He isn't playing better than any of his "mediocre partners".
That's the problem.

He should focus on his own performance from now on. The rest are a bit of a lost cause and should be weeded out in next few transfer windows.
Agree on the leadership but the other defenders aren't that bad, we will not find a better left footed CB than Romagnoli who is willing to join us.
Zapata is easier to upgrade but not a bad fit for the role of the physical CB.

Let's not forget the DM in the equation, a van Bommel typ who really shields the bsck line while being decent in build up would help a lot too.

After all defense is something a coach always can and has to improve, Montella achieved a increase ln defensive stabilty, now its Gattuso's to get back there and improve it further

He actually is playing much better.

I'll give it 2 or 3 more reds before that point gets across. Or maybe it wont and people will start blaming Gattuso by then.

give it how many reds you want. what someone does in one minute doesnt make them worse than bonucci, if what they do for the other 89 mins of regular time is exactly what bonucci is doing, or even better.

This is how your reasoning would work.

"bonucci is actually fucking horrible.



I'll give it 2 to 3 more fuck ups like the one above before that point gets across."

See how stupid that sounds now?

oh and btw, based on entire games played, bonucci is as mediocre as the rest of our defense.

Whats with the sad lives here critisizing our best player

That guy above me showing a gif but failing to add that capitano beasted that game after this mistake.

But tben again, what do you guys expect from Bonucci alone? Without a proper coach, proper team chemistry, etc...

Expecting them to be machines without committing errors? We arent playing Fifa here..
These are humans on the field.. i know it seems weird from your television but they actually are just like you and me with pros and cons but nah... we paid 40 m i expect a machine

I didn't expect a machine.
I expected a defender at least half as good as he was at Juve / Italy NT.

Our defense concede 20 goals in 15 matches. Definitely didn't expect this.

To not acknowledge that has improved in the last 5 or so games is unfair to Bonucci, and probably shows that you are pushing an agenda and falling into the nonsensical Bonucci vs Romagnoli lovers/haters that has happened over the season. Keep up the improvement Bonucci, we need you at your best for us to do anything this season.

Oh he has improved. But he is still a shadow of his former self.

At Juve he used to be rock solid in defense and he did a lot of play making with his long passes.

But I too hope he continues to improve and we start having a defensive line up as good as their names suggest.

All I know is that I'm very happy that Bonucci is a Milan player. I think that when MBR get to know each other better and gel, they will form a great defense under Bonucci's leadership. They must!

He's been playing better lately too, slowly regaining his form & mentally recovering from a pretty bad period
