    Then it is time we combined the two to make Aleix Roberto.

    Lucho should just play Aleix. He knows how to link up properly and is better attacking-wise than Bob. Both are kinda meh defensively.

    Not a rb, not good enough defenisively and definitely not good enough offensively.

    Defending like today is why you don't replace Dani Alves with a midfielder. He should of only been a back up, not our main option.

    He is also no where near imposing enough when attacking. I was okay with giving him a chance last year, but he is not what we need.
    Pwn'ing no0bs since 1985.

    He is not what this team needs in that position.
    We need someone similar in style to Alves...

    BTW, did you notice that in the entire last season's team (and before) Alves was the only one who knew how to accomplish a throw-in??? And of course creating danger out of it...

    He's a better mid than Arda or Denis or Rafinha. Club needs to hang onto him.

    Alves was/is a pretty good defender and more importantly very aggressive in pressing the opposition players, which led to many interceptions, but also many small fouls that interrupted opposition`s game flow.

    I will give just one example - the first Messi`s goal against Bayern in 14/15 ; Alves won the duel high up the pitch and played a pass to Messi in good position. The rest is history.

    He actually was. Seems you didn't watch all of his 8 years at Barça. Probably just the last 2, by your misinformed comments.

    alves was one of the strongest 1v1 defender. It's just he lost pace later in his career so he couldn't catch up to opponents when he was on the opposite end of the flank due to his attacking nature

    He hasn't been at his best for the last couple months or so, but what happened to everyone who was saying Alves who? Some of his performances early in the season were at the level of prime Alves and that's not an exaggeration. Didn't Roberto pick up an injury this season? I forget. Maybe that's why he is underperforming. Either way I agree with those who say he should move back to midfield. Unless we get Verrtati (90% chances that WONT happen) he is the perfect complement to iniesta and busquets in the midfield. Unless we switch to a double pivot with Messi as the AM which in that case he'd be the perfect partner for Busi in the pivot
