Mikel Arteta: Miktoria Concordia Crexit

farzad4daarse

Pub League Mik, Out by November !!!
It was before his departure.
Unless Wenger is really petty and irrational he shouldn’t blame Arteta. He can hate the owners, the board and not want to come back to even visit. That I could understand but what did Arteta do? He was an assistant at city, Emery was given the job and failed, was Arteta supposed to turn down a job at one the biggest clubs in the world because they let go Wenger 2 years before? Arteta wasn’t at the club and had nothing to do with his dismissal.

He doesn’t hate Arteta bro :lol:. Did you ever get round to reading his book?

He specifically mentions sections of the board and the fans when talking about those who hurt him. He’s quite complimentary about his former players although he doesn’t mention Arteta at all.

What are you on about?
I just said that Wenger really disliked his departure from the club, that's why he has never visited the Emirates ever since. And I doubt he's making an exception for Arteta, it's not like they are old pals or something.

I know I agree with you, I am about 60 percent done with his book. Put it down to read something else but probably will finish it shortly. That is my point why would he hate Arteta like some are claiming he wouldn’t even talk to Arteta and Arteta is lying about being in touch with Arsène

Then why did he buy Arteta, play Arteta, and make him his captain out everyone else on the squad?

There was a bit last season where Arteta claimed he spoke to Wenger for advice regularly and Wenger came out and said he hadn’t spoke to Arteta since he was at the club. So, yeah that was a thing.

Why did he buy Mustafi, play Mustafi and make the captain sometimes?
Wenger bought hundreds of players and dozens of them wore the captain armband.
Piss off, mate.
Yes it would be equally irrational to dislike Mustafi, just like Arteta he didn’t get Arsène fired. I’ll be happy to piss off, trying to talk sense to the irrational is tedious

Interesting but if Arteta reached out to speak to him and he gave Arteta the cold shoulder it would seem petty to me. Either way Arteta shouldn’t lie about it

Nobody laughs on my "jokes" 😫
I dunno man, i think the idiots may now understand his achievements more.
i would love to see Arsène back someday even its just to watch a game or turn up at the training ground , perhaps in an informal ambassador type role.
I dont want him front & centre but I do want him to feel love & that he is appreciated by the club & fans.
I wish that were true but football fans are emotional and unreasonable. Just last weekend Brighton fans were booing Potter for not winning a game. A club that has no business competing for European places but the fans aren’t happy in 9th place and one point off the Conference league. Football fans are entitled and problematic and Wenger has outgrown the need to satisfy them.

We've got such a petty and vindictive fanbase.

I assume we're all Arsenal fans here first and foremost? Therefore we want the club to succeed both on field and off field.

If Arsène came back in some capacity would that be to the betterment of the club as a whole? Undoubtedly yes and it would help right some wrongs the club made in the process and hopefully heal some wounds.

I was Wenger in till the end. I couldn't give a toss who wanted him out back then. I'm not interested in punishing those fans who did or making his potential return about Arteta or Kroenke.

It's up to Arsène If he wants to come back. I'd understand if he didn't but any sane Arsenal fan should want him back in the fold because it would make our club better.

It is just bizarre to be fighting the civil war long after it is over. I would like to see Wenger back at the club in some capacity but not as a manager, maybe as a board member and I think he would be great in the running the commercial sponsorship and promoting the club. But I can respect his decision to if he didn’t want to have anything to do with the club

Indeed I noticed that the sea gulls fans were booing the team. I was shocked. Do they forget that they were in the championship not too long ago.

It’s that kind of entitlement that annoys me from football fans. No one has any given right to win games or trophies.

Brighton does have business competing for European places, the way the talent of the manager raises the level of the team makes them aware of that. They have seen the improvement and know the standard has elevated, to a point they can dream with that kind of stuff because what they see every week gives them enough evidence. Someone that can shoot on target seems to be the only missing piece.

They boo for the same reason a lot of people here accept the horrors of Mikel Arteta as if we were a team that "has business" being midtable, basically.
 

Arsenal Quotes

One of the things I discovered in Japan was from watching sumo wrestling. At the end you can never tell who has won the fight, and who has lost, because they do not show their emotion because it could embarrass the loser. It is unbelievable. That is why I try to teach my team politeness. It is only here in England that everybody pokes their tongue out when they win.
