Eto`o Has a Dream

Eto`o Has a Dream

Sometimes I wonder just how much fate has a hand in things!

Back in the Allianz Arena, against Bayern Munich, I`m still convinced that whatever Munich were going to throw at us on that marvelous evening that we were going to end up as Champions of Europe.

Now I`m wondering whether fate, via the boots of Samuel Eto`o, might just see us edge out Manchester City and Arsenal for the Premier League title.

With Eto`o only with us until the end of the season, the African striker has something of a habit when it comes to winning league titles, or as the man himself remarks in the media,

"I had the chance to play in Spain - and we won. I had the chance to play in Italy - and we won."

"I hope, thanks to God, I will also win a title in England. Then my career will be complete."


Is it fated to happen?

What I know is that if a classy CF gets consistent service, he will come good. Eto'o is class, and only disrupted by his time in Russia. I think he will come good with continuity.

Eto'o...tis a testament to his greatness that in the last three years combined he made €47 million. And that he still is motivated to complete his own Big League Treble sez alot about the man.

I hope he gets to win the BPL with us.. He's not the same player he was at barza but he's giving his all and he's still quality.

He certainly looks fitter and sharper to when he first arrived. But barring injuries and red cards, so does Nando. It will be interesting to see how these two share the striker duties to the end of the season, and what each contributes. Unfortunately for Ba, as a consequence, he will have to accept being a bit-part player, but that is probably the correct order of things.

if he wins the league with Chelsea then he would be hard to beat in terms of achievement in the continent called Africa, the only trophy missing in his war chest is the world cup!!!!

Sam Eto O and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are cut from the same cloth..older players who have an unrelenting sometimes annoying habit of winning everywhere they go. I do certainly hope that Eto O can complete his unique league title treble by winning a BPL title with us. Zlatans achievement in this regard; winning league titles in Holland, Italy, Spain, and France is the stuff of legend. The fact that at his age he is still the dominant striker in a very competitive ligue that has Falcao and Cavani present is simply incredible. Eto would have probably remained at that level had he not taken the detour to Anzhi but i cant fault him considering all he had achieved before then and how much they were paying him to take a semi retirement job. Players of this ilk; Zlatan, Eto O, Lamps, the Drogs, Clarence Seedoorf and Pippo Inzhagi as examples who were/are able to remain so effective late in the twilight of their careers are rare breeds whose longevity is a combination of special genes and a high level of professional discipline that has seen them take very good care of their bodies and continue to have that drive even when they could rightfully relent after having essentially done it all already. I salute these guys!!!
