Milan 3, Salernitana 3: Emotional Overload

For both clubs, their fates were decided ahead of this match. Milan had sealed second place, and Salernitana knew they would be relegated. Therefore, the 3-3 draw with Salernitana was actually the secondary story to so many emotions. And Milan's new kit launch was almost a non-story. Pioli made sure that the players whose contracts are up all got some playing time, while the players were primarily focused on sending Pioli off in the best way possible. From a giant circle of hugs before kickoff, to a guard of honor, touching speeches, chants from the fans, tossing Pioli in the air, and one ..read more

Milan-Salernitana Preview: Curtain Call

Saturday is not only the last match of the season, it is the last Milan match ever for Giroud, Kjaer, and we know now that it will also be Pioli's last match in charge as well. Who knows who else will leave this summer, as this management do not know the definition of loyalty and definitely are not putting their money where their mouths are when it comes to selecting a new manager. Many of us Milan fans have said all along that there is no point in sacking Pioli unless you have a better manager lined up. Fonseca, their reported choice, does not appear to be better in any way at all, he's ..read more

Torino 3, Milan 1: Going Down In Flames

Just looking at the lineups felt ominous, like when you smell gasoline and hear someone about to strike a match. It was perfect that Pioli would choose to be remembered like this, leaving so many starters on the bench, allowing the bench players to create a deficit too big for the starters to come on and dig them out of. The 3-1 loss away to Torino definitely gave burning down the house vibes. But to be fair, fans online gave up on this team ages ago, and the Curva Sud have boycotted now four weeks in a row. How can they expect the team to show up or care when the fans could care less? It feel ..read more

Milan 5, Cagliari 1: Silencing the Fans

After a really rough month without a win, Milan came back with a vengeance against poor, relegation-threatened Cagliari. Like Mina's shirt that Giroud tore less than ten minutes into the match, Milan took out their aggression by dominating possession and came out on top with a 5-1 win over Cagliari in front of the still silent Curva Sud at the San Siro. And while the Curva had put up a large banner for the duration of the match that indicated that Milan were "unsatisfied," it must have been confusing to the casual viewer, who saw Serie A's second place team shred their opposition with five goa ..read more

Milan 3, Genoa 3: The Price of Silence

Milan had four matches left in this season, three of them home games. After protesting the Juventus match last week completely for their own political purposes, one might think that the Curva Sud would be back in full force to support the team they claim to love "In good times and in bad" for this one. But no. Completely stuck in their 1899 Ultra ways, these Karens demanded to speak to the manager by observing a silent protest as Milan hosted an in-form Genoa, making it all about them and their organized crime-like demands. And Milan drew with Genoa, 3-3, when it was a match they could and sho ..read more

Milan-Genoa Preview: Keeping the Faith

When we played Genoa in October, aka the most insane stoppage time match ever, our first goalkeeper, Maignan, was sent off for a straight red card in the 98th minute, with no subs left, so Giroud donned the keeper jersey and gloves and quite literally saved the day. (If you'll recall, their goalkeeper was also sent off for a second yellow in the 103rd minute of a seven minute stoppage time that ended up being 15 minutes long.) This time, Gilardino's Genoa comes to the San Siro, and Maignan is out with a minor adductor muscle injury. And while the Curva Sud have questioned everyone's faith by a ..read more

Milan's Manager Dilemma

After nearly five years, the Pioli Out crowd seem to have finally realized their dream. Having constantly criticized the manager and blamed him for everything from the weather, the kits, to the mercato purchases, player performances, as well as the things he was actually responsible for, it seems that everyone has accepted that Pioli will be leaving at the end of the season. I mean, when pressed, management denies it and pretends to be annoyed by the questions. But they have leaked plenty of information to their spokespeople favorite journalists about having had serious talks with at least one ..read more

Juventus 0, Milan 0: Saved By Zero

The expectations for this match were low, given Milan's recent form and all the players and fans missing. So it's difficult to say whether or not a 0-0 draw vs. Juve met or exceeded those expectations. Certainly a clean sheet and a point against the team just below us on the table is better than losing or even drawing to a team much lower on the table. But with both managers under fire for underperforming squads, it was not exactly a match that was particularly entertaining. Sportiello had six saves, but Milan had zero shots on target at the other end. So in a strange way, Milan were saved by ..read more

Saturday evening, Milan travel to Turin to take on Juventus after what has arguably been the most difficult few weeks for Milan this season. After being knocked out of the Europa League by Roma last week, our Primavera losing the UEFA Youth League Final on Monday evening, then losing the Derby to Inter Monday night for them to secure what they believe is their 20th Scudetto, now we have to face Juventus. If you recall, last year, Juventus' points deduction was announced the same week we faced them in this fixture. You know, the points deduction and eventual UEFA ban that led to us getting a Ch ..read more

Milan 1, Inter 2: Sweep It Under the Carpet

As expected, Milan lost another Derby 2-1 to the organized crime family known as Inter. And while the Curva Sud Milano always impresses with their coreografia, this one may have actually been their most clever one yet. Copying a famous Banksy piece noted for its commentary on the problems we never talk about, the Curva entitled this one "Nothing Changes." The commentary the Curva were making was Inter's claiming 20 Scudetti, after infamously awarding themselves a "paper Scudetto" in 2006, the same year this Banksy work first appeared. They used cardboard stars to represent the two stars Inter ..read more
