It was a question.
I want Pobega to shut down creative advance players rather than DMs.
He's literally is a Ambro clone. Maybe faster top speed. He passes and organizes well, he makes great penetrating runs. The only weakness he has is his acceleration.

Of course, no one knows if he will be able to step up when you are in the pressure spot of playing for Milan. But he seems like he has the mentality to do it. He's grown exponentially with each season. I watched him at Spezia and he's so much better than he was last year.

I mean, we have Albertini and Pobega clones on our hands.

Yes, in Torino, not Milan. @ Milan, you are required to do more offensively, and defensively you need to be fast on counters" which is not Pobega's best attribute. I hope he comes and proves me very very wrong, but everytime ive watched him, I dont get the feeling that he can start for us.
Pobega isn't slow. His acceleration is not good, but once he gets to top speed, he's like a train.

He's also great joining in the attack. He creates chaos in opposing boxes with his late runs, he scores goals, makes assists, all while he's the more defensive of their midfield pair.

I think he might have a shaky first season like Tonali, where we see flashes, but, he has tremendous potential. It wouldn't surprise me if he explodes here, either.

Maldini put a 40m price tag on the kid. He's talented.

I hope you are right.

Roma have more English players that Italian among their starters. Interesting

I remember quite a few people back in the day on here referred to Seedorf as "Slowdorf" during the end of his tenue.
Truth 👍🏽
Seeing all this Seedorf love when most of the forum was shitting on him to the end of his playing career and through most of his coaching career is wild. The real Seedorf fans like myself were definitely in the minority

I was a Seedorf fan as well. Truth is, he had a tendency to be invisible during 'unimportant' league matches against lower placed teams. Clarence was the definition of a big game player.

I think Seedorf's running style made him seem like he was taking things nonchalantly. Even at top speed, he ran upright. He really was an elegant player

It's weird which players get remembered for their primes and which players get remembered for the end of their careers.

Seedorf should be remembered as a fantastic player. He served us very well and helped us to win two CL's. Big dick, big game player.

He's scored so many screamers, but my favorite was the winner against Inter in that 3-2 comeback.

Because when you talk about past players you usually talk about them at the peak of their powers.

That's perfectly fine.

And it doesn't change the fact that in his final playing years in the league he was unbearable to watch many times.
Didn't have an issue with him as coach.

And it's really hard to blame them - a full set of champions that won it all multiple times but they were aging and as Tantalis rightfully said the squad didn't have any youth so the veterans languished.
