Podcast: Great Expectations


With so many mercato changes in place and four friendlies under our belts, the bizarre concept of optimism is beginning settle in amongst Milan fans. How long has it been since we could truly be optimistic about an upcoming season? And have some foundation for said optimism? While trying not to drown ourselves in the Kool-Aid, there certainly are a lot of signs that things are starting to look up. It’s hard not to have great expectations for the upcoming season.

Never a meaningless friendly with Inter

For this conversation, I invited Milan Obsession’s favorite longstanding guest, Francesco. You can follow him on Twitter @FrancescoPetra8 or check out the comments section on the blog, where he is our no. 10 and captain. We talked about:

• News of the Week: Serie A schedule, team dinner, Pazzini bitches, Darmian facepalm, players left behind, Coppa Italia

• International News: Tavecchio and Conte love affair, big changes at FIFA, World Cup draw, soulless Suarez

• Friendlies: Milan 5, Alcione 1; Milan 5, Legnano 1; Lyon 2, Milan 1; and Milan 1, Inter 0

• Mercato: players in and out

            • Mercato Gossip: tossing transfer rumors around

• Coming Up: mark your calendar for upcoming friendlies





Thanks again to Francesco for repping Mauri for us and being on the podcast. Follow him on Twitter @FrancescoPetra8 and check out the comments section on the blog to see why he’s our captain and no. 10.
