MILAN MUST BE RESTRUCTURED Empty MILAN MUST BE RESTRUCTURED

Post by Forza Sun Nov 03, 2013 2:09 am

Berlusconi, Galliani, your time is up.

Italian, foreigner, oil-rich arab, evil supergenius, Russian mafia, anyone.

Someone buy my club.

What I have seen this season is the worst Milan in my lifetime. Even worse than the infamous "worst Milan in 25 years under Leonardo".

The fact is that coaches come and go, and even the best miracle-makers can only suspend reality for a limited period of time. In goal, we have a rookie and a veteran on a sharp decline; in defence, we have only 1 promising player of the highest quality and he is currently injured; in midfield, we have players who struggle to keep possession and cannot protect against the counter; and in attack, we have players who have poor chemistry together or are injured.

Looking through our list, who can you say is truly Milan class?

De Sciglio, Poli, Montolivo, De Jong, Kaka, Balotelli, El Shaarawy, Pazzini. 8 players. And even then I am being generous. Who on that list is in the class of Pirlo, Gattuso, Shevchenko, Maldini, Nesta, Costacurta, Papin, Weah? That list of truly class players goes on and on.

What do we have in our pack of 8? 3 injured players, and 1 other which our coach doesn't start for reasons known only to him. The rest of our players are either mediocre, inconsistent, too young to prove themselves yet, or just straight-out rubbish.

A team cannot win games when there are only 4 players pulling their weight each and every week. And then what happens if one of Montolivo, De Jong, Kaka or Balotelli have a bad day? Catastrophe.

Some notable exclusions from this list are Mexes and Abate. The former is currently serving a 4 game suspension for punching Chiellini in the face and the latter has had one of his worst seasons to date.

The number of threads and posts in the Milan section about the possible Winter fire sale of all of the players unfit to wear the shirt is a testament to the lack of investment which has plagued the club throughout the Leonardo years and again under Allegri.

We were promised that this would change. We were promised that the club would buy smart and young. We were promised a future of financial sustainability in co-existence with a powerful football team.

We were promised a dream by a corrupt man designed to keep him in power for a while longer.

The warning signs were all there. Ibrahimovic and Silva were sold. Then we just scraped our way into the top 3 last season. Our rivals sold players too: Jovetic, Lavezzi, Cavani, Marquinhos, Lamela. But then they re-invested and strengthened their squads overall. Cuadrado, Higuain, Callejon, Gomez, Mertens, Albiol, Reina, Joaquin, Valero, Roncaglia, Rodriguez, Strootman, Benatia, Ljajic, Gervinho, Maicon. This is a very long list of astute purchases.

In the meantime, the Honda deal was put off, no goalkeeper arrived, and Zaccardo and Silvestre arrived to shore up our defence. And that there was the nail in the coffin. We were short a creative, attacking midfielder, a goalkeeper and, most importantly, we now have a defence that keeps Maldini, Tassoti, Baresi and Costacurta awake at night.

In conclusion, I implore you to sell the club Berlusconi. Sell it now. Start the negotiations immediately. This season is already down the toilet, make sure the next season doesn't go the same way. Milan cannot afford an owner who no longer cares about the club and I cannot take the agony that comes with seeing my team a shadow of its former self.

Post by Dante Sun Nov 03, 2013 11:40 am

Although i agree in general lines , you know and i know and everybody knows that Berlusconi won't sell Milan. Unless someone offers him something close to a billion , there's no way. He will not just sell the club even if we don't win a game all season long . Milan is too big for someone else to buy just like that. There are a few who can , but most of them are clueless about football and most importantly , they will have to invest an amount that is unreal for football standards , the expenses will be huge for anyone who attempts such a move and i really don't expect such a thing to happen. Besides , even if there was a potential buyer , Berlusconi from the few i know at least , is a very proud person , he would never sell Milan willingly.

I would suggest , kindly , not to have such expectations , you are just going to end up being dissapointed and disillusioned. It didn't happen when we were under severe debt and all. Now economicaly speaking , although at the expense of our sporting quality , things are going much better. Since that was the plan for years now , to stabilise the club economicaly and for Milan to be able to be sustained without Berlusconi's money , i guess we always knew that things will be difficult in the foreseeable future.

I would look elsewhere for change . A coach , some players , technical directors and scouters . People like Leonardo who were doing a great job should have never been allowed to leave Milan , or become coach like Galliani thought it would be a nice idea.. It's such stupid stuff that alter our course .

For instance. Galliani has Milan scouters working everywhere and he only gets to loan or sign free players , or unwanted ones from aquintances he has around the football world.. although i can understand that the budget he works on is severely limited to our real needs and if we are to judge by that he has done an impressive work.. many years now the policy is , sign a "champion" every 2 years and spend as less as possible in between. For all Galliani does , it will only get us so far.

Then again , the amount of risk and gambling Galliani has done with the transfers , to pay the least and expect the maximum on the field and that for an extended period of time , lead us to today. A team which can't even field a proper line up of certain quality. Then there's the coach , who's trying to make all that work . 2 summers now he gives a shopping list to Galliani with certain things in it and Galliani returns saying "well , all the best marques have been bought , do with the cheap ones."

That's the reality. Truth is , we need people like Maldini back at the club . Bringing back Rocchi and Inzaghi was a good start , though it still buffles me why Paolo doesn't have a significant role to play. He can do so much to help Milan , even if it was to work as a scouter or even to help with transfers.

In general lines , although we could do with someone who actually wants to make investments , we must never forget the ffp , even though Berlusconi found the perfect excuse when it emerged , lmfao. We must improve elsewise and we can do this , really , even with limited funds.  

What i see , is that there's a lack of proper personel in certain areas . That's it really , once you have that , everything goes down well . Berlusconi for everything we can throw at him , if the need arises he is still allowed to help Milan economicaly. He can absorb some losses , if the situation goes out of hand and we need to invest badly .

But the real pain in the ass , is getting rid of some certain players who for whatever reason , are still there in Milan. We pay too much , it's not that we can't afford to sign good players. It's the bills that hinder us and with the ffp , we cannot really hope to adress everything that is needed properly and we have to wait and exploit whatever opportunity comes along.

Once we get rid of the deadwood and free ourselves of certain wages , we should be able to invest properly. I don't really know when this will be on the cards , but imo it's easy to see what's happening. Galliani is in a very difficult position tbh , never mind the budget he gets to work all these years , with all the risk and gambling he has done , he know finds himself in a position that is difficult to fix. Much of our current status goes on him too , but i don't really know who would do better tbh.

To end this , we need to get another coach prefferably Rijkaard who won't be expensive and he will want this job really bad , bring certain people back at the club like Maldini and most importantly , get rid of some players who don't really deserve to be paid by Milan and then make solid moves like we did with Kaka , Honda and Rami .

Im starting to wonder if Berlusconi ows so much money that he actually wants to suck Milan dry (as if he hasnt alrdy), because there is no leadership here anymore.

I have never understood the point of retiring when you are at the lowest of your low. Berlusconi could have been loved forever by the Milan fans a few years ago, but now he will be remembered for the last couple of years as well, even though he brought a lot of money and success from when he took over in the late 80s.

Berlusconi should have seen that it is not possible for him to copy the german model. Italy and Germany are completely different, and we need financial help like the PL and several other top clubs.

Secret Agent Barbara?

Responding to accusations that she asked for Galliani to be fired:

"I never asked for the change of the ad Adriano Galliani, in the numerous telephone conversations with my father after the defeat against Fiorentina I asked simply for a change of philosophy for Milan"

Anything can happen in football . If i ever learned anything about the game , this is it. All i am saying is that Milan can still do it ; most of our games were a case of underperforming and that won't be the case forever .

We have to get our shits together and once we do , i know we can even finish the remainder of the season undefeated in San Siro . For all our shortcomings and certain limitations , we have the team to do this , don't know how crazy or delusional this may sound at the moment.

My only concern and my biggest worry , will forever be the injuries. If we stay injury free and sadly that is a big if , we have what it takes to break in the top 3 come the end of the season . If we can't stay injury free , then what can i say , wherever we finish the season will be deserved. But there's no doubt in my mind that being injury free and with the right adjustments we can do anything.

The board, manager and the players need to take a cold hard look at themselves. If the players are being constantly protected by the manager but they aren’t stepping up afterwards, then do they deserve to wear the top? Do they deserve our support? We used to have senators, players that gained the most respect in the changing room and on the pitch. Now, there there is no one there to take the mantle and the responsibility when things go bad

Their is no quick fix for the problems we're facing. We have major issues from top to bottom. Sacking Allegri or replacing Galliani (not likely) won't solve many problems. Our biggest issue is the lack of vision from the top, we were told that we're going to follow a youth philosophy yet we buy 2 27 year old. Secondly, we do not have the transfer capabilites as many other clubs. We have opened a page towards self sufficiency, yet how can we allow ourselves to splash cash on players we don't need in positions that don't need reinforcing? If we wanted a CB or AM (Rami & Honda e.g.) Shouldn't have we got them earlier? Lastly this all was thrown together due to lack of planning, and guess what? Now we risk on losing Europe next year. This is devastating news, if that happens we may have to cut wages by 20-30% to accommodate finances. We have the potential to risk losing our big time players.

The board need a shuffle but getting rid of Galliani for lesser qualified, and underprepared people wont solve anything. Redevelop the scouting network, get assistance on the day to day running, formulate a vision of the future. Do SOMETHING to secure a better future! I'm tired of fan appeasing transfers and last minute buys. We blew 6m on Zapata yet Mbiwa, Alderweireld and Chiriches go for 7-8 m? Youth plan indeed Laughing

Won't comment on Allegri because i've raged enough on him, he cannot take all the blame. If worst comes to worse, then the club no longer is suitable to be operated by the people in charge, be it hire new guys or sell the club. We need someone who has a vision, includes a participative strategy and knows how to run the club optimally

Post by Guest Fri Nov 08, 2013 3:54 am

galliani seriously needs to sit down with sporting technical directors and get rid of poor players. this is one of the most important move they should make.

it was wrong to renew the contract of likes of robinho, or bringing fringe players from other clubs like muntari and silvestre (even though silvestre has done good for us).

galliani should end the idea of bringing free transfer! just stop this.

and galliani should stop this stupid alliance with genoa just to bring players.


technical directors position should be reviewed, from scouts to staffs who access the quality of players. braida needs to be fired.


milan should buy players solely based on quality and consistency and NOT BASED ON FORM, or one or two game flashes of brilliance.


veterans should go. and players who have got plenty of chances to prove themselves and not consistently performed should leave.

maldini, albertini whoever names has been linked up should take position of braida so they can bring fresh ideas. players who have won it all, players who have played with legends, they know exactly what kind of players we need and in which areas. time for our staffs( no offense to galliani or braida) who lives on former glory should say goodbye.

i know berlusconi wants authority that has always been a problem. i refuse to believe that there are no interest from foreign investors on milan. problem is that i m damn sure berlusconi doesnt want to give his authority of club, and foreign investor wants their own input apart from investment, that alone will kill our chance for some new investment in club.


fitness/medical/physio sessions, practice and staffs should be reviewed. our players should be strictly asked to follow good fitness routine.


preferably i would like to see our club bring new youth staffs and youth scouts, who assess players strictly on pure quality and potential and has what it takes to be successful to take on senior teams. out of our youth team so far there are barely few players or none who have convinced enough straight away to take on first team. many are sent to loans.

galliani should stop being nice and renew contracts, or give high salary, high bonuses, or too long term contracts. players salary should be strictly paid based on the performances.

anyway these are my ideas.

yea exactly. it pisses me off that udinese napoli even roma, have a better scount network, and they manage to score great talents and sell them off making hefty profit and replace with even better talents!!!!

there is absolutely something milan can also do. problem is that they have stuck with braida or old stafffs who haven't brought any legit talent.

things have gone worse ever since leonardo left.

yea so if galliani and other technical directors have failed to address these issues that even all of us fans can easily notice, then regardless of what paper says or whoever says, Barbara has every reason to get pissed off with Galliani even though he is a great great milan hero and our beloved figure.

i remember in 2008 in shareholders meeting galliani was made to seriously meet objective to win scudetto and do well in CL. in which he succeeded to win Scudetto. also was asked to cut deficit in which he successfully did the next year with just 8 million losses.


so now shareholders in the end of the seasons should question these issues like coaches, scouts, technical directors, finance, players, medical stafffs, etc. absolutely!! that should be big priority. i know galliani can do it.

there has been a lot of serious talk about galliani and braida getting kicked out of management in favour of Maldini and albertini. i dont give a f. about braida but with galliani its a pain but i have to admit, i am certain to get backslash but i am willing to see galliani go if indeed maldini and albertini are in position to be put in control of our club.

sorry galliani .

Post by Dante Fri Nov 08, 2013 12:50 pm

Can we change the name of the title , pls. Milan must be restructured , not sold , no need for that.

There's a few good suggestions Jesp. Agreed. Well , not on everything , but there are some solid mentions , especially with regards to Braida. What is he still doing in Milan , especially after so many fails with suggested talents , i will never know. #Fire

Truth be told , i've moaned about Paolo since what now , must be at least 2010. I won't bother to explain myself again , Paolo should have an important role to play within the club and that was yesterday. If Albertini was returning back in Milan in a high rank , it's something that would definitely please me. Such moves must happen , we need people with new ideas along with their passion for Milan to get back on track. And Albertini fits all the requirements.

I would also bring back Leonardo to resume his former job . One of Galliani's biggest mistakes , ever. Altering his work in the club , not only resulted in bad fortunes on the field , but we also missed the real work he did with poaching real talent from Brazil. On top of that , he did some fine work at PSG as well , he's very capable. Bring him back too , if possible and if he wants to return.

Maldini should supervise the team as sporting director , like a general captain of the team if you like , Albertini and Leonardo as technical directors should be working along with the Coach & Maldini for transfers and sales of players who did less than expected. Galliani should just do what he's good at , bringing players in , assess finances , look to the contracts and sponsors , that's his real job ; listen to the people below him , see what's possible and what's not possible and then execute.

He's a CEO ffs , he doesn't have to nor he must do all the things he does . Of course he's not going to succeed in everything. Even though he has had some good ideas with regards to players over the years , his opinion is that of yesterday , mostly . Let him continue his job if he wants , Galliani for all the bs he has made all these years , he has done so much for Milan , anybody who doesn't realise this is a criminal and i am pretty sure all know Galliani genuinely loves Milan. All i am saying is , if he doesn't have an issue with it , we should ease the burden off his shoulders . But if he wants to continue his current role without certain new faces helping him out , then i am sorry but he has to step down.

Anyhow , i hope he's not too proud and should accept critisicm . Most importantly , accept a new reality for the good of Milan. It's clear he shouldn't be doing this alone , because Braida and Gandini , wtf and Berlusconi farting on Milan , he's all alone . With the right people working with him and a somehwat good budget to help things along , there's no else in the world that can do better than him , nobody.

I want Galliani to continue if that's what he wants , but certainly not to have so many duties .

Oh something i somehow forgot to say . Galliani V Barbara : Fake .

That's a clear move to ease attention from the team's struggles atm , i am pretty sure all that was either Galliani's or Berlusconi's idea Laughing.. I didn't and i won't buy that for a sec , the strategy is pretty clear to me :coffee:

There's no true rift within the club , imho. Although that there have to be harsh decisions come the end of the season , all over our ranks , of that i have no doubt , that i leave aside . Galliani just let the word out for pure distraction-attention reasons in order to ease the buttpain of the players and imho there's no such thing as " Me or Her thing" as it's being reported , lmfao. Barbara will never become anything close to Galliani , never. Herself knows that , Berlusconi knows that . And besides , Galliani knows for all he is , he can't really put that me or her on the table even if he wanted something like that , just because of who see is. People really have to think twice when they talk about Galliani , it's never , never , what it seems with regards to him.

And there's also proof , Tuttosport is talking about this G V BB whole case for days now . It's a fake alright Laughing

It's between Braida and Galliani, either that Braida hasn't been doing his job properly (looking at players who'd suit our needs) or just that Galliani has been ignoring his suggestions. Irrespective of that, I completely hate Milan's approach towards the press and the other clubs when it comes to transfers. The way we behaved during the Aquilani saga just portrays a total lack of respect from a neutral point of view. And the fact that we're going to lowball even if it's pennies, means that we're extremely hopeless on the transfer front.

MILAN MUST BE RESTRUCTURED Empty Re: MILAN MUST BE RESTRUCTURED

Post by arabprince Sat Nov 09, 2013 2:49 pm

A new era of Berlusconi!

After getting to know the club inside out, the 29-year-old daughter of owner, Silvio, is now poised to launch her bid to assume power at San Siro and revamp the Rossoneri



Barbara Berlusconi has made her move for control of AC Milan. According to an ANSA article published last Sunday, the daughter of club owner Silvio effectively asked her father to allow her to oversee a Rossoneri revolution. Lady B, as she has been christened by the Italian press, effectively called for not only a change of direction, but a change of leadership, thus putting her on a collision course with CEO Adriano Galliani.

While she has the backing of her dad, Silvio, the former Italian PM still has close ties with Galliani. Indeed, together, they turned Milan into one of the most dominant forces in Europe.

However, Lady B is a woman with a plan and below we outline the five things she intends to do to not only take control of Milan but also restore the Rossoneri to their former glory ...

TWO INTO ONE DOESN'T GO: BYE-BYE, GALLIANI!

Barbara Berlusconi stopped being the president's daughter the moment the ANSA article was published. The story, which seems to have been based on sound inside information, made it clear that she is no longer just a guest in someone else's home, nor just passing through. Lady B has come out of the shadows she remained in for so long and emerged as a viable heir to the throne.

She entered San Siro on her tiptoes. She observed. She studied. She learned. She always respected the roles of others and remained on the sidelines. Until now. Now, she feels ready to give the club a new identity. Indeed, while she denied calling on Galliani to be sacked, she did admit that she wants a 'change of club philosophy'. Essentially, Lady B wants to break with the past and face the future in a different, more dynamic way.

To do this, however, she must overcome the resistance of tradition; she must assume power, which currently rests in the hands of Galliani. Her father Silvio will seek a peaceful alliance between the pair, but achieving harmony between such very different characters is not always possible. Indeed, it's difficult to navigate choppy waters when you have two people rowing in opposite directions.

RECOVER SOME OF MILAN'S OLD DNA: BRING BACK MALDINI


It's funny how renewal can often involve drawing on the past. Paolo Maldini was, for many, the personification of Milan: attractive, talented and successful. He wore the Rossoneri jersey for years, embodying a style that Milan now seem to have lost. Ending his ostracism would help the club regain their 'DNA' and thus erase the shameful dispute surrounding his farewell match that resulted in a deafening silence from the club at the time.

Re-integrating Maldini would help Berlusconi distance her project from the old regime. Indeed, it's no secret that Galliani has never had any great rapport with the former Milan captain. The problem, if anything, would be finding the right role for Maldini within the club. It must be a legitimate role, not an ambassadorial position, as Maldini has always stressed himself. The question is, though: does he have managerial skills?

HUNT FOR A NEW SPORTING DIRECTOR: PRADE'S ON POLE


Galliani has thus far been almost omnipresent at Milan, involved in particularly every aspect of the running of the club. That which was beyond him was left to Ariedo Braida. However, the role of sporting director still has to be filled.

The favourite for this particular position would be Daniele Prade, the well-respected Fiorentina director who previously worked with Roma. Over the years, Prade has accrued a lot of influential friends within the game and developed considerable management skills. Barbara is a known admirer of Prade's work, but he's not the only candidate. Juventus' Fabio Paratici, for example, is also held in very high esteem.

MORE SCOUTING, LESS AGENTS: NO TO RAIOLA


Building a worldwide scouting network is one of Lady B's goals. In times such as these, when money is short, you have to open your mind and sharpen your focus. Being there first to sign up exciting young talent would give Milan an edge over their rivals. It would result in less money going out on players and more coming in when they decide to sell established stars on to other clubs. Therefore, the motto will be: more scouting and less agents.

Consequently, Lady B intends to stick the boot/high heel into Mino Raiola, who currently has six players on Milan's books. That's too much power for one man, as far as Berlusconi is concerned. Milan want to be masters of their own market and reduce the influence of agents and advisors on their playing staff.

KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY: PIPPO OR SEEDORF ON THE BENCH


The new coach will be a former Rossonero, 'one of the family'. Barbara seems to have inherited her father's fondness for a Milanista on the bench (Fabio Capello, Cesare Maldini, Carlo Ancelotti, Leonardo etc.), as she quite publicly spoke with youth team coach Pippo Inzaghi at Camp Nou in midweek. Lady B could make a fresh start with the legendary goal-poacher, but it is worth noting that former Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf, who was linked with the position last summer, remains a firm favourite with dad Silvio.

Some time agao, Barbara made a point of saying that the doors at Milanello are always open to the Dutch, with whom they've had a historic association dating back to the days of Van Basten, Gullit and Rijkaard. That's why appointing Seedorf would - just like bringing back Maldini - herald a new dawn, while at the same time serving as respectful nod to the past. It would be a clear sign that the winds of change are sweeping through Milan - again!

I for one am COMPLETELY in favour of this. Last year, I was totally against the idea of seedorf/pippo coaching, i'm still not 100% convinced, but bringing back our legends is a start. We need to revamp this club and get rid of all of this complacency. I'm totally in favour of Barbara! cheers

MILAN MUST BE RESTRUCTURED Empty Re: MILAN MUST BE RESTRUCTURED

Post by Guest Sat Nov 09, 2013 11:54 pm

i want galliani to move on Dante because with Galliani yes he is a great negotiator, he keeps finance in balance, but at the same time when it comes to the person in charge he has not assured that teams remains in good quality. when we had problems before season starts, and thats not just one season he keeps on saying we are ok,we dont need anybody. i dont like his genoa alliance, or signing free transfers or getting players on loan from inter or other clubs. short term fix is not good enough for clubb like us and we have been doing that over and over again.

and galliani has been too soft, when our players dont perform, i understand that they need to be left in peace, but not with mediocre players. i still dont get it that robinho or other players are given contract extension.

with barbara maldini and albertini rumor or not, i like the idea. barbara had been saying that she would like young milan following german club model. with maldini and albertini it is possible. maldini wants some role in his club still for sure. and with albertini, he is one of the major guy when working in FIGC was the first one to push clubs to have B teams so that youth players dont just disappear.

we cant just go on short term fix and again and again. galliani keeps on saying we cant compete financially with other clubs. but finance isnt the problem here. we have more sporting and technical related problems than finance!!

galliani has failed to see this, so i dont mind actually to see some changes. sure milan is a family galliani is a hero. but milan must find a new fresh start.

otherwise we keep doing this, our club will become worse, and we will risk loosing our own talents like el sharawwy and even hachim mastour who will want to play with club who challenges for top prize, and future talents who doesnt want to come in our club.

nowadays no youngsters says we want to play for milan. and this is super sad.

so seriously rumour or not, i want a change i really am praying for that. even if it means galliani should step down. with sad goodbyes, milan can make a very good decision here with the likes of maldini and albertini and can look forward.

maldini and albertini for sure will be damn serious enough to acknowledge the quality of our players and will assess and bring better players for sure .. no question about it. they have played with not just champions but legends, they exactly know what kind of players we want!

galliani on the other hand with braida pretty much is bringing players based on financially viable situation and based on form. and that has made our club even worse

MILAN MUST BE RESTRUCTURED Empty Re: MILAN MUST BE RESTRUCTURED

Post by Dante Fri Nov 15, 2013 2:42 pm

Word around in Italy is that Uncle Fester is going to leave Milan come the end of the season. I always thought Galliani would leave along with Berlusconi , i guess only time will tell. Tbh , i doubt he's going to hand the presidents chair to BB. On the other hand , Galliani may be out either this way or the other.

One thing is certain , even though BB is supposedly higher than him in the hierarchy being a member of the board of directors AKA at Milan board of shareholders , in practice above him is only Berlusconi since he's also vice president and i really doubt Galliani would accept having Barbara pulling the strings above him. I don't buy the one V teh other stuff , but obviously Galliani is too proud to have BB who he knew from a baby tell him what to do with Milan when he's running things at Milan for years and years.

I don't know what will happen but as far as such matters go , i'd say i actually trust Berlusconi to take the right decisions.

Whatever we can throw at him , throughout his history at Milan , if there ever was a man to take important decisions and find the right people for Milan , that was Berlusconi. Obviously Galliani has found the perfect scapegoat in Allegri in recent years , almost everybody think that he's the sauce of all evil for our misfortunes , but fans in Italy know better. They know that we obviously could have a better coach , ok , but they understand Milan's real problems which leaves Allegri as the least of them.

It should be clear by now that Berlusconi because of his political career has set a certain path for Milan , a path that requires Milan to be able to sustain itself without one mans money each season. On top of that , there's the FFP that in one way or the other , sooner or later , it will affect football and we were one of the first teams to embrace it's policy. Even more , the policy that Berlusconi wants Milan to follow is one that is actually succesfull , that of the Germans. The thing is and where he is massively at fault(?) , that it should be an easy and mixed transition towards that road , not a drastic and fast forward one like he opted to do , because it has had and it will obviously continue to have short term consequences for Milan on the field. Although on the other hand .. the benefits of all this will arrive a lot sooner.

All our free signings and loans and stuff like that ain't just Galliani's ways or choices. Above all it's a clear sign of recuperation ; all these years before 2008 we made headlines with our transfers and wages .. that happened for many years in succesion and if we want Milan to one day stand on it's feet without Berlusconi's money and be able to compete and be financialy safe , we need to be patient . On top of that , Berlusconi above all had enough of spending big , but that doesn't mean we should just want another rich sugardady to pay up. The foundations which he laid along with Galliani after 2008 were actually the right choice for Milan , despite his relactance to spend . I always thought he ditched all that when he signed Ibrahimovic and Robinho and all that , but obviously that was because Inter won the treble and wanted to safe face. We couldn't sustain such standards in this "shape" , financialy.


Idk when . But each season i hope it ends and each season it goes on , but it will end at some point and that's inevitable.
Our fortunes will get better , both on and off the field , of that i have no doubt . It's just the meantime that is difficult to deal with. It's like when teams built a new stadium , you don't see many transfers or huge wages to attract important players.. almost all teams just survive in these periods and we are no different , albeit we are always a class above whatever our quality.  

I want to believe good progress is being made each season we don't spend big , not to spend big when the time comes , but to be able to sustain ourselves whatever we do each season on the field and adress matters like we want , when we have to. We've made mistakes in recent years , but i believe we are on the right path . The youth policy , being financialy safe & progressive , the restructuring of the club ... all that will bond sooner than we realise and things will become a lot different to what they seem now. Berlusconi may be a scumbag and all sorts of things , but when it's down to running business , few can have the same effect as him . You can see that even from Milan's past. Things may be difficult right now but i expect the "new Milan" to regain it's place to where we belong , competiting in the big stage.

As for keeping Allegri. Allegri is finished , he had his chances and served his purpose for the club. It's irritating to see all the ditching he has suffered but not many can see through the fog . Things may suck today but it wasn't always like that with Allegri , he had his fair share of moments and gave a hand to our future too. That all the circumstances and surroundings made him look like the antichrist Laughing, that's hardly his fault and it's obvious he's not a quiter and he wants to fight back against all odds. He succeeded for a while and he can't do that all the time , nobody can succeed without proper support and we can't really offer that right now. This will be his last season and i am quite certain if we had a ready replacement right now , he would be past already. The thing is at Milan and especially when it's down to Berlusconi , he doesn't just get people . He finds the right people for the job at hand. These years the job at hand suited Allegri , either fans like that or not , it did. Allegri wasn't Berlusconi's choice and it's common secret he would ditch him right away but he understands the situation we experience lately better than everyone , if he could fire him without consequences he would have done so by last season. Without the right replacement , not only it would be pointless but it can't happen as long as Berlusconi is the president.

Kakà: "I don't want to play in front of the defence, and Allegri doesn't want me to play there. I'll play in the role as trequartista."

meanwhile ...

Allegri: "Kakà can play in front of the defence. He has great qualities, and he is always involved in our plays.

f..k allegri sack him!!! he is going to upset and unbalance and ruin everything and team morale is in all time low. it couldnt get worse here!!!

as far as i am concerned, allergi is piling problems on top of all these messed up problems we have already!!!


seriously i mean what are they waiting for!!!! this guy deserved to get kicked out of milan !
