Forged in Milan

Identity. Mentality. Grinta. These are all words being thrown around in talking about Milan these days. What was once weak has become strong, and it didn’t happen under some pretty-boy little airplane guy. No, this transformation came from someone who sweat blood for Milan and knows what it is to give everything for this shirt. This team has been forged in Milan.

Milan 3, Chievo 2: Stumbling Steady

Certainly no one would claim that this match was Milan’s finest hour. And in fact, conceding two goals in as many minutes was very frightening. But in the end, despite the stumble, Milan kept fighting to earn all three points and keep the positive results steady.

Milan-Chievo Preview: Incoming

Team mascots are weird. One of the weirdest in Serie A has to be i Mussi Volanti, or the Flying Donkeys. I mean, what are they supposed to do to their opponents? Bray them to death? I always assumed that these Flying Donkeys were supposed to drop road apple bombs from the sky, forcing their opponents to yell “Incoming!”

Europa League • Arsenal 3, Milan 1: Dignity

After slinking away from the San Siro last week having played a poor game and conceding two goals, it was good to leave Emirates stadium with our heads held high, despite being knocked out of the Europa League. How does a team leave a two-leg tie with their heads held high despite losing 5-1 on aggregate? Why don’t you ask Danny Welbeck. Or Jonas Eriksson, for that matter. But then again, neither of them seem to know anything about dignity.

Europa League • Arsenal-Milan Preview: Double Decker Bus

Even if Milan’s squad had as much quality and experience as Arsenal’s, going to London with a two goal deficit is a nearly insurmountable burden to overcome. But Milan don’t even have a comparable squad, the stability, nor the experience. And we have a lot of injuries. So truly, it might be better to just go to London as tourists and maybe take a ride on a double decker bus.

Podcast: Momentum

Milan has made great strides forward recently on the pitch. And despite recent hiccups, a 13 game unbeaten streak with six consecutive wins and six consecutive clean sheets is some incredibly positive momentum. But stepping back and looking to where we were a year ago, just before the sale of the club, there is even more forward progress. Fans of every kind are already beginning to forget what the club has been through over the past six years and look forward to even better times ahead.

Genoa 0, Milan 1: Finally Silva

Silva was one of the most expensive players Milan purchased last year. After dazzling in the Europa League early in the season with six goals in as many games, everyone was eagerly awaiting his Serie A goals to start flowing. Having received precious little playing time in the league under Montella, Gattuso praised him and gave him a few starts and a lot of substitutions on, but nothing. And so as a frustrating 0-0 draw was literally seconds away from happening, Silva chose that moment to open his Serie A tally with a sublime header scored in the most spectacular of ways. Finally, Silva.

Genoa vs. Milan: Basic Training

Genoa-Milan Preview: Back on the Wagon

Milan are used to facing every match with complete uncertainty: without a proper squad, a good coach, and consistency at the club in general, it was anyone’s guess what could happen traveling away to Genoa. It was almost as if we were addicted to losing. Surprisingly, this calendar year, with a proper squad, a motivated coach, and a 13 game unbeaten run, bringing three points back from the Marassi is now expected. After Thursday’s loss to Arsenal, though, finding that confidence again and especially finding goals may prove more difficult. But if winning is the expectation, then Milan must find a way to get back on the wagon.

Europa League: AC Milan 0, Arsenal 2: Just a Flesh Wound

In the epic “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” there is a formidable Black Knight who guards a bridge with the ferocity of Gattuso and the unrealistic viewpoint of a Montella or Allegri. As the scene progresses, the Black Knight loses an arm, exclaiming it’s “Tis but a scratch!” Then he loses another arm, one leg, and then the other, but still wants to fight. That’s the kind of spirit that our team fought with today, but spirit alone was not enough. Outclassed tactically and with players and a coach with more European experience in their small toes than our entire team had, we were left for dead. Only we have a rematch next week on their bridge, and I hope that’s enough time to grow our limbs back.
