I am a well known dissenter of Arteta. However I don’t see how anyone can knock him for the stance he has taken. He was asked a question and he said. I don’t know enough let me get some more information and I will get back to you. He hasn’t had an opportunity to speak on the issue yet because everything with the SL happened in a world wind 48hours.

Yes he could have gone out of his way to make a post or issue a statement but we don’t know if he was able to speak with the owners during this time. From all indications the ownership pretty much ghosted the staff and players with this.

If I were Arteta I am not going to publicly make a statement about something I don’t know about. Even if my intuition tells me it’s wrong I would at least want to talk to the owners who put me in that difficult situation and say explain yourself because my reputation could be on the line and I want to know what the hell is going on.

Fair to those players and managers of other teams who spoke out. To those who didn’t I won’t blame them too much right now because it appears that they were just as blindsided as the rest of us fans.

Fair enough, but I think the idea of supporting him being sacked if he doesn't win Europa is sound enough. He's made personnel decisions and selection decisions that have clearly cost us points in the PL, not just bad luck. Not just "rookie" things we can say he likely will grow out of either, and it is his innate traits and stubbornness that are my main concern. Stubbornness can be good, but not if it is stubbornness for certain preferences that adversely affect us.

Amazingly, for the first instance in a very long time, his existence as Arsenal manager has been the least of my gripes, such was the dire situation football was in over the past couple of days.

But as things return to normal over the next few days, so will my animosity :lol:

When you think about it, he’s been one huge disappointment hasn’t he?

You expect a younger coach to be setting your team up to be attacking, play expansive, entertaining football. Imagine starting your managerial career like a knock off Mourinho.

It’s only a select group of players I like at this club these days, the manager is unlikeable, the board are horrible and the owner is evil. What is there, there?

When we announced Arteta was gonna be our coach, we drew with Everton...then when he took over officially, we drew with Bournemouth and lost to Chelsea...even Ryan ****ing Mason gave Sp**s an instant manager bounce :lol:

He is not stubborn, he is just plain STUPID, very low IQ. He will not grow out of it because you cannot fix stupid.

Mikel Arteta is a very poor man's Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

Was the question specifically about Kroenkeout? Not knocking on Teta here, literally want to know. Would be kinda big if it were.
Yes, about the #Kroenkeout protest on friday (at least Charles Watts mentions it as such)

He actually handled most of the interview diplomatically, not specifically attacking Kroenke mentioning what the Kroenke's did say to him and saying along the lines of *they think what they did was with good intentions in their full responsiblity for the club, they still ****ed up in idea and execution*.

How harshly he condems the super league + his support of the fans protesting says it all though really.

Wonder if Arteta has been informed he will probably be sacked at the end of the season, so he's taking a few swipes at Stan before he goes...MY manager, going out swinging!

Doubt it. I don't think the Kroenke's would have bothered to apologize to him in person if they wanted him gone.
