A part of me so wishes that Gazzetta is wrong this time around. (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/sad.gif) I would have played with a different formation, something more attacking. It's our home game, for crying out loud.

tell that to the tactical genius (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/dry.gif) it's it's up to the players on the field to perform but as a coach, carlo has been a complete failure this season. he rarely gets the formations right, never makes good subs, cant motivate the players, cant even Fing admit were not playing well.

There is no reason for us to play the Xmas tree. A draw isn't good enough, even if Fio lose. Maybe he wants to keep it close until HT then switch, but... if we're going down we might as well go down all guns blazing (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/cool.gif)

I hope for once we start with Pippo AND Pato up front... I badly want him to score another goal so his 0.5 goal a game ratio remains unchanged!

I'd love to see a 4-3-1-2.

The fish doll misses being able to say 'QUACK QUACK' when Pato scores goals too! (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/96.gif)

In today's training, more of the same general stuff but with more concentrated practice games.

Kalac, Jankulovski, Maldini & Favalli trained in the gym.

Tomorrow will be double training.

It really can't be anything less than 2 up front. I think we played 4-3-1-2 against Udinese earlier in the season when we were away (!), and still won.

Yeah, Gila was the hero that day, i remember it fondly. We only played that formation because Seedorf was injured/suspended, but we now have nothing to loose so must go in guns blazing from the start

+4321. Carlo is one of the most rigid and stubborn coach I've seen. Which means that if something is working for him, he won't change it. Often times it means good for the club, as in last year's Champions League. The problem arises when it doesn't, and this is when the club and fans have to pay. He won't change his tactics, when everyone including fans, media, maybe even the club management wants him to. Elite? Maybe.

He's a top coach, no doubt about that. But maybe he took the phrase "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" too personally? (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Exactly. Predictability and stupidity.

Ditto. He's been outclassed so many times this season. I can't recall any match in which we've seen any tactical genius or masterstroke by Carlo this season - at least not in the league or the knockout stages of the CL. Sure, one has a slump after winning so much personal accolades last year (him and Kaka too), and you're entitled to having an average season now and then.

But when you include predictability and stupidity into the mix, it's disaster. For a coach at least. Remember what happened in the Arsenal game. Wegner completely outclassed Carlo, and he didn't even know what hit him. Compare that to Manchester last season in San Siro - that was when Carlo was at hist best and most tactically astute. Sure the players haven't stepped it up as much this season, plus the management. Can't blame it all on the coach.

But irrespective of that and what happened through the season, I never thought that we'd be fighting for the fourth place in the last match of the season, with our destiny in Torino's hand. Even the best script writer couldn't have written such a script. One can still hope, though, for a Fiorentina draw and a Milan win.

Carletto has always been predictable. The thing is, even if you know that something is coming you will not be able to stop it if it's too strong... and Milan was very powerful a couple of years ago. Probably Carletto has not realized his team is not as strong as it used to be thus he's not doing anything to change it... that or he is just incapable of doing it.
