It was a forgettable week for Italian football in Europe’s premier club competition, the Champions League. Roma, Milan and Inter all lost their first legs in the first knockout round of the competition. To make matters worse, all three losses were suffered on Italian soil. Milan took first to the field of the Italian sides when they hosted Tottenham Hotspur last Tuesday. Having been outplayed in the first half, the Rossoneri did come back to dominate the game in the [...]

During the nineties it would have been unthinkable that Tottenham would come to the San Siro and defeated the mighty Milan. Back then, Milan were one of the greatest teams in the world and Italian football was number one in the world. Times have changed dramatically since. Today, the tables have completely been reversed. Now, it is the Italian teams that struggle against their English counterparts and it is English football teams that dominate the continent. Against Tottenham on Tuesday [...]

This year’s January transfer was one of the busiest in recent memory. There were major transfers across Europe, particularly in England and in Italy. Amongst the major movers and shakers of the January transfer window was AC Milan. It speaks volumes of the club that, despite entering the New Year top of the table, they felt the need to bring in a number of reinforcements. Here we analyse the purchases Milan have made this past January and whether they will [...]

When the first half of the season came to a close, Milan ended it with a limp one nil defeat at home to Roma. As the New Year began, despite edging past Cagliari in their first match the Rossoneri could only managed draws in their next two matches. It seemed that all of a sudden the league leaders’ challenge for the title was in jeopardy. But, in the last week Milan transfer guru Andrea Galliani engineered three smart, cheap and [...]

Over the weekend Milan continued their push for the Scudetto with a deserving two nil victory over minnows Cesena. In truth, had it not been for some poor finishing it could have been more as the Rossoneri dominated possession and create numerous opportunities. But, in the end two goals was enough to avenge the defeat at the hands of the Sea Horses earlier in the season. More importantly, with the three points Milan were able to maintain their four point [...]

For the second consecutive week Milan failed to claim all three points. An absolute wonder strike by Zlatan Ibrahimovic that was deserving of a match winner was cancelled out late in the game by a Ruben Olivera equaliser. In truth, Max Allegri’s side did not deserve victory. The Rossoneri lacked imagination in the final third and only recorded three strikes on goal in the whole match. Milan dominated possession but this came as little surprise with a midfield comprised of [...]

Earlier this season, even one month ago before the winter break, it seemed as if Juventus finally returned as a force in the Serie A. As most successful club in Italy with more Scudetti than any other club, it was a welcome return indeed. In the summer months Juventus made a number of signings that have aided in their bid to again be champions of Italy. Leonardo Bonucci, Alberto Aquilani, Fabio Quagliarella and star signing of Milos Krasic were astute [...]

When Milan signed Antonio Cassano his arrival was met with much scepticism. Given Cassano’s turbulent past that has seen him in trouble with managers, players and presidents alike, this scepticism was justifiable. The former Bari prodigy is an incredible talent but is also an equally volatile character. It is early days, indeed, and Cassano has only made one appearance for the Rossoneri and it was as a substitute. Nonetheless, the former Sampdoria talisman proved to be a crucial figure in [...]

It is official; Antonio Cassano is now a Milan player. With his arrival the Rossoneri undoubtedly possess the strongest strike force in Serie A and perhaps one of the strongest in Europe. Given the attacking talent already present at Milan, it has come as a surprise that Milan’s first signing, and perhaps last, of the January transfer window was another striker. However, Ronaldinho’s departure from the Rossoneri seems imminent and it is most likely for this reason that Milan have [...]

Once a player, scout and manger for Milan the unthinkable has occurred over the Christmas break after Leonardo agreed to become Inter’s new manager in the New Year. It is unthinkable because after thirteen years with the Rossoneri Leonardo was a Milanista in every sense of the word. Leonardo’s defection to the blue and black half of Milan is nothing short of traitorous. After a successful career as both a player and then later as a scout for Milan, this [...]

Against Bologna last weekend Milan were rampant as they strolled to a convincing victory. In the match before against Brescia, it was much of the same. In fact, it was almost the same as all three of Milan’s goals against Brescia were scored by the same players that put Bologna to rest too in another rampant display. But following these two comprehensive victories coach Max Allegri decided to play largely the same team for the dead rubber encounter with Ajax [...]

The signing of Kevin Prince Boateng in the summer did little to raise hopes about Milan’s upcoming campaign. At this stage the arrivals of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho had not yet materialised and the Milan roster was looking decidedly average. In fact, before the arrivals of the aforementioned two, the Milan squad was quite possibly the weakest ever since Silvio Berlusconi took over in 1985. Little was known about Kevin Prince Boateng upon his arrival in Milan. However, what was [...]
