Don’t take offence, red, it’s just that most people try to avoid topics they find utterly meaningless, whereas you often seem to discuss it both here and irl. Fair enough I guessAre you suggesting that invalidates my experience ? Or just that I am lying?
You may not know this, but every Italian team plays in the Coppa every season, so the chances of it coming up in a conversation about Italian football with an Italian football fan are quite high.
Counter-intuitive, I know, but life is funny that way
Not offended. You and most of the Milan forum are amicable, likeable, can take a joke.Don’t take offence, red, it’s just that most people try to avoid topics they find utterly meaningless, whereas you often seem discuss it both here and irl. Fair enough I guess
Re: the 'reserve' team thing....What if we 'sacrifice' EL and juve end up stealing the league as expected?
Look, our chances of winning EL are better than our chances of winning Serie A
Yes the 2005 Coppa was memorable indeed. I remember being extremely happy when we won it.. And the Meazza was a full house in the final return leg (Miha winning fk)We're already this far in the Coppa so we might as well go for it. I also think it would be very good to get at least some silverware since it might serve as a launchpad. I felt the same way about the Coppa in 04/05 where Mancini was creating the foundations of a winning team. After many draws (lol), I think we had the best defensive record in the league for the 2nd half of the season and the Coppa win validated the project (further supported by the Supercoppa win after that).
