    If he wasn't such a bottler when it came to passing the ball forward, we'd be talking about one of the best CM/DLP/DMs in world football.

    Never gives the ball away, can always receive under pressure, can play el neny tikitaka, amazing stamina. Just hesitates too much when he has to play it forward, needs to back himself. I reckon if there aslnt man who can help him go up a level it's Arteta

    Think that is spot on. Under Wenger is was too much laissez-faire and that caused us to lose too many matches we didn't need to lose.

    Remember Wenger telling Özil when he brought him in or was trying to get him to sign, that Arsenal was a dream destination for a player like him where you just played football.

    Absolutely hated the constant fouling and sideways **** I saw from him in the pre-season game but boy, has he turned it all around!
    Credit to him, worthy of my support if he continues to put in such performances. Amazing attitude from him as well.

    He can take Torreira's spot if he wants to, at least he won't be crying about Italy every week.

    I like how Elneny constantly plays a 1 or 2 touch game. Both Xhaka and especially Ceballos could learn from that. Sometimes they hold onto the ball for too long and take an extra touch or two instead of keeping the ball moving.

    I don't think Elneny should be a starter for us but he's a decent back up/squad player.

    A very needed squad player for us, nothing spectacular at all but you need these types of players, the ones who play limited game time but still turn up when needed.

    A lot of successful teams have had players similar to this over the years; Darren Fletcher, Phil Neville, Nicky Butt etc, theres plenty of them, never really first choice, will get the occasional run of games before being benched again but continue to turn up with no issue when required.

    Usually these players come through your academy, no one really buys them there just there.

    Decent as a squad player and a very serious consideration for big games where we don't have a lot of the ball.

    I get your point and it's United players you're talking about, but really you can't compare Elneny with Neville or Fletcher.

    Elneny has maxed 870 EPL minutes for Arsenal while those players have many over 2000 minutes seasons for United, and usually ~double Elneny max. minutes.

    I thought he was pretty great tbh. I don't like the lack of forward passes, but I do feel pretty safe with his one and two touch game when we are playing out of a press.

    He plays a calm game. Perhaps sometimes a little unambitious, but he was very quick back in to shape defensively, and seems very coachable.

    He played alright same against pool. Not the worst or best. Gives his all is what is all I ask for. Good squad option

    A lot of people changing their tune on Elneny now. He's a real asset to the team, except if he blocks us signing Partey because no one wants to buy him and our home grown quota isn't met. Be careful what you wish for.

    I really hope he keeps Douzi out the team. Don't know what came over us when we thought he was the next big thing.

    Douzi has a great attitude for a messy night out, when looking to fight the Uber driver.

    Think Arteta likes him because he is not only dependable but doesn't put himself above the club.

    A humble Pharaoh. You love to see it.

    He already is. Douzi is dead last. If we sign a midfielder Douzi's basically 5/6th choice CM already. Don't forget he got surpassed by Ceballos too.

    From the reports, seems like he has turned down genuinely good offers. Emery loved the kid and he is turning down such a beautiful reunion.

    If Ego translated to talent, Douzi would be the Ronaldo's of midfielders.
