AC Milan has been experiencing some great performances in the last few matches, propelling them to the fourth spot in the Serie A Table.

Thanks to a reinvented Ronaldinho, who found his samba moves along with his smile.

Pato and Boriello have found the back of the net again, Nesta is playing like he is 21, and Pirlo has once again found his mojo. So far, this has been a winning combination.  

I must also commend Abate for his last performances, up until the point that he was sent off against Napoli; he had been displaying great speed and skill. I don’t believe he deserved a red card, but that is exactly what this beautiful game of ours is like.

Dida as well seems to have found his form once again, making some very important, or should I say game-winning, saves! Although, I have to say that he is having a hard time holding on to the ball.

The first game against Real Madrid, he dropped the ball right at Raul’s feet, which of course resulted in a goal. At their home game against Real Madrid this week, after a powerless shot from Kaka, Dida was once again unable to hold on to the ball, resulting in a goal. What is going on?

After the winter break, Becks will be re-joining the team. At the urging of the Three Lions Coach Fabio Capello, and in hopes of making the 2010 World Cup roster, Becks has once again orchestrated a deal that will give him a better chance to attain his goal of once again representing his nation in the world cup.

Boss Fabio Capello has mentioned more than once that for Becks to be called up he must be playing at top form, and that does not equal playing for the L.A. Galaxy.

Last season when the same move was made, Becks had a remarkable run. He almost instantly gained a spot on the starting 11 and just seemed to bring the team together. In my opinion, he will be a nice addition.

Serie A Top Four Standings are as follows:

1) Inter – 28 points

2) Juventus – 21 points, with a 9 GD

3) Sampdoria – 21 points with a 5 GD

4) AC Milan – 19 points

In order to close the seven point gap to Inter, they must take advantage of every opportunity to score points and hope that Inter stumbles.

This Sunday AC Milan plays 15th place Lazio, Inter plays Roma, and Juventus plays Atalanta. Should provide a great weekend of entertaining football.
