He had his worst match as a Juve player last night so it's a sensitive moment to ask this question Laughing

In general he came extremely out of form after having spent the season frozen out by PSG. Took him a long time to get up and running. Since then he has actually been good. Better than Ramsey which is shocking to me. The problem of last night besides his terrible performance is also one of fit. Him, Pjanic, and Bentancur don't compliment each other. It's all too slow to play them together.

Rabiot in the last 2 months has showed his class which is good. Now it's a matter of putting the pieces together properly to see if he does have a role in Juve's future or not.

Rabiot has been good, there is no question about that.

But when you've a coach who does not use him for his strengths and attempts to morph a totally different archetype from what he is, he will underwhelm in key moments.

Last night purely was Rabiot's fault and I have always said mentally he is highly unimpressive, mentality wise.

It's not that the coach doesn't use him to his strengths, he has been tried in all positions. Iirc he even complained at PSG against being played in front of the defense, he prefers being played in last night's position. He just had a horrible game, that's on him.

He is fine, and he is the player he is, which at this point is pretty much a downgraded copy of Bentancur. That's what makes it redundant when he is played with Bentancur and Pjanic. We are better served by having a more intelligent player off the ball (Ramsey and Khedira) or a much more mobile player (Bernardeschi and Matuidi).

Rabiot was a bit of a French media hype job. I hate to go there, but he was the " great white hope " for a certain segment of the population.

His main quality is versatility, he's ok at everything, and exceptional at nothing. He's your third midfielder that complements two other world-class players.

Pretty much an exact description of his time at Juve. Except we don't have the two other world class players Laughing

It's a strange case because he has very nice technique and he has the height to impose his physique in midfield. So on paper he could be quite dominant, but he just doesn't seem to have the mentality for it. He feels a bit lazy.

So far this season I have a positive opinion on him and wouldn't mind him continuing at Juve. Not as the main guy though, like you say, as the third midfielder.

Bentancur's deal is also versatility, but he is just plain better than Rabiot at almost everything, so it's not the best fit to have them both next to a comatose Pjanic.

Can hardly blame him for not being the saviour of the midfield when he was brought in late in the summer on a free transfer.

We started the midfield with Pjanic, who started brightly and decomposed into whatever walking bag of shit you see before you now, Bentancur, who’s blossomed, Matuidi, who looks like he wears rollerblades instead of cleats, Khedira, who has regressed into his cocoon of everlasting injury, good lad Ramsey, RG’s second cousin so I won’t say a bad word about him here, Emre Can, dismissed by the tobacco lord himself and then Rabiot, the guy who lets his mom run his life and doesn’t even have the worst hair on the team because of Ronaldo.

Then you get this team of misfits that resemble the cast of the replacements and you want them to play like Xavi, Iniesta and Busquets and the fate of the team depends on the midfield’s ability to move the ball quickly and effectively and none of them have been good at that

Rabiot's main quality outside of placement of short passes is his super high football IQ. That is what caught the attention of him by coaches in Ligue 1 and that is undeniable.

Problem is he is so entitled and lazy it is safe to say it will never go beyond that. In such a high level of football you cannot be trying to be the lazy artist unless you're Iniesta level of talent.
