    pato's injury fucked our game up. seedorf was somehow absent today. i was expecting him alongside r-dinho to create chances for our attackers but... nothing.
    still, i expect a tough Livorno to face Inter on Wednesday. then comes Roma...for them. i still believe..its still possible, given Inter's focusing on the CL.
    Lucky not to have lost today and thats most important.1 better than 0.

    Abbiati- 6.5: Fooled on Napoli's goal, like the whole Rossoneri backline, but made nice blocks on a Lavezzi bicycle kick and Quagliarella's close range effort. Must improve his judgement on crosses.

    Oddo- 5: The veteran could not deal with the pressure down the flank, whether it be Lavezzi, Quagliarella, or Hamsik. He was taken off early in the second-half.

    Thiago Silva- 7: Proved he can be effective without the help of Alessandro Nesta as he confidently won tackles and even was a force coming forward with the ball at his feet.

    Favalli- 6: Clearly his legs are not what they used to be as he gets closer to the age of 40, but he his positioning was sound and he did not hinder his team.

    Zambrotta- 6: A far better performance than we usually have seen this season from the World Cup winner. He looks over his injury problems and was a match for Maggio.

    Flamini- 7.5: The ex-Arsenal man did brilliantly, allowing Seedorf and Pirlo to roam free in attack. Singlehandedly tipped the midfield battle in his side's favour for the duration of the match.

    Pirlo- 6.5: His set-pieces gave Napoli plenty to worry about, almost scoring in injury time, and he also cleared a Quagliarella header off the line to keep the scores level at 1-1.

    Seedorf- 6: Invisible in the first 45, but came to life in the second-half. Set up Amantino Mancini for what should have been the winner.

    Pato- N/A: His match lasted less than 15 minutes as he succumbed to another injury.

    Inzaghi- 7: A typcial 'Super Pippo' performance, as he hassled the defence all afternoon and never gave them a moments rest. Scored a pocaher's goal with a close rnage header after slipping past the Napoli backline.

    Ronaldinho- 7.5: Another inspiring performance from Dinho. His assist for Pippi Inzaghi was sublime and he made Gianluca Grava look like a pilona as he whizzed past him time and time again. His passes set up other teammates as well, but the failed to take advantage of his lovely skills.

    Mancini- 5: On early after Pato's injury. The winger failed to win the match when sent clear on goal by Seedorf and otherwise was hardly involved.

    Antonini- 6: Fared better than Oddo and proved he is a capable option at full-back for Milan.

    Huntelaar - N/A: A last throw of the dice by Leonardo, not given enough time to really get involved.

    with Pato injured, Leonardo must change to a 4-3-1-2. with Borriello and Inzaghi. i wish Ronaldinho would come from the back of our strikers as IMO he would be more effective from there. Let Seedorf take that LM role, just as years ago Carlo played.

    borriello inzaghi


    r-dinho

    seedorf max
    pirlo

    Adriano Galliani - Milan (Grazia Neri)

    As Milan failed to move into pole position following a 1-1 draw with Napoli this afternoon, general director Adriano Galliani blamed fate and the low temperatures for his side’s missed opportunity.

    “We hoped to make the jump at the top and unfortunately this didn’t happen,” he declared to SkySport.

    “I thought the boys created many chances to win the game this afternoon, but it wasn’t to be.

    “We remain one point from the top of the standings and there is still much to play for with regards to the Scudetto.

    “Let’s hope the temperatures start to increase in the coming weeks, as players such as [Filippo] Inzaghi always seem to get firing when the weather is good.

    “With regards to [Alexandre] Pato I saw him running without difficulty all week, and we hope his injury is just a minor resentment and therefore nothing serious,” concluded Galliani.
