knee jerk reactions here.

one of few players here i can give a pass to this season because of his injuries/competition - he never had the chance to find form, he'll show his worth (or not) next season.

I won't write him off yet. Shocker of a performance but you can say the same about the majority of the team lately.

Coming off two long-term injuries into the midst of this shit show can't be easy.

Lets see what he can do until the end of the season. So far worst rb we got.

Like I said before I did not expect much from him this season.

Next season and with a better winger or formation I expect a real battle between Conti and Calabria for the RB position.

I think he’s really not capable of defending. If we move to a 3-5-2 next season, he’ll be a great asset. Otherwise, should cash in quickly.

But in reality he is just another Gasperini player with stats that made him look better than he is, like Bertolacci, Cristante and a bunch of other flops.


This is my only worry about signing players from Atalanta. The number of Gasperini players who flops in other clubs is remarkably high. They are just so system based.

Yeah, would've been much cheaper to bring in Gasperini instead of spending money on his average and injury-prone players (Conti, Kessie, possibly Caldara).

Conti has been out with two serious injuries for a long time. It will take months for him to get back to full fitness. He can then be judged.

What is everyone's feeling on him? Not sure he looks good enough to be a sure starter. At the same time, injuries take a toll, so he shouldn't be judged too harshly. I think he's a great crosser. However, I find him terrible on defence and I'm not sure that has anything to do with injury, as I remember him being the same as Atalanta - not as exposed considering he was a wingback there.

He's not a defender and we shouldn't expect him to be. That's the issue. As for how good he is, he's had two big injuries and needs time and a run of games next season before I'll judge.

Defending can be learned. If Abate could adjust and play as CB, then Conti should improve on his defensive skills too.

Now, Giuffredi has lifted the lid on just how close his client was to leaving Milan this summer, insisting that Conti is ready for the battle with Davide Calabria to become the first choice right-back.

“It is true, there were opportunities,” he told TMW, as per MilanNews.it.

“But then how could he look in the mirror? Going away from Milan meant going away defeated, and I always told Andrea that he must have as his objective returning to his peak and being able to look back without regrets in the future.

“But he’s fine now, he’s behind Calabria, but the important thing, like for horses at the racetrack, is to finish first. Don’t start first.” @SempreMilan

Really disappointed with how he let the penalty he caused get into his head, absolute horror show from that moment on.
Not good overall, Calabria is miles better and Conti + Theo puts too much stress on the defense. Theo at least makes up for it in attack.
