Here's a hypothetical, let's say Arteta gets sacked around Christmas time.

A couple of years down the line when the frustration from fans has died down towards him what do you think his legacy at Arsenal will be... The player and captain who did a really good job for us or the manager who failed the test here, albeit with an FA Cup to his name?

I hope it's more the former, I really liked Arteta as a player.
I remember him for the west brom game as a player so make of that what you will

Liked him as a player, was quite underrated. Helped steady the ship during a rough period for the club.

Won a trophy as Arsenal manager, and banter aside, the likes of Lampard and Ole can't say the same.

That being said it can't be overlooked that's he's come 8th twice, bottled Europe twice and so far has been a disaster in the market, which I think is what he will be remembered for.

I’m sorry and I’m not a hater, but this is really basic. I like Saliba and Guendouzi like everyone else but you man are starving if this gets you excited.

Holding and Elneny probably aren't capable of executing this which is the entire point

He was a good player for us, but the mistakes he is making as a manager will rightly have him remembered in a negative way.

In regards to that Guendouzi and Saliba clip, most of our players would look like that in ligue 1 it's kinda why we get tricked into signing them in the first place.

Anyway, more on topic I'm starting to think Arteta made a mistake in taking the Arsenal job. Yeah we're a big, big club and very few managers get a chance to manage a club of such stature as a novice. It was a very hard job to turn down given Arteta's standing as a manager.

Parking aside whether Arteta has the potential to be a good manager in the future. I think it's imperative that if you have a novice manager the structure and hierarchy upstairs at the club needs to be strong and settled to help the rookie out.

He's obviously struggling at his core job of getting results which is bad enough but I also get the feeling he's feeling the need to get himself involved in stuff that should not really be under his remit as a novice manager. I don't think that's helping matters either.

Yeah, promoting him to manager was a mistake and one a rookie DoF would make to have someone to hide behind.

As a manager? If he doesn't kick on on the next jobs he has, he will be a di Matteo.

If he ends up being successful, maybe people will look at his internship here a bit more fondly, maybe even look back and say it was too early for him etc.
