[quote]Where's the guy saying Xhaka was a shite mediocre signing? I came here to ask the very same thing. Xhaka has been brilliant. [/quote] I never said he was a crap signing, I simply compared the signing to the ones Man U made. Xhaka was very good in the first half. I am really glad. But,...

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: "Hey! We actually bought some dudes!" - Sandperson
Arsene plays a middle that presses too aggressively. He leaves the last third vulnerable with defenders who are too slow (Per) to adjust. There is always the danger of the quick over the top or through the gap break. This is fixable if you have a really physical holding midfielder. I am hoping Musta...

[quote]Give him time to settle in to a new club and new league before you declare him a "mid-squad guy." [/quote] Look, I hope I am wrong and if I am I will say so, but he played in Switzerland...Switzerland! The Euros are a mirage. Pogba was crap in the Euros. Do you think he is crap? Man U spe...

[quote]Xhaka has been good.[/quote] I disagree. He was our biggest signing. Man U's second biggest signing has three goals already. Yes I know they play different positions, the point is Man U signed impact players, Arsenal picked a mid-squad guy. ...

[quote]I understand that's the nature of the beast but holy shite does it suck that he has to have a controlling stake in Arsenal. [/quote] I have said this before and no one agreed.

Arsene uses the boot-camp method of training. He has been compared to a Marine drill sergeant. This gets the players fit quickly but breaks their bodies down leaving them prone to injury. Virtually no other team in the EPL uses this training method anymore. ...

Completely agree, the market is what it is and right now £30m might be a bargain. This the cost of doing business in the EPL. If Stan K is not up to that he should have bought Aston Villa....

[quote]Please Arsene just get him. A true need and a damn good player just entering his prime.[/quote] I genuinely do not think this has anything to do with Arsene. Arsene is taking a beating but Stan Kroenke controls the purse strings. He is a multi-billionaire with Wal-Mart money, but he spends...
