Which one do you think would suite juve more??

I think trez has adapted to italian football, but in general, i think kluivert is better, but then again when you look at kluiverts record in italy, it is awful and i dont think it would be easy for him to adapt to italian football, he had enough trouble with milan.

overall, Kluivert is more complete. but i think Trez Suits juve pretty well because we have DP and Neddy to provide. we also have Camo who plays wide. + he has already proved himself with juve.

BTW, i'm not suggesting that Kluivert couldn't make it with juve. you can't really judge a player from his performance with another league team.
Davids is a good example. he hasn't played well with Milan, yet he has done well with juve.

of course Tom, we all know you have a fetish for kluivert.

you know what i love about kluivert.......he seems to score so much more than trezeguet:D

seriously, kluivert at juve would be a waste. TRez is what we need.....a striker who finsihes and can score 25 plus goals a season. kluivert doesnt do that.

shouldnt really comapre actually, they are different types of strikers.

if i had to replace trez at juve, only Adriano would be the man for me.

Trez is more consistent IMO, and he's better at shooting on the turn.

Speed: Both not that fast (I think?)
Dribbling: Kluivert
Headers: Kluivert
Finishing: Trezeguet
Passing: Both don't really pass
Crossing: As above
Strength: Kluivert
Consistency: Trezeguet
Selfishness: Trez is slightly less selfish

ok but I really don't see how he would fail..looking forward to your explanation !
In Holland, strikers grow up in luxury. It's OK if you miss a couple of chances because there will be about a dozen more.
Defences are weak and the entire team comes up behind you for support when in ball posession and on the attack.

In Italy, you may only get one or two shots and you have to score at least one goal. This is where most Dutch strikers fail. If you watch a couple of matches with players such as Kluivert, you'll see that they need more chances to score than players like Trezeguet or Vieri.

I believe this is the reason that Kluivert has failed before in Serie A and would fail again. With the few exceptions to confirm the rule, most Dutch strikers and forwards could never and still can't make it in Italy.

This reason is also part of the goal-scoring problem with the Dutch NT but that's another topic.

Kluivert is IMO the more complete player. His dribbling is definetely better than Trezeguet's, he's better in the air and stronger too, but for Juve I prefer Trez. We don't really need Kluivert's skills because we have DP, Neddy, Camo, Zambro and Davids for that, and Trez is the better finisher. Apart from this, I think that the most important thing is that Kluivert failed in Italy with Milan whereas Trez has proved himself in Italy and flourished beautifully last season.
