Will Martins Work for Newcastle?
It's funny how some players seem to get a lot of attention while others don't. Mateja Kezman got a lot of attention for scoring boatloads of goals while in Holland. Yet when his big move came, he barely did anything for Chelsea in the premeirship. He faired better last year for Atletico Madrid, but still nothing like his time in Holland. We've seen this with others like Martín "El Loco" Palermo, Diego Forlan, Sergei Rebrov and others. Heck, a young Louis Saha scored a lot of goals for the Metz youth team but when Newcastle brought him in, he didn't perform well enough and show enough promise so Metz ended up selling him to Fulham.
I thought of this while reading a post on Blog FC [ http://www.blogfc.com/ ] that was wondering why no big club has bought Miroslav Klose. He scored 25 goals in 26 games for Werder Bremen last year. And this summer he was the top scorer at the World Cup. Why hasn't one of the truely big clubs made a move to buy him? Is Werder Bremen really asking too much? Does Klose not want to move? Or are the big clubs scared they're buying the next Rebrov or Forlan?
