I love the way in the post-match interviews Wenger and his players “haven’t see the penalty yet.” But if a Milan player had dived and won a penalty then of course they’d have seen “a clear dive.” I doubt we’d have won even if they hadn’t got it but that’s not the point.


this is a conspiracy on the swedish refs !milan should F:::ing refeery this is embarasing we should have 2 penaltys if the referee gave them that silly penalty !Milan played well and we attacked wery nice silva cutrone and suso had great chanses even kalinic but he missed !the reffere f;;d the game !!we will go for thee 4th placeforza rossoneri


Hey question:
Since we are playing Juventus in the Cops final, are we qualified for Europe already?


They changed that rule that if the coppa italia winner qualified for CL, the losing finalist will get the EL ticket. Now it’s so that in the scenario above, the EL ticket goes to the 7th spot. Since Juve is guaranteed to go into CL next season the 7th spot is EL also for sure. So if Milan ends up 7th even they will be in Europe again yes.


Does anyone has opinion about Silva’s performance ? He played for 90 minutes. Can we count on him ?


I am curious, what formation will be used against chievo due to high performance from Calha as left midfielder


It’s is reported that Gattuso will go back to his normal starting lineup and formation. 433. Calabria Biglia, Bonaventura and Kalinic all making the starting eleven.


Thank you. Let’ see


Clear this team from SHIT..

bonaventura, mauri, biglia, kessie, monty ,kalinic, zapata, silva, borini…

We need to buy CREATIVE and FAST players.. players with PACE.. P A C E… do you know what that is?

P A C E = fast players! Allegri deported every single fast player… allegri was AGAINST pace and creativity.. and galliani helped him…

Dinho out.. why? He was to creative.. pirlo out..why? he was to creative.. pato out? why because he was fast..boateng out.. why? because he was better han montolvio.. it all started with allegri he is the MAIN cause for milan problems


Dude, I’ve left you alone. But seriously you’re clueless. You bash us fans that we have a small mentality and you look to the past. Get a grip, this isn’t the past no more. No team in this world had a team like we did in the past so stop. You get annoying
