Restructure, please Silvio!

Another season, another empty feeling for Rossoneri tifosi world-wide. Sixth place in Serie A preceded by last season's third place finish is remarkably bad for a five time European champion club.
Milan are no longer seen as a major force in Italian football, let alone world football. Let's be honest, without the Ukranian, Milan would have finished nearer the relegation zone, if not Serie B.
Their European performances at the San Siro for the last couple of years have been atrocious.
Milan seem happier at remaining unbeaten rather than risking their point for a victory. It has been very saddening to see Milan eclipsed by the likes of Roma and Parma this season in Italy and by Galatasary and Deportivo in Europe.
The annihilation of Inter in the derby match was a rare treat for Milan fans, but too rare a treat for my liking.
Consistency is required.
For consistent results hard working players are needed.
Injuries to Redondo, Gattuso and Ambrosini this season have crippled the midfield, but isn't that the idea of having a world class squad in the first place? Recently Galliani has been warning Terim that he must sell before he buy. Where is the problem in that? Terim should call Galliani's bluff and sell 10 or 11 of those fringe players who quite simply are not good enough to play in the first team. With the money made from selling these players he could purchase maybe 3 or 4 world class players.
If Milan were to streamline their playing staff, as Galliani 'favours', they could concentrate on constructing a smaller squad of perhaps 22 world class players.
Next season we only have the league and the UEFA cup to compete in (forget the Coppa Italia, everyone else does).
So please Silvio, Adriano, Terim or whoever is currently holding the strings restructure the squad.
Milan can only be made big again by paradoxically reducing the number of players in their squad.
