OK, I’ll explain myself. Did you see how Barcelona was noticeably better with Braithwaite on the team? I say Leao should always start on either wing, especially on the left if Rebic can’t play. How did Leao score the fastest goal on Serie A? Running from the left. IMO, Hauge is a fantastic player, but he can’t take Leao’s spot anytime soon, and Rebic is still ahead of Leao, as the Croatian has more determination and his stamina seems better. We were on the needs of 3 points and Colombo has been dissapointing, so yeah, but Leao’s fastest goal in… Read more »

By the way, we only had like 33% possession against sas. Why is that? Bc we dont have enough players that can retain the ball, and have the ability to win it back. We can’t even stretch the field bc we decide to play hakan or Diaz at the same time and we have salemakers who works hard but really doesn’t do shit.

Rebic and leao as LW and Saelmaekeres and Hauge as RW. (Hauge is talented enough to convert) A very big thanks to Sassulo that didn’t park the bus… Read more »

Krunic suck. I am disappointed Maldini didn’t sell to Freiburg for 8m when we had the chance. We might have to play a Musacchio or Duarte alongside Tonali in midfield.

I really can’t stand Krunic though. We made a mistake by keeping him.

I know it’s risky, but at this current state with so many players unavailable, risk must be taken

Hauge has looked really bad in the last few games he has played. Don’t know what’s going on with him but he needs to shake that shit off.

Tough win given the possible injury to Tonali which I’m assuming is the reason he was subbed.

It is clear though that Krunic is useless as a DM. Really disappointed that we didn’t offload him this summer. Smh.

congrats to john malkovich and the boys for the win. that was masterclass by signore john; he outclassed de zerbi by beating sassuolo at their own game, which is fast counter attacking style using quick diagonal through balls and long balls exploiting fast wingers (and st) and tall st. once again leaonaldo showed that he should always play st whenever ibra isnt around. fantastic performance by him, as he was clearly the most skillful player on the pitch. the mf triangle hakan, tonali and kessie also did so well and its such a shame that hakan’s goal was disallowed. brahim… Read more »

Great win today considering all the injuries we are currently experiencing and even with all of our players fit i would gladly have taken a 2-1 win for us as sassuolo has proven themselfs as a dangerous team that can beat everyone on a good day at the office. I just gave our players a look at Transfermarkt and according to the site simon kjær is expected to be back from december 25th so hopefully he will be fit for the benevento match january 3rd so he can get some minutes into his legs before the juventus match. Finally i… Read more »

Hernani Azevedo Júnior is a very talented player and would do great at Milan possibly even better than the players we have been linked to like Soumare but I don’t even think we have been linked to him.

Hopefully Maldini and Massara consider him in January. With a CB, DM and CF in January we can definitely win the scudetto.

To my knowledge we havent been linked with him and i pretty much read everything ac milan related on a daily basis but it was also just a suggestion by me that i would like to see happen and propably at an affordable price. Even if he doesnt cost below ten mil i cant imagine he will cost much more in the end so it could be a great addition where we still should be able to get other areas covered. Soumare would be a great transfer no doubt about that but he currently holds a value of 24.5 mil… Read more »

Totally agree. Well said. The cost of Soumare is way more than what we would spend for Hernani which makes him the better option of the two. Maldini and Massara have shown great vision in the transfer market and hopefully Hernani is a player under consideration given how well he played against Milan. We need a quality bench if we want to return to the top. The good thing is that we don’t have to spend like Inter and Juventus to do it. We just have to be smart and acquire players like Hernani. Milan should consider recruiting you as… Read more »

Yeah lets hope they see it our way as well because he could deffently be a good option even if they only have him under consideration for a move. Regardless of the position we currently holds im glad we have chosen this road of ours which in my view was allways how we should have acted in the last years of berlusconi at the helm of the club. The depth of the bench is without doubt incredibly important for succes. We have improved that a lot in the last year or two but there is certainly room for improvement. One… Read more »

lol roma are losing. what awesome player ilicic is, and he’s not even starter tonite. saladmaker and especially castipendejo really need to learn how to be effective winger from watching ilicic’s gameplay; not particularly fast but possesses very deadly shooting and crossing skills

on a second thought, i think milan should just buy him outright. what an awesome solo way to score ur doppietta.
i’d give atalanta caldara, castipendejo, 50% ownership of pessina AND 15m for ilicic. thats how good he is and how much milan need proper rw

Josip Illic is too old and not part of Milan’s youth project. Thauvin is the most likely to arrive.

Those players were an exception not the norm. This is no longer the Berlusconi era. Players like Illic and Papu Gomez will come with high salaries and the club will not invest in these players.

There are also younger quality options that are cheaper like Thauvin who is available on a free transfer next summer.

There’s no point in spending any transfer money for a 32 yr old Illic especially when Saelemaekers is playing good.

uh, im pretty sure ilicic and papu qualify as exceptions as well. in fact, we all should thank both of them for destroying milan 5-0, because without it milan wouldnt’ve started the mini revolution and kjaer and ibra wouldnt’ve come. in short, milan are winning now because of them. regarding salaries, have u actually checked how much they earn, especially compared to thauvin? saladmaker has been doing well but he’s nowhere near ilicic’s level. in fact, many star players of serie a this season like mkhitaryan, pedro, cr7, ibra, kjaer, vidal etc are >30. lets not pull a nazidis and… Read more »

Serie A is very competitive this season and I’m enjoying it. To be honest the same can be said for all the top leagues in Europe – EPL, La Liga, Ligue 1, Turkish league and Bundesliga. Really good balance this season. Hopefully Milan can come out on top and return to the UCL.

correctamundo mate. its been so competitive in europe top 5 leagues, in particular serie a as finally italian football has new il sette magnifico. as long as milan can keep healthy > 6 points distance between them and 5th placed team, i think milan have serious chance of finishing top 4 or even top 3 and thus returning to ucl. ah well, good times ahead

p.s. roma just dropped points. i hope napoli will do as well
