I liked what I saw.
Xhaka can suck on a lemon, or lemons (plural)
He’s gonna be unreal for us.
Top four done if he stays fit.
The third player should be Torreira imo. A press proof DM who is also decent advancing play. An AM who can also build from the back and a B2B.
Torreira-Guendouzi-Ceballos seems like a good combination on paper. But obviously we know one of them is gonna make way for Xhaka. Personally I'd also alternate between Guendouzi and Willock. Willock is probably better suited for the away games with his pace and power.
Since is when is Torreira press proof? Remember some pretty bad give a ways last season. Off the top of my head away to Wolves and Liverpool which directly resulted in goals.
Can’t believe we upgraded on Ramsey while making our team younger!
Torreira is certainly not press proof and often looks like he doesn`t want the ball.
A hospital touch on him at times, too.
Hope he pushes Xhaka to the bench and plays with Torreira and Özil.
That was the point in signing Cabellos imo.
Very tidy player.
From the highlights I liked what I see, but it is obviously too early.
He seems to have similarities with the way Ramsey moved and attacked the spaces.
His backheels are so Ramsey-esque but then he seems more composed on the ball.
Emery will probably want to accomodate him on Özil position, so on away matches he can alternate between the two.
The guy is a certified baller, could see it after his first few touches. If he has the tenacity to match then he'll be a hit.
Can see him absolutely running rings around some of those midtable cloggers.
I thought he did well to receive the ball under pressure and the giveaways that I recall were when his first touch failed or he miss passed. Fair enough, I don't doubt your memory but I don't recall it as a major problem or at least not before he dipped in form.
At first I wasn't bothered about not having an option to buy, fu*k me I wish we had one now.
Looks silky af.
I thought he shows enough in the time he had today. Very good close control and vision. I think if he stays fit he will be very important in that midfield.
He's special, you can tell. Quite a bit of bite to his game as well.
