Paqueta to Piatek! I hope these two keep linking up like this.

Paqueta -> Piatek -> goal

Donnarumma has been stellar this half. After a poor performance from the team. Good thing is magic from paqueta and piatek only needs half a chance to score. We need a much better second half let’s go!!

Kessie is gradually declining since the surge of Bakayoko. Gatusso should know better than me,but i think we should stop staying deep and start learning how to dominate too(just my opinion as a fan tho).

I’m so sorry about Suso. He doesn’t seem convincing anymore. Same about Hakan, they lack of spark.
What I love at the moment is that I’m slowly getting back on mood when I’m not feeling nervous about Milan any more, like years ago…

We need to re-learn winning big matches again

Can’t watch match but reading the messages so far makes me wonder why we sit deep all time.its not like we have loads of pace apart from piatek up front to play on counter attack.suso and hakan are slow just can’t figure it out.and as pa ibra said eventually we will concede because of pressure

Gattuso to his team.

Once u have the ball, just shoot to Piatek.
Poor game plan / coaching.

Poor game management by Gattuso. What can Cutrone and Laxalt do with 4mins of game to play? It would have made more sense to sub them in around the 70th or 75th min at least.

Zapata has shown that he is more reliable than Mussachio this season. Poor position and poor touch to put Donnarumma in horrible position to save an own goal. Mussachio position is so poor on free kicks and corners which a strong suit for Zapata.

The referee today was a complete joke. Smh

I’ll take the draw since Inter lost to Genoa today.

Laxalt for one could havce scored as i believe it was he WHO missed a howler in the last couple of minutes of the match.

Milanista121

I agree mate, they should’ve come on sooner. This still remains Gattuso’s biggest flaw imo, hope he’ll get it sorted asap. Like @martin bernhard said, Laxalt at least came close to scoring, but if they came on sooner, perhaps we’d created more. I’m honestly done with Suso and want to see more of Casti, he’s capable, but he still lacks that “edge” in the final third that Suso can occasionaly conjure up, but at least he’s a team player and runs his socks off for us. Zapata’s injury couldn’t be more untimely… I thought we would struggle with Milik’s presence,… Read more »

@Milanista121… Totally understand the frustration with Suso but I don’t think we should give up on him just yet. He’s still the leading player in assist with 8 in Serie A. So he has quality in him:-) To be honest, the reason I believe we are not getting the best out of Suso is because of the position he plays on the pitch. I truly believe that he would do better playing closer to the goal as a 2nd striker. This is not a Gattuso rant by any means because every coach so far at Milan has always played him… Read more »

Such a disappointing game. I am convinced gattuso has to leave, either now or during next season start. Calhanoglu is such a lethargic player!! Kessie is very poor. Calabria gets nervous always at the slightest amount of pressure. We must not waste talents of paqueta, Piatek, Cutrone etc. by playing such a defensive game

Pato
Guest
Pato

We need to bench Calhanoglu. Am getting pissed off with his style of play. He is a complete minus one in this team. He contributes absolutely nothing. Gattuso, why are u so glued with this Calhanoglu? I like u and I like you as our coach but with this your choice of Calhanoglu every time, then my liking for you is fading. Pleaseeeee remove this calhanonsense and field better players.

And suso ,I prefer borini to calhanoglu ,and I prefer castillejo to suso

Same as any other game no game plan just defending and shoot the ball forward maybe some induvidual will score somehow, this is the most frustrating football that Milan has ever played, i dont know who are we going to buy next but it wont matter with this style of play. Roma created 14 chances and we created 6, getting outplayed by Roma who is in terrible form and was missing a few starters also what more can be said.. and please dont mention the game with Napoli, it was the same thing but since we won no one cared… Read more »

Amd here we go again with the Gattuso haters. What a buch of nitwits you are!!!

Gattuso did everything right, but just fckng face it, it was Hakan and Suso who were so poor that they couldn’t put any pressure on the weak Roma defense. Name 1 fckng thing they did right today? 1!!!! I fckng dare ya!!!

Next summer, sell Suso and Hakan and get 2 proper wingers or put Bonaventura on the left and get 1 right winger.

I wud rather play castillejo in suso place ,look at wen castillejo came on with laxalt the game changed

Obviously a win would have been preferable but i would have taken a draw as a welcomed result before the match began as roma really isnt a bad team regardless of how they have been playing lately. We should also remember that this was the chance for the roma players to potentially save di francescos job and save a bit of honour so this match was never gonna be a picnic in the park even if some people was expecting a victory after romas midweek bashing. The result could have gone either way as both teams had chances to burry… Read more »

I didnt see the game but Calhanoglu is not a bad player its just that hes not a winger and hes having a bit of a dip. We dont have much other options atm except for borini and casti. But casti is a RW. Gattuso should play calha in CAM or bench him. Once bona recovers well have a decent option for LW. Or maybe try laxalt on LW? Still a draw away against roma is definitely not a bad result as we keep 4th place. Loving our new signings tho ! Piatek that real ruthless striker and paqueta adds… Read more »

Suso holds the ball for too long and just realized he is not so good with passes. Calhanoglu has been out of form. Donaruma has been God sent and Piatek seems to be God sent also. Rogmanoli did well today and why does Gatuso have to wait so long to make changes?

Okay, I haven’t read the comments as I’m sure there will be hate towards Gattuso. Some warranted though. I’m sure that we all wanted a win, a convincing one as well knowing that we just beat Napoli and Roma got thrashed 7-1. But all things considered, if that result didn’t happen, would we still be so disappointed with how the game looked and the draw? Four points out of six total vs Roma, a direct competitor for the UCL spots isn’t bad at all, it’s more than that. I too didn’t accept a draw beforehand, but when I let my… Read more »

Agree mate… we need upgrades for both him and Suso. But until then, I hope both of them can help the team get to UCL. I’d even play Borini over Hakan, he’s looked inspired recently. He’s good at stretching opposition defences, unfortunately he’s not as good to do something when he gets the ball at his feet haha

I agree suso can be so frustrating. One day he’s providing assists and the next he’s the most selfish player and makes the wrong choice. But then he scores or provides an assist. Calhanoglu on the other end has to be benched. He has been so poor it’s unbelievable. Piatek needs service. Thank God paqueta is playing well

Lando
Guest

this is the excact same milan under gattuso.
we will have 1-2 good games and then people will forget that we have other bad games.
gattuso will be on the verge of being fired, then milan will win 1-2 games, and the talks just evaporate.
and tbh, most of milan wins come from individual skills or efforts.
nothing come from the game plan.
for a couple weeks milan will have suso carrying the team, the next weeks it will be cutrone, now it will be piatek.
so on and so forth.

Perhaps if suso was juventino the penalty would have been awarded. But in all honesty a draw against Napoli and Roma works for me, the real problem is wether milan can take maximum points from the supposedly weaker teams

Gatuso thinks he can recover all out of form players like he did for Baka but he’s wrong and this is badly affecting Milan. What has Hakan does to deserve a shirt than Borini? Gatuso thinks his personal love for a player can revive them? Nope! Hakan was meant to be sold but Gatuso vetoed the sale and that is an absolutely dumb decision. Hakan has bigger off the pitch issue than he isn’t shaking off his head and the more Gatuso forces him to play in such mental condition the more he gets booed by the crowd and the… Read more »

When you play 433 with both of your wingers out of form, this is tje outcome. Hakan is so painful to watch on that wing, he’s been poor since the start of this season. Rino is giving him all the playing time in hope he will regain his confidence… It’s been more than half a season! Bench him!

Donnarumma MOTM saved us at least a point

Pele80
Guest
Pele80

When you go into such match where your opponent had lost shamefully on a high margin, you have to rush them aggressively cos they have lost their confidence. The whistles from their own fans is a big advantage for us,but Gatusso chose to play defensive. Paquetta is gradually becoming a defender and bet me that would affect his attacking instict. I love Gatusso but to be honest, we need a Gasperini.

Like someone already mentioned above – it was the same ultra defensive approach against Napoli but because we have won everyone ignored the negatives which is natural I know. The thing is this club always talking about getting back to putting fear into the opponents and dominating but they don’t even try to do that on the pitch. Not saying we should dominate Roma but at least don’t play like cowards. Hell with only result matters. It’s actually harder to keep consistency of results with defensive approach than attacking. Rino we don’t buy Paquata and all these players for you… Read more »

If you go ahead and look at the table, at teams between 4-11 places, this is where the money is at. This is our main competition, and whoever gets most points from this “inner table” will most likely get the 4th. It’s super tight, with now 3 teams with a only a point behind us. But anyone whose been following seria a in recent years know Sasussolo and Fiorentina are also quite dangerous, and will be in the fight till the end. And Samp and Torino, and even Parma, are now slouches either. It’s going to be super tough for… Read more »

3 things i learnt from the Roma match;
1. Gattuso reacts late with substitution. He is always afraid to take a decision as regards changing the game except when losing.
2. Suso and Pacqueta do not have strength for 90mins and were visibly tired 60 mins .Castiello and Borini should start some of the big matches.
3. Conti should be ahead of Calabria.

Valid points and I will agree that the team is doing better under Gattuso than any of our previous coaches since Allegri left. I am not a fan of his football though and I don’t think he can do better than a top 4 finish. I will be surprised if does better than that. Gattuso lacks tactical skills and game management awareness and that is critical in today’s game. His use of certain formation 433 & 442 is not getting the best out of some key players like Suso and Caphanoglu. If he improves in these areas then he can… Read more »

I care less whether Gattuso leaves out not but what I care about is a fair assessment which your post lacks. You make it seem like Milan are better than those teams you just mentioned 1. Juventus are unbeaten in the league and are currently in champions league (favourites to win). Napoli are 2nd in the league standing and are in the Europa league. Inter are 3rd in the league table and are competing in Europa league. Milan are 4th and in the semi finals of the the Coppa italia. Milan are not better than the above named clubs. You… Read more »

@nick, when things didn’t go our way he changed to a 4 4 2. After poor defensive displays and injuries he was right to go back to a 4 3 3. Now our defence and our midfield has been tremendous. It’s not gattuso’s fault that both suso and calhanoglu have been under performing. If anything suso should be playing his best football in a 4 3 3. As for calhanoglu. He’s been poor no matter where we put him which I’m upset about.

Guest

@Milanellofm… I hear you but there are other formations outside a 433 or 442 that Gattuso can use 🙂 All jokes aside, to be honest, I don’t believe we have the players that are best suited for any of those formations mentioned. Milan current squad is best suited for a 4231, 4312 or 4321. As for the coach, it’s his job to get best out of his players and that can be achieved by playing them in the position that suits them the best. Look at Man United for example, Solskjaer is no genius coach, he’s just playing the players… Read more »

Nick, our beloved Milanellofm is right, actually spot on.

Suso and Calhanoglu are just not good enough. It has nothing to do with the formation. Suso is a winger, but too slow and mediocre in everything for Milan.

Calhanoglu is not even a winger, but also not good enough for Milan. He was even very inconsistent at Leverkusen.

LeoDini should sell them along with Montolivo and Bertolacci. Then buy Chiesa and Bakayoko.

Sakiru Tijani

Yeah @Nick…I mean look at way we changing coaches every season and overhauling the whole squad every season….this ain’t helping at all….he did great at end of last season and now he’s 4th with a youthful team and new players still geling to play together. Look at Bakayoko now…why won’t we give Gattuso the credit for believing in him till he gains back his prowess. And if he’s sacked I don’t give a shit but must be replaced by a coach that has won leagues and CL….but is Milan financially capable for that? Just two players in Juve injured and… Read more »

Guys, I know how bad 442 was for us, but I think Suso would do a lot better supporting Piatek wide on the right, I think sending him long passes suit him better, he is fast with a good first touch, he needs to be near the offside line. His passing and crossing is awful, and he always gets lots of pressure from 2 o 3 defenders.

Piatek/Cutro———-Suso/Castillejo

Laxalt/Hakan——Bakayoko——–Kessie——–Conti/Calabria

nick
Guest

@Mathijs Savicevic…Well, I don’t agree or disagree entirely 🙂 because Suso is currently leading the league in assists with 8 to his credit in Serie A. So I have to give him some props because when he’s on form he’s good. No doubt about that. I do question Calhanoglu somewhat though but keep in mind that his first season wasn’t bad and I heard that he was going through some bad moments with family issues. So sometimes that can have a negative effect on a player. He’s definitely not a winger for sure but I’m on the fence about him.… Read more »

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 will love to see Calabria in his position and Conti at RB to add more to our attacking options. It appears to me that we’re being restricted to the 4-3-3 formation because of a single player, Suso. It seems he can’t perform well in any other… Read more »
