Last year at my team (Parma) was young striker by the name of Davide
Lanzafame, who when picked to play done very well, good on the ball, fast
but prone to being outmuscled easily, well he is now officially on loan to
Juventus for the season and for me I think he will do well if given a good
partner and some minutes!!!

David Lanzafame (Parma) Palermo - Juventus (Loan)

A problem with elder under performance perhaps?
36 - Del Piero
34 - Camoranesi, Legrottaglie
33 - Grosso, Salihamidzic, Manninger, Trezeguet, Storari
32 - Zebina
31 - Iaquinta
30 - Amauri, Poulsen, Grygera

All of whom are first team players, and often play most of the time!!!

Nope, I usually rely on another source for absolute confirmed transfers, but
I will have a gander!!!

A flood I'm expecting too, the teams really have only a few weeks to sign
players if they are to be part of the pre-season, and not too long after
that as most players will become cup tied as all the UEFA competitions
begin, but yeah, I'm becoming unsettled too as there hasn't been much

Particularly as Mark Schwarzer might be on his way to the mighty Gunners,
your take on Mark?

Sometimes a downturn in form at the wrong time can do lasting damage,
especially if someone in front of you in the pecking order has a good
run. See Kirsten/Bierhoff. Also, a bit, the same with Scholl.

Andreas Beck was really strong in the season before last, much less so
last season. I'm not sure about the other two, or why Hummels didn't
get a look. Maybe (as some would argue) it's that BvB players aren't
getting enough respect. Of course, both howedes and Hummels have finite
chances if they really step it up in the next WM cycle.

Yes, I hope it doesn't do any damage.

Torres to Chelsea for 40m pounds.
Ibrahimovic to City but Ibra says only if he's the highest played
player in the world.

Also Yaya Toure is on 160K per week? (not begrudging his riches, I
don't "hate" rich people or footballers, just that it's funny seeing
Yaya making that much compared to other top quality footballers.
That's got to be a top 5 salary no?)
