Why do you care so much about Milan? If they're up there by late March, sure. But it's 12 games in, less than 1/3 of the season. There's no Milan, come on.

Because they've been winning and playing pretty decent football. It's annoying to watch frankly.

I doubt they'll go the distance, but crazier things have happened.

Reminder that we were losing 2-0 to this godawful Torino (without even Belotti) until the players abandoned Conte's schemes.

As were we.

How many of them starters? From the top of my head, can only think of Skriniar and Young.

Agreed on the squad depth bit. I still consider the fact that we are still on top with a very young squad and barebone depth impressive.

CL spot still remains the goal at the end of the day.

This sounds like you got a point, but I couldn’t elaborate this objectively since that your kessie’s stomp to hakimi left unpunished..

He'd be the perfect rotational option for Lukaku.

Absolutely.
And I think he would also be a perfect fit for Conte's forwards.
If we keep Conte (let's hope not), I think he should be a signing we have to make, taking into account that if Torino sucks all season long, they won't be able to ask an astronomical sum to free him.

Not even close?!? Belotti scored 9 and asissted 3 in 11 matches comparing to Lukaku’s 10 and 2... with much worse service.

Papu will fit right in with our lot then..

Belotti is an ideal rotation option but Cairo would never let him leave for less than 50-60mil. He's simply not that good-- a 25-30mil player TOPS. I get the feeling the only way Belotti leaves Torino is if he has a very public row with the management and I doubt he's willing to do that.

Belotti will leave in 2022 when his contract expires. Sadly no team will want to pay the money Torino is asking for him. He would definitely be an upgrade to any team in the Serie A (for some as a starter, for some as a very good rotational option).

If Torino goes down this season, there will be a battle who's gonna get Belotti for cheap next summer.

ibrahimovic suffered a relapse of his calf injury (on the left leg) during a training session, he will be out for at least 10 days and will probably also miss the match against juventus on the 6th of january. aging is a bitch, zlatan.

Feel for him, despite him being a Milan player. Hope he gets better.

The fucker is an absolute legend even at 39. The way he has inspired that team of kids and misfits into a force to be reckoned with, and at 39 is easily their best players and possibly the best player in Serie A sop far this season. 39! To put it in context, grandpa Valero is 35 now. Zlatan is 39. Absolute legend.

Milan aren’t a concern in the slightest. When they match Rube we need to hope they win, unfortunately the thieves still remain the biggest threat by far. I don’t get why people are downplaying them, the only reason they’re not 10 pts clear is cos they have a rookie coach. On paper they have the best team since 2017 naturally since they’ve spent a shit on of money. Add in the usual referee decisions and we have a mammoth of a task. We need reinforcements in January, we don’t need numbers but we need 2 top quality players. One to replace Eriksen and we need a very good LWB
