Depressing to watch :-(

I can see what we are trying to do midfield, but it does not seem to be working. Can't break thru a Serie C team defense (too slow), and we appear to be leaving ourselves open defensively (Cesena already scored once in offside, and almost scored before that).

Paqueta making a difference in the second half. That said, I read quite a bit about GP's system, but it does not look to me like this is working the way it should. Suso as TQ is a disaster, IMHO, not sure what GP sees in him.

I will have to miss the rest of the match, but given what I have seen so far ...

What I saw looked pretty mediocre. But then it's a mediocre squad with a mediocre manager so not really a shock.

Danny you nailed it my man (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I watched the game while in transit at the airport and found something a little different. I focused my critic on the movement of the team ‘off the ball’ ... in that light I feel the team did rather well.

Let us not forget this is a new formation for ‘this’ squad and some of them might be disoriented at present, i feel by the time the season starts it will be a different Milan. Or else I hope so, as I have just subscribed to the new season via my cable provider (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)

Really? I haven't seen any of the pre-season games, but from what I've read, Suso as TQ has been a delight thus far (sans this game).

Looking at player ratings from Spazio Milan and Sempre Milan, it seems like indeed I am being too harsh.

QUOTE
SUSO 6 – Ci prova subito dalla distanza, imposta e gestisce. Cerca Piatek con verticalizzazioni con qualche difficoltà in più rispetto alle altre gare amichevoli di quest’estate.

In other words, not as good as previous pre-season games but still a "6".

QUOTE
Suso (6): Decent performance but as a playmaker, he should do more to create chances for the strikers and tonight he failed miserably at that task.


As I see it, the midfield was not accomplishing much in the first half, it only came to life when Paqueta replaced Hakan in the second half (Hakan took over for Biglia), and went into high gear towards the end when Kessie came in (I ended up watching the full game after all). Perhaps it's my limited understanding of the game, but Suso felt lost and out of position more often than not. Not many chances were created by him (Paqueta accomplished a lot more). Of course, what chances were created were wasted by Piatek an Samu and (even worse) Silva, but that's a different story.

Suso just isn't a TQ. He's too selfish to play that role. It requires team playing and looking for the runs - he just doesn't do that.

I think you both are wrong - the truth is somewhere in the middle.

Suso was one of the better players last night, according to Tuttosport, along with Donna, Biglia, Paquetà and Calhanoglu.

Anyway, don’t get too upset about last night. It’s just a pre-season game that nobody takes too seriously. Juve also played against Triestina and from what I’m reading they were pretty rubbish (won 1-0).

Thoughts about who will start / should start with Udinese?

GP has gone on record saying he will stick to players that have already been "tested" in his system, which means it probably will be the same formation as the 1st half against Cesena. I am hoping to see something closer to what we had at the start of the second half, with Hakan back and Paqueta on the left. Also, would prefer to see Bona as TQ with Suso on the right (Bona did decently when he played that role, and Suso seems to gravitate to the right anyway). Up front it would be good to see Leao, but if GP feels he needs more time I would prefer Silva over Samu (both are bad, but Samu is horrible).

You meant Cesena.

Also, for the other part in bold, Suso on the right? You do realise we'll play 4-3-1-2. So, what right are you referring to?
