  1. UCL Qualy, Second Leg: Milan - PSV. San Siro, Wed. 8/28, 20:45 CET.

    Milan
    I an hoping to get tickets for this match. If anyone else is attending, let me know and we can possibly meet up.
  2. 1/8 finals Barcelona - Milan 2nd leg / 12/03 20:45

    Milan
    Shattered about the performance and the result, we simply got demolished by a champion team. Disappointing given the cushy lead we had and how close we were to clinching the tie (one goal is all we needed IMO), but before the first leg was played I honestly had no hope that we would qualify...
  3. Zlatan or Shevchenko?

    Milan
    Zlatan played in 6 knockout legs over two seasons and scored just one penalty against Arsenal. In fact, the team failed to score in 4 of those 6 matches, a clear sign that the Zlatan-led attack struggled when it mattered most. Perhaps if he stayed then he may have had the opportunity to prove...
  4. Zlatan or Shevchenko?

    Milan
    Compare the strength of the leagues at the time Johan. Serie A in 2010-12 was not as strong as it was from 1999-2002. Also take into account importance in Champions League. Sheva wins that hands down.
  5. Milan's financial situation

    Milan
    Of more pressing concern should be how much money will we lose when we play in Serie B next season. :moan:
  6. The great transfer plan

    Milan
    A bit harsh on Rui Costa. He never set the world on fire, but he was instrumental in winning the 02/03 Champions League. For that alone, he should not be in this list.
  7. Milan unlikely to reinvest Ibra/Silva money

    Milan
    So I would think that to get a more accurate look at how much cash we are losing each year, you would need to look at the cash flow statement rather than just he income statement which the OP has provided. As a result of player amortisation, our profit/losses are made to look better or worse...
  8. Milan unlikely to reinvest Ibra/Silva money

    Milan
    So that would explain why amortisation is listed as a non cash flow expense. The cash is spent straight up when there is 0 amortisation, but when the transfer fee is amortised in the future reports, the cash wasn't actually spent in those future years, hence why it is considered non cash flow...
  9. Milan unlikely to reinvest Ibra/Silva money

    Milan
    I understand that from the balance sheet perspective (players as assets whose value decreases annually) but I'm just a bit confused about how our transfer fees are represented on the income statement. Say we buy Tevez for 20m over four years. Will our 2012 income statement show an expense of...
  10. Milan unlikely to reinvest Ibra/Silva money

    Milan
    Can someone with good accounting/financial knowledge in relation to football please explain the 'Profit in Player Sales' and also the 'Player Amortization' lines in the income statement posted in the OP. I have read up online but have come across some conflicting meanings. i.e. Profit on Player...
  11. Milan unlikely to reinvest Ibra/Silva money

    Milan
    If you're looking purely at income vs expenditure, we've been tracking at roughly -€40m per season. That's not taking into account player transfers, amortisation, depreciation, interest, tax, etc... Clearly our players wage bill was spiralling out of control, but you would think that we would...
  12. Prepare for next season

    Milan
    The problem is losing arguably the best centre back pairing in Europe in one hit. No defence = no success
  13. Milan Calciomercato Thread 2012

    Milan
    Okay, so with Silva and Ibrahimovic 99.99% gone and Milan with a bit of cash to spend (not much though, considering the reason we are selling is to balance the books), what would be your ideal signings? Keep it realistic in terms with players that we've been rumoured with and also on the actual...
  14. Milan Calciomercato Thread 2012

    Milan
    This 150m figure is bullshit. I understand it's transfer fees plus wages saved, but I'm sure we'll buy a player or two and then you have to include their wages over the duration of the contract as well. i.e. We buy Player X for 15m, he signs a five year deal for 7m per season. That's 50m in...
  15. Official transfers

    Milan
    Roma Zambrotta - Nesta - Silva - Darmian Gattuso - Van Bommel - Merkel Seedorf Inzaghi - Ibrahimovic Team of departures (pending PSG rumours). Would probably beat our current line up.
  16. Psychology and Spain

    Italian National Team
    I can see Stephan's point about the mental side of things, but I don't think it is necessarily going to happen. We lost to France in 1998 and 2000, and it felt like we would never beat them, but in 2006 we got our revenge. Then again in 2008.
  17. Oh well....

    Italian National Team
    This tournament proved to me that you can never write off Italy. We might not have the superstar names that we've had the last couple of decades, but Italian players in general will always be at a really high level and our tactical side of the game is always more advanced than most other...
  18. Thank You and Goodbye!

    Milan
    A very sad moment to lose four legends of the club after such a long, proud and successful period. It truly is the end of an era, with these four players each having contributed to our two Scudetti, two Champions Leagues and several other trophies in the last decade. Each have their own...
  19. Outside of San Siro a.k.a. the Others with wrong colors

    Milan
    :thumbsup: :howler: Interest and inflation.
  20. Outside of San Siro a.k.a. the Others with wrong colors

    Milan
    :thumbsup: Just proves how great that Milan side was. Interestingly, the second most recent side to win consecutive European Cups is... Nottingham Forrest. :eek:
