Someone please enlighten me about where Arteta is pulling these stats from? He's talking like a fecking crazy person.

He is just buying some more time for himself. He thinks when he throws in these numbers, it will take some time for people to work them out and realise that it's BS and he will be in the job until then.

Totally bizarre!
And if his team talks and prematch instructions are anything like this, then it explains a lot.

My interpretation is that if a team has 70 % possession then that team has a high percentage of winning based on overall stats. Might have been the case with Man City where they won most games anyway with high possession stats but the problem pure and simple is we have 70% possession and do nothing with it. It`s exhausting watching us string 7 passes together and are no further up the pitch. Handbrake off please COYG.

Possession football has been completely debunked, and anyone still holding onto that statistic is a fool. It’s what you do with the ball that counts, not how long you hold it. I wonder if Arteta has looked at the stats for teams that only play one style, who never deviate whatever the situation or opposition? I am pretty sure they will have a poor win rate.

The issue with his possession football is we are not scoring. And possession football have to go hand in hand with very good defending and being clinical. You will likely need to score first and out score the opponent as we have seen a team can have only 30% with two chances and scoring from them both.
