Larsson may not be the best ever but there are few forwards who have the skill and the flair the super swedish striker posseses. He managed to score over 50 goals for us in one season after just coming back from havin broken his leg.
You could say the same thing about Mario Jardel (42 goals in Championship, and I don't know how many in cups,...) : these are good striker in one season, in not-that-good championships (no offence) and when all the team play for them.
That's why strikers like Henry, v. Nistelrooy, Vieri, even Ronaldo deserve to be called the best ones.
The only thing Jardel was being in the right place at the right time. The man didnt even need to run and couldnt do nothing with a ball at his feet.
In all fairness however Man Unite plays for v. Nistelrooy.
One of the best Keeper ive seen in years is 18 year old David Marshall for Celtic although he isnt the best he is a definite up and comer and is sure to be in my dream team in a few years. I would have to agree that if schmeichel where still playing i would pick him.
He played one season in Sporting and he help us a lot to win the league...And Jardel too
Jardel was a great player and he knew waht to do with the ball in his feet. We cant forget the goals he scored in Champions League against top defences of the greatest european teams, not only in leagues as G.P. wrote.
I think he almost 30 goals in Uefa competitions as Porto, Sporting and Galatasary player. And at least 24 of them only in Champions League in trhee years playing for Porto and Galatasaray. It is a great mark.
His problem now is psicological and only since he got the divorce from his wife
A great player but a stupid and silly guy. I think his career is near over.

Oh please, the man couldnt make a drible (or whatever the hell its called in english). Plus he was a lazy ass. Even before his ass got to heavy (fat!) to run. He was good at placing himself and the team played for him. The whole psychological thing was because he wanted to leave Sporting. The wife bit was bogus.
