So what if they want him? Milan wants pleanty of players, that dosent mean they are automaticly top class. We wanted Meite right ? De Paul only has good shot thats it. He is slower than Romagnoli and constantly falls. Udine wants 40 mil. We could have got Szobozlai for 25mil or even keep Paqueta and they both were already on his level only around 5years younger. Would rather get a striker for that money, or maybe try for Dany Olmo, way better option.

milan wanted to loan him with option to buy at 10m for a year. the fact that ur implying that de paul is on same level as meite shows ur football understanding.
szoboszlai barely plays for rb leipzig, and both him and olmo already rejected milan. why should milan try to get rejected for 2nd time? doesnt make any sense.
de paul is real deal: same amount of assists as hakan, same experience, same skillset. he can even play as lw/rw, cm, even dm. exactly what milan need.

Exactly! Milan had the chance to sign these players a few years ago and simply didn’t want to pull the trigger. We anted szoboszlai well before ragnick and simply decided not to get him. Same thing with brobbey, sensi, barella and many more. Milan has not even one time, got a pre-agreement in place for those players.

Bro that foul before the pk was ridiculous. But the pk and the header too me is just too suspicious. Why would de Paul literally raise his arm to block the shot when we all know Ronaldo’s free kick record is horrible. And then the keeper….. what is he doing! It’s a simple collection of the ball and he lets it go through his legs???

No idea why he raise his arm like that he clearly went for the ball. It was a penalty mainly cause he went for the ball with his arm. It didnt hit him by accident. The second goal was regular i guess…No one complained so i gues it was all ok during the second goal. Any way the foul before the penalty was what turned the game and it was an obvious dive, plus the ref was close. Best thing was that the Reff kept letting Juve get away with harsh fouls all game long and then he called that… Read more »

I meant to wait for the offical seria A highlights, just so we can see if they will show the dive, since it was clearly an important part of the game.

Nah, I think it was sassuolo and spezia loses that cost us right now. That and the games in the first half of the season against Roma and Verona when the refs and var just randomly decided not to check the replay for obvious hand balls. Either way, Milan fucked up by not buying attacking players. It’s our fault

Udinese showed that all you need to do is not be afraid to play against them. We have better players but we play sooo slow. If we pick up the tempo, we can beat their slow press. It’s possible and this time we have a full team unless pioli decides to have hard practices that injure our players again

Nathan, with all due respect brother Udinese showed more than just bravery. Tactical they were good apart the crazy mistakes De Paul and Scuffet made. Tactics is Milan’s biggest problem. Pioli doesn’t have what it takes tactically to beat Juventus and Atalanta. He feels that they are better than us and it shows in how he approaches the game. Our last victory against juventus was an anomaly. It was just a weird game were everything went right including juventus being poor and making some inexcusable mistakes. Pioli doesn’t read the game well and he really doesn’t have an answer when… Read more »

Oh your right for sure. I didn’t mean it took just bravery. I meant it in all aspects. Essentially not to be afraid to execute your game. Pioli for sure is gonna make our team sit back even if we just have a 1-0 lead. Thing is if we can some how win, jives next game is against inter. Normally I’d say inter will play the subs since they won the league but there’s no way they want to end the league with a defeat to juve. So a win and then a loss against inter could actually pretty much… Read more »

I have no faith in Pioli to be honest and I will be surprised if we qualify for champions league.

We went from title contenders to fighting for champions in 2months. That’s a huge fall.
