    "Fortunately for him, Milan requires all of their full backs to be atrocious defenders, so he fits the bill. The mistake prone Antonini currently occupies the position. He has carved out a habit of committing at least one irrevocable defensive gaffe per game. His positioning on the defensive end borders pathetic, and Luca doesn't even push forward as much as he did when Ronaldinho was prancing around the left wing in front of him."

    From ESPN Soccernet (I would post the link but I'm not yet to 30 posts. It's the Milan blogger on Soccernet, post titled Zlatmania.)

    Well, if Bale is back by then, I think he and Lennon might have some fun with Milan...

    To be fair, I've seen our fullbacks make some gaffes themselves before...

    I reckon Bale will be back for the Milan game, if or, when he is, I wonder what the odds are for another Bale hatrick.

    Yeah, but let's hope they turn up, because when they do they are brill.

    Then again, AC Milan don't tend to use wingers, so our weaknesses at fullback aren't as key as theirs, because we tend to use wing play as one of the main assets of our game.

    They're talking specifically about the new signing Didac Vila, but that is a fair statement concerning our LBs. At RB we're quite stable with Abate.

    Well, these are our fullbacks:

    - Antonini: he sucks but is fast, sometimes (50%) he is a good attacker, he almost scored a goal against ManU last year.
    - Abate: fast, fast, fast, he is growing into a nice player.
    - Bonera: sucks, just plain horrible, from time a time he shows good defensive skills.
    - Zambrotta: sucks, old as f**k, he was the worst again R.M.
    - Oddo: sucks, sucks, like shit.
    - Didac: He is not gonna play
    - Urby: same


    We will play with Abate and Antonini. If you're coach is smart, he will attack Antonini's side.
