If I were Carlo...

New, comments

My winning eleven would be:

Dida
Oddo...Nesta...Maldini...Jankulovski
...................Pirlo......................
Gattuso........Ambrosini....Seedorf
..................Kaka....................
.................Inazaghi................

I prefer when Pirlo is behind the midfielders because it gives him more distributing powers from back to front. They will have to attack early so he will be moving early and often. I also feel as though Bonera and Oliviera should be nowhere near the bench. If Maldini has to come out the only man replacing him should be Kaladze. Cafu should also be available because he is wily, expereinced and extremely versatile if he is called upon. If Inzaghi fails early he should be replaced by Gila for both pace and PK reasons if is so goes to it...GOD I HOPE NOT or I will be the one ransacking Bepe Reina's house.

Gattuso should mark Gerrard much like he did Ronaldo and if for some reason he gets hurt he will most likely play through it anyway....unless his leg falls off. Regardless of lineups it will be a very good as most Champions League finals always are I just hope that it can be settled in regulation so that my 24 year old does not fail. I would give a prediction but as a Milan fan it would be a silly bias thing to do...off to a night of anxious waiting and a morning filled with booze to ease my potential pain.
