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

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

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

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.

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 »

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

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.

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?

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

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

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.

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 »

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!

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.

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
