So much rumours for Barca all the time its a mess atm, but amongst all the noise I just cant help get the feeling Pjanic could turn out to be (hopefully not only the major signing) yet another poor signing for us and flop? I just dont see how he would be suitable for us? Hes slow and weak, just has the technique and passing. Or am I underrating him?

If we play 4-3-3, and with Busquets looking to stay, it would be De Jong - Busquets - Pjanic. Since we look like getting Vidal (also another past it Juve legend if that) out too after Rakitic and Arthur, we only got Roberto and youngsters left in there lol. How do u think this midfield will do vs the top teams? Is Pjanic good enough for Barca? Enough to stay competitive or will struggle for top 4? Loool.

Its really a dire and joke of a situation just thinking about it...

If he is finally used in his actual position and not misused like an abused spouse then, yes.

Under Koeman who is boring as it gets, I doubt it.

Probably cannot believe his luck that Barcelona still wanted him at 30.

Pjanic walks into Barca's midfield. Wont flop, will at least be a starter.

Honestly, what else is there to do at Barca these days than flop?

Heads above the other midfielders at the club. And that's saying something considering he's not very tall.

Best man on the pitch vs his former club, too.

Should start over any of Busquets or Frenkie every single time.

He compliments Frenkie very well. Much better combo than Frenkie-Busquets who are too similar to play together.

Finally a real midfielder in the team.

Absolutely. Maybe finally the coin has dropped that Busquets time has come, should have been out of the team years ago.

Pjanic is not perfect but he is a real midfielder, yes

I miss him dearly. Quite ironic that of all our midfielders he had the most ability to execute whatever system Pirlo has in mind Laughing

Busquets would tell you running is for pussys.

I swear some guys in the barca section argued Pjanic is not an upgrade over busi ffs i spit in yo face, he is twice or thrice the player.

Pjanic is always doing the work for 2 players. Glad he is doing well.

Is it sustainable? Was he running like that every game at Juventus? It looks to me like he is doing an extra effort to get off the bench but there is an expected regression coming

Surely it's not sustainable but you expect an extra effort away at Jjuve in CL.

Nobody will ask him to run that much vs most La Liga teams because it's not necessary. But we could have used that extra effort last week vs Madrid.

Busquets never ever puts in that extra effort because he never had to fight for the spot. Moreso than distance covered, I'm impressed by Pjanic's passing though, very precise and helped us advance quickly which is something we've been lacking

He was running like that every game for us. Had fantastic performances until December, then declined afterwards for the last 2 seasons.

He was often subbed out at 60-65 minutes under Sarri, but this happened increasingly after the Arthur agreement was announced (it was announced with many games left, strangely)

He definitely had a poor season under Sarri, by his standards, and did not enjoy playing for him

Change of scenery doing him good. Top player to be fair but he had to leave Juve even though I would’ve loved to see him play under Pirlo

Whats do Juve fans think of Arthur only managing to come on at 82mins vs his former club? I think it seems to be a sign Pirlo has not much confidence in him atm?

Still not gonna decide on Pjanic yet for me, too early. Busquets is well past it, but we do need to remember how much of a task he does for us in games the way he has to cover vast distances in the 4-2-3-1. If Pjanic and him will be able to take turns over the season and both do ok thats fine for this season, but we will need upgrade in the summer hopefully.

Too small of a sample size to conclude anything about Pirlo or his formations. Arthur has been involved and has looked good enough so far

Our only undisputed starter is the Lord Danilo himself

The truth is other players have to cover for Busquets and not the other way around. He is a lability for the defensive formation and useless going forward.

Busquets is so easily replacable. Anyone is better than him and when I say anyone I mean absolutely anyone.

Busquets is finished. I along with Alex and others were some of his biggest advocates here and I admit he is done and very limited outside a certain system.

Pjanic is ridiculously technical. Is ambidextrous, perfect passer and the best FK taker in the world.

Odd he runs as much as he does post Covid along with the fact that he is known to be un-athletic but this is a habit of what Allegri made him into, less an old school player and more to cover multiple bases. It took away a lot from what he is but it'll suit Barça.

Busquests was finished 5 years ago, and Pjanic hasn't scored freekick almost in two years. And that's less than Cronaldo which says a lot. That said against Juve he was great.

Busquets carries a semi-trailer lol. Between the 2 the choice is obvious

How many free kicks Pjanic took these last 2 years hmm

Does it matter? If somebody uses such hyperbole it should be called out. Or are you saying they are saving his freekick for cl final?

Best FK taker on the basis of what Rolling Eyes Total goals scored or conversion rate?

I'm asking how many free kicks he took. I cannot find the stat.

Don't remember him taking that much, but i skipped many games under Sarri. How can you make conclusions if you don't know how many attempts. From past seasons, hard to deny Pjanic was a skilled FK taker, if you follow Serie A.
