Are we going to act like you weren't the only Alba defender in the Barca section once upon a time? You weren't a fanboy, but I do remember you being the only one defending him. Laughing

You and Dani had many debates about him, not as much regarding Alves, but he was quite the topic of discussion. You've changed your tone in the past year or two, which is okay obviously, but let's not act like you didn't post gems like this:

I struggle to think of what Alba does right other than being fast and overlapping.

lmao Go back to the Milan game last season. Prevented a certain goal from Bojan and sealed the quarter final ticket with an amazing sprint towards the end. Had the most interceptions against City from any player on the pitch, including a vital interception where Negredo would have been clear on goal. Didn't set a foot wrong (did Navas play? I don't remember).

"Fast and overlapping". Pls stahp. His linkup play with Iniesta and generally amazing performances during the Euros must have escaped you. Laughing



Abidal was awful for most of his Barca career btw. His offensive game in particular was criticized a lot. Robben took him apart in a game in which Barca totally dominated (yes, he managed to be FOTM in a 6-2 victory Laughing). Shortly after he got sent off against Chelsea. 09/10 he missed most of the season injured. Didn't make much of a difference replacing him with Maxwell, won 2-0 in the Bernabeu anyway with a complete makeshift defense. Only stepped it up in his 30s. In 10/11 he played his best ever season. Shortly after he suffered cancer and managed to come back and lift the CL trophy. That's where the fond memories come from. He wasn't that Maldini-esque rock people portray him as now. Couldn't deal with Özil at all in 11/12. Won't even talk about his adaptation problems prior to Pep. Laughing

Honest question is this still how you view Abidal?

This is why I'm the 2nd most objective man on the Internet. Proud Alba isn't great but some of the criticism he received ("Adriano better than him", let's be real for a minute) was way over the top at one point so I defend him with my supreme objectivity. It also came during a time when Alves was God awful yet people like Dani kept quiet about it so I had to be vocal (I mean even more vocal than my usual disagreements with Dani Proud). He is still an "okay" fullback all things considered, mostly because there aren't many special leftbacks in world football right now but if I could I would definitely trade him for someone else. As I said: lack of alternatives. Alaba and Marcelo aren't available.

Abidal? Abidal only really got it together in his latter years and as a centerback. In 10/11 he was our best defender. Then he got ill, came back to lift the CL trophy, got ill again and then went into retirement. A great last season coupled with an iconic moment mixed with the tragedy of his illness made sure that he's remembered as a GOAT but overall he wasn't actually that special. Mind you, still 10 times the player that Alba is. Especially his composure on the ball.

Defensively Marcelo is on par with Alba but in every other aspect, he's better.

Calling yourself the 2nd most objective man on the internet is incredibly subjective. You're not even objective when it comes to Barcelona. I totally await the day Lucho's "tactics" unravels and you defend him in the midst of damning criticism. Basically, what you do usually Proud

You may consider yourself "an ever youthful, young man", but I feel inclined to remind you do that objectifying young girls will still get you in trouble. Especially, on the internet. And "I regret nothing" won't do you any favors in court. Adam Johnson is not a role model. Just sayin'.
