When I talk People will start complaining, look at what these loafers are playing, shooting 30+ yards shots as if they are training because they can’t create anything, even parma have more creativity than we do all because we have a clueless manager who offer nothing going forward and if we win with a goal then gattuso is good… This team with gattuso is not good for champions league, we will be deceiving ourselves keeping this man beyond this season

Bro, totally agree. I am totally lost. If anyone can explain what Milan is doing out there I would love to hear it.

This is shockingly bizarre. I can’t even find the words to describe this madness.

Even if I didn’t see the game, I believe you completely. That has been our tactics.
Everybody, oya start shooting to Piatek, Piatek run….run
.run…you are like Shevchenko. Nonsense tactics.
If Piatek is not there, just be shooting at goal. One will enter……. Eba and amala tactics. Rubbish

Kessie is not useless. Mark My words. This guy isn’t being used to the fullest. He can destroy opponents pace and can pick pinpoint passes. Two of the best qualities. Rino is simply using him wrong. Kessie can turn any midfield almost invincible if used properly.

Are u telling me rino asked kessie to play uselessly? Wow, that really explain a lot

This has to be the worst football I’ve seen in my life. What are they doing in training? Milan has no tactical gameplan going forward. They are so predictable and the players don’t have a clue what to do in attack.

Suso and Borini are playing some bizarre football. Borini is too inverted and Suso is too wide then he comes in to inverted then he’s too wide again. Like the hell are they doing out there?

I swear even if Milan qualifies for the UCL Gattuso got to go man. What the hell is this shit. Is this football?

Bro, you should try watching RicRod when he plays for Switzerland. They guy singlehandedly takes care of the whole left wing as well as defense then he creates chances as well. And here under Rino’s Milan, even this guy is useless. Shocking!

Can someone please tell me what can borivaldo do on the pitch that samu and laxalt can not? This pathetic excuse for a player cant cross, cant dribble past opponents, has terrible positioning and basically has zero presence. Park ji sung also couldnt play football properly but he had acute tactical intelligence, finishing and positioning hence he could play practically anywhere, even as rb. Also, they play with 4-3-3 formation but the mf are too scared to get the ball, let alone move it around. they just stay upfront near parma’s penalty box hoping someone will send long ball 80′… Read more »

We have the pace, dynamic and tactic of an old boys team, and that’s why Gatusso is our coach. The only thing that gives me hope is Gazidis firing this joke at the end of the season.

OMG! What a horror show. Champions league football with Gattuso will be nothing short of an embarrassment. This guy is making me hate football. l’m speechless. Don’t know how anyone can keep faith in Gattuso when he clearly doesn’t have a freaking clue.

Unbelievable the amount of formation change Gattuso made in one game. Pure madness! If Gattuso is coach then I’m Moses.

The commentator said “since I’ve been watching Milan this season there opponents always look better than them but the only thing Milan does better than their opponents is looking bad”. Parma looked more dangerous than us in defending, attacking, crossing the ball, passing the ball, even throwing the ball. This team’s tactics is just bad and terrible to watch. The only player that actually played well today was Zapata. UNDER GATTUSO, WE ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE!!! Mark my words!

What exactly has ricrod to offer both defensive and offensive that laxalt can’t offer? What was kessie and Suso doing on the pitch when bakoyoko was taken out? why do gattuso always bench samu castillejo when it is clear he is currently better than the snaily suso? why playing defensive when u are a goal up against a small team like parma? What was samu and suso position in the match? What exactly was all those 30+ yard… Read more »

Paqueta seems to be the only midfielder who can threaten in the final third. Sell Hakan and Suso. Get that Everton kid from Gremio. Need an alternative threat. Promote Maldini and to be back up for Paqueta meanwhile for the last 5 matches. Play Cutrone + Piatek either as 2 strikers, or even put Cutrone again in the LW. That will be more dangerous than playing Borini there. And get Tsajoud as back up striker. By the way I disagree with Laxalt in LW. He is just slightly better than Borini maybe, but he loses his mind in the final… Read more »

Gattuso is not the right man for this Milan. We need Gasperini. This is not football, this is a big mess ! We need 2 strikers, suso should go if he still play like that every game. The same ugly football, ugly, extremely ugly.

When will Gattuso learn that against strong and weak opponent we need different type of player? Borini is useful against strong opponent for his movement and workrate but useless against weak team.

Hey guys , please stop blaming Gattuso. Not that these guys are all that bad. The problem is lack of confidence,and the scrambling for champion league spots by 5 teams wilt close gap has worsened the situation.This is not the time to blame anybody but to support. Blame should come when we qualify and we can’t buy world class players. The more we blame them the more they lose confidence and we don’t want that now. I know it is frustrating that for the entire 90 minutes no one of the players was able to dribble past our opponent. All… Read more »

Today was a bad game. Subs again today we’re wrong. Why start Conti if you’re always going to take him off in the 60th? Bakayoko controls that middle so why take him off and why put borini as a rb!?

Those weekends where u can take advantage because other teams were competing with r playing each other and we still stall. So frustrating. Now we can be passed and have 3 other teams be right in our tails. Man awful performance

Some Milan fans are looking like wolves in sheep clothing. Rooting for Inter? What kind a madness is this. This feels like a Judas betrayal. Smh.

If Milan is a team of men with balls then they should handle their own business on the pitch and not depend on any team to take care of their problems for them to qualify for the UCL.

Last 5 games we are away 3 of them. Regardless of opponents we will play they are tough matches on current form. Hate to say it but we will have to rely on teams round us dropping points, well done chievo. Only saw highlights of match but we not playing well and piatek must be so frustrated at service he gets. He had more chances at genoa than at milan, pretty much sums it up.

I didn’t read anywhere that Inzaghi it’s clueless and he has to go. Yes it’s frustrating and Gattuso seems to be losing the locker room, he can’t motivate them, so they in a way are asking for a change. I really can’t blame Gattuso, it’s unbelievable how this team is so inconsistent. You use the same tactics that gives a solid performance against Juve Napoli and Roma, but it doesn’t work with Parma?

I lost interest watching Milan matches like a month ago.
How do you want to be a champion and hope other teams do your job for you.
You want to be a leader in a community of failures?
This has never been the Milan way and we won’t start now.
We fight to earn our spot.

I said it before, some people are overly sentimental over Gatuso, but he will never take us to where we want to see our dear Milan ( in the midst of Champions) because he is not good enough.

Its a fact. Like it or not

Honestly Biglia is not on Bakayoko’s level. We should sell him. As soon as he came in we lost the midfield.
Also Conti has either forgotten how to defend or has become lazy defensively.
And Borini, I respect his work rate but Milan can do better.

maybe they should create a new religion with gattuso as a god.
their reason always “hey at least we got a point and our rivals are dropping points too, blah blah blah”
it’s not all about the point
it’s the way milan play
it’s almost disgusting to watch milan play their style, if they have one that is
i can’t even imagine how milan gonna be trashed in UCL if milan are still under gattuso

433 was a fine formation for the team, but we need to start the game with far more intensity. Otherwise opponents are simply walking over us. We need to have a gameplan as well. I really don’t know what our gameplan really was against Parma, not even gonna try to figure it out since it’s probably the worst football we played this season. If this is any hint for what’s coming next, I think we can say goodbye to our UCL dreams already. I have a feeling Atalanta will go ahead of us and be in the UCL. After today’s… Read more »
