Granit Xhaka: Next Captain?

Discussion in 'Arsenal Talk' started by Emeryates, Oct 28, 2018.


Which best describes your opinion of Xhaka?

  1. He's not a problem at all

  2. Can be an important player with the right partner/set-up

  3. Shouldn't be relied upon, squad player

  4. Not good enough for Arsenal and should be sold

    One of our most important players, when he doesn‘t play in midfield we don‘t seen to be able to bring the ball forward as effectively as with him. In a way Torreira and Xhaka are canceling each others flaws and creating a solid midfield defensively and attacking wise.

    I’ve always liked him but it’s also pretty clear that Torreira has elevated his game a few notches.

    Absolutely fantastic tonight.

    Imperious today. So important to our build up play. Emery's middle four structure is getting the best out of him.

    Literally world class, one of the best midfielders in the league.

    I have loved every attack over the last year from the 'experts' on here who didn't rate him. Literally just ran the midfield against one of the best sides in the league.

    Oh wait, sorry, he can't do it against a side that presses :lol:

    Best game in an Arsenal shirt. Took responsibility in everything he did and kept his composure. Great character to recover from last week.

    He was excellent, particularly in the first half where Liverpool's midfielders couldn't get near him. Haven't been a big fan in the past, but week by week he's winning me over.

    If Xhaka and Torreira can keep fit, build a solid understanding and maintain consistency then they’ll only get better. That’s comfortably a Champions League midfield right there.

    He has stepped up a level certainly today, wonderful performance and I'd happily accept that I was wrong if he could follow up on this.

    Miss the days where he would dive in and torpedo an opponent. Anyway top performance for me, can’t think of anything I would have wanted him to do differently.

    and Guendouzi and Maitland-Niles behind Xhaka and Torreira.
    Change Elneny for a Player like Partey, who can replace Torreira if injured or in less important games and we have a fantastic CM-CDM for years.

    Mugs. Where are you. We just played Liverpool the most dangerous pressing team that was gonna show xhaka up because he can't deal with pressure. Where are you none.

    I'm waiting.
