AC Milan's glorious history dates back to the night of the 16th of December, 1899 when Englishman Alfred Edwards formed and later became president of the newly founded Milan Cricket and Football Club. The location was the Fiaschetteria Toscana in via Berchet. The club was well frequented by English sportsmen and the top people of Milanese culture where they would discuss their team over cocktails at the American Bar. Till the breakaway on the 9th of March 1908 which led to the formation of rivals Inter, Milan FC had already won three Italian League titles. In 1926 Pietro Pirelli, a frequenter of the American Bar, decided to put his money into Milan's new stadium, the San Siro. However, Milan's English origins were out of favour with the Italian Fascist movement of the time and Milan had to wait till after World War II to start to recover. The purchase of players like Gren, Liedholm and Nordhal (Gre-No-Li) helped Milan back to the top of Italian football.

Between the years 1948 and 1966 Milan managed to finish in the top three of the Serie A each year but one, also managing to win four Serie A titles. Milan imported some top football stars to help them achieve this. Uruguayan Juan Schiaffino and Brasilian Jose Altafini were two of these stars. Milan managed to reach the final of the European Cup in 1958 only to lose 3-2 to the great Real Madrid. In 1963 Milan managed to reach the final again. This time Milan won 2-1 with both goals scored by Altafini, after Eusebio had put Benfica in front. In this team there was a figure head which was to dominate Milan's team for 15 years. His name was Gianni Rivera. Alongside him were other great players who were to influence the future of Italian soccer, Cesare Maldini, father of Paolo Maldini, and Giovanni Trapattoni, who would win the scudetto as manager for seven times. Manager of this team was Nereo Rocco who was sometimes more of a father then a manager to most players. In 1968 Milan won their first Cup Winner's Cup beating Hamburg of Germany 2-0. In 1969 Milan became Euro champions again, this time beating Johan Cruyff's Ajax 4-1 in a one sided match with Italian forward Pierino Prati scoring three goals.

This team would then go on to win the World Club Championship beating Estudiantes with an aggregate score of 4-2 in two matches. In 1979 Rivera's last season at Milan would bring to the club the much desired tenth league title and hence the honour of wearing the star on their jersey, an honour only shared by three clubs till this very day. Then came Milan darkest period. Under President Felice Colombo Milan were relegated to Serie B for match rigging. After playing themselves back to the Serie A, Milan went back down to the Serie B under President Giuseppe Farina who fled to South Africa with a fortune of players money.

Silvio Berlusconi appeared on the scene in 1986 in a spectacular but difficult takeover of the club. The first thing he did was to heavily invest in the club's youth structures and in Milanello, Milan's training grounds, making them the envy of every Italian and European club. He also courageously entrusted his nearly 40 million dollar investment into the hands of an unknown manager by the name of Arrigo Sacchi. Berlusconi's emphasis was in developing Milan's team into a business structure, full of innovative ideas and managerial style of development. Sacchi quickly invested the money entrusted to him to purchase Dutch trio Ruud Gullit, Marco van Basten and Frank Rijkaard who together with youth prodigies like Franco Baresi, Mauro Tassotti and Paolo Maldini and some other good signings like Roberto Donadoni and Carlo Ancelotti turned Milan into an unstoppable machine, even pipping Maradona's Napoli out of a league title in 1988. Milan crushed Steau Bucharest in the European Cup final 4-0 after thrashing Real Madrid 5-0 in the semi final.

However, the work rate involved in Sacchi's hard pressing game began to take its toll and after winning another European Cup in 1990 with a solitary Rijkaard goal against Benfica, Sacchi took over the Italian national team. Milan new coach was Fabio Capello, who at the time was a manager in one of Berlusconi's companies. In his first season Capello won the Serie A title without losing a single game, starting an historic unbeaten run which was to last an incredible 58 games. Milan went on to win three consecutive titles from 1992-1994 with big scores of 7-3, 5-3, 5-1 and 8-2. Marco van Basten became Italy's all time higest scoring foreigner before injuring his ankle which prematurely ended his career. At the end of this run Milan had to face Cruyff's Barcellona in the European Cup final in Athens. Cruyff was overconfident saying that Barcellona would tear apart Milan after managing to score three times as many goals as Milan had did in thei league. Contrary to all expectations, Milan went out on an all out attack and thrashed Barcellona 4-0 with great performances by Frenchman Marcel Desailly and Montenegrin Dejan Savicevic.

The next European Cup final however, proved evasive and Milan lost 1-0 to Ajax, also due to a number of missing stars in the final. From here on Milan went into lethargy and have not recovered since. Capello was replaced by Uruguayan Oscar Tabarez, again by Arrigo Sacchi and Capello was again given the manager's driving seat. None of these changes have been effective. In the hands of new man Alberto Zaccheroni, Milan have incredibly managed to win the scudetto on his first opportunity. The only managers in the history books that managed to do this were the now legendary Nereo Rocco, Arrigo Sacchi and Fabio Capello.

Zaccheroni lasted till middway 2001 with the duo of Cesare Maldini / Mauro Tassotti taking over. The highest achievement of this duo was the 6-0 thrashing of Inter, which will certainly go down in Milan's history books. At this time Milan were already on the look out for a new manager in Fatih Terim. The Turk brought with him some good football. However, this manager only lasted a couple of months after an inconsistent string of results Carlo Ancelotti took over.

The year 2003 was Ancelotti's year. He was entrusted with players like Nesta, Pirlo, Seedorf and Rivaldo which added quality to the team and the club under his guidance went on to win two trophies the Champions League, where they met rivals Inter in the semi-final and then Juventus in the final and three days the Coppa Italia which had been missing from the trophy room from 1977. Milan also finished third in the Serie A.

I know I’ll probably get dismissed, but Savicevic has no business being in this team, he wasn’t even a starter for 90% of his time at Milan and spent more time in the hospital or arguing with Capello than actually playing world class football. 90 league games in 6 years says it all really...

Gren and Kaka did way more for the club, Savicevic only has a fantastic goal against Barcelona and one great season (which he spent half of injured anyway). Ability alone is not enough to be in an all star team of a legendary club like Milan, besides, Gren was a far better player than him anyway.


So true lmao, how could i miss this! :mrgreen:

Just bypass to talk about adding Kaka to the first team.
If he is added, who should be taken out from the first team?

Moreover, I wonder whether Gren is registered as forward as he register position seems to be AMF but not SS or WF.

Boban is the only one that could be removed for Kaka, and to be honest, I definitely think Kaka should be there over him. Boban was there for 9 years but played less than 20 league games every season on average. Kaka was the best player in the world while he was at Milan and basically won the 2007 Champions League on his own. Boban was a great player but he, like Savicevic, wasn’t a consistent part of Milan’s success during that period.

On the other hand there’s 5 natural AMFs in the team plus Schiaffino who could easily play there, so maybe Gattuso would be a better option. Also Ambrosini should surely be in reserves, he played almost 500 games for Milan.

He should actually have SS* as main position (inside forward).

Yes, Gattuso/Pirlo/Seedorf for Boban.

I don't know how many of you agree but I think what has been said in the last posts is correct. Boban could be replaced by Seedorf since they played in the same position. No one would ever doubt Boban's class and legendary status but Seedorf won more than him and most important Seedorf played 432 matches, scored 62 goals, against the way less of Boban. I think this switch wouldn't be offensive.
An alternative to Seedorf would be indeed either Gattuso or Pirlo who won with Milan the same titles as Seedorf and played around the same amount of games. Them as alternatives would work in case we want to avoid the team to have too many attacking midfielders / secondary strikers.
Massimo Ambrosini absolutely needs to be in reserves.
