saladmaker AND kruniesta playing together. jeez guardioli, how many times do i have to lecture you: play rebic or brahim as rw and creative cm like ben or tonali as makeshift am. you’re almost as dumb as the uninitiated who said leao’s a flop and milan should get rangnick. almost

Nesta1

Very worried bout saladman starting, I can only think he wants to bring messias on when they tired and he will get more space. But yes I agree should be playing rebic from start even as a 10 or diaz right wing, anyone but saladman, he offers no threat from a forward position. Hope he proves me wrong tonight and puts a performance in.

Milan10

milan attack looks so much better with rebic because he’s the only attacker who can pass. no way quality coach like conte would bench rebic so he could play salad or krunic

SJF

Why is bennacer not starting over Kessie?
Id prefer to see him and Rebic instead of Alexis.
Krunic is worth a go at AM, given our options. He can shoot pretty well

davide

link pls

Ronaldinho80

Bravo Sandroooooo

Ronaldinho80

Fuck of

Ronaldinho80

Fuck Calabria olso has missed.

Gems

Yeah of course they disallowed it,
haven’t even showed a replay or the line to prove it
fuck off

K INC

Why not have Bennacer and Rebic starting? Why is Pioli such a buffoon?

Ronaldinho80

And now we are fucked

Rossi

Kessie playing like shit, constantly losing the ball in the middle. Like it wasnt enough that he sabotaged us in the CL.

Ronaldinho80

Agree man

milan4lyf

Whats with these longballs when we don’t even have the quality up front to receive even ONE of those balls?

GG. If we keep playing our shittyass lazy longball bullshit game like this after this goal, we don’t deserve Scudetto.

Phildadon1899

What a joke. Inter has bought and paid for the scudetto already. It’s obvious.

Nesta1

Get rebic and zlatan on start of second half let’s not fuck about

Giacomo

I don’t believe in Pioli anymore.

Dan Ban

He’s got us 2 games away from a title. I’m sure you also gave up on tonali last year (and love him this year) . We gotta look at the entire body of work. He’s done pretty good considering where he got the team.

K INC

Tonalissimo!!!

Azad

Verona cost us 3 League titles. Fk them really.

AC Milan

Tooooonnnaaaaaallllliiii!!!!!

Ronaldinho80

Thank god we have Leao and Tonalii

spencer

That goal was Calabria’s fault. Kalulu had the man covered, my leave ur maker and allow the man to make a run inside the box. Calabria can honestly be replaced by Kalulu when Botman arrives. And as for Giroud he better stop all these his useless flicks everytime.

milan4lyf

Leao..

What a goal.

Our whole attack is literally useless without this one player.

AC Milan

Two, you mean 2

milan4lyf

Amen to that bro.

Nesta1

Yep, defo need zlatan and rebic in team to help with goals. What’s saladman stats for assists and goals this season as a forward player? I bet theirs defenders with more goals than him

milan4lyf

Yep. Rebic is better in RW than Saele and Messias combined. And we do need Zlatan for Giroud. But Giroud is rendered useless because of the Tactics mostly. The whole formation and the team is built for build up play but for some reason Pioli is having the team playing long balls.

If we win, it definitely won’t be for Pioli today for sure.

leaonaldo fenomeno magico

p.s. verona’s goal should’ve been disallowed for handball but doveri is certified interista. a pic of him at the airport sporting inter travel bag can prove it

Phildadon1899

I said the same thing. If you’re going to check the first tonali goal. It took 3 minutes for an answer. (Probably had to call the Chinese consulate) and then come back and allow their goal in seconds with clear hand ball it makes you wonder. I watched inter Napoli and barella should have had a red card on their second goal. Somehow it stood. I’m worried that they have already put money in the right peoples pockets. I’ve seen 2 penalties today for Milan that weren’t even free kicks but corners lol

Milan10

now the question is: why would serie a let an interista to officiate milan match?

Folumilano

it’s like this ref has been told to make is loose, he looks sad for our equalizer

Milan 15

We going to win either he likes or not only we need to be calm

AC Milan

This ref is not bad. We will see.

Nesta1

Tonali gooooiiaaaaaallllll

Milan10

fantastic solo run by leaonaldo fenomeno the henry 2.0 again. also, like i said, tonali is modric 2.0; he’ll be much better playing more up front as am

Ronaldinho80

Yeaaa Leao and Tonalii great job.

K INC

Tonalissimo x2!!!

milan4lyf

LEAAAOOOO again.

Goddamn..

Renew the contract as soon as possible. Hope Maldini Gives the guy what he wants and confirms his stay.

Gbenga AJOSE

I don’t know what they are waiting for until Real Madrid or Mancity come with armed robber salary , that’s when we will wake up…Leao is tending towards the best in his wing.

Ronaldinho80

Dont get me wrong Leao has always been fast but i think hevis getting even faster and faster. This guy is now sprinting like Henry.

Ronaldinho80

Definitely best LW in serie a

Rossi

I think we shouldnt close down this early with only one goal lead. Don’t just give the mid of the pitch to Verona. Also Rebic should come in for Giroud perfect for counters now as Verona is opened up.

K INC

Hate when teams do that, almost always backfires.

milan4lyf

Good sub.. Bennacer for Krunic. But shockingly, Krunic played better than Kessie this match.

Phildadon1899

Not surprising at all. Kessie head is already in Barcelona. I would have sat him the rest of the year. He’s almost a liability at this point.

Ronaldinho80

We lost the best keeper in serie a and now we have the best keeper in serie a if Maldini is not genious i dont know who is

AC Milan

Correction, we lost a snake and got the best GK in serie A.

Milan10

remember when milan10 said florenzi the euro winner would be useful squad player and that he’s NOT rw? well, there u go.
lesson: just read what milan10 said and agree with every single word

Serpent of mondinina

Forza Milan, one win and a draw all we need

Nesta1

Florenzi! Goooooaaaaallllll

Ronaldinho80

Bravo Florenzi we are safe now

Emmy Apache

Reporting life from Verona
we are all happy here and out numbered their fans
I flew in last night to support our great club
this victory worth every stress and money spent
we are Milan
forza Milan

From Toronto Canada

Milan10

it was maldini who brought in pioli, ibra, theo, giroud, leao etc so thank you bandiera. we true milanisti salute u capitano

Gbenga AJOSE

We now await the match of the season against Atalanta coming next Sunday at San Siro !

milan4lyf

The first half was a disaster. But It was a much better second half. Good subs by Pioli but bad tactics almost had our asses handed to us in the first half. Calabria is very weak against pacy wingers. Overall good game from the team. One of the best second half games we played this season and I am glad none of our players were suspended. Only 2 more match to go. Next season I would prefer Kalulu to be our first choice RB if we get Botman. Tomori, Botman, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Gabbia should be the core of our defense… Read more »

AC Milan

Maybe have Calabria shift to DM. He has played there and he was pretty decent.

Rosso Joburg

While Calabria was not good yesterday he has been the best defensive RB over the last 2 seasons. Sometimes it’s just a bad day.

SJF

He’s not in the best form but as you say he has shown himself to be a valuable player in the last few years.
If we get a new CB like botman or Bremer (i think hes wonderful), then next season kalulu/calabria will be great options for rb.

Whatever money comes in it is vital to have some bandieras in our side who bleed red and black like calabria. You cannot buy heart and soul, only cultivate it

Rossi

Great game. Other good news, Cagliari manage a draw today. That means that they are still in the race for staying in Seria A and that they will defenetly give thier all to get a point from Inter in their next game. So it wont be an easy game for Inter who will play Juve in the cup mid week as well.

Oluwa Shevy

Inter last form of attack and hope towards this scudetto is on Atlanta to take point from us and trust me once we go pass Atlanta inter will lose up and drop point in the last match but as it stands now we are crushing anybody even if Liverpool comes our way at this point we are winning the spirit us high the moral is high the mentality is high good work boys nice one 4 more point to go

Gbenga AJOSE

This is good ..I have thought of this as well.

Martin Bernhard

Forza Milan, great win and verona isn’t an easy place to win and this match particularly had me worried but now max 4 points to go and the scudetto is in the house but lets get them all.

SJF

Huge result and finally a few goals too!
2 tough games ahead so hopefully the boys can keep it up.
Atalanta will be pushing hard for a European place and sassuolo always cause us problems.
As you say lets win them all and finish clear on top, like true champions

Amos K. Dennis

Little by little, we’re getting there…Liberia is following.

Oluwa Shevy

The scudetto boils down in Sansiro with Atlanta it’s a most win match not even a draw a most and with the support of the fans and the form of the players we are in a better position to ruin the night for Atlanta as for sassoulo it’s a revenge we are giving them a most Win on that night but we never can tell Cagliari might just gift us the league before then because there are fighting to remain in top flight as well have a blessed week fellow milanista

although Giroud has got us a few vital goals, he seems to disrupt the style of play for milan.His flicks never goes to anyone.
time to invest in a world class striker

Oluwa Shevy

I don’t know if anyone notice rebic he is good in cf most of the times and his passes are very decisive atimes he was an upgrade to giroud in yesterday game

SJF

He definitely makes our attack more dynamic!

Last night I was taken back of how pioli changed the formation and went to 4-1-4-1 from word go…lots of fans say first half was not good but we dominated for first 20 mins it’s right then it slowed a bit but we kept up the tempo finally rewarded with a goal before half time. Hats off to leao and Sandro. Sandro was much higher the pitch and it was joy watch him take the center stage at such 22 years of age….two more games I don’t know it just feels title is ours at San siro….pioli literally proved with… Read more »

Oluwa Shevy

At the beginning of the season no one dreamt of scudetto as at then just to qualify for CL and here we are now title contenders one more thing the takeover can someone please give me the update it’s been cold no news yet can’t wait for better signings from maldini

Man4t

We are heading back where we belong, forza Milano. Scudetto is just around the corner. All the way from Bongo Dar es Salaam, Tanznia

SJF

Unfortunately i could only follow the game on my phone, due to family commitments.
Can anyone tell me what our midfield formation was? Clearly Tonali played further forward.
Was kessie DM with Krunic and Tonali further forward? As in 4-1-4-1?

Emmy Apache

To be honest with this victory means everyone played good but special kudos to Tonali for giving all his life yesterday
he was ready to give his life for us to have the 3 points
I was so happy as when we beat inter

Emmy Apache
