Highlights: Ajax 1-1 Milan

56

LAST MINUTES aside, it was a pretty dull night of football at the Amsterdam Arena when Milan visited Ajax for the second matchday of the Champions League. The first half was very poor from Milan who did absolutely nothing in the first 45 minutes and didn’t see too much of the ball. Ajax had plenty of possession but didn’t convert it into too many scoring chances. The second half was for the most part a complete opposite with Milan controlling the tempo with Ajax taking the role of the poor side and Mario Balotelli hit the crossbar but the Rossoneri didn’t do well enough to create more chances. And then, like almost in every Milan game this season, the goals arrived late. Ajax scored first with Milan conceding yet another set piece goal in the 90′ minute as Stefano Denswil beat Ajax with a header. However, the boys of Massimiliano Allegri got saved again – the referee awarded Milan in the 94th minute a very dubious penalty which Mario scored to make 1-1 in the end. The result is fair as each team gets a point. Milan have 4 points, Ajax 1.

Another header goal, why am i not suprised. And then Galliani was all like ” I think 12 mil for Matri would improve our team more than a defender”

I hardly get a chance to watch the games these days and follow the football news and transfers, but I thought Matri was a free transfer, why do I feel like we pulled a United when they spent so much money on Bebe a few seasons ago when they could of bought Van De Vaart for a better price, why pay 12 mil for Matri when we could of put the 2 mil for Honda and try to Sign Adam Lajlic think that how you spell it, I know we needed a striker because of Pazzini but still I would… Read more »

No coach is f00l enough to play with Bonera, Urby, Constant, Noce, Muntari, Birsa etc. A new manager will demand money and transfers. That’s what keeps Allegri at the bench. Simple…

The worst I’ve seen Milan play in such a long time, especially the first half. The Christmas tree formation, perfected by Ancelloti, requires players who can hold up the ball well (Seedorf, Pirlo, Kaka etc). Not a single shot on goal in 45 mins? 25% possession?? Is this how “the most successful club in the world” plays? The great Sacchi made it very clear: To win you have to impose your style. Statistically, if you dominate possession effectively, you have a better chance of creating scoring opportunities. I was terrified that Balotelli would get another yellow card. He worked hard… Read more »

Abbiati had a pretty good game .. but we do need a defender … Everyone is saying we got Matri instead .. we might get a defender in January. Casillas is being linked to Milan and I think these may be some good defenders;

Alex (PSG)
Jageilka (Everton I Think)
Richards (City)
Mascherano (Barca) – might not be realistic but who knows
Subotic/Hummels (Borrusia)
Vidic (Man Utd – being linked with Milan too)

The thing is, we still deserved to win to be honest, except for Ajax few shots at target at the end of the match. It was clear to see, that whenever we WANTED to, and went out to attack we could easily damage them. Even with so many players out, I think there is enough quality in this “poor” Milan side, there is a so much potential, that it frustrates me to see us defend for 45 minutes, our defence isn’t the greatest but it’s not that bad either, in my eyes, it’s only behind Juve in Serie A… our… Read more »

Ajax was robbed! Milan didnt deserve to get a point. Balotelli is always looking for penalties! Pathetic!

The team was horrible…then again that was no surprise as Allegri football…well lets just say Allegri doesnt have a clue about football period.

Milan needs a total overhaul from top down to bottom..

Get rid of Galliani, Allegri and all the useless players

Every team now know they can score us through set-pieces….makes me ask what allegri and our legend tassotti are doing? Galliani makes it even worse by always defending allegri. :(…..i know we have alot of average players in our team and i still believe a good coach can turn them to super stars. See whats happening with inter now and look back when stramacioni was their coach. Allegri should go back to an average team where he belongs period! Forza milano

The first half was allegris genius idea to sit back. I don’t agree with it. They are a young team prone to make mistakes when we put at least some dam pressure on them. We let them pass the ball around as long as they wanted which let them build confidence on the ball. If you pressure, they make mistakes. Yes you can’t pressure for 90 minutes and not get tired but you can’t sit in your own half. If you pressure they are forced to boot the ball up the field and risk losing possession. I don’t get it.

Ajax was not robbed, milan was robbed of 2 clear penalties in regular time (1 clear hands, 1 clear foul on balotelli), ajax got 1 yellow card when they shouldve get at least 4 – i recall 1 clear foul and 1 very brutal foul on balotelli where they kicked him i the face after he went down and there was no free kick or card given whatsoever – and that was in front of the ajax goal. a few minutes later balo got a yellow card for a ridiculous foul – it was a clear one but what the… Read more »

Honestly speaking, I kno Montolivo just returned from injury, but I’m beginning to question him as captain. He is not living by exmple in anyway. And as for Zapata, I have absolutely no words for him! Zapata would be on the bench in milan primavera team, if I were coach.

I agree with you. Montolivo was the worst player on the field in the first half, by far. I think he lost every ball he got. The way he played was absolutely unacceptable.

Funny how things in football are relative. Guy who couldn’t get enough playing time in Torino (Birsa) is currently way better player than the Milan captain.

Must say that I didn’t like the Montolivo-captain idea from the start. Not sure if its psychological problem but he plays like SH*T since he become a captain.

Another goal from set pieces another Injury problem for Birsa, we also conceded our 11th goal in 8matches. They gave us another Penalty, Like seriously what is Monty playing now??? He’s Supposed to be our captain…I think he’s overrated…and Milan need to sack all their training coaches causes I don’t know what kinda training they do…#Rubbish

Well, I’m gonna say this to all Milan fans both the Allegri lovers and haters. For me I think Allegri is a good coach but he’s not the kind of coach Milan needs. If you are a true Milan fans and you understand the culture of Milan, you will know that Allegri is not certainly for Milan. Fine we need to buy players but our squad isn’t that bad. We have experience players that should be at the peak but I do not see Allegri factor in these players, no technicality and tactic in Allegri football, clearly he doesn’t understand… Read more »

I can’t believe it was Allegri’s plan to sitback in the first half, I mean this is Milan for crying out loud and we were playing Ajax full of youngsters. We have a terrible coach with bad ideas.

It’s no surprise that Milan have displayed such a lack of noticeable fight, drive and ambition this season. Teams are the visual representation of their managers character – Jose Mourinho’s sides are typically bullish, while Sir Alex Ferguson’s famous passion and drive is represented by United’s numerous and famous come-from-behind victories. In our Alegri’s case no intensity, no drive, no passion, no character in a nut shell this is not our Milan so sad. Just playing like a Serie B team. Enough of Allegri pls our play is so pathetic.

And Allegris commments after the match: we played a tactially smart game- this guy is something else! if we were playing Barca I could understand that we wanted to play so deep and play on counter attack, but this is a WEAK ajax team that PSV demolished a few weeks back. As soon as Milan put on the pressure after going 1-0 down we got the equalizer. Allegri is tactially, a coward and has been lucky so far. “Unfortunalty” Milan will get the result in the end- we always get the results in the end but it wont be because… Read more »

Zapata Sucks Period. Neither he can effectively challenge in the air for the ball, neither can he mark a player or close him down and to top it all he isnt good at tackling either. Its waste of 6.5 Million euros by milan. We could have gotten honda rather than this joke of a player. Allegris insistence in playing average players like Muntari and Matri (not in this match though) for Playing 90 mins is an absolute puzzler i cant comprehend. Neither can i understand his subsitution choices. He made the changes too late and completely wrong. There was no… Read more »

I don’t say Milan has alot of money but i know from the revenue this club is making, we can manage our club better. It’s Allegri who is fooling Galliani for the worst of the team right now. We got much money more than many clubs from uefa cl last season plus we just topped serie A revenue incomes. If a fellow Milanista thinks that the club doesn’t have money, I’ll correct him. Actually I don’t know which site my comments will reach Galliani but for truth, his intelligence is no more. Just considering we ignored Tevez for 10m and… Read more »
