When this podcast began three years ago as a personal challenge, I never dreamed that I would still be spending an ungodly number of hours editing these things in 2016. However, it has been so much fun to have different fans on discussing Milan, I can’t imagine life without it. All 70 of them, specifically. It has been a fun way to interact with fans on top of the blog and Twitter. So for that, along with the signs of improvement with the team and a couple of other milestones coming up later this week, it seems like it’s time to celebrate 

A milestone like this required going back to the roots of Milan Obsession, when my dear friend Jovan and I co-founded the blog. Now he is the genius mastermind of a suite of fantasy football sites, including fantasyseriea.com. While catching up on all things Milan, we talked about:

  • News of the Week: De Jong’s farewell, all things Kucka, Donnarumma the kid, Luiz Adriano hair update, Water Bottlegate 2016
  • Season Update: summary of the recent matches
  • Mercato Update: transfer updates post-mercato
  • The Demise of Inter: exquisite schadenfreude
  • Coming Up: a look ahead and an important date for 2 different reasons

Thanks again to Jovan for a great podcast and for his part in the roots of Milan Obsession. Check out fantasyseriea.com and his other sites, where it’s still not too late to get in on head to head action from now until the end of the season.

Nothing could follow the most deliciously epic Derby win on Sunday, but I had to try. I stopped my laughter and screaming and wiped away my tears of joy and set out to talk about all things Milan with a massive smile on my face. The Derby win was a moment of healing and a reprieve from all that fans have endured in the past few years, as well as a gigantic slap in the face to our most hated rivals, something fans could only dream of before today. But after the celebrations are over, there are other games to be played, and so much to look forward to.

An epic win required an epic guest, and luckily @RedCardWeekly’s Steve was available. Which is impressive given his newest venture, vintagepitch.com, where you can order some killer new vintage themed Serie A t-shirts. You can keep up on the new designs and releases by following @VintagePitch. Despite our exquisite joy following that delicious win, we were able to discuss:

  • News of the Week: Primavera success, Ely surgery, set piece woes, epic retirement, goal line technology news, coaches behaving badly, a use for Montolivo
  • Season Update: summary of the recent matches
  • Mercato Update: transfer news
  • Europe or no Europe: should Milan even qualify?
  • Coming Up: a look ahead

 

Thanks again to Steve of @RedCardWeekly for joining be back on earth after a stellar win to talk all things Milan. Go now to vintagepitch.com to order your awesome Serie A t-shirts and be sure to follow @VintagePitch on Twitter for new designs and releases.
