But hey, still rather have Casillas instead of Muslera, that is for sure.


That just shows how awful your understanding of football is :) nothing wrong with that. We all know about it.

Bacca did well in Italy, Jackson failed in Atletico. We can speculate that he'd fail in Milan or that he wouldn't, but it'd be just that, speculation

One thing is for sure, he proved he's not a top striker. Top players don't flop that badly. I don't think he socks though. He did well in the CL so it wasn't just the weak Portuguese league


If he is not scoring in Spanish League, no way he can score in Serie A with a much weaker team bruh.

Yes. He came to the team, Inter shipped your world class player Guarin's ass to China for him. What else can we talk about? :)

Drogba was also a top-3 striker in the world for a long time, not in Gala tought.

Lets not talk about (the lack of) memorable moments.
The conversation would be funny.

Being the most successful team in the country has 1 Uefa Cup in Europe. Yay.

Yes, if winning 20 championships in the last 30 years and having more European / Internacional cups than the other 2 rivals combined is being the 2º team of the country...

Yeah, im fine with that.

What else ?

Yeah even down a man Benfica is still pressing. Maritimo is doing absolutely nothing with their few chances. Poor shots
