BTW in Carlos era when we won 2 CL and lost one final, we almost always lost the games against weak opposition in CL when the qualification was achieved... did that affect our winning mentality?

We didn't have a winning mentality. With that team we should have won twice as many titles and I find it shocking we didn't win anything of note 2004/05 nor 2005/06 when we had IMO the worlds best team. And that one single scudetto we won clearly points towards a lack of winning mentality, that hunger to win every time we put our boots out. It was just not there.

Yes, in Serie A not in Champions league. And we all know who was in charge of Serie A back than.

In CL we won 2 and lost one in an unexplainable way. Also played a semi final and lost to Barca, also with a suspicious decision to cancel Shevas goal.

That team definitely had a winning mentality... Just go back and see the wins vs Real, Bayern, ManU...

We should have won more titles. In spite of 2 wins which is really great, we also often choked with Carlo in the UCL and lost when we should have won. 2003/04, it was ours to lose, and we lost 0-4 against an inferior side. And 2005, again we lost against an inferior side. Serie A was controlled by Juve but we could have won one or two more Scudetti. I was always really annoyed about the lack of consistency of Carlo’s Milan in Serie A

Lord Bonera will lead us to glory against Gattuso's Napoli.

On a serious note, he has a coaching license 😂
Pioli should be afraid...

Osimhen won't be available for Napoli - Milan. Good news for us. However they do have a solid back-up in Petagna.

Zlatan with a great header. No big deal though as it was just Koulibaly marking him

We are allowing them too much room and space in front of our box. Would be better if we made them attack on the flanks and putting in crosses as their attackers are so small.

We have had the kind of luck we missed against Verona and Roma. Let’s hope that continues.
