Podcast: Mission Possible


For the past couple of seasons, success has seemed less plausible than someone holding onto the outside of a plane taking off. But that didn’t stop management from claiming that we were contending for the Scudetto or a Champions League spot. However, this summer, they acquired a smart coach, kicked out some players who were at least two years past their expiration date, and brought in players with quality who have a nice combination of youth and experience. And looking at how things are coming together so far, despite being premature, for the first time in a few years, reaching a top three spot finally seems like Mission Possible.

Making it look believable

A new season, a new coach, and new players calls for a new guest. So in searching the globe for a world class guest, I ended up in Norway and found Kristian. He has contributed to the comments section of the blog and is a great fan with a very strong knowledge of both football and Milan. This time we talked about:

• News of the Week: Primavera tournament, new sponsor, Muntari making it rain, Galliani speaks, Serie A anthem, Milan’s season fixtures, FIFA presidency, Zaccardo news, mercato update

• Friendly: Real Madrid 0 (10), Milan 0 (9)

• On the pitch: discussing strengths & weakness, our picks for starting lineups

• Coming Up: mark your calendar for upcoming friendlies





Thanks again to Kristian for some fantastic conversation and for being a bleeding in red and black Milan fan. Check out his comments on the blog under the screenname Kriskor.
