Yeah , but that is how we have been implementing our high pressure.
One of our CDs press high & the other CD cover the space.
Nothing new , it used to work & now its stalling.
Let me give you an example by Sassoulo's first goal
Salemakers had the ball on the right, Theo decided to advance and join the attack
Salemkaers lost the ball and it was played to Berrardi here all alone, who was covering Theo?
and if Berrardi slipped or failed to control this ball, does it mean that Milan's high pressure was working?
for a coach, Pioli should watch the games again and talk to each player about his mistakes but they keep on happening
it used to work when opponents feared Milan like they fear Napoli now
Napoli won against Milan 2-1 and lost against Inter 1-0, they are not that far from both teams 1 on 1
but they scare most of the teams, they can afford to do mistakes against Sassulo and Lecce and Cremonese
however Milan doing this bad shouldn't allow those teams to score, because once they do they believe they can win
Milan against Inter, Torino, Tottenham and Monza didn't use high pressure and it was going okay then Pioli went back to using it against Atalanta
against Fiorentina they didn't use it to score, that had a chance and it was saved
but the PK happened because Thiaw didn't cover Tomori, if Tomori didn't do this mistake the Fiorentina player would've beaten Thiaw as he was balanced and 100% able to dribble or score
if Thiaw went early to support Tomori, he would've easily cut the ball because then Fiorentina's player wasn't balanced as he just got rid of Tomori.
