    It's easy to criticize him. Giving the little financial buoyancy the club has, its difficult to make big moves knowing well that virtually the entire squad needs changing. Maybe he could've done better, we will find out at the end of the season

    As for transfers, I think Marina from Chelsea is doing a very good job. How she managed to get Saul from Athletico Madrid at the last minute of a dead line shows how it should be done. Arsenal should learn a thing or two from her. But nobody wants to play for Arsenal and Arteta at this moment 😁.

    He's basically saying he's damned if he does, and damned if he doesn't, but I respect the fact that he's taking a long term approach to things and starting with a foundation for the future with Odegaard (22), Saka (20), ESR (21), Ben White (23), Gabriel (23), Tomiyasu (22), Tierney (24), Sambi (21), Ramsdale (23), with Saliba (20) on loan.

    I think the signings were great this window. But to be a top team today, we need to sign those big players. yes some may not come because we have no champions league, but put the money on the table and see if they will. these type of signings will intimidate opponents and make the club look stronger.

    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.

    Arsenal are a joke but if you sack him and Arteta then it will just be another man the Arsenal fans will want out. These fans need to realise that they are genuinely a mid table club now and top people would never want to work under the Kroenke's. You can blame Edu and Arteta all you want but when they're gone you'll still end up in midtable trusting a new process. Rebuilding Arsenal under this regime of Kroenke will take 10+years for someone to do. Arsenal fans need to get real and stop living in a dreamland. Man United, Man City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Spurs, West Ham, Leicester, Everton and maybe even Villa are better than your club atm. Thats just scraping top 10. Nevermind Leeds, Wolves and co waiting to surpass you. You're the next Newcastle United. Accept it. Maybe you'll be Leeds and get Relegated in a couple years. Stop the delusion, Kroenke Out and then maybe Arsenal can try again

    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.

    The players Arsenal sign "for the future" aren't good enough tho. Not an Arsenal fan, but I understand the frustration of spending 15 yrs being told you're building for the future. How can they trust the club at this point? Borussia Dortmund build for the future, but they seem to attract players far better than what Arsenal do. If Dortmund can find players like Haaland, Sancho, Bellingham, Lewandowski, Gundogan, Reyna... and RB Leipzig also have a great scouting network, why do Arsenal not identify those calibre of players? Instead they sign Willian. I don't get it.

    Arsenal fans need to realise that Rome wasn't built in a day. What they are doing is what's best for the club in the long term. Give it 2-3 years and this team will consistently be right up there. Everyone wants results and big signings now but that's not what the club's need. Arsenal will be back at the top soon, fans just need patience. Man U were poor for nearly 10 years so we don't want to follow their lead. You can't build a house without the right foundations.

    He makes sense... He hasn't always signed the right players however this window was good and giving contracts to Gabi, Gabriel, ESR and Saka in the last year means 10 positions filled by good young talent who we would point at in envy had other clubs got them. The most difficult thing for man it to Believe. This is a big club and we will be good again

    Fair play to Edu for giving his explanation and responding to the critical fans. It's clear he had a strategy for how he's building the team. Whether it's the correct one or if it will be successful is another thing, but at least there's direction. Biggest problem right now is the manager. Arteta isn't using the players he has correctly and some of his tactical approaches have been setting the team up for failure.
