I agree that ideally he should be replaced with a better and more effective RW but he?s the best we have on that wing right now. I don?t think he should be a main starter if we get someone better but be great as a super sub.

He?s not useless like Samu who really honestly needs to go, I don?t think he?s useful even a sub. Krunic on the other hand, I only want to see him as a CAM. I don?t think he can play anywhere else. But he can be useful here and there. Samu I?m afraid is the most useless player in our team right now

With that said, people love to talk about the weakness in our RW but what about our LW? Rebic/Leao has been shit for very long, Rebic has been good for small patch of 4-5 months last season and people think he?s irreplaceable? Honestly we need someone better, I?m tired of Leao/Rebic performances actually, in fact Saele has been better than both in recent times. We have to admit, our left wingers are underperforming and so has Hernandez sadly. Thankfully Hernandez finally showed up today. But his partnership with Rebic this year, is very poor, it must be said. Saele/Calabria have been better
The midfield of Krunic, Kessie and Meite was actually pretty solid against verona and the first leg against manu. One of our better games this season, weirdly enough. He's definitely not a cam in my eyes... i wonder how he would do if pioli would play him lower, as he definitely lacks the technical skills and explosiveness to play so high or on the wings

Whether you like it or not, Ibra was our missing piece of the puzzle.

He was yelling at people for pretty much the entire 90 minutes and it paid off.

It turned out we can pass and create chances from open play.

If not for our terrible finishing this could have been a 5:0.

Another sign that this team is mentally in the edge. If the team had at least some confidence, we would have buried those chances.

Hakan used to be a midfielder that joined the front 3, but now he's a second striker who occasionally tracks back to help the midfielders. That's why even a player as mediocre as Krunic made us look unusually solid against ManU and Verona. We need that 3rd midfielder.
We can't have Kessie and Bennacer outnumbered all the time - especially with Bennacer in this shape, and Kessie often being forced out of position due to Theo. This is the source of many if not not most of our defensive issues.
Exactly.. our main problem is the lack of defensive cohesion which starts from the attacking end.. it seems to me that the ones in attack are all on an ego trip.. Ibra, Rebic, Hakan, Leao.. all of these guys want the ball constantly at their feet and when they lose it they sulk and trot around expecting the backing to retrieve it and give them another chance.

I remember that when the team actually started looking promising (a few weeks after the Atalanta thrashing) the main thing going for us was our defensive solidity and we went through many games on clean sheets. We were solid defensively and we broke out quickly with well taken counter attacks.. now the ball advances too slowly.. we defend too deep and instead of having our 3 offensive mids in defensive duties they are closer to Ibra than Kessie and Bennacer. And when we win the ball (often through a sloppy clearance) those players are not in position to receive the ball and push it forward so it's recycled from the back. I even remember how happy I was during the good period that Donnarumma hardly had a part in the build up, and Kessie and Bennacer often made themselves available.

Even if he's getting fucked off and screaming, we are shit without him.

It is a simple fact. We are tepid and have absolutely no build up play without him.

Could only watch the highlights for this one, but I’m so glad we got the 3 points.

12 points left to grab, Forza!

But he's the one who missed nearly all of those sitters.

Perhaps we should sign a player who can shout at and blame Ibra every time he misses a sitter or misplaces a pass?

3 points and clean sheet

Excellent game by Romagnoli

Ibrahimovic should've scored at least once, but he played joga bonito

Tonali > Bennacer

I'm starting to like Dalot, now he's our best fullback

Different style

Tonali now is better for us, less confusing and quicker at passing

He also holds better the position

It'll be good to win as it'll put Juventus 3 behind us with them needing to play Inter before we play Atalanta.

Then again, everyone was acting like all of the top teams bar us would win every match left and Atalanta drew to Roma and yesterday, Juventus drew to Fiorentina and should have drawn to Udinese and Napoli drew to Cagliari.
