you have two world class players in that squad

and a bunch of B+ players, don't get me wrong, some good B+ players

that midfield is utter shit though

Crockisio? Bentapleb? Can? Mehtuidi? Khedira?

got a feeling you're in for a rude awakening this season (at least in the CL)

that midfield is 1 injury away from big problems

Can and Khedira in one midfield is a terrible, cruel joke

And what would that rude awakening be ?

I dont think we'll go out earlier than the quarters with this squad tbh(which would be a huge disappointment)

We've spent a lot of money and retained all our key players unlike previous seasons. Dont see why i shouldnt be optimistic about our CL chances.

Juventus midfield looks plain average. Their defence also doesn't look that optimistic against pace and counter. How ever the attack department looks extremely complete and they will have to drag juventus to CL.

well compared to Serie A competitors it's world class of course, except maybe Inter who have the most talented team

but in general it's really, really average

That's hilarious. Matuidi, Pjanic and Can alone could walk and play first string in any EPL or Bundesliga club. Maybe Madrid and Barca would have to do some turnover.

I'm just kidding to wind up @Breva really.

In reality, you have in Khedira and Matuidi two experienced World Cup winning war horses in the engine room, Pjanic who is equally creative and combative, elder statesman Marchisio, and Can, who at his very best is like the next Ballack age 35.

But really, as you also have the arguably best defensive unit in world football, and a forward line with new Messi Dybala, new Ronaldinho Douglas Costa, Italian SchürrleBale Bernadeschi, elite competitor DMandzukic as well as the actual Cristiano Ronaldo, you should be regarded as proper favourites to win the CL IMO.

You should be very disappointed not to win it this season.

The sam Emre Can who was not even first choice at Liverpool over the staggering competition of Henderson and Milner would walk into City and Bayern's team? lol.

Pjanic is great and Matuidi is past it (which is why he was made redundant at PSG), the midfield is markedly average and even Roma and Man Utd have a better midfield let alone the likes of Bayern and City.

Matuidi's days as a midfielder have long ended.
These days he's only useful as a hard-working left winger who ruins 99% of attacks on his side.

Can confirm this is accurate for most of our season. Him playing as LM in a 4-4-2 was his best role and even there he wasn't much more than running legs. Since we are lacking in this area he can actually be useful, but not great. Basically a slightly rich man's Sturaro at this point.

He began the season looking better, then got injured and became this. Lets hope he regains some form.

Anyway its no secret that our midfield is lacking and yet we got to the CL final, beat Barca 3-0 and beat "best midfield in the world" Madrid 3-1 with Khedira-Pjanic.

That's how great Pjanic and the other 9 players are Proud

After suffering a concussion against Belgium (he could have easily been left out for the final), he started for France in the final against Croatia. I wonder why France would use a clapped out player like Matuidi in such an important match? Guess the France coaching staff are less capable than the GL experts.

Because Deschamps was hell-bent on defending?

It's no surprise that a player in his 30's (who has already won a lot and earned a lot of money) starts declining, happens all the time. I wouldn't expect much from Matuidi any longer.

We will only play with 2 CMs for the most part. We don't need numbers in midfield. What we will need is to replace Khedira with someone better.
