  1. That current XI is such a downgrade from last season. (Yes i know this isnt showing our mercator transfers etc.). But if our squad last season struggled to land top 4 im worried about this season…

  2. The biggest problem stays – players sales.

    Let’s not forget about Bakayoko situation how we couldn’t force him to leave last year.

    This year targets: Caldara, Ballo Toure, Messias, Rebic and Origi…

    Is it possible that they can’t sell not even one of these mentioned.

  3. Apart from Leao our whole midfield and attack is painfully average. With this line up even qualifying for the conference league would be a positive season. It’s not going to get much better with the players we’ve been linked with either.

  4. What a load of rubbish.

    Thats last years team minus Tonali!

    We win the league and all we needed was a Rw, AM and striker.
    Instead we lose our best midfielder and don’t replace him.
    We get to champions league semis and we need a midfielder a RW, AM and striker.
    Instead we lose our best midfielder

    Bravo, Bravo

    How to ruin a positive project in 12 months

  5. That is the stuff of nightmares. Krunic is a useful backup but cannot be starting. CDK cannot be starting. But, you add Pulisic, Musah, Reindjers, go 4-3-3. With Bennacer -Musah- Loftus Cheeks in the MF and Leao, Giroud, Pulisic up top and its an improvement over last season. But Milan need to get these deals done.

  6. This board is choosing such a bad moves from first day of mercato, the worst thing is i cant se how they can turn things around anytime soon

  7. I am going to disagree with you all …We still have a great striker in Olivier Giroud and even if we get a back up for him ,Olivier is going to have his best season ever ,,.we have got all credentials to do well ..
    Just think about it Theo hernadaz ,,Rafeol leao and now Loftus cheek and it looks like pulisic also …What an incredible supply of service for Olivier ,,,goals will come from him as well as pulisic ,rafeol leao ,and hopefully from Loftus cheek also ..more signings will follow and yes a back up for Olivier ,but not a replacement…We will challenge for honours next season …So all fans keep optimistic.
