Pioli discovering ugly brawl football. Where is the football? All I see is forward runs, high press, and always a mistake in the final third. Giroud never sees the ball, and Leao don’t have the time and space to give us his best football.

It’s like Miha’s Milan all over again.

With Davide Massa is an evident Milan hater… This will be tough

Raven

Pioli, Ruben’s injury was a blessing in disguise but you send Musah as a 8… Mamma mia

Raven

Reijnders, didn’t you hear that Giroud needs his birthday goal?

Jay

Calabria is a liability in the back. Giroud has been awful. Florenzi in, okafor in and Chuckweze in. Out with Giroud, Calabria and Pulisic and their we go

If I coach any team in Serie A, Milan will sweat a lot to score a goal against me knowingfully well everyone especially both leao and right winger will just be targeting Giroud head to do the magic. I am concerned that we don’t have another game plan to win matches if our main plan is not working despite summer reinforcement of the squad

Goooaaallllll pulisic

The boys did very well, no goals allowed 3 points without breaking a sweat. The scudetto will be rossoneri
