    Weston McKennie

    Indeed. He's rough around the edges. Liable to fluff a pass, or run in people's way which he did once or twice against Cagliari. He's definitely not a bit afraid to tackle. Some of his tackles have been unreal - types of tackles few players would commit to. But I do wonder whether he's going to...

    [Serie A] Juventus 2-0 Cagliari [November 21st, 2020]

    Romero is looking really good at the moment too.

    Dejan Kulusevski

    He's skilful in an awkward kind of way. He's very unpredictable. Only issue he has is that he occasionally tends to lose the ball from under him. The one thing he has on Dybala in a big way is his physical presence. Fairly tall, looks strong and he's very pacy.

    [Serie A] Juventus 2-0 Cagliari [November 21st, 2020]

    Very impressive work rate from everyone on the pitch. I was surprised at how hard everyone worked off the ball. You couldn't fault anyone today. Everyone put in a shift and showed really good understanding with their passing. De Ligt and Demiral (but especially De Ligt) are the better...

    Arthur

    Great defensive effort. He worked and fought really hard off the ball. It's amazing how he doesn't seem to have more than a 50 yard pass in him but his ability to hold the ball and find a teammate so close to our goal makes a big difference to how the team can play. No more bombing it down the...

    [Serie A] Lazio 1-1 Juventus [November 8th, 2020]

    I don't think Bernardeschi did much wrong all round. In the second last minute he was trying to take the ball to corner flag and Dybala completely fluffed it. In fact, almost all of Dybala's touches and passes were either mistakes or wrong choices. Bernadeschi did what was basically required of him.

    Adrien Rabiot

    Good technique but physically he looks extremely imposing. Height, strength, speed. He reads the ball well too with some great interceptions. As unexciting a pairing as he and Bentancur made, they were super solid.

    Alvaro Morata

    Real center-forward play. Makes a massive difference.

    Gianluca Frabotta

    Even in his cameo today he managed to show a bit. He's impressed me at least from his performances this season.

    Weston McKennie

    He's dynamic like Matuidi but he's not a nufty. Does remind you a bit of Vidal but Vidal was absolutely world class as soon as he arrived.

    Federico Chiesa

    No doubt. It's because he doesn't have a clean style. His dribbling is a bit ugly and haphazard. They can go either way but, then again, so do most dribbles and not least Douglas Costa's or Bernardeschi's who are those 'clean' looking type of players. He is like Pepe with much more skill. I...

    [Serie A] Spezia 1-4 Juventus [November 1st, 2020]

    Definitely agree about the 3 in midfield. Our mids are, relatively speaking, pretty weak as a group and we don't have wide players that justify making the compromise either ala Robben and Ribery (Bayern played 2 mids in between them right? :rolleyes2:). If Arthur insists on only making 10 metre...

    Alvaro Morata

    So good to hear he's hit the ground running. Do you reckon he's improved at all since he was last at Juve? E.g, has he broken that habit of not being able to look up when he has the ball? He's always had the makings of a top, top striker. Hopefully he'll find consistency for once and realise...

    [CL] Dynamo Kiev 0-2 Juventus [October 20th, 2020]

    Word. Keen to watch it later. Especially to see how the newcomers are fairing and how Rabiot is developing as well.

    [CL] Dynamo Kiev 0-2 Juventus [October 20th, 2020]

    Only caught the last 10 minutes. We looked under siege.

    Federico Chiesa

    Who knows. He could turn out to be a rich man's Krasic or he could become the new Nedved. He's that sort of player though - direct, powerful, dynamic but not particularly fancy. Whether those kind of players become world class or end up getting found out has a lot to do with their intelligence...

    Arthur

    You'd just be silly to write him off so soon. New league, new club, still quite young. I know almost nothing about the guy save a few highlight reels. He doesn't seem to me at all like a regista. What I was expecting was that he'd play on either side of a three-man midfield and play an...

    Bit light though. You'd want one extra mid that's half decent if not a real headache causer for Pirlo. The reference point is that golden midfield era 6-7 years ago. We had Marchisio who was one of the best bench options you could've had and then eventually left Allegri with no choice but to...

    Don't know about him. I'm pretty out of the loop outside Serie A and the teams we faced in CL frankly.

    What was that nonsense about his paying for himself in kit sales :lol: has that hackneyed argument ever been properly substantiated?
