breathing milan

B & G plz get lukaku for heaven’s sake…


where can you se this match ?


i m dyin of a disease call ac milan speciallist say ma only way i can leave is by gallian n berlusconi spend on d man team

Forza Milan ^_^

I think Inzaghi starts bonera to captain the team becuase if we start who everyone wants to see who will captain? When De jong is back he should be captain on the field until Montolivio returns.


This is the first time I’ve ever seen Essien play a good game in a milan jersey, I hope I didn’t jinx it lol.. Also Diego Lopez looks a lot more comfortable between the sticks tonight


Sell Muntari Asap

Forza Milan ^_^

Goal Honda!!


Great finish by Honda after a nice cross of de sciglio – I hope we can win that, would be much needed confidence!


@Kalle, what do I click on when I open the link?

Izac seems to be holding up alright. Happy so far but scared we arnt seeing de jong, i think he might go..


No galliani would say: we have a competitive squad


even with all the criticism muntari has been fantastic he sweeped up everything juve tried


B and G pls the team is still not well dont take this match to be something special buy ooooo buy buy buy


Juventus haven’t been showing a good pre-season so I won’t be jumping on my couch for the win. But i liked Menez and Honda, they we’re aggressive and pressured the Juve defense. De Sciglio had some nice runs down his side and a assist to Honda.


Breaking news: Galliani: We can win Champions League (even if we dont are in it)


You know what winning Trofeo means – Galliani’s classic “We’re fine as we are.”


De jong on his way to man utd. Let’s pray 4 our club rather than celebrate this worthless tim trophy

I think Essien can stay as back-up for De Jong. He played a good match last night in both matches. By the inclusion of Dzemaili, Cerci and Martinez or Torres or someone else, Milan squad hopefully would be:

Abate/De Sciglio – Rami/Alex – Zapata/Bonera – Armero/Albertazzi
Poli/Cristante – De Jong/Essien – Dzemaili/Saponara
Cerci/Honda – Martinez/Pazzini – El Shaarawy/Menez

Young players: Mastour and Mastalli

Niang can be part of Cerci’s transfer, while Muntari can go or as back-up for Dzemaili and Saponara.


one major positive from this match imo is that we didn’t concede in both matches even if it was a 45mins affair………..looks like someone’s doing something differently with the defense.
