So xhaka has been named club captain guess that means he's playing every game god help us.

Agree0 Disagree0

Im gutted, apparently the players wanted him and according to sky poll of 40000 people, he wasnt in the top 5, he got 8% of the vote. It doesn't mean he plays every game but it means he's captain. If he keeps on making gaffs him or Emery will pay the price.

I was the same steve, it’s just impossible to fathom what he is seeing in Xhaka.

There isn’t honestly one stand out part to his game but numerous woeful ones.

I just don’t get it.

It's 200% Emerys choice, would he let the players chose the team and tactics? Of course not, he's merely getting the players to rally round a team mate who was booed by his own supporters.
I disagree with so much of what Emery does football wise but I think this is more about personal support than anything else.
Xhaka was already captain and an ever present regardless of his performances, nothing has changed today other than a show of public support for a colleague and a rebuff to fans who boo individuals.

There must be something they see. I don’t, but then again I cheat at Football manager, so what would I know?

27 Sep 2019 22:13:52
Whatever they see Slaam it's not backed up with results, 3 Xhaka seasons 3 non top 4 finishes after 20/ 20 before he arrived.
But booing him isn't the answer that's for sure, it's even his fualt he's not good enough at premier league level life, it's both Arsenes for buying him and never dropping him and Emerys for carrying on where Arsene left off.

Hopefully it’ll work out. I’d like nothing better for him to click and start being the player we need mate. Sadly I think his time will end with Emery’s in the summer.

I wish fellow Gooners would stop whinging about Emery and Xhaka.
We are in the top 4, we have beaten the hardest team to beat in our EL group, 3-0 away. We destroyed top placed Championship side Notts Forest 5-0 in the League Cup. We have only lost one PL match, away to top placed, Champions League winners Liverpool.
Emery is a winner with many trophies to his name,
Xhaka has always been selected by his managers and as Captain. He has 78 international caps and has won trophies. So-called fans that boo him should be ashamed.
Get behind the manager and the team, we improved last season and narrowly missed on on a return to CL football. The squad has been overhauled, with players shipped out and excellent signings made. Next season Saliba arrives. We now have 4 defenders back from injury, both fullbacks would probably be first choice selections and arguably Holding as well. Chambers (yes G62 your man crush) and Mustafi have both done well recently. The sole senior player out injured, Lacazette, is back soon and that will provide us with a fully fit squad going into a busy period. With Man U's horrendous injury list, we have every chance of getting something from the match on Monday. Exciting times ahead.

I wish you’d stop chatting utter garbage but here you are smashing it again! 🙄🤷‍♂️.

{Ed001's Note - ah but you beat Forest's reserves, how can you moan?}

28 Sep 2019 09:59:21
I know mate and Luiz has a cupboard full of medals that confirm his brilliance.

28 Sep 2019 10:47:53
Shush your not meant to mention it was Forest reserves Ed001 mate, we're supposed to call them double European champions :-) .

{Ed001's Note - oh yeah sorry. What about mentioning it was a cup competition they didn't want to be in anyway? Only I think I might have got myself into trouble with the latest Ask the Ed podcast if I am not meant to mention these things. I will have to see if I can stop Ed033 uploading it so I can edit it a little....}

28 Sep 2019 11:12:21
I wouldn't worry too much Ed mate, you like most people were already well off RG Christmas card list for not buying into his Emery and Xhaka delusions :-) .
In the summer RG was hoping City might be expelled from the champions league and we could have their place now he's hoping Liverpool might be expelled from the league cup so we don't have to play you, not exactly the hopes of a man full of confidence in either Emerys or Xhaka capacities are they ;-)

{Ed001's Note - but RG knows best, and don't you forget it.}

28 Sep 2019 12:16:58
Of course your right mate, RG does know best but I sometimes forget like Nostradamous he writes in a secret code to disguise his true brilliance :-)

28 Sep 2019 17:53:43
Xhaka's won trophies! 😂 He's won the swiss league twice and the fa Cup, elneny won the Swiss league 4 Times and the fa cup.

29 Sep 2019 13:08:23
Please tell me I'm still on the Christmas card list.
