Ronaldinho goes to San Siro (AC Milan)

MILAN, Italy (AP) - The news conference was called to show off Ronaldinho, AC Milan's new star, before the Brazilian star had his name or his number on the team's red-and-black jersey. Ronaldinho didn't even have a contract yet.

So Thursday night's presentation at Meazza Stadium began a few minutes late and was hastily turned into a signing ceremony.
"Put your signature here," Milan vice president Adriano Galliani told Ronaldinho, as they sat side-by-side in front of TV cameras, and the player took pen in hand and signed the papers.
Galliani told reporters that right down to Thursday night "there were all kinds of problems," the Italian news agency Apcom reported. "It got down into the nitty-gritty, such as the rating of the bank giving the guarantee" for the transaction to acquire Ronaldinho from FC Barcelona.
Even before he signed, Ronaldinho, speaking in Portuguese, told the news conference that "I already feel home here."
"It's a really special moment," the player said. "Everyone wants to be on this team for the importance of Milan's history. Putting on this jersey is already a victor for me," Ronaldinho said.
AC Milan is aiming for a quick rebound, back to the top of European football, now that Ronaldinho has joined Kaka and Alexandre Pato in an all-Brazilian attack.
Milan finished a dismal fifth in Serie A last season and was eliminated by Arsenal in the second round of the Champions League. This season, Milan will play in the second-tier UEFA Cup.
Ronaldinho told reporters that while his time with the Spanish club "had been very positive, with great victories, at a certain point the championship titles weren't coming any more, there were disappointments and displeasure, and thus the time came to part ways."
"Here I can go back to being happy and to reaching new personal and team objectives," he said.
2008 Summer Transfers

Ronaldinho scored 91 goals in 200 appearances in five seasons at Barcelona, and helped lead the club to consecutive Spanish league titles in 2005 and '06, and the Champions League trophy in 2006.
After he signed, Ronaldinho stepped onto the field to the cheers of fans, who attended the presentation for free.
The Rossoneri won the Champions League in 2003 and 2007, and lost the 2005 final to Liverpool.
Barcelona said AC Milan will pay €21 million (US$33.6 million) for Ronaldinho and an additional €4 million (US$6.4 million) if the Italian club clinches a place in the 2009-10 Champions League.
The transfer amount was considerably less than the €32 million that Barcelona said Manchester City had offered.
AC Milan owner and Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi has said Ronaldinho is "worth" the money

If you are using firewall software such as Outpost Firewall Pro,
the paid edition of Online Armor and Kaspersky Internet Security or PURE, you can take advantage of using their Blocklist feature that
will block connections to known malicious URL and IP addresses.
This means you tend to be copying it through file sharing websites like rapidshare,
megaupload, hotfile, etcetera. The more doors you have
the more chances of people finding it. This can be a great tool when selling products online,
as a website can be designed to offer either luxury or bargain-oriented goods,
based on traffic analysis. NOW, I don't mean you should just put keyword spam in your footer. There are so many good blogs out there, and if you're one of those writers, you definitely know how important it is that
your site gets heard through all of the noise.
Instead, the developer should concentrate on the functions mentioned in this article first, as they
are the basis for further extension of the Word - Press header file.
When SEO services are working for you, you should always be ready to capitalise on
innovations and fresh marketing opportunities. The title is supposed
to explain the article, and the title is what your readers see when they
search for content. This helps auto dealership websites rank higher in the search engines
results and get more traffic to the website.
They want to know things about how to create effective copy,
general marketing tips and maybe even stuff about social
media. If your website deals with certain products or services, then
conduct a proper research on these and then form your
SEO content. Basically, if you create links to your website
with "ink cartridges" or "printer cartridges" in the anchor
text, it will help move your website up on the search results for those key words.
Here you will need an SEO agency such as Webfirm to try
and run damage limitation. Create a general, high-level category in
which you want to manage all phrases'for example 'global,' 'online,' 'channel,' and so on. Why. Law firms face various challenges and have issues in remaining at the top in the market. Keep in mind that Google doesn’t really like page rank manipulation, even if it’s internally on your site or externally by backlink spamming. First of all a market survey is done by them as to know the competitors analysis. November 2012.
