It's almost official as reported on tv repeatedly in the last couple of hours
Forza Milan :heart:
Forza Milan :heart:
if true - its a great day for our club.
Dae you could be all well a right, but 3 players come to my mind, RVN, Crespo and Pippo, all rated as pensioners not that long ago. Obviously I could list a number of players that never returned to greatness. Anyway, in the morning well see if the speculation is true.Come on, you cannot be this big a pollyanna jackass (pollyanna being some character who saw everything as rosy and great). You and I go way back and you have my respect and friendship, but jesus, shut the f*ck up. Milan looking at Dinho and Sheva for answers is f*cking pathetic. Dinho appears to be past it given his form the last two years AND the recent Olympics and Sheva has not done a damn thing for two years but wallow in obscurity. Yes, both could possibly refind form and be brilliant moves and for me, I loved Sheva even with his ill-advised move to Chelsea (I never bought into the traitor bullsh*t) but seriously, is the best Milan can do is bring back a guy who has barely done a f*cking thing in two years and another guy who clearly was losing form the last two years and clearly has not found his old form yet (if ever).
THIS IS NOT THE MILAN I FELL IN LOVE WITH and surely not the Milan I wake up every weekend to spend my hours watching and talking about. This is goddamn embarassing.
That said, here's to believing in our management and hoping they did their homework and this is not simply Berlu bringing back his "son" and bringing in a guy he wanted years ago when he was the best on the planet.

Yes, but none of those guys lost their game and the skills that made them what they were. Milan seems to be looking towards players who have lost form and cannot do what they once did and apparently are hoping for answers there. Is this really what we are reduced to? Its sad? Is this club so unattractive an option for the elite players that we have to go after players down on their luck or out of form or both?
Crespo and Pippo simply are players who at times have not been appreciated and thought to be uesless; but they could still do what they were good at. They just needed a chance. Dinho has shown he cannot do what he used to do and who the hell kjnows with Sheva; he never plays? Perhaps with him he still can be a penalty area presence. Who knows? He's played so little it is hard to tell, but with Ronnie the evidence is right there.
I just cannot believe this is what Milan chosses to make its transfer targets. Its almost MLS.
...but for Gullit, Baggio, Lentini, Papin, Nesta and Rui Costa, Milan has hardly ever broken the bank in the last 20 seasons.That alleviates my concerns about money, but does nothing about my feelings that this club cannot apparently compete for meaningful transfers.
Technically it was not a Bosman but Milan payed Ajax a 1MLN Euros compenation fee established by UEFA regulations. Van Basten had just won the Cup Winners Cup.I'm not looking to spend Inter-esque or Chelsea style money; just make moves that make sense. I'd like to see Milan do some homework and find players that are rising and fit our system like they did with Sheva the first time and then win the transfer. not look for answers in players who aren't playing well at all and who could maybe help the team or maybe not. I never thought of our team as a maybe maybe not kind of club.
The Flamini move was great and so was Pato as other teams had interest and we did our homeowrk and then beat other clubs to the punch. I like that sort of thing and would like to see more. Its what we used to do.
Oh, btw, Van Basten was 7 years prior to Bosman. WE got him for a palrty 1.5 because Silvio watched some video of him, liked what he saw and said get him! I love that. That is so much different that going after a retread Sheva or Dinho just because they used to be really f*cking good.
