Also when you look at haaland you know he's Norwegian. Only 2 people I know who you can just look at and say that guy is Norwegian. The first one is Norway nick the Madrid fan and this guy.

Great post giving your thoughts Thimmy and makes sense.

I knew more of Haaland than Ødegaard than Haaland (latter I took notice when he came to La Real) and along with me I do not think anyone can say that Haaland screamed talent because at most we've noticed him due to his goals and not the other thing he does, even if albeit impressive.

Both are bound to end up having very good careers even if Ødegaard's trajectory is far more delicate and nuanced.

About time Scandinavia gets a player who can match up to Ibra.

I think Ibra is in a league of his own, in terms of pure entertainment and commercial value. He has such a creative and unique side to the way he plays, and I've always been impressed by how technically skillful he is - especially, for someone of his height. Haaland has a similar, yet contrasting quality in being olympic-level fast and being mobile over shorter distances, as well as having quick reflexes, despite his size. He's not a flair and trickery- type of player, but more of a well-rounded one who does the basics better than most.

I do enjoy watching him use brute force to bulldoze his way past his markers. I've never seen anyone else do that on a relatively consistent basis, quite the way he does it. But again, that's a very basic quality that he excels at. He has his own, quirky running style and general style of play that's quite unique to him, but he doesn't strike me as an entertainer or someone who distinguishes himself with a unique set of skills. He might one day reach a similar level of professional accomplishment as Ibra, for all I know, but in terms of cult status and commercial swagger, I don't know if there will ever be another, Scandinavian footballer quite like Zlatan. That combination of ability and charm don't come around very often Smile

Halaand might not be a very skilful player but I'd rather have someone who nails a 100% of the most important thing at a world class level than a player who just does so many things averagely or just at an above average level.

What I'm most impressed by is that the things halaand does are things that can't be thought by anybody, they're mainly instinctive. BTW I've seen halaand score harder goals with a stronger set of skillset than the supposed more skillful players his age tbh.

Halaand is like a less skillful Cristiano in his prime.. You were always a goal up starting with them and he's just 19.
All He has to do now is work on whatever it is that needs improvement in his game.

My prediction is that halaand ends up as a more generational player than anybody his age range.. This I just my prediction.

No on that you are right Thimmy as there is no comparison on the topic of pure raw skill let alone creativity but by that I meant the general Nordic countries have lacked a superstar in the making for a long time.


On that note I am hoping Haaland remains in Dortmund if his development is valued because we know the risk of such young nascent talents making the jump to a top club, all too soon.

Hope he smashes Paris in the second leg.
