Bastoni's performance was okay; however, he shouldn't have had that reaction. We should stay united and calm. These kinds of behaviors are really unnecessary.
I understand that sometimes, in important games or when we're losing, players can have overreactions that would be understandable. But not in a game where we're likely to have an easy win, especially when we need a few wins to secure the Scudetto.
Bastoni is a professional, and I expect better behavior from him in general, especially considering he is our third captain. He should be a role model for our players, especially for the youth
What? Why can't a player have the reaction of disappointment when subbed off? IMO that's the reaction I want from our players, I want our players to want to play, to be protagonists.

Or did I miss something Bastoni did?

Whether Bastoni is having a good or bad game, Inzaghi usually takes him out around 70-80th minute.
Yeah, Bastoni is usually taken out when he's tired and he's tired because of his style of play and role, which is running up and down the pitch. It's much different from Acerbi for instance. Pavard is a bit same but he seems more quick and less "heavier".

Don't have one.

Yeah, him and di marco are borderline asthmatic :lol:
You can see how much they struggle at the latter stages of matches just by looking at their faces.

I've seen again some complaints about the referees. This time is that the VAR didn't interfere in the first goal.
Jube and Milan fans and media are such crying babies. They cannot accept that we will win it.

Nothing to complain about. It was a second attacking phase which lead to the goal, the first phase was thuram receiving the ball, and those phases simply don't get looked up by var. It's the rules.

Mostly because Juve self destructed

How can you say that?

Yeah, Juve's destructed. 1-4-4 in their last nine games. In that same time frame, we're 8-1-0. We had to hold up our end of the bargain and have done so. Don't take credit away from this team by reducing their lead over Juventus to their own failures.

There is literally no player in the world who would be happy aftter being subed off so eveyone should express their disapproval? And what about refusing to be substituted, as Kepa did at Chelsea?

If it was a problem, it would be a talking point, but it's not. The players should trust Inzaghi this season and that's that. I don't mind us scoring less but still winning. The grind is just a formality right now.

Everyone reacts to their own way. I don't understand how can you make this some kind of an issue when it's not.

I'm going to say the team and coach relationship is above any of this, and reactions from players do not interfere that.

I don't see this kind of reaction in any top clubs. Even when i used to play football in an amateur club, this behavior considered as inappropriate.
My point is we need to avoid any unnecessary behavior as much as possible because that might make us distracted while what we need is concentration to win the scudetto.

Wanna try again? Stop making a big deal out of nothing. Is it ideal for players to get angry when subbed off? No. Is it the end of the world if they do? Hell no.

You don't get my point.
It's end of the world? Hell no
They should do it again? Hell no
We should avoid any unnecessary actions? Hell yes until winning the league

So can you give me an example of this Bastoni behaviour since it seems to be such a big thing for you. I have seen no mentions of that in any media after the match.

I'm not saying it's a big deal, but it's unnecessary, specially after Acerbi´s story. That's not a big ask.

That is when I draw the line myself, like you can be angry at yourself, disappointed of being sub off, but as long as you show respect/acknowledgement to the coach walking pass, showing you guys are in good terms, that is fine.

Like I understand it might not be socially acceptable for showing negative emotions like even if you are frustrated you shouldn't be yelling in the public etc. but in this case I accept it myself.

Didn't saw any problem at all with reactions from Lautaro and Bastoni after being taken off. You are making a problem where is no problem.
Yeah, him and di marco are borderline asthmatic :lol:

I would not judge by that. I can look like dying when riding a bike for 30 minutes and can still ride for 50+ more km without any problems at all. There are also people who are sweating like crazy after 5 minutes and people who are almost never sweating.


This was a calm match. Never in doubt after early goal. Acceptable performance after the international "break". Only Thuram was below average in this one.


Also,how on Earth NOBODY mentioned how good was the build up for our second goal?!?

I have similar sentiments tbh All my coaches were very strict, any kind of reaction was a HUGE deal. A selfish betrayal of the team of sorts. You stfu and do as you are told. Maybe with highly paid professionals it's different....but whenever I see it it makes me squirm
