People talking about scrubs like Thiago, Pogba, Verratti. But here is the real deal. 19 year old future Xavi on steroids midfielder Oliver Torres, currently on loan at Villarreal from Atletico who will gladly bend over and sell him to Barca when the time is right.



His first game for Villarreal after a dislocated shoulder injury. :bow:


Inb4 Arq's opinions don't matter in this thread. He jelly because Oliver >>>>> any Basque midfielder ever. :coffee:

freecat's opinion doesn't matter either. He mad because Oliver >>>>> Catalan scrubs like Sergi Fraudberto.

A raw talent though too rough around the edges right now. Been a fan since he played in Spain's Under 19's a couple of years ago, perhaps not on par with Thiago and Isco but certainly impressed me more than the overly hyped Denis Suárez.

I would like him to play more centrally once he is more experienced. He has the technique and vision to do it, but he needs to learn how to adjust the tempo because right now he is too quick to move the ball forward.

Looks far more like Modric than Xavi in playing style. Let's see how he develops in any case.

I like the way he looks on the ball, but I agree right now he's too quick to move the ball forward and doesn't look to be making the best decisions. Not only is this an attribute he must learn in general (patience, better decision making), but he'll need it in bundles at Barca if he comes. These are skills that will come with age and experience, however. I like the look of him. He seems to have good dribbling ability and technique, and looks to have the vision too. Really I need to watch more of him before I can properly judge though. I'm making these statements on that 4 min vid Laughing

There were heavy rumours that Barca got first preference on him when they did the Villa deal with Atletico.

*Watches the video expecting something.

*lots of dribling and a lot of astray passes. Two good passes.

You can just see in that video why I don't like him, hogging the ball and making only one good pass while tens of passes go wrong.

And against probably the worst team in the league. I have not been that impressed by him and the video doesnt really help either.

The video was not supposed to highlight a "special" match from him. It's just him playing for his new team for the first time as a substitute after a 6 week injury-layoff. I'm going to post his match videos in this thread if I can find them.

He's been overhyped beyond the distance of his current propensity as aside from his dribbles I've set to see anything of concrete note from him that convices me he won't be another failed Atlético prospect.
