Who is it?
I voted D) Messi (as best ever).
This is kind of an oddly formed question.
The options provided would form the question : 'Who is football's biggest wanker'? , to me.
Biggest diva? Neymar.
Biggest ... hm I dunno how to describe it without being vulgar... biggest "c-word"? Tie between Ramos and Suarez. And Raul Garcia, but people have forgotten about him.
Best collection of whiners, divers, cheaters, injury-fakers, ref-surrounding dudes out there? Atletico Madrid, no contest.
Charlie Adam. Only player I can think of that consistently tries to injure players (Roy Keane did of course too - at least once).
Neymar and C. Ronaldo really don't deserve to be on that list. Dele Alli, Ashley Young etc. are just as bad when it comes to simulation. Ashley Young was ridiculous at one point.
Not defending Neymar, but I can at least understand why it is annoying getting kicked around the way he occasionally does. The problem is the refs can't really know when he should be protected and when he is just faking it.
Ramos is the most unlikable of today's top players now that Pepe is gone from the spotlight. I love players that play with an edge, but they have just taken it too far. Gerrard was the same, but not as often as Ramos and Pepe. So cowardly.
I "rate" Suarez just as high.
Whenever Barca loses and I feel bad for Rakitic or Messi, I can comfort myself by knowing Suarez lost as well.
Lucas Hernandez is climbing rapidly when it comes to faking injuries. Boy screams and rolls around like he was shot 3-4 times per game.
But to be fair, he does come from the Atleti culture.
Atleti are the kings, especially with Costa back. But Barca and Real have their own "s*ithousing superstars".
You really don't have to go outside of those 3 both for brilliant football and absolutely disgraceful on-pitch behavior.
Yes. I forgot Suarez. So agree.
Players today dive too much. They don't have respect for the game like old players did
Hmm, doesn't seem to work, whatever:
Suarez plays with an edge to be sure, but Ramos is easily worse. Laughable comparison.
the more rolling around, the less hurt one actually is
hence I voted for Neymar
Rivaldo and Mark van Bommel come to mind from earlier days.
In that case, cue an influx of votes for Glasgow Celtic, 1967 (as best ever of everything).
Juventus, can't win against liars and cheaters.
Give me Neymar here.
Messi for being the Frankenstein monster of Barcelona medical staff.
