I have mentioned on here numerous times that Arteta is not the man to progress AFC. Ed47 quite rightly pointed out that he has numerically improved our defence in that we concede less goals. I also understand that progression is a gradual thing that takes time, and I do agree that we should start with improving the defence. BUT

He has consistently played out of form players, played players in ridiculous positions where every man and his dog can see how ineffective they are, in improving the defence (numerically) we have so badly compromised our attack that we hardly ever score anymore, made us so painfully predictable, one-dimensional and just plain old boring to watch. I could keep adding to the list but you get the picture.

I never wanted him in the first place. Managing a huge club like Arsenal should be a reward for the excellent work you have done at another club or in another league. It should not be given to a newbie or inherited in my view.

I have no idea whether Arteta has the majority or minority backing of the supporters anymore. Gunner62 is one fan who has pointed out on some of his posts that we have actually regressed under him if you go by points gained this season compared to under Emery. I think we have regressed too and become even worse to watch! I can't see how this will end well.

I don’t get the picture at all.

What’s this patron thing, I’m not the sharpest knife in the draw when it comes to this stuff
Is it I’m sponsoring you Tris?

{Ed001's Note - ah yes mate, sorry I probably should explain it at some point, when I actually figure it out myself. The gist is you sponsor me and you get extra stuff on there on top of what you get on the site as a thank you. Long term that will be stuff like extra podcasts, articles and merchandise as a thank you for the subscription. I was thinking a range of RFTP merch would be good to give out.} Become a Patron!

Ok, give us a couple of days and I’ll get me mrs to set it up

Good idea.

{Ed001's Note - always best to let the boss do it, that way you can't be blamed when it all goes wrong. You can use it to cover up the 0898 bill you ran up if you are clever too....

Hmmm just realised do those things still exist? That gag might be totally wasted nowadays. I can't imagine chatlines are still a thing now everyone has the tinterweb.} Become a Patron!

The raver must have known you was doing this

He disappeared as soon as money is mentioned.

{Ed001's Note - I am sorry mal, I know you two had a thing going and you must miss him. It is like losing part of your soul when you lose someone so close to you.} Become a Patron!

He’s a good old soul

I hope he’s safe.

{Ed001's Note - it seems a little odd without him dotting around from site to site causing havoc. I hope he is safe too.} Become a Patron!
