Back after 7 long years.

I don't know if it will be a happy time for us given the group we've been saddled with, but unfortunately those are the consequences of being in the wilderness for so long and not taking the EL that seriously.

Don't know about you guys but I'm super excited about this. I grew up with Ancelotti's Milan where the Champions League was our soil, so being back after 7 long years is fantastic. Let's just hope we can put up some dignified performance.

Yeah. I remember those seasons when we even treated the league like a 2nd rate competition as you would with the UEFA Cup when CL matches came around. We'd lose to Ascoli on the weekend and blow out Man U on a Wednesday. Those were the days....

And to think that we could have easily won another 2 titles if it weren't for arrogance on our part against both Liverpool and Deportivo

Deportivo... i'm really not sure what happened back then. It was such a shocker, mostly because we played so freaking good that season.

Liverpool... to be quite honest, we had much luck prior to that against PSV and I think PSV might have even deserved to go through to the final. But anyway, and now I'm stepping into heavy counterfactual history, but do you guys think Milan would have won the 2008 Athens final without the defeat in Istanbul? Because these two games are so interlinked and our team was so old in 2008. I'm somehow convinced that players like Pippo, Pirlo, Ambro, etc got the extra push particularly because of the defeat in Istanbul. Without that, I really don't see us winning in Athens or playing the final for that matter.

Whereas we fully deserved to win the Istanbul final and simply got unlucky, Athens was a much more balanced game. Very tactical, even ugly at times. No one team dominated and it was the singular episodes that made the difference. Can't say we deserved to win like in 2005, but it's not like Liverpool deserved to win more or something.

2005 was an important factor but not decisive. You say our team was old, but don't forget we scored 5 goals against ManUtd in the semi finals, playing some fantastic football. That Liverpool side was not particularly great. Very mediocre players all around.

Huge blow. Someone like Ibra was necessary for tomorrow especially in terms of morale boost. Let's not forget most of these players have never played in the CL before. Not to mention Giroud is not fully fit and can only play 30-35 minutes at most. So I assume it's gonna be Rebic CF again.

True.. Bu as x-off said, the 2005 final was one of the best team performances I've seen, barring those idiotic few minutes. While Athen was much more balanced and could have easily gone either way.

I hope we still took him to England with the team. Even from the touchline he make a difference for the rest of the players imo
