Granite Jaka: One Year After the Famous Crystal Palace / Atonement Incident Under New Coach


Granite Jaka: One Year After the Famous Crystal Palace / Atonement Incident Under New Coach

Long walk

October 27, 2020 marks a year since Granit Jaka took off from the field against Crystal Palace. In the 61st minute, Unai Emery decided to replace Granita Jaka after the Swiss midfielder's unsuccessful play.

Bukayo Saka, the shining star of the season and representing the complete opposite of the emotional connection to the fanbase, was waiting for her performance. When the fourth referee lifted the board and the number 34 flashed into view, the stadium buzzed. As Jaka left, there were sarcastic screams and then the then 27-year-old reacted.

First he raised both hands, and when the noise intensified, he put his hand to his ear. Eventually, when Saka ran past his captain, Jak could be seen saying "Fuck off" to the crowd. He ripped his shirt over his head and trudged down the tunnel.

In the weeks that followed, Unai Emery drove the midfielder out and the captaincy was stripped of him. He missed the next three Premier League games, during which time Unai Emery was removed from his position.

Freddie Ljungberg took charge while the search for a new coach continued and Jaka returned immediately to play a 2-2 draw at Norwich City. Jaka played in all games under the Swede except Arteta's last game as Pep Guardiola's assistant. In which Arteta watched as the team he would soon take over was torn apart by Manchester City and Kevin De Bruyne.

Ransom

Arteta's arrival brought about a change in Jake. It took time, but in the 3-4-3 Arteta system, the Swiss midfielder formed a strong partnership with Real Madrid's hired Dani Ceballos. The Spanish coach acknowledged the weakness of the team's defenses and the cover for Jacqui and Ceballos with three central midfielders was tactically successful.

Against Manchester City and Chelsea in the FA Cup, the midfielders were shrewd and consistent in defense. Xhaka lifted his second FA Cup and the turnaround was complete.

The new season has brought its own challenges. It also brought competition to midfielders. Thomas Partei's signing sparked controversy over how Arteta would pick two or three midfielders.

With the move to the top three, the Xhaka / Partey combination is what could have formed a strong foundation for a game at number 10. Arsenal lacked creativity, and while the 3-4-3 defense system was decisive, it limited the gunners' chances. ...

Switching to backing 4 will leave vulnerabilities, and Xhaka and Partey will provide security as well as connect the game between lanes.

Jacqui's turning point was surprisingly quick, and while many fans have yet to forgive the Swiss midfielder, he is once again a stable figure in the team.
