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.

I never did in the past but somehow I feel like as a fan that's the most productive thing I can contribute to help them get back in track and continue this wonderful journey that began almost a year ago. I mean it's easy to like and be a fan wen things are going well. It's even easier to be hyped. But the moment the team needs it's fans the most are the very exact moments we are going through now.

rumors are bvb wants above 80 millions (he has release clause since 2o22 set on 75?)
at top of that raiola will take 15+ millions
haaland padre is next for the money - rumors -> he has promised 10 millions.

I think we need a new strategy against teams who park the bus from start, or after they go down to 10.
The Udinese clusterfuck was partly due to a lack of continuity and the absence of certain important players, but only partly.
We've never been convincing against teams that sit back and let us figure out how to break their wall.
It's so bad that we genuinely seem worse when the opponents go a man down.
The provincial teams shouldn't be given more incentives to sit back than the ones they already have.

Our front 4 is often too predictable for teams that are willing to park a bus. They're warned in advance about our high number of attackers and set up accordingly. Ibra, an in form Hakan, Rebic, Bennacer and Calabria had the skills and chemistry to solve these difficult puzzles, but it becomes a difficult puzzle due to our strategy.
Seedorf's 4-2-4 had the same problem in home games, despite a higher points-per-game than Allegri that season.

I think Allegri and Montella's 4-3-whatever handled these home games the best.
Pretty much all that was needed were attackers with decent holdup play, and late runs from the midfield. We attacked in small numbers, until a 4th hidden attacker(Noce/Flam/Muntari/Poli/Bona) surprised them before they were able to retract. That was the unpredictability needed to break them down when individual creativity and brilliance were missing.

But of course, even something as simple as that requires certain type of personnel.
Do we even have a Noce, Flamini, Muntari, Poli or Bona type of player available?
A midfielder that can score?
Kessie has the mobility, but not the skills. Meite seems to have the skills but he doesn't have the mobility. Krunic has the mobility, but he seems only slightly less wasteful than Kessie.

I still remember when Seedorf put Poli as CF (nominally) in one game and everybody thought he'd gone insane, but turned out to be a great move.

Does anybody remember which game was that? Goodfella?
I dont remember this but I do remember Seedorf fielding Poli as AM and winger in his 4-2-3-1.

That was also the only time he wasn't a defensive liability for Milan against teams who could attack us.

What are your thoughts regarding Pioli's possible decision to play Krunic instead of Diaz on Sunday? Given the slim pickings currently, do you think that would be better than playing Diaz?

The game yesterday surely didn't help his characteristics, I can agree on that. I'm not complaining his lack of goals however, but his lack of spirit. He didn't even try to participate. For comparison: Rebic was played lone CF despite not being at his auge at all up there many times this season. He didn't do much better neither if you looked at numbers only. However, you clearly see two different attitudes on the pitch when you compare them; one that helps your team and one that seems to not even care.

I want Leao to be much hungrier on the pitch. Even, or better said, especially when the opponent doesn't suit his characteristics. At least try to offer something, and not seemingly enter the pitch with an excuse to begin with for not being deceive at all. That's not how he's gonna grow into a professional football player.
That's what it boils down to.

I think this is why my own team mates get mad at me when I play ball

If I think I can't do anything with the pass/opportunity I won't try

Then again I'm not getting gorillions to risk my body to not be in a condition to turn up for work the next day.

Good strikers put away chances. Great strikers can sniff out half chances and make things out of situations that didn't even look like opportunities. I hope Pioli can drill this into the guy because he really looks like a good kid. I want him to succeed even more than Andre Silva

Agree with Fella that we need midfielders who can score 7-8 non-PK goals per season. Jack with all his flaws always managed to put in a few, Flamini also was capable of pulling a surprise one.

I think Kessie and Benny can get there. First has a terribly strong shot and just need to learn how to aim it, the latter has a better aim and can also dribble himself into the box.

Besides this, we really lack someone super creative. Rebic and Leao are both OK, but nothing special at this chapter.

Pioli ball is spending 400% of your energy in the first 25-minutes, not scoring a goal, and then getting out-hustled by the other team for 65+ minutes.

bona was playing as winger or attacking mid
not on position were benna/kessie/tonali play.

our mid lacking assists/goals - yea, already mentioned 2 months ago
but its overall problem - benna and kessie are not good enough at it
tonali and meite .... not sure about anything
rumors we had about bakayoko - he wouldnt help in attack except headers?!
thats why i doubt our midfield of benna-kessie is good enough for top ucl spots.

we just need hardworking cm with some offensive abilities - scouts, statsmans??

He will rotating at #10 with hakan.

Safest way to integrate him and in a couple of seasons he can be moved back to deeper position.

Are there any players with exceptional dribbling skills that might be in our price range? Maybe expiring contract or some behavioral flaws. At this point, I'd take a gamble with someone similar to Taarabt.

I think we have the proper environment for outcasts to redeem themselves.

Against the Udineses out there, we need someone who could do stuff like this
