the whole "milan looked after him" when he had the heart problem confuses me a bit

like is it a realistic alternative that they'd tell him to gtfo? no club would do that. i don't think a club deserves huge praise for that, it should be standard

if chivu wanted to leave after we helped him with his head injury i wouldn't have said he acted badly. if they want to go then they want to go. it's not "milan helped me with my heart problem now i can screw them over for the hell of it"... he wanted to go for genuine reasons

Thats what happens when you are filled with pessimism and fuck branca's all the summer. Now the optimism goes sky high and you say things like that.

I hope that you are aware that Cassano is not a better man now that he is at Inter and for sure he will do some crazy shit in here too. The deal was great but don't overreact so much.

Quote me when I've said a word about Branca the last ten years. QUOTE ME!!

And you talk about pessimism, and it's a bad thing, and bang, you are pessimistic yourself against Cassano, and I was celebrating. But yeah, I was the one who was pessimistic.

I'd disagree with this. I think him being at the club he LOVED as a boy will make him a better player. Crazy shit aside he's gonna want to prove to the fans how much he loves this club and go above and beyond for it, because he used to be one of us looking in bleeding the colors of this club. Now he gets to wear them finally I'd say he's probably going to be energized to play here.



Anyways welcome Cassano :D Happy to have you here and excited about what you may accomplish with us.

“THE SHIRT OF MY DREAMS.”

“I have always supported Inter. I want to do well here already starting this Sunday.”
Cassano chooses the number 99, jokes with Nagatomo, Moratti arrives to greet him.
He is on the UEFA list: will be there in the return leg against Vaslui.

Appiano Gentile – Antonio Cassano was not born in Ehime Prefecture and did not study in Tokyo. But yesterday morning he already seemed to be the best friend of Yuto Nagatomo. In his first training session as an Inter player, he made several jokes with the Japanese. It lasted around five to ten minutes but it was enough for Cassano to change the atmosphere of the team. Yesterday, he arrived at Appiano Gentile very early with a t-shirt of Cartman, a character on the cartoon series South Park. Completed his medical and went on the field with his new teammates in the gray training shirt. During a warm-up session, Antonio looked for Sneijder, embraced him and then went back in line to do some exercises. The game on Sunday at Pescara is not far away and Cassano wants to be ready. His physical condition seems to be in the good as well as his smiles. Then the moment between Cassano and Nagatomo arrived. “Go Yuto, pass the ball…” And again: “Yuto, I asked you a question and you did not understand.” Laughing as if they both have already known each other.

Vale Rossi and Matrix Three hours later, Cassano answered a few questions in an interview with Inter Channel and confirmed that his morale is high. “Finally, after an eternity, I have arrived at the club that I’ve always supported. To me, this is very important because this means that I have reached the top. My smiles are now back and I want to do well already in Pescara.” A few young fans at Appiano unanimously said: “This exchange is a great deal, he is better than Pazzini.” More famous Inter fans also charmed in the discussion. Valentino Rossi discussed his thoughts via Twitter: “I am very happy to see Cassano in black and blue.” A sentence written in response to a comment by Materazzi: “Welcome to Inter, my friend.” Matrix used the number 23 shirt to honor Michael Jordan, Cassano, instead, will have his beloved 99: “I have an emotional attachment to this number. I said to technical director Branca and sporting director Ausilio that if possible I’d like take it.”

The visit of Moratti When the team arrived at the airport, Cassano remained in Milan and this morning he will have a specialized training program to be ready for the game against Pescara on Sunday. On that day, Inter will not have the suspended Palacio and it is believed that Cassano will play at least 30 minutes in the first matchday of the new season. Inter have also added Cassano on the UEFA list instead of Samir Handanovic. It means that Cassano will debut at the San Siro on August 30 in the Europa League second leg against Vaslui. Yesterday, Massimo Moratti found the time to go to Appiano at 12:30 to have lunch with the team and the new signings: a welcome to Gargano and especially Cassano because he remains a special player not only in Italy. The official presentation will almost certainly be on Saturday at Appiano but a foreign bookmaker has already come up with a bet on him. Question: Who will score more this season between Cassano and Sneijder? In Italy, it is forbidden to bet but it can be done abroad. Perhaps Wes and Antonio will talk about it since they are neighbors. Both entering their building in which they live, Cassano will probably pretend to be angry: for that bookmaker, the favorite is Sneijder.

As for the question on whether or not Cassano has changed from being an enfant terrible (fuck, did I just write that?) or if he was disrespectful towards Milan, I can't judge on this either way.

All I will say is that footballers, and more accurately athletes in general, will say what they need to say in order to satisfy their needs in the short term. And a lot of times the stuff they say is just the dumbest shit out there. I don't doubt the fact that as a boy he supported Inter. But there are only a handful of people that have class in most aspects of life, both on and off the pitch. How many times did we read shit about Lucas and how signing for Inter would be a dream? Bullshit I tell you. We don't know Cassano personally. We only know what we know from what is reported, and what opinion writers state about him. We also don't know the full story or what the other half of the equation was that could have caused him to speak out about Berlusconi.

That said, I am crossing my fingers that his relationship with Strama keeps him in check while he is with us. I think he can be useful for us in any number of roles. Someone capable of taking some of the creative pressure off of Wes. I absolutely love this deal. Infuckingcredible!

You don't get it. It's they way he left. He said by himself that Milan - and he also mentioned Berlusconi by his name - supported him during his break. And when he was fit again he talked in a very disrespectful way about his team and stated in public that he is thinking about leaving.

It's not about his wish to leave. And it's not about the fact he left. But the way he left ... no class.

No class? what class should he show? He is fucking 30 years old and it should be his prime, the next 2-3 years would be his last chance to win trophies. Now, he was part of a shit team that is probably worse than 2009/2010 Sampdoria. What do you expect? Expect him to stay and help the struggle for that club? He has to think about his career more than the club that doesn't really care about its players.

It is the way the board treated some of their players that brought them scudetto that pissed him off. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't ask to leave if the board strengthened the team instead of sinking their ship.

Well its not my fault that in english we use "you" in singular and in plural :p
I meant "you" the people of this forum who bashed branca all the summer .

Saying that Cassano will have problems in here like he has had in any club it's not pessimistic actually :p.
We are everything but a club that can handle this kind of players so i hope his "being a fan" has more influence than his "being a jerk" :p

You can see the GREATNESS and MAGIC of this transfer when forgotten FIF members bother to log in after years & years only to salute this move :proud: This moves makes dreams come true both for player and fans, unlocks hidden potentials and motivates the group. This might just hand us that extra edge on mental level that you need to conquer & win.

Cassano gives us much more than a natural talent/gamechanger, he brings ENTHUSIASM and EXCITEMENT back!!! We all know this is gonna be a hell`uva SHOW, either way we consider it.

YO GUYS!!!!!! We`ve actually signed an ITALIAN LOL :datass: I'm very confident he will give his all here and will have great success since he's an EX-REAL MADRID player/reject :eek:blivious:

10 pages of welcome messages :cool: :star:

the whole "milan looked after him" when he had the heart problem confuses me a bit

like is it a realistic alternative that they'd tell him to gtfo? no club would do that. i don't think a club deserves huge praise for that, it should be standard

if chivu wanted to leave after we helped him with his head injury i wouldn't have said he acted badly. if they want to go then they want to go. it's not "milan helped me with my heart problem now i can screw them over for the hell of it"... he wanted to go for genuine reasons

He praised the management for helping him during his break. He praised Galliani, he Berlusconi, he praised the whole club. One month later he criticized the same club IN PUBLIC and said that he's thinking about leaving.

I remember Galliani praysing him in public and saying that they aren't thinking about a replacement for him because all are sure that Cassano will come back. Don't know if I should believe the words of Galliani but that's the way you should act in public for the sake of your team and the player.

And when uncle Fester has more class than you ... :chan:

No class? what class should he show? He is fucking 30 years old and it should be his prime, the next 2-3 years would be his last chance to win trophies. Now, he was part of a shit team that is probably worse than 2009/2010 Sampdoria. What do you expect? Expect him to stay and help the struggle for that club?

Do you even read what I am writing? :fffuuu:

I am not blaming him for leaving. I EVEN UNDERSTAND HIM THAT HE LEFT!

But what I not understand: He praised the club for helping him during his break. One month later he CRITICIZED THE SAME CLUB IN PUBLIC! That's the reason I say he has no style.

For you again:

Leaving = ok
Criticizing your team in public = not ok

For me that's like a player sitting on the bench and when the coach brings him he says: "I don't wanna play this position. Or that position."

And once again: Before I believe a single word of this "club of heart"-nonsense he has to proof it to me. He's a football player. It's natural that he says things like that when he arrives in a new club. "Nothing greater than Milan." That's what he said about the city rivel of his "club of heart" when he joined them.

God, everybody got crazy about Lucio - but when Cassano does the same it's all ok because the first played for Inter while the second is playing for Inter now. Some people here have really strange views of moral.

No is not... but is the same fucking thing... get over it.I know we did .....

Yeah, it's the same fucking thing. But I am over it. It seems you aren't because you mentioned it. :lol:

I don't care from where a player comes or where he goes. It's their job. But some people here acting like bitches when a player from Inter goes to Milan or Juve ("Joining Juve? I hope he breaks his legs!") but on the other hand they have no problem when a player from Milan comes to Inter. I think this is kinda sanctimonious.

And once again: I don't care that he left Milan. Or that he joined from Milan. It was the way he left Milan. Even when they are our rivals - it wasn't ok.

Coco questions Milan over Cassano
By Football Italia staff

Francesco Coco is surprised by Milan’s decision to hand over cash as well as Antonio Cassano to Inter for Giampaolo Pazzini.

The two players are on the verge of officially swapping clubs, with Inter also set to be handed €7m as part of the deal.

“It would have been fairer without the money,” Coco, who left Milan for Inter in 2002, told Radio Mana Mana.

Milan are the losers here because they have to put their hand in their pocket. It’s a swap deal which is totally in Inter’s favour.

The move has been engineered by the fact that 30-year-old Cassano asked the Diavolo to sell him – just 18 months after his arrival from Sampdoria.

“Cassano has always been an Inter fan and his talent is not up for discussion,” the former left-back continued.

“Now he has the chance to fulfil a dream. However, Milan need Pazzini more than Inter need Cassano…”

I don't see the problem. It is not like Milan insisted on keeping Cassano. If they came out and publicly urged Cassano to stay, or even try to address his concerns it would be a different story. Its not like Arsenal begging RVP to stay and him insisting on leaving.

Cassano wasn't happy at Milan, whether it was the locker room attitude or the fact that they sold all their best players, so he asked to leave. Allegri wanted a goal scorer and all of those were expensive (Juve were asking for 18m for Matri), so Milan saw this as a chance to reduce the price of a striker who would be a definite starter as opposed to Cassano whose role could be filled by robinho or pato.

Milan took this deal because it was the deal they wanted, it wasn't forced on to them. If he had pulled a Modric or a Tevez then people could argue about it. The fact is that this move is the move all parties wanted. We might have gotten the better end of the deal, but Milan are happy with what they got too.
