Brave of Arteta to play the young players. Glad it paid dividends. Saka, martinelli and emile smith rowe were excellent.

we have all being clamoring for the young players to be given a chance. At least we knew they will fight for the badge as opposed to semi-retired professionals like willian who is just here for his contract.

I am afraid Arteta might go back to playing the old pros again and we might again see the terrible performances we have been seeing. I hope he learns from this match and keeps playing the young players.

I think that yesterday showed that there problems with Luis and Willian. Not saying the youngsters are the solution: i hope they are. But yesterday we played with something of a spine, even if we didn’t always keep our structure.

Shame we’re stuck with willian for another two years maybe we can ship him off to China.


2.) 27 Dec 2020 23:14:27
The secret is to get the correct mixture of experience and youth I’m sure that’ll come soon we have some fantastic young players but unfortunately some of our more experienced so called leaders have gone missing and one of them unfortunately happens to be our top goalscorer and club captain, PEA needs to get with it sharp, if not we need to sell him in January whilst he still has some value and before he becomes the rotten apple in the cart.


3.) 28 Dec 2020 16:37:31
John Mcvicar wrote a book called the Rotten Orchard, inferring that some instructions are full of rotten apples.
That book keeps coming to mind when I think of our club right now.

Deeply dissapointed by our two recent losses. You can tell this team is devoid of quality in most areas of the pitch. It will be a miraculous achievement if Emery wins the europa or finishes in the top 4 with this lot.

The biggest worrying thing for me is that the team is in serious need of investment to get in the top four never mind challenging for the title.

The owner believes you can achieve both through our self sustaining policy but that can only work if we are winning trophies so that we generate more sponsorship but how can we win if we don't have a good squad? It is a vicious circle.

Unai Emery as much as he was not my first choice, is a decent coach but that team is so rubbish he can't do much. we have already fallen behind city and liverpool we risk falling behind the spuds and chelsea unless we invest heavily. United will get a new manager next season and they will spend heavily. I expect them to challenge for the title soon. I expect them to get poch or zidane and you can imagine how much they will spend then.

Punani chill out. You forgotten all ready we destroyed spurs like a week ago as well as having an impressive unbeaten run. I agree the team is short of some world class talent but we’ve taken a massive step forward. Yes we’ve lost 2 games on the spin but do you remember what happened last time we lost 2 games on the spin?

We’ve not been great of late I admit, but in my opinion it’s no coincidence that form has dipped since the formation has changed and Lacazette hasn’t been starting.


2.) 20 Dec 2018 07:59:17
Emery has done a fine job so far, bringing in 5 players during the summer, which is about the maximum amount that could be safely integrated. We have been unfortunately to lose 2 players out for the season to injury. I would like to see us sign a couple of players in the window; a player to replace Welbeck, who can play up front and in a wide attacking role and a midfield player with an all-round game.
The following players are clearly on borrowed time:
Jenkinson! - utterly useless
Ozil
Iwobi - still poor despite an upturn in form since Emery's arrival
Ramsey - contract running down
Cech - contract running down
Monreal - contract running down
Elneny - simply not good enough

For me the major weakness for me that needs most attention is that we have too many attacking midfield players that offer so little defensively.


3.) 20 Dec 2018 09:35:19
Dick has a similar job to what Jurgen walked into at Liverpool both inherited poor squads full of obvious weaknesses and defensive problems.
It didn't happen over night at Liverpool and it won't happen over night at Arsenal either, this time last season people were still asking huge questions about Liverpools defence.
Jurgen and Liverpool had some pretty poor results on the way to getting where they are now 3 years after Klopp took over, patience is going with the manager and the club is the only way we stand a chance of getting back to being competitive.
If in 3 years time we still have all the same problems with squad quality then I will be joining those who question the club but if it took Liverpool and Klopp 3 years why should we expect Arsenal and Emery to do pretty much exactly the same job in less than 1 year?
Be realistic and give both the club and management a sensible chance and time scale to show what they can do together.


4.) 20 Dec 2018 15:45:54
Agreed, I think we've just gotten used to winning again, so fans are overreacting to the two losses on the trot.

Ideally we would have rotated yesterday, but that was a man's game and a NLD so we couldn't play the kids.

Although we lost, we now match them physically (which wasn't the case the last two seasons) and we need more time for Emery to get the players he wants.

We're tired and beat up, but we need to push to January and get a couple players to reinforce and refresh the squad.

We're on the right track boys.

COYG.


5.) 20 Dec 2018 18:58:04
Absolutely bang on the money g62. Results and seasons were poor, so most fans begged for a change. We've nkw got it. and while it has started better than we thought, it's not perfection. let's face it, things take time and I guarantee most fans of asked at the beginning of season if they'd be happy with where we are at this moment, majority would
Have said yes. New manager, new tactics, majority of inherited squad, but showing a fighting spirit that was lacking in past seasons. Rome wasn't built in a day, the excitement is surely in the curiosity of what lies ahead.


6.) 20 Dec 2018 19:20:09
So far the Dick Arsenal combo have brought in Torreira Guendouzi Leno Papa and Litch, Torreira and Guendouzi have both been brilliant signings so far and both look absolute bargains while Papa and Leno both look like good buys and Litch has proved a useful addition to the squad especially when covering injuries.
We can't sign Ronaldo Messi or Mbappe type names in order to fast track ourselves into the title race so we are going to need to be patient and buy well and if the 5 signings so far and the difference they have made are anything to go buy then we should be very excited about what we will look like if we add another 5 to them over the next two windows.

I don't know why our fans think the arsenal job is a hot property. All the big coaches who have been linked with us, have either taken other job offers, extended their contracts or chosen to remain at their club.

We arsenal fans should be grateful to Arteta, as he is willing to take a job when everything is against him. It is a poisoned chalice, no coach wants to take it and the major reason being the board has no ambition. They are not willing to spend, hence why no top manager is interested.

It is not about history or stuff like that, it is purely down to money. You think man city got Guardiola because they have history? No. They got him because they showed him they have ambition. We could have gotten Allegri or any other top coach if we showed ambition.

I think we arsenal fans need to appreciate Arteta and cut him some slack. He took a pay cut to join us as a player and is willing to take up the job even though it is a poisoned chalice. I admire his courage. If i was in his shoes i wouldn't have taken that job because there is a bigger chance i would fail due to an unambitious owner. His career could end before it even gets started. He really has his back against the wall and i hope he succeeds for his sake and our sakes.

We are down to arteta because there is no one else, plain and simple. Every top coach is out of the running. Nobody wants us and that is not Arteta's fault. It is the fault of the board and the owner. I think the fans should be mad at them instead.

Punani - I have nothing against Arteta and will support him if given the role but I have reservations:

1. We have a big defensive and mentality rebuild project
2. Arteta has limited experience as a manager but talks a good game about management but a lot about attacking play rather than defence
3. Limited experience handling players like Ozil, PEA, Rambo etc
4. Limited success as a player at an international level or club level. Combined with Management experience is not a great mix
5. Limited pool of managers due to budget and set up - have we limited ourselves to Arteta by our ambition and fears of another monopoly of power situation. Well a full dilution doesn’t work either
6. Will Arteta stand up to the board and what back room staff will he bring to help him or does that need to bed in also.

{Ed025's Note - all good points SY, its a massive job for a rookie to take on and i can see it all ending in tears myself...but who knows mate..


2.) 16 May 2018 07:49:04
If Arteta gets the job and it all starts going horrible wrong, I’d expect a horrific atmosphere at the emerites and potentially a lot worse than the last few seasons have been. Fans were torn before 50/ 50, some over looking poor results, instead respecting Wengers legacy and the hardship he put into transforming this club. This time round it will all be united aimed a one person. Kronke.


3.) 16 May 2018 08:34:52
IF and it's Still a big if Artetta gets the job then my concern is he trys to get current Arsenal players to play Pep style football.
Lots of top footballers struggle as managers with lower league teams simply because they try to get them to do stuff like premier league players forgetting if they were capable of that they would actually be premier league players.
It's no good trying to paint fine lines needed for a masterpiece of art with a 3 inch paint brush you've got to adapt your picture according to the materials you have available.


4.) 16 May 2018 08:51:34
Another point that should be mentioned. Why would Arteta want to leave the best team in the league working under arguably the best manager in the world (because of money) ? If he does take the job then fair play to him! He's risking his limelight that Pep keeps giving him to go out on manage the club that he loved to play for! I must stress that it wasn't my first choice by a long shot but there must be something there. I hope!


5.) 16 May 2018 13:42:47
The only reason why arsenal are going for arteta is because the other managers have rejected them or are not available. It has nothing to do with the bullshit gazidis said about making a 'bold' choice. A bold choice is a nagelsmann or a tedesco not an arteta.

I feel sorry for arteta. The fans are against his appointment and the board won't back him. Regardless of who comes in, that arsenal team has a long list of players who are not good enough.
1.Cech-past it
2.Bellerin-technically deficient (can't cross can't defend a speed merchant)
3. Mustafi-shocking defender. How many times have you seen him fall on his arse?
4.Koscienly-literally his Achilles has become his Achilles heel
5.Xhaka-poor tackler, slow and lacks concentration
6.Ramsey-technically not good enough
7.Iwobi-They say okocha is his uncle. Seems he didn't inherit the good genes.
8.Welbeck-shocking player. How he makes into the first team i don't know.

That is 8 players who should be shipped out so we need like a whole new team. That lot we have won't even get us into the top four. Regardless of who comes in, arsenal's perennial issues will never be addressed. The biggest issue being an owner who has zero ambition.

I feel arteta can do a decent job if the fans get behind him but i am afraid regardless of who comes in, we will never win something big unless the owner spends, something i don't think will happen. We need to start a campaign to get kroenke out.


6.) 16 May 2018 14:36:23
BS! Manager at arsenal is probably the biggest job on the market. Stable finances. Solid structure. Good (under performing) team. Good backroom staff. Getting Allegri or Ancelotti is not guaranteed any success, and the board probably know it. It might be throwing money out the window and messing up a good system.

BTW, Guardiola took over Barcelona when he was 37 years after managing the Barcelona B team. Pochettino was 37 when he took over Espanyol, no experience. The fact is that we don't know much about Arteta and the type of manager he will be. The fact that Guardiola hand picked him as his assistant is a sign of quality, he is usually a picky guy.

backup information on economy!

7.) 16 May 2018 15:47:37
Norgunner, the arsenal job is not as big as you think it is. Here is what we know so far. Look at all the managers we were linked with and what happened with them.
1.Allegri-opted to stay at juventus. They say he had issues with the transfer budget. out of the running as of now
2.Enrique (Don't rate him highly) -had issues with salary and transfer budget. out of the running as of now.
3.Tuchel-Went to PSG.
4.Nagelsmann-Arsenal were interested. He opted to stay in hoffenheim.
5.joachim lowe-extended his contract with the german national team

I may be missing a couple more but, when wenger stepped down, the candidates were suppossedly many but almost any top manager that we we linked with; has opted to either stay, take other job offers or not even take our job even though they were unemployed.

Forget about top tier coaches, second tier coaches like nagelsmann have rejected us, what does that say about the arsenal job? face it nobody wants it and it has everything to do with the board and the owner. They don't want to spend.


 

 

14 May 2018 20:39:09
How far have we fallen that no top manager is interested in us?
Allegri-not interested
Tuchel- was not interested and went to psg.
Nagelsmann-not interested
enrique-deemed our salary low

From the so called list we drew up, it seems most of the top coaches are not interested in us. we are down to arteta and viera.

punani gooner

1.) 14 May 2018 21:07:18
I wouldn't panic just yet punani. Only tuchel out of your list is definitely not interested. Most of the "info" about the others at the moment can't be trusted.


2.) 14 May 2018 21:16:37
Of that list I can understand allgeri wants to stay loyal to a club he has won multiple titles with. Tutchel i'm not sure what he had done to be classed a top manager. What do others thing. Nagelsmann not a top manager yet. Hope we get him but haven't seen him rule himself out. And Enrique like tutchel I don't see the fuss about him especially with the stupid salary he wants.


3.) 14 May 2018 21:22:26
It’s not like that punani. Someone has to fit the profile and want the job. It won’t be Vieira or Arteta I’m sure of it.


4.) 14 May 2018 23:35:31
Allegri said he was staying at juve. He did an interview after the roma game and said he was staying. so definitely not interested.

The reliable german journo, honigstein came out and said that tuchel was interested in the arsenal job last season. He was contacted this season too after he got into talks with PSG. rebuffed the arsenal offer (IMO the perfect coach for arsenal at this point in time)

About nagelsmann, i believe he is not interested because he already rejected bayern. Why would he reject bayern and choose arsenal? There is also an AST (arsenal supporters trust member) who is fairly reliable when it comes to Arsenal rumours who said that arsenal made an enquiry regarding nagelsmann and it was rebuffed. They were not even given a response. That is a bit insulting

DG, tuchel is a top top manager. Tactically very good. incredible coach. His only issue is how he relates to the board and stuff but on the pitch Thomas is a genius. off the pitch is where he has an issue. Nagelsmann is in the same mould too. What is interesting is it is tuchel who got nagelsmann into management. When tuchel was at augsburg i believe, it was nagelsmann who used to do opposition research for him. Tucehl and nagelsmann are similar. The tiny difference i have noted is that nagelsmann especially this season has his teams playing lot of long balls so i guess that makes him a bit unpredictable especially against the big teams. He is not shy to try the odd long ball.

Years ago guardiola and klopp were interested in us but we lost both chances. In my opinion i think arsenal made the wrong choice in not going all out for guardiola, a one in a generation kind of coach. Everywhere he has gone he may not have won every time but he has left a tactical footprint. Till now the guardiola effect is being felt in germany, easily the best coach of his generation. He was the coach to establish arsenal as a global force but he is gone now. He might have won the champions league or set us on the path to winning it but that is all gone now.

Shows how far we have fallen that second tier coaches like nagelsmann won't even respond to our inquiries.


 

 

14 May 2018 11:44:09
Deep down i had a feeling that allegri would not come to arsenal. I had that feeling because we have an owner with zero ambition. That has been our biggest problem. It just didn't come to light because wenger is not the kind of guy not to moan about lacking funds. He is a gentleman in that respect. He keeps things in-house.

Kroenke once did an interview i think was on the standard newspaper, it did seem incoherent to me but what i could get from that interview was that he thinks spending is not the way to go. He even went further and said he admires what.

punani gooner

1.) 14 May 2018 13:27:41
He is happy with managing the biggest club in Italian football, a team in the CL who have reached the final and semifinal fairly often in recent years. Probably worth noting that he's not going to Chelsea either, which has the definition of an invested owner.


2.) 14 May 2018 15:29:16
kroenke does not want to invest and the team needs serious investment. six to seven new players minimum that is the only way we can compete regardless of who the next manager is even though it would help if we hired someone who is ahead of his time.

i can only see us falling further and further behind. Wenger was just the symptom of a larger problem. We have addressed the symptom but not the disease;the disease being an unambitious owner and a totally incompetent board.


3.) 14 May 2018 19:16:20
This could be the most over the top reaction to someone not wanting to join us.


4.) 14 May 2018 20:49:55
I agree. If it’s true and Allegri is out of the running, it’s no coincidence big name managers with a reputation to withhold like Allergi and Enrique are No longer front runners; its because of the board upstairs and their lack of ambition and no doubt budget disagreements. Arteta and co maybe great coaches but even Pep spends 200 mil a season.


5.) 15 May 2018 02:42:27
Kroenke sanctioned a ton of spending on players in the past few seasons. We just spent 50m on a 29y/ o striker in January, not to mention picking up Xhaka and Mustafi for huge fees, Lacazette, etc.

I have a lot of issues with Kroenke's management but sanctioning spending is not one of them, not when you compare it to things like pushing contract renewals and how we actually conduct the business of transfers in and out.

24 Jun 2021 22:18:37
Hope the Eds here and all the posters are having a good summer.

The reliable David Ornstein reported that arsenal are close to finalizing a deal for Ben white. In my opinion, this is a ridiculous transfer and shows incompetence in our recruitment.

firstly, Ben white is not even worth that price and that is my fundamental issue with this transfer. He is excellent at playing out from the back but is suspect in the air due to his height. He is 6 feet I believe which would pose problems when defending set pieces.

secondly. We have other areas where we have bigger problems, mainly the midfield. Our midfield is dire and our attack nearly impotent. do we need to splash such amount of money on a defender where there are other glaring weaknesses in our team?

Thirdly, the emergence of saliba. Upto now, I have never fully understood why Arteta has never given a chance to saliba. What is going on between Arteta and saliba? with the club having spent 30 millions euros on saliba, i can't believe Arteta won't give him a chance. He might not like him but the club shelled out a lot of money to sign him. Does Arteta struggle with basic economics? He seems to keep undervaluing the club's assets. He has done the same to guendouzi .

punani gooner

1.) 25 Jun 2021 00:16:38
Good points. I’d love to know what the problem is with WS. £27 million and he’s not even had a sniff.


2.) 25 Jun 2021 06:58:15
William Saliba seems like another Guenduzi. Every news that comes out from his side has been negative about Arsenal. He seems very close to Guenduzi and was seen to mock Arsenal on social media. It's better he leaves if he doesn't want to be here. He's the best talent out there, but if he feels he's too good for the club, it's better to let him go.


3.) 25 Jun 2021 10:05:50
Guendouzi is a quality player and will only get better. What I've seen of Saliba suggests the same. Of course they're going to be arsey about the club that just shifts them out for whatever reason. We need a bit of spite in this team and what Guendouzi did against Brighton wasn't even that bad. Compare it to Keown against Van Nistelroy. Vieira against everyone. its weird how we say we need aggressive players but then a young capable kid shows aggression, we ship him out. One of Arsenals biggest mistakes will be getting rid of MG.


4.) 25 Jun 2021 10:21:44
Can`t disagree more with you Punani! Guendouzi is disruptive and not as good as he thinks he is yet we bought for £7 million and looks like he could be going for £17 million! Poor economics? Ridiculous and incompetent for buying an England international who is highly rated! May I point out we had Rob Holding for most of the season who is nowhere near the England squad! The window isn`t shut so we could buy one or two midfielders and some on here wanting Willock to have his chance. Saliba isn`t fancied for some reason, and I for one want him to be given at least a chance. MA didn`t buy him but who knows if he is that good we could at least get the money back! I don`t think we should assume the worst when actually none of it actually happened COYG.


5.) 25 Jun 2021 10:34:40
Are people saying we need aggressive players? Leaders yes aggressive no. Guendouzi can go - ego bigger than talent - agree though Saliba needs a chance COYG.


6.) 25 Jun 2021 10:35:01
You seriously value a CB on height alone? Never heard anything so ridiculous

Carles Puyol (5ft10) One of Spain's best ever. .
Fabio Cannavaro (5ft9) Just another player on the coveted list of legendary Italian central defenders. .
Franco Baresi (5ft9) .
Ronald Koeman (5ft11) .
Franz Beckenbauer (5ft11) .
Frank de Boer (5ft11) .
Ivan Cordoba (5ft8) .
Bobby Moore (5ft10)

I’ll stop there!
Do you honestly believe that MA is running the finances when it comes to players transfer fees? There are a huge team of people at a EPL club which deal with these things and all of these financial decisions are way beyond us mere fans understanding and should be left to the experts.
The value of a player is only as much as the buying club are willing to pay and the selling club are willing to accept, it certainly isn’t calculated on their height or Peter crouch would be worth £200m 🤣🤣.

I am not sure why everyone is up in arms about us losing buendia to villa.

I actually think he was a bit over-priced. We did not miss out on prime messi. He is a championship player, let us remember that. The club could have other targets. Let's us see what happens till the end of the transfer window. in my opinion it is a make or break window for arsenal. show ambition and we could be back to the champions league due to our light schedule.

2.) 06 Jun 2021 12:17:12
Agree Punani 👍.


3.) 06 Jun 2021 12:20:36
Plus we just don’t need that type of player, we already have options, and players like Martinelli are already being held back and not playing, something that would get worse if Buendia were to join. I would much prefer we spent the bulk of any transfer budget available on the best CM we could afford, a guaranteed first XI starter rather than a ‘squad player’ and who has been picked specifically to compliment Partey as our main central midfield.


4.) 06 Jun 2021 13:43:05
I don't remember anyone demanding we singed him last summer after watching him in the premier league all that season, obviously he's had a very good season in the championship since then and now we will see if he can maintain that standard in the premier league

I wish the lad all the best in the premier league and hope he can shiw everyone how much he's improved since last playing at that level.


5.) 06 Jun 2021 14:57:01
My issue is - we were told Edu knows our targets, spoken to targets and we will move swiftly.

Emi was apparently one of those targets but we managed to screw it up even though the player wanted to sign and one of our main targets. Sounds like we were 3m short.

Surely our main target is worth an additional 3m! I just want us to be decisive and ruthless. It’s not that it’s Emi but that we couldn’t compete with Villa in a window that’s so important to us and we were going to be ruthless.

Toothless and clueless more like.


6.) 06 Jun 2021 20:23:15
SY4 mate, i heard one of the reasons why Edu was made the technical director was so that we can get a footing in the South American market. Why hasn't that happened?


7.) 06 Jun 2021 21:07:02
PG - I’m as convinced by Edu as I am Mikel. How about you?


8.) 06 Jun 2021 23:41:42
I am less convinced by Edu compared to Arteta. Both are not good enough in my opinion but feel like Edu has performed worse in his position relative to the one of Arteta.

I mean where are the Brazilian wonder kids we were promised? Edu has shown zero promise as a technical director. He has committed a litany of errors and at any responsible club, he would have been sacked a long time ago. But we are not a responsible club are we?


 

 

02 Jun 2021 22:33:35
if spurs get Conte, surely we should be scared of being in their shadows Conte won't join until they guarantee him some level of spending.

Conte with some bit of money is probably a title win. Now that is a scary thought.

You know i thought about it. With time even Spurs will surpass us, Chelsea have already surpassed us and there is no debate about that. Spurs could do the same with Conte at the helm. He might not stay at Spurs for long, but he might lay the foundations for them becoming a big team by winning a trophy.

We are in for a long period of pain and suffering so long as kroenke is in charge. Worst owner a club can have. The guilty never speak. That is why kroenke never engages the fans. He knows he is guilty. He cannot face the supporters because everything he does at the club is unjustifiable. I hope he sells or we will keep falling behind.

The man came to our club while we were competing for the title. We had freaking Thierry henry at the club, probably the best striker in the world in his prime and dennis bergkamph, one of the most technically gifted players I have ever seen. Now whom do we have at the club? aubameyang? Is he even fit to lace henry's boots?

What stan has done to our club is unforgivable.

Hi oxforshire mate. my concern is that our rivals have gotten better i.e Chelsea or are trying to better in the case of spurs.

My concern is that we are being left behind. Of the top six clubs, I believe we have the worst set of owners.

Conte at spurs would be a worry because of his history. Five league titles in seven years is not a record to be taken lightly and we know Conte as a coach, we know what he would demand. He has this relentless desire to win and he usually delivers. That is my worry.


4.) 03 Jun 2021 21:02:17

Chelsea winning tow champions league titles while we won zero was an inconceivable thought 17 years ago but wow! How the tables have turned.

Proves to you what investing does for a team. Roman wants to win. Stan wants to make money. That is the difference and cruelly for us; the difference is constant joy and jubilation for Chelsea supporters and endless pain for us.

Hurts to see teams like Chelsea winning important titles while we are not even in the conversation.

Chelsea have 7 European trophies, we are a long way behind The Blues.

Good to see John Terry back in a Chelsea shirt during the team photos with the trophy.

Or competition

Money, ambition and ruthless.

SY4 mate, I have given up any hopes of us winning any meaningful trophy with kroenke at the helm. The man has zero ambition.

Chelsea and Arsenal are so far apart, it is sickening. When we went on that horrible long run, tuchel became available. I was baffled as to why Arteta wasn't sacked then. There was a world class coach available and we don't go for him. Instead, we stuck with a novice who got knocked out in Europe by an inferior Villareal side and who delivered an 8th place finish. Chelsea got a proven coach and he delivered the biggest prize of all. Roman is just ruthless. You either deliver for him or you are out. impressive, just impressive.

Arteta cost us this tie in the first leg with his poor lineup and failure to sense danger with regards to the ceballos red card.

He has to be sacked. For many years on this forum, I have always been banging on about tuchel and nagelsmann and why arsenal should have gone for any. We can all see now that Thomas is truly a special coach with the work he is doing at Chelsea and nagelsmann has already being snapped up by Bayern. That is testament to the quality of their coaching, something arteta severely lacks.

Kroneke out! Arteta out!

Fair play Punani you have indeed been flying the flag for Tuchel and Nagelesmann for years now mate.

Credit where it's due.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Arteta be a decent coach in 5-10 years, he has to learn on the job. Unfortunately for him and us, this is such a high pressure job and he isn't up to the task yet. The club has jumped on the bandwagon of hiring club legends (club favourite in Arteta's case) hoping that it will work out.

Something which is even more unfortunate is that if Arteta is sacked, the next man to have the job will probably suffer the same fate, Edu is out of his depth, the club is being ran wrong and I believe we were turned down by a few others before settling for Edu if my memory serves me right.

We are rotten to the core, the club has no life left and it needs a hard reset. Starting with the owners, and cascading down from there.

D16.i have noticed that too, it is so worrying to have our deals being driven by agents. if Edu and raul can only do recruitment only through agents, they should both be fired.

It is not a rumuor gunner. The very reliable honigstein and ornstein are reporting it. It is happening, sven is leaving.

The implications are horifying. How will Arsenal get back to the top when we let go off the best scout in the world and have no money to spend?

I am afraid we will go downhill from here unless we find an equally capable replacement.

Gunner ornstein is reporting it too and i am afraid it is happening.

Of all the guys who gazidis employed before he left, it is sven i have been most impressed with. Apparently there is is power struggle between raul and sven. If i was Arsenal, i would pick sven. This man has contacts even as far as japan, has strong connections in the german and french markets which produce many talents, why lose him when we don't have much cash and we don't want to migrate from our self sustaining policy? Why?

It is chaotic at arsenal and i am really unhappy with the direction sanllehi is taking arsenal.

SinGooner will get behind the team. I am a fan first of all. I hope Emery proves me wrong. I'll be over the moon if we won the league or the champions league in the next 2-3 years. It is just that i have my doubts is all but for sure i'll get behind the team and support the boys.

Sy4 mate, I have always said that Edu is a horrible technical director. When everyone was raving about the partey deal, I was asking what special thing Edu did. What was impressive about waiting for a team to lower their asking price and then triggering the release clause on deadline day anyway?

Ridiculous spending 50 million pounds on Ben white. He is not even worth that money.

I am less convinced by Edu compared to Arteta. Both are not good enough in my opinion but feel like Edu has performed worse in his position relative to the one of Arteta.

I mean where are the Brazilian wonder kids we were promised? Edu has shown zero promise as a technical director. He has committed a litany of errors and at any responsible club, he would have been sacked a long time ago. But we are not a responsible club are we?

SY4 mate, i heard one of the reasons why Edu was made the technical director was so that we can get a footing in the South American market. Why hasn't that happened?

Relieved to hear that. Conte is a winner. Guess that isn't part of Spurs DNA, i mean winning.
