    Absolutely gassed after that performance. Will go a long way in rehabilitating my Emery PTSD. Gracias Mikel

    Today is the first time in a looooong time I felt we were set up correctly tactically, not sure how Arteta takes the blame for a 1-1, what more can he do? He cant make Lacazette hit the target or the players final balls hit, he's clearly already changed something as it looked like a complete different set of players out there compared to the last few months.

    I weren't even in favour of hiring Arteta but damn I'm impressed but not getting carried away so far, the players actually look interested and like they want to play the style of football.

    People also need to consider how poor we are away from home and how short in confidence the players are it'll take months to get things right. People will have to show alot of patience

    We were so quick to find Özil between mid and defense. Özil will enjoy a lot more playing under Arteta. I do believe Özil is in decline but he was very good today. Same for Xhaka and Torreira. They understood their roles a lot clearly than before.

    A lot lot lot of work need to be done. But hopefully it was signs to come.

    I loved how both AMN and Saka overloaded midfield at times. So many little thing that were obviously different, and Im sure when he makes a selection of his own we will be a good team once again.

    I was encouraged. Really encouraged. It's a shame we weren't very good when it came to the final ball but our positioning and overall shape was miles better. The forwards were more coordinated in their pressing. Auba, Laca, Nelson and Özil all pressing and cutting channels very well. AMN tucking in when on the ball made him look 10x better at RB. Xhaka and Torreira also looked decent. I doubt we will look anywhere near this v Chelsea but there were positives.

    If I had one quibble it was the end product. Nelson's not a run and cross winger so he struggled with his delivery often, same with Saka who over hit a bunch of crosses. I would have liked to see Pepe a bit more aswell but likely he still has a slight knock, that or Nelson's doing more running. Also still think Laca and Auba do not need to be shoehorned together for the sake of it. For next game, if Martinelli is still not fit, Pepe must start from the right and Nelson from the left. Will give us more balance IMO.

    You're overdoing it now mate, getting boring. What else do you want people to say? They say saw positives so that's what they're gonna post.

    Why don't you offer your opinion on the game instead of sh!tting on others?

    Marco Rose and Artera are the best looking managers in world football.

    Nobody is saying he's the new messiah of Arsenal btw.

    Most comments are in isolation to the game today and not an opinion on how great he's gonna be based of it.

    Too much hyperbole, I want balanced reviews instead of people turning into like rabid fans for Arteta.

    Just look at the small details. Özil and Torreira comfortable. AMN positioning. More shoots for than against. More possession. Better control.

    Really should have got him during that International break.

    Other than the obvious OTT stuff on the match-day thread, most opinions have been fairly balanced insofar as we're taking the positives in the context that it was his first game as manager, after having very little time to train.

    We spent 10 months agonizing over Emery's failures, of course people are going to focus on the positives.
