Most Overrated/Underrated EE Footballers of All-time

Allow me to begin a list with Most Overrated (defined by and/or any combination of: lack of first team appearances, transfer flops, price vs. production, inability to show up in big games, destructive temperament, general malaise).



Most Overrated:
Baros, Shaqiri, Kinkladze, Hleb, Cech, Kezman, Pavlyuchenko, Balaban

Some overrated ones
Mandzukic (technically crap)
Kaladze (just because you played for Milan as a borderline starter doesn't mean you're good)
Luzhny (See Kaladze but for Arsenal, although outside of Ukrainian fans no one actually thinks he's good)
Baros (definition of headless chicken)

Underrated
Loskov
Titov
Onopko
Ignashevitch
Voronin
Berbatov (he seriously is considering how good he was)
S. Petrov
Mostovoi

Man only likes to count his troubles, but he does not count his joys.

How about that over rated Russian guy who played for Arsenal? You once tried to convince XT was better then Modric... I forget his name, maybe he's already on your list.

I'd say Mandzukic has had a damn good career for someone who is "technically crap".

Capello beamed: "From Savicevic you came to expect these unthinkable plays of brilliance, because from the position he was in most players would have just taken the ball in stride and gone a little further with it, instead he went for this spectacular attempt which has gone down in history and is shown over and over again. It was simply.... Una cosa da Savicevic [the way of Savicevic]."

Mandžukić isn't underrated, everyone notices his contribution for Juventus being everywhere on the pitch.

Sanmartean. He is both at the same time, depending on who you ask.

Paraphrasing a fb friend (but using my team):

Most Underrated both home and abroad:



even though he still is the most decorated Bosnian footballer of all time. Kinda was ahead of his generation with a huge emphasis on work rate and could pretty much play at either RB, RWB, RM and AMR positions.

Completely agree.

Humble guy, selfless on the field, always played behind bigger names, was versatile enough to both defend+attack whilst keeping the midfield together.
