He may not be considered one of the best and perhaps rightly so. However, Christian Abbiati showed on Wednesday night just why buying a new goalkeeper has not been a priority for the Rossoneri in recent years. Seldom is he spectacular, rarely does he decide games. But, against Zenit it was his heroics between the [.
For Milan, this is the stage that has always counted for more; the Champions League. Though, few are expecting fireworks from this ‘new-look' Rossoneri in this season's edition as they are not quite the force they have been in years gone by. Even a repeat of last season where they were eliminated in the quarter-finals [.
"The performance was out best yet," declared Max Allegri after the final whistle on Saturday night. They may have not got all three points, but, he was dead right. There was fluidity, control and calmness in their play, not the nervousness and apprehension that has been evident in previous games. The result, on this occasion, [.
It was perhaps the best news of the week. For Milan fans, these days, speculation about a new owner coming in is most welcomed given the club's declining fortunes under Silvio Berlusconi.

Is the nightmare over? Has the team turned the corner? These are the questions that by the end of Milan's match tomorrow night in Parma we will know the answers to; hopefully. The Rossoneri may have finally got back to winning ways during the week, courtesy of Stephan El Shaarawy brace. However, it was not [.
"We have to create a great squad based on the youngsters. That's what Barça did. I remember the stellar Milan team started like that: with Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi and Billy Costacurta", were the words of Silvio Berlusconi at the end of that most trying month of July that saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva [.
At times it was not pretty, and it certainly was not the most convincing win, but, as Adriano Galliani sounded after the final whistle, "only the result mattered". How right he is; after the club's worst start to a season in 82 years, after failing to score a single goal at home let alone win, [...]
Milan's season has been an abject disaster to date. The Rossoneri have claimed just three points from their first four matches which has left them sitting in a lowly 15th place in the Serie A. Not only have results been poor, but, performances have not been much better. However, there was some marginal improvement in [.
"Allegri is not up for debate. We are going forward with this Coach, as he has the total faith of the President and me," Adriano Galliani proclaimed in the aftermath of Milan's dramatic defeat at the hands of Udinese. Though, perhaps not everyone will believe him. This is, after all, the man that at the [.
Amidst the crisis and the chaos, one subject has dominated Milan this week; Max Allegri. Will he, when will he or will he not be fired? Have been the questions on everyone's mind and speculation on the peninsula is that should Milan fail to beat Udinese tomorrow, he indeed will be sent packing. At least, [.

There was yet more Milan misery on Tuesday night. And, I bet this is not the last time I will be able to start off with this line this season. Not with how things are going at the moment. After a more than lacklustre start to their campaign, Milan's first match in the Champions League [...]
Max Allegri is a man under the kosh, so to speak. Poor results and deteriorating relationships with the club's board all indicate that he may be given the boot sooner rather than later. Speculation regarding his future has been rife and according to La Repubblica, Silvio Berlusconi's dream is to bring Pep Guardiola.
After just three matches played, Max Allegri is already feeling the heat. In truth, it was always going to be a tough season following a dramatic summer of change. However, by his own admission, Allegri accepts that things have fared worse than he would of thought. Lose on Tuesday night and he might just be [.
