Reijnders needs a goal, Thiaw a clean sheet. Forza Milan




Worst case scenario already, Leao has a muscular problem and had to be replaced with Okafor before the 10th minute.

What? Wake the F up before is 3-2… Forza Milan!


Mamma mia


I wish they had an award for player with most back passes in a season. Krunic will happily take that award and Pioli will be happy for him. A 6 yr old can manage this team much better than this clueless man you call a coach. 

Adli played 3 straight games, we won. Krunic comes back, Pioli keeps Adli on the bench. Wow wow wow. The guy loves Mediocre players more than anything. 


Chukwueze had the ball and wanted to push forward when we were up 2-0 and Pioli told him to slow the game down from the sideline. Even the commentator felt that was a bad call to slow down just cos you’re up by 2. A real coach knows you never kill a game just cos you’re up by 1 or 2 or 3 goals. Keep scoring cos you never know. Maybe we can learn a thing or 2 from Inter. Finally, I’ve been saying this for over 3 years now and I’ll say it one last time, Fire Pioli now.… Read more »


I still trust the mister but I don’t see him eating panetonne at Milanello


That’s what you get when you unecessarilly revamp the team and sack winning management. It’s like watching Montella and the Chinese all over again.
