    Anyone who said Zidane, Ronaldo or Thierry should literally cut the fingers they used to write the post with, Thierry Henry is probably the most underrated player of all time, he was literally a grade above everyone in the premier league for a good 4-5 years, and this was during the golden years of the prem, anyone who says scholes is also stupid, for someone who has held his place in a team which has won so much is so stupid

    im sorry but so many people here don't know **** about football

    Henry was better than both those two in the PL.

    Sure they were fantastic for a few seasons and they have gone on to amazing things in Spain, but Henry did it year in year out for Arsenal.

    Henry is definitely the best PL player of all time IMO.
    well everyone has a opinion mine is shearer scored the most goals and at a weaker team

    At various points in his Arsenal career, Gerrard, Lampard, Bergkamp, Ronaldo and RVN were on his level

    Henry was nowhere near over-rated. Bloke would tear defences like the ones in the PL this season apart and win the league on his own.

    Lol at Ronaldo being overrated basing it on his madrid days.

    Ronaldo was what Cristiano and Neymar are today back in his prime.

    Scholes is slightly overrated but he was still a great player who could dictate the game like no other English player. Not as much of a beast as Gerrard or a goalscoring machine like Lamps but they are all the same.

    Henry disagrees, and personally I seriously don't know how anyone puts Gerrard ahead of Scholes when the former never even lead a single one of his teams to a PL title.

    Scholes is overrated in the sense that United fans think he's the greatest midfielder to have ever lived.

    Pele is an obvious choice.

    Cantona, Henrik Larsson..

    Such hyperbole

    The most underrated player of all time will be somebody that history has pretty much forgotten, not a player that is widely considered by fans and pros to be one of the greatest strikers of his generation.

    That's awful logic.

    Football is a team sport, Scholes simply played in far superior teams to Gerrard, and there are many great players who had careers that were not as decorated as players who were clearly inferior to them.

    Bet you think Messi has to win the World Cup 'on his own' before he can be considered the best player ever.

    please go back to supporting your generic and fake teams in America before commenting on a league you probably have so little knowledge about

    Ronaldinho is overrated. People remember him at peak but they don't factor in consistency. Henry is GOAT level - closest thing to Messi/Ronaldo I've ever seen.

    Nedved is by far the most underrated.

    Scholes isn't overrated, everybody realises he's the best midfielder in the last 80 years, excluding Zidane.

    The opinions of one man doesn't mean much. I didn't put Gerrard ahead of scholes(they're different players with different attributes to their game) but Cristiano Ronaldo hasn't won a World cup while Muller has won a World cup and a Champions league being a key part of the teams, does that mean he's better than Ronaldo or what?

    Probably shouldn't include CLs as part of your point because Ronaldo has more than Muller

    Posts like this pretty much sum up why people tend to think MU fans are idiots.
