Says the guy who wanted Arsenal to lose every game under Emery so stfu about me being a troll. Not once have I wanted us to lose a game even with this joke in charge.

Can you say the same?

Chelsea up next, when Mustafi lies on the ground in our box flailing to clear the ball, infront of Willian & Co in the 1st half....

& the transfer window is still open!

Hopefully Sokratis will play instead.

I'd like an improvement on Xhaka in mid in this window. God pls! #COYG

Im not really pointing fingers though. I will give Mikel the time he needs because we have a shower of shit team and we need atleast 1 summer to get rid of some players. Though i still feel its a mistake to sign up an unexperienced manager at our all time low(well, astleast as long i can remember).

Where i just disagree with some posters that they claimed MASSIVE improvements compared to our game under emery. This is where i disagree.

Piece from Metro News report on Kurzawa....
https://metro.co.uk/2020/01/18/layvin-kurzawa-drops-arsenal-transfer-hint-social-media-12080623/

Arsenal started their game against Sheffield United with Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Bukayo Saka as full-backs with Arteta admitting he wants specialist defenders to play instead. ‘We are playing with full-backs that are not full-backs,’ Arteta said on Wednesday. ‘They are wingers or central midfielders and could we afford to lose full-backs? No, but we don’t have any full-backs.’


this is a Manager who cares,.... we don't know the financial situation but this is nice to read,

along with rumors of a DM coming in this Jan Transfer window hopefully to truely help Torreira out.

this is Foward thinking, it will take time, I hope that in the coming weeks Arteta improves the efficiency of the team, optimisies it by

moving on some old players [Musti & Xhaka I pray] & bringing in Improvements! I back the Manager!#COYG

Needed to get the win today, they’re a good team and a simple 1-0 would’ve been a good result to build on.

1 win in 5 league games so far, 6 points from 15, pretty poor return so far.

His 2nd tier makeshift LB Saka was the best player on the pitch today,
Give Arteta time his defence is going to look very different we are just going to have to weather the storm until summer

It's far to early to judge, emery had a solid year, hard task though the squad is well of the pace.

I've just realised I've never heard him speak as an Arsenal manager. Didn't listen to crap he spewed when he joined or pre/post match interviews.

He truly has turned fans off.

I've read what he said. Said all the right things but on the pitch he's been a disaster.

He's sticking with Xhaka, playing Mustafi and not giving Ceballos a chance, Guendouzi came on too late and Nketiah isn't going to win us any games right now, should have stuck with Lacazette.

Just nor impressed with this guys' decision making, if he also agreed for us to bring that 3rd choice CB from PSG have to question his judgment on that as well.

Always said he's not got time for me, we had 13 years of Wenger underperforming, followed by 18 months of Emery, I'm not going to keep giving a manager a free pass, he needed to hit the ground running, so far he's been poor IMO, I was never convinced before he arrived, if anything I'm even less convinced now.

He talked a good game (something we're all familiar with as our players have talked a good game for a decade and then flopped on the pitch), sadly on the pitch execution has been very poor, seemed to be happy with today and just settled on blaming VAR it seems, you make your own luck, just look at Liverpool.

Some people bought into the hype, I didn't.

So you don’t want Mustafi playing today and you want David Luiz to play in midfield

Ozim out here wanting us to play a defensive pairing of 1 knee Rob Holding & Zech Medley

Today we played the best performing defence in the league with our best striker in the stand, our own defence has capitulated to injury so that was at best makeshift,
Today had draw written all over it !!!
What I see that is possitive is we now compete and win 50/50 balls, the mindset on the pitch is evolving
