    I’m not a fan of his, but credit where it’s due. He looked a different player yesterday. Lots of forwards passes, much better tempo moving the ball than usual and looking to break lines more than I’ve ever seen him do (I think). Feels like he’d been given very clear instructions and hopefully this wasn’t a one-off. Happy for him and MOTM imo.

    Xhaka is calm under pressure. Check his passing accuracy. Makes some of the most passes in the league and has a very high pass accuracy. Makes very few mistakes.

    Sure he does Manberg. He makes the least mistakes that lead to goals. The only player who has made less mistakes leading to goals is every single other player in the league.

    Ok Manberg let’s ignore the facts and just stick with the belief that highest is low.

    Considering he must’ve played some of the most minutes since 2016, it’s low.

    He had a good first half , faded slightly in the 2nd but overall his contribution was excellent. Should of ended the night with two assists as laca really should of scored. Played his part in the 3rd goal as well. He always will have that silly foal/panic stations moments in him unfortunately. He is a way better player then people give him credit for. Can we do better then him? Of course but he is not the 1 good game every 6 months nonsense that is spouted on here all the time.

    He has definitely been a big player over this run of form.

    His pass weight seem to have improved a lot, and he’s not putting other players unnecessarily under pressure by just whacking the ball at them. Long may this continue.

    We do need to look at his position though in the summer, hopefully we can get some decent wonga for him. And get a dominant presence in the centre of the park next to Partey.

    In France we have a word for players like Granit. Excellance! Magnifique!

    If we’re able to keep playing Partey next to him it’s bueno.

    If not then it’s no bueno.

    Been good these last few games, hopefully someone will go after him this summer.

    For the sake of forum, is there a way to limit Manberg's posts to 3 per day in this thread?
    It's sickening.

    He actually spends money to buy VPN and login from different ip addresses. I don't think mods can do anything about it :lol:
    Just go my way and put him on ignore list whenever a new account pops up.

    I’m using a vpn but mods are finding me... somehow. You’re an IT buff can you help me escape their detection?

    If a new member pops up on AM and praises Xhaka = Manberg.

    Dang. Thanks for the tip. Not being able to defend Xhaka is going to be torture.

    This, and also no actual Frenchman would use such clichéd French words to introduce himself.

    The good thing I think is the argument about rating or not rating him is largely redundant when it comes to having to buy at least one CM by end of the summer window. From there he can be subject to squad competition and the club can assess to renew or sell Jan ‘22 when he will have 18 months left on his contract.
