Haven’t been around since before the derby lost but I remember my last complains were that this team’s luck will eventually run down then will start dropping lot of points and then people will act surprise as if the wins against Empoli Sassuolo Chievo etc were not a good sign. The lack of organisation when pressing is one of my biggest issues with this team. Always sitting back and letting the opponent control the game or sometimes pressing with 3 players expecting that number to win the ball back while the rest sitting really deep. Depressing to watch.

Luck.
What Milan is an Irish team now?

I think what people mean by luck is by not playing well enough to convince one that you can produce a similar result with the same performance .At least this is what I meant by associating our previous wins with luck

Then what you are meaning, is not luck.
That is winning, but not convincing you with the performance.
However here you need to keep in mind that with that similar performance 33 games have been completed – in your opinion. So that is not luck. If it was 1-2 or even 3 games, it would be luck.
So please use some other term like unconvincing performance or recent terrible run of form, instead of luck.
Thank you.

Although I don’t really know how people here reacted to our defeat to Juve but I’ve admitted to my wife that we were unlucky ,so if we can call that one unlucky because we’ve played convincingly then why can’t we refer an unconvincing win as luck? I am pretty sure that Sassuolo and others would claim that they were unlucky against us, so therefore making us the lucky side. Thanks for the suggestions but I believe ‘luck’ is correct to be used

No Piatek?

Gattuso is his own enemy. We hear him going tough in the media for every match but lazy in the game proper. Agreed he has not given the same opportunity to other players in the team but what has those he preferred able to offer? We give in so cheap to little frustration from our opponents. I don’t see the super star in Kassie and co, nothing spectacular in him. These players are destroying milan but will play best against us if sold to other clubs Gattuso should have given opportunity to other players he hated for his own personal… Read more »

The fook you are talking about ‘other players’ he hates for his ‘personal reasons’.
Other players? Monto? Berto?

U got minus 3 which means u are talking out of point.
Believe me the players Gattuso used to execute the league and the Europa are not milan quality
They are lazy and clueless
If truly u knew milan very well honestly u won’t argue because I have seen the best of milan players since 1982 not like this garbage players

OK would like to see 4-4-2 , back to basics, simple solid football

Caldara- Conti- Rodríguez- Romagnoli

Bakayoko- Biglia- Kessié- Paquetá

………. Cutrone – Piątek …………..

Whadda u fink?

I fink I don’t agree.
Because, we have no depth in ST to play two out and out forwards. It is not about having chemistry as Piatek and Cutrone has shown they can play together, but it is about depth. I will never feel confident throwing Borini in as ST.
Numero 2, Paqueta at the wings, nah. I’d rather him play behind the 2 strikers if we go with 2 strikers option. He can create for Piatek and Cutrone to finish.
And of course, BigliaOut.

No, biglia and kessie have no skill or passing ability or 1 on 1 ability. We should play a 4312 or 4132.
Same back line. Defensive mid is baka, then have suso paqueta and samu. As the attacking mids and cutro and piatek up front. Or have the mid as baka samu and suso / hakan with paqueta behind the strikers

Gattuso benches Piatek but not Musachicco or Kessie who have played worse, smh

What are you talking about musachio has been solid throughout the season its defiently a better option than zapata or caldara that has been injured the whole season. And did you see our midfield when kessie didnt play. He might not be as good going forward but he can defend. I know that gattuso hasnt been perfect during these season but he has done wonders with these players and especially when we don’t fucking have a bench. And also we can’t play the same fucking 11 the whole season. Get that to your thick heads. I think everyone here is… Read more »

@kossymilan what are you talking about mate i havent missed a single game this season. I have been a milan fan since i was 6 years old and we were i live i have to get up at 5 in the morning to watch the games. Im pretty sure you watched the game today. I mean we played terrible but we didnt deserve that penalty. These little things can cause players to loose motivation especially when you have every one againts you.

there is no solid info that Piatek will not play

It seems that Gattuso will play 433 again. We don’t have competent winger. Suso is too slow as a winger. Hakan is not even a real winger

I hope cutrone playing ahead of piatek is a joke because if its true then it can only mean piatek is injured which is a damn shame or its simple case of favoritism in workplace like borivaldo situation.

I don’t think it can be termed as a favouritism mate.
Piatek has virtually started every match.
Midweek too.
So he – 1. needs a rest probably and 2. Cutrone deserves to get a chance seeing as Piatek is isolated and maybe can make a better impact off the bench when he is a bit fresher.

well, that might very well be whats on rino’s (limited) mind but that would be a major mistake because: 1) we can take the foot off the gas pedal when its lap 20th, or in milan case giornata 20th, to conserve fuel and tyres but doing it with 5 laps to go when everything’s on the line is idiotic. Especially not when direct rival roma has just overtaken milan in clasifica, and not when ur opponents are torino, the direct rival for 4th spot. See pep for example, hes not messing around with his starting line up, even when facing… Read more »

I don’t think Suso is slow but he is not kind of a player you would use to track back for the ball and build up, he just doesn’t have the fuel and that impacts his offensive play.

For example, I cannot forget Sarri’s 433 in Napoli. He made Callejon and Mertens looking like superstars on those wings.

It’s a matter of style and Rino’s style is just too rigid and tiring for our sort of players in my humble opinion.

Totally agreed his style of play is beyond understanding, way too defense minded and too slow to come out of the shell, at times I am lost what formation are we playing at all….see the team is worth for 4th spot and if you compare it with last term stats we are not that good either it’s just by our sheer luck lazio and Roma have dropped points and we didn’t capitalise on that…..like wise tonight I am not seeing us getting a win though my heart bleeds to say this but reality is a bitter pill to swallow….

Why not try benching Suso and play with Hakan behind Cutrone and Piatek???

I hate the rumors about Romagnoli. If Milan by any chance decide to sell Romagnoli, I want Gazidis Gone. This bullSh*t rumors are unacceptable. Selling the captain would be the worst decision ever. Every Milan fan will go against management if this stup*dass decision is taken. End of story. There is no way we should sell him even if we don’t qualify for UCL. The highest sanction would be banning us from next UCL or something, I would gladly take that instead of losing Romagnoli. This guy stayed and renewed his contract when the whole team and club was in… Read more »

Suso and mussachio again, what did caldara and samu do to covince this bastard, suso is stil underpeforming because he knows he wil always play, mussachio horror show against lazio was supposed to be a welcome call for caldara who was phenominal in that match, to the lineup…

Yes. Suso and Musacchio should be benched. Caldara isn’t match fit for 90mins so I think Zapata should start ahead of Musacchio. Samu Castillejo should start ahead of Suso.

Not sure why we are even using a 433 either formation and not a 4312. We need a win. Therefore Paquetá behind Cutrone and Piatek makes sense to me.

Can someone tell me how is Paquetá style of play be compared to Kaka? Kaka is centuries far better than him and I wonder why he got all the praises since his arrival m I have not seen anything meaningful in his playing which contributed towards the progress of the team but I have seen slow in every game, selflessness in the style of play, old modern patterns of play and etc I wonder why our players who claimed to be professionals couldn’t be bold enough to attack our opponents with superiority and domination The real milan I fell in… Read more »
