Lahm adds scoring to long list of talents

Postby MUTU » Mon Aug 21, 2006 5:42 pm

20.08.2006 The video scoreboard in Bochum showed 65 minutes played when Philipp Lahm suddenly darted forward to the edge of the home penalty area. Willy Sagnol swung over a cross from the right, just a shade too high for Roy Makaay in the middle, but Lahm had stealthily taken up position and collected the ball, shifted his weight to his favoured right foot, and arrowed a drive across the face of goal into the bottom corner for Bayern's second of the day.

Lahm's first goal in his 22nd senior appearance for the club turned out a very important strike indeed, as the score stayed at 2-1 in the Reds' favour to seal a perfect start to the new campaign with maximum points from two matches.

Modesty personified

"It was a stroke of luck I got on the end of Willy's cross," the Germany international declared afterwards. "Normally it's none of my business getting that far forward, and then I was lucky that my shot found its way through six pairs of legs," he continued with an almost embarrassed smile.

After a stellar World Cup for the host nation, the Munich-born youngster rates as one of the biggest names in the German top flight. "Philipp was sensational at the World Cup, one of the truly outstanding players," general manager Uli Hoeneß enthused. Perhaps most astonishingly, Lahm's severely curtailed pre-season appears to have had little or no effect on his fitness, as he pounded away up and down the left flank and won the vast majority of his tackles.

Praise from on high

Hoeneß made no attempt to mask his admiration for the product of the club's highly-developed youth system. "I believe he's had a real boost from the positive experience of the World Cup, and we've gotten ourselves a wonderful player now," the board director declared – a player who now rates goal-scoring among his many attributes.

im gonna have to disagree with you here
talent and performance is what makes a player look good.
but then we are digressing from the topic :?

ok i honestly i think that a player's talent is what makes them a star on the field. im serious now. when it comes rite down to it, you're not gonna get a a win if you are good looking. but i think that a lot of players are really good looking and it's enjoyable to watch them play on many different levels. :D
Bastian Schweinsteiger, Lukas Podolski, and Phillip Lahm are just so darn hot it should be a crime.

the advantage of your line of thought (ie having hot players) is that clubs can always cash in on the marketing of them!

using beckham as the example again, how much money would real mis out on if beckham wasn't so sought after by the media!

That goal was just class. I think just that goal increased his market value by at least 3 million euros.

I think Lahm is the best left back in Europe . Lizarazu was my favorite player , but i don't think we will miss him anymore.

Yes, he's as good as Ashley Cole. However, Cole's character leaves much to be desired... as a full package I prefer Lahm... and Lahm's younger anyway ;)
