If Milan want finish in top 6 (Top 3 is almost impossible now), they should sack Allegri and hire Marcelo Biesla for rest of the season.


the truth is’ kaka had a bad game and ill single out poli for serious critisicm he failed to support desciglo so many times when nagamoto attacked meanwhile saponara wasnt that good


If you think we fans knows nothing about football, is someone like Boban that lived football too doesn’t know what is saying. It has never been this worse in Milan since we were relegated years back. Is Galiani getting something from Allegri’s salary? Barbara only critized Galiani for his blunders and the stupid man started saying how his reputation was damaged. Galiani should leave Milan asap before he does futher damage.


Chris Milan Robinho is for Milan and not Matri OMG!
Are u listening what are u saying?
Robinho has scored once in UCHL and twice in league while Matri has scored only once!wtf
Hes not even for a sub…he cant gain possesion
and hes only running and running all the time!

Pa ibra

that muntari was completely tired at around 70 mins and hardly clossed down spaces whilst a fresh cristante sitting on the bench. even introducing nocerino for some tired legs in midfield could be understandable – mazzari did that and you could see the deference afterwards… but no… allegri was waiting for those muntari moments when he could snatch 1 deflected goal at the death. sadly it backfires with inter gettin the goal and muntari the red. galliani nightmare continues.


If i were Allegri i would stand down after this game it is f… embarrassing

Milan fan

The worst Milan team,EVER.

Saponara had a shocker of a match along with kaka and poli. We can clearly see kaka has past his prime, poli is avarage at best, and saponara is not Milan material. With all the possession balotelli had received a single pass from midfield in the entire match. This is a HARD truth. These players can and will hide under allegri for now but there is a reason they have not succeeded in their previous clubs.


I can feel your frustration but make fair comment irrespective of the result. Kaka no doubt had an average game and Saponara was good in first half despite having his debute in such a very big game as a starter. ONE BAD GAME AND EVERYTHING GOES DEAD?

Talk with fairness pls!


” they have not succeeded in their previous clubs. ”

What do you exactly mean? The reason the players were bought from their previous clubs is they played well there. I can agree about Kaka, but I believe he can still give so much to this club.

I was so happy to see Saponara playing. Allegri put him in a difficult position when Saponara had to make his debut in such a big game.


I’m not so sure you are right. Kaka has shown us that he still has it and Saponara is a quality talent!

The problem is definitely Allegri. It just seems that every time the team plays they have to tactical guidance from Allegri as to how they need to play the ball!

It’s as if Allegri just picks the team and let them get on the field and play! Literally leavcing it on the players to make it happen!


Anyhow,, anyway… Forza Milan!


“@Forza1899Milan December 23rd, 2013 on 12:46 am Milan should really put all their eggs in the Champions League basket. Winning the Champions League is the only way we are going to qualify. There’s no way to redeem this season. A loss is a bit unjust. Both teams were even. Sucks we didn’t get at least 1 point.” Yeah, you’re so right! Because the squad that couldn’t even beat Inter, will beat Bayern, Barca, Madrid, Dortmund, City, etc. Are you that delusional? We’re simply terrible at the moment and having a coach who is a complete donkey doesn’t make things any… Read more »


Also, if Iker Casillas is serious about considering a move to Milan, Milan should scoop him up. The Roma fixture proved that Gabriel is not ready for the #1 spot, and with Abbiati considering retirement, I think Casillas would be an awesome transfer.

And still Cristiano Ronaldo of managers hasn’t fired Allegri…
