Milan are getting whipped – how can you win 2:0 in the first game and just give it away like this…
Weren’t u guyz so confident that WE ARE GOING TO TIKI TAKA THEM!?
Never forget where u re cumin 4rm!

You can neva rule out experience in games like this.
I only hope it doesn’t affect d psch of d players.
The league is and has always been d priority.
Hpe 2 qualfy by d grace of god.got a feelin we re goin 2 qualify
Lol milan pressurin barca.go 4 it guys.nothin 2 lose
:(… feeling horrible!
Seriously guys the match is just fix. Is as simple as that, the match is rigid and fix, cos this Milan is just not as the Milan that played before, so I will say Galliani and Rosell or whatever his name is. The game is just fix, first they make it look big to we fans to be optimistic as we already know that is just a way to accumulate more fans for Milan. Nice one Galliani and Berlusconi.
Lord pls help.help help help help help
i said it b4 when it comes to away matches in d uefa champions league games most especially in d knockout stage milan are not competent.i said it b4 bt someone oppose me dat i shld look at milan history wot nonsense dat was den.and i also said d kitt.d jersey we are wearing today as not bin odain for succes.well is all gud.niang should be loaned he is not yet ready for milan.ambro should retire next season

EL SHARAWY TERRIBLE TODAY
NIANG IS NOT READY TO PLAY UCL
BOATENG TERRIBLE TODAY
SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME
Plz sack Alegri
Am off to bed
Why score 2 goals at home?????
Would be better if it was a draw at san siro…. they gave us hope… and then played like this…
Stupid strategy … all players have no soul … no desire to win
Another glorious coaching job by your hero Allegri. Flamini, ambrosini, and constant on the team at all nevermind in the starting lineup tonight. It is laughable. I am finished with Milan until Allegri is removed. Playing not to lose rather than playing to win….the Allegri way. What an embarrasment of epic levels. I am disgusted and ashamed.
Only 1 advice.pls guys dust dis defeat.blessin in disguise.we can focus on the league.i wil be rootin 4 juve from now on in d champ league.
Bad game. To this day I don’t know why Milan fans don’t have humility. I was quiet cause I know our team has a tendency to throw leads away look now we lost. The way some fans went on. I hate BARCA,please I’m tired of seeing this team everytime.
Shame on milan
Dis is d worst lost ever so angry4-0 insult
This lose is on Allegri – he is a stupid coach.
Why blame Allegri. The team were just bad. Niang lost us the game if he scored we would have period.
No matter what, acbaba will still support Allegri all the way. Shame. I blame allegri for this result, hes dull..pls get Montella, Montella would good for us, just watch Viola playing guys, he is the best manager so far in serie a , trust me
WHYYYY GIVE US HOPE?????????
WHY DIDNT LOST IN SAN SIRO ALSO??? WHY WIN THERE????
Guys lets put it clearly and not sugar coat it… we lost…players were nervous and DID NOT show up to the party…our players played like the away goal wasnt important @ all… Im lookin forward to finishing the league on a high nw and for Napoli to brace themselves because we want 2nd place. All in all im Milan through and through till I day. I love you all and lets move on from this loss bcuz arguin and blaming wont take us anywhere we are the Milanista #FORZAMILAN
I gotta say that Milan were beat fairly, there were no bad calls and no bs. The thing is de sciglio is going to be our left back from now on until constant earns it back. For all you guys who said Niang is sooooo good and he should start I sadly have to say “I told you so”. Not composed in front of goal at all, how many times is he gonna hit the fr3akin post?!?! Absolutley rediculous! 3-0 is pathetic(the 4th goal was from pusing up to get a goal) and this once again proves our Center Backs… Read more »
Wat a bad birthdy gift from milan.up milan anyway.milan milan milan till i die.forza milan.4 – 2 aggregate from dis budget milan is great.no disgrace.forza forza forza milan till i die!:-( sigh
Said it many times but we need to spend actual money on the midfield in the summer. Montolivo is completely on his own there. Everyone bar De Jong was FREE for a club like Milan that’s ridiculous. In the mean time I really think Bojan should be playing there. Still I do like this team much more than the last 2 years’ Ibra + guests.
@gaza get ur facts straight bro.i never said i supported him.but imagine if niang had scored.wasn’t our day period.lets shake off this defeat fast and look forward when we wil hav a complete squad 4 the Ucl again.and i would love to play this barca again.
We won in the San Siro. But I’ve been a Milan fan. Its not easy being a Milan fan,I’ve seen leads thrown away. Guys all I say the game isn’t over until the 2nd leg. Messi finally did it too,2 goals from open play
WHAT A JOKE. Not what I expected after the way we played in the first leg. We looked like a typical scared little team, letting Bathelona runs rings around us, playing like a bunch of old women. I’d have taken Constant off at half time. He was the worst player on the pitch and how Allegri didn’t replace him with DeSciglio is a mystery. BUT we were unlucky also. Niang hitting the post, Pazzini getting injured and of course Bathelona with their obligatory goal from the ref. God I’m so sick of these tiki-taki midgets. Sheva’s ghost goal, Nesta’s “infringement,”… Read more »
@Greg its good u are thinkin wel bro.oda’s are still beclouded with emotions.shake dem of bros
Constant was terrible definitely flop of the game
I was sure they will lose , but not with a score like this. Loan Niang till he grows up for Milan.Also Ambrosini shud retire. Flamini shud not be on starting 11. Anyways todays milan had nothing to do with football.
am ashamed of my fellow milan fans,so because we lost,we now insult our players and coach!!!! the team was bad but that has not called for all this insults.we are milan and should always [email protected] back of our players;no matter what.lets just focus in seria and stop all this trash.we must not always win.
Milan forever and ever and ever and ever… dia wil be always CPL…we continue frm next season..cheers!
De scieglio should have played – bad mistake from Allegri. Good thing is that this team is young and will only get better – bad is that as long as Allegri is the coach, we will win nothing. Niang should have played last 10 muinutes, not from the start. You have 2:0 lead from home game and you start with three forwards against the best team in the world – tell me that’s not coach’s fault…
Another champisons league season without glory. today was an awful lose. i am very disappointed. In times like this we miss senators who could stop the landslide. Second and third goal were direct result of inexperiance, kicking ball in the middle of the field and getting punished second later. barcelona had more possesion but they werent dangerous, they didnt have many scoring oppurtunites. all in all, this defeat was a good school for the youngsters and a farewell to players who cant help ac milan in the future (yepes, ambrosini, robinho, flamini). I feel very bad for niang. the guy… Read more »
A great team isn’t one that always wins.its one that finds the strenght to get up when they are down.barca proved that tonight against milan.lets do so against palermo.
They lost because they were awful, these guys have disappointed us because they played without their hearts and nerves. SHOCKING!!!!
Not sure why Allegri went with a 4-3-3 when a 4-5-1 would have made more sense. We didnt need to score we just needed to frustrate them the entire time and clog the midfield since thats how they play!
I have to say; Allegri got it wrong today and that’s a major concern becuase we cant approach every game with the same formation especially if the games are over two legs!
I agree 100% nick – why you play 3 forwards against best team in the world with 2:0 lead? WTF was Allegri thinking? Should have started Muntari and De Sceglio and we would have been through…
@luke…Allegri will never be a great coach if he doesn’t learn how to adjust his team during matches or during a season. It takes him too long to understand that.
Thats why coaches like Conte will be superior to him! I love the formation changes Conte makes with Juve as much as I dont like Juve, but had it been Conte, Barca would have been eliminated today!
NIck, totally agree with you – he is not a Milan level coach and never will be. I love Milan but I hope they get a better coach.
@Acbaba spot on bro…I’m not that heart-done by the result, I shrugged it off within minutes..I’m amped for next season
Thank u sarcavin.i learn’t somethin else.we should keep bojan.
I like Bojan we can always use more technical ability especially in midfield I’d like to see him there
Apart from that.he should be ahead of niang.niang ain’t ready yet
I love milan so much
