Fellaini would be good in a deeper role, it'd have to be so deep he was off the pitch, the lump has no business on a football pitch, only Jose finds a use for him because he likes the long ball up top for a knockdown.

Ref DW I think he struggled after his injury but before that he was a very hard working playing for us, just behind Sanchez with effort imo, closed down way better than Giroud did when leading the line etc and defended well too, yep goals and assists were disappointing tbf but Id like to see him stay tbh and see what he can bring with a full fit season.

Report Whisperingdeath June 13, 2018 3:09 PM BST
The new Manager seems to have identified the main weaknesses in the team. Perhaps he is an Arsenal fan of 12 years standing. At last Arsenal have a World Class centre forward. Now they look like they are close to getting a pretty decent central midfielder and are trying for 2 centre backs and a goal keeper having secured a kwality right back.

Maybe these purchases are not World Class but they address what has been lacking for all these years. Torreira particulalrly could be a major purchase and relatively cheap if he develops. My only concern is his pretension to be a footballer. While that is to be lauded and he is good his main reason d'etre should be to screen the defence while Ramsey goes walkabout and JW gives the ball away on the edge of the oppo penalty area. Somebody has to sit and he needs to understand the others do not have the intelligence to cover while he goes forth!

Torreira is short with a low centre of gravity and does not get shaken off the ball. I expect Arsenal to raise the white flag far less with this guy in the middle. He will not like the rest go missing in action and might even inspire some others to get stuck in. He reads the game well and is exactly what Arsenal need to spare the defence too many Nikki Lauda moments.

You been saying that since the shine came off soon after joining us, scored a screamer early on but very little else since, it is a leap of faith to hope he will turn out good enough to be a main man in midfield, I cant see it but its change time and maybe a few can take a big step forward under a different leader, he and Mustafi I have  serious doubts about but equally woud be more than happy to be wrong about them both, wont be the first time.
Report Blackrock June 17, 2018 11:00 AM BST
Xhaka not a holding mid in way shape or form. Tackles on his @rse so maybe Emery has other ideas about his abilities.

Not a huge fan of the player but prepared to see if Unai can sort him out. We WILL get top 4 this year, and challenge next year.

In Unai we trust.
Report enpassant June 17, 2018 3:24 PM BST
Mustafi could be coached/molded into a decent CH by cutting out silly mistakes because he has the raw ingredients but makes very poor decisions. Xhaka has problems that are not coachable. Looking at the possibly coachable problems of his game - his passing and game awareness - they are so poor the question arises, is it worth the effort to improve him or just cut our loses and free up a space in the squad.
I read an article by a former player today (Tony Cascarino)saying Wishere doesn't fit Emery's game plan as he is not mobile enough for the pressing game ! Wilshere isn't but Xhaka is ? Nonsense, pundits just talk and write without any real sense of reality. Xhaka has the turning circle of a steam roller pulling the Titanic on land.
I just do not get why we have given him a new contract - for me it will only take a few weeks into the season before it is clear to everybody that Xhaka does not get into the side.
Report Wesdag June 17, 2018 4:15 PM BST
Xhaka & Wilshere both very average but Emery can't get rid of everyone in one go.

JW's poor injury record & likelihood to pick up more injuries because of his "style of play", doesn't help his case.
Report enpassant June 17, 2018 4:20 PM BST
I would rather Wishere as a fringe player than Xhaka as one all day long, at least he can impact a game. I mean Xhaka's song is enough surely for anyone to know his lack of quality '..he gives the bal awayyyy !)
