Splendid

Help one of France's most-famous teams make the coveted move to the second division, and then grease the wheels on your departure by taking a swing at your club's supporters.

All in all, a pretty good couple of months for the World Cup winner, no?

I'm not sure who's had the worst year, Barthez or Trezeguet. Or perhaps Dhorasoo.

This one sounds like it wasn't Fabien's fault, though -- from other reports it sounds like the "fans" were trying to drag him from his car. And it also sounds like he won't be back. And I really can't blame him. Sigh. Another one who breaks my maternal heart.

(P.S. Did you know he had children?)
