tbh how is it he gets a yellow for a handball offence and pellegrini doesn't yet he gets a yellow for something else later on?
Rabiot's handball was a clear yellow. He knew what he was doing there. The ball didn't just hit his hand. He tried to stop the shot. Pellegrini simply wasn't careful. Clear penalty as well, but there was no intention and frankly not much time to put his hand away.

if you asked me pellegrini's hand ball looked every much as intentional as he leaned into the ball

Maybe. I don't remember a hand to ball movement (I might have missed it, though) and the shot came from very close. This gives him the benefit of the doubt. Rabiot's handball was Suarez-like and in some past times when the refs were giving penalty+red, that might have been a first half expulsion.

Someone explained it : If the ball goes towards the goal it's yellow. That's why he got yellow , and Pellegrini didn't.

How can THAT penalty be unluckiness? Its pure dubness. Admit it.
I don;'t have problem with pk , but he should realize he is playing DMF/Regista , and can't loose the ball like that , if he plays box-to-box it's okay to lose the ball , but when you're infront of the defense it's risky .

He’s obviously very talented but he still has a long way to go, still mentally fragile.

Zidane got similar second reds to be fair. he lacks the composure because he wants to win.


Having said that, i reject all general criticism

- Rabiot was by far our best midfielder before subs, for me best juve player first half
- Both his yellow cards where bad and tarnish the opinion people get from his game

- He wont do that all the time. He'll most likely get a good lecture from the coaching team
- Lets semember in a team that wasnt ticking AT ALL, Rabiot was doing a pretty great job


I cant wait to see him with Arthur and Bentacur

Biggest issue with him was the way he just carelessly lost the ball in front of the box that led to the handball. He needs to be smarter than that. Up until that he was doing well. Solid dribbling and fending off Roma players. Not giving up on him. Just a rough night.

With current 2-MF I think it should be Arthur or Benta in the holding and Rabiot or Mckennie in the pressing...

Rabiot has improved a lot so I believe he could be useful but he has to stop jogging around

Iiked him. Sadly he should have been taken out when he was risking so much after the yellow.

But we don't need to judge him so hard. He had a good run of better games

Crucifixing him after one game is just biased agenda
