Samu so close to scoring a magnificent goal. Good save. That's Fiore's sub keeper, no? He seems pretty good every time I've seen him.

You guys here sounded happy with Kessie last week...I still don't see it and he is wasting balls again. This is not 'free role' type player.

Free role defensively. Kanté-like, just press everyone. And less playmaking duties, just occasional runs. Right now if we attack on the right bassically he has to be part of it, and he tends to be very poor at it.

Anyway, what the hell is wrong with these corners. Not a half decent one.

You look at this team playing now and you begin to wonder how we managed to beat Atalanta away.

Right sided mid in a 4-3-3 being a defensive presser, if (not saying he does) Gattuso thinks that will work it is and if he is modelling Kessie anything like himself then is also lol
Kante had his success in the middle of the 3 and he is much more of pure 'hustle'/run type than Kessie

I think Kessié is in that situation where every mistake he made is scrutinized and magnified.

Kanté was brilliant both for Leicester and Chelsea playing just alongside Drinkwater (4-2-3-1) and Matic (5-2-3) respectively. No middle of the three. Definitely more of a hustler than Kessié, but that's the only way I see Kessié excelling. Definitely agree on Gattuso modeling Kessié on his role though. The thing is, he also had Pirlo, Seedorf, etc around him.


Really poor first half.

Been a while since I watched you guys.

Not a good enough performance from Milan so far imho.

Aside from Castillejo, who had a couple of decent shots and created for Kessie to hit the sidenet, creativity lacked from other players. Piatek hasn't had much service. On his day, Friday

We are bad. But most of all I would wanna comment on the rubbish fearful tactics of Gattuso. Instead of putting pressure we just keep on falling back, giving Empoli plenty of time to hold the ball and do whatever. If I didn't know better I would think we are going for a draw.

Once again clueless upfront. Too slow and lacking ideas. Apart from the Castilejo shot from outside of the box we didn't create anything.

We just suck against teams whose main goal is to defend and we suck when we have to win, especially at home.

This has been a constant issue with Gattuso. I guess that is part of why we concede less (even though we don't look too solid sometimes), but it's just ridiculous in games like this. Everybody behind the ball in our own half.

Anyone who still complain about Calabria defense should take a good look at Conti's poor defense in the 1st half:

- Emporli is running riot on his side
- He concede the dangerous free kick just before Milan's penalty box because he was too late for his target.
- Lost too many balls due his misplaced pass or dribbling, esp. between 30-40 min, which result dangerous counters from Empoli.

Piatek had no shot in the first half 'cause he basically got service whatsoever from his teammates.

Kessie's football intelligence is probably beyond repair: always makes the worst decision! He should pass the ball to Piatek when Castellejo sent him the ball just inside the box.

Emopli's goalkeeper is super tonight. Empoli looks more focused and sharper than Milan. This is going to be a tough game. Milan players should wake up.
