So bad ! Its like my fellow Milan mates have lost morales. Only One person has made comments since. I know we all don’t feel good about the game with Spezia but we need to put that behind and support this team to the very end as we don’t have another Milan .

That spezia game was a heartbreaker.
I really thought they had turned a corner, scoring 4 goals the week before and getting a full squad back.
I really hope they can get back their mojo, they have been playing badly for a while.

In the derby I hope they just go for it! Try and out score inter and put them under pressure, like what was done to us by spezia.
At the very least if we lose we do it in style

It’s hard to get over what spezia did to us. I don’t think I’ve seen us get so dominated this entire season even atalanta didn’t own us like that.

Inter or Atalanta would have scored more than 6goals each in that game against Crotone. Even with the brace, Zlatan and Rebic were below par! Any honest fan would have noticed that by putting sentiments aside. When I pointed that Zlatan and Rebic weren’t flowing well with the rest of the team, I got a backlash with dislikes. What happened next? The team carried the same attitude into the spezia game and finally vindicated me! Zlatan is good but can’t start every match bcos of his age! Leao should mostly start as cf bcos of his pace, skills and technicality.… Read more »

Good points made, but i think that you are a little confused between left and right

Lol.. my emotions overwhelmed me. Leao/Rebic/Hauge belongs to LW while Samu/Alexis belongs to the RW. Anyone thinking of playing Madzukic in the RW is a JOKER! Bcos he won’t be able to keep the pace talk more of skillfully beating defenders 1n1.

They were poor but it’s better for serie a if they progress.
Also it gives them extra games to play. I wish bloody inter were still fighting on 2 fronts

Just realized that sundays match against inter will be played at 15.00 while the evening match at 20.45 is between benevento vs roma, what the hell was figc thinking when this was decided.

Probably weather factor was considered, we don’t really know the reasons for their decision. Let’s hope it favors us nonetheless

Wouldnt make much sense as the match starts are usually decided long before the actual match days arrive, Obviously it wont favour us in any way because not only is we playing a match today while inter isnt playing a midweek match and if it favours anyone its inter and for that matter napoli, roma and juventus who plays afterwards but my point is pretty much that its the most high profile match of the week and usually such matches will be played in the evening.

Normally that makes sense but last week v spezia was a disaster after having a week off.
I’m happy they have a match before the derby, sharpen up some of the boys like Rebic and Bennacer etc

Offcourse its good for morale if we win but that wasnt really the question because usually the most high profile match of the week are played at the evening and i just wonder why we then endup playing a match so fast after a europa league match when there is no game of the week that can contest milan vs inter.

a win from this match will gives better mentality for Milan’s player ahead Inter match. So let’s win this

Combination of Kjaer-Tomori is better than Romag-Tomori. Kjaer is better in aerial ability and Tomori is better in speed and agresiveness.

Use this match to try out Rebic on the right. Go into the Inter match with some help on the right side other than Calabria. Rebic has already played the position for Croatia. There is no need to play Samu or Alexis ever again. They add nothing to this team.

seems like Pioli is trying to get bennacer as many minutes as he can get. We know the kessie-bennaccer is our best partnership. We just need to get bennacer back to fitness for the extremely crucial inter game.
