Nothing in what you quoted suggests I'm taking this personally. No, I don't "love" Pedro and I never have. He's not remotely a useless player used that way. Again, you should watch him play some time. I never said labeling someone a utility players should be deemed as negative. I'm disputing your label of him being one when he isn't for the most part nor should he be. Pedro is useless compared to Willian? OK. Chelsea don't have too many Pedros. They need to revamp the side a bit, but they don't have too many Pedros. Players you're labeling as other Pedros, like Cesc, aren't other Pedros. The fact of the matter is from the fact of how they both played at Barça where Sanchez wasn't easily the superior player. This season isn't even a comparison because once again he plays less. That being said it's not like Sanchez is lighting things up this season. Give Pedro Sanchez's minutes and it looks pretty clear he puts up about as many goals and assists this season. Also, Pedro's role isn't too carry the load. That said, as I pointed out, he put the numbers he did despite your characterization of him being a "scrub", "awful buy", "BxB player not possessing the skill needed", etc. As for Sanchez and Ozil, carrying the loads throughout decades? Where exactly have they carried Arsenal? Out of the CL? My argument is backed up by facts. You've simply come up with labels that are completely wrong and you've also slated him at Barça as well. To say Willian has been better is highly debatable. I'd say at times he has been, but it's pretty even. Last season however, when Chelsea won the league and made it to the FA Cup Final, Pedro was better. That last two matches Chelsea weren't playing with a true striker for one. Second, Willian also happened to playing against Watford. Laying Chelsea's problems at the feet of Pedro is as hilarious as it is stupid. It's not a useless stat if it's in a bigger match and a player delivers multiple times in their career. Bayern are irrelevent and don't change the fact that United were also a good side that season. We were better, sure, but we were also better than Bayern. I am willing to try and understand where someone is coming from as much as anyone else. The problem is what you're posting is coming from presumably you're uniformed opinion and you keep posting nonsense that isn't even true. Obvious reasons, yet you mentioned de Bruyne anway... Sterling? He cost well more than double what Pedro cost and until this season wasn't outperforming Pedro. That's not to mention how Sterling would have slotted into Chelsea last season. Martial would have better? Another player who cost more than double and who last season for example didn't outplay Pedro and who in his first season played a lot more minutes. Draxler? A player who cost more than 50% more than Pedro and who hasn't been as good since then. Costa again cost more, his since been loaned out and hasn't delivered more than Pedro. Son again cost more and hasn't really delivered much more if anything than Pedro. Perisic cost less, but he's not necessarily delivered much more either. So to sum it up, you're answer is players who weren't an option, players who cost a lot more, and players don't perform as well or only as well. Yet you keep saying they need to get rid of Pedro, he's a scrub, he was an awful buy, etc and yet now you're saying you wouldn't have a problem with them keeping him. You have zero basis about Turan being considered competition. If you have something post it. Very clear that wasn't the case. He would have had some minutes with Neymar getting injured, but yes his minutes would have been limited. So would Sanchez's. Yeah, and those aren't "dime-a-dozen" players. You can see my reply above for the rest of it. No, his main position isn't LW. He does play there, but throughout his career he's played more on the right. Even this season Whoscored says his time between those two flanks has been evenly split. By all means cite a source to demonstrate your "facts" that he's exclusively a left-sided player. It's a completely fair comparison because it's in response to you saying Pedro "lacks skill and creativity when it comes to scoring goals." And take goals out of it and look at assists. I would say assists are in part at least down to creativity. Ozil is an apt argument even though it doesn't suit you. My team would kick the crap out of your team for years and years. A couple of years down the road your team won't be winning World Cups (???). You lost both the battle and the war. You've got a lot of young players who still have a lot to prove and who quite frankly don't look at this stage as though they'll be much if at all better than my younger players. And like I said, my team fits much better together than yours does. Much better. LOL at the Pedro comments. So you can't compare Pedro and Ozil in a discussion about skill and creativity when it comes to scoring goals and yet you can compare Dahoud and Pedro? Young and rebellious or just young and stupid? Also I already pointed out, nowhere 99.9% of them are developing in an upward trajectory. LOL. All you've done is spout your opinion which has been quite amusing.
