2 minute, first WTF moment of the match … way to start

Raven

Can’t watch, what happened?

Baresis Dream

Donna passes to a Bolignia player, and immediately afterwards Theo looses the ball at the edge of the box

soheil balini

strange game! I’m rooting for Milan to win & at the same time, Miha to not lose!

Baresis Dream

Swap Jack and Hakan please.

soheil balini

makes sense! Swapping Hakan with someone on bench is also a good Idea.

Baresis Dream

In all fairness he’s playing out of position (for the one millionth time)

soheil balini

where is his natural position in 4-3-3? he played CM & DM under Giampaolo and LAM & LW under Pioli and he was good in only 1 game, all season.

Nesta1

I reckon that makes theo worth 100 million now! 3 points coming.

soheil balini

he scored the own goal! back to 70M 🙂

Nesta1

Lol, yeah I cursed him!

richis

and conceited a penalty. Back to 50 mil

Baresis Dream

Good first half, at least the first 35 minutes, even though we’re shaky at the back. Theo in particular is bad in our own half, and Musa let Palacio make fun of him on 1-2 occasions. But our midfield is quite solid, in particular Bennaser and Keisse; how good can Keisse be when doesn’t try things he can’t do? Our first goal has Piatek’s name all over it, and the second has Suso’s name with a magical messi-level move to set up Theo. Lastly, please swap Jack and Hakan. Let’s hope the boys can continue and get us the 3… Read more »

what is hakan contribution to this match that he deserves play 90mins instead of bonaventura?

TanMilan

he ‘might’ hit the next free kick right

TanMilan

unnececary yellow card from the captain..still young.why argue when a decision is made after var…he will feel the pain when his yellow card limit is full one match and he will let his team down…

soheil balini

not a great game by Pioli’s standards but we won against a tough opponent.

Baresis Dream

I thought Pioli managed the game quite well

Rossi

The subs were a bit off, and closing up so early lead to Bologna getting chances with out much effort which could have cost us 3 points in the end.

soheil balini

The only sub I expected Was Hakan. I’m still trying to solve the mystery of Hakan. 3 coaches are gone and he is still playing 90 minutes week by week. am I missing something?

Rossi

Yup Hakan is the one im talking about, should have been subed much much earlier.

soheil balini

I never said he didn’t, I meant we played better under him against stronger opponents.

Ink

9 points off top 4.
Need to win against Atalanta. Not to mention, need to beat all the teams that Milan should beat on paper.

Baresis Dream

Well, we can’t have comfortable wins I guess, but overall good performance by the boys, and an important win in a difficult away fixture (especially considering Mihalovich’s return to the bench). The main story here imo is Theo’s disastrous defesive performance, directly causing two goals, at least 3 loses of the ball really close to our box, and generally making Romag and Bennaser (very good outing) lives much harder. Yes, he scored a wonderful goal, and was overall dangerous on attack throughout, but we need an LB. He really needs to improve in almost all defensive aspects if he’s to… Read more »

its like a machine working without the oil.just doesnt wanna flow fluid..like a second hand car in his last days of life waiting some rich guy to buy it .and pimp it up.like a real class oldtimer who works better then the new plastic cars.drives more stylish and is more durable..who will have the eyes .buyes with milan a real deal.needs just to invest some big money

Ted

Bennacer was on thin ice with yellow and there’s no other to replace him but Biglia. Jack was working hard all night and he’s after a season long lay off.

Good game by boys, it’s obvious they are young and naive. Bologna only got their goals from Theo and a penalty in the second half.

Good win! Forza Milan!

richis

you could say theo kept them in a game. player of the game for both sides

Nesta1

I just don’t get why hakan plays left wing, bono would be so much better there. Every manager plays hakan as left winger! But the 3 points is most important at this stage playing catch up.

Watching Milan is not good for your Cardio-Vascular health long term. Any ways, we are back! We need to win three more games on the trot, Forza Milan!

TanMilan

its painfull.after all this years i try to see it as a gym exercise..but nothing for heart problem people

Lando

Didn’t watch the game.
Was it as close as the score?

Giuda Interista

Yes

Emmy Apache

Good mind game from the coach and I believe gradually we are coming back. The game against Juventus really helped boast our morale after a good performance
Meanwhile the only major problem we have now, although we have other problems but this one is MAJOR. SOME OF OUR PLAYERS ARE VERY SELFISH
INSTEAD OF PASSING THE BALL TO A TEAM MATE WHO IS IN BETTER POSITION TO SCORE, HE WILL WANT TO SCORE AND THUS MISS THE GOAL.
The coach and management should look into that direction
