Does anyone actually enjoy watching this Milan play?

We play 30 minutes against a 10 men Lazio and they actually create more on counter attacks than us.

It's both shocking and embarrassing.

Enough with Pioli.

Its hard to watch our constant bad positioning, the slow motion passing, low movimentation, the huge lack of volume in our game, the defensive system its a tragedy.

We won't know until we try, but he will bring new ideas. Pioli's ideas has been found out by 50% of the serie a teams. He can blame the players if he wants , but the squad is good enough to comfortable be in top 4 and he barely made it thx to juve's deducted points.
He seems to know how to score more that the other coach in most games

I still didnt figure out what was his plan against Fiorentina yesterday, too many players always out of position. It was confusing. Thank God we have Leão.

Capello, Sacchi and Ancellotti were all far better than Pioli. The football the team has played at times under Pioli has been unwatchable.

Points totals are irrelevant for me if you do not win scudettos/CL titles.

see? they still don't get the concept behind outscoring the opponent

We suffered 34 goals, 20 more than the first and 10 goals more than the 3rd. Not gonna even mention the games we should and we fail to win. Thank God for Leão and Theo.

I dont put Sacchi in the top 2, coz he never really got to faced the british, specially Liverpool at his time.

Capello
Carlo
Sacchi

And Pioli extract very little from the squad he currently had. Even Allegri with a midfield of Poli, Muntari and De Jong take us to the CL.
Pioli should have had won the last 3 scudettos.

People saying how great our squad is and how we are underperforming, is incredible! Yet, our captain can't even feature on the bench of a very poor Italian national team!

That doesn't mean much, take Rossi for example.

I dont know, 2013?!?! :lol:
2013?
That was when Allegri reached CL with Montolivo, Ambro, Muntari & Flamini as the main guys in the midfield. Some would say also El Sha and KPB, since they were more like wing-backs or wide midfielders.
Not Poli or De Jong, who got injured right before the team turned it around after a disastrous start.

With Poli and De Jong, in the following season, he got fired half-way into it when the team was sitting at 11th, only a few points above relegation zone.

I can't expect much from my memories, but still Ambro, Muntari, Nocerino and Flamini and still making to the CL, kinda reinforce my point here.

Roma need to be 15 behind and atalanta 16 for that. Both need to stumble ...

Don't worry, you can follow him to whatever mid table club he manages next season. 👍
