Xhaka: Look at that fucking atmosphere

As Arsenal’s players celebrated in front of the travelling Gooners, Granit Xhaka was collared by BT Sport and asked to reflect on a terrific 1-0 against Chelsea. 

With that fans chanting his nae, the Swiss didn’t hold back…

On a big win…

You see the atmosphere, it’s fucking unbelievable. Sorry! Yeah, you can see the atmosphere is unbelievable, from the start until the end, I think we deserved to win today. We were much, much, much the better team today. We are so happy that everything is going well at the moment. We are keeping everything that the coaches are telling us and these are the results. 

On grinding out results…

Listen, after the season, nobody asks you how you win in November, December or January. We are trying to get a lot of points as possible and after we’ll see where we win. 

On expecting emotions to run high in a north London derby…

Of course, these two teams have big history, even if they play against each other. This is football, sometimes stuff like that happens. 

On responding to City’s win…

Yeah, a little bit lucky for them. But if you play over 60 minutes with one less, then you deserve to win.

I fucking love Granit Xhaka

Gooner7190

Him, Saliba & Thomas were fucking warriors today

One Beat Off

They were and I would like to add Gabriel to that exclusive list. In addition to the whole team being superb. The score line does not do the performance justice in any way.

Oddo

Yeah.
Looks like Wenger, Emery and Arteta know better than loads of fickle fans. Who knew?

As it happens, it’s taken Partey to unlock Granit

Bruce

It was fucking amazing performance

C.B.

Agreed, only one team deserved to win, we dominated throughout.

Johnny 4 Hats

It was. Totally proffessional and without drama.

But the scary thing for Chelsea is – we didn’t have to get out of 3rd gear.

Arsene's Coat

True, did Ramsdale even make a save?

Mikel's Coat

Didn’t have to. Auba was more focused on breaking Gabi’s ankle.

Gooner7190

Apparently he made 1. I can’t recall it though

Johnny 4 Hats

Freddie: Hey! You stole my line!

Emi Rates

Speaking of Freddie, he was the commentator during the Man City game yesterday as well as today. Not sure if he’s trying to be unbiased and sportsmanlike but he talks some shite at the moment.

Can anyone tell me the lyrics to the granit xhaka song?

dominic

We’ve got Granit Xhaka, we’ve got Granit Xhaka
(To the tune of “I’m feeling glad all over).
Probably a bit more family friendly than the dulcet tones of
🎶”he thinks you’re a cunt, he thinks you’re a cuuuuunt, Mikel Arteta, he thinks you’re a cunt” 🎶 which I heard from the travelling supporters, not long after Aubameyang’s pantomime villain, dirty yellow card

Jesus of Sao Paulo

Granit Xhaka, We Got!

Finsbury Park Gooner

Xhaka is the fucking man!

Jamie

Feels pretty good at the top! Really great stuff from the boys today!

Man Manny

Such a controlled game. They did not look like conceding at any point in the game.
Long may it continue.

DefaultGray

He’s not fucking wrong! What a win!

Jeremy DG

Jamie O hara and Expression have just spontaneously combusted.

Jesuslovegunners

There was some Cole who says that a London Team was the better for the past 20 years. GUESS THATS US!!!

Elgon View

It was fucking unbelievable Xhaka!! You’ve won me over, you’re exactly the emotional leader this team need to bring The Premier League Home!!

Gooner7190

I love how every time we score, once the emotions are out, he gets the team in a huddle & his in their ear telling them to keep their heads & not let the levels drop. Ødegaard might wear the armband but Granit’s the locker room leader

Elgon View

Exactly, great mentor for Odegaard

Naked Cygan

The last time I saw such a good defensive performance from a single player was watching Maldini and Franco Baresi. Saliba was absolutely fking amazing today. Wow. MOTM

Fatgooner

Xhaka did very well not to lose it at the end: he was provoked but didn’t bite. We didn’t need a red card. We’ll done!

Emi Rates

That guy with the stupid hair who wound him up wasn’t just shit at football, he’s also really annoying with super aggravating hair. I wanted to clatter him too.

Finsbury Park Gooner

Xhaka knew exactly what he was doing, that was great entertainment. Love how this team is just next level subtle shithousery these days

Jesuslovegunners

Think a big part is down to Partey.
He was consistently arms around him to pull him out.
Great to have a mid field duo to stand up for you and pull you away from the heats of the moment

Dada

If anything I hope we win the title to complete his Franky bonkers redemption arch

Ahmed Khan

Xhaka was incredible and Partey was amazing

Ringoxiii

BT sport breaking the news of Chelsea’s move to North London?

djourou's nutmeg

no issue with him staying. a real captain who has always given 100% for the shirt. i think he represents the club well and showed at the euros what he’s capable of

i posted the above on https://arseblog.news/2021/07/xhaka-back-in-training-as-roma-move-falls-through/ a very interesting comment section to read nowadays… especially if you fancy the “i told you so” feeling his current form has given to some of us 🙂

Very interesting reading the comments there. A lot of regular posters here are not going to be happy you posted that link!

Leftie

Back at you, fucking unbelievable Granit!

Badaab

The atmosphere is fuckin excellent? Sounds like granit is infringing on blogs’ slogan

PTAFC

He’s totally turned me around and well done Arteta for changing his role. From being booed to cult hero. Take my hat off to him

All Arse

It’s great to be proved wrong. He must be so happy. I’m so happy. We are all so fucking happy. Vive la difference.
