The past month has been a roller coaster ride for Milan fans - to say the least. When we all thought Milan's transfer campaign would quietly close with the signing of Boateng, Berlusconi threw us a curveball by acquiring two world class players in Robinho & Ibrahimovic. Some call them the new Zlatman and Robin, I like to call them..... the Milacticos.

Think of it as the Galacticos light. Berlusconi changed the face of the team without spending a quarter billion € for anybody with a name, or cool hair (Ronaldo). Milan paid half price for players who were valued at astronomically high figures only a few years ago.

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
