Man was doing well when he had a 4-2-3-1 with ramzil, with two DMS behind them soon as he tinkered with that shit and started playing mkhy, guendo iwobi as much or more than ozil and Rambo and changing formations and f***ing about with xhaka in lb or whatever its gradually gone Pete tong.

He committed a cardinal sin, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

Please support the club and the manager at the very, very least for one whole season.

Club > agenda's


I'm sorry, but why?

We're only 4 pts clear off Wenger's worst ever season at Arsenal - and we have a better team than last season.


That's certainly one way of looking at it. The other is to say we're one away win away from beating our overall haul last season, in half the time.

Perspective.

Liverpool had a crap defence and no width. Then Klopp signed Mane and Salah.

Strikingly similar.

We only really have space for one starting winger. Auba has to be out wide

Dunno what we’re gonna do tbh, I’m not enjoying the unpredictability at the minute

We'll be buying more than 1 winger over the next few windows. Auba and Laca can fight for 1 position and push each other.

Our position is so similar to Klopp taking over at Pool. The only problem is the competition is much stronger now than when Klopp took over. Klopp had little money and banked on freebies to nick 4th. Competitors are much more advanced and further ahead now, so scraping 4th is going to be very very difficult and doing it with no money and also banking on freebies (by the looks of it) will be tough.

And if it was weaker
Klopp did not do as well as emery in his first 28 games
Winning games wise
Defensively or offenceivly ( we have scored 17 goals more)
In fact klopp wasn't doing better than Wenger after 100 games

I would love nothing more than for Arsenal to get punished by the FFP because they're spending too much money. This will never happen.
