Bit off topic, seen a program this afternoon in Bannatynes, while my wee girl was in the pool, called footballs greatest, was about Roberto Baggio, I'm 40, I remember watching Italian football on Chanel 4 on Sunday afternoons back in the late 80s early 90s, they had so many great players over there, it made football seem quite glamorous at the time, and the standard of players was top class, Baggio, Maldini, Donadoni, Van Basten, Baresi, Battistuta, Voller, Gullit, Nesta, Albertini, Rjkaard, Signori. if you could take one or a different one from that time, in there prime for Celtic just now, who would it be?

Wee Signori would have been a hero here. Scored goals for fun for lazio and had a magical left foot. Never made the most of his talent though.

If we are talking about players to go in the current team, then I would be torn between Barsei and Maldini. However, if it was based on who I would loved to have seen in the hoops the most, I would probably go for Maradona, as he was one of my favourite players of all time (can't believe you forgot him) .

31 Jan 2018 16:52:02
Van Basten for me Cjb77 absolutely loved the guy as a kid and was in tears when he had to retire Never missed gazzetta on a Saturday morning or an Ac Milan game if they were shown on the Sunday.

31 Jan 2018 16:52:17
Would a loved big battistuta in the hoops! Unbelievable striker the big man was! Tough one but because Baggio and Van Basten were top quality to!

31 Jan 2018 16:53:14
Couldn't pick just one to be honest. I love Milan of that era.
Maldini is the best defender on my life time
I love watching Van Basten Guilt and Jean-Pierre Papin. Football italia was magic.

31 Jan 2018 16:56:53
Fillipo Inzaghi for me.

31 Jan 2018 17:12:09
Maldini for me.

31 Jan 2018 17:29:26
Zidane, Del Piero, Buffon.

31 Jan 2018 17:16:33
Your right, Maradona was amazing player, can’t believe I left him off first list, along with Mattheus, another top player, James Richardson always seemed to be sitting outside fancy cafes in the sun, while we watched on tv and it was grey outside! Back to today, I hope we get the young lad Hendry and keeper that our manager wants👍.

i remember when that bannantyne had his ice cream van outside our school, he was a currant bun too.

Van Basten in his prime was the best center forward I've seen in my fairly lomg lifetime. ACMilan were something then.

31 Jan 2018 17:51:46
Maldini for me. One of those rare talents that made football look easy and beautiful. A truly brilliant player.

31 Jan 2018 18:43:25
My memory of Italian football on channel 4 was loads of big names, lots of 0-0 draws or very low scoring games.

As a kid I hated watching it, in hindsight it was the world's best players all cancelling each other out.

31 Jan 2018 18:48:53
Has to be Gullit for me, he had everything that you would want in a player.

31 Jan 2018 19:01:18
I'd take Lillian Thuram i remember seeing him play for Parma against us in pre season friendly, whit a player.

31 Jan 2018 19:52:49
Luca vialli was cracking remember him running for a rebound getting dragged down but still getting his head on it to score
Del piero was cracking also the football Italia era saw a shift in power from Milan to juve I had a soft spot for sampdoria and napoli
Maldini though for our current side.

31 Jan 2018 19:47:10
maldini was just class, baggio another super footballer
toto scillachi was great wee striker but one guy alwats gets overlooked Atillio lombardi from sampdoria remember his bald head as much as his ability.

31 Jan 2018 20:42:09
Enrico Chiesa for me - guy was total class in a era where Italian strikers where out of this world.

31 Jan 2018 20:47:08
Same yernawsbaws, a always got bored waiting for a goal. A can remember thinking it was shite cos there was nobody getting put up in the air. It was modern day football before its time in that sense.
