This might sound like a silly question but in the Milan derby do they split the fans 50/50 or is it like any other normal matches where who evers classed as the home team will have majority of the fans?

The latter. I don't think that's a silly question at all by the way, I spent years wondering.

I look at the Milan side and I see more quality individuals. But Inter are a far better team, Pioli has been horrendous, surprised he's still there.

Thought so. Just a weird one with them sharing grounds but I imagine quite a few of them go in the opposite end anyway. They might be family/friends that support the opposite but sit together at the stadium.

Such a great goal from Thuram. Just waits for the defenders to block their own keeper's line of sight and places it. Must be great clinching the title away to your biggest rival and on your own turf simultaneously.

Milan look horrendous. They look like us.

Also the TNT Co-commentator is doing my tits in with his pronunciation of Giroud.

Saying it like ‘Gerude’. Irritating.

Leao as a striker feels like your typical “he’s tall stick him up front” type logic

Not really. Other than Leao, Maignan, and maybe Theo, Inter have FAR better players everywhere else

Deserving champion. Inzaghi has done a great job since taking over.


(unsurprisingly Theo and Calabria lose their minds… and Dumfries dragged out with Theo)

Milan has better wingers/second striker attacking options... The problem of Milan‘s attack is their main striker. Giroud isn’t the same anymore, and should be a squad player. They Their midfield is alright.

I also find Inter’s midfield a bit short in numbers. They play 3 and they only have the 3 + Frattesi.

Would love Inzaghi at Utd next season.
Ye he’s the sort of guy we need. He’s a winner! And a perfectionist… he’s turned players like Darmian and Mkhitaryan into world beaters. He improves average players… he also as a strictness about him. I love how he’s always vocal on the touchline even when a few goals up

116 years of Derby di Milano, and tonight is the first time ever that the game assigns a scudetto.

It also never happened before that one of the teams won the derby six consecutive times.

It all had to happen tonight, for our second star, 58 years after we obtained our first in 1966, which was exactly 58 years after the club foundation.

It's such a feeling to be interista tonight.

Inter don't play with wing forwards, and Jovic/Okafor being better than Arnautovic/Sanchez...sure, maybe, but it's not saying much

Meanwhile, Frattesi barely plays for Inter and he'd be Milan's best midfielder - by a lot. De Vrij is a backup for Inter and he'd be Milan's best CB

Lautaro is the best player in the league and Thuram makes the top 5

Milan have Leao, Theo and Maignan. The rest is all fairly average. Good players but not great ones.

Their midfield is alright.
It lacks a defensive anchor, but yeah, it's "allright". Inter's is one of the very best in the world

Well done to Inter fans on here. Do think they'd go all the way to the final of CL again this season if they got through at Atletico. Few big chances missed to kill the game and Atletico punished them unfortunately.

Congratz to Inter fans!!

PD: BTW you lot might have had the most likeable Presidents/ Vices of the world in recent times with Moratti, Fachetti and Zanetti, not a small feature with how despicable those usually are

Jury is out: Juventus are crap
Is Allegri too expensive to sack?

Been a desperate run of form for them in 2024. Two wins in thirteen league games since Jan 21st. Frosinone win was 90th minute aswell. Also failed to score in six of them aswell.

Guess they've just gambled on 5th remaining CL which it has and so they'll take a decision in the summer.

Whoever won the game
Their wing backs are weak, and midfield uninspiring. Locatelli overrated, McKennie and Rabiot below par.

I'd give a run to their academy products like Hans Nicolussi and Kenan Yildiz. Then again, I am sadly not Juve's head coach.

They're sacking him at the end of the season

The luck it always turns. Last year they kept winning in bullshit ways, this season they've dropped a lot of games they should have won

But I was referring to the fact Lukaku scored on them

Allegri sacked. Montero interim manager. Surprised they didn’t just wait and announce Motta. Unless he is having doubts and stays .

Allegri was sacked because he lost his mind after the italian cup final. Completely lost his mind. May be a while before he coaches in Italy again, if ever
