    Before Roberto Carlos, there was this guy, starting off with his epic FK vs Liverpool:

    That highlight reel of Moscardelli (update: 5 million views, here they come) surely belongs in this thread.
    He's retro, after all, by vocation and definition.
    By the way, Pisa will feature in the Serie C playoff, starting today with the first game of a two-legged derby toscano against Carrarese.
    And it will be retro time with Mosca, Ciccio Tavano and Big Mac Maccarone among the others (sitting on the bench or walking on the pitch).

    Cutolo too can be listed as a fetish among Serie B/C players, and legitimately so, considering that left foot of his.
    The second goal in that compilation, the one he scored for Padova at the Stadio Bentegodi in the derby veneto versus Verona (his former team), is worthy of a mention because it holds particular meaning, on multiple levels.
    A story of sweet revenge against the tifosi scaligeri for the little man from Naples.

    Branco --> Skurahvy and Pato Aguilera --> “Bring back attacking duos”, to create a topical association of ideas.

    Since I'm at it with the references, one of the most meaningful examples of players who had to make “gavetta” (literally, “mess tin”) in lower leagues until very late in their career, before getting an opportunity in Serie A (and absolutely nailing it, in his case, at 30 or something) will always be Dario “Tatanka” Hubner.
    A bison on the pitch and a triestino “made with an axe” out of it.
    All while behaving in spite of all the rhetoric concerning the healthy life of an athlete: plenty of cigarettes (including one at halftime), glasses of wine when it was the right time and a shot of grappa once in a while (or a bit more frequently).
    If all the eyes were on Ronaldo before Inter-Brescia 1997/98 (and, by extension, on the first Italian defender who had to mark him, Savino, with various interviews and dedicated profiles), Darione could have ruined the party and made the headlines on Monday with his own debut in "la massima serie"... if it weren't for Moratti's pupil making the entrance.
    Later, when significantly older, Hubner became Serie A top scorer with Piacenza, and all the convenient whatifs (regarding national team and top clubs) romantically added to his well-deserved legend.

    The most famous of them all is Toto Schillaci. Lega Pro/Serie B player that Juventus snatched for their first team and ended up top goalscorer of the World Cup within 13 months.

    Milan thought they'd repeat this with Lapadula
