So, Milan fans haven't been this excited in years for the summer transfer window that went from being morbidly depressing, to an Italian revolution I claimed to be the Milacticos era. Unfortunately, I let my emotions cloud my judgment. Deep down inside my subconscious, all the doubts I had about our defence were temporarily forgone, as Ibrahimovic and Robinho made headlines.

What if one of our stellar, but frail central defenders went down with an injury? What if every single fullback we have is mediocre, or worse? What if it comes down to Daniele Bonera or Sokratis Papapfsdgfioegne having to defend Cristiano Ronaldo in the Champions League? All these what ifs have materialized, and now we're suffering the price for having an unbalanced team.

For those of you who have been following me for a while, you know I hardly ever report on transfer rumors. Recently I read a quote on the Internet that I enjoyed:

Being a good writer is 3% talent, and 97% not being distracted by the Internet

I take this quote to heart. Most of the news we read online comes from shady sources that always list "our insider information reports" or "according to sources".. Which sources? What insider? Who, what, where, when, why? We're temporarily transfixed by a column which reads: "Manchester City to offer Milan €45 million for Ignazio Abate." (Wait, they might actually do that) While we all know there's a better chance Oddo will be Capocannoniere in the Serie A than that happening, there's always the lingering excitement of "what if"..

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.
