I'm not writing him off after one game. It was a geniune question as to wether other believe he will surpass Messi other than Pele etc. Ive seen him play before and he is undoubly a special talent but I just dont think he will ever reach the heights of Messi. Im inlcined to think he is going more likely to do a Robinho and come to europe show glimpses of genius but never become the best in the world.

Messi did it in the CL against Chelsea last year, Ronaldo does it in most big international tournaments. People are quick to shoot down the talented people in this country because that is just our nature and it's probably why our own superstars will never achieve their full potential and win a world cup. I believe Neymar will prove all the none-believers wrong many times in years to come.

I agree on the principle, but on the specific he was shit at the Olympics too.

I wasn't really writing him off at all, just think its funny he was slating England in the press in the run up to the match saying we rely on Rooney and Rooney is the only "game winning" player we have. Sure I agree on some levels, personally dont think England have the quality to win the world cup. Just think its funny that such a young player thinks he can criticise a whole team, containing older and successful players such as Lampard etc.

Until he plays in the UCL Neymar's just a good player in an average league.
