Granit Xhaka (34)


#1812

Does the coach make him pass 5 yards assists to the opposition? Does the coach make him wear lead boots so his first touch sees the ball bounce off him like rubber.


#1813

Looking at Spurs midfield with Dembele and ours with Xhaka and it’s hard not to think they are going to dominate the shit out of us in midfield today.


#1814

:joy:


#1815

We definitely won despite him though, was pretty shit, did that Twitter thing work by the way?


#1816

He wasn’t shit at all. I think he had a solid game and was as disciplined as we’re likely to see him.

This is a very irresponsible post GunnerGirl, any sensible person should know that pictures of people drinking tea cause horrible abuse to the person on the receiving end.

The standard protocol suggests that I should send death threat to @GoonerBill1954

great bants here guys.


#1822

Great the way Xhaka dad never lied to him as a kid.


#1823

No praise for a very good performance away from home?
He was great positionally and don’t think he misplaced a pass in the entire game.


#1824

And made a superb tackle on Gudmundsson.


#1825

Guy’s terrible, absolutely terrible. He just loves to lose the ball in dangerous positions.


#1826

So sloppy


#1827

Does he actually give a fuck? Not sure Denilson was this bad. Get rid


#1828

Lol forgot to record the game but even in a 5 nil win ppl are complaining?


#1829

Xhaka is a solid player and has a simple role, to control games and to start attacks with his passes. What do people want him to do? Just run around?


#1830

No but he should be able to control the game better there. Cazorla would’ve alleviated any pressure and the possession differences would’ve been way higher with even less chances - if any - for this clearly inferior huddersfield team, that weak play from especially the likes of Xhaka allowed them to have.

A player composed on the ball who is basically a metronome is what this team is crying out for. I hate all three but pirlo/xavi/busquets would be such a huge difference if they were there instead of xhaka, and I’m
not even talking about in their primes.


#1831

The thing is as soon as he’s put under any form of pressure, he loses control of the game. A more intelligent playmaking DM would know how to deal with pressure more competently.
