Atalanta could ruin AC Milan's Champions League hopes
15:00 Saturday 16th February 2019

Serie A's Champions League race is just as compelling, if not more than the Premier League. AC Milan enters the weekend fourth but only a point ahead of a chasing pack consisting of Roma, Lazio and Saturday's hosts, Atalanta. The…

Tiemoue Bakayoko enjoying AC Milan as Chelsea's midfield struggles
09:00 Wednesday 13th February 2019

Would signing Jack Wilshere be a good move for AC Milan?
08:00 Monday 9th July 2018

Could it be that the former Arsenal midfielder is the ‘’important midfielder” that Gennaro Gattuso wanted to sign? In a June press conference, the bullet-headed AC Milan midfield-legend-cum-manager responded to questions about…

One reason to take Cristiano Ronaldo transfer rumours seriously
09:00 Friday 6th July 2018

AC Milan vs Arsenal: A tale of two fallen giants
09:30 Thursday 8th March 2018

There was a time an AC Milan/Arsenal clash would have been billed as a potential Champions League final. That much pedigree, quality, and strength in depth existed in both squads. Nowadays, the two have been reduced to Thursday night mercenaries. How…

At 18, Gianluigi Donnarumma's focus should be football
10:00 Saturday 16th December 2017

The football world was shocked when scenes emerged of AC Milan goalkeeper Gianlugi Donnarumma crying profusely after a 3-0 win over Chievo Verona. The teenage shotstopper has earned his fair share of criticism. It came to a head, however, after…

The new United way?
12:42 Friday 21st October 2016

35% possession. 20 fouls. 1 shot on target. 1 corner. 1 Marouane Fellaini. 0 goals. Those numbers - with the exception of the latter - will be banded about a lot in the build up to Jose Mourinho's return to Stamford Bridge. For the first time…
