Opinion- 7 reasons why Arteta must be sacked now

Published

on

You can call it an agenda, or whatever you like, but I just can’t believe there is a way we can progress with Arteta as our manager, so here are my 7 reasons why I believe the sooner he leaves the better.

 

1) Our league position. This one, like most of the points should be enough by itself. We’ve lost 13 games, the worst record in like 90 years. Mid-table is not the Arsenal way.

 

2) The football we play. It’s not even boring, it’s depressing. The lack of ideas is unbelievable. The only time under Arteta where we played good football was between the Chelsea and Wolves games. Six or seven games in 18 months is not good enough for Arsenal.

 

3) The way we attack. I watch a European semi-final and I’m hoping Pepe or Saka dribble past 3 players on their own, because I don’t see any other way we will score. Luckily for us Saka made the most of it and we got a penalty. But let me tell you, if this penalty went against us, I’d be fuming. The fact it’s only individual quality that has a chance to help us score is scandalous.

 

4) The way we defend. Some people say Arteta made our defence better, but you see against Villarreal again – one pass beating our press, then 2 players easily taken out in the box and we concede an early goal again. It’s happened so many times this season it’s shocking. The corner that cost us a second goal, had Partey not even looking behind him. But if we hadn’t given the ball away so easily, we wouldn’t have conceded a corner in the first place.

 

5) Player favouritism. I can’t stress this one bad enough. We played without a striker, because Arteta doesn’t like Martinelli. When Gabi came on, our attack immediately had more purpose. Smith-Rowe was extremely poor, yet he played 90 minutes. Ceballos even being on that pitch was a complete joke, after he said he preferred Spain to England and said it will be difficult to stay. Might as well not take him on the plane back and we can leave Arteta in Spain too.

6) Lack of a backup plan. We are playing terrible, yet we don’t change anything. We actually played better with 10 man. We just don’t know what to do if things don’t go our way, which is ironic considering how many times it hasn’t. And Arteta says when we went 1 and then 2 down, it was difficult. Why didn’t we have that scenario down on our drawing board? We thought we were too good or something?

 

7) Late subs. Pep G might not like making early subs, but Arsenal is not Man City, a concept Arteta finds difficult to realize, even after more than a year. Ceballos was diabolical like he’s been in this competition more than once, yet we didn’t take him off, even though before he got sent off, he made a foul, that could’ve gotten him a second yellow. I’d have Elneny over him all day long. We should’ve been making changes at halftime, nonetheless. But we don’t do it and it’s difficult to understand. We rotate players, so we trust them, then why not bring them in and make a change. This thing with subs only after we concede, or minute 80 passes is really getting on my nerves. And it’s like fate is trying to tell him something, because the introduction of Martinelli brought more purpose to our attack. Auba got a chance immediately after coming on. Maybe if there were 30 more minutes for him, he might’ve scored one.

 

Arteta is extremely lucky to manage Arsenal football club. He shouldn’t be here. The Kroenkes won’t sack him, because they don’t care about this club, only it’s stock value. He is very lucky fans aren’t at the stadium. Why he’s given so much time and patience is beyond reason. He is truly finishing the job Wenger started and Emery continued. I sometimes think it’s deliberately done, to make us fans feel bad. We don’t deserve this. I can’t take another season like that. Arsenal made me love football and now I’m hating it. The person I become when I watch these games is not something I want to be.

 

As much as I hate the Kroenkes, they don’t play on the pitch or manage the team, although It wouldn’t make a difference if Josh K was in the dugout instead of Arteta, because he’d have just as little of an idea of what he’s doing as Mikel does. The reason they have to go though is that they allow this to happen and still back him.

 

 

I hope us fans can rally behind Daniel Ek and he finds a partner that can boost the reported 1.8 billion bid, because it won’t be enough. If people like Thierry can’t recognize the club, that tells something. Do you think, Paddy V would be happy in our dressing room at half time, or after the game, exchanging nice words? We are toothless and I can’t stand it. We accept mediocrity and there is always an excuse.

Enough is enough Arteta and Kroenke out..Ek in

Arsenal to agree deal with Italian head-coach

Published

on

Maurizio Sarri could reportedly be in line for a surprise return to Premier League with either Arsenal or Tottenham.

 

The Italian tactician has been out of work since being given the boot by the Serie A giants Juventus last August – in spite of guiding the Old Lady to their 36th Scudetto.

 

Sarri is understood to be eager to get back in the dugout next term, with Italian journalist Carlo Laudisa stating the 62-year-old could very well return to the English top-flight.

 

During an appearance on Radio Punto Nuovo, the Gazzetta dello Sport journalist said: “Sarri could go to England.

 

“The Tottenham solution being the most plausible, but the Arsenal bench could also become free, as [Mikel] Arteta has missed all the Gunners’ season goals.”

 

Carlo’s claim that Maurizio could return to England comes in spite of reports the veteran coach is against the idea of resuming his career abroad.

 

The former Napoli leader is reportedly concerned about upping sticks during the COVID-19 pandemic in case he is unable to return to his homeland.

 

He enjoyed success during his sole campaign in charge of Chelsea, guiding the Blues to UEFA Europa League glory with a 4-1 win over Arsenal in Baku.

 

If Sarri is indeed open to managing the Gunners, he’ll no doubt be keeping tabs on developments at the club over the coming weeks.

Video Highlights, Full Match Analysis: Chelsea 0 – 1 Arsenal

Published

on

Emile Smith Rowe denied Chelsea the chance to cement their top-four status as he took advantage of Jorginho’s howler to give Arsenal a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues would have all but secured their Champions League qualification with a victory which would have taken them 10 points clear of Liverpool, who have four games left to play, but after making seven changes ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup final, struggled to create clear-cut chances.

Kai Havertz should have put them ahead 10 minutes in when he intercepted Gabriel’s loose pass for Pablo Mari and raced clean through, but then fired over Bernd Leno’s bar with only his compatriot to beat. Moments later Jorginho’s equally poor back-pass was kept out by Kepa Arrizabalaga at full stretch, but Smith Rowe was on hand to bundle home after being teed up by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Chelsea were dominant for the large majority of the remaining 75 minutes without forcing Leno into any uncomfortable saves until the final minute. They did beat him through Pulisic’s close-range header from a corner, which was swiftly denied by a VAR review, before the German produced a stunning stop to tip Kurt Zouma’s header onto the crossbar, which was then rattled by Olivier Giroud’s shot on the rebound.

Player Ratings

Chelsea: Kepa (6), James (6), Azpilicueta (6), Silva (6), Zouma (6), Chilwell (5), Jorginho (4), Gilmour (5), Pulisic (5), Mount (6), Havertz (5).

Subs: Hudson-Odoi (6), Giroud (6), Ziyech (5).

Arsenal: Leno (7), Gabriel (6), Mari (7), Holding (6), Tierney (7), Partey (6), Elneny (8), Saka (5), Odegaard (6), Smith Rowe (7), Aubameyang (5).

Subs: Bellerin (6), Lacazette (5), Chambers (6).

Man of the match: Mohamed Elneny

What the managers said…

Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel told Sky Sports: “We had three days, we are on a good run, we had a good mood. The choices were not so good today from my side for the line-up so that’s on me. We were unlucky, of course. But we did everything today to lose.

“I’m not happy with my line-up. It’s easy to say afterwards. But it was too many changes, I should not have done it like this. It’s something in particular – but I will not tell you!”

 

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta told Sky Sports: “I don’t know how they’re going to try from the outside but from the inside, nothing is broken.

“They’re going to put things on me that I never said, you can see the spirit of the team from the first minute. You can never doubt their efforts and how much they try.”

Match stats

  1. Arsenal completed their first Premier League double over Chelsea since the 2003-04 season, while this was their first league win at Stamford Bridge since October 2011, ending an eight-game winless run there (D2 L6).
  2. Chelsea suffered only their third defeat in 26 matches in all competitions under Thomas Tuchel (W17 D6), with all three defeats coming at Stamford Bridge.
  3. Arsenal have won three consecutive away Premier League matches without conceding for the first time since May 2013 under Arsène Wenger.
  4. Arsenal have had a different player aged younger than 21 score in each of their last three Premier League matches against Chelsea – Gabriel Martinelli in January 2020, Bukayo Saka in December 2020 and Emile Smith Rowe tonight.

What’s next?

Chelsea are off to Wembley in the FA Cup final on Saturday, where they will face Leicester City; Kick-off at 5.15pm.

Arsenal’s penultimate game of the season is also in London, with a trip to Crystal Palace next Wednesday night; Kick-off at 7pm.
