Freddie starts xhaka and mustafi?
Is there something I'm missing about these guys? Is Xhaka scoring screamers for fun in training or something? Does mustafi have incriminating photos of freddie and arsene sniffing performance enhancers?

Slight damper on my enthusiasm, hope freddie sends them out flying!

Agree0 Disagree0

I saw that team too and thought what on earth is going on!

01 Dec 2019 14:45:23
2 players I've criticised loads in the past but new manager jewellery begging for everyone?

I certainly wouldn't have picked either but let's wait and see how they do in Fredies dreamers X1.

{Ed047's Note - not sure what you meant to say there mate

01 Dec 2019 15:20:45
Neither am I Ed047 mate :-) whatever was that about :-)
I've had a word with myself and as best I can understand it what I was trying to say was ' New manager New beginning for everyone "
It's far from easy living with me 24/ 7 and even after 57 years of it I still shock myself sometimes with just how bizarre I can be at times :-)

{Ed047's Note - haha no worries mate and yes I get it now. Not sure they’re are grabbing it with both hands as currently 2-2 and Leno keeping us in it.

Haven’t seen anything from xhaka today what deserves his place in the team.

01 Dec 2019 15:47:48
Have you ever, in any match, Wilfred?

01 Dec 2019 15:49:08
Ah well! In the end you can only ever give people a chance and it's always up to them if they take it or not, let's hope Fredie is wiser than both Arsene and Emery and isn't apposed to accepting reality on Xhaka and Mustafi and others.

01 Dec 2019 16:03:54
Hoping Torriera showed enough today to get into the midfield. Hoping Xhaka, Luiz and Mustafi showed enough to play themselves out of the team 🤞.

01 Dec 2019 16:22:30
Nope sir Wenger.

01 Dec 2019 16:59:23
Biggest worry is Fredie talking about us having a good 20 minutes, where have we heard that before:-)
Positive note he also said he wasn't happy with a draw and wants wins.
1 down 22 to go for Freddie and thus season, a surprise turn around and top 4 finish would be brilliant but it's not going to be either easy or likely to happen.

I presumed that Freddie picked the shunned players to boost morale as they have been at the club a while and should on theory still have been able to do the job but so they can't feel completely cut out of the team, but says, okay, there's Norwich. Beat them convincingly. No? Didn't win. No problem. Let's try someone else next time to see which 11 works best. It's a team game and you'll get another chance.

I would hope the next game will see Bellerin, Tierney, holding and torreira start. If not, my assumption before that is nonsense. Lol.

Hi Jim I can definitely see the thinking behind bringing in players who Emery had given up on ( rightly or wrongly) because you'd expect them to have the bit between their teeth and want to make a point.
Unfortunately it didn't pan out but Fredie has the luxury of having nothing to lose and is free to experiment and gamble as he sees fit and who knows it might just come good yet!
We didn't lose away today and for us that is improvement on what's gone before, obviously not everything we'd hoped for but improvement all the same.
