Good morning my friends.  Wow, guys, actually, don’t know whether it is a good morning at all. Ok, I buy it.  It is a good morning for Germany, Lazio, and Sampdoria fans seeing their players getting a historical victory with Germany National team against Brazil with the mega goleada 7-1 in the World Cup Semifinal.    Brazil 1 – 7 Germany   So, today, I prepared my big Cappuccino cup to follow the news.  I totally agree with the headlines praising Germany, especially, Lazio forward Miroslav Klose amazingly at 36 years old  becoming now the most prolific goalscorer in World Cup history scoring 16 goals leaving behind Brazilian forward Ronaldo with 15 goals.   Sampdoria defender Shkodra Mustafi was called up but did not play in this match for injury.

However, let me tell you that the headline really making me forget Italy’s elimination is precisely the one about the ex Italy head coach Cesare Prandelli!!!!!  Why?  Mamma mia, you got to be kidding, I had to double read even inside the news to confirm that it was true, Prandelli actually saying that forward Mario Balotelli is not a champion!  BAM!   Though, wait a minute,  Prandelli must be suffering amnesia!   Was not Prandelli the one insisting so much not only on having Balotelli, but also forming his team around him!!!!!  Sure, now it is too easy to blame Balotelli and saying that he lives in a virtual world….   That’s not all, Prandelli’s declaration saying Fiorentina forward Giuseppe Rossi disappointed him on human level just gave me a headache?? What is Pradelli talking about??!!!! And thinking Prandelli did not call up neither Luca Toni the second top scorer in Serie A nor Rossi…. hello… look at Klose, 36years old and made a difference!!!!

No way!  what’s going on with transfer market?  I am totally upset seeing current Colombia Captain and defender Mario Yepes moving from Atalanta to newly promoted Serie A team “CESENA!” ????? No offense to Cesena, but  come on, Yepes had a great World Cup and still a top defender, rather see him stay with Atalanta or move to a middle team….. maybe the fact of being “38” the obstacle? … oh well..
