Curva Sud tell the fans: “Abandon San Siro and don’t buy merchandise, we want clarity from the Milan!”

The Curva Sud have released a statement today saying their patience is finally over and they are encouraging people to keep San Siro empty tomorrow for Milan-Cagliari.

Milan’s objective at the start of the season was to reach a Champions League place (the word Scudetto has probably never been heard at Casa Milan) but the harsh reality is that the Rossoneri are likely to even miss out of a Europa League spot as they’ve completely miserable this season.

The fans on the internet, and definitely here as you can read, have had enough and have asked the Curva Sud to take action against the club and its leaders and it seems that the time has now arrived for the Milan ultras to make their voices heard and show the management what they feel.

The official statement of the Curva Sud on their website reads today:

“‘I am a part of the club, just as the club is a part of me; and I say this fully aware that the club exploits me, disregards my views, and treats me shoddily on occasions, so my feeling of organic connection is not built on a muddle-headed and sentimental misunderstanding of how professional football works’
~ Nick Hornby, ‘Fever Pitch’.

“All you are about to read is something beyond our being and belonging to the Curva Sud Ultras. What you are about to read is the feeling of people, Rossoneri that now more than ever want to make their voices heard.

“These words are not directed only to those who sit in the secondo blu but to all of those who have Milan in heart. From those who stand on the barricades and starting the choirs, to those who sit in the back row and also those who love to watch the games from the stands. To those who follow Milan with passion in all games or even occasionally.

“We’ve been experiencing an absurd situation for too long. It’s useless to dwell more on transfer campaigns – a subject we’ve talked too much about lately – and we do not want to talk about technical choices. Here we talk about feelings and passion and this call comes from people who’ve always lived with Milan as a priority.

“How many times have we made sacrifices for Milan? How many times have we saved up to buy a new shirt, to be able to go to the stadium, to renew our season tickets?

“There’s one thing that’s been lacking, something that we want as Milan fans and lovers of these colours: clarity! We have a series of questions we’d like to ask President Berlusconi at this point:

“Why have you, for years, pulled the wool over our eyes, promising a speedy return to the glories of the past, but then, in fact, started many projects which you abandoned after a few months?

“We’d really like to understand, in order to avoid being cheated for the umpteenth time. How true are these rumours of selling all or some of the shares?

“If the intention is to sell part of the club and remain in this stalemate, then it’s better to just sell all of the club and let someone else take control of the situation.

“How much desire do you still have to bring us back to the top of the world? And if you don’t feel like doing that, why prolong this agony that’s slowly dragging us to the bottom?

“We’re still grateful for what you’ve done in these 29 years, but now we’re at rock bottom and we don’t feel like starting to dig.

“Are you sure that you still love this team like in the first day?

“We haven’t forgotten what you did for us, taking us over in a court and taking us to the top of the world in a few short years. Unfortunately though, we’ve been in a state of inertia for too long, making us feel abandoned and almost resigned to our fate.

“Unfortunately after being confident and having waited, the time has come to take the situation in hand, and from tomorrow we will begin a series of initiatives to achieve clarity and to make them understand that too many things don’t go well anymore.

“We invite EVERYONE to abandon the stadium for Milan-Cagliari, but we don’t just stop there, we ask you to avoid buying any official merchandise. Avoiding Casa Milan and any kind of initiative for this day.

“They must remain completely alone as they’ve made us feel many, many times over the years. We invite those who have already bought tickets and made travel arrangements to stay, if possible, outside the stadium. If this is impossible [we understand the inconvenience, as we were always the first to travel to see our great love], we ask to at least not show banners and flags and refrain from cheering.

“Today, more than ever, the Rossoneri must show unity of purpose and make sure the proponents of this situation fulfill their responsibilities. And above all, It’s time to put aside all the talks in bars and on the internet and demonstrate against what really keeps us in this situation.

“This is the last appeal from the Curva, Milan club and all Rossoneri to the President, the person who can bring clarity and resolve this situation, or we’ll be aware that there is no other way than strong opposition.

“The initiatives will not stop after this occasion and we will notify you from time to time through our website www.curvasudmilano.it.

“No surrender. The Rossoneri’s hear is still beating. Our fight has begun now!! #SaveACMilan

You guys r seriously funny. U guys have called for numerous coaches heads when the team doesn’t perform and now it’s inzaghis. Last time everyone said allegri is a bad coach bla bla, look what he’s doing with juve, even something Conte couldn’t do, and that’s bring them far in the Champions League. Next was short and brief Seedorf and now everyone here says inzaghi. Curva sud aren’t stupid, in this letter why have they attacked Berlusconi and galliani but not inzaghi? Truth is no matter what line up u put out there this is not a team. There’s no… Read more »

Unbelievable…. Inzaghi is the worse coach in MILANS history.. That is a fact.. Take that and swallow it…! No one says he’s the main problem, but with the players he’s got at hand.. He’s done a bad bad job.. Terrible one at that…!

I am with you Milanellofm! Yes, Inzaghi has made mistakes but all rookie managers makes them. Last games havent been very positive but we started playing more attacking football, and those who does not see that are just talking out of anger and dissapoitment, and I understand that.

Is it possible to loan out Inzaghi? I mean yes, we need someone experienced to get back on top, but Inzagi might become top class coach, he just needs to collect more experience in smaller teams.

Don’t forget the same inzaghi was the one that said he was satisfied with the players he got during the January transfer window . We all know B & G are the cause of most of the problems but Inzaghi is very terrible at managing .

Like i said before “goodmorning curvasud” but better late than never. Milan was formed in 1899,berlusconi took over it in 1986 and after 29yrs if he is no longer ready to carry on, he should pass the barton rather than holding us hostage. Boycott all matches this season imo and that would send a very strong message to that crazy bald and berlu.
Forza curvasud!!!

@milanellofm. Allegri is using a winning squad left for him by conte. If juve happens to sell some of their top players just like milan did then you will see the mediocricy in allegri ****coughs****matri***coughs..

As for inzaghi, he is not ripe to coach any team. His appointment shows how clueless our management(galliani) is at the moment. A lot of matches have proven that inzaghi as a coach is catastrophic.

Keeep sentiments away from facts!

As much as I hated Allegri when he was our coach, he deserves credits for the success that he has with Juve right now. Tell me how many coaches built the team from ground up with instant success? Sure he inherited a strong quad from Conte but that does not mean we should take away his contribution to the current Juve team. He was actually good in certain situations, like when we were underdogs against Barcelona and played a defensively perfect game at San Siro.

I Love this i hop this is the begining of acheivement frm the curva sud.the first assignment is non to go to the stadium,non should buy anytyn from the casa milan,thw second objection should be either a new management or the old one should give we the fans want and what we need.the 3rd should go for the players they should release all the mediocre players for free and give all our youth chance to prove all what they are capable of doing.

Good news, but not getting my hopes up unless i see an empty stadium tomorrow, impacting revenue is the only way to get Silvios attention. … @millanellofm, I understand wanting to defend Pippo, no one is saying its “all” his fault, but our results on the pitch, especially since his January signings, are below what this squad is capable of. As a leader the responsibility ultimately lies with him. The squad follows Pippo not B&G. Pippo brought into Milan: Cerci, Bocchetti, Destro, Antonelli, Suso, Menez, Albertazzi, Alex, Lopez, Paletta, Armero, & MVG on loan… He rejected Mario, rejected Taarabt, allowed… Read more »

The thing about milan it’s hard to at inzaghi n say he to blame for all milan short comings, let start with berlusconi for appointing 2 CEO, galliani is at fault for buying rejects at staggering price and hiring a clueless, spineless inzaghi as milan coach,inzaghi should never be a coach he’s just that bad,PS galliani would rather let a billion euro organisation go down rather than let 1 million go to inzaghi for firing him, galliani ain’t good in math.

I have also wanted to make that point about Allegri, but knew people would say that he has a great team at hand already from Conte. As you can see its not that easy to only have a great team at your disposal. As evidenced by Madrid when they appointed Schuster, Ramos, Pellegrini before Mourinho came and now the best of them all our very own believed Carletto. And our squad now is top three material to be honest, but here we are linguering in mid table. So dont come around and say that Allegri is a bad coach. Or… Read more »

Allegri is a good coach imo. He’s not one the best but he’s good. Problem is he’s one of those coaches who bases his ideas on possession and controlling the game and for that you need a quality team and midfield. Milan didn’t have that at least not on the later years of his managerial rein. I also think give Guardiola a mediocre team and maybe he’ll perform worse than Mihajlovic. Now we have those who are reflexable. Ancelotti may not be as good as Guardiola in possession football but he’s the best overall. He’s tactically excellent. Football is far… Read more »

Don’t expect anything big from this, Galliani will just buy them of with something like he always did, that’s one of the reasons Maldini and Galliani don’t get along. Galliani is a bribing slime that’s how it is and Curva Sud are no longer the Curva they once were, they sell their pride cheaply these days. But if this action brings out something good then i salute their action. Forza Milan!

@ Milanellofm,stop protecting Inzaghi,he is the one that requested all these players that Galliani brought in the summer and winter mercato.He always says he’s spoilt of choices.He has a far more better team on paper to compare to that of Seedorf.The problem with Inzaghi is the mentality and the team work.It was this same midfield that out-played Atletico Madrid both at the Sansiro and at the Vincento Calderon,a whole Diego Simeone’s aggressive team sat back to defend against a team they were better both on paper and on the pitch,a midfield of NDJ-Essien,Taarabt-Kaka-Poli against Koke-Gabi-Tiago-Arda Turan and Atletico sat back… Read more »

As a manager what would you like inzaghi to say, that he’s disappointed with who he has? You always have to keep ur players motivated. Galliani and Berlusconi make the decision of who we get and who leaves and that’s been evident for years. Inzaghi isn’t… Read more »

I agree with you. And guys remember the last time a coach said half the team don’t deserve milan shirt and what happened to him? Cough *Seedorf* cough. I said it before B&G only appointed pippo to take the blame when things go wrong, which is what’s expected. Curva sud have finally figured that out and are unhappy.

I will keep singing this song… Inzaghi has no business coaching and if it all he really wants to coach, he should start from the bottom, not with my precious Ac Milan. Yes B&G appointed him, but wasn’t it obvious to him that the SHOES were just too big to fill? It’s solely his responsibility that he took a job which he ain’t qualified for. Considering the ultimate fact that himself and Seedorf were in the same team that gave us those last shiny glorious years, I feel he could have declined that job and just stayed with the Primavera… Read more »

@ Milanellofm,Yes B and G have a huge blame for these calamities.But Inzaghi himself said many times that he’s the one that asked for these players,and remember he went to Ibiza with Galliani to convince Menez to join us,remember he called Destro on phone before Galliani went to Destro’s house in Rome and I think he did the same with MVG and Suso since Honda was out for the Asian cup.Remember also that B&G loves Pippo so much that he also join them in a meeting to discuss the mercato,they love him so much that after 8 wins,11 draws and… Read more »

K but you still don’t get it. G and B don’t give any other options. I’m sure inzaghi would rather have a Falcao or a griezmann (who milan were supposedly linked to last summer) but they don’t want to spend money. So Ofcourse inzaghi is going to take who he can get cause it’s either them or a luca toni-like player. If inzaghi had the funds and the money to really pick the players he wanted I’msure it wwouldn’t be those. Now I don’t think inzaghi is a great coach and I personally didn’t want him in the beginning anyways.… Read more »
