Did I tell you that Iniesta is the only player in the world who's been named MOTM in all three finals—WC, UCL, and Euro final?

Tbh I am one of the converted but I will defend zizous Madrid record, he was signed by Madrid quite old, after 01-02 the galaticos generally were for the most part overrated, they made have had the names but they was all aging and they offloaded and signed some players for commercial reasons rather than do what was best for the team.

Black Panther was an average movie and the hype surrounding it made it seem better than it was.

Fair enough, but you could say the same thing about Ronaldo, who didn't even win a CL and was part of Zidane's Madrid team - in fact he never won a title in a top flight league until he joined Madrid.

But I've never seen anyone call him overrated.

Yep, Black Panther is nowhere near Marvel's best and didn't warrant the acclaim it received. Probably the most underwhelmed I've ever been given the expectations I had going in.

I feel the same about Get Out, but it's at least a good, original movie; whereas Black Panther was poor to average at best imo.

R9 isn't overrated because he scored nonstop consistently until his knee injuries. Despite how good he was at Madrid that was only 2/5ths of the player he was when he was a teenager

From 18-21 he scored 135 goals in 153 games in 3 different countries, he would've easily been the best striker of all time if not considered it now had it not been from them two consecutive ruptures

Well he's a striker, he is meant to score.

So how do you judge if Zidane is overrated then?

He is a midfielder.

Btw Ronaldo is the best striker of all time.

Thought Get Out was brilliant but they definitely copped out with the ending. Should've kept the bleaker more realistic one. So many points hit home so well that I was torn between laughter and astonishment. Scarily accurate and can see why it appealed to so many. Might watch again this weekend.

Black Panther definitely overrated but outside of the hype was a different angle and had KDot as the soundtrack.
