This one is on Pioli.

Schocking attitude nevertheless. This team has a built in looser mentality. Every time things become serious, we crumble.

On Pioli to a certain extent. I absolutely hated the subs. But some players are simply not good enough and as soon as you remove the starter and put in the replacement the drop in quality is not simply a dip but a huge plunge

I thought we controlled the first half. Came out completely flat footed in the 2nd.

But those last 30 minutes or so were appalling.


Leao btw... where do I start with this kid FFS? His laziness and general body language just p!sses me off to the nth degree!

Controlled? In what way? By putting up a veteran performance?

The whole game was appalling. Pioli said our strategy is to win all games. Well.. with that kind of attitude, we won't win anything anymore.

All the other top sides have easy games tonight if I'm not mistaken. I think we'll hold on to 2nd for 2 more weeks and then we'll relinquish that as well

Let's all pray big time for CL. Because if that doesn't come, the future of this club is a huge question mark with the financial situation as is

Not just on the subs, but the attitude of the team is the coach's fault as well. Look at these players! It's like they're playing the Trofeo Moretti in August, man! Aaaargh... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/realmad.gif)

I thought so. We created the better chances, moved the ball better and generally pressed well imo. That's only the first half though. 2nd half was nightmarish

Honestly, after the fiasco of this past week with the super league and now the team seemingly not being able to pull themselves out of this slump, I'm tempted to just pull the curtain on this season. The only thing still keeping me going is the hope for CL football next season

Indeed, we didn't control jackshit.

But then you have to make the subs with more intelligence. Leaving Leao was a mistake. Not giving Hauge the nod but forcing Krunić in another. Taking off both Rebić and Hakan who at least tried to look dangerous while leaving Alexis and Leao was ludicrous.

Insisting on Krunić is another stupid fixation that brings us nowhere.

Why did Meite start? Why starting Leao who was piss poor the other game? Why not giving Romag the nod today? We need our captain back on the field IMO, Tomori is not that better yet to be preferred all the time. Donna isn't doing the same motivational job as Romag IMO. Several mistakes by Pioli today.

Anything new? The same has been going of for how many seasons now? I'm tired of this team and everything around it.

True, but the huge dip that happened when the first sub were made was hugely notable imo

Pioli had Hauge and Diaz on the bench, why not let them play instead of Krunic and a disinterested Leao? So mad today man. I've rarely felt this way about this team this season, unlike in the past. We've dealt with a LOT and we still can't seem to get a full healthy squad (another issue that needs serious looking into this summer, the amount of injuries is beyond ridiculous at this point). But today I can't look the other way. We should have done more.

Our counter attacks have completely gone to sh!t, when just last season they were inch perfect. We're trying to be too overly fussy in the build0up and losing the ball. We're not pressing like we should be. Certain players are not putting in the effort that's needed.

Agreed on all counts re the subs

I think this mostly shows that Pioli is now as well showing fear and being far more reserves in his choices. Krunic, Samu, etc are the "safe" conventional choices off the bench.

Disagree on the Tomori thing though. He's been amazing since the moment he arrived and deserves to be playing imo. Plus he gives us something that neither Romagnoli nor Kjaer offer, which is speed.

But at least the previous seasons we weren't fed false hope. We were sh!t from the word go and generally stayed so throughout the season.

This season we started so well and put ourselves in such an excellent position. Now we're just p!ssing it away with barely a whimper

Pioli post match comments are becoming worse than Inzaghi's, talking about how we played well and created a lot. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)

Shows a true lack of character for a coach. He just doesn't have the balls to admit we played a horrid game.

So, tonight Ibra supposedly will sign a new contract until 2022.

Our main striker for next season will be a 40 year old that earns 7 million per season and plays half of the games.

I honestly am appalled. As much as I value what Ibra has brought to the table for us since his arrival, we cannot hope to have him as main striker for yet another season. Who's gonna sub him when he'll (obviously) be out for most of the games? Leao? Mandzukic? Are we going to spend 30-40 million for another striker? I sincerely hope our management has a clear plan, cos if they think we'll be competitive as we are they are worse than Fassone and Mirabelli.

Who said Ibra will be our main striker? If we manage to get the CL spot I'm positive we'll try signing Belotti or someone else. We'll be most probably looking to ship off Leao as well.

And if we fail to secure CL... well... then it's pretty irrelevant anyway because we'll be staying as we are minus the players we'll be forced to sell.
