I'm not exactly sure what you judge him on, but the on-the-pitch stuff isn't his portfolio. Did he really have any say on the players and who came-and-went?

I guess revenues is one way, but without success, teams lose revenue. Look at us. We are making the same amount as when we were in 2003 I believe?

I guess you look at shirt deals, revenue, and sponsorship relationships.

Elliott has, so far, went for the best possible executive team. I mean, having Scaroni as our President--former CEO of ENI--that's mighty impressive.
Milan definitely needs this type of executive. The way this club has spiraled down the last 10 years should be proof enough that you need people at the helm who can adapt to modern economic landscape.

Yep. I've been repeating this like a parrot since the mercato. Unless we have half a starting XI full of top players we can forget about challenging for anything. Right now we only Higuain + Romagnoli. If we can pick up Fabregas/Rabiot and Di Maria for free and splash out on SMS and Martial next summer we'll be top 3 guaranteed.

The truth is Juve and Napoli will finish top 4. The other 2 position will go to one of Inter, Milan, Roma, Lazio and maybe a wildcard team

Its going to be a dogfight and we need a midfielder like Rafinha in january
They create chances vs teams. Whilst I think we will beat more of the top teams than lazio, I trust lazio to beat teams like cagliari away , genoa away ect.

EPL shirt sponsor deals tend to just improve, so it doesn't say much.

Gazidis isn't doing any better than the other EPL CEOs, other than at robbing fans when it comes to ticket prices.

No one's denying that this club has been mismanaged for a long time.

What makes Gazidis worth the 4-5m he's demanding? There is no signs of extraordinary brilliance from him, perhaps other than at sucking up to billionaires.

We should've done better. Hakan wasn't great. Kessie actually was. That's the funny part of the criticisms of Kessie. He didn't deserve any. He made sure the goal was scored.

Hakan didn't play well. I haven't seen him play this badly since he was with Montella.

Thing is, he played really well against Roma until he ran out of gas.

I don't see why people are fucking happy at a bad result.

My question is this: would you rather be right or Milan win? I think I know the answer.
Lol don't get your knickers in a twist. Nobody's saying Kessie + Hakan are shit. Both are good players but they certainly aren't the world beaters some think they are hence the comparisons to Suso. Ask yourself honestly, would either player start at Juve, Napoli, Lazio or even Inter? Exactly. Would L+M have signed either player had they joined the club under the Chinese? Nope.

As for Bonucci, like I said earlier, he was dogshit under Montella (like everybody else) but one of the standout performers under Gattuso. Romagnoli also seriously upped his game playing alongside him.

Nobody is happy that we put in a shit performance and got a bad result yesterday. However, the same posters that were screaming Gattuso = Conte and top 4 is a lock suddenly disappeared. Be consistent. At least I had the decency to say we played great in the first hour against Napoli and first half against Roma (which I repeated again today).

At the end of the day some of us have been Milan fans for decades and remember an entirely different club to the one we find today. We remember benches packed full of top players and being managed by the best coaches around. We're sick and tired of seeing the likes of Hakan, Biglia, Bona and Suso represent these great colours whilst the 6th amateur coach since Allegri takes charge after 5 seasons out of CL. We're used to watching the best and we expect this to continue. It's crystal clear that the teams that finish highest have the best coaches and most top players and until this changes we'll continue to struggle.

No muppet...they should be prepared to objectively review every performance like I do instead of sweeping things under the carpet when it doesn't suit their agenda.

I’m not saying he has been playing well enough to justify his salary. RnB has a tendensy to blame the likes of Donna, RR and Biglia for all of the goals conceded. Meanwhile Romagnoli can do no wrong despite having never shown close to enough quality to live up to the hype.
