    Gazzetta had an interesting article today.

    It says in the last 3 seasons the average point total of the 4th place team has been 68 points. That's basically the goal.

    that means we need 44 points in 21 games. That means we need around 13 wins, 5 ties, and we are "allowed" 3 losses.

    But with the way Fiorentina and Udinese are playing this season 68 may not be enough, so we have to get going fast.

    We need to win most of those games for sure and 3 losses will be tough - we still have Juventus, Inter, Roma, Fiorentian, Udines to play again.
    I feel more confident in some of these other teams dropping points than us, unfortunately.

    i'm not sure if it is a good thing but I have good hope that we will get 4th place. If we win our make-up game we will be tied for 5th with udinese and if we beat fiorentina then we will be just 1 point behind them.

    P.S. should i be this hopeful?

    I share your concerns about Udinese and Fiorentina.
    I wonder how much Goal Diff. will play into this race?

    Milan may end up like Bayern Munich and be messin
    around next season in the UEFA Cup.

    yeah, no less than a draw at fiorentina is a necessity, a win would be very nice, of course, but a loss opens the gap back up to 10 with only 1 game in hand, and that would make it really tough.

    I think Milan have to be thinking win all the way.
    The time for draws is over.

    Atalanta's last minute draw with Fiorentina today gives us a real chance to close in on that 4th place spot.

    If we win our next two matches we will be alone in 4th place. Even I didn't think we'd climb up to 4th so quickly. If we can keep winning I think then Juve might be the team fighting off Udinese and Fiorentina for 4th.

    Well...Juve keep finding ways to win games. You can't hate them for it, afterall its what they're known for.

    4th place is looking more and more realistic.
    Grindin out wins seems to be the Rossoneri special
    this season and it is exactly what they need.
