A win-lose game, no? We win, Sheva probably get sacked. We lose, he gets a stay of execution.

How important is this game, anyway? There's talk Pioli is fielding the best available 11. Maybe management feels we have a shot at winning the trophy. Personally I think it's risky. We have a succession of tough matches coming up after Spezia, so it would be a disaster losing key players to injuries in a Coppa game.

Tomori is back to training so may get to play to get some rhythm in him. Tonali is out of Spezia so expect him to play the whole 90 minutes.

Personally I'll play a lot of primavera kids.

We have nothing else to play for, I see no harm in playing a relatively strong line up here.

Reported:

Maignan

Kalulu-Tomori-Gabbia-Theo

Krunic-Tonali

Saelemakers-Maldini-Rebic

Giroud
My only gripe is Theo starting, and even so, we don't have any subs for him. Could have been a great time to play that Primavera LB though. Miloz Kerkic or something

Let them feature Primavera players; injury is the last thing i want to hear.

There will hardly be a better opportunity to give someone like Kerkez a start. He's supposed to be a promising kid, it's an early rounds Coppa Game against one of the worst teams in the league and we cannot afford to lose Theo.

What a start! We're already 1-0 down and Tomori got injured and subbed.

I really don't understand the need to go "full house" for this game. You run the risk of having players injured, especially with our track record on injuries. I don't think it's worth it, though I can understand why Tomori is playing, maybe to get some minutes into his legs.

The funny thing is that we went "full house," and yet the players clearly don't give a **** about winning this game. Such a lazy performance. At least with 11 bench players they would be motivated to earn a spot.

Yeah Giroud's got to be one of the best headers of the ball of his generation.

Alexis makes it 3-1 after a nice play on the left between Theo, Leao and Tonali.

Diaz is still not there yet but getting better, participated, took shots, etc. He needs to score one urgently for his confidence.

While we struggled against Genoa; Viola banging 6 past them; thankfully Sheva gone before this humiliation.
