Put a fork in the Scudetto race, it's done for Milan. A 2-1 loss to Sampdoria essentially put an end to this constant drama surrounding the club. With the way Milan have performed lately, I'd be more worried of conceding the third spot to Sampdoria.

Did we ever truly think we could oust Inter for the race with the team currently at Leonardo's disposal? Injuries have ravaged the club. A laundry-list of stars are out, proving that Milan are only an above average team that cannot seriously compete for any silverware if any of the key components are injured.

Milan-Cagliari. Final Score: 3-2. When two attack minded teams clash, it often produces a thrilling contest that never runs dry of goals. Milan encountered yet another must win situation against a tricky Cagliari side that plays a very energetic style of football.

Borriello scored in the opener minutes after a nice interchange with Slowdorf, which was subsequently countered by a Cagliari equalizer. Only two minutes after that, the Cobra Huntelaar smelled blood and unleashed a vuurpijl (Dutch word for rocket) from about 35 meters out that caught Federico Marchetti by surprise and plowed into the back of the net.

Matteo Bonetti Born and raised just a few kilometers away from The San Siro, Matteo Bonetti has been watching the Rossoneri ever since childhood. The passion was instilled by a family whose fanaticism for the team dates back to the early 1900's. Instead of bursting with an obscenity laden tirade, or turning any object around him into a projectile weapon after a disappointing Milan outing, Matteo can now channel his emotions into a more effective, and most importantly: safe, manner - writing on a global platform. He is a young journalist whose grandfather was the Vice President of Milan nearly four decades ago. E-mail him:, and follow him on twitter: @TheMilanGuy
