Can’t create anything! So frustrating, we need players with pace and skill. We can’t beat a player to create chances, what have we been doing in training.?Pass to side pass back, so predictable horrible to watch.

Even worse than that, notice that on most passes, the ball just bounces high or goes away. It’s like they can’t control a pass. I don’t care if you aren’t a “playmaker” . Every player should.be able to control a freaking pass.

WOW. I’m not able to watch the game but I guess it’s the same old Milan. Not surprised. We can change formation all day with same coach it won’t make a difference if we don’t have a good tactical gameplan to break down teams. Smh.

Lazio look like they’re playing against a bunch of Perugia players. I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it, formation is not our problem. Tactics is our problem. I have never seen such a confused and dumb coach in my life before. If any of you so called fans are okay with this kind of stupid play style that we employ under Gattuso then I’m sorry for you. This is terrible and it’s not just the first time we’ve looked terrible, it’s been same thing since last season under Gattuso. He had the rest of last season and the… Read more »

Gattuso can play any formation he wants but as long as the gameplan/tactics remains the same , it’s never gonna work. I hate watching this team play under Gattuso. You wonder why Piatek scores so many goals at Genoa? It’s simply cos they play better than us.

I’m so confused right now.. Is this team cursed or what?? Can’t trap, can’t give good passes, can’t create chances. What annoys me the most is how static this team is. No running off the ball to open spaces.. Just pass the ball and stand on one spot. I can’t stand Suso anymore, dude has to leave.

I’ve been saying this for a long time, our midfield can’t combine bc we don’t have anyone with skills. We play 2 destroyers and expect our 2 slow/ not skilled wingers to create from outside. It just doesn’t work that way

Truth is, milan haven’t had a great performance in a while. They have zero creativity up front and whenever we change formations we lose the midfield. Besides the defence nothing looks good. All that matters to me is getting a champions League spot

Saw that? Cutrone waving with his hand towards his teammates to come and press higher but they just stood there, did nothing.

It was a poor match which sums up a string of terrible performances. Anyone else notice the effect of Paqueta’s absence? It seems since he got fatigued and then injured our results have suffered. Cant wait to get him and Jack back.

It was only Gatuso hungry on the field, not the team.
Tactics = hungry team, once the team is hungry we’re will win

Tell me why we keep playing formations that require us to use wingers! We don’t have the players to play 3 up front! Jesus Christ it’s not hard, play a 2 forward system. Our attack got better when cutrone came in to help. We already know a 4312 or 4132 would work. And when tf is paqueta going to play! No creativity in the center bc we have to destroyers, wingers are too slow and can’t cross!

Exactly, I just can’t understand it. We play a 343 and the wingers still don’t come back to defend. Our actual wingers in mid don’t know how to come back and defend, so why play with wingers that don’t understand how to play the formation

Terrible, terrible, terrible. Can’t find something good to say about today’s match. Reina was probably our best player on the pitch.

Really painful watching Lazio celebrate in San Siro, with their star player injured from the start.

But this weekend in Torino is the real thing; lets hope (pray?) we can bounce back.

How beautiful were Lazio against Chievo in the weekend? Today Milan tried a lot of the things I thought we should’ve tried earlier, in particular switching Samu and Suso’s sides (at least twice in the first half). Also, Suso often came to the middle and tried to be the playmaker. Guess what? Everything failed miserably. I think it’s clear by now that Suso cannot carry on his own a team as big as Milan. Bakayoko and Kessie alone in the midfield? Maybe only if they have Kaka in front of them. Don’t get me wrong, Gatusso’s experiment failed miserably, and… Read more »

@Baresis Dream….I totally disagree. Milan have quality players that represent their respective national teams. How many of Lazio players get regular call up and game time on their national teams? Majority of Lazio players are fringe players. A good coach is able to get the best out of the players at his disposal. Today’s game is proof that Milan’s issues is not a formation problem but a tactical gameplan problem. That’s a coaching defect. It doesn’t matter which formation we use it’s same horrible football.

Lazio players aint better than ours?The biggest problem with Milan fans is that you relate the cost of a player to ability. That mercato of over 200m by Fassobelli was the worst ever and y’all still have it in your mind that we are better bcz we spend. If they are better why cldnt Montella do it?

Nick and Kossymilan mates, I’m not saying Lazio have a better squad than ours, I’m saying both squads are of similar level (perhaps ours only slightly better), and hence the results throughout the season amongst both teams are pretty much to be expected. You conveniently failed to mention Immobile and SMS. I also like Romulo and Felipe; not to mention the good experienced players on the bench such as Parolo and Badjel. And Correa and Alberto are decent players in my book, especially the former which we could really use in our squad. And the frindge-player argument is strange (as… Read more »

Apart from a coaching issue which is pretty obvious, Milan is a team that’s poorly built. The left side offers nothing in attack. That was the case before Deulofeu successful loan spell and yet we failed to find a good player on the left to replace him since mirabelli made the dumbest decision to not resign Deulofeu. Regardless, Gattuso could have improvise by using laxalt who I believe would have been way more effective than Borini. In any case the main problem is the lack of tactical gameplan and there’s no way to get around that fact. When a more… Read more »

For once, let’s forget about this Gatuso thing as it seems most people agree on his coaching deficiencies.
I fear Bakayoko may not want to remain in Italy, cos of the racism Scourge. I don’t think the Italian federation has done enough over the years to deal with it appropriately and to eradicate it.
What do you guyz think?

Gattuso said the players made fool of themselves in the lazio… The same bastard that had no tactical plan before, during and after the match..if I were gazidiz, this his comment will seal his sack at the end of the season

I couldn’t agree more. I was shocked when I read that. But it’s not the first time he has publicly thrown his players under the bus. After Bakayoko’s 1st game he claimed that the player has defects and he doesn’t know how to position his body to receive the ball.

I didn’t even bother watching the game as I figured it would be more or less the same foolishness we have seen all season.

I clearly saw two Milan teams today, Calabria Suso Cutrone Calhanoglu and Caldara those had the balls to go forward. Mussacio has lost it, he should consider american football when he retires. Laxalt was FRUSTRATING. Conti a flop and responsible for the goal, Castillejo offers nothing. This team doesn’t enjoy to be on the pitch, they can’t handle the pressure, there is chaos, they don’t like to attack, they are more comfortable without the ball. You can blame Gattuso all day long, but I can see 6-8 players leaving this summer. Gattuso’s experiment was in the hope to get more… Read more »

The reason for the coaching change is because non of them were quality coaches since Allegri left.

If you buy a cheap pair of shoes you will have to keep replacing it unless you buy a quality well made shoe. That’s the difference with quality. It last longer. Smh

I’m curious, what makes allegri a good coach? He took over milan when we had ibra and a number of good players while serie a was weak. Then he took over Juventus after Conte created a team and it’s no biggie for them to win serie a every year. Champions League allegri has shown he doesn’t have it and Juventus need a change.

You know what, next time when there is a racist chant from a section of the stadium, either the fans will be escorted out of the stadium; identified and banned for life from stadiums; and if it these happen repeatedly, the team should be eliminated from whatever competition they are playing (even if it the team is Milan), and having to play with a stadium ban for full season – or having no home matches for the rest of the season.
