Why is his name wrong in the title of this thread?

MvB, Marco van Basten

With the upcoming Napoli tie and Sanchez poker let's take a trip down the memory line to Van Basten poker:

Great post Jasper! Thanks for the vote of confidence, it made me feel better about tomorrow's game and it was great to see MvB score some spectacular goals back in the day! :D

Remember a game beetwen Napoli and Milan.. that Galli was playing with a broken hip. In certain moment someone take shoot against his goal.. he jumps to defend and fall sitting down.. everybody stop and looked at him with his eyes wide open and scared..
then he starts to laugh like crazy..

I was 2-7 years old when the real clashes against Napoli happened so I don't think I ever saw it. Haven't caught it on DVD as well. :) Maybe Wet or Gaizka remember it.

Not surprised about those MVB comments.

He is a serious pro and would never switch the divide like some players and managers.

It's like Raul going to Barca or Guardiola @ Madrid

So many amazing memories i remember watching Milan games in complete awe of Marco Van Basten and Marco's farewell brought a tear to my eye it was such a tragic end to an unbelievable players career :cry:

Yeah, we had some legends. I can't really see the next one (after Maldini). Kaka could have been, but he wanted more and now he has nothing "except money". Maybe TS !?

so, I think that Van Basten is probably the most complete CF of all time, and is exactly what I would pick if I was making a prototype striker. What does everyone else think?

Most graceful and elegant forward ever. I was lucky enough to seen him play.

he was perfect, tall, fast, great shot, two footed, great aerial ability, skill, everything you could ask for



some of these goals just make me go :eek:



this is in a tribute game a few years ago, how many players didnt have the ability to do that at 22, much less 42

Marco Van Basten’s word quoted in today’s La Gazzetta dello Sport:

“Milan are not at the level of the teams fighting it out for the Champions League trophy, but the club is building a real team and the Rossoneri are going to be able to match the best. Ibra? He’s won plenty of championship titles with different teams, all big European clubs. This means he’s one of the greatest players in Europe. Ibra is a rock, a magnificent athlete. He can hold up the attack on his own. Definitely, he’s a key player but now he doesn’t seem to be mentally fresh. He’s potent, full of competitive fury. He always looks for one-twos, he’s a great player who needs to find the right to team to be able give his best. And now he has found it: this Milan side has technique and will keep improving”.

Van Basten knows a lot about Milan (but not as much as Baresi or Paolo of course) and I do agree with him on this note. We are starting off nicely, but we will soon progress into one of the best clubs in Europe again! :D

FORZA VAN BASTEN! :star::star:
