Honestly, I don't give a fuck about EL. Focus on Serie A and top 4.

With our roster and many injuries, I don't think that we're able to play successfully in all tournaments... and if I need to choose, Coppa and Serie A should be priority.

As Pioli and the players have said, every game is a final (except Prague when already qualified ofc) so each competition will be treated that way. January reinforcements will dictate whether that ends up being a good idea or could cost us in the league depending on if anyone is brought in, or who is.

Bring Papu if Hakan does not want to renew for 5M.
This will add experience on Mid for 2 years and work in parallel to make Hauge ready for that role.
Papu seems on his way out from Atalanta...

Group training for #Ibrahimovic but it will be decided tomorrow whether he will take part in the race with the #Genoa .#Kjaer still personalized. Recover #Saelemaekers .

Btw, what do you guys think of "The Panther Era"? Or "Fino Alla Morte"?

I dont think Thauvin would/will have as much impact as people expect him to. Yes, he's a decent player but he's not as explosive and fast as Leao, Theo etc

Here's the thing, he doesn't have to be.

Our team is very unbalanced right now. Theo is an elite attacking LB, and Rebic/Leao/Hauge are all very strong, which makes us far more predictable than is ideal. Thauvin would be a pretty significant upgrade at RW, which would make our attack much more difficult to predict.

Decisive meeting on Wednesday between Milan and Hakan Calhanoglu's agent.

It remains to be understood whether Milan will raise the renewal offer, which currently includes a net 3.5 million plus bonuses. There could be an understanding at 4-4.5M.

very good match-ups in EL draw, half of the stronger teams will be eliminated.

Imagine us ending up in 2nd and have to face Ajax, our player will be gassed.

well i also think management may be more open for spending
because, if we not fail against yugos, we gonna play at least 4 games in el = some money incoming.

Talks of Papu Gomez to Milan in January.

Would be one hell of a signing, but I'm not too sure if Gazidis would approve.

+ Thauvin on the right and we might talk Scudetto AND EL contenders.

We don't need that much pace any more. We have enough fast players. Also Calabria is pretty fast and actually decent in attack, so he should click well with a skillful and intelligent player.

What we need though is a RW who can score 6-7 goals and give 3-4 assists in half a season. None of Alexis or Samu can do it. Also having Zlatan as target man for Thauvin's crosses sounds like a match made in heaven.

I haven't watched him for years, but when I did he looked pretty good. It would be low risk high reward deal. 2-3 m to Marseille and 3 m for wages. Sounds like a dream deal. Even if he flops, we would still be able to sell him for 10-15 m.

There is actually 0 pace on the right side. Unless we try Kalulu.
