I think it would be fun for all of us to share opinions and reactions during match!
Hear from you.
Here we go again……..
Poli over suso and van ginkel again. Anyway….goodluck boys! But i think suso deserves a start for us to know who he really is.
The back 4 are all good in the air but can we stop having threats in set pieces??This is a question Tasotti needs to give the answer. This squad is good domestically but its a shame it isn’t managed properly by the coach. How are they going to perform today? Are they going to make us happy and give us hope today? Are we to hear the same excuses as per week by Lord Inzaghi? This match will be tough even though we are playing at home. Goodluck to the lads,expecting Destro’s goal and Honda’s start of season form with… Read more »
I dont underatand honda an bomaventura as starters and cerci and susso on the bench
Any good streams guys?
Suso, cerci, mvg>poli, jack honda…but still…
I watched 10 minutes then i changed the channel Empoli dominated them i know this game will end in a draw Milan have now gone from a midtable team to a bottom team
u r right
Νο team cohesion,no teamwork,no stability…4players back,destro upfront alone and the others nowhere…only diego lopez play for this team
Menez iza beast!
I knew Destro’s goal would come so soon.
But Inzaghi’s tactics is shit.
honda is the most overrated player i ve ever seen playing in milan. he is really an awful flop slow player with no core. he really did nothing to play. he does not deserve to play in milan or wear number 10. de jong took to much responsibility that exeeds his quality and ability. he is not a quality player even defensively.
Sub Cerci for Honda soon
Suso for Jack later.
This midfield is a big joke! Destro got his first pass in the 40th minute which resulted to our first goal. Honda and poli should be subbed.defense is intact thanks to paletta.
inzaghi are you pleased with our first half performance ?4-4-2 formation is lifeless….no creativity and menez attitude is all wrong for the game. he thinks he is messi or ronaldo. just play a 4-2-3-1 formation and bench honda because he adds nothing to our play. unlike cerci lacks pace and cannot even tke on one defender. substitute honda for suso to inject pace into the game and let play a pressing game because it appears we are not focus and not ready to win the match unlike empoli. inzaghi still clueless. you should hqve been able to notice this and… Read more »
i tink milan will win dis match despite their playin style b sincere kan we still quqlify 4 ucl
If your paying attention, it should b obvious, NDJ is great. Poli, poli has heart, i understand y pippo likes him…hes mediocre, but mediocre +heart =gattuso=Inzaghi.
milan will win d match guys kan we still qualify 4 ucl
Enough negativity. ..its the middle of the game…just win…period. …forza Milan…pippo sucks,but forzapippo, poli sucks, but forza poli, just win…period….forza milan.
Empolis LB is good…dont know who he is,but hes good.
Just give Inzaghi the axe and put him out of his misery already.
Still a legend, still we love him, but just end this!
this is why he would always scream and run but look like he still did not see it..
just excange cerci for honda and suso for menez..
why would anyone wait to use his last two excange players untill 80 minute..
patience taience and love for the colours
Suso…di Molfetta (sp)? Cmon pippo…make a substitution.
Honda should be released. He is awful
Do you have a personal thing against him? Cause it’s the only thing you’re commenting on. Honda this and Honda that … Allright man we get it he’s playing terribly but he’s hardly our worst performer.
Because he is really a terrible player! He should not play anymore. But with the terrible inzaghi he is always a starter!
Inzaghi should leave.
Tassotti should take the responsibility
Can it get any worse than this…??? Where are those Inzaghi faithfuls…???
Inzaghi was dum to start Honda ahead of Cerci ,Honda is slow and gives the ball always easily ,inzaghi then brings on Cerci in the 80th minute really?inzaghi shud start packing fast
Good job diego…win or loose. …good job.
We doomed lopez sent off …….Real disaster
We doomed? Dude it was his own mistake. Terrible pass/shot or whatever it was from him… At least he recovered his mistake.
hehe 9 players?
milan looks like the italian monty phyton
inzaghi is a f**l
Just one win in eight games. Give me a break!
Like or dislike my comments, either way, my daughter and i had fun watching the game with u guys…
We play with heart…but with no proper guidance. ..
Whats wrong with this team???? OMG another draw match…
Berlusconi and Galliani have to bow their heads in shame for the way they treated Seedorf….now who is laughing now?
I told you guys that it would be a draw… I dont know about you but i am done with this club until Berlusconi has sold the club and taken Kojak and Inzaghi with him this team has killed my joy of watching football
What happened to us winning all the remaining matches? We can’t beat empoli at our own ground.
so bad, excuses everywhere. talking about identity en young italian squad… I dont want young italian players i want quality, it doesn’t matter if their young or old, italian or dutch. Our best players in the last years were not Italian, Ibra, T. Silva, Kaka, Sheva, de Jong. Inzagi must leave he has no idea how to play the game and he doesn’t have the character to make this Milan work. Diego Simeone is my number 1 choice but we’ll need to pay for him, get quality players not young mediocre players. why still the 4-3-3?? it does not work!… Read more »
Again..you go to war with the army you have not what you want. It seems there is no combination from the current squad that is getting it done. The D is leaky and midfield not creative so forwards are ineffective. Coach needs management to get some true world class players in their prime period!!!! Till then we can all choose to talk ish about the players we don’t like that are starting or blame the coaches selection. I think there is no magic line up even for all yall arm chair coaches!
Okay…! So that’s it.. Another wasted 90 minutes in my life…. Got to start adding those minutes up. Empoli were far better and deserved a win. Pity Lopez… Inzaghi really makes Honda look bad. Why in the world wouldn’t he try the 4-2-3-1 and play Honda in his best and most preferred position. Inzaghi isn’t learning, you can’t keep repeating same mistakes and expect a different result. Just look at the match statistics, you would think we played against Juventus. And to think we played at home, that was really DEMEANING..!
we should sell this club to some Arabs just like man city,PSG,monaco etc
When an Empoli player shoots the ball into his own face, and gets a free kick, then you know everything is against you. Valeri is a joke, always has been, but he is constantly our referee… Anyways. Dont know how this is happening and whats wrong, but its really hard to cops with all the injuries…two more players out now…of course its hard to perform when there is no consistency and different players every week. We have to work more on the foundation of our team, and have a proper game plan and vision, because it looks like we dont… Read more »
With that speech you could’ve gone to the post match confrence instead of Inzaghi.
why we sign suso? coz he is free??
When ever I see poli in the line up I know we will draw at best. Poli in the line up means inzaghi still have no clue what hes doing.
I think Berlusconi may want to reconsider his words regarding not swapping the team for any other. I would swap the whole defense for a world class CB and a talented youngster. The whole midfield excluding ndj for Khedira and witzel.
do This team actually have team work training ?
They cant even exchanging passes more than 4 time.
No playmaker what so ever. No game play. Selfish. Short corner without plan. No threat
Clueless play lead to errors.
Everything seems to againts us…
To be honest inzaghi has been consistent! consistently he has been giving us bad results: results like this have become normal. there really is no light at the end of this tunnel, not even a candle.
