He used to play at LB, and he was much better in that position, maybe doen't push forward much but very solid for the LB position.

And Bonera at LB doesn't even make sense, he struggles on the right and he a naturally right footed player. So when he's on the left it's twice as hard for him in that position.

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

[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.]

Ever since the back injury two weeks ago, Dida hasn't been mentioned on acmilan.com at all. Is he being punished for something we don't know about? (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/mad.gif)

They're just getting us used to Milan without Dida. I can't say I don't miss him...

Plautz was the referee in the European Super Cup game between Milan and Sevilla. And if my memory serves me correctly, he also officiated the match between Milan and Celtic, the one in which Maldini had a handball, and he didn't give the penalty. Respect! (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)

Overall, he's a good, solid choice, and like you brings up good memories for me too.

Yeah, I'm concerned too. Admittedly, Kalac has been performing rather solidly, and I'm afraid we won't be seeing Dida unless the Australian makes a couple of big mistakes - which going by his previous record might be right around the corner. Unless he's improved drastically. As much as I like Dida, and what he's done for the club, I can't help but deny the good work put in by the number 2. (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/sad.gif) I do hope everything works out well for everyone. We all want to see Milan do well, nonetheless.

By the way, love your new signature, Miz.

Maldini wants the title. We won't loose..

I'd give anything for this year's European cup for Paolo, since this will be his last season. Not to mention he'll become the first captain to successfully defend the cup, plus the most successful captain (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/king.gif) (he's currently tied with three, though I may be wrong here).

In short, the only thing better than winning the cup would be the man himself, or his 23-year career (for that matter). Though admittedly, deep down in my heart I'm a tad scared myself. (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif) With the string of performances we've been putting up, and the scoreless draw in England, it might only take one goal to screw everything. Oh, Ronaldo, where art thou?

I wouldn't be surprised. Maybe they should start doing the same thing with Gila.

Plautz also officiated the PSV match we drew at home in the '05-06 CL, during which Jaap Stam was seen yelling some colorful metaphors (in English, no less) at him.

Thanks. I wish it could be a happier one.

He has won two as captain. In '03 and '07.

Me too. But Dida's a champion, he will lift himself and come back. Just look at Ronaldo, how many time he's been down, or Maldini for that matter. Whatever happens, happens for a good reason. Unless your name is Simic - in which case you're doomed and cursed to never play and lose your NT spot in the process.

Thought so. Still one more for Paolo, Rossoneri, one more for the man! (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/devil.gif)

Yes, considerably. And Francisco Gento is the only player to be on 6 Champions Cup-winning sides. I still count the 2005 ours, but that's just me. (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/goodheart.gif) Paolo does have a chance to climb the record books even further, but this might be the toughest considering our squad and the opposing teams that we might draw against going forward. Speaking of longevity saw this on Wikipedia:

Paolo Maldini of AC Milan is the oldest (at 37 years old) player to score in a Champions League final, doing so in 2005. He is also the only player to play in the final of, and win the European Cup and the Champions League in three different decades: 1988-89, 1989-90, 1993-94, 2002-03 and 2006-07.

He's a legend of the game, not just for us Rossoneri, but for most of the footballing world. It'll be interesting to see what Galliani and co do in the summer to try and replace him (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/king.gif)

The bookies have made us strong favourites for this game, but I'm not so sure. I know we can beat Arsenal, but our current form isn't showing that and we'll need to match the performance against Utd last season to progress. Hopefully the San Siro will be rocking (did anyone manage to get a ticket?)
