this XI is good to make top 10.
Forza milan


Honestly hopeing that adriano smashes it in this game. Believe he has got a lot of potential and can offer something different to milan when going forward compared to bakka [yes bakka is better, but i would like to see more of adriano].
Also would love to see how Sosa Suso and Niang link up in this game. Personally I believe they are the heart of the Milan team. Anything good or creative will involve them, and usually Bakka will be the one who executes their hard work in to a goal.


it’s bacca

Excited to at last see Vangioni, Sosa Lapadula, and after a long while Ely as well in the starting XI, let’s see how this team performs without Montolivo!


Pasalic and Sosa click well, Pasalic is really surprising me


More like a 4231 with Suso playing CAM


Really nice pass from pasalic, too bad niang waste it


Adriano sucks.. sosa doesn’t click to his new position yet.. but abate is really fit with the armband.. the midfield need to play more together.. our possession is waay below bournemouth’s. Gabriel’s decision making needs more practice.. but good goalkeeper quality is there.. Suso has what it takes to be world class.. pasalic surprises me.. should have slot him into first team.. and buy him from cfc.. if jack can play as regista, then definitely midfield trio would be pasalic, jack, and kucka.


So over niang


Suso scores…. Milan 1-0 up


Paletta play like Bonera, Vangioni looks good


From what I saw, I think La Ferrera has amazing potential.
He’s really good on the ball


Sosa looked great in the regista role. It was probably not a bournemouth at full strength but he looked super composed with the ball. I still think Montolivos defensive game is better, but Sosa’s composure was great to see. Its hard to say anything about Lapadula, didnt get much to work with but he looked strong, a physical player. Pasalic was allright. Vangioni didnt really impress me… typical south american defending – Im talking about their leagues – rash in their decision making, which often doesnt pay off, Bournemouth probably should’ve gotten a penalty as well… I dont think he… Read more »


Lapadula played well???


Nice match. La ferrara was really good. Plizarri is good in distributing balls.pasalic suso and Sosa gives me confidence we can be in a good position before January. Zanelato is also our future. Montela’s work is already showing in the team. Forza Milan


Yeah totally, La Ferrara was a big surprise, he can really be something extra if given the chance! Plizzarri also managed a great save. Impressed me more than Gabriel has done in his years with us…
I wonder if Zanellato is better than Locatelli? Or if he is more mature in his game, it feels like it, but he has only played in friendlies…

Pa ibra

I have a feeling Niang will flop this season unfortunately


Happy to see Vangioni in this match….he’s really good and have more passion in his role….he’s much better than MDS….MDS too slow…..Vangioni for next Match….Forza Milan!!!


Must admit that Chelsea FC has better scout than Milan. Look at van Ginkel and Pasalic. Sad to see Cristante and El Sha left the club. What a clever Galliani, the great transfer guru.


Chelsea has one of the best scouts out there for youth. Just look at all the players they have loaned out, more than half of them have the potential to be something special.


vangioni good, niang has skills but he seems to want to take on the whole opposition, he can run n dribble but his final balls are childish and he’ll get injured easily. Pasalic a great ball passer, ely a bit shaky, sosa yet to get into full flight! suso a bright light, abate a worthy captain! i think I agree with montella that these players can do more and achieve greater things with a little bit of more self believe….Forza milan

Mr mark

Didn’t watch it


With what I have seen today pasalic is definitely a good player and captain monto must be ready to sit on the bench if he doesn’t improve.nice work montela


+233 26 334 8336 Yhes dats ma numba 4 de what’s app grup, by de way hw was team can ani 1 tell me hw my Milan played against Bournemouth???


La Ferrara, Suso, Rodrigo Ely, Niccolò Zanellato, Gabriel, M’Baye Niang, Alessandro Plizzari have a bright future and If Milan wouldn’t sell any of them, then In my estimation, i think Milan would be back. Vangioni, Palleta were great.

Who is La Ferrara?
