    His locker is right next to Paulinho's; I don't think we're supposed to keep two alphas that close together. Pauly might feel threatened.

    Heard a podcast (by 2 guys who actually watch Serie A, one of them a Palmeiras-fan), which mentioned some of his weaknesses. I guess it is interesting, because all of his very many qualities has been pointed out a lot lately, but few puts light on potential weak spots:

    - Can sometimes get caught upfield, loosing the ball because of his solo-drives forward, when no clear passing-opportunity is available
    - Lack of speed to catch opponents when starting behind them, e.g. in situations as described above
    - Fine passing, but not world-class, and will often be more comfortable dribbling forward rather than doing the tricky pass to a team-mate

    Seems like there’s almost as many people present at his presentation as Coutinho’s. A lot of Colombians.

    Also because the fact that Coutinho's presentation was held on Monday, whereas Mina was unveiled on a Saturday.

    Probably that also. Still too few came to see Coutinho, IMO. Especially considering that he is a world-class player and our most expensive signing ever.

    Puyol could be a miserable fucker at times really.

    So you and Puyol have a lot more in common than I initially thought.

    If you are sitting thinking about how I compare to Puyol think it is me in your head a bit too much.

    You need to get out more.
