And I'm not talking about Maxi Lopez.

I thought he was good but I was wrong. Eto'o is actually phenomenal.

I was one of the people that wanted to get him to Barcelona from the begining, I loved the guy before, not just because he is a great player, but because of his determination. I always compared him to Henry, fast, skillful, and pure class.

I wouldn't say he's the best in the World, but one of the best. He's certainly better than I thought he was. I knew was good, but I didn't know he was this good.

Is Samuel Eto'o the best striker in the world? No.

Does Samuel Eto'o have the potential to be the best striker in the world. Yes.

I still think his finishing could improve, but apart from that he's the complete package. If he continues to work hard in training and concentrate on football, then everything he's doing now will just be a taster of what he is capable of. Remember - he is only 23 years old! :eek: It seems like he has been playing for ages!

Politician: Is it OK if I edit the spelling error in the thread title? It's Barcelona, not Barçelona :)

I don't know, but probably one of the best and it's enough for me. Samuel Eto'o is achieving similar records to the ones of Romário and Ronaldo when they were in Barcelona... with a big difference, he also plays for the team and he doesn't have that stupid ego of the 2 Brazilians.

Besides, he has a particular meaning for us, he did everything in his hands to come and he's thankful to the club for our effort to sign him. Maybe he's not the best, but I would not change him for anyone.

Etoo certainly is one of the best strikers in the world. His finishing is somewhat inconsistent and lacks the heading skills of someone like RvN, but he makes up for those disadvantages in his speed, determination, versatility and technique. Whatever the case, I think he's the perfect striker for our style and our team.

The best striker in Spain? Yes.

The best in Europe? Not yet.

But he could be, he needs more clinical finishing. What frustrates me is he can miss straight forward "No. 9" chances then dribble past 2 players and score a spectacular goal :p

But he definitely surprised, before he came I thought he was pretty good but not Pichichi material, but look where he is now.
