Pato is the exception, not the rule.

Correct. The fact is, that is easier for a 23 year old to stay healthy or heal quicker if injured then it is for a 30+ year old.

I already spoke about the weakness of Milans training regime in regarding younger players,(not fact) but I think out of all the big teams we have the most injuries to our squad.

your perspective is appreciated, but I think there is there something wrong with our training methods and showing in the durability of our players.


Look at flamini's injury that was borderline comical. sometimes I watch Milan training and see players(mainly older) half stretching and half doing the drills.

I stand by my assumption that the regime is to weak for the players in there prime or approaching it.

but yes to your point injuries happen no matter what, but training regime is in place to lesson the chances and frequency of such an accurance.

Yeah at the adidas store on Oxford street London yesterday they had this design on three jackets but all were badgeless, actually looks slick as fuck on the windbreaker version.

Pato: 'We're going to Napoli to win'

Quote:
Alexandre Pato has promised that Milan go into the weekend clash with Napoli with the aim of winning the game.

In light of a number of key absences in attack, speculation is that Massimiliano Allegri could be tempted to field similar tactics to that seen against Barcelona in the Champions League in midweek.

Brazilian forward Pato demonstrated his responsiveness to the team's reliance on him on the counter-attack, by scoring inside 25 seconds of kick-off in Spain.

However, where they eventually went on to draw with the European Cup holders, the No 7 believes the team go into the weekend trip to Napoli with the intention of picking up all three points.

“Napoli is a team that is doing well, as they proved in the Champions League, but the fact remains we are going there to win.

“It is true that the championship is long and there are still many matches. However, every point counts in the end and is likely to be important.

“That is why I will do everything to gain success, and I would be happy to also score the decisive goal.”

Pato scored on his Serie A and Milan debut in January 2008 against Napoli, and from his first 128 games as a Rossoneri player, has scored 58 goals in all competitions.

Only Andriy Shevchenko, with 76 goals, has a better record at the club from the same number of opening games.

I may get into trouble for double posting this in the rumour commoe, but I'm not sure where was best to post this idea as it covers a few topics, but I'm interested in peoples thoughts. Since peeps are talking about not selling/selling Binho, and the topic of Barca and attacking units working together with midfield as an attacking and defensive unit this idea came to me...

I was thinking, over the next season and a half we'll see the rest of the Senatores leave, plus I think Ibra has a lot to prove re: his fitness/stamina etc. What are peoples thoughts firstly on Pato growing into a lone true striker role? Secondly I wouldn not get rid of Binho, if Pato does prove he can run the line alone backed up by Binho and an energetic midfield, do people think it could work.... Something like this...

Pato
Binho
Hamsik/Urby............................. Prince/Aqua
Monty/Merkel... New DM/Strasser

Its not as creative as Barca, but given we've definatly got a more solid defence, a midfield that is powerful and can break quickly and with intent could be the way to go?

It was just a though, all this talk of Torrres, Binho, perhaps adding Balo into the mix with what I've suggested above, but a dynamic midfield could negate the need to have so many forwards... Favouring a midfield that can also supply and score goals, making for defenses not having an easy job in marking our attack out the game

Just some idea's since the rumours have dried up

You my friend have a great footballing brain.


You are rigth about us not having that creative element, but for what we lack in that department we must make up for in grit and determination, not as attractive but will get the job done.

I can see more and more Pato filling in as a lone ST role, he has all the qualities speed, great finishing, good tactical awareness. Only thing is we would need a Vice pato. Who would that be..

Maybe offload Zlatan and use money to bring in a suarez? as someone said before?

Like you say if we have many different supply routes which ones do our opponents mark?

However if you chose that formation we would need to see a lot of Urby and Prince getting forward. Pato on his own completely can not do it. These two will provide cover for Pato while he get's into position.

Great suggestion I like it !

I think all teams sponsored by Adidas wear those in CL, I've seen other teams in CL using them too, I think it's some official Adidas thing and looks the same for all teams.

Do you think 50 million be enough if they are given Pato?
