Milan 0, Napoli 4: Annihilated

If you’ve watched Milan’s downward spiral in terms of performances this season, and especially if you’ve seen Napoli’s results spiraling upwards, then tonight’s loss should not surprise you. You might even say Milan got our just desserts. The score, however, was like kicking a man when he’s down, with the own goal just another kick in the face. But as usual, the defeat is nothing in comparison to the rhetoric of Milan fans on the interwebs. It’s hard enough to lose a game like that, but when your fans toss around hyperbole and call for everyone’s heads on platters, it’s just embarrassing. It was a very poor game, a logical step based on our recent performances. And certainly with fans like this, the team must feel like they’ve been annihilated.

Milan vs. Napoli Preview: Just Desserts

After a string of poor performances, a couple of wins, as well as some okay performances coupled with losses or draws, Milan will now be tested by the team just above us on the table. Coming off of defeating Juventus and also a win in the Europa League yesterday, they will certainly be coming to the San Siro for three points. And after last season’s loss at the San Siro in December, then their 3-0 “Snack Time” revenge on us in the San Paolo, they are probably ready for some red and black dessert right about now. So if Napoli crush Milan’s souls on Sunday, know that it will probably be our just desserts.

Can he inspire a San Siro victory against this team? Or will we get what we deserve?

Milan’s Midfield Dynamics

This post has a trick title. Because the biggest problem in Milan’s midfield is that there are no dynamics. Mihajlovic has done his best to try to find the right combination, but the truth is there just might not be one with this group of midfielders. Not that this would be a surprise to the fans, who have long begged for a quality midfielder. But since management do not value the fans or their opinions (or winning, apparently,) we are stuck with what we have. No midfield dynamics.

Who is the real regista?

Genoa 1, Milan 0: Blanked

For those of us in an inopportune timezone, watching this at, say, 3:30am, this match added insult to injury. For those who typically watch Milan at that kind of time, this must have been a massive waste of a decent match time for once. For all Milan fans worldwide, it had to be an epic fail. While some fans felt that the win was only a matter of the scoreline, others of us knew this was gonna be ugly. Still, I’m not sure anyone anticipated just how much. So instead of celebrating a third consecutive win, we were put into place by our feeder club, while Galliani scouted for the January mercato. In essence, we were blanked.

Not even this level of beastliness could save us from ourselves

Genoa-Milan Preview: It’s Gonna Be Ugly

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our last two games, it’s that a win isn’t always beautiful. In fact, a win can be downright ugly, particularly when the “ghosts of the past” come back to haunt us on defense. Add to that we are playing at the Marassi, and things can get very ugly there. Then there’s the time of the game, a lunchtime game in Genoa means I’m watching at 3:30am. That’s definitely ugly. On the bright side, hopefully we won’t be wearing those inexcusable things we call our third kit, like we did on Tuesday. Hopefully it’s not going to be that ugly. But we may as well plan that it’s gonna be ugly.

Just because it's our 2nd away game in a row doesn't mean it won't get ugly if the guys don't give 100%

Udinese 2, Milan 3: Two Shoes

In Spanish, “zapata” means “shoe.” So fitting, then, that each team today had a Zapata. And that each one of them scored. But neither shoe was golden, nor were they a matched set. And despite Milan holding out for the win, I can’t imagine they’re happy with the performance. While the learning curve is still in place, it is very disconcerting that the last convincing win we had was against a newly promoted Serie B side in the Coppa Italia. Not as disconcerting as those third kits, mind you.  But still, a win is a win. On paper, no one has to know how we got it, they will just see the three points. And it’s our second win in four days, too. So if I had to choose one of the two shoes, I’ll keep ours, thank you very much.

"They can dress us like nightmarish clowns, but we can overcome and get three points!"

Udinese-Milan Preview: Would it Even Matter?

After a win on Saturday, Milan travel to Udine to take on the 18th place Udinese in their house. Udinese haven’t won a game since their opener, so will be very determined to get a valuable three points in their house. Meanwhile, Milan, coming off of an important win at home, will want to keep up the streak to keep climbing the table. But with the apathy of Milan fans following that win, would it even matter?

What if no one saw his brace... would it really be a brace?

Milan 3, Palermo 2: Brace Yourselves

It’s hard not to be thrilled with three points. Especially at home, in front of the fans who are the team’s worst critics. Strike that, the team’s second worst critics. Or maybe third. The media has a nasty habit of grabbing one player and crucifying them, but no one does that better than social media. It’s like people are watching Twitter now, instead of the game. Or at least looking to Twitter to tell them what to think about players. But I digress. We won. With an amazing brace by Chewie (Bacca,) and a beautiful free kick from Bonaventura. People in the stadium looked happy, and a win will do that. But if you think that I am happy, you should probably brace yourselves.

There were certainly things to be happy about
