Oh come on people! Seriously this guy's ability to read the game is unmatched by anyone ever! Nobody could play for a team in the premier league with the injury he had. NOBODY. This guy didn't have a proper full training session for most of his career and yet still trumps everyone on this list. If Ledley did not have his injury, I guarantee you the best teams in the world would be queuing up to buy him. Its almost scary to imagine what a fully fit Ledley King could have accomplished!

Oh Ledley Ledley, he's only got one knee, he's better than John Terry, oh Ledley, Ledley

He is an unsung hereo at Arsenal FC, honestly, jr deserves to be in the top 10, ranked at least as high as Ramos.

I don't know why this guy doesn't get more credit. The fact that he does not play in Europe is puzzling me. Did any one watch him in world cup?
