All said, still a good decision to let Emery go. He's showed this is about his level.

Not winning by a bigger margin, especially making a defensive substitution when he really could have put arsenal to the sword in the 1st League was a reminder of his bad habits while here as well.

Arteta should be given his marching orders today. Announce it let the tea lady take the team the last few games and get a decent manager in whoever the best one is available.

We wasted 72m on Pepe. Have clearly overspent on Partey. Time we invested in a good manager.

Well, we were given the golden opportunity to flip him for Tuchel, meaning we'd only really take a hit for Arteta and his boys' comp (but we wouldn't have had to "buy out" Tuchel) and we bottled it, or rather it probably wasn't even a real consideration.

And honestly even if Arteta did go, would we trust THIS BOARD to replace him? I'm worried SA, I'm very worried.

Patterns are pointing to an extended period of mediocrity and we simply don't have the same spending power as a Chelsea or even a Utd so smart moves are a requirement, yet sometimes you wonder if there's even a single footballing brain cell among the top brass at the club :facepalm:

To be fair that ree-tarded cone woman Bracewell-Smitgh didn't have any footballing brains back in the day either, and she alongside fiszman were a massive reason why we are in this mess to begin with.

Here since 2009. Unlike Cornavirus.
Is a complete/perfect manager now? No.

Is he a top coach? Absolutely. His peers don't just come out with bollocks for no reason. These are well respected guys speaking highly of the man in a coaching sense. So me saying I think he will be a world class coach in the future has grounds.

For you to simply dismiss that because you want an apology is disgusting.

Let me have my opinion on the man without breathing down my neck wanting me to say something I don't believe in. Now do one.

Can any of you guys seriously be bothered to watch any of next season with the status quo remaining?

I won't watch one minute. This club just weighs on my soul. It offers NOTHING good.

I don't want to but I'm disabled and we're still recovering from a pandemic. It's all I've got in terms of a vague communal feeling at the moment, which is massively disheartening in and of itself. Guess I could watch city cos I do like Foden, even if I find the club contemptable.

Sorry mate. Let's hope we get in new ownership to give us all reason to hope again.

Don't think merely a new manager will do much.

No, but Sarri picking weekly fights with these useless lumps could be entertaining at least.

Which would of course make the bord sack him without an afterthought. 'class and tradition' after all. yawns.

I was thinking about it last night. If you swapped the managers for those two legs and had the same squads we probably dominate them over the two legs and go through, yet Emery isn’t good enough but Arteta is the man at the heart of the rebuild. This is one of those rebuilds where you think you’re getting in a good tradesman but they leave your house worse than when they started out.

Never wanted Arteta, hes ****, we all know that but at the same time the players have to take a lot of blame here also;

How do you go a whole half or even close to an entire game with no urgency to score 1 goal when thats all you need?

Clubs a lot worse than ours can put even the best of sides under pressure in games like this, yet Villarreal never looked uncomfortable, these games usually have the team in Villarreal's position literally hanging on, defenders making huge blocks, diving infront of everything, multiple players getting cramp from the intense pressure they're under.. but there was none of that!

You see it all the time, the team needing 1 goal, no matter who it is would automatically turn up the heat and bombard the opposition, even the ****test of clubs can manage it, **** we've even done it before but its only in spells to get us through ie Slavia when we needed a goal, but its never that sustained tense pressure other clubs turn it up to.

The ONLY player who looked anything like I described was Martinelli, he came on and played intense, on the edge and with direct purpose to attack.

Arteta needs to go, but the players we have have massive problems with desire and will to win.

Lacazette and Martinelli should have started, they are the only two players we have who seem to play with some intensity and desire to win (Tierney wasnt fit), Aaron Ramsey would have single handedly pulled us through that game, but that is exactly what I'm talking about; no big game players with high work rates left, we now have a bunch of players who are waiting for someone else to do it.

You dont need a manager having to baby you through 90mins, players need to be able to turn up the pressure themselves.
