most overrated footballer

i think michael owen is the most overrated player in the world because he's won nothing really significant and has terrible ball control. he's a good finisher, clinical at times. but not even top 10 material in my book. he'd struggle to crack the top20 actually.

Shouldn't this be Most Overrated Serie A Player?

I voted other. I disagree about Owen because his finishing is deadly. He gets the "one trick pony" tag due to his speed, but I think he's more complete. He's still gonna grow as a striker, he's still very young.

Apart from Beckham and Owen, you should throw in Anelka. Personally, I think he's the most over-rated player in any sport of all time. It's beyond belief that he's been involved in several big money transfers, with clubs like PSG, Arsenal and even Real Madrid involved. You can tell right away that you have a bad forward when he can't even reach 10 goals. For REAL MADRID. In the SPANISH LEAGUE. All this guy does is cause trouble. Another one of those players, take away the pace, and he'd be lucky to get a game for a pub team.

I think Vieira should be there!

Sev, Owen has won nothing. So?

this dosent make a player good.

IUf he is a great finisher, like he is, I dont see whats wrong with him.

Well I am not a fan of Ronaldo. He scored sucky tap ins and thats oit, yet he listed for prizes, when Rcarlos won much more and yet lost.

there is no justice it seems.

i don't see why it has to be. i like broadening the horizons a little if ya don't mind .....

michael owen is the type of player that thrives in games where the marking has gone south. he may be a deadly finisher but his overall game is not at the level of the elite who produce in any situation. same with paddy kluivert. give him an acre of space and he's unstoppable. god forbid he's actually marked by someone though .....

one player i can't believe i forgot to include is the one and only pippo inzaghi. he has to be up there with owen and kluivert undoubtedy.

who ever said anything about overrated meaning crap or not good ? overrated is self-explantory. these players are good. perhaps just not as good as people make them out to be. like ronaldo who i believe is on the list as well if i'm not mistaken .......

Yeah, and I change my vote to him from other. Ronnie's great, but he's so overrated it's sick.

Figo, Figo, Figo, Figo, Figo, Figo, Figo, Figo, Figo, Figo.

Did I say Figo? Allright, I will say it one more time: FIGO

Especially after that horrible preformance in the WC.
