Mikel Arteta


#482

Arteta from 11-13 was as good a 6 as we’ve had in a long time, as good as Gilberto and Petit in their prime, just in worse teams and without the golden mist of nostalgia added.

Wouldn’t say he was that good but he was definitely the best DM from the Emirates era and hugely underrated during his time here imo.

Everyone seemed to roast him for the sideways passes etc. But Arsenal’s play got a whole lot worse since he declined.

What happen to the “anything is better than Wenger” attitude I got from some of you?

Now it’s time to bring back the famous advert in Arsenal’s history to recruit a manager.

“Arsenal Football Club is open to receive applications for the position of TEAM MANAGER. He must be experienced and possess the highest qualifications for the post, both as to ability and personal character. Gentlemen whose sole ability to build up a good side depends on the payment of heavy and exhorbitant transfer fees need not apply.”

Arsenal’s philosophy not just Wenger’s…

Look, sacking Wenga was just to protect themselves. Greedy cunts.


#487

Fucking pathetic :facepalm:


#488

I want you to email Gazidis and apologise for this slander when we win the treble.

Everything seems to be pointing to Arteta now. I’m just excited to have a new manager come on at the club, but this one will definitely be a hit or miss, we’re not be skating around fourth place. It’ll be glory or failure :grin:


#490

IT’S ACTUALLY HAPPENING?!?!

First Wenger announcing his resignation on a Friday in New York, now Arteta on San Isidro :heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

Feels too good to be true :crossed_fingers:


#491

Get lost. Nothing against Arteta, but he is zero experience as manager.


#492

Spanish going spanish. Typical.


#493

Will be quoting this in 2 years time. Love the search function on this forum.

Arteta and Xabi Alonso :giroud2:


#494

You have lost the plot FFS!


#495

I feel all this hype is making me come around a bit, the same way a little bit of hype made me come around a bit when we signed best winner of possession in the opposing half Danny Welbeck.

ARTETREBLE INCOMING LADSSSS

:cech::gabriel::giroud2::santi:


#497

If we get Arteta I take it there’s a 100% chance we’ll be seeing you at the Emirates next season :grin:


#498

Yeah, until the restraining order kicks in :grin:


#499

Don’t be jealous Jade my asian friend, jealousy is what leads to actual restraining orders, just ask @Trion

It would be a good time to break my seven year drought… definitely should make sure I attend at least one home game in ARTREBLE season.
