You guys are making a mistake thinking we played badly. We were just so good in the first half it made the second half look bad. They never looked like scoring. Nor did they ever control the game for a sustained period. Pragmatic performance overall and some great individual performances.

The defense did their bit. Barella was great albeit a little untidy. Lautaro put on a capitano masterclass. Hakan & Mkhi worked hard. Darmian his usual regal self. Gosens and Lukaku are becoming viable options.

Second half was really bad. Gassed out already, concerning.

Toro and barella were class. Toro can keep the band. Masterclass in capitano

Goddamn that felt good. If this team keeps playing defense like this they might give Napoli a bit of a chase. Won't catch them of course but let's make them sweat.

Also I think we may have the best sub options in Serie A right now. Brozo off the bench is crazy. Lukaku looking like he's getting into that form I love as well, where he's just bullying defenders. Either way Inzaghi has brought this team to a great place now we get to see what they can do.

Forza Inter.

Could be we were tired in the 2nd half… we put crazy intensity against Atalanta…

we still were in control cuz merda was already defeated in their head.

We should have destroyed them.. this was the chance to give them an epic smacking.

Don't have one.
Thank you Pioli
Indeed, he gifted us this game with his stupid ass experiment in the first half.

Also, we really should have scored the second, this game was kinda epitome of inzaghiball, playing our ass off in the first half being a thousand times better, then opposition coach switches a bit and we totally lose our momentum.

Calha-Lautaro-Barella cooked Milan.

Lukaku showed he can still deliver, but also that Thiaw guy wasn't bad at holding him at bay.

Ok win.
Ref was poor. Leao should have seen red and clear foul in the box by kalulu on dzeko.
We were quite sloppy in the second half and skriniar screwup could have cost us a lot.

We weren't so good in the first half, rather than Milan were awful. They were totally lost in Pioli's 3-5-2. He change to their usual formation in the second half, and we obviously struggled.

Don`t forget we play Atalanta also mid-week. We don`t have the luxury to change too many pieces.
I take the win and don`t look back. And Lautaro is becoming beter and better. Ball control, distributing. I saw a glimpse of Milito in him today. And less bitching.

I'm happy with any win over them any time.

They had a whole week to rest, while our players played the coppa game on Tuesday vs a strong opponent in Atalanta. We won with a clean sheet both games which is something we criticize Inzaghi about that we don't manage often. In addition, Lukaku showed signs of football life, many things to be happy about overall.

God, its nice to beat Milan but I'm quite disappointed still. We were soooo bad! Giroud fucked up an absolute sitter. That was a banter milan team and we were far from comfortable in the second half.

If Milan continues playing this football they will miss CL. Milan and Juve out of top 4 would be so funny:proud:

I dont care about scoreline,win against merda is only what matters. Hope they stay out of top 4 in the end.
