This is crazy! Goes on to show who we've been relying on for the last few years.

It really is weird though. Not sure if this is due to wage demands. If it is, they gotta get back ti reality and realize they are bottom table level players, and those make about 200,300k at best.
Tbf, Abate could easily find jobs on US, he's one of the last champion from 2010-2011.

Montolivo and Bertolacci on the other hand..

He could also be taken by some small Serie A club, his experience would be welcome in these clubs I think.
Montolivo, if football still interests him, could also play in some small Serie A club ...
Mauri should try to relaunch his "career" in his country or try it in Serie B as he is still young.
Bertolacci is the biggest question. The guy has never done anything good in Milan for years.

Just looked for news about these guys :
- Montolivo is thinking about retiring, nothing official
- Bertolacci has some clubs interested (Torino ?)
- Abate was linked with Brescia
- José Mauri has some clubs interested (Bologna, Leganes, Alaves, PAOK, Fenerbahce, Al Hilal)

Abate was actually a decent performer compared to those parasites.
Balotelli, Matri and Abate in Brescia could be fun Big Grin
Brescia would become our retirement squad ...
I agree on Abate. He was a good "servant" to the club. Never world class, but he definitely had world class displays here and there. He definitely can be useful to many sides in Serie A...even some at the top half of the table as he showed his versatility last season even at his age.

Montolivo ruined himself to be honest. Yes, Gattuso totally removed him from the squad....but he did have offers a year and 2 years ago. He just chose to collect his fat salary and not go anywhere else despite everything. Can't blame him for seeing out the contract he was given by the club....but he lacked self-respect and at the end of it all, it cost him his entire career it seems.

Bertolacci is just trash. He probably belongs in a club like Verona or Lecce. But he is probably so arrogant after playing for Milan, he likely wants a big salary. If he ends up going to Torino, he's likely to be just a bench option.

Mauri wasn't bad for us. Of course, he had no business playing for Milan, EVER....but he was ok this past year. I'm surprised nobody has taken a chance on him yet.
It is absolutely great what Maldini Boban have done to our team especially removing fodders and adding quality into our depth. IMO our improved bench could be crucial this season. What exciting more is that we have subs that could compete with first team players. Hakan is probably now a squad rotation player. He did bad in his first game but his position could be adressed as the reason of his form in that game. However in second game, he managed to perform in the Paqueta's spot. Same with Silva although he has gone but new comer, Rebic and Leao might also replace Suso and/or Piatek.

As someone said on other forum, we have subs players that can not be underestimated (could be better than 16/17 team). If we have starting line-up like this Donnarumma; Leao, Romagnoli, Musacchio, Calabria; Paqueta, Bennacer, Kessie; Rebic, Suso; Piatek, we will have subs with  Reina; RR, Duerte, Caldara, Conti; Hakan, Biglia, Krunic; Jack, Castillejo; Leao. Our subs might have chance to win our starter team.

So, it depends on MG now. It is his job to make these teams perform.

Rebic/Leao is rightfooted while Paqueta is leftfooted
Suso is leftfooted while Bona is rightfooted

Their combos on the flanks will be awesome!

Interesting formation and I like your reasoning. Would love to see it.

                                                     (My preferred starters)
      This will probably be our formations this season as seen from the two previous games. Concerning the starting 11... Imo players such as Borini Samu Hakan RicRod Biglia should not be our main starters, but considering how RicRod Hakan Borini and Biglia are more experienced and play safer(defensive) I can see them getting more minutes than deserved as an attempt to create stability in the team. Therefor throughout the season we might see Biglia Hakan and RR starting quite often while Borini getting substitute minutes(which he shouldn't if we truly want to develop our talents). Cant blame Giampaolo for this as he is a more system orientated coach and he prefers older players who follow the instructions strictly regardless of skill level (Paqueta, Theo).   
      What I hope to see before the new year is a fluid team that plays similar to our preseason game with Benfica. Comfortable possession based game. I'm hoping Leao can break into the starters be it by taking Suso's advanced position or by replacing Piatek for some games, for now his speed makes him a good impact sub. I'm also hoping that Giampaolo takes risks and starts the new signings. I hope to see Rebic start from the first day and I'm praying to never see Borini and Samu start again.
      I have no expectations on Bonaventura, Caldara, Conti, and Krunic but it would be a pleasant surprise if this players broke through as they have to potential to do so.
      The biggest challenge this season will be a new coach with a new system trying to stabilize a very very young team. The market could of brought an established midfielder and by the looks of the past two games we could use reinforcement on the right back position. Other than that the market was lovely.
      First post on the forum, sorry if too lengthy. I could write a whole 20 paged detailed analysis on how 'out of form' Hakan is and how he should only play in advanced positions and how he is very overrated by the coaches and some Milan fans but I rather not. Very excited for the season, we got a lot of potential and could see something beautiful blossom. It's just going to require patience and time but by the words of our godlike leader Maldini "it's a long term project".
