A good news! Baggio is fit to play in the Italian Cup match against Bologna, and he may be playing for the whole 90 minutes.
A mistake correction, Vieri didn't play the match against Reggina, thanks to Montreal for telling me about this. Sorry because I'm just back to Hong Kong, at the moment I don't have much time to take care about everything. But this Baggio's World will still be filled with updated Baggio news!

21st November 1999
Originally yesterday's training was to try Baggio, to see if he's ok or not. Before the training the situation was optimal, but Inter official site reported that Inter would be without Roby in today's match, which is really a bad news......
20th November 1999

Yesterday Inter played a friendly match with Tunisia at the San Siro Stadium, Baggio played the whole match and scored 1 goal as Inter beat the visitor 3-1. The other 2 goals were scored by Jugovic and Moriero.
On the other hand, the no-Roby Italian National team lost at home once again. The score was 1-1 before the Italians conceded 2 goals in the final 20 minutes, which gave the visitors Belgium a surprise win.

Here is a picture from Inter Milan official web site, this is taken during the match between Bologna and Inter, and it's the only one that I can find Baggio in it, but too bad that it doesn't show Roby clearly, he's the one in front of Bologna number 8.
9th November 1999
Italian national team will play a friendly against Belgium this Saturday. Baggio is not included in the squad as expected. While his Inter teammate Vieri is out because of injury, goalkeeper Peruzzi and right-wing Moriero both are out as well. But defender Panucci and midfielder Di Biagio are included in Zoff's 21-man squad.
8th November 1999
After playing Bologna, Inter now have 14 points and are in the 6th place in Serie A. This result is the same as the one at the same time last season. The coach at that time, Simoni, was under criticism. Now Lippi should think in the following 2 weeks, and put Baggio into the starting line-up when Inter meet Lecce at home 2 weeks from now, Vieri should be available, a win is not a hard job then.
8th November 1999
Baggio finally had a chance to play, he substituted Jugovic in the 58th minute. However, Inter were beaten by the home team Bologna with a score of 0-3.
7th November 1999
This picture was sent to me by Cesar Failla, the person next to Baggio is him. Thanks to Cesar Failla!
Today Inter Milan will travel to Bologna. Since Vieri is injuried, Ronaldo and Zamorano will be the strikers.
Will Baggio start the match in the bench again? If unfortunately this is so, will he have the chance to play?
5th November 1999
The picture to the left was taken during Jomo Cup '99, by Masahide Tomikoshi from Japan. The main character in the picture is Japanese player number 8 Tsuyoshi Kitazawa, but in the background, Baggio is looking at him, this makes the picture meaningful, because Kitazawa's favourite soccer player is Baggio. In here I would like to thank Masahide Tomikoshi for his consent! To go to his homepage, click here
News about Roby, the friendly match between Inter and Saronno ended up with a score of 3-2, Inter won. Baggio played the whole match, but didn't have goal. According to Corriere della Sera, Baggio said after the match that he didn't intend to leave Inter, although it seems that Lippi has in his mind who to be in the starting line-up already.
4th November 1999
Later today Inter will play a friendly with Serie C2 team Saronno, Baggio should be in the starting line-up. But Lippi only lets him plays in this kind of matches, I don't think any Roby's supporters is happy about it.
