    He will eventually end up as a B2B. The progression down the pecking order of attack is slow and steady.

    I'm not going to make excuses for his lack of product in the final 3rd. Even as a winger, doing less running, it was lacking.

    From what I've seen with Sarri: First, the defensive shape if we are actually forced into a low block is going to be 4-4-2. So he has to come back beside Pjanic. Now, in matches like against Bologna, it was actually really rare that we even got into that low block as our first action was...

    I think he's better as a CAM than winger. Probably even better as a LCM. Possibly better than Rabiot in that position because he will get in the box more and transition quicker. At this point, his best attribute is running around like a spaz, which is useful for what Sarri wants in the...

    Eventually it will happen.

    I think that problem hurts him everywhere to be honest.

    I think his acceleration is maybe average or slightly above. Not like Costa. But he can maintain top speed and run the entire pitch. I think he has everything to play CM lol. His end product would certainly be more acceptable if he was a CM and not a main attacking outlet at the wing.

    ffs Costa is winning his place by virtue of not even playing

    I swear he looks better when he touches the ball anywhere but at RW. Put him in Matuidi's position.

    Bad end to the season.

    This is what you get with a player like Bernardeschi. A player with huge balls that believes in himself. On the first assist, he could play it wide to the open man or go for the fucking kill and aim for Ronaldo with a very difficult pass. And it works. On the PK, he could play the ball back in...

    Finally played CM. Managed to make all the same sideways passes as Khedira. Didn't fuck up defensively. The bonus from him was he created his own chances. Unfortunately he missed. I don't see how he can't play in this position if everything was fine defensively.

    It should be Dybala + Bernardeschi. We've had 2 years to figure this out.

    Shot on goal from centre of the field. Pass to Ronaldo from centre of the field. Almost pass to Mandzukic from centre of the field. In 10 minutes. Maybe in the 2 years he was with the club try him in the centre of the field just in case you run up against Atletico Madrid in the CL. Or play...

    He was more than B2B in that 2nd half yesterday. Looked like he was playing that old 4-3-1-2 CAM position that Vidal played. Because when he was coming back into that midfield bank of 4 to defend, he was rarely on the flank. So he was doing a lot of running to hold the defensive shape but then...

    He had the ball a lot more centrally with Fiorentina and also in more open play as they face less tightly compacted defences. I don't know how he has become a strict touch line winger for Allegri. I don't know if his characteristics are perfect to play as a strict wide player against tight...

    Put on field. I don't care if half the passes he makes go out of bounds, the other half go in the net.

    Should have comfortably had 2 assists to Dybala. I think the run he made with the attempted pass to Mario was made a lot harder by Mario's run, which was a bit strange and going against Berna's momentum. Made him look bad there. But this is one of the first matches we've seen him play inside...

    Didn't pass to Ronaldo and shot it in the net himself, the madman.
