    well for my choice... i think that Cassano is the player to watch!
    he has already shown his skill and maturity and also has been dubbed as the next baggio!? anyone who is said to become as good as baggio must have talent!!! :D

    Well I haven't seen that much of Cassano so it's hard to tell. Maybe Roma will let him play more this season. The little I saw sure looks promising.

    I fancy Pirlo. He is going to be BIG! Hopfully Milan will help him with that already in this season :)

    Bonera is one of them as well. The next Nesta?

    I see many young talented plyaers.

    Of course our Matteo Brighi, Emiliano Moretti, Mauro Camoranesi, Manuele Blasi or Marco Zanchi.

    Then there is (of course) Cassano (well, he's a bighead, but a talented bighead :D ) , Fabio Gatti (Perugia), Generoso Rossi (Venezia), Bonera (Parma), Bellini (Atalanta), Ferrari (Parma), Paolo Cannavaro (Parma), Donati (Milan), Marchionni (very talented right - wing, Parma), Maccarone (just signed for Middlesborough [wrong spelling, I know :mad:]), Pirlo (Milan), Bonazzoli (Parma), Castellini (Toro), Dainelli (Hellas, but owned by Brescia), Lucchini (Ternana), Pinzi (Udinese), Iaquinta (Udinese), Pelizzoli (Roma) and Caracciolo (Brescia).

    I think that Enzo Maresca is a player to watch out for in the future. He played well when he played for Juventus last season and is starting this season with Piacenza and will get more game time, to show off his talents

    I don't think he played that well. Sure, he didn't get much chance, but still ... he always plays better for another club.

    I also think that Massimo Maccerone is a great player to watch out for, but im not happy about his transfer to Middlesborough. He would have had a greater chance of making the Italian side in the next few years if he stayed in Italy.

    I doubt that. If he stayed in some Seria A club, he would hardly get the chance to play (example Cassano), but in England he'll probably be a starter and therefor will have the opportunity to develop his game more quickly, not to mention constantly :)

    Let him come to Holland! Ajax could do with a decent striker anyway :D

    After seeing him in the U-21 European Championships I think this kid has what it takes to make it!

    It's Bonazzoli, not Bonazolli.

    He's a young striker, playin' (or sitting on the bench) for Parma. Quite tall, hence strong in the air.
