Yeah well. As in BB song, The Thrill is gone. Nothing in the mirror that I can call sexy.

We are deff playing effective football, but not sexy football, id like the return of wingers in attack and or a trequartista
I'm not a fan of the 352 formation in general, but the way we play football is both great and offensive. Considering the players we have, it seems challenging to achieve better results. imo he's been the best coach we've had since the thriple.

Putting that aside, the reality is that we need a substantial amount of money to rebuild the team with a new formation. Unfortunately, this seems unattainable given our current financial situation.

Well hopefully ADL translates into them winning Barça, as he hates Barça as much as us

Just imagine we could've baught two great wing backs like Alphonso Davies as LWB and Hakimi as RWB and a great finisher striker like Haaland then we would have played sexiest football ever. Sexy football needs sexy players.

Real Madrid, Barca, Man City, PSG have the best wc players in the world. so no body should expect us to play football like them. players like Vinicius Jr, Lewandowski, Haaland, Mbappe make the huge differnces. having only one of them for every club is a blessing.

I've read in the media that minimum ban for intervention like Jovic's is at least 3 games.
I'm pretty sure that he will get max 2 or even one.

Watching us bring on our stella back up forwards in today's match made me so angry abour how terrible our league is. We cannot make money despite being last year's finalist. When is the league gonna stop being terrible and start helping to facilitate the success of its clubs. Literally once we finish this current cycle we're very likely to not have a side like this again for another decade just like last time.

I guess I should enjoy our current success while it lasts, but I find it depressing nonetheless.

I was reading my Georgian friends is their forum about Kvara. The discussioon was where he should move, Barca or stay in Napoli. Appearantly, he is making salary of only 1 million a year. That was the deal, when he moved from Dinamo Batumi. I suggested, if he stays in Italy, he should try for Inter or Milan. I think he is not a good fit in for us and we don't have the money, but Milan has the money and Kvara-Leao-Pulisic would be great attacking trio.

BTW, Juve could be an option too.

If he could choose, Milan is the only logical choice for Serie A

Milan can buy him only if they sell Leao for crazy money. But, I don't believe it. ADL will ask for too much in order to sell to direct rival.

I hope they never sell Leão, I want them to keep selling themselves on his extremely inconsistent performance. Further, there will no doubt be an English club that would convince themselves of Leão's attributes and pay way more than he's worth, and I don't want Milan being able to do another Tonali window.

Leao is an incredible player, honestly. Put him in some other competitive club that isn't stacked with a bunch of mediocre players, and see how he's gonna dominate anyone.

Fair enough, but if Milan isn't the club to bring those qualities out of him, then I hope he remains there, falling short of his ceiling. I don't think I said anything about doubting his skill, I said he's very inconsistent.

I even said last season that he lacks consistency, like big time, but let's keep in mind that he's got quite a lot responsibility and expectations on his shoulder. It's not easy when your team lacks balance in overall. Milan's team is full of mediocre players, and feels like sometimes they lack identity.

His lack of consistency is his own issue as well, but part of it is also Milan's shambles situation.

It's been a while since Calabria was competitive, and then you have Theo whom was complete ass for almost two years now. I'm not even gonna talk about their defence or their attacking force. Giroud has been quite good this season in term of stats, but in overall their attacking department is lacking so much as a group.

Their midfield is one big loop hole if you analyse absences and lack of quality in there.

I blame Pioli for Theo's so called fall

He is doing good for my standards, but Pioli can't stick to a formation to save his life. Theo would be amazing as a left wingback, but plays as a LCB some games???
