There’s a mistake lazio have 12 players playing

Emmy ApacheB

11

Elliotazzuri

I know we are going to win today game, but the schdeutto race is over those inter team are in form they have a large squad with quality not garbage like krunic, if the new owner don’t invest in quality attackers next season we shouldn’t think about any schdeutto, a new force is coming we better buckle up

Harris

The game has not even started, and we have conceded..

Nino

Brahim Diaz is more garbage than Krunic. In any case, the first signing the new owners need to make is for a coach who knows how to win trophies. All you people blaming the players should ask which players were playing when Milan was winning. Are they different players? No. The coach has no plan B. The season is long. Players will get injured. There forms will drop, etc. A good coach plans ahead. He doesn’t just stick to doing the same thing over and over again. The signs was there when Milan won with Kalulu scoring the sole winner.… Read more »

Phildadon1899

Take out kessie

he has checked out and doesn’t care about this game or this team anymore. Also brahim is absolute trash.

Jay

Leaos crosses are never going to reach giroud !

Dindudre

Giroud is quite bad. There’s a reason Chelsea had him coming off the bench. His flicks are horrible and he can’t shoot to save his life (last possession before half time tells it all). We have a 20 year old on the bench Pioli doesn’t wanna play. Smh
Pioli’s horrible tactics and man management is unraveling every week. Smh

K INC

Pioli out, he got up alot higher on the table than I ever thought he would but to win trophies we need a better coach; We could have won last years scudetto with better coach there was no excuse to drop so many point towards the end (didn’t we at one point almost have a 20 point lead?) We also need a right flank upgrade from top to bottom (I never want to Salamakers in a Milan shirt after this season) and we need a good 10 and younger 9 (21-25, not super youngsters like Lazetic) to play with and… Read more »

Oluwa Shevy

Poili is not a risk taker he goes with his sure bet but bet but with that it affect the other players that ness chance to prove their worth

Dindudre

This man really took out our best player on the field for Salaemakers ??!?! Wtf

Rossi

Luckly we won, but that was a very strange change. Sala has scored like 3 goals in 3 seasons, why bring him in when you need a goal? He is not someone who creates or assists either. Even the commentator questioned that sub.

K INC

Thank you Zlatan thank you Tonali!!!!!

Martin Bernhard

remember when some milan fans was of the view that we should sell or loan out tonali before we even owned him by the end of last season or some who didnt want us to buy him 😀

Niels8

Leao as well. Let’s hope for the same thing if Brahim stays.

Martin Bernhard

I agree leao has grown a lot this season and in a couple of years he will be an absolute top player if he keeps improving in some aspects of his game, I would personally be surprised if milan terminated brahims loan as some media reports has suggested lately as he would still serve as a free backup minus his salary in case we bring in some marquee additions to the cam role and maybe loan out daniel maldini so his developement doesnt completly stall.

Jay

Uffff … ibra the talisman

Nesta1

Brilliant lads, keep fighting for the title!!!!

Emmy ApacheB

I love this spirit
i love Ibrahimovic
i love Rebic
tonali calabria Tomori everyone that played today
together we are Milan
forza milan
i will enjoy this victory
i will wear my milan jersey to work tomorrow
i will fly the flag and buy coffee for everyone tomorrow
am so proud of my darling club

Rossi

And thats one of the reasons why Tonali should be played as 10 and not Kessie or Diaz.

Signor milan

Yes, Tonaliiiiii

Ted

Tonalissimo!!!

SJF

What a highly entertaining match!!

For the first time in a long time, milan looked like scoring. I have watched our terrible 0-0 draws with poor teams and knew we wouldn’t win, tonight was different, we were dangerous!
Hopefully we can keep this up

Well done Pioli, your overachieving (tho taking off Leao was confusing, I’m guessing its because he stayed on the ground when he could have scored a rebound)

Rafa was on fire, tho still often lacked end product.

Theo needs to get back scoring /assisting

Forza Milan, the dream is still alive!!

Niels8

Regarding Theo, I don’t think he will be as lethal as he was before when Leao is playing ahead of him. The reason why Theo was really productive is Rebic, who did a lot defensive work and covering as well as had more tendency to move inside, thus allowing Theo to make runs. With Leao, not only Theo has to concentrate more on defence, he is often forced to move inside as Leao usually stays wide. In the middle park there’s less space for Theo to exploit and to make use of his speed.

SJF

Good observation.

Great to see Rebic back tonight. He did well. Hopefully he can be an important asset in the final games

Roberto Giano

Leao, Ibra, Rebic should play together from now. Period. Rebic as SS. Why doesn’t Pioli see this ?

SJF

Think if we really wanted to focus on playing our best players we would have

Leao. IBRA/GIROUD. Rebic

Bennacer. Tonali
Kessie

Agustinar

Can Rebic play as RW ?

SJF

Of course he can, he is right footed and played there many times for Croatia, who have a great team

Roberto Giano

Rebic is not very good in dribbling. He shouldn’t play as LW. He plays better behind a striker. He has a good medium shoot.

Oluwa Shevy

One thing I know CL football is secure for next year even if we lose our remaining matches but still we not settling for that rather the scudetto

Oluwa Shevy I hope is not my guy that graduated from LASU

Oluwa Shevy

Not at all I graduated from Unilag smile

Folumilano

Seeing milan play with urgency expecially in the final minutes gives alot of joy, i know bologna can hold inter as inter only play in midfield and bologna is well packed in midfield area and they have a striker that should have been playing for milan. Well done boys.

Gbenga AJOSE

Inter will see hell against one of Bologna or Udinese.

Oluwa Shevy

I doubt bro there are leading already wish the ball can revert back to our court

Milanito

They sure did against Bologna today but lets hope they see some against Udinese as well.

Elliotazzuri

Gone are the days this blog use to have 300 comments, I wonder why people left

Ted

At least we have people discussing games without throwing insults to other users opinions.

Elliotazzuri

True

Oluwa Shevy

There have created their own blog precisely to abuse them self there so there no more year so far it’s been calm in here few but reasonable

SJF

So true.
People want to discuss Milan and not be subjected to abuse or the ravings of Milan10.
May peace reign!

Rossi

Well that guy argued with half of the people on this blog, so yea since he left it seems the atmosphere here improved a lot. Sadly many of the people that he was attacking left as well. Btw Bologna did their job, i was expecting a draw but it turned out even better for us. I guess we got our piece of luck, if you remember my comment from another post.. It’s all up to us now.

Milanito

I’m convinced that most of the commenters who’ve gone missing are secretly lurking around in the shadows waiting for their “I told you so” moment, where they can get another opportunity to berate the owners, management and players.

Raven

Trolls only apear when we are doing bad. That’s when their crystal ball works.

dan

watching the inter game now. What i noticed the most is their depth. They can call on Dzeko, Alexis Sanchez and Vidal from the bench. We dont really have that. Having said that, we are in this title fight till the end. It speaks volumes of our coach and our young guys.

Philldadon1899

Inter lost. Its our scudetto to lose.

SJF

What an amazing result for us!!!
For too long Inter have had a game in their pocket. Now we are clear again!
Forza Milan, the dream is alive

Milanito

I didn’t get the opportunity to watch the last two previous matches against Inter in the cup and Lazio over the weekend due to work commitments, so I opted to watch today’s game with Bologna vs Inter, with so much on the line in this final scudetto push and I am completely satisfied with the outcome. So many people had already counted us out because we gave away our lead due to consecutive draws but they never took into account what the competition might do as well. There has always been this notion that we are somehow inferior to Juve,… Read more »

SJF

Well written sir.
We may all enjoy the moment, as the journey is long and the destination but a brief stop.
We certainly have the characters and the talent to get us over the line. It’s week 34 and milan are top, interior to none

Dan Ban

Well said. We are younger and better. Ibra, Giroud and to some extend Kjaer is experience . The different is the bench. Inter calls on Alexis and Dzeko or Juan correa. We call on who? . On paper it should’ve been we have ibra and call on Giroud from the bench but we’ve had ibra injured for so long.
Our young guys are stepping up big time. But we need to address Depth.

Oluwa Shevy

Want to ask a question at the end of the league we and inter have the same point am just saying who will be crowned champion are there looking at head to head here or goal difference because I know we have a better head to head than inter but there have more goals than us but most of the cases when we are level on point when I see the log table inter are ontop so I wonder if it’s goals there are using in Italy or head to head thanks

SJF

Its definitely the head to head that counts first. So milan will win if level on points.
Hopefully it wont be that way and we can stay clear of them. We have tough teams to play but the reward is huge, so I’m looking forward to some victories

Oluwa Shevy

If that’s the case we have upper hand but the thing is we have strong fixture but am not worried the stronger the team the more we overcome them but the weaker the team we find it difficult but this last phase we crushing any team on our part

Martin Bernhard

Sif is correct in regard of the scenario of us and inter having the same points we will win the scudetto.
As things stands we will actually only need 3 wins and 1 draw to become champions in the event that inter wins their remaining matches but depending on their results 2 wins and 2 draws might also cut it for us.

Milanito

Yeah, depth is something that the management definitely will be addressing at the end of the season. We took a huge gamble on the Zlatan/Giroud combination but it looks as if it will pay off even though we didn’t get the necessary amount of minutes that was needed from Zlatan. That situation will also need to be addressed come the end of the season.

Crown

Our players are just so unpredictable, I hope they don’t give us unwanted surprises in these last rush. All we need is 3 wins and 1 draw. I hope we discover our scoring touch back… Because we seem to have forgotten how to score goals. It’s now or never.

Oluwa Shevy

Heard the new takeovers will complete the buy on Friday that’s good news and kudos to Elliot as well for balancing and clearing the debts gradually and making the club competitive once with this takeover we can buy required players we need and Milan will be a fierce and ruthless club to play

Ted

Have you seen the news? Mino Raiola passed away after sudden and short illness. It is said it happened in middle of surgery.

Ted

Update – seems it was only fake news from Italian papers. Sorry.

Míno doesn’t go down easy!

It seems the rumours linking us to Renato Sanches has slowed down a little. He’s a good player but unfortunately his injury record is a bit worrying and his price tag would likely be high, so i would not be upset if he doesnt arrive. Unless the Investcorp takeover goes through, Milan should perhaps focus on younger, lower cost, but high reward targets for midfield. My first pick would be Maxence Caqueret from lyon – young, quick, small but aggressive, skillful, vertical passing and has an expiring contract. Ederson Jose from Salernitana is another player with similar characteristics but stronger,… Read more »
