The Run of Play is a blog about
the wonder and terror of soccer.
We left the window open during a match in October 2007 and a strange wind blew into the room.
Now we walk the forgotten byways of football with a lonely tread, searching for the beautiful, the bewildering, the haunting, and the absurd.
The Telegraph is reporting that France Football is reporting that Frank Lampard has signed a four-year contract with Inter Milan. And they are. I have seen them reporting this. As proof, I can tell you that Lampard is apparently set to draw un salaire annuel de 7,3 ME, and also that the ancien coach des Blues, José Mourinho, has his eye on another of his protégés londoniens. But where Drogba is in all this remains a mystery.
This should be interesting. I like Lampard, and it’d be fun to have a high-profile English player in another European league. I just hope that clown Ibrahimović doesn’t get in the way of any of his 45-yard shots.
