I think this might be a tousand year old prophecy predicting the coming of a hero that will lead his people and save them after years of suffering.
It is actually a Byzantine coin depicting the emperor Herakleios. He fought many battles against the Persians and the Arabs, with varying success, but ultimately lost a big part of his empire.
I like your story better ;-)

No, it's Adaloald, the Lombardian king.

This is Herakleios

It was coined by Adalwald indeed but depicts Herakleios as the nominal ruler

We can underline a fact concerning Sandro Tonali. The Rossoneri midfielder was the fastest player on the pitch in the derby with a peak of speed reached at 33.66 km / h.

We have two good players with the ball, Tonali and Bennacer, we about to get one more Adli, Pioli needs to focus more on the midfield. For sure, Brahim Diaz isn't the man to articulate Milan's attacking game.

Bennacer is not good with the ball. Slow with the ball, he makes а lot of touches and at the end most of the passes ahead are wrong.

This season maybe, coz injuries fucked him up. Last season he was very good.

I feel when fit Sandro should always be playing, very good on the ball and very physical which is also good. I feel he could be a main stay for years to come, someone we could build the midfield around. I feel he gives you much more on and off the ball than Bennacer.

I think both of them are good, but different and complementary. Benny has been out of form, but if he regains it, they will be a great duo to build upon

Bennacer is good with the quick short passes, kind of in the Spanish Xavi mould. Tonali is better at the long ball, and he plays the forward pass, sort of like Scholes. I'd like to see them play more together, with Kesdie and a threatening AM ahead of them

The only nice thing going on right now at Milan, is Tonali.

This guy... :proud: I think he will go through his whole career being underappreciated.

I remember someone calling him a Gattuso with better feet, but he's so much more than that. First of all, he's a hundred times better than Rino with the ball, so that comparison falls right away IMO. He does have the grinta but he's very technically gifted.

He's very allrounded and should work more on becoming a true box2box player - meaning, he must become better in the attacking department. More goals, more assists, more hockey assists. Hopefully this is in the trajectory of his development.

I doubt that, he was already super hyped while playing in Serie B... with more CL exposure, he'll get to be known.

"known" is not the level I'm talking about.

Yeah, I agree. Hopefully he adds to his game. You can literally see him channeling Rino here. Unbelievable he's only 21 😘

In the derby, we were lucky that after Girouds perfectly legitimate interception on Sanchez, the ball fell to Tonali's feet. Since he picked out the correct pass at the correct time. I am sure that any other player would have messed up that counter attack with an overhit pass or a bad choice.

This is why between the three: Tonali, Bennacer and Kessie, the most advanced one should be Tonali, because his skills and his intelligence is the most suited for AM. Thankfully, we don't need to think much about old Franck, but if the situation came about, then that's the better option.

We were also lucky that Diaz fucked it just enough for it to fall to Giroud :lol:

this guy went from being very good at the beginning of the season , he become below average in the second half, i hope he is not the kind of players that let the hype get into him, and he doesn't work hard unless he is criticized.
