Btw is there like an ultra defense league like we had with Wenger and Emery? Who are the members?

How can he if he doesn't know what it is after 18 months?
I don’t know if it’s an ego thing, I just don’t know.

Looking at the Slavia lineup:

Chambers - fair enough, he’s been out fir a long time
Mari - Played well, why not play him again?
Partey - Should have played, he’s missed loads of football and his legs should be fresh
Pepe - should have played for similar reasons to Partey, arguably our in-form player

He’s resting guys who are nowhere near the ‘red-zone’ when their replacements are considerably worse/less in form. Make it make sense!!!

Forcing through.. :lol::lol: Arteta and Arsenal generate ratings - opposing fans and Arsenal's own fans love to pile on and hate the club. Most people tune into AFTV for the hate porn. The Super League needs ratings and excitement. What gets more eyes than a capitulating Arsenal performance?

BTW don't let Wenger baiting or VAR Move the goal posts of the conversation we should be having.

Today was really bad.

As bad as the last two games have been good and that is Mikels biggest problem.

Incapable of getting a good run of form.

Many said we had the easiest run I'm of the top 6 clubs. I don't recall winning 3 PL games in a row. The level of inconsistency is simply evidence of poor coaching and too many sub standard players. More should have been done to integrate other fringe players who can play in a more helpful way. This extra work is why he was made manager and not just a coach. Willian, Ceballos and Elneny have literally reversed all the hard work of shipping out Özil and co. They have no use at all. Playing Laca and Tierney before was a poor decision. We wouldn't have been worse with Balogun stuck up front tbh. Now we look down to the bare bones. As Roy Keane said, we were awful and we have been all season in every competition.

We never challenged for the title in 2008, 2010, 2011, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Arsenal were right in the race for years. Anyone who says otherwise is either ignorant or is part of the agenda.

You think we were part of a title race for years? Are you broken? We stayed in the 68-75 point total nearly every single season. That won't even win you a title in Uganda.

Weird, despite playing an average game, we still should have won like 4-1...our finishing was terrible, and they only had 1 shot each half...football ffs :lol:

Anyway, annoying today and my boy will take some flack...but we move, plenty of games left!

Your ignorant, Arsenal were well in the race. Some years we fell off because of injuries, poor tactics or lack of real leadership. But we certainly challenged in those seasons I mentioned.

Our fringe players cannot contribute in a more helpful way. The only way this team can play well is a play a certain set of players every game and hope they stay healthy throughout the season which is unrealistic as we have seen. We give uneven performances because we are a severely limited uneven team.

AM's paradox - we have a top 4 quality team (if we play certain players and certain formations every game) so our league position is Arteta's fault. Rotating lower quality players into the squad is Arteta's fault. Players making individual mistakes during games due to their own mental lapses - Arteta's fault. Moaning about AMN, Nelson, Willock, Ceballos, Mari, Cedric, El Neny, etc playing not being good enough, Arteta's fault.

AM does this every weekend with no consistency of what they're saying. It's counter intuitive when you follow posters from thread to thread.
