he's been regressing for the last 4-5 years, and he wasn't that good to begin with.

So Mertens is the new Milito huh? Guy got skinned alive. Atleast Calabria crosses like Cafu.

It's always been a sign of the overall quality of the squad that Abate has been a guaranteed starter for the better part of a decade.

Nice assist last week, but what an absolute horror show today.

Had one good season, and never built up on it. All the bad traits of Meelan(aka. Milan 2012-2016) have been ingrained in his skull. He's obviously on borrowed time before we splash the China money next season.

Abate gets a lot of hate, especially when he is by far our best right back.

Mertens is on fire, difficult to hate on Abate for that, and especially after he started well this season.

Abate has always been a strong fast player who can defend well. His passing and crossing (attacking play) lacks and is bad, but he has still been making assists.

He can run all day long, gets forward and defends and gives his best for the team.

Only one game against Barca and Madrid, do I remember messi getting the better of him which lead to a goal at the back post when messi made an assist.

Yes thats years ago, but against Ronaldo and Messi then, he was great.

He has been making more assists over the past few years and still defending well.
Against Napoli the defence all had a horrible time. So pick up Abate?

Not a crazy concern to replace, but if we can after fixing the mid and CB, yes.

Can we all appreciate the shit that he is, and I'm not talking about the goal. Haven't seen any player as clueless with the ball as this guy.

The craziest thing is that 99% of this forum is completely fed up with DeSciglio (deservedly) but kept hailing how important and great Abate is.:fp:
That defending is what I expect from Calabria or a youngster not Abate.

I forgot which game this season, but there was a moment where Abate looked at the linesman to complain while the ball was in an extremely dangerous position. That to me shows his mental weakness, looking for a scapegoat instead of focusing on his job.

Abate had a good run of form every once in a while when his crosses actual connect. Besides that though, Montella needs to give someone else his place.

Watching Montolivo hand over the arm band to him made me vomit.

Drop him into the molten core of the Earth, let alone the bench.

Calabria is simply superior. Sure, Abate can sometimes be solid defensively, but he's been an open gate since 2011, and he contributes close to nothing offensively. At least Calabria can cross well and link up.

I feel like last year when players were getting cut due to performing poorly. Paletta has entrenched himself. Antonelli has dropped himself. Abate should drop himself. Montolivo is now competing with Locatelli. The front 3 have been decided. Much like NDJ, Diego Lopez and others being dropped last year.

Guilty for goal, and then for second but luckly that man played with his hand. Horrible defending, AGAIN. When he plays you just count goal for opponents. We start on -1.

No need for him. Play Calabria... complete trash again today.

I don't understand why Calabria was dropped to be honest, we kept 3 clean sheets in a row and he was good in two of them. Abate cannot be a starter in this team anymore. Calabria has to start and tonight proved that. Wtf was he doing on that first goal?

Third best paid RB in Italy.
