    Patrick Kluivert

    Patrick Kluvert, Dutch striker who played for Barcelona between 1998 and 2004.


    I know fans have mixed feelings about Pat, but talent-wise he's up there with Ronaldo and Romario as one of the most naturally gifted strikers of all time. While he never lived up to his ability and his love of the nightlife often overshadowed his career, he was consistently good for an unpredictable Barcelona and scored at least 15 goals a season every year until his last for the club. He is still the all time top scorer for the Dutch national team and unless Ruud finds the fountain of youth it's very likely he will stay that way for quite a while.


    I bring Kluivert up because Casillas recently called him the most impressive player he ever played against. That's pretty damn impressive when you consider the fact that Casillas played against virtually everyone of note in the past decade.


    Who is the best striker you’ve ever faced?
    Kluivert has impressed me more than anyone else. We played a friendly at La Cartuja against the Netherlands after the Euro held in their country. We defeated them 2-1. It was Hasselbaink who scored, not Kluivert.

    Thats a bit strange considering his less than impressive record against Iker.

    I love Kluivert. Two things stand for me: His heading technique, and his ability to land a fighter jet on his feet. I'll try to find an assist he gave to Saviola some years ago. The control was breathtaking.

    This. I'm sure Meta was a big fan of him.

    I was always a big fan of him, He was there when I started to like Barca and he was easily one of my favourite players.

    Finally I found it. I apologize for making you go through a Saviola compilation but fuck me, check out the pass on 1:07.

    Nice. I loved Kluivert as well. Great striker for us. Too bad he sucked afterwards.

    Wow, Meta was a Kluivert fan? How shocking.

    And yes that assist to Saviola was downright filthy. Damn. Pat was everything you wanted in a striker at his best.

    Yeah, but I'm proud I got to make it. He was the best CF when I became a fan after all.

    There's already an Abelardo topic.

    What's really shocking though is no Cocu topic.
