So has he had setbacks or not?
Regardless, we should be planning for next set of players in the middle.
Xhaka seems likely fixture...
Ramsey as well?
Wilshere? who the f*ck knows...
Le Coq? Did well for a bit - time to move on.
El Neny? 4th or 5th depth option fine.. otherwise, move on.
Honestly, none of those players gets me excited atm. Xhaka started to show some things I was hoping for so maybe he makes it... Ramsey is just too inconsistent... Wilshere looks like Diaby/Rosicky/etc. v. 2.0 - best not to rely on him at all.
It would be great if we could get a top player (Lemar?) to offer creativity and drive in the middle to supplement Xhaka, let Ramsey fight it out for a spot or ship him off, and see if any of our other youngsters can break in (AMN?) and get minutes.
A squad of Xhaka, Lemar, Ramsey, AMN looks decent-ish even if not necessarily title-contending next year.
