Well thats our best starting 11,so hopefully they can do the business.
Time to get in top gear
Yeah definatley best line up, looks strong
Let’s show inter who rules Italy. Forza Milan!
The fact that we cant build any form of attack from the center of midfield for the last games and the beginning of this one worries me. We can only create from the wings. Hopefully, we’ll get better in that deprtment.
There you go, shinter scores. Thank you management for not finding a kessie replacement. Instead, relying on leg glued tonali.
Tonali just intercepted the ball and assisted Leao.
Tonali just created another scoring chance (so far 3 this game) 2 to Giroud,1 for Leao.
True, i was a bit harsh on him, because of the goal. Angry i guess, as a fan.I’ll take it back though. However ben and tonali are kind of one of the same. We do need a true box to box player.
I admire your passion.
Now to the game: If you have noticed that we were slowly dominating the game, then you would understand it was due to our front line and mid. Tonali can be box to box. He has been if you watch games carefully. Tonali is usually everywhere (definition of box to box).
Thats his role yes i do see that. Doesnt mean that he the best in that role. Yes the goal came from him. However, deep midfield is what suits him the best, just like ben. Doesnt mean he is a bad player or anything. He’s got a great future. Maybe he’ll evem grow into that role. Hope so.
At least you can admit it. Respect
We do miss a Kessie type, big time tho
That goal hurts… but the game so far is good.
Messias has poor ball control
Tonali with interception and assist = Leao goalllll
Great response from the team. Andiamo leao.
Slow build-up play and nonexistent midfield; Milan in summary.
This Pioli does not know how to celebrate goal…
Well done Leao
Loving the tempo right . Go milan.
They play great! But yeah, we do need a new Kessie
Right side is literally nonfunctional
Throw in Origi, Rebic, Adil or even Dest, these players can’t perform worst than Junior. Pioli should make this change!!!
I would still keep Junior for another 10-15 minutes just to exchange their energy. Even though he was the weakest link, there is still value there.
Yeaaahhhhhhhhhhhh. Way to go giroud. Great pass from the one and only leao. Gooooo milan
Leao for a brace~!@@@
Ahahahahahahahahaga leaooooooooooooooo. 7 mil give it to him NOW.
Omg what a goal by Leao
leaonaldo fenomeno the henry 2.0. enough said
Beautiful, Leao has to be extended, to the buffoons who criticize him silence!
Why is the score showing 2-3 in favor of inter? Please, do the needful.
Come on boys, tighten it up back there.
Our center of the midfield becomes vulnerable since Ben-Tonali play together. Pobega should play there pairing up with one of them. The center back too. Kjaer should be back there, play Kalulu back to back with Calabria on RB
Don’t understand why Pioli took off CDK while Messias is still on, he should try Dest.
CDK has a yellow that we do not want to risk.
Anytime the ball is played behind Calabria, it’s a big chance for Inter. He’s lack concentration and pace sometimes
Give them hell origi.
Has diaz touched the ball yet?
Just made a good recovery.
Are these players allergic to playing simple balls? Is the fancy hold up play really necessary, especially in our half?
Calabria’s pace and lack of concentration is definitely a problem.
The most annoying, scumbag award goes to turkish kebab.
He is definitely trash like I claimed from the start. We can just be glad that he is gone.
Bravo guys important win
I freaking love this team!!! ❤️
Not sure why Origi played kind of selfish?
He was definitely selfish. We could have scored like 2 more goals if he wasn’t that selfish. Smh.
Daft player, zero tactical awareness. The management chosing him over Belotti was quite stupid.
Easy guys. 1st game that he plays in a long time and in the derby none the less. Give him time
Just out of curiosity, if he keeps play like this, this can hinder our momentum.
He played against Atalanta. Nonetheless, I get your point which is definitely the more reason he needs to take it slow and understand the teams chemistry before trying to pull off those silly stunts he tried tonight.
Totally disagree. Origi is better than Belotti and he can also play LW or RW. He’s more athletic and better with the ball at his feet.
You must be joking!
Dude, the stats speak for itself. Origi probably have never amassed 10goals a season his whole career.
That was the most selfish display of football that i have ever witnessed. The guy just kept shooting from every position. Didn’t pass even once, we could have scored at least one more if he wasn’t so selfish. I hope Pioli talked with him after the game. That kind of selfishnes might cost us valuable points in some other games.
Your right, i was shocked. Literally never seen a player be so selfish, not even a yout teamer. I hope Pioli gives him a very stern talking to. Unacceptable
If Leao wants $7.5mil, we should definitely pay him that immediately cos the more he keeps playing well, the more his stock rises and his wage demands will be rising too. So, we should get it done now before they start demanding 10million.
For the first time I see Tomori a bit sloppy
Tomori is a smaller CB, he is fast but not the most strong CB. His speed helps him covers well.
I’m a little disappointed, I was expecting a clean win with a 2 goal difference…but it is what it is 🙂
Oliver Twist !
Well that was an exciting game of football. Milan were beautiful for an hour and then collapsed. Not something we will get away with in CL. We need to kill games of or at least control them. In the end we were really sweating, that mhikitarian shot could easily have hit the net. Leao was brilliant, he needs to do that more regularly. Our team plays great high intensity football, but they get tired. Hopefully our new recruits settle soon so we have more options. Diaz did well on the rw when he came on, we def need an upgrade… Read more »
Also, the changes were OK for me. Luckily for us, Krunic is injured, if not Pioli would have been tempted to go defending after the 3rd goal.
2 silly avoidable yellow cards by Theo and Leao also.
In all well done lads. It was an entertaining Derby
The only thing i forgot to mention was Origi, the most selfish performance i have seen in a long time.
If he wants to be part of this team that has been so united, he needs to buck up his ideas. We’ll give him a pass as hes not played much but I’m sure Pioli will be having words with him
Jesus Christ the guy’s just joined us and already the moaning begins.
He actually joined at start of summer.
I believe its fair comment as most people noticed the same. I’ve also said to give him a pass on this occasion. So not sure what your problem is
Where are your brain dead comments now? Inter is better right? They had the better transfer window right? Giroud is garbage right? Gotta sell leao right?
you shouldn’t be allowed to comment on anything anymore. Literally everything you have said the opposite is true. You should be apologizing to this board for making us read your incessant whining week after week.
Those 2 yellows are well deserved for a derby
Tonali was the MOTM for me.
Great instinct from Leao. Please show up at least 80% of the games! Especially against the low blocks! That is his problem I guess. Because he needs the opposing team to be attacking – so that they leave some space behind for Leao to attack. Need to add another dimension to his game so that he can be effective against low blocks.
Now, time for CL #8.
lol come on mate, obviously leaonaldo was motm. its not even close. ben performed just as good as tonali and maignan was just better, more decisive than both of them. above all, king henry 2.0; 1 assist, 1 goal with his weaker foot and an absolute ronaldo-esque magic. can’t beat that. contender for perfomance of the season for milan
