Theo does more.
and i would not call him a one man show...yes he has the ability to make great runs many times during the games ... but the amount of combinations happening on that side with Rebic, Hakan, Ibra to for him end up behind the defense is significant. it's great teamwork going on there



2. ANYTHING could work long term, if you shop right for it and address the shortcoming such pairing would have ... whether it's by switching system or adding a different type of player somewhere in the mix ... but as we stand right now with this formation and the role that 2 DM play, sustaining the pressure, intensity and briging the Physicality...that pairing will be very light, less energetic...Bennacer despite being small can hold his own... but this is just not Tonali's game ...
at the price we've got him, it's a good deal/an opportunity but in the immediate another type of midfielder was more of priority.

long term ok, probably in a different formation as well.
I am referring to Theo as a one man show compared to what we had for long in the defensive positions.
Our CBs are bad scorers, 2020-Conti offered only little going forward, Bennacer and Kessie only started pushing up with purpose at the end of the season. Theo was the only one eager to do something in attack, that changed now.

I personally see Tonali as a more defensive player than Bennacer, but also a little bit in between Kessie and Bennacer in terms of characteristics with some classic regista thrown in. Imo it is more about Tonali hitting form and settling than the combination.

I'll be highly disappointed now if we don't get him
We need a fast CB. Our CBs are not fast at the moment. If we play high press, we need a fast CB like Thiago Silva fast.

The importance of having Ibra to receive a long ball from Donna is just very crucial against high pressing team (we'll see if we run deep in EL).

https://totalfootballanalysis.com/da...-data-analysis

Basically, the study says playing long ball is safer vs playing from the back against high pressing team like the old Barcelona, now Bayern and Liverpool.
The risk of playing from the back if a defender losses possession is too high. We saw that very often under Gattuso who insisted on playing from the back even though we always conceded playing from the back.

agreed. That's why we need Bakayoko. Why can we just get him for a dry loan again if we don't have $ left.

Kjaer, Roma(Gabbia), Bennacer, Tonali: that is an insanely good passing quality from the back. Playing out from the back is the least thing I would worry about at this point. Of course a good target player never hurts.

The 4 players who we have no similar replacements for are 1. Kessie, 2. Theo, 3. Ibra 4
. Hakan

The first 2 would devastate our style of play if we ever lose one of them. We need a Kessie and Theo alternates (no Laxalt is not a sub for Theo. Offers 0 of what Theo offers)

The 3rd player is Ibra. We need an alternate target man to allow our wingers attack the space opened up.

4. Brahim is not really like Hakan but I guess we can get away with It kind of. I. An ideal world a player like Rodrigo de Paul would be useful to our roster. Can alternate with Hakan and also play deeper and even on the wings of on an emergency

We must absolutely get players in those first 3 positions as well as a CB.

Sir, pardon

I was a football coach, similar subs is impossible

despite having the obligation of making a certain strategy, coaches adapt to players' style.
So if something happened to Milan first team players, its down to Pioli's tactical approach to make their subs useful.

What is everyone's opinion as to whether we end up with Chiesa?

If we buy a talented young CB like Fofana, one of Romagnoli, Kjaer and Fofana needs to sit on the bench if all of them are available. I know, young CB could be a replacement for Kjaer for the next years but the Danish is still 31 years old, still could play for next couple of years.

With 5 subs, there will be heavy rotation all season and Kjaer will always be a candidate to come off and be preserved. Romagnoli, Kjaer, Fofana, and Gabbia would all rotate and get a lot of time.

If Milan manage to qualify EL,
Milan will play twice a week, once in three of four days.
Good depth is what every team need to survive this odd period.

Lets say milan will play 5 match in 13 days
Rom-Kja
Rom-Fof
Fof-Kja
Rom-Kja
Rom-Fof
everyone gets to play 3-4 times and without significant quality gap in each game.

Unlikely.

Hawg, Baka, Fofana is the dream right now. Probably try Huage at RW at some point just to see if it?ll work... Can?t be worse than Samu right now.
