I do indeed and would you believe his name is James? Seriously, it's true!

Not all us Irish are alcoholics, you know. Occasionally, if you look hard enough, you can see sober people walking up and down the street.
I stress 'occasionally' and they're more than likely waiting for the pub to open.
And this collective national shortcoming pointed out by a resident of a country that celebrates 'beer festivals'.

Charming.

yeah yeah,we are all stupid,everyone...carlo too,huh?
i think u should be milan's coach not that guy who loves hernan so much that he plays him as the only striker in the most important matches ,sorry but i think u'r obsessed with inzaghi

Not 'the country' does, Bavaria does. That's a country within the country, sort of, that I'm not associated with, thankfully.

Wow, 8 posts under the belt + already shooting sharp.. Ancelotti has no choice. JDT sucks this season, more than ever. You would have noticed if you were less obsessed with my alleged obsession.

JDT sucks,and that's coz he doesn't get that many chances to play...and guess why???,it's because hernan is far better then both JDT and Pippo

you want to talk about being honest and you said that crespo doesnt do jack shit without pinpoint assits? lol! thats the biggest bunch of crape ive ever had! 99% of pippo's goals have been from pin point assits! Ill admit, crespo hasnt been the same player he was before. But he is still better then pippo. Pippo hasnt done anything for 2 years!

Ah look, there's a thread on Crespo + who shows up to turn it into a Pippo discussion ? Menon + his sidekicks...

Damn, this is getting sooooo old, can't you think of something new ?

Btw, how's Superman these days ?

I'd suggest those anti-Crespo people save themselves some dignity and talk about something/someone else.

Crespo's scoring, Milan management seem to want to make the move permanent and Milan are winning.

You just look silly.

yeah..it looks like milan will try to keep crespo, permenantly..i just hope it wont happen though..IMO, a fully fit inzaghi is better in terms of scoring goals (or perhaps wont miss too many chances) than crespo..and knowing that gilardino is coming to milan, there's gonna be only 1 place for these strikers in the starting eleven to partner sheva next season..however, the reality is that milan want crespo and crespo wants to stay at milan whether we like it or not..but im positive that once pippo is back (fit 100%), he's gonna fight for his place in the starting eleven and perhaps score loads of goals like he used to..

Dont agree...u cannot speak about his past days at parma,,,crespos days are ending now....coz if we stay going back to crespos time at parma y dont we go back and rui costa's time at fiorentina..he doesnt do one tenth with milan of what he used to do with fiorentina...we cannot compare a 30 year old current form with his form 8 years ago...at 30 hes start heading for a own fall not an increase in form...i would just love to have recoba on the bench as a sub for gilardino...how dnt inter realise recobas potential...inters job is just to ruin a players future..i wouldnt mind miccoli too

And as for doing nothing for the whole game against Lazio - apart from scoring, SO? The entire Milan team could have been guilty of doing nothing in that match, apart from Sheva, but at least when an opportunity finally presented itself, Crespo found the back of the net.
Sorry to get u back on this one...but striker cant just wait and wait to score a goal...he has to be able to create a goal for others....not only himself...look at shevcenko and kaka...they create goals for others not just sit and wait on the edge of the offside line to be given a pass....and by creating a goal i dnt mean by just a pass..i mean by movements....Movimental Feints.....thrust me i know what im saying...ive played leage football for the past 12 years..and this season with milan we havent won a game with a large score line just because of crespo...we always find that lucky goal..example..pirlo on the 92nd minute about a week ago..kakas fluke against inter...were not building up goal scoring chances...and its not not because of our midfield...its because out striker crepo doesnt open up the defence for our midfielders to penetrate...hence...machester vs milan 1st round...where was crespo?? lazing infront of the goal keeper...luckily the goal keeper did a mistake...and dnt give me the shit of...''what if he wasnt there'' coz if he wasnt there we probably would have scored more than 1 VERY VERY LUCKY goal....i love milan and i dnt know my milan winning only with 1 goal margin...

Please before u speak about dignity...look at milans recent run of forms regarding goals per match!!!!Crespo just doesnt move...what u crespo lovers have to realise is that crespo cannot improve...he can only go worse...we need to invest in young strikers....gilardino now...robinho and fabiano...Crespo has past his time since he left parma...Inter striker 9 or 10 goals in 1 season which is very bad..coz 10 goals from a top serie a team come from a midfielder....3 or 4 goals at Chelsea...I know what u Crespo lovers feel...even i am a very bid admirer of Crespo...but his time has passed...he cannot certainly be in the 1st eleven...if he were to stay i would only like to see him on the bench nothing more...i dnt think milan should invest in him...at his age its only a waste of money...they should invest in the young with little money like robinhi whos a wonder kid like kaka...hes as good as crespo if not better and will become like sheva in the future...so plz dnt go speaking about dignity to me..thank u

Every player has his own traits, and you just cant go on and say, strikers are not there to wait and score a goal, thats what they are there for. Score a goal. People like Batistuta, Vieri, Pippo, Ruud, and crespo himself, all of these strikers possess the same traits. As much time as you have played league football, you should know that, any two of these players mentioned above can never partner in a strike partnership. There can never be a batistuta+crepo or crespo+pippo partnership, why? well figure it out, because they possess the same traits, they drop back in times of corner, and thats about it really, they are not assisters, which shevchenko is. Shevchenko can assist, and finish and thats why he can partner any of these strikers or even can play as a lone striker. The thing for me is, Crespo has saved milan more than twice this season, be his first season with this club, with these players, with us the fans. Calling his goals fluke, or lucky, doesnot mean a thing, because they are all goals. Every goal is lucky from the scorers point of view, and unlucky from the oppositions. As much as I adore Crespo, but i tend to be logical as well, so come'on, hand this guy some admiration, atleast for the things which he has done for us atleast.

Some people here don't get that Crespo is not a good deal, since he won't come for cheap, is 30 in the summer + physically he is not the guy anymore that he was at 22/23 (stop living in the past, San Paolo). So why bother + waste a lot of money on him ? What's so special about his goals this season ? JDT scored approx. the same number last year + yet everyone is happy to let him go. Crespo will most likely share Jon's fate should Gilardino arrive, yet we'll be stuck with him for the rest of his career, paying a huge salary, having payed a crazy asking price + having most likely given away some other players as part of the deal that we need to replace too. Can't you think logically + long-term ? This is not about pro or anti-Crespo bias but about using your brain

Thanks for the offer but I won't bother thrusting you, not really my scene.

A bit paradoxical, Matthias, insisting that you know what you're saying and then praising a hugely overpaid, hugely inconsistent player like Recoba. The reason his potential wasn't realised is that he only has the ability to play a good game once every 2 or 3 months. End of story.

You've played in Serie A for the past 12 years? Or is it the Bundesliga? Please enlighten me.

I certainly agree on that one................. though some might jump to his defense + argue he's only another victim of the Inter curse + at Milan he would shine

Quite possibly. And it seems to have an opposite effect on players departing Milan for Inter, e.g Francesco Coco, 'Guly' & Thomas Helveg.
