    For Christ sake why compare Arteta who is having his firs managerial career to already established managers who' been in the game for so long. Give the young man some break please.he will later come very good. I trust in his brilliance. And this Redknapp of a guy always talk bullocks about arsenal.

    For all complaining abouit Arterta, remember got rid of dead wood mustafi, Ozil. Pepe wasnt his player so high cost put pressure on Arteta but Willian wasnt probably his idea too Edu probably looked at Brazilian market and with Luiz, Martinelli there they possibly want to attract Brazilian players. Baffled as to why willian was high wages even thought free. Xhaka is now playing decent football after good start under Wenger. The auba positions is due to Auba starting season bad and his mother being unwell. Lack of creativity meant he played Saka, ESM and laca suits playing with these more than Auba which makes it more headache. He has actaully balanced well cos Bellerin struggling and Cedric and Chambers is there. I would have kept kolasinac as back up as Tierney keeps getting injured. Partey is another one. Martinelli is back hope he is through it all. He done well to get rid of willock, nelson, amn as despite picking up form for other clubs they never had the push that Saka and ESM and perhaps im thinking sticking with one of Guendouzi, or Torreira.

    The wenger comparison is boring tbh. Wenger had a much better team. Lets remember for 15 years wenger refused to sort out the defence, a goal keeper, replace Vieira etc. Remember the frustration that everyone felt during wengers reign when the decline set in. Fact is.arsenal have signed, on the whole, poorly for about 10 years. That is the thing

  • Lauren Steel

    Redknapp you are wrong. Arteta isn't in the changing room saying "don't pressc" "stand off" "let Liverpool pass around". The players at Arsenal have been pathetic since before wenger left. Arsenal fans can't keep blaming the managers. Also, Redkanpp, it doesn't matter where Auba wants to be, you work hard for your team. Period.

    I'm content with our progress. We need 2 more transfer windows, maybe 3 given the pandemics effect on football finance. There are highs and lows in football and in 135 years we have had many many highs. There will be more to come with Arteta when he has HIS players at the club.

    The missing players are certainly a factor. Liverpool too has been the evidence of that this season. Take Salah, Mane, Fabinho and Robertson out of the team beating Arsenal and see of you get the same result. Pepe and Auba does not get their form back just because they are expensive players.

    To understand Aresenal. you have to consider things from the point of view of Stan Kroenke, the American owner. He doesn't own AFC as a sports club, it's a money-making business. The objective is NOT to win trophies or competitions, it's to take as much money from TV rights, merchandise and sales whilst spending as little as possible.The board only have 1 objctive: MAXIMISE PROFIT. Why appoint someone who's never managed a team as manager? They're cheap. Why recruit Chelsea's cast-off players? They're cheap. Why insist on off-loading players before buying? To avoid spending. Kroenke's attitude of "sod the results, it's the profit that matters" pervades the whole club, and nothing will change until Kroenke sells up.

    The stats they showed of Wenger, Unai and Arteta are basically meaningless - the reason we changed manager twice is the team has been in freefall since the transfer window we bought xhaka and mustafi for 65 million. The downward trend was happening no matter who was in charge. We have a tonne of issues with the playing staff.

    ABHISHEK GHOSH11 dögum síðan

    Average position map doesn't say anything about Arsenal's tactical approach. Arsenal simply were suffocated by the Liverpool press. We either lost the ball in our own half or played long,and Auba and Laca lost all aerial duels. It's a player quality issue,not a mentality or a tactical issue. Only thing I can criticize Arteta for is not playing Martinelli. We just lacked the technical quality to play through Liverpool's press. We didn't have CFs who can win headers if we kick it long. This myth that Arteta is defensive will go away as we get better players.

We have lost so many long serving players since emery booted them out like koscielny, ramsey, monreal, carzola, wilshere etc so ofc we are in a transition period but we have still improved defensively. People dont realise the job arteta has done with the players he has

Changing manager will not change anything either unless you get a new board willing to spend serious cash. You are fortunate Spurs have a chairman who is just as tight as yours or they would have been miles ahead of you*

    Arteta got everything wrong from the starting 11 to the subs . You can not start a CB at RB who has only started 1 other game all year and a midfielder who has hardly played all season and then start a player on left wing that really just doesn't give a crap anymore and will never be what he was due to his character and age. Aubameyang should never play another game and be sold asap. Why he has been stated games after the first 15 games of the season is beyond me but Arteta keeps picking players that have let him down all season. Only injury has forced Arteta to play theyouger talent that ended the winless drought on boxing day. This club needs a RB to back up Tierney, a LB to replace ,Bellerin, a midfielder to replace Xhaka, a new Keeper because we sold the wrong one and a new manager becausd Arteta will not learn from his mistakes of the last 15 months in his game and player management. Thats the minimum this club needs just make the Europa League.
