I never do post match rankings, but this game was special in more ways than you know at this time and it pissed me off...
Lopez - Garbage
I mean the leap into no man's land was a joke, had Roma scored he would never see the pitch again in my book.
Armero - Awful
The first yellow, dumb, second, dumber. He has all kinds of physical skill and not an ounce of mental nous, Taiwo 2.0.
Mexes - Blah
Most notable thing he did was smack Destro and get a yellow card so he misses the next match, just a regular day at the office.
Zapata - Average
Stayed out of his own way.
Bonera - MOTM
Seriously, he was the only person that did anything, period.
Monty - Ghost
Did he play?
NDJ - Subpar
Started well but faded and Roma owned the midfield, Milan lucky they did nothing with it.
Poli - Lost
Channel runs or defensive cover, Pippo has no idea so neither does Poli.
Bonaventura - On an Island
Occasionally he passed to Menez only to watch him lose the ball, did anyone find him? Nope...
Honda - Time to Find a place on the Bench
Menez - A Plague
Today's tactics, find Menez, watch him lose the ball or get fouled, rinse and repeat.
Pippo...this is going to be harsh
As a player, he thrived off ball movement and surprise balls in the box that he finished time and time again. As a Coach he has become one dimensional and insistent on pinning the tail on a Donkey named Menez. Leo did it with Dinho, Seedorf with Kaka and now it seems Pippo will end up in the same sentence as those Coaches run out of town. I want to believe in him, i want to support him but he has done nothing to warrant that. This was bad, today's futile attempt at football made it worse.
Back tomorrow, less cranky, I promise...
