Hope he'll be a success.
Have only seen him in Euro2012 games, so can anyone explain what kind of a striker is he. Is he a poacher, how good is his first touch and technique etc? Seems to be quite big so I am a bit afraid that he's too similar player to the other Mario we have

Probably Dzeko is a world class poacher, in that segment he's probably better than Mandzo, but... Mandzo has other qualities I mentioned earlier that Dzeko doesn't have and to be honest - to be a 40 mio striker you have to deliver something extra and Dzeko wouldn't deliver anything that Gomez doesn't have... And also, Dzeko is never 3 times better than Mandzo as his price tag suggests... Dzeko would be more of a negative then a positive transfer for us and I'm happy that Shitty insisted on 40 mio or Dzeko insisted on his salary... IMHO it's God's gift for us that it all ended this way...

Now we have 2 strikers that can relieve Gomez, and they are good and solid, and in the second half of the last season we had none - so, yes, this is a good transfer and whatever anybody will say, for us, Mandzo will fit better than Dzeko would...

Mario welcome!
This is pretty much EXACTLY how I feel about this transfer. For 13m and for his massive additional qualities that aren't redundant with Gomez, I think he's definitely a good purchase.

Thanked 1 Time in 1 Post
I make some sense that the "bomb striker" announcement was light, since that would have seriously and directly undermined Gomez.

Then they said they'd bring in a "different" kind of striker. Which brings in Mandzukic. So we have 2 "different" strikers in Gomez and Mandzukic and 1 aging super sub (Pizarro) which would leave "young and failed to impress last season and too much like Gomez"- Nils Petersen on loan.

Welcome to Bayern, Super Mario 2!

Though I don't like this transfer, I always support him here!
Hope he will be another Olic, not Pranjic
