    Could even be Ramos himself, or a bot.
    No doubt. Ramos' biggest fanboy/girl.

    Now that Pepe no longer is here to run the defense, this guy is finally being exposed as the mediocre defender - from a tactical view point - he is. But hey, at least he managed to stay on the field after an early yellow, so there's that...

    Ramos is top class defender, one bad season when whole team is struggling doesnt change that.


    All thought he is not most intelligent defender, but as a defender he is also pretty good in attack

    Sure, in terms of physicality. In terms of pretty much anything else, not so much.

    Ramos isn't bad but he gets definitely overrated by some Madridistas who rate him as best CB.
    He can't be best because there was a clear gap between him and Pepe in quality.

    Good performance, he can defend when he focus, which isnt that often tbf.
    Picked up another record yesterday, most yellow cards in CL-history, he is probably happy about that, he is going after every card-record there is, surely its on purpose.

    He's like this 70% of the time. Other 20 is his rubbish self and 10 when he is good but gets sent off.
    People are boring.

    True. He somehow is in those other 30% in the clasicos though... Rarely plays great in them.

    Too much emotional attachment to everything involved in these games. The legacy to live up to, captaincy, teammates from both club and country... There were multiple times when he was good in Clasicos and even saved the day. Look at the Camp Nou game in 2016. He's never the GOAT who stops Barcelona, but definitely he is a captain who leads and takes the blame when it goes wrong.

    It's still baffles me how at 31 with his resume he gets called an overrated defender. Like I said he's at least solid 70% of the time which is what you expect from defenders.

    Ramos - Pique must be the craziest, most overrated, most decorated CB pair ever. Many of the things said about Ramos are said about Pique too. They're just unconventional defenders. Take a lot more risks and end up looking very bad at times when they get exposed. In the long run though, when the going gets tough, they show up with some exceptions.

    They're really not overrated though. The word is misused in their context. They're risky, but in a team with offense rooted into how the club plays your defenders need to know how to play forward. Put a slow turtle into RM or Barca and they'd never stick. Look at the choice of defenders Pep prefers. It's always the risky and level-headed pairing. The only time these defenders ever get in trouble is against teams who are truly great on offense and can compete in the midfield. Which against Barca and RM is not easy and only happened handful of times in this decade.

    They're not overrated. Just that their role is misunderstood by the casual viewer.

    True. In my experience, they've been called overrated by EPL fans in particular, who think any defender has to be in the Stam/Carragher/Vidic/Terry mold to be good.

    Latin football fans rarely call them overrated.
