As for Milan quality, don't get too cocky schumy. :)

No I'm not,I'm just saying not any player can represent Milan and succeed.you have to possess those qualities that really stand out in the big games and prove consistency with your football.

Depends on what you mean by quality. Players like Sheva & Kaka have different qualities to say a Gattuso or Ambrosini. So long every player fights with great pride and honor for the Devilhood with every drop of their blood, sweat, tear, they are more than welcome at Milan :stuckup: :devil: :proud:

We don't know if a Milan player is Milan quality when he joins or starts for us. His performances determine that. :devil:

Usually the first 5 minutes of a players first game in Red&Black :shades: determines wether he's Milan material or not :stuckup: Usually it works out :stuckup:

I think any player with some qualities is good enough to start playing for Milan, no one can tell whether he will be fit for a king or fit for nothing :rollani:

It's so much more than mere quality. IF it was all down to technique and skill, then guys like Kluivert and Davids and Viera and Redondo and even Rui Costa would have worked out better. Its also opportunity and mixing with what we have and having a foundation set up so that new players fit in and are not expected to make the system themselves. That last bit refers to the horrible experiment of 97-98 when we brought in all those players and none of them worked out.

yeah, absolutely correct, but can you tell whether someone will fit in or not?

Not to a 100% accuracy. However, if you acquire players to fill needs and future needs (scouting and grooming talent) then you avoid the splashing of money merely to acquire names for spots that are filled (Rivaldo, Redondo etc..). I'd much rather see us spend 8 million on a Kaka (a player for now and the future and who was not a huge signing) than spending a fortune on players with shorter futures.

But no, in the end, predicting success at your club is often merely crossing your fingers and hoping. However, with a plan and a system and then finding players to fill the needs of the plan you can eliminate a lot of the needless buys and pointless failures.

Kutuzov was an impulse buy. It was not the result of scouting. Teh same thing happens when a team plays some south american club in a pre-season tourney and Diego Rodriguez Simplicio happens to net a really great goal and the manangement decides to buy him for a couple million. Those buys almost NEVER pan out. That's not scouting...it's more a "Me First!!" and buying some one-shot kid before Juventus does.

There is one important aspect of this issue - if s.o. is not Milan quality, doesnt mean in 1 00% of all cases that he wont fit teh team. Best example is Bierhoff. I still think he has never been player for our team, but his goals brought the 99 Scudetto. May be similar is Gatuso - he compensates with hard work and passion.

Gattuso has the workrate that has been essential in the pressing game that Sacchi, Capello and Ancelotti emply. He's totally rossonero.
