It’s not as simple as just sacking him because you then have to look at Edu, then Vinai and Josh too because nothing they have tried is working.

Sacking him raises so many other questions and pressure for themselves that they will drag this on for as long as they can. They give him till Christmas even if things are bad.

Ceballos 1180min
Willock 235min

He rather play Real player, who adds nothing and costs us goals than hale end player. I am happy that Willock was loaned to Newcastle. He is proving Arteta wrong.

Overall Arteta is killing our youth. That answer about why Martinelli is not playing, added all the dots. I am sure that ESR caught lucky break. That was more circumstances and Arteta's hand was forced.

Add to this f*ck results and we get double edge sword. All the people talking about long term project should shut up when in reality we see different view.

That's true.

Plus in my books Edu might actually be the bigger problem, if Arteta leaves his Kia kissing arse needs to exit too.

Been saying this all season. Even El Nehy, why play a guy who can’t pass when you can use Guendouzi?

Why is Saliba not playing when our other CB’s are making mistakes every week? We’ve been 12th all season, these older heads are not doing us any favours.

Fully understand why people want him out, but in reality it's not going to happen, he's going to get another season no matter what. Imagine we end the season poorly, bottom half finish and get knocked out of the Europa, how does the board spin things and justify the direction the club is going in? They usually come up with something, but it will be tough for them this time.

The only thing that would appease the fans is a massive summer window (like 100m net spend), but that is just not going to happen. With fans back in the stadium next season things or going to get very messy.

Right now, the board are clutching at their beads and praying that he wins us the Europa League, and for all our sakes, for the sake of this club, The Arsenal, I hope and pray that he does it. That he, we, may end this season with a European trophy, because other than that and I can't be sure where this club will can next season.

When Arteta came in, I assumed the goal was to get stability and get European football. He did that. This season was unfortunate because of covid but it does seem that a long term playing philosophy was the priority. Arteta has stuck to his guns eg playing out from the back and we fans can clearly see the players and types of player who aren't good enough. It's a brave (or stupid) tactic that will only work if he's backed in the transfer market properly and the youth are given a fair crack. We have players here unfit for Wenger's worst sides so keeping them isn't an option. Trying to make them work will see us in the same or worse position next season. If I'm correct, we have the right idea but it will fail if poorly supported by rubbish transfers. The DoF has a massive job. Get the playing personnel right and if performances and results are not better by Christmas, then Arteta should be sacked.

If he does not win the EL, he should be sacked. I would not waste money recruiting for him. I have seen nothing from him that would instill faith in his character or skills, or intellectual maturity. To me he is unfit to manage this club.

David Moyes and Mikel Arteta started in the same month. David Moyes has taken West Ham forward and got them organised.
Mikel Arteta has taken Arsenal backwards and I still don’t understand what he's trying to do. But never mind, trust the process.
The job at Arsenal was much harder. Apparently West Ham has better squad and it was easier job logic Arteta fans

But but but but but......but Chelsea spent 300 million!

Arteta with Ole's squad would win the title. He's like Pep, he needs his players.

He's Spanish!!!!

We are 11th. I’m actually surprised he’s still managing. I think he’s lucky there are no fans in the stadium, surely they would have turned on him.
He will get a free pass from the board for this season sadly. Even if we go out against Slavia this will not change a thing for Kroenke, Edu & Vinai.

Think if their will be fans next season and he will start bad into the next saison again, he will be gone very fast. Especially with no international football for us next season, we can just concentrate on the PL and there will be no excuses for Arteta anymore.

Do you really believe that there is no chance Arteta will do well next season?

The team was finishing 4-6th under those 2 managers. It’s an insult to them to include Arteta as the 3rd manager.

This squad isn’t top 4 quality, Arsène and Emery managed to make the squad play to about their level. Arteta (and Emery once he lost the dressing room) are the ones having us on course for 10th.
Its not really. And I hope you can figure out why
Most of the squad and team is now an Arteta/Edu recruited through transfers, extensions and loans. Why are we 10th all season? It’s not because of Auba who Wenger left behind. Or Laca, a squaddy, probably the best squad striker in the league.
You’re accurate when you say the club has wasted money, record amounts have been wasted since Wenger left, 300-400M.
I'm not sure that's the case.

Weve spent a **** load and it's been wasted. Our recruitment has been shambolic for as long as I care to remember.

Us falling out of CL gave resources to competitors who never had it before and unlike us they used it to their advantage. And even then they've come up against PL money which has been a great leveller and enabled us to have a CL wage without CL competition.

One follows the other. It sounds like tacit acceptance of @Makingtrax but its not. Like you said we spent 300 to 400m since Wenger left and we've got worse :/ we've hired bad staff a worse manager and worse players.
