I hate to say it, but, something scares me about this fixture. The boys are exhausted. The injured players need to come back already and play their parts.

Also, I’m really excited that we are moving on from Kessie. We must sell him in January to the highest bidder, and put his transfer fee to good use.

Kessie is still a very important player. At his best, he’s a beast. Lucky for us, he decided to have his worst moments when he asked for a raise. At the end of last year, he was outplaying everyone. Anyway, I understand people saying we are underestimating them. BUT, I’d argue Gabbia is uber talented and has proven he’s reliable, Kalulu has done what he has asked every time. Tonali-Bennacer-Diaz should be as good as any and upfront not much changed. If this isnt the game to play them, then when?. This is the game to play young guys and… Read more »

Dear Papa Pioli,

All I want for Christmas is a RW!!
Until then, please please please try Rebic on the Right. Leao on the left and whoever’s fit upfront

Rebic did play on the right (in offense) for several minutes against juve, when Leao went into the middle. Wasn’t so effective tbh, but I am in favor of him as a RW when Giroud/Zlatan are available

It would be so exciting to see a full attack with balance.
It would also improve our left side as every team knows that we are a 1 sided team.
I think with a strong Rw we could be lethal on counter attacks. Like liverpool dare I say it

Most important, apart from the specific matchups, is that we come out playing like lions from minute one, aggressive and tenacious. If we start slow and show our tiredness, this can turn out to be a very difficult match.

Bring the 3 points hime boys.

A teenager, J. Antiste just gave Spezia the lead over Juve. Now, Milan and Spezia are not on the same level. However, please remember Spezia beat Milan 2–0 last season which possibly started the loss of the grip on top spot in Serie A for Milan. Anyway, the purpose of this post is to tell you guys that Milan needs to trust its bench players. Gabbia, Ballo-Toure, Pellegri, Kalulu, Florenzi should be trusted. It shouldn’t be forced like the game against Juve when a knock picked up by Kjaer led to Kalulu being brought on. It’s a different case with… Read more »
