I hope CDK get some minutes as CF or RW
CF CDK has to come, he’s tall and very creative. If he gains a bit of muscle and can become a threat in the penalty box, even just by focusing on the headers. He has the master to learn that from, aka Giroud. We should imo try Calabria in the middle with Tomori and Kalulu on the sides in CB. Saelemakers and Theo will shine, so will conversion of Adli imo. He has vision but he gets too flustered in the middle of the field cause he has to concentrate on keeping the ball, finding a solution and looking out… Read more »
Milan is in crisis. Piolis solutions : of course Krunic and Diaz..what a great coach..
Hope these two guys scored ton of goals against torino
Yeah fukin Diaz pass the fukin ball when U have the chance before you get outmuscled and dispossessed every frikin time
Milan match bundle
We need the win by any means. But we are playing bad. What happened to us? We can’t hold the ball or string more than 3 passes together. We are very disjointed
We are starting to string some passes together and get forward ,working our way back into this 1st half cmon boys
Just get Diaz off for cdk at halftime
Diaz is useless , caught in possession every time
tries to do to much instead of just playing the easy ball and keeping possession
Pioli must stop preferring Krunic over Vranckx or go
Different game same bullshit. Once a coach has loss the dressing room it’s over. You have to get the coach out of there and move on.
Why did we buy Dekettlare / adli / pobega ??to play Krunic ??
Poor poor poor 1st half. Tonali has been absent, barely touched the ball and thats bad bad bad when he is the one supposed to orchestrate. A lot of long balls since there is no1 in midfield to create something. Pioli has lost it, he’s gotta go. Maldini and co should follow him too. This is sort of like leicester, when they won the season but sucked the next, didnt reinforce right. But they were lucky enough to sack the coach early so they salvaged something out of that season.
I agree Diaz lacks vision but Giroud is more useless
Get Diaz off now and we might win
Thought pobega might get a start v Torino ahead of krunic
How didn’t that fuking go in
All we needed was the 3 points to start building up our winning mentality so no matter how the game went it was a morale booster
meanwhile Pioli has to grow up with his selections and play attacking player instead of Krunić always. CDK is more of attacking and better player to give opponents nightmares than Krunić
The 3point is ok to boost moral against Tuesday but the have was not convincing enough but atlist it’s a win let the turning point begins
