The following year the MG team came again, mostly the same players along with the biggest 2 names : Sheva and Maldini. Due to out of town national conference I failed to attend the game, let alone their signatures. The organizer held a meet and greet photo/signature session and charged nearly USD 400 and many attended.

Nesta, Gattuso,Rivaldo, Rui Costa; all came as part of the Football Legend in 2014 (charging nearly USD 200, I hounded the hotel's lobby to get their signatures) that included the likes of Nakata, Silvestre, Toldo, Figo, Materazzi, Cannavaro etc. Zambrotta and SES were there too but refused to sign the pictures I prepared. I sneaked out of the barricade and I was standing next to SES but he still refused (there I was, a 39 years old man seeking the signture of a player in his 20s). Cannavaro screamed at me and I was harried back to the line behind the barricade

Pirlo and Allegri. Got their signatures when Juve came. My pic was the first signed by Pirlo among the bunch of people waiting. After they all went upstairs to their rooms and most tifosi went home, I waited because I haven't seen Allegri. He was still in the bar, lounging with Juve entourage. I waited and got his signature and posed with him.

I also missed some. Edgar Davids came on a futsal workshop, Jaap Stam and Kluivert with Dutch National Team, Jesper Blomqvist on some event, Ray Wilkins on an old EPL legend game. But the BIGGEST miss is surely Ruud Gullit. He came to Indonesia 3 times (!) and I simply missed all of the opportunities. I still regret all those Gullit lost chances.
If I could like your post everytime you post I would put my dick in it and put it there for forever

I met Gullit last last year. He was at a mall near my place for I don't know why.. Nobody knew he was there and most of the passerby had no idea who he was

I got a handshake since I was purging towards him from the security staff

Quite friendly, he was all smiles

Also arranged a meet up for Milan fans with Adil Rami via Twitter when he was here last year.
oh yeah, and I should also include my almost there's with Ronaldinho, Kaka, Robinho and Honda...

I think it would be worth it to have a "photos of your Milan stuff" thread. I bet we all have cool things to share. Do we have something like that?

I live in NY, so I met the team on two occasions. The Adidas Performance Store in Manhattan typically runs a promotion every two years (when Milan go on the US tour) that if you purchase at least $80 worth of items, you get wristbands to meet and greet the team. You can take pictures and have them sign whatever you'd like.

I met the 2012 team where we had Cassano, Montolivo, Acerbi, El Shaarawy, Boateng, Robinho, Allegri as coach etc.

Out of all the players I liked Flamini and Montolivo the most. I got into a conversation with Flamini, really nice guy. Boateng was a bit of an idiot yelling at fans if they didn't take pictures fast enough..

Then the second meet and greet was last year. I met Mastour, Balotelli, Rami, Mexes, El Shaarawy, and the best- Pippo. I took the pic of Pippo in my signature; the Adidas employees were being really pushy and difficult at this event for some reason, and I didn't have the chance to take a picture with Pippo- although I got a pair of Diadora boots signed from him. I honestly just wanted to meet him I didn't care much for the rest of the squad


I met Thierry Henry this way when he played for the Red Bulls (not a Milan player but the guy is legend regardless).

I have loads of pics I'll upload when I get around to it, and I'll post on here if the Adidas store in Manhattan ever has events like these again. I expect them to hold an meet and greet this summer for the NYCFC team (they did it soo many times for the Redbulls so it is only a matter of time that NYC's team does a meet and greet) and that will be my chance to meet Pirlo, my fav player besides Kaka.

Well it falls somewhere between this thread: http://forum.acmilan-online.com/showthread.php?t=4953 , this thread: http://forum.acmilan-online.com/showthread.php?t=2853 and this thread: http://forum.acmilan-online.com/showthread.php?t=7713

I know none of these are exactly what you're seeking. Maybe we should create a new one.. 'My Milan memories' or something.

I met Pirlo last week before the NYCFC match vs Philadelphia. He signed my ball and I took a picture with him. I can die a happy man after meeting a player I looked up to as a child. I also met Patrick Vieira, Frank Lampard, and David Villa. But Pirlo was the player I wanted to meet the most.

Well done maestro! Did he sign it with THE pen and did a tear trickle down his cheek while thinking of Milan?
