It's only been us and CMF in here for months now. The forum is dead. Might as well create a WhatsApp group and continue the conversations there. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

I agree about all your points, except one: Adli. I thought he was great today, and he's been relatively good in most of his games. Yes, sometimes he takes that extra 2-3 seconds to pass, but I disagree regarding everything else you said about him. His overall passing is good, he misplaces very few passes, tries to attempt difficult through-balls, and his defensive game tonight was brilliant. So many recovered balls. I honestly thought he was our best mid tonight.

This place just feels different though, I'd rather stay here as it's nostalgic for me. I'd love it if all the old guys came back. But alas.

Nah man, maybe it's just me, but I really do not rate him. Maybe it's the overall make up of our midfield which is unbalanced that's making me feel that way more than him specifically. But I really don't see it.

This is what I mean about Adli x-off

Slow, contemplative, terrible decision making! Really don't rate him.


Also, Pioli's rotation striking again. Absolutely awful decisions. W have the Rennes game practically wrapped up, why not rotate in that one? Absolutely boggles the mind

Thiaw with the biggest disaster class I've seen in a while man. All the goals we conceded, he somehow had a hand in all of them.

My god! I know he's been out for a while, but if I were the coach, I'd have hooked him after one of the most idiotic penalty giveaways I've see in a while



Overall, terrible showing from Pioli. We were on a roll. And once again, he has no clue on how to rotate effectively. Switch out one or 2 players from different departments, not 3 players from the same one. Completely toothless is attack. Made terrible mistakes in defence. And it looked like Pulisic was going to bail him out, but our awful defending came through (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)

4-2 against Monza... Just humiliating.

You have a 2nd leg on Thursday where you're leading 3-0. I don't have to be a genius to know that is the game you switch out a few players. Just idiotic on so many level from him. I really do not get this guy. We could have gone ahead of Juve, now they've actually made up ground on us again. Unacceptable against a team like Monza no less.

To make matters worse, we rested these players only to still have to bring them on and have them run themselves into the ground for nothing and get fatigued even more then if they had started , played a smart game where we could have done the business and then took them off. Just genius.

This management better give Pioli the f@cking boot at the end of this season!!! Enough of him!

He was very bad tonight, doesn't mean he's been bad in past games.

This defeat was a Pioli masterclass through and through. So many useless rotations for what? We still need to claim that CL spot. Atalanta and Roma are on fire lately, Bologna breathing down our necks as well. He could have rested 2-3 players tonight and 2-3 others against Rennes, but he goes and overhauls everything. What a dumbass!

Okafor-Jovic-Chukwueze is Serie B material. Adli was horrible tonight, Loftus very mediocre as well.

Thiaw shambolic defending. Bro looked like he was picked from the streets. That penalty fault was beyond amateurish.

And Jovic can GTFO! You're trailing 2-0 and you do that???

I switched off after the red card, but it's sad to see we equalized in the end only to lose it again. FFS.

The lack of discipline in this side mad.

Another penalty given away needlessly.

In every game I find myself feeling this way about Adli though. He's just not good enough imo.



Once again, why am I seeing Bennacer nearly level with the striker FFS? Perfect way to waste him and as an added bonus, open the middle of our pitch wide open (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif) Pioli things


Let's see if we somehow manage to f@ck up a 3-0 lead against a sh!t French side

Another penalty... My god!

What is Jovic supposed to do with that? It cam at him from closer than 10cm FFS

Once again, we have no close on how to control a game. Cannot keep possession for more than a second, keep inviting on pressure.

2 of the softest penalties you'll see. We've been a lighting rod for these all season, and it is all because we don't dictate games, we invite pressure which creates these situations

Another shameful performance to put under our belts this season.

Cannot defend to save our lives, no shape, no structure and ill-disciplined.

Make this season be over already!

They were both clear penalties. Kjaer takes their player down, and Jovic keeps his arms too wide open. In those circumstances you have to be more careful because the rules are clear as day.

I only saw the second half, and it was disastrous. We can't defend, we make foolish mistakes, we can't counterattack, we don't have a semblance of what I'd call a "game". No combinations, no overlaps, no smart passes, no movement. Just casual balls thrown around hoping that someone will pull something out of his hat.

The only reason we're 3rd in the league and we win games it's only due to the fact that we have some good players in the mix that can help in scoring goals with their individual plays. But as a collective? We're absolutely abhorrent. Pioli must GTFO as soon as the season is over because he has failed to give an identity and a winning mentality to this team.

Orsato cost us the game today

We've been so unlucky with these BS penalty calls all season. So many being given against us.

We played well today, finally a good performance that deserved much more. Leao looks like he's back in his groove as well so I'm happy about that at least.

We can still get that 2nd spot ahead of Juve, it's not much but it's better than 3rd. Making sure that the other teams don't gain ground on us will be key to try to go far in Europe. Lazio next away from home and it's a must win.

There are no must-win games anymore in the league for us. Just huff and puff and hope we somehow don't screw up in the end, but with Italy closely getting that 5th spot for the CL, we look very comfortable. Whether we finish 2nd or 4th matters like if none at all.

And yes, Orasto did cost us the game. One of the ugliest penalties I've ever seen given. Shameful for a referee considered to be Italy's best.

It's a pity that in the two games we've played our best football lately, i.e. Bologna and Atalanta we only managed to scrap a point in each.
