Yeah, but it seems like this Sven bloke can spot a half decent player!
Like Aubameyang? Don't think you really need to be an expert to know he's good!

Xhaka offers nothing to this team apart from a lack of defensive awareness, side way passing and the tendency to lose his head and get red carded.
Still what do I know, I haven’t worked in football for 30 years....but I do have eyes and common sense

Ah yes, the "Swiss" bundesliga. Home of borussia munchengladbach and bayern Munich; no decent players have ever played there! :D

I've defended him quite a bit; he looked so good at the Euro Championship, but he's slow, his passing is variable at best, his tackling always makes me worried and the way he stands there and watches opposition players run past him makes my blood boil (Swansea was a horrendous example, and for me, the final straw.).

Lord Wenger has been playing him further forward recently, but he looks no better.

It's time to offload him back to Germany.

He like Wenger is a good example of how this club is run - should have been replaced years ago but just like wiggy keeps giving Wenker a new contract, Wenger keeps persevering with players who keep letting him down (like Xhaka), then we wonder why we are stagnating?.

:roll:

Any other big club would cut their losses and get shot of him for say £20M, maybe more in this ridiculous market, and move on, so tedious.

We sound like a bunch of moany old gits at times... :blah: :blah:
However Xhaka has done fuck all, he has two speeds, slow and dead fucking slow, I wonder how he gets out of bed in the morning, the lazy fucker!
Ozil (when he turns up) looks Dynamic compared to this money grabbing waste of space....

Feel better now..... :D

Like Aubameyang? Don't think you really need to be an expert to know he's good!
Nick do you think Wenger would have done this transfer on his own, no fucking way!
He would have offered £30m then after it was turned down would have raised it by a squid, remember that embarrassing offer!....
So Sven will do for me, at least he has a grasp on transfer prices in 2018, other than that arrogant dinosaur!...

We got the likes of Ozil, Alexis and Lacazette before Sven so why not?
But even with the new guy in, we left it so late there was a danger of it not going through to the point we even paid Batshuayi loan fee.

However anything that takes power away from Wenger must be good.

Loan fee was a bit cheeky but thanks to Chelsea for really making this deal possible eh?
Without their interest in Giroud, could have been another Rocky Transfer Horror Show!

It's painful to see how xhaka hasn't learnt any defensive lesson this season. It always seems to be wrighty highlighting his lack of commitment to defending our 18 yard box. He doesn't challenge, doesn't track the running attacker and literally stops when he sees the penalty area.

At times?

Also, less of the 'we'. I for one never moan about the shitfest our club has become from top to bottom, the unbalanced squad, useless defence, lack of leadership on and off the pitch, lack of decent coaching or tactics, high ticket prices to compensate for the aforementioned overpaid shit players....

Now look what you've done :wink:

Think he might needed to have been first time round when the bloke was at St Etienne
