The lack of quality in the final third is stark. Hope management focuses on the offense for the remainder of the market.

Why pick Salamaekers as a winger instead of Rebic?

Rebic’s numbers are much better than Sala

Maybe because one plays on the right and the other one on the left…

If milan didn’t buy Tonali initially from Brescia everyone would have said the management is useless and bla bla.. It’s his second season here, and he still plays with so much fear and nervousness. He better come good this season.

How much did he cost about 25 million? I’d have rather bought camavinga or renato sanchez for that

Keep in mind that Real Madrid is 2 weeks head in preparation and Milan held them to scoreless game. Yes, Real played better but didn’t really create much.

I don’t understand people being so hard on Tonali! He didn’t play consistently last year because of the stability of Kessie and Bennacer, and he needs the time to develop. A bit more composed in holding his role, more effective with the ball than the earlier preseason games and didn’t lose the ball as much – although you could see glimpses of nervousness. People have to give players a bit of time, especially since these are preseason games and Tonali went head-to-head with one of the best midfielders of this decade in Modric. I hope Tonali gets the time to… Read more »

Agreed. And remember players are at their lowest cost in years. Now that fans are coming back, their value will increase easily by another 10-15 mil and we will be priced out big time

@Patinho, you said it all. Some of the guys ranting here didn’t watch the match. Kudos to Tonali for that composed performance. What do you think of Isco’s performance today?

Agreed. Tonali did exactly what he was supposed to do. He kept the play moving forward and his distribution was good. Not sure what else they want from him. He did his job and he won many balls back.

Isco is not the answer. Diaz is def better than him now. A few years ago Isco was crazy good but not right now

Isco played a central midfield role today something like mezzala not attacking mid. But I agree, he is not the anwser as he is not the player he used to be.

Thanks buddy! It’s encouraging too see – we fans can hope, Sandro has to do the work. Let’s not forget he had to “sacrifice” a lot to sign for our team. We need to support for him to unlock his development!

As for Isco, he was quite everywhere during the first half. It seemed as he wasn’t 100%, but he showed some nice stuff here and there.

Leao n Tonali should improve themselves very quickly…. Otherwise they will be in the sale list next season…. Hope they will be better than now… Real played with their main team but Milan was without their 5 key players…. So draw with Real Madrid is a very good result for us…. No more Krunic n Samu plz

definitely need RW reinforcement. No need to wait until Samu leave. Samu can stay as false nine if we don’t sign another striker

In my opinion Maignan’s penalty save was crucial yesterday. It will give whole team a better picture who Maignan is and what he’s capable. It will be a boost after a probable psychological shock of Donnarumma leaving. It will also give Maignan more confidence in this new environment. Good showing, hope he has a strong season ahead!

Some Guys here Are So Biased and Delusional.. How Dare you mention Tonali, Salaemakers, as Tops? Did you see how Bale Got Passed Tonali So Easily for the Penalty? Or Did Saleamalers Complete any of his pass the whole game? krunic & Castilejo, shouldn’t even be allowed into the city of Milan talk less MILANELLO. Brahim Díaz Was Aweful, except for the final 10 mins. Rebic Looked Drunked When He Came On, And We Couldn’t create a single good Cross For Giroud. Leao Started Poorly, But Was Still Our Best Player After Magic Mike. But You Guys Always Crusify Leao… Read more »

Like I said earlier on this squad is not convincing to me at all I just don’t understand what’s going on with the transfer so far so good it’s just maigan and Giroud but we can’t rely on Giroud because of his age we really need that creativity in that midfield that final or killer pass to the ST we seriously need a RM to push up and some things need to be done like renewing kessie contract and Roman or sell Roman if he doesn’t want to sell him if he doesn’t want to renew than losing him for… Read more »

Delvin u need to be calm, we all saw how the likes of Kessie, Calabria, Bennacer nd even Hakan started out very bad with Milan, look at how there stock nd performance as been up, Tonali is jst 21. Note: Renato Sanchez was signed for 35m nd another 45 for perfomance dts 80m by bayern, he was terribly awful nd was loaned to Swansea he was terrible there as well before Bayern sold him to Lille on a huge loss, he is a player i want at Milan bt u cant even endure Tonali hw wuld u endure Renato if… Read more »

Bro.. I’ve been one of Tonali’s biggest Advocate when my Brothers are tryna Crusifuly him. and I was happy when Maldini used the buy option on him. All I’m saying is, let’s also be Fair On Leao who in all the Frustration he comes with, he has already done so much more to earn our patients knowing fully well he is also about 21 years of age.. He has the biggest talent in the whole of Seria A. Let’s be patient with all and not just Tonali…

Bro I’m not being harsh on Tonali but rather just stating facts. I want him to succeed more than anyone else, but I get mad at him every time because I know he can do so much better. I no longer get mad at Krunic, Samu and Saleamakers because I don’t expect shit from them, and because I’m already convinced they’re not even worthy of being a ball boy at a club like AC Milan talk less being An important player…

Ilicic would be usefull to the team for 2 years contract. He can play as CAM, RW and CF. Bakayoko would also give guarantee in midfield. in the mean time give Maldini a time and chance to develop as CAM. He looked more promising as CAM.
