Prime Ninja and Vidal were scoring in double digits. Even Guarin. That needs to be the target going forward under inzaghi (min. 5 goals). Also needs to stop whining to the ref, just get on with it. And I'm convinced he can deputize behind Brozo when needed. Just needs to be more disciplined.
They also didn't get the assists numbers barella gets.

You might wanna double check the numbers.
I have.

Naingolan only has 2 league campaigns with more then 5 assists.
Vidal has 4 seasons of 5 or more assists.

Barella already has 3 seasons. He also has a season of 10 league assists neither vidal or ninja has ever reached 10.

So yes they are better goal scorers but he provides more assists.

Heck, we all want him to do better, but obviously he's reached some kind of performance plateau in part due to a very long season. Barella has plenty of co-conspirators in the anemic attack display we've seen exhibited since 2022 tbh.

If I'm not mistaken Vidal has hit double figures for both while at Juve (serie a only) others times ranging from 7-9 for both categories. This on top of putting in WC performances on a consistent basis. This should be Barellas target going forward. He's 25 now, so starting next season. Coz 1 goal on top of subpar performances game in game out is not cutting it. He still owes the fans a stellar performance for the RM red card. He wanted the armband and the big bucks, he's gotta deal with the expectation that comes with it

For everyone comparing Barella with Vidal and Nainggolan, this is my explaination.

Barella can do assist from the right side, and link up with our RWB like Hakimi, plus he going forward with ball, but not shoot often like Nainggolan.

Vidal in my opinion do more defensive duty than Nainggolan or Barella, because Pirlo and Pogba.

Barella most likely an unique type midfielder, no one like him, he is special because his small stature, plus good playmaking ability.

Vidal is Vidal, Nainggolan is Nainggolan, Barella is Barella. They are world class in their peak.

Yes! Good positioning for the goal, when I saw how many of our players are upfront I knew they smelled a goal

Barella actually reminds me a little bit of his idol, Steven Gerrard.

Two very good games in a row for him. He acts like he can taste the Scudetto and he's playing for it!

He is more of a box2box runner nowadays, but rather have him in that position than a lot of other players we had there in the last 10 years. It's a good problem when you can say Barella is the worst starter in our midfield

It's beyond me how you think he's overrated, he showed more than enough that he's quite special. Just needs to mature and be more consistent of course.

He's talked about as the best midfielder in Italy and he's not even the best at inter. Too many games he goes massively missing.

Last night he dropped another complete stinker and no one bat's an eye.
