He is really effective at spreading the ball around, collecting the ball from the defence and starting the attack. His passing is very good. Most do not acknowledge that.

Exactly yo! They make the forwards look good by assisting them with an easy goal. Andrea Pirlo is another example. Everyone is like "omg! Del Piero! Luca Toni! Totti!" but fail to realize Pirlo works that midfield like a mad man.

You could say that generous playmakers are generally underrated.

1st franco is from argentina. Dos santos was raised in mexico and chucho found him in mexico and put him in the sub-17. castillo is from mexico and his parents are from uruguay but he was raised in greece. hugo sanchez is mexican raised. He played in puma and america. When he came atletico and then to real madrid where he was a 5 time pichichi (how ever you spell it) marquez is home raised too.

well although Barry is better for the England team in my opinion, Barry does not have the finishing ability Lampard has thats for sure, he probably has the passing ability, but Lampard really does have a good right foot, the problem is thats just about it.....

Has anyone mentioned Guti being heavily heavily underrated yet?

Guti to me is really underrated and overlooked, kinda like Pirlo. I never really noticed his talent and skill until last year against Sevilla...............or someone. Anyways, Real Madrid was trailing 1-0. This guy comes in for Raul in the second half............Little did I know, he was going to be the impact player of the night. He controlled the midfield so amazingly, my jaw dropped. I was like "wtf?! I thought he was sh*t". A through ball to Ruud Van Nistleroy for the equaliser, an even better through ball to Robinho for the win and supplying the ball to Ramos on the wing who crossed it for some dude to head it in for the icing on top.

Either he improved sh**load or he was overlooked because of the major talents they had in the beginning of the 21st century.


EDIT: Okay my bad. The game was against Sevilla. The last goal was actually a through ball to Ramos from Guti, Ramos shot it, deflected and Ruud picked up the garbage with ease.

Here is the video highlights

Again, I reiterate, Guti = underrated.
