After the first half I have to say that Suso is too good to be sold, not just because he scored again from free kick, but he shows he can be our trequartista, he’s good and he deserves to stay ! I also have to congratulate Biglia and Calhanoglu for their disponibility, they were alive and are very important there in midfield. I didn’t like Krunic, he needs to recover quick after his injury altough he doesn’t have any chance to start in front of Kessie ! Gabbia, Romagnoli and Donna didn’t have any problem until now, and RR and… Read more »

Alexmilan this is friendly game we can’t play 100% to avoid injuries so don’t judge our players for nothing

I didn’t judge, I said what I have seen. And I have seen that Krunic and Musacchio played badly ! And Giampaolo is seeing this ! Today Borini >>>>> Krunic as CM and this is not ok because Krunic is the midfielder and Borini is the striker !

Alexmilan, I don’t agree with you on the part about Musacchio playing badly, and I honestly think that he gets a lot of unfair criticism levelled at him on this blog. In my humble opinion, Samu had the worst game of all the players.

except he only shows up against weak opponents but goes completely missing in big games against juventus, lazio, roma, napoli, etc. WE NEED TO SELL HIM NOW for a reasonable price.

If I was a millionaire, I would buy Borini and make him my garner just to free Milan off him.

Where is the credit for Leao in that case? The guy was Amazing. He looked like Mbappe in his stride and attacking mindset. He looked dangerous whenever he had the ball at his feet. This is what is called URGENCY. Suso doesn’t have it. This is how you create faster attacking build up plays to break down defences. This what true potential world class players do every Sunday. This is how you make your team mates better when you are on or off the ball. And when the Dude is off the ball he is looking to run diagonally like… Read more »

I know, it’s always worrying when coaches make players like Borini captain. At least it was just a friendly, unlike Zapata last season.

Don’t forget we have seen our full squad on the pitch at the same time. I’m sure it will be different once all the starting 11 players are on the field together.

I would have preferred to Piatek and Leo together with Suso behind them and Paquetá as the mezzala in the 1st half.

Hold on cow boy! That will probably be the formation when the season starts. Paqueta will play as a Mazzella. I agree with Giampaolo on that one. He would be better in that position because the Brazillian likes playing wide like Seedorf. Plus he is a fighter with determination, technique, strong mentality that inspire the team. So we need people like Paqueta in the Middle. As an AM an alternative to Zaracchio would be Olmo. Correa isn’t really a natural Am.

Positive signals from Borini, Leao, Conti and Jack. Excellent Paqueta ! Piatek still doesn’t score but he’s alive ! The worst player on the pitch in the second half is Musacchio

I’m pretty sure that at the game against Udinese, Milan will be like this Donna – RR, Roma, Gabbia ( Duarte ), Calabria – Biglia ( Bennacer ), Paqueta, Kessie – Suso – Castillejo ( Leao ), Piatek. After this game, I am sure that Musacchio has fallen in the hierarchy. Biglia played too well for Bennacer to be able to recover his position until 25 when it’s the first game. Also for Leao, but it’s also possible to see both Bennacer and Leao starters against Udine ! And it’s possible after Borini’s performances as CM that Giampaolo can think… Read more »

Not a bad match. From what I saw it is clear Suso will be our starting trequartista with Bonaventura as a backup. Piatek will be partnered with Correa with Leo as the backup striker. Good assist by Leo but he needs to work on his shooting. He should’ve scored from Bonaventura sitter or at least force a save from the keeper. Smh Krunic will definitely be on the bench as Kessié will take his usual spot. Bennacer will be our holding midfielder with Biglia as a backup. A good backup I might add because Biglia is looking like his old… Read more »

Maldini has qualities, has executions, has technique, but he needs to become faster and stronger, he can play trequartista or second striker, positions very important for Giampaolo and I am sure he will succeed in the first team soon, but he is not ready yet right now ! Gabbia is good, Brescianini grew up a lot last year in Primavera, is something like Ambrosini, more technical and less agressive ! In my oppinion, Pobega is better than Brescianini, but Giampaolo knows what he’s doing. In my oppinion, Calhanoglu is better than Jack as a trequartista, he should be the first… Read more »

composure.

Imo i prefer calhanoglu plays in the midfield rather than in trequarista role. He actually really help a lot in defense. He tracks back and doesn’t shy away to get the ball from the opponent. I think that’s why giampaolo tried him in the regista role

I don’t know why nor Hakan nor Paquetta were given a chance at the number 10. I know I sound like a broken record at this point, but Suso in that position is a bad idea imo. Better play him as a SS/RW next to Piatek.

Leo looked good except for his shooting. He doesn’t have composure in front of goal from what I saw today. But he would make a good 2nd striker as he creates chances for assists. If he works on his shooting he will be lethal.

If Milan sign Correa then it will definitely be Piatek-Correa with Suso behind them. Correa is definitely a must buy especially after watching him against Juventus today. Really good 2nd striker.

After playing in 8 positions, we finally find a place for Borini!! (It would be fun watching him running around in midfield!)

lol… But then again, he hasn’t played as a goalkeeper yet so we can’t be certain this is his best position.

Good performance, but still not lethal enough..
The opponent also played a good possession football, surprisingly.

I read a news that if milan fail to get correa they will try to get ante rebic from Eintracht Frankfurt. His price is around 40m.
What do you guys think of him?
