Joey/Soroa vs Goiko/Lopez

I'm sure its been discussed before but the current background got me thinking again how the best from the 70's and 80's would stack up against the best of today. I believe Joey or Bolivar or Cachin paired with Soroa or Elorza or Felix would beat Goicochea and Lopez and by a lot. Goicochea and Lopez both throw hard but not hard enough that it would overpower Joey or Soroa. Joey (or Boli or Inclan or etc) would just catch it on the reverse or forhand, depending on the player, and put the ball where they are not.

I believe there is a drop off in talent from Goicochea/Aritz/Lopez/Irastorza to the next level of players and it makes them look much better than they actually are. In the 70's and 80's each post position was stacked with talent, there were no free points.
