Couple of brilliant strikes there!

Always liked the look of him when he was at Pompey too.

To think he got rushed out of Hertha by our management.

And his brother too!!!

Still have the picture of me and a young 18 or 19-year old Jerome Boateng during training.  He was a monster of a man and I always thought that he would become a world-class defender.  He's not quite there yet but he's certainly in the right team.

I thought that he was a bit hit and miss at Pompey. He got better when given a free role but I didnt think he had anywhere near the consistency required.

He did look good at the WC but I'd have thought most people were surprised when Milan "signed" him.

The first 2 though at the weekend were quality strikes; as was his in the CL last week.

On the thread's general topic though, early to mid 90's Italian football on 4 was quality.

We used to go round my grandma's for Sunday lunch the after it all the grown-ups would fall asleep so the tele would be left on C4.

That was the only foreign footy on tv here so I think a generation (well 5-10 years worth!) of people grew up with Italian based players as their "exotic" heroes.

Gazzetta on Saturday morning was quality as well.

I always used to think that James Richarson had the best job in the world. To be fair, even having grown up, I'd be hard pushed to think of a better one now.

Top post.

The everlasting memory i've got of Gazetta is Richardson sat outside some cafe underneath the San Siro, bright blue sky, cappacino and continental breaki on the table, lovely and warm whilst perusing Gazetto Della Sport in between ogling stunning looking women.

Yeah, like you say, he really did have it good for a while.

And the generation you speak of were when the only interet I had in life was football.

Lentini, Baggio, Maldini, Weah etc. Great times.

I always remember Lentini being the worlds most expensive transfer in the world for 13.5m at the time and then fucking his leg up after a month after and barely played again.
Stealth ya flaming galargh!!!

I recall you uploading the pictures of your visit to a stadium/training ground, possibly at there? Or was it in Holland?

It was on the training ground in Berlin.

Yeah that's the kind of thing I'm talking about.

Every now and again he'd swap the pastries for a massive ice-cream which he'd have to be careful not to knock over when he was swapping sports papers to translate the next headline!

Very sad news regarding Gattuso, has been diagnosed with sixth nerve palsy, a disorder associated with the dysfunction of cranial nerve VI, which controls eye movement.

He's now practically blind in his left eye, it occurred in the opening game of the season against Lazio, but only a few days ago was he diagnosed.

If his operation is a success, but he needs an eye patch to play should he be allowed? Or will his 'disability' make it a no go?

Dean Shiels has played the entirety of his career blind in one eye as has former Reading midfielder Bobby Convey, so it should be possible.
