Am i the only one that despite all our problems with midfield do not miss Pjanić at all?
I actually almost forgot he played for us.
i don't miss him specifically. he slowed down a lot lately, and he never was too quick to begin with.

we'd still need someone who can run the show day in day out, and pjanic was able to do that consistently for 3,5 years. a reliable bentancur would be nice to have, but yesterday he had an other stinker. arthur, our supposed pjanic replacement is simply underwhelming, 2 very good matches (cagliari, barcelona) out of 10 starts is nothing for someone with his price tag and wages.

No, you are not the only. one. I don't miss him one bit despite being better than all our options at the moment. But go back one or two phases prior to Pjanic and that's where you find my heart.

Wonder when we'll start hearing rumors about him coming back to Italy, like the rest of our former players? With how things are going in Barcelona I won't be surprised if he's wearing a Milan jersey in 6 months.

Difficult for Barca to move him. With his wages and the transfer fee they paid for him, they'd likely be making a huge loss on any sale.

Didnt know this guy is doing so bad at Barca, he moaned that he dont know why he doesnt play to french newspaper and Im now reading comments from Barca fans on him. There is literally not even one positive comment on him - they are all bashing him and cant see any good point in his play. Did anyone watch him there? Is he really that bad? Feel bad for him, because he is a likeable guy and we could really use him in our current midfield. Last season was bad, but he is really good midfielder.

Hasn't been a good midfielder for at least 3 years now. He's finished.

He's still a good specialist midfielder, but he has to be used to his strengths. Put him in a team like Roma and I"m sure he'll considerably raise their level, current Barca just doesn't suit him, too many wizards on the ball and not enough runners in that team.
