So let's play a game called: How many of these players do you remember/recognize/can still name?
BTW: if anyone knows any of the languages featured during the spoken portions, any chance you can identify what they are?
"I love the kind of speed of the English game but I don’t know what will happen with me, I have a contract until 2012 and we’ll see. What I love is the atmosphere in English stadiums. When we played last year in Manchester it was fantastic. My brother is a big fan of Man U and he always says, ‘Go to Man U, go to Man U’. I say, ‘I can’t, I can’t’ (someone needs to tell him about 'Man U', Manc ladies) Maybe they can swap me for Rooney! (this was said while he was laughing) I watch the English games on TV and I like the Chelsea style at the moment, they’re very strong. For me, in England the fans are better. When the team give their best, they are not booing. It’s more like they are fans more with the heart.”

So ignoring the headlines that took that like "SCHWEINSTEIGER TO CHELSEA" I thought, oh, that's nice. We had been linked to him before like EVERY OTHER PLAYER EVER but he's on the right side of 30, tall, could play our physical game. Hmm...
