Actually that's closer to the mark, but the point remains the same. When you see the Italian leaders losing at home to Spurs in their first Champions League campaign, it's easy to believe the received wisdom that Serie A is shite, even though there's not a single team in England as exciting as Udinese at the moment. Let's face it, the top teams in the EPL are useless at the moment too.

Whilst the top teams in Italy are not what they were and are dragging the league down (though Inter are improving under Leonardo), the general standard is better than England across the board.

The premiership is completely shite outwith about 5 or 6 teams and the football on offer is often awful. It's also worth noting that the premiership's main selling point of having the top sides in Europe is fastly dwindling. Man Utd are not impressive, Arsenal are inconsistent and Chelsea have been dire for months

Birmingham won the league cup with a big punt up the park. That would not happen in Italian football.

They are a better team at the moment.

Chelsea were the best team in England by a mile up until a few months ago.

They are a club in meltdown.

Ancelotti is a strange character. Seems to drift from being a genius to cluelessness. Was an odd appointment given Milan's lack of success in recent years. He can't be faulted last season however.

Prince Boateng is going to be key for Milan at the Lane. Milan seriously lacked any attacking threat from their midfield 3 at the San Siro.

Pato makes it 3-0 with a great curling shot into the top corner. He is another one that must start against Spurs.

Pretty sure Abramovich would have had his Champions League success at the front of his mind when making the appointment, not his domestic failure.
