    Etoo prime was class, pure class but i think prime Suarez (2013-2016) was a bit better.
    Barca will win the league, trust me.

    Edit (after 2-1 loss against Cadiz): Don't trust me.

    Edit2 (after 1-1 against Eibar): Its over guys.

    Edit3 (after Real 1-1 against Elche): Congratulations Atletico.

    Atletico & Real out of Copa: Lets win this fucking trophy guys

    There is also a second leg.....

    Edit4 (after Atletico 2-2 against Celta): Never give up guys.

    Edit (after 0-2 against Levante): We are back yeaaaah

    Don't think so, he scored more golazos, but overall movement and playmaking even in the prime of Suarez, Eto'o was faster, more mobile, more hardworking. And he scored just as many of not more big goals.

    What's Suarez's prime at Barca basically? 2014-15 and that's about it?

    Eto'o could win at least one world POTY at his prime, not Suarez. However I really like the uruguayan and his determination on the field. Clearly a top 3 strikers of the last decade.

    Imagine prime Eto'o feeding on the through-balls from prime Messi.


    Eto'o > Suarez in my book.

    Also worth mentioning Eto'o was more Barcelonista than 99% of home boys.

    I add that Eto'o was a good dribbler and more versatile compared to Suarez. That's the advantage of Eto'o.

    Club de Amigos even back then

    Anyway,I was a little bit young to remember,but I think that prime Eto'o>prime Suarez.But,that said, I think that regarding their whole career at Barca: Suarez > Eto'o.

    He slayed Bayern in 3 successive seasons in the CL.

    2008/09, where we absolutely stomped them.
    2009/10, where Inter beat them in the CL final.
    2010/11, where Inter trolled them again for good measure...I think a 3-2 win at the Allianz



    He was just a big game beast.

    At Anzhi Makhachkala of course. Amazing how they bought Eto'o a Bugatti and he was flown in per helicopter to every training session or something like that.

    Eto'o was simply a perfect striker for Barca and the definition of a big game player. It's been said a 1000 times over but what a massive mistake we made in getting rid of him.
