There is plenty to talk about at the end of the season, especially our first full season under our new management. But in addition to everything on the pitch, fans have created a controversy that is literally larger than life. And I am not happy about it. So for this episode, you get to hear me rant. A lot.

Nothing is better than talking to a true Milan fan. Unless you get to talk to a true Milan fan who has also played professionally. That is why I asked Intern Jonathan on once again. In between rants, we chatted about:

  • News of the Week: Visit from the President, awards, Nesta in Serie B, Italy National Team, contract extension, best keeper in Serie B, Parma promotion, new partnership, Biglia news
  • Season Update: Serie A update
  • Donnarumma Rant: will Elaine’s head explode?
  • Bonucci’s Leadership: meeting Ermanno
  • Coming up: Upcoming matches

 

Thanks again to Jonathan for listening patiently to my rants and being the best intern ever.

After a season of hot and cold performances, looming ahead of us is a cold, dark mercato where there is more confusion than clarity. Despite a meeting with UEFA and a shareholder’s meeting, there are more questions than answers coming from management. And to make matters worse, the future of Mirabelli at Milan is also swirling with rumors and speculation, leaving us further in the depths of confusion

Milan’s recent years have been so traumatic, longtime Milan fan David has become slightly confused about his allegiance. I think he checked out before Allegri left, so he doesn’t realize that Allegri has been at Juve all of these years. You can follow him on Twitter @DavidLSwan to witness the confusion yourself. But I always feel bad for people with traumatic injuries, so I invited him on the podcast again. We discussed:

  • News of the Week: New leaked kits, Ciao Oddo, Pirlo’s big night, second teams coming, Biglia’s injury
  • Season Update: Serie A update
  • Mirabelli rumors: will he stay or go?
  • Financial Update: update on Milan finances
  • Coming up: Upcoming matches

Thanks again to David for being a great sport and for humoring me my fashion expertise. Follow him on Twitter @DavidLSwan to see if you can figure out which team he supports.
