True, with no real direction nor ambition. no strategic planning for team building or moving the ship forward. he did that multiple times and it did not bear fruits.

we were shitty with no direction and spending crazy during dark times (dark times is post Capello era until we hired ancelotti in case you are wondering or you were just too young.)

I was nearly 20 when Ancelotti was signed as coach.

Excellent article that every football fan needs to read. City are changing football completely with China. I can't help read the article without thinking this could've been us...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/foo...ce-action.html


Do you guys think MR's China campaign jinxed Milan? His jinxing record is impeccable. Even J.Mauri who he started to worship (started after we signed him, just to be safe I guess since most players he said were coming never did) did not see one minute all season in Serie A before last night and he's leaving on loan next month LoL...

What if...this group that bought city was Richard Lee's consortium?

That would be one hell of a twist

edit: CorSera just reported this... it's roughly translated here.

MEETING IN BEIJING - in the day on Monday, Mr. Bee, accompanied by Federico Bazzoni of Citic Securities, which is an entity other than Citic Capital entry in Manchester City, had a meeting in Beijing with some investors: the outcome of this summit has been very positive, as there would be two important Chinese institutions (a financial, the other in the consumer goods sector) that would invest in Milan.



UNCERTAIN TIMES - This is certainly a very good news for the Milan, even if the times for the closure of this affair seem to still very uncertain: Berlusconi would in fact close the passage of the 48% of the club rossonero Mr. Bee at the end of 2015, but the affair is continuing to rhythms rather slow. What counts, however, is that a few seems to move and who knows that the supporters milan players cannot really receive a nice Christmas gift.

We do not even know who his real partners are/were. It's never been announced or revealed.
Interesting from CorSera

Mr Bee finds Chinese partners?

By Football Italia staff

Quote:
Bee Taechaubol has reportedly found two Chinese investors to help his efforts to buy 48 per cent of Milan.

The Thai has been in talks with the Rossoneri for a €480m acquisition since the summer, but the lengthy delay led to recent reports that it may be a scam.

However, Corriere della Sera writes today that on Monday there was a meeting in Peking between Mr Bee, Federico Bazzoni of Citic Securities and other investors.

The newspaper believes that there are two important Chinese institutions, one a holding company and the other in the consumer goods sector, interested in investing in Milan.


The paper also points out that Citic Securities is a different business to Citic Capital, the company that has just entered talks for a €400m investment in Manchester City.

If it means anything to you, Berlusconi's close friend and politician Salvini who is a fellow Milanista when asked about the outcome of the Bee talks has said that he was told the sale was concluded

Il Giornale echoes CDSera's report.

Again, it seems no one knows. Some believe Dec 16th is the date. Others believe it won't happen.

Tanti parole, pochi fatte.

BEE: [Knock knock]
Investor: who's there?
BEE: it's me, BEE
Investor: [cracks door open] what's up Bee?
BEE: Need money to buy 48% of Ac Milan
Investor: ok, sounds good but 48% only? so who's gonna run the business?
BEE: Galliani
Investor:




i would not trust Galliani to run a lemonade stand. or this scenario will happen too often.

You: adriano, you didin't buy any sugar
Galliani: let's just add more lemon, it'll all fix itself...let me order more lemon
You: No! you also don't have any cup to serve the lemonade
Galliani: people don't really use cups these day, you know

I will summarize what I have read today about the Bee-Milan stuff.

Various sources (Il Sole 24 ore, Gazzetta, Sportsmedia, milannews) are reporting that the Bee deal is close to completion, and that the Man City acquisition is unrelated to Bee, and signals, more generally, that the Chinese govt has authorized its institutions to enter football--in Italy, through Milan. While the reports have been both negative and positive in recent days, the prevailing feeling (from people in Finnivest, for example) is that the deal will conclude successfully.

The way that this is dragging is a bad omen, not only for the fact that it most likely won't go through but also for the fact that it shows at what state we're currently ... where we allow being pulled by the nose for all these months.

This guy splashes a bit of money here and there, makes a photo with Cannavaro and suddenly everybody thinks that he's gonna find 480 million.

At this point, I think there's only 5-10% possibility that this sale will be wrapped up. The question is: What happens if it doesn't? What is plan B? Will Berlusconi go back to the austerity years and hire Brocchi as coach just so that he can blame and sack him a year later?
