The Devil in Milano


A.C Milan have been struggling as of late, with a downwards progression since the season of 2010/2011. That fabled season was the last that Milan finished first, and since then have finished second, third, eighth and tenth respectively.

Five years have brought along with them five managers, two of which being former players. They have all struggled to re-ignite the flame in the heart of Milan.

This season brings new tidings in the form of another fresh faced manager. Siniša Mihajlović knows the league well and he knows the teams within it even better. Can this devilish manager awaken the demon that is forever in the streets and houses of Milano?

Key Players

#5 Keisuke Honda

Nicknamed 'The Samurai'. Keisuke Honda is perhaps one player that can completely dictate the tempo of a game, much like Manchester United legend Paul Scholes. Honda will play in central midfield and will provide a much needed leader figure on the pitch for the players to look up to. At twenty-nine years old the Japan international still has a few years left in him and his experience will prove vital.

#4 Mario Balotelli

An outcast. Balotelli has been laundered for his off the field antics and his bad-boy image. After transferring to Liverpool, the forward struggled and returns to Milan on loan. He will have something to prove to the world here, and hopefully he can get the people back on his side.

#3 Carlos Bacca

A new signing, Carlos Bacca will want to stamp his mark on the league after moving from Spain this summer. He will also want to prove he is worth the twenty-plus million that Milan paid for his talents. A clinical finisher, Bacca will hopefully provide the goals and a figurehead for loanee striker Mario Balotelli who struggled on his return to English football.

#2 Philippe Mexés

Philippe will need to lead a defence that has youngsters knocking on the door. Without a figurehead like Allesandro Nesta in the heart of defence, Mexés will need to step up and provide advice on and off the pitch for up-and-coming youngsters such as Romagnoli and Ely.

#1 Gianluigi Donnarumma

Touted to be the next Gianlugi Buffon, his idol. Donnarumma is an exceptional talent and will provide a youthful goalkeeping option in a team that has had many "old" goalkeepers. Gianluigi will start this season as the team's number one at just sixteen years old and will be looking to prove any doubters wrong and follow in the footsteps of the great Buffon.
Good luck! A decent start already with some nice updates and writing :)

The Future of Croatian Football

A.C Milan can today confirm the signing of Andrija Balic from Croatian outfit HNK Hadjuk for 1,900,000 million euros.

At just seventeen years old, Balic was a member of the first team set up at Hadjuk and is a strong addition to any midfield. Often compared to Luka Modric, the teen has already gained the attention of Europe's powers after scoring some wonderful goals and his dogged approach to the game.

Dubbed the new Zvonimir Boban, Andrija has some very large boots to fill. Both Chelsea and Milan bid for the player but the pull of Italian football proved too much for the young lad, who immediately signed the contract offered by Milan.

His agent, Damir Matic, has a host of Croatian talent on his books and was immensely pleased with such big clubs coming in for one of his players. Being that the player is just seventeen, A.C Milan have agreed to let Balic return to HNK for a year long loan to aid in the players development while a scout will be attending any matches he is set to play in.


Gianluigi Donnarumma is 6'5 at 16! GEEEEZ!

I love a good AC Milan story, I hope you manage to get famous names throughout their squad once again and bring them back to the glory days!
It'll be interesting to see if you can take the club back to previous glory as well as building the leagues reputation back up!

A Pillar of Experience


Korean international Kim Shin-wook has today joined A.C Milan on a three year deal thought to be worth around €12,500 a week.

Kim spent his youth days training either as a central defender or a defensive midfielder but upon suggestion by his manager, he was converted into a striker a few weeks after signing his first professional contract with Ulsan. At first, he struggled to adjust in the new position but lately he has been proving his worth by being one of the top centre forwards in the Korean domestic football scene. His improvement as a striker the last few years is evidenced by his ever-increasing goal scoring record.

Often referred to as "Attack on Titan" by fans at his previous club, the Korean striker stands at 6 feet and 5 inches tall. The deal is thought to be worth around €1.1 million euros.

Manager Siniša Mihajlović has publicly announced that the striker will be back-up for Bacca and Balotelli, but will certainly receive games if the two do not perform.


a nice start mate and is there any chance you can get a screenshot of your new signing?
He looks a decent target man but will he score at this level though is my worry.
He sold him walkinshaw haha!

Its a shame, tall strikers do very well in Asian leagues due to the average height of the defenders being much smaller (just ask Josh Kennedy).

I feel like we might see a name player replace him though :)
Waiting for an update!!
