    I genuinely believe Neymar was one of the best ever in his position because of the lack of true wingers.
    definitely

    Easy for me
    Salah > Son >> Neymar >> Bale

    Also how I'd rank which player I want in my team.
    Think most folk have treated this as 'who had the best season when they were 29'
    I didn't quite intend it like that.

    It was more of a prompt to discuss how good each player has become at the age of 29 and if you were to strip away injuries, all other variables and assume you wanted to pick one for your team (which again, as said, it depends on things like who would be around them etc) which one would you choose
    Some are boring, some are not.

    Salah easily.. Neymar only had that 14/15 season, others were not even close of what was expected of him...

    If fit - Neymar. Much better all-rounder than rest on that list.

    Bale was phenomenal in his prime. Even this finished form went to the Prem and scored 11 goals in like 1000 minutes.

    As youth talents:

    Neymar > Bale > Son > Salah

    In Reality at 29:

    Salah > Son > Bale > Neymar

    Stunning how that works.

    'Talent without working hard is nothing'

    Ney and Bale with their injuries are unlucky though

    Son>Salah>Neymar>Bale for their age 29 seasons.

    But if everyone is healthy, I would still take Neymar for a 1 game, or a short tournament situation. Just think there is a higher ceiling with him.
