Post by nicholasmenger Thu Sep 29, 2011 10:51 pm

So I couldn't help but notice that so early into the season Allegri has made the not so surprising decision to bench Aquilani.. 2 games in a row now. The fact that Urby Emanuelson's mobility is preferred is pretty funny to me considering he hasn't really done anything spectacular to merit a start himself. You have to wonder if Aquaman will get any game time at all once KPB is back..

Do I think he's a bad player? No. Do I think he adds anything to this team other than depth? Not really. He hasn't played too poorly to be fair. Nice wonder header against Napoli the only real highlight. I still think 6M at the end of the yr is a fair price too. I just seriously doubt his ability to establish himself on this team right now.

Consider this.. Our best results in this early state of the season: draw at Barca, win vs Cesena and V Pizen.. Aquilani benched for all of them.

If Allegri chooses not to start him against Juve this weekend I think it shows his mind is made up as well.

Nick! Where you been buddy? Glad to have you back.

Aquilani? I saw this coming. I have always said that Aquilani does in fact have the talent and ability to be Milan quality, yet it is his frail mentality that hinders that. It is a similar attribute in Montolivo where they both get that deer in the headlights look and are all too tame and timid to take the game by the nuts.

Anyone suspect that Allegri is using him sparingly simply because of the loan deal where we don't have to buy him if he makes more than less then 20 apps? Maybe not.

Point is, I would still give him time to adapt as these kinds of players only thrive through pure confidence and when given the support of people around him. Aquilani is by no means Mr.X quality, yet I still feel he can prove himself as a useful asset to us.

I still have faith in Aquilani, he has all the tools necessary to succeed. I don't want to keep repeating myself because I've said this many times. Trust Aquilani, he will be important for us.

Arquitico you crack me up buddy...


Aquilani does in fact have the talent and ability to be Milan quality???, really?, if the likes of antonini and nocerino (our beloved headless chickens!) are milan quality then aquilani certainly is!.

you can hype him as much as you want, he's still nothing but a backup/sub/depth player for me, i'm yet to be impressed by anything he's done so far, one of the most overrated italian players to come out in a long time despite not achieveing anything at all, as far as i can tell he's only had one decent season at roma(not even great), the rest you know, he couldn't even make it in some of the worst sequads liverpool and juve have had in recent years, that really says alot......


nicholasmenger is on point here(welcome back btw), even allegri has realized that after aquilani failed him as both a midfielder and trquartista, his brief performance against viktoria last night was just catastrophic, not only that he didn't add anything to our game but he also could've cost us the match by losing the ball twice while trying his terrible dribbling, so defenitely not starter then...

Fadi, my friend you must understand how frustrated I actually was myself when this man was our Mr.X. I was inconsolable and ranted to people who didn't even care about Milan on B&Gs crime of hyping our target.

What I am saying is, when a player shows flashes of brilliance, the brilliance and talent is actually there. Ask Liverpool fans, who actually wanted to keep him as there is a myth that he was a flop for us, but he only flopped in the aspect that the whole team did not use him properly along with his injuries.

At Liverpool, he did show flashes of world class brilliance, he did so at Juve as well but was inconsistent there, and of course we all know about Roma.

I remember many games in which he showed world class one-touch passing, through balls, shots, use of both feet, intelligence, yet injuries and a certain moron named Roy Hodgson shipped him off.

The jump between club to club along with injuries have destroyed his confidence.

I am not praising him in any spectrum, but I am only touching upon the fact that if it he can play with more confidence and consistency, he can be a solid, not indispensable, but solid player for us. He does have abilities yet the modern players of today such as Aquilani are to inconsistent in showing it simply because they have the mentality of a frail china vase.

Plus, lets not forget Aqulilani is not a TQ and actually prefers a deep role.

Lets give it some time, if he flops for to long, I will be right by you simply saying I want him out despite what I feel he is capable of. Yet his mentality is one of the worst I have seen.

It just seems like you're having a go at a player who just happens to be one of our few creative options in midfield
Who are we gonna use? Seedorf? You were just saying how in the other thread he's a "ticking timebomb"

Welcome back Nicholas!! I believe your profile is missing something
Aquilani isn't Mr. X. He isn't even Mr. Starting XI. 2885
:bow:

I agree with you to some extent, Aqua hasn't shown much at all during these testing times, but i believe he could turn it around if given more opportunities to prove himself. He's been thrown into the deep end and hasn't been eased into the starting line up, also this hype that b&g created around mister x as the missing link has added to the pressure to perform well, and tbh that's not even enough sometimes.

Given reasonable time and effort he could be a solid player to have and adds great value to our depth, but wouldn't be surprising to see him flop under the mr x tag.

I get what you're saying. I by no means want him to fail. I think he's more than capable of helping the team as well. I think he's definitely more creative than the 8 defensive mids we have so that's an obvious asset. I'm just not sure he's got what it takes to be an out and out attacking mid player. What I was trying to point out was that regardless of my opinion, our few positive results have come with him benched and Allegri has kept him there for the last 2 games. Makes me wonder what the coaches opinion of the player is. His opinion is the only one that matters.

Aquilani didn't get a single minute in a game where are midfield was being completely overrun. I have to assume Allegri doesn't care for him.

Aquilani really isn't that great, but if you look at our lackluster midfield trio, he could actually be useful. I'd take him over Antonio "I just run around like an idiot" Nocerino any day.

too bad Allegri lines up and plays in the most predictable fashion every time. Aquilani will never play RCM under Allegri. Is it time for Boateng to drop back into the midfield yet? He said that would happen this Summer. Let's try Robinho and Cassano at AM and BIG BANG in the line of 3 and see what happens.

Which is why we have 3+ threads running around at the moment calling LAlegri an idiot.

not to say I agree with such posters, but keeping Aquilani on the sidelines when both Nocerino and Seedorf were horrible was just pure stupidity.

So ? the prediction is interesting none the less , not the means .. and in any case , if it was just injuries , he would have stayed. I mean , how many games he have missed after returning from injury. Almost , all of them .
