Is he the most overrated young player ever? I mean, other players ha e been rated higher than him at that age, but all that I can remember were proven in Europe. And rarely were they compared to the elite players of all time like Neymar is compared with Messi.

I'm not trying to troll or stir sh*t up. Just asking a question.

No that would be Gareth Bale closely run by Freddy Adu.

Not 2 months ago people here were calling him underrated. So I find this unlikely.

Uh. Lets see. Quite a lot of people on this forum do. Pele does, as well as quite a few other big names in the footballing world. Plenty of publications do.

Pele once said Diouf was one of the best players in the world.

The guy is a (flaccid) dick, or a troll. I don't know.

Yeah, Pele and Goal.com do.Pele never even said that Neymar was better anyway, he just said that Neymar is a more complete player.Any normal football fan doesnt compare him to Messi.

I think its perfectly fine to rate him as a top player even if he has never played in europe.He was the best player in SA for years and has been one of the best international performers,the guy already has 24 goals for NT and he is only 21.not to mention him raping Spain

No, that would imply Nerman isn't that good. He is a pretty damn good player. I think he might be a tad overrated but you're making him sound average.

Only Ronaldo has scored more for Brazil at the same age.

I'm also pretty certain Neymar has created a shit tonne more than he did.

Definitely sounds overrated to me.

What friendlies? he performed better at the Confederations Cup than he did in pretty much all the friendlies leading up to it lol.

Yeah he was good in the confederations cup. I can't be bothered looking it up but I'm sure he his international record is built mostly on friendlies, and he was a complete disaster in the copa america

I don't see anyone in this forum that's a barca fan claiming we're going to win trophies based on Neymar.
if anything the Barca fans are still butthurt over Thiago and our lack of defence.
I think The Badger has a point what voices are you hearing in your head buddy.

Disconnect it. Anyways I honestly haven't seen too many people call us a shoe in for everything, especially for just one player. Everyone knows after last season's CL slaughter we have a few things to prove and areas in which to improve. Add a new coach and there's no telling what can happen, good or bad. It's gonna be exciting.
