    We will be behind Portugal clubs starting from 2013 if we don't beat them by at least 1.5 points next season. At least I'm glad 'more competitive and improving serie A' talk is over.

    i can see Milan's goodbye to CL in next round unless they get one of Marseille, Benfica or Apoel.

    Firstly, italian clubs should focus on lowering Taxes, which kills the football in italia. Then new stadiums are a must. After all, our league can compete the likes of Spain and England. Otherwise, Portugal clubs will pass us too.

    Getting new stadiums is a must because it solves multiple problems at once. There is no reason why we should ever be mentioned in the same breath as the Portuguese league. (Not blaming you, just saying how far we have fallen)

    In terms of taxes, they can't lower taxes in Italy for football, unless u want the people in Italy to have a revolt. With what's going on in the world right now and especially in Europe, there is no way they would lower taxes in Italian football and then raise taxes for the average Joe's (regular people) in Italy. There would be a revolt.

    Anyhow a lot of the teams in football around the world are in debt. For example in la liga, besides real Madrid and Barcelona every other team is almost bankrupt. Due to the fact that most of those teams don't even have television rights and don't have the money compared to Madrid and Barcelona to buy big name players. Even in England in the epl, there are teams in financial problems. Milan won't lose, they can beat Barcelona and bayern Munich. There is no other team, besides Madrid that should give Milan a real problem.

    The thing I don't think people are putting into a factor is that Italian teams match up good against other teams so Barcelona can be defeated by an Italian team.

    i agree about milannot being able to beat madrid but i dont think milan cna beat barca as well tbh. Barca will just run though their wingback like they weren't even present cuz c'mon they have antonini n abate is well ok but still not quality. One 35 year old as CDM, although he is a fantastic player i dont think he is a match for barca's attacking trident.

    This is the same thing they said about inter when we faced them in champions league under mourihno. All my friends said to me its over for inter they will be wiped away like an ant getting blown in the wind, when they play Barcelona and you know what happened inter beat them and then went on to win the treble.

    Your right Milan might not have the wingbacks or youth to stop Barcelona's all out attack, but there is one factor that we don't input into the equation and that is heart, fight, and determination (which we at inter hasn't had this season). Don't doubt that Milan will go with guns blazing in a battle to the death against Barcelona, they have done it in the group stages against them. And in both games Barcelona barely pulled through, the first game was a draw and the second Barceclona won 3 to 2 but barely won. At least not the way they usually win where they dominate teams. We will see I hope they don't get Barcelona, Madrid or bayern Munich because they further they go the better it is for serie a. I hope they draw Chelsea or Marseilles and reek havoc on those teams.
