Granit Xhaka (34)

And just like that the key merchant becomes the Arsenal skipper.

Was Granit ahead of Brother Mesut in the five captains pecking order?

Mesut is not gonna play to be the captain so…

Didn’t stop Koscielny. Didn’t stop Mertesacker before that. Didn’t stop Mikel Arteta before that so…

EDIT:

Mesut will have to be the second captain then :wink:

Great Xhaka is captain and thus undroppable. This is the man leading us by example FFS. How low have we dropped? Why not just give the armband to Mustafi?

Let the games begin!

I guess this is true…

Xhaka may have the right attitude which is fine.

But he’s just a bit shit.

Also so is his attitude, remember when he was chilling picking his nose while we conceded.

He’s just overall shit.

Gonna be donning the armband watching players run past him in midfield next season. Great.

I though we were past peak banter era, it looks like it’s back with a reboot.

Xhaka as our captain just sums this club up. Get him out the club not give him the captaincy you fucking morons.

Maybe it’s part of a sneaky plot. Don’t we have history of captains leaving :henry2:

Fucking hell

arsenal and captains, name a more iconic duo

Maybe he’ll end up like our last 3 captains, on the bench where he belongs. Captaincy doesn’t seem to mean much these days anyway.

Only silver lining is hopefully the captains curse claims yet another.

It deeeeeeead that someone who should be shown the door is being given the armband though, not that it means much here but still.

Maybe that’s why Emery named 5 captains. Wanted the curse to take them all :smile:

Hard to think of a guy less suited to being captain.

What do you look for in a captain?

Good organizational skills, calm head on the pitch, sets good example with his play and work ethic. Xhaka has none of those things.

Exceptional work ethic when it comes to picking his nose and flailing his arms when we are scored upon tho 🖒🖒 :grin::grin:
