‘AC Milan’

There was much excitement garnered after earlier in the summer Milan declared they were searching for a certain Mr. X. As the name suggests, it appeared as if the club were looking for a player who possessed an x-factor element. A player who single-handedly would elevate the team to a higher level and with it bring the club closer to the lofty heights that have characterised it’s history in the modern era. Up until the very last hour of the [...]

It was a frenetic day at the ATA Executive Hotel in Milan on Wednesday as clubs from Italy’s top-flight desperately tried to put the finishing touches to their squads for the season ahead. After a flurry of last minute activity, sporting directors across the peninsula can now head for some late summer sunshine before preparing for January when the window will re-open for business. In the meantime, Serie A Weekly takes a look at some of the best of the [...]

Overview At the start of last season many did not expect Milan to challenge for the Scudetto. That was, at least, until the club secured the services of Robinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the eleventh hour of the transfer window. Luciano Moggi, for all the criticism regularly aimed at him, spoke prophetically when he said that “thanks to him (Ibrahimovic), the title race will be between Milan and Inter”. Moggi said this in September of last year. Then Inter’s crisis [...]

Cliché’s are, well, clichéd, and even that might be a cliché. They stand as the writing equivalent of using training wheels, working well enough to “fall back on” and “get the job done” but preventing any sort of creativity from shining through along the way. Football is full of such terms, and the 24th Supercoppa Italiana helped to reinforce some of the most popular ones. Football is a game of two halves One only need ask Gian Piero Gasperini. In [...]

Down goes Thiago Motta but check out the special event jersey. At least Inter fans in the Far East were given something to remember their heroes by as it was not the final scoreline that caused them to jump for joy. Hopefully for Nerazzurri tifosi this image won’t mirror the Italian Serie A season ahead. Inter dominated the first 45 minutes with the opening goal coming from their capable playmaker Wesley Sneijder at the Bird’s Nest in Beijing. Sneijder is [...]

Milan sealed their eighteenth title in Rome way back in May, though the final few games were a case of dotting the Is and crossing the Ts. The final point was a formality. Whilst it is true to say that last season’s Milan were a superb side from top to bottom. There was quality throughout their ranks and enough depth to carry them comfortably over every obstacle they encountered. It is also true to say that they were the benefactors [...]

Philippe Mexes is a dirty cheat. He’s a walking red card and a thuggish scumbag; an explosion waiting to happen like that quiet, inevitable interval in between lighting a firecracker and waiting for it to go off. Philippe Mexes is a tremendous defender. Sure, he has a dirty side, but what centerback doesn’t? His expulsions tend to be a bit exaggerated, and what he gives to his team far outweighs his overstated lack of discipline. Loyalty, passion, and aggression are [...]

On October 24, 2010, Antonio Cassano took to the field with Sampdoria in a crucial match against a then-second place Inter side. At the Giuseppe Meazza, the Bari-born fantasista was instrumental once again, delivering a pinpoint perfect cross to Stefano Guberti which temporarily gave Sampdoria a 1-0 lead. Inter would score an equaliser with ten minutes left in the game and both teams earned a point. Cassano’s solid performance kept the Genovese side in seventh place and more importantly in [...]

As recently as a month ago, not many people could say they had heard of Stephan El Shaarawy. Serie B can be very hard to follow (in Italy as well as abroad) and very few could say they had seen the fantasista work his magic on the pitch. Fast-forward one month and the 18 year-old is on the way to becoming a household name. After some stunning performances in the Serie B Promotion Playoffs, the Genoa-owned player attracted the attention [...]
