You guys have obviously forgotten how Xavi played if you think this numpty is any close to the legend himself.

This guy plays safe and is more obsessed about keeping possession than actually getting the ball upfield. Tell me when he played a crucial pass in the past 3 matches? He played maybe one critical pass all match against Madrid. Compared to Xavi who would have seen a pass that your average numpty midfielder (read Cesc) would also see but Arthur not only didn't play the lob, he didn't even acknowledge it. In fact I've seen one single long ball from him in 300+ minutes despite the many runs the full backs would make in behind the opposition defence.

Don't get me wrong, the lad is doing alright but the Xavi comments are as premature as my ejaculations.

But hey defensively he is as poor as Xavi is. That's a similarity?

(sorry I love this numpty word since reading the Lopetegui Suicide Watch thread)

Also nobody expects Arthur to be EXACTLY like Xavi. We just hope he develops into a player of Xavi's profile, obviously he'll never be as good as Xavi who was a once in a lifetime player.

But obviously Dany always sees the negative side of things.

Arthur is a newcomer from a different continent and so far he's played like a veteran and bossed the pitch against 2 great European powerhouses in Madrid and Inter. Maybe those teams aren't at the peak of their form, but still, it's a big challenge for a South American player who isn't really familiar with playing in CL and the best leauge in the world which is La Liga.

Yeah, we just said Arthur isnt close to Xavi you numpty.....

Because NOBODY is close to the legend that Xavi was.

When reading Dany's posts I'm imagining a 15 year old girl on her period 24/7.

Blames Arthur for playing it safe against Real Madrid 5 games into his European career. FOR FVCKS SAKE

Quality aside I watched a few minutes of that video and not only does he look poor, he also is nothing like Xavi. Trainwreck of a thread imo.

We've played our best games in a long time when Arthur started to play, against Inter and Madrid we've had more control of the ball and we were finally able to dominate the middle of the pitch for a considerable amount of minutes at a time. Usually we were exchanging blows against Madrid for the entire game but now we just passed them into submission, especially in the first half.

Arthur is giving us the control we've been asking for since Xavi left. He dictates the tempo of the game and others feel calmer around him too because you can bet on him to keep the ball and pass it around in a way which changes the flow of the game.

He's freaking darn good. It's like he's played for us for 10 years. Didn't even have to get accustomed.

He's the best player in our squad in regards to xG Buildup per 90 minutes which accounts for all the passes in the buildup to an expected goal aside from key passes and shots.

Not to mention the performance of Busquets and Rakitic elevated considerably in Arthurs presence. He makes players around him perform better.

Future GOAT.

ARTHUR - Page 4 Dqnc_ljUcAATtvJ

Bow down before King Arthur.

ARTHUR - Page 4 Dqq-gT2WwAElRed




That pass to Alba at around 2:00. :bow: Most bums would probably go for a hoof ball but Arthur produces an inch perfect low ball that bounces a bit but is caressed so perfectly Alba dont even need to look down cause he knows it's at his feet. That's quality and you notice it right away.

And even if he loses the ball or makes a mistake, he brushes it off and continues on bossing the pitch and being brilliant. Nothing phases him.

A few months ago, I read that Messi was a fan of Arthur, but I've heard very little else about him. Even 17 year old, Victoriusudus has garnered more hype than him hmm If this guy turns out to be anything above Rakitic level, I'll gladly use an avatar of your choice for a month Very Happy


Did he ever reach Rakitic- level?

The GL hype train still has low standards. This thread has aged well.

I don’t watch Barca’s matches often enough these days to know whether he’s been good or bad, but I don’t get the impression that he’s well on his way to becoming the next Xavi/Iniesta or whatever sensationalist comparison it was.

He will be flogged together with Dembele soon. Mostly for off the field issues. Heard he is Neymar lite with his partying

Tbh, Barca would take and hype anyone who can pass a ball under pressure. Look at their midfielders. That's why they are the only ones who see some sort of super human abilities from FDJ when Alena could have been as good had they trusted him

The guy has above average shielding skills and that's where the Xavi comparisons should have ended. He lacks the vision and the brain of the chameleon eyes.

Probably has the same STD as fartbol (his biggest admirer on GL) which causes the brain to stop functioning.

The Xavi comparisons were always ridiculous and is just the Barça fan version of yearning the loss in the all-time best midfielder.

Definitely an impressive player to watch but hard to take him seriously due to his STD ridden state tbh.

The intl. Barca fanbase declares anyone the new Xavi who looks a bit good under pressure and can pass the ball. Oliver Torres was also the new Xavi not that long ago. Then Samper was the new Busquets. And Montoya was Dani Alves' successor. Laughing

We had Arthur and De Jong in midfield with Rakitic on the bench and got outplayed by Slavia Prague and some low level La Liga teams this season, literally the worst period play-wise under Valverde. Couple that with Arthur's inability to last more than 60 minutes and stay professional outside of the pitch.

Potential is there but who knows when they will fulfill it. In fairness, I don't remember many CMs who were world class at 21 or 22. Thiago was an early bloomer who looked ready around that age but he hasn't really developed much since then either.

In 5 years they might dominate. Or not. Who knows. My bet is Barca will fall apart after Messi and Suarez retire (I know, not a risky bet). They are the only 2 players who win games. The backline with Pique and Alba retiring is a joke (Firpo leftback, Roberto rightback Laughing) and the midfield is only potential as of now.

Arthur was one of Barca's best players at the start of the season, if not their best (Pre-Messi injury). Though I understand the doubts about his professionalism. Guy has been out of action with an STD for more than a month now ffs.

Syphilis does tend to cause neural and motor problems which is a viable a excuse for his recently underwhelming form as it is, rather than natural causes.
