I never saw Roberto Baggio do anything special but he always seems to have brilliant in the game before.

Do you listen to Quickly Kevin podcast? There's literally a weekly feature on how Baggio was over rated.

Akinbiyi coast £2.25 mil - credit to Simon Jordan for backing his manager, but you can see why Parrish likes to retain some control of transfers. I am still to be convinced by Mason Mount, but it took me (and many others) a long time to appreciate Frank Lampard. Benteke has to be up there sadly, although he has rallied. Phil Jones lived off some public flattery from Fergie but he's been rumbled, and Marouane Fellaini was massively over priced when he went to Man U.

It was reported that with the transfer, wages and agent fees Harland would have cost Chelsea £500m over five years so they signed Lukaku instead.
What would Jimmy Greaves be worth in this market?

And Greaves was totally reliable, if it was goals you wanted.
In most respects, football is, and hopefully always will be a team game, A good player canít always influence a bad team, and the fall out usually lands on the high priced player.
A high price in one setting can be totally warranted, In another a waste of money.

I wouldn't agree with that. There was a lot of hype around him when he was young as he clearly had lots of natural talent and potential but clubs, fans and players quickly realised he was a liability and most haven't wanted to touch him with a bergepole for years now.

If you really think Pele and George Best were overrated, I must be watching a different game or through another pair of glasses!

They were both geniuses on the football field, two of the best players to have ever played the game!

George not at his Best broke our player Ian Evans leg. Unfortunately, he was just a pi$$ head and an embarrassment later in his career.

Quite a thought that he cost about £25m more than the entire Brentford team who trounced them yesterday.
