For what it's worth, they don't show Venezia or Bologna either.
Vicenza Sergio, not Venezia :D

In my humble opinion, he is the greatest Italian player of all time, and had it not been for his niggling knee injuries, he'd have probably won a lot more.

Him, and Zidane, are my two favorite players, so I'm probably slightly biased :D

Shit. My bad. That would at least explain why there were no pictures of him in a Venezia kit

And those 3 knee injuries were far from niggling.

Hold on. Why is Baggio a Juve legend and the great Zidane is not? :shifty:
Legit question.

Both are legends of the game (which IMO automatically qualifies a player as a legend of every club he played for), both won Ballon d'Or and at least one major trophy here.

I agree. Zidane even won more trophies than Baggio, 5 of them, compared to Baggio's 3. And more significant ones. He was very unlucky not to win the CL with Juventus. And he didn't betray us to go on and play for 2 most disgusting clubs in the world, AC Milan and :inter2:

would you consider Thierry Henry or Edwin Van der Sar Juventus legends? :p
Ok, I don't consider those as legends of the game.
One is an Arsenal and France legend the other is an Ajax, MU, and Netherlands legend.

Pele, Maradona, Zidane, Baggio, Messi, Ronaldo, Buffon, Cruyff etc. -- this category, all time greats.

dunno, Henry won everything there is to win with club and country while being a class act and a legendary forward, I'd consider him a legend of the game. maybe not a contender for all time best like Zidane, but still a legend. Del Piero also proved himself only with Juventus and Italy, but that doesn't stop him from being a legend, does it?
Van Der Sar also was a pretty great goalie that is and will be remembered for some time, though I had to admit I added him more for the point I tried to make not because he's definitely a footie legend :D

Ma Vaffanculo :rolleyes: :andyandbarcelona: What betrayal?! We were the ones who disposed of him. He really wanted to play in the CL, and the season we secured qualification, guaranteed our seat back at the top table of European football, he was deemed excess to requirements and shipped to AC Milan. If anything, we were quite ruthless in dealing with him.

Not give him a new contract + Lippi forced him out, to accomodate DP, Vialli, Ravanelli trident.
Not that i'm complaining.

Come on man, if you're an Ajax legend of the 90s and a Man Utd legend of the 2000s then you're a legend of the game. Van Der Sar is surely up there with Oliver Kahn and in their generation. Behind Gigi but ahead of Cech and Casillas.

1st time i'm disagreeing with you...
Casillas surely one of the top GK all the time, for his thophy alone.
He's actually a great GK, not sure why many underrate him.

Even if that is true, why are people hating on il grande Zizou? Because he liked playing for Real Madrid? :howler: Bunch of phaggots. He gave his all to Juventus while he was here.

:tup: I wouldn't say Baggio is overrated but he has never won my heart. I prefer Alessandro Del Piero.

Still had a hard time to stomatch what Lippi did to him.
Kinda unforgiveable, 1st at Juve, 2nd at Inter.
Well good things was, he did leave those shithole, and end his playing career on Brescia with young Pirlo.
