In the round of 16’s final games, Qasa Alom looks ahead to Bayern Munich trying to avenge last seasons’ Final loss at the hands of Inter, and Jose Mourinho attempting to prove why he’s called the Special One …again. Eto’o rolls the ball out to the left wing where Diego Milito lurks, like a predator he strolls towards the goal in the most calm and composed fashion…Van Buyten backtracks with his pupils dilated and arms flailing around, he knows he [...]

Milan’s away match against Juventus was supposed to be a huge test of their  minerals. Qasa Alom evaluates what we learnt about the rossoneri in their bid for an 18th scudetti. 1. Thiago Silva cannot afford to be pushed up into midfield against Spurs. When Alessandro Nesta and Thiago Silva play together – Milan do not concede goals. It is as simple as that. Milan have kept 12 clean sheets in the league this season; of which 10 have come [...]

As AC Milan host Tottenham Hotspurs in the round of 16 first leg, Qasá Alom highlights why all eyes will be on Ibra… Zlatan Ibrahimovic has an enviable domestic record that’s seen him win league titles seven years consecutively*, for four different teams and in the process scoring 112 goals in 211 appearances.

Fiorentina shocked the Rosanero in an open affair to celebrate their first away win of the season. Qasa Alom reports… ‘Meh’ is probably the most fitting interjection for Fiorentina this season…. they sit in 10th place, with a +1 goal difference, 8 wins, 8 draws  and (yup you’ve guessed it) 8 losses to their name. However after such an indifferent, forgettable and “meh” season, Viola fans finally have something to remember as they scored four away goals to beat a [...]

With a run of 4 draws and only 3 wins so far, it’s fair to say that 2011 has not started quite how Milanisti envisaged it to. Qasa Alom ponders whether a change of formation could bring about a resurgence of form. Taking a look at the form tables from around the continent at the moment, there are three teams in particular who stand out; Napoli maintain their good form to remain in second place, Udinese continue defying the odds [...]

Qasa Alom reports… Back in week 2 Cesena made the dream start to life in Serie A, defeating Milan to sit pretty at the top of the table, whilst many doubts loomed over the work ethic and cohesion of Milan’s attack.

As Andrea Lazzari looks set to follow ex-boss Allegri to Milan, Qasa Alom explains why this might be a bad move for all parties concerned. Highly rated managers often have a tendency of taking former players with them to bigger clubs; Jose Mourinho took a fleet of players with him to Chelsea after winning the Champions League and subsequently brought R. Carvalho to Madrid too.  However is Massimiliano Allegri’s desire to bring his former disciple Andrea Lazzari necessary? I think [...]

AC Milan failed to extend their lead at the top of the table to 6 points as a spirited Lecce pegged them back to a 1-1 draw. Qasa Alom reports. Before the game Max Allegri said that his team were coming into a key 6 match period and that could’nt have gotten off to a worse star!
