Good work Rothose!
Lucic, Leverkusen to Hacken :eek: thats some drop! it's not even like one of the more known Swedish clubs like AIK, IFK, Halmstad, Djurstorms or Malmo.
Doesn't seem to be major activity really, though Nonda to Werder would be interesting. I know some of the Ajax fans here would have prefered him to Charisteas and it'd be interesting to see how the pair do if Nonda indeed gets signed and if Nonda isn't injured as often seems to be the case :(

Shabani Nonda was top-scorer in France 2 years ago. Unfortunately, he seems to be very injury prone, he was out almost the complete last season with a knee injury and still hasn't returned to the level he was 2 years ago.
Imho, a healthy Nonda is a better player than Charisteas. Very fast, technically skilled and deadly in front of the net, he is a player quite similar to Ailton when he is fit.

Bajramovic won't be transferred in the winter break. He was out for almost the complete 1st half of the season due to an injury and is still recovering. Most clubs which are interested in him will look and wait if he can regain the form he had about 1,5 years ago.

We bought him for about 900 k - 1 Mio €. His contract is running until 2009.

;)

Seems u heard it correctly

Trochowski for about 1 Mio or even less sounds like a good deal. If he is just half the talent Bayern fans wanted to make me believe, a very good deal indeed, though I have watched him playing for 90 mins just once in a international U20 match vs Italy where the whole team including him were owned by the azzurri.

I wonder what went wrong with Stuttgart and Bayern. Hoeneß claimed that they were suddenly offering 500,000 less than they arranged at the beginning. Considering the total ammount of the transfer fee (around 1 Mio), it would be indeed quite an insult towards Bayern.

However, I never have believed Hoeneß anyway, even when he said the truth (like Daum taking coke ;) )

Surprise move for Bayern. Liza returns to them for the rest of the season.
Bayern has big problems on their left side, but this transfer is indeed a big surprise.
It now became public that Bayern offered Stuttgart to swap Trochowski and Lahm after they refused to pay the sum Bayern was asking for Trochowski. It seems that Bayern was really desperate in their search for a new left defender, but now everything seems to be fine with Liza....

Excellent choice by Trochowski. The guy is much to talented to sit on the bench. At least at HSV he will (hopefully) get some playing-time.
I've seen him in 3 games about 2 years-ago on the European championship for -19's and ever since I've been really impressed by him. In all 3 games he was by far the best player on the field.

He has like anything you can expect from a modern-day playmaker. Hopefully he can breakthrough. :)

I hope for a Trochowski-breakthrough, too, But i have some doubts, too many young players failed in Hamburg, esp. those players who like Trochowski played for St. Pauli in the past...
