Mikel Arteta: Miktoria Concordia Crexit

You miss the point the Lakers were also to a man the fittest teams with the hardest practices. Riley was famous micro manager and invented the tricks a lot of modern coaches use. The point is no but corporate bureaucrats giving a flying poop about culture. You are in show business mate the talent is more important than your stupid cultural reload.
It's not an either/or.

It was easier to be the fittest team back then. There were different standards and levels of professionalism to compete against.

By the way, @Heskey we need a 3 stooges poster now. Vinai as Curly casts itself :lol:
So, I got home from work and decided to create the image, and then when I went to save it as "Three Stooges of Arsenal" it turned out I was right, I already did create one back in August 2021. :lol: :lol:

So, now I have two versions.

The old one:
Three Stooges of Arsenal old.jpg

The new one:
Three Stooges of Arsenal new.jpg


Not sure which I like the most tbh.

Best era of Nba competition wise was 80s with 4 separate dynasty quality teams with stacked rosters, also prior to expansion. If those guys had nutrition, science, and knowledge we have today they would of been better. Arguable 4 of the 5 best players in history were dominant in that period. They would lose to today’s teams but only because they lacked the support infrastructure
and knowledge of today athletically not the difference you think. In terms of shooting the NBA has gotten worse from every spot but three point line. Those teams would with today’s teams were more athletic than the the Golden state warriors today. Golden state and no team since has had an athletic freak like Magic since.

My larger point is players today do a lot worse than what Arteta trashed Auba for if we are to believe reports. You don’t get to just through away talent because you are a mindless control freak and culture is more important, how many years did Sir Alex tolerate that aggressive troll Keane? Why because central midfielders like that don’t grow on trees and aren’t free.

Mods are unethical! Özil, come assist me please!
I don't understand how he made judgment that Saliba wouldn't get as many matches because of Gabriel and White this year. Pound for pound, how could could he believe. No preseason either as he probably didn't want his shiny 50 million pound signing White to get outshown. There is ultimate bias here.

Auba wasn't a trouble maker, simply a character bigger than Tets could handle & his fragile ego was threatened. Auba's a saint compared to Neymar & his ilk.

He took his exile in silence like a man breaking said silence only when he was at Barca & saying pretty much what we all suspected. It was an issue between him and Tets, nothing more nothing less.

Letting him go in January WITHOUT recruiting anyone to fill the void left by Auba was a foolish gamble that led to our collapse & it is solely on him and justification enough for his sacking.

Yet, this is no longer a big football club, otherwise he would've been sacked at St. James Park after full time when it was evident our top 4 goal was dead & buried.
Good post, I agree with you about the ego-tripper, he has virtually no man-management skills at all, he is like a little dictator his insecurities are our downfall. Why did we reward failure by giving him a new contract? Getting rid of our Abua without replacing him was madness it just shows how inept this man is as a manager, any other club would have sacked him not given him a new contract. Looks like Failure and mediocrity is the norm now sadly.

Auba, Mbappe, Ronaldo, Pogba, Neymar, Toure, Salah, Bergkamp... almost all of them have quirks and require special attention.

If you cannot handle personalities like these, you should go manage in League One.

Does this also applies to Tuchel this season?

He hasn't bought a single player.

Also, I think he's tried hard with Lukaku, regularly playing him despite his crazy agent.

But I mean... to quote someone on the forum, if you cant handle personalities... should you not be coaching in league one?

Or does that only apply to certain managers?
 

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.
