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.

Arteta extended Holding, Arteta extended Luiz and Cebellos, Arteta sighed Mari because of his City connection.

15/16 players of this current squad are here because of Arteta is the point.
How many starters tonight were brought to the club by Arteta? 2

Probably not the best point because 23 played well. But Arteta hasn't signed many starting players. The starters he has signed have been decent.

Against lesser sides at least we should be having runners on both LW and RW. Mikel got out of his own way with this one (SHU), not playing Willian or Auba on LW.

I do agree that from kick off the energy showed was inconsistent with any significant loss of the dressing room. The only question is the Mikel - Auba relationship, and it is still a key one because we are more likely to find buyers for Laca than Auba this summer. I do think Auba has merited some tougher treatment after kid gloves for so long this season did not really work, but he can really kick up a stink if he wants to, and I hope he doesn’t.

Having said that, we still would've won without Saka, I feel.

Having runners ahead of Lacazette and him closer to the penalty box seems as obvious as having technical players around Aubameyang.

Some answers have been starring Mikel in the face and he just seems too stubborn to listen and he needs to improve this aspect of his management.

He can't be bailed out by having the best squad in the league like City and Pep do.

6 of that line up was extended or signed by Arteta. Extension makes that his players.
Extensions mean little as its more expensive to sign a player than it is to keep a player.

This is why I support Arteta. The out and out players (Gabriel and Partey) have been good. Willian was a free transfer punt. I trust him when it comes to big outlay which is a change from wasteful outlay over the years.
