Which answer is the right one?

  1. Potential world class player destroyed by injuries

  2. Overrated from day one and is at his true level

    Don't think his true ceiling is/was anywhere near where most people thought it was - with or without injuries. Injuries certainly took their toll, and if he had stayed healthy, I think he would still be playing for us. However, don't think we would be talking about a Ballon D'Or candidate.

    His style of play invited tackles, which I always hated. Dribbled too long/close to defenders, and would put his body in the way drawing a foul. That's not great offensive midfield play in my view.

    Potential to be a very good player. World class is probably a stretch IMO.

    - injuries
    - smoking
    - weird life decisions
    - weight gain
    - unwillingness to adapt style to avoid injury

    before he got injured he was just below fabregas' level imo, would have had a breakout season
