The $$$ made him forget his lazyness. That always works with those Eastern Europeans. That, or BMW 7 series, preferably in silver (top German 'export product' to Poland before those nasty security locks were introduced).

On the flipside, the money could have only made him even more lazy. Why try when you are rich? Shows the character of the guy. He has been anything but lazy since joining Tottenham. Certainly not in Kuyt's league for hard work, but he's no Mark Viduka.

Credit to the Bundesliga and Leverkusen in particular for letting him go (idiots!), didnt he say he would never have left Leverkusen had they not agreed to sell him?

In my opinion he is on the very cusp of World Class. another season like the one he has had so far would confirm it to me.

Not the Hungarians of the 1950's. the Puskas era. He plays like the galloping magyar himself, a team player with the individual attributes of a Brazilian. They do say the balkan states are the South Americans of europe.

Joking aside, Hungarian footballers these days are not unskilled, far from it infact, they are just lazy and tactically inept

Leverkusen needed the money, that was the main reason for them to sell him. If he had played for Bayern or another financially potent club, the transfer probably wouldn't have happened. The fans loved him, and were not bitter about him moving abroad. If he had moved to Bayern, things might have been different though...

Luka Modric? Croatian isnt he? I dont know much about him but I remember Arsene Wenger was interested in him apparently according to the media.

Any good? I tend to support the Eastern European sides after England as they are usually good to watch and are similar to African sides in that they are usually tactically naive (serbia a great example of that in the WC) which makes them attractive to watch but ultimately unsuccessful

Unfortunately there will never be another Puskas era- Communist Hungary in those days under Soviet rule was very different to what it is now in its socialist/capitalist form - there is simply no money or organisation to Hungarian football. Its in disarray.

Modric is the real deal, he could be leaving his side Dinamo Zagreb in the summer, i wouldn't mind him at Ajax .. Bayern Munich and Werder Bremen have also been interested, according to Croatian newspapers.

He's doing well, but he is seriously starting to become the most hyped/overrated player on the board.

Theres a difference between hyping and admiring. I make no bones about the fact that he is the most entertaining striker to watch in the league since Bergkamp. It seems a lot of people agree.

Besides, no more than her deserves, its been awhile since anyone can say outside of Ronaldo and Drogba this season there has been another genuinely top class individual performing in the premiership this season.

19 goals in 33 games for Spurs = worth they hype

rumour has it that Berbatov is on his way to Juve

although I would love to see him back in the Bundesliga

a French source also had Michael Owen linked with Schalke 05 Laugh

I wonder what Bernd makes of all that

would not mind seeing Beckham at HSV either

Sadly, Berbatov has become nothing more than a flat track bully since he left Spurs.

He has scored a few this season, including 5 against Blackburn (who were frankly awful that day),

but he's not scored a goal against a team in the top 5 this season.

Rooney, on the other hand, scores for fun against Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City and Spurs. ditto Drogba.

Make of that what you will.

By the way - the Bundesliga star Dzeko is really tearing up the Premier League so far. Oh wait..... Laughing

HUUUUUTH

Boateng

JErmaine Jones

Hitz, the HAMMER ?

By my calculations, Torres is doing as well as Podolski this season. Speaking of Podolski, I'm still waiting for him to become the new poster boy of Global football a la Beckham as you predicted back in the day. Something to due to his sheer footballing genius and also his devastating good looks and all round marketability Whistle Laughing

You want a low down on how your German buddies are doing?

- Der Hammer has been a revelation for the Hammers since coming back from injury. Without him, Scott Parker was having to plug all the gaps in their midfield on his own, now they have a strong midfield 3 of Parker, Hitz and Noble which has pretty much turned West Ham around from a relegation side to a decent mid table one. He also thinks the Premier League is a better to be than the Bundesliga:http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard-sport/football/article-23928897-i-lifted-the-title-in-germany-but-im-happier-at-west-ham-says-thomas-hitzlsperger.do. Verdict: A

- Huth must hold the record for least yardage on goals scored this season - not a single one has been outside of the 6 yard box. He fits Stoke's kick and rush style perfectly. I knew he would and have had him scoring me loads of points on fantasy football. He is good at what he does - get his head on the ball. Otherwise, he's like a tree trunk on the ball. Verdict: B

- Boateng : deposed by Micah Richards at right back. No longer a first team regular, but decent squad player. Should move from City. Verdict: C-

- Jermaine Jones: Jermaine who? Verdict: F

Poldi is having a FANTASTIC season, bernd

now that he is captain of Cologne he is on FIRE

obviously, at KÍLN he will NOT be able to become a GLOBAL ICON

Klinsi drove Lukas out of Munich

Heynckes still had 5 games with Poldi and RAVED about him; the coach also said that he would NEVER have let Poldi go

but by that time, Poldi had already agreed to rejoin his home-town-team where he will probably stay for YEARS to come

the lad was at the right place at the WRONG time

----------------

as for Boateng: Mancini PROMISED him he would play in the CENTER, NOT as a full-back

the lad is accordingly pissed off

fish out of water

Hitz: he raves about the ENglish FAN-CULTURE; in Germany, Stuttgart players got DEATH-THREATS after a few poor games

"Scheissmillionńre! " was one of the more harmless insults he had to listen to

players REGULARLY are about to leave a stadium after a game, when a bunch of "fans" block the road "to demand explanations" Smile

and in Germany, the players then DO get OUT Yikes and JUSTIFY themselves

compare that to England, where fans congratulate players on their big cars, even when they play badly, and you understand why England feels like paradise to Hitz

J.Jones: I heard he has featured in the last 7 games when he was not injured

surely he CANNOT be THAT bad

Berbatov is probably the least 'EPL compatible' player there is. No pace, no grit, and most definitely no determination to help out defensively either. Considering that, it's a great achievement to score more than 20 league goals. He is a purists' dream and the antithesis of a 'modern footballer', a dying breed really.

I do like Berbatov a lot as a player, I respect that level of nonchalance, but you are right on that. I think he'd be a better fit to Serie A than anywhere.
