i know villa is, he has everything a striker has, but i need to know some more, partly because you guys at XT have great knowledge of footall compared to my colleagues ( they think inzaghi is complete striker). And partly because villa would probably leave Valencia, so who can replace him.

P.S You dont have to answer the last question because this is not a valencia thread but feel free .

I know what Villa lacks from Inzaghi as a COMPLETE striker.

Inzaghi fans will think that I m criminal, if i said it first, due to obvious reasons. :D

Torres is a very complete striker. Good finishing with his feet and head. Intelligent movement off the ball, good awareness. Good dribbling ability with the ball at his feet. Villa is the more complete footballer, Torres the more complete striker.

INzaghi is more complete then villa tho, if you're speaking in terms of strikers, and not players
Do either possess an aerial threat?

It used to be Henry before he lost his form at Barca...Totti has also played as a striker lately so I would say it's him or Torres.

All those attributes relate to Benzema as well.

The most complete striker that I've ever seen and no one comes close to is MARCO VAN BASTEN

Finishing, Dribbling, First Touch, Technique, Movement, Anticipation, Flair, Creativity, Composure, Acceleration and Pace, Heading, Jumping, Strengh are the key attributes for a complete striker.

David Villa lacks Heading/Jumping/Strength but he makes up for it with determination and work rate.

The guy also bleeds on the pitch.:D
Oh and he also owns Dani Alves.

Nice bit of listing off football manager there :D
Hah, true, but those are all the things I'd look for in an RL striker as well. :tongue:

Its a difficult question, because there are many qualities that go into being a complete striker and there are many good strikers that don't have all of them. In recent (last few years) memory, I'd say Drogba comes close, Torres is good as well, perhaps Zlatan when on form.

David Villa
Re-watching our game against Sevilla last season, Villa showed in that game what he's really capable of doing :proud:
