Best of luck Tsar.

He used 2 make goals look so easy.
Without dribbling or running – just perfect control + perfect finish & boom -- > goal.
He was also creative since he used 2 pick assists as much as packing goals.

I will tell u 1 story & I hope that my memory serve me well.
Milan were facing a Swedish team with a crazy GK that reached the game without conceding not even 1 goal.
They played & VanBasten scored 4 goals LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL
1 volley + 1 penalty + 1 head 2 head & he got pass him + 1 shot in the upper corner when he was taking off balance but still manage 2 make the shot.

VanBasten was 1 of a kind.
He was perfect & Ronaldo isnt -- > weak header.
I think only Sheva is close 2 his simplicity , CLOSE.
In another word : he was a better version than Sheva. :D

I usually make longs posts, but there's 1 in the Red Star thread that I'm really proud of. I spent long hours watching some old videos, reading articles etc. And there are some in a discussion about Milan 92 season squad. Will try to locate them.

DonippoKakaShevdini 29-04-2007 07:59

I am sure he has outdone this, but nothing but respect is the criticism for this. He and I are about the same age, and always on the same wave-length....;)

And acgaetano was right about the comment that Cruyff made about Milan side, how they culd easily beat us. If you see the goal celebration, you could see it was more than just happiness for scoring but there was the "eat this" and "who's your daddy now?" attitude :D

So it's the combination of winning, beating a very good strong team, the score line, the way Milan played and of course goals from Savicevic and Desailly.

Remember how people went crazy about Cambiasso's goal vs Serbia in the WC? How the ball was passed 20+ time before the goal? Milan's 2nd goal was something like that. Milan players casually trading passes, the ball slowly nearing Barca's defense before Donadoni suddenly zig-zagging through the whole Barca's defense before squaring a pass to Massaro. We had a team like Barca (CL 92 winner who won probably 4 La Liga tittle in a row under Cruyff) hopelessly watching our play! There was nothing they could do to stop us. The victory was considered sweeter than the 4-0 CL 89 win vs Steaua because the game was considered as a mere formality after the way Milan trashed Real Madrid in the semis.

Comment from the coach:
Capello : I considered it as nothing but a win. Milan is so used to winning matches (when he was asked why he was so calmed, hands still folded and not celebrating the goals)

Cruyff : if you want to got hit by a car, might as well got hit by a Ferrari.

Best off the pitch moment :
Baresi wearing a suit, smiling so wide and eyes beaming minutes before the game's over. MvBasten, wearing a lotto jacket, smiling and rubbing his hands in excitement, knowing Milan has beaten the club coached by his mentor.

I still feel emotional remembering the game :proud:

I had asked someone to tell me why the 1994 CL 4-0 victory was supposed to be so special, and that was Gaizka's answer!

Obviously Gaizka can tell you this. Let me summarize the the 1994 European cup final with a quote that occured a day before the final in Athens. The quote comes from the Barcelona coach at that time, the legendary Johan Cruijff.

May 17, 1994

Johan Cruijff:
"The difference between Milan and Barcelona is that Milan have bought Desailly and we have bought Romario. This will be on display for the world tomorrow night."

(A historical footer....Desailly not only shut out Romario, but scored one of Milan's 4 goals in the 4-0 thrashing of a side that won La Liga 4 years in a row and had Romario, Stoichkov, Laudrup, Koeman, Bakero and Gaurdiola in their starting XI. Hagi arrived the following season.)

Johan Cruijff:
"The difference between Milan and Barcelona is that Milan have bought Desailly and we have bought Romario. This will be on display for the world tomorrow night."

Yeah, Desailly was amazing in that game ... probably better than any game him played in WC '98.

Gaizka, Donnie quoting you above reminded me of this post of yours :)

Just last nite I was showing something in my laptop to my cousin and she noticed that there are sooo many Milan-related files there. She just coulnd't understand how I could be so passionate and obsessive about something for the last 17 years (I'm nearly 30). I told her that my favorite music group (Genesis and Gn'R) either stopped recording or broke up and my favorite movie star (De Niro and Al Pacino) are getting old. And it got me seriously thinking.

How could you possibly tell someone that doesn't understand any of these things? How a winning game is enough to make you smile and beaming for 1 whole week? That a losing a game is a bigger concern than an unpaid electricity bills or unfinished project at work? That winning the scudetto could be the only positive thing in a 9 month-stretch of shitty life (that's what I felt for the 99 scudetto)? How you could fall in love with something for more than half your life while the object of desire doesn't even know it?

Is it unrecruited love? Is it unhealthy obsession? Is it passion? I mean, we sometimes could turn our back on our loved ones (I drove my GF early whenever Milan game is on TV every Sunday) out of anger or disappointment. But never this AC Milan team. It's gotta be more than that. What insanity that drove us to that point? What magic or spell?

In the book Fever Pitch (highly recommended for every soccer fan regardless of the team supported) by Nick Hornby (a rabid Arsenal fans), he dedicated the book to (tried to remember the exact words) :

"the fans who sometimes - during a normal conversation or at a serious meeting at work or at any important events in life - found themselves daydreaming and smiling about some right footed match winning goal that went to the top corner some 15 years ago". How true!

Please don't think this post as self-glorifying, like as if I'm trying to proclaim that I'm the biggest fans out there or like I know everything there is to know about the team or about being a fan. I just wrote this because I know you understand what I feel and more importantly because we all have the same love relationship with Milan.

Almost had tears in my eyes that day man :tongue:

So true, all what you said :)

That is the special feature of our beloved team that gets fans everywhere no matter how far...You all represent how fans love MILAN and how MILAN loves YOU all for being this close to us anytime....
I signed the petition..i was the number 2705 and i spreaded this link to all milan fans i know in italy hoping that number will grow more and more...
I wanna say a special Thanx to Kyara and all of them who worked togheter for this petition and a Thanx to all the rest of you that keep supporting our team everyday everytime, it makes me feel PROUD of supporting such a great team like ours, with such great FANS LIKE YOU.
About Sheva, i wanna invite people to don't judge him now, in postive or in negative, now that he's still with us and probably still thinking abt what 2 do....i invite You to just ask him to stay forever with us becouse, there are millions of reasons for him to stay but i just wanna express all this reasons in one....


Giuseppe G.

Ps: sorry for my bad english and for the way i wrote it...but i wrote it just following the flow of emotions i have inside. You all hit me straight in my heart and to all the other italian MILANISTI.....GRAZIE ANCORA

Even though it didn't work, I'm still proud of it :)

Velez Mostar 04-05-2007 00:27

Kyara you really have something to be proud of :)

I myself never signed the petition, from my point of view it's wrong to beg a player to stay when there are millions out there who would've done about anything to play just 90 min's for AC Milan.

I call people like Sheva selfish and a bit arrogant, well we all know what Berlusconi and our management did for him and his father. Sheva's way of handling things surely showed us all that he didn't love our AC Milan, people like us loved him and then he does this to us....:sleep:


Sorry for going off topic, but I felt I was quoting MANY Milanistas when I wrote this above. That Sheva-Chelsea thing surely left many dissapointed, and it was one of the most emotional threads ever on this forum.

Kyara, I have those images on a photo folder dedicated to Milan (sub folder-the fans-).

Classy posts, I gotta take a look back at the Milan-Bayern thread on 2006, when we won 4-1, I don't why I always have in mind there were some good posts there.

No worries. I just wish I could unearth more of your craftsmanship. Throwing modesty out of the forum for a second, I have a few posts I felt proud of after penning, but it seems to me they were many years ago....I would have to dig deep to find them. :D

Okay, back to reality and I am selfless again! :tongue:

However....I think everyone will be able to find some humor in this thread. Mind you, this was years ago, and I was a bit more ruthless in my criticism in these days. I have almost grown up now though. :D

Someone in the "Time to Sell" thread wanted to sell Rino becuase he "wasn't a good attacker". So I let him have it::D

You are absolutely right(lie)! We should sell Rino because he isn't good enough on ATTACKS (lie). The notion of a midfielder playing defense is absurd(lie)!

I suspect the next person you want to get rid of is Dida, because he doesn't score goals like Palop?

Seriously, stop acting like an "expert" on football. I bet all you care about are "Goals, Goals, GOALS!" The basic concept of football can be divided into 4 General groups:
  1. Attacking
  2. Defending
  3. Playmaking
  4. Coaching

Right now, Manure, hate to say it, can outpace anyone. Liverpool can outcatenaccio anyone AND launch a lethal counter at the right time. Chelsea can outmuscle + outfight anyone. At the same time they're all sufficiently technically skilled to compete with Spanish + Italian teams which used to be regarded superior technically. In other words, the top EPL teams have mixed European influences + the best of the English game to take the game to a higher level altogether, while the rest of Europe is watching + wondering....

^^^ Hahaha...

Epilogue :

In the end, however, Mighty Milan will prevail + put a crappy season behind + those nouveaux riches + parvenus in their place.


I got carried away a little. I think success comes in cycles + with all the money in the game right now + seemingly no end of the prospering in sight, the EPL might face a similar fate as Serie A... Some sort of implosion + self-cleansing.. once the dirt will come to the surface. The more is at stake, financially, the higher the likeliness of corruption. Has there ever been a more rigged game than Manure-Everton ?

Generally, regarding truly keep-worthy posts, I'm not sure if I wrote more than 5 or 6, but they're lost in the forum vault anyway, like so many of the better contributions floating around here 2003-05 + that's a pity. Not for my modest input, but for the bigger + better ... rest.

I wrote this last nite with the match thread as the place to post but this thread would suffice. I finally have some time to collect my thoughts on the win. For me this CL 07 win was probably the most emotional CL and Champions Cup triumph that I’ve experienced.

In 89 and 90 with the Dream Team (after winning the scudetto in 88) we proved that we were the best team in the whole world and the question was how many times we can do it. Although Olympique Marseille beat us next season (with the stadium floodlight scandal that brought the suspension from UEFA) but there was an atmosphere of full confidence that the team still had so much to offer since the core of the team was still intact.

In 94 we displayed such menacing defense and the only temporary scare was when we had to face Barca in the final without Baresi and Costacurta. The football lesson we displayed overshadowed the fact that we also won the scudetto in the same year (albeit unconvincingly since we only scored 36 goals throughout the whole season). Before the game many of us felt “at least we still won the scudetto”. It was magic, we felt that we could still win the game but a 4-0 mauling was truly beyond our wildest dreams.

In 03 we played beautifully throughout the whole group stage (even managed to gave away the last 2 games in each group stage since we qualified so early) and although we did just enough to beat Ajax and only qualified through the final by way of away goal vs Inter; we still oozed confidence and class. The arrival of Nesta finally ended Maldini’s search for the perfect partner that he’s been missing since Baresi, Rui Costa sprayed assists everywhere, Pippo scoring freely and Sheva recovered just in time. CL 03 trophy was a just and fair reward of the performance we showed.

But this time, this 07 season, everything seemed went bad for us. The biggest blow came even before the new season starts when we lost Sheva and when you lost the 2nd all time scoring record for your 100+ years club, it will take some time to find a replacement. Then came the calciopoli scandal and the points deduction. Sheva’s departure along with the scandal simply signaled to one thing: the end of an era. We dreaded the thought of having the likes Maldini and Costacurta end their glorious career in a low note.

Along with our domestic season, we failed to shine. True we topped the group but 1 draw and 2 losses from a group that consists of the likes of AEK Athens, Anderlect and Lille is far from convincing. An extra time goal from Kaka vs Celtics instilled the belief that a semifinal is the highest we can get. We only propelled ourselves starting with the away game vs Bayern and showed the world that we can still do it .

Then there’s an emotional baggage of Istanbul in 05. When you live in an EPL saturated region like Asia, where ESPN Asia never failed to mention this every time the name of Lpool and AC Milan is mentioned and when there’s enough contingent of Lpool fans (glory hunter or true ones); you will be haunted. They say it’s either the biggest comeback or meltdown in the history of Champions Cup/League or some neutral fans will say it’s the greatest cup final they’ve watched. But it only points to one fact : we lost in such a hurtful way.

The very mention of Turkey the country, or anything Turkish will bring back the memory of that crazy 6 minutes, that Dudek double save, that miss from Serginho, Pirlo and Sheva. Any Lpool game in any competition will be silently watched with disdain. Any mention of Benitez or Lpool players (active, already moved to other club, or even already retired and didn’t take any part in the Istanbul game) will boil my blood. Any penalty shoot out will sent a shiver. The sight of any Reebok products and Calrsbeerg ad will forced a dry smile from me. Any songs from the Beatles will sound like “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. Even if I watched Crespo plays with Inter or Sheva with Chelsea, it still hurts. All this will still make me take a deep breath and exhale it sadly. The only outlet of redemption is through PlayStation games and you just hope that we will be given one chance and one chance only (cue Mel Gibson speech in Braveheart) to prove that Milan still have the guts to do it.

Just today a friend of mine (big Lpool fans) said he won’t be able to listen to any sport program or read any sport related news for at least 2 weeks because the loss will somehow got the mention. Deep down I asked him silently “It’s been only few days and no doubt that you’re still hurt. Now imagine the feelings we Milan fans had to endure for the last 2 years since it took us that long to get over it and exorcise the demons of Istanbul”.

That’s what I felt, exorcise the demons of Istanbul! Milan players and staff said it’s not about revenge, it’s not about finally got something that we let slipped from our hands. They said it’s a different game and that they didn’t feel it. But they’re wrong. Deep down they know it’s all about revenge and we fans know it too. That was the text message I sent to other Lpool fans minutes after we beat ManU : revenge.

In the news after the final the media will understandably mention Istanbul, some TV stations will even show clips of that game before showing parts of the Athens game. I still felt a pang of pain with that loss but somehow with this win, the pain is less, as if a Scarlett letter has been taken out of our jersey, as if the burden is finally gone. Somehow we can finally close down that bitter chapter in our collective memory and somehow we can say ‘we got our revenge and we won’.
