    He is comparing a shirt that an opposing player gave willingly to a scalp

    I think it was a subtle joke, apparently both players know each other and talked before and after the match, Acerbi could have taken it as a joke or talked to Bakayoko about it but he decided to be offended and go to social media first, and then later say enough is enough.

    I didnt like the gesture but going so far as to call it a scalp, or as a prize after war like Brheme said is going to far. He didnt take it off him and he didnt disrespect it, he did what people do nowadays, take silly pictures in the moment.

    EDIT

    Pose doing silly shit in the moment

    Wonder if Bonucci and Chillieni did this if there would be any discussion about a punishment or talk of a scalp.

    They would say they are respecting the player who gave them said shirt and should be awarded the Nobel pice prize for recognizing their rivals on the field.

    They didn't take a silly picture, they "posed" to the Curva Sud with a beaten opponent's shirt and were randomly photographed in the process.

    In forum lingo, this is baiting & trolling.

    True, he may have been posing but the picture was gonna get taken regardless but i meant he did something in the heat of the moment that was silly.

    It was a "lack of class" to do by Bakayoko/Kessie, but not even close to something that deserves this amount of conversation. Like someone said, Bonucci's comments are much more serious but the truth is that most reports in Italy are probably on friendly terms with someone like Bonucci who is a mainstay in the national team. On the other hand, we know what FIGC thoughts are if foreign players (especially of a different race) do anything that may be thought of as "provocation". The person at the end of it was Acerbi too, who is at Italian making Kessie/Bakayoko an easy target. I even remember someone in a high-up position comparing the Koulibaly incident to the boos that Bonucci received from Milan fans, so that tells you a lot about how certain people think. Similarly, when Ferrero made stupid comments about Thohir's nationality, a lot of people found it funny, without realizing that those underlying thoughts speak volumes about how certain people feel of those of a different race/nationality.

    Not trying to pass judgment on Italian people as a whole at all as that's unfair, just a certain group of people (which you can find in other countries as well).

    Atalanta only got a draw at home against Empoli. This is good news for us, as a contender for champions League positions drops points. Had they won this one, they would be level on points with bbilan, so someone might argue that it's a pity as they could be a challenge for the rossoneri.

    I prefer this way, I just see it as a race where we need to end at least fourth.

    Tonight's match is also a warning, as we will face Empoli in the last match: hopefully by then we will have already secured champions League, but you never know

    They say FFP has made it impossible for a club with lower revenues to aim high, even if it has an ambitious owner who wants to invest. Bullshit. Its about competence of management. FFP is just a scapegoat for incompetent clubs who want to buy success. It took Juve and Napoli just 6 years to go from Serie B top 2 to Serie A top 2.



    *FFP came into play from 2010, when Juve were 7th and Napoli 6th in Serie A. Inter were 1st and Milan 3rd, and had bigger revenues. However both the Milanese clubs ignored FFP for the first few seasons. This season will be the 4th season since that Juve-Napoli have finished 1-2 in Serie A.

    Sadly, I agree. I would've rather seen Atalanta win tonight and continue to push Milan for the last CL spot (though Milan's pillow-soft schedule should give them the leg up regardless), but since we're no guarantee we need all the help we can get; our schedule is still pretty torturous to look at, relatively speaking.

    "But, Kramer, if Atalanta reaches the CL, odds are their squad and coach will be picked apart."

    I don't care. Coefficients don't mean a damn thing anymore in Italy. Why should I want Milan in there just because they'll provide a tougher challenge from Serie A? Last time I checked, Milan's European history does a number on ours. I'd rather close the gap than see them in there anytime soon.

    Ridiculous. It was the kind of game that happens with you regularly in FM.
    Atalanta had over 6 xG and scored none.

    gazzetta.it reports that after milan-lazio Lucas Leiva said to a Milan manager on the wheelchair: "just sit there and shut up".

    edit: Lucas Leiva strongly denies that he has said that. Guess we'll see but if it's true lol, how retarded one must be to say that.

    After seeing this post I googled Lucas Leiva, just the usual wiki search, then I noticed this guy is married to ADRIANA LIMA?!?!

    Then I looked better and saw that his wife is Ariana Lima (some random girl)

    So yeah, funfact.

    No, he's not married to the Brazilian model Adriana Lima, but to a woman called Ariana Lima (with no "d").
