And finally, forgot to add this:
Sure we had the misfortune to have had a taste of the depth of hell in Serie B twice and that is the main and sole weapon our Cugini have against us. However, its during the bad times that true fans are seen. While we were in Sere B, we managed to pull an average of 50-60 fans in Serie B while Inter rarely managed to pull in 40 and in A. Who can forget the 80+ thousands fans for an obscure and unfamous Milan-Cavese? Or who can forget the Milan fans cheering the dreadful and loved Egidio sending a penalty kick to the moon while the Milan fans cheered him as if he had scored a Van Bastenian goal? We Milan fans are a special bunch. Faitful and always behind our team is like a middle name to us!

Not like other team's so called fans who dissappear as soon as the times get tough or who start to boo and insult their own player after a missed pass or mis controlled control? Or those who label a champion non da Inter after 1 game...

No matter how many times these Cugini would ressort to their only miserable weapon of Serie B, just know that until one has not had a taste of hell or true failure, one would not be able to truly understand what it means to succeed and makes success even more sweeter than ever.

It's better to fail once in a while to rebound and go higher than ever before than being always confined to a constant and never changing state of mediocrity, sufferings and humiliations.

MILAN, GRAZIE DI ESISTERE!!!

Cheers.

I wanted to put this too, but not enough space. Great one!!!:thmbup:

Even the ESPN commentators started to almost indirectly say that Juve would definitely win the PKs. Everyone around me were confident (majority being Gobbi) but I knew deep down that Dida was and always been a penalty specialist. Just ask a certain Martin Palermo who had 3 penalties stopped by Dida during one single match!!!:eekani:

FORZA DIDA!!!

Gianni Rivera is still considered by many the best Italian living player It's the reason why so many italians became rossoneri, his football was elegance combined with fast thinking His "passaggio filtrante" (assist) was his main asset I've yet to see a assist man like him He's been often been parralled with Platini IMO he was better, one reason is that Gianni played till 36 years old, Platini retired much younger, and Gianni won a CL at the age of 20 :eekani: not as a bench warmer but as a regular first team player He always knew who to give the ball to even before he received it Yes I was their in San Siro in 1979 when he picked up the microphone prior to Milan Vs Bologna telling fans to calm down (it didn't happen in Roma Vs Lazio), it was his last match, the match of La Stella
What a player

Nereo Rocco, the man that guided us twice (1963-1969) in winning the CL For him all his players were like his sons One anedoct, in arriving in San Siro foer a derby, he told the players that were looking a bit tense: "Who's scared?" then he pretended to faint He is one of the great Italian trainers of alltimes All players loved him, you will never find a single interview of a player saying something against him

Pierino "La Peste" Prati 3 goals in a CL is indeed something What about if I tell you that he scored 3 goals in a derby too and they were the first 3 goals conceeded by our Cugini till then He was an icon among milanisti in the late 60's early 70's.

--------------------------------------------------------

101) During the tennis match if you carefully view the replay of Serginho's goal, you will see ann Interista screaming out of his lungs "BASTA" (ENOUGH)

102) Tennis match again Having an Interista invade the pitch, reaching Billy Costacurta and not trying to hit him, but asking him to have mercy in other words "Please take it easy" Priceless I'm not making it up, they even INTERviewed him after he was taken to custody

I remember that incident of the fan invasion during the Tennis Match.
But I didn't know about the Interista screaming "basta".... Will have to check that out tonight when I get home...

3 goals for Pierino in a derby? That elevates him to the status of Saint in my books! San Pierino!

Nereo Rocco, despite not being born during his time, the more I learn about him, the more I admire him. I really love him. I wish I was born at his time. Truly a true man as they rarely exist nowadays. Btw, what is the best book on Il Paron? I have ordered La Leggenda del Paron, 2002. Is that a good one?

Keep those great anecdotes comming!!!!
Cheers.

Now that your masterpiece of a thread is finished I second Diavolo's opinion that this thread should be made a sticky coz for a Milan fan it is brilliant memories!

Secondly you should delete ALL other posts in this thread and just merge those three/four posts so that the 100 is one big post. Then close the thread and keep it as a sticky. It is one for the ages.

Brilliant work!

I certainly agree that it's a Masterpiece and that it should be made a sticy
On closing the thread I respecfully disagree Why impose limits For example Haroon, why don't you post some in yourself Furthermore, even if the upcoming future looks doom for us we may still have some minor achievement to cheer about

Presidente,

I didn't mean to close it forever. I should've explained my stance there. My mistake. In order to respect the title of the thread and preserve its beauty only posts which are topic related should be added by Payman one by one. We can continue this thread here but the sticky thread should preserve the passion and effort that Payman has put into it with the additional posts by other members also reflecting that same thing instead of it being dragged off topic. Kind of like our anecdotes thread

103) Even though it was Inter Vs Milan, I managed some how to watch the Tennis match live I was seated among our cugini, It was a day I'll never forget, after the fourth goal, I even pretended to be sorry for them (cause some of the cugini were "friends of mine" and they gave me the ticket) but "inside" I was "exploding" hoping for more to come:dielaugh: More came The aftermath was real comedy time, the very best you can experience I was pretending even more to be sorry for "them", saying things like "It was all Tardelli's fault", "Recoba is not a gicatore da Inter" (whatever that means) etc. The day after everything was back to normal :dielaugh:

Here's one for starters:

105) It was a historic day in Manchester for Paolo Maldini. Maldini leading out a Milan side that was a step away from clinching club competition's greatest prize against our greatest local rivals in the form of Juventus FC. 40 Years earlier his father had lifted the ECC on English soil. Could his son make history? The greatest memory for me in that final that just overwhelmed me was AFTER Milan had won the trophy. The adrenaline moment was Sheva's penalty going in forcing me and my friends to wake up the house and the neighbours in the wee hours of the morning But the moment that gave me goosebumps and filled me with immense satisfaction was Maldini's close-up (before trophy presentation). His eyes closed and hands together and looking up to the heavens. It was the the look of not only a leader of Italy's most successful club Internationally but of a man representing his club's colours in club football's biggest game and a son emulating his father. The look of a man who at that precise moment personified fullfilment, satisfaction, relief and joy in ONE CAMERA SHOT after coming so close in WC '94 and Euro 2000. It was a very powerful moment of photography! What a proud moment it was for him on a personal and human level to repeat something that had been done by his father. This sort of thing happens in Milan only. It is a tradition carried on from generation to generation.

104) No bull$hit Sometime in 1986 (can't remember the exact date)
Mediaset Studio #7, Cologno Monzese (Milano). Zio Silvio at the time every now and then, would come by yhe TV studios, anyway on that particular day after the recording of a show, enters the studio at 1 in the morning, calls all the boys working in the studio, and out of the blue asks "Who's Interista?". All the cugini in the studio raised their arm. He then asked "Who's Juventino?", only 2 were, and rose their arm. He then literally said "Vi do una brutta notizia, ho appena comprato il Milan" (I have bad news for you, I've just baught Milan) He then told all of us, Milan's first new signing (Dario Bonetti from Roma). We all knew a new Era was about to begin It did I swear that this story is true We were proud to be back in "buisness", and we were the first to know.

108) Despite being mocked, cursed at and hurt by the Roma fans during our decisive game our own warrior Dida didn't back down from anything or anyone and continued to play the game looking fearless. There's no doubt on my mind there's no keeper I'd rather have defending my team, not even Gigi Buffon come to think of it.

109) Blessed enough to be such a traditional club with a rich history of having talented players, to have the opportunity of watching so many geniuses throughout the years at Milan. From the Altafini and Schiaffino duo to the Gri-No-Li trio, to Rivera, to the Dutch trio of Gullit, Van Basten and Rjkaard. The list can go on and on....GRAZIE BERLUSCONI!

Proud supporter of the most hated national team in international football!

When George Weah signed from PSG - two of my Juventino friends - bitter Milan haters said - "The Scudetto is yours".
And Juventus were the defending champions at that time.

Milan 17 scudettos 7 Champion Leagues.
That is 2.4 Italian Championships for every European success.

Juventus 27 scudettos 2 Champions league.
That is 13.5 championships for every European success.

Clearly Milan has the better Italy/Europe ratio

ON THE ROAD TO 18 and 8
