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

If you look at Inter's results, none of them are credible. They beat a bottom 3 team with help from a red card, a midtable team by way of a penalty and another bottom team by way of being a man up.

Then get held at home by a very ordinary Slavia side?

I'm not a fan of Conte - I think his star peaked at Juve and despite the title he won in England, the way it fell apart quickly afterwards shows he doesn't have the ability to keep the success going.

I really think we did a bad choice with the coach here.


Why do you think I rarely come on here now.

Is this team really that bad?


That it struggled to beat a promoted side and lost to one expected to be in the mix to go down probably says its own story.

We looked disjointed, and haphazard. It wasn't horrible but when you see Borini coming on to save the day it's worrying.

PS Piatek's miss was a combination of horrible finishing and staggering goalkeeping.

But, at least we're off the mark. I suspect most our points this season will arrive at home.

Torino singed Laxalt for loan with OPTION to buy for 12 million. We really cant get rid of any player man.

Linked with Everton from Gremio again. No idea who he is. 30 million apparently rejected.


Wish someone would just singe our first team squad.

Another one of Mirabelli's genius moves.

Out of all the players he brought in that summer, not a single one turned out to be good.

Musacchio - average
Conti - mediocre
Rodriguez - rubbish
Biglia - mediocre
Kessie - average
Calhanoglu - rubbish
Silva - rubbish
Borini - rubbish
Kalinic - rubbish

Way to waste 200M.


Musacchio - who?
Conti - unfair, was doing ok then basically got a career-ending injury
Rod - good left foot and cross, cr*p everything else.
Biglia - less than mediocre
Kessie - had potential but just not up to it
Hakan - yup
Silva - worse than rubbish
Borini - worse than Silva
Kalinic - worse than aids.

Bonucci - MINCEMINCEMINCE

So, you're against young prospects like Leao but also against experienced, proven players like Sanchez...


You say proven but he scored 5 goals in like 35 for Utd. He was very good at Udi, failed at Barca, great at Arsenal, but that's all a long time ago. And his salary is actually close to the highest-paid in the world (400K a week, win bonus, sponsorships, and a £1.2M bonus per year just for being Alexis Sanchez). Not sure he can live on his past forever...

Sanchez is also not a good player any more! I wouldn't want him at any club I support.

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)


And scored.

Let's face it, we've brought in someone who was out of his depth from before he even walked in Milanello.

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.


It's almost endearing that it's taken till now for this to become apparent to you. I wish I'd had even your level of hope up till now.

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


He actually quit did he not?

PS how was that optimistic smile of yours after 10 minutes (!)

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


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.

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.

tbh we actually did better than I expected. We didn't lose by more than one goal.

This team is already fighting not to be a bottom 10 team. In fact, it may even be seeking avoiding being bottom 5. It's that bad.

It has a manager versed in mediocrity, a squad with no planning and no structure, thoroughly average players, and a desire to play those already average players in completely ill-fitting positions.

This is what dims my heart re: Milan. I can tolerate a bad team as long as it tries. I just can't tolerate one that plays bad, lacks morale, has no obvious system and is guided by someone utterly out of his depth.

Oh, and another thing - I knew it would be a duff season when I saw our new shirt - every recent season we have had the thin stripes, the horrible shirt, it reflects a horrible team or bad season. 11/12 (the summer which saw the exodus), 13/14 (8th), 16 (7th) and now this one. Especially the 2011 one. The start of the end.

Sempre Milan reckons the XI will be filled with last season's players. No new signings at all:

Donnarumma; Calabria, Musacchio, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Borini, Calhanoglu, Paquetà; Suso; Piatek, Castillejo.

We're a side with high ambitions but have so far made mid-table moves. I honeslty don't understand why they keep talking about getting back to where we were when the know the finances won't allow it. It just gives the fans false hope. I'd rather the management just be straight with everyone saying: "Look, major mistakes have been done in the past at this club, and it will take time to correct those mistakes, there's FFP breathing down our necks and we can't invest the sums that need to be invested to get back to where this club once was"

I'd rather that then this nonsense we get fed every summer only to be left disappointed once again. The fact that we couldn't get a top coach should have said it all to begin with really


Yeah we don't have the cash and we don't have the lure any more. But you're right - the club still acts to perpetuate the myth of us being a big club.

We're not a midtable side, we ended up 5th but the current decisionmaking will bring us back midtable.


We spent most of the season hovering between 10-5 - that's midtable.

If I'm generous we're upper midtable.

So I read Biglia got injured. What a shocker.

Next I read Giampaolo will try Hakan as regista in Biglia's place. That's great. Hakan regista, Suso TQ, Castillejo SS... what could go wrong, huh?


Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Equally, we're a midtable side so what harm is there in trying something completely left field?

He switched from trequartista in his Inter and Brescia days to playing in front of the defense for the rest of his career. His transformation is one of the biggest and most influential in recent football history. Call it whatever you want, but I was trying to make a point.


True, but I was just trying to be exact over what he was. And that wasn't a DM. You're dead right with your point, Carlo created a whole new brand of football with him.

It was as significant in the early noughties as Pep's tiki taka was a decade or so later.

Pirlo was NEVER a DM.

He was a completely new position made more or less for him by Carlo in regista. I know our glory days are a bit behind us now but let's not turn Pirlo into something he definitely wasn't.

Guy couldn't defend for toffee (!)

Not Milan related, but has anyone seen Joao Felix? Probably the best player in the world for the next 10 years alongside Mbappe. Atletico have done it again.


tbf Atletico did nothing. Benfica did it all then banked themselves £130M. Usually Atleti get these guys for minimal outlay then sell at a horrific profit. Falcao, Aguero, Torres, Forlan etc. This time they're paying standard market rate for a world class player. Only got him for that price mind you because he's only 19.

The guy's numbers, for a 19 year old, are absolutely unreal. 26 league apparances, 15 goals and 9 assists.

You're right about Mbappe, I pegged him for the world's best striker when he merely broke through at 18. He was remarkable and it was clear he would be the best unequivocally. He's already a world cup winner.

About as good as they get.

We should not blow out of proportion Suso's TQ play. I mean he had one good friendly game and perhaps the one in Kosovo but that's hardly important. MilanNews also jumped the gun with him being marked as very good for the TQ.

I'm not convinced he's good for that position and agree with Han, he's too selfish and too self-centered to fulfill his main duties.

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).


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