    Any talented youngster in the world in the last 10 years.

    Internet/social media/hype era made such a mess.

    Yes. A whole lot of criticism against managers for not playing X or Y and the club letting them go for cheap. Only for them to be stuck at some midtable team.

    La Masia kids are overrated amongst some Barca fans but in the general footballing world not an awful amount of noise about them.

    In general, I'd say Pogba around the time of his move back to United, pretty much every club wanted him.

    You should try actually watching some actual matches rather than messing around on FIFA 22 or whatever

    Na .. he is total class .. I am expecting a massive season now after he has gotten used to the hustle and bustle of the PL .

    He has been unlucky this season. He got crocked early on then got Covid19

    Guy had potential, scoring screamers left and right in 2016 & 2017 but somehow (injuries?) he turned to average.

    Adriano, Robinho, El Shaarawy, Hulk, Balotelli, Oscar...and a litany of English players too numerous to list (Start with Jack Wilshere)
    Robinho was a bit underrated for a while I thought, was Madrids only threat for some time but wasn't really taken seriously...
    Oscar was a pretty good player I thought, but maybe very overrated by some yes.

    I think the case with most players over/underrated is that it's done by the same sort of people mistaking some form or even a good run of luck, looking at the players age and making conclusions. Then when they lose form/luck they are suddenly terrible.

    Bojan is a nice case of a player both over and under rated.
    Deep is the hatred that burns in base hearts in the presence of beauty
