What the shit are you talking about? Costa provided no threat all season. He was creating zilch.

Mandzu has 3 assists in the last couple months, so that’s hardly nothing. He also was fantastic winning balls just two games ago against Milan, helping close out that win. Add in his bicycle kick that forced a great save from Reina, and the pass he squared to Kean for a great chance in the box when it was still 1-1. Hardly nothing.

But yes, Mario has been poor. But Mario has 3 years of fantastic clutch performances in big matches for Juventus behind his name... Costa has 4 great months to finish last season, and a disastrous 7 months to start this year. Of course he’s going to get bashed, we all had high expectations for him.

Sandro is bashed easily as often for his poor form. Khedira is bashed 10x more. Dybala is bashed all the time right now. And so is Mandzu contrary to your opinion, even if a few of us generally defend him. It’s not some exclusive bashing of “poor Costa” thing.
Man is Amauri back?

Hope he recovers in time for next game or the next round. We badly need him in Europe.
He has some unique qualities that non of our players poses.
Against teams that Press us badly he is the best weapon we have. Without him we will suffer again.

Forza Flash.he has been joy to watch these past 2 years. Hope we keep him for more years to come <3

Why does every player need to be starting material? What can't players be a special sort of weapon against specific teams?

Can Juventus not have players to pay against smaller teams?

The attitude here is that if a player isnt good enough for first team starting position then he must be sold.

Juventus needs depth. And Costa is a good weapon to have for depth and could ter attacking football.

Doesnt excuse his form but seems memebrs expect every player to be world class all the time even if they bench. Too much video games has warped your minds

Also. Short memories. Many voted him mvp last season. Lets not write him off just like that.

He could have helped us to make something out of nothing, we badly needed a true Winger and unpredictably.

Having him would've taking the pressure of in the second half just like the first leg.
His attributes are very valuable against this kind of opposition.
Imagine costa playing some part in our next serie A match...

Meh. He wrecked his own season. This should have been a fantastic season building on his scintillating last 4 months of last season, instead he threw a tantrum on the pitch, attacked and spat on a player, fell badly out of form for 6 months, got injured, wrecked his car... it’s almost as though he was cursed this year, everything went wrong for him.

Still, if he shows out for the next month, I’d be happy to keep him for next season and hope he gets off to a better start, playing like he did in 2017-18. It was the best form of his career, and coincidentally under Allegri, who Neddy hates lol
