not off the hook yet. He has english and croatian authorities at his back.
