Gabriel has a great potential, but him needs to be better prepared psychologically. GK need confidence and tranquility, in other words, experience. He committed no technical errors, the mistakes were psychological. De Sciglio also did not play well.
It was not so bad. This game showed that Milan need to play with angry.
Almost symbolic how the team showed intensity, and almost made a comeback after allegri Was sent off.
zapata and emmanuelson really suprised in this game, i still think this team can do good but with at new coach..
Terrible squad,terrible,coach,terrible president and general manager. The team,A.C. Milan and his fans don’t deserve this.
Emanuelson was really amazing, so were De Sigl and Zapata. Lets hope Emanuelson gets recovered for the Derby.
Muntari? I think he should be playing second halfs fir 10 to 15 mnts maximum. His passes are very disturbing, though thanks fir the Goal.
Matri!!!!!!!!! He is the Saddest story ever. I feel bad for him. Selecting him was a joke.
Muntari + Allegri… much more worse of a love story than twilight..
I know Gabriel made a mistake to give up that penalty but he is a good talent and he’s not like Courtois, or Der Stergen. With young players you gotta let them make mistakes, its part of their developments. And in games like this Gabriel has to learn on the job same goes for players like Cristante, Saponara, and Vergara. They’re young these mistakes are necesary to learn from in order to become a top player and allegri acts like we’ll be losing so much if we play youngsters…were already dropping points what difference does it make…
I won’t give Gaby the stick now, he’s young an inexperienced for this Milan in transition. Allegri could see Emmanuelson doing great at LB and should ask himself why he has refused to play him there over the years. 2 clear penalties denied for Milan, Roma are lucky.
Milan were absolutely awful today just like nigh on every game this season. When teams like Roma and Ajax create chances it’s thorough good, patient build-up play. Milan just create chances by luck, when we have the ball there is literally no midfield, it’s just defense to Kaka or Balo. Kaka is a box-to-box attacking midfielder and now we have him as our second most forward player. Today’s reprehensible formation (a 4-5-1 with no wide players…wow) and team selection also forces Balotelli out wide so there’s no-one in the middle. Did anyone notice Montolivo was playing exactly where he always… Read more »
@Greg..Totally agree! Hopefully Milan realize we need a new coach in Jan. If they dont, the team will continue to under perform and look clueless as usual!
allegri is garbage
tassoti > allegri, when allegri left the pitch milan played better, we will win the derby with tassoti motivating the players!
Allegri favorite result = DRAW !!
We were very good in the second half ..
Gabrie? am not sure about him .there.is many young goalkeepers who wouldnt make that kind of mistakes ..
For me Munta ,Kaka,Emanu ,Bonera was the best tonight
i think de gab isnt ready to play as th firts choice goalkeeper or at least jn milan we should lo an him
For me Gabriel giving away the penalty was just a mistake that he needs to learn from, but him punching emanuelson was very bad cuz thats not the first time this season that has happened. And it could have cost us the tie b/c zaccardo was very very bad for the few min he was in. The whole game not much was happening on our side cuz urby was doing well. However, I agree that he should be loaned somewhere where he’ll be a starter. This way we can get a good keeper and then when abbiati retires, Gabriel can… Read more »
they want to give 50 % niang to parolo is best they try get 50% of perin instead yes and swap matri for machetti in jan lets deal with the cl
i feel sorry for cristante because he is really a good player. he is better than anyone playing in our midfield except montolivo. he should play in the left side of midfield with montolivo in front of defence, poli at the right. we should get jorginho from veronna.
i know de jong is working hard, but montolivo does not play well because de jong is playing in his place, in front of defence. in most of matches we don’t need de jong. he is only a defensive player.
so many ignorant ppl here. Monto is good but I will never consider him a captain. what does he do? pass the ball? boateng could have done that. Montos crosses never converts to goal either. Dejong is so much better than montolivo in all aspects. He recover balls, he can shoot, he can pass, he can hold the ball, he wins the air and much more. De Jong > Montolivo although I would go for 4 2 3 1 formation abate- zapata/rami – mexes/rami – de sciglio Montolivo – De Jong Honda – kaká – Shaarawy/Robinho Balotelli Bench: Emanuelson, poli,pazzini,saponara,… Read more »
You would maybe get 20m for muntari, constant, BIRSA!! MATRI! nocerino, zaccardo, Mexes, robinho all combined but not a penny more…
Yeah I’d say Muntari about 2m Birsa 500k Constant 1m Matri 8m Nocerino 2m Mexes 5m Robinho 7m
40 million for Muntari, Constant, Birsa, Matri, Nocerino, Zaccardo and Silvestre, are you joking. We’ll also be lucky to get 15 million for Mexes and Robinho. All of them combined together might get us 40 at most, but that will not be spent on transfers.
Milan wasted lots of money
Anyone heard about this D’Ambrosio transfer. Abate could be on his way out. Hardly gonna be an improvement!
Some people here are ignorant and they think they are playing manager mode or FUT on FIFA. Even though we have some horrible players, i believe we still have a pretty good squad. In other for AC Milan to perform, Allegri need to leave. His player/tactical selection are horrible. After he was sent off, we played pretty nice.
Nd zapata performed well cos a scout from man u was watchin him…wat a joke
We are suffering 4rm allegri’s all defence tactis
So Milan are acquiring Rami and Honda to the squad, and who else??
