Well we (AC Milan) had even before Inzaghi a great poacher: Aldo Boffi. Boffi was probably the most important Milan player in first 50 years of 20th century. A very strong player with ferocious shot, at one occassion he kicked so strong a free kick that keeper of Casale team, named Ceresa, catched the ball but felt in the net with it since the shot was thunderous. Boffi was also brillant in aerial battles and always well timed. On the other side his technique was pretty modest and he was very selfish. Legend says the only time Boffi made the pass to teammates was on the centre at the beginning of game. Boffi came at Milan in 1936 and immediately scored 15 goals in all competitions. Next year his total tally is 19 goals, on training he scores directly from corner. In his third season with Milan Boffi was top scorer of SERIE A with 19 goals and 21 in total. In 1939-1940 season a total explosion: 24 goals in 30 games, including record for all times: 14 goals scored in 9 consecutive games, still today an absolute Milan record. And all of that despite the fact he was surrounded by modest players and Milan usually ending in middle of table. Finally in 1941 arrives legendary Meazza and Milan, led by him and 18 goals from Boffi, finished on 3rd place. Next year Boffi won the top scorer title for the third time with 22 goals in 26 games in league and 28 goals in 31 games counting all competitions. Against Novara Boffi scored a goal from centre line :!: Unfortunately for Boffi it was his last prolific season. Since on the field there wasn't any opponent who could stop him, it came from outside, from politics. Defenders in serie A got the help of Adolf Hitler & Co and with the World War II one outstanding career goes in decline at his peak. Boffi moved on to play for Atalanta and later Seregno of SERI B in 1946 and in the first year Boffi immediately won the top scorer title with 32 goals. He retired from active playing in 1952. In total Boffi played for Milan 194 games and scored amazing 136 goals. Aldo Boffi died on 26/10/1987 in Giussano aged 72.

Stop the PSD copycats...
