Pirlo was NEVER a DM.

He was a completely new position made more or less for him by Carlo in regista. I know our glory days are a bit behind us now but let's not turn Pirlo into something he definitely wasn't.

Guy couldn't defend for toffee (!)


He switched from trequartista in his Inter and Brescia days to playing in front of the defense for the rest of his career. His transformation is one of the biggest and most influential in recent football history. Call it whatever you want, but I was trying to make a point.

But Leao is a great prospect. His former coach at Sporting said a few days ago that hes shown the same potential that Cristiano had at his age. So, heres to hoping...

Same was told about Silva. I doubt that hes anywhere near that kind of talent but anyway... Is yet another prospect what we really need the most? Were a team filled with prospects and talents. Leao wont have the same immediate impact that Correa would have made. So I think its just another blunder.

Totally agreed. Unless we manage to sign Correa that is.

I must say Maldini and Boban disappointed me. Leonardo at least tried, he gave a fair chance with Higuain and especially signing Paqueta.

This summer has been a complete mess.

True, but I was just trying to be exact over what he was. And that wasn't a DM. You're dead right with your point, Carlo created a whole new brand of football with him.

It was as significant in the early noughties as Pep's tiki taka was a decade or so later.
