    Once again you fail to grasp the point. It wasn't that we'd get dominated in the Clasico if he played, but rather if he had taken Rakitic's spot which I'm still certain of. That didn't happen and Paulinho playing over a winger is entirely reasonable. What would we have lost in midfield by keeping the same 3 starters and adding Paulinho to that?? If you're going to create a straw-man, at least make it a rational one. I don't believe in his ability to start in a true 3 man midfield role in any tough contest, not now and not ever. 9 turnovers in a game as an off ball player should be plenty evidence for that. If you seriously believe Paulinho has Rakitic's competence on the ball or even close to it then you're doing a massive disservice to him.

    You also fail to recollect me saying repetitively that Paulinho's spot in the squad is no problem and I'm happy to have him for his uses. That being said he should not be a starting midfielder in our best lineup and he does not solve the problems that we, after so many years, still need to address in our mid.

    You slaughtered him in the Deportivo game when a lot of us were saying he played well and brouight many of the things you outlined.

    All you kept focusing on was this idea he was worst in league on the ball and mocking anyone that disagreed.

    Paulinho has done well for Barca BECAUSE he is something different which was what you seem to be agreeing on now and argued against st before.

    He will be useful starter in some games and not in others all need to do is judge him fairly when he plays which has not been the case with a lot of folk on here imo.

    He is reacting to Messi and almost is part of attacking three with Messi and Suarez and presses from the front. He will never try to be too clever on the ball.

    The team lately has almost been Messi, Suarez and Paulinho backed up by full backs as the more forward thinking players.

    He is the only midfielder that plays in midfield ( Bob...) who has an eye for scoring and not just trying to find Messi.

    Had Raki done that every other game he could end up having 8-10 goals per season. Problem is her doesn't..

    Usually never get jersey's with a players name on it, might make an exception for Paulinho. Expect it to become a collector's item.

    But who would be insane enough to sell a shirt with Paulinho's name on it?

    This game summed up the usual Paulinho performance. Does absolutely fuck all the entire game and doesn't provide the team with a single positive quality in midfield and has nothing to provide the team whatsoever when he's not in the opposing box, but when he is in the box he's a goal threat. He'd be just as useful if he set up a chair behind their goal and sat there waiting for our attack to get to the final third, and just saved his stamina instead of pretending to play for the rest of the game.
