Mikel Arteta: Managerial Royalty

Everytime we go through a bad spell, they serve us this culture crap.

I have never seen any other manager getting away with his mediocre job with the culture crap. It's simply amazing. :lol:
There going to be working pretty hard under teta. We are so manic bipolar within a single season, it's the best analogy I can up with. How many times do we start playing football that makes you think it's clicked and we are world beaters than within a couple of weeks you think we will never score another goal again. Some might say it's because we are a young side but think it might be more to it than that.

‘The Arsenal Way’: club conducting top-to-bottom cultural review

David Ornstein


It was a disappointing weekend for Arsenal as their chances of making next season’s Champions League hit another setback — the defeat at Southampton was their third consecutive loss.

The downturn has tempered expectations for the final weeks of the campaign and offered a reality check on how much progress is still required if they are to compete for the biggest trophies again.

Manager Mikel Arteta is charged with improving Arsenal’s fortunes on the pitch and there is also a rebuilding job occurring behind the scenes as the north London side try to reclaim former glories.

One of the main problems identified in recent times has been the culture and they are now trying to do something about it. The Athletic understands Arsenal have enlisted the help of consultancy firm People-Made to embark upon what sources call a “top-to-bottom cultural review of the club”.

The project — known internally as “The Arsenal Way” — has already begun and aims to hear from staff at all levels of the organisation, identify what has gone wrong and attempt to put things right.

There is an acceptance that many factors Arsenal feel set them apart started to dissipate towards the end of Arsène Wenger’s reign and during Unai Emery’s period at the helm.

Backed at ownership level, this is being led by director Lord Harris, chief executive Vinai Venkatesham and chief commercial officer Juliet Slot. Arteta, technical director Edu and academy boss Per Mertesacker are involved in what they hope will help bring a successful future.

The process kicked off with a “Be Together” forum at the Emirates Stadium and there are smaller sessions — some of which Arteta has attended — focus groups, individual meetings and a survey.

There are groups named after iconic figures, such as “Rocky”, with new images and messaging noticeable around club buildings designed to connect employees with Arsenal’s history and values.

People-Made’s research phase is happening until the summer, when the London-based company will report its findings and assist Arsenal in establishing a “cultural direction” for the years ahead.

Speechless.

Thanks for the article.
This is just basically another PR bullshit without any substance, abusing trendy buzzwords that don't mean **** like culture, process and so on.

This seriously sounds like the propaganda coming out of any good autocratic state. Probably the thing that the club had progressed most succesffuly under Arteta is the propaganda, I don't remember any thing like this under emery or even Wenger.

This is why I got triggered when Blood on the Tracks, Drippin and others were gushing over the culture stuff. It's cringe.

Imagine looking at the pitch and thinking culture or lateness is the problem, there's like 3 adult players left in the entire club that actually play, 4 if you include Cedric. The imbalance of youth means the culture can be whatever you want it to be.

Why even mention Wenger? This is a disgrace anyways.

It is a cultural problem. What kind of banter club employs a rookie for our biggest rebuild in 20 years and then keeps them employed after our worst performance in 40 years despite our highest spend ever.

2 years ago the Athletic were talking about how Arteta had fixed the culture after our FA Cup win, two years later we're still talking about culture changes.

If you still cannot see past this absolute bullshit then you're beyond saving. Like it's just so blatant now not even the most gullible of Mikrider can be falling for it now.

Literally anytime we go through a bad spell the same BS is being peddled, we used to talk about the Athletic being paid by the club as a joke, I'm absolutely certain it's not a joke anymore. It's like Bartomeu at Barcelona. The club is 100% deliberately getting these clowns to do their dirty work for them. It's pretty revolting stuff

I maybe bought into the culture thing a bit somewhere along the line but if it's just used as an excuse any time we fail going forward that's me gone.

It's also amazing how the goalposts keep shifting. When Arteta was appointed our plan was within 3 years back in the CL and competing with the best, then it got delayed a bit and entire season was scene as a free hit. Now we're in that third season and we're still talking about a cultural change like Arteta was just appointed a couple of months ago and not someone 2 and a half years and hundreds of millions into his reign.

Especially when most of the team has been changed since our "rotten culture" problems according to their PR.
Ramsdale, White, Tomiyasu, Gabriel (who had only a few months of Emery) Partey Cedric are HIS players.
Willian was HIS player.

Pepe only witnessed a few months of Emery.
Saka and Martinelli are youngsters, Saka doesn't seem to have any issues he's among our best performers, and Martinelli just came from Brazil a couple of years ago.

Lacazette Xhaka are the only player left in the squad that were here under Wenger.

Most player that were brought during Emery's spell, Arteta got rid of them: Guendouzi, Torreira, Luiz, Sokratis. Leno is leaving this summer.

So who is left in this squad that was victim of our rotten culture? :lol:
Or even the players Arteta brought have a "culture" issue?

And most importantly, they're trashing the "culture" that made us score 70-80 goals per season, and get CL football most of the time. They're trashing Wenger's legacy just to protect their boy.

Disgusting stuff if you ask me.

Excellent point - how many players or coaches are there left from previous regimes. Shows these journalists are just spouting what the club gives them verbatim, surely you should have a couple of sentences to point out this fairly obvious point.

Club has seriously lost it .

And people wonder why Wenger felt like he had to do basically every job himself. Because these are the people we're left with, obviously Edu wasn't there at the time but it's still the same owners and others behind the scenes which are just utter spoofers and charlatans. It's so hilarious looking back at a time when people thought Wenger was THE problem, when in reality he was literally the only person at the club who had the slightest clue about running a football club.

Might have to call it quits till Arteta f*cks off you know. These constant PR articles coming out of the club honestly puts me in the worst of moods. It’s clear as day Arteta has a PR team behind him pushing this nonsense. Can’t deal with it honestly.

Could also be a sign the club is panicking a bit releasing this nonsense, they know a loss vs Chelsea and another in the next few games and things might actually turn toxic. The fans might even stop singing about how he's the best looking Spaniard and is going to take us to the CL.

Spends more time on PR than on the actual club. Also Ornstein is a sell out. Went from journalism to PR at the Athletic.
