Fantagiornalismo

I have been offered an interesting contact. Someone I know is a personal friend of one of Milan's lawyers, an expert in sports law and contracts. Though the chap in question is an interista, he had to watch the derby from a director's box with his clients. heh.

anyway he has apparently siad that if I were interested he might be able to fix me up with an interview with a couple of Milanisti, presumably those for/with whom he has acted in the past. Until I have further information I don't know who this might or might not include, of course. But if you could interview any one Milan player, who would you choose?

and meanwhile, would my Milanisti friends ever forgive me for not turning such an opportunity over to them instead?

Yes! Billy Costacurta (hey, he still counts), simply because I think it'd be an interesting interview, or at the very least have great potential to be so. He's charming, witty and doesn't spew platitudes 24/7, which immediately distinguishes him from many footballers.

Besides. Who else are you gonna talk to? We all know what they'd say already...Kaka? Boooooring.

Interview Maldini. Or better yet Maldini and his Dad. Imagine all the things you could cover, 4 or 5 decades worth of Milan and Azzurri history.

Although it would be fun to interview Ronaldo at the moment and ask him at what point and how did he find out his prostitutes weren't female?

philcafc said...

Ha, yeah Ronaldo would be fun.

Per i Rino Gattuso, ole! for me though. Or at least I think that's how the song's spelt. Can't argue with Maldini either, simply to be in his presence would be something you'd remember the rest of your life.

Ricjkard. On that spitting incident.

Juventino said...

There's only one current (if only for a few more weeks) player who truly is a club, national and international legend.

Spangles, if you had your pick and chose someone other than Paolo Maldini I'd never be able to enjoy your blog again!

guys, there's a tiny tiny problem:

if I met Maldini I don't think I'd be capable of much coherent speech. All my intellectual powers would be focused on trying not to dribble. I think I'd just gaze at him worshipfully and possibly ask to stroke his hair.

having said which, hell yeah, if he can fix me up with Maldini there's no way I wouldn't want to do it.

Eeee, you lucky thing! Congrats, I hope the project turns out marvellously, and that you give us every excruciating detail.

How about Clarence Seedorf? He's straightforward, eloquent and intelligent - I thought his words in the wake of the Sandri affair were pointed and sensible, to name but one instance. He has a lot of interests outside football, both commerce- and humanitarian-efforts-wise. And I have never heard him be boring. [Of course, this could just be my Milan-bias talking, but then even I think Pato or Gilardino would be horribly boring.]

Can your interview take any focus *you* like, or is there an agenda you have to conform to?

Juventino said...

I think I'd be the same, Spangles!

Aussie Romanista said...

Can't believe you even posed the question! I saw him score a goal at San Siro and I cried.
I would turn gay for Paolo Maldini!

any member of the current arsenal squad. oh.

I think you should not go for that ugly cunt Maldini and instead go for devilishly handsome Super Pippo, who can melt most women's knickers from 100 yards.

Plus he's actually newsworthy (returning to teh Italy squad at 35b years old) and therefore more profitable. While I'm sure stroking Maldini's ego and whatever else you fancy doing will be fun, it ain't gonna pay the bills sister.

If its in a months time, how about Ronaldinho? You just have to be nice to his dolt of a brother.

(By the way - replied to yor email Spangly, but I think your spam filter may be blocking it, gmail doesn't like me for some reason)

Try and get an exclusive with Flamini, before he moves on for 'football' reasons.

A. said...

How about Nesta? Nobody talks about Nesta. I think people think that he's being talked about all the time so they don't bother talking about him, which ends up meaning that nobody ever talks about him.

Plus he's from Rome, Spangley. (Is that why he's not counted?)

Ibrahim Ba. I'm not sure what they do to journalists at Milanello, but the latest edition of the normally excellent Offside magazine has three separate, brain crushingly dull and sycophantic Milan articles. Lots of talk of 'family', a 'special club', and a particularly nauseous reference to berlusconi's passion for Milan (he played for the junior team, y'know). And of course there was a sleep-inducing Kaka interview.

Good luck and all that, but avoid the mind altering drugs they put in your coffee.

Brian said...

I'd say pick Kaka, but then ambush him with hostile questions about all the iffy parts of Christianity. Really make him answer for the Thirty Years' War.
