What do Serbian football fans think of him anyway? average?, so-so?, great?
Do think he can become a very consistent goal-scorer for the national team as well?

Why did he refuse to play for his country for a little while?

Cause he's crap.

Baz, I get the chance to watch him on a weekly basis, which means I see him against Groningen as well as against Monaco. If keza were to remain in the Dutch league he'd remain king for a while but as soon as he leaves he'll be exposed for the crappy striker he in fact is.

In his head he's a star, on the pitch he can score while being assisted by Robben (for the Serbs who don't know, the next big thing and almost off to Man Utd) and Rommedahl. In our NT we don't play with wingers which among other things means Keza has to create chances for himself and here you can see his first weakness. When lucky he could pass one player but never 2. In the Dutch league he averages about 5 good chances a match, in CL 1 or 2 if he's lucky and almost never manages to score which means he isn't that productive as most Serbs (P-zan fans ;)) assume he is.

If I had it my way we'd never call him again for the NT as we're loaded with good experienced strikers and have some young talents coming up.

An argument with Savicevic and Stojkovic (real legends) caused his first spell away from the NT. Keza dared to blame our midfield, (Djordjevic, Stankovic etc) for not scoring. A bit overconfident IMO. ;)

His workrate however is very good and should be praised and off the pitch he's a stand up guy who helps out his people which is good. I have nothing against the guy, however I don't believe people outside of Eindhoven and Humska (P-zan) will remember the guy for his "amazing" skills.

We've had these discussions before

OK, here I go, we'll see where I'll finish...

Although I have followed Kezman for quite some time now and I always hope he does great, has been one of my favourite players for a couple of years, I also am aware of his weaknesses, pretty well pointed out by Drulo, he is not a dribbler and he lacks good ball control and passing skills, he simply can't create on his own, but there are different types of strikers, doesn't mean one is better than the other, the important thing is to use you good sides and fit well with the way the team plays. As an example compare Inzaghi and Ronaldo's scoring in the CL, I think Inzaghi has scored more goals/game, and yet he isn't even close to the skills of Ronaldo when it comes to scoring on his own or creating opportunities alone. Inzaghi is a better finisher than Kezman, but he has played on a higher level longer. I think Kezman would adjust well with better and quicker defenders, he doesn't have to be 100% concentrated in the Dutch league, scores more than a goal/game anyway the last 2 seasons. Give him a couple of months in a tighter league and he will finish much better, he has the rest (speed, agility, determination, shoots with both feet) he needs to get the chances.

My explanations for the NT and CL:
NT: He wasn't the only striker not to be able to score, the midfield was totally slow and uncreative, and he won't dribble past 3 defenders alone, he'll find a free spot, and get there, then you have to pass the ball well, and of course, he has to finish well, but that will get better when he gets better practice.

CL: Not scoring in the CL is also very much because PSV's midfield couldn't dominate like they do in Holland and there are many strikers that are more established than him that also miss the kind of chances Kezman gets in the CL, but yes, he should have scored at least a couple of goals more, but then there is my theory about him not being totally focused because of the lack of enough challenge in the dutch league.

It sounds like I'm blaming the midfielders (like he did), but I am just saying that he needs alot of support and that he can't play in a team that doesn't have a quick and creative midfield, he doesn't fit there, and therefore in the NT, let's hope the system changes or I also think he won't be of much use, at least not for a while. A player like Ljuboja or Milosevic can hold the ball and have other good sides, but on an NT level, they won't score much on their own, so the problem is not really Kezman I think, but that's my opinion.

I think he could do very well outside Holland, especially in the EPL, but Bazman, as Drulo said, think about the fact that I am a Partizan fan. ;)

...and that's my finish.

This has been talked about over and over again for years now! With the exact same arguments from those that attack/defend him everytime! All I will say is, 5 goals in 5 matches against Red Star..:)

I must agree with Komik and also say Drulo is being too harsh.
Kezman is not crap. Crap players don't score as much as he does (regardless if it's the Dutch league - sure it isn't Spain but it ain't Moldova either). He is right on some point though, as Komik pointed out.

Kezman is simply the type of striker who totally relies on midfield support. There are many such strikers out there. Inzaghi fits that profile as well. I'd also like to mention that Kezman himself said how Hiddink (PSV's coach) also taught him to play such a role, a striker that stays upfront waiting for balls from midfield. Kezman is certainly no playmaker, but he does his job.

Kezman is first of all a very decent person, inteligent and articulate fellow, good professional but of limited football talent. Taken all the above together, he is an asset for the team like PSV as he was an asset for Partizan. However, in a stronger league and on the international scene those qualities appear not to be good enough for him to excell as he has done in the Yugo and Dutch leagues. My guess is that he should stay with PSV as long as he can score goals since this stint will be the crown of his career as a footballer. He may do well later as a businessman or as a journalist, since he has shown abilities in those areas too.

Keza needs to be mentally tougher

I actually admire Kezman and cannot accept that people reckon he is crap etc. You do not score that many goals in a decent league like Holland's and say that he cannot play. I however believe that Kezman biggest problem is mental. I truly believe that the man needs to be mentally tougher to succeed at the next level. His next move should be in England. I cannot see another league that would suit his style.

Correct me if I am wrong gentleman but does he not play a little like Pancev used to for Red Star. IE Pancev really needed a strong midfield, good wingers etc. Even though I believe that Pancev was physically stronger and was able to 'shield' the ball better than Kezman.

Fleka, sorta like Pancev yes. As far as I remember Pancev went to Inter (?) where they found such a style of his to be useless and after that....well I don't know what happened to him.

I think for people who don't know Kezman, and who think he is amazing since he scores so many goals in Holland are being fooled. He isn't a horrible player, he's alright, but he just hasn't reached that level yet where he can be considered a world-class striker. He needs to prove himself outside of Holland and other smaller leagues and prove that he is one of the best while playing with the best against the best.
I have nothing against the guy, infact I respect him for many of the things he has done of the field, but, with all honesty, I don't think he has it in him to reach that next level, but maybe that's just me...

I think we'll find out pretty soon, I don't think he'll stay in PSV very long and then we'll see who was right about him.
We all know he is not a complete footballer (although he has improved alot since leaving Partizan), but that he can score a lot of goals for PSV in the dutch league, but the rest we'll see.

Remember, Ronaldo, Romario, and van Nistelrooij were also bought by big overseas clubs coz of their impressive performances in the "Dutch" league, not Champions League :)
