Players like Adli and CDK would've been some of the hottest names right now if they were in Benfica/Dortmund/Leipzig. Maybe Lazetic and Thiaw too.kids/fodder/filler from worse leagues? they are most definitely shit and not exciting. hell.. our most expensive signing hasn't even managed to score a goal this season, but of course that's on pioli because he doesn't use him as a RW.
The formation was there but they were just bodies.I don't have anything against 3 CB's man formation per se either but, fucking Messi ass as midfielder? Origi-Giroud upfront, with zero creativity in the mid?
And what was our plan, to defend and play on the counter with fucking Giroud? Brilliant.
The worst thing is that we didn't even defend that well, although we conceded "only" one goal, but Inter put a lot of pressure on us and easily created chances whole game (especially in the first half).
Thats 100% true & it isnt about the players.It's clearly a crisis. We can fix this mess and get back on track once we regain our confidence. I'm 100% sure of it. What we built in the past 3 years was real, it wasn't a fluke or a mirage.
A club that plays a player just not to influence his mood in a contract extension is a cuck club.So we are now even closer to losing leao after what pioli that idiot did. Sassuolo I can understand, inter not at all, considering his tactics. The guy is a joke and if we lose leao cos of pioli maldini needs to go to. Enough is enough.
Injured players once again for a chl. When will pioli learn. He said after dubai tomori and bennacer had injuries. So why play them and not allow others to play? Idiot has to go
But thats not the point. He didnt play him cos of issues rather then what was best for the team. Leao is our best attacker. How can you not play a player is made for counter attacking when thats your strategy hahaA club that plays a player just not to influence his mood in a contract extension is a cuck club.
Great news ,that means we have money . Summer will be great mercato. 100 mil.+ sales ,we will be great again.
Because other than that it was running smoothly.Is Pioli on his way to fucking up the Leao negotiation?
It's not only Kessie and Maignan. You have other leaders like Ibra, Kjaer (Florenzi), unavailable also. Giroud and Theo have been run to the ground. Rebic always injured and so many others also.Fair enough but I don't think the quality of the squad is the real issue here. At least it doesn't make sense to me because I don't think Kessie is the difference between being 1st or 2nd in the table for 2,5 years straight and such the shitshow we're witnessing since 5 weeks. We've even been up there right behind Napoli without Kessie until the WC break (well, not right behind in their necks but close enough to still hold hopes for a Scudetto fight).
When I look at our games now the team looks like it's not following Pioli anymore, they don't seem to believe in him and his instructions. I think he's loosing the team if he hasn't already, and that's very hard to fix and is a way more logical explanation to why we are playing historically bad instead of one missing player (okay, two with Maignan) compared to the team that won a Scudetto only 6 months ago.
Get him @milan
You and some others specifically mentioned the contract, in terms of the sport side I largely agree that he should play, but we must not treat him like a raw egg just because of the negotiations.But thats not the point. He didnt play him cos of issues rather then what was best for the team. Leao is our best attacker. How can you not play a player is made for counter attacking when thats your strategy haha
He will probably mistake it for his salary.
If we don't go for a top manager I highly doubt that we would sign one who doesn't speak Italian or a roman language at least.I'd do it. Not because he's the savior, but good positive football and this is our range
we can't afford a top manager
Totally agree, quality is an issue when you are drawing some games and dropping off slightly with Napoli's pass. Our quality is not an issue when you won the league 6 months earlier and now you havent won a game in 7 and have conceded massive amount of goals. You still concede from set pieces and cant string 3 passes in the biggest game of the season for 50mins?It's not only Kessie and Maignan. You have other leaders like Ibra, Kjaer (Florenzi), unavailable also. Giroud and Theo have been run to the ground. Rebic always injured and so many others also.
The management went into the season with only starting XI (an incomplete one at that) and loaded the bench with injury ridden players and a bunch of teenagers.
It's definitely the managements fault why we are at this stage, but that does not absolve Pioli who did not manage the group in an ideal way nor did he ever protest the quality of the squad at his disposal.
I never thought I would say this...but if Pep leaves Man City we need to scoop him up.
No more Pioli
No it was Junior MessiasI think you read it wrong. He’d love to coach Messi again.
Yes, just to get fired 1 week after we sell him for 50 m.Is Pioli on his way to fucking up the Leao negotiation?
Minimal backing? Maldini has backed him plenty of times already even after very heavy defeats. Pioli in return thanks that with benching Leao twice and putting Messias RCM. I have no idea why Pioli is so desperately trying to do everything wrong. This is really GP level of managing.
Good. When Tomori and Mike return that could be the best defansive option. Tomori ,Thiaw ,Kalulu. Midfield solidity is the main issue.Seeing as Pioli is here to stay what are we thinking of 3 at the back?
