The Myth of Giampaolo Pazzini Empty The Myth of Giampaolo Pazzini

Post by Arquitecto Wed Aug 22, 2012 2:16 pm

Lets get one thing straight, the fact that we are swapping our BEST player plus 7 million Euro for an out of form striker from our rivals is absolutely ludicrous. This rivals the incredibly head scratching deal from Galliani to order on loan the Obese burnout/Rapist Amantino Mancini. Milan is now about the laughing stock of Italia. Cassano was our sole #10 and ticket to his assists galore as he is one that makes other footballers look even better. SES may be an option being the #10 he is yet he is too raw at the moment to be heavily relied upon. Though, lets look at the positives.

It seems most over here are understandably disturbed by the atrocious dealings this summer without any replacements. So much that they ignore the ability of anyone who is signed by Milan. I have heard quite a lot of negative attention towards Pazzini in this section and frankly I'm quite perplexed by it. Anyone who has followed Pazzini over his career will tell you how good of a striker he really is. Il Pazzo is a forward who is built solely on the confidence of his ability and once that confidence is subdued he will cease to perform. Other 'confidence' forwards are Robinho, Huntelaar, Gomez, Lewandowski, Torres, Jermaine Defoe. A list of names who out of form will be atrocious yet in form when they find their stride and rhythm they will provide goals when needed.

The ones like me who have followed Pazzo over his career will tell you he is a striker based on pure intellect within the box that compliments his instinct. A player with perfect ambidextrous feet (inside and outside) along with a crisp passing technique. They will tell you that he may just be the best header-er of the ball in the world. Why? He isn't your usual 'power' header-er as Pazzo is one whose head is like a third foot. He can outjump many yet most of all his positioning and heading technique allows his to score from ANY angle. His aerial threat is world class. Yet his best trait? His work under pressure. Pazzini simply put is not known for his prolific scoring ability but his absolute clutch ability from his time in Fiorentina, Sampdoria and at times for Inter. He didn't score those useless Cristiano Ronaldo 6-0 goals as these are goals scored when it matters. His goals to bring Fiorentina to mid-table. His goals to secure Sampdoria from relegation and bring them to the CL. Remember his clutch goal performance to in the 2nd leg of Sampdoria-Bremen? (Sadly Pizzaro's last minute goals disgustingly made the difference in aggregate. His only single weakness is that he needs service as without it he tends to go missing. Yet hopefully with our younger and more dynamic squad he should receive the service needed.


I'm not saying this deal is a shrewd deal in any case yet given the fact that we are acquiring a younger player who IS capable of a prolific goal scoring and the ones that matter.

We have taken enough abuse for a month, lets stick together and look at the positives from whatever we can.

The Pazzolivo bromance makes Romeo and Juliet seem like Twilight.

I don't consider the economics of the deal shrewd, however as a player, Pazzini's a unique forward in our squad who will increase our options and if he's happy, he can be a forward who knocks in the one chance we create for him all match. Finding joy on the pitch, rekindling the fire to play and enjoy yourself isn't always easy and Pazzini will have to fight for time, however I have a feeling Allegri will love him and give him the space and times he needs to find his feet for us.

Without confidence, Pazzini is nothing. With it, I'm happy to have him in the team and I'm sure he'll find his smile in Milan on the pitch in no time.

We're not going to be able to service any striker, no matter their name if we don't find some help for Montolivo in central midfield though.

I never saw Falcao as such a devestating Aerial threat as while he is good, its not known to be his best quality.

The reason I separate Pazzini from others in Aerial threat is Pazzini shows such a subtle technique in his heading. Llorente and CR are based more on power of their heading technique and over powering their opponent while Pazzo while utilize the space and with his movement it'll be a casual flick of his head from any angle.

Plus Llorente like Ibra always prefers to play it to his feet as you will rarely see him vie for headers.

Sadly, this is the truth.


OT:The main worry I have is not Pazzini's ability or confidence. Allegri has the ability to bring the confidence back to a down and out player as we have evidenced many times with the magic of our staff.

Pazzini at Sampdoria and at his best was fed service from Cassano in which he formed a dominant partnership with him. Obviously we do not have that option. Yet Pazzo at his best was through the wing attack service in Sampdoria where both able and accurate crossers like Stefano Guberti and Danielle Mannini supplied most of the service where Pazzo converted most of them Aerially and through his feet.

As we know, we have midfield which is rejuvenated in youth and dynamism yet has the creativity of a Comatose patient. We also have very little width in our narrow formation also due to fullbacks who aren't to proficient in attack. Up front we have no TQ aside from the young and raw SES while only Robinho gives me hope in his combination with Pazzo. Pato i'm afraid will struggle to shine with him given Pato is best playing off a Targetman while Pazzo is more of a Fox-in-the box.

At Inter the case was Pazzini had to be under FOUR different managers which really destabilized his form along with the fact that Inter have little width and creativity like Milan. Plus he just could not play with Milito. Hence his drop in form after his wonderful start with them.

From what I've seen from Pazzini,hes a player that relies on service but produces a moment of magic from time to time.However,how will he get that service?If Galliani wasnt so cheap he could of got Pazzini without getting rid of Cassano.Which would mean them playing together just like in Sampadoria,and as far as I remember Montolivo used to play with Pazzini in Fiorentina as well.Right now it doesnt look so good as even Kevin Constant can break into the first team,which leads me to believe that Pazzini could fail like he did last year with Inter simply due to the lack of service.

Intelligent runs, use of both feet, good passing, superb instincts. Skills etc.

Il Pazzo has returned my (our) faith as his confidence has hit a high since arriving at Milanello.

First Penal was Ibra-esque and confident.

2nd was classic Pazzo instinct.

3rd was :bow: :bow:

The third was a back-flick, redirecting Nocerino's shot into the bottom corner, wonderful little touch to clinch his hat-trick.

Third goal was his best of the day, he redirected a shot from Nocerino I believe
but I agree with your analysis

What, is manhandling a player in the penalty box for 5 seconds not a penalty?

That's the problem.

Pazzini dived. That much is clear from the replay.

The reason he dived however, was because he'd been blatantly fouled and slowed down and the referee refused to call it until he fell.

That's my biggest pet peeve with modern football. A foul inside the box (shirt pulled, player tripped etc.) should be called just like any other area of the pitch.

No one should have to resort to diving to get a rightly deserved PK.
