Same crap every season. We always lose steam around the March, April time frame because we are tired (even though we play fewer games than our competitors), not in form (who knows why) and have too big a head cause we won a few games. It's kind of remarkable that despite the constant revolving door of players, coaches, execs and even owners, the same problem is there literally every season like clock work.

doesnt matter, just throw in an attacker. we were eager to get a goal
Had to work and missed the game. Stupid game time.

Seems like a tragic result; losing 2 points, and losing two important players. Couldn't have come at a worse time.
We were not great in the 1st half, but a dirt poor Udinese meant that we didn't risk anything. The 2nd half, we were absolute SHIT!!!!! FUCKING SHIT!

I know that with 2 strikers, you need movement and at least one of them to make lateral movements and pull defenders away from the center....but what fucking good is it when Cutrone is the one supplying the crosses for Piatek?? (please don't mention the goal. it was a 1 off and something that could have happened with wingers as well) Where the fuck were the fullbacks???? For the people here "crying" for a 4-3-1-2.......without great attacking fullbacks, it turns to shit!! The point of 2 strikers is to have multiple bodies in the box at all times attacking crosses that usually come from fullbacks providing width and bombing forward. I can't think of a SINGLE cross that Abate or Laxalt provided. NOT ONE!!! Then, Calabria comes on and has the opportunity to put in at least 10 crosses.......but every single one of them is absolute DIRT POOR!! I mean, what the fuck do these people do in training??? How can you be a professional footballer, one that plays a wide position that requires crossing when you are in the attacking third.....AND YOU CAN'T HIT A SINGLE CROSS RIGHT????? Not ONCE, NOT FUCKING ONCE did he make the right contact with the ball!!! You would expect 2 strikers to stay close to each other and combine with one another. Instead we have Piatek in the box and Cutrone running left and right, picking up the ball and trying to cross as if he's a winger. These aren't combination plays. This is nothing. And it turned to nothing!

The only positive I saw in this game was Paqueta's movement! It's a crime not to play him behind the striker/s and give him a free role. He moves so well and creates so many problems.
Cutrone's movement was good too, but I feel he spent too much time out wide.

All in all, a terrible fucking game. We barely created anything, were slow as shit when moving the ball and 99% of our passes were backwards or sideways.

Biglia.....what exactly does this guy add to our game? Receive the ball, play it back to the CBs. Receive the ball, play it to Abate sideways or to Laxalt sideways. I mean, what the actual fuck!?!?!?!? He is supposed to be the player to kick-start our attacks. The player to move the ball vertically and put us in favorable positions in the opponent's half. Instead, this motherfucker gets the ball and turns around to give it the Musacchio or Romagnoli. Just take him the fuck out and don't put him in any more. We don't need a player like this. You are better off telling the CBs to kick-start the attacks and put a player elsewhere on the pitch. We were basically playing a man down with this dumbass on the field. Maradona was right when he said..."how can we win the world cup when we have Biglia starting in the midfield".

Bakayoko....yet another poor performance. Don't we have a SINGLE player in this squad that can hold their form for more then 2 months?????? Bad passes coupled with slow play and bad decisions. Never a single run in the box. Any successful team has midfield runners into the box creating a late run and a danger. Instead, I don't know if Bakayoko or Calhanoglu put a foot in the box during open play.

Calhanoglu.....sell! Just sell. that's all. Adds ZERO to the team.


I may sound too pessimistic.....but how can you not be????? We played against Udinese at home and created close to nothing! At 1-1, instead of peppering their goal with shots and crosses, making them defend desperately for their life, we could barely fucking move! What a fucking embarrassment. Other then Paqueta, that entire midfield that played today needs to be out of fucking Milano next year. If they stay, they should all be relegated to the bench! They looked like god damn amateurs.

And Gattuso......if Abate can't play more then 60 minutes due to poor conditioning, then DON'T FUCKING START HIM!!! The only players that should start are ones that can play 90 minutes. With Abate starting, we were already wasting 1 substitution before the game even started because you knew he's going to have to come out after 60 minutes.

We are throwing the season away. We are playing HORRIBLE football! Absolute TRASH!! I was hoping that we can grind out some wins and that our advantage of 4 points over 5th could somehow carry us to the end.....but holly shit!!! We may not last another 2 weeks with Juventus and Lazio coming up! The way we are playing (or NOT playing actually), we are actually going to find ourselves 4 points behind 4th in no time.

Slowly but surely, I am crossing on the side of Anti-Gattuso! The players are not great and some of them just don't belong here. But regardless, this is just not good enough. It's been years since Milan was an entertaining team. I mean, what the hell did we just watch today??? Any neutral fan that stumbled upon that game today would have switched the channel within 5 minutes. Slow, sloppy, low quality, you name it! Like I said, I'm fully aware that we are not an elite team at the moment....but Jesus....when you are in the middle of a fight for a CL spot, the score is 1-1 vs Udinese at the San Siro with 15 minutes left......there needs to be more done. From everyone, including Gattuso! We should have been putting Udinese in a bottle, making them defend for their lives in their own box. Instead we did nothing. Absolutely nothing. We could have played another half of football and we were still not going to score.


I'm sorry for the rant and for the rough language. But this is so frustrating! Year after year, same old story. If we are not going to win, let's at least be entertained. Let's at least play some good attacking football. What we are experiencing instead is TORTURE! I honestly hope that Sarri gets sacked and comes to Milan. At least we are going to dominate teams, play some fluid passing football where players interchange positions and combine during attacks. We'll at least be entertained, win or lose.
When we thought we could perform better than 4-3-3 and without those has-been non-performers Suso, Kessie, etc, we went even worse. FBs were poor, midfield other than Pacqueta too were poor. Bakayoko suddenly switched to his early days form, Biglia was disappointing, and Hakan, I thought he could drive the team forward when Pacqueta limped off, he seemed to have run away and avoided passes from others instead. Just speechless to see the 2nd half game..
To be perfectly honest, this team does not deserve to play in Champions League. Even at our best this team cannot get out of the group. I mean, we lost to Betis and Olympiacos just months ago.

If 4th place will mean that Gattuso stays, lets just throw everything away. He is limited, and will always be limited. Lets get some coach who can give us the extra mile. Yes, our team is crap, but just look at Man utd how they have improved just with the coach switch, the same players playing much better.
I just cannot comprehend how we are still stuck with the caretaker.

Agreed...but on the other hand I kind of want Gattuso to succeed. I think he's improving and if he gets us to 4th he'll keep improving. He's is atrocious at our attacking play though and that is his biggest weakness.
unfortunately we need that UCL spot desperately, otherwise we would have to witness those clowns in midfield again. We qualify, the team performs badly in start of season, he gets fired. thats the (bad ) scenario Im thinking of
Pre-match i was happy. The line-up was what i wanted. In the first half i thought, Good. Not exactly fantastic. But we will go and and win and that is all i demand. Of course the 2 injuries were bad news. Then the 2nd half just was a team who can easily grab a CL position but for some reason it just is not enough for them. Wasted wasted points.
