ItalyGermany4to3. A Milanista game, if we count from the Schnellinger goal to that of Rivera. But a crazy game anyway.
Karl-Heinz Schnellinger, one goal in all his Milan career, did only one with Germany. He entered the penalty area for the first time: Inter and Italy 's captain back then, Facchetti, knew it. "What were you doing here?" And "Carlo" meekly answered " I was going to the dressing room, to avoid journalists..." And the German dressing room was BEHIND Albertosi's goalpost! The ball simply came to him, he didn't look for the goal!

He scores ("if I failed they'd eat me at home!") and a rain of reactions come from the Italian side. He recalls two: the stupefied question of Rosato: "Carlo but did you have to do it NOW?" and Rivera's tongue-in-cheek menace "I'll wait for you at Milano!" Both his teammates back home. But without that goal from "the Rock", there would have been no epic!

I close with a Chilean punch. At the Chilean WC 1962, Italy met Chile and lost (with ref's help)
Mario David received a Leonel Sánchez punch while fighting for a ball. Later Milan contacted Sanchez for a test. He's almost in Milan, he gets a room with... David! Shakehands, compliments, excuses, all forgotten. But then Universidad de Chile, his club, disageed with the payment and Sanchez stayed at home. The first Chilean ever to play at Milan didn't even debut in more than a friendly.

Every energy, smile, blink, inbreath, heartbeat skip, gesture of longing in my life comes from you,Toro!

The stars are the eyes of all our beloved and departed fellow Granata, reflecting their love upon their kin... us.

Anyway, it was just a little mistake... just to appear a little less smart than you really are, Payman

Piero Pirelli built San Siro on 1926... (retouched many times, once in 1955 then slowly till Italy 90, that left it as it is now) One of the first presidents, manager for almost 30 years. The first one to understand that Milan had to jump forward searching economical and sportive independence.
Now, his surname is stuck in the shirts of those Interistas!! :depress:

Well Shevagirl,
The answer to your first question is Giuseppe Farina, one of the most infamous Milan presidents ever, the one who almost made Milan go bankcrupt. You made me laugh when you said "Flour"!!! It's true that if you translate "Farina" to English, it is "Flour" but a name isn't translatable or is it?

For your 2nd question, from what I know is that the 2nd time around, there was a rift between the players and the coach and the players couldn't stand the coach so much that it degenerated. The players performed bad in order to have the coach fired!!! :fero: The Milan president, I believe Farina didn't do anything he reacted to late. When the players got their wishes, to have the coach fired, with the new coach, they started playing up to their potential and despite their late run, it was too late. The damage had been done and Milan had to face the humiliation of going down to Serie B because of a bunch of players who didn't understand what it is to play for Milan and were definitely not worthy of the legendary Milan jersey and or colors... :fero: It still puzzles me to this day, how can a group of professional players sabotage their own team like that. When the team went down, most of these mercenaries left Milan to play in other Serie A teams except a few rare players who had the love of the jersey and of Milan in them and knew what Milan represent and stayed. Among them, a certain young Franco Baresi who was at that time, already the Captain of Milan...

That's what I know. It may or not be accurate. To be exact, let us wait for the expert by excellence, Signora Lorena to enligthen us. Lorena, a toi de jouer!

P.S. There's a relatively famous rumour going on saying that when Milan went down the 2nd time because of the players' sabotage against their coach, a few of these mercenaries were rightfully and deservedly beaten up by the Milan fans at the end of the season. Any truth to that Lorena?

Ehrm... don't put so much pressure on me Payman boy -_-

I recall Fulvio Collovati receiving a stone in a game at Como (the 14th, lost by 0-2)... he was hated because of his 'lack of courage'. That year Baresi played a handful of games, because he was severely damaged by a blood infection that almost killed him.

Luigi Radice, Milan player of the 1960's, was the coach. He was nicknamed 'il tedesco' (the German) because he was stubborn and strict. With Torino he became champion in 1975, but at Milan he was told that the squad was bourgoise and lazy, so he started with harsh training. Joe Jordan and Walter Novellino, for example, were damaged: the Brazilian was destroyed by tiredness, the Shark didn't reach his true level but after the Radice era.

Well, Payman, on the 1st relegation, people that were heroes in the scudetto, like Albertosi, sold their performances to a bunch of mobsters that arranged games :fero: that, for me, is pure treason!!!

Anyway, on the 2nd one, when Napoli-Genoa played at Napoli, a draw would secure Genoa in serie A and Milan'd go down. Strangely, 5 minutes to the end, Genoa lost 2-1 and then, strangely, Faccenda did the goal with all the defense standing cold before him!! That goal (Milan won his game at Cesena) left Milan in serie B for the second time. Not saying it wasn't deserved... but that everything was against Milan back then :depress:

Every energy, smile, blink, inbreath, heartbeat skip, gesture of longing in my life comes from you,Toro!

Radice was replaced by Italo Galbiati, one of the youth trainers back then and in charge of the Primavera.

Morazzoni was a 'bridge' president, and farina was contacted by colombo, the president that was ruled out by the precedent relegation... :depress: :fero:

Here's a fabulous homage from the January issue of Forza Milan! on San Paolo, by the mithical Carlo Pellegatti. Enjoy is all I can say!

From the snow, ressurected a new Maldini

At 16 and a hafl years old, the current Milan captain debuted in Serie A, convocated surprisingly by Liedholm for the Udinese away game. A lucky start, preceeded by heavy snowing that had paralised Milano for the past 4 days. The swede coach was right from the very beginning:" He has a great tactical intelligence, he can go higher than his dad."

By Carlo Pellegatti.


It all began around 15:40 of this day of January 13th, 1985. Milan are downg 2-0 against Como at the San Siro. Corneliusson, Fusi, Matteoli, Guerrini and the other campagnons had guessed right in the type of shoes to wear on that frozzen and hard pitch, while the Rossoneri looked like slipping like the people on Holliday on Ice or the kids who are scatting on the frozzen lake of Gorky Park in Moscow. At the beginnning of the 2nd half, the temperature plunges below 0C and from the sky, fall a few snow floccons. We leave the stadium disappointed by the rare emotions that the Boys of Liedholm had been able to offer us. "Collo d'accio" (the nickname of Mark Hateley) and "Indiana Jones, the predator of the lost balls" Virdis have not been able to threaten Giulani, the Como keeper. The wisdom of Wilkins and the talent of Verza were not enough to warm the 45,000 die hard Milanisti present in the stands.

The snow increases in intensity. The streets around the stadium are already covered by a white rug. Slowly, very slowly, we get home, with a sigh of relief, we manage to park the car in the garage. Just on time. We won't be able to get the car out of the garage for the next 4 days!Yes, because Milano is covered, at times, suffocating due to the most incredible, longest and most intense snow storm in recent memories. From the grey sky, big floccons of snow are descending, descending, descending. The traffic is blocked. Only the metropolitana (the main highway in Milano) and the trains of Ferrovie Nord are functionning, while the few trams still in circulation are slipping almost too dangerously, almost in such a fashion that they do not seem to disturb the white silence that is envelopping the city. The players manage to reach Milanello only thanks to the bus put in their disposition by the club, that pick the players up each morning at the piazzale Lotto. In the Milan's training grounds, the only thing missing are the Russian Tundra and a few white bears to make it look like the North Pole.

With a lot of difficulty, the Milan ground-keepers manage to "clean-up" a football field of its snow coperture, in order to allow the team to prepare for the weeken'd's fixture at Udine. Since the beginning of the season, a player from the Primavera was training with the first team, a 16 years old kid, with an imposing name. A name that recalls a Champions Cup, won at Wembley, 22 years ago. Maldini. It's Paolo, the son of Cesare, captain of that fantastic Milan that made History. But already, people were only talking in a praising and lauding manner of this kid. His Serie A debut had speculated since October ( of 1984), against Cremonese. Liedholm, had already tried him in a friendly, in Cassano d'Adda and he seemed to be on the verge of setting him for his big debuts with the first team, but it had been postponed. All in all, it seems to be a bad week for the young prodigy. He has a hard time practicing on those frozen and hard surfaces, on the verge of praticability. Catello Cimminio, his roomate of the Primavera, had let him borrow his boots, more appropriate for those frozen fields, but they are too small for Paolino.

Paolo keeps on training despite the unbearable pain on his feet. By friday, the pain has become too difficult to support and his feet have marks that the small shoes had left on them. However, he doesn't say anything and doesn't complain. As it had already happen before, he is convocated among the group of players for the weekend's Serie A match, at Udine. The snow had slowed down a little, but everyone was wondering whether it would snow again? How to reach Udine in these conditions?? Those were some of the questions we had in mind at that time before departing for the game. I can certainly miss the radio coverage of the match, a pleasant habit for me, and I hope, for the Rossoneri tifosi that would remain besides their radio, suffering for the Ragazzi. Fortunately, I have an unforgettable friend, Marco Viazzo, big Milan fan as well that doesn't want to ever miss his sunday appointment with his idols and he doesn't really care about a few inches of snow. He is right as the highway is in excellent conditions and the warmth inside his powerful BMW makes one easily forget that the temperature outside is around 0C.

The stadium in Udine has a full house despite the atmospheric conditions. The Friulans (the people that live in the region of Udine) are huge football fans and the Rossoneri of the area have never let the Ragazzi alone, in all those years. The game starts bad. At th 11th minute, Selvaggi takes advantage of a disattention mistake of the Milan defence and beats Terreneo, the Milan keeper. Liehdolm has to cope with the absence of a lot of first team starters for various reasons and has to bring with him to Udine, 5 players from the Primavera: Turrini, De Solda, Cimmino, Giunta and Maldini. At half-time, the coach comes to Paolo and orders him:" Kid, get ready!". He doesn't realize what is about to happen. Almost mechanically, he starts warming up by running and doing the stretching excercises one does before entering onto the field. Then, when Liedholm asks him: "Do you prefer play on the right or left back position?" Paolo slowly realizes that his big moment has arrived. He enters replacing Battistini and plays on the right of the Milan defence, his role with the Primavera.

In the second half, Milan dominates Udines, and thanks to an intuition from Mark Hateley that anticipates the Udinese defence, manages to tie the game at 1-1. Maldini palys a very solid game, without any mistakes despite the pain at his feet. From this day on, he is the youngest player to ever start for Milan in Serie A and second youngest ever to start in Serie A. Only Gianni Rivera had started earlier than him, at the age of 15 for Alessandria, on June 2nd 1959 during an Alessandria-Inter. The impression of Liedholm is positive. "Despite his young age, he has an already obvious and superior tactical intelligence. He has in front of him a fabulous future. He can equal his dad, and maybe, even surpass his achievements." " He is a complete player" says his dad Cesare. "Both his two feet are excellent, is good at short passing, which is crucial for a defender". The headlines and praises, are all for him, the following week. "It has been amazing receiving all those phone calls of my friends from school congratulating me," his very first comments.

Paolo at that time, frequented the third scientific high-school, "Volta" of Milano, but on that Monday 21, January 1985, he had prefered not going to school, as he had a big test in one of his classes. He didn't want to get a bad grade which would have lowered his academic curriculum, since he had missed the classes on that topic because of his commitments with first the Primavera team and then, the First team. "At the beginning, my name was weighting too much, but I got used to it. I hope to have shown to be worth something. If Liedholm ever needs me, I am ready. Even, very ready!". Not only Liedholm will have needed him, but the Milan of the next 20 years. Very soon, in about a few weeks, he will celebrate the historic milestone of 500 games with the Milan jersey. It all began that week, that rocked Milano and Milan!

Here are the line ups of that Udinese-Milan of Paolino's debut:


Udinese-Milan 1-1
Stadio Friuli, Sunday 20 January 1985.
Udinese: Brini, Galparoli, Cattaneo, Gerolin, Edinho, Tesser, Mauro (Papais dal 74'), Miano, Selvaggi, Criscimanni, Carnevale.

"En su vida, un hombre puede cambiar de mujer, sus opiniones politicas o su religion pero no su equipo de futbol." Eduardo Galeano, Uruguayen poet.
