Milan surprised at the beginning of the season, and again in the last two fixtures, with a win vs. Napoli and a draw with second place Roma. So we go into the holidays in seventh place, but only two points behind third place. These results have people dreaming of more than just sugarplums, but will Santa deliver the goods this Christmas for Milan fans? And if so, what exactly is it that he is supposed to deliver? What part of this season is fantasy and what part of it is reality? With pleas to Santa and coming off of a surprise result, Milanisti everywhere have plenty to talk about this Christmas break.
My guest this time was Dave, the Milanista, comedian, teacher, new father, and former Bodega clerk of the fabulous @DaveLambComedy Twitter account. In his spare time, he writes the amazing game previews on pdacquaviva.com. For this holiday podcast, we talked about:
• News of the Week: Goal line technology, territorial discrimination, budget deficit, Happy 115th Milan
• Season to Date: Update on the season
• Marketing vs. Football: also known as Barbara vs. Galliani
• Dear Santa: The most depressing fan wish list ever
• Coming Up: What’s up next
Thanks again to Dave for taking time out of his busy holiday schedule to chat. He is definitely underfollowed on Twitter, so help us change that by following him @DaveLambComedy. Also read his match previews on pdacquaviva.com for a fantastic read every time.
