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.

mastiffchild4654d ago

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!
