Cant belive he is starting Biglia instead of Baka just because he was late for tranning one time. This can cost us the win and the season. I hope Biglia will have one of his good games, but Bologna have some fast players and Biglia always have problems with those types, so lets just hope for the best.

Gattuso should fucking leave this club, fucking retard. At this stage of trying to get to champions league, you are still holding a grudge not minding if we loose. Why on earth is Mauri coming in for Biglia when you have Bakayoko. You put Mauri who hasn’t played for a long time just because you wanna be stupid. I can’t, I just can’t wait for all the dead weight to leave. FORZA MILAN

The only time Suso scores in months is when he’s in The center of the midfield.

When will we ever learn: Suso plays better as an attacking central mid rather than right wing

Yes Bakayoko needs to leave. No matter what happens, when coach tells you to warm up, YOU WARM UP Without a word. Arrogance as such has no place in Milan. Baka didn’t just disrespect Rino, Baka didn’t just disrespect Milan Manager, he disrespected Milan by telling his coach to fu*k Off when Milan needed him on the field.

Whenever Milan lost they would say it is Gattuso. Our players are so indiscipline. Just imagine, Paquetá almost mada us to lose this match !

Entertaining game. You can tell the team is on the edge. Hard fought victory. Mauri came in after all that and played decent so well done. Discipline in this team is lacking and I can’t believe it when it’s a team coached by gattuso. Borini isn’t the most talented person but he has heart and discipline. I’ll take him over a pre Madonna like bakayoko any day. Bakayoko in my book should never play for this team again. Players these days think they can do what they want so let him pack his bags now.

Who will play the midfield now?

Ink
Guest

If Bakayoko is unprofessional, I will say he has frozen himself out. And he should go back to Chelsea.

Mauri and Kessie could form 2 man mid.
Bresciniani or Torrasi could be promoted to back up for one match.

Samu/Borini and Suso takes the wide roles with two strikers up front.

And Tsajoud + Maldini on bench to back up or substitute.

You are ridiculous. Fans like you INK have no sense what’s so ever and won’t mind watching the club burn so long as your ego is in tact right? This is the last few must win games of the season. I don’t care if you don’t want to get champions league next season but I do. Your thoughts do not define milan. If milan lose any of the remaining games because of this I hope gattuso never sees the front door of this club again.

Some fans on here are like battered housewives.

It’s fans like INK they ruin this site. They don’t care what happens to the club so they say what they want. Fans like them have no ambition to see milan come back so they say what they think a fan should do. But luckily for us they are a minority and we are the majority even on the blog.

And I guess you would blame the attitude of the squad to Gattuso. Kessie forgot how to make a throw-in and Paqueta hits the referee.

Remember Mihajlovic, he was lifting the team but then Silvio said, “this is the worst Milan I’ve ever seen”, and players got through depression like this season after that defeat against Inter.

Leonardo basically said that we have no transfer money for the summer unless CL is achieved (meaning we have no transfer money). Looks like we maxed out on Paquetta and Piatek in January. So a reshuffle of the squad seems to be on the way, where we cash out on players where it’s possible. Three most likely candidates imo are Suso, Hakan, and A. Silva, but Kessie, RicRod, and even St Donna could also be on the table.

@Milan10. Exactly Suso despite not performing to his best I doubt others are doing much better and an inform Suso can’t be compared to Calha and others he’s simply our biggest threat .He will be among the last players i would consider selling as 45m will not get us a much better attacker. He’s currently not doing that well and so the rest of our attackers. It’s ok to criticize him but getting rid of him is a bit like trying to sell Piatek because he’s currently not scoring.

Honestly if Gattuso makes Bakayoko go back to Chelsea they should fire him.
Bakayoko has been the most improved signing we’ve got. Biglia is most likely going to be sold, and Mauri is simply not MIlan level.

Milan will send him away not only Rino who was really fond of the player they had a certain father-son relation which Bakayoko openly admited in press
