when a player is out of form its easy to jump on the bandwagon and say "over-rated" this is usually the xt way. but saying that, most players are over-rated, its the nature of the football fan to over-rate there team/ players. ;)

i respect ur opinion but i am not saying that cuz he is not in his form , alot of forwards r out of form like adriano but i dont think he is overrated.. i am saying that cuz zlatan never imperessed me as a forwad, he is not efficient, he always try to score a beautiful goal causes him to miss alot of chances.

He lacks that final touch. Which is important. He should improve in that department. If he works and improve this, i think he could be a very good player.

i see where your coming from now, being a serie a fan your used to clinical strikers which zlatan isn't, plus his style of play can be frustrating, he likes dribbling and makes a pass when a shot might be better. in that respect he doesnt fit in and thats why probably people dont like him.

i love talented players but zlatan has problems in my opinion cuz in some times his team is losing and he tries also to show his talents, i think a gr8 player must know when to play for his team and when he plays for himself.i know zlatan is not a target man but he atleast must have an effect making assist etc .

he;s just of-form, for a long while ..

last year he was our top scorer with 16 Serie A goals and was one of the players that literally handed us the scudetto.

this year he's shit, but he's just 25, he will mature more and improve his finishing skill and passing :)

He has far, far more technical and playmaking ability than Kluivert ever had.

Fail to see why, however, Ibrahimovic is a class player who has adapted right away to Serie A (and we know that is no easy thing) and has become an chief player for Juventus after his first season. For anyone to say he is hyped, that is pure nonsense. Finishing? He is not a Trezeguet type of player so why expect him to be one? Watch the goal against in the friendly against Benfica last summer or watch the goal against Roma. How many goals has he scored in his first season? I think its 16 isn’t it? He has had a no moment but to judge him and say he is hyped because he is playing alright and not stellar, sounds silly to me.

At the end of the day strikers are judged on the amount of goals they score. If a striker isn't scoring then people will criticise. In the 2 games in Arsenal even his technique was letting him down which really isn't a good sign. The hype was warranted last season but this year he's off form so he's 'overrated', that's football.
