^ Prandelli? It'll be Seedorf. When asked yesterday if Seedorf is in pole position for becoming new coach, Galliani said smiling: "Let's just say he's in position".

Well for me he gets points for...

*Winning the title.
*Being very competitive 2nd season in challenging for the title.
*Managing to get into the CL last season when it looked very unlikely.

Negatvies
*Playing players out of position too often.
*Sticking with players who were underperforming too often.
*Poor starts, every season.
*Likely to miss out on Europe completely this season.

The 2nd and 3rd points in the positives section for me should fall under negative.

First off, in his second season he had undisputably the best squad in the league, we gave Juve that title, it was ours to lose all season long and we sure did our best to do just that

Second, managing to get into the CL last season shouldn't have been the epic feat that we made it into thanks to a start that could only be comparable to that of a newly promoted side.

Just like a terrible run is a negative, a great run is a positive. Yeah we shouldn't have been in that position, but he did a ridiculous job to get us into the top 3.

Looking back at the season objectively, how much of that was down to tactics and how much of that was mostly to dumb luck/favourable ref decisions?

We even needed help on the last day against Siena. It was just an embarrassment all round

At the same time you could argue he'd have won 2 titles if it weren't for dumb luck/bad refereeing though. That goal not given against Juve was beyond ridiculous.

It's true, that moment changed the season, but we also lost a lot of stupid points that season when in reality we should have cruised it.

I'd put it like this:

Positives
+ Winning the scudetto in his first year, after several years of waiting
+ Evading final execution by turning around his prior mess
+ Trying to think outside the Milan routine and applying a new system

Negatives
- Sticking rigidly to a system that isn't suited to us, nor do we have the necessary players
- Manhandling: some get a cold treatment, others stay top even after multiple fails
- No finesse; which is actually one of the biggest problems with him
- No ability to adapt quickly or to excel
- Eventually his approach and personalty are bound to create a big mess he isn't up to

A disaster this season which could have easily happened last season as well, which shows you how this guy isn't able to adapt or become better.

Which is something you always fail to acknowledged when talking about Ancelotti. But it all comes down to preferences. I'm weak when it comes to Carlo, you're fond of Allegri as you usually like these kind of generally criticized types. What can I say? It's human.

I totally understand your frustration when Allegri receives such applause from our executives, considering he has so far taken Milan to the pits of Serie A. Galliani is stuck with this coach, that for me is absolute. The replacement will be Prandelli, I'll put money on this right no with you - Galliani is just trying to keep it neat and tidy without any noise. Once Allegri is gone, I doubt you will hear much of the same, on the contrary, it will be praise for Prandelli. And Prandelli fails, we all call him a small club coach who overachieved at NT level, or failed as well (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) And we call Galliani an idiot for signing him ... Ah, tis the cycle of life (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)


In all honesty, Galliani is just praising him to keep the ship steady and on course to climb the table. I doubt a man of his experience can be influenced by Allegri, I mean if you have this quality in a squad, the coach is most likely of similar calibre. Or IMO at least

Yep, this I understand. But I really think we should have sacked him and appoint a caretaker. The way he's handling Milan, nothing is impossible in the worst way.
