John Radford’s son
Just watching this video above, I've been reminded of how standards at the club have fallen significantly over the last 16 years. To think Thierry says here finishing 4th isn't acceptable for a club like Arsenal...and then everything that happened after this point.
Of course, the reasons are multi-factorial, not least the stadium which hamstrung the club for years but has also become an easy get out of jail card for the ownership and management.
Mentality is overlooked in our downfall. We have become a club which has settled and settled until we've reached the predicament that we're currently in. Can one player (a Bruno type) restore that mentality and drag this club up back to where it should be, or are wholesale changes needed at every level?
Obviously Arteta is still a work in progress and we have to accept where we are at present...but I guess just seeing the above video made me slightly emotional. What we were and what we've become...
