Wow. Shows how highly he's thought of.

Basel, Borussia Munchengladbach, Arsenal and the Swiss national team. Lets look further:

Basel - a club that have reached the last 16 of the Champions League and the semi finals of the Europa League. A club that since the 90s have had Christian Gross, Paolo Sousa, Thorsten Fink and Alex Frei as notable coaches.

Borussia M - a club that were last relevant in the 1970s

Swiss National team - since 2000 the only notable manager they have had is Ottmar Hitzfeld from 2008 to 2014, after he ended club management at Bayern. A has been ? Probably.

I didn't even have to do that digging, the fact that its Xhaka of all people, singing Arteta's praises should be of no surprise to anyone. Teacher's pet praises teacher, nothing to see here.

We lost 3 in a row on 3 separate occasions last season. The man is the epitome of book smart over street smart.

We lost 3 in a row twice last season and the first three were interspersed with a 6-0 league cup win at West Brom

Also first 3 losses were COVID related mayhem.
Laca and Auba had attended a party and contracted COVID putting the dressing room in disarray.

Couldn't have been too bad if Arteta appointed Laca captain for the majority of the season while he did his best Sanogo impression.

To be fair, hard working is Jesus' main quality, isn't it? Even his detractors only moan about his goal scoring ability etc, but never his work rate.

If we get off to a bad start the fans will turn on Arteta. The first ten games will determine his Arsenal future.

Another comfortable workout! Arsenal 4-0 Chelsea. Good looking goals too. Jesus, Odegaard, Saka, Lokonga all had good workouts.

Now I will take notice, a good win vs Chelsea matters at any time!!!

Reasons to be cheerful.

For me Jesus and Saliba have given us a marked improvement in their positions.

Jesus could be a game changer, the good thing as well is if subbed on Nketiah is so hungry for goals he'll put defences under pressure so they'll get no rest between the two strikers.

Something we haven't had since prime Auba.

Seems to be a lot of positive stuff going on

But I really wish we'd get rid of Xhaka and Tavares

In that order.

Xhakha might be OK when used sparingly and little upfield . He'll be less stressed, especially in EU lge. Useful squad player w/ experience.
