    Douglas Costa

    If his absence left a huge void, then that means his top form is good. So keep him and rehabilitate. Don't panic sell. Just take away car keys and stuff.

    Douglas Costa

    He didn't play enough to affect us as negatively as Bonucci did. Bonucci played almost as many minutes as Ronaldo and he sucked for most of those minutes so that's a big negative. Costa had a more disappointing season for me since I expect nothing from Bonucci. But because Costa assaulted...

    Douglas Costa

    Narrator: And so the hypothesis has been confirmed. The comparisons continue to forge on between a striker and a midfielder when the possibility exists for the two to play together. An odder feud has never existed than one between a 6 foot Croatian battering ram and a stout, quick lolzillian.

    Douglas Costa

    I think Costa is viewed as an attacking player and so he should pour goals and assists. Really, he is a midfielder. Anyone on our team who plays the opposite side of Ronaldo is a midfielder. First priority is to hold the defensive shape and second is to bring the ball forward from their own...

    Look how much time Ajax gives him on the ball. The whole game stops when he gets possession. Surely that brings value to the team when you are getting pressed to dust the whole game and you can just play a 5 metre ball to this guy and press pause and catch a breath. Of course it helps when he...

    Make sure to bench at home when Ajax will have to come forward and leave tons of space for him to exploit. Please make sure to bench him for literally his optimal playing scenario. Thanks.

    It's not necessarily creating as much as simply transporting the ball up the field. I think that was always ignored. As we are seeing now, it takes some sort of miracle to just dribble the ball up the pitch. Whereas with Costa, he would beat 2 or 3 players in his own 3rd and allow all these...

    I don't really see the issue of going to Neymar's birthday party. He can do whatever he wants in his free time right? Was he drunk when he crashed or did he turn up late to training or something? The issue is just that he had a car crash but still went to Neymar's party? A proper lolzillian...

    Douglas Costa

    His ability is taken for granted. Not many players possess the ability to just take the ball, run through the other team and shoot it in the net. Completely independent of any teammates. I think if other players scored this goal today, the reaction would be greater. The common thought might...

    Ya it was just a joke pertaining to the age old board meme that Pjanic stat pads by shooting PKs in the past. I said he was right all along to shoot them without guilt because even winning a PK isn't acknowledged anywhere (when obviously it should be an assist - without it the PK is not...

    So this is why Pjanic padded those stats all these years. Not even winning a penalty should be acknowledged. Just the guy who shoots it in the net.

    Douglas Costa

    Well he's played so little that his stats don't have a chance to normalize. Using Transfermarkt data to eliminate variables: Last year - 2912 minutes, 20 goals + assists = 145 mins every goal + assist This year - 632 minutes , 2 assists = 316 mins every goal + assist. But if for example he...

    Douglas Costa

    I tell you what. If we had someone like Costa to carry the ball through the other team and pass to another Costa who is by himself, fully rested, just waiting to for the ball outside the area, that would be a good team. Instead he is playing beside Khedira RCM and MDS RB. Just laughable...

    Douglas Costa

    I would agree if he wasn't the one constantly breaking the midfield lines. You say he's not a midfielder but he's doing the midfielders' job. If he's sat there up top waiting for service then I agree with you but he's not. And today he had the shot that allowed Kean to score and an offside goal...

    Douglas Costa

    Ya I completely agree. I don't really see this final 3rd stuff people complain about. Usually he just passes sideways in a safe manner, it's not like you see him shooting into the stands constantly. If anything he should probably shoot more. But the ability to just carry the ball through the...

    I still think Costa is an amazing player.

    Douglas Costa

    He has 4 starts this year and I don't even think he's reached 500 minutes. I have no idea what people are evaluating, he doesn't play.
