I have to say, it's quite difficult to do it about non-footballers because football is the only sport with the huge meeja coverage and inane analysis of utter bollocks.
Of course, any British boxer that puts 3 wins together is suddenly over-hyped beyond belief.
But you look at the feats accomplished in any other sport and you actually realise just how underhyped they are, and how distorted everything is inside the football bubble.
But, due to my outstanding grasp of football, I believe the following players to be mutton dressed as lamb...
Nicolas Anelka (I saw what the fuss was about when he was 18 or 19, but not since he left Arsenal)
Theo Walcott (That hat-trick for England has done him no favours)
Nemanja Vidic (Would be sent off every other game if he played for any other club in England)
Thomas Muller (funny one this, I was hyping him up before the World Cup, but the WC has really raised expectations)
Wayne Rooney (I was lauding Rooney last season, and he IS immense at times, but quality teams tend to deal with him)
Wesley Sneijder (He's quality, granted, but he's had a purple patch and some lucky WC goals as well)
Gerard Pique (The jury's still out on how well he can defend, which as a defender is pretty important)
Mario Balotelli (To be honest, I think it's only Man City that are over-rating him, but he still deserves to be on the list)
Angel Di Maria (Has bags of talent but I think he's made too big a step from benfica wide man-to WC finals-to Real madrid)
David Silva (He's got everything to prove, and Man City will be the biggest test of his life)
Sergio Busquets (It's lovely to play defensive mid for two teams who seldom give the ball away)
Franck Ribery (Has done well in two countries, France and Germany, but been woeful usually when it matters in big games)
