How long does president of AC Milan, Mr. Silvio Berlusconi, have to realize that his "toy" can't compete with other European giants in Champions League?

Once again, Milan showed poor football, this time against really young Ajax team and they can be definitely happy with the draw. 

Sure, Ajax wasn't in Champions League group stage for five years and they didn't have a good start into the new Champions League season, as they lost to Real Madrid.

But, Ajax fans can definitely be proud of their young and very motivated team because they showed great football against "old" Milan players.

AJAX  vs MILAN    1-1

El Hamdaoui 23’ 

Suarez passed through Nesta easily on the left side of the box where he assisted to El Hamdaoui, who turned brilliantly in a crowded box and fired into the roof  of the net.      

Ibrahimovic 37’

Great counter attack led by Seedorf, who raced down the right, knocking it across to Ibrahimovic and the ex-Ajax man took it on the chest before kung-fu kicking it into the right side of goal.

I really can't say anything good for Milan today. They tried and tried but they really look terrible as a team on the field.

So many unsuccessful passes from Gattuso, who should seriously think about moving to another club and stop crying how he isn't in the starting lineup.

Robinho had a great chance to score, but he failed. He should seriously be more concentrated on football and stop with parties, because that is definitely not helping.

Antonini was also really poor. Antonini and Gattuso should not be in Milan starting lineup.

I guess all this talking about pensioners in Milan are true. Also, we saw the terrible late substitutes that Milan coach Allegri did.

He was supposed to unleash great Ronaldinho and try to get all three points but no, he was happy with the draw. I just have a question for him: Where was our main weapon, Ronaldinho?

Allegri showed poor tactical skills in this match and I can just hope that Milan will start with great football and of course with winning. He also showed that he isn't ready for a big club like Milan.

As for Ajax, I can just congratulate them because they definitely deserved to win this match. They had more ball possession and a lot of great chances to score.

Mr. Berlusconi, I also hope that you will finally realize that Milan need new players! Young players who can RUN and HELP this club to win new trophies, especially Serie A, because we have'nt see that one since 2004.

I don't know how you can watch this misery that Milan has shown in the past two seasons.

In the other match of Group G, Real Madrid came out as a winner over Auxerre thanks to a late goal by the young Argentinean, Di Maria.
