According to rumors, winning five straight after a season like this gets you sacked. After winning two straight games at home, the prospect of Europa League qualification also looms more closely, too. And welcoming back last season’s young hero from injury just raises even more questions about the summer and next year. It’s the home stretch of a dysfunctional season, and so there is plenty to talk about.


My guest this time was Vinny of the fantastic Red Card Weekly YouTube show with two devout Milan fans wrapping up Serie A and football in general each week. We discussed:


• News of the Week: Don’t Mess with the Crest™, Annual “bored” meeting, Seedorf news


• Reviews: Serie A week 33 vs. Catania, Serie A week 34 vs. Livorno


• Upcoming Matches Preview: Serie A week 35 at Roma, Serie A week 36  the Derby della Madonnina vs. Inter


• Prognosis: Europa League Qualification


• Player Spotlight: Stephan El Shaarawy

It may be hard to believe after this season, but Milan have won three in a row. And not just any three games, either. The winning extends beyond the pitch, though, with the new Casa Milan officially unveiled and new commercial ventures being sought in what seems to be the best efforts yet to acquire a new stadium in the near future. After so much heartbreak, it seems that Milan are back to winning ways, and the future looks red and black.


Today’s podcast features another new guest, Anthony, also known as @sportscaddy. He is a young journalist who is a featured writer for the Bleacher Report UK and also writes for A Football Report. He is aldo one of the admins for the AC Milan Club NY/NJ. We discussed:
