Just quickly jumping in to let you know that Galliani has just made it official on the Domenica Sportiva 10 minutes ago : Jaap Stam is a Milan player.


Cafu-Stam-Nesta-Maldini.

SAY NO MORE.


Also Paolino declined Trap's last invitation to make the trip to Portugal :down:.

In a year or two Milan is going to have the same problem Juve has now. Stam will be what, 33-34, Maldini 37-38, Cafu 37, Nesta 30?

Excellent post. We will not have wait for too long. You cannot have more than one season without injury trouble.

Two - three starting players injured- bonds are breaking apart- this team will start losing.

Yup. Stam turns 32 in July, he will quit his international career after Euro2004 (he stated the other day, might change his mind of course but I can't see that happening).

Screw Cafu and play Stam at right back so that the Maldini/Nesta partnership isn't broken up and so that Pancaro can start on the left side of defence.

Either would work very well, but Pancaro :thumb:

I can see Stam playing at his current level for at least another two seasons.

Cafu will be 34 by the end of June. Nesta is still only 28. All we need to do is buy one good defender next season and another one the season after.

Actually that's why I consider Stam to be an excellent buying : he can play both in the centre and on the right, just like Paolo on the left side. Now we have at least two quality players for each position in defence.

The Stam/Nesta partnership did wonders at Lazio.

What we can also do is play a 3 men defence (Stam-Nesta-Maldini) and let the likes of Cafu or Serginho run free on their respective flanks.
