I guess Brenacer and Tomori aren’t fit yet. Best of luck boys !!! Give us hope for the return leg.

Oluwa shevy

All I have to say just give us hope for the return leg no matter what you do don’t lose on the home soil forza Milan

Ronaldinho80

Go boys just give 100percent.

Ronaldinho80

Brahimmmmmm goalllll

Jay

Let’s give it to the long through by Thiaw !

Ronaldinho80

Wtf is wrong with Tata. Kolusevski has almost intercepted his pass

Jay

Pity to see giroud doing defensive work

Dindudre

look at how good and confident Thiaw has been the past two games and tell me again how yall think Pioli is smart to have kept him on the bench for so long. don’t forget, if not for Tomori’s injury, Thiaw would have stayed on the bench! Clueless coach.

SheerWill96

I’ve said it a long time ago, the argument of him being the coach and seeing them in training is no longer valid. Must players get injured before Pioli gives chances to the new guys?

Rossi

Exactly, i remember it was same for Leao, Rebic, Tomori, Kalulu and sadly Paqueta too. Even Giroud was hardly geting any play time until Ibra got injured.

Ted

Same happened with Kalulu, he got his chance when Kjaer was injured. I would not say clueless but he takes maybe too much time integrating certain players in.

Dindudre

As a coach, if you can’t see the potential in your players, then you’re clueless. I wonder if Donaruma would have gotten a chance if Pioli was our coach then. the guy doesn’t know how to discover potential in players, he relies on clueless players like Krunic!

Jay

Pioli should grow up balls and pull out Krunic for Deketellare

Elliotazzuri

For those waiting for pioli to bench krunic, you clearly don’t know what a father can do for his son, leao, theo can be bench but krunic is special, because he is pioli long lost son

Oluwa shevy

Lol funny I just want the point the wining no matter what it takes theo is doing a wonderful job out there

Ted

Thiaw plays like a real veteran out there, really calm and composed, hope he keeps it up. Theo, Thiaw and Diaz are playing well, Krunic and Tata just reckless. Salesmaker can’t dribble, can’t take it forward, can’t pass. Saved us once but apart from that he’s just Abate v2

dan

i just realized this… Abate v2!!! it’s so true. why didnt i see this before. Abate was serviceable.

Dindudre

Take Giroud and Krunic out of this game Pls!

Oluwa shevy

Why is poili taking time to change is it when we concede

Ronaldinho80

Fuck close one for CDK

Ronaldinho80

Fuck Teo again missed opportunity

Ronaldinho80

Thiaw

Jay

Wow ! After a long time got to watch a good Milan half

Jay

Beating a PL team is all the more fun

Ted

Got to say Thiaw looks like another genius acquisition from M&M. I remeber his first game in Serie A, i think against Verona in October 2022, he had some crucial saves that game and some good ratings after. Pioli now has “a Panther trio” back there with Tomori-Thiaw-Kalulu, not to mention Magic Mike between the posts. Looking really promising for years to come.

I’m also really anxious to see Vranckx, he’s quite possibly another hidden gem. Let him loose Pioli!

Forza Milan!

Aaaaaand San Siro made 9 million euros yesterday.

Two weeks ago the market was still open. Maldini will turn into the best SD in football history with this kind of handicap.
