First, you are right. Milan have to find good replacement for Cafu and Maldini, especially Cafu. Since Milan don't play wingers ( none of seedorf-pirlo-gattuso-kaka are wingers), attacking wingback are really important to Milan. Therefore to find a good replacement for Cafu is the highest priority.rapid said:they wont be so awesome next year when cafu and maldini retire tho , there hasnt been much progress for finding their replacements
If there is anything I want Milan to improve, it's our wing play.Andy said:Milan are awesome because they have the best defense, midfield, and attack in the game right now.
Improve the wing play? I don't think you need to do that because everything looks to be fine at the moment. The player you could use to improve the wings would be Jankulovski for left-back instead of Kaladze.Genjuro said:If there is anything I want Milan to improve, it's our wing play.
We lack players who can attack from the wing. Now we heavily rely on Cafu, who is 35 yrs old, in addition , we don't have a good replacement. If Cafu is injured, then it will be a big problem for Milan attacking. In this sense, Cafu is similar to Pirlo, as they are not replaceable in the team.
If I could have one ex-milan player in this Milan team, it would be Roberto Donadoni. Then Milan would be complete.

Good point.barracuda said:I see Jankulowski as Cafu's replacement. No, they do not play on the same wing, but that is really besides the point. Milan playes with 4 defenders, one of which (Cafu right now) pushes forward heavily. If Jankulowski comes, then the focus of the wing attack would simply move from right to left. No team can afford to have both wingbacks be as attacking as Cafu or Roberto Carlos are.
somehow we didn't see the need to replace his "zebinate" at the club. :jester:Andy said:Zebina was a freebee, so no problem here. You could argue that you have not replaced him yet.
But under Scolari, Brazil played with two destroyers in midfield and a 3rd defender in Edmilson, which allows Cafu & Bobby Carlos the freedom to roam forward.Vagabondo said:But didn't Brazil win the 2002 world cup with that exact arrangement :eekani:
i know, point taken. :thmbup:ilgenio said:But under Scolari, Brazil played with two destroyers in midfield and a 3rd defender in Edmilson, which allows Cafu & Bobby Carlos the freedom to roam forward.
At Milan, only Gattuso is the designated destroyer in a diamond shape midfield, and he plays more on the right side as a cover for Cafu when Il Pendolino attacks down the right flank. Having Jankulovski on the left requires another ballwinner in midfield (say Ambrosini), and whenever Milan plays with both Gattuso and Ambrosini, the passing is greatly disrupted :nono:
