Yeah he's great at running with full speed till the pitch ends. I can already tell what Abate will do before he does it, it's always the same thing: run at full speed, cut outside, and either hit the defender blocking him with his cross or cross into the arms of the GK then jog back.

Pathetic excuse for a footballer and an international player.

he has been pretty good lately and has gotten a lot of unneeded hate. He has put at least 2 crosses directly onto Prince's head, and one to Pazzini and they failed to score. He has been playing fine overall.

Since his crossing isnt a strong point, I wonder how he would take the shift to LB, he could still defend pretty well and would be cutting in to his stronger foot, while freeing up DS to play as RB where he is stronger going forward

I found De Jong trying too hard to avoid passing the ball to this guy.

And I'm sure all his correct crosses are accidents.

When was the last good match he played? Cos it surely wasn't this season or last one. It must have been that Cristiano Ronaldo game which apparently made his career.

Like his excellent covering in the 3rd goal? Or how Antonini and Montolivo had at different times to leave their positions and cover for that fucker?

Sad to see him flip the ball forward and try to cross, coz everytime that "special" move is foreseen by the defenders. Terribly lacking creativity and improvisation, I very much doubt he will improve any more in the future. Verdict: sell, while he's still regarded as an International player.

Keep him, just move him out of the RB position. The position requires a good understanding of when to attack and when to defend (transition and read of the game.) Unfortunately, Abate is pretty much useless attacking, so why does he go so high on the pitch? I do not know that. I do not think he is awful or great like many people shift their opinion of him; however, I think he could like Rino/Ambro that they were not great technically or gifted passers; however, with the right attitude and place to play he could perform better.

Abate is absolute trash.

Get rid of the limited piece of crap.

He's regressed so much from those solid defensive heights of 2010... now he's a liability and a one-track mind... highest crossing percentage? true... good at crossing at Milan? Nope... in fact, most definitely the worst crosser we have.

Yes. Abate has managed to plummet to such depths that he is quite easily the worst crosser of the ball we have on our team... and he plays RB..

And the worst thing he has the position locked down due to some hardcore milanista pseudo leader persona he has built up. It pains me to see anto and abate on the field and de sciglio on the bench,

in 2010/11 - this guy was my idol.

his rise to the 'top' was inspiring. the nullification of the ronaldo and the eto'o and the fact that it was IMPOSSIBLE for left wingers to cut on his outside and get behind him was the reason why id scream out abate whenever i played football and was gonna run up like a train

thats what he is. a train.

then last season he just looked like a fool on the pitch. the transition was quick and alarming. the abate runs were no more and i was sad

now he just is

whenever he cuts inside *those rare moments* you think he might actually see something, but then you watch the way he is running with the ball, it just looks like he is gonna fail miserably.

i remember back in 09 (leonardo) where even though he made a trillion and three mistakes, i had hope for him and believed he could be something.

he peaked the next season.

now i dont know what to say about him. this season was all about him reestablishing himself and growing into the responsibility on his shoulders but you know what...

the fucker is a satisfied person. he doesn't even look like he enjoys the game. Way too content with his vast array of skills* his speed now only makes him seem worse because of how inefficient he uses it.

We can all cut outside a defender and cross. Pace isn't even required, just timing..

abate needs to be relegated to the bench. as in, seriously benched. not 'rested' so de sciglio can show his aaaah and be benched again. He needs to be benched. De sciglio needs to show him what else a right back can do apart from pass to himself

Was watching liverpool vs reading hours before the lazio episode, players like Glen Johnson are LIGHT YEARS ahead of this guy - even attacking wise, and he was playing left back. Was the most dangerous player on the pitch even though everyone was playing well, he just offered the team that edge which Abate COULD do if he fucking tried to play football and play with more freedom.

His satisfaction and belief that his only move is efficient as hell is restricting him. If I were Allegri, the half where Abate would be on the touchline closer to me would be the worst 45 abate'd cop because of how much shit ill be screaming at him

Needs to play football and act like one. Italy national team player? Good. Now don't punish all of Italia too cos of your limitations. OPEN UP!

try new things, gain confidence on the ball and use your pace as a support factor, not your only one. Players like urby emanuelson have pace and use it well cos it complements their play, de sciglio doesn't even have the rampaging runs in him but he is much more efficient with end product.

Abate, you were an inspiration.

Were.

The problem is we have no game plan!!! (Well, unless you count our new refine tactics: When in doubt cross fingers, toes and into the box!)

He is a fool.

A downright idiot if he thinks after all this shit we've seen all season he has a chance to get himself in the PSG.

Thing is, with him, the love was genuine - the nocerino fantasy existed but it was mainly cos of his looks and them goals - with abate, i would relate on a football pitch and in my life.

I don't like his attitude, it was the only thing going for him - it brought him to the starting xi (cos there was soooo much competition ) but he really did earn it in 10/11

Players like him and Antonini claim to love the shirt - Antonini has his limitations but the guy at least stepped up - he was ronaldinho's legs in 09/10. All you got to do is cut inside from the left flank and Abate would leave you the fuck alone - us fans get annoyed but its worse when he does actually attempt to get the ball, he'd do something dumb. Milito has violated this guy cos he wont go on his outside, he'd cut in and hit the team.

There was a post recently about how he 'jogs' back and that killed us against Lazio. Absolutely true.








Just stop tormenting us. Please Ignazio - your not the same guy. Just write your name on one of the San Siro seats and sit the fuck down. Watch De Sciglio take your NT spot for 2014 whilst us Milan fans at least see the progression of an eager and talented player.

Abate used to represent me, I have my limitations but my attitude would let me be, he lost that. So he has no attitude and no talent. No desire to make a difference
