Probable line for the derby (Gazzetta): Donnarumma; Conti, Musacchio, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Bennacer, Kessie, Calhanoglu; Paquetà; Suso, Piatek.

Sky has Rebic instead of Paquetà.

When will come the day when Rodriguez and Calhanoglu won't start games for us anymore...

So, Atalanta start by losing 4-0 to Dinamo. Shows you how weak Serie A actually is.


Well, Napoli did beat the champions of Europe, and Juve almost won vs Atletico last night in Madrid. So, I don't think that's a right assessment to make.

Rather, it's the given outcome of what happens when mid-table clubs like Atalanta pretend to be part of the big boys. They just can't handle it. We would have never lost 4-0, even at our current state.

Funny how the 'top two' (or so) coaches in Italy deeply struggled in England.


Ancelotti and Conte? Well, they both won the league with Chelsea...

In view of the derby, Inter tied 1-1 vs Slavia at home. They were appalling, almost as bad as us against Verona. In fact, they were also poor against Cagliari and Udinese as well.

If we play with the right mindset, we can win.

So, looks like Paqueta after the game agaionst Verona posted on Instagram a picture with comment "Proud to be brazilian" referring to Giampaolo's previous comments ("He needs to be less Brazilian") and, according to Tuttosport, the club might fine him.

WTF?! Now we're even creating problems out of nothing instead of valuing our most gifted player. Giampaolo has done only damage thus far.

Oh, and as for Rebic, he was OK. Some great moments but also some WTF moments as well.

Mourinho would be a pipe dream.

We started with Giampaolo and we'll continue with him at least till December. Wanting him sacked so early in the season is just wishful thinking.

But man, I hate this guy already. First of all, he had two months at disposal to deploy his ideas and tactics. But we're in mid-September and the team is playing some godawful football.

Secondly, he had a clear formation in mind, which he practised all summer only to change after the very first game in the league. Which, mind you, it was the right decision, but it really shows just how shaky his mindset is.

And then the player selection. This irks me the most. Hernandez returns from injury fully fit yet he plays the disastrous Rodriguez. Bennacer plays a great game vs Brescia yet he starts Biglia. Our most expensive signing of the summer has been warming the bench for three games straight. Krunic hasn't seen the pitch for a minute yet craptards like Hakan and Castillejo keep getting free passes. I seriously have no words.

Giampaolo has to go. He's a complete amateur. I'm sure Parma, Sampdoria, Crotone or Palermo will soon be in need of a new coach.

What an abysmal performance. No words to describe how clueless and sloppy this team is. Reminds me of how we used to play football when I was a kid, just kicking the ball without knowing what to do with it. Giampaolo has been a huge disappointment.

Guys am I in some kind of nightmarish trance? Am I overreacting?

I've been watching Milan for 25 years. Considering our opposition, I'm thinking this may be the worst start I've ever seen. Not result-wise. But we play like every goddamn simple thing is a chore of galactic proportions. Every attack, every cross or shot. I'm really appalled what I've seen so far.


There with you. Those horizontal passes back and forth are just unbearable.

Hakan and Rodriguez are the worst on the pitch by default. But Biglia sleep-walking there along with them certainly doesn't help.

Meanwhile we have guys like Hernandez, Bennacer, Rebic and Leao warming the bench. What a swell guy this Giampaolo is. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/king.gif)

Can't even take a shot at goal against a 10-man Verona.

Biglia starting.

0 new players starting.

Giampaolo really wants to be hated.

It doesn't matter whether Castillejo can play as SS or not. He's just a terrible player all around. I'd rather play Borini instead, and that's saying a lot.

But he'd have only one year left in his contract then. Doubt they'd ask more than 25M for a player who's contract is about to expire.

Probable line-up vs Verona (Mediaset):

Donnarumma; Calabria, Musacchio, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Bennacer, Kessie; Calhanoglu; Suso, Castillejo, Piatek.

Someone remind me why we signed Duarte, Hernandez, Krunic, Rebic and Leao please. Also, someone explain to me why the f*ck that useless dud of Castillejo keeps starting games.

Hmm, are you sure? It was everywhere that there will be an option in the deal. Both ways


https://www.milannews24.com/rebic-due-anni-...to-ecco-perche/

According to what was stated by Oliver Frankenbach, financial director of the German club, the reason behind the lack of a right to purchase in the negotiation for Rebic and André Silva is due to the short time available to the two clubs that, apparently, have started to strike the negotiation only in the last days of the transfer market.

Maybe the contract expires for both after 2 years


They both expire in June 2022, so no.

Looks like the Rebic-Silva deal is just a two-year loan with no option to buy. So, if Rebic does well, we'll have to negotiate with Eintracht for his purchase.

I still wonder what really went down between Silva and Monaco.


Monaco were going to pay 30M as agreed, but then some issues came during Silva's medical, so they offered 20M instead and we refused.

He cost Atleti a tad more than 30M :-)


Yeah, but the point was that you sometimes can be certain if a youngster is world class or not.

For some reason I missed the fact that it was Ruiu, I normally avoid his posts for those exact reasons. He is not the only one on CM who likes to put Milan in a bad light, not sure why I still bother with that site.


He's one of those guys I would punch if I saw him walking on the street.

I do not believe you can be certain of something like that :-). Especially with someone that young plus going to a new league (one that emphasizes defense), not to mention that he is going into a team relatively low on talent that is still adjusting to a new system. I think it was a gamble, hopefully it will pay off. Will see ...


*cough*Joao Felix*cough*

QUOTE (Forza Milan! @ Sep 5 2019, 04:01 PM) *
Possibly. My guess is that we prioritized building a faster and more "dynamic" front line over other needs. Interested in what you would have done with the 30M (I have read a lot of different opinions thru the summer, so I am genuinely curious).


I would have kept the 30M, added something extra and signed Correa or Depay, or someone of that calibre.

QUOTE (Forza Milan! @ Sep 5 2019, 04:01 PM) *
EDIT: read this after my post. Basically it says that buying Rebic will de-value Leao. Of course, this is CM and they seem to like to dump on Milan ...


The guy who wrote that article (Cristiano Ruiu) is an idiot, a complete ignoramus, a disgusting Galliani kissass that has an agenda for every article he writes. Do not believe a word you read.
