We may soon see a strange situation where Milan captain is a bench player. Unless he improves a lot.
Roma is under-performing this season big time. He isn't the same player from previous years. At a time when he should be entering his prime and improving, he is regressing. It's worrysome.

But what's really shocking is how good this team is while still having a weak link at RW and CB.

So in his Milan-Napoli-Review he says that you can argue all day if you want about who has the strongest team on paper, the best coach or the highest probability of winning the league and no one really could say it. However what's obviously and hardly arguable is that atm Milan has the best group out there in terms of team spirit and that's what makes the difference.

He goes on by saying for example, look at Zlatan. Right now there is no player in Serie A who makes the bigger difference than him. However if you reduced Milan to Zlatan only you made a huge mistake because if you look at how the second goal came, you see a beautiful pass from Hakan to Rebic, who then dribbles his way on the flanks only to draw a pitch perfect cross to Zlatan. That's what means having the best group out there and only fools would reduce Milan to Zlatan when in fact you have the whole team around him that together with Zlatan forms that strong unity no other team in Serie A can compete with.

Then, in conclusion, he comes back to the concept of how "we" (Interisti) always continue babbling about this huge player (Eriksen) or that phenomenon (Messi) who's needed to finally make Contes system click but that is only an illusion because what you need is a strong bond, a unity, actually exactly that what Milan right now is and has and the reason why "they" are leading the table with little phenomens Zlatan excluded and the youngest team in Italy if not even in Europe.

These journalists go write Demiral is close to joining Milan and you're just as close as reporting Hakan to Juve
If the Instagram tag said Milano, they would've. But it's Turin, so Hakan *must* be there with Demiral to speak to Juventus!

Maybe because that weak link isn't even that weak? Or at least functional enough. You don't go unbeaten in so many games, score as much as we do over so many months, if your team lacks holes as big as some fans are still insisting.

I think it's just highlighted bc rest of the team are performing well and he just returned from injury.

Contract extensions talk aside, I think Romagnoli deserves a bit more good grace from the fans.

Roma was made to look like an amateur on several occasions this season. If we are to contend for the title he needs to either improve or be upgraded in January.

So was Koulibaly tho. Roma faced some pretty tough opponents too. It's okay to suffer them at times although I agree he hasn't found his mojo quite yet since returning from his injury who held I'm out for three months.

You saw Koulibaly yesterday? The so called top 3 defender in the world was caught being 3 meters away from Zlatan (our only player in the box) on 2 occasions that led to a goal.

Romagnoli was out for nearly 4 months and had zero pre season preparation. He recovered from his injury and was thrown into the fire the next day. He's been playing without any rest since then despite picking up another injury. After he recovered, he immediately played full 90 minutes against the strongest team in the league and did fine. His only mistake yesterday was for the goal but there was a foul before that, the whole defense was caught unprepared and he did touch the ball. He did what he had to, unfortunately his touch wasn't enough. It was a matter of a few centimeters.

Scaroni: “I'm very busy on the stadium. It is fundamental for Milan "

it seems to me to be something you can't say no to. I think we will put the first brick next year. When the council approves the project, we will move from a preliminary project to a detailed design. We will invest only in this 50 million and, from the middle of next year, we will start the works. This is the plan we have in mind. ”Thus the President of Milan, Paolo Scaroni, spoke about the situation of the Milan stadium to Sky Sport.

Definitely this group of players are beautiful to see them play good no nonsense football. Every goal from last night had a head and tail. Ibra's presence is huge to this young team. What is most important is that passes and crosses to Ibra don't come from one ore two source.Theo with two very similar assist. Bennacer replicating the same thing,than you have Rebic,Hakan, Saele. And that's why opponents can't just shut down one player,if for example they want to mark Bennacer aggressively ,there is Rebic or Hakan or Leao. This system is clearly working.Our first 11 can play with any team.in the league. It will be very hard to find vice Ibra .You can't learn movement just like that.

What does Koulibaly have to do with Roma?

They are 8th in the table for a reason. We are 1st. If we are to continue being 1st we need to upgrade our weak links, Roma being the worst of them.

Exactly, both looked terrible on numerous occasions especially the goals. Defenders making mistakes or being beaten by attackers is perfectly normal.

Don't defend him.Politano running in front of him like he was shinkansen,because of that Kjaer almost got injured,than dangerous pass to Theo when 3 Napoli player were near him.
I guess anyone in this forum have their fav players and expect more. And I'm sick of Romagnoli, i think he is the weakest player currently that we have.I have a feeling that coaches play him only because he play with left foot.
Upgrade is necessary than maybe we can see his grinta from the bench. And if rumors are true that Raiola ask 5 million per year for him than sell him to first buyer.

He did more mistakes than Romagnoli yesterday. It is normal to commit mistakes, after all we are talking about humans. Some people are way too demanding. I have watched numerous games of every team this year already and I can tell you that defenders like Koulibaly, Manolas, Kolarov, Bastoni, Demiral, Bonucci, Acerbi, Romero, etc. have already made countless mistakes. It is what it is. Every player makes mistakes.

RW is a much bigger need IMO. Our RW is practically non existent this season.
Samu and Alexis have the staggering 1 goal and 0 assists combined this season in Serie A.

So, we should shit on him because he couldn't outrun one of the fastest players in the league?

BTW Kessie lost a tooth after Politano's elbow which was not even called foul iirc

One of his weakness .What was that shit when Napoli scored.What if was 0-0 at that point?
We need better defender,it's simple. One of the worst captains that Milan had. When he leave Milan, that will be definite comeback of Milan to the world stage.First step was getting rid of Suso .

I believe romagnoli will come good eventually, I am giving him the benefit of doubt from his long layoff. But to his fans he has been directly responsible for at least one goal every game we've conceded in the past couple of games.

He is making silly fouls and concentration errors on top of his bad 1v1 defending. He really struggles against physical strikers and he somehow seems slower than Kjaer.

A large part why we are so vulnerable in set pieces.

Having said all of that I don't believe Gabbia is better so lets hope he comes out of his rut.

What was 'that shit when Napoli scored'? Kessie lost the ball in a very dangerous area (foul IMO), Calabria and Kjaer are eliminated by a single pass and somehow the goal is solely on Romagnoli, ok

We need a defender, that's a fact, but blaming Romagnoli for every goal we concede is idiotic.
