like i said, messias is very reliable goalscorer. fantastico
wow. in 1st half milan played with similar intensity as they did vs sassuolo. that was damn near perfect high tempo european football being displayed there. messias, man, guy has such brazilian flair and goalscoring prowess and guardioli really let him unleash his talent (i wished pioli could’ve come sooner, that way paquelme might have stayed).
milan are really not far now from the highest echelon of europe’s best clubs
Meanwhile, some silly fairweather fans will come and start sulking that why should Milan buy out Messias after his loan.
they just like to complain and nag, especially when they’re not agree with maldini’s or pioli’s decisions. like don corleone once eloquently said, they talk when they should listen
Of all the recent players left, I only wished Paquta to be still on the team.
correctamundo mate, he would be perfect for pioli’s milan. damn shame
promising performance by the Dane and Lazetic
