    Arteta is a good coach, but throughout his season he mad lots of mistakes choosing who to play, again and again. Remember the first half of the season when everyone was screaming for him to play Saka and ESR, he did eventually play them (thank God) and we immediately started playing better. Alas, it was half a season too late. He needs to be more confident in the youngsters and drop players like Auba. It's Hale End fc as far as I'm concerned.

    *All you Arsenal fans wishing for Wenger to leave never thought be careful what you wish for did you? Wenger got you in the CL 99% of the times which is a huge revenue spinner and a lure to bring in decent players in transfer windows. No Arteta is as overated as Frank Lampard management wise (although Frank got us CL in his first season with a transfer ban) has now made you a mid table team. Even if Arteta is sacked, the board will bring in another yes man who gets no money. Plus you will be out of the CL again. You are fortunate Spurs have a chairman just as stingy as yours or they would have left you behind*

    Imagine if this was Mourinho, he’d be blaming the players, the ref and the weather before he’d even think about taking on the blame... That being said, I do think players nowadays get way too much protection and notoriously get away with putting no effort in and Arsenal is a great example of that Players haven’t shown any guts or cojones in years, only care about their pay checks, hairstyle and social media 🙃

You can't just blame the arsenal players yes they are terrible but the manager does not help them at all. The fix is so simple.. get a real manager with real experience and release your garbage and don't hire a clown who's going to offer willian 200k a week contract 🤣🤣

Stop playing Cebellos , stop playing Belerin, Xhaka... and be more courageous against teams that you are frightened of . Drive forward , play to our strengths, incite attacks and confidence.

    If I played last night and heard my manager speak like that I would be fcuking embarrassed. Disgraceful performance! We are a mid table team because we consistently perform inconsistently. Our so called top players have huge weaknesses that are so glaring it is scary and in reality cement our current position in the league. 12 defeats?!?! Wow.

  • lazygamer
    lazygamer12 dögum síðan

    i don’t know what all these fellow arsenal fans think will happen if we sack arteta and get a new manager in, the problem is so much bigger than that from the board down we are such a terribly run club and arteta or any manager can’t change that. i agree we shouldn’t give arteta free passes and act like results and performances like last night are acceptable but people forget the rebuilding stage we are in, we need to come to term with the facts that getting top 4 in our current state is unrealistic but also remember how arteta has also got us playing some of the best football i’ve seen for a while and also has instilled this fight i haven’t seen in the team for years, before arteta if we ever went 3-0 down like we did against west ham that would be game over and absolutely no chance of getting back in it, let’s not forget too that play things have dropped off recently but arteta has transformed our defence into a much more solid defence a couple of months ago only man city had conceded less than us and that’s a position that we’ve all said has been so so weak for ages. Arteta’s main problem is consistency and that’s where his inexperience comes in but i think people need to look at the bigger picture we have a manager who’s never managed before and when you look at some of the results we have especially against the top 6 he’s outclassing even wenger in his final years. It’s going to be a painful and annoying wait but we need to trust Arteta and back him because once he can get some more signings in and make this team consistently play how we all know it can we can be a dangerous team

We aren't winning the Europa league as better sides than us still in it. When we get knocked out he should be sacked, but I bet that doesn't happen as deluded fans who seem to like losing week in week out will no doubt keep him in a job way longer than he should be!

    Arsenal's build-up game involves lot of long passing and support range is very far to create any one touch or atleast quick passing. Liverpool exploited this by pressing in numbers. They pressed every player and we were not able to string a single pass.
