SouthClaw said:this is my interpretation(BSc Psych) of his psyche:
he is constantly looking for approval and friendship.
he doesn't believe that he has any traits to make himself attractive to potential friends, so he chooses to annoy people hoping to recruit fellow annoying people as his friends. but they problem with them is that you never know when they betray you by kicking you out of your own forum . and then you end up crying to yourself everynight. and then you convince yourself that who you are is not important. the only way to convince himself of that is to make himself believe that superficial things like degrees and money are valued most by society. an if he doesn't realise those superficial things are meaningless, then he will go through severe depression before he knows he has to reset his priorities. as he is a fellow human being, i wish him the best to figure all this stuff out before he completely loses confidence in himself as a person. Best of luck Tsar.
Wild said:VanBasten ?
1 word -- > elegant.
VanBasten used 2 play like “he already watched the game”.
I don’t think I ever seen a more smarter striker/player like him.
He used 2 shoot with both feet + a good header.
He used 2 make goals look so easy.
Without dribbling or running – just perfect control + perfect finish & boom -- > goal.
He was also creative since he used 2 pick assists as much as packing goals.
I will tell u 1 story & I hope that my memory serve me well.
Milan were facing a Swedish team with a crazy GK that reached the game without conceding not even 1 goal.
They played & VanBasten scored 4 goals LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL
1 volley + 1 penalty + 1 head 2 head & he got pass him + 1 shot in the upper corner when he was taking off balance but still manage 2 make the shot.
VanBasten was 1 of a kind.
He was perfect & Ronaldo isnt -- > weak header.
I think only Sheva is close 2 his simplicity , CLOSE.
In another word : he was a better version than Sheva.
Lo Tsar said:Bwahhahhhaa, Oh I see what you did there. You changed the last word of my nick from Tsar to Banned. Thats the funniest thing I ever heard!!!! And there was me thinking you would be too busy calculating the circumference of the ref's arsehole to spend time on plays of word like that.
gaizka22 said:Milan came to the game without Baresi and Costacurta in central defense, that's like having Milan came to CL 03 final without Nesta and Maldini. So the notion was Barca's offense will easily shred the make-shift defense. See the line up in lemon's post and you could see how strong Barca side is. And acgaetano was right about the comment that Cruyff made about Milan side, how they culd easily beat us. If you see the goal celebration, you could see it was more than just happiness for scoring but there was the "eat this" and "who's your daddy now?" attitude
So it's the combination of winning, beating a very good strong team, the score line, the way Milan played and of course goals from Savicevic and Desailly.
Remember how people went crazy about Cambiasso's goal vs Serbia in the WC? How the ball was passed 20+ time before the goal? Milan's 2nd goal was something like that. Milan players casually trading passes, the ball slowly nearing Barca's defense before Donadoni suddenly zig-zagging through the whole Barca's defense before squaring a pass to Massaro. We had a team like Barca (CL 92 winner who won probably 4 La Liga tittle in a row under Cruyff) hopelessly watching our play! There was nothing they could do to stop us. The victory was considered sweeter than the 4-0 CL 89 win vs Steaua because the game was considered as a mere formality after the way Milan trashed Real Madrid in the semis.
Comment from the coach:
Capello : I considered it as nothing but a win. Milan is so used to winning matches (when he was asked why he was so calmed, hands still folded and not celebrating the goals)
Cruyff : if you want to got hit by a car, might as well got hit by a Ferrari.
Best off the pitch moment :
Baresi wearing a suit, smiling so wide and eyes beaming minutes before the game's over. MvBasten, wearing a lotto jacket, smiling and rubbing his hands in excitement, knowing Milan has beaten the club coached by his mentor.
I still feel emotional remembering the game
Obviously Gaizka can tell you this. Let me summarize the the 1994 European cup final with a quote that occured a day before the final in Athens. The quote comes from the Barcelona coach at that time, the legendary Johan Cruijff.radioactivenerd said:^^^^lol i remember that!
I had asked someone to tell me why the 1994 CL 4-0 victory was supposed to be so special, and that was Gaizka's answer!

Almost had tears in my eyes that day mangaizka22 said:Just want to share something that I believe many of us sometimes feel.
Just last nite I was showing something in my laptop to my cousin and she noticed that there are sooo many Milan-related files there. She just coulnd't understand how I could be so passionate and obsessive about something for the last 17 years (I'm nearly 30). I told her that my favorite music group (Genesis and Gn'R) either stopped recording or broke up and my favorite movie star (De Niro and Al Pacino) are getting old. And it got me seriously thinking.
How could you possibly tell someone that doesn't understand any of these things? How a winning game is enough to make you smile and beaming for 1 whole week? That a losing a game is a bigger concern than an unpaid electricity bills or unfinished project at work? That winning the scudetto could be the only positive thing in a 9 month-stretch of shitty life (that's what I felt for the 99 scudetto)? How you could fall in love with something for more than half your life while the object of desire doesn't even know it?
Is it unrecruited love? Is it unhealthy obsession? Is it passion? I mean, we sometimes could turn our back on our loved ones (I drove my GF early whenever Milan game is on TV every Sunday) out of anger or disappointment. But never this AC Milan team. It's gotta be more than that. What insanity that drove us to that point? What magic or spell?
In the book Fever Pitch (highly recommended for every soccer fan regardless of the team supported) by Nick Hornby (a rabid Arsenal fans), he dedicated the book to (tried to remember the exact words) :
"the fans who sometimes - during a normal conversation or at a serious meeting at work or at any important events in life - found themselves daydreaming and smiling about some right footed match winning goal that went to the top corner some 15 years ago". How true!
Please don't think this post as self-glorifying, like as if I'm trying to proclaim that I'm the biggest fans out there or like I know everything there is to know about the team or about being a fan. I just wrote this because I know you understand what I feel and more importantly because we all have the same love relationship with Milan.
wow just saw that post - thank you for the post gaizka.gaizka22 said:Kyara and Donie, thanks for quoting my post. Glad to know that my post could add some knowledge to fellow Milan fans or struck a chord in our collective minds. Weeks ago I was actually trying to locate the post quoted by Kyara, thanks for finding it for me.

I am italian and i am probably spoiled, living here i get all the MILAN i need and because of this, when i discovered this forum (this afternoon) reading trough the pages i got tears going down my eyes seeing how much You All love MILAN even if u live far away, even if u can't be close, you still support....you still do more, much more than some fans here in italy do for our team. That is the special feature of our beloved team that gets fans everywhere no matter how far...You all represent how fans love MILAN and how MILAN loves YOU all for being this close to us anytime....
I signed the petition..i was the number 2705 and i spreaded this link to all milan fans i know in italy hoping that number will grow more and more...
I wanna say a special Thanx to Kyara and all of them who worked togheter for this petition and a Thanx to all the rest of you that keep supporting our team everyday everytime, it makes me feel PROUD of supporting such a great team like ours, with such great FANS LIKE YOU.
About Sheva, i wanna invite people to don't judge him now, in postive or in negative, now that he's still with us and probably still thinking abt what 2 do....i invite You to just ask him to stay....to stay forever with us becouse, there are millions of reasons for him to stay but i just wanna express all this reasons in one....
MILAN IS SHEVA AND SHEVA IS MILAN...
Ps: sorry for my bad english and for the way i wrote it...but i wrote it just following the flow of emotions i have inside. You all hit me straight in my heart and to all the other italian MILANISTI.....GRAZIE ANCORA
oopsy, I just realized I wrote "carpet"---it was folder (carpet it would like in spanish, I'm really sucking at my english skills lately, but my espanglish is doing great apparently ), well, maybe on june I'll make a Milan carpet, I have a lot of newspapper pics saved.Kyara said:Can I see?
No worries. I just wish I could unearth more of your craftsmanship. Throwing modesty out of the forum for a second, I have a few posts I felt proud of after penning, but it seems to me they were many years ago....I would have to dig deep to find them.gaizka22 said:Kyara and Donie, thanks for quoting my post.

I don't recall that!!! Possible I was inebriated while positing. It happens from time to time.zZ[-_-]Zz said:@ DonippoKakaGourdini...
i would nominate that post in which you addressed me as "quadruple z"... it is a pity it got deleted amidst the chaos...
mad4milan said:I didn't see the match so I can't comment on it, but it's nice to hear that Serginho & Redondo's fitness are very much better
Didn't people say that Borriello was the next Van Basten??
MilanoMichael said:Ah yes, I forgot that every midfielder has to attack(lie). Rino is so stupid(lie), only an idiot would think of actually playing defense(lie).
You are absolutely right(lie)! We should sell Rino because he isn't good enough on ATTACKS (lie). The notion of a midfielder playing defense is absurd(lie)!
I suspect the next person you want to get rid of is Dida, because he doesn't score goals like Palop?
Seriously, stop acting like an "expert" on football. I bet all you care about are "Goals, Goals, GOALS!" The basic concept of football can be divided into 4 General groups:
