OT: Under/Overrated Footballers

In your opinion who are some under/overrated players, these are my opinion please don't be too offended!

Mine;

Underrated:
Begovic, Chelsea fans can't wait to have Courtois back but for me, Begovic has been incredible filling in for TBo

Fernandinho, some people see him as a weak link for City however I think he's incredible, so efficient and has great ability as well

Janmaat, probably the only Newcastle player I enjoy watching. Great crosser of the ball, think he's a good player and deserves more credit

Joe Hart, many already know he's top drawer, but I think he's in the top 3 in the PL, probably lacks leadership but makes incredible saves, often in big CL games

Albrighton, an odd one but I feel he's been going under the radar this season, with Mahrez and Vardy getting most of the attention I think Albrighton has been excellent, such a hard worker and so selfless


Overrated:
Ramsey, I know this sound biased but for me Arsenal are weaker when he starts, he slows down the play and can be selfish, Arsenal are so enjoyable to watch with the likes of Cazorla, Ozil and Alexis and I don't think Ramsey can offer what they all can

Yaya Toure, One of the best midfielders in the PL in recent years, however people still believe he is the best "All round" midfielder in the league. Personally I feel Toure let's City down sometimes with his defensive duties. He's a lot slower than 2-3 years back when he used to power through defences

Oscar, for me he's the weak link in Chelsea's team, probably the only natural "CAM" they have, he's not as electric as Willian and Hazard and although he scores some mint goals he can let Chelsea down at times, i.e against Spurs at the weekend when he was almost invisible.


Let me know what you all think

    Janmaat has been absolute pony this season. I have the misfortune of watching him week in week out

    Thought Oscar was pretty decent against Spurs, had a couple brilliant moves.

    Not saying he's underrated but I absolutely love Ayoze Perez for us, doesn't score many goals but I think he's mint.

    Coutinho is arguably the most overrated player in the world. He's perceived as this young, dynamic, goalscoring midfielder, but in reality he has never scored more than 5 goals in any season. He is also perceived as having an amazing shot from outside the box, but he takes a ridiculous number of attempts and has one of the lowest conversion rates in Europe. Overrated both in real life and in FIFA.

    For underrated, I'll go with Fabian Johnson. He was arguably the best RB in the 2014 WC, and is very solid playing anywhere from RB, LB, LM, RM, or even CM. Unfortunately, positional versatility is hard to rate in FIFA. 76 OVR with 42 Finishing in FUT16 are both pretty low.

    Underrated Mikel Obi , this players gets so much stick and when called upon, he delivers, just like the Champs league final in 2012.

    Overrated Matic... I am yet to see what he offers, cannot use his right leg, gets pulled out of position...has no clue what it means to be a DM , he lacks positional awareness... So far we all can see where Chelsea are on the league standing

    I know right...They were all made up to have him back even if they paid like £20 million more than they sold him for. In fairness it proved to be a great buy

    I guess they should just sell him, perhaps to Wolfsburg or Everton :wink:

    Chelsea have arguably been at their best when Oscar plays. He's just inconsistent. He has the ability to produce magic out of nowhere though.

    Yea, and he buys into the team putting in a shift as well.

    Lucas Leiva of Liverpool, he's a great tackler and helps Liverpool immensely when he plays. He also consistently has some of the best tackling stats around yet only Liverpool fans seem to notice and appreciate how good he is a a DM

    I think that because tackling is arguably the only thing he has in his locker, other fans don't recognise him

    Underrated

    Biased ones
    Sakho, he's one of the best defenders we have had recently, people think he is woeful because he ain't a great dribbler and has a horrid touch but plays some lovely passes.

    Lucas, the amount of work he gets through is rediculous but because he ain't scored since like 2012 no one cares :D

    Can, this guy (when given the role he wants to play) can be an incredible box to box CM, such strength and pace and the class such as his assist last night shows it all

    Non Liverpool

    I rate Ighalo highly, highly efficient player considering no one cares about him/gives him headlines

    Overrated

    Not gonna slash Chelski but Oscar ain't anything brilliant IMO, exact same as Coutinho scores the odd worldie and everyone thinks he's unreal. Not mad pleased by Costa either, was good to start with last year but not very effective in 2015

    Like I said Coutinho to an extent, but just that he can't score worldies ever day. He is still an unreal dribbler and can unlock defences perfectly on his day. 4 goals in his last 3 ain't bad

    I don't think you can slate Costa for the second half of last season at all imo.

    @hoban95 I ain't slating him, just think he's slightly overrated, I mean he's got quality in the box and is fantastic at being a wind up which I love watching. But 11 goals in the calendar year so far hardly screams world class.
  • hoban95

    Well tbf you can slate him for this season but you can't underrate him based of us last season. He just kept getting injured. Wasn't like he wasn't firing for us.

    Matic is the easiest player to get by this season, still waiting for him to replicate his one season flukes. Who gets subbed off while being subbed in? hmmmm .. Chelsea is currently 3 points in the dropped zone with the likes of Matic.. smh
