Pogba's biggest fan
- Dec 6, 2015
I think the way Suarez took to Liverpool, and made such an immediate impact, he was a player that dragged his peers up multiple levels and was the main man behind a title charge. Haaland doesn't do that. OK he has scored goals quickly, in a far easier league where teams are far more open than in the Premier League. But when I see that list and I see it too 91 games for Suarez to hit 50 Liverpool, I just find that pretty standout.I agree that PL>BL but the gap is much closer than shunning 20 y/o Haaland taking 54 games to score 50 in favour of 26 y/o Suarez taking 91 games to score 50. PL isn't 70% better than BL, nor is it harder to perform in for a player in his prime than BL is for a player in his youth.
That is beside the point though, since PL only covers 1/5 of the big 5 leagues. PL > Bundes=La liga=Serie A > Ligue 1.
Bottom line: Haaland is the real deal
For Haaland to come in the Bundasliga and score so many so quickly is obviously very commendable. But its also far more of an open league than the Premier League by way of how the teams play. I don't see many teams that have much defensive solidarity. Heck Bayern lead the pack there and have conceded almost 2x City, and more than United. That's before you look at the rest of the teams, I think one of the sides have conceded 76 goals and the league isn't over yet
