Welcome again Granit!


#7

What does that mean, “Hopefully Cazorla will come back?”


#8

He’s been struggling with his achilles for a while, he couldn’t return to training last season after his knee injury because of it. Apparently he’s a doubt for the first league game.

This is from March.

Our XI against Liverpool is going to be fucking awful.


#11

I’m excited to see him on the pitch. Welcome again Granit!


#12

WTF!? Cazorla injured again!? What a great start to the season is gonna be! :wenger: :wenger2:


#13

Cech

Bellerin Mertesacker Gabriel Monreal

Xhaka Coquelin

Wilshere Iwobi Chamberlain

Walcott

I guess it’s gonna be something like this.

“All solid in midfield”

You’ve got one who might do well (Xhaka) and a very good one (Cazorla), who is now injured and aging. I don’t think Ramsey, who is no longer the same player, should be mentioned as an option. Wilshere will be injured, and with him it’s still a case of him just not being very good. Not a serious option.
Elneny and Coquelin are, at best, decent. I’m also not a fan of the idea of any of those two, starting together with Xhaka in midfield.

This is nowhere near good enough.


#15

So, he’s finally training with us. Thought he might be a bit short for the season but looks like he’ll be good to go for Liverpool.


#16

Xhaka’s initiation.

Btw, Xhaka is the 2nd most expensive transfer in Europe this summer so far, beaten only by Higuain yesterday.
