Agreed, this is not working. Lets try a different approach.

Its never gonna be perfect. Not with these guys.

Good luck to us all.

If we can get a couple of goals then I'm sure confidence will rocket up, important that Piatek returns to scoring.

This is what i'm thinking also. We need a good performance to regain some confidence. If we start creating some chances we'll wake up. 2 up front will guarantee chances even if we lose numbers in midfield. A lot of faith in Bakayoko and Kessie to clean up loose balls.

I'm worried if Gattuso decides to play 4231 with Paqueta behind Piatek. Feels like they can easily cage Piatek and we'll keep trying long shots or crosses that are easily dealt with. We need someone to drag defenders away from Piatek.

Yes, if he does that then Piatek will get crowded out by 2 centre backs, they'll read and negate Suso easily and we'll again have to be resorting to Paqueta, Hakan or, even worse, Kessie trying to break away from markers and create something out of nothing, likely without having anyone free as an outlet.

Piatek and Cutrone need to both start. I'd be happy with 4-3-1-2 or 4-4-2. Piatek has been too isolated lately, Cutrone should help to open space up

So curious about Rino's press conference today. Some of the words will be indicative of how the ritiro went.

It's either going to be more of the "disappointing" and giving up as the last two weeks, or a complete 180* turnaround that he sees a lot in the team and until not mathematically possible they'll fight for 4th til the end.

Canít really tell much from the short clips, but the daily videos of the training sessions, you can see far fewer smiles than before. Seems like the atmosphere is really serious.

Or everyone is having a crap time.

I hope that Gazidis speech was full of hard talk. "No one is safe here if you don't perform. You guys have to get your fucking act together. We are going to war four times before you post a single picture on your instagram account."

Overall a much more upbeat, positive and determined press conference:


LIVE MN - Gattuso: "I'm against the withdrawal, but now I see an angry team. Resignation? Word that doesn't exist, I think about the Champions"



Team ready for the last four races? "Tomorrow I believe we will play a vigorous game, only those who have no heart will not be able to do it. We have been five days here and for some it has been difficult, tomorrow I expect a lot".

Lippi's words: "I have already responded to the story of the alibis I create for the players, I will try to improve. I don't think I defended my boys too much, I always said what I think".

Talked to Romagnoli? "Yes, he apologized for the gesture towards the referee and is part of the path that he too must do. He has improved a lot and can still grow".

Gattuso too good? "A different question. Even if we are young, we need to talk, we have to talk about things. Then maybe he has a grudge against it for a few days, but in a group of 27 people you have to behave like that. We're not people who do what they like, there's someone wrong. but then the rest are guys with heads and mentalities. I don't think I was too good, in fact sometimes I broke the boxes too much, but we'll see ".

The seventh current place : "We have thrown away too many points, opportunities that we have wasted. Now we have to believe it, we have lost the fourth place and we will try to go and get it again. Let's find ourselves ready, combative and with the knife between our teeth. "It is regret because we have been fourth for months and we have not managed to manage it."

Could you go to retreat first? "I've never thought about it before, I'm also against retreats. When you work well, you don't need to, I want to get to the day of the game, eat together and go to the camp like in other countries. But there are rules to be respected and it's a decision taken. But I repeat, I am against withdrawals ".

What do you expect for the next races? "The desire to show that we are not dead and the desire to show that we are there. I expect this, we can make up and show our value".

In the words of Mihajlovic : "They must give us strength, this is what they now think of us and we must find the strength and pride to react. Tomorrow we must also remember these words here".

The conditions of Conti : "Yesterday he did the first part of training with us, today he will try to train with the group".

Tried a different form? "Tomorrow we see".

The comparison with the groupthen the rest of the things I read are absurd. But with Leonardo and Maldini there is absolute respect ".

Players too defended? "I am sure the team has not heard of having alibis, they have always given their best, even in the last few races. Now we are these, the results say it. I do not regret everything I said in the season, we have always known how to react, tomorrow I expect that we will return to battle ".

The Bakayoko situation : "Everything is back, he apologized to the team and the same applies to him".

The evenings of the players : "I do not care about the evenings, in private life they do what they want and I am not a policeman, the important thing is that when you work you do things in a certain way. Those times I went out I always amused, but I respected the rules, I worked and nobody could tell me anything. If the players do evenings there is no problem, the important thing is that we work well here ".

Gattuso less convinced of the project? "But which one off? But do you know me? In your opinion, can I be turned off? What does it mean? It is normal that after only 5 points in seven days it is a bit like this ... But do you think I give up? always struggled since I was 17. When I no longer want to stay with my children and my dogs, I will enjoy life. If I had been discharged I would not have gone to the retreat with all the boys. cross, but it is not true that I am soft or resigned, you only say nonsense ".

The names next to Milan's bench : "My only goal is to go to the Champions League, and I have a two-year contract. The word resignation does not exist for me, the rest counts for nothing."

The meeting at Casa Milan : "No decision was made, we only talked about the group and what we could do. We basically repeated what we said in Turin. I read so many nonsense but we only talked about the players".

Mihajlovic's Bologna : "They are fine, since Sinisa has been traveling very fast. They have speed, they have changed their way of playing but I repeat, tomorrow we can still face the strongest team in the world, but we have a duty to have our say, to prove that we are alive with strong evidence ".

Corsa Champions still alive? "Those who play football, those who play sports, know very well that it takes ambition, the pride to hear that music and certain games ... Now we are experiencing a negative period and we need to look for something else, when we enter the tunnel we must analyze everything to understand what works and what doesn't. Who plays in Milan must have this ambition ".

The reasons for the withdrawal : "I did a stuff I didn't want to do, but there are rules to be respected for everyone. In times of difficulty, you need to understand the environment and the shirt you are wearing, I made the choice of retreat because it seemed to me that we all were no longer with our heads. We have been together for four or five days, this has strengthened us, we will see tomorrow ".

The moment of the group : "We trained well, it was a week in which I felt so many inaccuracies and so many wrong things. I took the decision to withdraw and the company supported me, I saw an angry team and we have to prove it in the field. The withdrawal is not the best, but we have a duty to take responsibility for everything ".

The first words of the technician : "Before starting, today is the birthday of Mattia Caldara and we want to wish him well. We are waiting for him with open arms, he is an unlucky boy and we are waiting for him".

Friends of MilanNews.it , good afternoon and welcome! Greetings come from Milanello where, in a few minutes, Mr. Gattuso will speak at a press conference on the eve of Milan-Bologna. The Devil, after long days of retreat at Milanello, will be called to the Mihajlovic test to return to hope in the Champions League, but waiting to know the results from the other fields because fate is no longer in the hands of the Rossoneri. Don't miss anything, not even a single technical statement: all live, all on MilanNews.it !

Strong words, far cry from the presser before the Torino game. Letís hope the spirit translates to the field as well.

Forza Rino and the boys.

Definitely better words. He sounds way more confident than in that pre-match-conference against Torino, let alone the post-match-interview. I hope to be proven wrong when I predict a draw tomorrow. But we'll see... Forza Milan anyway and always!

Remaining Atalanta fixtures: Genoa, Juventus, Sassuolo
Remaining Milan fixtures: Bologna, Fiorentina, Frosinone, SPAL

We have to win all 4 and if Atalanta win more than 1 it's basically over.

This match is probably the hardest. Montella is tanking Fiorentina, they got like 0 wins in 5 games.
