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.

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.

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

30 goals in 178 games, bench player at Atletico. You can shove those 55M up your bum.


You say that only because we can't afford it. This crazy is the new normal.

Players aren't worth the asking price, the selling club just has the power to get what they want now.

Harry Maguire for 80M?! It stopped making sense a long time ago.

30M? I'm not saying he's a great player, because he isn't, but that's all we want?! We could easily get 3 times that.

Agreed. But, Man U weren't doing so well either.


They finished higher than Everton did when he was in Everton's team!

QUOTE
I think he could work in Italy where the pace of football is slower and relies on physicality.


Fair point, still see him as totally overrated but hey what do I know.

Unlike us, they worked through their FFP problems and also qualified for CL.


You implying we're not well run ;)

Now, is Lukaku worth that kind of money? I think not.


tbh anyone with any sense wouldn't.

Lukaku is probably the most overrated club striker in world football. He peaked at Everton. 12 in 32 for Man Utd last season... 14 in 34 the season before.

Everton he was regularly getting 18+ for a team who created much less.

This guy is living on his reputation from his Everton days. And for his admittedly fine goal return for his country.

I would have been so upset if we'd wasted 70M on him.

Bonucci was not a disappointment.


We're not all zipped up from behind mate.

And Siva was a question mark when we signed him, so we didn't really know what to expect.

But when you think about it, we're in better shape now than 4-5 years ago, when we were finishing 10th in the league.

Last season we missed the CL for one point, our best result since 2013.

And I am hopeful for next season.


I can't argue with any of the logic in here. But it doesn't make me hopeful!

He meant "if". Biglia and Kessie are apparently on the market.


Ah got it. Sorry for my being miles out of the loop the past few months, my passion for Milan, while not and never gone, definitely dimmed.

Seeing the current state of this once-glorious club really is depressing.

Milan was one of the toughest teams out there with a 4-3-1-2 (sometimes diamond and at times Christmas tree) formation-back in the day (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif) ... it might be dated, but it is down to the coach and ultimately if the team jells to the formation.


True, but bear in mind with midfields and flanks being so dominant now, going two up front and sacrificing a man in midfield and the flanks makes us vulnerable.

It's not a good way to move forward.

In short, we'll be outnumbered.

But in all honesty, the 1-2 does seem antiquated. I hope it works. You never know... there was a time almost no team played with wingers.


I actually like having it but no one uses it. That we are is... well doesn't that sum us up these days (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Dude, we ARE! Giampaolo plays 4-3-1-2. Suso is being used a trequartista behind the two strikers.


Maybe I should have prefixed 'team' with 'credible'.

Who plays two strikers and a man behind? I literally can't think of a single team who does that now.

So Morelos being looked at as a possible replacement for Silva. 15M.

Leao a far better player to Silva, and a better prospect. 10 goals/asists in 24 in France at age 20 for the second top team to PSG only is a fair chunk better than anything you can do in Portugal. Whether he has the mental strength to deliver in our shirt is the real question, but I wouldn't compare to Silva.

This is a signing I'm happy with.

I gave up long ago on these pre-season matches. I somehow came to the conclusion that you can learn little about the true quality of the team from them.


Correct. I learned this from Rangers - promising pre-seasons then league action a completely different animal. Serie A is similar - a far different beast to a friendly.

Competitive in what sense? Fighting for 10th spot? In which case I firmly agree.
