Milan 3, Livorno 0: Happy

Milan are getting results. And results help with morale, just ask Seedorf. Or you could look at the faces of any of the players, the coaches, or the fans. It may not be pretty football, even if there is still improvement and growth as a team. But the smiles (and in this match the goals) kind of make up for that, don’t you think? I know I’m happy.

A fifth straight victory

Milan-Livorno Preview: Dangerous

When we last met Livorno with a Livorno native for our manager, we drew the match, 2-2, and we ended up in 8th place. So here we are again in 8th place, but this time they’re coming to our house. And Allegri is long gone. However, they sit in 18th place in the relegation zone, so this time around, they could be trouble. Just like you were taught to never play with fire, you should never underestimate a team at the bottom, it’s dangerous.

When the Hunter Becomes the Hunted

For 28 years, Galliani has been revered as the CEO of AC Milan, and feared by his peers as some kind of Evil Genius when it comes to the mercato. In fact, here on the blog, he has his own holiday on the last day of every mercato to celebrate such genius. But as Milan’s situation has deteriorated, so has his reputation. Not coincidentally, because as CEO, he has made many of the decisions that caused the demise. So I found it completely ironic to hear yesterday that the transfer maestro himself was the object of transfer speculation himself. The hunter has become the hunted.

Hero or villain?

Milan 1, Catania 0: Ghetto Ball

Not that Milan were likely to put in an amazing performance all of a sudden, but it’s hard to play the beautiful game when you are getting hacked and fouled incessantly. However, it was our quality that saw us through this match, and the beautiful goal was enough to see us take down gli Elefanti in a match that really could only be described as ghetto ball.

You earned these 3 points the hard way, well done.

Milan-Catania Preview: Stampede

Normally in the jungle, it would be the elephants who stampede. But with gli Elefanti this season, they seem to be the ones getting trampled. However with a change of coach this week, they will certainly be looking to poach a result at the San Siro, so our boys need to be sure to be wary of an unpredictable group of elephants and a potential stampede.

Will Catania have the power of a herd of elephants or will they be more like the mice who frighten them?

Phoning It In

This season has been so strange, especially for a blog and forum like this one. First, the team was playing terrible, but there was so much angst, and thus so much participation from fans. Then, the team’s performances got so terrible that it was just painful, and participation dwindled. Enter a new coach, and new results… some good, some poor, and finally a string a great results. I would think that people might be interested in that, but maybe they are still passed out in their Allegri-induced drunken slumber, I don’t know. All I know is that only the truly Milan Obsessed will be reading this anyway, which is why I’m awake at 3:30am posting anything at all. So sorry to the truly devout, I’m phoning this one in.

You're Welcome.

Podcast: Winning

It may be hard to believe after this season, but Milan have won three in a row. And not just any three games, either. The winning extends beyond the pitch, though, with the new Casa Milan officially unveiled and new commercial ventures being sought in what seems to be the best efforts yet to acquire a new stadium in the near future. After so much heartbreak, it seems that Milan are back to winning ways, and the future looks red and black.

So much win

Genoa 1, Milan 2: Battle of the Middle

Just enough time for a quick review this time, it was a battle for the middle of the Serie A table, and it wasn’t easy. With 33 fouls called and a lot more that weren’t, both teams are lucky to emerge in one piece. But we went to the cursed stadium and we came out victorious, despite a valiant effort from i Grifone.
