My Idol/Hero and one of Inter's best goalkeepers he was outstanding for us for the better half of the decade and remains a fantastic goaltender to this date. This thread is so we can talk about great pagliuca moments or if you want to piss me off some mistakes he made lol. Pictures would be appreciated.

Pagliuca used to design his own jerseys.

Do you guys remember his blunder in the WC final in 94? Gosh I loved the way he kissed the post hehe

I remember Pagliuca very well. One silly reason why he's remembered is that he was sent off against Norway in the 94 WC. I still rate him as one of the best Keepers ever.

Damn, this is a shame, it seems we forgot about the living legend.

Last Sunday, and playing for Ascoli against Messina, Pagliuca set the all-time record for appearances by a GK in Serie A :star: :star: :star:

And in midweek, he almost single-handedly let Ascoli to a tie with Milan robbing Inzaghi of a sure hattrick. At 39, the legend still has it :proud:

Congratulations Pagliuca :heart: :heart: :heart:

He's the type of goalkeeper that will actually stand out in a national team. Even when filled with players that get more shine. Pagiluca was like Waleed in captain majeed....saves your ass....

I think the record was 570, and he has played 2 game since, so that should take him to 572. And God willing he will pass Maldini's record (583) soon and overtake him for good.

And for good measures, Pagliuca was man of the match today in Ascoli 1 - Sampdoria 1.

I have great reespect for Pagliuca. I love the good old days when most shot stoppers in Serie A were Italian. In Pagluica we had one of the best keepers around and I am pleased he got the record of most Serie A apperanaces for a goalkeeper.

Our most consistent player between the sticks. And I read it somewhere that he also had a record for sleeping with more than 1,000 woman. LOL

happy Birthday Paglicua

Pagliuca holds back the years

http://www.uefa.com/news/newsId=492016,printer.htmx

As he celebrates his 40th birthday today, Ascoli Calcio 1898 goalkeeper Gianluca Pagliuca is joining an exclusive club. Like S.S. Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta and AC Milan defender Alessandro Costacurta, he is now one of only three current Serie A players still going strong into their fifth decade.
Zoff record
On September 17, Pagliuca broke Dino Zoff's record for most Serie A appearances for a goalkeeper, taking his total to 571. Now he is chasing Paolo Maldini's all-time record. Showing no signs of slowing down at 38, the Milan defender has made 594 appearances in Serie A, while Pagliuca has played 585 times. "I was very happy to overtake an Italian footballing legend like Zoff," said Pagliuca. "When I was relegated with Bologna [FC], I was just one game short of his record and after a season in Serie B, I finally got to beat his record. Now there is only Maldini between me and the overall record and I probably will not give up playing until I reach him."
Great career
Whether he manages to achieve that goal or not, Pagliuca will still be able to look back on a mighty career. A 1989/90 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and Serie A winner with UC Sampdoria, he captained FC Internazionale Milano to 1997/98 UEFA Cup success against S.S. Lazio. Having been a losing finalist in the 1991/92 European Champion Clubs' Cup final with Sampdoria, he was Italy's goalkeeper as they lost the 1994 FIFA World Cup final on penalties against Brazil. He was also first choice at the 1998 finals, eventually retiring from international football with 39 caps.
'A bit jealous'
However, he wears his experience - and his age - lightly. "Physically I still feel the same as I did ten years ago and looking back at my career I'm very proud," said Pagliuca. "I came close to winning the European Cup and the World Cup. I was a bit jealous when Italy won the World Cup this summer but I was also very happy for the players and the coach. It must have been brilliant for them."
Ascoli struggling
Pagliuca's season has been less brilliant so far, although his form between the posts has been one of the few highlights of the campaign for Ascoli as they sit at the foot of the Serie A table with no league wins to date and just six points to their name. "I came here to help Ascoli to avoid relegation," said Pagliuca. "It was a bet with myself. We had a difficult start but I still believe we can make it. The club showed their faith in a 39-year-old lad who is still eager to play an important role in Serie A and I want to repay that faith."
