No wonder,

Pogba is a hasvbeen. almost retirement material.
Indeed, unfortunately.

Ronaldo, Chiellini, De Ligt, Szczesny, Kulusevski don’t excite you?
Ronaldo is a stat-padder - plays for himself.
Kulu - I am still not convinced. Got lost in the last game.
De light- Meh, it is not worth 80 mill based on the last year's form. Hot and cold, some great tackles, and two minutes later - two meters away from a ball in the box that should have been his.
Chiellini - yes, excites me for the 3-4 games he is available during the season.
Szczesny - Nope.



In form, Morata and Cuad are top notch players. Cuad is especially underated but he is one of the most skillful players in Seria A. He is getting old and has largely been played out of position since forever.

Rabiot and Bentancur are tidy players who work hard defensively, but neither are creators and neither are amazing in the final third of the pitch.

What we need is a Nedved style player. One who has lots of energy but can also make shit happen in the final third. De Bruyne is probably the closest thing to Nedved today.

Lol this isn’t 2015. Cuads is useful but hardly a “top notch player.” Ditto Morata.

Arthur is best suited as a deep lying playmaker
Chiesa is a winger/wingback

:kulu: can definitely be that guy
Kulu has those qualities, I don’t doubt it. Nedved was way more explosive than he was, but Nedved arrived in his late 20’s while Kulu just became 20. There’s still a lot of room to grow. But having Kulu and knowing that he has a lot of work rate, improving those aspects would be a massive win for us. Hopefully we won’t destroy him as RWB, we need him as a AM in this formation.

I watched way more Parma games than I wanted to last season, as well as Sweden this season, and really Kulusevski is at his best closer to goal rather than on the wing. Against Sampdoria he was technically a forward but watching the game and seeing his heat map, he really was more of an AM alongside Ramsey. He’s got great instincts, he’s tailor made for that role. If he sticks there, he might lead serie A in assists.

very little happens with them because there is no movement from the team. they dont have a guy to pass to. Its always a pass to wing back who then tries to hustle or pass it back to CB.
Regarding Rabiot he was still bad for me, not in the good shape still, I think he is our best mid but he needs to step up. Good thing is that he wins every header but Arthur or Ramsey should collect those won balls, instead we lost many of them.

Rabiot has become irreplaceable on this squad. A mixture of very good performances and a lack of physicality in the park’s middle. Would like a bit more offensive contributions, but quite a good player rn.
