Thursday Milan Musings

New, comments

With an International break on the horizon I have decided to take the weekend off from posting, but will resume in earnest next week. In the meantime if you need your AC Milan Offside fix you can now follow the blog on Twitter, why I have done such a thing I don't know, the normal person would have gone the Facebook route but the whole idea of people tagging me on their wall gives me the creeps, so Twitter won the battle of the lesser of the two evils. In the meantime here is your musings...

-Thank goodness the International break is upon us because both Luca Antonini and Cristian Abbiati suffered injuries against Parma. Amelia should stand in fine for Abbiati who currently leads Serie A with the best goal against average, while Luca Antonini should be back in action with one of those fancy masks, to bad his won't say Pazzo.
ITALY SOCCER SERIE A

-Surprise surprise, Rino Gattuso did not get along with Leo! Rino comes across as the type of guy who either loves you; therefore fighting everyone or anything for you, or he just plain doesn't like you. Hopefully if I ever come across him I fall into the like category, I wouldn't want to cross that guy...

-Gianluca Zambrotta has been recalled by Cesare Prandelli, this is when I simply ask why? The guy has clearly lost a step and why the National Team can't move on with guys like Cassani and Balzaretti is completely beyond me. Borriello has earned a call back, rightfully so with his goals for Roma, Gila Part II anyone?? But his tirade toward Ranieri doesn't fly on any team, keep your mouth shout when you get subbed, the Coach always knows better than you.

-The Atomic Ant, Sebastian Giovinco, has joined the list of players who supported AC Milan as a child. Considering now that Guiseppe Rossi, Mario Balotelli, and now Giovinco have all confessed their past love and none of them actually play for Milan it is safe to say the loving the Club is probably a kiss of death. Especially when the Club doesn't seem to be a fan of you!? Hmm, maybe if they were from a certain Country in South America we would be ogling them like Berlu ogles teenagers!? Stop for a minute an imagine a 4-2-3-1 with those three behind Zlatan, it would be the most dynamic, youthful, and exuberant attack Milan has seen in ages, forget I even mentioned it because it will NEVER HAPPEN.

-Robinho, Pato, and Silva have all been called up for National team duty, Ronaldinho is still waiting patiently by the phone. If it wasn't for weight limits on suitcases he may have snuck on with one of his mates...

-Milan are after right winger Pedro Leon...a winger?? Really?? Are we trying to catch lightning in a bottle twice with a winger into a FB?? Not willing to chance it, in the words of Mourinho Pedro Leon is not Maradona, Pele, and he sure as hell is not Serginho. Let me make this clear Fester, we don't need any more attackers...

-Following the International break the schedule is going to get really hectic with Serie A, CL matches, and even the Coppa Italia on the horizon. Allegri will need all hands on deck and hopefully the players not called up are being worked to fitness.
