Shkodran Mustafi (20)


#980

That’s why Mustafi could not lock down the CB role when Hummels and Boateng were out.
Jogi Low doesn’t trust him that much.


#981

What was that header into the box all about? and Ayew has him on toast for the 3rd. He’s so culpable. I hate scapegoating when it’s the system at large that magnifies all of their weaknesses, but I’d move him on this summer if he was ready to leave


#982

A real mixed day for him today, the challenge to dispossess Walcott was goal-saving but he’s so sketchy on the ball passing it around defence at times tho, I’d look to upgrade in the summer.


#983

we need LOADS of upgrades throughout the team

he is one for sure


#984

Not reliable. He has a lot of lapses in concentration. Need an upgrade.


#985

He took out an Everton player clean out when there was absolutely no need :joy: and then hurt his knee in process hah


#986

Time to drop him and play holding or chambers for awhile


#987

He always has a moment in a game where he inexplicably takes 43 years to make a simple pass, and then when an opposing player gets near him, he shits the bed and does something idiotic like kick his own fucking ankle.


#988

Such a liability stay on your fucking feet and stop fouling around our box.


#989

Mustafi really has people torn. Search his name on Twitter and you have a mixture between “Best player in the first half” and “Mustafi is fucking awful”

Seems people can’t decide :grin:


#990

I really can’t, thought he was much better today (1st half at least), looked stronger than koscielny and made some key challenges, overall our best defender. But I know the next flap in the box is only a game away.


#991

He’s a winner very big history . We have player many would want . Made Kane miss many easy chances .
Next year he will be the best .


#992

He also picks the wrong times to take a risk and get aggressive… he is lucky that he isn’t punished more sometimes. I just don’t think he has good intelligence and temperament, especially in our squad with a typically shambolic midfield. Today he had plenty of those moments… it was papered over with good blocks and last ditch tackles, but frankly if a defensive unit is doing their job, it is less fussy and emergency recoveries.


#993

Mustafi had a solid game imo. The one that stuck out like a sore thumb was Kosh, I thought he had a mare.


#994

Someone on the r/Gunners subreddit posted awful screenshots of abuse he, Alex Iwobi and Xhaka were getting on IG. It’s more than likely a bunch of teenagers who don’t understand that being a tit online isn’t cool, it’s actually really hurtful.


#995

I still don’t believe that the players are poor; nor do I believe our defending, in general, is that poor either, it’s largely exaggerated. Bellerin has regressed significantly (which is more the concern).

Wenger can go, Bould can go.


#996

Yeah, Kos is a bit past it.


#997

Very poor tonight. Two very badly time slide challenges aswell.


#998

In before the rage


#999

One of the worst CBs at Arsenal since Squillaci. Why did we get rid of Gabriel for this trash?
