Completely disregard my last article as it is now ancient history. The past few months I've been engulfed in a dark, ominous hole known as the Milan transfer campaign. A campaign so depressing our 'premier' acquisition was Sokratis Papastatopujdnjgnakjn & the mercurial Prince Boateng.

Galliani & co. just redeemed themselves by acquiring one of the world's premier strikers in Zlatan Ibrahimovic. How did this happen, Mr. Galliani? Only a month ago in an 'exclusive' video interview you said Milan would only buy a 'big' if they sold a 'big'. Selling Huntelaar to buy Ibrahimovic is like selling a pickle to purchase a filet mignon. The funds don't add up, but whose counting anyways? Milan now have one of the world's most feared attacking tridents.

Milan's training ground of Milanello has been temporarily renamed due to obvious reasons. My negativity sprouts anew after a lackluster summer where the prime excitement revolved around the signing of a mediocre Greek defender whose name I will not even dare to pronounce. His last name contains a whopping 94 syllables, we'll just stick to Sokratis.

It seems that most other teams in the Serie A strengthened, while we remained virtually untouched. If anyone here is an NBA fan, they'll know about three of the premier players of the league getting together in Miami to form a dynasty (Lebron James, Wade, Bosh). But little does the casual fan know that a similar situation took place right under our very noses..

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
