Hopefully Janku is okay, he had to leave at HT with injury.

Is there anybody on the team who hasn't had to do that this season? (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/innocent.gif)

Wenger: We Won't Be Out To Kill Kaka!


While commenting extensively on the hotly anticipated return-leg at the San Siro between Arsenal and AC Milan on Tuesday, Arsene Wenger has insisted that his team will not resort to he same type of henchmen tactics that so many Serie A teams have adopted to try to deal with the threat of Kaka - especially after seeing one of his own players literally almost lose his foot as the result of that type of 'take no prisoners' defending.


The Brazilian World Player of the Year has become an obvious target for defenders, man-markers, and hardmen of the game, and there are growing fears that he could pay the ultimate price by way of an early retirement if something isn't done to protect him.

Despite the fact that Kaka could kill Wenger's best laid plans for Champions League glory with a solitary stroke of genius, the French tactician shudders at the thought of resorting to violence to counter his brilliance.

Wenger said: "In Italy, what do the teams do who play against Milan? They take Kaka, get him out of the game.

"We will play zonal and will not mark him man to man. We will be faithful to what we do usually.

"We will try to get him out of the game by cutting the connections with him.

"If you kick the great players out of the game, why should people go to watch football?

"Great players make football a bit special, they make it art. If you are there to kill them, it is not acceptable."

The tie is on a knife's edge as a result of the scoreless stalemate at the Emirates Stadium, but Wenger knows that Milan can be a different kind of monster at home. (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/devil.gif)

"We have to be tight defensively, because they tore Man United apart in the first 20 minutes of the second leg at the San Siro last season," he added.

"It is important for us to start strongly in defence, but also not to hide.

"What is good from the first result is we know every time we get the ball we are incited to go for a goal.

"I do not like to go away from home thinking your team just has to defend. With a 0-0 result, we know that we have to attack as well.

"From the first game, we have the belief we can beat them because we dominated the game - that always has an impact on the second game.

"We will need patience against them, but our pace can be a good asset.

"Milan have shown in Europe that they can deal with all sorts of opposition, they can slow the game down," Wenger reflected.

"What Milan do well is put you to their pace, and when Kaka gets the ball they can have sudden acceleration which can kill you.

"We will have to adapt to that because we like to play always at a high pace."

^^

The best formation we can have right now, taking into account Carlo's tactics.

There is just one thing we have to make sure of... Gila should be equipped with radiators to heat those benches. (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Why would he want to do something like that when he has Brocchinho available?

(from the news ticker on acmilan.com's italian page)

NESTA, PIRLO E KAKA': IL PUNTO
02/03/2008
MILANELLO - Sandro Nesta, Andrea Pirlo e Ricky Kakà hanno svolto l'intero allenamento odierno con i compagni, partecipando anche alla partitella. I tre giocatori stanno meglio e saranno a disposizione per martedì. Lo conferma anche il coordinatore sanitario del Milan, Jean Pierre Meersseman, che ha spiegato che gli ultimi test sostenuti dai tre rossoneri hanno dato esito positivo.

[Nesta, Pirlo, and Kaka took part in training today, also including the practice game. The three players are better and will be available Tuesday. Dr. Meersseman, the team doctor, also confirmed this, saying that the most recent tests on the players gave positive results.]

LE CONDIZIONI DEGLI ALTRI INFORTUNATI
02/03/2008
MILANELLO - Lo stesso coordinatore sanitario del Milan ha anche aggiunto che nel dopo partita di ieri Pato si è fermato più a lungo nello spogliatoio per alleviare il dolore provocato da una botta al ginocchio subita nel corso di Milan-Lazio. Il brasiliano oggi stava meglio e per domani sarà a posto. Durante la gara di ieri, Clarence Seedorf è stato costretto ad abbandonare il terreno di gioco anzitempo per un problema muscolare e resta in dubbio per martedì. Emerson, alle prese con il riacutizzarsi di un problema cronico alle tibie, si deve fermare. Per quanto riguarda Jankulovski, Marek contro l'Arsenal non ci sarà, l'obiettivo è rivederlo contro l'Empoli.

[Dr. Meersseman also noted that after yesterday's game, Pato stayed in the dressing room to alleviate pain from a knock to the knee he sustained during the Milan-Laizo game. The Brazilian is better and tomorrow will traiin with the team. During yesterday's game, Clarence Seedorfe had to elave the pitch due to a muscular problem and remains in doubt for Tuesday. Emerson is experiencing a chronic problem with is tibia and should rest. Jankulovski will not be available against Arsenal; the objective is to see him back for the game against Empoli.]

Why do i feel like we are going to lose this game? either way its gonna be good for us: a win will be a positive defence of our title, if we lose most likely the management will do something about rejuvenating the squad.

Reminded me of a quote from Raging Bull; "... if you lose, you still win. there's no way you're gonna lose this one...".

Have the same feeling

As for who starts at LB, I want Kaladze there. Maldini should start in the center next to Nesta
