    What a terrible mindset to have.

    We should just accept we're regressing now, because before the period of success we weren't as successful?

    Why are we talking about Wenger, ffs? He's gone. Let's concentrate on our future manager, Donald Mcdonald.

    I’m saying we seem to be reverting back to what we’ve always been. It’s not my mindset, it’s what’s happening in front of our eyes.

    I don't know if the players were aware of what he planned to do (probably not), but many thought at the time that this silly game of 'guess who' wasn't exactly helping the players and was a distraction at the time.

    ****ing hell. We need to appoint someone who is actually good so we can finally move past Wenger.

    If we don’t win the title by 2022, this will be the longest period in Arsenal’s history without retaining the title.

    Sobering thought.

    AM told me Unai was that man because he parked the bus while losing to City,

    Remember @say yes really hyping up that defeat as some tactical masterclass.

    Niko Kovac has the Emery/ Sarri vibes. Can't see him stamping his authority here

    Ok perhaps our interpretation of "few" varies, but Wenger only had his early success off the back of the defence he inherited. In 22 years he signed 1 decent defender, he was fortunate in signing a couple of players who ended up being half decent at the back but were actually bought as midfielders. In any event he is an irrelevance in this aside from the mess he left the squad in.

    Apparently not. One mention that bad decisions have been made since he left and it becomes a war over whether this is all his fault :lol:

    Lauren, Toure, Kos, Per, Campbell, Sagna etc. But Wenger signed one decent defender.

    Sagna made the Premier team of the season, while Lauren, Sol and Toure were invincibles.

    I was saying we are drifting into irrelevancy, I thought you quoted me trying to argue its fine or normal.

    You’ve got your Arsenal back so let’s move on? Why blame him for the mess you have today with a new team, new manager, new regime?

    This after we had CL in our hands last year?

    I think he played a part fwiw, but it's not worth focusing on that now. The more time that passes, the less part he played. It takes nothing away from what he achieved with us. All in all, he did the club a huge favour. You wouldn't crucify a man who did your shopping for 22 years, and then started forgetting the eggs or other bits just before he decided to call it a day.

    Yes, ultimately the board and Kroenke are to blame, they should have been stronger in their decision making.

    Sorry I was referring to central defenders, Toure was signed as a midfielder (as was Lauren) Mertesacker was past it (had the turning circle of a super tanker and pace to match, in a league where pace is key). Personally was never a great fan of Kos but I'll give you him. Sol was the one I was referring too and that was hardly rocket science

    A man you gave 40 quid a week to do your 100 quid weekly shop? Then you got rid off him as soon as he couldn’t get you blood out of a stone? Agree.

    Well our best period post-Wenger was the first 6 months.. the period that was supposed to be the worst because it was still Wenger’s team and they had to ‘unlearn’ everything and get their own system/style in.. The more we were seeing the imprints of the new manager and board on this team the worse we got, which just goes to show what a horrible job they’ve done.

    Wenger didn’t get the best out of the squad so had to go, all we needed though was someone who could do that and then address a few weaknesses. The board doesn’t mess this up badly we would have cl football right now.

    I'm trying to add Allegri back into the poll but I think we may be at the limit for choices.
