  1. Arteta & Edu are total failure, one minute they want him out, he does well at Euro, they get sceptical, back in training, they now want to keep him. Who knows? They might finally accept 2 cents offer from Roma…Maybe promote him captain if Auba leaves…

    Til arteta leave,we will remain in second half of table we are at for 18 month, lucky to finish 8th Infamous spot; players & fans will have to cope with it.

    Arteta has no clue and can’t blame him but Edu Sanielli & clowns managing this club, fooling Kroenke who has no clue of football. Or Arteta & these clowns be out and never there in first place….

    Wenger was more than a coach, he was running this club!
