07:27 AM ET 09.07 | The Football Association of Wales will speak to Manchester United this week about involving Ryan Giggs in their coaching setup when manager John Toshack quits. Toshack is expected to confirm his departure this week and has recommended Giggs as his successor and the FAW now plan to try to convince the United winger to take on his first coaching role.

Even tho he's Welsh.... BORING.

If he's getting into managing, I'd be more intrigued if Cardiff City were looking to hire him to lead them into the Premiership...

I'm a hater and wished Ben hadn't made that tackle after Jerome coughed it up in the Super Bowl. What a way to end a career that would've been!

Giggsy will make a great manager. The Wales gig for Giggs would be a great place to get his feet wet. A Sir Ryan Giggs coaching Man U down the road just seems right.

Also, wtf is with Dutch players staying hurt? Seriously need to fire their trainers or something. They don't get hurt, they just stay hurt.

Well, considering the Dutch national team trainer has stated that Robben is fit to play as of a month ago, yet the Bayern doctors - best in the business - have ruled him out until at least January, I would say it is safe to say the Dutch national trainers are indeed idiots.

Gotta love players getting hurt for nat team duty! I'd be that **** manager who fights tooth and nail to not release players to their national team. Dawson got hurt, and that really chaps my arse. Robben going down really sucks to see. Obviously he was pretty special for Munchkin last season. That whole deal with him being cleared to play in the cup is rediculous. Is Bayern filing a suit against the clockwork orange?

Serie A crosses 1 Billion Euro in annual player salaries mark. AC Milan has highest wage bill at 130 million euro. In 2006, all of Serie A's wages were at 546 million euro. The lowest wage spending team in Serie A this season is Cesena at 8.3 million. Only about 120 million less than AC Milan.

The pay is catching up to the number of yearly hand gestures, poor challenges, dives and tears shed. Last season that number was 125 million such events.

As opposed to the amount of backhanders that 'Arry Redknapp whisks off to the Bahamas each and every year?

Don't know if you've heard the news, but Brian Laudrup has been diagnosed with a mild form of cancer. We were supposed to have him on the show this week, but learned that it is in the earliest of stages and he has a very treatable form of lymphoma. We've been doing a Danish Dynamite series of late and if you want to hear a legend who's close to Platini, take a listen to the Preben Elkjaer interview ... a wonderful man, lots of stories, reflects on Scirea on the day of his passing 21 years ago and recalls the Scudetto he won with Verona in 1984-85. Elkjaer finished second and third in the European Footballer of The Year awards given to Platini during his days with Juventus.

Let me explain something to you: if it weren't for the super-injunction libel laws in the UK (and Harry has his day coming), he'd be about as reviled in England as Bernie Madoff is in the States. Harry makes SerieA look like petty theft.
