24th May

For the rest of the Footballing world and fans It’s called Transfer Market Season. For Milan fans it’s “We are fine as we are” Season. Even the greenest Milan fan knows that the Last 2 Mercato’s left a LOT to be desired especially that Mr.X Rubbish. Seriously,In what universe would Fans of a team be excited to Find one Alberto Aquilani as the coveted Mr.X.. Oh wait i know one team which vowed to not let him walk alone.

What do we expect from this season ? At the time of writing this we already have the Long Expected Riccardo Montolivo and Bakaye “Who’s That ?” Traore as our new signings. Montolivo is like a cold shower in Sahara while most of us have no idea what Bakaye can do.

Also close is Francesco Acerbi who is owned 50/50 by Genoa and Chievo. Once Genoa (virtually our feeder team) buy the 50% back from Chievo expect him to show up at Milanello right away. Will it be a good signing ? Well, he was named in the Serie A best XI last season.

As usual Milan are linked to hoards of other Players. The strongest among them remain The Young Kevin Strootman from PSV and Nuri Sahin of the Real Madrid Fame. that’s all it takes to get us Naive fans excited really. Their agents have been Seen at Via Turati as they are constantly linked to other clubs too. The usual. Does Milan need them ? Hell yes. Will they come ? Depends on how cheap Galliani is this time.

The other Matter which concerns Milanisti is Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva. The Match against Novara had barely ended that they were linked to every major european club and when Mancini was seen with Galliani in Milan, it was thought certain that both would leave. The Spanish bullies, Madrid and Barca are after Ibra and Thiago resp. and well we know what they can do. Galliani and co. have denied all the rumors as usual. Make what you will of it ?

What do i think ? I personally think that As much as they want to groom Thiago Silva to be the new captain and as much as he has proclaimed his love for Rossoneri, he will leave Given a chance. He’s come up the hard way and is unlikely to let go of a better chance.

Ibrahimovic on the other hand truly loves the Team and the players however don’t forget that he is a professional footballer. As his past proves, there are no loyalties. Ibrahimovic is sure to wait till the fag end of the transfer market to see if Galliani and co. keep their promises. If this transfer market remains the same as last one, i don’t see Ibra being willing to stay and be the one man team again. It’s as simple as that.

Alessandra Bocci, the head of the Milan desk at Gazetta and a personal Friend of Allegri’s Proclaimed that Neither of the two stars will leave Milan this season. In the same breath she also went on to claim that Milan are not interested in Sahin. Well then why was his agent with Galliani yesterday Missy ?

This is how it will be till 31st august. We know the routine don’t we ?

Milan 2 – 1 Novara – The Farewell to Legends

(more…)


Grazie Alessandro Nesta !

alessadro Nesta  Milan Career winnings

When people from our Generation grow old and kids talk about some new Hot shot defender ..We’ll act unimpressed and say “He’s no Nesta”.

There’s a tear in the eye of ever Milanista Today. After giving Ten years of Faithful Service, Sandro Nesta Leaves AC Milan earning 2 Scudetti, 2 CL Trophies, 1 Coppa Italia, 2 Supercoppi, 2 UEFA Super cup and 1 FIFA Club World Cup in the process.

30th August 2002, The day sun shined the brightest over Milanello and Lazio Captain Alessandro Nesta signed for AC Milan. Since then Milan fans and Ultras have etched the popular number 13 in their hearts.

Soon It was Feburary 2012 and as usual AC Milan are challenging for Champions League and the Scudetto. Quietly, In his mind Sandro Nesta has decided to Leave AC Milan as he feels that he is not good enough for Top Level European Football. Galliani, Berlusconi, Allegri, All of them Would try to convince him to stay one more season but Our Dear No.13 was always headstrong.

Nesta is smart in life as he is on the pitch. Unlike Senatores Like Seedorf,Oddo and Kaladze he didn’t take forever to realize that perhaps he couldn’t give Top Class performances day in day out at the Top Level of european Football.

Yes we are Sad, very sad that he is leaving. People are crying for him to give us one more year. Perhaps. However for Nesta it’s too much of a risk to take. All through these years he had a spotless reputation as a Flawless Defender, the last of the Classic Italian Center Backs.

But Fan’s memories are fickle. It’s too easy to wipe out all the good work by a few bad performances. Ask Clarence Seedorf. It’s clear that Nesta doesn’t want to go the way of Inzaghi, Struggling to get a foot in the First Team. So perhaps this is the right time to call it quits. Go out while still on top, head held high.

He leaves us with the great memories of this last season, particularly the times when he made Messi Question himself. It’s pretty likely that Nesta will head to NYRedBulls. He had previously mentioned that one of his Dreams was to open a football academy in Florida after he retires.

As we watch Sandro Captain Milan against Novara in his Last Game for the Italian Giants, We all will secretly vow never to forget what Sandro gave us this past decade.. Grazie Sandro 13.

Goodbye Clarence Seedorf !

For the last few years, Milan Fans have had a love hate relationship with Clarence Seedorf. There still remain the faithful few who consider him an evergreen Legend, however the Majority of Milanisti feel that he is few years past his expiry date, christening him with Monickers like Slowdorf and ShitDorf. The ones who feel that his contract should be renewed (shudder !!) are simply Interistas in disguise.

Even though Seedorf may come up with a Goal or an assist every ten games or so, he’s a liability to Milan’s Gameplay. It’s also the sheer incompetence of Galliani’s management that a player who should have left in 2007 is still playing for us.

For a player whose widely considered a gentleman and an intellectual, Seedorf should have had the good sense to leave when it was over. By overstaying his welcome, Clarence has left a bad taste in the mouths of most Milanisti who otherwise would’ve been eternally grateful for his contributions.

So Someone please call Mr.Seedorf a Taxi, The time to leave has come. For all it’s worth Clarence, we will shed a tear when you leave…. A tear of Joy !
