Where’s Gabbia though? maybe not match fit. Im glad we have Gabbia as the perfect cover our defence though. Still think we need a Quality CB and RW in January. all other departments are pretty much set.

i watched inter – parma last nite. parma could’ve won but they decided to defend instead of searching for 3rd goal to kill the game off and surely enough, they conceded 2 goals. damn shame. ffs pioli, dont ever pull that bs again

Udinese will be a tough opponent. This Udinese side is stronger then the previous ones because since Watford relegated the Pozzo’s has now decided again to invest the most in Udinese for now. Good for Serie A, tougher for us but we are up for the cha

Guys, Leao is beginning to show to show his skills and ability and now giving Pioli an headache in the choice between him and Rebic…who do you guys prefer as first choice ???

Both players are good in their own ways leao is faster but rebic is more skillful

I dont think that pioli is having any headaches in regard of rebic/leao because the croat is a better and more complete player. The reason rebic will start on the bench is because he isnt in good form after being sidelined for some time. Rebic fits our play style better than leao as he offers the team a better outcome infront of goal and also offers a far stronger workload in the deffensive phase. Anyways we are stacked on the left wing which deffently is a positive compared to previous years,

Udinese defended deep and tight at first half. But finally we got the first goal. Ibra looked tired.

Totally agree. It’s getting very irritating because we should have also got a penalty at the end of the game for clear handball against Udinese defender.

By the way, if Inter continues to drop points like this, they won’t win the league. They are letting in too many goals, 10 goals against already. I wonder if they will sack Conte

Pirlo Is playing like Giampaolo lmao.

At this rate, Inter will ran out of money, and Juve Will lose its momentum.

The league is for Milan or Napoli, but the players’ attitude was horrible today. We need rebic, Zlatan, Kessie at their best

problem for them is that he earns 12 mil a year so sacking him will be quite expenssive for them but i guess the board cant accept their current form and results either.

A small sidenote, as much as i hate our blue shirt it must be extra humiliating for inter fans that we even plays better than them in their color 😀

The phrase means he won’t eat Italy’s holidays cake. Meaning that he knows pressure is building, he won’t get sacked unless he really pulls a Gianpaolo and start talking crap about the players. He won today, and now Jive is behind us. Milan did bad today, only Zlatan had the will to win. Maybe the legs were tired, it’s great that rebic is fit and ready

yeah ok thanks for clarifying that raven, I was starting to hope for another surprise when i saw spezia had equalized to 1-1 but guess it was too much to ask them to grab one point. Yeah having rebic back will be of great value for us when he gets up in full gear, I think leao has impressed some in this season but rebic is just a notch or two better but im sure if leao keeps developing in his consistency and defensive department we will have a future star in him.

Today he played a more traditional 433. Even with a bad coach Juve is a team of men, with Ronaldo as its leader. Milan can actually win the scudetto, consistency is a must. Depth is desperately needed.

I havent seen the game, but acording to statistics Spezia had more chances. Juve 4 goals out of 4 shots. With Ronaldo they are a different team.

Nerve wrecking match that could have gone the other way as well had we been a bit unlucky. When that is said im not really impressed about todays performance but its a really great sign that we keep winning games like this even when not performing up to our best. I’ll go as far as to say that teams that does this even if sometimes dependant on luck and still gets the results over the goal line is exactly the teams that wins the trophies. Milan has build a great team in the making and we keep fighting untill the… Read more »

I know it’s very early to say this but this Milan team reminds me so much of 2010 Allegri team that won the scudetto. I feel if we can make good signings in January then the sky is the limit. Rumor has it that we have an agreement for Icardi- loan with option to buy at 40m. If we bring in Icardi, Thauvin and Milenkovic from Fiorentina we can definitely win Serie A and possibly Europa League. Anyways it’s time dream again and we deserve that thanks to Pioli and the players. They look united as a group. Notice when… Read more »

Yeah i agree the possibilities are deffently there even if i doesnt completely agree with the allegri comparison as i would compare it more with 98/99 scudetto year. I would gladly welcome icardi but ill believe it when i see it. I doubt we will get milenkovic but thauvin certainly should be brought in. Id suggest us to sign him on a free as soon we can and then facilitate a low buy after that if that can lessen marseiles demands. Kessies goal was a blast but wasnt it zlatan who made the assist ? either way they usually celebrate… Read more »

Important 3 points against a tricky opponent. We always struggled with udine. Diaz should definetly start on the right side. Sal should be droped. Everytime diaz touch the ball you can sense the danger. Better performance from tonali, slowly he is picking up his game. Cal and our captain should gind their form. They havent been as good as before the injuries. Even theo should get his form back. Also, pioli should have some back up plan when other teams are stacked up in defense. Overall good game from our boys. Not all the games are easy won. Keep up… Read more »

I feal sometimes like in this game Pioli trust Hakan to much. He dosent want to change him even when it is obvious he is slowing down the game. Maybe try Hauge or Diaz in that position as a back up when Hakan is not performing. To bad we let Bona go just like that.

Great result by the boys, super important win. Our intensity levels seem to have dropped this match, and the team looked tired for most of the midpart of the game. I’ve noticed that teams now don’t press Milan in our own half as much as they used to – what has been our weakness in recent years has become one of our strengths due to Pioli. That could also explain why this game the players didn’t seem that intense – Udi players were simply waiting in their half which really slowed down the game. Anyways, great job everyone, Pioli please… Read more »

Lol, seria A has turn off the coments for the Udin-Milan higlights on there youtube chanel. Last time with Roma a lot of people were complaning that Roma handbals were not shown in the higlights. I gues this time they wanted to avoid that 😀

We need to start showing confidence in hauge. He could have been a difference maker today. The 3 behind zlatan were not good today. Diaz, rebic and hauge should have been the subs. Other than that good game from Milan! As for the refs. Milan need to do something. We can’t keep allowing the refs to intentionally screw us over. That pk on Roman wasn’t a pk, even the announcers thought the ref should check. Then where’s the hand ball after zlatan flicked the ball. It’s these decisions that can cost us 3 points. Milan needs to make an inquiry… Read more »

Serie A might start the talks about salary reduction. Gazidis’ numbers are bad, but due to COVID-19, I assume Juve and Inter are way worst. I wonder if Maldini can pull a magic trick in January.

Some fans here can be very annoying….winning we’re winning now they want kalulu and hauge to play….maybe if those players play and we loose they’ll prefer that.

We want them to play bc you can see players are either tired or not mentally prepared. If you think we aren’t happy bc we won you are mistaken. Yes we won but that doesn’t mean we can’t make observations on performances. Hakan, leao and salemakers were off today. Diaz, rebic and hauge should have been the subs and they make sense. Don’t see the problem here
