Zanioli didn’t do much in Serie A either. If Maldini got denied a budget to sign him I can only say well done to whoever saved us.
You really suck the RedBurd tip huh... Or is it just an anti-maldini thing?

We DONT know what Maldini might or might not have planned... Don't be so naive bro ✌️

I don’t have any particular feeling on this “potential” signing…indifferent, never impressed me. but it is the only kind of signing that can save Pioli from himself.
A veteran star player with a status 10x bigger than Pioli, like Ibra. to whom he can’t really say shit. Who will go on the field and imprint the game with some logical things in buildup. Effectively ignoring the “dribble in the middle”.
Not only Playing the game the right way, but leading and even instructing the younger ones to do the same. A sort of on field coach…again, like Ibra was.
A DM/CM of that profile would have even more impact.

All these young talents, especially midfielders, you bring them here, within 3-6 months, they’ll become Pioli midfielders, 1 dimensional dribbling machines. Trying to bulldoze their way from box to box 95% of the time when they get the ball.

Müller is a glorified Nocerino, he is ok but he is declining and profits a lot from playing in Bayern imo.
I don‘t like him and also think he is very overrated, but I mean yeah on a free transfer he is probably ok.

I like current management, I was kinda neutral on Maldini but my opinion of him as an official has taken a hit from that bitchy interview and even with taking into account the many good things Maldini did his late transfers were very meh.

i dont believe that rumor but muller is a cool dude who's won a lot, woulda take him for the vibes and mentality alone
He's actually a player I can see being a successful number 10 in serie a. Though I haven't watched him recently and don't know if he still has it.

too many great players to list but if pushed all time favorite player: Maldini
RedBird take the Arab money to pay back Elliot then take a smaller piece of the pie and move on?

Quick turn around, very quick if true... Anyone else find it all s but fishy?

If it happens, it makes sense why Elliott kept a stake, they're laughing all the way to the bank... Might everyone take a slice and ae has been mentioned, "add to their portfolios?

Let's get the stadium over the line please before more upheaval and reshuffling.

With Padre likely away in the summer, new owners and management isnt a great thing after the summer there.

I'm pretty chill, it'll go how it goes... We can certainly thank Elliott and Paolo for getting Milan to a far better place than they were; we can all agree on that surely lol?
Always RedBird’s plan get the go ahead for the stadium over the line. Sell Milan and move on.

We made our name as serial CL winners. Because of those expectations of winning the competition are higher that only Real Bayern and Liverpool fans will only understand. Any other competition just doesn't have the same pull and feel to it. And the league is the league. If you're ahead of Ladri and Inter then 99.9% of the time you win the league.

Also Thursday night football is shit and you are a terrorist for wanting to win it. Why you calling me a terrorist for? Because it fucks the fixtures up. No one likes playing a schedule of Thursday Sunday Thursday Monday Thursday. Which in turns fucks our chances in the league of getting as high as possible.

If you want to win Thursday Nights so badly go support Sevilla.
Lol, expected some mixed reactions, but never would I have guessed that I would be called a terrorist for wanting to win EL :lol:

By the way, what is the difference between playing on Tuesday/Wednesday-Saturday/Sunday and Thursday-Sunday/Monday? Basicly the same fixture for CL and EL. Only difference is 1 more round in EL.

Fuck Sevilla, I don't give a shit about them. I am a terrorist for wanting to win the EL. Quick question, are you supporting Newcastle against us next Wednesday? Because lets face it, it is not likely that Dortmund will beat PSG in the last game. So you want us to loose? Is that a "hardcore fan"???

So why are people so happy and enthusiastic to back them over actual club legends and obvious owners who aren't actually interested in sporting success... They simply want a return on their investment?

They've been.seen to be naive and inexperienced in what's all needed Tomo e a sleeping giant like Milan forward.

Maybe it'll be good riddance, but I thought we'd have them till the stadium was built and we'd have won another couple championships.

Let's see what comes out in the wash I guess.

More so until the new stadium is approved. Not necessarily when construction is complete.

He's exactly what we need in terms of mentality and especially seniority, and I don't mean it in a negative way. Also very grounded dude, always respectful with fans. Also also pure meme material, one of the funniest guys in the business.

I can’t be certain but it was my suspicion regarding RedBird from the beginning I think they are very much a portfolio company. I could be wrong.

You know where I stand on the Maldini discussion, I really do not want to reignite that discussion. Milan need to focus on what is happening on the field of play right now.

As you say let’s see what transpires and where certain decisions take this Milan.

I want what's in the best interest of Milan. Them wanting a return on their investment means Milan needs to be successful both on the sporting side as in the books.

For example, Inter is successful on the pitch which makes their fans happy and our fans envious, obviously so. But I'll believe them getting a serious buyer when I see it. As of now, that club is in such a financial disorder with all their humongous debts and their owners being in legal trouble in almost every major county that serious buyers seem to lurk until shit is going down so they can get the club on a cutting price, restructuring the whole club in the process and basically do the same thing Elliott did.

I'm not particularly fond of Elliott or RedBird. To me, they are means to get to sporting success as Milan is their mean to get a return to their investment. I cheer for them because them being successful means consequentially we're successfull too.

As Furlani said the other day when asked if the management prefers to earn money over winning a Scudetto: "Winning the Scudetto makes earning money easier."

Maldini giving that interview the last day, while it was his right to give it an in his best interest, wasn't in our best interest as a club. I couldn't give less fucks about Gerry being called out. But I don't just sit there and clap frenetically in my hands when I see someone doing damage to my beloved club, no matter if it's a douchebag like Mirabelli or a beloved club legend like Maldini.

Mind you, even Maldinis former teammates Costscurta and Galli called him out for the timing (not for the content), and especially Billy is usually quite critical himself about the Milan management. That's quite telling IMO.
