    Should take a look on how he always looks around before recieving the pass and positions himself to have the best passing options when he gets the ball.
    He just needs to get the damn playingtime to set into the Barcelona style a bit more.

    Liked the way he took advantage of his opportunity today. He'll be the first option for midfield rotations now. Don't know how long it will take, but he's sure looking like a future Barca starter.

    Valverde on Arthur after the game:

    “Creo que puede jugar como titular en cualquier momento. Hoy podía haberlo hecho aunque opté por dar continuidad al anterior equipo. Sabe perfectamente cómo jugamos, vienen varios partidos seguidos y tendrá sus opciones”.


    "I believe he can be a starter at any given time. Today I could have started him but I opted to give the team a bit of continuity. He knows how we play perfectly and there will be a lot of games and we'll have options"


    Something like that.


    I think he will be starting a game or two soon.

    I love how Valverde made him wait for like extra 5 minutes because PSV had a offensive throw in, and he was scared of the aerial threat lmao. In a game that was already 3-0.

    I think it has to do with Arthur's age and easing him into La Liga style football. Also, it is Rakitic's last year probably at a high level, so squeezing every ounce of high level football from the Croat is a smart move.

    Arthur will be a mainstay in our XI for years to come. I think we all should look at the big picture, glass half full and what have you.

    This perfectly sums up what I said, and it's coming from the boss man himself. He is only 22 guys, we have to remember development takes time and patience. As fans, sometimes we expect performance immediately. Coaches see them and speak to them every day.

    Not saying Arthur isn't 'capable' of starting immediately either... afterall, he was MOTM in Libertadores Final. But this is a whole nother level.
