He did give that amazing pass to Dejan who missed it. But then again he did miss his share of chances. I think Inter's midfield is similar to that of Real Madrid, they don't give enough support to the forwards. How many times did Zlatan pick the ball from the halfway line? He needed support. I didn't agree with Mourinho replacing Vieira with Muntari as I thought he was bad and was giving Inter a physical edge in midfield.

Ibra as sole target man doesn't work in the CL... he's too lazy to deserve such a wage but he's not to blame that Inter got kicked out (once again)

Ibra is obviously a ridiculously talented player, but as we saw last night, sometimes he holds the ball too much. There was one play for example where he had Balotelli wide in a lot of space to his left and Stankovic wide in a lot of space to his right and what did he do? He lost the ball like an idiot, trying to dribble 3 players............Also, he needs to play as a second striker IMO, not as a target man

That's bollocks as it can happen to anyone... Zlatan gave some good service in the game and showed that he can pass very well... you can't expect him to read every move of his teammates as he's a striker and not a playmaker

*edit* I agree that he would work better as second striker though

That was an example of when it happened once. It happens all the time though. And I'm not saying the guy cant pass, I have seen him pull off some Totti-esque passes, the problem with him is that too often he doesn't do the simple passes...........But for him I think the main thing is is he needs to play with another striker and he should not be expected to play as a target man

I thought Ibra tried very hard last night, I was very impressed with Inter as a whole to be honest. Their fightback was inspiring unlike Madrid, who caved in after Liverpool scored. Inter never stopped believing.

Ibra played well last night, he gave Rio Ferdinand a big scare, which I havnt seen anyone do in a long time, his touch and take down is probably one the best in world football with Berbatov, The thing wrong with Ibra is his desire, he just seems to not have that winning passion of a Ronaldo, Messi, Gerrard etc.

:thumbsup:

Inter are absolutely crap without Ibra. He's been getting a lot of praise from last nights performance, being a complete nuisance for the United defence, its just a shame that he miscued a few chances for goal.

If he'd scored yesterday, people would be kissing his :ass: and comparing him to R9. Footballs a funny and cruel game at times.
