I hope to see some fireworks from Ibra tonight. It must feel good for him to be back with great players compared to the ones he has to play with in our Swedish national team ;)

Cambiasso sure is important, not as important as Zlatan though and Stankovic is not needed at all. A good attacking/ball moving midfielder would be great for the team though.. Another Cambiasso.. Stankovic just don't seem to be able to perform such things any more though :(
this is the IBRA THREAD OK dont mention noone else in this thread

Benny was being sarcastic.

Anyways. I have seen clear improvement in Ibra's dribbling the last couple of matches. He's started to remind me of the old Ibra again.

If he can dribble like the old Ibra and score and pass like the new one, he would be unstoppable.

very poor is an exaggeration, he did nothing huge (except for the goal) but he helped the build up numerous times and set up teammates a couple of times from what I remember.

camdenyards1
28 Nov 07, 00:16
I don't know hwo you can say that he was very poor. He set up so many chances that could have scored. The through ball to cordoba and that flick on header that cruz ended up fouling the defender. His goal was classy and that free kick was vicious. Whenever he touched the ball things looked up for the team.

Luka
28 Nov 07, 00:22
Sounds like somebody still can't get over this Zlatan-what-he-is-doing-here-at-Inter-anyway? thing.

Zlatan didn't play great, but he playd a lot better than recently. Mostly because his involvment in the game.

Helal, I'll agree this was far from the best we can get from either Zlatan or Cruz. However, his play did improve in the second half and he scored a goal.

Judging as tight as you do, players like RvN and Drogba would have poor matches all season long then.

yeah but they're different players ;) i expect zlatan to get the ball, dribble or pass it around. he struggled at that a bit today, but for players like drogba, crespo etc..i wont even think about it.

but i can see what your saying, 100%.

I was only stating the obvious. Obviously you expect a different game out of Ibra, but if he proves a goal, no questions asked, he definately won't be catching any criticism.

I'd like to see him step up his overall play in Europe. He has managed to put the ball in the back of the net, but like you mentioned, for a Ballon d'Or type nominee, I want to see domination.

Sounds corny. :D

Well... As I see it he is dominating. Not always the player of the match, not always making the right decision, but look at the way he touches the ball. Pure class. When most players uses 2 or even 3 touches to get control of the ball, after the first touch he have already looked around for teammates. And keep in mind that he always got at least 2 defenders close by...

I'm glad I played Ibra as top scorer in the CL for 40-1... I admit he still isn't the favourite for the titel as he isn't (wasn't) a pure striker, but this is crazy... 5 goals in 5 games...

Nirre
28 Nov 07, 06:48
He wasn't as involved in the game as I would have liked in the first half, but he still did some good. Holding the ball and setting up others, nothing brilliant but not terrible either.

Things got better in the second half. More possession and more activity over all and a very classy goal.

So, I wouldn't say he had a bad game persay. Just not a brilliant game :)

addo
28 Nov 07, 07:44
This is one of the great improvements of Ibra the last couple of years.

Ibra of 2004/2005 would slump his shoulders, yell at teammates and just walk around the pitch if he dont get off to a flying start in a game and dominates the way he can

Ibra of today works for the team, takes responsibility and still manage to create, draw opponents (making teammates unchecked for) and score goals. Even on a less "magical" day.

I mean we've all come to expect that a "good game" for ibra is magical, so that those days when he doesnt get the service needed or just has an "off day" (read he has the flu right now..again?) some people think he actually is poor. I dont believe that is true, his lowest level has improved enormously since coming to Inter.

Just my penny though.

Xoonky
28 Nov 07, 09:48
Yes, everyone expect Ibra to play much better, dominate, dribble, assist and whatnot, but not EVERY game can he do that, and personaly i was quite happy with what he did last night, it was by no way to be called very poor, that's stupid.

We are not talking about his overall play throughout the season, just his performance last night vs Fenerbahce. I'm pretty sure the number of Interisti who do not acknowledge and admire what Ibra brings to the table is a very rare and low number.

We're blessed with the best forward in the world.

I watched the match again and Ibra had a very good game. Didn't drop the ball once, had maybe two poor passes the entire match, won a lot of balls, scored a nice goal, a nice freekick and was behind damn near every attacking play we had in the first half, whcih wasn't that many. Maybe he didn't have the ball as much as I would like but he was still very good.

Check the 'Tube. I just watched the highlights a second ago.

I found it kind of odd that the defender just stood there when Ibra received the ball lol. It's like he was frozen with fear even though the ball was a mere foot away from him. Still doesn't take away the world-class strike from Ibracadabra though.

Being ranked in front of Totti, Ibra and RVN is false. However, I beg to differ. Pirlo has been amongst the most underrated players for so long. After Germany 2006, he's rightfully being appreciated. A year later, but it's okay - he's doing something right. I don't see Cannavaro on that list.

Pirlo is a beast. I'll gladly put him in a dream team if I'm preparing for a match tommorow. Honestly, he's the genius in Milan's midfield.

Last couple of years ibra has doone nothing but impress. Goals, assists and humiliating teams defenders. He has done more if not much more then at least 4 of the players infront of him on that list. Ibra is god, not even the best can stop him when he's on.

Hader
29 Nov 07, 18:07
Put Ibra at Drogba's place in the list and get rid of Robinho and get Totti higher then 10 and i would be happy with the list. I also agree with what Gaetan writes about Pirlo.

All those journalists from the UK will make sure he gets outside top10 since they still judging him from he's perfomance during WC2006. The same goes with the population in that arrogant country.

1-Kaka (only cause of CL, he win it alone, 0 in league, and next year he have no chance to win it cause he sucks in both competitions)
2-Totti
3-Drogba
4-Zlatan
5-CR7
6-Messi
7-Essien or any other defensive player.

That's a normal list.

I love the fact that he was voted as one of the 10 best players... Maybe this will shut up the swedish media (read old players who are bitter) telling us that Ibra is only a big name in Sweden and in a way in Italy...

The only problem for him to win it the next year is that Swedens only have like 3-4 players that knows what a ball is, and the next year is a European Championship year... Those prices usually goes to the player how dominates the big tournament... He may dominate, but if he doesn't play extremly above his own best-level, it will only be for 3 matches :| ...

So... What do you think UEFA thinks about this, as 4 / 10 players wasn't even on their top 30 list...

For Ibra to win BallonD'or next season, we will to get to atleast CL semifinals. CL and Euro will be the main criteria next season and not the league. Its what those uefa clowns want.

I am really hoping Ibra leads us to another Scudetto with 15-20 goals, atleast a CL semifinal spot with around 10 goals, and maybe score a few for Sweden in the Euro.

Handoyo
03 Dec 07, 09:22
That won't do either. According to the M.Adnan theory, you can't play for Inter and has to play for either Milan or Real Madrid to win the Ballon d'Or. So Ibrahimovic is fucked.

These personal accolades mean nothing to me. We had Ronaldo winning the Ballon d'Or 10 years back - look how he turned out. For that matter, Zanetti has not had a peek at any of these awards, but he has garnered absolute respect amongst the fans, both within and without the club.

The player of the year award is meaningless; the team of the year award, on the other hand, is what is important. :)

To be honest, even if Ibra leads this team to the Champions League, he's still a player who won't be seen as a fitting Ballon d'or winner.

I'd agree with you a year ago or maybe two, but he has changed... His skills are even better, but most of all his temper is much calmer... But I see what you mean... To get the people who doesn't watch him every game to understand that is hard... On the other hand, in sweden, alot of people used to disliked him (lovely, a small country as Sweden get a world class player, and alot of people don't like it because... ...he is world class) but I start to feel the opinion change... Maybe this season, he can turn the refs and rest of the world...

I disagree. Many people around the world, including England, have come to terms that Zlatan is the best support striker in the world. In order for him to back this up though, they would like to see him do it against some of the world's top clubs - and with all due respect to Ibra who is my favorite player in the world, he hasn't done it. Not with Inter in the Champions League nor with Sweden.

He will have more opportunities. So it is up to him to rise up and become a contender for a future Ballon d'Or or crumble in typical Inter fashion.

Who gives a damn fark about the Golden Balls or the Farce World Player of the Year awards or the others' opinion on him anyway. I just finished my Ethics class so let me give you a lecture. :D

Aristotle considered self-interest to be the lowest form of human nature. One form of self-interest is doing something in order to get the others' attention; you are not doing it because it's the right thing to do.

So, let Ibrahimovic do well because achieving success with Inter is the thing to do, not to get the attention of some popcorn fans who just takes a look at the CL goal scorers chart and solely base their vote for the Ballon d'Or on that list, just like what happened this year.

Well, I have no doubt that Ibra is rated highly due to his inherent skill, and how he's using it to drive Inter forward. However, it is the public perception of his temperament that is his stumbling block. Nevertheless, if his performances become too tantalizing to ignore, the Ballon d'Or will eventually be awarded to Ibrahimovic.

For some reason, I just felt Zlatan is now better with Inter than I have ever seen him before with any other team. Just wanted to make sure this is the case, and not just my black/blue shades or anti JuBe outlook talking here...

(Just did a quick manual count, across all comps., might not be 100% accurate)

Malmo - 40 Apps, 16 Goals - Avg 0.40 Goals/Game
Ajax - 99 Apps, 43 Goals - Avg 0.43 Goals/Game
Jube - 91 Apps, 26 Goals - Avg 0.29 Goals/Game
Inter - 56 Apps, 27 Goals - Avg 0.48 Goals/Game

This to me really confirms what I've been feeling. Numbers aside, I watched some youtube vids as well, and there's definetly major improvement in his performance. After he joined Inter, he gradually became better and better. This is not even taking into consideration assists or general playmaking/pace setting which he is excelling at.

While some may argue that it's just the player growing more experienced, I'd like to think it has a lot to do with the Inter mentality, Mancio's guidance, and the general attitude and support of the team. You can even see in every game he is smiling more and more, and almost never getting agitated as he used to. He still gets cards sometimes ;) but he used to get them for being stupidly angry, and now he gets them for being funnily stupid!

I'd like to see him with us past 100 games, because that'll seal the deal for me that he is a true, loyal, and forever Inter player. If he keeps this consistency for another year, he'll earn his place in Inter history faster than most strikers we ever had. Grande Ibra.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again; I think Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the key transfer for this Inter. It's impossible to say what would've happened if he went to BBilan or any other club, but I really feel this. He is so immensely important for Inter now. We thought Matrix was, but Samuel has stepped in reducing the longing for Matrix (Matrix is still important though). Ibra has no real replacement in the squad, perhaps not even in the world of football. He was worth every penny and is perhaps the most important transfer made by Inter during Mancini.

I think Zlatan grew on having a child and being mentored by Capello. He was very cocky earlier.

Lenny_and_Carl
07 Dec 07, 13:22
Having Mancini as a coach has definately helped Ibra. Capello was useful, as has been mentioned, because he taught Ibra some discipline and Mancini has set him free on the pitch. While Capello grew frustrated with Ibra's trickery (when it didnt pay off), Mancini has been more patient with him. He's given him more responsibility and Ibra has responded brilliantly. He's gone from an arrogant dickhead to just arrogant (c'mon, that celebration after the Fener goal was arrogance defined). Now its the good kind.

Completely agree with you, but I actually think we should be thankful that he got Capello at juBe. Capello taught him what was needed, and kept him underperforming at the same time :D on a serious note, Ibra was lucky to get Capello and then Mancini. Now he is better than ever and he should be thankful to these two for getting where he is.

14 Dec 07, 23:56
Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the special guest in the fourteenth episode of Sky Italia's 'Inter 100 e lode', the series dedicated to Inter's centenary season. Here's what the Swedish forward had to say:

Ibra, which adjectives would you use to describe your exceptional form?
"I'm doing very well, but the whole team is also doing very well. We have to continue on this path. We are very confident but the championship is still long and we have to stay focused."

Do you feel you are in top form, or can you improve more?
"I feel in great form but I can do better because I still want to improve a lot. I am working towards this, and to improve more you have to work every day, play a lot, and learn from your team-mates, both on and off the pitch."

Despite your past at Juventus, you have become the idol of the Inter fans.
"I think I did well in my first year in Italy, and I won the Scudetto. In my second year I did well until Christmas, but I don't know how to explain what happened after, when I didn't play like I can. The following year I joined Inter and started playing well immediately and improved. I train well every day and I feel good during matches. I have improved but this wouldn't be possible without my team-mates. They help me every day in training and in matches, both on and off the pitch."

Is this a magic year for you?
"I'm doing better year after year. I have always done a bit better in every new championship. This year is the best of my career."

Does Roberto Mancini also deserve some of the credit?
"I have a good relationship with him. We talk when we need to. I'm a player and he's the coach. I have a normal relationship with him, and nothing more than that."

You have been compared to Marco Van Basten. What do you think about this?
"We can't make these comparisons. Each player has his own qualities and his own style. And I don't think anyone can be compared to Van Basten."

Maicon has made many assists for your goals. What is your relationship with him like?
"I think Maicon is the strongest full-back in Italy and one of the strongest in Europe. He joined Inter and did very well in his first year. He's doing even better this year and he's improving even more. He also plays for the Brazilian national team, and if you play for them it doesn't just mean you're good, it means you're very good. I get on well with him and we understand each other perfectly. He attacks a lot and he's very important for our game."

Your understanding in attack with Julio Cruz is perfect. Do you agree?
"I have played with Cruz a lot this year, and last year I played a lot with Crespo. Hernan scored a lot last year like Cruz has done in the first part of this season. This is my second season with the Nerazzurri and with these team-mates. The more time that passes, the better we get to know one another, both on and off the pitch. So everything is automatic. I get on well with Cruz on and off the pitch, but the same goes for all the others. And in Eindhoven we saw how good Suazo was. I thought he was the best on the pitch. He's improving too. He just has to learn our tactics and our game. If he does this he can become one of the most important players in our team."

Did you support Inter when you were a young boy?
"Yes. There were three or four of us, all friends, and we all supported a team from one of the most important European countries. My team in Italy was Inter, and the others supported Milan and Juventus. In England I liked Arsenal, while my friends preferred Manchester United and Liverpool. When you're a kid you like lots of teams, and Inter was one of these."

You are disqualified for the Cagliari trip, so we will see you back on the pitch in the derby...
"Every match is important, but the derby is even more important because there are so many emotions. We play in the same city, and the stadium will be full. It's an exciting and important match. This is my second year at Inter and my third derby. It's really nice to play in the derbies."

You have already scored two derby goals.
"But there's always the next match. The old ones are in the past."

Ronaldo won't play in this derby...
"I liked Ronaldo a lot because he was the most complete player of all. He hasn't been lucky lately because he has had a few injuries. But he'll be back when he's fit."

Will it be a clash between you and Kaka?
"It's Inter against Milan. Eleven against eleven, not one against one."

Is there anything you envy about Kaka?
"No. I think he's a fantastic player. He deserved to win the Ballon d'Or and I'm happy for him."

Will you win it next year?
"No. This isn't something I'm thinking about. I want to win every trophy with Inter. The individual awards come by themselves."

Besides the shot ibra has better dribbling, speed, technique, strength, and above all spice haha. Inter are so lucky to have him play along 10 other world class and level players.

Luka

Totti is beloved by Roma supporters, and I think sometimes they overate him. (you can say the same about us, but still :P ).

Ibra in my opinion is better, because despite of the simirar qualities between those 2, he has also heights and strength, and that combined with his incredible technique makes him so uniqe.

I don't completly agree.

If you put close manmark for any technichal player he will see it harder to play with the ball.

It's all about drawing attention to other players, and with it you have to lose marking for a player like that. Valencia was a big floop, and Juve we played with 4-4-2 a formation that cuts Zlatan from midfield thus making a deffenders easier to mark him.

Sure, but it would be more fun if an Inter player won the prizes than a Milan player, and at the moment Zlatan is one of the best... Anyway, that Adriano didn't win a few years ago proved that an Inter player can't win these prizes and Ibra knows it...

The only weakness he has was pointed out by our "Sinisa" last month, that Ibra tends to dissapear in matches for like 15-20 mins then all of a sudden comes into the scene and starts to do his magic. Its like he just wasn't motivated for the game or he thought that things would just be as easy and simple.

Take a look at the Fenerbahce game at the Meazza, he was nowhere to be seen in the first 20 minutes, just like "Raul" :D . Then he suddenly starts to make good plays, movements, touches, passes as if he decided to play.

It is hard to be in top condition all the time, if he can recover during the match... it will be a good enough. Plus, he is having a blast season so far.. letz hope it continues

I understand this is your first post and you are entitled to your opinion but to call Zlatan clumsy is nothing short of ridiculous. You may want to go back through this thread to see some of his agility, trickery and skill.

I am not sure if you are basing your comments on Zlatan's efforts during the Derby, in which case there were numerous occasions that he unsucessfully attempted to dribble opponents but it would be unfair to base your comments on one match.

By the way, welcome to the Forum and enjoy posting!

Lastly, your English is fine

29 Dec 07, 04:51
Okej, i agree that Zlatan has done much good things in inter. But if you look at youtube vidoes, you can se that he is dribbeling past one player maybe, but its not often two or more players. The thing i mean that he is clummsy is that he drops the boll to the other team to often. Look at the youtube's clip and you understand what I mean. He have done many goals this season yes, but many are on penaltys.
We have also the Swedish nationalteam, he have not done a goal in a several of years, is that acceptable when he is doing so well in Inter at the movement? I think that Zlatan has to prove a little bit more in the Swedish team, but also in the Champions League (he is doing well, but he have to keep it up) to be the best player in the world. The people in, for exemple England doesnt know how Zlatan is, but they know who Kaká is.

If you look in this clip for exempele, its pretty easy goals he does (not every goal), and he has the luck on his side.

I have not had the opportunity to watch Sweden matches so I can only guess at the possible reasons Zlatan has done less well for the Sweden than Inter. It may well be the case when he plays for Sweden, he does not get the service that he gets at Inter or that the Swedish National team coach plays Zlatan in a different role to the way Mancini fields him at Inter.

Your comment about football supporters in England being more familiar with Kaka than Zlatan may be down to the fact that Liverpool have played Milan in two of the last three finals so they have been exposed to Kaka and Milan.

As you know, Inter and Liverpool will be meeting in the Champions League which will provide Inter and Zlatan an opportunity to leave a mark on Liverpool and English football by knocking the Reds out of the Champions League.

Okej, i agree that Zlatan has done much good things in inter. But if you look at youtube vidoes, you can se that he is dribbeling past one player maybe, but its not often two or more players. The thing i mean that he is clummsy is that he drops the boll to the other team to often. Look at the youtube's clip and you understand what I mean. He have done many goals this season yes, but many are on penaltys.
We have also the Swedish nationalteam, he have not done a goal in a several of years, is that acceptable when he is doing so well in Inter at the movement?

None of the goals were easy. And what are you expecting him to be successful in every dribbling move?! Ronaldo isn't. Ronaldinho isn't. He scored 29 goals for us. About 6 or so have been penalties so where are you coming with this?! Kaka has more penalty goals than that in his last 29 goals scored.

I believe that the second paragraph doesn't require a response because it's obvious. And btw, Zlatan is known in England but he's viewed as being a terribly over-rated player since none of them care to watch football outside of there country.

The biggest strength of Zlatan is the ability to play target outside the penalty box, which I only know 3 players that are capable of doing this. Zlatan, Amauri and Drogba. He gives us option to play longballs, and this advantage will shine when Materazzi and Deki are 100% fit. The other advantage of him is being capable of playmaking at the top end of our line, and draggin 2~3 defenders and opening a chance to our midfielders. None of this will show on YouTube videos, but this is what made us win in the derby and become a winter champion.

If English wants to decide who is better by checking youtube clips and highlights, let them do so with all their arrogance. No one is going to make a better video than Quagliarella in Italy, but we know instead of miracle shots every 5 games, every consistant game is what brings us the cup.

About Ibra's games with the Swedish national team.. Honestly.. Sweden plays a totally different game. The swedish midfielders and fullbacks couldnt pass the ball if their lives depended on it. Im not bashing the Swedish national team cause they are good. But they are good cause of organisation and a collective workrate. They dont have any technically gifted players. And they do not have one single player besides Ibra that plays for a "big" team. Ljungberg is finished.. Henrik Larsson has retired from the national side. Kallstrom plays for Lyon, he is the only player besides Ibra that regurarly play in the CL for example. But he seldom plays in the Swedish starting lineup.

Put Kaka/Drogba/C.Ronaldo in the Swedish National team and he'd struggle to do anything decent with the poor service..

Ibra is simply too individually good for the Swedish National side until they change coaches and the new one builds the game around Ibra.

Sven Göran Eriksson in the Swedish national team is my dream. He'll probably never be our manager though. Just like Nils Liedholm never was, even though he wanted to be. Stupid FA.

Elmander(from Toulouse) and Zlatan is a very good attacking pair though, Elmander was in this seasons Ligue 1 dreamteam togheter with Benzema in attack. Behind those two there are nothing, Ljungberg is done and Källström is never given a real chance..

Swedish newspaper Expressen has had an exclusive interview with Zlatan, and I'm gonna give some quotes:

_______________________

"This Scudetto would feel more important than last season, since the newspapers wrote last season about the penalties for the other teams. It feels like winning it this year is more valuable. It will be an extra push to win it this year."

"I have faith in the club and the President. I signed a contract until 2012, because I like it here. The family also likes Milano very much."

"I can definitely see myself finish my career at Inter. Everyone supports me, everyone is behind me. The club has potential and is one of the biggest in the world. I want to spend my time here, and fullfill my dreams with this club."
