Lionel Messi's Clasico for the ages, Arsenal surprise us, Inter in trouble

The FC crew debate if Lionel Messi truly is the greatest footballer to ever play.

Sometimes they live up to the hype. Sometimes they surpass it.

From the neutral's perspective, Sunday night's Clasico took it to another level. No matchup in the world has as much talent on the pitch even with Neymar missing and Gareth Bale succumbing to injury after just more than half an hour, and few have had as much drama, individual displays of talent, handbrake turns in the narrative and end-to-end excitement as what we witnessed.

And, as far as Lionel Messi is concerned, we've had the...

Inter capitulate at Fiorentina despite Mauro Icardi's consolation hat trick

Mauro Icardi celebrates with Inter Milan teammates after scoring a goal against Fiorentina.
Mauro Icardi scored a hat trick but it was too little, too late as Inter's recent struggles continued at Fiorentina.

Inter contrived to relegate their recent failures to mere footnote by allowing Fiorentina to mount a stunning comeback. Up 2-1 after a topsy-turvy first half, one could have been forgiven to think that Stefano Pioli's men had been gifted a reprieve. Ever intent on constantly bamboozling their long-suffering fan, the Nerazzurri allowed a Kalinic-less Viola to somehow net four goals in seventeen horrific minutes.

Matias Vecino -- who hadn't netted all season -- and Khouma Babacar ended up with two...

With no better alternatives available, Inter must back manager Stefano Pioli

FC's Gab Marcotti dives into the rumours of Stefano Pioli's demise at Inter Milan following their 2-2 draw with AC Milan.

For a week that has seen Inter let bitter rivals AC Milan earn a stunning 2-2 comeback draw, it is strange that Saturday's match against Fiorentina should take such importance.

Is it because their opponents are four points behind, despite somehow contriving to lose to Empoli last week? Or because recent trips to Florence have resulted in two embarrassing losses and one, in which Inter collapsed after taking the lead?

Not really.

Rather, it's because Inter's yearly humiliations at the hands...

Mourinho gets it right, Conte gets it wrong; drama in Milan; Messi, Isco star

Stewart Robson joins the FC show to analyse Man United's massive win over Chelsea, including Mourinho's stellar tactics.

Jose Mourinho made it seem like it was no big deal. It was, he said, pretty much the same game plan that Manchester United used against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup last month, and had that quarterfinal tie remained 11 vs. 11 -- Ander Herrera was sent off in the first half -- he was "totally convinced" that it would also have resulted in victory, just as it did on Sunday when his side beat the Premier League leaders 2-0.

In fact, though, it was a big deal. Mourinho left out the likes...

Joao Mario, Mauro Icardi impress but Inter collapse late in the Milan derby

Stefano Piolo laments Inter's inability to see off Milan in their thrilling 2-2 draw.

Stefano Piolo laments Inter's inability to see off Milan in their thrilling 2-2 draw.

The first Chinese Derby della Madonnina was a scorcher -- for the neutral, anyway.

Inter blew a two-goal lead to their bitter rivals in a catastrophic second half. Milan had started better, but the recovering Roberto Gagliardini broke the deadlock by finding Antonio Candreva with a peach of a long ball on 36 minutes.

The game looked to be over when Mauro Icardi played a sumptuous give-and-go with Ivan Perisic to bury a second on the stroke of half-time.

Though the Rossoneri pushed more in...

Milan giants hoping new Chinese investment will lead to glory days again

Paul Mariner and Alexis Nunes discuss Milan's future after Silvio Berlusconi relinquished control of the club.

Nine months after the Nanking-based Suning Group bought Inter Milan, the takeover of rivals AC Milan by Rossoneri Sport Investment Lux, led by Chinese businessmen Yonghong Li and Han Li, has finally been completed and just in time for Saturday's Derby della Madonnina.

An all-Chinese affair now, the belief that the drawn-out deal would get over the line by this Thursday persuaded the league to do something it has never done before and schedule its most prestigious fixture for a Saturday lunchtime...
