Agree about the keeper. Amelia does not look like a kind of keeper that'll keep them solid. Lord knows how they managed to keep on Dida for so many years, he was god awful!

However, Borriello and Hunterlaar had an awful season last year. Mind you, if Pato wasn't injured no-one would've noticed. However these 2 failed in trying to fill that void. Ibrahimovic and Robinho signings were genius. Especially Ibra, he's been scoring in almost every game.

Borriello scored 14 times in 29 league matches so i wouldn't say he had an awful season. Not a great season but a solid one and he scored a lot of beauties.

Huntelaar never really got the chance to show his quality. Yet he still managed to score a good amount of goals when you looked at his game time minutes. You never judge a player qualities after just one full season, ask Florent or Didier. Now he's scoring goals for fun at Schalke and the Dutch national team, 9 goals in his last 8 matches.

And of course Ibra is a good signing, he's a phenomal player. But what i was trying to say is that the striker role wasn't Milan's greatest concern. Now they have great attackers but average (and very slow) midfielders, weak defenders (except for Thiago Silva and Nesta is still solid) and keepers that can cause you a heart attack.

About Robinho, good player but really nothing special. I like the guy cause he's a real entertainer but he's too inconsistent.

I'm happy Borriello moved to Roma, I think he's going to be immense linking up with the likes of Totti, Vucinic and Adriano. Will be interesting to see how Claudio uses him because Roma have this tendency of switching to strikerless formations.

How's Adriano doing at Roma anyway! I was glad once I found out he'd been signed but haven't seen him featured much. Is he still the same player he used to be?

He's been injured unfortunately and hasn't featured as yet. Out for another month atleast. Such a shame because I was really looking forward to seeing him play alongside Vucinic.

Happy to see the re-emergence of sides like Napoli. They were bankrupt and in awful shape just about 5 years ago and it's good to see them back in the Serie A and standing up to the big boys.

I can only answer your first question, don't know much about Hernandez.. Momo Sissoko is not being used that much by Juve now. In fact there's a rumour going around that Juve-Wolfsburg will trade Sissoko for Dzeko & of course Juve would pay more because Dzeko is worth more.
