But we had to pay him for unjoining us LOL

Anyway I think the ones who label Rui Costa as a flop are a strong minority.

Rui Costa remains one of my favourite players of all time. He never reached his full potential, but he was all heart.

Am not bashing him.
But he came as “the best playmaker in the world” & he was never that with us.
Take away Nesta's 2005-2006 season & few game after it & him 2 didnt give us the Lazio Nesta.
I really hope he continue 2 play as he did in 2005-2006 not as b4.

It's cool man, I don't think you were bashing him and I agree that he was never “the best playmaker in the world” with us. But he was effective in that CL win in 2003 and at times was fantastic, despite the fact that he couldn't score to save his life.

He'll always be a legend to me because of his attitude and the way he carried himself and endeared himself to the fans.

I suppose the best way to describe Rui Costa is as a 'Cult Hero'.



Back to Pato, he might be good, but we still need another striker cos Pato will not be starting games continuously come January 3rd. We need someone we can use NOW!

Perhaps he never played at the level he did at Fiorentina... though to say he was a flop at Milan is just plain ridiculous.

wingers?
supposedly incompatible with milan's style
LoL

we've been too predictable for a lot longer than one season
and i don't understand why our management is so hesitant to address the problems -
relying on aging and geriatric "wingbacks" with both defensive and offensive deficiencies being one of them

rui turned into a liability within just a few months, when was it, 2003

not only did he never score, he lost his passing, indulged in mindless dribblings and as a result became prone to losing possession

very frustrating
that year we lost the scudetto partly because of him

why would i be kidding?

LoL

it wasn't i who was spending the past months on this forum incessantly moaning about our lack of new signings

but i see people compensating for their disappointment
by elevating some of our more average players into worldclass status

maybe you're right
and making believe will make us better

in any case:
sorry
i didn't mean to disturb your emotioal healing

Gila hasn't met our expectations but still as ridiculous as this sounds, he was the top scorer for milan last season. So that leads me to beleive they all had a tough time. I think this year has to be better and he MUST make a mark in champions league or we may have to say good bye to Gila. I do admire his play I know he is in a rut but I wish him the best and pray he pulls through.

believe me, if i lightened up more i'd be indefinitely euphoric which is not the most balanced state to be in

i'm not some doom&gloom monger, just someone who believes in the necessity of evolution in football

you'll get used to me
