Good choice from pioli. Time for these guys to prove themselves. If they cannot even beat bologna, most of them have no business in any major leagues. No more excuses for any of the bench players. Kalulu, thiaw and saladmaker have already proved themselves. The rest it’s now or never.
Best comment of the day. Time for some of these guys to put up or shut up. Specially the guys up front. Origi and Rebic are “veterans”.
This is a risky business… we still have to finish top 4 for next season’s champion’s league. If not we can already say bye bye to guys like Leao, Theo and Diaz who are already being poached. I hope Pioli knows what he’s doing.
The napoli game is much more important right now! We still have games to get the top 4… napoli is 1 match! The reach the semi finals yes semi finals!!! I agree with milancrazyfan! It’s about time this set of players who are playing today…not including the 3 he mentioned proved there worthy of this great great shirt!! Saying that I expect us to win 2.1
This team should be able to win Bologna if Pioli actually allows them to play expansive game and stop with his constant back passing game style. Good luck to the lads
where to watch?
Try hesogoal or soccerstreams100.
Rebic is washed, Florenzi is washed. Florenzi’s crosses are so terrible.
I see a confident dribbler in Vranckx just like Bennacer. He’s good in a more advanced role
This team plays better than the first team and Bologna were on good form. First team will crumbled after conceding that early goal would be playing back passes all game and trying to get some goals on Leao/Diaz /Theo individual brilliance. First team can’t play football I prefer watching this even with likes of Balo Touré and Rebic. Tired of Krunic and slow back passing football.
I cant watch the match live. Based on the comments here, I pressume the lads are actually playing well?
Rebic needs to be beaten. Basic passes—Basic!!!
I’m sorry… it’s a very annoying, indisciplined football of pulling back a player. Why the he’ll did Vranxx have to do that for?
The earlier we realize how terrible of a tactics Pioli employs, the better for us. His play style is so damn terrible. You can blame the bench players all you want but the truth is he brought on some of his starters and they still can’t create anything cos of the tactics period.
Where’s the fucking penalty for a clear handball
why not looked at by var
I remember that Juve supporter cunt of a ref
ma va fanculo
The option of trying the 2nd team was not a bad idea. At least we know that CDK and Pobegba are not good enough. They are so dull in attack. Of course we know that Origi should not be playing football and should find another career now that he’s still young. The team doesn’t have the attitude to kill a game by going for goal (we saw it in Champions league against Napoli also). Diaz was unlucky and the most serious subs that came in.
Origi & de ketelare are a pair of useless Belgian waffles , unbelievably bad the pair of them
Not a bad bad bad performance from bench players, considering we were playing with 9 players for most of the game. Took the physical toll on them. Vranckx ok, rebic got an extra motivation from the captain band,ran his socks off. Ballo, at fault from first goal but he ran a lot, gave the bolgna’s right flank constant headaches with his runs. Yes he is no theo but ok today i guess. Pobega played his best game with milans shirt. Not just for the goal but he constantly won his battles in midfield and carried his team forward. Origi and… Read more »
This match was v important for our directors to contemplate Milans future. Our bench is made for Serie B hence proved and maldini has lot to do here.
A lot to do is an understatement. At least 60 % percent of those that played today gotta go. Add leao and diaz replacement, add another surprise exit equals to OMFG.
CdK maybe just isn’t cut for Milan and Serie A football. He’d probably be better off in Premier League. Are Leeds still interested?
I’ve read a few articles that they ate interested. Hope hope they make a move on him. However, when he can’t make it in seria a, there are even less chances making it in pl. Pl is fast pace league and pace or speed cdk doesnt have. But i hope they make a move.
I think Leeds wanted him as a CF. Maybe Milan can try him in that position or as a CM/RW maybe. He used to play those positions in Belgium. Just don’t play him as a 10 any more, he clearly doesn’t fit there.
Maybe you’re right. He wasn’t given a proper chance on CF position in Milan and considering we lack severely in that department… I mean he can’t be worse than Origi.
