Very scary win, a win but slowly Dick is coming round to the problems. Played auba and lacca, now for xhaka, bellerin and cech. Its a slow process but it will happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope your right, I’m not convinced though

I see Xhaka as a fixture.

It looks that way Banbury mate, it didn't do Arsene any favours making Xhaka an ever present starter bit maybe Dick will be luckier than Arsene was.

I know its my dislike of xhaka (with good reason) but Gouendouzi and torreira just look to have more strings to their bows and look more solid. I will be surprised if cech keeps getting many more chances because he looks so far out of his comfort zone. I don't know what goes on in training but lichsteiner must look better than bellerin, he has definitely won more and at a higher level. I like the variation in our attacks but the defending, at the moment, is not being digested by the players. We just look so open and in disarray, when we are attacked. Xhakas passing in nearly every game, is leading to a goal from the opposition. We had more control of the game today but still looked so shaky by stupid errors, that should be avoidable. The same people are making them too.

I think we are seeing the back 5 as it will be, at least until Kos gets back or someone gets injured or suspended. Cech might look uncomfortable but why make him captain if your unsure of his future, makes no sense to me . He likes Bellerin clearly .

What can we do Steve, I think if we had a posters poll on Xhaka 90% wouldn't put him in their team but it's Dicks opinion that counts and if we are competitive with Xhaka then Dick will get away with picking him but if we're not competive next season then it's Dick who peole will turn on.
Managers have to stand all fall on their decisions long term and if Emery trusts Xhaka to help him keep his job then that's his call and I hope he's proven right too.

Maybe Dick can see a suspension looming for Xhaka and he’s being clever lol.

The question is Banbury mate what does Dick do if Xhaka picks up a 3 game ban and Guendouzi and Torreira are solid as a rock the team picks up 9 points without conceeding? :-)
Wait I guess and sneak him back in If we fail to be City away:-)

If xhaka survives again then surely there's nothing shifting him and for some reason he's not being judged on performance.

Eden, i think wengers reliance on an ineffective xhaka was a big part of his downfall. I just hope Dick has more about him.
