'The depths became deeper and the highlights less and less.'
Honest.

How many players go on playing just for the money and do not really care whether what they can give is not what they used to give before, maybe not even close to it?

I probably would've taken a few more years, but maybe he has other career plans.

He has been crap ever since 2014, so no big loss. Götze should follow his lead.

Having said that they will be immortal for 2014, but that's about it.

Too bad, Benevento signing a WC winner would have been pretty cool. They were linked to Schurrle.

Where is Gotze going btw?

I thought he was rumoured to Italy, like Inter or so. Don't think he will find any big club actually. But you never know, sometimes club bosses surprise you.

Almost any foreign players performs in serie A nowadays, whether they are retirement material or not. If you asked me a foreign player who was 100% a flop in the 80s I could find you a lot of them, if you asked me a foreign player who is 100% a flop nowadays I would have to think about it...

Klose was old when he joined Lazio but did pretty well.

My favourite category of bidoni would be the 1st/2nd gen USSR arrivals.

Zavarov
Aleinikov
Mykhaylychenko
Dobrovolski
Shalimov
Alenichev
Kanchelskis (unlucky with injury)
Simutenkov
Tetradze
Gurenko
Kutuzov

Bunch of cold fish.

Igor Kolyvanov had a decent spell, I guess. And then Sheva...
