Podcast: Con il Milan nel Cuore


At the heart of Milan is its fans, and midsummer there is still plenty to talk about amongst Milan fans. With the transfer market in full swing, summer friendlies picking up, and the season less than four weeks away, the excitement is building. Whether we should be optimistic or skeptical, everything is still exciting to talk about. And at the heart of it all, of course, is Milan. Con il Milan nel Cuore.

With Milan in our hearts and the red and black as our second skin...

My guest this time is Francesco, the other Pope, aka the President of the Curva Sud America, coming to us from the cold Argentina winter and also via Twitter. We chat about:

• News of the Week: The Lakers-Milan connection, Milan hairstyle update, Bonera and the mercato

• Serie A Schedule released: how the first half of our season may look

• Friendlies Review: Trofeo TIM and the ICC Valencia-Milan matches

• Upcoming Friendlies Preview: Audi Cup and ICC Tournament

• Transfer Update: players in and players out

Con il Milan nel Cuore: Growing up Milanista




Thanks again to His Holiness, Francesco for sharing his Milan heart with us. You can follow the heart of the Curva Sud America on Twitter @FrancescoPetra8 for random bits of Milan.



Audi Cup Mini Preview



The Audi cup is a tournament of four teams, usually teams sponsored by Audi. This will be Milan’s third time participating in the mini-tournament, and our first match will be facing Manchester City. Balotelli and De Jong should both be available to face their former team, and the other national team players will also be at Allegri’s disposal, save Abate, who is still recovering from his shoulder injury. Manchester City is obviously a team with many talented players, one recent acquisition being the familiar face of former Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic.

On Thursday we will face either Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich or Sao Paolo. Whatever the outcome, it would be ideal to finish anywhere in the top three, seeing as how we have finished fourth place the past two tournaments. Also, please no more injuries. Beyond that, enjoy the match!
