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?
    Partially a lot of them are stupid, also because there are far more soft teams in club football and especially in respective leagues so chief can do his usual flat track bullying whatever league he ends up in. It's also possible (I don't know anything about him as a club footballer) Klose isn't a complete mercenary, which would kill his market value needless to say. Then you've also got the fact that a posing halfwit who scores the odd good goal (regardless of who it's against) is far more marketable, guys like Beckham and chief poseur will cost far more because teams will recoup their money from shirt sales and so forth.

    I'd heard that, but didn't Abramovic tell him he wanted him to stay and offer a new deal?

    Right, so everyone else in football is stupid and you're the only one who isn't.

    Yet you still insist he's a better striker than Henry.

    Bah stupid ITV commentator 'nice to see a referee not brandish a card...' after another typical professional foul. This was just after one by Lahm when Camoranesi was just about to get into the box and Lahm made sure he was taken out before he could cut the ball back to someone. Football commentators should be sterilised as soon as they pick up a mike.

    No of course that wasn't dangerous when he stamped down at the ball with all his weight going through on his one airborne foot... just the relative genius of Andy Townsend to listen to now.

    Italy need to get their finger out in this second period of ET, I think we all know who're going to be overwhelming favourites if it goes to penalties...

    Italy have almost as bad a record as England when it comes to penalties, so they'd better hope it doesn't go that far.
