    watching wolves vs southampton... and it just has me thinking how poor we are at the moment. I just dont get excited watching any of our games; even Wolves and Southampton have a more potent attack force than we do.

    to be fair, weve had teams in the past who would have been easier on the eye to watch in an attacking sense, but then go on to lose that same game 3-1.

    not that im disagreeing with you per se.

    Ive always said out of the big clubs in England, there are 3 that stand out to me as the most poorly managed from an ownership/boardroom standpoint.

    Newcastle, Leeds, and Arsenal.

    Leeds seem to have gotten their **** together over the last 2-3 years.

    Quite funny that last week Toni Kroos was complaining about Aubameyangs' goal celebrations.
    He must have a hell of a long memory !

    Looking like the same old problems.

    question: is there any way Arteta would get sacked at the end of the season? If he finished outside the top 8, I would probably sack him.

    My god we are so bad - we’re has all the energy and pressing game gone

    Auba looks completely out of touch, I would sub him

    This is turgid, abysmal. Xhaka can **** right off.

    We should go back to a 3-4-3 - at least we were defending well with this formation. Now we look toothless and open at the back.

    Saka trying to carry the side - no doubt he'll get substituted though.

    This is as dull as the worst under Emery. Good job there's no fans there. Not feeling Arsenal right now.

    We look toothless whatever the formation. Very depressing right now. Looking more and more like a honeymoon start rather than genuinely how it could be.

    For me there are always major warning signs with a manager if the entire team does not look fluid in the plan they are following.

    Artetas style is simply not working right now - we just don’t look like we can do anything going forward. Defensively, sure we are better, but I would not say we defend particularly WELL either.

    I really don’t want to be Arteta out, but...

    For me right now, it all points to the manager. Arteta just doesn’t have us playing like a team.

    Emery was sacked 13 games into last season with us in 8th spot and a prem record of:

    P13 W4 D6 L3 F18 A19 Pts18

    Arteta right now is in 14th and a record of:

    P10 W4 D1 L5 F10 A12 Pts13

    Arteta has worse points per game, far lower in the table, worse goals scored per game, marginally better defence (but not by much). And our football is equally as dour.

    I don't think we should be in the habit of firing, but if we're gonna fire Emery for being **** then...

    At least with the 3-4-3 we looked defensively organised.

    I mean it's been all us this half - but if Aubameyang is'nt scoring nobody is.

    we’ve had more possession, but have we had a single shot on target?

    I really like Arteta but I hope he gets given an ultimatum soon enough.

    Emery was told he needed to deliver Champions League on his Second Season.

    Arteta now one year in and we hav'nt really improved at all.

    We are simply woeful

    Wolves haven’t won here in 42 years
    Villa hadn’t won for similar time

    its a good job the fans aren’t there as it would be boos constantly - 3 home loses in the trot and deservedly losing.

    Spurs will destroy us
