What are your guys thoughts between Gasperini or Allegri as Milan coach? Gasperini plays the most attractive football in serie A and Atalanta has the most goals scored this season.

There has also been contact between gadzidis and Allegri and I’m not sure how to react to that

If we qualify I would love for Gasperini to come in. Also if Leonardo does move to the Brazilian national team I think an ideal candidate to replace him would be Kaka.

45 minutes, and the results are good so far – Milan leading, Atalanta and Inter at a draw. But the next 45 minutes is the real drama, and everything can change. But at least we look quite good.

I have to admit I’m biting my nails off over here; too much pressure. Forza Milan.

Not looking good for Milan, Berardi got a red card putting Sassulo down to ten men and Inter hasn’t scored only because of the heroics of Dragowski in goal, not to mention Milan are looking a bit shaky.

UCL or no UCL, this amount of stress after spending 500m in two years is not acceptable. We should get rid of anyone who is responsible for this situation (Rino, Leo, Maldini).

In the game with Liverpool it was Gattuso who made an unessesery penalty on Gerard for 3-3, he was awayes bad under pressure and this team just reflects that.

So now guys lets shrug it off and move on.
Sack Gattusso .
Monto, mauri, berto, out!!!
Sell Kessie, borini, casti,calha, suso is demanding 6m a yr, sell him. Clear up the room and let an experienced class A coach come in. No de Zerbi, EDF, Giampaolo… Jorges jesus is free, jardem monaco, tuchel,Sarri, . Hope for a good mercato. See you next season guys!

It still feels like I am dreaming..how Gattuso managed not to qualify for this year league I still don’t know….we been 3rd and few games left…Gattuso you’re a goat and a goat u will always remain..you’re the most useless coach I ever knew and I hope you never find a club for coaching again!!

Man, this just hurts.
Milan certainly did not get any luck tonight from Empoli match. And Inter will go trot into CL again next season (only to get dumped out in the group stage again).
Thank you everyone for a nerve wracking season though.
I hope if players are sold to balance the books, then Kessie, Hakan and Suso are sold. Should keep hold of Donna, Roma, Calabria and Cutrone as the core.
Good luck everyone on this blog too, see you all in the next season.
Forza Milan

I can’t believe it. We had it in our own hands and let it slipped away with poor results against Udinese, Sampdoria and Torino. Another disappointing season 🙁 Some heads should roll for this and at this point I don’t care who. Gazidis can get rid of Gattuso, Leonardo and Maldini for all I care. Luis Campos from Lille is one of the best sporting directors out there and he’s the man that built Monaco Ligue 1 winning team with Mbappe. He also built a strong Lille team that finished 2nd in Ligue 1 this season. A team that barely… Read more »

Reality check for Milan. They were sitting on the 3rd spot already but just after, they’ve lost or drew some crucial matches against weak teams. They should consider themselves very lucky since Atalanta, Lazio, Fiorentina and Roma were all losing points the same time as Milan. If not for that luck Milan would now play qualifiers for Europe League in that 7th/8th spot

Now I wait and see what sort of sacrifice this failure to qualify for CL will bring to Milan

4th time in the last six years AC Milan have failed to qualify for Champions League. The owners badly need to invest money into the squad.

Whaaaaaaaat? Guttuso wasn’t good enough to get us into the Champions League? I did not see that one coming… At least this means there’s a slim chance Gazidis and co might finally wake up and sack him.

What a heartbreak of a season. I have a feeling we’re in huge trouble this summer. Hopefully we don’t sell key players.

Prob have a lot more to say but for now firstly I want to thank gattuso. But I don’t see him staying. I don’t know what to think right now.

Players are going to be sold, others brought in. Are they gonna be better than what we have? Will they bring us into the Champions League?

That pained me so hard today to not see them make it in.

Arrivederci Gattuso. Grazie! If Milan bring in Luis Campos from Lille as sporting director he can make Milan competitive without spending big. He has a lot of scouts working for him and he’s very good at choosing good young players like Mbappe, Bernardo Silva, Thomas Lamar, and Nicholas Pepe to name a few. He’s also good at spotting talented coaches like Jardim and Christophe Galtier. I believe Gazidis is already making changes behind the scene as we speak to replace Leonardo and Gattuso. Since we will most likely get sanctioned by UEFA we see some big players leave like Donnarumma,… Read more »

Gattuso quote, I don’t know how milan will improve on the 68 points this season, it will be difficult. I know 5 people in the world that could, Wenger, pochettino, sarri, conte, jardim, oh wait all the coaches that beat us to the cl this year. Wow this guy is clearly the loser mentality type. So glad this season is over. Management better get it right.

Totally agree on Plizzari. Milan should cash in on Donnarumma and make Reina our stater with Plizzari as a backup. We should definitely sell greedy Suso who has the nerve to request a pay increase when he couldn’t lead the team to CL qualification. Calhanoglu should be sold as well.

Kessie needs a good coach to bring the best out of him so we shouldn’t consider selling Kessié by any means.
