Im glad we sold him, not just because he sucked big time on the field, but he was also a cheat, always diving, and now he scored with his hand, I was watching the live streaming of the game and the commentator said there was a time when italian players used to admit when they use their hand to score a goal e.g. De Rossi, so I was wondering why Gila acted as if he scored a legitimate goal. Gilardino gave us a bad image, the dive against celtic is almost as bad as Dida's the year after, and scottish people dont take pussies to kindly and thats what we looked like infront of them. anyway good ridance, im much happier with Borriello who contributes much more to the team play, he may not be scoring much at the moment, but we look like a proper team and our attacks look like proper attacks with him upfront.

I'm with you. And Borriello ought to smack him for that... Marco just does hard work. He doesn't need to use his arms. Lets face it, Gila is a weak ass that should play in the Serie B. Borriello uses his feet, not his arms like a loser.

This certainly proves it. Even Prandelli admitted he cheated. And Palermo had a legitimate goal ruled out.

Gila should be suspended, as should the referees in this game (fire them!).

WEll I've seen it elsewhere basically everywhere, even more blatant. In fact there was a more blatant hand ball recently... Scholes anyone?

Gila is not really weak, he was just a pussy when he was with us, today vs Palermo he won many many many high balls due to his physique, something I never saw him do at milan, also he was able to work himself out of situations, at one point when the score was 3-1, two palermo guys were running at him like crazy and he touched the balls twice and the 2 guys flew past him then he passed the ball, cool and composed, again I never saw that at milan, I only remember him looking at the ground when he was dribbling, like a rookie. good for him, fiorentina, italian football, and us that he left us and joined them.

Scholes did realize he did something wrong, didn't he? And he got a proper treatment for that.

THAT'S my problem with Gila....he never seems to acknowledge that he ever did anything wrong. When he missed the crucial penalty he never showed some remorse but arrogantly said "I'd do it again". It's ok to have some arrogance especially as a striker BUT that + the "I love Juve" + all the diving, flopping + making no adjustments or efforts to try new approaches +++ the fact that his arrival meant CRESPO'S departure :mad: makes him an instant hate figure for me.

I sold him in my first season in FIFA07 & Fifa 08 to Inter :D

Well, when he arrived he was welcomed by me. The way he played at Parma was surely promising, he was a young homegrown (Italian) talent, and most importantly, he started well. His first season, though not excellent was good. However, as time passed by, all the illusions he managed to create were gone. He was never a world class striker, never a strong character and definitely not a Milanista. That way, it's for the best that we parted ways with him.

I'm glad he's doing well for Viola, but would never want him back.

The reason I'm quoting you is because I too sold him in any football game the last two seasons. :)

Yup ,his the typical good player for teams that only challenge for the first places ,but when he arrives in a top team he can`t cut it . And it`s not that he does not have the ability to do it ,it`s just that his mentally weak. If he does not know his the top dog in the team his bound to fail.

On another note i wonder how much did moratti pay to make him miss the derby :rolleyes: .It`s things like this that ruin the name of Serie A .


p.s : Milano84 ur sig is disturbing.

Yeah well that was quite obvious... Gila did cover it by celebrating... and thus the referees might have thought it was valid.

Still you must admit... the referees in this game were awful...

I can't say I'm surprised that Gilardino got a two match ban especially considering that Fiorentina meet Inter in the next match day. Another prime example of how Inter are pulling the strings and will do anything necessary to weaken their opponents unfairly.

Well if Inter plays as badly as they did against Genoa... I think Fiorentina will be fine. I hope for a 1-1 draw.

This is enormous stupid decision!!!
How can FA ban some player for hand ball just like that?!
1. If somebody is to be banned it will be the ref
2. The goalkeeper of Palermo was BIG after the game and he said that the hand goal is OK for him because Gilardino was pushed from behind and if that wasn't a goal then it will be PK for Viola!
Fiorentina made appeal but hey... it's Moratti here! :mad:
It's not just because they play against Merda now... so from now on it will be very easy to be ref... maybe if some player score from offside it will be him who will be punished and not the refs :rolleyes:

Conspiracy talk. :rolleyes: No there isn't any conspiracy. Mexes followed by Gilardino is only a mere coincidence.

It's a yellow card if this kind of deliberate handball is spotted during the game. Why is it a two-match ban now? I can only think of Merda as the reason.

Gilardino's suspension stands

Fiorentina star Alberto Gilardino has failed in his appeal against a two-match ban for scoring with his hand against Palermo.

The calcio world has been divided by Gilardino's goal in Fiorentina's 3-1 win over Palermo on Sunday evening.

The Azzurri hitman put the ball in with his wrist, but only after he seemed to be pushed by defender Hernan Dellafiore while bearing down on goal.

The disciplinary commission decided to impose a two-game suspension when reviewing video evidence after the game, which would keep Gilardino out for tomorrow's big game against Inter.

Many voices have been raised in support of Gila and Inter chief Massimo Moratti expected his ban to be quashed, but the decision has been upheld.

The Italian Football Federation's court of justice reviewed the evidence and feel that the original judgement was fair.

Fiorentina Coach Cesare Prandelli will now have to trust in Giampaolo Pazzini to partner Adrian Mutu.

Fiorentina’s Gilardino Overjoyed With Steaua Triumph

Alberto Gilardino was the hero for the Viola tonight, as his goal was enough to send them through to the Uefa cup.

La Viola traveled to Romania earlier tonight to face Steaua Bucharest, in a match that they had to attain a result from, to ensure that their adventure in Europe continued.

Both sides had already been eliminated from the Champions League, however a spot in the Uefa cup was up for grabs, something that the Viola were desperate to make the most of.

Alberto Gilardino grabbed his fifth goal of the campaign and the only goal of the match after 66 minutes, when he scored with a header following a brilliant cross in from Juan Manuel Vargas.

At the completion of the contest, he spoke about his performance tonight and his current feelings in regards to playing with Fiorentina.

“I feel great lately, and I am in great form,” Gilardino said in an interview with Sky.

“I stand by my decision to leave Milan, and I have no regrets with making it.

“I am so enthusiastic at Fiorentina, and we are doing extremely well, as was the case again tonight, as we recorded an important victory and can hold our heads high as a result,” he added.

“It is a great satisfaction to qualify for the Uefa cup, as it is something we desperately wanted to achieve tonight,” he concluded.

Gila had one final comment regarding his strike partner Adrian Mutu, and his passion for playing alongside him.

“I’m fine with Adrian, and I really enjoy playing with him, as we form a good attacking combination.

“But I am fine with everyone at Fiorentina, and that is why I love playing here so much,” he continued.

Gilardino will be hoping to carry on his good form again this weekend in the Serie A, when his side hosts Catania on Sunday.

Gila: "For the fourth place we the Milan"
19.12.2008 15.43 di Antonio Vitiello articolo letto 450 volte 19.12.2008 15.43 by Antonio Vitiello article read 450 times

Alberto Gilardino fa il quadro generale della situazione in campionato, vedendo come obiettivo principale il quarto posto. Alberto Gilardino is the overall picture of the situation in the championship, seeing as its principal objective the fourth place. La squadra sulla quale fare la corsa è proprio il Milan: "Il Napoli ha qualità e organizzazione, la Juventus oggi è la prima rivale dell'Inter per il titolo. Il Milan? A -9 deve fare grandi cose per raggiungere lo scudetto, quindi noi per la quarta piazza dovremo puntare più i rossoneri che la Juve". The team on which to do the race is the Milan: "The Naples has quality and organization, Juventus today is the first Inter rival for the title. The Milan? A -9 must do great things for attaining the Scudetto, then us for the fourth place we must focus more rossoneri that Juve. "

Infine un paragone tra Firenze e Milano, ovvero sulla gestione dei due allenatori: "Prandelli umanamente e tecnicamente è il mio tecnico preferito. Mi trovo benissimo a Firenze, mi piace l'attaccamento della gente alla squadra, a Milano non è così. Cos'altro è cambiato rispetto al Milan? Dopo 3 anni lì, fisicamente qui è cambiato tutto" Finally a comparison between Florence and Milan, or on management of the two coaches, "Prandelli humanly and technically is my favorite technician. I am well in Florence, I like the people's attachment to the team, Milan does not. Cos' else has changed compared to Milan? After 3 years there, physically here has changed everything "

Gilardino: Worst Years Of My Career At Milan
Fiorentina striker and former Milan player Alberto Gilardino has looked back on his disappointing time with the Rossoneri...


Alberto Gilardino moved to Milan after being a huge success with Parma, for whom he scored plenty of goals. However, the Italian international was never able to repeat that feat with Milan.

Since moving to Fiorentina in the summer, the 26-year-old has become prolific once again, already bagging 12 goals in Serie A this season.

"Milan? They were the worst years of my career," he said in an interview with the Corriere Della Sera. "I have not cleared up things (with Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti), but I don't harbour any resentment. He made his choices and I respect them."

Although, the former Parma player has been in great form, Fiorentina were still bounced from the Champions League and will now prepare again for the challenge of the UEFA Cup.

"This coming year, we aim to return to the Champions League and progress as far as possible in the UEFA Cup," he declared, before recalling shoot-out pain at the hands of Rangers, saying: "Last year, my teammates and I just missed out on the final because of penalty kicks.

"We want to prove ourselves."

The Viola currently sit in fourth place in Serie A and have been drawn against Ajax in the next round of UEFA Cup action.

The real interview:http://www.corriere.it/sport/08_dic...no_116d4f76-d18d-11dd-b875-00144f02aabc.shtml

"Gli ultimi mesi al Milan sono stati difficili...
«Di più. I peggiori di una carriera costantemente in crescita. Neppure quando mi hanno tirato in ballo con certe foto nell'ambito dell'inchiesta su Corona ho sofferto così tanto».
Però del Milan parla sempre bene.
Non potrei fare il contrario. Grande società, grande squadra. E ho conservato tanti amici. Bonera è un fratello, con Pirlo e Inzaghi mi sento spesso. E con Jankulovski mi sono messaggiato proprio ieri... A quei ragazzi mi legano successi e stima professionale ».
E con Ancelotti vi siete chiariti?
«No. Ma non gli porto rancore. Ha fatto le sue scelte e io le rispetto ».

Q:The last months at Milan were hard....
A: The hardest. The worst of my career. Not even when the photograph incident happend had I suffered as much".
Q:But you have always talked good about Milan
A: And I couldn't do otherwise. Great management, great squad. And I have several friends. Bonera is a brother, I constantly talk with Pirlo and Inzaghi. And I have sent messages to Jankulovski just yesterday...
Q: And with Ancelotti have you cleared things?
A: No, but I don't harbour any resentment. He made his choices and I respect them."

He also had nice words about Pato, Sheva and Borriello.

Also: http://www.gazzetta.it/Calcio/Calciomercato/Primo_Piano/2008/12/26/tutte.shtml
Lyon has offered 25 millions for his service, of course Fiorentina won't let him go.

The hardest of his career? He's 26 and only really played at 2 clubs previously, he was mid table Parma's golden boy and every play went though him, of course that was hardly going to be a tough career defining moment.

Milan was more expectation, and despite starting brightly in his first year, and doing, Ok in the second, he wasn't really up to CL quality, and probably won't ever be. Bit of a drama queen eh? I'd believe it if he was 32+.


He should of moved to Fiorentina instead of Milan anyway.

Eventhough he's doing some quite nice job at Viola, I'll never regret the decision to sell him.
He was poor at Milan, and that's a fact. He would never do any good since I consider him a player for a lower level/team. He never shines for Italy NT and that's another reason that he is not a big team player.

I'm happy to see his career back on track, but even if he'll be a 35 goals per season man, I would never welcome him back.
