Throwback Thursdays in Kazakhstan for Saul Goodman
How about errors he made 2 or 3 months or 7 months ago is that fair to criticize him, or is Arteta like a born again virgin after every tiny purple patch? I agree with upward trajectory but like you said what would Anxelloti or Tuchel done with the time and money. We could have had both. The opportunity cost of the Arteta project is staggering despite being unknowableI think Arteta was the wrong appointment considering our circumstances at the time. I wanted Ancelotti at the time and I'll stick by that.
He probably should have been sacked twice in his first year and half.
I think we're at the stage now though where we're starting to see some real improvements. Sure we've spent quite a wedge of money but that's necessary if you want to compete with the big boys in this day and age. We've been through a lot of rough with Arteta hopefully now it's time for some smooth.
I understand it but it becomes a bit futile having a dig at him for errors he made 18 months ago, he's a young manager and does seem capable of learning from his mistakes.
What gets me buzzing a bit is the players and fans seem like they are really getting behind Arteta and more importantly the club.
Maybe I'm just being optimistic but it feels like the club is on an upward trajectory for the first time quite a number of years.
I really believe 4th or maybe even 3rd is on the cards this season. I think we'll surprise a few.
Agree with a lot of what you say but we could have had Tuchel or Conte or Ancellotti, now we are basically stuck with his learning curve for good and bad.I think Arteta is alright. He clearly has a plan unlike Emery and despite whatever we think the important players are happy to play under him. Do I see anything special? No but that might not be necessary to get into the CL.
A moron who's hoodwinked the club I wouldn't go that far. The worst I'd say is Arsenal have painted themselves in a corner backing this guy and are at a point where they have to see it through until it's untenable.
I know people think these players are amazing, but the list of coaches that can come in and carry on this project with the existing personnel is an extremely small list now.
