Time will certainly tell... But he definitely has the qualities & the potential to become a great player. He's somewhat of a cross between Pirlo & Gattuso imo (obviously I mean their styles and not necessarily skill at this point).

He's quite young; just turned 20 in May, and debuted 3 years ago in Serie B with Brescia. So this is certainly a step up for him. He's a long time Milan fan, particularly of Gattuso growing up. He even called Gattuso asking him for permission to use his #8. Gattuso himself said he didn't need to ask, but understands the sentiments (as he too did the same with Donadoni).

He has also been praised by the likes of Totti to become a world class central midfielder.

So there's a lot of pressure and expectation, but it comes with the territory for quality players. So fingers crossed.


Sounds significantly (along with the stats) like he could do a lot better than us, and he joined because he's a Rossonero himself.

Those situations are always advantageous.

With all due respect to both of you, despite the fact one of you thinks I'm trolling, the primary function of an agent is to make money.

The reason you both dislike Raiola is he's VERY good at it, and he doesn't care about his clients, except to exploit them.

Well, welcome to the modern world.

The day we see poor little 100K a week footballers being defended because an agent is similarly good at making money out of them is a comical day.

And that day arrived! Woo!

Raiola is a dirty b*stard, the worst of his kind. He'll do anything to get as much $$$ as possible for himself and his clients.


So an agent working in the best interests of his clients and himself.

Imprison him immediately for being good at his job (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

PS this story seems, in UK anyway, to be originating from Sempre Milan. Which is, btw, some of the worst-written pile of cr*p I have ever seen.

Not sure how seriously I can take a site which says:

"According to a report from Calciomercato.com, the Welsh international is longer in Zidaneís plans...."

This guy is doing this for a living, and he can't even type.

Linked to Bale. I really hope that does not happen. This is no longer the same player who used to terrorized EPL. This is the player that refuses to go on matches and sleeps while he is on the bench. Injury prone and lazy. No thanks.


Completely totally and underly wrong. Bale has been treated absolutely horrifically by Zidane, probably some of the worst treatment I've ever seen. Typical for that disgusting club tbh, but especially bad for this one.

He wasn't sleeping on the bench, he wasn't in the squad and was sat in the stands and was pretending to sleep to mock the fact he'd been exiled.

He's a world class player but Zidane just didn't want him, and has been utterly vile in his treatment of the kid.

Bale has been completely professional, but his manager hasn't.

In short, if we could make Bale happen, we should 1,000,000% do it. He'd be the best player in the league.

Apparently we're determined to sign Bakayoko as well. That's a bit perplexing. Four starting mids for two roles? How's that gonna work out?


Any club aspiring to be serious will always have two top players for each position.

I think you're off with the remarks on Bakayoko.


Really? I just admit I'm wrong and you then join the party say 'you're wrong'?

Wow, real lack of class around here these days.

One quick google to find out if I was going mad and apparently not. This is the Bakayoko I saw.

What in godís name... Bakayoko was easily one of our best players two years ago. He would be a great addition.


Didn't impress me.

Bakayoko is sh*te. He was rotten for us. Can't understand why we want him back.

And interesting, remember how bad Ocampos was for us? Ended up valued at 40M at Sevilla.

Funny how it goes eh?

So an article on football Italia is saying that we have a budget of 30 mln for transfers. That's quite crap if true


Not sure I believe that.

Capello bigging up Morelos - I know Milan scouts watched him last season, suspect they're waiting till the end of the window to bid something.

He'll cost 20M Euros.

I'd give Ibra my other half if he wanted her. Fact is give the man what he wants, he's still the best player in Serie A.

What position does he play? Have to admit I know nothing about him


He's a 5ft 10 version of Ibra. Colombian. Very similar in many ways. More tempestuous.

Should point out he's at Rangers right now.

It really depends on the type of player we're talking about. Players like Ibra, Kaka, Ronaldo etc. are individual players who carry their teams and make things happen on their own.

Pirlo was a player who relied on the collective for his qualities to shine through. He was a deep-lying playmaker after all, the man furthest away from attack. And I repeat, his last few years with us were good. Not excellent, but not terrible either.


You're just making excuses now! His last few years were mediocre at best. Good players will always look like good players no matter what team they're in or what position. Thing is, even if I was to buy your reasoning, we won the league in 2011!

Funny thing is he only played half of that season and hey presto, we played well enough without him to win the league!

I don't deny all of this, but his form was poor in those last 3 or 4 years, however you try to word it.

Can't strictly make the excuse that it was a rubbish team, because class always shines through. Look how Ibra has single handedly dragged Milan up?

True, one of the worst mistakes made by Galliani among a whole lot of other mistakes

But you can't deny that Pirlo has been a little b!tch about Milan. His book especially was one huge whine fest


Funny thing is his form was pretty rotten by the time we let him go, which, yes, was a mistake, but then he goes to Juve and probably hits his career best form and becomes an intergalactic hero.

And yes, he was horrible about us, very petty, and it does sometimes feel like his post-Milan career was to spite us.

Is there an ounce of Milan left in Pirlo?

He seems to have just airbrushed us out of his entire career and is doing everything he can to violate the memories.

I did not deny that it factored into the good performances.

But, and it's a big but. You cannot deny the football or the fitness levels which have improved exponentially. I don't think this has anything to do with the stadium being empty, and more to do with the work the players and Pioli are putting in.

We haven't looked this physically fit or cohesive in years. We're outrunning teams in pretty much all the games we've played and considering the schedule, this was not an easy task.

It's easy to attribute this all to having no pressure but I just don't think that's entirely true. This just feels different to when we went on good runs under Rino or Montella or any of the other coaches we've had in recent years.

Obviously I could be wrong and we could bottle it in the first game of next season. But I don't think that will be the case.


Hopefully you're right Han, all I can say (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
