Interesting thing about big guns in Italian football:
*Inter celebrates scudetto
*Milan celebrates CL win
*Roma celebrates Coppa Italia
*Juventini celebrate Serie B title
*Torino celebrated survival
*Laziali semicelebrated Inter's title as well as their arrival to Europe.
*Napoli and Genoa probably will celebrate arrival to top league again
*And you can add up the Italian win in WC which was celebrated together.

For some of them a celebration is said too much but when you think of it, the emotions are mostly positive for the fans and only regrets are when you look at your rival's achievements.

I forgot to add Fiorentina celebrating the return to euro fields. Football Italia focuses on the victories as well.

I think all the teams u mention can be happy, except Fiorentina, who made a great season but with 15 points reductions, and now they need to sell Toni to Bayern cause they don't have enogh money.... it's sad.

It's not cause they don't have enough money it's because Toni wants to leave. Toni didn't want to go to Inter either and we have money. He wants the 5.5 million a season bayern are willing to give him which no one else in europe is willing to give him.

I don't think selling him was a bad move. He's certainly not getting any younger and they cashed in on him while they still could.
I think this might turn out to be a great move as did the Batistuta sale, who only had 1 more good season left when they sold him.

I listened 13 million euros to Fiorentina for Toni, i don't know if it's a good deal, last summer any team would give 24, that's what i don't like about the deal, i hope Pazzini and Mutu can continue in form, they also have Reginaldo and Lupoli, and let's see if they get someone.

The transfer reminds me of the one Bayern made with Makaay, 2 great season and over.

I would take any striker who can guarantee goals for 2 seasons for free. They just have to pay wages which they would have paid anyway.

Alex, Toni was adamant that he should leave last year, but we all saw that it all suddenly changed when he and Dell Valle (spelling) had a meeting.

I am sure (and I have read that) that it was agreed on that meeting that they would let him go if he helps them stay this year. He helped them stay, so they have to let him go. It doesn't have anything to do with money, sure, they would have made more money last year, but for them survival was more important than anything.

Good move from both sides and I am sure Pazzini (and if they sign Vieri) will fill Toni's shoes.

Toni isn't the smartest footballer I see. Going to a new country, now in his 30's to play for a team that's in the same European competition as his old team. The only thing he's got going for him is his chance to win the Bundesliga with Bayern.

Still a bizarre move considering the options he had a year before.

Like I explained before the team and competition wasn't important for toni it was the wage Bayern are willing to pay him more than anybody else thats why he is going to bayern.

he will earn5.5 million euros a year...no other club in the whole wide world would have offered him that.

plus with the crap bundesliga is, he will probably end up with 30 goals next season.

Surely the money factor had a BIG say in his move. I’m just glad that he went to Bayern otherwise we had to put up with his name being associated with us for another 3 months. Good player, but not needed in our squad. Also as Mehdi said he should “easily” be able to score a few more than he is used to in Serie A – specially if he doesn’t get injured.

He went to Bayern out of respect to Fiorentina from what I heard and the price he was sold was exactly 11 million its a good thing Viola cashed in on him because now he is easily replaced by Pazzini who is young and very talented.

I don't think so. He was only there 2 seasons. And from following Toni's career I just don't see him thinking of what the viola fans wanted. toni is the new bobo vieri. He was looking out for numero uno and how Luca Toni can get the best for Luca Toni. And 5.5 million a season was whats best for Mister Toni. I don't see him as the sentimental type.

I agree with Stefan. 5.5mill Euros is a huge wage. No one else was gonna pay Toni this much. He made the move for pure monetary reasons, and then gave in a crap about how he was doing it out of respect for Fiorentina.

I am betting on Bayern to win Budesliga next season. Bwin have odds of 1.8:1 on them. Not great odds, but I am pretty confident that Bayern will win it next season.

Spot on..

if he cared about any fans, he wouldn't have left Palermo in the first place..where they really treated him like a god.

So now Rocchi wants - nicely - a pay raise from Lazio for his good season.

I bet if a team tells a player that they will pay him less next year because he didn't play well, all agents and players will come out whining and crying foul.

It's funny, slowly and slowly some fans would want some players not to play exceptional in a season because that will mean pay-raise demands and possible sale etc, how ironic!

Rocchi has been immense for Lazio in past 3 years, he definately deserves a raise. And a big one tbh.
