It’s hard to be a Milan fan right now, there hasn’t been a lot to smile about. But that didn’t stop us from finding humor in our situation. And when humor isn’t enough, our very own Milan Obsession bartender has some drink suggestions for you to help ease the pain. So if you think this season is on the rocks, you might be more accurate than you know!

Just in time for the Barcelona game, we have our favorite leader of the Curva Sud America coming straight from Messi’s homeland of Argentina, Francesco. We commiserate and laugh and discuss:

• News of the Week: Painful defeats, Slumber parties, and a new defender

• Tactics: conceding set pieces

• International Roundup: Milan players on national team duty

• Review: Serie A week 8 vs. Udinese

• Upcoming Matches Preview: Champions League: Milan vs. Barcelona, Serie A week 9 vs. Parma, Serie A Round 10 at Parma, Serie A Round 11 vs. Fiorentina

• How to Survive this Season with Milan: Drink suggestions from our expert bartender

• Player Spotlight:  Valter Birsa




Thanks so much to Francesco, our official Milan Obsession bartender and leader of the Curva Sud America. Follow him on Twitter at @FrancescoPetra8 and wish him luck surviving the Barca match in Argentina!
