Podcast: Derby Disappointment


A Derby win, or even a great performance, would have been such a gift to the fans who have suffered so much this season. But it was not to be. Instead, we got more of the same timid and inconsistent play we’ve seen all season. So disappointing. But if I’ve learned one thing this season, it’s to grasp onto any tiny amount of good, because there’s not going to be a lot more of it any time soon. With back to back wins, and a decent draw going into the derby, it was a letdown on so many levels.

Thanks for nothing

Somehow having the emotional strength to record right after the Derby was our President of the Curva Sud America, Francesco, also known as p3trarch on the blog. Born in Milano and a lifelong Milanista, he truly knows what the Derby means. You can follow him on Twitter @FrancescoPetra8. Our post-Derby conversation included:

• News of the Week: the Berlucopter returns, van Ginkel unveiled, Primavera win a trophy in Dubai, guess who’s back?

• Season to Date: our results from Serie A

• The Derby: commiserating the draw

• To Sell or Not to Sell: what is known and what is not

• Coming Up: Upcoming matches and what to look for







Thanks once again to Francesco, especially for recording under extreme emotional distress post-Derby. Please follow him on Twitter @FrancescoPetra8 and check out his comments on the blog.
