    Suso and Kessie are worth looking at. Kessie in particular could be useful for a club with a pretty shit midfield like us.

    Conti could turn into a solid RWB, he has already shown what he can do last year with Atalanta and the signs are promising. Shame his season was cut short by a horrific injury this year. Cutrone has had a very good start to the season and he will be a name to remember if he keeps up his form throughout the season. Bonucci is Bonucci, enough said. Suso would probably offer more to our attacking play than any of our current options. We are desperately lacking a creative outlet like him.

    I too admire AC Milan as they are a historic club. Although I hope you recognize the parallels with them and city/chelsea

    Nah, they have a few gems who would shine in a stable environment. Bonucci, Cutrone, Romagnoli, André Silva, Suso, Kessie, Conti etc.

    They've basically done a Everton.

    About time. They should go for Ancelotti at the end of the season.

    Would have loved to see Gattuso play for us. Proper player. Really interested to see what he does as a manager.

    Can't believe they have gone for yet another old boy appointment. Ridiculously insular and backward looking club.

    He is just keeping the seat warm for Ancelotti for the summer. Ancelotti had already said he would start a new job in summer and this could be a good deal for both clubs.

    After him it'll be Nesta and then Dida. Strange club.

    Expected, but not with Gattuso. He brings nothing.

    What do you guys think about their Romagnoli and Rugani ? Who's better ? Are they on the same tier (of young CBs) with the likes of Sule, Bailly, Christensen ?

    Rugani, but he needs more chances.

    Romagnoli is better and yes, definitely on the same level as those 3. I'd argue he's the best of the bunch

    Deserved sacking but the current replacements is even worse except for the spirit he'll bring.

    Their season is pretty much fecked anyway. They won't even get a Europe League qualification spot.

    And so their future is bleak. They have to qualify to the Champions League to refund the money to the Elliot Fund.

    If true, Milinkovic-Savic on 30k ish a week?! Surely he'll be on more come summer either at Lazio or elsewhere. Suspect some of those players from Napoli will move on in summer too if they win the League.

    These salaries are after tax apparently - so he's getting around 60-65k a week

    A lot of false hope in the summer has been shattered.

    I admit i was fooled by their summer signings. Just quantity, not quality.

    Pity. I hoped this was the re-rise of Milan.

    I think any club that regressed in the money era of football will never get back to the top. Liverpool is a fine example.

    Salaries reported in Italy are usually after tax figures

    Gattuso not going to last past xmas is he, already calling out his players.

    Tim Sherwood would probably be more use as manager. :lol:

    To me it's more mentality.

    We saw it with their neighbours last season. Inter had pretty much similar squad first 11 to what they were putting out last year and Icardi was still scoring lots of goals but they didn't have the killer instinct. They beat Juventus 2-1 early last season (under De Boer) and then lost their next 3 which got FDB the sack. Pioli was also level below what they needed.

    They get a great coach in like Spaletti from Roma and they win most weeks now.

    Milan needs a top class european coach. Still think Ancelotti will pitch up there in the summer. Pellegrini wouldn't be a bad choice either.

    Failed to get a single shot on target against the mighty Rijeka. Absolute travesty.

    Find it hard to believe Juve are paying D Costa 200k a week if that's the case.

    City / psg...all it takes is an owner with very deep pockets.

    Juve aside as they seem to have good management in place and have money (somehow), one thing that is a barrier is the Italian league just isn't what it was 15-20 years ago and foreign countries are really wanting to watch the PL and La Liga. Going to be very hard for other leagues to break the monopoly and thus attract the investment
