    he assisted higuain, launched like 4-5 attacking moves, ran like crazy, and actually defended, unlike khedira. it wasn't his best game, his passing let him down (mainly due to the spurs pressing), but i wouldn't call that a $#@!ty performance.

    Needs to be surrounded with energetic midfielders or he's a liability

    Unfortunately we have Matuidi and that's it. And by unfortunate I mean we're cheap $#@!s.

    He needs to up his game. It's rare you see him pull balls like that and yet Eriksson made it look so easy.

    We surrounded Pirlo with Pogba and Vidal, yet the poor sod has to play with the likes of Khedira.

    this.

    And he needs not one but 2 decent tacklers who can run their lungs out for him.

    Until that happens...we are really gating his potential

    That much is obvious every time we face decent opposition.

    Anyway, it sure is weird how a supposedly great player only shines when the conditions are perfect for him.

    Can't expect him to play good if his partner in midfield is Khedira in a CL game against an English side.

    How often does Pjanic get into those areas in open play? He's a deeper midfielder now.

    Pirlo also needed the midfield build around him, doesn’t make him any less great.

    this.

    its a matter of improving what he has around him...and let him attack and assist... not play as a DM and build up from buffon area.

    You're absolutely right. Pirlo did need the midfield built around him.
    And Pirlo was definitely a great player.

    Shame Pjanic isn't. At least not for me.

    Yeah, Pjanic is $#@!.

    Khedira rocks.

    Stururu also.

    Pirlo had Gatusso for Italy and Milan and Vidal for Juve. Pjanic is really good but lacks the fighter in the centre.

    Holding Pjanic to Pirlo's standard is a bit unfair imo. No one would come out of this comparison looking good
    Hist: 1 decent starter, 1 worldclass, 1 bench, 2 out
    Post Ironic: 0 World class 2 decent-good starters. 1 bench player.
    DelPiero84: 3 world class, 2 bench.
    Zizinho: 2 world class, 1 very good starter and the rest for bench.
    Quetzalcoatl: 1 world class, 1 good starter, 2 bench and Staruro out.
    Alex Juventino: 2 World Class, 2 decent starters and 1 bench
    IgorTudor: 0 world class, 2 good starters, 3 bench
    ADP1897: 1 World Class, One good starter, and 3 Bench

    Matuidi

    Unfortunately the third midfielder in our 433 is our biggest weakness. We have a lazy useless tree, a permanent hospital patient, a 20 year old kid, or a guy who isn’t even a professional footballer.

    I still feel like he is a technically quality yet mentally weak player. Doesn't show up enough in the really tough moments.

    Too long at Roma can do that.

    Still, playing alongside Khedira in these two legs much have been a real chore, they both severely lack pace, and it was magnified by not having properly fit strikers to take some of the load off.
