    Isn't Lampard an overrated player?

    Frank lampard has to be one of the most overated player's in the world, he has no technical abilities, yet everyone says that he's a worldclass player how can that be, lampard does the simple things very well. when you give him tha ball all he does is shoot no skills or anything. In the second leg of the last 16 in champions league he went absent, he couldn't keep the ball, i couldn't remember the commentator mention his name.

    lol where are you from? Craven cottage?

    Of course his not over rated, quite frankly he doesnt get the deserve he should get from people outside of england.

    And what a place to ask it, this forum has alot of hatres towards English players. Accoridng to them Steven Gerrard is not world class

    On the absolute contrary. One of the best midfielders (and players) in the entire world.

    He is a great player who needs to be with a better coach , a coach who respect people and people respect him . So that Lampard would get more attention .

    right now , no one likes chealse , so Lampard won't look great in people's eyes .

    To say Lampard is overrated is a joke. People just hate him only because he's English and plays for Chelsea.

    Lampard is a legend, he should have won the 'Player of the year' this season. I think he is gonna win it next year

    He's undergoing a recent blip as of late but to no, he's not over-rated. I think he's under-rated by EPL/English haters but outside those group of people, I don't think he's either over-rated nor under-rated.

    And Shahz, you sure about that post, mate? A bit too late for an April Fool's joke.

    I would rate him more world class than Gerrard.

    His shooting ratio is much better than Gerrard, he has good passing and works a lot for the team. He is the only english player I would like to see in my team.

    Also, he is quite intelligent and not as dumb as Stevie-Me.

    Look at the team differences. Lampard plays in a much better team with midfielders that help him get alot more of the ball

    Gerrard is one of a kind. But i really doubt he would do as good as he would in other clubs liek he does in liverpool

    I'd actually prefer Steven Gerrard to Lampard too. But it's a very minor difference and the only reason why is because Gerrard is quite comfortable on the right. If only Sven realises that playing both in the middle is perhaps the most wasteful thing in football...

    A midfield of J.Cole, Parker, Lampard & Gerrard would instantly turn England to one of the main contenders for the World Cup. If you ask me, they aren't, at the moment, because Beckham on the right, compounded with the fact that England's forwards are midget, is a joke and as I've said, Gerrard's & Lampard's ability is limited by the formation.

    He has Xabi Alonso. Xabi Alonso IMHO is one of the 5 best DMs in the world.
    Lampard has also more defensive awareness, means you won't see Lampard playing a stupid pass in his own half, while gerrard does that frequently.

    For me he is not overrated, he was the best player of the last season, it was a mistake give the fifa world player to ronaldinho when he has more years to win it, Lampard will never be as good as last year.
    Right now i rather Gerrard than Lampard anyday

    UhUh, dont let Alonso's great Veron like passing fool you, his still pretty weak in defence.

    Anyway, it really is preference. I think both players are awesome, but i think currently and more consistently Gerrard plays better, but if he were to leave liverpool i dont see him playing asgood. As for Lampard, i think he can be successful where ever.

    He is a classic spanish DM, he has great tactical awareness and his passing is fabulous.

    As said, I would put him among the 5 best. Xavi, maybe Vieira(although not the slowmo Juve Vieira)..ok..I put him among the 3 best. I don't have much better players in my mind right now. Emerson could also mess with him, and Pirlo isn't much better(maybe he has a better shot), and Makelele isn't offensively as useful as him.

    Gerrard, gattuso etc. are no real DMs and Gattuso is a fighter, but his ball skills much inferior to Xabi.
