    We seem to making excuses and putting up with mediocrity. Especially as you said "We competed well for 45 minutes". Not good enough for the Arsenal.
    Agreed re kids though they're still learning to play together in our case, the point about that Man Ure side was they all came through the academy together i think

    But no it's not good emough for sure, at least Arteta didn't go all defensive from the outset though, that at least is progress of sorts...
    Arteta OUT (probably)

    You might be right. Iím not convinced about Arteta.
    But weíve been on a good run and Iím not going to overreact to a bad result, I donít think we should overreact to the good run either.
    But yes, letís see where we are in May.

    I think itís fair to have little Ďhowís it goingí reviews after every 10 games or so - youíve got to have something to talk about throughout the year - but not after every single result. Thatís gonna wear us all down pretty quickly.

    TBH, any top 4 finish needs to be because we have performed to a standard required for CL football the next season. As it happens, we still do not look a CL level team to me. Finishing top 4 would be nice this season, but I would rather we got the squad right first and start performing regularly at a consistently high level. We still have a lot of work to do, i would say we are only marginally better than last season.

    4th would obviously be great but for now I just want to see a team that’s capable of creating chances, scoring goals, dominating possession. If we do that we will always stand a chance of winning any match.

    I feel like we play football in patches and only really turn up for portions of a match. It’s just too robotic for me and I don’t believe we’re doing much off the cuff, it’s all telegraphed stuff from the training ground.

    Only 7 goals from open play is quite telling and having been here for 2 years now I don’t see anything changing from an attacking sense with Arteta, it’s the lowest scoring Arsenal side for a generation. We have a pair of strikers we spent over 100m on but they’ve declined badly under him and I have no doubt it’s down to the style of play that leaves them neutered and isolated.

    We should be looking to smash Newcastle this weekend and get some confidence flowing. I don’t feel like this team believes it can score goals at will and that’s what needs to change. We have a decent squad but I feel like it just lacks some inspiration and belief in itself.

    But as I said previously the best thing about this season is that it looks like you will not need to be a great team to finish 4th, so we should at least count ourselves in that conversation.

    I still have a lot of respect for Wenger and wouldn't mind him having some role - not sure exactly what that role should be tbh.
