Can't you differentiate between expectations and prediction?To be honest, I really don’t get how some of you think Arteta can get the team to top 6. There’s nothing from what we saw last season and what we’ve seen this season so far to suggest that the team can finish top 6 with him in charge.
Yes we defend well but that’s because the whole team defends. We don’t know how to transition from defence to attack, we don’t know how to attack. It’s no surprise that we hardly win games (if at all) whenever a team scores before us. That’s because all we do is defend.
I’ll like to see stats on how many points we’ve won from a losing position and how many games we’ve won when the opposition has scored first. Will be interesting to see.
With the above, you therefore go into games hoping we score first. Not sure how we want to finish top 6 with that kind of performance.
Overall, not even sure the football we play is the kind I want to see Arsenal play.
