Tough match, but I know we won’t be complacent. This what you’ve been working for, and what we’ve been waiting for, for god knows how many years now. Only one out come possible. Let’s win this.

This should be an easy win. Cagliari are technically out of relegation danger now. They don’t have to fight for even a point anymore. But for us Milanistas… -Tonight is the night we will return to CL after almost a goddamn DECADE. Nothing else can give so much happiness than this. -Tonight Papa Pioli would probably take a big fat dump on all those #pioliOut posts. (Still think we need an upgrade to Pioli at some point.) -After tonight, the glamour of ACMilan would return – top players/coaches would want to join us more than ever. -Another bomb on Rube.… Read more »

Everyone deserves a break in life. Perhaps, Pioli has learnt. I was one of those who wanted him out – even if he got UCL qualification. The last two games showed that Pioli has a capacity to improve.

He had a streak of always bottling up and it was worrisome that the pattern would continue. Today’s match against Cagliari is crucial. I don’t care if it ends 1–0 or 6–0. The Champions League has missed Milan too long.

Forza Milan.

Hakan has been such a waste of time. Once again he’s showing the worst of him. No creativity, can’t pass, hold the ball, dribble, poor set pieces.

Salamakers again shows us why we need a better rw! No skill, no speed, no creativity!

We simply are playing with no urgency! This comes down to the coach! Go out pressure and get a fucking goal!

Theo should be bench, he not showing a spirit and have ridicilous attitude, u can’t win the game by screaming. Pressure is to high for this young group, passing too slow, everyone just stand still in the position and just make horizontal or backpass, if they not fix this in 2nd half, then we will play in European League again next year

Half time 0: 0 the same team that beat Torino 7: 0 where the problem is. Obviously Teo Hernandez doesn’t take FOOTBALL seriously and what he does on the field is ridiculous and sad. Against Cagliari you can’t score. Awesome how funny the players on the field look. Of course, this is primarily the fault of coach Pioli, who is very bad and has no idea to lead the team, secondly, the players are distracted and have no idea what they should do. I would replace Tea Hernandez and insert Dalot, I would also perform Salamankers and insert Leao

Pioli can only play counter attacking football. Thats why he starts good in a team that has been doing bad before him. Every one plays open football against his new team knowing that the team was bad. Then when they realize that Pioli plays counter attack, teams start to play more closed football not leaving themself exposed and Pioli strugless. Same reason why his record is better in away games, where the other team playes more open footbal it suits Pioli.

You are correct! I was sceptical about this game. I felt Pioli got lucky against Juve because Pirlo is a rookie coach. Also Torino has a caretaker coach. I was worried and Pioli just confirm how crap he is.

People want to attribute this failure to San Siro. If you believe in that superstition about Milan’s home form, then you better take Pioli’s serial bottling up seriously. Can Pioli outfox the wily Gasperini?

Shame… I guess it’s time to resume #PioliOut

What the heck is with that back passing, if you have a room to shoot just shoot, something will go in. Cagliari is not even trying that hard, but we are just nagging the game. Do we really need to rellay on luck every time. Hakan needs to be benched he looks like he dosent want to play, he is slowing the attacks. And thats the worst free kick i have seen.

Bro exactly, hakans job is to be creative! He’s the one that needs to pick out passes going forward. Not only that but this team lacks dribblers outside of rebic and Diaz right now. We may have to put in leao for hakan or salemakers. Same for hauge. We need more urgency and speed to the play

Have said it before …This is where we are having the real issue. When team sit back to defend , we always find them difficult to break down ..If Calgliari needs a win in this match , they would have been attacking and we would have scored. I felt somehow uncomfatable when Benevento played draw because that’s what makes Calgliari escape relegation .

Cagliari parking the bus as usual. Pioli needs to make some changes. Milan look flat. Diaz not effective.

This is a game I would play Hauge but have both Hauge and Calhanoglu move around freely.

We won’t get anything on the crosses against Cagliari.

He took Diaz off and he left Hakan who is walking all game long. And he brought in Samu who does more in defence than in attack. CL or not Milan has to get a proper coach. I guess will have to pray for luck once again this time around.

Agreed, look like they don’t have enough energy to play fast football, they hold the ball too long and let opponent regroup. Pioli also make controversial subtitution if we don’t want say worse, they need player who can dribble and pass 1 or 2 player and he know exactly samu is not the guy, Mandzukic and Hauge should play, but it is what it is, Pioli will take full responsibilty and us need to bear another dissapointment season

Is not about Cagliari, we don’t have right spirit and mentality, and I think Milan not deserve play in CL yet, look at 10 man Juve last night despite controversial penalty. Milan played like they already lost and doesn’t have confidence or believe, this is a difference between great team and mediocare team, although we can argue this team still young.
