After wasting my time to watch this game( and watching us with this useless tactics again), I can happily continue to scream and shout, as I have always shouted, FIRE GATTUSO NOW! If we’re hoping to go anywhere. This was the worst Milan derby I’ve witnessed us play and trust me, in Inzaghi’s Milan derby, we looked better than today. This is what happens when your opponents continue to pressurize your defense by putting in crosses every little chance the get. Even when they see only two of their teammates in the middle hoping the defense or goalie can make… Read more »

We are currently mid table with 1 game in hand. 1 win will put us in 5 position. At least we have started better then last year.

well, I can see that everyone is out shouting at others “I’d told you…”. Guys, ffs, this blog is supposed to be a friendly environment for a healthy exchange of veiws, not a freaking battlefield. I remember that before the game everyone (Expect Naz, Milan 10, and a few more including me although I never spoke of it) was telling stories of Gatusso’s great managerial skills and now the same people are calling for his head. Everyone has a right to have their point of view but please think a bit more and be a bit more consistent. If you… Read more »

Talking about having not up to task players and wait for January inforcements, well you guys are probably in for a bumpiest few seasons ahead. We all are. According to different sources Milan will have to tighten their belts really hard since Chinese scr*wed us big time and left enormous debt behind where Milan could face restrictions of acquiring players as well as limit the squad size for next or more seasons. It could well happen they will need to sell in order to balance the books. When this sh*t will kickstart and since you like to point fingers and… Read more »

I like someones comment on here that gattuso looks scared. He does and clearly is scared, remember all that fire on the touchlines when he started coaching us? Now he just looks scared, its in his eyes. And the team plays accordingly. Why not introduce laxalt on the left for hakan? Why order cutrone to stick to the left when he will be useless there? Why bakayoko? Im not saying we should fire him yet, we have to admit in the last few games before this we were playing our best football in a while, but gattuso needs to turn… Read more »

the annoying part is that how will you remove a winger and being in a Cf when we have wingers on the bench honestly the moment I saw that I knew he does not have that tactical abilities I wish for a draw but the better team won.

Negatives: 1. Gattuso – Tactics. -You can’t sub one of your best player in the pitch for someone below average. Kessie -> baka sub, was probably the stupidest thing. -You needed to switch to 442 when you could see 433 is struggling. You already saw what 442 did against roma, still you stayed with 433 with Cutrone now on the wing? That’s bull. -You waiting 70+ minutes for first Sub? What were you waiting for? The first goal of Inter? Did you even want to win? -Gattuso needs to learn new formations. Without taking risks, you can’t always win. 2.… Read more »

I have said it time without number that Calhanoglu needs to be benched. He contributes nothing to this team. Castilejo is there. Use him! His poor performance is even affecting Suso because the whole opponent defenders attention at the wing side is on only Suso. Suso would have thrived so much had it been that Calhanoglu too can distract the attention of opponent defenders from Suso for him to get enough space to operate .

Yes, one of the reasons for our upturn last season was that Calha was delivering thus removing the pressure and attention on Suso as there was another danger man to focus on… we really need him or Castillejo to step up. Rino will keep playing Calha until he gets his confidence back though, and who knows when and if that will be. Thought his confidence would come back after the game against Oly but I was mistaken.

Just watched the highlights, damn it looks even worse looking at the highlights. Inter truly were worthy winners. It would’ve been great if we could’ve gotten a point despite us being so poor..

I will rather say gattuso is out of his mind. He is using most of our midfielders and attacker’s out of their normal/natural position. We will still keep on getting un-expected/disgraceful result until we inject the style of 2 strikers formation.

Whoa whoa whoa…. stop it! Where are all those Gattuso haters coming out from now? After those two wins nobody couldn’t give him a mild criticism without 98% of the blog jumping on your throat. And now everyone is disappointed and they are bashing him? I knew this is gonna happen with Inter, and even if I knew I fucked up my voice cords screaming for Milan last night… hell I even woke up my wife last night couple of times, I am still not sure if I will stay married lol. Gattuso did his best.. he played HIS 11… Read more »

No one really hates him to be honest. He is good at man management. And of course, he is our Rino. He will always be one of our legends and will be respected. But we all gotta admit, he has flaws as a coach. A good manager must know when to switch formations in game. Same formation can’t work against all teams. Same buildup play can’t work against all teams specially when it’s predictable from a thousand miles away. Inter wasn’t that good. But our tactical mistakes made inter look like some sort of a supernatural team. All we are… Read more »

As I said before, We should seriously consider hiring Jardim as fast as possible. He is on Real, Man U and some smaller clubs shortlist and sooner or later someone would hire him. he is a stable coach. a coach who trust young players. his teams don’t play 3-4-3 like conte does. a formation that does not suits Milan. we have only 3 good central defender.

This is unacceptable! It’s 3AM now, and I can’t sleep, heck, I can’t even make love because of a certain medieval dolt of coach, who has no heart, whose grinta is just a toothless bark, nothing more, nothing less! The focus should now be on management to save this season and this club. If the “Grinta” is still the coach come next month, then their competency must be questioned by Elliot. This charade cannot go on. Players are already disillusioned: Hakan cuts a frustrated figure being played out of position, Higuain will soon become angry and want to leave soon… Read more »

Matteo Salvini, Minister of the Interior and well-known Milan fan on Instagram on the loss to Inter:
“Derby lost by the Donnarumma-Gattuso couple …
When you don’t play to win, you’ve already lost.
Rightly so”

Gattuso has no balls to change what it goes wrong and this is a big problem referring to our goals. It’s not possible to play again and again Calhanoglu when he is out of form and not trying Castillejo, Halilovic or even Borini, the same for Donnarumma, he should be benched for a while, that’s it, he is out of inspiration, why not to try to change something when everything goes wrong, this is the question I don’t understand about Rino Gattuso ! He should try something else , how it’s possible to play Cutrone on the left ???? Try… Read more »

Bakayoko instead of Kessie. Cutrone as a winger. Abate at 91 min. Wtf. When teams can’t stop our 433 we win , When they can they win ! As simple as that. Sarri vs Klopp or Mourinho in yje past few days was a F’ing tactical war !! U can’t read anyone’s type of play , but to start a game willing to kerp the 0 0 , well that’s F’ed up. It’s not if Gattuso was good or bad , it’s about him being rigid as F. I’m 90% sure we’d have wonif we played offensively , their defence… Read more »

Since 2008, we’ve never been champions league material. Since 2011 we’ve never been able to compete for the top 4, talk more of winning the title. Let’s get something straight, we’re f****d. And it hurts to say that we’ve become average. And that’s the bitter truth, no investor have succeeded and Elliot management ain’t in for some future expectations, they’re the NOW business kind of people and if we don’t keep up, they might leave us at our mercies probably selling some of our bests to balance the books. Like berlu did with Zlatan and Silva. Well to cut the… Read more »

What you said is frightening but true. And it could happen with Elliott, if management does not do the right thing and change this man and stop us spiraling to the abyss.

Though one thing is for sure, my unyielding love and support for Milan and ONLY Milan, that will NEVER change.

GRINTA OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Calhanoglu is not what I thought he was, where are those free kicks he used to score in Bayern Leverkusen and Turkey national team? We must tell ourselves the truth if truly we want to be great again last night milan lacked confidence to move forward and create something meaningful I think it’s high time we buy already made players mostly midfielders who have the heart to move forward and make something happen On Donnarumma I think he should be on bench always because he’s killing us if peppe is still in Napoli he would have been the first keeper… Read more »

The Tactics were poor… I always hate that we try to play from the back as if were Barca or something…

I always see Gattuso as a motivator and someone who steady the ship… but if u want to take it to the next Level then you must change…. I think even Leonardo or seedorf as coach was better…

I think Gattuso will be relieved pretty sure especially with Conte or Wenger Available…

AC Milan Has a Decent Squad with potential 4th place finish with the right coach….
