Granit Xhaka: Return Of The Xhak

So it's now actually confirmed and not just rumour that he is the betting scandal player. Just reading on my phone and articles are saying the ref AND Arteta were urging him to take the fk so is Arteta distancing himself and the club? I can't decide whether Xhaka was in on this or whether his talk of risk taking is all nonsense and what he did was his natural slow, plodding game. Even he isn't that slow imo. We desperately need top 4 and despite their respective struggles, I'm all I'm on Partey and Sambi 🙏 This guy should be no more than the last resort.

❤️ Xhaka ❤️
I just read the complete interview about his Liverpool red card. All I can say is that stupidity and arrogance is a very bad combination. The guy will get red card every game and still try to explain why it's not really a mistake. Narcissism at its best.

Think this is both his strength and weakness. Think the arrogance leaves him pretty much unreflective and unable to learn, but also quite convinced about his own brilliance and superiority.

As long he don't do his bad stuff i won't be worried with Granit with him we look better in midfield even tho he need to act bit as leader when we want to dominate but hopefully him and Partey can keep fit and away from silly card until end of season.

Nobody laughs on my "jokes" 😫
He really sticks out when he plays higher up the pitch. Gets easily by-passed imo and he lacks the hip movement to quickly turn and face the play. It’s not really his fault though. He’s a deep midfielder and always will be. However, he saved our ass with that header so fair play to him. I would like to see Lokonga play in Xhaka’s role in a 433. I think it will be someone in the mould of Salah-Eddine but it’s too early for that.

I thought he was very good yesterday to be fair.

I think it's just a case of trying to manage him through the remainder of the season with the minimum amount of silly moments, if that's at all possible.

It's best for everyone involved that he moves on in the summer though.

Why so serieuse?
He is, to be fair, and I have wanted him gone for what feels like decades. Obvious starter until the end of the season, but also an obvious player to be improved upon if we're serious about CL.
Don't necessarily agree with that. I've always maintained that he's a similar level to Henderson, and the latter is part of a CL/PL winning team. If we work to mask his defects, his strengths shine more. He's finally next to a competent midfielder for a change so we can see his impact compared to a Lokonga, or an AMN.

His red cards and penalties conceded cloud ones thinking to make him look worse than he actually is.

We've havent achieved top 4 since he's been here (5.5 seasons!). In that time he's been a mainstay in midfield and Captain for a lot of it

On all available history of Xhaka at Arsenal he has shown he is not a CM that wil allow us to finish top 4
 

Maybe

You're wrong, no?

But... but he is better than Elneny so how can we not play him?
