Is now. Hear me out. This is not a joke. Before signing for us, he was Bologna’s 2nd best player in his first season, followed by 2 more seasons ranking in at number 4. When this move was being discussed many fans of the serie A were all saying this was an incredible signing. All stating that he was in their top 3 LB’s for the past few seasons. So this leads me to believe that unbiased fan views, he’s good enough, statistics prove that he is good enough. So what has gone wrong? I fully believe it’s a lack of opportunity. Holebas has kept him out the side, and rightly so. However Holebas is now 35!! He can’t keep up. It’s time for Masina. If we give him a run of games to get his confidence up, he could go from boo boy to fan hero. He just needs a chance. There is a very good player in there, it’s just needs to come out. The only way this happens is with trust and opportunities. Not every time he played for us last season was terrible, he did a some decent games too. It’s time for Javi to change everything, 4-2-2-2 has been found out. Not only does the formation need to change but the starting 11 as well. Starting with Masina at LB.
