"He is 1.83, has blue eyes, and thick hair"

This was a quote from Massimiliano Allegri back in June when asked about what the mysterious X player looked like. Now there are three options:

1. Alberto Aquilani really does have blue eyes and has worn dark brown contacts his entire life because he's embarrassed to look like Philippe Mexes.
2. Massimiliano Allegri loves teasing us.
3. I'm colour-blind, in which case please let me know so I go see an optometrist.

The new season commenced with a mouthwatering derby held in Beijing's famous Birds Nest. A stadium filled to the brim, with 80,000 frenzied Chinese fans eager to support their favorite Milan side.

The week leading up to the match showcased the immense passion that the Asian country felt for both Milan sides. In fact, a video was released of a Chinese fan donning a Rossonero shirt who was beat to a pulp by a hoard of Interisti who violently ripped off his brand new kit.

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
