    Godwin1 Very well-known

    Specifically regarding that abuse you're right.

    El Duderino 99 Problems But A Mitch Ain't One

    Listen, I was one of his harshes critics, but he has turned it around from a point me and a lot of people deemed as no return.

    Did well again today, as he has been doing once we finally got a manager that gives him structure.

    Do you want me to bring up his compilation of mistakes?
    & I was solely talking about his performance today
     
  4. say yes

    say yes To Sweet Soulful Vinai

    I don’t even think ‘turned it around’ does him justice.

    He’s becoming indispensable. The player I thought we were signing 4 years ago.
     
    celestis, Rex Banter and El Duderino like this.

    You see things as “sideways passing equals bad”. Considering that alone, your opinion on Xhaka’s footballing ability will lack integrity.

    Mistakes under the right set up now? Come on, try your best to find it.
    Or mistakes that we had a system to expose his weakness and hide his strength?

    You see Xhaka's playing= Great & not to mention the players you compared him to
    So yeah no point in arguing

    Figures that Arteta, who for years was our metronome, finally figured it out how to get the best out of him.

    His flaws are evident, we know (and suffer from) those, but we finally see the player who can cycle the ball and control tempo, an underrated quality on a lot of players.

    Find me some of his hollowed long passes in recent games in the right set up for him
    The right means him being a spare cb & attempting safe passes to minimize his mistakes

    Doing bare minimum is the best a manager can get out of him in England. Early on Mason Mount took the ball away from in a dangerous position to get a shot away. That's what happens when he tries to do more as he's slow af & gets caught

    Xhaka did make the correct choice of passes today. Whether it's going long/short, or taking it faster/slower. He made the right decisions.

    That was only one mistake, and which didn’t directly result in a goal. Being as good as he is, he’s allowed to make a mistake every couple of games. Every player in his position makes mistakes. Even Xavi and Alonso.

    It's about reading the game and making the right pass. If your long options are marked. You don't play long. If you don't have passing options forward, go for a sideway one, progress the ball up slowly as a team.

    He is not doing bare minimum, he is contributing a lot with his passing.

    Yeah sure whatever floats your boat
     
  15. Football Manager

    Yes you want to make forward pass for the sake of forward pass even if there are no passing options.
    You must have hate prime Barcelona, the best team in the world with a lot of sideway passes

    :lol: let’s pretend footballers don’t regularly make mistakes.
    Does Auba not occasionally miss good chances? Let’s pretend he’s not a world class striker I guess.

    Yeah you can be a great range passer only when you're afforded 100 acres of space & an hour of time but supposedly you're 'elite' at it & get instructed by the manager to not even make a single attempt whenever you're playing against a side that knows anything about pressing

    Even after that somehow you're still regarded as an 'elite' passer who turns into a mid-table player when the manager tries to hide his flaws....just wow

    Somehow you brought prime barca into this smh

    Auba, a guaranteed 20 goal a season striker who at the age of 31 would walk into almost every team if he wants to leave
    Xhaka was only wanted by Hertha Berlin in his prime

    But yeah keep making comparisons

    The post you just quoted, it wasn’t about Xhaka or arsenal. It’s about your misunderstanding in football.
