Official: Christian Abbiati Thread
 
Well, if Abbiati had his own thread at one point, I can't find it anywhere, so I'll just start a new one. This can be Stickied at any time.

To start things off, here's a recent interview (in Italian) on Goal.com.

Jasper 28-07-2008 07:36

Good riddance. We have like 20 threads with his name but I guess all of them, are pre 'official' era. Don't see a need to merge all them too.

ABBIATI: 'Soddisfatto della mia prestazione'
29/07/2008
MILANO - Queste le dichiarazioni rilasciate da Christian Abbiati al termine del 'Trofeo Tim': "Sono soddisfatto della mia prestazione anche se comunque un po' è stata anche fortuna. Sono contento dei complimenti che mi ha fatto il mister, ma credo che il posto da titolare si deciderà nel corso della preparazione."

acmilan.com

Looks like Abbiati believes that the first choice keeper will be decided in the upcoming weeks.

He took a big step in putting Kalac into his place. His performance in that game was quite outstanding... he's alert and athletic. He's pretty mobile too... Kalac is good, but not very fast.

Abbiati was musturd against Inter.
Great reactions, personally (and not just because of the performance against Inter) I don't know why we let him go in the first place :conf:

Diavolo_7 30-07-2008 16:26

Not to put too much weight in a 45-minute preseason performance but I think Abbiati was the best GK on the squad even before the TIM Cup games. If the performances in training are going anything like what we saw yesterday, I expect Abbiati to be between the posts come August 31 or soon thereafter.

Calcio Debate: Who Should Be Milan’s No.1?
Milan have three experienced goalkeepers in their squad for the coming season, in the form of Zeljko Kalac, Christian Abbiati and Nelson Dida, but neither of them particularly stand out as a cut above the rest. So who deserves to be Milan’s No.1?

I didn't know in which player thread to post this in so I'll just post it in this one.

That's not entirely difficult in any regard.

Jivara 31-07-2008 02:37

i want to see how dida performs to make a fair judgement but so far i like what i see from christian, i hope he keeps his good form and gives us certainty when our defence messes up

Az. 31-07-2008 12:14

....


“This year Milan has a very good team and we must just prove this on the pitch. We must find the right condition to be in form as soon as possible and start the season well.”

@Jasper
agree..you're the boss haha....


I dont understand...which part of Kalac is better than Abbiati's ? ;)

C'mon Abbiati..im counting in u :D

Gattuso #8 31-07-2008 15:54

to be honest I was really suprised by abbiati, he's much more safer than kalac

Maldini&Inzaghi 31-07-2008 16:10

Still to early yet to make a choice.... I think the tournament in Russia would be the best stage for all of them and pass judgement then.

Abbiati did look good for the time he was in. The best in the TIM

Kalac looked horrible on those two goals. I mean the effort was just ridiculous. He didnt even look like he was really trying to stop them. Not that it would be easy but shit make it look like your putting more of an effort into it.

Cristina 31-07-2008 18:53

I'd really like to see an Abbiati/Dida rotation in the Railways Cup.

On that note, here's an article from milannews.it that claims Abbiati will be our number one:
http://www.milannews.it/?action=read&idnotizia=2223

Interesting read.

MaldiniISgod 31-07-2008 21:25

Wasn't he the 2nd best goalie in Spain last season? If so I'd think he'd be the obvious choice for #1... don't see what all the fuss is about.

In terms of what? Goals conceded?

ANCELOTTI, Elogi per Abbiati
02.08.2008

Carlo Ancelotti non ha visto un brutto Milan nel ko 1-0 contro il Siviglia: "Nonostante il risultato sono comunque soddisfatto della prestazione della squadra - ha detto il tecnico rossonero -. La partita e' stata viziata da un episodio sfortunato di Gattuso, ma questo puo' capitare. Ho visto, comunque, una buona intensita'. Queste partite con avversari internazionali di un certo livello non sono semplici amichevoli, ma gare piu' difficili. La prestazione di Abbiati mi ha soddisfatto molto e cosi' anche l'esordio di Maldini perche' si e' mosso bene in campo".

Well.. apparently, it seems like Abbiati's position as our number one is his to lose.

superpato 03-08-2008 12:32

abbiati maDE some crazy saves vs inter but dida willl start against city next week so if he has a performance to remember its a staright shot who to pick,im backing abbiati to get the call but i wish dida did

kaka rox 05-08-2008 10:33
