In the end it’s the right choice to nurture locatelli and not throw him in to start against the reigning champions and strongest team in Italy by far. Also I find it messed up gallianis words put a lot of pressure on balotelli. He gets a rare start against the best team and is pressured to prove himself at Milan. Mario should be used to pressure and scrutiny so I hope he does well for Milan and himself.

I hope we extend Alex’s contract. Even if he’s a backup next season his experience defensively is so needed next to romagnoli. Good strong header with great delivery by balotelli. 1-0

Alex at open space with a header on corner, at the same i feel more safe with him with him in defence. But we wont keep the lead (hope im wrong)

We are playing okay, but Bacca and Monti need to get more involved. Also Bacca and Mario need to introduce themselves to each other. Finally, Mario deserves some credit, ive seen him perform better, but today he is playing with the right attitude.

we are playing well but alex needs to be careful with all those fouls on Morata. no chemistry between Bacca and Balo. Balotelli is doing good and bad, whenever he has tried to keep it simple he looks great but then he tries something fancy and loses the ball cheaply. Bacca has been poor with his touches so far. Bonaventura needs to pass a bit earlier, he is playing like Menez now. We really look a different team when we have Alex-Roma and Monty-Kucka pairing.

These mo…. fu…. midfielders cannot play more than a half. All of them. The second the team conceed a goal thats it for them they give up. Instead of replacing attackers who runs to burn their ass bcz of these shitty midfielders. All of them and no exception, specially who keep defending montoshit and bonashit turtles. If you cannot defend and run back when u lose a ball dont attack bcz even when u attack u r useless with no creativity. Lose against any1 but not to juve u f… shit players worth nothing. They gonna cause us heart attack.

Bacca never gets subbed off no clue why terrible management when he was not involved at all and when he was it was him failing a pass. who would sub off balotelli and not bacca when balotelli was actually getting involved

Good game. Unlucky. Our team even after all these games, and no europe still cannot play with intensity for full 90 mins. Donarumma was good. Abate was okay. Antonelli was ok. alex was super. Romagnoli was good except on that equaliser and when zaza ripped him apart with super skills. Monty was good. Kucka faded in second half, otherwise good. Bonaventura was poor. Honda fought well. Balotelli overall did well, now we have to see if he can keep this going. He should have buried that rebound though. Bacca was poor. Miha was poor for me. He set the team… Read more »

The team is badly built,too many average and weak minded players in the team. I don’t blame the coach,good players make a good coach.Galliani has to retire

I think this team dont practice how to keep possession in training. They dont even open themselves for a pass from a teammate in possession. This is not because Juve are strong. . I saw Empoli giving them more troubles than Milan and we have better players than Empoli. I know bunch of affordable coaches who can make these players play better and archive better result. ‘theyr not Milan material’ shouldn’t be the main excuse for losing to lesser players at Sassualo.

Am very serious. Acerbi now an Italy international was not so good in Milan. Sassuolo would be dying to even have the likes of Suso and Mauri in their team trust me.Thing is, everyone play to their almost potential in these teams which in recent years only happened at Milan with seedorf.

They do not specially the midfielders who are the ones should earn fouls under pressure. But the 2nd rivals put pressure on them, they make mistakes and lose the ball immediately or they kick it out. Like they holding a bomb about to explode.

Played well first half but died completely in the second. Almost as if they planned to keep it at a draw but it was unfortunate for us. To be fair Monti did his job fairly but later on it was clear he was out and yet he refused to go, even if you are the captain some times you have to put your team first before your ego. Another problem was Bona and Honda were ineffective. Bona needs to sleep for like 3 days straight because fatigue has taken a heavy toll on him. But sometimes you really gotta question… Read more »

Do anyone know what happened to locatelli. He was ready to get on and then it seemed like Motolivo refused to go off. anyone ?

Miha thought Monty was feeling pain and thought of subbing him with loca but Monty said he was ready to continue. Actually Monty was playing well.

I felt that if balotelli didn’t use his hand it would have been an own goal. Shame

Locatelli was ready but miha allowed Monty to rule him. Y can’t miha learn ? Y can’t Milan learn ? This is y Italian league can’t get better. Ik we aren’t rich but if take Halilovic, Januzaj, Rabiot and kovacic on loan (With the option to buy) we must go to UCL. We’d have so much creativity in midfield. Monty, kpb, menez, Honda could leave. I just this for the rest of the season.

Milan, a sinking ship, we are now a mid table team, struggling to enter europa league, I know that we can’t defeat juventus in cup final, am 100% sure…. As for mihaj, I reserve my comment, I just know that there are a lots of coaches in the world who can bring best out of this team… Ask Leicester coach, we would have been a great under seedorf…

for the last 3 years, we has been downgrade our quality, lets be honest, take it. compare to juventus line up in other side, only romagnoli who better than rugani, rest of our squad at juve bench/subtitution squad!! we’re depend on monty too much, but the truth is monty honda bonaventura kuco abate antonelli alex inferior to juvetus. (bacca at the same level as morata n madzukic), how about our subtitution? worse!!! even juve had hernanes as subtitution. thats what miha called our limitation!! its galliani fault!! but berlusconi always defens him says that because we dont have money to… Read more »

Comment: it’s shame that the refree couldn’t see a push on abate before pogba porch the second. It was obviously foul. We played good first half but disjointed in second half.

Milan lost the game the moment Kucka got a yellow card. The lad couldn’t really take out Pogba again the way he did and from that point only Monty was doing the recoveries. Nonetheless, it was an improvement to previous 4 games as with Kucka, Milan does better more so Juve have Bufon to thank for those saves. A team badly built will always struggle for quality in depth and no surprise we are where we are today. Those who have eyes to see have said after d close of summer and winter transfer windows that this Milan is not… Read more »

I’m not sure why Locatelli didn’t come in for Montolivo, not that i am craving to see Locatelli against Juventus. But if its the case that Montolivo didn’t want to go out for Locatelli, that says alot about Montolivo in bad way. He is a disease in this team and a guy with a lot of ego. And that people bash on Miha, i don’t get it? yeah, he might be a mid-table coach mentally. But when he have to change a player who in my opinion shouldn’t be brought back (Balotelli, don’t get me wrog he played good last… Read more »

If Balo would just be trying and working like he did in this game all the time in his career,he would be a TOP 5 player in the world but he will maybe have another or 2 games like this and than he will go back to his old ways.
