It's probably a combination of ass-kissing along with being genuinely impressed by his tactical insights and stuff like that, but it's not surprising I don't think any would argue about his knowledge of football in a tactical sense, I think it's other areas of his management which people question which is fair enough given our position. Even going back to his City days everyone knew about the input Arteta has and his knowledge, why else would someone like Pep hire him when he could have such a choice of assistant managers.

In general, one mans genius is another’s mad man. I don’t buy too much into this stuff until they can back it up with something - managers with a track record. Even then it’s questionable, nobody will call Low, Zidane etc a genius. On the pitch, even Mourinho you don’t class as genius, though his ability to drill something into Inter and Porto is some sort of genius.

It’s like your mate who smokes a little and starts talking about crypto or something, but he’s been broke for the last 15 years.

Tierney, Smith Rowe, Xhaka and I'm forgetting like 2 people here have already called him a genius or similiar. Specifically mentioning that Arteta usually knows how games play out and its down to execution why the gameplan fails more often than not.

In that regard they are consistent with the praise.
Arteta clearly is leaving players and other coaches with the impression that he knows what he is doing tactically and player instruction wise. Didn't Sterling say he had learned a lot from Arteta? Anyhow, think this is a huge plus for Arteta and why I for one, although it is early and sitting on the fence partly makes sense, think we should give him ample time to come good. It has only been a little more than a year now since he joined. We need to give it at least 2 more years unless things really go tits up in the league.

Tierney did.


"The manager's a genius. A football genius"

Dunno why I immediately thought of Jez...

Smith Rowe papered over cracks and spared Arteta’s blushes a few times but the bottom line is the manager isn’t good enough to be leading a big football club with aspirations like Arsenal.

He’s made you a laughing stock.

:lol: What aspirations? Europa is our level right now and has been for a couple of seasons.

Top 4. Arsenal aren’t interested in the big trophies and haven’t been for a decade or more. But your owners will definitely demand a CL finish in next few seasons and Arsenal are nowhere near it.

This is genuinely pathetic. Get this man to absolute **** and get a real manager. He commands absolutely no respect from anyone. The fact Auba gets dropped for ‘discipline’ then brought back in to do a no-show performance like this shows you exactly how much of a dweeb he is.

Our owners don't even realize they own a footy team across the pond more often than not.

He's improved our defence, am I right?
Soon as we started attacking better it feels we are conceding more, definitely gifting more goals like the 2nd one tonight. Arteta can't get his chi balanced this seasin; inconsistency in results and imbalance between defensive and attacking performances
