wasn't even a poacher's goal though. Leapt highest from a corner and glanced it pass the keeper. 

True... What I meant is that in the box is where he’s most valuable and that’s why it was so questioned when he was signed because Barcelona haven’t ever played with a traditional 9 as its not their style. Look at what happened to Zlatan, he just didn’t cut it!  The last traditional 9 I can remember that played quite a bit was Julio Salinas in Cruyff’s era as Barça coach and even then he wasn’t a starter but came on almost every game.

Just to add my two pence worth on a man of the match today... Denis Suárez.  Everyone knows how talented he is but he’s been accused of being toothless in the fight and today he showed that he does possess this and coupled with his extraordinary technical ability, today he was for me the main man.

Kluivert I would say was the last traditional number 9 for Barcelona that was succesful.

Hmmm... Was he a natural 9? I saw him more like a David Villa type attacker that would love to come in from wide positions. But maybe you’re right mate.  All the same traditional 9s at Barça are a rarity.

Well he was very skillful for a tall player but he was always played as the Number 9 for the national side,  also with Barcelona he played with Overmars, Rivaldo, Figo on the wings.
