In another disturbing sign, the San Siro was half empty as the fans stayed away, disillusioned by the club's failure to sign quality replacements for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva.

Mirko Bolesan at related • 0 views

The close season is traditionally a time where clubs jettison their weak players, replacing them with footballers with the skill to take the club one step further, whether that be to qualify or European competition or avoid another year's relegation struggle. With that in mind I thought it would be interesting to see which clubs decided a wholesale change would be preferable to keeping faith with the players who toiled their way through the 2011/2012 season.
