I think I’ve gained the perspective that comes with fatherhood and loss.

I’ve lived through a Milan down cycle, and while I was in it with you all it felt like an eternity of misery. Now, I know it’s ending. The talk all season was about Milan “choking,” but here we are with a title completely in our own control not because others stumbled… But because this squad hasn’t lost since January, because the only reason it isn’t 23 unbeaten right now is the fucking corrupt refs in Serie A.

I know this squad is going to win significant trophies, because I’ve already seen they have the character to do it under the pressure.

We will win the title tomorrow, and a lot more in the years to come.

Anyone in Milan for the game? Too bad there will be no organised screening, and there will be probably a blockade in Reggio Emilia to avoid many people outside the stadium...

I haven’t envisioned a scenario where we lose. So if we lose, the pain would be unspeakable

I wish so bad I could have travelled to Italy to see the match, 10 more hours to go, at least by being at home I can drink from my luck-mug

As much as I think we play better overall with Rebic, I think it makes sense to start with Giroud.

The overall pattern of the game should be that we dominate early and try as much as possible to get a goal or two. That means crosses, and lots of time inside their area.

If things go well and we're ahead sometime early in the second half, bring on Rebic for Giroud. There'll be more space with Sass forced to attack.

If Rebic starts, he might struggle with the lack of space early on and get frustrated. Starting Giroud is the safer option and it makes sense to play it safe today seeing as how we only need a draw. We have a LOT of weapons to throw at the game if things aren't going our way. Rebic, Ibra, Messias, Brahim should all come on at some point if we're looking for a goal.
