WTF I get that confidence is low but they need to remove their heads off their asses.
Same issue as day 1 of the season. Defense getting exposed. Totally falls on pioli. Havent bashed him until now. Keeps playing pobega, krunic or whoever in an advanced postion. Stupidity at its finest. Playes that cant produce shit, they are a lot more productive as defensive midfielders.
Two goals down the moral of the boys are low losing this game the scudetto will be hanging on a thread
Yeah 2 -0 bye scudetto, hello mid table.
What the fucks going on
it looks like we are playing with 9men
fukin ball watching again
wake up mother fuckers
yeah ciao scudetto
Get kessie back for fucks sake
sell pobega to Torino
take Diaz off please
I’d rather watch porn than waste my time watching this shit show!!!
I’d rather watch porn anyway
Pioli is such a horrible coach. Set pieces keeps being the best way to score Milan and yet he keeps playing Kalulu in the CB position while Thiaw is on the bench?! Lazetic cannot be so bad/worse than Giroud but this guy keeps keeping him on the bench without even giving him a chance. This guy is so clueless, his tactics also shows how clueless he is. Smh.
Lol lazetic can not be so worse than giroud, how dumb is that what quality has he shown before/ after being bought, thiaw over kalulu seriously wtf is thiaw and where was in playing before coming to Milan, my point is our bench doesn’t have quality, we buy average players and pioli is doing the best with them, if we want to advance management better start buying quality player, just look at botman we missed out on
Yes our bench is crap. Pioli hasn’t been doing himself any favors either. Those crappy players such krunic and pobega playing up front thats totally on pioli. Their characters scream defensive midfieldrs nor offensive midfielders. 0 creativity and passes.oir defense has been conceding goals very easily this season and yet he hasnt addressed the problem.
If our management spend 30m+ on a player pioli will not bench him unless he flop’s, the reason pioli still use dirty like krunic is that among is average Joe of untested player, he knows krunic character more, that why he won’t use players like adill and vranck immediately, they have to work their way to first team, if Milan have boughten maybe João Felix ,pioli would have started him today or the next game
You do realize Pioli haven’t given Lazetic any opportunity right ? Who cares where Thiaw was playing before if he’s a good player? Where was Kaka playing before he came to Milan ? Where was your Botman playing before he went to Newcastle? Where was Drogba playing before he went to Chelsea?!?! The point is, where a player played before does not matter. Give them chances to prove themselves. look at our games, Calabria continues to be our weakest link but you guys are not ready for that conversation. Pioli should move Kalulu to the right back position and give… Read more »
An average player with hidden potential can become a great am not denying that, but it also a gamble, trusting lazetic to be our striker for the season base on the fact he is a young talent is a big gamble that can go wrong, for every kaka they is a pato, el sharawy e.t.c besides they are young talent whoes talent is obvious e.g vinicius junior, Rodrigo, endrick they might not have been establish when they came to Madrid but their potential was obvious, you can’t compare them to lazetic, vransk, thiaw, e.t.c
What I’m trying to say is that we won’t know they’re stars if they didn’t get the opportunities!! It’s all about opportunities and being given a chance bro.
Lol, do you know how many young prospect exist, for our forward we have nastic, lazetic, Colombo, one swidish boy have forgotten his name e.t.c how many matches do you want to scarifies giving them chance, pioli would have been sacked by now if he did that and it failed, because 1,2,3 matches is not enough game to say someone is a flop, Milan can’t avoid to be testing every cheap prospect, we have to do it the Madrid way, or keep hoping that one day we finally get a prospect whose talent is first team ready
We’ve got better players in the youth squad than some of shit we buy I tell
but they can’t get a go and end up doing well at other clubs
Exactly mate, if we want to buy foreign prospect better to buy people like they vini, Rodrigo, endrick e.t.c than lazetic who is in the same category as Colombo and nastic
Thiaw is ordinary sorry mate
did u see him playing centre back in the friendly v Liverpool
we would be leaking even more goals with him at cb sorry
What Ten Hag is doing with Man Utd shows exactly what and how a to coach a young team. I’ve been saying it since last 2 seasons, Pioli’s tactics is not good for these young players. He’s a terrible coach!!!!
It not fair to compare ten hag multi million squad, to pioli bargain buy squad, just Anthony alone cost 80m.
The comparison is absurd we can’t compare Man U squad to that of Milan is not comparable Man U spend millions on players Milan don’t and cheap things have negative effect always it’s just luck once in a while it works
Yes bro if at all we going to sign players for millions like 30m it will take two
months and two weeks if possible to renew the deal of your sporting directors alone self shows the negative sign from the start but finger cross because I hope this changes we are Milan and not some kind of cheap mid table clubs
I hope so too, if we can get one quality player this winter transfer it will boost our squad
Transfer window is open buy a quality player Milan, and stop expecting pioli to do magic with average Joe, would Newcastle have signed malick thiaw or lazetic e.t.c to take them up
The answer to our set pieces problem was botman, why couldn’t the management pay his money rather they went for malick thiaw
After 12 mins i was thinking Pioli needs to bring vranckx on for diaz to get some control.
Pobega is dangerous in the final third but it leaves a huge hole in midfield.
Also at the same time i thought bring thiaw on for kalulu (who i love) as he was having a nightmare.
There was no reason to wait and stick with a lineup that was being annihilated!!
By 25 mins we were down by 2 and it should have been 4.
If he doesn’t make changes at the break then his head is on the chopping block
Calabria is ALWAYS easily dribbled. Smh
Alexander Arnold of Liverpool lol
Bennacer dribbles a million men but can’t pass or cross to save his life.
The man handled that midfield by himself tonight. Tired as hell. Pobega was just a wrecking ball up front.
tonali was missed in that midfield the work load was just much on Ben
Yeah bennacer fucked the last pass every time today and we missed tonali
Fucking origi chance to finally do something
with that great ball from kjear
but fluffs it again , he’s useless
He is happy he signed a contract so he want to appreciate it by dribbling everyone what a game lost ground to Napoli on the scudetto. Last season When when we took over inter how many point where we trailing to them.
We desperately need our Mike back
Why do we have to depend on a injury prone GK, why can’t the club get a good back up, as a big club like Milan we should have 2 quality gk
Agree but we dont have second quality goalkeeper
The players like Theo Leao,Giroud in my opinion are getting complacent due to lack of competitor in the team. Moreover Pioli also shares the blame with this bad form. Pioli is IMO old school italian coach. He prefers proven and experienced players. He is not willing to take risk.he knows milan can‘t spend, why don‘t look at the youth departement. Milan had a lot of talents but they never really get chances at the first team except the friendlies. we had once a young proper left back named Kerkez,but Pioli was too shy to give him chance and prefered useless… Read more »
Poili like it safe he is not adventurous atimes but let’s not put all the blames alone on poili the management to are watching there know what’s right and what to do as well many scraps in the team needs to be taken off and getter better ones young lads that are hungry to play ball that will make the likes of theo Leo and giroud sit up faster and know their spot are not guaranteed
Most of the Milan fans here are not being realistic… We became Serie A champions… They sold the club to someone as broke as F**K… We lost one of our important players (Kessie) without possible replacement We have below average players parading our lineup every f**king game day, yet we fault Pioli for the management’s problem Y’all should channel the energy to the management that failed to make important investment We have been lacking a right winger since only God knows when We have been playing with form-fluctuating CAMs Our 35m Cindarella is a big FLOP (Body language sucks!) Origi… Read more »
