who in your opinion is the least appreciated player at the club you support or your country.....

i think makelele is under appreciated because of lampard taking most of the praise in midfield and the little praise thats left goes to the wingers!! when makelele is gone we will see gaping hole in defence

Probabley Neil Sullivan, he has been on form all season but rarely gets mentioned top class keeper, and he used to play for Chelsea.

Loopy about Lupoli
For the rest of the country, i.e. people outside of Norfolk, the most under-rated player is Jason Shackell. 90% of the time he is solid as a rock, but he is prone to have the odd game where everything goes balls up.

Amongst Norwich fans, I'd say Adam Drury. He's very consistent and reliable, but most Norwich fans don't seem to acknowledge that a great deal.

Welcome back...
Hamann never gets the credit he deserves but even more so I would say Hyypia.

Hyypia since he signed for Liverpool has been an absolute rock, consistent, ever present and a world class player. He has played in one of the meanest defences in Europe for about 7 years now.

For England I think Beckham is ridiculously underrated by the fans as is Owen. Anyone apart from Rooney to be honest.

I also think Joe Cole will have a very big say this year if England are to go anywhere.

Toure isn't really appreciated by the press. He should be talked about in the same vein as Henry when it comes to the contribution he brings to the team.

Toure is one of the best defenders in the world in my opinion. He doesn't get much praise outside of Arsenal fans.

Makelele is a very underated player too. Every one talks about Lampard and Terry, but one of the reasons why Chelsea's backline is so solid is because of Makelele. He is one of the best holding midfielders in the world, if not the best.

Makelele, Bellamy and Harewood are really underrated, but i guess that has something to do with Bellamys character rather then his performances.

i'm having dejavu with this thread...

but anyways... for Liverpool, Riise deserves alot more credit, he's one of the top 5 left backs in the world but is never mentioned in the same breath.

for the New England Revolution it has to be Sharlie Joseph, a huge Grenadian DMF he's got a nack for scoring on set pieces and can break up any attack, he should be in Europe in 2 years.

for the USA, Paolo Mastroeni, he is a world class deystroyer but never gets the credit for it, should be plying his trade in Europe but for some reason hasn't gotten the call.

No hes not the whole of chelsea love him, the commentators are always talking about how important he is , jose loves him just because hes not on roman's boat and because hes not on the back of the papers doesn't mean hes not appreciated. He'll never be mentioned with lampard and terry because there match winning players.

I think Gilberto of arsenal, Since vieira's left hes slowly began to take responsability in the centre of midfield and tried to fill his boots of the big man. Does his job on the field everytime, gives 100% in every perforamce.

I also have the same impression of Sissoko

I'd agree with you if you're talking about the Gilberto of the last 2-3 months but over the course of the season he's been shite. At times he can't header, tackle or make a 10 yard pass and it's painful to watch.

Sissoko is very much like that - but all of the time.

It's been happening for years now. He's more important for chelsea than Lampard is IMO

theres been a thread like this before I think...called Unsung Heroes or something...

anyway...
Makelele - this guy holds Chelsea together and did the same for Real Madrid.

J.Cole - up until midway through the season I thought he was very underrated amongst both Chelsea & England fans!

Xavi - I think amongst the Barca superstars(Ronaldinho, Eto'o, Puyol etc.) this guy is also a key part, Iniesta's had to come in and do his job this season aswell.

Toure - I think hes soooooooooo underrated its unbelievable, every game this guy is shit hot! Diaby's also a great young talent.

Rodriguez - for Rangers, he was injured for a while but since he came back hes been a sturdy defender and I can see him with a great future at the club when le Guens here :D pity Big Marv got dropped & not Kyrgiakos!

Stefan Klos - for years he kept the shutters up, then when he got injured & Waterreus came Klos never really got back into the team, hes had an accident aswell-he fell off his bike and will be out for around 4 months, so I reckon he'll just hang up the boots/gloves :(

Don't see how Makelele is underrated, try watching any Chelsea game, the commentators are guaranteed to set aside at least 1 minute of Makelele wanking time. Deserved though, tremendous player.
 

Papa

Thank you for reading.
and the ironic thing is that they all say hes such an unsung hero....if you all say that its not as true really is it?

Gilberto Silva
Gilberto isn't underrated. He's done well in patches but quite frankly there has been long periods when he's been total shite. I think we all realized what he did when he was out last season. To me he gets just about what he deserves.
