Highlights: Milan 3-1 Lazio


MILAN WON on Filippo Inzaghi’s debut as a first team coach and it was a very exciting game against Lazio at Stadio San Siro on Sunday evening. Milan played good football in the first half and already after 8 minute, Stephan El Shaarawy completed an incredible run and then found Keisuke Honda in the box; the Japanese comfortably beat Etrit Berisha to make it 1-0. The Rossoneri were solid defensively and even though Lazio had more of the ball in the second half and tried to create more chances, Milan managed to score again as Sulley Muntari was at the end of a great Ignazio Abate cross in the 56′ minute. New signing Jeremy Menez got on the scoresheet in the 64′ minute after winning and converting a penalty. Another new signing found the net but unfortunately for Alex, who was very good in the air, he scored an own goal in the 66′ minute. Lazio pushed very hard to score more but Inzaghi’s side was very disciplined and didn’t allow Lazio much. In the 93′ minute, Antonio Candreva got a penalty but a new signing was the hero again as Diego Lopez saved from the spot on his debut. Positive game for Milan in front of Galliani, Barbara & Silvio Berlusconi.

Great! Forza milan ! Long time no see like this game. Our family will be back soon.


Balotelli played a good match without diving, yellow/red card and frustration. And Liverpool won.

Milan won their opening! Many improvements!

Could they day be better?


to muntari haters, muntari is ball winning, not playmaker..de jong is anchor, so we need creative midfielder..we can use honda as playmaker, menez as RW..


Muntari-de jong-Honda


note; POLI is useless


El Shaarawy is almost like having a new signing, it’s great to see him flying down the wing and cutting inside, and what a run and cross for our first goal, the cross was almost on a plate for Honda who had to do a bit of work to knock it in but was a great finish, not to get carried away by any means as there’s a lot of games to go but I really feel it was imperative for us to win today as defeat would of killed the players confidence but I genuinely have a feeling of… Read more »


I Really Hope Galliani Will Get Taabrat Before The Window Closed..

Sorry guys I was one of those ppl who doubted our team and Inzaghi I must admit but after I watched the game I believe. Elsha is going explode this season.


you are a real fan, forza milan!

Diego Lopez and De Jong were amazing today. Forza Milan.
Meanwhile Atletico have signed Cerci. And we are getting Van Ginkel apparently.


Looking good guys, looking positive. Van Ginkel will come in, makes us more solid. A winger maybe but in all honesty its not really needed. I celebrated Lopez’s penalty save like a goal because he deserves some confidence and we need a proper keeper


Good start but we still need more signings especially in midfield,
I think SES- Torres- Menez should be the front three, and honda the playmaker behind them


El Sharaawry was awesome & there was an improvement in their attitude towards the match. By the grace of God this will be a special season for us.


We need van ginkel or rabiot and a winger.


Fair winning demostration, solid defense, didn´t like menez’s diving it’s like seeing mario again, but created a lot of space for el92 and honda. el92 was great, like I said previosly muntari does the job, essien is useless, armero it’s a great speedster, overall this is a mayor display for Pippo, in my opinion they worked together like a team BRAVO Inzaghi! Great Job FORZA MILAN
Where is @sheva and all others muntari-bonera hater?


Good game good result,……. Milan don’t need taraabt honestly he will not play with the team,…… I will love to see saponara staying, but I want him to see more playing but, if there is full assurance that he will have more playing time at empoli to build himself up in serial a……… please let him go, but never sell him out. but let me warn u on Van Ginkel his rough and can’t stand pressure…. he can cause some damage when u don’t expect…… red card for him is very sure. but his Ok if e come, I will… Read more »


Where are the haters who spent the last month insulting our team in the blog?? I am not hearing you guys.. don’t worry you can say sorry and will forgive you .. !!t


Muntari is better than Poli,Poli is useless,any doubt?


Am I the only one who thinks Lazio’s gameplay which led to the own-goal was magnificent?


Great match though. Forza Milan. I just hope we continue to get positive results and stay in the top 5 positions.

Forza Milan!


A good start for promising season….From the start…I like Lopez arrival…what a solid gk…Solid rock from Alex and Zapata….SES will be better than Di Maria…Honda start to show his class…Menez also slicing the opponent defence….Good assist from Abate…Muntari always present in the right place…But still need improvement…we should cut their ball in the middle..so another play like Lazio did for their goal…never happen again…forza Milan…


Good attitude and great result.. However, De Jong MUST STAY no matter the money Man U may offer.
Congrats to Pippo for remarkable debut.


Van Ginkel officially joins and Biabiani is on his way, I think we can really challenge for high this season for sure

uslar ses

Great result….forza pippo,MILAN played well today,el92 is a beast,he run up and down and creates many chances,I think MILAN will show their real spirit this season…but plz get taarabt,now that we have van ginkel, we re good to go


I am not a fan of muntari, there’s no denying previously he has always given the possession away and ruined our attacks and wreckless dove into challenges. BUTTTTTT I give credit where credit is due and these last couple of performances by muntari under inzaghi have been really solid. Now the rest of the team played well I still don’t like honda on the wing but he’s obviously really worked hard adapting to the position and he’s made it work so far. Also, putting bonera as left back was a big mistake, what a mismatch against candreva in the beginning.… Read more »

Forza Milan..Superb..!! Biabiany and Van Ginkel good for Milan..Van Ginkel more creative midfielder and good passing..


Milan are in talks with Parma over Biabiany.Milan wants to offer Zaccardo while Parma wants Niang.If the later eventually goes to Parma,then the next match away to Parma,Biabiany will be facing Parma and Niang facing Milan.But i would rather see Zaccardo at Parma,we need Niang to stay to keep up our pacey and deadly wingers that would destroy any defence.I would suggest giving them Zaccardo and Pazzini.
SES,Niang,Biabiany,Menez,Mastour,Armero and Abate in the wings is a good attack.


Give them Pazzini and Zaccardo so that by January we either bring back Petagna or buy a younger striker as El Nino’s back up option,while using Menez as El Nino’s back up for now,though as a false 9 just like Robinho de Souza against Barcelona last season.


We tried,@Least am glad we won our first match and we’e leading the Table, but let’s remember that even with 5 man defense that we had Lazio was too Deadly…My question is Must bonera play?


Race for scudeto
Forza milan !!!!


Biabiany heading to Milan and zacardo is out.. now I am truly happy


Galliani as usual has hit three last minutes deals (Torres, Ginkil, and Biabiany) for who still don’t believe that he is the master of transfer market please moan somewhere else.who
The cost of this market is almost nothing compared to what other clubs have spent.. I am satisfied.


Offliner. That’s a steal of a deal. Galliani has that ability to convince at last minute. Is nigel de Jong staying?


yes New team
