A lot of players. I must know half of them. I wonder how they make these lists T.B.H.


It's always fun to see old lists. You can see who failed or not.

In 2009 101 goals listed the 10 most promising youngesters in the world:

1. Kun Aguero (19): With all the talk of Barcelona’s brilliant Argentinian Lionel Messi, it has been easy to forget about Atletico Madrid’s own diminutive gem. Kun, or Sergio as he is known to some, has been in magnificent form this season both in La Liga and the UEFA Cup. He became the youngest-ever player in the Argentinian top flight when he turned out for Independiente in 2003 at the tender age of 15. Quick, inventive and with a superb first touch, Aguero is starting to hit the headlines in Spain almost as frequently as his good pal Lionel. (See clips here.)

2. Karim Benzema (19): Benzema has taken France's Ligue 1 by storm so far this season. He’s the division’s out-and-out top marksman, hitting the net 11 times for champions Lyon already. Tall and powerful, Benzema has taken his good domestic form onto the international scene where he has scored three times in six appearances. It is somewhat unsurprising that his recent performances have attracted the likes of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who was reported to be lining up a gigantic offer for the hottest prospect in French football. (See clips here.)

3. Bojan Krkic (17): A record-breaking prodigy, Bojan scored an unbelievable 960 goals in seven years while playing for Barcelona’s youth sides. In 2007 he led Spain to victory in the UEFA Under-17 Championships, scoring the only goal of the final win over England. Since then he has opened his La Liga account for Barcelona and become the youngest player to appear in a Champions League game, when he came off the bench in Barca’s opening-night win over Lyon. (See clips here.)

4. Giovani Dos Santos (18): Not only does the kid look a bit like his team-mate Ronaldinho, but he also plays like him. Giovani has wonderful balance and trickery, and is now a fixture in Barcelona’s first-team squad. Like Bojan, he was a revelation at Under-17 level, playing an integral role in Mexico’s World Cup win in 2005. It was in that tournament where he began to make a name for himself, being voted the tournament's second-best player. The precocious talent who pipped him to the post was…… (See clips here.)

5. Anderson (19) Anderson shot to stardom two years ago when he was the hero of one of the most bizarre games in Brazilian league history. Playing for his boyhood club Gremio in the second division, he scored the winning goal which took his side back up to the top flight. What made the goal extra special was that Gremio only had seven men on the pitch at the time. Calm in possession with a blistering burst of pace, he quickly moved to FC Porto, who in turn sold him on to Manchester United for £17m. His first year with the Premier League champions was supposed to be one in which he would slowly settle into the side. However, two months into the season and he is already pulling the strings in the United midfield. (See clips here.)

7. Hatem Ben Arfa (20): It says a lot about one so young to be called into his national side instead of experienced goal machine David Trezeguet. That’s exactly what happened to Ben Arfa earlier this month when he took the Juventus striker’s place in the French squad for their Euro 2008 qualifiers. Ben Arfa, who rejected the chance to represent Tunisia in the 2006 World Cup, is more of a goal-maker then a goal-taker, and his subtle, skilful style acts as a perfect foil for his powerful Lyon team-mate Benzema. (See clips here.)

8. Miguel Veloso (21): Veloso rose to prominence at this summer’s Under-21 tournament and is rumoured to be a target of practically every big club in Europe. A holding midfielder with a fabulous range of passing and strong in the tackle, the son of former Benfica legend Antonio has been in stupendous form for Sporting Club de Portugal so far this season. One should expect to see his flowing locks at pastures new sooner rather then later. (See clips here.)

9. Ryan Babel (20): Liverpool pulled off a real coup when they landed Holland’s most exciting youngster this past summer. Although he is yet to light up the Premier League, Babel has all the makings of a top player. With fantastic pace, bewitching balance and a cool head in front of goal, he will surely gain a regular spot at Anfield soon. There is an argument that if he had been playing under a more imaginative and less cautious boss than Rafael Benitez, he may have had a greater impact in England by now. (See clips here.)

10. Alexandre Pato (18): As if one Brazilian magician wasn’t enough, AC Milan spent £16m on bringing Pato to the San Siro. Nicknamed “The Duck”, he will be allowed to play for the Rossoneri from January 2008. Spotted playing futsal in Brazil at the ripe old age of three, he has never looked back. He scored on his debut for Internacional, and after only one year playing with the Brazilian side, Milan came calling. (See clips here.)

In 2008, I found this stuff from wtf soccer ticket:

Sergio Aguero, 19, Atletico Madrid, striker
Yet another Argentine youngster who has been tagged “the next Maradonna”. Aguero joined Atletico aged just 17 in June 2006 from Independiente for a club-record fee of £15.75m. Struggled to cope with the pressure in his debut season but has already scored 12 goals in 22 games this term.

Karim Benzema, 20, Lyon, striker
Came through the ranks at Lyon and has caught the eye of Arsenal, Real Madrid and Juventus after scoring 12 goals in 16 matches this season. Made his international debut for France in March and has netted three times for Les Bleus in eight games. Arsene Wenger described him as “an immense revelation”.

Breno, 18, Bayern Munich, defender
Brazil Under-20 skipper who will join Bayern Munich on January 1. Bayern paid Sao Paulo around £8.5million for the skillful central defender. Ex-Brazil and Bayern striker Giovani Elber described Breno as “an absolutely stunning prospect” after he agreed his big-money move.

Macauley Chrisantus, 17, Hamburg, striker
Manchester United , Tottenham, Arsenal, Manchester City were all interested in signing Chrisantus after his exploits at this year’s FIFA Under-17 World Cup. The scintillating striker fired seven goals in seven games and was the top scorer as Nigeria won the competition. Joined Hamburg in November 2007.

Denilson, 19, Arsenal, midfielder
Brazilian star who is a regular fixture in the Arsenal youthful Carling Cup sides. Bought from Sao Paulo in August 2006 for £3.4m despite just four starts for the club. All-round midfielder who is comfortable going forward but also a tenacious tackler.

Franco Di Santo, 18, Chelsea, striker
Argentine wonderkid who will join Chelsea in January for £3.4m from Chilian side Audax Italiano. Like Lucas Leiva at Liverpool, he holds an Italian passport and will be able to play for Chelsea immediately. May struggle to break into Avram Grant’s star-studded team but should earn a few run outs in cup competitions in 2008.

Giovani dos Santos, 18, Barcelona, striker
Came to prominence in 2005 when he was one of stars of the Mexico team that won the FIFA Under-17 World Cup. Has been a regular feature for Barcelona this season and has managed to keep Ronaldinho out of the starting XI. Already has four caps for Mexico. Now plays for Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League.

Stevan Jovetic, 18, Partizan Belgrade, striker
A £7m target for Manchester United after becoming the top scorer in the Serbian league with 11 goals. Was named captain of the Montenegro Under-21 side aged just 17 and has already made his full international debut. A creative striker who likes to drop deep and run at defenders. He is also a deadly-accurate finisher.

Bojan Krkic, 17, Barcelona, striker
Hailed as Spain’s answer to Lionel Messi by Barcelona fans after scoring over 800 goals in the Catalan club’s youth teams. Broke the record as the youngest ever player to feature in a Champions League match in September 2007. A month later, he became Barcelona’s youngest La Liga goalscorer.

Toni Kroos, 17, Bayern Munich, midfielder
Named player of the tournament at the 2007 FIFA Under-17 World Cup and has already made his Bundesliga and European debuts for Bayern Munich. A creative, goalscoring midfielder, Kroos shone at youth level for both club and country. Bayern general manager Uli Hoeness has already earmarked him for the revered No10 shirt.

Lucas Leiva, 20, Liverpool, midfielder
Signed for Liverpool in the summer from Copa Libertadores finalists Gremio after winning the Brazilian Footballer of the Year award. Likened to Steven Gerrard before his move to England, the box-to-box midfielder has already featured heavily in Rafa Benitez’s side and should be a key player in 2008.

Lulinha, 17, Corinthians, midfielder
Transfer target for Italian champions Inter Milan after starring for Brazil’s Under-17 side. Scored 12 goals in seven matches during the South American U-17 Championships before being one of the stars of the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup. The tricky attacking midfielder has an eye for goal and is already being touted as the long-term successor to Ronaldinho.

Alexandre Pato, 18, AC Milan, striker
Known as ‘the duck’, Pato shot to fame when AC Milan shelled out £15m for his services in the summer — despite rules stopping him from playing until January 3. Milan have high hopes for Pato, with president Silvio Berlusconi claiming he expects the youngster to score 30 goals between January and the end of the season. Brazil coach Dunga has dubbed him “the new Ronaldo”.

Ivan Rakitic, 19, Schalke, midfielder
Niko Kranjcar and Luka Modric may have ended England’s Euro 2008 qualifying hopes but new England boss Fabio Capello will have to watch out for Rakitic in 2008. The Swiss-born attacking midfielder is the latest Croatian star to catch the eye and was snapped up by German champions Schalke in the summer.

Adel Taarabt, 18, Tottenham, midfielder
Young French midfielder who has established himself as a regular member of the Tottenham match-day squad. Compared to Zinedine Zidane before his move to North London, the left-footed trickster has already wowed the White Hart Lane faithful with his ambitious runs and long-range strikes.

Carlos Vela, 18, Arsenal, striker
The Gunners snapped up Vela after he finished top scorer in the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in 2005 — a feat that Cesc Fabregas achieved two years earlier. The Mexican has been on loan in Spain for the past two seasons and will return to North London in January. An exciting prospect who should make his Arsenal debut this term.

These lists are always doomed to failure, but there is certainly entertainment value. Interesting to follow the 'where are they now?' 10 years down the line:

On the oldest list you put people like Baros and Cisse as failures but compare them to:

Cherno Samba - Greek second division..
David Prutton - Swindon Town
Jeremie Aliadiere - injured and without a club
Ramon Calliste - not even got a wiki page

to name just a few, and they are massive success stories!


The new list makes it a bit easy for itself by saying 1987 or later - players who are 22/23, you've got a pretty good idea by then of how they are progressing. There's players in that list who have 40/50+ international caps - to call them 'prospects' at that point is stretching it! Even still it makes some odd picks - e.g. Freddy Adu Erm

Players born 1990 or later would be a more interesting list (and more likely to get things spectacularly wrong Smile ).

coincidentally I was revisiting a similar thread earlier this week - the one on World Soccer Magazine's top 100 youngsters.

What's the relevance of the players in bold?

whose criteria puts the 'failed' besides a player?

Like debaser I'm surprised to see Milan Baros classed as a failure considering his achievements, particularly when the likes of Baldo di Gregorio, David Odonkor, Mauro Rosales and Emiliano Dudar weren't.

Why is there a failed next to Aleksandr Hleb...

He's had a less than ideal career, but still better than most players on that list.

It's difficult - the most informed person in the world could end up looking silly in makings lists like this. But predictions such as this hardly help:

9. Ryan Babel (20): Liverpool pulled off a real coup when they landed Holland’s most exciting youngster this past summer.

Dutchies like hyping their own as much as the next country, but he was never Holland's most exciting youngster.

Maybe because he's having a shit season... Joking. There are quite a few players missing from this list.
Hleb never successed where ever he went unfortunately. I'm not saying that he is finished...

He played champions league football for several seasons, was an excellent player for Arsenal who was clearly missed when he left. Compared to some people who have ended up nowhere, its weird to highlight him. They cant all be complete worldbeaters...there's 100 of them.

Fail in a sense he completely fucked up his talent. But still he scored goals everywhere he played...

The failure is exemplaric if you look at where he stands today... He doesn't throw with scissors anymore but he is tad overweight.

He now plays for ajax 10 kilo overweight (really shocking to see him move right now. I searched for a you tube film because there are moving pictures about him getting in as a sub for Ajax...) and he only get paid when he plays. It's a pity the guy who was so talented fucked up his footballing career that much...

Mido is still only 27 and has had 10 clubs in 10 years.

Yikes

The story about him earning £1000 a week at West Ham was a bit misleading, he took a paycut to go there, and West Ham only paid him £1000 a week but Middlesbrough were paying him too - although I think ghe had to buy himself out of his loan deal with Zamalek.

He seems to have a false dawn at every club he goes to, maybe one day he'll sort himself out or perhaps he'll do a Collymore and retire early then regret it forever.

He's clearly overweight.

Since leaving Ajax he went to Ajax, Celta Vigo, Marseille, Roma, Tottenham Hotspur, Middlesbrough, Wigan Athletic, Zamalek, West Ham United and back to Ajax.

The funny thing is that he is only 27. Will he beat (or maybe he has already) Anelka in the number of clubs.

Back to the topic, I read this on l'equipe just now, Lukaku (who's not even on the list) the wonderkid from Anderlecht, says he will join Chelsea and that the only time people will see him cry will be when he will sign over there. Lol

It's clearly not like the professional world when you only are able to be transfered once (or sometimes twice) a year.
