Hyperbole and Irish sporting achievement go hand-in-hand. We're quick to dub anybody with a semblance of sporting talent as the best thing since sliced pan without ever having seen them in action.
However, for one reason or another, some folks slip through the net.
It could be for a multitude of reasons. Certain Irish players weren't fancied by managers whilst in their pomp, some in their post-career lives have rubbed people up the wrong way, and some have just vanished from memory.
So, with this theme in mind, the three lads on The Balls.ie Football Show aimed to find out just which Irish player of Premier League era is the most underrated.
With such unquantifiable criteria in mind, there are a multitude of former Irish internationals to rank. Rank them yourself below and let us know what players we missed out on.
