As for Milan - or should I say AC Empoli, a terrible performance. But what's there to expect? Terrible management, followed by a poor coach and a limited roster filled with the wrong decisions and wrong components.

For the last time... last season Gattuso's simplistic style of play made it abundantly clear what Milan's strong and weak sides are. Now tell me this: we decided to "upgrade" our team with a new coach and new philosophy, while adding little to none (yes, Leao, Duarte, Krunić and Bennacer are not much for me).

Then our coach decides to turn pretty much all positive aspects of last season upside-down and makes players like Suso, Hakan, etc. look terrible. Meanwhile Ricky Massara says the Correa story has been blown out of proportions by the media which means we gave up. Boban and Maldini, players I admire, but managerial amateurs, lead Milan out of Europe in order to have "more freedom" with FPP and decide to splash money on a 4th left back and a kid striker who scored less then 10 goals at Lille.

Just like last season, we start with a pile of "junk players" that are basically useless. But last season those players were Mauri, Bertolacci, etc - players virtually impossible to sell. This season we have Strinić, Biglia, Kessie, Castillejo, etc. Plusvalenza or not, by keeping them and not adding up experience is just solidifying our downfall.

And by experienced players by no means do I mean Ronaldo. I mean good or very good players who would probably sign for us. Look at Fiorentina - just one summer and everyone is talking about a "project". Is anyone talking about a Milan project? I don't think so. AC Empoli

The final ten minutes of this game tell you everything. The good old Suso jumped at the first sign of trouble back to right wing, Piatek vanished, Pirloğlu got lost in his dreams. Good moves Giampa. Everything Gattuso learned us you managed to reset and made us even worse. Great decision making. AC Empoli


Though you do make good points, I think it's a little too early to be jumping to conclusions. Today's line-up was a dead give-away that things might go south for us, and they did.

I think all the players we've signed were necessary. We got a couple of back-ups in Duarte and Krunic to replace the players that left, two very good signings in Hernandez and Bennacer that will help us improve the weaknesses in those areas, and a promising youngster that can play anywhere in attack.

Granted, it's not enough, we need at least someone proven and of quality upfront. Also, wanted to point out that Strinic rescinded his contract with us a couple of day ago, so he's no longer a Milan player.

Isn't he the one Han pegged as the new Maldini for us? Someone decided he was the ghost of Baresi and I can't remember who.

No one wants to comment on Piatek and his disgraceful dive following by even more disgraceful acting? And all this in the VAR age?


Yes, terrible.

We didn't do good. Giamp needs to be practical, and he needs to do it quickly. Why didn't we keep Gattuso again?

Too busy moaning about everything else in the match. In his marginal defence, he was indeed struck in the face, if not particularly violently and not meriting of that reaction, but, yes, I rate his ability highly and I nevertheless lost a great deal of respect for him at that incident.

I disagree on the necessity part. I think only Bennacer was necessary. All other signings are pretty much unimportant. Duarte was also necessary, or at least a CB. But had we renegotiated a new deal with Zapata, and also keep in mind that Rodriguez is well suited to play CB (I actually think he would be better then LB). So splashing up money for Duarte was not a priority. Hernandez is good because Rodriguez causes problems, but he also wasn't/isn't a priority. IMO we gave much money for a injury prone youngster with no Serie A experience. Krunić I believe is completely unimportant.

And even if we say the signings have been necessary, I still think we could have handled them with more care and make shrewder decision on who to keep and who to sell and for what prize. We used to moan around how Galliani wasn't able to sell his cuts. Well.. But you honestly think that (even beside the point that Rodriguez is getting worse and worse) we needed a leftback, a young midfielder and a very young striker to take a shot at 4th spot? Because this is the goal, right? Or are we trying to secure survival and avoid relegation?

Last season we were 1 point shy of getting to the CL. So things were easy. We knew we needed a more tactically astute coach like Giampaolo and made the move. But then Maldini and Boban got completely lost. Tell me, do you consider us any stronger with does depth players and talents? I think minus Zapata, Bakayoko and Cutrone we're in fact much weaker.

We created a big mess with letting the coach implement his own system of play while all the same not providing the necessary (quality) players. I hear Giampaolo is now suggesting (post-game conference) to drop his system in favor of a plan that plays on the strengths of the players. That went south quickly.

I think it was mutual. Milan wanted someone new and Ringo just wanted not to create any trouble so he left.

Haha..gone quickly. I just thought it was a tactical mess. All of the players looked lost out there with this new system.

At least he realized quickly that it was never going to work. Good indicator. The problem is we bought players for a different system, and we didn't get the left-winger we should have bought. And, Correa is far from being that.

Hell yes on the left back! That was a HUGE priority. We cannot continue with Rodriguez. The guy is utter rubbish, which he diligently proved again yesterday.

Oh, so he injured his ankle and suddenly he's injury prone? That can happen to anyone.

Hernandez was a necessary signing. The kid is plenty talented and he showed that in his the first half against Bayern before leaving injured. He might not have Serie A experience but he has La Liga experience, which is a far more superior league.

I think with Hernandez, Bennacer and Leao we're stronger. Not sure how Leao will turn out in the end, but I never rated Cutrone. Perhaps spending 30M on him was a stretch, so I agree that we could have spent a little more on someone else.

Mediaset already suggesting that we're switching back to 4-3-3 and that Boban is flying to Madrid to close for Correa.

Speaking of which, the guy's primary position is on the wing (no SS and no AM), so if we sign him we could easily play him and Suso on the wings and Piatek as CF.

Oh okay perfect then! Having Correa will def. help if he plays as a winger.

Oh look, Lukaku is starting for Inter despite being with the team for only two weeks. Take note, Maestro Giampaolo. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)

It really was a big error on his part. I mean, Borini in midfield, come on. Kessie has always been in the team..

I feel like we're repeating the same thing over and over. My biggest fear is that we have signed an incompetent coach.
