I think the kids need to understand how the old guard talks.
Ppl like Wild and myself tend to use superlatives in our discussion.
So if Wild says "we're mid table" it doesn't literally mean that we are dead in the centre of the league standings.

It means we're in the middle or not quite a top tier team.
This is correct, as we 1) don't have many titles of late 2) lose our good players 3)penny pinch in the mercato 4)aren't among the truly feared teams in Europe.

He doesn't think we're shit.....in today's ultra sensitive era I think this needs to be explained :D
Not really Caribbean but describes it perfectly.

If he had surgery I would assume it's a fairly serious tear. I wouldn't expect him back in 30 days.

Please let Pelligri land us Bremer
technically Leo Duarte is still ours and on loan in turkey, we can always recall him back :lol:

Or "I like Pioli as a coach", and you're immediately a naive fanboy who doesn't know what real football looks like. Well...

So what make you a better fan :
1-saying that Milan is an elite team & Pioli is shit.
2-saying Milan is a midtable team & Pioli is the shit.

If Giampaolo didn't fuck up our team, that squad was good enough for a top four finish, as shown with Pioli in the second half of that season.

Without Zlatan, we wouldn't have finished top 4. His return on the field was incredible. Kessie and other players definitely grew since he came and changed their mentality. Tonali probably would've been let go by now too.
Yes no one disagrees with that.
But in 2021/22 season, we can do without Zlatan.. as proven in the first 2 months with rebic as CF
