Hi ive recentley started a game with AC Milan and as you know their squad is filled with players who are aged 30+, players I consider to be the golded oldies. So instead of going down the usual route of buying potential im going to go the AC Milan way and buy experience instead.

I have already signed Pablo Aimar, 31, from Benfica for 3.9million euros and so far he has done ok with 2 goals and 2 assits in his first 5 games think he still has 2-3 good season left in him.

I'm also looking at possibly trying to get Migliacchio and/or Miccoli from Palermo and Hugo Campagnaro from Napoli as well as keeping my eye on several others.

I would be interested to see if any one eles has tried signing players aged 30 or over and how well they did for you.
One player I have admired when I did a season at Basel some months back was Hoggel, I think he is like 34 but
he plays like a wonderkid, his attributes are ok but he would be a good signing for Milan.
When I played as Manchester United I thought it would be funny to bring back some "golden oldies" to see how they'd go with Giggs, so I brought back Beckham and Van Nistelrooy.. Beckham was a bit of a flop, the only real joy I got out of him was seeing his name run around on the pitch and his solid 3 red cards for the season.. Van Nistelrooy was surprisingly good, scoring 20 goals for the season which was 11 in the EPL, 2 in FA cup, 2 in League cup, and 5 in the Champions League.. Not too bad at all for a 35 year old who the majority of his games came off the bench.. Another one I can think of would be Raul? One of the greatest strikers the games ever seen and I'm sure you could pick him up cheap from Schalke..
even AC Milan now trying to regeneration squad !

just want to tell something , usually old players have not good stamina , look at that ones and work rate is also important , best luck
