    Would be good if the interviewer asked him whether he expects to qualify for Europe let alone win a football match with those young signings this season?

    Every fan wants their club to win big trophies . However The league and transfer agents have no respect they just want Arsenal’s premium pounds and dollars.. clearly Arteta is not Pep.. Players became less creative no freedom Every transfer was a failure.. fail to scout genuine quality , fail to produce. Transfer was the biggest problem since the invincibles

    I disagree about CONSISTENCY … we’ve been VERY CONSISTENT : we CONSISTENTLY sell good players we CONSISTENTLY keep deadwood at the club we CONSISTENTLY make terrible transfer decisions. We’ve been CONSISTENTLY planning for the future for the last 10 years.

    We need about 2 more legit tough CB , Odegard I’m not really sold on him but we will see . We have enough wingers . Dennis Zakari would be a perfect fit . Two Young strikers . Dolberg and another younger one

    They are basically rebuilding. Starting from scratch. Arteta will get 3 more years. In America we sign coaches on 5 year contracts. This transfer window is to let Arteta pick his guys and we will see where we’re at by then. I’ve waited 10 years for my NFL team to be back on top. With 3 new coaches through that span of time. Be patient. 3 years and we will see. If it’s a success then I can guarantee Arsenal will be winning back to back league titles.

    On the money, the squad needed to be strengthened and has been. It also has longevity meaning fewer higher profile players will be added in the next window or two. Looking forward to seeing our strongest team out soon.

    Nah I know a lot of people are gonna disagree with what he is saying but I completely agree. Same thing happened with liverpool. They bought in a few small name players that are now considered the best players in the world (salah and robbo for example) as it fit their system and they were able to build that foundation to then go on and sign a big player as they did with Virgil. So even though I’m an arsenal fan and hate the club completely right now I understand where he is coming from.

As much as I know it's not possible for Arsenal to win the premier the idea that the league is already over for us 3 games in is a joke. 1st place is nearly double digit in points difference from us after just 3 games......

    Actually, our pre season was disastrous..... We had to get to the level where we left last season...... which didn’t happen...., as our primary drivers Saka and Odegaard joined late. That left Auba and ESR alone & arsenal goalless. That put more pressure on our defence which wasn’t ready as Luiz left. Also Holding had to be chosen before Mari on the left with Ben White on the right which didn’t happen & was a strategic error as well. We didn’t even have a proper RB and no Partey, which was the cause of few goals as well.

    Guys. Stop with this herd mentality and let them get on with this. For me it makes sense and requires time, if it doesnt work ok, but dnt kill them before they’ve even played and had time to gel, ur negative pressure is what could kill our club and affects the players moral, SUPPORT THE TEAM.

    So he is basically telling auba and laca that the next few years were not going to seriously challenge for anything big. We are building a foundation this year and then some day we will replace you with one or two world class players. This really just sounds like a bunch of the same! It would have been nice to hear that we are really hoping to turn things around befor the winter break and if we need to grab one or two more to get back into champions league next window then we will because Arsenal deserves to be playing for all major tournaments and seriously challenging for them also!

    The DoF, the manager and all the decision-makers at the club need to protect themselves from the public opinion, especially when there is negativity, toxic and violent vibes outside the club. They have to keep working in their plan and be together. Arsenal are in a process of building the best team possible for the next 4 or 5 years and that always is going to take time to learn, to improve and make the right decisions in recruitment in order to sign the right players for the club. There's so much stupidity and nonsense among the Arsenal fans nowadays and that helps nobody. A fanbase can be destructive sometimes and the Arsenal board must prepared to keep believing and working in the project they've planned.
