Podcast: Bringing Back the Milan


The first two weeks of the Seedorf era have gone by, and the reviews are in: it’s too early to determine anything. But that doesn’t stop us from discussing them. Whether it is his formation, substitutions, his motivational skills or ability to impact morale, nothing was off limits on this podcast. Despite it being too short of a time to really determine anything, we talk about his apparent impact on the squad for his three short matches in charge.

Nothing says heart like "I got your back"

A returning guest this time was Sam, Deputy Editor of Forza Italian Football and host of their Italian Football Fancast. Sam is a former co-blogger of mine from another blog and a massive Serie A and devout Milanista. Our discussions included:

• News of the Week: Allievi Nazionali win, ex-Milan scorers, Dodgeball, the team huddle

• Mercato News: Matri, Nocerino, and Vergara out, Petagna returns and Essien comes in

• Reviews: Coppa Italia Round of 16: Milan vs. Spezia, Serie A week 20 vs. Verona, Coppa Italia Quarterfinals: Milan vs. Udinese, Serie A week 21 at Cagliari

• Upcoming Matches Preview: Serie A week 22 vs. Torino, Serie A week 23 at Napoli
