Not really sure about Bojan anymore. Really disappointing with Roma last year.

The 92's are ridiculous. James Rodriguez, the next big hit out of Porto, also needs a mention.

Not to be too critical but Hoilett is way out of place on that list. Shouldn't be on there at all IMO.

Isco is definitely no lower than 6 and arguably 4 or 5.

Solid list but for the 91's I would have Oscar higher as well as Shaqiri(sp). Canales had 2 major injuries and hasn't played in awhile I would have him much lower sadly.

For the 92's I would switch Lamela with Muniain and have Isco much higher.

Lastly, from what I've seen of Iturbe I would also have him higher but I'm biased.

Solid list, but IMO...

90s: Paloschi should be higher and Welbeck should be off the list.
91s: Shaqiri should be WAY higher and the same with Oscar.
92s: Gotze should be #1, Coutinho and Eriksen should be higher and the same with Isco.
93s: Should switch Lukaku with Bittencourt (he's going to be great). Pogba should be higher as well.
94s: Don't know enough about 94s to make a solid opinion.

Also where the hell is Verratti for the 92s????

I've never been impressed with Countinho. I would definitely take the 6 he had over him plus Eriksen and Isco.

Georgi Milanov could be somewhere on the list for '92ers.

This. Also, Lucas Moura will probably be one of the best players in that age group.

I love Verratti, but here we're talking about OFFENSIVE weapons.
I don't see the problem with him not being ranked in the top 10.

Ranking Griezmann over Oscar however seems amazing to me.

Oh and also, born in 91 and much better than Griezmann are Clément Grenier and Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon for both).
Also worth a HM because he once was a prime prospect : Gael Kakuta.

Pogba should be much higher on the 93ers list and Samed Yesil needs to at the very least be an honorable mention for the 94ers.

89'er high five!...at least you're not turning grey already. I've got very thick hair but I'm starting find more and more of them that are snow white.

1992 is a scary good year. Those 4 first names could all end up being absolute world class players and both Neymar and El Shaarawy look like they could be the ones to succeed Messi and Ronaldo as the best players in the world.

To counter the guys calling for Pogba to be rated higher in the 93 list, it's a list of "offensive weapons", while Pogba has looked absolutely spectacular for his age so far with Juve he's probably going to be a complete box-to-box type midfielder rather than a pure offensive force. I could see the two young Spanish strikers he rated ahead of him having more of an offensive impact in their career.

No offense to Thomas Mueller, but Reus is just on another level than him, he's faster, has a better shot and is a more deadly passer. Mueller's a little taller and is better in the air, but that's about all I can think of that favors Mueller.
