    in all honesty i don't think any of the barca players have a bad word to say about Celtic the fans are always treated well the atmosphere in the stadium is first class and they are always treated with the respect they deserve

    Aye, I'm aware...wish I could track down a DVD of his Celtic days

    Despite his short time at Barcelona, he cemented a legendary status...I still have a Barcelona kit with his name...Wonder what his legacy would've been had he not torn his ACL & meniscus and missed out on so many matches with that team - he's one of those generational players

    If you're a Larson fan then you'll like it.I prefered 'The Bhoy Who Would Be King' though,came out just after he left I think.It only focused on his time at Celtic though,the one you posted would be considered 'definitive'.

    Iniesta is a class act.

    My favorite Spanish/Catalan player.

    It a decent length ?

    Might buy it, only one I've ever bought was John Hartsons 'Celtic Dragon' which wasn't too bad.

    Like a close family member pulling on the Hoops every time he played.

    Total Larsson is a great watch, has every goal he ever scored. I still cant understand how a man of his size scored so many headers. Genius.

    He thought he'd died and gone to hunhell.

    In retrospect I should have worn a nurses uniform, took a bible and a syringe with me and told him to repent his bluenose ways for chance of salvation.

    But I was about 8 years old.

    My grandfather has been going to games since the late 50s/early 60s, and still blindly insists to this day that Henrik is the greatest player to ever pull on the Hoops. Absolute genius.

    The closest thing we have now in terms of a forward who can score goals both domestically and in Europe is Sammy, but he lacks Larsson's consistency and only has a fraction of the ability.

    Henrik Larsson is a Ghod amongst men.

    This is exactly how I feel. I think of him and just get confused or something

    Bring him in as a striker coach or something. Just * bring him back

    That's a brave statement Shane. Jinky was in yer grandad's time. Jinky was the best player I watched followed closely by Henke and Lubo.
