Let’s get the win boys
milan’s best striker just scored his 10th goal of the season last nite, making him first rossonero to have double digit goals in 2021/2022. man, cant wait for him, hakan, paquelme and pobega to come back to join another young gems like tonali and theo at ac milan to create new dynasty and wreck havoc in serie a. oh wait
…is someone who calls florenzi flops. LMAO
My brother, it is obvious that you love the club with all your heart and you always do deep analysis, but sometimes you know to go too far with philosophizing …. Maldini works great in his sector, the fact that some players are dissatisfied and leave is not up to him.
If I’m being honest, I really do enjoy his analysis.
I like his analysis too, but sometimes talks a little too much about his wet dream stars
so milanisti (milan10ians and the uninitiated alike) can learn from it
good for you mate, that means u love football and are eager to learn
im literally the last guy who’ll ever blame maldini, especially not after all he’s done as director with limited budget and overall support from the owners.
andriy “the giant” silva left because milan (read: nazidis and eldiott) werent willing to cough up 25m for rebic thus they had to settle with straight swap. what a shame. we’re talking about a striker who sent his teammate brobbey (a striker highly regarded by the uninitiated) home to ajax with his tail between his legs because he’s too good. FACHT
Honestly, I respect your comments on this platform but you need to stop talking about Hakan, he’s average at best. I don’t think Milan are playing too badly without him. We only secured a Champions league spot on the last day last season even with Hakan and Donnarumma. I’m not saying Hakan is a bad player but he is not special as well, he’s not the kind of player the lifts his team, he shines when other players around him play well. I regret us losing Paqueta, Andre Silva and in a way Donnarumma but pls not Hakan. Let’s hope… Read more »
hakan is: serie a mvp for november top assistman of serie a highest rated mf according to opta better than brahim in terms of stats and end products im here to educate milanisti on how to spot and appreciate talents and more importantly, how to be objective and not letting hatred towards something/one make them be subjective. its important traits to get them through life if andriy silva, paqueta, hakan and (soon leao will) win monthly mvp awards in their respective leagues then surely milan10 was right and theyre DEAD wrong about those players. milan have brought me so much… Read more »
Then stop talking about “Rossonero” who are not at the club.
It is massively disrespectful to our players and fans.
Our actual Rossoneri kicked ass again today. The guys who stayed and played
NOT an over rated traitor like Hakan, who left for our closest rivals for more or less the same money. His choice. A choice which shows zero respect for the fans
for someone who constantly disrespects and bitches about milan’s key figures like ibra, maldini and pioli, u sure like to talk smack about respect. paquelme and andriy never got respect they deserved. instead, milan coaches opted to pick lower quality players like kalinic/cutrone and even krunic over them. hakan wanted 5m, milan offered 4.5m so he left. how is that disrespectful? its milan’s fault they are so stingy. had inter also offer 4.5m then yeah maybe. no milanista would refuse extra 0.5m on their yearly salary, especially ones who have family to feed, r u kidding me? dont be hypocrite.
Totally agree, I missed Silva, Paqueta, Donnaruma, and Bonaventura, but we did not retain them thus we have to move on.
just ignore him. he sometimes forget to take his pills
that’s what ur mom did when she created u on the billiard table while watching ac milan game 12 yrs ago
Bro are you a Milan fan or what.if u like Hakan so much then go on the blue side of Milan because we’re doin just fine without dolloruma an Hakan
3 points and plenty of goals please
Is that the Romero of Manchester?
That’s Chiquito Romero, I was surprised to see him too. He was a beast and one of the best back in the day. With his help Argentina was very close to glory. I was happy to see him.
Please give Leao 7m contact!!!!!! The boy is too good
the lion king scored from assist from leao (literally means big lion). talk about the king giving away the baton to capable hand of the prince.
i dont know who’s dumber, “milanisti” who bitched about ibra or leao. hell, who am i kidding, theyre exact same people lol
Boy oh boy, I was a hater I admit, certainly I gave an unfair judgement on the guy based on 6 months and ,3 videos of him acting silly.
Leao’s brilliance is due to Maldini, Pioli Zlatan and of course him. What a star.
this is why milan and milanisti should just agree with what milan10 said. reasons can wait, as we can find out for ourselves later *wink
Perfect start – great performance so far. But what I don’t get is how half the team can be garbage according to some fans (Baka, Tonali, Salaemakers, Diaz, Ibra, Pioli, etc etc) and yet second in the league at the same time…
Don’t like this sitting bk on lead, we gone to sleep again.
Agreed, we score in the 2nd min, we need to be more ruthless in killing off teams
Good start, plenty of chances made, we just need to get the second goal and kill them off.
Venezia are starting to find some rhythm. Florenzi could have given away a penalty with that shirt pull.
Come on guys, finish them
Brahim10 is either injured or defocused, the guy does not look like himself at all
Brahmin Diaz His lost… he’s the worst player on the pitch
no back up for LB. oh wait, we have krunic
Gabbia needs to be careful 2nd half being on a yellow and our cb crisis, plus I wouldn’t mind seeing messias come on for saladman and rebic for diaz
fantastic combo by milan’s left flank stars leaonaldo fenomeno and robertheo carlos. this is what happens when you have players who can provide through balls and overlap well. great stuff
Leao 2 assists, top player
correctamundo mate. leaonaldo fenomeno, the king henry 2.0 has arrived to claim his throne
man, ibra – theo – leao combo is so deadly. cant wait for rebic to play rw/am to spice up the attack even more
I would love to see that but Pioli would never do that
aint that sad? rebic occasionally played am at frankfurt and he’s clearly better passer than brahim. brahim should fight for rw spot with messias and rebic should play am, at least until proper playmaker like adli comes
It is actually. Pioli has lot’s of good qualities but he barely change his mind about players positions.
Diaz doesn’t have the physical presence of a good AM. He may be a good winger but I’m even doubtful about that. The sparks & speed is lacking.
brahim plays exactly like ribery or giuly. he has sparks and speed but his vision is way lower than that of a playmaker’s
I don’t think Braham has the strength either he can get bully easily.
well, if small magicians like ribery, giuly or even littbarski and haessler could do it then surely brahim can do it too. its up to john malkovich to play him in his actual position
Ribic can assist and shot well which makes him viable for multiple positions.
nice technical foul by tonali. that way he will be suspended for next match and not vs juve or inter. smart boy
And getting some rest as well.
Theo is also on yellow I think though.
correctamundo mate. he better get his yellow vs genoa and let kerkez play vs spezia. that boy kerkez can play
another convincing win by john malkovich boys. its nice to see that lately milan boys always try to take initiative to score right at the start of the match and then try to kill the game off rather than sitting back defending. elite winning mentality. great aggresive offensive display by the boys. maignan rarely did anything because the defence in front of him played so well. both kalulu and gabbia played like veteran and its nice to see gabbia took one for the team when he did technical foul to prevent dangerous counter attack by venezia. theo has improved his… Read more »
Great result against a very poor opponent.
We are lucky to have these games to bring players like Gabbia and Baka up to speed.
Leao and Theo are looking to be back in hot form, great to see Rebic too.
The big tests for our young defence is still ahead, hopefully we will recover players soon. Inter and Juve will be a huge challenge.
The midfield is holding strong for now. We do need back up soon though. So hopefully kessie and Bennacer come back fit from Afcon
So basically I just relocated and I thought the game is at night time. 🙂
I took a nap & we won 3-0. Not a good sign! I think I should sleep through all our games from now on!
Anyway. Based on the comments it was an easy game.
It was a very straight forward game.
Actually less stressful than usual which is nice.
Hope you had a good nap!!
Rebic was so off! I hope he gets his form back
It’s normal players gets off from the injury. Give a few games so they can adapt.
who will replace Tonali next match?
Maldini jr is not Milan’s material. too bad
What happen with Diaz? He is still not back to his best performance
Other teams has figured out how to deal with him: put a big body on him and stick to it.
lyon are currently leading 1-0 vs star studded team psg. who scored, u ask? silly question. of course the former ligue 1 monthly mvp, the trequartista vero, de facto #10 of ac milan, lucas “too brazilian” paquelme.
man, i REALLY cant wait for next season when this magician, hauge, pobega and especially andriy “the giant” silva come back to milan to build another dynasty, oh wait
I taught we sold them
Broken record. Yawn
I wish Lucas paqueta was still at milan, I have a feeling he would have done better than brahim diaz in the no. 10 role
