    Utter rubbish.

    I bet you wouldn't find 1 team in the world who would take Ronaldo or Klose ahead of Henry.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    No, if he was for sale, they'd take Henry.

    Everyone except marc has seen how many chief poseur has missed compared to Klose and Ronaldo, chief hasn't done a great deal else but occasionally take his good chances so once you look at it like that instead of being taken in by all the meaningless hype and postulating etc. it's pretty simple who most sides would rather have... Klose first then Ronaldo then chief poseur. These sorts of simple facts aren't at my disposal concerning your two players.
    So, if "most sides" would rather have Klose than Henry, why don't they seek him out? Klose was valued at 10 million or so before the WC, and obviously Henry would command far, far more if he was ever transferred. Klose also had a good WC in 2002, so it's not as though he's just been discovered. All the clubs in Europe just being stupid, I suppose?

    Jose already has Shevchenko and Crespo, and for some reason seems to love Drogba.

    But if Henry were available - him and Shevchenko together doesn't bear thinking about.

    Correction: Has Shevcencko and had Crespo.

    But they sold Eidier to Barcelona (didn't expect that too much), so whether or not they would want another striker to replace Crespo.

    They can have Recoba, he is technically without a club now.

    Has Crespo left for certain then?

    Gudjohnsen had been playing more of a midfield role, the sort of position that Ballack will now take - I think we all know which of those 2 would be better at it!

    Doubt they'd want Recoba, I assume his contract has expired?

    He really wants to go back to Italy (Crespo) so I think it is almost certain he will be there.

    My comment about Recoba was tongue-in-cheek, his contract expired on the 30th of June, so yes he is out of contract. Bolton will probably have a go like they usually do (remember their bid for Rivaldo).

    Looks like Rooney and Ronaldo have made up.

    That's gold.

    I don't know what Rooney's missus might think of this
