        yay, we kick-off with some bashing! from a totally expected source!

        Dan: the irony of the picture you posted being from an article about UK government action on British bribery is not lost on me ...

          If Ricardo Kaka flops at Real Madrid, and returns to Italy, would he want to go back to AC Milan? OR would he choose Inter?

            if? he has ...

            anyway: Pirlo, Seedorf, Crespo, Vieri, Ronaldo, and now Zlatan -- that's a list that Moratti wants "revenge" for, and he targeted Ricky Kaká for that reason ...

            but Moratti thinks he's found his own Ricky Kaká in his new signing Ricky Álvarez, so he's not that interested now ...

              Alvarez is quality, and has shown so much already in the preseason matches...

              Kaka's problems at Madrid weren't entirely his fault, as he missed a lot through injury, and during that period the playing style and personnel changed quite a lot.

              Anyway, back to the original question, I highly doubt he'd go to Inter.
              INTER, SPURS, HEART

                Okay, seriously, why in the ******* **** would Javier Pastore even entertain an offer from PSG?

                  Money, perhaps?

                  Stekelenburg to Roma, BTW. Thoughts? Don't know if the Serie A is the right league for him. Van Der Sar also failed at Juventus after he left Ajax. Anyway all the best to him, hope he does well.

                    I assume they pay more than Palermo, certainly, but Pastore could go just about anywhere.

                      Nice! A new Calcio thread. Its a shame that Italian League year by year gets worse. Its not what it used to be and i feel sorry for that because, with Premier League, the Italian was the one that i enjoyed the most. Now Calcio is just like Nimreitz said, no more great football and magical moments. Its really bad at my sight...

                          he'll be fine ... I don't think the league has anything to do with goalkeeper performances ... language, maybe, but not the league ...

                          the only factor is the player's nationality / up-bringing -- in any league in Europe, errors may be forgiven for a local boy / youth product, while they will be mercilessly chastised when it's with a foreign purchase ... it's what happened with van der Sar, who iirc was the first non-Italian GK to play for Juve ... and consider too who Edwin's 2nd-year competition / eventual replacement was ...

                          1) Zamparini wanted (uncompromisingly) NOT to sell to an Italian team ... every time an Italian team came in, the price suddenly started jumping higher specifically for them;

                          2) Paris St-Germain has new Qatari owners, so can now outbid even the Chels for an elite player;

                          3) England is getting a little saturated with billionaire owners, so new prospectors want to build Champions-League-winning teams elsewhere in Europe, especially countries with more all-round appeal;

                          4) Leonardo, one of the few remaining a real gentleman of football (along with guys like Luis Figo), was brought on specifically to sell the idea of the Paris revolution project to top players ... where else would Leonardo start the process but in Italy?

                              a gentleman's accord is only valid when 2 gentlemen are involved ... Nuńez was out-bound, and Gaspart is closer to a donkey than a gentleman ...
