I think it was soheil who said that bennacer still got work to do in his defensive phase.
I agree with that.
I don’t like biglia either but i think whoever is the coach of milan will pick him as they look for his experience and defensive ability.
Once again, i know biglia isn’t that good, but compare the two, i can understand why coaches would pick biglia.
Biglia is the safest choice from this squad, you can’t just throw 11 youngster on the field.
But i do hope milan will get a better defensive midfielder on January, maybe get bakayoko back.

like i said, when bennacer won afcon and became mvp, he actually played as lcm or am, not dm. he, like tonali, cant defend well. just because he’s small and speak french doesnt mean he’s makelele 2.0. of course he can learn along the way but why should smart man like pioli gamble? bennacer should be discount xavi not yaya toure

Agree, at this point it’s better to play bennacer in paqueta position instead of biglia’s

Right side of milan looked terrible.
Conti can’t defend alone.
Paqueta seemed lost.
Suso added nothing.
I hope pioli will replace paqueta with bennacer, and suso replaced by piatek.
And what is wrong with referee against milan?
No card for dzeko? Really?

Ted

Despite a goal down, this team finally play football I’ve missed for past few seasons. They actually seem to know what they need to do. But they are still shaky, confidence is fragile. The right side of Conti, Paqueta and Suso is weak and they will exploit this even more in second half.

Anyway I am positive they can still turn this around.

Forza Milan!

Suso Should be dropped. I don’t even know what he’s doing in the field. Conti is playing like he forgot that he’s playing in defense. The whole right side is useless. I am not sure what happened to Paqueta, but it needs to be fixed really soon. We need Piatek on the field badly. I think we are lucky, because of Kessie’s and biglia’s stupidity, we could’ve gone 3 down by now if Roma could’ve finished properly. The goal we conceded, was only because Kessie was walking around instead of Marking Dzeko. I think we should sell Suso and Conti.… Read more »

Suso caused the 2 goals or what?

Did you even read my comment? Why are you focused only on Suso? Biglia and Conti didn’t start all of our games but Suso did. So yes, WE the Milan Fans that spend money on our beloved club, EXPECT BETTER FROM SUSO.

i cant watch the game.but seems again right side the problem..conti
and again paqueta
also biglia
if milan wants paqueta to shine seems it will not work in 433
4231 where paqueta playes acm would be best fit for him
but sadly we listened to gattuso and let go of bakayoko
now we dont have the midlefeld to make a 4231 work
one peace is missing in milans formation always

We always say who should the coach bench but we don’t have an option for who should play! Calabria is better than Conti but “Better” than conti is not such a high standard.

If we gonna play 4-3-3, RB, DM & RW is needed.

both Roma goals are from Milan’s own mistakes. I just dunno what to say. This team is either cursed or they are just utterly horrible. How can u leave Dzeko alone in a penalty zone? Free header! And Calabria’s pass!! Sometimes it just felt like a waste of time watching these games. In my country most Milan games are at 1.00am and above. I watched almost every game and they play like shit.

nick
Guest

Pioli defended Suso in the press conference. Well, I wonder if he still feels the same. Anyway, Milan Management is garbage, the coach is garbage and so are most of the players. How did we sign Leao instead of Christian Kouamé is beyond me. Leao played as a winger in Ligue 1.

I hope the rumors about Guardiola next season are true.

its has been years -when i used to drive true the whole town ,in order to sit in the only pure italian cafe in berlin to watch milan.i prefer the ‘highlights’ in todays times.
as it hurts too much watch a whole game.
specialy this clueless coaches wo never bench or at least take out suso.
but anyway.only god know if it ment to be for milan again gain top spot.
but if they are to continue like this…
im almost ashamed to write this-but we seems to have settled for a midtable club
horrible where we are

Are we done playing suso and biglia? Like seriously are we done? Our right backs who for some reason went from being good prospects are all of a sudden primavera worthy. Like are we kidding. Now 9 games of suso starting and he has STILL provided nothing. Pioli you’ve had two games to see him so J expect you to bench him. Wtf is going on here honestly.

Soheil

Uninterested display! The opposite of what we did last week. It’s like we forced our players to play for us!

With such a performance a good management would have fined the player a high percent of their wage but its Milan.

It’s disappointing. All that happens this year is even worse than last few years.

Most of Milan performance in recent years made me angry but tonight I’m really sad about what I saw.

CL is our of question.
Just bench every first teamers except Donna, Theo, Romagnoli and fill the rest of the team up with primavera.
Give them experiences in the first team and they can start to take over and maybe do well next season – that is unless we go bankrupt and start again from Serie D.

Jawadhaz

To be honest.
Milan played better then roma. Roma had luck, two mistakes. Other then that Milan was the better team.
Something needs to be done, the offence is not producing goals. There is lack of speed.
To be honest i would let leao play as left wing, and rebic as right wing. We need pace to slice the deffences. Look what happens when Theo makes a one two and slice trough. We need pace. We are decent every game. But can’t finish .

Really not surprising that Roma played just on Thursday and yet we make mistakes like we are the fatigued team. I hate when Milan coaches say “we have prepared all week and we know what to do on the field “ then come and do this! When Milan pull a Cutrone on Calabria and Conti in the transfer window, I don’t want to hear fans say, Calabria is home grown, Conti is the future bullshit. We talk about how young the team is, hence our mistakes, yet it’s the old players making the mistakes week in, week out. We must… Read more »

Conti is not a good player and he never will be. I’ve never seen him have a good game in a Milan shirt. The quality is just simply not there. Calabria is better but very inconsistent. Wouldn’t be sad to see either of those two go for a quality right back.

Oh man … the season is officially screwed. I want to kick the f’ing tv. Not a bad performance from Milan offensively, especially in the first half, but what disastrous performance in terms of defense. Saint Donna saved us from a massacre, with so many silly mistakes in the back. It started with Kessie’s batshit crazy dribble in our own box, Conti’s horrendous cover throughout, Kessie losing Dzeko on the first goal, Calabria’s ridiculous pass in the second goal, and the list goes on. Terrible terrible schoolyard mistakes. A proper RB seems to be a priority now, but I think… Read more »

I ain’t gonna start blaming pioli cause giampaolo got us into the mess and left us in a tragedy. Pioli made the right subs by taking out Conti and biglia. But now is where I need to see players like biglia and suso sit. You’ve seen how poor they are in two games now make them sit. The fjnny thing is that this is probably the worst start I’ve seen as a milan fan but it’s not too late to turn our fortunes around. Although I’m not anxious to see. This has been horrid

Raven
Guest
Raven

No, Giampaolo isn’t the one to blame, even though he used our players as his scapegoat.

The one to blame is Elliot, he decided that Rino was a problem. The coach was one of the many upgradeable aspect in Milan. But it wasn’t a smart move as the players loved him and getting us results.

And bliv me i haven’t played soccer for over 3yrs but am still better than kessie when it comes to passing d ball

Disasterous defensive display , leave dzeko unmarked fuck me, our minds are somewhere else .

Just so you know Milan extended Calabria’s contract and raised his salary from 1.8m – 2m. I am guessing that they are afraid to announce it given his poor performance.

Rossi

No just lucky for Roma and Lazio to have such a bad season last time. This team played the same last year as well especialy at the end its like they forgot how to pass and im sure almost two years of neglecting the technical aspect of the game by Gatusso took its toll at the end. But no doubt good number of this players are not for Milan no matter who is the coach.

nick
Guest

I’ve said it many times that it was Bakayoko who saved our season under Gattuso. If he didn’t play instead of Biglia we would not have finished 5th.

It was a stroke of luck due to Biglia’s injuries why Bakayoko played and became our best player last season.

This management is just as stupid as mirabelli and Fassone. They didn’t sign Deulofeu after an amazing loan spell and Maldini and Boban made the same dumb decision with Bakayoko.

Baresis Dream
Guest
Baresis Dream

Bakayoko is missed, no doubt Nick. 40 mil is too much for him, I think 20-25 is fair for everyone, but seeing that we didn’t get anyone in return … well, I guess throwing away 15 mil is better than our current situation.

Rossi
Guest
Rossi

Didnt even finnished reading your comment and i wanted to mention Delofeou as well, same mistake as with Bakayoko. There is a reason why Bakayoko is worth 40mil and Biglia is like 13mil, obviously our menagment dosen’t get this things.

It was luck that Biblia got injured and that’s why the clueless gave Bakayoko minutes?

FFS, fanatical ideas are disgusting, its not that Gattuso did a good job, was Bakayoko the savior.

Well why in the name of Fk Gazidis Bovan and Maldini didn’t hire a regista now that everyone says Bennacer is a mezzala? Giampaolo’s formation required 2 central mid a regista and a trequartista?

What are we talking about?

So f….ing Biglia is making error after error, the same Conti and Calabria and Suso is a shadow of the player from the past. Leao is too young, sometimes he’s looking like a chicken headless, Kessie is a joke of player, it’s impossible to play with those players ! Pioli has to change Biglia from midfield and will be ok. Calhanoglu, Theo and Donnarumma were the only players who showed something. If u don;t win against Lecce and against a decimated Roma you are weak enough !

Couldn’t watch the game, but we are stuck with Pioli and this team at least until January, I would say patience is needed as our problem is more psychological than technical( referring on the field, because at managerial we are fucked).
