we need ljajic..honda will join upcoming January,by that time niang gets time to play more and improve as a real quality player….it would be a shame if we even loan this great talent to genoa or smwhr else for getting more time to play…he has hot perfectly fit with milan…hope with these trio milan bag 60 goals these season…balo(25),elsha(20),niang(15)
and hopefully if ljajic joins he score 10….
and honda too atleast(8-10)
Serie A,we are gonna take u by storm..Forza Milan

As I see, De Jong came on the field and horrible silvestre left ! Poli again used more as a right defensive midfilder… don’t understand allegri, put Pacifico on center and take of noce, it’s 2-0 for crying out loud !

Ah viktor, let it go. Allegri love to ruin players or field them out of positions. This is his trademark. I dont know what exsactly are we playing. Did allegri just close the game with every defensive player in the team. Muntari, traore, noche, de jong and poli on the right bach. facepalm

Interviewed by Africa Top Sports, AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has declared: “I think that the Bundesliga remains an extremely interesting tournament, expecially now. For me it’s the best league in the world. The speed, the players, the youngsters: I would move back there at 100%”.

I WISH YOU DO!!!

Traore, Muntari n Nocerion have ruined the 2nd half.. I dont get Allegri in this match. Keeping the likes of Pacifico, Cristante, Gabriel n Petegna on bench to play Amelia, Muntari, Traore n Nocerino

Guys I think the reason why Allegri is putting on Traroe-Nocerino-Amelia instead of Gabriel-Cristante and others youngsters is to give them some display and have some teams maybe interested in them so that they can make a bit. When else are they going to get time when everybody is fit and the full season is on. I say good plan by Allegri… Hopefully we get rid of Traroe-Nocerino-Zaccardo-Antonini…. PLease god get rid of these guys

Great first half ! Stinky second after traore came in alongside nocerino !
For me MVP is POLI without no doubt ! Niang was in the first half but overall Poli was great ! Great assist, great ball control ! allegri really has to use him alongside Monto and De Jong otherwise he’ll convince the whole world what a big retard he is !
Honorable mentions to Zapata and Zaccardo ! they were ideal today !

FORZA MILAN !!!

Milan unbelievably punished L A Galaxy for 90mins. I think Poli is indispensable in this team, he gives very high work rate, creativity, speed and assurance in midfield.

Great game guys for beating the same team that raped our Italian cousins

I’m sorry,not a fan of Traore nor Nocerino and God knows what other crap players you talking of.
All I’m saying is,he has shown little improvement in this preseason games i’ve watched him play.He somehow seem mentally lost and empty just like last season second-round.I doubt he’s going to perform greatly like he did the first round of last season – I’ll be glad if he proves me wrong though……just saying.

From today on poli is going to RB, I can tell you that. Muntari will take his place in MF. Anyway, what matters now is who we meet in the UCL playoffs. You know, sometimes I think Allegri is just clowning. No one who cares for his job makes the decisions as rediculouse as his. I think he intentionally wants to make a joke out of Milan. No wonder inzaghi told him he is not seriouse about his job. Anyway it was just a friendly game against a weaker opponent, I don’t we should read much into it. As for… Read more »

I strongly agree with your comment about Niang. I was shocked to hear we were considering loaning him out. He is more advanced than SES and Mario were at his age. Most importantly, with Pazzini hurt, unless we trust Robinho, Niang should be our first substiitute in a 4312, and a possible starter in a 433.

*Also, “on the pitch”, Niang links better with Mario than SES does. Perhaps he is more willing to defer to Mario, which can be a good thing.

@vikto.get a grip on urself man..its a damn pre-season..what’s ur problem with allegri anyway..u complain too much man,relax.poli is not a right back..if u knew anything about tactics,u ll understand what I mean..nocerino,traore, are milan players so get used to dem and stop Complaining always..we are doing better than all italian teams in preseason so let the team continue working hard..if poli playing at right back is what ll give us the scudetto,so be it..we are talking of a defence that has abate,de sciglio,mexes,vagara out injured and the coach is trying to make that unit work and u are still… Read more »

I was at this game live. I don’t know why anyone would give Montolivo a poor rating. Him, Poli, and De Jong were beasts. Poli really impressed me. I can’t wait to see more. Silvestre was awful and almost game away an unnecessary penalty at the beginning of the match. SES needs to improve improve in one on one situations. Niang was good but needs serious work in the crossing department.

Really nice performance, especially the 1st half before all the changes
1) Niang is far better than Boateng
2) 4-3-3 is far better than 4-3-1-2
3) even Allegri must see our best midfield,at the the moment is Poli, De Jong Montolivo, I don’t think we have a problem in UCL qualification as long as the two Ghanaians don’t play
