How do Milan rank at this point compared to the 2022/23 season? – the details

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan have had a very mixed start to the 2023/24 Serie A season but the majority of fans would likely say that they are disappointed with the team’s league position right now.

The Rossoneri are currently third in Serie A after 12 games, with a record of seven wins, two draws and three defeats.

Their 23 points is three less than they had in the 2022/23 season at this point, but the distance to the team at the top of the table is the same. It is Inter who lead the way this time, and they handed out the worst match of this early stage of the season, beating Milan 5-1.

The eight-point gap up to Inter is certainly a problem as Milan expect to be in the title race this season. That can still be the case, but some lacklustre performances mean that Juventus and Inter certainly look like better sides right now.

Injuries have been a problem for Stefano Pioli which means that form should theoretically improve as players return to fitness.

  1. Lol I literally said this as a comment the other day. All of this upheaval and spending on an “improved team” by all accounts in these comments in the summer only to be one win less and one more loss than last year smh 🤦
    Where exactly is the improvement?
    Leao gets “help” from the RW so what’s the issue…. midfield? Maybe they’re not as good a signings as we think OR management failed to purchase the right players for the tactics

  2. The improvement is to use more and more individual brilliance rather than a team effort. Pioli asked for another Leao in RW. He asked to be equipped with players with a more individual dribbling skill rather than passing trait. And he literally said to give more ball to Leao as his strategy.

    And to put more salt in the wound, 2 of the most useful signings so far, RLC and Pulisic were already approached by the previous management. And ironically those 2 names were the ones that got doubted and bad mouthings the most here in the window

  3. They’re all decent signings, the fact is Pioli has been clueless when it comes to his tactics. Can’t fault the signings, also Leao and Theo haven’t been firing on all cylinders so that has an impact too. Especially in Theo’s case as Calabria currently leads the way when it comes to contributions leading to goals, Theo has been off the boil

  4. its true.. he had the right idea at the star of the season but they reversed back to whatever they been doing last year.. He only cares about his job and not about making Milan a force to be rekoned with. Every fire goes out eventually. Unless you’re Pep and have unlimited cash to spend 😀

    Exactly but actual verified results on the actual pitch won’t change people’s completely arbitrary opinions of the players.

    The squad has alleged improved because we signed all of these new exciting players (even one’s that were challenging with midtable teams in other leagues).

    Had we signed Krunic this summer the media and therefore fans would’ve been excited!

    New players = Better players regardless of the merits….

    The issue is it’s not about new or old, but stability. Sure sign new players that improve the squad but also recognise every signing is disruptive – so we need to weigh up the pros and cons.

    And we don’t need multiple signings to solve one problem.

    We didn’t need 3 midfielders to solve the one problem that was created when Kessie left.

    We didn’t need to ‘upgrade’ the right hand side with not 2 but 3 new players (whilst completely arbitrarily losing the experience and familiarity we had in that position).

    But activity, any activity, impresses the media and therefore the fans.

    I’d love to have seen some of the posts from the 17/18 season (an ostensibly better transfer campaign because we signed established Serie A players e.g. Bonucci, Biglia and the Atalanta contingent).

    There’s very little about this summer that fills me with confidence. I hope I am wrong.

  6. Are you a bot? 😂

    But to be fair though, I concur with you that you don’t improve a team by signing ten players at a go. TEN! If the summer of 2017 didn’t teach us anything, then we will never learn.

    I was very excited that summer. Who wouldn’t? We were five years into the banter era. We went from Alessio Cerci, Valter Birsa, Luiz Adriano to Bonucci (arguably the best defender in Europe at that time), Biglia (one of the best DMs in the league), & some exciting young talents.

    Oh boy!😂😂😂

    We know how that panned out.

    I was hoping for a summer of targeted signings because it was obvious we needed improvements in certain areas. But we went and got 10 with more coming in January (according to Bring it on!😁

    However, what has happened has happened. We support the club no matter what!

    For me, the bare minimum is UCL qualification. Anything extra is a bonus. Hopefully next year the players have gelled well enough for us aim higher.

    Well, that is if we don’t sign another ten players. 😁

  7. The squad is better than last year. The issue is that Benny is out and Pioli has no idea how tactics work in football. Any decent coach would get more out of players such as Adli, RLC, Reijnders, Pulisic, Chuku, Hernandez etc.
