Our style of football at the moment is awful. As much as I like Mikel, this cannot go on too long without seeing signs of improvement. Whose fault it was they we didn't get a playmaker signed in the summer, I don't really care, all I know that we look effing terrible and to be honest if there was no change in the matches against Leeds and Wolves then his position will look very dodgy. If that came about, I don't know who would replace him.
To much more important things
Great news about the vaccine.
Well done the scientists and the people who took part in the trials

Has he improved us defensively? Yes.

Before the Villa game we had the best defensive record in the league which was a positive start. He's come in an addressed our main issue which he HAD to do first. Unfortunately, the only way to do that was to sacrifice our attacking options with a back 5 and 2 deep midfielders covering the defence.

I don't like the predictability of our football at the minute and it's horrible to watch going forward but it will improve. Arteta is the right man for the job but he needs time and multiple transfer windows. Bringing in someone else won't make any difference at all.

Well said Glenn.

Good post Glenn, sick to death of reading posts calling for Arteta. The man has literally taken over a squad that needed overhauling, he has brought in some experience and played some youth. The man needs a few windows to get this team right, just like any other manager would! No one out there could walk in and improve what we have. That being said he needs to put a little more trust into a team and then play them every weekend for me.
AMN Holding Gabriel Tierney
Partey Ceballos
Pepe Willock Saka

Id bring Ozil back into the squad in January and use him in the 10 with the energy of ceballos/ Elneny and Partey this should cover us defensively with Ozil playing.

93 - I’d love to see the back 4 return as Tierney is no CB and Bellerin isn’t a wingback

. Leno
AMN Saliba or Holding Gabriel Tierney
. Partey Elneny
Willian or Martinelli Ozil or ESR Saka or Martinelli
. Aubameyang

Not convinced by Pepe on the wing but really need those chances to fall to PEA rather than Laca.

Would be great to bed Saliba in now ready for next season.

I just wanted to say, I’m giving Mikel some stick as I think he deserves it for being stubborn and illogical decisions. He also doesn’t adapt during games. We are boring as hell to watch.

I also acknowledge that he’s improved our defence but at what price? That’s like a cheating partner saying they haven’t cheated for years but they’ve never been out to. He has to improve the defence while still attacking or like the relationship - it doesn’t really work.

I personally think he has made small improvements but got a long long way to go and it’s his second season plus a good few million spent. I’d hope to see Improvements more than I see today.

While he drops Ozil - I ask serious questions
While he plays PEA isolated on wing - same again
While he plays AMN left wing - same again
Numerous other head scratchers

I’m just saying he’s got a long long way to convince me and I shouldn’t be afraid to say that.

I also don’t get why we allow players 3 seasons to settle, managers 2 years to settle and have low expectations.

I don’t want him sacked but I don’t want to be here next year 12 games in and still discussing terrible decisions.

I really don’t care about the results this season or last - I care about the performances as that will determine our long term success.

Emery was terrible in the unbeaten run but people bowed down to him. Performances were poor and people hammered anyone who said so.

Well, performances aren’t great. 2 shots on target against Utd. A crazy penalty that polished an ok performance. Outside of the penalty, we wouldn’t have scored if the whistle only blew yesterday. Same against Leicester and Villa. Even a Fulham gave us a test - Fulham.

I stand by my cynicism of Mikel and where I’ve praised him but I’m certainly not happy with him and would not cry if he was replaced. However, I’m happy to see how this season progresses and how we perform. I’m not flying a plane.

Be honest, with the squad at Mikel’s disposal - what do you expect.

I’d expect top 5 or he’s failed. I’d exoect a significant reduction in goals and shots against. Hopefully 65 goals scored and under 38 conceded.

Hopefully not too direct but laying down my expectations for 20/ 21 - top 5, gf 65, ga 38. If those stats get us 7th then I’m still happy as that’s improvement and good football.

Oh Sy I wasn’t saying people in here were asking for him to be sacked, more so on twatter. and i'm definitely not saying he doesn’t deserve criticism, i was screaming at my tv on sunday directly at Arteta 😂 we have to give him time to get this team playing, seen a post the other day criticising him about telling the players where they need to play the next pass, I personally don’t think that is a bad thing, and it will soon come second nature to the players in what direction they need to be playing. There are still plenty of players in that squad that wouldn’t get a sniff at city or pool, and that is what we need to remember we have a team of squad players baring a few worldies, we are never going to be top of the league after 12 games.
