I know everyone is praising Neymar right now, but why don't we wait until he proves himself against good competition before he's saying he's one of the best in the world. He scored 21 goals last year but it was in La Liga, which is a crap league that only has one other good team aside from Barcelona. Just because he can score against weak teams like Athletic Bilbao, Valencia, Sevilla or Atletico Madrid doesn't mean anything, most of those teams aren't even good enough for the Championship in England. Maybe, just maybe, Atletico Madrid might be good enough to tie with the Blackburn Rovers if they ever play together. And let's not even talk about the Champions League, until Neymar can put in good performances against teams like Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, he can't be considered one of the best. Sure, he played well against PSG and Juventus, but those are crap teams from bottom tier leagues that probably can't even beat Yeovil Town on a good day. Neymar is a good talent, but until he can prove himself against some serious competition like Chelsea or Stoke, he's just another Adnan Januzaj or Jack Wilshere

According to you then Messi needs to prove himself in another league, same for Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo(the Brazilian one) and Ronaldinho were nothing more than Januzaj...

Juventus play in a weak league and get to beat up on teams like Sampdoria and the shell of what used to be AC Milan. They would never be able to defeat a real good team like Man City or Chelsea

Umm Juventus was in the champions league final...
Valencia, Seville, Atletico are good teams and I cant even remember the last time Blackburn were decent.

That said, Neymar is weak..those Brazilians don't tend to last long. Whatever happened to Robinho anyway?

The main reason Robinho "failed" was because European teams thought he should get stronger and it didn't work. He lost speed and agility, but still he wasn't that bad.
