Summarize our season how far we reached as a team.

Put that clip for our boys before each game with some heavy metal music & without saying a word just open the door & send them to war.

One of the most enjoyable matches for me as a fan this season.
We had to bounce back.
We had to give it all.
At times we looked rusty and lacked confidence.

But we created more chances than in the previous 3 matches combined.
The players we know can create individually looked like their old selves again.

And we got the result.

Fingers crossed - Milan is back?

Not sure i agree with everyone criticising Tonali. I thought he did well in ticking the game over often dropping deep to provide an outlet for our cbs. He did well generally covering gaps. Yes the passing was off slightly but you try dealing with that pressure so young. He's starting to play with a lot more freedom and trust in his ability.

Tomori is clearly a top top player, Ive got friends who watched him at lower league clubs at england when he was on loan and said he was great there so the class is permenant. Other teams will find out about his high press and thats when we will see his true strength.

I don't think it was great individual performances but it was a good team performance. Pioli has worked out our issue before we played out through the fullbacks now there is focus through the middle, he has countered that after Inter and Spezia so credit to Padre Pioli, but it still needs work.

Also been really impressed with Calabria, really aware in both attacking and defending phases.

Good result.

Watching the penalty again, I'm not sure how Fazio wasn't sent off in the first half. First, he picks up a yellow for the foul on Calabria and then he sarcastically applauds the referee and gets away with it. Should've been two yellows for the whole incident.

So Pioli grows a pair and drops his poor performing captain and then takes off a poor hakan at half time and the whole team plays better.

Coincidence?

The days of top notch Italians are long gone, previously we were used to watching Maldini, Baresi, Totti, R.Baggio, Vieri, Buffon, Nesta, Cannavaro, Del Piero, Pirlo... Today the best Italian players are arguably Donnarumma and Verratti, and then I struggle to name two more really good, possibly Insigne and ....? I'm not sure wether any of them are among top 50 footballers world wide. Chiellini&Bonucci are nowhere near Cannavaro&Nesta, let alone Baresi&Maldini - actually the Juventino's are far closer to Materazzi. At their peak they were arguably at the level of Costacurta&Tassotti, not throughout their entire careers though.
Well even tho he plays for the enemy... barella has been playing well... then locatelli is starting to become one of our ?what ifs...?

To be honest based on our latest performances i didn't expected much watching this one, i was even going to miss it because i had other things to do but i figured i can't do that and i'm glad i did watch it.

it wasn't the cleanest performance but what i liked the most is the spirit of the team which seemed dead in the past games, and what i really liked is that finally pioli had some balls to sack that useless romangoli out, tomori was a beast from behind with kajer we can really form a great defensive pair, and that is something we didn't have for around 10 years now.

also i liked rebic in this game, finally a good game, not just hardworking or fluke goal, just a solid performance all around the game, also i felt like sales got better when ibra was off the field, it is like having your bully out and he had no fear.

what i didn't like is the useless tonali still playing , we improved hugely when he got subbed off, i hope benacer is back next game, also we need hakan to be back to form, he is around 30 - 40 % of our attacking power with him out of form we are weak in the linkage between defense and attack.

anyway great win, great spirit, hope bloody inter lose points or some of their main fuckers injured (barella, lukako) they got the best luck of injures this season, i hope that changes.

It is fantastic to get back to winning ways. We should have been out of sight by half time.

Tomori was class and Romagnoli can not play in this team on current form.

We got lucky, still bad in defense though. The wingers actually doing their job for a change helped a lot.

We did a decent game yesterday. I liked Kessie a lot, also Rebic near the goal as always.. it was a fine victory. Three points much needed.

I think Rebic can be the closest player to emulate Shevchenko. When he is in the game, he can be deadly. He took the goal beautifully

context of my post was players rating for this game - best and fail

and i show the example were 1 mistake of defender makes him total flop
and 2 missed good chances (in reality ibra had 3 good opportunities to score in first 9 minutes) still allow attacker to not be considered as worst on the pitch.

Pioli: "Can Tomori stop Lukaku? He is doing well, he has different characteristics from the others. But for technical and physical characteristics, Tomori is better at playing against Lautaro or Sanchez, he's fast but not that powerful to counter such attackers. He is intelligent, I'm happy with his performances.


positive: leao, duarte, ibra, gabbia, hauge, donna?, krunic, rebic, hakan, theo?

Romagnoli didn't play in this game
- He had continuous poor outings that led to him being criticized - inside and out of this forum.

Ibra messed up and some were critical of him (leading some persons in the other thread to talk about persons not being appreciative of him)
- I think it was right to be critical of Ibra during that game given the context of us being in a delicate moment and needing to win. If Ibra had played like that last year during the historic run then people wouldn't care at all.

Given that we won vs Roma it's OK but if we had dropped points then much more people would look at the performance more carefully.

We held on this past game v. Roma and I didn't like it. We should have scored 2-3 goals in the first half but since we didn't the second half was us barely holding on and being defensively frail once more. The fact that Tonali played as a type of 3rd CB on many Roma attacks deep in the box doesn't spell good things for defensive organization and it has looked like this since the start of 2021. This IMO is on Pioli either style of play or poor formation set-up v. opponents, or sometimes both, but Pioli needs to get this team moving again, b/c it looks like we're just holding on at the moment. Really important to come out with top energy against Udinese tomorrow regardless of some starters missing.

We deserved to win but it was not pretty. Either way I'm glad to get back to winning ways but man that was not pretty. Thank God for Rebic who played amazing and was actually back on form b/c literally none of the other attackers were... Ibra was dominant early but couldn't bury, Saelemaekers was better than his past few performances and always works hard but was average, Leao lazy besides 2-3 runs (classic Leao), Calhanoglu looked awful, and Diaz while he worked hard was more or less ineffective.
