Lmao, Milan is fucked big time

Emmy Apache

Honestly Milan is garbage and I wonder if the management or the owners even love Milan rather than business perspective we can’t except any success with this type of display and players we know where the problem is and we have opportunity to fix it but our love for free agent players will never allow us think positively. look at Origi and Dest they are jokers Milan became popular today because we bought great players then who created this onion we are enjoying today Our owners instead of investing In good quality players are talking about building a new stadium… Read more »

Same to you Apache nice one


Really? There are still people out there who need explanation on this? Own stadium will bring in more money, make us sustainable and selfsufficient. Owning a stadium is crucial to having more money for players of high calibre and be able to pay higher salaries.


This team is weak without Leao, Theo and Giroud. Adli, Dest and De Ketelaere are pure garbage. Milan should have invested the 35m in Noni Madueke who scored 2 great goals against us from RW instead of paying for De Ketelaere who is nowhere near top quality.


Yes buy this guy madueke
he looks quality
Milan need maignan back big time
thought he’d be back by now for sure
these 2 keepers mirante & tata are rubbish ,
milans transfers before the season are costing us big time , de kateleare ,origi ,dest & even pobega
aren’t up to the standard we need to win scudetto again and go ahead in champions league


We lost the president
Arguably our best midfielder
and gained fucking nothing
so we have become weaker than last season


Dest is a disaster , cost us the loss v Napoli when Pioli foolishly threw him in the deep end .
hopefully he doesn’t play again before his loan is terminated


Wtf is the point of this transfer window??? We FUCKING suck honestly… Wtf is happening with this team. We have been slowly degrading since winning last season. Dest, rebic, adli, cdk, salads are not ready or quality enough to start for Milan.


You’d expect a title winning team to improve not get worse


Everytime we play against European teams outside of Serie A, the expose how terrible of a coach Pioli is and they also expose the terrible quality of players we have. But I still believe our team is not as bad, we just have a coach that is not a tactical genius but thinks he is. I see teams buying quality players and adding more players to their teams and yet we’re busy talking about extending 37yr old Giroud’s contract when that should be the least of our worries. Smdh!!!


It’s crazy how much Dest, Adli and de Katelaere are underperforming. On paper all of them are quality talents, but this year something isn’t working. Adli is very creative player, de Katelaere is without a doubt one of the best purchases we had in recent seasons and I remember 2 years ago people were killing each other for Dest. They are in similar situation as were Theo, Tomori, Leao, Kessie, Benaccer, Calabria in 2020, they need Pioli to shift their gears a little bit. Other than that GK, RW, CM/CDM and LB are a must, imo. Cragno, Parisi, Fratessi and… Read more »


If we just injected quality into the team like Napoli we would leave serie a behind. Instead, management chooses to operate like atalanta.


Napoli also spent pennies.
