I like this post on Ribery:


Vernetti: He´s totally over-rated anyway. "The new Zidane" !?! What a load of crap.​

they weren't wrong... Ribery was great but not close to Zidane

in about 10 years someone will dig up posts like "Leao is the new Henry" and have a laugh too :D

If footballing success were a marathon, it seems that only the biggest can sustainably keep running. Serie A have been blessed with so many amazing teams from various clubs outside of Juve, Milan, and Inter, since the 80s - Sampdoria, Napoli, Fiorentina, Roma, Lazio, Parma. But at some point, all of these clubs have pushed as far as they could before running out of gas, some never to recover, whilst others remain competitive but still a tier or two below the Big Three.
Thats why serie a needs Napoli. 4th city able to compete with the strongest

What would you do with Samu?

I dont believe we could win in court, so i would make use of his lack of playtime, announce hes unfit, and make him train outside the team starting at 5am.

If he is late any time = not doing his part of contract. Penalties.

If we don’t make the CL I’ll be right there with you shouting #PioliOut
Pioli? I don't have too much issues with him :conf:


Aah so even if we don't make top 4 you won't blame management. What a good boy you are Mr. BRK :proud:

Good, let's keep the most useless player on the most critical position in the team and don't buy anyone. This club is really trying hard to miss top 4 at the end.


And now Juventus is close to Zakaria. :fp:

Why is Milan not the one who tried to bring him? Good player in the last 6 months of the contract, Zakaria + Pobega could be more than good for next season, without spending too much.

But he isn't unfit so he could sue and.... win in court.

I am not even sure he would agree to terminate his contract getting his full salary. He would probably still turn up for training and hound security to get in :lol::lol:

Just make him a director and send him on scouting trips to Spain and South America to pick up some more prospects we are going to flip quickly

Playing such games is the best way to hurt the club, Samu would win everything easily and Milan would gather a bad reputation.

So i said we need an AM or a RW more than we need a CD but that doesnt mean i will be sad if we signed a good CD.
WTF is Maldini doing ?!

Why? Dude has 18 months left. What’s the point in doing that? We need to accept he’s going to stay at least until the summer, let him train normally and we just don’t pick him unless it’s an emergency. I’m sure we can loan him if we pay a large portion of his wage, but apparently we don’t want to do that as he could be more useful to us at Milanello. He seems really well liked by the players too, so there’s really no reason to start unnecessary drama.

The squad is good enough for 4th place. If we fail to do so it would be on Pioli. You can blame management for choosing such a conservative target for the season, or you could accept it.

If you feel the squad should be targeting 1st place this season then the failure is on the management for not giving Pioli a squad good enough to do that, but nobody ever said we’re going for the title this season. That was a hope, but never the plan.

I know you meant it as a joke but I still feel it’s an important distinction to understand.

Good that there wasn't someone like @leaf in Hitler's team to doubt his plan of opening the 2nd front

imo Pioli deserves blame for the injuries

if that's the primary reason Milan is out of the scudetto race...
