Valencia fans called him the dwarf. I think its appropriate because we were all talking about how height was so important for our LB candidates and we bought this guy lol Very Happy

This guy is a bit dumb, he said today that "it is a lie that I played with fever with Spain".

It was Tito who said he played with fever...

Cant defend for squat...still not won over by him.

Adriano is def the better leftback right now.

He's defending is not bad, and for having a small body, he is very strong don't let the hate get the impression look at the stats let alone, without Dani Alves, Alba is our best wing back.

I find his defending quite bad. I definitely prefer Adriano like Dani. I think Alba edges Adriano going forward, but it's not so clear as by how much Adriano beats Alba defensively.

Still, thanks for the last minute goal Very Happy

Not only cant he defend, he thinks he is prime Facetti or something. What makes you think your good enough to have 3 and 4 touches of the ball at a time?

Defended badly, lost possession, some nice forward runs but too many touches for my liking.
Hoping to see more Barta, letting Adriano to play at leftback.

I think Alba is a brilliant attacking full back. One of the best in the world, even rivaling Alves. However, he is not as good as Alves defending and he does have lapses, especially that he leaves too much space in his back and is very wea, in the air. But especially as an Alves replacement, I think Alba is a great, great signing.

Even if he was an Alves replacement, and I don't think I agree that's the case, then he's not even near the same level as Alves. I don't think he's near the same level attacking, nor even close defending- especially defending.

He is a great attacker, I can agree, but I'm not sure he rivals Alves. But I think I would have to give him more time to come to a full conclusion, anyway. A couple months is nothing in the grand scheme of things.
