I don't who it was but one of the Ed's here was pretty adamant that Arteta was a bad choice for the arsenal job. I am afraid he/ she might have been right.

We are getting to a point where questions have to be asked of Arteta. So far, Arteta has done well by winning the FA cup, but we are at a point where we need to kick on and we are not doing that.

There are issues where Arteta has shown glaring weaknesses; the most paramount being his inability to construct attacking sequences. The team is devoid of any creativity and it is showing. We get outshot most of the times. We play horribly and that is not sustainable. Eventually we will regress to the mean and start losing games. I am afraid fans might turn on Arteta soon.

Another issue has been Arteta's inability to blood in young players. It is the history of this club to develop and grow young players. Arteta has failed in that aspect. He doesn't even play them in the carabao cup. That is a worrying sign for me. If the kids can't play even in the carabao cup, in which competition will they play?

At least Ozil gets to play in the U23. It’s the opposite strategy 😂😂😂😂.

Is Mesut actually being allowed to play in the under 23s or has he just been openly banned from doing so yet?

{Ed047's Note - well Steve Bould’s U’23 side is bottom of their league with 2 points after 6 games and a -8 goal difference, so he could definitely do with him!

SY4 mate you had me rolling on the floor. Serious question, apart from Saka (who came through under emery) , which other youngster gets minutes under Arteta? I can't think of any. There is no single youngster whom Arteta has bloodied in.

the exclusion of Saliba from the Europa league squad was preety shocking to me. Of course Saliba is going to make mistakes but why not give him that chance to make mistakes and learn from them? How is he going to learn from his mistakes if he doesn't play at all? How comes his junior partner at saint Etienne is good enough for Leicester but Saliba is not good enough to be even on the arsenal bench? surely we can afford Saliba to make mistakes against the likes of molde and dundalk.

questions have to be asked of Arteta. Why is it that this journalists just ask the wrong questions? I want someone to ask meaningful questions.

Very risky if they let him play for the under 23s Ed047 mate, what happens if with Mesut they have a complete turn around while the first team continue to struggle?

That would definitely evoke a peasants revolt for sure.

{Ed047's Note - 🤣🤣

Punani - thanks for all your replies and thoughts. Appreciate it.

Funny thing, I was reading what Wenger was saying about Saliba and young defenders. He said the same thing. You need to be brave and play them, you know they will cost you points but that’s how they learn and develop. Longterm the rewards exceed the short term pain. However, you need to be brave to make that csll.

You are wellcome SY4 mate. Appreciate your replies too. I do remember that bit wenger said. You have to risk with young players. That is how they come through. Unfortunately, Mikel is not willing to do that. Wenger's philosophy was, if you are good enough, you are old enough.
