There was a video Juve's official account posted recently with Tek's save on Mkhitaryan vs Roma. Bonucci did an ass tackle supreme there. Can't find it now, they probably had to take it down because of that.

Not even a Bonucci fan but the guy had the best 9 on the planet in his pocket today and not one mention of it. Meanwhile check the Demiral thread out or search his name on twitter lol. Funny shit.
Bonucci overall is a very good defender - He was a defender who could mark and tackle but then make mistakes that cost his team goals - Then he improved and in 2017 he even improved but then he went to Milan and its like all the hard work is needed again only that Bonucci is not young anymore.

He could really mark a player and make some crucial interventions but then he will miss a header or ass tackle someone.
I really hope Demiral and De Ligt could soon be added to our first 11 and push Bonucci out (Im saying it as Chiellini can play the LCB role better than Bonucci due to him also being able to play LB).

I can’t see Demiral benching Bonucci, as Bonucci is too important in the build up offensively. Demiral to me is Chiellinis backup/competition.

I think de Ligt has the best shot, but that would require Pirlo to ignore all biases. And it’s still tbd what Bonucci were gonna get this season. He was great against Sampdoria and looked great again yesterday.

I would say he is underrated here at Tuz but the thing is he makes some crucial mistakes - He is similar to MDL in terms of position but if you take Chiellini vs Demiral it means we still have Danilo which means we still need one more CB.
It is still unknown as to who are going to be our 3 CB in case all are healthy but if I need to take a guess - Bonucci and MDL are going to start with Chiellini as LCB which means we dont get Demiral as a starter yet but we are getting Danilo out.

Danilo (or at least the version we’ve seen of him so far) is a better fit for RCB than any of the other CBs though, because defensively he’s still the best fit at RB and he can also go forward and get involved offensively, which seems to be a requirement for Pirlo. I can’t see him getting benched if he plays like he has so far.

So ideally we’d have something like

RCB- Danilo
CB- De Ligt
LCB- Chiellini or Demiral

Is he really? It's only been two games under Pirlo so maybe we'll see, but i don't know what he does that De Ligt can't. Perhaps send some nice long passes but so far we don't play like that anymore

I’d argue hes more important now than he was under Sarri.

he’s almost an extra mid. Definitely vital to build up, and breaking lines. But De Ligt is good for that role as well, and he’s a superior defender, so Pirlo will have an interesting decision to make.
