  1. Please Rino, do not use 4-3-3 with the existing squad. We do not have players with characters to play with the formation. No need to entertain with attacking and superb ball possession foitball. What the fans need is a glorious team. It doesn’t matter winning with 1 goal margin in every matches with ultra defensive performance.

    A 4-4-2 diamond formation will bring Milan back to glory. With Higgy, Bacca, Cutrone i believe rotational duo upfront is enough. Sadly to know Silvais being loaned out this season. Hope he will be back stronger when either Bacca or Higgy is declining. I also recommend to start occupying Musa as a serious competitor for DM spot. Seeing Biglia in WC2018, i knew that Banega is better than him. Sorry for Monto, i think he needs to find a new club a.s.a.p.

    Here is the formation and the roosters :
    G1: G. Donna
    G2: Reina
    RB1: Calabria
    RB2: Conti
    CB-R1: Caldara
    CB-R2: C. Zapata
    CB-L1: Romag
    CB-L2: Musa
    LB1: Rodri
    LB2: Strinic
    DM1: Musa
    DM2: Biglia
    RM1: Kessie
    RM2: Mauri
    LM1: Bona
    LM2 : Berto
    LM3 : Strinic
    AM1: Calha
    AM2 : Suso
    ST-R1 : Higuain
    ST-R2 : Suso
    ST-L1 : Bacca
    ST-L2 : Cutrone

    If only Suso improves his defensive skills and stamina, I will choose him as a starter as RM1, not Kessie. Mauri could compete with Berto and Strinic for LM2 spot. Bona could also compete with Suso for AM2 spot. With 2 strikers the productivity upfront is better than a lone striker in 4-3-3. Duo Higgy-Cutrone or Bacca-Cutrone will fear yother teams and Higgy-Bacca is our best duo in terrorizing any teams in any competition.

  2. We are in serious need of atleast 3 players… 2 Midfielders 1 Left Wing and if we can get an aditional right winger as back up that would be welcome… But all these are much needed…

  3. Please tell kessie why he feels like striker even sometimes act like messi?? Does anybody in this forum can asnwer?? Lets our strikers doing their job….

  4. Forza Milan!!! Forza Milan!!!

  5. U watched the entire game live and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with the way we played. It’s obvious that we’re missing a genuine left sided attacker and a creative midfielder when you watch us play but if and when we make those additions we’ll be definite contenders.
