    Wish his last name was not Valverde.
    Reminds me of horrible memories.

    It’s actually just you mostly, not “people”. Maybe Kingleo when he’s lazy and doesn’t want to talk in real terms (which is a lot of the time).

    Nor have I said anything outrageous. Dude has been in great nick, team looks night and day without him, he’s smart and while a bit laborious at times, he makes up for anything he concedes with instant recovery. And he looked good in Uruguay youth teams already so it’s not like it’s not been telegraphed. Had he joined the first team under Zidane in 2018 it could have been very different.

    All league losses without him starting.

    Imaging selling your reserve DM in the summer and not getting a replacement.

    TBH I think he's very very good. He's exactly the 'young Vidal' people have been asking for.

    His box to box ability is impressive and stamina is insane. I think his presence and fighting spirit could be a good addition, especially as a RCM with Messi RW, together with a controlling LCM. If he can add some decisiveness in the opposition's box he'll be world class, no doubt.

    Only bad thing about him is his last name.

    Stamina and endurance seems actually somewhat questionable. From February on he kept tailing off in the last 20 mins of various games clutching his calves from cramping up. But if it's in the context of willpower and this tirelessness then he's absolutely incredible indeed.

    Yes, of course.

    You should laugh at clowns and the court jesters. You're doing a great job.

    Overrated. Came in at minute 85 and didn’t change the game.

    Maybe, haven't noticed it too much.
    But there aren't many players giving their all like he is. With a bit more experience he'll learn how much he can run without cramping up.
