Sassuolo 4, Milan 3: ……..


There was a game. It was really foggy there. Milan showed up, but their Curva didn’t. Robinho scored on a De Jong assist in the ninth minute. Balotelli scored on a Cristante assist in the 13th minute. Life was beautiful for about fifteen minutes.

The good, the badass, and the ugly

Then Berardi scored four goals on Bonera. The stadium played Chumbawumba’s “I Get Knocked Down” each time. I have now memorized the words. All of them.

Then Montolivo, who subbed on for Cristante, scored a goal in the 86th. It was good, but not enough. Allegri bringing on Pazzini and then Honda for his debut wasn’t enough, either, even if both of them hit the woodwork and looked fantastic.

That was a great test drive. Where do I sign?

Then the ref blew his whistle.

During the match, there were 8 cards handed out. Five to Sassuolo players, and one each to Bonera, Balotelli, and De Sciglio. To say it wasn’t pretty would be the understatement of the year.
