Bro, it's useless for you to deny the facts. Nobody will buy it. Kessie's goal was regular. FACT.

Secondly, I never said we put up a stellar performance against ManUtd. I said ManUtd had nothing on us. It was a very, very even match that was decided by episodes. Again, if you deny something so obvious and clear, then nobody will buy your arguments.

You always tend to look at the general picture (no experience, no great players etc.) but you always fail to look at the details. And as I said before, football is a game where episodes and luck player a very, very major role in the final outcome. Everyone knows this.

Buy what? What Kessie goal are you talking about?

ManUtd won on experience. Experienced and well rounded teams tend to do so. Half of the knockout games Milan won during Carletto's reign or even with Capello were such performances, decided by episodes, games were we had nothing on our opposition yet managed to hold onto the brilliance of Kaka, Pippo, Sheva, Serginho or whoever was in the right mood.

So you say the details, the real treasure of football is luck and episodes? This you call details? Man, I really don't follow you. I acknowledge all your interpretations. But in the end, you tend to choose one episode and use it as a pars pro toto argument, which is false. Milan got robbed by Cakir, there's not denial there. But this is something you cannot influence, this goes down to what you say - luck. But could have Kessie used his brain and avoid fouling with already a yellow card on his shoulders? Could Milan have defended like Bologna against us for the better part of the game and not like some shaky scared bunch of players who stopped doing anything but defending their box? Yes. More could have been done. Experience is what we needed. The botttom line to this CL campaign will be "experience needed, experience gained" and not "we should have won bot got robbed every time".

Re Han: I think one of our biggest problems in recent games was the midfield situation. Not only do we lack Diaz or a quality AM who can do his job, but also Kessie started the season rather badly, Bennacer is awfully inconsistent even during games (the last few matches he made some horrendous unforced mistakes and stupidities), Tonali seems to be dropping in for as well (Pioli subbed him off rightly because he was going to get a second yellow for sure) while Bakayoko seems to need more time to recuperate and get back where he was with us two seasons ago (even though last night he provided the pass for Bennacer's goal).

@Han - Leao our most dangerous outlet? Man have you seen him yesterday second half? Bar that fluke goal he scored he went MIA and never returned. We were up by 2 man, Ibra tried everything, almost all of our players at least tried and failed (mostly), but Leao simply just wasn't there. No man, he's not our most dangerous outlet, he's the most unpredictable. But yesterday already shows how you can table that "clutch player" overreaction for quite some time.

@X-O - Ibra is garbage? Oh come on, let's be honest. He's 40, he's very rusty and injury prone. This is probably his last season and all problems are very visible. But to say he's garbage... that's really uncalled for. In his worst performance the man scored (even twice haha) and made an assist. No man, Ibra is good to have and valuable, if fit.

You have 2 of the best headers of the ball in the game. That's the logical thing to do when you have zero creativity through the centre

And Ballo Toure and Alexis to cross?

Anyway, now we won. Lets forget this shame ever happened

Why are we not just throwing crosses at Ibra and Giroud FFS??

With two man up this is the least effective thing

Giroud and Ibra should never play together.

Bring in Maldini?

Playing like this 11v9, unacceptable.

Ballo Toure our main builder now. Where are Baka and Bena?

I'm the only one who's praised him. -off is rather hard on Leao as well

I see now. Seems that I mistakenly read your ?clutch player post? as X-O?s..

It was an OK performance in the first. Can't believe we let it go down to this.

Well, big players missing, a amateurish keeper, some poor performances and a nonchalant attitude - and there you go..

Leao is becoming immense

Shame on me for ever calling him Niang

Immense? Clutch player? I think you?re both vastly overrating him. Yes he?s been good, sometimes even very good. Yet he?s still rather unreliable and still tends to lose interest in the middle of the game.

Calabria piss poor today, nevermind the goal.

Bennacer also irking me a lot with his ups and downs and lack of consistent play.

Taking off Tonali was a mistake as well.

And well, looking in hindsight, I really don't see how this first CL campaign could have gone differently for us.

We managed to get a very tough group. We have a team with only a handful of players who played the CL. Everyone made mistakes out of inexperience. First not to include Conti and Samu to the CL players list was a grave mistake. Second, Pioli never really took charge both tactically and in terms of intelligent subs. Thirdly the players and team as a whole collapsed several times. We managed to throw away our comeback against Liverpool, we managed to get the stupid red card during a very good second showing and we managed to lose faith and stop playing during the third game. I really don't see how we could have done anything more.

Remember, Pioli's team tends to bend if the pressure is too high. We collapsed last season several times due to the heat being near us and shined mostly when off the radar or with less pressure. We managed to lose or both several decisive games in the past in Europa League as well.

We need more experience, more time to grow. Being eliminated in 21/22 in group stage is pretty much expected.

Okay, we'll see what happens.

And what about Kessie? If he leaves this winter, we'll have to find yet another midfielder to replace him or are we gonna sacrifice our depth again?

Well, if you watched the games, they sorta did. ManUtd had nothing on us, and their shitty goal at San Siro came from a Dollarumma blunder.

Spoken like a true PSV Eindhoven league supporter. I know some people from Holland who even now question Milan beating them in the CL semis because Ambro's goal was irregular.

Yes, referees damaged us a lot this season. Agreed. Yes, we could have won again ManUtd. But we didn't. We did not put up a stellar performance, especially not at Old Trafford. In the end, their experience won them the game. Not some referee.
