When you see the reserve goalies who played 0 minutes this season celebrate like that it's proper team spirit. And Vidal, who was a bench player.

A bit surprised that none of the voodoo practitioners here picked up on this obvious omen.

What I find a bit ironic is that we allowed Milan more chances in this derby compared to the derby we lost earlier this season. Difference was an inspired Handanovic. Not that he was to blame for the 2 Zlatan goals when we lost but making 3 saves in a minute or so is mad... in terms of us creating chances, we had 6-7 yesterday which is pretty good, and took basically half our chances, while in the lost derby we had 6-7 chances and only took 1 which is a much poorer conversion rate. Basically created a lot in both derbies but converted better yesterday.
Nice observation. We were deadly with the supply to Ibra on the first derby. Hats off to Handa.
Still we are not at your level as a team.

Just realised we now have the 2nd best defense in the league.

That ridiculous high line we saw at the start of the season against the likes of Fiorentina, Gladbach and Real Madrid is thankfully a thing of the past....

Conte settled on his best back 3 and kept them, stability is important for a backline especially. Also the team in general tracks backs and closes spaces infront of the defence, tactical discipline is vital.

And @red ...ffs don't be overconfident or cavalier about this. Genoa can eff us UP. Any team in the league can do it.
