Rabiot was unreal. The blend of physicality and technique is a rare mix. Would be amazing if he can start stringing a few of these performances together.
He has that weird flow in him. Kind of looks flegmatic and lazy with the ball, but it's so smooth at the same time.

It is a little odd. He looks languid in his approach at times and then pulls off a ridiculously long sprint with the ball at his feet like the one in the first half today and the goal against Milan.
It’s clear that he has a decent engine, but that work rate and desire needs more consistency.

It's not strange but we tend to get better the moment we score our first goal (though our recent results may indicate otherwise) but we always find a way for the opposition to get back in the game through a lapse in concentration/brainfart whatever you want to call it. We were in such control in the second half which makes it so infuriating to see that we almost gave it away yet again. The players do themselves a disservice because I truly liked our performance in the second half but a fuck-up in the back could have potentially nullified all the good we did.

Nevertheless, this pretty much seals it and we can slowely start getting the players fit and ready for Lyon.
Agree, our defender need to be on full concentration so they cannot allow things like that
It just the same feeling when Bonucci handball against Milan, this time we respond better

I think Rabiot has the potential, he has skill. He only need more capable holding midfielder, to make him more ease in defense part of the game and use his energy for more attacking threat

Partially agree. A B2B midfielder should have the engine to go both ways consistently. In saying that he does like getting on his horse and making a hard run up the field which is something we have lacked in midfield for a while. Definitely need this to happen more often and if he can score more that would also help. The one thing we clearly miss from the pirlo Vidal and pogba era is more goals from midfield.

wth is going on with all them penalties you guys and Nazio are getting? :lol:
Everyone's been getting penalties in serie A. One of Genoa and Lecce will be relegated, but they got 15 and 14 penalties respectively (both more than Juve, who got 13). This year, in 34 rounds, there have been 164 penalties. Last year in 38 rounds there were 122 and the year before 120.

It's that handball rule where almost every handball in the penalty area results with a spot kick. For example, Juve got 13 penalties and conceded 11. Of these 24 penalties 11 were handballs (4 in Juve favor, 7 against). Around 40% of the awarded penalties in serie A were handballs, half of which wouldn't have been called normally. That is the main reason why serie A went from the usual 115-125 penalties a season, to 164 with 4 rounds to go.

He's been one of our best players since the restart imo. Actually starting to see the rabiot I saw at psg

well I had to be somewhat be made to look fair.
Badass lets not exaggerate!!! Many coaches like Bonucci including Guardiola. He is more a Scirea, Baresi type of defender . He is not a Chiellini. He is more a defensive playmaker. In this forum there is to much whining . Every defender makes mistakes, like every attacker misses goals. Look what Ronaldo missed yesterday, an open header.
Bonucci is not my favorite defender, but he does some good things too. In the beginning there was constant whining of some people here about De Ligt. Last year some many here wanted to sell Dybala, for them he was worthless. A player plays bad a game or even a season and there go the complaints. To many here do not look a the game and the team. Now all most every body wants Allegri back, but what did he do the year before, he was the biggest problem putting players out of position and so on.
Bonucci has his place in Juve he has as defender certain qualities most defenders do not have.
