With Cambiasso and The crippled one both injured and Javier proving to be better in defence, we're definitely lacking in the CM department.

Appiah's pros are plenty: a free agent, experience in Serie A, international experience, a capable CM who is a good all round footballer, a leader, 27, Sulley's bud..

And we can sign him now if we want to.

amazing... he is 27, captain of Ghana... and....

A FREE AGENT !!!..

It makes common sense.. but with our bloated squad... JimeGol is destined to be a mid here. Mourinho tried that before during preseason.

And Stankovic can be tht DM when needed

Stop mentioning Jimenez for all the wrong reasons, dude. I'm onto you. ;) :D

We've already witnessed Burdisso there, not a comforting scene I tell you that.

See, Jose and Mancio are similar after all.. :D

It was actually weird to see Burdisso there and not Chivu stepping up. That could be an option, if he were not meant to play CB.

I don't know what to say to the whole Appiah thing, but I guess we are talking 1 year, right? Doesn't Dacourt have that 1 year in him?

I guess Jose didn't want to disrupt the defence so he kept Chivu-Cordoba as it is til the end.

I'm Dacourt's biggest fan here but Appiah's a much better player. Someone who not just works hard and is solid defensively but a footballer who can add to our midfield.

Chelsea signed Mineiro (sp?) because of Essien's injury, so it's not like this is a transfer idea I pulled out of my ass :D (well, we're not linked to him to start with..so in a way I did pull it..but you get what I mean.)

Let's all hope Cambiasso's injury is minor though, if not then Appiah would be a good idea imho.

He hasnt played for an year due to injury, but he is still probably fitter then Vieira :D

Honestly Jose and our medical team should take a look at him, if his injury hasnt done too much harm - it should be common sense to sign him.

my friend i believe esteban will be back soon but i dont like appiah, we have many defensive minded players.. it is upsetting to see milan on the verge of signing a creative class player like beckham while we are thinking about the reject of some turkish club
we are the champions and real contender in the cl, roma is a joke and juve luck will run out. we should sign players who play according to this level and high expectation.

Actually he played against Libya, coming on for the injured Essien.

He also played in Ghana's last WCQ, at home against Lesotho. 85 minutes.

Well, both Cambiasso and Gramps are out, and if we take into consideration Stankovic and Dacourt's age and injury history - then we don't have that many players there at all. And Appiah isn't a defensive midfielder, anyway.

Is there a rumour that this could happen? I'd be over the moon for him, he's a great guy who deserves a break like this.

Just be aware that his injury situation was very serious, and he's been through a hell of a lot. Even though physically he's better, mentally he's not in the right place and won't be until he can get some months of football under his belt. If you're having trouble sleeping and are looking for the right pill to knock you out, give this thread a try, I have a few posts in there outlining what he's been through in the last 18-odd months.

You've completely lost all credibilty on this site, with your above comments. Absolutely non-sense, and I don't think your an Inter fan. If anything I think your here to cause ****.

Maicon is one of the best RBs in Europe, and Muntari is holding his own.

Futhermore your second part of your post about being "ugly" could be thought of as being racist. Since both are black. Just an opinion on my part, since like honestly, if you want good looking, buy yourself an issue of playgirl, and you can see all the good looking guys you want.


Goodlooking is not a criteria for a good footballer or not, and should not be brought up when discussing our players as far as I'm concerned. They could be the ugliest player on the planet, as long as they play well, is all I care about.

Say the word, and I will ban him :fero: Appiah untalented? :googly:

Would hate to see him in Inter, but yeah, you need him, would make sense.

We have

Bolzoni, Dacourt, Stankovic, Muntari

JZanetti, Maxwell, Burdisso, Chivu, Chilean-Captain, ALL can play there.

JM did use wingers to be CM in the past. Malouda, JCole for example.

or use 2 Central mids only., since we have so many attackers.

I m not against Appiah, but it wouldnt be so necessary... nor Radoi.

I think you are overrating Appiah a little tbh. Appiah is your typical defensive midfielder, hardworking and loves to get stuck in but really signing him would be a waste as he isn't up to the standard. Dacourt may not be as quick as he used to be but he is tactically and defensively better then Appiah.

Thanks for that. Had no idea about what's been happening to him. Poor guy.
