I am very confident that Ibrahimovic will do magic in FCB. just wait and see. he is full of potentials. honestly i have not seen a player in his first formal match and does these things. i am looking forward to seeing him play again and again.
I used to wait barca matches in order to see Messi dazzling me, now they are two. Up Ibra

It was not offside on Ibra at 0:40 and he should have gotten the ball from Maxwell (?) at 0:34, he moved in a very good scoring position there. And he was unlucky he didn't get more assists.

2:47. Interesting unselfish play. It was probably a good decision, as Messi had a better position to score. I think Messi-Ibra combination can be brilliant when they get to know eachother's movements better.

I belive he will become one of the greatest striker in Barca history. So powerfull and talented guy.

Guardiola is so smart, he knows that many teams will play very defansive against us, and we need powerfull striker for rushing defence. In this moment Ibra is best striker in the world for us and that's a reason for pay big money. You will see, when some tem play defansive against us, and block the area in front of gol, there will be so many chances for Alves and Maxwell to put the ball from the side into area (just like against Chelsea). In that situation Ibra will scoring because he's so powerfull in the air. That is somethig what we missed long time (since Kluivert left). He's other qualities are so good, and because of that he is best possible man for us. I think we will become much danger in the air with Ibra, Chigy, Yaya and Pique, they are all towers.

Those 2 girls that were in the exclusive picture with Ibra and Henrique in the lift of a hotel are celebrating Messi's first goal in the video.

At 2:47, I think Messi is shocked, because you would never see Eto'o do something like that. Messi has to get used to these playmaker abilities from our striker. It is good that we now have a striker that can link up with the team mates so well with combinations.

Yes, Eto'o is faster, and maybe more mobile, but I think our team is strengthened with Ibra, he fits us better. And I think he will score at least as many goals as Eto'o. Messi will probably score 50 this season, lol. Hope he doesn't get injured.

I think Messi was shocked that Ibra passed him at the end, because Eto'o would have never done that!!!

I am really surprised with how quickly Zlatan has picked up a connection with Messi. They complement each others playing style and they almost have an Alves-Messi style connection already.

Football is past the age where one player carries the whole team by him self Maradona-Argentina 1986 style, but that is only because since the early 1990's, there have not been any players who really had the potential to become the best player ever. There have been players like Ronaldo and Zidane but as great as they were, they still coudn't be considered in the same level as Pele and Maradona. Lionel Messi is the first player I have seen to have that potential and I think just in this case, we should buy many players who not just make the team better, but complement Messi's play to make him as good as possible, hence: the best player ever. Some people think that it isn't good for their team to rely on one player because if that fails, they don't have any other options, but that is only because they don't have a Messi. Last season, Chelsea was the only to team to successfuly stop Messi and that was because they only defended. With players in the team that constantly help Messi and make it easier for him, there would be no stopping him. Other teams have done this and failed because their star player gets injured but that wont be the case with Barcelona because the players that will be helping Messi are also world class.

I bet he's not that happy about his performance...he looked like desperate for scoring...no wonder,he has tons of pressure from fans and team

Enough already.

Why are the press making such a big deal out of this guy they making as much fuss as madrid made of beckham or c.ronaldo and even kaka but he is not THAT good.
i remember when he arrived at ac milan and i was nver really impressed he was all show and fancy footwork but nor much else all he ever seemed to do at milan was dance & prance around the field but thats it really .
he's arrogant .

buj said...

LOL.. that anony is a jealous Madridista who knows nothing about football and try to pose as a INTER fan dejected about Ibra, HENCE the AC MILAN comment.

Smogen said...

I guess we all remember Ibras sad career in AC Milan?! Or wait...hmmm...I cant really remember when that was, I seem to recall when he played in Malmö, Ajax, Juventus and Inter but not AS Milan.
When was that exactly?

Mathew28 said...

He shows potential, he can do some magic I agree, but he is still way of his Ajax days..and he needs to get close to those, because with that kind of a game, he'll just trash defences in Spain.
He has some wonderfull time ahead of him, I hope, we'll all enjoy it!
