Usually it seems like there isn’t as much going on during international breaks for Milan fans. But despite having fewer players called up than we have in a long time, there is actually a lot to talk about. And it’s not just Milan’s performances or even the players who were called up by their national teams. The Curva Sud are still demanding answers and there are changes being made in Serie A, too. And yet it still kind of feels like instead of a just an International break, things everywhere in Italy are just simply broken. 

I was lucky enough to be joined once again by David, a rare Milan fan in England who actually has Milan season tickets and catches as many games as he can. You can follow him on Twitter @DavidLSwan (the L is for Legend) and also check out his site, which is a fantastic reference for the business side of Milan all translated for you into English. For this episode, we chatted about:

• News of the Week: Menexes, Cesare Maldini speaks, 7th place, epic Twitter announce

• Season to Date: our results from Serie A

• Curva Sud Boycott: talking with a Curva Sud season ticket holder

• International Break: #ConteOut 

• FIGC Rule Changes: financial changes for stability

• Coming Up: Upcoming matches and what to look for 

My sincerest thanks again to David for blessing us with his presence. You can follow him on Twitter @DavidLSwan and definitely check out his amazing resource of a site at Cheers!

Since nothing is really happening on the pitch, there isn’t a lot of football to talk about. Especially without midweek games in Europe. And there isn’t much to talk about off the pitch, either. Milan is barely treading water, and as fans, it can be hard to find anything worth talking about that hasn’t already been said. But that didn’t stop us from trying. So anyway…
