    Dunno if they've been mentioned before, but Gattuso at Rangers and Materazzi at Everton:

    Italian calciatori didn't usually venture abroad in the years gone by because of the incredible strength of the domestic leagues in terms of money and competitiveness - as well as a myriad cultural and traditional reasons, so it's a tad bit surprising these World Cup + Champions League winners played at those clubs at a relatively young age before eventually moving to Milan and Internazionale - where they played the best football of their careers.

    Gattuso met his wife in Scotland. Imagine having a Glaswegian wife? The guy really is one tough fecker.

    I remember being at the game against WBA in 2005 when we drew 1-1 and he had an absolute worldie. Pretty convinced SAF bought him off the back of that.

    I'd completely forgotten about him until we played Yeovil the other night. Their keeper had a somewhat similar sounding name.

    He may well have been mentioned earlier in the thread (I haven't read all the way through), but when I occasioanlly think about his time with us it's always with a bit of surprise. I think it's the combination of how unlikely it seemed that he'd end up with us with the fact that the United team he played in seemed sort of transitional and therefore a bit more forgettable. Even weirder was that I didn't mind him too much for those years.

    Who could ever forget Klinsmann played for Spurs exactly?

    Maybe they don’t remember his second spell, but that’s the club everyone thinks of when they think about Klinsmann.

    Di Maria and Valdes for United. I almost forgot Valdes exists. Him leaving Barca was really career suicide, up till now, I don't understand why he left Barca when he was their legend. Feel for him for his downward trajectory career after Barca.

    I imagine it's been posted already but has surely the only winner is William Prunier playing for us, right?
