    How did Edu get this job? Anyone knows? Was he hired based on some previous record? Or was he hired ... because he was the friend of a friend ? (Yes, I know he played for Arsenal, so did tons of other dudes).

    Why can't Willian go pass any defenders when he is wearing an Arsenal shirt?. Because he was sad?

    Plenty of people earn big bucks and as long as they leave it on the field then people are generally fair. Thus guy didn't want to play for Arsenal and didn't put in a shift. He was an experienced pro who should have been using his experience to help those around him. Clearly didn't want to. A bif of a disgrace to the club and more of a disgrace to himself.

    I am brazilian and I saw Willian playing his first season as professional before playing for european clubs and to be honest even in Chelsea he was not playing what he can plays. He is a very skillfull and experienced player and you can't drop him in a team like Arteta did, he can definitly do more instead to be limited playing as forward and In my view, he was not well received by the others squad stars.

    😂😂 Arsenal consists of clowns from the management to players. I'm sure this man has close relationship with agents of both Luiz and Willian who were looking for decent contracts and he was looking to get in good signings for cheap so it looked like a win situation for both parties

    I call bulls**t! You can never expect to compete at the highest level by taking onboard your competitors' rejects. Willian may have brought experience to our club but so would Henry despite the fact that he is well past his best. And I can guarantee you Henry would put in more consistent shifts than Willian did. Willian actually played in the pre-season friendly against Rangers, so clearly he was still in Arteta's plans even though Stevie Wonder could see he was dead weight the season just gone. So at what point exactly did Willian tell you and Arteta that he felt uncomfortable? Because if I was liking tweets by my former club after they beat my current club, I wouldn't feel 100% comfortable either ffs. But what's actually funny is somehow Willian still came out of this with his head held high because HE took a pay cut to leave US. Edu, like Arteta, you're out of your depth, and I'm just waiting for you to sell Saka to one of our rivals and call it good business.

    Willian wasn't a bad signing at the time, just didn't work out, it happens. There's been much worse signings such as Luiz when they needed an old school no nonsense defender they opted for a ball playing centre back in the same mould as Mustafi et al which has been their achilles heel yet they reverted to type. Foolish is he who makes the same decision and hopes for a different outcome i.e their flawed transfer policy with centre backs

    I remember that all Arsenal fans were thrilled with willian signing and this includes all the channels in NOnet. Then they flip real quick and started to call him names. Arsenal fans are the worst fans. They feel entitled and have no loyalty to anyone. Can’t wait when they play in the championship.
