No Jack no party! Piatek needs to be deleted from this team! He’s so poor. This should be the last time Rebic even makes the substitution list.

wtf rebic?! had it been gullit, he wouldve headed the ball into the net so hard it wouldve bounced back out.
the tactics and strategy are finally there but the quality of the squad is so piss poor

Why does this team always like to pass the ball backwards?? They always break a counter attack and pass the ball back for no damn reason. And btw we are playing with one man down cos Rebic is clearly injured and struggling and yet Pioli is risking him in the game. Bonaventura would prefer Leao in the CF position cos that’s the only striker we have that can hold up play and play the one two passes with him cos apart from being a poacher, piatek can’t do shit. He can’t even trap the ball. Smh. I need more sense… Read more »

Milan’s backline caught more than once this half by surprise, missing the offside. Bad coordination overall. Offensively, Jack is the only one trying anything, and Rebic is basically playing injured (wtf!!!). Krunic and Paquetta decent, but we except more especially from the latter. Biglia to Insigne is like paper to fire; completely absimal cover although decent organization from the back. But given Conti contributes absolutely nothing to attack, we need someone to replace Rebic and pick that side up.

When whole team plays for the goal but the one who should mostly is not, then you have a problem.

Leao for Piatek

I said it last year that he looks like a one season wonder cause most of his goals came from lucky rebounds…he was just making tap ins nothing spectacular, now when his confidence is low not even the tap ins work, waste of money should have kept Cutrone.

I totally disagree with that statement on Piatek. Is higuain weak too?

Piatek is suffering from a very poor midfield that lacks creativity.

The same thing happened to Higuain who is now back to top form at Juventus.

Milan is poorly built. We have no creativity in midfield. Our midfield also doesn’t contribute to goals.

Higuan was 10 times better than Piatek in Milan, when he didnt scored he assisted, was runing back trying to help the team build etc also Higuan had back injury and was 30 yet he runed more than this 24 year old. Piatek got plenty of service in the last couple of games but he missed easy headers all the time, even when there is no one in front of him he cant run for 10meters with the ball to get in a better shooting position whos fault is that ? No mid or wingers can give you easy tap… Read more »

I think biglia was good enough, I certainly can say he’s not a 90mins player because of his age, I wonder why does Kessié make mistake?

He was decent in the first half, but we were lucky not to concede 3 goals because of his elementary mistakes.

Napoli was lucky too that they made couple of mistakes but we couldn’t make it a goal.. this is football you make mistake opponent probably scores .. as I said biglia is a decent half time player at max, pioli realized immediately.. I’m really happy with the performance considering last three matches against top teams while team was broken before; the rest of matches remain till half season, will show our power with pioli!!

Not a bad result for us considering our current form and missing players, although all and all this was a mediocre display of football overall against really low moral Napoli. We are a broken team at this point, in spirit and in standings, and so not loosing is maybe the best we can hope for against Napoli. In general really lukewarm performance by us, with only Donna, Jack, and perhaps Krunic worth mentioning. Piatek was particularly weak, but he had Kulibaly at his best against him. Biglia also really really weak in defense, and Theo’s side was as usual quite… Read more »

I keep seeing Allegri at our games. This was the only positive result today. Honorable mention goes out to Bonaventura and Donnarumma. This team is poorly built and we are worst than last season. So many players need to be shipped out.

Not sure what is happening to Piatek but the club is putting too much pressure on him.

Just looked at Higuain form now compared to when he was in Milan? We don’t have enough creativity in midfield to support our strikers. Smh

Clearly we can see that we need to buy players. Piatek is useless if he doesn’t get services. There is no point keeping him if we can’t get good attackers to feed him. With the current squad we have , Piatek does not fit in. He can be a substitute striker.once they starve him of passes that’s alll. I don’t know whether our sporting directors don’t do a microscopic examination of players before they buy them. Before we spend hard earned money on players, we need to do proper assessment. Maybe our limited fund is what is making us to… Read more »

Every time Milan makes a mistake (every = most of the), a goal is conceded.
Every time the opposition makes a mistake, there is a — (1) backpass from Milan, (2) laughable attempt to dribble in, or, (3) wild shot that does not go past the first defender.

Bona is back though! I hope he will keep the left forward role instead of going to midfield. Bona seems to be the only player today in advanced role who caused decent troubles.

We need to get on a lengthy winning streak now.
Forza Milan.

Bona played his Best football as a left midfielder and he delivers goals. Paqueta isn’t what we expected, Kessie can’t step up ando Krunic is not above Paqueta’s technique. Bennacer is a “revista”

IMO, Leao Will do good as a left winger. Hakan, Paqueta and Kessie should fight for the other Mezzala spot

he looks like a joke..i believe he doesnt want anymore milan.but the only team wanting him is genoa.and they have only 10-15 to spend.piantek is trying to lower his price tag.then genoa will offer 1 year loan with option to buy for 15..and we will accept,becouse his salary will be a burden to maintain.we have a huge list of players in the last 10 years.where we buyed for a lot ,payed huge salary.then made losses trying to get rid of them.milan is the worst team in buying and selling player..

What do u expect from Our strikers when we have mediocre wingers like Calhanoglu and Suso. Kessié cannot give u a good pass. Paquetá too is joining the wagon. He holds on to be ball too much when he should give a quick pass for counter attack. Like someone said in this blog, when we make mistake, often times it results to goal but when our opponents make mistakes, instead of us to make a meal of it by doing a quick counter attack with a quick dribble or long pass, we tend to slow it down and do a… Read more »

Glad I missed another shitshow to instead watch Flamengo win the Libertadores. Hope we get some good players in Jan. like Zlatan. (Although now everybody is saying he’s going to join Mourinho in Totteham, another mistake by the board.)
