Our defending is ten times worse than last year. top 6 at best I think.

Agree1 Disagree0

Played much better since Torreira and Lacazette’s introduction. It’s clear that those two HAVE to be starting and playing the majority, if not the entirety, of the match. got to say Xhaka’s Been pretty damn good today when paired with Torreira.

25 Aug 2018 17:00:15
But what was Xhaka like against City or Chelsea.

25 Aug 2018 17:07:32
Banbury what was arsenal like against city and Chelsea terrible.

25 Aug 2018 17:09:40
Obviously he was poor mate. But you’re only as good as you’re last match and today he was very good.

25 Aug 2018 17:17:52
Didn't see the game but look forward to seeing Xhaka playing well on motd then. If he did fair play to him and Dick for sticking by him and getting a result.

25 Aug 2018 17:21:39
It doesn't matter how well xhaka plays, he's the main problem why we are letting goals in, he is crap at defending and team work.

25 Aug 2018 17:30:00
G62 he played great once Torreira came in. Was unconvincing when Guendouzi was out there and that is simply not a midfield duo Emery can play going forward.

25 Aug 2018 17:41:01
Fair enough mate, I've actually just read a report saying the same as you so really am looking forward to seeing hin shine in an Arsenal shirt later tonight.

25 Aug 2018 17:51:03
It was WH it’s no place to judge how “good” he was


25 Aug 2018 17:55:47
If he was good he was good no matter who we played.

25 Aug 2018 17:58:28
If he played poor he would’ve been judged, and judged very harshly at that. So why not give him his due when he does the job?

25 Aug 2018 18:34:39
We won't progress with the defensive side while xhaka and Bellerin don the shirt. They are not on board with the tactics. We are stuck with papa and mustaffi, we don't have to be with the other two, especially xhaka. Still a win is a win is a win.

25 Aug 2018 19:00:12
I'm not sure I've heard you're only as good as your last game before, one game isn't form. If you're poor for 4 games and have a good game that doesn't mean you've turned a corner and should be stuck with and if you're good for 4 games and have a poor game that doesn't mean you should be dropped imo.

25 Aug 2018 19:19:46
Emery is the problem he hasn’t got a

25 Aug 2018 19:47:46
62, that’s mad . It’s the level of opposition. I don’t give a damn about him being good today, it’s against better opposition that counts

Don’t pay someone on the back for a performance against a poor side, a side that we beat regularly.

You’ve been dining with Wenger lol.

25 Aug 2018 20:20:12
BG, when he starts dominating, getting regular MOMs and does it for runs of games, then i will cut him some slack. Not holding my breath. Lol.

25 Aug 2018 20:26:58
But we'd have slated him if he hadn't preformed mate, surely it's got to work both ways if not it's simply a witch hunt.
Personally I think he's a non player who somehow founded himself in the premier league but you've got to recognise any good bits if and when they happen for any criticism to be balanced.
If he had a good half an hour by his standards that's huge because I personally haven't seen him have a good 3 minutes in the past.

25 Aug 2018 20:36:15
Steve’s mind won’t be changed even if he turned in to stevie g and won us the title single handed.

25 Aug 2018 20:50:09
fair point 62 but a wolf in sheeps clothing and all that, one good performance keeps me in Steve’s gang.

25 Aug 2018 21:27:35
No one is saying the guy is Xavi now, mate. Simply saying he played well once Torreira was introduced. I’m skeptical as hell he’ll be able to keep it up but it was, at the very least, encouraging to see a midfield partnership play so well together. It’s funny because there’s all this chatter about Xhaka between all of us right now but the real hero is Torreira. Kid is tenacious with a knack for getting the ball back and the lad can play an incisive pass or can dribble past someone. They’ve needed this kind of a player for so long. Only thing I’m worried about is City going after him in a few seasons.

25 Aug 2018 21:51:45
Totally agree QTRN.

25 Aug 2018 21:55:33
Fair play mate and if I had to bet 50 quid either way I'd say he will be back to his normal self next game and long afyer but let's wait and see and hope to be wrong about him.
