    I've been saying since his Metz days, when nobody here knew him, that Pjanic was a great talent but would never be a go to player in tight situations because he fears contact. He bottles under physical pressure.

    Who here rates him other than D2M though? Half the board thinks he sucks apparently. I mean he won't even start for Liverpool much less mightiest club.

    Would be great to see Juventus out this early and watch Ronaldo get a red card in the return leg if they can't win.

    Most of the board thinks he's a talented player who hasn't put it together and could maybe never put it together at all. He could still realize his potential, we all hope he does.

    You're the one that thinks it's all Allegri's fault and that he's some kind of uber player. So of course people will say he's overrated.
    But just like cgf about some german players, it's only you overrating him.

    So, is Icardi I guess. Clearly Argentina made the right decision in playing Higuain over him... considering they smashed France 4-3 before finally beating Croatia in the final. With Pipita scoring a brace.

    It's 5 goals you needed. 5-4 is what you should dream of.

    He was what top 5 in Balon D'or voting in 2017? I think Juve's natural defensive system holds him back offensively much like Hazard in Chelsea. Allgeri holds him back because he refuses to play him his natural position. He has put it together you don't score that much in the Serie A without doing something right. How is he overrated if only one guy is pumping his tires? Show of hands of who's actually watching these games. Trust it's not Pouch,Cassano, SEPH or some other random ass.

    NO no 4-3 is a sufficient scoreline for this genius Argentina team that left him on the bench.

    Higuain is still better than them, especially your man-crush Dybala.

    Dybala is so average he would be a perfect choice for Arsenal since we don't have the funds to buy super awesomers like Icardi. Just wait until he goes to Barca or Real and smashes Ronaldo's scoring record.

    In a couple of years he'll play in China. After having failed at another big club.

    How many games have you watched either play?

    Woof this just gets better and better. Sadly, I have more pressing matters than just laughing at your opinions.

    I think Allegri criticism is valid and could explain why guys like Dybala and Costa are struggling this year.

    You have Ronaldo, Dybala, Costa, Cuadrado, Mandzukic, Bernadeschi and a bunch of other top fwd talents and you set up to play not to win. It's a disgrace.

    He gave Atletico too much respect, especially when Simeone was always going to counterattack like he always does.

    Higuain is a fat oaf. He scored two goals against Huddersfield that made everyone overreact, but he isn't good anymore.

    Just like cgf. You said his german prospects were overrrated, but it was just one poster.
    No, he hasn't put it together. Plenty of players go on a scoring rampage and then disappear. Heck, your own nemsis Pipita broke a Serie A scoring record.
    And it's not as if he was shining with Argentint while being stiffled with Juve.
    Right now, he's failing, regardless of the numerous coaches with Juve and NT.
    Maybe he'll get out of his funk because the talent is there. Next summer will be decisive for him. He'll likely move and he needs playing time and it's make or break for him.

    52 goals in 81 games 0.69 goal ratio. He hasn't gone an a extreme hot streak or anything crazy this is over the course of the last 3 seasons with Juve playing out of position most of the time. So...

    Some players just doesn't have what it takes to be at their best in big moments. They can be very good players despite that. Dybala is a good player and scores fine goals against the likes of Spal, Frosinone, Cagliari etc. But great players scores when it matters the most. That's the difference between good players and great players. Dybala will never be great.

    I had the pleasure of watching Higuaín for a game on Tuesday night. If that's what 35 million buys you nowadays the game's ****ed.
