I threw things at the wall in sullen frustration last game.

As I've said the last 5 games. We have to win this!

so gattuso would rather play mauri, BERTOLACCI and now CALABRIA in midfield before montolivo because he fell out with him.


0 sympathy from me when he ends up getting sacked.

Yeah, it's the one thing I really don't like about Rino as coach. It's just being mindlessly stupid, something not even Seedorf would do.
It's not just the un-classy, un-Milanesque treatment of a former captain, he's also hurting himself by not using the by far best anchor available.
Baka and Kessie can't control a game like him, which is why not even the home games to minnows are a given anymore. Mauri is not Serie A material. Berto is hardly a footballer when Gasperini is not there to optimize everything for him.

last season towards the end he played monto for a few matches where he outperformed locatelli, then he ends up benching monto and playing locatelli who had a shit performance against juve in the cup final. (good thing he repaid gattuso's faith in him and stayed in milan)

is montolivo a good player? no. Has he shown questionable (soft af) mentality before? yes.

he's still a fucking anchor who gets offers from 1st division clubs, mauri wouldnt start for the reserves in my local club ffs.

bertolacci isn't a football player, this dude is the biggest fraud in history of sports, by far galliani's biggest financial mistake.

I would start a fan from the san siro who plays in midfield with his friends before bertolacci.

Not sure about Calabria at LM, but seems like he would good LWB for sure. He's good at getting forward and could be useful to Suso overlapping. He can also track back since he's good defensively.

Calabria will surprise people, I think. I expect an Abate CB kind of performance. He is a decent passer, and he's probably got one of the better staminas in the squad.

Forza Davide!

Do not show yourself as a 6th place team. We do not accept that kind of position - Paolo Maldini -

While I think Rino should utilise his players to the best of their abilities, with how Monto has been rather ... problematic in the past, there may be things behind the scenes which make Rino not start him.

Not saying it's true, but we don't know fully what is going on.

Would not surprise me if that's a 5-1-4.

Excellent team. Best I've ever seen

It may be a master move to let Conti fully, fully heal before he plays. It's bonkers that he hasn't played since september 2017.

Forza!!!!

I don't think that formation is all that weird. Calabria has the tools to play mezz'ala adequately ok. Hakan has never let us down in terms of effort - he always tracks back and goes in for the tackles. If anything, I'm more worried about Jose Mauri's potential errors than the other two.
