Stupid Allegri is playing 3 forwards – STUPID. They won 4:0 the first game and should just be defending. Mesbah is absolutely HORRIBLE!!
haha my post is waiting moderation.
but in other words: 350k, and berlu buy more bit ches instead of helping Milan. Antonini > Mesbah anyday. MOREOVER: BONERA > MESBAH ANYDAY.
oh and also.
We lack speed in attack. El Sharaawy is scared when he has the ball, i can see it.
WE NEED SOMEONE CALLED ALEXANDRE PATO.
what is wrong with our defenders today? We need to do something because if we kick of this game don’t know what will happen to some of Milan Fans.
im just gonna commit suicide bro. no joking.
btw Mesbah is not to be blamed
mesbah, if we are out tonight; we are never gonna forgive you, never!
My GOD,Milan is out of UCL…is it goin to end today?
so yeah milan needs to buy a left back coming this summer and bring back didac…i dont know how we made cricito slipped through our hands last summer but he wasnt worth 15mill also, perhaps amero of udinese could fill tha void as mesbah,anto nor bonera is = to 1 left back….
im gonna call the emirates security and tell them theres a bomb on the stadium and ill blow it up in 5 minutes if milan will not change the game…
I can feel your rage man! I dunno how many hair I’ve pulled out so far. THIS IS FRUSTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATING!!!
mesbah was arsena’s 12th man!
House whats happening here. Am seriously sweeting here. Is this going to be the worst night for Milan in european football?
btw I hope even when we’re out if we keep going like this, Napoli will win CL. They are the 2nd team to deserve CL after Milan.
I am scared to watch anymore. This is the worst Milan performance may be 2004 against Deportivo was similar I did not watch so can’t tell. But they look scared everyone and they look like they are here to loose 5-0 or 6-0. Way this game is going right now I wont be surprised if milan loose 6 -0 or 7-0. We need to change. Get ride of one striker bring in two defensive midfielders. May be bring someone who can calm things down. I am so unhappy and nervous now. No where to hide my ass!
THIS IS ALLEGRI’s FAULT – he picked a wrong formation and wrong players for game like this.
even bonera in ten years would be better than mesbah
even if we score, it’s not over
arsenal looks like theyll score 6,7,8 goals today
nooooo no zambrotta emanuelson must switch to left back and sub mesbah for aquilani that is all we need to du….we can score in this game we jst need to focus…arsenal have the advantage now but we need to score step up to the plate MILAN TILL I DIE
great…ibra choses 2nite of all nite to select a match…hmmm.
I do! I still believe in Allegri!
@Lado,i am also sweating as well,dont loose hope tho
lol… i can’t jst not laugh out of devastation from what am seeing…. i really dnt knw wat he was thinking when starting the three attackers we have, and why didnt we register muntari again!????! honestly it is weird hw we jst cant lose concentration when winning… my sugestion: change into a 4-2-3-1… ask ibra to keep attacking and sub in aquilani for SES.. Have Faith!!!!!! 1 goal is all we need!!!!!
I think I agree with Matt even if we score 1 they can score another 3/4. It is so scary way we are playing. And remember dude the pressure these players are in now. The humiliation awaits they know it. In the deportivo match we had Maldini,Nesta,Cafu and we still gave in. So much so for the best defender in the world . Thiago was at fault for the second goal. Mesbah I am sorry for him. He is not that bad and he just needs to be subbed as soon as possible.
what a drama. now, alegri and all understand why i say (so many times) the importance of giving pressure to other opponents’ midfielders. the rule of thumb is looked simple (but it is hard to apply it. probably, only capello who is successful with the strategy) : never give any free space to other opponent’s midfielders and be consistent with it for 90 minutes. good luck, milan. let’s make some goals.
Unbelievable …i reserve my comment till after the game
I am shaking and sweating. I can see trouble.
its over, allegri has no no clue wat to do u watch, we r done.
Guys, Mesbah might be doing badly in this game , if he is, but shouldn’t be attacked like that. All the other games he has played well, and has offered stability in that area, unlike the other LB.
We should have another DM in, but we don’t have one as they are all injured. Allegri is playing the same formation I think. We are Milan, we don’t go and defend, we are no small team!
We need to score tonight before they hit their fourth
robinho is horrible!
com on man com on
This mesbah guy is worst than Taiwo.
Somebody please tell me why robinho is in the field. Mesbah at least made two or three tackles and I do not think so with antonini or bonera we ‘d be any good. Midfield needs to press . We are missing Kevin Prince!!!
if arsenal is smart they can just run directly at mesbah and with there pace bamb milan is done simple as tht
is he gonna make the sub or wat
61 mins …29 mins please .. dont concede anymore. I wont be able to show my face tomorrow at school if we loose this tie….
guys Mesbah is still doing something at least. I think we need to sub Urby and Robinho bring anyone …
yes yes come on milan we can still do it. 65 mins pleaseeeeeeee 25 mins more.. hang on
Allegri needs to strengthen the midfield
I can’t Imagine how miserable I will be if Milan looses this tie. Oh dear lord, Please!
This is by far the longest game I ever watched, and might need to have my heart checked afterword
for god’s sake Allegri! Why SeS? why not Urby???
since when allegri’s actions are logical??!!
yes acqualini is on finally…. We need to score in next 10 mins to kill this tie.
i am going to crazy..
Why not robinho? I counted he had three balls in 2nd half and he gave away to opponent. Brazilians are not made up for pressure cooker situations.. we need italian grit!
Ibra is putting very foot wrong tonight.
Arrrrrrgh, im so sad right now,
what is milan doing.
I nevr wnna see that mesbah guy nomore.
Milan so clueless. So clueless
i mean so Fuckin clueless.
Im so hurt.
Lord help us.
My friends would mock me if we shit out tonight.
oh this is crazy. So crazy
8 mins please hold on. I am going to fucking get a heart attack.. why time seems to tick so slow at this moment?
