This man is the only positive for Bayern out of this stupid international break. Gets to keep his form and hopefully won't take a pause against Bremen.

And of course after I say this he'll probably get injured or some shit.

The footballing world in general is beginning to think he may be the best striker in the world just now.

From ESPN/FourFourTwo:

"What about his chemistry with other players? Again, it has been difficult to spot a recurring partnership. Whereas Cristiano Ronaldo combines well with Karim Benzema, and where Lionel Messi has Luis Suarez and Neymar, Lewandowski connects with different players. In the last four matches, only once has the Pole received more than six passes from the same player over 90 minutes -- Thiago giving him nine against Dinamo.

In fact, Lewandowski doesn't get that many passes at all. At least not in dangerous positions. Against Mainz and Dortmund he received just six passes inside the penalty area (another was right on the edge.) But here's the thing: four were turned into goals.

The explanation appears to be sheer efficiency. Guardiola has not devised a magic formula in which his striker gets five tap-ins per game. Rather, Lewandowski's movement and finishing have been close to impeccable. Considering that he has attempted 25 shots over his four games, we're talking about a conversion rate close to 50 percent. This is not about chances as such, but any shot or header he might have tried. Even those that were blocked.

Watching the goals, you are treated to a master class in finishing. On eight occasions, Lewandowski has needed just one touch. There are tap-ins, a 20-yard strike, an expert half-volley, an acrobatic full volley, a header, low finishes from crosses, two where he fools the offside trap, one corner, one lob. The variety is stunning. As far as the ideal of a "complete striker" is concerned, Lewandowski seems to be about as close as they come."

And to think Borusse called him a poor finisher... :lol:

To be fair, he kind of was...not, like, poor poor, but he was struggling before. He has only been the Bundesliga top-scorer once and even that was with a rather low tally of goals (20). We can't pretend he didn't miss sitters every other game last season.

But well, who gives a shit now.

Don't get me wrong, Lewy is outstanding, top 3 striker for me, but he is very likely to drop that efficiency quite a bit. I think this is a case of what football analytics calls a reversion to the mean for an unsustainable high conversion rate.

Besides, Sergio Agüero smacked five past Newcastle so obviously he's the world's #3 best player (either him or Luis Suarez). Nevermind Newcastle is 20th in a league currently brimming with greatness.

Re: Robert Lewandowski

Postby FCB general » Tue Oct 13, 2015 2:35 pm

What I see last few weeks is that people have been praising this guy on max. level since he has started to finish almost all of his chances he gets. His goal efficiency in this season changed everything, something which wasn't a standard situation in all previous seasons.

I still remember his previous embarrassing missed chances which were present every 2-3 games. It's easy to forget everything and talk about him as he was always a guy like this one during this season for both club and national side.

If this situation what has been happening in this season becomes Lewy's standard, then we all can say he's finally become truly great striker. His passes, work-rate, presence in every part of the game automatically becomes more valuable when he can do his main job - score goals when those situations come or when he places himself in the latter.

When I read some comments who used to mock on Lewy, they still like to do the same through old jokes, but at the moment when they are talking seriously they all admit he's been doing an amazing job.

This is just a beginning of complete leaving of the previous status of Lewanmisski. There are so many goals to score and many time to pass. The best football years are in front of him and he must look better and better to reach the top and remain there for long.

Ben Lyttleton (Eurosport UK) explains how Robert Lewandowski's game has improved under Pep Guardiola - and why the Pole is now the most feared striker in football.

Even if his conversion rate drops, he's still top 3 in the world. His combination skills, unselfishness, versatility are huge assets to a team like ours. Only Benzema and Suarez could fit us as well as he does. Agüero is a much more limited forward and wouldn't fit.
