No underating of any club please Let’s be collecting our 3 points gradually and consistently.

Abati Ibrahim

They already underrated them and which is why we will lose this match.

Dan Ban

Happy to see full strength. Let’s win the game and put pressure on Inter. Hopefully we score enough goals to give tonali, tomori (coming back from injury) leao or Diaz some rest . Although , we don’t play that many games consecutively. We should be able to field a strong 11 each game

Caesar

This team is just too food to be true!!!! Forza Pioli!

Caesar

Good*

dejan10

Yep Forza Pioli – he doesn’t half as much praise on this blog as he should.

Nesta1

l messias!! Get in!!!!!!!!

dejan10

Salernitana came out like a pack of wolves as expected with a new coach but I think we’re going to get 3 tonight.

dejan10

What was Mike doing??

Raven

Being an idiot. He has done that several times and feels unnecessary, now it bite him.and everyone in the ass.

Ronaldinho80

Fuck 1 : 1

Gems

Fukin hell
thought mike had that
playing like crap
diaz can’t do anything
get Leao involved
get a ball in to Giroud
cmon ffucksake

Ronaldinho80

Yapp

Azad

I’m tired of dropping point against smal teams.maaaaaannnnn

Ronaldinho80

Guys we just need to win this one. No excuses.

Harris

Complacency! We have not won anything yet for crying out loud. I think the praises are getting into Mike’s head. What was that? Leao is just strolling up the pitch. I don’t expect them to continue with this nonsense in the second half.

Christian

Dont worry all, Ribic will save us !!!

Nesta1

He’s on for diaz

Ronaldinho80

Haha fuck man it is like you are some kind of traveler with crystall ball

Christian

I am too milanminized so I know how they breathe;)

Raven

Rebic deserves a freaking medal after this. All running like headless chickens

Caesar

Brahim is not really doing his expected duty which is to connect play between our back line and the attack. I hope he comes out of his shell in this second half

Gems

Yeah Diaz doing nothing at all
cmon score please cmon

anything but a win is a disaster here,
Thought we would win easy after early
goal , what the fucks going on

cmon Rebic

Gems

What a fukin shit show
this is fucked
un fukin believeable

Ronaldinho80

I fucking miss Kjear.

Raven

Yes, you need men like him to say chill the fuck out, we’ve got this. Something that Romagnoli can’t do. Same as Montolivo, not a single drop of leadership

Agustinar

agree

Agustinar

me too

Ranajaya

Be fair. The second goal was Tomori’s fault, not Romag’s

Ronaldinho80

I mean honestly guys you cant win the league if you are doing shit like this.

Dindudre

We have never been convincing. So here we are again. Smh

Emmy ApacheB

We are our own enemies
lazy players and by now am sure Inter will be wondering how did we beat them
we are quick to lay claim in winning the Scudetto
Never have confidence

Sebs

Don‘t really understand why milan is always struggling against smaller team. Milan can‘t afford losing points now..hope the best

Abati Ibrahim

The whole team is a garbage tonight except for Romagnoli and Tomori.

Nesta1

Rebic!!!!!!

Caesar

Damn!!! This feels like a fixed match

Oluwashevy

Honestly spoilt my whole ticket remaining just Milan and Is painful honestly my team just spoilt the whole weekend but it’s well

Christian

You are not far from the truth ….

Harris

Honestly. Shockingly, the whole team couldn’t connect two passes. This is a fixed match. Even the reliable Tonali was abysmal.

Gbenga AJOSE

I am beginning to think in your direction. Could be a fixed match.

Gbenga AJOSE

But another thing I think is that why always us ? Why Inter doesn’t lose to smaller team at the crucial stage like this ?

Agustinar

Milan has one problem that is new to the team : complacency

Agustinar

Send Diaz back. He is just to weak for serie A

Agustinar

We have the new number 10 : Rebic

Nesta1

I said few weeks ago he’s good central with a great shot from outside box, look what he did tonight. Far more effective at 10 cos diaz not good enough. Real want 22 million for him, no chance send him bk end of season and get vazquez for nothing.

Gems

Yes fuck Diaz off
He’s a huge let down
little boy trying to play a man’s game
real will never want him back
he had a chance at 1-0 that would have killed the game off

Agustinar

i’m with you

Raven

What a complete disgrace FOR FUCKS SAKES!!!! They lost their mind playing long balls, where was the possession, the cool minded players we need?! For crying out loud, this is on Pioli. The boys are reflecting the pressure and they are not expressing football. Maignan needs to know that against this kind of teams he must the only the necessary. Salermitana?! Freaking Salermitana and they almost lost?! This is a case for the counselors at Milan Lab. How can you win the league like this? This sickens me. All they needed to do was playing simple relaxed football, we have… Read more »

Fra

Please stop blaming coach!!! Let’s say tactic bad, where the hell we have seen leao, bennacer, tonali, tomori, Calabria, magnian and … make that much mistake in a simple passing!! Please stop blaming pioli at least for tonight!!!!!!!!

Raven

The players did all that they could do, but they needed direction

Fra

As I said let’s say they didn’t have any direction, let’s say coach is nowhere in the tactics, what the hell about all those mistakes that players were making?!?!? Somehow you say “players did all they could” that we were playing in final of UCL!!! Comparing the value of our players vs salernitana, we should have won even without coach please understand that!!!

The tactics are excellent, that’s why we are title contenders but if he had one influence I would say it was a negative one, the boys can’t play like that, and that will always be on Pioli. The boys were desperately trying to win while forgetting the essence of Milan.

Agustinar

He is not a very good coach. Pioli won’t bring this team to a glorious era

Gems

U can’t win the league dropping 5points to
spezia & salernitarna for fucks sake ,
2wins would have had us well placed
for a scudetto shot , but I have little hope after todays total fuck up

Fra

If I was part of the management all the players were punished somehow for this kinda attitude toward small teams.. tonight match showed whenever we are in a good position in the competition they get in the pitch as already winning the match!!! Furioussss

Agustinar

Kessie played where and did what he should be. Duo of Bennacer and Tonali shouldn’t be happen

Gems

Yeah kessie should have come back into the staring line up in my opinion

Agustinar

so far he is still our best box to box midfielder and suit to double pivot

Oluwashevy

What a bad game but all does the best didn’t ever expected this to happen I carried Milan all over my betslip it’s a sad one but I don’t know what went wrong hope there bounce back fast if we can’t beat the last team on the log now it’s a huge problem that need to be fix

Crispin George

From what I saw tonight against Salernitana, Milan is not yet ready to win the league. Every time we have the opportunity to put pressure on Inter, that is when the team will lose ridiculously to bottom table teams e.g. spezia. To win the league you must beat the bottom table teams because they are in the majority.
This team lacks ambition. Getting a draw with a team with less than 15 pts. is UNACCEPTABLE.

Raven

Professionalism is what they lacked

Harris

The team had an entire week to rest and train yet they played like shit. No one stood out. It’s just unbelievable. I think we should stop raising our expectations. No winning mentality from any of the players nor the coach. Let’s just hope for a top 4 finish. Pioli is going to come out and say Salernitana is playing Champions League football . Leao was exceptionally awful and annoying.

Agustinar

I saw many of the players didn’t at their best shape. Leao for instance

Rossi

We payed for being overconfident. You cant expect to only push in the last 20min or so and win the game.
We just walked casualy on the field before that as if the win was just gonna come to us by itself. Maignan mistakes were also from overconfidens. He did good in the previous games and it seems that it went to his head, so he startet to rush forward as if he is Manuel Neuer, something that he didn’t used to do before.

Agustinar

I hope Maignan learn something from his mistake

Azad

We don’t deserve to win the title. We are not there.
Also the management need to invest some fccccking money. We need a playermaker and proven striker.

Gems

Commentator curse talking up mike maignan
until he had a fuking nightmare,
thiught he had that covered to punch away from danger

Ranajaya

This is ridiculous. I even dared myself to compare the big three’s schedules to see if ours have some kind of advantage over the other’s. But yes, top four mentality it is, we snapped at the first challange

Ranajaya

Not defending Leao, but the boy might’ve been distracted by the verdict. Really poor performance, his touching was off.

Dindudre

I thought so too bro. He has case to be decided this week and as a human it’s normal for him to be distracted by that. The coach should have rested him in this game since Rebic was available but our “tactician” coach can’t figure that out. Smh

Ranajaya

!6 Million is not a little, even for millionaire. Glad they cleared him from that burden

Sebs

It is frustrating to see milan keep droping points against lower table team. I am not sure whether it is something to do with mentality or mindset of the players who tend to underestimate the weaker opponets.
Leao run a lot with ball and lost it. Annoying. Despite his goal, Rebic seemed had smoked before match, his touch at most occasions just like amateur footballer.

Shaka

If you can’t win games like this, don’t expect the title. Overconfidence kills. Sloppy play from all the players. They do this often and it’s unacceptable.

Agustinar

now we have found our best 4 attackers. pacy-tricky-dribbler at LW. composure-header-finisher at RW. medium shooter-quick reaction-header at Second Line. Header-back to goal-flick on at CF. A complete combination to guarantee goals. Leao-Rebic-Messias-Giroud should play together more. They will be very strong. Their combination will scarry any teams

Agustinar

The goal conceded is because personal wrong decision: Maignan and Romagnoli who chased the opponent to the side and leave Tomori with 2 meters striker. But I like the combination of our 4 attackers since Rebic in. I hope Pioli learn something from this

Oluwashevy

This weekend in Italy is something else inter trailing well it’s for our own good

Nesta1

I know but it makes our result even worse in a way. If we won we would have 2 more points on them, we do this all time

Phildadon1899

Not really. It helps us. Would have been nice to have the 2 extra points. But at the end of the day I trust pioli more than inzaghi to rebound. Inzaghis lazio teams were notorious for starting hot and then fading.

Ranajaya

Yeah, Inter’s player acted so cockily before the derby. They act like they are back-to-back winners in 3 consecutive year.
I think their rhythm somehow disturbed by the derby lost, yes they won in the coppa after that, but they are starting to feel the pressure.
That spitting sc*mbag Lautaro and Dzeko are struggling to score goal. I wish we can pile that up in the next derby.
Napoli is doing well, but Spaletti is not a scudetto material, they will somehow slow down, the problem is neither our couch

spencer

im really starting to few for Italian football. The league is suffering, even the so called top teams can’t even compete in Europe anymore. I wonder if an Italian team would ever win the ucl trophy ever again.

Oluwashevy

For the time been there was a time Italian league dominated Europe as well but now it’s English all through maybe psg and Bayern for now but with the right players I think Milan will give a shout to it once more once it comes to Europe milan has DNA on it that’s what am sure off

Oluwashevy

All the top 5 teams no one could win this weekend hope it’s not all match fixing lol anyway the result went our way tho

Milan10

watching cagliari – napoli, and ex milan’s primavera bellanova is just so awesome

dan

with Napoli losing, Serie A is crazy. It goes to show, no team is immune to bad games. in a season, whoever is the most consistent wins. —I still think it was a missed opportunity for us. Salertinana is the WORST team in serie a.

Oluwashevy

It shows the weekend was not for the big boys irrespective of who your opponents is kinda of suspected match fixing most especially Milan game because it’s a most win match and salertinana are the worst team playing with Milan the consistent team win the league but am sure we are qualifying for champions league
