Happy Good Friday and a good win for Milan as well
Kalulu is a much better crosser than Calabria and Florenzi joined together. Great goal!
Kalulu is pure gold, a wonderful player for any team
Salamakers is a disgrace to football..wtf
Someone reset him to factory settings
His last 5 matches has been a disgrace, worst than Borini. He reminded me when Abate joined the attack.
How this team is leading Serie A with those two on the right?
I think we can all agree that Gabbia should be sent to Seria B. Alexis has had enough. He should go to Spezia. Let’s hope they win tonight.
Are we playing 433?
At san siro tonight!!!
What an atmosphere.
Great to see the boys live, even met super pippo!!
Saladman is even worse live
Great game so far, but we need quality In attack, CF and RW proven not some average Jo, krunic can leave he is not needed
Difference between saladman and messias,one can score goals other can’t. Pioli just uses saladman for energy and keep shape, then brings messias on against tired defenders.Back to top of league, only lost 4 all season,lets keep it going and win that title. Sounds like we may get new owners soon, very rich ones!
Having seen Saladman in the flesh tonight, i can firmly say hes not a player.
I could have done better, honestly!
Theo struggled and fell over alot.
Tonali was good but quiet.
Bennacer was everywhere, very impressed.
Leao had his moments, boy he is fast.
Tomori was wonderful and the crowd love him, think he enjoys playing in italy.
Kalulu,, what can u say, he is just pure class, wherever he plays
What a signing tomori was, and kalalu is so good for his age and will get even better
This scudetto just twisting wish it could come back to our favour again nice display yesterday from the boys if we had converted all our draws with the minor team am sure by now we would have been crowned Italian champion
I wish this super rich new owner would really comes and bring us to the old level where we were. No need to let loose our best players anymore because of the low salary cap.
Then we can start buy the best players available, starting with our most needed positions.
Salary cap is there because our previous “super rich” owners almost bankrupted the club, left AC Milan in huge debt, buying players with no turnover. Super rich means nothing when club’s turnover is non existant. Everything could be different should new owners sign massive commercial contract with one if their companies. Like City did with Etihad. And build stadium asap.
Good win and a solid performance from the guys.The back line got another clean sheet to boot, with a magnificent save by Maignan late in the game to deny what looked like a sure goal. Maignan has been one of the revelations this season and one of the main reasons we remain in contention for the scudetto. I’m thrilled at how our goalkeeping drama/fiasco turned out. Milan definitely won! That kid Kalulu just shines regardless of where he is on the pitch. A rare gem. Gabbia did well, he kept it pretty simple and didn’t take many risks. Doesn’t seem… Read more »
