Notes of a wandering American soccer fan

DC United were Inter Milan?

Posted by steigs on August 5, 2008

In response to my last post, someone pointed out that DC United has already been imitating a team from Milan — Inter, not AC Milan.  Inter has rolled through Serie A in recent years without ever making a serious run at the Champions League.  Sound familiar, other fans of the back-to-back Supporters Shield winning DC United?

We shook up our team, letting former MVP Gomez go etc.  Inter, on the other hand, brought in the “Special One.”  Maybe Mourinho will drive an Inter team with much the same core deep into the Champions League.  I suppose we could have tried that route — but I doubt United was ready to make him the first “designated manager.”
