Some good news.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-32895048

Fantastic news. About time these people get exposed.

Fifa 96 was the best!!
You could only score from the behind the corners of the penalty box, haha good times.

✔Name 1 Underated player in ur team this season (does the job well but doesnt get enough credit)

✔And 1 overated player in ur team (alot of hype and promise but does not live up to potential/expectation)

*** Other league fans (Barcelona/Real/Juve etc) , feel free to place ur opinion
Underrated: Willian
Overrated: Ivanovic
+1
Underrated: Sissoko
Overrated: Cabella (expected so much more of him this season)
Underrated: Henderson
Overrated: Raheem $terling
+2
Underrated: Mertesacker
Overrated: Ramsey (had a inconsistent season)
Underrated: Pedro, this guy has always given it his all at our club and is still second string even after proving that he is very much at the top of his game winning everything all the time. Sad to see that he is completely underrated by everyone. Glad he is loyal to his club that gave him everything that he could have ever wanted from life.

Overrated: Damn... our whole team has been incredibly solid. Sorry... tried to think hard and just can't seem to find a weak link lol
Underrated : busquets,as always.He is as much important as messi in our team,yet he rarely gets noticed.
Honourable mention : Pedro.
Overrated : I didn't see one in this season to be honest:-)
+1
Underrated: Oscar
Overrated: Ivanovic
Underrated - Monreal. Has been quietly effective and managed to keep Gibbs out of the starting XI. He's more conservative than Gibbs but that balances well with our very adventurous right side.

Overrated - difficult since Arsenal players seem (to me) to get a lot of stick and little praise in return. I'd have to say that Ospina has been pretty overrated by many. Although he's no clown, he has shown that he is also not on the same level as someone like De Gea. But thats harsh, and I'm struggling to pick a man who has been praised to the high heavens other than Sanchez.
+1
Underrated: Fellaini
Overratted: Di Maria
+2
Underrated: Oscar
Overratted: Mikel
Underrated: two new arrivals; Claudio Bravo and Ivan Rakitic. They're rated quite highly by close Barça followers but not yet by non-fans.
* Bravo has surprised me; I knew he was a very good goalkeeper, but he's actually world class. I'd rate him on par with Courtois even; part of the top 5 in the world.
* Rakitic is about as good as we could have hoped for: great skill on the ball, outstanding passing ability, flair and a good long shot, but he's also the hardest worker in our midfield. Truly an exemplary player who can rightly call himself a heir to Xavi.

Overrated: Busquets, Alves, Neymar
* Busi has been decent, but in the past 2-3 years he's been making more errors and displayed more lapses in concentration than before.
* Alves had a very good season, but in the two seasons before that he annoyed me tremendously with one brilliant game and then 3 terrible ones where all his passes and crosses were wayward and he didn't defend at all. It had all to do with his attitude since his skill is outstanding if he's actually focused.
* Neymar has also been great since he arrived here, but people seem to rate him as the third best player worldwide often. He's not. He has the potential to become the best once Messi declines, but his decision-making is still very often poor (too much running with the ball and no great vision to spot typical Barça-style through balls yet), his finishing is OK but not great yet and he's sometimes a bit lazy in defense when he needs to help out. All three of them are still great players, but I feel their enormous fame makes them unfocused and sloppy sometimes - and therefore a bit overrated.
+2
Underrated: Giroud
Overrated: Giroud
+3
Underrated: Philippe Coutinho

Overrated: Sterling (not saying it cause he wants to leave)
+1
Underrated: Ashley young. He's been running at fullbacks and beating players nearly all season. He's kept out di maria. Honestly wanted him gone for most of the year, he always seems to flatter for a few games and then be poor for months.. But he has made the biggest improvement in the squad from last year. Much less diving and hiding, much more chance creation and bravery with the ball.

Overrated: Di Maria. Started the season like a house on fire. At some point he got injured, got his house burglarized, and then never recovered his form. I think this happened right around when Argentina went all the way to hong kong for glamour friendlies. Looks bereft of confidence, needs to sort it out next season. Hopefully he can go to copa America and regain some swag. Much more likely he gets injured and sent home early but I hope he stays fit and wins the tournament with a major contribution.
+1
Underrated: Henderson
Overrated: Skrtel
underrated: Santi Cazorla


Overated : Giroud and Ospina

like one guy said in order to win trophies you need a top striker and a top keeper. we don't have either, that's the reason we always strugle in big games and won't win trophies
+1
I would have loved to see Giroud trotting out there for LFC rather than some of the retreads that were playing striker this season. Would probably be in the top 4 with someone as overrated as Giroud.
+1
Underrated: Henderson
Overrated: Sterling
+1
Underrated: Bonucci, Lichtsteiner
Overrated: Honestly none, Big ass dissapointment: Llorente.
+1
What do you get if you cross an evil, conniving, perilous, duplicitous, corrupt bastard with Sepp Blatter?

What's with this new trend of taking sabbatical? Both Klopp and Ancelotti want to take some. Look like both City and Pool will not change manager this summer. Unless Sammy sneaks in...
Di Matteo too
Ancelotti needs a back operation so you could say his sabbatical is essential that he has a break so he can return to full health.
next year those two are gonna be available along with Pep. If AW retires too I can see a big fight for managers in EPL.
Moyes will be available too if AW retired
+4
Not sure about Klopp though , I read some where that he want to take 6 months off and then look for a Job and also read his interview in which he said he is 0.00% tired .

It surely have to do with the demand of performing year in year out .
I question why a manager needs a six month sabbatical, if it's due to health problems I understand. But that is a long time for a modern day football manager.
+1
AW retires they'll all try to get the Emirates job lmao
They've got stressful jobs man and the wealth to do so. Great managers are always going to be in demand.
Wenger can manage for another 20 years, like Clint Eastwood

Well they take sabbatical because they can afford it while waiting for the best chances to come along
Divock Origi has been named in Ligue 1's worst team of the season.

So much for the 'better than Lukaku' argument
+9
^That means he's not and can never be better than Lukaku huh?

Mmmm k.
+6
1) 19 years old
2) Scores an average amount of goals for a striker in the Ligue 1
3) Part of a team that sucks and barely provided chances for him

How does that amount to him being s**t all of a sudden? Yeah, he's no Hazard, but Hazard played at Lille when they were at their best with some really great players. Hazard was their star, but then again, he'd have been the star in top teams in England even 4 years ago as well. English fans are the worst; a new talent is either a new Messi or completely s**t. How about something in between?
+9
"English fans are the worst; a new talent is either a new Messi or completely s**t."

You should'v just started your paragraph with that

Anyways, I was just smirking when I saw that, I mean the wankfest that was going on post World Cup on Origi was funny, with people already labeling him miles better than Lukaku, not that I really care.
+7
Lol "Not that I really care." It would seem that you do care at least a little to feel the need to post this.
+5
His only 19 year old! I think people are looking to much into it but the media is a real bitch. His really young and has so much to learn but his shown signs of quality which is good. Now if he can get some decent amount of games with Liverpool, his development will continue for the better. 8 goals despite his number of appearances isn't bad.
+2
ok that's enough ego stroking, hazard was nowhere near poty 4 years ago. lets not start re-writing history, hazard was good but he wasnt even the best player at chelsea 4 years ago.

it doesn't take much to be a better footballer than lukaku, his first touch is atrocious, i think the origi kid has potential but he's far from being a top player at this point. he looked great at the world cup but i haven't seen him since for the national team. guys like benteke are just a lot further along their development
+2
^ He wasn't at Chelsea 4 years ago, but he was POTY in France then.

Anyway i was surprised when i read about Origi also, especially with all the praise he received at the WC (including from myself)
+5
Point was - Is Origi better than Lukaku right now...is he??

Stop constructing your theorirs about how he can be better than Lukaku..yes ofcourse everyone has potential and nobody said he can't be better in future.
get in there, Jeroen! defend those Belgians ;)

but in all seriousness, this "award" means jack. He is 19 and will likely be a late bloomer, lets just see how he gets on.

He might boss the EPL much like a previous Lille export - Gervinho.



+2
Oh my bad theo, but my point remains hazard wasn't going to be the best player in the league 4 years ago if he was on an English team. That's what jeroen is implying.
@BluFFmaster

"English fans are the worst"

I think the Spanish "fans" take that prize sir. Fans of a team by the name of Real Madrid boo their best players undeservedly so. The team also sack good managers on almost a yearly bases, but that's sorta out of their hands.
+3
choose one if you dare Origi or Sanogo:p
@PaRa

That'd be the ultras of Spanish and Italian football. Or maybe the racist ones. They're like the hooligans we eliminated from English football. About time Spain and Italy do the same.
@PaRa: Actually, I said that. And I stand by it, although I aimed at the fans of English teams around the globe, not necessarily the people in England. It's quite obvious why they're so melodramatic: the press stimulates it by spouting nonsense all the time and portraying players black and white. Rooney is the best example, especially after an England game: he's either the best English player ever, or a fat waste of space. Rooney is neither; he's one of the best English players of his generation, perhaps THE best, but he too has poor games, poor seasons even.

Spanish fans aren't the worst; the fans of Barcelona and especially Real Madrid are. This too is logical: they're incredibly spoiled and expect excellence from every single player every single game. Some of those are so mind-blowingly terrible supporters (read: people who support their team, not just fans) that they boo their living legends when they have a less than decent game once or twice. But those fans are a minority of the total fanbase of these two giants and the fans of other Spanish teams are very loyal and great supporters.

I shouldn't have said 'English fans', because I actually meant 'fans of very popular clubs'. I'm one of them, most people here are, but typically our fanbases have a bunch of fans who just started supporting the club when they were at a peak sportively and therefore expect the same every year. They are the first to dismiss players when they have a bad spell of games but also the first to praise a player into the skies after a good game, only to shoot him down the next.
@Jeroen
You've got to be kidding. Sure, we do have a large amount of ingrates as fans, but at no stage are ingrates ever worse than racists or those that resort to violence. The latter are the scum of mankind and quite justifiably the worst. English football used to have them, remember those hooligan scum? I'm glad they're gone, other countries ought to do the same.
LGW, what are you talking about mate? I'm not sure where you get that comparison with racists or hooligans from.
lol, origi's 3 years younger than lukaku, wouldn't read too much into it. i don't think he's expected to be liverpool's savior at all, i wouldn't be surprised to see him loaned out one more season esp. if benteke comes and sturridge can stay healthy.
Beautiful Montage of the season by skysports. :))
