Podcast: Milano Tourism Bureau

With just three games left, everyone is on pins and needles to see if we can pull off third place and the lucrative Champions League qualification. And in a late season call to fans everywhere, Pete endorses a trip to the San Siro better than an advertisement from the Milano Tourism Bureau. Find out if Allegri’s tactics make the grade, and whether or not El Shaarawy deserves the criticism he’s gotten lately.
