He's playing out of position. When we put him on, it's usually to fill up the numbers and stay compact.

I don't find him excellent or anything, but I still think he was a good value for money signing at €8m. He has maintained his resale value and is more or less an OK back-up in Serie A.

When Leao wasn?t playing much? Lol, do you watch Milan? Leao has been active this season, also giving a lot of good crosses and passes to Ibra and other players.

You are a biased Leao hater that can’t accept that he is technically better than others attackers we have.

Yes I understand - it just seems like a waste because he does little and limits others from having experience

Told you we needed Samu, I don?t like him but his characteristics were necessary for this game.

As for Krunic he is useless in any game.

The problem with Gabbia on the goal is that he's deployed as a LCB, but unfortunately he's not left-footed. Hence why it took him a second longer to turn and obtain a better angle to pass it out.

He then got caught up in Lille's high press which forced him to make a sloppy pass out to the throw in which eventually lead to the equalizer.

Aside from the mistake, I thought he had a really good game. Kept Yazici at bay until he was substituted. A reliable 4th choice option.

I think this game shows we really dont have a good bench, we have good ibra, dollar, rebic, kajer, theo, benacer and kessi.

Okish calabria, gabbia, leao, hauge hakan, diaz and somehow sales.

And the rest are just not good enough to play in seria b clubs, if we really want to compete this year we need a rw, dm, cb and cf because anyone injured from the good players we are really screwed.
+1000

We are a paper thin squad when it comes to quality. Extremely paper thin. Once we miss a player or 2 our quality drops because a lot of our subs are terrible players for a team our caliber

Ok game with kids like hauge, colombo, dalot, tonali, gabbia... point is ok, no injuries!

Dalot cant defend... Gabbia is a solid talent, Hauge looked scared, Tonali also looks like hes not free in his head...

Its ok. Now Viola and thats important!

One of the "downsides" (note the "" pls) of having iBra is that the growth of the younger players wouldn't be as rapid. Of course this would be compensated for by iBra's production.

Leao and Hague have a lot more shit games to get out of their system before they're legit stars.

Wanted to win today. Always felt the result at the San Siro was somewhat unfair.

Bennacer is such a pleasure to watch. Tonali was careless at times, but that pass was awesome. Really like the kid and excited for his growth.

Dalot was meh, Calha not the one we are used to seeing in recent weeks.

On the contrary to what some have posted here, I think today’s game proved that we have options. Players got rest and we got a decent result. We don’t have enough depth to negotiate a season of CL and Serie A, but we can do ok until Jan in the two competitions we are taking seriously.

We have a limited budget, and we’re growing. I don’t expect miracles and infallibility.

+1, absolutely my opinion..

also, dont forget that this lille is 2nd in french league and could be compared to napoli/inter/atalanta in power level.

if you look at it neutrally this match couldve gone either way (but chances of us winning it were higher) - and now imagine leao or ibra (unlucky that both are out atm).

so even our secondary squad is able to compete with strong opponents (not real madrid strong but strong enough to compete with other top 4 contenders in serie a)

for me this match was a huge positive.. ofc we still need to get a lot more depth come winter, but until then we can surely manage like this in serie a and EL

Gabbia vs Lille:

6 tackles
2 blocks
5 aerials won
103 passes

If he didn’t make that dumb mistake he could easily have been the player I would see as man of the match. He was winning more defensive duels than in other games and than Kjaer, but the kid didn’t help himself with some dumb passes.

This game will serve for improvement, let the kid grow.

Conceded one goal against a really good team and they honestly didn’t have many dangerous chances. You can only say they should/could have scored one additional goal off of Tonali’s mistake.

Lille put us under constant pressure the entire match and we didn’t have our reference point up top in Ibra or Leao. I think we have to give Lille credit and our squad as well. Our two best players- Kessie and Ibra- did not play and we were missing Romagnoli and Calabria.

Personally, I think it was a good performance under the circumstances and that should prove a valuable point in seeing us through to the KO round.

El Shaarawy exploded after Ibra left, so it can happen with others but for now we need Ibra.

Romagnoli wasn't missed, but I was thinking about Calabria. I think we'd have done much better with him.

I think that Lille is likely the most organised team we played against this season. Better organised than Inter .
So considering that we played without Ibra , Kessie ,Leao - I find this result not a bad one.

Did the statistics reflect the game? (e.g. 13 - 4 shots to Lille)

Tonali besides the great through pass has some serious positional issues... when he goes and closes down an opposition he often leaves a huge gap that lillle exposed immediately.... that’s why we appeared to be back tracking so often after he misplaced a pass or makes an attempt to follow an opponent in wide areas. He needs to coordinate better with his nearest teammates on this.

Rebic so obviously played out of position and you can see his instinct was to stray to wide positions to receive the ball.... leaving us with no proper no9 in the box, hence our lack of meaningful possession in danger areas. We had no one to do effective hold up play.

Hakan was poor and looked void of ideas and inspiration...
With all the hype surrounding him in recent months post Covid, we needed him to step up here. I watched glimpses of the Turkey vs Hungary match and he was also poor... with matches coming thick and fast this is alarming.

The rest did fine without truly impressing... if had to choose maybe Theo had a more effective game.
