  1. try to cool my heads but it seem impossible. the fact that it just moment away to get some short of result and milan just lost it to controversy. again at J stdm. snd thats stupid divebala comment just showering fire with gasoline. it not that milan love to protest against ref. it is a fact that juve always get the favor over the past 6 years at their home. and it never a small favor. It always a game changer and most of it always a ridiculous. So? juve can robe point all over serie A. but they’ll never win CL. I curse them!!

     
  2. How if all Italian team make new league without Jupe? Let Jupe stick alone in old serie A, so they could always be a champion all the time. For the good of Italian football.

     
  3. Juve can win serie A title as many as they want by sucking up ref…. But they never win CL because barca has sucked it better ….. LOL

     
  4. Calm down guys..i think our beloved milan is progressing really well in the term of playing, result will come with the times flowing..romagnoli, donnaruma,deulofeu(we must buy him), de sciglio,our main problem is still in the midfield, but I think montella is doing really well,he can become our ferguson, forza milan forever

     
  5. Gutted after this result, despite not creating enough chances I think we definately deserved a draw, we rode or luck first 15 mins of both halves but we finished strongly in both halves, can any juve fan honestly tell us that we would have gotten a penalty if it happened to us even in the San Siro against them?! Not likely. Every decision they got tonite huguain dybala surrounding the ref for yellow cards. And dybala having the neck after the match for all teams to come up with a better excuse than refs helping them win leagues, well it’s certainly helping them. I seen it two weeks ago against Napoli strange penalties given. They can’t be successful in Europe because they don’t have the help. Anyway rant over. As for us we can’t judge montella on tactics if the players are showing so much heart with limited resources, like our midfield is so poor in all honesty we can’t complain with where we are in the table. Pity delofeau has no option to buy he’d be a decent back up for us next year if we got into Europa league, I think it’s very achievable. Next 3 games are very winnable they’re vital to us. Most important signing we need in summer is donnarumma. With this guy in our team anything is possible he kept us in that game tonite. A special talent and one of ours. Let’s keep the heads up and proud to follow these lads, despite their limitations they’re pouring sweat for the red and black and that’s all we can ask for for the moment at least, it’s not montella’s fault he’s no resources to work with plus missing Suso jack locatelli abate montolivo calabria we can’t afford them losses. Anyways forza Milan keep the faith

     
    • Actually, I think Deulofeu deserves to be a starter in this team, not a backup. I’d say when bona returns, play him in midfield again, because for much of the night him and Bacca were our only goal threats. You’ve got to understand what this guy brings the team.

       
  6. 1) these senseless penalties and red cards are cold hard proofs that milan players dont have right mental approach to the game. Never mind technical and tactical aspects. Not even every barca or madrid matches are guaranteed to have penalties awarded.
    2) milan are 3 players and bonadinho away to challenge juve, let alone competing in serious competition like ucl.
    3) im sick of bacca scoring every match. I think i’d run over an orphan or kitten or puppy, whichever i find first, on the street if bacca ever scores again. Starting next match.

     
    • We are the side who has faced most penalties in the league this season.
      This is sad 🙁

      And yesssss sell Bacca! He is useless! I’ll kill some random dude on GTA V next time Bacca scores!

       
    • 1) oh no here we go again…
      2) dunno maybe if we buy Deulofeu and bona returns we’ll be a midfielder away… I really don’t know (btw we also need our full backs healthy, despite Zapata actually having a solid match).
      3) wat

       
  7. If Gattuso was on the pitch, or even as the coach, the ref would have knife slashes on him.

    But that aside, loved that Donna kissed the Milan badge after the match in Juve Stadium. They can dream on about replacing Buffon with Donna, but that is not going to happen. Not after this. Also, his comments to the media, that it is always the Juve who get these decision.

    On another point, Pasalic had no damn clue about what to do on the pitch. I know many of you think I just hate Pasalic for no reason, but just look at the match. Pasalic should not have been anywhere near the pitch, our midfield was getting completely walked over. Kucka was awesome and Poli was efficient to calm the midfield down.

    Bringing on Vangioni was a mistake in my opinion though. Should have brought in Suso for last couple of minutes if he was fit, else Lapa, and push Ocampos back.

    Genoa match will be a season decider I suppose.
    Hopefully Atalanta-Shinter will end in a draw.

     
  8. Guys stop bashing Montella for playing for a draw. Let’s be realistic we were never going to out score the juve attack without worrying about defending.

    And if ur going to blame our defense for the penalty u might as well blame Donna for the worst goal kick ever which gifted them possession in the 94th minute.

     
  9. juventus are cheats,we were given an additional 4 minutes,but the ref refused to blow on the 94th minutes after buffon was to take a goal kick,which he eventually passed to one his defenders……..shouldn’t the ref have blown then………

     
  10. “I didn’t sit here complaining about penalties against Udinese.” — Allegri. Right… the problem, Max, wasn’t just the non-existent penalty, it was the fact the match was over but we had to keep playing.

    Dybala says we’re still complaining about a “ghost goal” 6 years ago, well if Juventus had a “ghost whistle” like last night they’d be complaining for the next 12 years. Typical Jube though I guess. It’s 2006 all over again.

    Oh, and Allegri, you say we shouldn’t complain “this is football” but the difference is your sh**ty team are clear at the top of the table while we’re scrapping about for a spot in Europe. The stakes are kinda higher on our end so STFU and go manage Arsenal.

    I think you guys are right about Donnarumma though – the one good thing to come out of all this hopefully.

    Phew – rant over.

     
  11. Some headless rats are just here to rant.

    Montella had a Toyota to race against Ferrari and i still read some mischievous comments about playing for draw.

    I’m no1 Juve hater since yesterday and i’ve gone hard on my Juve fan friend. Their bribery would still be exposed and demoted to Serie D where they belong. Bunkers!!!

     
  12. Bits and pieces:
    *Bacca is our best scorer, leave him one on one it’s a goal, unless we find someone who already scores as much as Bacca, irreplaceable.
    *keep Deulofeu.
    *wow! Zapata was solid! I mean, it’s expected from Palleta, but Zapata solid as left back?
    *Donna man of the match.
    *keep Deulofeu.
    *Pasalic maybe is talented but nowhere near ready.
    *I love Kucka and Sosa.
    *keep Deulofeu.

    ZeR0W1-out.

     
  13. Its weird that this article did not mention Zapata foul on Dybala in the box and Bacca’s offside goal. I also hav one question, when you defend with your hand in the air, if the ball hits your hand is it not a freekick or penalty? if this is the case then what is the controversy here. If you go by the letter of the rule, the referee made the right decision. I could understand if his hand was by his side and they got angry for that, but De Scigio’s hand was in the air. He was also lucky to not be sent off for persistently making bad fouls. When calls go against Juve no one has a problem, but when they get a call, even as legitimate as this one, everyone has an issue. That is why Juve will always be number 1. When we lose, we blame ourselves not the ref, when others lose to us, its the refs fault. Forza Juve.

     
    • Juve have been cheating for decades. I read book about history of serie a in 98 (superga tragedy etc) and even then there’re already plenty of cases of “money politics” by juve. And of course, 97/98 season (and so on) happened. Juve – inter match was the most blatant proof of juve cheating. Also, zeman of roma accused super fit juve of doping and guess what? Their doctors were sent to jail but figc didnt Take away their scudetti. I havent even mention what they did in ’70 and ’80. So yeah, juve cheats. Thats axiom every seria follower has to believe

       
      • There’s no point arguing with mindless Jube fans like Dipsh*t Bedasie who seem to think extra time needs more extra time if they haven’t scored yet.

         
    • What foul on diveala,Zapata didn’t touch him,diveala put his foot onto Zapata foot to try and get a pk…you blind Juventus fans will always be behind The Two clubs of Milan, Mark my words the next Italian club to win champions league is going to be a club from MILAN

       
    • Even the commentators on espn said that was not a Pk, you are a Juventus fan get the f*ck out of our blog SPY

       
    • Bacca’s offside goal?Men didn’t know a human being could stoop this low. Both goals from Juve were ref assisted, Benetia was clearly off and we know what happened with the imaginary penalty.
      Having said that you may have gotten the points but our team will benefit from this in the long run, you will never win the UCL where there will be no ref assistance. I hope you now understand why you dominate in Italy but fall really short in Europe. We have nothing to be ashamed of.

       
  14. I saw nothing wrong with the match but I feel like that ball was going to the hand intentionally, no aim whatsoever from that right back!!!

     
  15. @Milan10, isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black. Listen son, it seems you are only but a few years old. I urge you to read up on totonero and then talk about cheating clubs. I have to say as a Juvefan I respect Milan a lot even their players, I loved watching the likes of Seedorf, Sheva, Pippo, Maldini, Costacurta, Boban, Kaka, Rikaard, Gullit, etc but the younger Milan fans show their age with the stupid comments they make. Ask any true Juventini or Milanista, we respect each other clubs the same way, and probably hate inter the same way. So before you youths speak about cheating know your history first. The penalty was a penalty and also Dybala should have had a penalty in the first half after being fouled by Zapata. Can anyone deny that Bacca’s goal was offside?

     
    • Yeah i know totonero scandal and milan had been punished severely for it. Problem is, juve almost never have to endure such punishment. If it wasnt for whistle blowers inter, juve wouldnt been gone unpunished for their disgraceful calciopoli. And only immature bunch use word “son” to call other to gain some sense of authority. Who are u kidding? U probably dont even know who moeller or kohler were without looking it up on internet.
      Yes the penalty was penalty but it was awarded in 95-96th minute when the added time was only 4 min.
      Its juventino not juventini btw

       
    • Hey hey @bedasie take it easy boy… can you ask your president why cameras on juve field only shows other teams in striaght lines when it comes to offside decisions!!! and when it comes to juve on benatia case it shows it from the back or from an angle? and not straight, one time they said it’s because the way they situated the cameras, well go ask who ordered that. you talking about milan in the 80’s when all teams used to cheat around the world. now you have all that technology you need in the world and still in italy trying to prevent it and don’t wanna use it, do you know why? am sure you know why. listen kid. i watched seria a games more than the hair on your head. if you have any. and go see how juve cheated in almost every big game was deciding who will be the champion(did you see muntari goal in juve when you stole the scudetto after coming back from seria b? or you blind and think luciano moogi did all that and not the agnelli family?). from milan to inter, to roma and any team were about to win the league and they were around, always juve were the team to be involved in winning and not losing, mostly by referees chosing to give juve the 3 points. so many of these games still on youtube and you can find them. if the champions league was made in italy. then you would of seen juve won all of them. but too bad is not… the agnelli family are known who they are. go read your history.

      only thieves enjoy the fake winning and jump out of joy. few years from now the same story will happen to juve. same way when zidan and the rest played for juve and when they were asked about( did you know about it?) they said we don’t know and avoided to answer. pippo inzaghi used to be awarded penalties right and left every time he fell in the box(even if juve players pushed him lol) when he was juve player. we didn’t see same treatment when he moved to milan. all those players who left juve when they been relegated to seria b have morals. and those who stayed in the team are not, including buffon. bcz he came back and won it again by cheating 100% legit goal was not allowed.

      say hi to mussolini when juve won most leagues under fascism regime, your history starts there.

       
  16. @ Dipchan Bedasie. I respect your opinion but it really feels bad if you are always on the other side of the referee’s decision. Allegri cried foul as our coach when he was denied the goal that gave juve the scudetto. to see them same team on the receiving end of a controversial penalty after added time had been exhausted raises more questions. It is hard to deny that referee love juve apparently because their colour is closest to their uniform, the only team that should enjoy as much preference as juve is Udinese but they don’t have so much money, if you understand what I mean

     
  17. Why are these rogue Juve fans here, why is the admin not deleting their statements? This isnt Serie A blog, this is For Us By Us (FUBU) so stop coming here.

    Listen up,

    You can always cheat ur ways out in Serie A and have more scudeto but you will never win the Champions League again, U can spend a billion euro but you will never win it bcos ur bribery wont work with Uefa. I lost every respects for you bandits since yesterday and get out if here fools. I hate you so much now.

     
    • let him stay and we hear what he has to say and we answer him back, any1 should be welcome here. even if they are juve fans.
      he doesn’t know that most teams around europe and not only italy does not like them because they cheat. and laugh at them because they cannot do it in europe when it comes to champions league. and the poor boy still wondering why it’s hard for juve to win that trophy. he’s lost and am sure he says to himself( is it bcz we cheat in italy or no!!! it cannot be!!! or maybe it is. let me stay quiet and enjoy the wins bcz scudettos is better than nothing.)

       
  18. Hey Milan10, a few corrections:

    – it is not 4 minutes additional time, it is a minimum of 4 minutes additional time
    – The penalty was awarded in 94:19 minutes. You may see footballtarget.com
    – The referee only added on the time that Sosa wasted when he received his second yellow card for a ridiculous challenge that he should not have made. He could have done what Poli did.
    – No one here have admitted that Dybala should have been awarded a penalty in the first half.

    I believe we should make our views without being ignorant and that is what I am trying to do. I find it hard to debate against anyone who is closed minded, and I am not saying you are Milan10, but there are others here who may be.

    People talk about the Mialn “ghost goal” still but forget to mention in the same game Matri had a legitimate goal ruled offside when it was not.

    I am a Juventini and I support almost all Italian teams in Europe, with the exception of Inter. I support Milan a lot and have utmost respect for them, but controversy should not be created when there is none. last weekend Juve got bad decisions against Udinese and no one from Juve made a fuss, not the players nor the coach. Allegri, who I believe is an honest person, even when he was with Milan this was my belief, came out and said we did not deserve to win because we did not play well and congratulated Udinese. Why in other countries there is not this controversy for each decision like Spain, England and Germany. This is what keeps back Italian football. There are games referees will make mistakes for each team, not just a Milan , Juve, ManU, Barca or Real and there are games decisions will go against you. What you don’t want is for football to become like cricket and controlled by technology. Once the mistake is not a blatant mistake like the Juve Morata goal ruled out against Bayern for offside, or the so called Milan ghost goal, I do not see what is the issue. However we have to accept that referees are human and will make mistakes just like you and I. Sometimes you just have to move past it because you will only live in the past.

    Good luck in your other games Milan and whether or not anyone here believes me, I actually wanted Milan to finish in a CL spot.

     
    • 1) its 4 m max not 4 m min. So by ur logic the game couldve gone on until 120th min? Nah
      2) so its beyond 4 min right?
      3) dybala tried to make contact with zapata’s foot tripping himself neymar style not the other way around.

      I get ur point though; bad decisions happen, either we can accept it and move on or not. To be quite honest, i accept that better team on that day won. I didnt even complain about the handball itself. But one must be blindly subjective if he thinks juve, or italian football in general, are immune to scandal. Furthermore, u cant just say forza juve on milan blog and not expect reactions from milanisti.

      Ive been following serie a since late ’80 and while i really enjoyed watching lippi’s juve tearing it up in ’90 ucl, ive seen some matches where juve were clearly favorited over their opponents (juve – inter in 97-98, juve parma ’00-01 etc). the proofs are there. Now, im not saying milan are saints themselves as they have been found guilty of match fixing more than once, like u said. But with juve, it seems almost inevitable that they will get favourable calls from referees, year in year out.

      I understand that some people accuse dominant clubs of getting favourable calls from the referees when its just their dominance on the field that causes opponents to make mistakes that lead to penalties or last minute goals. Some might even say people are jealous of juve’s dominance in serie a but no one has accused bayern or even madrid of cheating their ways to domestic titles.

      All in all, its just in-the-heat-of-the-moment comments from us milanisti which are normal considering the situation but now we all have to let it go and move on. Its football after all

       
  19. @Dipchan Bedasie. I like the quality of your presentations and you make valuable points, but the fact is that it is VERY difficult to accept as a Milan fan when calls like this go against you when playing juve, more so when in the same season you have similar calls virtually against all the big rivals. For once seria a is united against juve because Inter Roma etc suffered the same fate. I was surprised to see our perennial rival inter, identify with us, it was the height of it and it difficult to believe that juve does not influence the referees especially against the back drop of the match fixing experience that is not too long ago. Please just understand us when we feel this way, it is really not easy to handle.

     
  20. @Milan10, very true just regarding the same season thing just like Pjanic’s perfectly good goal ruled out earlier this season. So we can agree on that point.

     
  21. Our run-in isn’t too bad. But we need to make our games against Shinter and Atalanta count. And hopefully compete with Roma at home

    Shinter have a couple of tricky games yet: to us, Fiorentina, and Napoli in succession, then hopefully a heavy defeat to Lazio in the penultimate round.

    Atalanta still have to play Roma and Juve before facing us

    Lazio also have yet to play Napoli, Roma and Fiorentina before Shinter.

     
  22. fans complaining about montella tactics & selections……..please what do you have on d bench? even that OCAMPOS is shitty and a SCAM…….if we had 2 to 3 solid high caliber players on d bench wud have said he fucked up but NO…….APACHE am behind u 100/100……….i only watch MILAN in serie A cos dats d only club i know….love & bleed for…….d league itself was dead & long gone over the years……….no TV right, Sponsorship……its not even Air anywhere than d low quality graphic display RAI Italia…….no one wants to waste time & resources showing a league with dilapidated stadiums…..some of d clubs jerseys is nightmare…….beautiful girls dont even come to stadiums anymore when the state of the stadiums are not eve safe……A league where only one SHITTY club is being supported to dominate the others…..how would the other teams make money or attract big spenders…….OFFICIATING is just the worst…..was thinking d league in my country NIGERIA was d icing on the cake when it comes to poor officiating but italian league is by far the WORSTED of them all…..not to even talk of the stomach rumbling OFFSIDE calls all d time when on replay u find out d player is onside & when is OFFSIDE he is flagged ON……i think its high time we take our darling beloved club to another country if the other clubs are not willing to join us to boycott dis disgraceful league called SERIE A
