Abate had the best match of his life, Zapata had his best game of Milan career, Alex, Donarumma and Antonelli were solid. Kucka took some time to get going, may be because of return from injury. Honda apart from the assist was not that involved, bonaventura tried hard but was clearly marked.. Bacca did not get any service but provided a brilliant clearance.. Niang was invisible except for 1 chance but missed that.. Montolivo was horrible… his worst ever game in Milan shirt… Bertolacci after coming on showed how it is done with simple passes.. Menez tried hard but still… Read more »


Actually honda wss playing like a full back


In addition honda did one of the 2 shots on goal and Pepe Reina knocked it out at the end of the match.


Comment: today this player is good tomorrow hes not,the problem is not only milan but some of u fans


Our next matches are kinda tough we have Torino,the sassualo,then lazio…with does three matches I believe we are good for the top 3


don’t understand why there’s hate for balo. he did good for the time he was on. don’t forget that he too has been gone for a long time because of injury. Groin injury is no joke and not something you can bounce back so quickly from. Menez too with his back. IT’LL HAPPEN EVERYONE. STAY CALM. WE GOT THIS. and they will be back to playing amazing soon as well. the team is great right now. only one loss in 2016. and so far any losses or bad results we had in the first half of the season have all… Read more »


Now its times to thinking about the 3 points from Torino milan forever


If only we started the season this way


whenever honda got the ball in the napoli area he looked dangerous but not involved much today in attack but in defence he snatched 4 to 5 times from the opponent. bona was involved most of the time. abate was great. if monto would have not lose possession midfield was strong enough.


anyone who don’t have faith in any current Milan player should find another club asap. Zapata was suberb


That was what we needed. Three points is nice but taking a point from the second place team on the road is a moral win. We went in and got the job done. Now to focus on Torino…

angry birds

I think draw is not bad result, unfortunately, we didn’t get our revenge, we almost get all of revenge, fiorentina inter genoa, but the brightside look at our quality player. We still left behind juve napoli roma. The most regretfully thing is the fact that we drop points from team like empoli bologna udinese verona, we should get all remaining point from weak team. Only juve and roma are forgivetable match.


Wow Zapata you proved everybody wrong. What a rock!!


I bet certain poster by the name of sheva wet himself when bonaventura scored.
Sheva loves jack so much he hates him.


only positive thing is a getting point
performance was awful…this is not milan ….there is no midfield…….only one bright moment I found….when kucka took ball and run stright forward….but then missed pass to bacca………this is football these days…..very quick forward, not like monto….all the time pass to side or back……..disaster i have to say…….we been very lucky to get a draw………but thank god for that


Juve, Sassuolo, Bologna, Lazio, Roma – these are not easy games, don’t count on winning everything.
There are 3 things we must do to get 3rd sport:
– don’t drop stupid points with all the others,
– beat the roman teams at home,
– beat those tough underdogs.

Not easy at all, this would mean to have an almost perfect second half of the season.
bonus: beat Juve!


overall solid defence.
i’m in love with kuca (he reminds me of Gattuso and Ambrosini, both, but not that good obvisioly).
Niang should comes off the bench for Honda a couple of games.
and Balotelli….he is by far one few players in our squad that are (or can be) a true worldclass player, but why NOT?
he can be the next Ibra or even better but ……. i don’t know what’s wrong? or how it can be solved
niether Mancini , Rodgers , Allegri , Conte , Miha…..


ITALIAN MILAN… Did I see how many Italians on that napoli team. One. We have like 6 starting eleven n we got out played. Berlusconi is really on something. U want Italian Milan. Go buy all the real class Italians in serie a oh n that crap one from psg lolz. Verratti hahaha then I will believe in Ur fantasy mate. Other wise I don’t wanna see borriello or Toni or a GILARDINO in Milan.


Italian Milan. Insigne. Berardi. EL shaarawy. Gabbiadini. Rugani. Berlusconi get on it. Then I will believe what u say. Just spend some damn money on a midfielder seriously I can’t watch Montolivo our captain come on man. Get real




milan is awake after years of sickness. its not easy. what needed is a terrifying midflder. at this milan is up. forza milan.


Ac Milan players did as the coach instructed them to play….. If i may say Miha our coach did not play well because he don’t want to lose the match and what he want was draw game not to win. Ac milan played defensive game yesterday. We can’t hold the ball because we don’t want to come out and play game with Nalpoli that is why they took the game from us. looking at the game how many passes came from midfield to our striker??? when nalpoli scored then we came out and how many minutes did it take us… Read more »


This match is proof of why we should get rid of Montolivo he Always chokes against Napoli he always gets isolated against them because he is so slow not just physically but mentally so he gets himself into trouble everytime he has the ball and is forced to just clear the ball to the opponent there is still alot to fix with this Milan but it does look much brighter than Before


Any milanista could tell there are big improvements in many aspects for milan under miha so if berlusconi is wise he should at least let miha works until his contract expires. But i think milan is still 3 signing away from becoming real contenders; a young solid cb (zapata, palleta, alex are good but getting old, vhergara and ely are inexperienced and underdeveloping), great playmaking cm like moutinho or pastore (who years ago confessed he wanted to go to milan), and real winger who can expand our attacking tactics and can give competition to limited ones milan have currently. Games… Read more »


Ugh, what a horrible match. Im surprised that Napoli didn’t win. Zapata and Abate were amazing, rest were kinda meh. And Montolivo was horrible.

Im trying hard to support Milan, but it’s pretty hard with matches/squad like this. We really need some quality players. Time to use some money, and im talking about actually using it, not buying free/near-free and bad players.
