    Great shout. Tremendous player when fit.

    Paul Mariner and Eric Gates were very decent in that Ipswich side.

    Gary Bailey was a very good keeper. As was Joe Corrigan. Completely overshadowed by Shilton and Clemence
    There are only two man-made objects that can be seen from space.

    1. The Great Wall of China

    2. Low Hill at Christmas

    By that token Phil Parkes , QPR and West Ham and pre that Mervyn Day at west ham both unlucky to be in the Clemence /Shilton shadow.
    Carole Baskin is to blame.

    Owen Hargreaves by people in this country for ages. Shame once people over here realised how good he was, he got a string of injury problems pretty soon after.

    Makelele comes to mind, he was better than kante imo, almost as good as viera but gets zero recognition. Gareth barry too, say what you want about him but hes been super consistant and great at what he did for 20 seasons. Fucking amazing. Another one is ledley king, better than rio in his prime, probably on par with vvd, but had severe chronic problem with his legs, where his knees swolled up and ballooned when he player or exercised. So he would play one game a week, wait for the swelling to go down all week and swim instead of training. Just an absolute physical freak otherwise with a kompany defensive iq.

    King was class but no way better than Rio who was probably the world's best centre half once Maldini retired.

    Makelele - underrated by Real as they got rid of him! But by anyone that knows football, no.

    Lewandowski is a bit underrated. He's such an amazing footballer as well as a supreme goalscorer.

    I wonder how different his career would be if he'd gone to Blackburn.

    My favourite centre forward, all round baller.

    Can't think of many off the top of my head but I always thought Samir Handanvoic was a fantastic keeper who doesn't seem to get much credit.

    Not going as far as underrated but Havard Flo looks a lot better on oldskoolwolves than I remember him being at the time.

    Not sure if it was because he got injuries before he really kicked on but Dean Ashton. Thought he was a fabulous striker.

    Good call. Injury fucked him
