  1. This match will be key as we need to win to consolidate our position and punish a co top four contender. A victory will be a big boost.

  2. Comment:
    we should go for the 3 point in mind and nothing else. I believe with our performance against Napoli in copa Roma are nothing and can’t stop us.

  3. This is a MUST WIN GAME GOOOOOAL FROM BAKOYOKO love to see more confidence on him after the start of seson

  4. I hope Milan beats Roma… I really want that to happen in order to boost the confidence of the team. We have what it takes also Roma are having their own problems.

    A part of me wants Napoli to win serie a. Juventus just dropped points against Parma. Napoli are 9 points behind. Apparently, the sale of Benatia and injury of Bonucci and Chellini is having serious impact on Juventus performance. They have conceded 6 goals in 2 games.

    Forza Milan

    • Why the hate against Calhanoglu, he has been good last matches and against Napoli when he came from the bench. I’m very curious to see Calhanoglu and Suso with Piatek. My doubt for the line up would be Kessie. Shame Bonaventura is still injured otherwise he could play LW and move Calhanoglu to midfield. All things considered, I think we will finally see a confident side and thats a good thing. If we can beat Napoli, we surely can beat Roma.

  5. My own take here in this match is that I don’t want to see Borini come in as a substitute. Give Mauri more playing time.

  6. Gattuso wud have played with the same boys that won against Napoli,I wud prefer laxalt to ricrod ,borini to calhanoglu,castillejo to suso…suso is so predictable,and selfish …calhanoglu seem lost and is not a hard worker
    Trust me With suso ,ricrod and calhanoglu it will be a draw or a narrow win

  7. Would like too see Hakan and Paquetta in the middle again in all honesty; but whatever the formation let’s win this one … Rome are on the slump, we should go for the kill from minute 1.

  8. What would some of you have said if romagnoli played poorly in midfield. Its not his position is it. We bought castillejo as a winger, keep him on the bench and we still blame calhanoglu, a playmaker turn winger for poor showings. Gatusso played with pirlo, seedorf and kaka in midfield and should know better. What has kessie done for milan at all. Y can’t bakayoko, paqueta and calhanoglu play in a 3 man midfield. Win for us guys. Gud luck. Luv Milan.

  9. Just wish calhanoglu plays along with Baja and paqueta in midfield. Allow castillejo to play where he belongs on the wings. We can’t be playing our best players out of position so that they are lambasted byvour own fans for bad showings. I don’t get gatusso, he played alongside pirlo, seedorf and kaka. I mean he played with 3 playmakers around him. What does kessie offer Milan that he has become indispensable.calhanoglu, what a passer he is, but he is always on the wings working his socks off. I am sad for him. If romagnoli flopped in midfield would you complain for his been out of position or his performance.

  10. Well good point but have my reservations for Bakayoko, Suso , Gattuso and Paqueta. Good game for our players and coach but I noticed something not rewarding in these above mentioned names and coach
    Bakayoko: good game but was playing against us, he was too slow to release the ball and was often dribbling awkwardly
    Suso wasn’t in the game and should play with team mates
    Paqueta: very strong but should be faster and feed our wings and striker
    Gattuso: very good performance but should always realize that Calabria is not match to some opponent of big club players and should start Abate instead in a big match such as Roma Juventus lazio inter
    Above all we had good game and should be wary of season to season weakness to avoid it I mean drawing and losing to smaller clubs so let take advantage of inter loss and claim 3rd position
    Forza milan

  11. On Calhanoglu,
    Ricardo Rodriguez’s lack of pace restricts him from adding to our attack (as a modern full back should) , and that affects Hakan’s performance in someway, as he struggles to find options down the left wing, even in midfied, when we’ve had to launch an attack.

    RR defends quite well sometimes, but I love to see Calabria in his position and Conti at RB to add more to our attacking options
