I am cautiously optimistic about the appointment of arteta. i think he will be a success provided he is backed in the transfer market.

I hope the first thing arteta should do in the next few months is do what his mentor guardiola did, gut the dressing room and get rid of deadwood. I remember Ronaldinho, the great Ronaldinho, being one of the first casualties of the guardiola regime. I assume guardiola thought ronaldinho had a poor work ethic-something necessary in guardiola's game plan.

It is very important for a young coach to get rid of some players to establish authority. If the likes of auba won't buy into arteta's philosophy, i think they should be sold. Our attackers don't work hard defensively and am afraid this might bring problems between them and arteta.

nonetheless, i think it is a good appointment and a step in the right direction. I Hope the fans support him and stop moaning about his inexperience. He won't come good if we don't give him unwavering support.

I would 100% back a huge clear out Punami mate, where absolutely no one is untouchable and where only those who are both totally committed to and capable making Arsenal Football club the best it can possibly be again survive.
ripitupandstartagain.com says I.

gunner62 mate, did you see what de bruyne said about our attackers? apparently, they noticed that they never track back. Now this is where it gets more interesting. Apparently, it is arteta who does most of the analysis on the opposition at City. What happens now when arteta asks this players to work harder? will they do as he says or will it lead to dressing room unrest? Will the board back arteta if he tries to cull the squad?

There are some players that have to go in my opinion. It is absolutely necessary that they are gotten rid of. In my opinion this ones are:mustafi, luiz, xhaka and ozil. In my opinion it is imperative that this players go.

And then there are players in the maybe category for me:I would prefer if they left but i wouldn't mind them staying. For me, this ones are:bellerin, kolasinac, sokratis, torreira, lacazette and aubameyang.

If I was Artetta I'd be asking those questions way before I took the job Punami mate wouldn't you?
I'm absolutely sure the reason no announcement has been made is because both parties are weighing up the pro's and cons of working together and as much as Arsenal will want Artetta to impress them the feeling will be absolutely mutual fron Artetta I'm sure.
Artetta isn't desperately seeking Susan, out of work and looking to accept any job that comes his way, he's already got an excellent job and I'm sure he won't be giving it up unless he's happy with what he's walking into.
He will come on his terms or not at all I'm sure of that.

Good original post PG, I agree 100%. It seems the doubters about Arteta are more about the current state we are in, and whether he can turn it around, rather than doubting his ability. Also many rightly question his lack of experience, but then I would say we just had a manager with bags of experience and trophies, and where did that get us? So should he come there is absolutely no guarantee he will do well, but there is also no guarantee that an Allegri or Ancelotti will do well either, and at least Arteta is already involved in the EPL currently, which actually might give him an advantage over the others? If I were him, the first call I would make would be to Martin Keown, to come in as a coach, as I think that would endear himself immediately with any doubters. Second call should be to Valencia to see how much they want for Geoffrey Kondogbia (that one is for me! ) .

I certainly hope he comes on his own terms and clears out this overpaid, lazy prima donnas.

Good post PG. No matter who is manager we need to change culture around the club. Hostility only makes things worse.

I would prefer someone with more experience but if he’s our guy, I will back him and give him time

Hope they treat Freddie with respect as they’ve hung him out to dry as a caretaker coach.

You read far too much into these things 62, quite amusing at times .

Probably the fact that he didn’t want to announce before their game at Oxford

What think you lol.

Does reading too much into things include declaring Ancelotti as Everton boss on Monday ;-)
But really pleased I keep you amused sweet cheeks as that's most definitely the aim x x :-)
