    I was very critical when we signed him. Unfortunately, so far, I was right. He`s like a headless chicken, losing way too much possession. God help us if he`s the one to replace Iniesta

    He is way to slow to play on the flank; we should use Bojan for this. Hleb can play in the midfield. He can pass the ball well and dribble past two or three players. This is what we need from him, to make an additional player for us. He was doing this very well in Arsenal with Fabregas and why not in Barca with Xavi.

    He understands the midfield philosophy. He came from Arsenal where they play similar attractive football, so it was kind of easier for him. A very useful sub to keep. Versatile too.

    He showed some skills in the midfield in the last match. But still I agree with you Bardh, he should be playing in the midfield where he is accustomed to build up the game and unburden other players.

    Re: 21 - Alexander Paulavic Hleb

    Tonight he reminded me of the Ronaldinho from previous two years. A lot of useless dribbling, maybe a pass or two that saw a passage to our strikers. Nothing special overall. He is still adapting but I'm wondering when he will begin paying off his market value.

    Absolutely the worst signing this year. What is Pep supposed to do with him? Iniesta shoes are big to fill I know, but this guy comes a whole foot short. Just play Victor Sanchez or whoever. Sell im back to Belarus FFS.

    Have patience, maybe he'll improve on the right or the center.
