Pirlo

Good thread, but sad to see Milan in such a state. They're a great club.

I loved the Milan side in the mid 00s - Cafu, Maldini, Nesta, Stam, Ambrosini, Gattuso, Rui Costa, Pirlo, Seedorf, Kaka, Shevchenko, Super Pippo, Crespo etc.

I watched them last night and was only familiar with Bonucci, Montolivo (an unused sub) and that useless Kalinic.

Sad to see.

I think they may have been demoted because of match fixing back then. The Milan defence in the late 80's, early 90's of Baresi, Maldini, Tassotti and Costacurta is the greatest back 4 of all time in my opinion.

AC played so badly last night that Cork City would have put 5 past them.

Such a shame. They were once a force to be reckoned with.

you can sing that my friend. The longevity of them as well, those lads only hit their peak when other players were fading away at the same age.

The Chinese fella has borrowed over half a billion to buy them and finance last summers splurge and allegedly doesn't have a pot to piss in. Big concerns about what will happen again in the summer. A pity as Gattuso has steadied the ship from the early season form.

A joy when I was younger watching that Milan team on a Sunday in the late 80's / 90's . Good memories
