Derby della Madonnina (or the Milan Derby as it is known in the English-speaking world), is a football match between the two prominent Milanese clubs A.C. Milan and F.C. Internazionale of Italy. Along with the Rome, Genoa and Turin derbies, it is widely considered one of the major crosstown derbies in not just the Italian league, but the world. Taking place at least twice during the year via the league fixtures, this cross-town rivalry has extended to the Coppa Italia, European Cup (later renamed UEFA Champions League), Supercoppa Italiana, as well as in minor tournaments and friendlies. It is called "Derby della Madonnina" in honour of one of the main sights in the city of Milan, the statue of the Virgin Mary on the top of the Duomo, which is often referred to as the "Madonnina". The first derby match between the two Milanese rivals was held in the final of the Chiasso Cup of 1908, a football tournament played in Canton Ticino (Switzerland), on 18 October of that year. The Rossoneri won 2-1.

On 16 December 1899, Alfred Edwards and others founded the Milan Cricket and Football Club. Edwards, a former British vice-consul in Milan and a well-known personality of the Milanese high society, was the club's first elected president. Initially, the team included a cricket section, managed by Edward Berra, and a football section managed by David Allison. The Milan team soon gained relevant notability under Herbert Kilpin's guide. The first trophy to be won was the Medaglia del Re (King's Medal) on January 1900, and the team later won three national leagues, in 1901, 1906 and 1907. The triumph of 1901 was particularly relevant because it ended the consecutive series of wins of Genoa, which had been the only team to have won the title prior to 1901.

In 1908, issues over the signing of foreign players led to a split and the foundation of F.C. Internazionale Milano. In the past, Inter was seen as the club of the Milan bourgeoisie (nicknamed bauscia, a milanese term meaning "braggart"), whereas Milan (nicknamed casciavit, meaning in the milanese dialect "screwdriver", with reference to the blue-collar worker) was supported mainly by working class. However in the recent years this difference has mitigated, since Milan is now owned by former conservative Prime Minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi and Inter is owned by a centre-left businessman, Massimo Moratti.

During the mid-1960s, Inter was the more successful club, winning the European Cup twice in a row and the Intercontinental Cup twice in a row. However during the late 1980s and the 1990s Silvio Berlusconi's Milan was the more dominant team, with many victories both in Italy and in the European competitions.

So i hope you like this little instruction for the upcoming story. I think the next part are ready for monday evening.
Might want to make updates a little closer together mate, Monday night is a long stretch from when the first part was posted, also I myself don't really follow what you'll actually be doing? But I hope that becomes clear in the next update, good luck.

Thanks for your comment mate! Yeah i know it is a long time but i have a little daughter so i also have to spend time with her ;) ! This will be an online game and me and my brother fight against. I choose Inter and he took milan. The save will start on wednesday but i hope i can post the squad and my formation until the next days. Also i will show you a part of head coach Walter Mazzarri. I hope you enjoy it
Interesting idea :P

My name is Walter Mazzarri, i am 52 years old and born in italy. The last years i am the head coach of napoli and we do very well the last time. Now i want to have a new challenge and sign a two year contract at Giuseppe Meazza for the local club inter milan. I will play here the same formation like all the years in napoli and i am sure that we can play a good season to play in champions league next year.

For my 3-4-2-1 formation i need player types like this: GK, PBD, CD, PBD, CM, DLP, WB, WB, AM, IF, DLF

My first choice is Samir Handanovic because he is younger, better and more talented then Carrizo. The argentinien goalkeeper will be a good back up who bring all that he have in the games he play from the beginning. I think this could be in coppa italia or if Samir is on the flight for nationalteam.

In our defence will play Hugo Campagnaro, Juan Jesus and Walter Samuel. Also Chivu will get his chances and i hope he do well. Ranocchia plays the last two years very bad an his time as a talented player is over. He could leave the club for good money. Andreolli will give the back up also our co-owned player Longo. I think we need another player for this positions but not yet, we look to finde the right player and maybe buy one at the second transfer period in winter.

In midfield we play with 5 players. On the sides are two wing back's they will help out in defence and give the fourth and fifth defender if our opponents will be attack. If we are in ball positioning situation they play like a winger and help in offence to make our game unpredictable. For this positions we need new players. Maybe on the right side can play Schelotto on left wing maybe Chivu(are listed at defenders). But there we have no back up and we are searching for a player right there, now! In center we need two players who could defend and attack. This two players could be Kovacic and Mudingayi or Kuzmanovic. Maybe also Cambiasso, i dont know it yet. The we need an attacking midfielder and this part be the best for Fredy Guarin, he could become my new Hamsik. Also we need one deep lying forward, here we have with Ricky Alvarez a very exciting and interessting player. He can play the part of Guarin and also the part of a striker. We will see, i hope he find a place in my formation. Our captain javier Zanetti will get a place in my formation, in center of midfield but he is injured fior the next 4-5 months. If he come back nothing and nobody can bring him out of my formation. He is a real legend of this club and i will honour this.

Also the deep lying forward can been playing by Rodrigo Palacio, Mauro Icardi, Samuele Longo and Ishak Belfodil. Longo are one of the talented players coming out of inter youth, Icardi and Belfodil are co-owners from Samp and Parma. We will look but i think booth are objects for the future of this club and we are doing well to buy all the rights of this players. Our striker is Diego Milito. He is one of the best strikers of the planet and score, score, score. I hope he do this also in my career and i will have a lot of fun with him. He is 33 years old but i am sure that he can play another 3 or 4 years on top level.

Welcome to the first press conference with the new inter head coach Walter Mazzarri. Now you can ask the new Mister about things that you have to know. Good luck!


Daje Mister. Why do you choose inter and go away of napoli where you have a lot of good results and could play in champions league next year? Why you dont try to win the championship with them?

Buon girono. I work in napoli for a long time, i form a team who could win titles and play a very good style of football. I think my work there was done. Now it was time to go and take inter back to glory. I think this year napoli can win the scudetto and i am sure that it was the same if i was there or not. The team are very hungry and will go for glory. Inter is a big club and play a little bit unlucky the last years. Many good players are injured last season and other players going away. Now i and Marco Branca have to built a new team who could win titles and play in champions league every year. This is it what inter needs.


Ciao Mister. You tell us that you will play the same formation like in napoli. But are you have the right players also here? Could inter play with counter attacks, and who will become the new Cavani? Belfodil? Icardi? Longo? Palacio?

Salve. I dont think that we must have the same kind of players like in napoli. It is true that i am happy that Campagnaro is also sign a contract for inter because he is an amazing defender with good quality. I think this will be the same formation but with an other style. We have very interresting players like Guarin, Ricky, Zanetti and my favourite Diego Milito. He is an amazing striker who could take the next and maybe last level this year. Nobody can handle him because he is a winner and winners always take a happy ending.


Benvenuti all'inter Walter. Do you think inter can beat the big three of the last year? Do aou think inter is on a level with the rossoneri, lazio and Roma? Or you think they can mess this year with juve or napoli?

Grazie. At this time i am not sure where our way drifts us this year. I promise you that inter gets a renaissance the next two years and come back more powerfull then ever. We will show our fans attractiv offence football with many victorys on our side. As soon as we can be a team, as soon as possible we are over the top!
