@soheil, I really do not like this pessimism you are spreading here. There might tiny truth in your lamentations but when the truth is over stretched it becomes a lie. Let’s wait till season proper starts before your continuous ranting.

I agree. Not sure why some people are so negative when we haven’t seen our full starting 11 players on the pitch. Castillejo, Borini, Calhanoglu and Biglia will most likely not be starters.

More players will also arrive and some will leave like Castillejo who is definitely no 2nd striker.

@O’Gabbs The only person telling lies here is you. Like a liar who claims to be telling the truth. The game said it all. Milan were awful in the first half. The last 20 minutes were the only positive just after Kessie came in and Borini came out. O’Gabb you are one of those fans who keep lying to themselves which doesn’t help the team. 5 years going without CL.

Big Dog, I don’t come here to seek relevance. I only spoke my mind without sounding bitter. I have been following Milan for almost 4 decades and my sons are Milan fans as well so, I know what grande Milan is all about. All, I said is that this Milan is still work in process. Just learn to counter opinion constructively and not make fool of yourself by insulting people who might be old enough to parent you.

Then you are now accusing me for insulting you just because I expressed myself in a word of fact. In that case show me the insult aimed at you because I can’t see any. I found your accusation another lie that is just plain to see. I rest my case!

Unfortunately, primo tempo DELUDENTE ! Bad bad bad, this is not football or more exactly is Gattuso’s style. For the last repetition before the start it was an unacceptable attitude ! Castillejo in my oppinion is not good as second striker neither as RW ! Suso was weak, Borini the same, RR is good just in defence ( Theo, come back quickly ), Piatek doesn’t have usable balls ! Calhanoglu is not tupeist. I didn’t like what I’ve seen in the first half !

Is giampaolo trying to show milan’s weakness to the management?
Because that is the only reason i can think of why he keeps playing castilejo.
It seems to me he’s screaming “please sign me a second striker?!”
I don’t mean to be unfair to castilejo since he is not a second striker to begin with but man he needs to go

The Big Dog
Guest
The Big Dog

@Lando. I wish that was the case. But I don’t think so because he has been playing Borini, Musacchio and Castillejo from day one. Let’s just hope he has realized that Borini and Castillejo are no good.

Lando
Guest

well the other reason i can think of for that is that milan try to lure other clubs to buy samu and borini, sadly with their performances i doubt any club would be interested.
the other problem i have is going to milan first match of serie a they haven’t tried bennacer at all while kessie, duarte, leao only got a couple of minutes of play

Final whistle ! Mediocrity, midtable team, no ambition and some weird decisions of Giampaolo that make me wonder if this ” master ” of coaching really knows what he’s doing. The team looked better with Andre Silva replacing Castillejo ! Why insisting with Castillejo, Castillejo played badly even last year as RW ( his main position ), when Rino gave to him a lot of chances, so why insisting with Castillejo ? Suso played badly until 60 minute when he totally disappeared from the pitch ! Why keeping him until the end of the game, why mister ? Mister, if… Read more »

Yip, and look at our starting midfield… Regista who has flopped or been injured since he arrived and looks past playing three games in a row. An awful winger / striker / whatever the heck he actually is supposed to be, plonked into the middle as there is no position for him, who should be nowhere near a Milan starting eleven. He may turn out to be the joker alright – I’m sure I’ll be finding it hilarious if he starts half our games and we finish fifth. At least Cana has talent.

You nailed it Alex. I am also suspecting that Giampaolo has no clue. Yeah after the game against Feronikeli he said that Paqueta and Leao were tactically undisciplined. I was angered by that statement . But I didn’t really know what he meant. Then he benched Paqueta against Cesena and Leao was no where to be found. And after the game against Cesena he said that Romagnoli and Musacchio give him guarantees. Romagnoli? Yes. Musacchio? No. He also said that he will have a further look at Bennacer before he makes a decision. Seriously? To be reasonable according to Giampaolo… Read more »

@the big dog, exactly, I’m starting to realize the problem with all the coaches we have been hiring. All of them have come from either being waaaay to experienced or coaching small teams. G comes from coaching small teams and is now awe struck by players better than his relegated team. He did not pay attention to Milan over the years. If he did he would know suso is ridiculously inconsistent. Musaccio should not be starting, borini, biglia and hakan are not starters,and piatek is not good with out a real forward playing next to him. Also preseason is also… Read more »

@Nathan. Interesting take. That could be it. Based you point Giampaolo has not been paying attention to Milan over the years otherwise he would know those issues. Finally someone who understands that Suso is big problem. Lets hope Giampaolo realises the facts.

Nathan Graegin
Guest
Nathan Graegin

@big dog, this is the only logical reason behind the coach doing what he’s done. Suso needs to be sold for someone more consistent. Hakan, biglia, Silva and castellejo all need to go. We need more speed and quickness in midfield. Look at the top teams. Their mids are very quick/fast with skill. Our scouts need to keep this in mind. And in regards to youth players. Don’t sell the ones that are clearly good enough to damn near start or at least be immediate back up. I wish we kept Leo bc he knew we needed speed. We were… Read more »

This is about as bad as it gets.. and I only saw the second half… f**kin’ hell that was a poor performance. I hope it spurs the management into action: Piątek has been utterly isolated all pre-season, while Castillejo and Silva are not Milan material. The only positive I could draw from it is that we’re not commencing the season having won some meaningless ICC game versus Man City or Real Madrid and delude ourselves that everything is just fine.

Nathan Graegin
Guest

That’s what happens when you play with only 1 real striker. Support strikers are a stupid idea. If piatek isn’t scoring like he hasn’t been for a few months now, then we get skewed bc the other barely get goals

Shows us again what most of us already knew, the defence is good and isn’t a real problem (apart from a few tweaks). We need real quality in midfield, an actual ACM / No.10, not someone shoehorned in who disappears in half the games anyway, and more support up front.

Nathan Graegin
Guest

Idc what anyone says, we are simply not ready. I don’t want to hear nothing about a full squad, our defense is our main except Theo, hakan and suso and piatek will be starting to. Piatek has been straight garbage since his hot streak ended in like late feb/March. No link up play, no runs in behind the defense. He’s already been figured out. Suso hasn’t been bad but today he showed the inconsistent side. Even with our starting 11 we will play to slow. Our mids are STILL to slow. You can’t high press with slow players plain and… Read more »

It’s a practice match, don’t read too much into it. But if anyone thinks we are going to hit the ground running with a new formation, playing style, and 4-5 new faces in the lineup, should expect disappointment. Best case scenario is that we start gelling within a couple of months or so, and our direct competitors blunder in the meantime. 4th place as usual very hard, probably harder than last year.

Verdict: Poor performance clearly. Not sure why Castellijo got so much playing time but he clearly didn’t do anything to convince anyone that he is capable of playing as a 2nd striker. Andre Silva was more effective in 10mins than Castillejo was all preseason. Biglia, Castellijo and Borini were extremely poor. None of them will be starters though. Giampaolo was right to sub Biglia and play Calhanoglu as a DM. He’s more convincing than Biglia and should be the backup for Bennacer along with Brescianini who reminds me of Albertini. My main issue: Castellijo should have been subbed earlier as… Read more »

I got the joke, still trying to catch my breath from all the laughter … anyways, my point was that Gatusso was never Milan’s main problem, it was the squad. I think Giampaolo is better than Gatusso as he’s more experienced, but with a team of 11 “prospects” or “potential stars in the future” you don’t get ahead in seria a. We need a squad good enough for any moron to take us to the champions league. But mgmt is thinking more like an investment bank, than a sports organization (compare our transfer strategy to Inter).

Yo Dejan, if Gattuso was clueless and Boban-Maldini build the team Giampaolo asked, then I’m asking 18 more points from Giampaolo’s team, easy task right? Gattuso’s incompetence led the team without a win for two months so 18 points is almost a must. Easy those 18 points would put us in the fight for scudetto, statically speaking. At leas 3 more wins would put us in the fight for the second place. So?

Totally agree dude. I dont understand how ppl wpuld think that the coach would use borini and castillejo as our starters. Obviously he is preparing the guys in their new position for backup not for starters. And some players are not that fit and a risk to play against cesena who played very rough.

Really hope to see bonaventura in the line up soon though. He can be very crucial for us

I watched the whole game. The whole long 90 minutes of it. What I saw was a few combinational tactics here and there, some missed passes, lots of fouls and free kicks wasted. Not a good link between midfield and forwards. Susso is not built for AM. Castillejo is not a SS. Borini and Biglia should never start. Kessie has to start every game on the right side. Leao has to start SS. Paqueta as LCM. We need to buy a capable proven AM. Overall we are not ready for serie A yet. I hope other teams will drop points… Read more »

Cesena was playing their hearts out today and I appreciate that from them because it was a good test for Milan.

The market is still open, but its worrying the lack of interest that Silva, Castillejo. As if changing coaches and a new formation isn’t hard enough missing a trequartista and replacement for Piatek can be the difference between CL and EL.

Quagliarella compared to any of our strikers in last almost ten years, is like saying Silva is like Ronaldo.

Who in current ACM roster is good enough to be able to play with those guys. Nobody at all.

I know I am not the coach, but there is no way Castilejo should be SS. He is just not cut out for it.
Doesn’t create anything, can’t hold up play… doesn’t make runs into the box that creates space for Piatek.
The only thing he is good for is high pressing. Also he dives too much
