    2008 Friendlies

    I'm not sure if you can get it in the US but there's a great tournement tonight. Inter-Milan-Juve 45 minutes each in Torino 8:30 pm Italian time which should be 2:30 eastern. I love this concept that the Italians have with 3 teams playing each other on the same night.

    I would love to see this, but I don't think it's going to be on over here. I'll have to check it out.

    I saw the goals and the least I can say is Milan still has serious problems at GK.

    Really? Last season he was pretty solid. He was a lot more reliable than Dida, anyway.

    This is what I didn't understand about the Ronaldinho signing, sure he's (or maybe was?) a great player but buying him when you have Kaka who plays a similar role and no goalkeeper just doesn't make sense to me...

    I think Milan are going to regret not signing a top class goalie this off season.

    I agree with that, I think GK should have been on the top of Milan's priority list.

    On the plus side, they finally came out with a nice kit this year. I'm going to ask for a long sleeve Milan shirt for my birthday next month.

    I love your analysis of the off season:
    No GK: -1
    Awesome jersey: +1

    Overall: Par

    LOL

    Did Boruc sign for anyone or is he still at Celtic?

    He was very impressive in the Euros

    Yeah, that sounds about right, haha

    Honestly though, Milan's got a lot more problems than just GK. Their top defensive guys are getting really old, and Pirlo and Gattuso were invisible during Euro '08 (and that was before they were suspended from what was their final game.

    Kaka, 'Dhino, and Pato better get together and score a TON of goals, because there's going to be a TON of goals scored against them.
