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

    Yup, my goal is a more valuable discussion board. I'm seriously attached to this forum and posters of that ilk drive me insane because they constantly break down any reasonable discussion with irrational idolisation.

    There is the difference.

    In my mind he should be in the same boat as Juventus, Barcelona, Leicester fans or many other members from other football forums, who registered here just to flame and troll us. They were all banned, but he's still living here.

    You should get banned for dealing with members and not topic. Do you have to say anything about Xhaka, or just trolling other members.

    I said everything about Xhaka as there is to say.

    In short. We need to get rid of him. Since the day he joined us, our downhill began. He's walking mistake, not suited to EPL. Too slow, doesn't feel comfortable under pressure. Often takes too many touches and slows down attacks, can't tackle. He would be better player in the league like Serie A. If you wish him the best, tell him to go there:lol:

    All those opinions are wrong. You should check the stats, for example speed/pace, Xhaka is faster than all other midfielders at Arsenal, besides Ramsey, who is slightly faster than Xhaka.

    Xhaka handles pressure very well, he has proved that many times, when playing against top teams of PL. Watch the games. Xhaka has the highest number of tackles at Arsenal, so how cannot he tackle. Wrong again.

    He speeds up the attack with his progressive/forward passes, one of the best in PL. Check the stats. I have them somewhere but can't find them at the moment.

    What do you offer again? Haven't seen anything resembling a good post from you, the only thing that makes you standout is you constant hatred of Erlis.

    If we have to play him is it worth playing him further up the pitch? As it won't be as costly if he makes a mistake. Or are his skill set only limited to a deep lying mf? Maybe then he can make more use of his ball striking capabilities. Or is it just not worth the hassle trying to accomodate such a limited player.

    I hate that our squad is so bad that we have to consider frankly more and more outrageous solutions. We have really fallen a long way.

    One troll sticking up for another - surprise, surprise.

    I've made my thoughts clear but if you wanna suck him off then be my guest.

    To be honest, I don't even notice him let alone to notice what he thinks of me or anyone on here nor that other guy whose most famous statement is " have a horrible life all".

    Useless stuff to deal with.

    Most games Xhaka is mr consistent, you don’t expect any brilliant moments and his grass coverage is high. One of areas Arsenal lack in comparison to top teams is a midfielder with recovery speed/pace with a touch of power. None of our midfielders have this.

    I’d like Weston Mckennie as a Xhaka replacement or as an addition he’s only 20 and a good box to box he can tackle and get forward and is athletic, don’t think he’s break the bank either being at shalke

    These are the type of players for Xhaka replacement.

    Box to box **** is not what needed.
    We need a silky midfielders who play smart, read the game well, dictate tempo, skillful, play one two/one touch pass/beautiful through pass, have great first touch, ball control, tactical knowledge, decision making, passing and positioning.

    Not someone who based their game on hard work. Play ugly boring disgusting football. Run into the opponent box and leave huge gaps in the midfield for the opponent to exploit.
