Good team performance and a well deserved win. For Milan to step up a level in quality we need to improve our AM, RB, CF and RW.

Our defense is solid. Kjaer and Romagnoli have great chemistry and they read the game well.

DM- Kessie and Bennacer are improving game by game. They are young and will only get better.

Credit to Pioli. The team has improved since the COVID-19 break. It’s a pity we didn’t have Pioli instead Giampaolo. Our season started very bad. Smh

The attacking midflied trio are now mote fluid..they keep on changing position. You can see Hakan often move to the middle or even right..

there’s nothing fluid about milan midfield trio vs roma mate, at least not until paqueta and saladmaker came on. hakan kept moving to the middle but bona and samu were so stiff and static that they tended to get in each other’s way. they were slow and horrible. milan played better in last 30-35mins because paqueta, considered too brazilian by giamfanculo, brought directness and vision and saladmaker and theo brought pace and dangerous overlapping into milan’s game. hakan sent zero crosses into penalty box (deadballs notwithstanding) all game from his position on the left. rebic also got tired easily playing… Read more »

remember when milan10 said way back that milan should get conte and just raid bundesliga and real madrid reserves for gems like goretzka, draxler, hakimi and ceballos? well, apparently inter of all team, goddammit, are about to pull all 3 in 1 on move: by appointing conte who likes strong, technical wingbacks, inter by design are targetting none other than hakimi. this guy will be right footed theo next season and its a shame that milan never pulled a milan10ian move to get him. and tonali signing will also be a big FU to milan. i hope to hell milan… Read more »

TONITE ON LIKE MILAN10 SAID “Milan10 9 days ago i’ve been thinking, now that napoli has pretty much secured european spot by beating juve and juve itself will surely qualify for ucl, does that mean 7th placed in the league will also qualify for el (given napoli finish 6th or above)? i hope so” i’ve done some checking and apparently i was right (well, duh); milan WILL qualify for europa league should the table stay like this and milan finish 7th in giornata 38. i hope pioli and the boys can still fight for 6th or even 5th but its… Read more »

I don’t like to give self praise here but I’ve been saying 4 2 3 1 all season long! It best suits our players. Bennacer and Kessie have been incredible and strong. Calhanoglu looks dangerous and smart with his decision making. When you put players in their right position they suddenly don’t look like trash. It’s kind of sad because pioli in truth hasn’t done so bad and now that he’s finding his way with this team he is probably going to lose his job. If he makes a real push for the remainder of the games he should be… Read more »

Yes, 4231 is IMO the best formation for Milan, almost all of the midfielders are good attackers. But I think the management will stick to 433 or 442, Saelesmaekers will be staying I heard. Pioli has done a great job, he came with #pioliout and a bunch of angry and depressed squad. Without Pioli and Ibra this team would be destroyed. However, Pioli has made a lot of questionable decisions. I support him staying only if no better option arrives. About Maldini, I’ll talk with the red and black shirt on, he should be appointed as president, kinda like Berlusconi… Read more »

Happy to hear that Paqueta will replace Jack on AMC position. I hope he will shine tonight

I think when Milan against weak teams, milan should use 442 attacking with Paqueta and Bennacer in midfield, not Kessie.

“Paqueta is too Brazilian” Lol, he is just too careless, Bennacer cannot hold the whole midfield alone. Kessie and Bennacer needs to play every game.
