I think most of us have thanked him for his contribution, just before he left us for Barcelona. That's it, after that a new chapter has begun for him and for us.

And that gives you the right to joke about him????
Suddenly, just because he leaves Inter you forget all of his contribution???
Well... that makes a realy nice picture from what you are as an Interist and soccer fan.
I wonder if you have the same attitude to all thouse great persons and players who pass true Inter history and now are in some other place....

I do not think Moratti or Mou is really against him to go back here...
But I am not sure he will go back here in his will.. after his antics against us..
And if he goes back, now he has to bow to Sneijder, Milito and Eto'o ...

I know that we can't have him and busquets together :P

He wanted to win CL and move from here.
He joined to the greatest side of football with full of Champions of UCL and EC08.
and the new team loose with him and his old team maybe will win everything without him.

He must realize that he is too boastful. and this is a good example for him to decrease his ego. his mentality is too destroying.

Agent: Ibra to Juve is 'normal'
Sunday 9 May, 2010

Talk of Zlatan Ibrahimovic returning to Juventus is “normal,” according to his agent Mino Raiola.

Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport has for the last two days used Ibra’s potential comeback as its front page story.

“It is only normal that the new President of Juventus will think of a top signing to relaunch the club,” said Raiola.

“Zlatan is one of the best players in the world. In my view, nothing is impossible in life. In fact, I love to transform the impossible into reality.

“I have managed that a few times already in the past.”

Ibra would not be very welcome at Juve after joining rivals Inter in the midst of the 2006 Calciopoli scandal.

A return to Serie A is on the cards after he failed to settle in during his first season at Barcelona.

“Do you think my client could be put off by the insults from the fans? You should know that for Zlatan, fear simply does not exist.”

He can't play in this Inter. His game is the best when team is built-ed around him. He won't be good like one of players in system. He must be key, that's why he failed in Barcelona. He's Barca's Quaresma.

For 40 milions and guy who scored 30+ last season in Spain he should contribute more. And in games against Vilareal and Sevila he was benched for Bojan. In CL semi's he was substituted for Bojan even Barca was desperate to score a goal.

Guardiola doesn't trust in him and that0s a fact, just a 20+ number doesn't mean anything.

Suneet
09 May 10, 11:44
He's never been a guy who scores tonnes of goals. Never ever. He's not an Eto'o type of a player but its ok saying he needs to score more than Eto'o because he is more expensive means everything.

By that regard, does Eto'o need to score some own goals because we basically got him for less than free?

He had a good run at the beginning of the season, but has miserably failed since. Furthermore, i can count in one hand's fingers the times he scored good goals that many other strikers could not, he mostly put in goals because he was assisted by Xavi/Messi and co. Put Suazo there, and he would reach the 30 goals this season.

Put Suazo there, and he would reach the 30 goals this season.

I wouldn't say he had a good start. He was scoring goals but he looked awkward as all fuck, he NEVER was able to adapt to Barca & Spain. Eto'o on the other hand has not scored as many goals but he's played with more conviction and purpose starting with the Super Coppa vs Lazio. He's found his role and slotted in well to Mourinho's plans.

And regarding Xavi & Messi's assissts...it was the same with Eto'o last year.

FCBarca
09 May 10, 17:59
Conviction & purpose comparison of the two?...Come on, that's a pretty far fetched comparison that none of us can really weigh in on honestly.

As players and attributes/styles go, Eto'O was always going to have a better transformation than Ibra, regardless of what league or side he played for, IMHO...Samu is a worker and blessed with terrific pace and nose for goal.

As technique and overall talent, I think Ibra is far more gifted than the indomitable lion...But settling into a Barca side that plays a very particular brand of football is no easy task, regardless of the player...It took more than a season for Henry to adjust and I suspect that Ibra will be a far more integrated player at Barca in year two...And considering how well his first season has gone at Barca, despite this integration problem, I think it bodes quite well for the future.

Raul Duke
09 May 10, 18:57
Maybe my choice of words were not right. What I meant to say is Eto'o seems to know what he's doing on the pitch while Ibra seems to be making shit up as he goes.

Barcelona took a gamble with Ibrahimovic and now they have to deal with the consequences. They knew very well what his qualities were prior to buying him so it's only their fault for him not being as prolific as they hoped.

I agree that 20+ goals is not bad at all for any player, and like FCBarca said, let's wait until next season to make a judgment on him. For all we know ibrahimovic may be walking in Henry's footsteps and truly take off next year, or he may follow Quaresma's path and fail to meet the true expectations.

As for wanting him back, I personally would not take him back. I admired him for as a footballer and knew while he was with us the story would have to end sometime. With his departure we recovered WELL BEYOND initial expectations, but that chapter has closed. Thank you for all he did for us, but he took his road and we took ours.

FCBarca
09 May 10, 22:03
True, all except the comparisons to Quaresma...He was a flop of major proportions at Barca whereas Ibra has produced, no comparison really

Well I was referring to the Quaresma adventure at Inter...last year when he flopped many people (including myself) reasoned he didn't meet expectations because he did not have a proper preseason and his second season would be better. Well, even with a full preseason, he still has not met expectations and now people are questioning his value, etc...

About Ibrahimovic I agree with Hasan, the fact that he was benched at pretty crucial times in the season in favor of Bojan showed that the management doesn't yet have full faith in his ability. It could be a cause for concern, and definitely raise questions about his expectations. But I think we should all wait until the second season before making conclusions.

It's that part about 'faith in his ability' that I think as a guess is wide of the mark...Instead, as I have described before, it is more about integration...yet.

La Masia products like Bojan have lived & breathed Barca's style of play since they were 10 years old...Expecting Ibra to have a leg up on that style over Masia youth players has less to do about faith & abilities than it does about unrealistic expectations

I said this after the deal was done, wait until year two to see how well the experiment turns out...So far, it's been gravy considering he isn't even nearly integrated yet

I gotta say that the true purpose of buying Ibra this season is exactly contradictory to your point of argument. He was brought in to be the X factor...The "battering ram" factor to be exact. I don't think Pep wants to integrate Ibra the way Eto'o gelled with the team.

Otherwise, why would they made the switch? I know that there are some off-the-pitch problems with Eto'o but I think that's not the dominant reason of the barter.

Maybe Pep is going for Bojan instead of Ibra for the last few matches because in La Liga, playing with a fast pacy striker (Bojan = Eto'o) and without that battering ram, worked last season with no problem and to insure the La Liga this season, Pep is going with the old and trusted formula.

But next season, I'm pretty sure Pep will use Ibra as a first-teamer again.

FCBarca
10 May 10, 01:11
Yeah, I think the x-factor bit was precisely the reason...The 'de-bunker' player against the parked bus that can prove frustrating for Barca...Except, having not understood his teammates enough or the movement of Barca, even off the ball, I think it will still take him some time.

As for Bojan, he has been in form and like in any sport, you go with the hot hand

But, definitely, I see Ibra being a starter for next season...If the experiment continues to be erratic then I can see them parting ways but I suspect they both want it to work, badly, and will find the balance needed

Well, respesct is not only earned with the achievements of a player in a club, i agree with you on that.
The respect of a player is not only gained with achivements but also with the attitidue that the same player has towards the club.
Ibra never said anything bad about Inter, in fact he has expressed his gratitude to the club many times since leaving.
For me he deserves my total respect as one of Inter greatest.

As i know the only "unfortune"(for a lot of people) gesture, was the kiss of Barça badge.
Well i dont see the wrong on that, it looks like Ibra was a legend of Inter or that Inter was his favourite/dream club.
People will always have preferences...

I´m glad to see that the most part of ForzaInter users agrees with me. The panel asks "How should Ibra be remembered?"

The pool respond 46.90% - "As an Inter great"



but you can go ahead love him and love soccer


FOOTBALL my friend,not soccer

Well, now you are being rude and immature..
I dont love mens just womens.
I only came here to express my opinion about the subject "ibra" and to say what I consider more correct for a player who gave very much to Inter, that never disregarded the club and that obviously has his preferences.

When I wrote the word soccer i had the notion that i would be going to receive comments with some sensitivity about this issue and i only did it for a question of comfort and speed, thinking that most of the users would not even be going to notice, only you.
I think that the problem of many persons here, is to take this issues too much serious, becoming even sometimes a personal subject.

ibra the man is infuriating in his arrogance and lack of respect to us, his former fans. ibra the player was a phenomenon [he did more for us than fat ronnie] and more of an emperor than adri...he played a major part in bringing us 3 serie A titles, that is all i care about. ok he should have done better for us in europe, but it would have been better if we had more attacking players such as sneijder back then, then he might have scored more?
i agree that the barca-badge-kissing was in very bad taste, but then we should always remember that this guy has always been a mercenary...anyone that can leave juve in their hour of need was never a true fan, especially when he decided to join a key rival like inter. vieira was fine as we all know that he will always be an arsenal man through and through...i just wish he had done better for us, (just like davids) he remains one of the greatest players in his position ever, if only they had come to us when they were younger...
at the end of the day he is not any worse than vieri or ronaldo - they should both have showed much greater loyalty to the colours than they did...i'm am just sad that all these great players have to leave in such bad circumstances...i just hope that the likes of milito, eto'o and pandev don't do the same...

He looks ok with how things have gone in terms of his minutes the last couple of matches, I must say...He can easily be seen in a good mood in the prematch warmups and the celebratory gatherings when a goal is scored as well as the final whistle.

He has the support of the club, his teammates and fans so I expect he'll be motivated to show he can be a vital cog in every match with a preseason to continue to adapt.

Ok. I said wath i had to say about Ibra and i state my opinion about what should be the behavior of a fan to a player that gave is best to the club and never disrespected the same club (players like Cordoba and Materazi thanked him to)

firstly...wow u got all of that from me calling ibra a homo, damn i must have hit a sensitive spot or something.

secondly...ur attempt at an ibra-esque rebuttle is an epic fail dude, aint nothin illogical about whats been going on around there. the proof really is in the pudding. do we really need to get the papps involved again???

People here are having a few cracks and jokes about all the photos, its really something that should be precieved as just a joke, if you dont think its funny, offends you or you dont like it simply dont read the joke.

We would have fallen to Chelsea if we had Ibra and not Eto'o, full stop.
Ibra is a much better technical footballer, but Eto'o is a work-horse who put in heroic performances to help us win those matches to the final, and also has the winners destiny (you see, there are people like Ranier who the destiny tells to always miss out).
Meanwhile, with Ibra we would have a "i-am-the-best-and-the-team-should-play-for-me-while-i-never-run" kind of player who would have fucked up not only our team-play, but also our mentality, as there would also be guys like Maicon, Milito and Sneijder who would get mad of his thinking he is the king and not running, resulting in other players giving less efforts too. All that would result in the same thing we got accustomed, knocked-out in the 1/8 of the finals.

To all you deluded fools who actually believe that Ibrahimovic would have taken us this far..you people otta be ashamed of yourselves. You people act as if Samu's sacrifices are nothing. This guy is a center forward who fit his ass into LB for the better part of the Barca game and not once complained. This guy ran his ass off in the San Siro vs. Barca and his crosses initiated two goals. Against Chelsea he fucking scored!!!! That act alone means that he > Ibrahimovic forever... Right now the team is united and play as a team, where everytime we step on a pitch you see 11 players playing for 11 players, which also play for a purpose. Last season we saw 10 players playing for 1 player who didn't give a shit about them, yelled at them constantly, and was more than willing to walk out on them and take all the praise for the team's success.

Eto'o not once has complained at the fact he spends more time running than Milan and from his reactions, i.e. not sulking and shit, he doesn't show any signs that he cares. Ibra would never do that for anyone but himself. We are at the final because of the equal efforts of 11 men working their asses off on a football field over the last 6 games. With Ibrahimovic, who is by far the laziest piece of shit in the entire footballing world alongside Berbatov (the epic nose ran less than Valdez and Julio Cesar in the second leg and a little more than them in the first), we would have never been able to play such a tactic and would have never been able to overcome Chelsea. This is also not even counting the fact that Ibrahimovic is a big game choker! I didn't matter who the hell is assisting him! He had Xavi, the world's best and he still choked against us. Sneijder is amazing sure, but how many of our goals against Barca came from a defense splitting pass of his? They came as a result of hustle, and hard defensive pressure which was quickly converted into a counter attack. I'm sorry but with Ibra, that would never happen because Ibra doesn't run and as soon as he got the ball he would hold it and kill our play, right there and then.

It's just disrespectful, how you people just act as if Eto'o is just another player inorder to make Ibra look as if he is some kind of footballing god or something is disgusting! Samu has made the biggest sacrifice I've seen of any player in a long time for this team by not doing this for not only one game for but almost an entire season you people have to respect that, cuz despite the fact he's not scoring, the other important intangibles he's added, although not statistically recognized are highly valuable to this team.

Are you sure you watch every Barca game? I guarantee you any non-Barca fan who watches La Liga every weekend will tell you Messi is a diver.

I paid close attention to him vs. both Arsenal AND Inter and he was diving in both games. Taking nothing away from his ability, but bro he's a diver lol

And that dive in the gif is worthy of an Oscar.

Be reasonable.

We have plenty of divers on our team. Milito dives frequently, Motta play acts alot, as do Lucio and Maicon. I don't even need to mention Balotelli do I?

Barca too has its divers, Busquets and Alves in particular. Xavi had a hilarious dive against Espanyol and Messi dived in that gif but got to his feet instantly as there was no contact. Call Xavi a sore loser all we want but it is true that he isn't known as a notorious diver. Messi too has a generally high level of sportsmanship. There will always be the occasional dive from players of high sportsmanship. Even Zanetti has gone to ground too easily in recent years, especially last season.

As far as the homophobia thing goes.. Yes that Zlatan/Pique pic is hilarious and we can all laugh at the innopportune moment of that photo. As FCBarca said, there are plenty of photos taken from matches, training sessions or just general motion which will look funny.

Remember, photos are just how the scene is in one split second moment in time. I bet if we had a video of that Zlatan/Pique handshake, it would be a rather normal handshake + shoulder bump or something.

We don't need to be rude to homosexuality however. Ironically, I actually posted in the thread about homosexuality in the social commentary/politics thread the other day. Yea it's really funny to make jokes about Zlatan and Pique being lovers and whatnot, hell I'd find that photo hilarious if it was 2 of OUR players.
But we don't have to be so disrespectful.

That "Cadabra" meant nothing when the team actually needed it, in Europe... And what is his "Cadabra" anyways? We've not had it all season yet we've won Coppa Italia (never did it with "Cadabra"), Got 1 foot on Serie A (always did with "Cadabra" and we are in the final of Champions League (never passed 1st KO round with "Cadabra"). If this season tells you anything about Ibra it has to be: a) He doesn't play for the team. b) He thrives when he's the star. c) When he's not the star he's average. d) Team play triumphs over team-play-for-one-man.


You also talk about Samu's work rate combined with Milito's finishing and Ibra's "Cadabra"... how do you suppose we do that? All three men are CFs, Samu's humble enough to play out of position to ensure the team wins, I'm not so sure Ibra or his "Cadabra" would be willing to do the same, and if Milito did it we would be wasting the one thing he has over most center forwards in this world, clinical finishing... There's no chance that would work as we would be far too unbalanced. Also now take into account that Milito has so many goals because Eto'o is willing to run outward and bring defenders out with him so he can free up the box. Ibra or his "Cadabra" wouldn't do that for anyone but instead would park himself in the box and stay there.

Now you also have to take in the fact that Sneijder joined us to fill the creativity gap left by Ibra and his "Cadabra". Had Ibra stayed, Sneijder would have probably never come, therefore seeing us resort to playing the exact same way we did last time, except instead of Cruz we would have had Milito.

The fact is with Ibra and his "Cadabra" we were European Pretenders, in fact the second biggest behind Madrid, with Eto'o and his work rate we have are European Contenders and possibly European Champions. That's all that should be acknowledge right now and true Interista are doing this instead of think about how things would have been with a guy who told you all to suck his dick.

Like a boxer going down when he anticipates a punch to the nose. Fact of the matter is, Messi went down when there was no contact. And then the manner in which he fell. It's not like he jumped to avoid the tackle. He 'dove'. And what if the ref had penalized Cambiasso for that 'shadow' tackle? In any case, even if there had been contact, it would have still been misleading because the fall was initiated well before.

Not that I'm excusing Milito, Eto'o and Maicon, but I can at least see why would attempt a dive. Messi and co. don't need to resort to such tactics to win a game.

Also now take into account that Milito has so many goals because Eto'o is willing to run outward and bring defenders out with him so he can free up the box. Ibra or his "Cadabra" wouldn't do that for anyone but instead would park himself in the box and stay there.

Now you also have to take in the fact that Sneijder joined us to fill the creativity gap left by Ibra and his "Cadabra". Had Ibra stayed, Sneijder would have probably never come, therefore seeing us resort to playing the exact same way we did last time, except instead of Cruz we would have had Milito.

The fact is with Ibra and his "Cadabra" we were European Pretenders, in fact the second biggest behind Madrid, with Eto'o and his work rate we have are European Contenders and possibly European Champions. That's all that should be acknowledge right now and true Interista are doing this instead of think about how things would have been with a guy who told you all to suck his dick.

He's got some mental disorder, I can't remember the scientific name for it, it's too long to remember. But any individual with this disorder seems to think that his feet (heels in particular) are positioned higher than the head. This is why he keeps trying to forward-flip and kick the ball rather than simply heading it in. Oh, and I just remembered the really long name for it....Zlatan Ibrahimovic Disorder (ZID)

While they will provide Barcelona with a myriad of options, they will also potentially cut on Ibrahimovic's playing time...knowing Ibra's character, he won't be especially happy about that and could possibly create some unnecessary tension...personally I believe if Barcelona indeed get Villa he will be much more of a success that Ibrahimovic has been...

On another note he is just another player for me at this point. I hope he is happy where he is cuz we sure are here! :thumbsup:

Trust isn't necessarily a good assessment, tbh...It has everything to do with players like Bojan & Pedrito! who have been playing this system & style for nearly a decade already...How can Ibra show up and be able to get that timing, movement etc. down

My opinion on that hasn't wavered since his arrival, he simply hasn't transitioned into the first XI well enough...yet.

I made the comparisons to Titi's first season at Barca which was a disaster in a sporting sense yet he rebounded to become a major factor and success in year two...I suspect that a player that talented, like Ibra, will have similar success in year two...And to trump a season where he had more than 21 goals and 11 assists?...I think there's no reason at all to be down on Ibra, from a Barca perspective

A bit off topic, obviously, but Bojan is a potential star from La Masia...However, it's all down to experience, strength & confidence...It's growing for 'the kid' but I think he surely will get more playing time next season

Bojan is an interesting youth product who has been heralded in a way that not even Leo experienced when he was at La Masia...Apparently, he's scored a thousand goals during his youth days and he's long been held as a 'Messi-heir'...Personally, I think there is a lot of overhype on the kid but the talent is definitely there

I still have a hard time believing it's been 100 matches played...He's barely started matches and has come on as a sub at a variety of times but with between 40-50 matches a season, it's conceivable for him to have hit 100 but I find it unlikely...He's been on the bench a lot during these past 3 seasons which makes a number like 100 a bit tough to reach, IMHO

As for what Barca will do going forward IF Villa arrives, I don't think it's going to be such an issue for Ibra, tbh...Perhaps more for Bojan but he still will see ample playing time depending on matchups and form.

Villa would be taking over for Henry at that left forward spot despite being ideally a CF...The CF spot will remain Ibra's until he's deemed surplus...The thing about formations for Barca's trident is that it's more of a fluid concept where all 3 interchange positions throughout a match.

Barca's offense demands really understanding the nuances of the movement and linkup that has become second nature for the La Masia grads (Villa is an extension of that having featured with Furia Roja and the chemistry with Cesc, Xavi & Iniesta)...Ibra has to be given more time to learn that aspect of it...He's never going to be a Samu in terms of pace, pressure and tracking back but he will need to learn better how to link up and improve his movements within the offense of how Barca plays...For every offensive stud to come to Barca, they've all had more than a season to acclimate before really learning it...Ibra is uber talented so I have little doubt he can fit in

I suspect we'll see one of two things happen...They'll succeed with the trident of Villa-Ibra-Leo or they will mix it up with two rotations of attacks, with the other featuring Bojan instead of Ibra

Those appearances in his debut season were largely ceremonial, he'd get a run out here or there but minutes wise they were quite few in comparison to the last two...Still, you think you could count off the top of your head all the appearances subs have made in the last 3 seasons, eh? :rollani:

dude you dont get my point, what im trying to say is that for a 17 yr old to play 40+ games in a season(and his break-out one at that) is not something that you would normally look over.

more so is due to the fact that i think he scored 12 goals that season and had his most number of appearances. so unless youre one of those people that just jumped on the bandwagon and only rant and rave about messi,xavi,iniesta(there are alot of those out there), its a pretty momarable thing.

Ha, I was Barca fan way before you :boogy: But then I started watching serie a in 1997, and well here I am :)

About Villa, we've seen how well he gels with Torres in the NT, do you really think he can offer the kind of movement like Pedro on the wings? Wouldn't it make more sense to just stick Villa in the CF position like he's used and more comfortable playing in, rather than trying to accommodate Ibra? Ibra isn't one of those malleable type forwards like Rooney, Eto'o, Van Persie, Kuyt or Tevez. Plus he's nearing 30. Ibra has one style of playing that he's comfortable with and that is, to use a term from PES, as a "post-player" who likes to collect passes and hold up the ball, not the sort who offers a lot of off-the-ball running and create space for others. Guardiola will either have to conform or just bench Ibra. A better alternative would be to sell and recoup your loses.

Guardiola will either have to conform or just bench Ibra. A better alternative would be to sell and recoup your loses.

First off, Villa has been having Iniesta, Xavi & Cesc pull the midfield strings for Furia Roja for some time now...He'll have the most seamless transition for a forward player that Barca has ever bought, IMHO...Valencia with Silva is eerily similar to Xavi & the NT...And the beauty of a Villa is that he can play anywhere up in that trident despite flourishing as a true CF.

Thing is, he may indeed end up taking that CF position but as you mentioned, Ibra is more of a true CF and less effective on the flanks, obviously...It's for that reason that I suspect that Pep will try to integrate Ibra & Villa in that manner.

21 goals, 11 assists...For a CF...How many clubs in the world would love to have that sort of center forward who missed many matches despite that tally?...Far too premature to deem him a loss let alone a need to recoup anything

He's better than I thought he was and I look forward to another season of him getting into the system of Barca's offense

Definitely haven't gotten 'your point', tbh.

His breakout or 'rookie' season was a big deal for a variety of reasons but he's hardly someone that I have overlooked...He's been hyped for almost as long as I have followed Barca during his youth years...There was talk he'd play the season before he did, when he was just 16, as well.

My point on his appearances for the '07-'08 season was that it was Ronnie et al's swan song and Bojan was hardly the focal point let alone a memorable aspect of the season (Apart from his debut)...There was a lot of drama in Rijkaard's last season at the helm which probably muted, for me, Bojan's appearances...I would wager most of his appearances were substitute and in the dying moments of a match (Rijkaard tended to only make subs if they were needed, not necessarily to give a player a run out - except in Bojan's case, IMHO)...Rijkaard was the same manager that gave Messi his early playing and did so in a judicious manner so as not to wear the lad out at the time

I don't rant or rave and certainly not about the usual stars that get plenty of their own hype without any assistance from me...I tend to have 'pet' players or players I think are destined for great things from La Masia...Pedrito! is just such an example although he's already exceeding my expectations from 2008.

Bojan is easy for me to overlook because he's a bit like the 'golden child' who's been hyped for too long...Truth is I was worried about him last season because he seemed to lack the confidence to take it up a notch although he has made great strides this season (I do wonder if Pedrito! has impacted that maturation for him, seeing a lesser known player steal the limelight & expectations from him)

Keep an eye out for these next two budding La Masia stars, Thiago Alcantara & Jonathon Dos Santos

Yeah I've seen various rumors stating he may be going to the EPL...particularly to Arsenal as Barcelona might use him as an 'incentive' to try and acquire Fabregas now that Fabregas has apparently declared he wants to go back to Barcelona...

How truly accurate those rumors are I have no idea...I don't really think they are as the media now seems to make any kind of story which involves Fabregas to Barca, no matter how strange...

IMO I think they would make a mistake selling him after only one season...I feel the money spent for him makes him too big of an investment to give so easily up on...also, with Barcelona having gone through the Henry ordeal you'd think they'd be the best club to have the most patience with these integration issues...

We can all agree that if Villa comes (which seems very likely), Ibrahimovic's life will not be any easier...frankly, it will be interesting to see not only how he plans to keep up his credentials for the first team, but also how Barcelona will try to incorporate Ibra/Villa...you think they could use Ibra as a wide attacker, in place of Pedro? Frankly if Villa comes, I can't see the management having much patience with Ibra...Villa is used to the Barca midfield from the Spain NT so he will have no problem fitting in...

All in all I feel giving up on him now is a mistake...hold on to him 1 more year and then let him go if things don't work out...

18 May 10, 23:53
Good points, Aries...But, for me, the Cesc thing is gonna happen - it was inevitable.

The only issue is likely trying use players to bring the pricetag down since the outgoing board isn't really in a position to spend future money on new transfers in all likelihood...With Yaya, Ibra & Hleb as potential pieces to move, I guess someone will have to go in the other direction.

As for Ibra leaving, I wouldn't like it either

Ibra's main competitor in the lineup would be Pedro, Villa won't be on the bench. Also I think Ibra can play on the wing, although he might be a little too slow nowadays.

We need 6 high quality forwards if we are playing a 4-2-3-1 system regularly. Plus Ibra can play in Milito's role, can play in every role in the attack. He is a cunt but he is a heck of a player in Calcio. Anyone disregarding that should go back to the 60's, today football has changed.

Txiki basically shot down all the rumours of Ibra being sold or transferred today...There's usually little subterfuge in his comments wrt transfers/sales etc., so if he says he's staying, then he's staying.

Of course, with a new election and Txiki's role a bit uncertain...Who knows ultimately

If we wanna play 4-2-3-1 we would need 1 quality CF, two quality wingers who are willing to track back and 2 versatile players who can play as either a CF and a winger.

We have A CF in Milito, our two quality wingers and one of those two back ups. We don't need Ibra! He will never be accepted here by neither the players or the Curva Nord. Did you guys see what happened after the Barca game? Not one players hugged or even went to exchange shirts or was seen talking to Ibra in either of our 4 games against them. That in itself says alot. We don't need Ibra as we've proved this season we're better without him in every single way. We're scoring more goals, winning more trophies, winning the Coppa, reaching the final of the UCL, and not a one man team.

Getting Ibra for anything will fuck up everything we've worked towards this season. It will push Inter back 4 years and we will without a doubt go back to choking in the UCL. And as much as I love winning the Scudetto, I have to tell you that knowing that Inter still have to play one more game after winning the league is an amazing feeling.

You bring up a good point, Man City could definitely be a club to table an offer for Ibrahimovic.

And knowing how they are not afraid to use as much money as it takes, they could really have a chance at convincing Barcelona...also with Barcelona in need of money to try and go for Cesc...the situation may happen...

If the planets to in fact align with Man City and they land Ibrahimovic, just imagine what a blow it would be to his ego...to be shown the door of his dream club after one season, and not even play CL football :lol:

Tuttosport is Rubentus household paper.
They are full of crap, as I for one don't see any chance of him coming to Rubentus.

His ego and ambitions are way too big for such a step back, also I doubt they have the money to pay for him.
Even if they would somehow gather the financial resources, the rest of their team would remain virtually unchanged, and so, as crappy as today, with or without Ibra :lol:

I for one don't understand Barca's management.
Why such hurry in buying Villa?
Perhaps they were afraid that Real or some other team would get him faster.

However Barcelona worked perfect this season with the exception of our semi-final clash :boogy:, so I see no reason to imbalance the squad.

Why make such drastical changes to a team that was almost perfect.
I understand the bond to Fabregas and perhaps the need for them to maintain the same quality if one of Iniesta or Xavi is injured, but to also buy Villa is actually dangerous.
Because Zlatan will want, more than sure, to prove himself at Barca another season, he will refuse to leave.
We know him well.

And that means that some young player has to go or warm the bench: Pedro or Bojan, I think.
Either would be a good adition to our attacking roster :D, although I find it hard to believe that the Catalans will give away their home-grown players so easy.

I can't believe I'm saying this after just one year, but Ibra's return to us might also imbalance our squad.
We are now a team and it seems we don't need him anymore.
At least if Jose stays with us!

I respect everything Zlatan did for our team, but I can't help to notice the irony in everything that is happening to him.
We are going to win the CL final, and he won't be part of it.

It seems that his huge ego, ambition and pride have backfired on him and that Life is playing him a huge joke.

No, it wasn't a fear of losing him to a rival, it had everything to do with the election...It's interesting, actually, the nuances to when and how transfers are made...In the case of Villa, he was, again, pursued as the first option to replace Samu last season...Valencia balked despite Barca being the player's dream move and having pleaded his case to Llorente...With Laporta hoping to wrap up no less than 2 key transfers in advance of the mid June Presidential elections, the hope was to undercut any potential signings that other candidates could use to bolster their chances...The idea being, that a continuity candidate of Laporta's backing would have a leg up, so to speak...Personally, I like the move from Laporta.

I'll concede that most of you fans know Ibra better than I do but I've yet to see any concerns from the player to warrant too much worry at this point...Worst case scenario, he moves and Barca recoups what they can on his pricetag.

As for the drastic changes, Villa was always Option #1 for the Samu replacement...That simply was moved 1 year later.



And that means that some young player has to go or warm the bench: Pedro or Bojan, I think.

Bojan was and remains a sub, that doesn't change...Pedrito! is the one who may go to the bench but I suspect that part of Pep's aim for the upcoming season is to rotate players more than he did these past 2 seasons...Too many minutes on a small squad ended up putting a strain on some key players during the season.



Either would be a good adition to our attacking roster :D, although I find it hard to believe that the Catalans will give away their home-grown players so easy.

Moreover, it's unlikely the Catalan or Masia players will want to go anywhere

Ibra is the past. He achieved great things with Inter and vice versa but he's moved on and so should everyone else. Someone on this forum once described (and I'm paraphrasing here) Ibra as that ex-gf that you really want back but is it really worth it? I mean she'll give you great head (suck your pee-pee if you're not entirely familiar with the English language) but she also comes with baggage. Sometimes it's just better to let go of her and go find another girl who can also give great head but won't break down in tears after you ate the last bit of ice cream.

I don't think Ibra will leave Barca yet, even though Villa has now joined the team. I reckon it will be Henry that leaves as he is older and has not been such a high profile player in recent times - also there is reported interest from America as well as French teams?

As for Ibra coming back to Inter I am not against the idea as he played a big part in giving us several Scudetto's - but as long as we don't have to pay more than £25m for him!

Overall I hope we can bring in Aguero as he is young and very classy and being Argentine will fit right into our squad - and by the time he settles into the team fully in 1-2 years time he will be able to take over from Milito who will be moving on by that point?

People who want him back just prove how clueless they are. Sorry if I'm being this offensive, but it's true.

We should never EVER take this selfish bitch back. He cares only about himself, nobody else. Same as with Balotelli, but Ibrahimovic is a little better because at least he waited until he left to start dissing the club and us fans, while the Idiot is already pissing on the colors while still in the club.

But I went off the topic.

Ibrahimovic deserves this all. Seeing how Barca is getting Villa, which is obvious slap in the face as it shows Barcelona doesn't count and trust Ibrahimovic anymore.

I hope he will be told to either accept Man City offer, or he will play with La Masia or the fuck they're called, until the end of his contract.

£40M to spend + Eto, an offer Moratti wasnt able to resist.

No point in blaming Ibrahimovic though, he might've lacked the attitude and killer instinct in big matches, that was elucidated against Arsenal in the first leg and also against Inter, nevertheless a fanstastic footballer. He had nothing left to prove in Italy, abandoned his national team with his international career in doldrums, and Barcelona appearing to nearest team capable of winning multiple CL's he made his move. Overall it proved beneficial to Inter in terms of cash and team balance.

Imagine Zlatan playing instead of Eto who has looked out of depth in my opinion apart from his goals, Inter would've definitely won the CL more comfortably.

Eto'o is one of the most important parts of our team. The way he back tracks, covers space, creates space and sets up play with Sneijder was just amazing. If Eto'o was the one red carded in Barcelona, I assure you we would not have won.

2nd, replacing Zlatan with Eto'o now will change our ENTIRE strategy, not just formation. Eto'o plays as a wide forward on a 4-3-3 and defending like his city is about to be run over by vikings, can you see Zlatan doing that?

Only way he can fit...is if he takes Militos spot. Now how many Inter fans do you think are willing to let go of a guy who scored the winning goals in all 3 competitions.

You have a Manchester United logo as you avatar and not an Inter logo. That alone should indicate to you, how little you know about how things have gone on at Inter before or after Zlatan. So therefore, your opinion counts as much as that of the football "experts" who didn't believe Inter had a chance of winning the UCL. (I'm not saying they had no reason to believe that, I'm saying that they were dead wrong.)

In addition to that, the mere fact that this guy went to Bartha and couldn't beat us with the "weaker" Eto'o then that alone tells you that he would not have done shit with this "weaker" Inter.

Eto is not played as a striker, at Inter he has been paid a wage more than his worth and rightly he's mum. He's no Jesus either, a trouble maker at Mallorca towards the end of his loan and also during the period when his contract extension talks were in place at Barca.

Mourinho being a reputed manager was able to keep his ego down but he's not a player who would happily play a second fiddle to Milito. I expect him to make more noises at the end of his season, moving towards England if he's persisted as an AM with low goal returns. Nevertheless, had Zlatan played instead of Milito...Inter would've fluffed in the CL.

I support United it shouldnt mean posters with an Inter logo have all done some doctorate on the Italian team over the last three seasons. Before the start of the season Barcelona were clearly the favourites to retain the title with Ancelotti providing the CL pedigree Chelsea were the biggest threat.

In the next rung United, Inter and Real Madrid all had even chances, but United did have lesser chance of bottling compared to the remaining two.

Inter were able to beat Barca because they had/have the best backline in Europe, a no nonsense striker who can hold up the ball and doesent miss chances like Zlatan and Sneijder brilliantly linking the midfield and attack. But nobody would've backed Inter at the start of the season to win the CL, the current inter was much similar to Manchester United 98-99..team spirit and tactics all settling in place at the right time.

Ibra even if he was our key of success in the bast years but he was the ultimate shit according to his attitude and effort (surprisingly that was enough for him to shine in the calcio but not in CL)

£40M to spend + Eto, an offer Moratti wasnt able to resist.

No point in blaming Ibrahimovic though, he might've lacked the attitude and killer instinct in big matches, that was elucidated against Arsenal in the first leg and also against Inter, nevertheless a fanstastic footballer.
we are not a selling club and do not have high debts that would force to sell our most important player at the time.
Zanetti thats what we call a fantastic footballer.not ibra or ronaldo

zlatan won the CL for inter as well, because his transfer founds made this team possible.

Etoo:“Ibrahimovic has kissed the shirt of Barça? That’s his choice. I won’t do that for now because I first want to earn the trust of the fans on the pitch. Ibrahimovic is a great player but I am Samuel Eto’o and my past and my victories speak for me. I do not like comparisons. I wish Zlatan all the best.”

And he left for CL glory... :)

It's without doubt the biggest owned in history of football like i said months ago. Iam sure he is devastated right now and he don't even plays the world cup.

Thanks for the 45 millions and Eto'o, thanks!

Our play used to be incredibly boring with Zlatan.

And one more thing about the comparison with Milito. Zlatan would have hit it in the stands for the two chances that Milito got.

Milito is a genius compared to Ibrahimovic. And the talk that if we had Ibra we would've won easier? :lol: Eto is one of the reasons why we managed to get that CL trophy, his hard work and team work (something that Ibra never had, cuz he is an individual and plays for himself) were crucial.
