2 lost points

If we are hemming a hawing with Ibra about his contract, this game should be enough of a reality check for the management. We absolutely need someone with his confidence in the final third

So many lost chances

Napoli died like us. Inter and Juve are now the 100% established order in Italy. Napoli were a fad.

It's not like inter have been an established force for years now. They rode their luck into the CL which is what allowed them to get a coach like Conte

We were a single point away last season from them.

But those are the fine lines.

Any news regarding Ibrahimović?

He has confirmed that he will be returning to Italy, And only a few clubs can take on his wages, most of which don't really need him, so right now, I am assuming that he will sign for us. But I have been let down before when it comes to Ibra, so who knows

Contradictory, I know, but I don't think that the same yard stick applies for all players.

Sadly. Anyone watched the game? I tried, but failed. We're so bad it's really a pain to watch. Even good or solid teams look bad when playing with us.

I watched, didn't think we were bad at all.

Performance-wise we have improved a lot under Pioli imo, it's just the results that haven't come yet. Our sterility in front of goal being the main culprit

Nobody has discussed this here, but there were rumours a few days ago about our interest in Ibrahimovic. LA Galaxy's president even said that he has an agreement with us, only to claim afterwards that his words were misinterpreted.

What do you guys think? Would you sign a 38 year old Zlatan?

I'd carry him on my back from LA to Milano. Zlatan is Zlatan, no matter how old he is, he's a true leader and winner, the exact kind of player we need in this team full of inexperienced players who have never won anything

QUOTE (nuh @ Nov 12 2019, 11:11 AM) *
One of the biggest mistakes this club has ever made was selling Ibra and Thiago during the summer 2012. Though, having said that, I’d rather we move on and find better solutions. I love Ibra, his two seasons with the club have been fantastic and yes, I think he’d still be able to offer something this season. Though, making short-sited signings are what killed this club. I’d rather we fix this solution with a player that could help us for a longer period than potentially 6 months. I do agree with the opinion that we need experience, but not a 38-year-old Ibra. It may be a good idea to go all out for Cavani, he’s everything we want Piatek to be, good on the ball, helps out in the defense, can create his own chances and creates for others. His contract expires next season and Icardi seems to be doing well for PSG. Maybe he would be worth pursuing.

If we're going to sign a past player it should be Thiago. What we miss more than anything is a leader in the back 4. I really think if we can bring in a vocal player that can shape the defense better and demand players to focus, we'll concede less. I really think one of the reasons Abate and Thiago performed well with us was because of Nesta constant feedback on the pitch.

PS. Hi guys (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) , I haven’t posted in a long time but I’ve been coming on often to read your opinions.

How old is Thiago now? I think we can find cheaper solutions for the same quality. The PSG players who have gotten used to kicking back in France and earning astronomical wages are out of our price point imo. Look at Verratti as the best example of this, he's wasting all that talent playing in France imo, but look at the contract extension he signed, no Italian team would pay that, even the big clubs in Spain and England would think twice

Kessie is terrible as well. I guess Pioli tried to rely on Bonaventura's experience. But not that this sub mattered. Krunić was bad, Bona as well.

I really did not think Krunic was bad, he's an interesting player for sure, just very slow.

Bona's legs are gone. I think Biglia would have been a more prudent choice, or at least do what x-off said, pull Hakan back into midfield and bring in Rebic earlier. We needed a quick spark, and he brings that. Leao is too green to come on and make a difference in this kind of game

True..you called it. :/

Hakan and Suso is not going to work as wings..We need to find something else.

4-2-3-1.

Suso and Rebic would be on the wings, Hakan in the centre

Then why keep Kessie out? He was not injured and the decision was purely technical. Makes no sense. We're not in a position to be having such luxuries right now.

It's true we did not deserve to lose, but I called it. We don't have the mental strength to hold onto these games. Eventually we concede.

And also it's true we've seen improvements under Pioli, but goodness gracious how fucking awful are in attack? So many mistakes. That remains to be our biggest issue right now.

It wasn't purely technical, it was disciplinary as well. He was late to training.

Yes, I said as well that we'd concede in the last few minutes, because this kind of game has become textbook Milan. But, you have to appreciate that Juve took off Ronaldo and Bernardeschi and brought on Dybala and Costa. There's only so much our players can do against those guys coming on fresh while all our players have heavy legs.

I think Pioli should really consider moving to a 4-2-3-1. With Paqueta and Bennacer in the double pivot. Paqueta is not just tricks and flicks, he has industry as well and is one of our best passers, and Bennacer has come back roaring under Pioli. I'd like to see them in that setup. Rebic, Hakan and Suso would be in support of Piatek, that would leave him less isolated than he currently is.

There's something off with Rebic though. Both coaches we've had have seemingly sidelines him for some reason...

This is not to say I don't agree with you x-off. Bona is clearly past it at this point, and should not be on the pitch against Juve

Retract Hakan and play Rebic on the left.

Bonaventura is worse than Montolivo right now.

Bad move to sub in Bonaventura. The guy has clearly lost his touch.

What other viable options are on the bench though?

Probably Biglia but he's also lost a step or two

Juve's strength off the bench is just unmatched. They can bring on Dybala and Costa... We brought on Bona and a kid

Yes, decent first half. Let's see what happens in the 2nd half. Juve are not on their game today.

Special mention to Bennacer..this kid is good.

Yep, this game and the one against Lazio have been a major comeback for him after the disaster few games he had under Giampaolo

Overall, I do see major improvements since Pioli took over, it's just a matter of getting the results now.

Decent first half. Team is holding well, but let's not kid ourselves. This is exactly the kind of game we end top losing in the end.

Weakest links: Krunic and Piatek. The guys are so limited when it comes to dribbling and passing, they hurt whatever flow of play we might create every now and then.

Strongest links: Hernandez and Paqueta. Great first half from them.

Disagree on Krunic, his real drawback is that he's slow. Other than that, I really like him and actually think his passing is pretty good, certainly a lot more smart and aware than Kessie. Piatek is constantly up against 2 strong CBs, he's going to struggle no matter what

I think Hakan and Suso are bigger let downs. I expect more from them

Agreed on Paqueta and Hernandez, but I'd also add Romagnoli and Bennacer to the list. Both of which have been flawless imo

And yeah, with our luck, we'll lose this in the last few minutes, which is typical for us

QUOTE (X-Offender @ Nov 10 2019, 09:36 PM) *
Think again. Calabria is a disaster.

Nuh uh. Conti is much worse. Calabria is no doubt going through a rough patch of form, but I'd pick him over Conti any day of the week.
