Castillejo is really bad . He just gives the ball away without creating anything every time he gets the ball

I guess and hope he was starter just to make possible last min sell…..otherwise I think Giampaolo is stupid to play him as a starter

Rafael Leao must have two left foot. Maybe that’s the reason why Castellijo and Borini are ahead of him in the team selection.

Giampaolo is guilty for what we are forced to see. Horrible performance, you can’t play like that game by game, it’s obvious that something is not ok in this Milan ! We play like shit since the game against Cesena

Why do these managers keep on playing sh#t players when we have more talented guys on bench! I’m so frustrated!!!!! But 3 points against weak team is positive I suppose. Cut the bs, stop complicating things, play 4231, or 442 with leao and bono on left f#ks sake.

An improvement that could have been disappointing is no improvement at all. Milan got lucky. Once again I see the Suso dilemma that is like a curse on Milan. He was lazy and cheating when his team mates like Castillejo were bursting their buns. I pity Milan! Too bad some fans don’t understand football otherwise they would have realised that the problem just like the management knew before our clueless coach begged them to let Suso. stay. This why We could have won the game by at least 3-0 without tension. But with Suso you either win with him involved… Read more »

In the limited time he had, paqueta showed he needs to be played as a trequartista

We played today 15 minutes in the start of the game and 6 minutes in the final of the game where we could score at least 5 goals, Piatek 3, Kessie and Paqueta. But the rest of the game was horrible, if the situation won’t change we will have a lot of frustrations in this start of the season ! Something is not good

@Alexmilan. Once again you judge correctly. Milan has to weak a mentality. As Milan should have buried the game a lot sooner but made life difficult for themselves
Because they are bad at reading the stages of the game psychologically. I just wish Gattuso had stayed he was improving drastically. And more importantly he figured Suso out at the end when he was benched times a few times.

Definitely NOT an impressive win. Only thing impressive today was Bennacer.

Castillejo was an eye soar today. Really tired of seeing him on the pitch.

Not sure why he even played, he is so poor. I guess some other players aren’t fully fit yet so no other choice?

Very unconvincing win.
There was a little more edge after the introduction of Piatek and Paqueta. Their goalkeeper was brilliant to save those.
But a lot more improvement is needed. With this level of ‘attacking threat’ in this performance, Europa place would be an over-achievement.
Yet, this is only the second match. So hope after the break we will play better.

The only change in the system was Castileho playing as an AM and Suso as a SS/RW , Paqueta did more as a AM in 10 min then Castileho in all game, i dont get it why is Giampaolo so despertly trying to find place in the starting 11 for Catileho he was brought as a back up RW never a starter.. Btw how the heck was that not a goal, the ball clearly crossed the line even the commentator said, then on the animation VAR it showed that it didnt lol, just shows how easy VAR can be misused.

As stated above, line cameras are showing you an animation not an actual footage, so you are trusting an edited animation and not your own eyes. Any one who have just a bit experience with this or even electronics and software in general knows how easy its to manipulate this things.

A win is a win, most important is those 3 points…..seems we r 5-0 up in last 10min but bad luck for Paqueta,Piatek n kessei….. Don’t wanna see Samu n Borini…..Suso should give up his selfish attitude…..Congrats Milan

– Last game few players, played out of position. this game all the players were confused about how they should play. – the only reason we created opportunities is because Brescia played an open football. – we played with two right wingers today. add Kessie and Calabria to the mix so you get how stupid such a tactic could be. – We tried so many of this experiments previous seasons. No kessie can’t attack. No suso can’t be our only attacking threat. Samu can’t play false 9 &… – Sorry but it’s just another season with coaches experimenting with our… Read more »

Why acmilan have to buy a player who’s not ready to play , sit on the bench while the old players who was never good playing

Yeah Sohiel, I admit my expectations are low at this point. We need to collect the points, then start playing well.

Let’s hope the international break gives them time to improve. I can’t wait to see Theo back, he is one player who can really run up the field with the ball and dominate. I think Rodríguez will have hard time starting when Theo is back. Piatek showed signs of his own self but was little unlucky today – not worried about him at all but he needs more service. Paqueta was excellent. Samu should not play, less so start the game. Not sue what Gianpaulo is thinking. And Borini – I am lost for words here.

Milan spent 35m on Leao only for him to sit on the bench for players like Castillejo and Borini. The issue with this club has always been the people in top management. No wonder we couldn’t sell Andre Silva because we paid 35m for him only for Montella and Gattuso to leave on the bench and not use him period. Smh. Now they doing the same shit with Leao. If I was Maldini I would demand that the coach play Leao in every game. Why invest that kind of money on a player and have him sit on the bench… Read more »

Yeah, absolutely ! But Leao will play soon, I think after the national teams break we will come back to the 4-3-1-2 and Leao will battle with Andre Silva for the second striker. Andre deserves much more time on the pitch, because he’s really good ! This 4-3-2-1 will help Suso to accomodate easier with the trequartista role. If he will insist with this system Leao can’t play !

Still this insistence on playing Suso where he’s at his worst?

alexmilan
Guest
alexmilan

Playing in 4-3-2-1 Suso will play RW and AM during the game and will slowly assimilate the role of AM, step by step, he will have more freedom on the pitch. Here it was smart Giampaolo, also with Andre who is more involved in the schemes of our playing than Piatek who is a letal finisher ( not today )

The game had its ups and downs , but the Last 10 min made it clear : Paqueta is a starter , Casti is even worse than Borini , Giampaolo must start figuring his work out asap. Piatek is just unlucky. There is no n.9 curse or something but when people talk about you alot you start feeeling the pressure and that makes it harder. When Pato talked about Cutrone in his first season , he said that first seasons are always easier because defenders don’t know you nor your style , but the 2nd the real game begins since… Read more »

Outside of scoring. Silva looks better than piatek. His movement is miles better. Imagine if he can get back to scoring. He literally has everything but his confidence in front of goal. Again piatek is missing easy chances. Good thing we got rid of cutrone with all our misfiring forwards. Paqueta needs to start and Jesus why can’t we just play leao. Castellejo is such a burden in attack. Our mid 3 should be bonna kessie and bennaser and the 2 behind the forwards should be paqueta and leao with honestly Silva up top until piatek decides he remembers how… Read more »

Piatek played better in 10 minutes (in his natural position). Silva and Piatek are completely different players. It’s line comparing Shevchenko and Inzaghi

Nathan Graegin

I disagree, Silva was good in build up play. Piatek looked good bc of how open the game got with Brescia tryin to score. Piatek missed 2 chances inside the 6 yard box so I wouldn’t say he played better. He had better chances and missed. Plus I was basing my comparison on what 2 misfiring forwards bring to the game. And I think everyone agrees Silva’s movement outside the box and link up play is better. If piatek is not getting the ball in the box, he’s next to useless

Silva is better with the ball piatek know how to take a chance they are different

We looked slow and it’s like we wanted them to equalise
Andre silva was impressive and should get more chances whilst Suso proved the doubters wrong

Everyone sees it. Castillejo is not cut for Milan. Paqueta needs to start. But Mr. Clueless has to insist on Borini and Castillejo. At least Lord Kebab got a goal this time. We are still very weak at attack.
