How many times have they played together? Today was only Stam's 6th Milan game.

Best left and right back in the world, best central defender overall and the best defender in pure defensive skills (manmarking, tackling, aerial game) in one lineup.

Talking about them in that order: Maldini, Cafu, Nesta, Stam.
Some will disagree on what I said on Stam, but I stand by that. Watch the Milan-Barca game and you'll see that RIGHT now he is what I said.

Stam and Nesta are what in Italy we define "players that settle one zone of the team alone"

yep agree on that.
Stam and Nesta could play defense all on their own.
Hector Cuper said this explicitly on Nesta once.

That will be sth. My expectations are so hight to see these 4 in regular playing time, that ultimately I eill be dissappointed.

Nice to see Stam back.

IIRC only 3 times

Milan - Lazio (Italian Super Cup)
Milan - Livorno (Serie A)
Milan - Barcelona (Champion's League)

Any more?

The best defence we've had since "The Ministry of Defence" :stuckup:

Its amazing that two of teh MoD guys are still playing with us. What a team that was, what a generation, what players!!!!! :proud:

This one has the opportunity to match them in so many ways. And match them in a more compatative, more brutal and more crue world out there. One more CL

Man by man, this defence is superior to the "ministry" one. They don't have Rijkaard in fornt of them though.

Il Genio, the Ministry or rather as it's called in Italy, the most famous quintet after the Beattles, or The Beatles of Football is missing one crucial member!

Him :devil: Super Seba :devil: :stuckup:

The Defence of :star::devil: Gli Invincibili :star::devil: The Best Ever Defence to Ever Grace This Planet!:stuckup:




As to Stam, Maldini and Nesta, they've indeed only played 3 games so far as mentioned rightly by Il Genio. :thmbup:

Hopefully these 3 along Il Pendolino can play and be healthy for the rest of the season and as the ysay in Italy, we will have some great satisfactions!:stuckup::happy: :star:

Cheers.;)

Are u kidding? ;)

He was the malus send to our team by the football gods to make it at least a bit fairer for the other teams, to give the opponent a chance to at leasts score a goal every now and then against this unbelievable defense.

Tassotti/Costacurta/Baresi/Maldini at their peak in front of a Dida of the last two seasons and we would have probably finished two seasons in a row with conceeding. :tongue:

Sorry but Seba was a great keeper. Not many Goalkeeper would have regain his place in the squad as many times as he did. I think that should be respected!
I cannot even remember him making a blunder! But Dida is the better goalkeeper!
