What ever happens this season happens on Mikels watch, where ever we finish and how ever we play judge him honestly.
Take nothing away from him and make no excuses for him, it's his gig and if it's a flop or fantastic it's down to him.
We mustn't blame Stan for Arteta team selections, formations, substitutions or playing style, if he's good enough he will compare well in an honest evaluation and if he isn't good enough then Arsene Wenger replacement contestant number 3 please take to the stage for the 21/ 22 season.

I agree mate

I will also say can someone come on here and tell me how that team selection is helping PEA bloody ridiculous.

04 Oct 2020 16:36:52
That is well said 62,very true and honest view of the present situation.

Don't you think the board should take full responsibility for not signing a beast of a CDM.

04 Oct 2020 17:40:37
Surely it depends on whether any beast of a CDMs wanted to come to Arsenal Moe mate and whether we had the funds to pay the fees their current club wanted.
Take Partey for instance, what if he is he happy living and playing in Spain?
What if he and his family didn't living in London?
What if he didn't fancy swapping champions league for Europa league football?
Perhaps he didn't fancy working under a rookie manager but preferred to stick with the experienced proven Simeone.
There can be countless reasons a player doesn't want to move or doesn't want to join a particular club in a particular city or particular country
If the manager had wanted a CDM from QPR Watford Brentford or Millwall then I'm sure it would have been much easier for the board to accommodate his choices but players already at more successful clubs are not easy to entice away to a less successful club unless you offer absolutely crazy wages they could never get elsewhere and even then they might not even be tempted mate.

The market didn't stop at either partey or aouar mate. If we have 30 mil to shop with why looking at 50 it doesn't make sense.

04 Oct 2020 18:45:29
I don't honestly know Moe mate, I used Partey because of the rumours but yes there are others we could have gone for, did Mikel not fancy others? I don't know.
All I do know is people love to blame the club board and Stan for everything, including our very various managers strange decisions team selections and formations.

Hi guys ain't been posting for a while but reading a lot. As for Mikel yeah its his selections, but the past what 5 years have been a joke on players brought in and he can't be blamed for that.

This mess will take a season or 2. We've got players to shift out that cost far to much and couldn't hack the PL. The blame for that lays firmly with the Kroenke family for not managing the club properly.

As Ed 2 has been saying the backroom was a mess we can see just how much now.

But keep the faith guys onward and upwards.

Good result.

04 Oct 2020 20:37:08
G mate, I'm not saying MA shouldn't be blamed if results didn't go well for his team selection and formation but we are crying out loud for a strong CDM and a creative player, so how can you put all the blame on him if he hasn't got the resources.

Hi Saga so pleased to hear from you mate, how's life on sunny Cyprus? Keep safe mate.
