Before thwt silly unnecessary red card, milan was solid. Nothing fancy, except for few tricks and neat passing from suso l, hakan, kessie and andriy, but solid nonetheless. Why would anyone commit unnecessary foul near opponents penalty box when he’s already on yellow, god only knows. One thing i do know is that milan attack will perform much better with 2 st system.

P.s. max “milan’s worst coach” allegri is kicking it while morontella, well

Unncessary foul by Calabria, wouldnt call it inexperienced – just stupid knowing he has a yellow, and an unfortunate goal. They created plenty and Donna produced good saves, but to concede like that hurts more than conceding a proper goal… We should’ve gone home with the three points… but hey if Andre would’ve thought more than trying to flick the ball with his head 1 v 1 with the keeper we would’ve been 2-0 up and this probably wuoldnt have happened. So there were some mistakes/flaws from some players, just some that stood out more. Example, Bonucci in the beginning… Read more »

Mate, there are normal humanly mistakes and there are silly red cards and own goals. Big difference.

So a silly red card isnt a humanly mistake? Or are you saying that Donna and Calabria are so good that they’re aliens? *wink*
My point being – mistakes happened that could’ve resulted in a goal but they didnt. The way they eventually scored was lucky for them, unlucky/unfortunate for us.

No no, i mean misplacing passes or mistiming tackles are common and fairly harmless but tackling from behind 70m from ur own goal when ur already on a yellow and scoring own goal arent. I mean, hell, i know donna and cala are primavera graduates but damn

To be fair, it was a mistimed tackle from him because he wanted to get the ball, it wasn’t a “cynical” foul to prevent an attack, so he gets a pass by your logic, right? because it’s a humanly mistake

No no, there is mistiming tackle in harmless sort of way and there is mistiming tackles from behind 70m away from ur own goal when ur already on yellow. The former is akin to bringing water pistol to school and start blasting when ur teacher is standing in from of the class, its annoying, unnecessary and stupid but its harmless. The latter is akin to bringing REAL gun to school and start blasting. U and everybody around u is in big trouble even if u miss all ur aim. Its not humanly mistake meaning no sane human being would even… Read more »

Typical and so predictable from you guys. Win three games praise gattuso players are doing well. Tie a game against udinese who have had the most points in the past 10 games only behind juve and napoli and all of a sudden back tk sell all the players and coach. They got a stupid red and players are tired after how many games this past two weeks. It’s not a bad result.

the anger comes from the little hope everyone has of catching inter for a champions league spot due to their dire form recently,and to be sincere dude if not for that silly red card we should have won this.

Calabria should start at the right while Antonelli holds left-back position. So many times he was caught on a wrong foot. But well, these things happen and Udinese is a dangerous team to make mistakes against.
I am really glad that Gattuso gave some minutes to A. Sliva, he seemed lost in first minutes but than he started playing with a team and link some really nice passes.
Pitty is that we would come closer to Inter if we won this one.
Anyway FORZA MILAN!

Gattuso lacks experience. We could all see the energy level dropping at about 55mins and he couldn’t do anything about it. There was no physical presence in the mid-field as kessie,bona and cahnag were all tired. He should have also started calabria on the right and Antonelli on the left. In all I think he should go to a smaller club at the end of the season. He can work is way up to be a top notch coach. He insisted the team is fine as it where yet he plays kessie in every match, he should have simply requested… Read more »

I am still positive, we are unbeaten in 2018, 7 out of 9 points in Serie A. Next games will give us more points

Not a bad game. A little bit static though! I dont like to say that but milan attack is more fluid with kalinic and probably more dangerous with Cutrone. I wish Kalinic find his form soon so we can have two solid strikers till the season ends and maybe we can try silva on the wings to reduce the pressure. I believe he performs better in free spaces. By the way Mastour is really trying on trainings. Please give him another shot. In games that we are winning he could be a great sub And final point. Luca is a… Read more »

Milan did very well overall even though we could have taken the 3 pts back home even not for the avoidable mistakes. The team has improved a lot as it is becoming more compact evru game

Second half was unacceptable their build up in final third was non existent

They again stutter when they are in position to climb the table significantly

Precious points lost but nevertheless, forza Milan

Yeah, I was surprised by Gatusso’s comments saying this was our best performance yet. I know coaches can say whatever to the press, but it seemed to me like he meant it.

In reply to SHEVA comment,A,Silva caused us what happened today,supposing it was cutrone dat played as CF dere would have been more goals!!!Silva is sluggish,d he doesn’t have the strength and stamina for serie A games and defenders,kalinic is strong but he will want to control every pass crossed to him before determining where to play it and before he could do that,d ball is cleared off!!!so d only striker we

Sooo it is A. Silva’s fault that we lost today? I love Cutro but he is not Vieri yet and players that never played in italy need time to adapt. Cahanoglu just now is showing sparks of his talent. Saying Silva was bad today is ok, but blaming him for loss… so say no to drugs, please!

yeah we good until ball shoukd give to strikers… so many player selfish in milan.. when they should gave passing, they rather kick stupid ball…

look at kessie, what the hell he take’s all position… thats why he get tired at second half… and look carefully kessie and biglia late to cover defense when udinese get scored…

what the hell they think… with 10 players they should backup defense….

and guess what kessie gave good crossing in 90th minute… this is he shoukd do…

What the hell they think!? Kessie is probably tired of playing every single game this season! We sold Kucka so stupidly!

I am glad with the result. Milan could win the game. Hope can get 3 points for the next game.
I do hope Rino gives Musa an opportunity to explore his skills as a DM and gives Biglia some times on the bench to recover his fitness.
My suggestion to Rino to try 4-4-2 diamond with Calhanoglu as an AM behind the strikers.
Hope Suso could play well side by side with Kalinic, Cutrone or Silva.

Kudos to gattuso,I really feel ur impact in the players!!but please let kalinic and Silva rest for seria A games,u can be starting Dem during Europa league and when facing teams like Benevento and others coz you’ve given Dem enough opportunity to prove themselves but nothing positive is coming from Dem both!!!Silva is too sluggish,slow and fragile with the ball,kalinic is strong but senseless with lack determination on what to do with balls crossed either from suso,Calabria/abate and others,he doesn’t disturb not to talk of frustrating defenders,but whenever p.cutrone played even our shots on targets proved that dere is a… Read more »
