granitxhaka My first day at @Arsenal :muscle::+1:


Is he injured already? :joy: :wink:



Welcome again Granit!


What does that mean, “Hopefully Cazorla will come back?”


He’s been struggling with his achilles for a while, he couldn’t return to training last season after his knee injury because of it. Apparently he’s a doubt for the first league game.



This is from March.

Our XI against Liverpool is going to be fucking awful.


I’m excited to see him on the pitch. Welcome again Granit!


WTF!? Cazorla injured again!? What a great start to the season is gonna be! :wenger: :wenger2:



Bellerin Mertesacker Gabriel Monreal

Xhaka Coquelin

Wilshere Iwobi Chamberlain


I guess it’s gonna be something like this.


“All solid in midfield”

You’ve got one who might do well (Xhaka) and a very good one (Cazorla), who is now injured and aging. I don’t think Ramsey, who is no longer the same player, should be mentioned as an option. Wilshere will be injured, and with him it’s still a case of him just not being very good. Not a serious option.
Elneny and Coquelin are, at best, decent. I’m also not a fan of the idea of any of those two, starting together with Xhaka in midfield.

This is nowhere near good enough.


So, he’s finally training with us. Thought he might be a bit short for the season but looks like he’ll be good to go for Liverpool.


Xhaka’s initiation.

Btw, Xhaka is the 2nd most expensive transfer in Europe this summer so far, beaten only by Higuain yesterday.


What is he signing? Surely, it’s in german @Persona :bellerin:


JC is loving it :campbell:


How did he do?
