Yuh have to look back at where barca was then, not the barca of last yr or this year, compare his record to eto the previous seasons and messi, though the latter is probably an unfair comparison.  Going from eto to zlatan was an experiement that did not work, the goal ratio you show would be good anywhere else but not at barca that season...

It wasn't an experiment at all.  Pep didn't like Eto'o and wanted to be rid of him.  Inter saw an opportunity to manage salaries by sending Ibra in the other direction.  The only reason Ibra actually cost Barca some change was because Ibra had a recently signed extension and therefore that meant his value was higher than Eto who's contract was an expiring one.  Zlatan played to his skill set within the set up there.  He did not spend enough time there to integrate into the Tiki Taka system yet still was able to produce a goal every other game on average.  To say that he fart dong heself is ah setta shit talk because outside of Eto, and Messi who else was prolific to that tune at Barca in the last 2 decades?  Villa? No. Henry? No. Eiğur Guğjohnsen? No. Giuly? No.  Larsson? No. Pedro, Lexi? No. 


I sure yuh get the picture, right?

ha ha, well, yuh entitled to your opinion...yuh right about one thing, eto departure wasn't an experiment though I stated it as such....Henry IMO did much better and fit right in from the jump, it's not only about goal/match ratio but other aspects of the game of which you are aware...but Henry is a different footballer and you could argue the transition from Arsenal to Barca made that easier.

I will say this though, based on the ltd footage I have seen, Zlatan today is not the same player that Barca bought, that said, I def would not have bought him back then, his price tag then kinda reminds me of Bale today at RM....

Kinda hard to argue against getting a striker who had won league titles in every league he played in as part of the act to exile ah striker of Eto caliber.  Despite the obvious maturity in his game today Zlatan was a top 10 - 15 (depending on opinion) club striker at that point.  Henry was always going to be an easier fit given the style of play he came from at Arsenal.  I am sure if you added CR, Hazard, Mata, etc. despite their obvious skills it would also take them some time to integrate into that system given that they always played in much more straight forward setups.  The price tag looked inflated but in reality it made sense.  I do understand why many would not and did not want him at that price though.

ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC FUMING AFTER BEING NAMED SECOND-BEST SWEDISH ATHLETE EVER
DECEMBER 23RD, 2014 BY THOMAS HAUTMANN

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is upset. Very upset.

The PSG star finished second to tennis legend Bjorn Borg on Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter‘s list of the country’s 150 greatest athletes of all time, and when congratulated by the paper, Zlatan gave this curt response:

"Thank you, but to finish second is like finishing last."

Okay, Ricky Bobby.

Asked where he thinks he should’ve landed on the list, Zlatan quipped: “I would have been No. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, with due respect to the others.”

To be honest, we kind of expected him to say that. Classic Zlatan!

Ibrahimovic comes second in poll of best sporting Swedes, blasts award
Zlatan Ibahimovic has reacted bitterly to being placed second in the rankings of Sweden's all-time sports people by a national newspaper, suggesting that he was clearly the best.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker has won the Guldbollen, an annual award given to the best Swedish footballer of each year, a record nine times and racked up over a century of caps for the national side.
However, after being declared as runner-up behind five-times Wimbledon winner Bjorn Borg by the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter in a list of the top 150 Swedes, he responded in typically candid fashion.
"Thank you (for the congratulations), but to finish second is like finishing last," Ibrahimovic said in an interview with the publishers of the rankings.
"On that list I would have been number 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, with due respect to the others."
Despite those comments, the 33-year-old still reserved praise for Tennis star Borg.
"He is a cool person and a living legend," he added.

ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC: MOOSE HUNTER
DECEMBER 30TH, 2014


There are many titles that can be given to Sweden and Paris Saint-Germain star Zlatan Ibrahimovic — and moose hunter is just the latest.

Swedish newspaper Expressen reported that the charismatic striker spent some of the winter holiday hunting in his home country. The paper reported that Zlatan felled a 500 kg (1,100 lbs) moose with a single shot to the heart.

Unsurprisingly, animal rights activists in Sweden are less than amused by Ibrahimovic’s hunting prowess and criticized him for supporting hunting as a sport.

Hunting is legal in Sweden and Ibrahimovic is a known fan. He’s had a license since 2010 and even starred in a Volvo ad featuring him lining up a rifle at a moose as well as other wintery, Nordic activities.
And in case you’re wondering, his skills at animal capture don’t end on land. This holiday, he’s breaking personal records in fishing too.

No we doh want him.....send him to Celsea or Assnal or even that other manchester team.

I guess he will want the captaincy from Rooney.

This is going to be a tumultuous 3 years with Jose....so far he hasn't changed or shown any propensity to do so. He will probably recycle a bunch of pre-retirees.

Manchester Utd's Zlatan Ibrahimovic ranks No. 2 on UK's rich list
By PA Sport


Lewis Hamilton is still the richest sportsman in the UK but Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a close second after he gatecrashed the top 10 of the new Sunday Times Rich List.

Mercedes Formula One driver Hamilton, who is bidding to win his fourth World Championship this year, has a £131 million fortune and has seen his wealth increase by £25m in the past 12 months.

Ibrahimovic, United's 35-year-old Swedish striker, leapfrogged teammate Wayne Rooney to become the richest footballer on the list after he joined the English side in July last year.

The imposing forward has a wealth of £110m after more than a decade playing for Europe's elite clubs including Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan, Barcelona, Juventus and Inter Milan and a lucrative long-term endorsement deal with Nike.

Formula One's Jenson Button and golfer Rory McIlroy make up the top five with wealth of £86m and £82m respectively.

McIlroy's fortune rose by £26m in the past 12 months, the biggest rise on the list, while Button's personal fortune grew by £9m even though he handed over his McLaren seat at the end of last season.

Football is the best-represented sport in the top 10, with five of the wealthiest sports people either players or managers.

Rooney (£93m, up £11m) is third, while Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is in seventh place (£61m) and Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola equal ninth (£50m).

Wales and Real Madrid striker Gareth Bale has seen his wealth rise by £20m in the last year to a total of £54m, to place him eighth in the top 10.

Sir Andy Murray is now worth £77m, making him the sixth-richest sportsman. The world No. 1 in men's tennis earned nearly £13m on court and plenty more off it to carry him to the total, the same number as that borne by his management company after he won his first Wimbledon 77 years after the last Briton to do so, Fred Perry.

Los Angeles Lakers basketball player Luol Deng completes the top 10 in joint ninth place with Guardiola (£50m).

Deng is Sudanese-British and came to London aged eight after fleeing civil war in his home country. He moved to the United States as a teenager and has played for the Chicago Bulls, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Miami Heat before switching to the Lakers.

None of the top 10 richest sports stars saw their wealth decline this year, with the cumulative rise standing at £129m.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
