It has been a depressing week for Milanisti across the globe. A heartbreaking loss at White Hart Lane to the Spurs, which knocked us out of the Champions League prematurely, and a gut wrenching tie against the Serie B all stars of Bari.

Watching the Milan vs. Bari match was comparable to watching a marathon starring Luca Toni, Erjon Bogdani, and Bernardo Corradi. It was painfully frustrating, with a seemingly never ending array of chances squandered for Milan. Someone needs to keep a new statistic for me: the amount of times Robinho shanks an easy shot on goal. I think his number for the season stands between 800-900. (Rough estimate)

Perhaps one of the greatest emotions about following a sport so closely is that you get to witness players grow up right in front of your eyes. What was once just a scrawny little pimply faced Brazilian with a bad haircut, developed into an athletic phenom, minus the pimples, but still with the atrocious haircut.

Alexander Pato turned into a man against Napoli.

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
