The way the Toon played it was a very easy game to win, he still needs to go.


It's getting stupid now - when we win, well it's because the other team were rubbish, when we don't it's Arteta's fault.
f***ing childish.


Not really just being realistic, do you think the Toon played well? I think people just want us to have something to look forward to each in each game dare I say entertaining well we are not going to get it with this clown are we.

They have little to play for but at the end of the day a win is a win. Agree we didn’t have to do too much but I’ll take it all day long.

No Toon didn't play well, but they wanted to win and we didn't let them play.
Our defence was solid. Our midfield was controlled, if a little negative and we played decent down the flanks, goalkeeper was dominant when he had to be.
We earned the victory.
If we play like that against Villareal, we're through.

Wonder why we cannot replicate these performances more often.

It's because Arteta keeps chopping and changing the team, formations and tactics.
Some tweaking based on the opponent is fine, but the amount f change is so much it's impossible for players to get into any sort of ryhthm.

What ......... a crap performance? we replicate them plenty.

Don't get me wrong I take nothing away from the win, but we were bang average and only scored due to a wonder goal from a guy we barely play and one well crafted goal from another guy Arteta barely plays.

On another day that would of been 1-0 against a horrendous, and I mean horrendous Newcastle team.

Glad we got the win but its difficult to take any heart from such an average or even below average performance.

Sheffield and 2nd leg against Prague were the only two very good performances recently, the rest have been draws, losses and a boring win against a sht team.

This is not the stuff of top 6 teams.

Newcastle had beaten West Ham , drawn with Liverpool and drawn with Spurs in a 4 game unbeaten run prior to playing us.
We played well and dominated them.
It was a decent performance.


I think we've had a few good games in the last couple of months, but we're inconsistent.
I get the frustration because we simply don't know what we're going to get week in week out in the areas one would absolutely expect consistency... effort, confidence and a clear plan, BUT I think there are some good signs.

I'm not slating Newcastles run of games and don't really care what they did in their last 4 games.

...........I'm stating a clear fact, Newcastle played like sht against us.

There is no getting around that, we were in 2nd gear all game and they barely troubled our goal and we weren't exactly playing electric either.

We were bland and overly cautious, they were complete crap, where's the untruth there?

Correct assessment, we were dire but they were like a pub team.

Mikel Arteta’s job at Arsenal remains safe and there is expectation that he will now be given extra funds for the next transfer window. [@DeanJonesSoccer]

Newcastle’s motivation is now our problem as well ? We totally bossed an end of season game

Great we bossed a meaningless game against a side who already know they’re safe and have nothing to play for, let’s give ourselves a par on the back for that one!

If this is true it’s no real surprise, this club has been going down the pan for years, this is just another step towards best by midtable regulars as we have been for 2 seasons now.

Arteta has zero ability as manager, only someone incompetent could think he’s doing a good job.

Under this lot we’ll probably end up getting relegated, can’t say we didn’t have it coming with this acceptance of mediocrity, this club screams mediocrity from top to bottom, it’s only a big club in name.

How did we end up with owners who think midtable is a good performance, I guess that comes from knowing nothing about the sport.
