I don't see it man. Aquilani never really managed to impress and never played a important role. Monto was important for Fiorentina and had a bigger role in the NT as well.

Monto was appalling for us. Not interested if he brought peace to the middle east for Fiorentina, for us he was awful.

The only player worse than him was Aquilani, who was up there with Bertolacci.

Nooo, Monto/Aquilani were gods compared to Bertolacci. Aquilani, I think was the most talented of the two but he was never able to fulfill this talent for some weird reasons. He also had some good days with Liverpool...so I would take him over Monto, anytime of the day.

Aquilani had a very decent season with us. I was sad to see us not signing him after the loan end.

Remember that we used to bench him because we didn't want him to reach 25 presences in the league, which would have automatically activated the clause in the contract for us to obligatorily sign him?

Oh, Galliani, you were such a sad loser...

I disagree. I thought he did fairly well with us. With van Bommel, Aquilani, Nocerino and Boateng we had a pretty decent and balanced midfield back then. But they didn't play together as much as I would have wanted due to injuries and asinine decisions by Allegri.

I liked Aquilani. I don't think he ever got a chance. As for Monto, my brother is a Fiorentina fan, so I followed him before he became a Milan player. He was ok there, but never really stepped up to the level of a top player.

So two of us like Aquilani and two of us don't.

We need a fifth entrant to decide this one (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Van Bommel was rotten for us. Aquilani was terrible. Nocerino was garbage. And Boateng was an impact player who could score but didn't function well as a trequartista at all. Despite sort of playing as one.

Ah memories...

Van Bommel rotten? I wholeheartedly disagree. He was pretty good.

Aquilani I've already expressed my opinion.

Nocerino scored 10 goals in his first season with us, thanks to his great partnership with Ibra. Afterwards, yes, he was garbage.

Agreed about Boateng.

I'm a little unsure about this. Great is pushing it imo.

We got him in the twilight of his career, and I recall Ambrosini often being a better choice after MVB arrived.

Maybe rotten was harsh, but I'm not convinced he was much more than average.

I remember MvB stepping up, connecting our midfield with his style. Gattuso was already gone, while Ambro was in decline. Out of all DM players available, I think he was our best solution. He also tended to play good against strong opponents.

+1

The only downside of signing van Bommel was that his presence and good performances sort of pushed Pirlo out.
