1-0!
Empoli look like they're struggling with us. We need to take even more control of the match now and get a second asap.

Should not have said that.
What is with our defence this season, it's ridiculous. Two misses by Kessie, we just can't score that second goal to finish off the game.
Can Kessie be any more wasteful? Does he want to ruin Milan again after what he did last weekend against Atalanta?

Caldara should be introduced in Serie A. We need alternative for the defense.
The thing is though, this match does not have to be a battle for us. Empoli don't look like a good team. They're not pulling us apart with their tactical superiority. They are attacking us a lot doing very basic things, because by a lack of alertness and fluidity in our play, we keep gifting them the ball and leaving them spaces to run in. We need to match their intensity, both physically and mentally. They are fighting really hard, and we need to do the same. We need to want this win just as much as they want to avoid an embarrassing defeat. Right now it's like we're always half a second behind them, and that has to do with attitude and a lack of mental fortitude. These boys need to be a lot more confident and stop getting scared by teams that are really not good enough to be creating this many problems for us.

Empoli were actually there for the taking in the first half, but we showed weakness when they tried to fight back. In the second we need to go out and really show them who the better team is. On paper they're nowhere near good enough to match us, and we need to convert that fundamental advantage into a solid result. I mean, they would be delighted to have Borini in their squad, while we're despairing that he's playing instead of Gonzalo Higuain... We need to respect them, but if we're running scared of a team like Empoli, we need to man up a bit and realise how much better our squad is.
Now Romagnoli playing terrible. Lol
This is surreal.
Wow. We need to wake the f up.
