Cmon lads we can do it, fight for every ball!!


Been a while been tense like this,hope for the best Milan forza we going through


Tough match, I have my doubts with this system but it’s tailored against Conte so I’ll have faith in the mister. Forza Milan.


We need proper rw. And why is Bena missing


Brahim Diaz so frustrating to watch, just take the damn shot. Two times in front of open goal and he didn’t shoot even once. Hope it doesn’t come back to bite us.


Tonali has been bad lately wtf was that ??!?


Bad? That kid worked his socks off this evening, covering for reckless Krunic.


I think he needs a rest. He’s been playing non stop so he is probobly fatigue.


Origi is the worst signing in Milan history.


I think it’s because we are forcing him in this ST position, which he kinda is not. He’s super good at finishing and powerful long distance kicks, but he’s of a different breed to that of Giroud. We should use him as vice-Leao, imo. Less in technique departament but I think he should suffice and we should start using CDK as CF/ST. I think with a little training from Giroud for learning how to use his head for scoring, he should be good to go. He has height, can hold the ball upfield, is creative to make interesting decisions on… Read more »


Lol you talk like origi is still a youth prospect, the dud style of play ain’t changing the only thing that can happen is him downgrading


cause misplacing players isn’t a thing in football and he’s 27 not 35…


Wasn’t pretty but we made it.


I can’t describe how happy I am.

I don’t care for those who expect us to be at this stage just because our colours.

This match ends an 11 year hiatus where Milan failed to be among the very best.

With Krunic, with Messias and with a coach no one wanted. A 200 minutes masterclass where our coach told Conte how 343 is played. What a joy.

This is Milan, only Madrid can match its spirit. Forza Milan.


Messias at RWB, like Saelemakers makes sense. They are hard workers, but they aren’t that technicial nor have great reflexes to be attackers, in this case RW. the shift to 3-4-3 helped us a lot. hopefully, we can start using Origi as LW and not ST and give that role to CDK, imo he can turn into a high class Firmino-esque CF. If we can keep Brahim, we would literally need 3-4 quality aquisitions. RW, LB, CM and maybe CB and loan out until Kjaer contract runs out, hence first 3 should suffice.


We need two wingers, that’s for sure. L n’ R.

I can’t figure CDK out. Plays like a winger, think like a midfielder, and shoots like a GK. His physique is also awkward, he is 1.90m but weaker than Castillejo, WTF?

Adli is ready, CDK needs another year at least.

I ask Sergei Milinkovic-Savic and Dybala. Those are the men we need.


somehow we need to figure out our right side. There is a huge difference between Leao/Theo and Diaz/Messias or whoever plays there. It was a problem with the 4-2-3-1 and it is still a problem now. It is a little more hidden now because on our current 3-5-2-1 we need them less technical and offensive and more hardworkers and defensive. but still.. it aint pretty

Calm down

If we use 3-5-2-1 we’ll be banned!! But agreed Messias and Salad are so equally insufficient that I don’t care who plays. Salad just runs. Messias don’t even run but at least scores 5 goals a season but can’t do anything to standard. Salad would run and run ,twist and turn then flick the ball behind for the opponent to collect. He’s just terrible. Don’t know why the owners won’t pull some money to buy Ziyech or some tricky attacker like Ikone, Boga


not going for Dybala was a mistake and CDK played amazing games in UCL, under Brugge. He played CF there


We had a handbrake called Gazidis and now is called Cardinale. This only makes Milan’s story even better.


hope they learn from this time and sign Asensio…

Gbenga AJOSE

Imagine how many people come here to male comment tonight. If we had lost , the haters who claimed to be Milan fans would have trooped in here like a swam of bees ready to stings the team.


A few weeks ago some were says PioliOut lol. They just want to be a part of the club.


There is a case for both arguments. We clearly arent playing at the level we did last year and are still fighting for a top 4, which is far from guaranteed. Having said that, Pioli took some risks, changed formation, made some decisions and it aint pretty but we are getting the job done.


Great technical quality play from the coach and players and thanks to Arrigo Sanchi and Capello for their advices to the coach
let enjoy the victory tonight but our owners should try to improve the quality next season
inter should try and qualify before dreaming to face Milan because Milan is going to the semifinals against any team as we are giant of Italy in Europe forza Milan


Excessive back pass and missing scoring chances should be addressed asap by Pioli.
Nevertheless feels great and even better seeing PsG and dollaruma crashing out before us.


Sure the loss of concentraction happens is such highly pressed game but lads were totally in control and dominated the field. We even had more shots on and off the target than Tottenham so it’s not like they were sitting at the back all the time. They know how to suffer when needed and that tells a lot about the character of the team and players.

Good mature win from this young team. Forza Milan!


So I made a huge large essay about Donnarumma but it got lost in moderation.

Donnarumma said before departing Milan that PSG had other “Ambitions”.

You are damn right Dollarumma, Milan immediately won the Scudetto and advanced in the CL while you returned home after Round 16.

Laughing my ass off.


we can start a #dollarummaambitions on twitter…


Let’s go!
