Hmm, this could be a very interesting option! Bona in the middle, could be a diamond shaped midfield with Bona behind the strikers in other words. Interesting, very interesting. We’ll see how it goes, if it’s nice then I wouldn’t mind Kessié in that line-up instead of Biglia. Honestly I’d think he’d be an amazing destroyer, like Kanté or Casemiro.

I agree, I really like this lineup, and with Kessie instead of Biglia it could be complete.
Also, Caldara when he is fit.

Oh yes, Caldara as well, definitely agree mate!

@Rossi, at first I read that Laxalt was going to play as the wide midfielder, which was an option I liked and didn’t think of, but either it got edited to Bonaventura in that position or I must have been high or something so I didn’t read correctly. Yeah, but isn’t Paqueta more of a mezz’ala rather than a Kaka type of player? At least that’s the impression I got of him, and from what I’ve read, but a lot of people seem to draw comparisons to Kaka for some reason.

At the moment Paqueta plays behind the striker in a 4-2-3-1 formation, on transfer market his main position is also attacking mid (trequartista), he can play as a central mid and side mid also but mainly he is attack oriented and playes behind the strikers. He is not exaclty like Kaka in style of play but he is playing the same position as him. I read that Laxat was going to start to but on another page, apparently Kessie had some injury problem and Bona should have moved in the mid as a result…but it seems Kessie is fine now… Read more »

Paqueta currently run and fast play like slightly poorer Kaka, but play on stopped ball like poorer Ronaldinho.

With a lot of future in front of Him. 🙂

It will be a 4-4-2 with bona and suso on the sides, but your option is interesting to. Kessie is a natural destroyer, and with Paqueta arival we will have a natural AM playmaker same as Kaka before so the diamond formation should be seriously considered.

I love all the comments above, yeah very good and interesting, woo the best and accurate, splendid BUT it’s all easy here in this blog. Our players are very lazy to execute all these. Has anyone seen them play like who are hungry for victory or who have pride? Even Gattuso is the best when to give speeches and elaborate on his team but fails to put such perspectives in the field of play I watched other clubs who have respect for the feelings of her fans how they play. I must say for milan to be great again milan… Read more »

Montolivo iS still better than Biblia imo, he, suso and cutrone were the performers under montella.

I feel so sad about Monty top 4 Italy midfielder for years and suffered injuries and the worsest Milan team

Its good that rino can admit his and his predecessors mistake of abusing 4-3-3. Im also glad that he’s converted to milan10ism and use formation that uses 2 st. Better late than sorry/never my mom used to say. (Btw my mom asked me whether milan win in the morning after ‘93 ucl final. She got surprised when i said milan with san marco lost. See, even someone who didnt like football knew its surprising that milan lost in a major final. They were that good. Now some milanisti just wanna hold hands with rino and sing kumbaya together in the… Read more »

Well, we’re pretty much dead, Gatusso. Us fans. I want to remind Leo-Maldini that while they been in a long hiatus from the club, us fans have been here for the entire demise of Milan. We watched brick after brick being taken apart. So we’ve been here before. Heck, we got Rino by sacking someone at mid term with no replacement. Rushing someone in instead of Gatusso won’t do us any good. We need to choose someone carefully, and then buy according to his perfered formation (so LW if 4-3-3 is how we want to go). Since I don’t think… Read more »

Oh boy! Here we go!

Another round of postulating, analyzing, proffering, ejaculating of ideas and concepts for the match, to what end I ask?

The “Kumbas” are really out for it this time. Haha!

Well, it a couple of hours to crunch time, as the “Grinta” walks the gang plank to oblivion. I certainly have “Great Expectations” for this match – Milan liberating match from the ‘Grint.’

I’m 100% sure that only if we had Muntari and Essien in the midfield we would win this match.

Bring in Zamparini, he is the man that would satisfy most of the Milan fans on this blog who are calling for Gattuso`s sacking.
