Default Evaluation on our current transfer progress

The team's performance on the transfer market this summer has been absoutely terrible. It was reported that Milan had around 80 million dollars to spend on this summer's transfer market, 45 million of that money came from Shevchenko's transfer. The transfer market is going to be closed in about 20 days, and the club only spent like 7 million of that money while missing out on every single one of their transfer targets such as Torres, Diarra, Emerson, Zambrotta, Crespo, Ibrahimovic, Gallas...the list goes on and on. Now, I thought one of the biggest reason we sold Shevchenko to Chelsea was to gather funds for a major shake up to solve our squad's age problems. The plan was to sign one or two strikers to replace Shevchenko and then sign some young players and defenders. With only 20 days to go, almost every single one of our targets are off the market, and yet, we have no one to replace Shevchenko and we didn't solve our midfield and defender problems. I would like to know what the club did with all those money. Is Berlusconi trying to buy himself another boat? Are we trying to replace Shevchenko with Amoroso? I just don't think our squad is going to make it anywhere in the European Champions League or for that matter in the domestic competitions. If the team make any less than three major moves (shevchenko's replacement, midfielder and defender), they will have a heck of a time getting their butt whooped next year.

Technically TorresDiarraGallas are still up for grabs, as is Tevez + other WC starlets. Not that I'm advocating any of them.

Yeah, Milan had the $$$ but were derailed by the Calciopoli saga. By the time everything was sorted out all the good players (ie. WC finalists, after whom I assume our mngt. was really after) were gone + we either didn't try enough or weren't strong enough to lure the 2nd-choicers.

Otherwise, to judge by our signings so far, Silvio's still focused on making our 'big surprise' an offer he can't refuse + just can't be bothered w. anything else. That boat theory is a possibility too

i totally agree with you we sold one of the best strikers in the world(along with henry and eto'o) and we aint even going to replace him, we seriously need a striker gila and pippo cant play togeather because gila hasen't scored when playing with pippo, so why are we not buying we could have signed ibra easily but we blew it, torres wants to stay at atletico and tevez i dont think we are interested in him so who the hell is left we will probably sign someone old like usual but we need some youth so all i am trying to say is berlusconi , braida, galliani whoever signs the players get your finger out of your ass and spend some money please.

Thats the thing the market aint closed yet. Usually the last week is very intense when it comes to transfers. Either we push for Suazo, or temp Torres or move for Tavano.

I see this season being a disappointment. I hope I'm wrong, but Billy, Serghi and the rest of the crew won't be able to carry out a successful season. We start Serie A with -8 points, with Grosso, Crespo and Ibra playing for Inter, with Gattuso, Pirlo, Nesta, Cafu and Kaka tired from WC! Champions league? Chelsea, Barcelona, Real, Manchester, Arsenal, Lyon... Can we beat them all? I wish we could!

bonera and gourcuff are ok. But, we still need a CD and a striker. There's time. And we got the money.

our management is too scared and incapable of signing big names, i am sure you all have your mixed opinions on Ibra,Zambrotta,Buffon,Cannavaro,Torres,Diarra,Gros so
but this is a joke out of all those players we failed to sign even 1 and yes there is still hope as far as Torres & Diarra but i for 1 am convinced all we can expect is another pensioner for free and thatll be our squad

and maybe Oddo which will be a good signing

We've been sitting back alot. I don't know what happened to Milan, but we always seemed to get our players, WHEN we wanted them. We wanted Gilardino, well at one point it was almost considered impossible, but we got him. We snatched kaka from sao paolo right under real madrid and chelsea's noses, and once they realised we got him, they didn't know what hit them. We got Lazio's captain...Nesta. We've been lagging this year. IMHO, Ancelotti doesn't want to spend big, and see how this current squad will do for a few months, and then buy re-inforcements in January.

for our sakes i hope your right but why would he do that our squad isnt good neough at the moment, why not sign players now in pre-season and allow them to gell & bond a bit better whereas in january they will be thrown into the thick of it

No chance on all four. I really don't see any new players coming, of any significance.
