Milan have been quite adept at snatching draws from the jaws of victory this season, but last round we one-upped ourselves and lost all three points in the final 10 minutes of the match. Cagliari come in desperate for points and surely smelling blood despite their own woeful form. It’s shaping up to be another ugly one at the San Siro, but an ugly victory sure would make it a hell of a lot more palatable.
If winning games that you really don’t deserve to is a mark of a great team well, there’s just one more sign that this version of the Rossoneri is not a great team. It looked as if Milan were going to earn a brutal three points last round before once again squandering a one goal lead. Against La Viola, I’ll be surprised if we lead in the first place. Of course we did score first the last time we played, but in keeping with tradition we threw that away too. Read More
Well, we didn’t lose last round, but we certainly labored to hold back a desperate Chievo side. Now Hellas, their neighbors and rivals with just one more win on the season, pay a visit to the San Siro hoping to avenge a 3-1 loss earlier in this campaign. Read More
Ok. So it was Cesena. But three points is three points, and there are another three right there for the taking as Milan head to Verona to take on the Flying Donkeys, a team they have defeated in 15 of their last 16 meetings. Read More
We drew with Empoli last round, and probably deserved to lose. Cesena drew with Juventus last round (something we couldn’t manage), and probably deserved to win. What does this mean? Damned if I know. Read More
Let’s start from my perspective as a fan. I’ve supported Milan since I was a child, which today served as a reminder of how long ago that was. When I first started supporting Milan, there weren’t the readily available communication methods that exist today. It was an isolated experience – sitting in a room by yourself and hopefully having the right channel on TV. Sure, big matches warranted group viewing, but even those of my friends with Rossoneri inclinations struggled to share my interest in the away trip to Bologna in the middle of the winter.
Ok. So we didn’t beat Juventus. When things are going this way, that’s a pretty easy loss to get over. In another sign of the times, what Milan really need to do now is concentrate on getting revenge. On Empoli. Read More
Can a side that labored to beat the bottom team in Serie A possibly challenge the team at the top? Calcio is a funny old game, and surely Milan’s players and manager know they have something to prove each time they take the field. Juventus is the side trying to stay on top of Italian football, yet it’s the Rossoneri who should be far more hyped for this match. Read More
If you’ve taken a psychology class, you’ve most likely seen the above video. In it, a gorilla walks in, waves, and leaves. But since the video asked you to perform a tangental task (how many times players wearing white pass the ball), you’re not supposed to notice the gorilla. It doesn’t work with everyone, especially those who know it’s coming, but to the uninitiated mind, this genuinely can be mind blowing.
This seems appropriate. With Pippo Inzaghi’s job in the balance, the universe has seen fit to send the absolute worst team in Serie A this season to the San Siro. It’s almost like a cosmic challenge. As if a higher power somewhere is saying, “Surely you can beat these guys, can’t you?” Read More
