dear all,
the 1st half was just ended. still 0-0, but barca took control.
what milan can be proud of is their defence. well organized.
i would like to thank genoa for loaning out boateng. he worked very hard to help milan’s defence & attack as pirlo is getting older and slower.
i understand why milan’s forwards had difficulties to score a goal. b’coz no creativity in midfield! only boateng who had capability to dribble up to penalti box and made crosses! pirlo and ambrossini were acting as DM.

sad news, 2nd half just started and villa made score.
cheers.

HOLLY COW! super pippo netted a superb goal on 68′.
it reminds me of van basten’s goal in euro 1988 but in different angle.
thanks to seedorf’s long pass.
however, milan cannot expect that magic moment would always happen.
need more young & creative players in midfield!

yup milan was beaten again on penalty. it’s okay. barca could win with more than 2 goals difference. sorry for all pirlo’s fans, but i think milan should start to get rid of him. with the squad that milan has, i think it would be better if allegri plans to change from 4-3-3 to 4-4-2 (diamond in midfield). if he wants to have a strong DM, just choose flamini instead of pirlo. i think papa/yepes can also become an excellent DM too! for wingers, RW could be odu/montelongo and LW : boateng as they are fast and have good dribbling.… Read more »

I must say milan defence is in order and we have 3 great goal keppers ,pirlo looks awful in this midfield in this 4-3-3 system milan needs a faster playmaker its best if we play 4-2-3-1 or 4-2-1-3, boateng and abate played great , inzaghi came on and did what borriello and huntelaar couldn’t do for 45 mins.

@TWF I’m agree with you bro. Pirlo (and Ambro) already past his time. They made so much mistakes in the 1st half. But i’m happy that Boateng and our defence lines are very good! In the 2nd half, Abate really made a good performance. Even though he let Adriano made a cross for the 1st goal. But for the rest, he’s perfect! Messi & Bojan even can’t through his defence. I think Abate is more comfortable with RB position. And Odu, Strasser, and Merkel too made a good performance. We really need this Primavera’s kids! Overall, Allegri is better than… Read more »

no i dont think allegri is better leonardo. should not compare the coaches. leo set down the backbone of how milan played today. its a different style from how we played under carlo. and it was leo’s decision to convert abate to RB anw.

correct me if i’m wrong, i think that milan doesn’t have enough time to sign new players. so, with the existing squad allegri needs to finalize his strategy immediately.
the main problem is in midfield. the strikers would do their job properly if the midfielders are more supportive.

allegri & his assistants need to solve that.
put me in and i will help you coach with my analysis haha. just kidding. sure allegri already had some experts.
cheers.
