    Guy I know at my uni whos from germany and a big follower of anything Budasliga was raving about him when I asked about Xhaka. I'm sure he'll be a great signing, but it's only worthwhile if we sign a new striker and RW this window and a CB next season. Otherwise it'll just be another season of missed chances. Our defense isn't really the problem, nor is it creating chances, it's finishing them off.

    Xhaka is making Neny look more and more like a mid season panic buy tbf
    Tbh Elneny is a good utility player, a Dirk Kuyt type of place in the team that will be happy to play wherever he is asked.

    Maybe, but you would only play him down the middle, where we have Coq Xhaka Wilshere Ramsey Cazorla Ozil still for 3 positions. And he doesn't fit in with our system at all, Neny Coq is too defensive and lacks any creativity and Neny Ramsey leaves a ton of gaps for the counter. He seems a really average signing really

    He has a strong physical presence and can break up play pretty well. It's good for certain games. His engine is also great for physical games. With him playing I don't see us being overrun by Chelsea on the break for instance (provided you play him next to Xhaka).
    Xhaka can also put in a shift defensively so essentially we now have 3 CM who can defend. Elneny, Xhaka, Coq. The squad depth is important when we have so many games in quick succession throughout the season.

    In terms of the others:
    Wilshere: Surely has to start

    Cazorla: Can see his place in the team being less relevant now that we have
    Xhaka and he can recycle the ball and distribute just as well from deep. Very good sub option to have though.

    Ramsey: B2B and has the goals if he can get into form... but essentially the other CM will have to babysit him defensively. I would start him purely for the fact that we know that he can score goals and because Giroud is unreliable.

    Ozil: Has to start through the middle.



    My midfield choice would be something like this:

    Elneny/Coq-Xhaka
    Wilshere-Ozil-Alexis


    Now that midfield would win games. Hence why the striker is so important to get us over the line. That midfield will create a lot of chances.

    I think by himself Elneny seems a very average signing but when you look at how he can compliment the other players, you can see the value of what he offers.

    A good striker completely changes the dynamics of this team. It is so vital.

    We are genuinely a striker away from being a very good team. A defender & a striker away from being a very very good team.

    I do think the number 9 will be taken by someone worthy of it this season
