Fogot to mention that Mario Stanic played!
He came in for duff in the 73rd minute, this is not his first apperance this season for Chelsea though but the games that he does play are Carling Cup matches which he plays well in.

agree DC,

And 4m Euro's ??? forget it Tottenham!!

We got 6m GBP for Balaban and Kranjcar is way better than him!

The article also say they want Jerko Leko from Dynamo Kiev...

Tottenham is wasting many players too and good example are the two players from the Balkans which they have on thier team, Bunjecevic and Acimovic who they both never use but they are quality players. Bunjecevic ocassionaly comes off the bench but Acimovic never plays. Would be a stupid move for Leko and Kranjcar but the Spurs have been watching both of these players when they were at Dinamo Zagreb. Germany would be the best league for these two to go to. Both at Bayern Munich!

I think Bayern would be great for Jerko Leko, I heard thay have been interested in signing him, ideal place for him, Milan have shown interest to.

As for Kranjcar he should go to a team where he will play regularly, I dont think he wil play much at Tottenham or Arsenal.

I would like to see Kranjcar at Ajax!

umm id like to see Niko in a small top euro club...like perhaps a midtable seria a team where he is given control or leadership role.

i dont think ajax is plausible...they have 2 guys who already are world class studs...the guy who killed scotland and vdv i just dont see where niko would fit in

Prso would be a good replacement for Henrick Larrsson at Celtic who is leaving at the end of the season. Celtic are a huge club that plays in a weaker league. He will get Champions League games in yearly and play in front 55 thousand+ fans at home games.

Peace on Earth

Marko Babic extended his contract with Leverkusen to 2007

Good Leverkusen is a good club and Babic have turned out to a key player for them.

I think this guy should play in the starting ling up for Croatia in Portugal.

I agree that we need to find a spot for Babic in Croatia's starting 11. Niko Kovac could be the player that should make way. I don't think that Babic has had enough opportunties with the national team and hopefully Baric at least gives him those opportunties in the friendly games that will come up.

In other leagues former Hajduk striker Tomsialv Erceg scored two for his club Hapoel Petah Tikva in thier 3-1 win. The other goalscorer was also Croatian! Mario Osibov for NK Zagreb defender.

Zivkovic did not play in Portsmouth's 2-0 loss to Fulham, ever since his bad preformance against ManU he hasn't played a minute for Pompey.

Jerko Leko is suspended for Dinamo Kiev's next CL match. If all the Croatians play tommorow these are the guys to look for:
Mornar (Anderlecht)
R.Kovac (Bayern Munich)
Sablic (Dinamo Kiev)
Prso (Monaco)

Yeah they are both playing well but the sad thing is that both of these players could of been playing in Serie A this season. Budan played for Ancona in Serie B and when they got promoted he was sold to Atatlanta (though the favorites for promotion)
Bjelanovic played well last season for Como/Chievo in Serie A, makes a move to Perugia but gets loaned out to Genoa. Looking at where Perugia is now he could of been helping alot over there.

Champions League

Ivica Mornar Anderlecht - Started and played great! He had some chances and couldn't score but he did set up the only goal of the match. Maybe the best player on the pitch for Anderlecht. They beat Lyon 1-0

Robert Kovac Bayern Munich - Robert played the full 90 minutes in a scoreless draw with Celtic.

Jerko Leko Dinamo Kiev - Was suspended and not in the matchday squad. Dinamo Kiev lost to Lokamotiv 3-2.

Goran Sablic Dinamo Kiev - Played the full 90 minutes and picked up a yellow card. His booking was almost costly as the foul was just outside the box.

Dado Prso Monaco - The game was officiated by Croatian refs but Prso still didn't get any calls. He played 60 minutes in the 1-1 draw with PSV Eindhoven. Prso didn't really do much today.

Best player of all the Croatians who played was Ivica Mornar.
These are the players which will be playing tommorow in the Champions League.
Maric (PAO)
Vranjes, Soldo (Stuttgart)
Runje (Marsielle)
Stanic (Chelsea)
Simic (AC Milan)
Butina (Brugge)

Is Vranjes back from injury yet. He missed out on both playoff matches against Slovenia and I don't think he played for Stuttgart last weekend either.
