    Betencur needs to get more starts .

    Can, Matuidi and Pjanic need to go. Let's give Ramsey and Rabiot time.

    Rabiot is improving each game he plays. Ramsey still needs time but so far he is not living up to his abilities as shown at Arse - when he was healthy. I am not sure he is going to.

    I am not ready to give up on Pjanic. Yet. The rest need to find the nearest exit. Matuidi looked so lost and slow that I actually found myself feeling sorry for him. And the team.

    Pjanic has been on the team since 2016 and has been average the entire time he's been here, at what point do you give up on him? I've wanted him gone for years, he's 29 we need to either cash in now or just be stuck with him underperforming in the most important midfield role for us

    If someone pulls the trigger on Pjanic for good money, take it. He has gone past his peak years. He is not the protagonist that many of us have waited for years to become.

    Oh, don’t get me wrong: for the right $ I’d jettison him in a second.
    Team first. Players come second.
    At this point, I’d consider non sellable:
    CR7 (duh)
    Paulo
    Higuain
    Douglas Costa
    Bonucci
    Chiellini
    Alphabet (although, for the right offer...)
    Gigi (for this year)
    Tonali (if we do indeed get him as the entire Italian media seems to think)
    EDIT: De Ligt, Demiral (duh, Lou)

    Who am I missing? :)

    Completely forgot them. Particularly embarrassed about forgetting De Ligt

    If you work out something for Tonali, there is a very realistic scenario where you can allow Pjanic to leave and lose little, if anything, in quality with only a slight economic loss. My guess is that someone would pay 40-50ish for Pjanic--and Tonali won't cost much more than that.

    I'd ship off Pjanic for anything above 30m

    Pjanic could show us more, but when I look at the midfield, Matuidi is a very limited technical player who is no longer as effective as he used to be in that ball-winner role. Rabiot is nothing special. Khedira has been done for quite some time; and Ramsey isn't being utilized as a midfielder. We have bigger issues than Pjanic.

    I would say tomorrow is a big game away to Napoli, but the chaos surrounding that club and Gattuso having no clue what he's doing I think it should be an easy match.

    Pjanic is in role that should low him to orchestra the midfield, it never happened. Juve could and should of sold him for 70-80m a few years ago and let Bentancur get minutes.

    Your right about Matuidi, we need a Casmiro type player. I see the ideal lineup somewhere around this:

    CR7 - Dybala
    - AM -
    Ball winner (Castrovilli?) - Bentancur
    - Tonali -
    Sandro - Demiral - De Ligt - Pellegrini​

    To me Matuidi and Khedira were never ball winners...Blaise runs a lot but he doesn't really win balls back, more like puts pressure. And Pjanic was never a regista like Pirlo and Marchisio were. These 3 are the reason for our slump last 3yrs...dont know why management doesnt see it

    I really hope this khedira matuidi shenanigan stops this summer, its quite embarrassing to still rely on them, its almost year 2021

    Pjanic is almost 30 he needs to be sold

    Hey, guys. I haven't been here in a while. Well, well. Inter slip up at home to Cagliari. That was quite predictable. I don't want to say that the title race will be over if our boys beat Napoli later today, but I think it will be hard for both Inter and Lazio to leapfrog us in the table, barring a catastrophic meltdown. Lazio have impressed me this season, but they have been on a roll for so long that it's only a matter of time before they start running out of steam. I can't wait for the big game this afternoon. Forza Juve!

    Pjanic off, Rabiot on. He asked to be subbed.

    Bentancur gets a yellow for a clumsy challenge, yet a couple minutes earlier Dybala was taken out and no card, it was a worse tackle.
