Vulture please tell me your honest opinion on Leao today. I dont need your opinion on how the whole squad was shit, I want it about the individual performance of Rafael Alexandre Conceicao Leao.

Milan really to get another striker Leao is not good enough. And Zlatan only plays half the games.

Donyel Malen would be nice...

Imagine conceding the title with over 10 games remaining, to a side that finished bottom of the UCL group containing shakhtar and munchengladbak

Massive point today.

Verona A, napoli H, Viola A- without ibra and likely hakan

We might be pushed right back into the top 4 battle. Verona are a very good team at their ground

i dont even blame the team too much
so much rotation over and over again
how many times leao played against parking bus teams in serieA??
how many rebic-leao played together
how many rebic-leao-diaz as acm?? and add on top samu on right and again late pioli sub samu<>saele...
kalulu didnt show much in attack except bad crosses but what can you do next to samu??

i said season is over when benna with tears was walking from the pitch
and team still manage to deliver results but all became more shaky.

Invest heavily in new Milan Lab, new doctors. Every season we are fucked with injuries.

New young proven striker is needed. Belotti would be a dream.

Give me 1 reason why we shouldn't see Leao if anyone comes with a nice offer for him

Once there was a time when one brainfart from Dida vs Leeds was enough to lock the world class tier from him. And Dollar has made so many fuck ups already, yet him and his greedy fuck agent keep wanting more and more.

Vulture. j/k there's none. Instead of letting Hauge grow, who has much better ethics and creativity in attack, we keep playing this lazy ass who will keep shining for 5 minutes and then going sfa.

I think you the only poster besides myself who has commented on his performance. Everyone is looking at Leao but this is the moment that cost us the match.

Leao doesn't really fit into this team. His best position is support striker in a 2 striker formation. That position doesn't exist in Pioli's 4-3-2-1.

It would be better to have a proper goal scoring striker instead. And another left winger compete with Rebic for the LW spot.

Zlatan can only play half the season minutes ( maybe less). Milan definitelyy need another striker

Yup.
We have one major problem and it's the never-ending injuries. The rest are symptoms of it. Can't expect a fast passing tempo or quick 1-2s that break through parked buses when the players are unfamiliar with eachother, and none of our attackers are used to being the lead striker.

I'm sure even the players that started the Udinese game could make serious progress within weeks if they were allowed continuity, but it didn't even take one hour before Tonali had to be replaced to due an injury concern.

Can't expect consistency in performances when there isn't a consistency in lineups.

All i ask is one season of functional football like 2012 then i wont ask anything for 10 years

2012?
The first half when AC Ibra lost the Scudetto to Drawventus?
Or the second half when the team had some rough first months of life after Ibra, Silva and the senatores?

That performance traumatised me tbh- it was so so bad. I hope we react vs verona and get a win. If Ibra and Hakan dont come back soon we are in trouble. Atalanta and roma are bearing down on us

Im scared of not finishing in the top 4.... someone slap me out of it

I shit myself every time we have a bad performance like this. Its so worrying how reliant we are on Ibra. At the end of the season we need to do our best to get a target man

We suck at creating opportunities against tight defenses. We don't have coordinated, intelligent movement/runs, we can't thread the difficult pass in the final third, and we can't beat our man 1v1.

We are at our best when we win the ball high up the pitch with our pressing against a team that's actually willing to attack, and counterattack quickly. That's it.
