Well...as long as they stay clear of Milan..I don't care what circus he pulls. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) It's really nice to see the big 4 meet up with someone who can take them on their own terms. I'm really happy with this deal. The hegemony is finally broken. Though now Arsenal and Liverpool are really up against it.

ditto, actually i'm kinda enjoying them go for it.

for me we dint make any bad transfers, it's more a matter of us making the wrong transfers. like the purchase of a WC CB or a natural rb to backup zambro was way more important than bringing back sheva.

Panucci went over the line, he was still considered in play as 1) The ref never gave him permissiong to leave or 2) The ball hadn't gone out of play. Down injured? Anybody can fake an injury to try and play someone offside, don't be so naive.
Panucci dragged him down by his neck..

Great save from Buffon, both keepers were very good in this game. But poor Italy, they're so hard done by all the time aren't they. (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)
*

so? they had a penalty denied when it was 1-0,

and had a perfectly good goal ruled out this game besides the countless small calls that were blown throughout the game.

and exactly how many times have italy seriously benefited from the refs? (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)

all i can think of is that grosso penalty and i've seen angles were theres CLEAR contact (ya he went down easy) but in that same game there a was iffy red card given to materazzi when italy was in control.

QUOTE
I think your completely mistaken on what i'm trying to say.  So i'll take some time an explain to you what i'm trying to say exactly.

Cafu for us is like ronaldo, sergio, dida, kaka, emerson.  Just another brazillian right?  It is true he may be 38 and is no way a suitable back up for oddo, a child knows that.
But the reason we signed a contract extension with him is not necessarily his skills on the field; it's what he does off the field that counts.  In brazil many consider him a legend.  Its like de rasario for us or razidsinki(sorry for spelling).  People look up to him for what he has achieved.  He is an icon in brazil and an icon for milan, which is why so many brazillians come to milan in the first place.  Do you know why pato chose milan, when chelsea and madrid were going to offer him more money?  The atmosphere.  His favorite players, ronaldo cafu and co are here.  He can easily adapt.


dont worry i know the importance of cafu

that said...

cafu isnt an icon of milan, he came at a kater stage of his career and gave his best for roma.

QUOTE
Cafu is also a very friendly guy and is the kind of guy who can persuade someone easily.  Its the reason why neves will choose us instead of another club and other brazillians we get in the future.  For that sole reason we sign an extension with him.


it's not like cafu is going to go to fellow brazilians and convince them all. besides having kaka and pato the future of brazils attack is enough to entice them to come.

QUOTE
Now going back to what you said earlier, 95% are signed by club statement.  Yes, that is true, however there is some exceptions to this.  Our current coach will not put in a 22 year old in the place of oddo simply because of the amount of responsibility oddo has.  He has to run up and contribute to the attack with amazing crosses and be fast enough to defend.  Thats why cafu was so effective for us is because he could do both perfectly.  Now your saying we should sign some young player to take oddo's role?  Not gonna happen.  It would be a waste of a transfer because at max carlo would give him 20 minutes a game.  Thats not enough for someone to grow as you can see in gourcuff for an example.  So signing zambrotta, someone who is already adapted to such responsibilites is the better choice than signing lets say some young 22 year old.  There are some exceptions like lahm and alves but lets be realistic, were not gonna spend 30+ million euros to sign them.  Were not madrid.
The reason we have been using cafu for 3 years is because he was still good.  You can't say oh he is over 30 so now he is automatically trash and lets dump him.  We aren't madrid (yes i dislike madrid).  They have been holding off his replacement because he was still able to keep up with the world's best.  hence why we were doing so good in the past. 

i never said he would have th be young, i said he could be established and if he was young i wouldnt expect him to start. the point is cafu is taking up a valuable spot for a prospect.

QUOTE
I was guessing when i said he hasn't played for 5 months because he really doesnt play.

Now lets be realistic here.  Galliani will not say oh we have cafu so we don't need another rb/lb.  That won't happen.  Its not fifa 08. 
So if you get my point- cafu here as a player is horrible, as a brazillian icon=win/win.

of course he plays, hes oddo's sub. now it's true he does get much play but it's not oddo plays every minute of every game. and we can all see the arvse effects of always playing the same players as our team is burnt.

and yes i can easily say galliani saying that and then following thru, because thats been the trend recently.

QUOTE (Bluesummers @ Mar 19 2008, 10:33 PM)
i disagree with you.  I think there only better than us in the attack and goalkeeping positions of the field.  Otherwise imo we have much better players everywhere else.
The depth issue helps them alot.  They have a solid bench where as we have broccadinho.  Thats the only real differences i see.
*

maicon is 10x better than oddo + plus they have zanetti

materazzi has been playing at nesta's level for the past couple of seasons, then the rest of the INter defenders (samuel,chivu,cordoba) much better than anything we have (bonera,kaladze :rolleyes...)

chivu/maxwell better than our janku/favalli

i'd say their defense is much better than ours, just watch them play they rarely conceed nor to they make stupid mistakes.

i'd say besides pirlo and kaka their whole midfield better than ours.

QUOTE (Bluesummers @ Mar 19 2008, 10:31 PM)
Lol you gotta lose this attitude that our board is like a program.  Insert A and you get B.  Its not like that.  Cafu hasn't played a game in 5 months and he is just here to pass on experience like sergio etc..  Were signing zambrotta in the summer and we have grimi on loan who is improving everyday.  We can't just sign someone for our Rb and say grow and become good.  Our tactical system depends on the RB and LB attacking and delivering crosses.  So 95% they'll play every game and rarely get subbed.  Oddo is an example (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)
so there is no point to really signing someone who is young, if there not gonna play.  They'll turn out like gourcuff  (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)
*

what you just said there doesnt make sense but i know what ur trying to say. i find it funny that you think i see this as fifa 08 or something when in one of ur last posts ur making mention of ur signings in the game, and i've seen plenty of posts listing all the players we need and who needs to go out so i dont see how you can accuse me of this.

btw ur statement that he hasnt played in 5 months is completly false.

95% of the players for most teams are not produced by the club but our signings, so yess you do sign players and let them become "good".

the tactical system of team has little or no bearing on how much everyone plays, the fact that oddo plays so much is cuz we dont have anyone decent to come in for him.

if you dont understand by now that for the past 3 years we've been holding on o the same guys to avoid going out and getting others then just give up. if cafu is here to be a mentor for the brazilians it would have to be for a young ones and pato is the only young brazlian we have, kaka isnt young anymore and cafu is not a striker coach nor is he an expert in the field. to let his contract run out and not renew would be forcing him out of the club.

dude.... they have better players in thevery position except the play making positions (kaka and pirlo) and maybe nesta at CB (altough he is obviously on the decline) besides the fact that they have tones of depth and we dont have an ounce of it. i agree inter arent as good as their record suggests and have had help from the refs but it doesnt change the fact that they are better than everyone else in serie a and light years ahead of milan

They scored twice pretty early due to terrible defending.  We are actually playing with urgency but we aren't making anything good happen.  They counter and our defense (especially Kaladze and Jankulovski) are playing terrible.  Nesta is at least making an effort.  Paloschi and Pato have played well but Sampdoria have 8 men in the box at all times.
*

they showed urgency only once we were down 2-0, we certainly dint start the game off like that. and they keep counter attacking cuz our midfield keeps giving it away 9especailly seedorf).
