A little Zlatan to get you through the day

Good afternoon folks. As I sit here downing a caffeinated beverage, I can’t help but think that many of you are like me and struggling to get through the day.

If you love soccer, and I know you do, then the next best thing to caffeine (and plenty of other stimulants) is watching some beautiful soccer. With that in mind, here is a clip of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s memorable goal for Ajax. Whether you have seen it before or not, I’m sure you will still enjoy it:

    That was beautiful! He made the whole opposing team look stupid!! hahaha

    So that caffeinated beverage? It wouldn’t be a Red Bull would it? hahahaha


  • jgildea

    His combination of power and skill is really amazing. He pushes right through that first defender and the just jukes through everyone else on the team.

    Good God, this clip NEVER gets old. I’m still smiling and laughing out loud in the end. The guy in the first tackle who tries to clear just bounces off of Ibra like a friggin’ fly! Ibra is so tempermental, but aren’t all of the great ones? He is thinking so much ahead of the others on this one. Thank you Ives. I like the (new to me?) feature of afternoon video appeteasers. Now, I have to go watch this one again.


  • EssEff

    Love the shot of VdV wishing he could do half of the things that Ibra pulls off. Ok, I’ll stop the hating on VdV, but I’ve never really seen what the hype is with that dude. I’m open to others showing me the light, though.

    Great goal from a great player. Hey Ives, you got a shout out on Fox Soccer Channel on the Fox Soccer Report last night. You’re big time now, Congrats!

    “I can’t help but think that many of you are like me and struggling to get through the day.”

    Man, that last set of Q&A’s must have been REALLY difficult.


  • BJR

    Call me crazy, but aspects of Cooper’s game remind me of Zlatan.

    Foot skills for a big guy; power, accuracy, and technique of shots.


  • BJR

    As I was typing the first post I was debating whether or not to include the following disclaimers. So here goes…

    I was not trying to imply that Cooper is Zlatan or that he will become the next Zlatan, but that there is potential in his development based on the similarities.


  • Casey C.

    These people can be snobby and jump on you for your valid points. But they were just that, valid.

    If Cooper fits the “mold” of any great strikers from today, it’s Ibra and his size.

    Well said BJR.


  • Geoff

    I believe John O’Brien was on that team starting at left back when Ronald Koeman was manager


  • EssEff

    I knew Zlatan. I served with Zlatan. Cooper, you are no (nor will ever be) Zlatan or Zlatanesque.

    Coop is freakey big though.


  • BFBS

    Me no like Ronald Koeman (see: Beasley, DaMarcus; Albelda, David; Great Players Not In New Coach’s Plans For No Apparent Reason).


  • HomeyBoehme

    I’m not sure I’ve seen that many kick-feints in a row work like that. Not even in a video game.
