I remember time this summer Ganja (what happened to him btw?) or Ursus - don't know who exactly - wondered why Milan had re-signed Ibrahim Ba. Well, according to Guerin Sportivo, he was signed on the insistence of Adriano Galliani because he had been training with them since January and brought them luck!

And, in order to introduce my Italian football blog, there's a piece on this here.

It so happens that this came up on yesterday's Guardian podcast, with James Richardson putting forth the theory that it was a charity case for a bankrupt Ba. I've heard other suggestions (mostly revolving around "privileged access" to young Senegalese players, including Ba's son (a theory that Richardson also mentioned), but this strikes me as the most likely of any of the various versions I've heard.

Pawlu, you should post a link on the Guardian Unlimited page for that podcast; I think they would genuinely be interested.

And the world needs an intelligent Italian football blog in English (especially know that Martha has retired from the Offside); I'll be reading yours.

I also heard mention of that on the podcast, having previously noticed Digao on Football Manager. At first I assumed they had wrongly put Kaka's photo on his profile, but checking his full name showed they were brothers. Is he therefore the brother that couldn't say Ricardo?

Also, what did happen to PPV? There is a distinct lack of ACM promotion going on around here now!

I think Digao is the brother in question.

PPV has been taking a break from the board, but shows up episodically (most recently today).
