I don’t understand the idea of buying a player and not being able to trust them. Playing Kjaer, Inter’s pace might kill us in this game but I hope I’m wrong.


Not even five minutes, disgusting. First real test and were falling apart


Our defence is pathetic.

Every single time we play against a good team that plays very well, Pioli gets exposed for the terrible coach he is. Smh


No serious team will have Giroud playing their FKs. What is it with our 37 yr old players always wanting to play FKs ?? First it was Ibra, now Giroud. Smh


What kind of defensive capabilities Krunic provides year n year again he is a liability. Calabria is a no physical match.
romero jovic musah Samuel still on bench.


Seems like we have no other game plan other than relaying on induvidual briliance. Leke Theo,Leao or maybe Pulisic now too.


There are no yellows, Thiaw is playing really bad, and Reijnders, Loftus Cheek, and Krunic wouldn’t connect three passes even if their life depended on it.

Leao is missing the final touch, Giroud has no support from the middle or the right.

Why is Pioli asking the wingbacks to overlap if we play with 3 midfielders? Reckless attack from the left. Even Messias had a one-on-one against a defender, Pulisic needs to do more.

Pulsic as an ATM and chukeweze on the right wing ..4231 needed


Gotta love a goal in the rain against those assholes, Forza Milan Leao is a beast


Poor Thiaw had the worst night possible


Simone Sozza has the audacity to show Shitanoglu the Yellow not for his 100th foul but for his rude complaint.


Fuck, park the bus, break those legs before is too late…

No Tonalli no Maldini no show.


At 4-1 Inter still keeps pushing forward like they’re the ones losing. Maybe Pioli should learn something from them. Smh.


Copa and CL without goals, they invest in midfield selling our biggest asset. 1 goal, good for Pioli good for Cardinale.


Lol at those who celebrated Maldinis departure and Piolo’s continuation and mid signings. If he is not fired and major changes implemented by the winter transfer market we can kiss Leao, Theo, and Maginan goodbye next season and any hope of being relevant in the top tier of football.

#PioloOut #RedbirdOut


pioli non mangia il panetonne


I don’t see how y’all don’t see that the most embarrassing loses we’ve ever had has been under Pioli. Even a blind man can see that this guy is a fucking Terrible coach.


You are right. I was just thinking about that. We even conceeded 5 goals from Atlanta under Pioli. Remove Leao and Theo and Pioli got nothing. No tactic, just let Leao and Theo do all the work. Why do we even have a coach.


Just the goddamn long balls and expect a miracle. Even the commentators were mentioning that his tactics of having Calabria in the middle does not work against teams like inter and a smart coach should have seen that. He’s the most predictable coach I’ve ever seen. Everyone thought Frattesi was supposed to start against us but they’re all surprised to see inzaghi start with him on the bench. That’s a smart coach. Pioli is just clueless. Smh


You are clueless, Pioli is a good coach, but Inzaghi is clearly a better tactician. We must keep Pioli unless we can hire someone better and those are Inzaghi, Spaletti, Ancelotti, and maybe Conte.


We went full circle, Napoli gave us 5 -0 before Ibra’s arrival, and now that he and other key players and staff left we see this kind of defeat. Inter show Pioli’s cap. We need to do better because other teams are also doing it.

CL will be a pain with performances like tonight’s.


atalanta, not napoli. pioli gets all the bad records.


My bad, thx for the correction.

He got some positives too, Leao’s fastest goal, he had a good unbeaten run.

I’m not blaming Pioli, the man can do so much with his tactical limitations and the squad available. I will blame the decision maker that’s Cardinale.


lol and we play champions league !


I guess the season starts now.


My PTSD cannot


All the players who scored Milan were either former Milan player or Milan wanted to buy. Well this is a way of showing you that pioli or whatever he’s called has nothing to offer Milan. like I always say he’s a mid table coach not Milan standard and he has no game plan sticking to same players and not knowing when to change game plan if it’s going as planned. milan made great mistakes by adding new players but refused to upgrade the coach. Football of nowadays is in the way of reading the game knowing what to do immediately.… Read more »


Well..What you expect from a team coached by a manager who keep speaking high on mediocre player Krunic?he even refused to sell Krunic..
Won 3 first game and hope the tactic works as well against Inter..what a coach
This match only show how Pioli didn’t do his homework..


No confidence in Pioli wot so ever
he should have been sacked last season and when u saw this guy in charge of a rebuild I knew it was fucked , he’s not the guy to bring this club forward .
I agree chukweze should start on the right and pasalic am and krunic is a bench back up player in my book , missy would be better . Same coach different players
same shitty result v inter


Well, you can’t change the whole midfield, you need depth and someone who knows the tactics.

Now, you sell everyone but Tonalli, but guess who was pissed after Maldini’s departure and was becoming a problem?

So yeah, it’s not on Krunic, the man has played consistent football for the last couple of years. If you want someone to blame it’s called Cardinale.

He destroyed this team, Maldini wanted to get rid of Pioli, and look what happened, what do you expect?


According to stats, the last time Inter scored 5 against Milan was 49 years ago and it only took one NBA Mercato.

More than tactics and players, this is one morale and motivation.

No Tonalli, No Maldini No Show.

Inter VS Milan 2023.jpg

yeah we won with them!!!!


Yup, 5 games without a win against Inter is bad, but yeah Maldini, Tonalli, and Co. gave us glorie.

You can’t deny facts. Their names are printed on San Siro.

According to reports, Zlatan is at Milanelo as part of Pioli’s coaching team. Zlatan will be there until the Newcastle game.

I have to be grateful for Zlatan, we need him as a vice Pioli this season, might be good, just give him a contract, can’t do any wrong.

The other perspective is why on earth do we need Zlatan? Did Pioli run out of credits?
