No sign of progress btw.
I think he's absolutely right. We have not looked anywhere near good enough to compete with the other top teams in the last 5 years. I reckon if we got to the final we would have been beaten by Man Utd. Some of the players technically and mentally are just not good enough. Willock and Guendouzi are not ready to anchor the midfield for a full season. Willock loses the ball too much to play in our midfield at this moment. Guendouzi has attitude problems and Saliba is still only 19 and still has loads of time to learn.
So he wasted a season playing bums? I can’t stand this man at all.
No time to waste? You sent Saliba and Guendouzi out on loan. You were forced into playing ESR, you hate Martinelli. You prefer Elneny to Willock. You killed Nelson for Willian.
All these lads could have been tested in this woeful season, no time to waste? **** off.
And we haven't been able to balance defense and attack for years even during the Wenger era. Our midfield has not looked balanced at all for far too long. I think Arteta and Edu know what we need and will rectify that this summer.It's worked well with Silva since Tuchel took over but stick him in our team and he'd look just as finished as he did under Lampard. The only time we've looked stable defensively under Arteta was playing a back 3 and a low block which consequently left us lacking any attacking threat other than counters. Since moving to the back 4 we've shown that we can't balance attack and defence at all.
Wenger has been gone for 3 years now, I really don't see why he keeps getting brought up. I admire your optimism but I see no reason to trust Arteta or Edu to rectify anything. They've put together this side through signings and contacts and we've seen the worst season I've ever witnessed both in results and performances but here we are, nothing I can do about it apart from moan.And we haven't been able to balance defense and attack for years even during the Wenger era.

Here's the problem though. What if Arteta gets what he needs and still chop, change and try experiments?And we haven't been able to balance defense and attack for years even during the Wenger era.

This POS sucked up to Wenger when he was past his prime and only at the club because Wenger has class. Jose or Pep would have got rid of him in 2014. Classless little manGet this ****ing piece of **** out this club. Trying to blame Wenger in this mess is disgraceful and disrespectful.
Attempting to throw previous managers and players under the bus is the work of a self obsessed, spineless ****.
Regardless of how poor things got under Wenger and Emery they acted with class and respect.
So you’re telling me in a club that’s been rotting for 5 years, you’ve still managed to stick out like a sore thumb with some of the worst results in the clubs history. Not even managed to steady the ship even a tiny bit you’ve contributed to making things worse.
We are so much better tactically and defensively. We have seen the likes of ESR and Saka emerge as REAL talents from the youth ranks. We have kept our squad fit for most of the season (WHEN LAST HAS THAT HAPPENED). Xhaka has improved big time under Arteta, playing in a role which suits him tactically. Leno looks much better this season as a sweeper keeper and has improved his distribution and with the ball at his feet.
Actually believe and kind of feel for Arteta when he talks about putting everything he has into trying to sort us out. He clearly takes it very seriously and honestly looks noticeably older already from when he took over. It's not a lack effort or dedication from him. It's that he is in over his head and should have started managing in a job with a far lower profile and a lot less complexity than Arsenal at this point.
At the same time, it's hard not to think he should have had the self-awareness to realise he wasn't ready for this. I get being confident in yourself but it seems arrogant from him in hindsight to think he could just start his managerial career by taking over at Arsenal. So much talk of him being the next thing I guess. Fooled everyone that he was ready without ever having cut his teeth in this kind of job. I remember feeling like we needed to hire him so as not to miss out. But it seems like it fooled him as well. At some point you gotta have a reality check with yourself before this kind of thing.
