Professional footballers are quite the humans. Incredibly skilled with the ability to make a ball do almost anything, they are one of the most popular sport figures on the planet.
This list is all over the place some i agree most i dont.
Cech, nasri, busquets, alves, torres.. they all are overrated, you've gotta be kiddin me!
busquetes maybe.. the rest.. not so much
true, this article are pathetic, lol how the hell those player who is not even rated are overrated. Bleachreport are full of armature writer
according to the list joe cole still plays for chelsea, so wouldnt take much notice of this list.
Amateurs. Not worth reading.
John Terry is really overrated. He is slow and can barely kick the ball.
Pointless attack on JT. Everyone knows what Terry's shortcomings are but the fact remains that he's about the best captain in World Football. He's a brilliant organiser and talker opn the pitch demanding the best of his team and getting the managers orders across properly. His "lack" of pace should, were you to listen to his detractors, mean he's entirely useless on the pitch against any forward capable of breaking into a trot so why has he managed to shut out some of the World's quickest and most lethal strikers through the years? Why did England fall apart when he lost the captaincy? How did Chelsea manage to concede fewer goals from set pieces, fewer goals from headers etc in the EPL last season? Because JT is overrated I suppose? I can understand people not liking the guy, fair enough, but to call someone overrated when he collects more stick than praise yet has the stats to back up his claims to quality amazes me. Not a great guy but someone who made the most of what he had and gets his passion across to others around him becoming an inspirational leader and certainly the kind of player most teams would relish at the heart of their defence. As he's got older he reads the game better than he used to negating any need for amazing speed and is actually pretty UNDER rated when it comes to his passing and distribution. Sure, he's not Luiz with the ball but he's equally as competent as some touted younger defenders in the EPL like Cahill for example. Fact is, and I understand it, you just don't LIKE Terry.
i dunno... gd captains aren't meant to sleep with there team-mates girlfriends :)
Maybe they should've narrowed it down to 20 because they are struggling to come up with reasons for some of them. I mean Cech?! Any team in the world would have him in goal.
yh maybe even 10..
And Kalou? No one EVER rated him to start with! He's just lucky to get so many games but there's a shedload of them around the world!
I agree a little bit with Podolski. The Köln fans have way to much faith in him, but mostly I disagree. And David Beckham? He's rated highly because of what he's done, not because where he is. And I'm sure LA Galaxy sells enough shirts in his name to cover up some of his costs. EDIT: And Da Gea? His numbers of matches in Manu can be counted on one hand! Of course there are going to be problems in the beginning, so it is for nearly every keeper out there. He's also 20 years old! 20! The general theme of this list is essentially players who are having a tough time.
.No Javier Pastore,No Jordan Henderson ? No Andy Carroll ? .Funny how he thinks Denilson and Joe Cole are still with Arsenal & Chelsea respectively.. .De Gea,Ramires,Torres aren't overrated,just overpriced. .Nasri & Cech ? Seriously ? .He said Ramires is "lazy" while he's the one who can't stop running. .Mikel,an "inconsistent and erratic" passer ? SMFH Clearly an awful writer..
i'd say mikel is overrated.. but to have nasri, cech, torres etc is ridiculous
,No Jordan Henderson ? No Andy Carroll ? What age are those players? They are practically kids, yet you cite them to be overrated? Do me a favour and get a clue. On his day, Andy Carroll is unmarkable. I recall him doing Chelsea up like a kipper last season. And you can't say that Torres was overpriced when at the time he was the best striker on the planet. If anything, Chelsea got him cheaper than what they should have. Pity he couldn't score in a whore house at the moment, which is what he and Chelsea deserves tbh. Bigger club my arse.
Andy Carroll,unmarkable ? Doing Chelsea up like a kipper ? Obviously,you didn't notice the shit mistake Alex made and Carroll scored from it..Didn't do anything the whole game,it was Guiterez (if spelled like that) who shined.Jordan Henderson is overrated,did I saw he won't improve ? NO. P:S: Liverpool fan ?

Michael Ballack and Lukas Podolski never ever really showed what the people were expecting. Two of the most overrated players in the history of football. The national-team of Germany is way to overrated in general. Most of the time they have only luck.
german national team are consistently good so it cnt be luck
Michael Ballack,overrated ? You mean the one who carried Germany through the 02 WC & gave it all in the 06 WC & Euro 08 ? The one who bullied attackers when he was at Chelsea ? Do you even watch football ?
