Cafu --> 34
Costacurta-->38
Maldini --> 36
Pancaro --> 33

Oh man, this is an old defence which can only look good against italian teams which don't attack. Will they handle teams like Arsenal and Real. Teams which will keep you busy for 90 minutes???

Yes, age is not important, the technical, physical and mental ability is. you also picked our oldest defenders and added a year here and there to their age... :D

Now come on, the reason why you win or lose a game at this level is much more diverse than this.
Still, I think this defence can handle the attack of teams like Arsenal or Real. It's not a matter of how old you are, it's a matter of how you play, and at that point Milan's 'old' defence has been rather impressive so far.

Let's see it in another way. Real Madrid's defence is a joke. Morientes scored when there were 5 men that were supposed to mark him yesterday. Pavon, Raul Bravo, Borja come on???

Arsenal's defence is decent after that Keown, Adams and co retired. But it's not that fast either.


Age doesn't matter aslong as you can read the game and know where to stand. Maldini is exellent even if he's old. Nesta is the greatest defender in the world and Pancaro and Cafú are not slow considering their age.

thats right, maybe the question should be if Real Madrid can handle ANY attack... Doesn't have to be Ronaldo or Henry caliber.

Plus, Maldini is just class, I'm not impressed with defenders really because i think the offensive game is more interesting but Maldini is so good its hard not to notice... Him and Cafu are still going strong despite age.

Look at this... if Teams try hard enough to attack the 'old' defense. At the same time, they are exposed to the Young Attacking of ac also... they are young enough to do the job.

MALDINI maybe be up there in age, but don't forget he is THE BEST DAMN DEFENDER OF ALL-TIME RIVALLED ONLY BY BECKENBAUER!!!

and NESTA is only 28...and once he retires, he will be mentioned in the same breath as: Moore, Beckenbauer, Baresi, and Maldini (in chronological order).

calcio100 is a madman not an Interista .:D


they are still good even if most are pensioners,but they will not be able to play as high a line against Ronaldo or Henry as they did against Depor.

And I don't think Kolo and Sol will be scoring own goals for them so a 0-0 draw will be perfect for the arse.

P.S. It feels like heaven not having to be annoyed by the mancs for once. Arrogant ****$.

NastyNick how the hell do Arsenal have a slow defence ? Lauren, Campbell, Toure and Ashley Cole is one of the quickest defences round.

It's rumoured that the ref will be Russian;)
