Piatek is also a mystery to me. Has he just lost a substantial amount of pace compared to last year. He looks incapable of running from defenders, something he did for fun at the start of his Milan career.
Paqueta is one of those players where its taken some time to get used to calcio, also when you have 3 different coaches in a short span of time, things can get a little confusing. I think Paqueta is a fine player, he just needs to play more direct and decisive.
First half was open and pretty decent to watch for a neutral. 2nd half was pretty dire.
Your best player imo was Donnarumma...showed how great he is at leaving the goal line. He did a real number on Elmas, ambushing him and pulling away before any contact.
Two little moments I thought were great:-
1. Elmas' slide tackle on Paqueta in the 1st half near the touch line. Elmas started his tackle really early and it seemed to last for a long time, but he surprisingly still nicked the ball back before it went out, surprising Paqueta.
2. Musacchio's slide tackle in the 2nd half. This was pure highlight material. Amazingly executed and beautiful to watch.
I agree with this. I don't even know what his best position is now. Early days yet but I'm afraid he may go the way of Silva - another 40m thrown away. Especially if we get another good midfielder he may it difficult to find space. But then again playing with somebody like Zlatan can lift his game immensely.
Agree...Paqueta has not shown his worth.
We really need a proven creator in the middle. Either we are too predictable or no creative right now.
Bona provide fresh air in this match.
The one with brain.
Pioli is doing pretty good. The team is clearly improving lately. The latest rumors are that the management are "satisfied". Did we finally find the right coach, good enough to build a project? Or should we aim much higher since the start of the season to prevent a Gattuso and Montella scenario...
We have clearly improved the performance in the last two games against Inter and Juve, but the results are still not there. We have not won any of our last two league games, three in total. We really need to win this one to get back on track and win this one to at least make it to...
