Milan v Parma Post-Match Comments

Screen Shot 2014-09-15 at 6.28.12 AM

This image is the difference between Milan of past, and Milan of present. Antonio Cassano spent a couple seasons pouting, complaining, cardiac-arresting in a plane, barely surviving, and helping Milan to Max Allegri’s Scudetto, a glass of water in the middle of the desert that is AC Milan.

Stadio Ennio Tardini, Parma, Italy

We’re in first! We’re the highest scoring offense in Serie A! We’ve… only played one match. But hey, that felt pretty good didn’t it?
