we played a great game today all around. to keep Napoli scoreless for 2 straight matches is very good defending and goalkeeping. the team runs alot and finally isnt stagnant/static. the attack is finally starting to show some glimpses of high quality play. cheer piatek on the 2 neat finishes

I think this was Laxalt's best match in Milan shirt. He assisted the first goal and involved to the second. Apart from that he was decent defensively and was lively even at the end.

Depends how you want to interpret "with the ball". I already said he has a better shot, which was what that second goal was. A clean shot, a pure strikers strike. But being "good with the ball" isn't about only that. If actually you watched the game you'll see how many times he failed in trying a simple dribble or an acute pass.

But why are we arguing on this? It's not important. What's important is he's a good striker with a clinical finish, fast, confident and a clean shot. That's more than enough for me.

if that was his best match it's yet another and stronger argument why he is not good enough. He was out of position like crazy, he made 8 out of 10 bad decisions or no decisions with passing backwards etc. he can’t be a top notch WB, I am sorryZ

I did watch the game and I don't recall feeling like he was failing in trying to dribble because he won like 3-4 fouls because he dribbled past an opponent who was closing in on him. I mean yeah he isn't no twinkle-toed Neymar but to say "he was not too good" is rather harsh. That second goal he practically moves right getting away from Koulibaly and hits a thunderous shot like I said earlier that kinda goal isn't scored by someone who isn't good with the ball.

This isn't arguing I am merely disagreeing with your assessment because to me he only resembles Cutrone in the fact that he has a high work rate, clinical finisher and that he comes back to help on defense. Of course, we need to see more of him to be able to judge better but yes right now we can agree he is a good striker for sure.

Bakayoko is the best signing we can make this summer. Spend the 35m, if he keeps playing like this he'll be worth 70m.

Also Romagnoli is a ****ing boss in defense. He's really coming into his own this season.

I am one of Cutrones biggest fans here, but I got to agree with Mr Chavunist that Cutrone would not have scored that. One of Cutrones weaknesses is how he hasn't learnt to create space for himself in the penalty area with the ball and that is what Piatek did there. Cutrone knows to find space without the ball, but with it he just takes the shot early.

You have legit reasons for cumming in your pants with those two goals. Sick sick finishes, looks like a machine.

Marotta must be hitting himself for not selling icardi for a large sum and getting this guy for cheap.

- Some posts here should be moved to Copa Italia: Milan vs. Napoli thread

- My thoughts on Piątek: cold-blooded hitman with great finishing!, and he can create space for himself with the ball in the penalty area (i agree with Johan).

If you showed me those two goals and told me they had been scored by Shevchenko, I’d buy it.

They are the same height, but I think Piontech looks a tad bigger.

Where did I say he isn't good with the ball? Is "he isn't too good" same thing as he isn't good? I'm no English man so please tell.

At the end it's just semantics. He wasn't too good, he was too good, he was good, with the ball, etc etc. That depends how you define the terms. Dribbling? Technique? Shooting skills? Flicks? What's your definition of "too good with the ball"? You define it differently and I see it differently. Doesn't remove anything from his ability as a deadly marksman. A very good striker.

And, oh, for clarity, I never meant that he’s exactly like Cutrone. They have similar characteristics but he's definitely a better all-round striker.

While I think Laxalt is mediocre and said he is mostly about running I gotta defend him here. We have mostly played quite assymetrical under Gattuso with our right flank being more offensive with Rodrigues playing, but not with Abate and Laxalt we saw Abate holding back. So I dont see how he was that out of position (first half that I watched) and I certainly didn't see 4/5 bad decisions either. He had a decent game, which unfortunately is more or less the best he can do.

If laxalt can run with energy, you should use him, end of. RR is a snail, like too many other of your players. Dynamism is what this team needs, plus you have Romagnoli to cover for him
