The cereal winner strikes again as Southampton leap frog us but it could have been worse as both Burnley and Brighton blew thier chance to put us in 15th spot.

Big shout for Leicester who might easily have caved in after a couple of poor results but impressively they have shown real character and got themselves bang back on track.

If Spurs aren't having second thoughts already about making a quick panic decision when replacing Poch hopefully Mikel and the Arsenal players can show them the value of taking your time tonight and the rest of the season.

Up the Arsenal.

{Ed047's Note - it’s been unbelievable how bad Spurs have been, their best ever squad has just failed time after time.

Kane has done his hamstring yet again so nothing going right for them.

Agree0 Disagree0

I still fancy us for top 4.

We just need to win 2 or 3 games in a row, to get some momentum

3-1 to the Arsenal tonight.

Very true - we’ve got a good run to come! COYG let’s start tonight!

The more time goes by the happier I am with Mikel as I think he's right for the job we want done with the resources we have to offer.

I'm also becoming a fan of the Watford Southampton and Leicester managerial philosophies of if you get it wrong don't be afraid to admit it and change it, even if it means having 2 3 or 4 managers in quick succession it works for them as it has Chelsea too.

I adore the optimism, a defeat could leave us 4 points above the dreaded drop zone. Despite the Arteta optimism we have drawn with bottom three Bournemouth and lost to Chelsea who just drew with Brighton.

I pray I’m wrong and we get something out of tonight’s match. I just have a horrible feeling we have made a dreadful mistake in appointing a manager with zero experience.

{Ed047's Note - well we’ve just sacked one whose CV you’ve lauded who was an absolute disaster and took as further back than Wenger in his final years.

Can you not see a difference in us already in such a short space of time?

Emery didn’t do that in 18 months. He never even came close.

Fancy Arsenal for top 4 Malaga lol you are 14th in the league you Muppet 😁.

{Ed047's Note - definitely

How you enjoying your cheerios, no go pops and what the heck being served up from the cereal winner Raver mate?

Hi Ed, Emery had won trophies and had a decent first season: More points than the previous season, a place higher and a Cup Final. He has won many trophies in his managerial career. I felt that having eventually turned on Wenger, his replacement would suffer the same fate as soon as results turned against him, which proved correct.

Fans tend to give former players more support, hence OGS at United and now Arteta is being lorded by the fans. Of course having been appointed he must be given time.

However, I reiterate and it is only my humble opinion, appointing a coach with zero management experience was a huge risk.

Bournemouth currently being thrashed by West Ham, falling into the bottom three, with a host of injuries and 7 defeats over the last 9 matches was a match to win and we drew. Against Chelsea, many positive signs, but undone by the defensive errors that have plagued us for some time.

I hate to think of the consequences if we suffer defeat tonight. We could be only 4 points off the bottom three, having no benefit from the new manager in terms of points after 3 matches. I will be giving all my support to the team and manager today, but I cannot hide my feelings that the appointment was way too risky.

{Ed047's Note - the thing about Emery is in the whole time he was here he simply didn’t improve us as a team or individuals.

His record as a manager, the single title win with a multi million pound squad in France, was simply 2nd tier. He was never good enough for us.

We wanted to see a change in mentality and a change in our team as a defensive unit.

These are the exact things Arteta has shown in just a few games, as an example look at how Aubameyang played last time out. When did you ever see him making saving tackles in our defence when Emery was here.

Look at how Torriera is playing now he’s being used properly.

No one can legislate for the error made by Leno because up to that point Chelsea never got close to us.

Yes we need points on the board and what better game than tonight but I for one like the way Arteta is taking us which I never liked with Emery.

If we win lose or draw tonight it won't suddenly mean Mikel is brilliant average or rubbish.
Emery was given time by most fans it was only after 4 months of seeing absolutely no improvement in our defensive issues that had plagued us for a decade under Arsene despite some quality additions in playing staff by Sven that people began to have serious doubts about Emerys abilty tactics methods and philosophies and the longer he went on the worse we became resulting in our second half of last season and the first half of this season us seeing the worst Arsenal side for 40 years or more.
Emery got 4 months free ride at least give Artetta 4 games rather than the 2 you've written him off by already.

Raver, you say Malaga is a muppet for believing in Arsenal making top 4. A win tonight and 4 points behind the spuds, 5 behind Manu and 9 behind Chelsea. A good run and your backside will be twitching for certain. Come on the gunners, let’s start tonight. I believe Arteta has had a massive influence on the players, individually and as a team. I believe we are so close to getting it right.
Raver, may you eat your words.

01 Jan 2020 20:49:57
Apologies Raver, 3 behind spuds and 4 behind Manu. Come on the Arsenal.

01 Jan 2020 23:33:16
Yes andylat but you still won't make top 4 mate, neither will spurs.

02 Jan 2020 08:47:32
I’m with Malaga on this, I believe we will. All the best Raver for the new year mate.
