lol totally forgot that he not only caused the handball, but he was also responsible before - his clumsy try of passing caused the shot. Also McKennie looked completely lost in this situation. Both our starting midfielders looked like a kids in this game.

Yeah he had a bad game, but surprisingly better than his partner despite the glaring errors. As long as it's a one-off game after a series of good performances I still see him as an important figure for the balance of the team.

I know a lot of people want to see more of Arthur and Bentancur in midfield, including myself, but Rabiot offers physical presence and quality in midfield.

Perhaps his worst performance for Juventus, and that says a whole lot.

Superb layoff with his heel for the Roma striker, a yellow card and penalty to correct his mistake AND a red card straight out of Sully Muntari's greatest hits.

Going for opponent's leg when clearly can't win the ball back while on a yellow and the ref was right there seeing everything. If he could be calmer and not jogging when the team being attacked, he would be great.

ITs funny on this forum, once he was bashed every game, when he wasnt that shit. This game he was responsible for a penalty and red card, while also jogging in other situations yet people defend him now. He was shit and few good actions where he protected the ball well wont change it. I cvant see how McKennie can be see as a worse player in this game, its Rabiot who made most of the costly errors.

He still looks like our most capable midfielder. He just needed to ease on those tackles. Partner him with Arthur, and that would be a very solid double pivot. McKennie can play against lesser teams, but against teams that will press the midfield hard, Arthur, Rabiot, Bentancur are the best options.

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
Arthur and Rabiot as a duo would be very strong in possession.

I don't know what to make of this guy one year after his transfer. He clearly lacks the attacking instinct and/or movement to be a B2B midfielder hence his 1 goal and 0 assists in an entire season but he also lacks the tackling skills, creativity and reading of the game to be a DM. Maybe he just isn't good enough..

I do not consider any of our midfielders to have shown they are worthy of a starting spot in Juve. I am not impressed with anything they have shown so far.
Arthur Melo and Weston are new but neither of them excites me much. I looked at Melo yesterday and as if I was looking at Pjanic.
I have enjoyed watching so many great midfielders play for Juve and most of them impressed me the first time I watched them. The current crop seems to excel at nothing. Nothing makes them special. No speed, vision. skills, energy, determination...Just bang average at most things, decent at some, and outright awful at the rest.
TBF only Dybala and in form Costa, Cuad, and Morata excite me in this Juve.

Ronaldo, Chiellini, De Ligt, Szczesny, Kulusevski don’t excite you?

Let me flip over my pockets and let’s see if Kdb pops out for free.
