    Muscle.

    Its not evident so far. But when we are being dominated we need someone like Casemiro to break plays and win balls.

    Vidal is very good at it. But, he does look clueless at times.

    I would still give him time because its not easy to adapt to us in such a short time.

    new club and he's coming off an injury which kept him off for a few months . Even if he doesn't make it here , we payed only 18 mil for him.

    Transfer still makes very little sense. He provides muscle in theory* but he's also coming in as an old fossil of a player who needs to help us immediately or his value to the team over his entire spell here will be lower than even the 18m we spent for him. He needs to both adapt and regain his fitness after his injury and by the time he's doing both we'll have probably needed the "muscle" he supposedly brings in numerous times.
    On whether or not we'll get 50m for Paulinho

    I'm quite sure they will pay already this January, so I'm happy to do it.

    I hope he get time so he can adapt as soon as possible.
    We need his muscle and fight spirit not now, but starting
    from the 1/8 CL, when we need more warriors than
    pussies on the field

    Barca fans always want players with good feet,” Messi said. “We defend with the ball. Players like Arturo Vidal are necessary.

    “He’s the type of player who does everything well, with the ball and also with the muscle that he has.

    “Games are getting more complicated and difficult, physique is important and we are always the smallest.”

    Those are Messi's words. Yet the geniuses over here think they know it all.

    Even Messi knows what we are lacking in cl

    Attitude and balls. This guy adds muscles and balls to our otherwise soft team. We are very easy to play against, especially when the intensity gets higher. We always seem to lose against the biggest clubs in the big CL games away. Vidal has winners mentality and hence when he joined us he said: I want to win CL, 3 times.(Every year of his contract)

    He needs time. How he adapts will be crucial for us n cl.

    Rakitic and Busquets are SOFT. In cl you need an enforcer. Take Casemiro out of the Rm side and they would have won 2 cl max. He breaks up play and scores crucial goals.

    Exactly. I was just thinking about Casemiro, same type of player. He adds good balance to Real Madrid.

    Yeah because Messi would obviously shit on a teammate in an interview.

    The problem isn't a lack of enforcer, it's players who can't/don't run (Busquets, Pique, Suarez, old Iniesta, sometimes Messi). Getting a washed up injuriy prone 31 year old won't fix that.

    Am enforcer doesn't stop us from being unable to handle a press, getting overrun, or not being able to break down a bus.

    Yes, you're right. However Valverde and the board lack the guts to fast track the younger players so we're stuck betwea rock and a hard place.

    I'm pretty sure that if Vidal adapts he will be crucial in the Cl. Our midfield and Busquets, Roberto have been glaring weaknesses. Not only are they slow but they're weak too. In Cl Busquets gets out muscled and out paced so easily. He's so slow and weak even when he tries to foul the opposition he's ineffective.
