Hotel Milan

It’s been a while and I sort of forgot that I used to enjoy doing this.

Also, the fact I enjoyed doing this meant that I put in my own money to make a website where I could write whatever whenever.

It never made sense to monetise it in any way – that would mean this was work, which it was never meant to be.

League Position: Milan (8), Sassuolo (16)

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

What’s at stake here? For Sassuolo, nothing. They are safe from relegation. For Milan, very little. Finishing in the top 10? Eh, who cares? This match is about something very simple: not losing to Sassuolo again! Read More

Milan v Inter Post-Match Comments

Mazzarri didn’t want to give anything away in his press conference. He wouldn’t give a probable lineup, in part he says, because Seedorf didn’t give anything away the day before.  But Seedorf did give out some information, and it actually turned out to be a key piece – Andrea Poli was looking likely to start.

Serie A Preview: AC Milan v. Internazionale

Date: Sunday, May 4, 2014

Kickoff: 2:45 PM ET (USA) / 20:45 CET (ITA)

League Position: Milan (10), Inter (5)

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

It seems that for the majority of this Serie A season pride has been all the Rossoneri have really had to play for. Europa League qualification snuck back into the picture for a few weeks, but on Sunday, with the season’s second installment of the Derby della Madonnina, pride is the only prize these players and coaches can hope to claim.

Roma v Milan Post-Match Comments

Now things get interesting. The meltdown at Milan behind the scenes is nearing it’s pinnacle, and with 3 matches left in the season and the derby next, pressure will only increase as the quest for the Europa League continues. Add cameras and this would be Italy’s next hit reality show.

Serie A Preview: AS Roma v. AC Milan

Date: Friday, April 25, 2014

Kickoff: 2:45 PM ET (USA) / 20:45 CET (ITA)

League Position: Milan (7), Roma (2)

Stadio Olimpico, Rome, Italy

It’s been a nice little winning streak for the Rossoneri, but besides the first game in which they defeated a solid Fiorentina side, Milan have largely been feasting on minnows. This week there are bigger fish to fry, and a chance to prove their revival under Seedorf is legitimate as Balotelli and company head to the capital to face one of the best Roma sides in recent history.

Milan v Livorno Post-Match Comments

Not a good precedent, but if you undermine the previous manager, and make changes calling them tactics… then you get a new manager.. and one who played in the great years here, and then change his lineups, there’s a lot more going on than what’s being said.  Because then, it’s not entirely about winning and losing, because if it was, Clarence Seedorf wouldn’t be in jeopardy. How many clubs would reportedly have their manager near the chopping block after five straight? Milan, that’s who.

Serie A Preview: AC Milan v. Livorno

Date: Saturday, April 19, 2014

Kickoff: 9:00 AM ET (USA) / 15:00 CET (ITA)

League Position: Milan (8), Livorno (18)

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

A run like this sure would have been nice at the beginning of the year. Milan are picking up the points they should always be picking up at least these days, and with another weak opponent coming to town it should be five Rossoneri wins in a row for the first time in what feels like a long, long while.
