Default Can Inzaghi pair Crespo upfront?

Just an interesting thought came to mind, so now Inzaghi's back. Do you guys think that Inzaghi can partner up with Crespo, or vice-versa? Since they both play in the same way and style. Both are so called Tap-in strikers. They both cherry-pick or pounce on loose balls in front of goal. They both need someone else like Kaka, Pirlo, or Rui Costa to provide them with defense-breaching passes to set them up.

So what do you think?

No because there is no complementarity between these 2 players.They play same football.

Who knows if Inzaghi can even play football period. God I loved him in his prime but let's faced it. Two ankle surgeries in a span of one year? how long is it going to take Inzaghi to get to match fitness? I just don't know about him, he has to prove himself in a substitute roll if he wants to play again.

But Yes, I believe both Crespo and Inzaghi can play on the field at once. The other Milan players will have to learn how to deliver to them better but Inzaghi it a tough boy who will fight for balls in the box.

You need some diversity up front. A tap in striker and a shooter. I think the best duo is two shooting strikers.

Sheva is supposed to be back in a short while, so why would Ancelotti want to pair Crespo + Inzaghi ? He'd either field JDT/Crespo, JDT/Inzaghi or a lone striker backed by 2 out of Kaka'/Rui/Serginho.

Don't rack your precious brains on shit that is not going to happen anyway

I guess the best option for us is to have Crespo + Sheva at the front but that would mean Rui Costa sitting out.
And Inzaghi should watch the game from the sidelines.

U wanna noe wat i tink????

Inzaghi should juz be up there as a lone striker.....I seriously believe that he played better when he's all alone...

Crespo is best paired with Sheva...they haf a better understanding...

Maybe Inzaghi should juz start considering playing in Inter...coz his best mate is there after all

Milan should juz dispose Inzaghi and JDT and start bidding for Ronaldinho....hez the best player in the world and he should be playing with the best club in the world too, i.e MILAN!!!

Sheva n Crespo don't have a great understanding of each other, proved again 2day in the PSV match. For some reason Sheva can't work with him. Inzaghi should b sold, i don't think a striker at 31yrs can regain his form when he was 29 especially after 2 ankle surgeries in the one yr.

RONNY D WILL NEVER LEAVE BARCA what don't u understand about this lol his buy out clause atm is worth 180million. U think we want 2 spend that much on the one player???? Ur kidding urself

pairing crespo and inzaghi will be so boring,crespo is an old fashion centre foward inzaghi abit creative but no skills,it wont do us any good playing them together,it is even better pairing one of them with jdt.

There's absolutely no harm in dreaming abt Ronaldinho as a Rossoneri......judging from the pool of strikers we haf in our hand at present, wif Sheva being the only one in form (pls remember that we can';t be overly-dependent on juz one striker to finish the job), we must buy somebody prolific and juz as deadly and who can blend well with the rest...and Ronaldinho has dvlop great understanding wif Kaka looking at the WC qualifying games and all.....

And hey....we can't judge Crespo juz coz he had a bad game against PSV..contrary to your belief, I seriously believed that he is the best person to pair up wif Sheva.....

Crespo and Pippo should never be partnered. They both waited in the box for the ball to come their way since they can't go wide and dribble into the box or create chances for other team-mates. The only league game Crespo scored when we played a lone striker in that christmas tree formation was in the Roma game (and it came from a cross). It serves as no surprise since the midfield players have to do all the job breaking into the defense THEN pass the ball to him if he's free.

For both of them, their performance can be simply summed up like this: if they score then they have a good game. If not, then bad game. You can't expect any assist or defense splitting runs from them. In both the MU game, Crespo sucked all the way until he scored and we start praising them.

But if chance and ball go their way, they're simply one of the best in the business, especially Pippo.

this might work in football manager (championship manager), but i would never image playing them at the same time together in the real life... there has to be a sheva type of striker, the one that dribbles from outside, or even deliver crosses once a while

Thats the fact..

We have only one Shevchenko, but you need to have strikers like Pippo and Crespo. I'm impressed with Crespo's heading ability, just remember some goals this season..

Crespo and Inzaghi together in attack. Perhaps not.. but I don't know that..
I just know that Inzaghi was scoring like mad when our 3 man attack looked like Rui Costa - Rivaldo - Inzaghi..
