Switching to the footie for a second...

First: Those crazy Italian fans

Every idiot out there who has never seen a game in his life always naturally assumes that the English are the only hooligan offenders out there. Uh-huh. Compare the atmosphere at Highbury or Stamford Bridge or St. James' Park or even The Valley (hell, anywhere outside of The New Den, really), to what's going on in Serie A...or the Argentine league. I saw matches at Highbury, Shite Hart Lane, and third-division (at the time) Griffin Park, and never for a SECOND felt like I was in harm...even wearing my Arsenal shirt to S***s' ground. Between this account and what happened to Wales' travelling fans during Euro 2004 qualifiers, I wouldn't go see a Serie A game if you paid me (not to mention the fact that it's over-defensive, dive-happy shite).

Second: AC Milan is NOT messing around

Assuming we can get past Chelski, you'd have to think that these guys are Arsenal's biggest threat at stopping us from winning our first-ever European Cup. Even though it's especially hard for the holders to repeat, this Milan team seems like they're more than capable of doing it.
