On one hand Arteta has a reputation of being person with great footballing brain with the likes of Pep, Wenger, Poch speagking highly of him. On another, he spent his career at Arsenal team led by Wenger - good attacking team but with the s***ty defence and then went on to be Pep's assistant at freely attacking City with leaking defence. And now he goes to Arsenal and his biggest task is to tighten up the defence but seems to me he did not have a mentor from whom he could learn how to set up team's defence so that they don't concede too many.

I would actually give them credit for getting Arteta in, shows more imagination than signing up to a journeyman mercenary. They have a young team with a faltering rebuild program, it's not a team falling anymore, it's a team trying to find a formula to build around, off of a poor transfer philosophy.

Plus, their squad is quite s***e, so hardly an exciting proposition considering the expectation level involved.


I see your point of view. For the record by the way I was not opposed to signing Howe and doing a Pochettiino 2.0 at Spurs.

Long-term sustainable youth development has merits. We has success and stopped doing it.

However, I would have feared Arsenal more with a manager like Simeone who could sure up the defence.

Then again, if Mourinho is struggling with us, it probably is a player or squad recruitment problem, and I agree manager doesn't necessarily solve that unless sporting direction is addressed.

We'll only really see next season who is doing better with what they took over.

I'd take a young and fresh manager over a manager who finds it hard to move with the times. Arteta may need a defensive coach in his back room staff, but he played as an anchor midfielder, so although thought of as a more attacking player for that role, he shouldn't be clueless about how he wants a defence to operate in an attacking team.

Please enough of this feeling for the Arse, I think they have more money to spend than us and will get up there more likely than us. If we won a competition maybe then feel
sorry for them, but we have not and they are more likely to recover. I hope I am wrong..!

I was hoping that Man UTD would beat Chelsea today so that it wasn't an all-London FA Cup that we were not involved in... oh well. I don't live in London (obviously :grinny: ) so I don't have a first hand feel on how the general sports atmosphere is there with your neighbors and co-workers supporting other teams, but if it's like over here in Miami with other teams fans in all sports, I'm going to guess its not fun having to listen to/put up with. Not rooting for Chelsea in the Cup Final, but I basically want the team in red to score less goals than the team in blue.

Maybe not so good to have a manager without experience starting his career in a club in decline, that needs a lot of changes, has issues with top players et cetera.. :)

Hope we mess up their season further in the upcoming NLD :)

This is the first time for an age that I expect to steamroller them. I just hope that Jose isnít allowing any complacency into the squad about this game.

Yep, he won them an FA Cup last season, they've won it numerous times during their decline over the last decade. It's papering over cracks on a vast magnitude systematically. Their recruitment has been nothing short of diabolical in terms of addressing their needs. They buy the likes of Pepe just to appease the fans...........It's very short lived.

We keep hearing they are in decline but they keep winning the odd trophy.

Funny old side they have right now because they are very unpredictable.

Glad we have levy as our owner and not kroenke , or is it kranke ? anyway he's a ( endangered wildlife trophy hunter )

Very cowardly ! as wild animals cant stand up to high powered rifles / technology etc.

It sort of stands as conclusive proof that the FA Cup is something all of it's own. Nice to win it, but in terms of progress, it really isn't any sort of benchmark.
