As of today, Bonaventura is in pole position to replace the suspended Calhanoglu on the left wing against Napoli [Corriere della Sera]

Harass opponents in midfield, play the ball to the wings QUICKLY, and get balls in the box.

I'm not saying we are completely similar, but there are free flowing attaching teams like Liverpool and Monaco from two seasons back who score goals at will with not much midfield creativity. You have to create turnovers and move the ball quickly, but I think we can set our midfield up like that. If we play the same slow paced Milan style we've seen for years now, teams will fall deep and we won't break them down enough. Gattuso changed it after montella and had Jack and Kessie running the channels well, and we created a lot of chances last season. All our creativity is in our wingers. Gotta keep that mentality and improve on it. One things for sure, we shouldn't be losing any midfield battles from here out
for that to happen you need proper wingers though. suso is a good player but he is more of a central player not a winger. Same with hakan. We need one more winger at the very least. I would prefer 2. samu is great but we still sorely miss another alternative in case our LW gets injured.

It is not official yet. In addition, our signings arrived close to the end of mercato. They should need time to get used to Gattuso's tactic and instructions.

It is just too early to judge.

it's fodderish to start all new signings from the get-go so I guess castillejo will be brought in second half given that Higuain is starting and maybe Caldara too.

Absolutely nothing wrong with starting Bonaventura on the wing. Itís his best position and you canít be starting new signings when theyíve barely been here for a week.

So excited to see Higuain play, imagine he scores against Napoli on debut. Itíll be beautiful, 3 points are absolutely vital here. Get rid of one of the toughest opponents away early and take the points would be huge for confidence and belief within the group. Forza Milan, Iím expecting great things this season.

Very tricky game. Iíd only start Higuain from new comers and leave bakayoko, samu and laxalt for 2nd half if we are chasing a result.

If you don't play Bakayoko from the first minute, who is going to play as LCM? We don't have alteranative except Bertolacci. He is just like Bakayoko, new player under Gattuso. Playing Bonaventura there will make Borini play as left wing .

Higuain and Bakayoko starter, other new signings coming from the bench.

Iíd play bona lcm and start samu on the wing.

You know what to expect with bona biglia kessie. Itís not the right time to experiment in the midfield.

That makes sense since we play against Napoli. So, one new player besides Higuain has to play otherwise one of Borini, Montolivo, Bertolacci and Mauri will play.

With Calhanoglu susoended and Bonaventura likely to start at LW, I think Bakayoko has to start at LCM.

Agree on Samu, heís going to need some time to settle in with the squad. However I wouldnít be surprised to see Caldara start next to Romagnoli because Musacchio and Romagnoli are very similar. For this match I think itís wise to go with Musacchio but I have a feeling itíll be Caldara.

Iíd love Samu to start but according to reports Bona is going to get the LW spot for this match. Hopefully Samu really impresses in training.

Bona at LW will result in:

- runs with the ball into the opposition player and loses it.
- runs with the ball into space with his head down, doesn't look around and crosses to nobody.
- runs with the ball into space with his head down, doesn't look around and shoots the ball somewhere in the stands.

He has competitor now who is probably better than him (Bonaventura's performance last season). Jack has to step his game up otherwise he will lose his position as starter.

For LCM he will compete with Bakayoko if Hakan still plays on the left wing. If Hakan is moved to LCM, Bonaventura will compete with Castillejo to earn the left forward spot in starting eleven.

I expect an improvement of Bonaventura's performance this season.

Also, Bona will have Higuain as a partner, not exactly the same player he had last years.

We shouldn't rush with Caldara either (remember what happened with Rodrigo Ely), but wait for the easier opponents to build chemistry. I wouldn't be surprised to see Zapata partnering Roma. He was decent last season when we draw with Napoli. He compliments Roma with physicality and is good squad player.

Really shame Hakan is suspended. It's either Bakayoko or Samu to be thrown in to the mix. My guess for starting eleven:

--Bona--Higuain--Suso---
-Bakayoko-Biglia-Kessie--
RR-Roma-Zapata-Calabria
