    The Rumour Commode XXXIX: A Cardinal Sin

    The Botman signing should have happened in the winter mercato (that is on Elliott). This summer, Botman became overpriced for what he was going to bring. Plus with limited funds, the attack was seen as a higher priority than getting another CB (which is a fair assessment).

    The Rumour Commode XXXIX: A Cardinal Sin

    The blame mostly goes to Elliott (and perhaps RedBird) who should have made more funds available this summer. With the sale going on it is kind of understandable, but it was very disappointing nevertheless. As for this summer's transfers, I think the jury is still out (well, possibly except...

    Of course MMM are not perfect and have made some mistakes. Enzo appears to be one of them (though we do not know what actually happened, why he chose Benfica). However, their overall track record has been quite good, which is probably why there is an obsessive amount of posts on the relative...

    Did you read his book? (For the record, I got it as a gift, would not have paid money for it.). Clearly he was not happy with us, did not like Galliani, etc. He also said he would never be a coach, but ... whatever.

    Would not count them out yet. Or Rube. They can always count on refs. That said, I don't think either will win scudetto. It's us or Napoli.

    This. Hindsight is 20-20. Should we have started the season with no backup for Theo other that an unproven primavera kid?

    Yup, it's all true. Goalposts are changing already. Until a few days ago it was "for sure we will lose Leao and Benna on a free" and "RedShit is too cheap to make serious offers". Now it's going to be "oh no, the contract sucks, clearly Maldini is an amateur".

    Depressing. Mike in particular, the uncertainty is cause for concern. I kind of see why we are after GKs, we need someone better than Tata.

    IDK. He may make a good sub, but we need someone better as a starter. At some point we need to start improving quality.

    :-) Depends on the player, though. We are better off without Dolla, we did not really replace "figlio di puttana" (though I do not regret his leaving), I think the team is missing Kessie (even though his last year was disappointing), and Roma leaving is a non-issue. Leao leaving would be a...

    Since I feel (in part) this is directed towards me: - FWIW, I did not start the debate on the Chinese owners. Someone actually claimed they were better than Elliott / RedBird, and someone else then tried to prove they did not bring us to the brink of bankruptcy (apparently, the team losing a...

    The Rumour Commode XXXIX: A Cardinal Sin

    This discussion started with a statement to the effect that the Chinese ownership was better than Elliott / RedBird (I forget who made this). I disputed the statement, you defended it. In particular, you keep arguing that we were left in good financial shape by the clowns. If you truly...

    Yeah. The Chinese defaulted on their loan. That is perfectly fine, nothing to do with bankruptcy. Rather, it indicates that the financial situation for both Yohong and Milan was real grand. Jokes aside, when Elliott took over they could have easily sold the assets and dissolved the club. In...

    1988 to 2007 was truly glorious and as Milan fans we should be immensely grateful. I am. However, there was nothing glorious about 2007 to 2015. We started a horrible decline, won one scudetto (as much as Elliott did in half that time), went from CL winners to being a mid table team (in a...

    The Rumour Commode XXXIX: A Cardinal Sin

    Let's see. Leo spent a gazillion euro at PSG to win, what, a few titles in a farmer league and nothing at a European level. He was so successful there that eventually he got sacked. When he was at Milan, he paid a lot of money for useless fodder. And ... you think this is the model of...

    It hurt spending over a decade of misery (thanks in large part to your heros, B&G). Not sure why you fell that winning scudetto and competing in CL ... hurts?

    I guess that is the difference, I was a Milan fan long before Berlu :--) In any case, what people fail to grasp is that had Berlu built a solid financial structure for the team, we would have not ended up with over a decade of utter misery (would have not been that hard for him to do so...
