who are the players who don't really have an amazing amount of talent but are important for their team. Gattuso when/if he plays well, like he has in the past I think would be an example.

This isn't about players who go unnoticed

The amount of times he saves them is uncanny. The guy just doesn't stop running too.

Jankulovski and Molinaro aren't vital for their teams while Vucinic isn't average

Gerrard, Lampard and Terry.........while being completely average and stereotypical "world class" players in English interpretation of the term, they are surprizingly more important for their respective teams than their better skilled teammates ...say Carvalho, Deco, Ballack, Torres, Xabi Alonso

Gerrard is certainly more valuable and a better player than Alonso.
In some seasons, Carvalho was better, and in others (such as 05-06), Terry was better.
Lampard is better than Deco. Deco is old and has only a fraction of the shooting ability that Lampard has.

Jankulovski and Molinaro aren't vital for their teams while Vucinic isn't average
If not Janku, then Milan has no average vital players, then. lol. Vucinic... depends on what you mean by average. If you mean average player for a top 4 team, then he's average.

Ji Sung Park, no world beater by all means but is a work horse, doesn`t complain and covers several positions for Man U in midfield, rarely lets them down IMO....perhaps a bit underrated
