It’s very clear at this point. this lineup is going to result in a loss.

You remove Reijnders, keep Ruben, and bench your two goal creation options.
I am not watching this match. Let me sleep this one

Go to bed. Let us enjoy the win. 🙂

Lol, didn’t age well I guess

I slept the whole season. Zlatan, Cardinale and Pioli. That’s not Milan.

Poili costed us this games if we eventually lose, he sacrificed the right flank by playing Calabria and Musa on same flank, Chukwueze would easily go past Roma players on that flank and increase balls getting to giroud.

Am so sorry we can’t win this game as we were unable to register one goal so we can look for 2 goals in second half and with Roma down to 10 men. We have lost the pedigree and the onions that made us Milan. when Milan was Milan coaches like this Milan coach won’t even make a practicing coach talkies of taking charge in Milan. Look at Madrid coach Ancelloti who is well equipped in knowledge and experience. Honestly we should just forget this cup can you score 3 past against Roma as we played 135 minutes without scoring… Read more »

If rumors are true, this is Zlatan’s pick for taking Milan to the new era of football.

No Maldini no Show!

Pioli needs to be sacked before inter game, cos he will literally give them the cup, he lacks the tactical know-how to beat inter and stop their title winning

Rossi

Another Pioli masterclass lol.

Maldini saw this coming. His advice was, spend to stay competitive, upgrade the coach. The objective was to win the whole thing. Cardinale fires him, repaces with Zlatan and buys whatever Moncada told him. How did they spent 120 millions to “upgrade” the squad and end up in EL losing against a 10 men Roma. Remember Pjanic/Arthur swap? FCB and JUV reported 30m as the pricetag. Zlatan was a showman, he Is the Chuck Norris of football because it’s a funny joke. Now, taking people’s hard earn money, while using your image as a club’s legend to enable this scam… Read more »

Apart from Mike, more than half the squad (including most of the “new” signings) do not have the quality, and the rest are decent but incredibly inconsistent. Dismantling a team that reached CL semis last year, and not replacing with at least equal – if not better – quality players… this was bound to happen.
I still cannot get over the fact that they got 3 – three – bloody three, average b2b mids.
