    Lordy. I know every fan base has their twats but arsenal fans are something else. Didn’t Ox say something similar about their fans recently? Bellerin doesn’t seem to rate them either

    He is fouling til he gets a yellow. Then he sometimes has a brainfart and gets a red. Lucky that the ref is incompetent today in dishing out yellows

    Absolutely no issue with either of those challenges, as it's Spurs.

    Another crazy challenge that resulted in a penalty. Why would you throw yourself like that in the box :lol: ?

    he needs shipping out

    is a liability

    if the Arse can replace him & that CB who it looks like they got from the Dog & Duck, they might be on to something, :(

    Just a dirty, malicious bastard. Thick too. Making stupid, dangerous challenges when there’s no need for them. Ridiculous that he stayed on the pitch for 90 minutes. As well as those two gifs, the tackle that conceded the penalty was borderline red too. And he didn’t even get booked for any of those incidents.

    Fellaini is ten times better than this clown.

    It's getting harder to defend him, he does bring a good spray of passes but not enough to cover up his constant mistakes. I'd like to see what a Torreira-Guendouzi-Willock midfield could do.

    If that quote is true he can join the club of delusional, self loving and self proclaimed world beaters with Lingard and Rashford.

    That challenge on Son is absolute idiocy anywhere on the pitch, let alone your own penalty box :lol:

    It's high and should have been yellow carded, in fact he should have had about 4 yellow cards vs Spurs.

    Have never rated him, he's a less skilled version of Fellaini, hell is that even possible?

    Apart from the penalty he played really well i thought. It's strange to see him constantly doing stupid things for Arsenal as for Switzerland he rarely does them.

    When I was younger, even though I had a big brother, my parents would give me the house key every day. It's in my head that I am a leader...

    ...Unfortunately, it's just ploy for him to be able to play while I sat at home watching the key. I was so focused that He actually stole my Gameboy and threw it into the rubbish bin. That's why I am rubbish now.

    Don't really get why he's undroppable. Has he ever had a spell at Arsenal when he's been on the bench for 5-10 games?

    When you look at it Guendouzi has played himself into the team for next few weeks, Ceballos will obviously be starting again after the break and to me Torreria can do the dirty work in midfield better than Xhaka so there's your midfield trio right there.

    Aside from the brainfart of a tackle, his game against Tottenham was pretty good. Did really well in spraying passes to the wings and initiating attacks, that game is a summary of his Arsenal career, promising moments stained by really bad/rash decision making.

    He is the midfield version David Luiz. Funny how they both now play for Arsenal and form part of the spine of the team. :lol:

    I still have no clue how Arsenal thought replacing Mustafi with Luiz was going to vastly improve their defense. The only time Luiz has looked any bit decent was when he was playing in a 3 man defense and therefore was not even responsible for a lot of defending, but rather bringing the ball out and moving into midfield.

    If Emery wants to play a similar formation then Luiz will work, otherwise it will be the same rash decisions costing them.

    When they got him I actually thought it might work. But only if he's played in a 3 at the back. He's showed alot more composure when backed up by another 2 CBs and was allowed to push forward or roam when played in a 3 for Chelsea. Arsenal under UE, Arsenal played alot of last season with a 3 so i thought it would work. And then they have started this season playing him in a 2 and guess what.. same old Luiz. Surprise...

    Sry but i really questions your knowledge of football if you seriously nominate Xhaka as the worst player to ever play in the PL...

    He may not be the best midfielder in the PL and has his regulary brainfarts for arsenal, but he is certainly not a bad player.

    He's actually by far the worst and I've watched the likes of Smertin.

    Yeah Xhaka is so bad that the irish midfield General Jeff Hendrick, who also plays in the PL, had the advice to follow and manmark him over the whole 90 minutes the other night in Dublin.

    Hendrick is marginally better, just marginally. Fair enough, maybe someone like Bebe was worse? I can go with that, but I still feel he's the worst PL player ever....by far, like I mean a good distance.

    Damn, forgot about Spearing and the weird love-in that Dalglish had for him. Ok, I've done a revised list: Top 3 Spearing, Xhaka, Ali Dia (Bebe was a close shout for third spot).

    He can actually pass better than a lot of Central Midfielders, but his marking is atrocious. And he has a better shot too. Not the worst Midfielder, and certainly not the best. I love the crazy bastard though.

    Come on, he's not worst than the likes of Dong Fangzhou or Bebe
