Europe's 50 Top Players Per Bloomberg

Just saw this today. Many comments one could make, but I keep coming back to David Moyes of all things. At Everton he had two of the top 50 in Europe and yet couldn't get to the CL. Of course, two players (plus Tim Howard) does not a team make, but this harks back to my comments at the time MU hired Moyes: everyone says he overperformed at Everton, but looking at the talent there I tend to think he underperformed slightly.

Since this list was based on last season Arsenal has 2, Santi and Arteta. The same number as Spurs and Everton BTW.
