In my opinion the most under rated players I watch all of the time are Aaron Lennon & Stilian Petrov.

Aaron Lennon's movement on the ball is abseloutely amazing and his speed, control and ability to pass defenders is staggering considering he is only 21 (?).
The media however, are constantly referring to Duff, Robben, C. Ronaldo and their like as the best wingers and constantly recieve praise.

Stilian Petrov is lethal in front of goal. He has not scored this season, but he has been very unlucky. He creates openings and chances for himself very easily and understands football in its rawest form. Something which is hard to find in a player these days.
Personally, I think he is level with Paul Scholes, who was pointed out earlier.

I've just got back from the worst England performance I have ever seen. At the moment, I've very tempted to give the game a miss and just find a nice bar in Zagreb.

Croatia will beat England on Wednesday

McClaren is a ginger Sven and we need to sack him now
Then don't get Zeljko Kranjcar as your coach, tied in Malta :x

Sadly, there is no way the Ginger Sven will get sacked because:

1. We are still paying the last useless manager £13,000 every day
2. Our Football Association are run by idiots

Toifilou Maoulida. I just found out about this player. He's pretty amazing striker from olympique de marseilles. This is number two team in Orange 1 league right now. You guys should keep your eyes on this guy and cheer for the Marseilles to beat Lyons..

Yeah Marseilles is the team I support in Ligue 1, they have got a lot of very very good players that are underrated or not looked at because Ligue 1 is not as entertaining or skillfull as the other leagues. Watch out for Samir Nasri, I think he has the potential to be the next Zizou. So many good qualities and he was formed at the club. The way he dribbles is like how messi dribbles but he isnt as fast. He just weaves in and out as if he was practicing with cones. Marseilles has a solid team this year.

I don't know why people are hating on Ronaldinho. Maybe he hasn't been as flashy as last season or maybe he isn't always 100%, but that's normal. It is expected to have dips in form. The players are not machines. Even though he has recieved a lot of criticism he saved Barca a lot of times this season. When Eto'o was out there was more pressure on Ronaldinho because somebody had to score those decisive goals. He has scored around 20 goals in la liga give the guy some props.
