Great job by the directors of Milan spending 70 million in this transfer window to strengthen team.reading there quotes from today about the club shows how serious they are to getting Milan back to the top or at least being competitive and getting back into he champions league.on paper now the squad looks strong and they are investing in young players also for the future.just need to get rid of the two to three players we all know should go and free up more cash on there wages.just shows if you get that right structure in place with people like… Read more »

They just reported that a loan deal is trying to be negotiated behind the scenes; really hope it works out

Castillejo,-Conti-Delo: very fast and tall
Cutrone-Piatek: fast and tall poachers
Bakayoko and Kessie tall strong

I’m liking this youth project, tall fast and strong. But Gattuso needs to learn how to score from freekicks and corners.

He has spurned one 1 v 1 chance three games in a row. Otherwise he’s good and links up vey well with Pereyra. I’d welcome him back with open arms, he’s already proven himself here!!

Out of nowhere it says milan are closet to tchouameni and looking to sign deulofeu on loan with option. I don’t know how I feel about deulofeu. He played good for us but since hasn’t been played much for both Barcelona and watford. If it’s for a free loan with just an option it may be worth it to try him out again because we definitely need a lw

Sign the Dutch guy from PSV, not Deulofeu who’s not going to improve much. We should build with top players or at least players with the potential to be. Let’s not go back to buying cheap below par players. Secondly, get attackers with creativity, not just speed like Laxal. Deulofeu like Castillejo will make a good squad player but we need a good starting lineup first.. not necessarily ready-mades but as I said the ones with good chance of being great in the future. If there’s no possibility of spending big money on a winger in this window then a… Read more »

Coach Gattuso today spoke to the press at Milanello: A YOUNG SQUAD “On too many occasions we’re committing mistakes due to inexperience, however, we’re currently enjoying a positive spell. We put in a poor first-half performance during our recent trip to the Marassi, while we improved after the interval. The same thing also happened against Juventus. These type of matches, including the one on Saturday against Napoli, are what is needed to help us grow.” THE TEAM’S CONDITION “I was concerned before Genoa v Milan last week and I wasn’t wrong because in the first 45 minutes we could’ve been… Read more »

Gattuso is stupid. Why did he replace Borini to Paqueta? We lost midfield since then because Calha is not as strong as Paqueta in defense. Piatek was too late to came in also. But the key was Calabria who didn’t give enough support to offensive side. He should had been replaced by Conti!

Mil@nFever

Im sure conti will play tuesday. Paqueta was sacrificed aswell to have him fresh for the coppa game. Would like to see Piatek from start with Calha Paqueta Suso. And Cutrone coming in and scoring a goal i second half..

Gattuso once again took the safe option to play for the draw instead of going for the win. Another poor substitution and poor game management. Piatek should have had more time if Gattuso had just subbed him in early. Sigh.

Conti has been superb for us as a sub mainly because he’s not fully fit. Why not sub in Conti for Calabria and Piatek for Kessie? That way we can play two strikers

He’s always taking the safe option instead of going all out for the win.

Maldini

Wow, another beautiful display of how inapt Gattuso is as a coach. Today we drew only by pure luck and Donnaruma. No comment on substitutions and parking a bus for last 10 minutes on a home pitch. This Milan needs a coach who can instill some consistent gameplan into players. Hopefully some changes will come in summer.

Rossi
Guest

Well at least we got a point. The subs were bad as normal, i mean i know Borini scored a tap in last time, but that dosent make him a good player all of a sudden he is still the same Borini. I hope we wont have to see him on the wing for the rest of the season at least not in hard games like this, i mean you have Napoli a very good team pressing you and all you can do is hit them on the counter with some fast players like Castileho for example, but instead of… Read more »

Raven
Guest

Castillejo seems more effective when coming from the bench, I have the same judgment with Cutrone, I wouldn’t start either of them, but as soon as 65th I would sent them both, I hope leonardo got the message, we need a LW, Castillejo is not quite effective there, Bonera said it, he likes to play on the right, and he is a lot better on that flank.

Rossi
Guest
Rossi

Yea its normal to be a bit better when coming of the bench, especialy for players like them who use there accelleration and speed, so its more effective when opponents are tiered i agree. And yes we deffinetly need a good LW, but as mentioned above from the few players we have who are capable of playing that position Castileho is the best option and yet he is not even used as a sub, who knows after few games he might even show some great results similar like Bakayoko, but its all about giving him a chance.

Raven
Guest
Raven

Paqueta made Hakan look better today, we need him fit for the full match, that boy is golden, and we need to sign Baka, no questions asked, he makes Kessie looks like a one trick pony and without ideas when on the ball. Suso, Hakan and Kessie, Laxalt and Borini 5.5-6.0 Cutrone, RR, Paqueta, Bakayoko, Mussacio and Romagnoli 6.0-6.5 Calabria 6.5 and Donnarumma 8 simply amazing sometimes I forget how young they are. Piatek will be our first defender, put Cutrone in that free role he likes and they both will complement a lot, or using him as lone striker… Read more »

Not just today mate, Paq has had that effect on Hakan since he started! Also made a post similar to that, but it hasn’t been posted yet… 🙂

Paquetá it’s awesome, he feels way more influential than Suso, he is the missing link we’re missing since kaka and pirlo left, he can send a vertical pass, he can receive a pass and switch to attack no problem. I’m really hyped with this kid.

Well 2 serie a games in 2019 = 4 points and 2 clean sheets. I can live with that. Tonight we could have won, but we could have lost aswell.

I couldn’t watch the match unfortunately, so I can’t comment much. But if someone offered me a 0-0 prior to the match I would take it with both hands in all honesty. Napoli isn’t the team we need to take 3 points off; we’re not at that level yet. And true seria a champions get frequent clean sheets. All in all I’m quite happy with this result.

Tonight on midtable rossonero: a midtable who loves donna like a son claimed he’s happy that milan failed to score for 3rd time in 4 home games in a draw vs fellow rival for ucl spot, making it easier for roma, lazio and even sampdoria to overthrow them.

And now for the weather: calm, sunny skies without a cloud in sight. Gattuso’s doing just fine because we’re currently fourth (although admittedly it’s only January) and the team’s playing fantastic football, snatching draws against Napoli, Torino, Bologna, etc. and even winning against Genoa and Sampdoria in recent weeks. We’re in a rebuilding phase. Gattuso said he wants to hold on to two of our best players at all costs, Bertolacci and Zapata, and I really think this could be the beginning of something really special: a Golden Age of Gattuso… similar in style and results to Ancelotti, Capello and… Read more »

Yo Dejan, Inter lost with Torino and are just 5 point ahead of us, should Inter sack Spalletti too?
They are barely doing better than a rookie clueless coach. Please enlighten me with your wisdom.

Oh and please avoid making excuses about 200M because Inter are the 2nd most expensive team in Serie A in terms of wages. Also, please avoid the “luck” excuse.

Why did milan play with tail firmly planted between its legs when they face inter, and they lost anyway (with rino actually saying milan was playing for a win)?

Yes, yes, I know … we could have won 4-0 easily if we only listened to Milan10 advice (is it still 3-5-2 but with more crossing? move Suso to the middle?) or just fire Gatusso as per Dejan.

Dropping points helps our opponents you say? Shishh, why didn’t anyone else think of that. I have an idea, let’s not drop anymore points from now on. Life is so easy when you live in a fantasy world inside your brain…

ah yes yes, 3-5-2. Im glad that u still remember, that means u actually learned mate. but thats actually my analysis of morontella’s milan, a coach who had successfully implemented 3-5-2 with fiorentina before he coached milan, not of rino’s milan. Although i must say players like conti, laxalt, kessie, biglia and even new boy piatek would surely thrive better in 3-5-2 because THE FACT is they actually played better with their previous clubs (lazio, genoa, atalanta use 3-5-2, FACHT). Hell, im even sure bakayoko, who played his best football as one of 2 dm/anchors in 4-2-3-1 at monaco, hakan… Read more »

@baresi I saw the first half and part of the second half. Milan should have win that match. There’s no creativity up front. It’s like Milan is clueless passing the ball around.
LeoDini are taking steps to upgrade the squad same must be done on the coaching if Milan does not improve.
Atalanta just did us a favour by drawing with Roma from 3 goals down. Same will Juventus if they draw or best Lazio.
To be fair we do not deserve this 4th position cos we have maintained it by a number of other clubs slipping.

Milanista121

Milanista121

Really nice first 45 minutes, we should’ve capitalized and done something out of all the good things we did in the first half, unfortunately we didn’t. In the second half, Napoli started to grow into the game, this coincided with Paq clearly being fatigued as he lost all his influence before being subbed – this also affected Hakan as I think he looked lively in the first 45, he looks a better player with Paq on the pitch. Can’t argue with Paq being subbed as it was clear that he was tired and Borini looked good in the previous game… Read more »

Well you can’t win them all, tough opponent and we held on to fourth. LW really needed. 3 days left and we need some Leo magic. PSV wingers out of the question bc of all European interest. Carrasco has crazy wages and 30mill price tag with interests from Arsenal and Inter. Watford want forward 25 mill for Deulofeu no loan+option. What’s left is Djenepo where there’s not much information on, and Groeneveld who’s coming back from injury. After spending 70mill this market I doubt we can splash out any further, 35mill in optionloans is our probable cap till summer. Leo… Read more »

Long term project from new Management in the youth sector. Key name in this movement is the new chief scout Moncada. Moncada is a talented scout who previously worked with Monaco in one of Europes finest talent factory (Mbappe, Fabinho,Kombodia, etc.) This month Milan has made three moves in the youth department. Leroy Abanda 18yo left back (also lw) from Monaco youth team has penned a 5 year contract to Milan.(he was reportedly heading to Juve) and with him Tiago Djalo 19yo centerback from Sporting CP youth has also penned a 5 year deal.(previously linked to manU) An interesting factor… Read more »

Hey there milan2012 in the last month or so i read that Bellanova was demanding 500k in yearly salary which milan would not entertain the idea of so thats one of the main reasons why we let go of him. When that is said i do agree that he would have a really difficult time ever getting any minutes for the Club as we simply has to many options ahead of him. Hopefully if he does develope well we will buy him back at some point though. On a positive note i do really like milans new take on aquirring… Read more »

Bellanova did request a high wage bc there were interests from other clubs for his signature. He was practically asking for a senior contract. To my belief he just wanted real game minutes and a chance to show himself similar to Donna Locatelli Cutrone and Calabria, which he was not offered bc of Conti Calabria and Abate being ahead of him. I don’t doubt his skills/talent but the situation is against him with the players at our disposal. Of all the games he was listed as sub he never played minutes, similar to Tsajdut. Gattuso is also a reason due… Read more »

milan2012 yeah its not really that we disagree he would have a hard time getting a chance in this setup so its not really that i blame him for wanting to leave and bordeaux might infact be the right Club to get developed. Would love to see tsadjout getting some minutes here and there or atleast get loaned out so he can develope as well. I also saw that there was a buyback clause inserted + a percentage of a potential future sale so in the end this might be beneficial for all parts involved.

Watching the Napoli game, I think we will only improve from that game. Just a few things noted. Paqueta is a very good addition and I hope Piatek as well.

Suso is one dimensional and very easy to close down. Sometimes he delays our play going forward with his stupid turns that almost all end up to nothing.

Watford are said to want clost to 30m for deulofeu that becomes an obligation after certain things r met. I think watfords crazy to ask that much. I was for taking him on a loan and if he performs maybe buy for 20m but for that price I’d rather look at other targets like carrasco depay or bergwijn

Adeb Jogzie

Carrasco is equally expensive demanding a high salary equivalent to that of Higuain.

Martin Bernhard
Guest
Martin Bernhard

even 20 mil would be stretching it for deulofeu and watford has allready said that they wont loan him out if he were to leave the club. In regard of carrasco he is according to gazetta seemingly demanding the same wages as what higuain earned (9mil a year) so i think we should cut our loses and move onwards quickly. Even paying carrasco 5-6 mil a year would be too much in my view. Depay is currently valued at 50 mil euros at transfermarkt and is not the leftwinger we are looking for as he fits better as an attacker.… Read more »

Milan10

Milan10

Actually depay IS a winger. He’s basically a poor man’s cr7 who can play on both flanks and occasionally as st but he’s not pure st. 50m for him would be a steal in today’s market, especially considering he’s exactly what milan needs: a complete winger/attacker who can guarantee 20+ goals a season. 50m for him would make so much more sense than 60m for sms but then again, i dont think he’s available for <80m considering how much lyon value fekir. Regarding deulofeu, considering how much at stake, 15-20m for him is actually a fair price; The guy has… Read more »

He is a forward and plays best at the center but yeah im aware he can play as a left or rightwinger. Dont get me wrong he isnt a bad player at all but he isnt a natural winger. Well 50 mil is transfermarkts valuation and looking at other transfers compared to their prices you really should expect adding propably 20 mil on top of that as Clubs tends to demand more than their valuation. He is not a guarantee for 20 goals a season sure he had a great season last year but the only season where he actually… Read more »

I’m very open to Deulofeu since he has been tried, tested and proven at Milan but I agree on the pricetag which is a bit too much for a player at Watford. If Milan can find a lower price then he will definitely be a good signing. Mirabelli and Fassone didn’t sign him when they had the chance instead they claimed Calhanoglu was a better option. Go figure! Carrasco salary is too high and unless he lowers his wages I doubt he will arrive at Milan. Besides, Inter are ahead of us for his signature. Bergwijn is a good option… Read more »

30 million is a bit of a stretch but not by much; and he fits our bill perfectly. You can’t expect to get exactly who you want, at the exact moment in time, in the exact price he is worth. In particular, it makes sense to pay extra for taking someone off a teams roster mid season.

I say negotiate a bit more and go for it.

milan2012
Member
milan2012

@Baresi that’s the sad truth, this late into market teams have no time to find replacements, that’s why they ask for inflated prices. Watford bought Deulofeu for 15 mill but not they ask for 30mill. If new management got in earlier they could of finished transfers up in the summer. But we really need an improved left wing for the remainder of season.

Why are they pursuing Deulofeu so hard? Yes he had good half season in Milan but is he really what we want on a long term? For 30 millions?

Linch me but I rather stick with Hakan and Borini until the summer and then get someone proper for long term. If Deulofeu would be such a hot stuff he would play in one of the tops by now

“Linch me but I rather stick with Hakan and Borini until the summer” this seals this poor soul’s fate as one of les midtables for eternity and beyond.

Gentlemen, be nice:-). We all want the best for our beloved AC Milan.

Besides, according to the latest reports Watford has rejected any possible sale of Deulofeu to Milan. So we will have to look elsewhere.

Bergwijn or Memphis Depay are really good options.

So we are beeing linked with Victor Osimhen Do you know him? I did not until I saw him on you tube. But I must say he looks so clumsy on the ball because of his height. Its gotta be a joke Milan are interested in him. And hes not a winger. He reminded me of a black vesion of peter crouch.

Any favorite starting line ups for tonight guys? If I was playing fifa my three subs would be Conti, Cutrone, and Kessie. My starting formation: Calabria-Musachio-Romagnoli-Rodrigues.. Paqueta-Bakayoko-Calhanoglu.. Castillejo-Piatek-Suso.

nick
Guest

I would start Conti. We need him to be match fit so we can use the Coppa Italia games for that. He’s more productive than Calabria and Abate.

I would also use Mauri instead of Castillejo.
