I appreciate Colombo starting. I would have loved to see Brahim Diaz playing as well as a right winger to see its effectiveness. We need to make some evaluation to check who are reliable among the new players to the squad.

Ibra recovering from a blunt trauma to his leg… I bet he tried to karatekick something or someone and that went slightly wrong :’)

First half : Hakan was useless, may be because no Ibra. Paqueta should replace him. Saelemaeker should switch side with Samu at second half.

Hnmnn…..Am not watching the match but if your comment about Hakan is to go by, then that is disheartening.. At this point all our normal first 11 should be flawless. That’s y I still hope we can get Chiesa or another good attacker as back ups…I enjoined Milan management to use their football sagacity and appraise the current squad in the light of the top serie a teams if we are to achieve top four…
Further sound bench is needed.

No way Hakan was in top form, spread the ball very good and was making runs in the 16box, made an assist later on as well. Him and Paqueta both looked good so we should be well covered in CAM. Salamaker was the worst player didnt really did anything, every one else was good.

milan looked uninspired in 1st half because there was only one playmaker on the field, hakan, and he wasnt even interested (still registered 1 assist though, fantastic dead ball specialist that he is). but once milan subbed on playmaker after playmaker, they looked much better moving the ball around and forward purposefully. this is why i’ve been saying milan needed playmaker(s). tonali showed great fighting spirit and brahim controlled the flow of the game much better than samu, although he needs to be much less selfish in front of goal. also, how awesome is colombo? im not even talking about… Read more »

I think its more tactical for the players to not push so much in the first half, they are kinda saving energy for the second. I liked how Tonali runs in front opponents to permit them from continuing there run, really smart.
Colombo is doing good he is kinda like stronger Piatek good positioning and shooting, btw he is 18 just got promoted in the premievera youth team last year and now it seems he will be in the seniors. We might have another gem in the team other then Tonali.

I think Colombo has better ball control too than Piatek

Who played as a striker or false nine when Colombo out?

Since Marash Kumbula is way cheaper than Milenkovic don’t you guys think it will be better to snap Kumbula in a Tonaliesque fashion especially since he also knows serial A very well.
