Probably the last update this year, in here I wish everybody a Happy Year 2000!
Inter just signed 2 more players, first is Columbia defender Cordoba, the other one is forward Mutu. There is no news about Baggio, he's probably having holiday....
Below are some pictures, the first one was sent to me by Thirukumaran Sankaran, the second one was sent to me by Edik Sembiring, thank you very much Thirukumaran and Edik!
The others were all scanned by me, hope you like them!
25th December 1999
Inter has officially announced the purchase of Holland midfielder Seedorf, this means that it's now alot harder for Baggio to be in the starting line-up....
Today is christmas day, in here I wish you all have a merry christmas!
19th December 1999
It won't be a happy christmas for Lippi, Inter travelled to Bari but lost their 5th match of the season with a score of 1-2. Baggio once again started as a substitute, but he only had around 15 minutes to play. He had a chance to level the match during injury time, but the shot was blocked by the crowded defence of Bari.
17th December 1999
A correction, Inter is through to the quarter final of Coppa Italia, but not semi-final. Their opponents will be AC Milan.
16th December 1999
A report says that Vialli, coach of English Premier League club Chelsea, wishes to invite Baggio to join his team. In Chelsea, apart from ex-partner Vialli, there are Italian teammates Zola, Casiraghi and Di Matteo; and French players Deschamps and Desailly were Roby's teammates at Juventus and AC Milan respectively. So it seems that Chelsea is a good place for Baggio.
On the other hand, Inter Milan just beat Bologna 3-1, they are through to the quarter final of Coppa Italia, that is Italian Cup. But Baggio was in the bench for the whole match.
15th December 1999
A news article about Baggio criticising Lippi, the title is "Lippi went back on his word, Baggio says". This is a Reuters article. Click here
Lippi's reply is that Roby is free to leave Inter now.
13th December 1999
When watching the match Juventus vs Inter, I saw Baggio with a little ponytail, is it coming back?
Here are some pictures. The first one is from La Gazzetta dello Sport, it's Baggio in the match against Juventus.
The others were sent to me by Edik Sembiring from Jakarta, Indonesia. All the pictures were scanned by Edik and Edik's friends. Thank you very much!
13th December 1999
Inter Milan travelled to Torin but lost to Juventus by 0-1, now they are 5 points behind league leader Lazio and Juventus. Baggio came on as a substitute during the second half, Inter was behind already. Probably because of the lack of playing time, it could be seen that Roby was not in form.
12th December 1999
Baggio surely is ok to play for Inter against Juventus, but it is very likely that he'll be named as a substitute.
10th December 1999
Inter official site reported that there is a better hope that Baggio will play in Sunday's Serie A match against Juventus, hope he will be able to play.
8th December 1999
Baggio's injuries just keep coming, now it's not sure whether he can play in Sunday's away match against Juventus.
I read an article about a person trying to interview Baggio, but in his eyes were a player that looked down, looked tired...... after I read that article, I realize how seriously injuried and lack of playing time affect Baggio...... Now the issue is not returning to the national team, rather is how to get out of injuries. There is a way you, as a Baggio supporter, can send your support to Roby, write a letter to Baggio to the following address:
Inter head office
Via Durini 24, 20122 Milano, Italy
I don't know how much this can help though......
6th December 1999
Inter Milan beat Udinese 3-0. Baggio was not even in the bench.
5th December 1999
Yesterday Inter official site reported that the attacking partner will be Vieri and Recoba in today's match against Udinese, so we may see Baggio starting from the bench again.
3rd December 1999
According to Inter official web site, Baggio will be playing with Vieri and Zamorano in Sunday's match against Udinese at the San Siro Stadium.
1st December 1999
Italian Cup final 8 first leg, Inter Milan beat Bologna 2-1 at home. Baggio substituted Zamorano at the beginning of the second half, Inter was leading by 2 goals at that time, but Baggio seemed to be not in good form......
