I think its a crime to bench Bona

So many formations but it seems that we will have to bench good players as well..it tough to choose who should play

4-3-3 (the only formation that we can play all of our good players attacking-wise)
4-3-2-1
3-4-2-1

Best formation now is 4312 no other choice
All formation with single forward doesn't fit us now. We have Kalinic, Silva, Cutrone and Suso able to play. Borini is always last last choice. So we have to at least play two forward. AM Cahanoglu LCM Bonaventura RCM Kessie DM Biglia. Currently best choice. LB Rodriguez RB Conti (now we have to play Abate) DF Musacchio Bonucci (Romagnoli as first backup.)

Like this?

Kalinic - Suso/Silva
Hakan
Bona - Biglia - Kessie
RR - Romag - Bon - Abate
Dolla


With Suso and RR it will inevitably end up like the 4-3-3/3-4-3 of last season, with RR(previously DES) as the LB/LCB, Bona as LCM/LM and Hakan as LW/CAM. That outcome won't necessarily turn out bad, but isn't this the system most of you absolutely couldn't stand?

With two actual CFs it will be a shitshow with close to zero wide defensive support for FBs and a lightweight midfield-three appearing even weaker.

I go back to my point earlier, Milan had a great mercato in defence and midfield, but their spend in attack was very confused.

Milan spend allured 80m on Silva, Kalinic and Hakan to add to Suso, Bona and Cutrone. Thats a lot of money, so it wasn't a lack of funds. What I can't understand is what was the plan? The only formations that make sense based on the transfers are 3-4-1-2 or a 3-4-2-1, but did Milan buy wisely in attack to suit these formations?

For 3-4-2-1 to work, it requires a world class, physical monster upfront who can hold up the ball and create a nuisance for the opposing defence. Someone like a Costa or a Drogba. Neither Silva nor Kalinic have that kind of presence.

IMO 3-4-1-2 is a bit dated formation, and the only way it works is if you have a world class fantasista or creative forward, someone like Dybala or Baggio or Kaka. Suso ain't that. If Milan were planning this, they should have focussed most of their spend to get a player like that. Maybe Sanchez could have worked.

Buying a pure centre forward like Kalinic only makes sense if you have good wingers in a 3-4-3 or 4-2-3-1 kind of formation. Milan didn't buy those either, even though there were many quality players on the market like Salah, Bernardeschi, Mahrez, etc.

While I think F&M bought very well in defence and midfield where its clear what roles each new player is supposed to have, the attack is very confused and the money could have been spent better. Its not that the players are bad, its just that the players do not suit any of the systems Milan can deploy.

Just my two cents worth.

Just try a 3-4-3. Thats the best formation we can hope for at this point conisdering our colossal fuckup to get a top CF and LW and blowing all our cash on a CB that was not needed(regardless of how 'WC' he is) and a youth prospect.

Hakan - Kalinic - Suso

RR - Biglia - Kessie - Abate/Calabria

Roma - Bonucci - Musacchio

Donnarumma

Are the wings slow? yep they are. But we arent exactly blessed with quick players in the squad (sold or let go of the few that we had). The sales of Niang and Kucka (heck, even Berto) without getting proper replacements looks even more ******ed at this point.

I mean we have three fucking midfielders who can only play at CDM (mediocre anywhere else). Not to mention no LWB despite buying a RWB and Bonucci (who apparently can only fuckin excel in a 3 CB formation with ultra protection). Kept a couple of useless fodders such as Mauri who contribute absolutely nothing. And yeah, on top of that we play in 3 competitions - go figure.

But nope, according to some we have had a 10/10 mercato because apparently buying a bunch of players (regardless of whether they suit us or not) equals to a perfect mercato.

This is why I was so desperate to get Aubameyang. They tried to get Kalinic to play off the edge of the defender's shoulder but he just couldn't get away. A rocket like Aubameyang would have had a better chance as well as the knock on effect of making more space for the SS.

Having a genuine world class forward makes a world of difference (obvious I know). There's nobody on our team with this kind of pace...and having lost both Niang and Deulofeu we needed someone to with speed in the attack to break up defensive lines like we saw yesterday.

You can have a team without fast players like the Juventus that won the scudetto with 0 fast players other than Needed....but then you need to have a level of quality in midfield that we simply don't have
