Those guys have only been through this kind of failure once though Doc.  With Higuain, it's been quite a few now.  

I don't like to rate players on single matches because that's unfair.  I think that this was a collective failure by Juve obviously.  But Higgy is supposed to be the leader of the attack at Juve... its most expensive player by far.  When you ask to be "the man", you better deliver more often than not.

I'll also add that it was pretty disgraceful how bad a shape he came into the season. If I'm a juve fan, I'm watching to see if he repeats that. If he does, I'm all over him. That's just not right for a pro player, let alone someone who just got bought for 90 million.

Not saying he's had a bad season... it was good one after a slow start. I just think he's nowhere near the class of player that some make him out to be. He's a very good player but not a outcome-deciding one, if that makes sense.

He didn't start slow at all though, he scored the winner late against Fiorentina and his very first match and Juve's first of the season- which is a big deal.

He put together the best season as a Juve forward in the last 10 years probably.



He scored incredible goals, and is the main reason we retained the Serie A title and won the Coppa Italia.

This "not in shape" stuff is just for the pundits and the memers who have nothing better to do. Higuain played every game in Serie A and made 55 appearances in the season. His effort was immense this season and he was worth every dollar per kilogram that was spent.

He got his poacher goals because that's what he does...  but he couldn't start games at the beginning due to his physical fitness.  Check the game logs Luca.

Tevez had a much better and more complete season in his last season at Juve imo. Was great. Juve wasn't that great from 2007 until the Conte years... so yeah he was the best striker after Tevez imo.

Here's what he looked like then:

And Benzema is no more a difference-maker than Higuain at this stage. He was at Lyon... but those days are long long gone. I don't think he plans on trying to be either lol.

So this "game changer" argument goes for both. They're very good strikers and very good team players.... types that every championship caliber team needs.

But you need a superstar or two to put you over the top and neither is the type.

We handled Dybala the same way when we signed him the season before. Allegri takes his time integrating players but I feel you're reading a bit too much into this. He also joined at the end of July which is only 2 weeks of preparation with the team.

He DID look overweight when he joined but it never really slowed him down, no pun intended. It doesn't take away from a great season in any case. And he did score some very quality goals this season, he was our most important signing and attacker.

Anyways, regardless if he comes into next season in terrible form then he'll get the flack he deserves.

Seriously shut up about benzema you have no clue what he wants to be, all I read is nonsense speculation posts when the fact of the matter benzema gets no freaking service, never seen a more cowardly fanbase can't even speak a little truth, cause the guy ain't popular with Spanish media(media overall), casuals and posers, everybody and their grandmother knows cf needs service, every time he is denied even the easiest pass people wanna write trash like this, instead of speaking simple truths about a game the entire world just watched, this forum is turning into a joke.

if benzema doesn't want to be a game change why does he sprint from the halfway line? just to get a closer look at cr, bale, isco,modric,Marcelo and casemiro all taking shots before passing to him? Everything I been saying happen in the finals and I'm still reading these stupid posts, benzema scoring is not a priority for the team its always been that way(cr duh), why can't people admit that stop trying this ridiculous psychology bs, you have never spoken to benzema in your life you don't know what his expectation are, idk how you keep writing these ridiculous posts like you know something.

Every game the mids wingers and fb are taking shots if they can't find cr, never seen something so blatantly obvious being tiptoe around and twisted because of butthurt so stupid Laughing

iirc both benz and higuain has broad bone structure. they "looked" fat at times when in madrid but they weren't actually fat. genetics is a funny thing. though when he first joined juve he did seem slightly fatter than usual.

@ chad stop overreacting.
While I disagree on Benz as he IS a gamechanger on his day, won't deny those days are few and sparse. his atletico moment was the most recent one though i thought he did well against juve...

Even with 2 la Liga goals Benzema is still a better player than this fraud

Scored 2 but should've had 2 more. He is the only reason we're still in the tie but also one of the main reasons we didn't take kill this game. Usually, our team with a 2 goal lead at home will be fine but this was no ordinary match. Its hard to fault your striker when he scores a brace inside 10 minutes to give you such a cushion, and the chance he missed on 30ish minutes I'm not horribly upset about, but the penalty on the 45th minute was criminal. All of our Argentine cucks cannot take penalties

Qué fácil es hablar después del partido desde el sillón de casa en gol legado. Hasta el 2-0 todo era perfecto, después del 2-2 cambian todas las opiniones. A nosotros no nos interesa y vamos a Londres a clasificarnos. Un abrazo a todos aquellos que quieren el bien de la Juventus", escribió Higuaín en su cuenta de Instagram.

Someone google translate that.

Gotta love a footballer's ego sometimes. They do enjoy the praise but when it comes to criticisms, all of a sudden, I'm on a couch and knows nothing about football. That being said, a certain Frenchman would love if he had those 2 goals he scored.
