HoylandOwl Posted October 6, 2022 Share Posted October 6, 2022 Yes, everyone is talking about him but it’s not surprising. His record so far this season (and previous record too) is bloody ridiculous. I may have already said it on here but he has an ‘old fashioned’ knack of being in the right place at the right time. So many of his goals have come so far within say 10 yards of goal. The rebounds seem to drop his way, or the ball falls into his path off the keeper (like last night). It’s like it’s drawn to him. We saw when he scored his first for City he can power away from defenders, and smash it in, he’s scored headers too, he’s aggressive attacking the ball… Is he the all round striker? I think so. Owen had pace, but was a poacher and goals from distance weren’t his thing, Van Nistelrooy was a pure poacher. Henry has a bit of everything but wasn’t as aggressive and more cultured a player. Aguero had great movement and was a finisher, as was Robbie Fowler. Im not saying Hirsty and Haaland are in the same league, different eras, different football, different opponent. But in terms of all round style I don’t recall anyone like Haaland since him. Can you? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
