One of the first things that Seedorf did when he was hired was to have the team pick out a song to come out onto the pitch to at the San Siro. Together, they picked “Can’t Hold Us” By Macklemore featuring Ray Dalton, and the rest of their season embodied the spirit of this song. So while we looked back on the performances of this painful season and also look forward to the great unknown that is this summer’s mercato, I thought we as fans could take inspiration from the team and look to the future like the ceiling can’t hold us.

Bringing the DAI DAI DAI, I had two guests this time. Representing the DAI DAI DAI blog were both writers, Pete and Dave. We looked back on this season:

• News of the Week: Atalanta fans, Galliani’s complaining, Berlusconi alienates fans… again, Rocco Maiorino promoted to SD, and Casa Milan unveiled. 

• Reviews: Serie A week 37 at Atalanta, Serie A week 38 vs. Sassuolo

• Player Season Ratings: ratings of each player based on their performances this season on a scale of 1-10

• Seedorf’s Report Card: Rating Seedorf so far and discussing whether or not he should stay

 

Thanks again both Pete and Dave for helping with our player season ratings for this season! Follow Pete @PDAcquaviva and Dave @DaveLambComedy on Twitter and check out the DAI DAI DAI blog at pdacquaviva.com. And if you’re in the Boston area, go see Dave’s standup at Dick Doherty’s this weekend!

In case you hadn’t heard, Milan won the Derby on Sunday for the first time in nearly three years. On that high this podcast was recorded, albeit with a healthy fear of playing in the Europa League. We also look to next season, specifically Seedorf’s future as well as the fate of a beloved player and Milanista.
