Football is a team game. You could be a brilliant individual and lift the team up together. BUT you could be a brilliant individual lad and killed the rest.
Not that he is brilliant anyway... that’s why he he can’t be untouchable in the team.

You are saying that many of us can’t see his contribution but we already summarized out the opposites.

Piantek pointed out from his last interview that Paqueta knows where he wants the ball while taking a swipe at Suso.....
say no more.

How is it nothing but a liability if he has created almost three times more chances than the next player in the squad? Or he's made passes that put players alone in front of the opposition GK at least four times, two of those in the small box (Piatek and Rebic)? He is a liability in many aspects, especially when he is off form, which happens more regularly than it should, and likely enough to deserve the bench, but he certainly is not only that.

You can't seriously blame the AMC thing or the tactical choices on Suso though. It's as easy as bench him and play someone else. It ends up coming back to the fact that we did not seem to have anyone else who can create chances regularly and managers fully know it. People also talk about 4-3-3 as if it was some crazy formation that only teams who have Suso use. It's the most common formation in football today. It's disingenuous to think Giampaolo's experiment with his favorite 4-3-1-2 failed because of Suso and not because Borini was played as midfield, Hakan as defensive midfielder, etc. or simply because he never managed to get the team to play football at all and it was all a ****ing mess the whole time under him, but even worse whenever he used that formation, which was not a lot anyway. When he did, the guy also had Paquetá, Hakan, etc. but preferred to play Suso as AMC (who IMO would have been much better as a forward or on the bench in that formation).
Where have you pulled these stats from? Come on! To quote another famous poster: "These 'assists' were nothing but provisional crosses that the birriliance of Piatel and Rebic made them look as assists!!"

GM was a victim of having too much hope of Suso as AM :D

At any rate the difference with last season (and the one before) is that arguing Suso was the team's main problem when he was scoring and especially assisting often was outright insane. Now he has not scored or assisted in a while, he has a lot of poor stats, there's a black cloud around him, and we seem to have a few more options. If there's a good time to bench him, it's now.
Exactly! We hated him when he used to score and assist. Now he doesn't, go figure ;)
