Mikel Arteta

Lolllllll! Way over the top :arteta:

Yes, Ivan Gazidis dilly-dallying has convinced City to make Arteta their manager. I believe it wholeheartedly.


#925

I can’t believe a few weeks ago that Arteta was just one of four of Guardiola’s coaches at Man City, and now it’s as if he has been transformed into the hottest managerial property in Europe.

I don’t know who his PR agent is, but I suggest Jeremy Corbyn might want to get on the phone and hire him for his next election campaign.

Well said.

Appointing Lego Hair would have been embarrassing. City, United and all the rest would have been in stiches at us. No experience and he’s not even an Arsenal legend anyway.

Jaysus…

BOLLOCKS HE ISN’T


#928

Is he fuck…

He was a good player and I liked him but not in the same league as Bergkamp, Henry, Vieira, Adams, and all those who truly are Legends.

Here are some real Arsenal legends:

Have a read. You might learn something about our club…

This link says nothing about Atletico Madrid.

Saying Arteta was a club legend . It’s hilarious.
Average player made to look good by the rest of the team .
Club legend, that insults all the greats before him.

When I think of Arteta all I remember was a player who epitomised what was wrong with our club.

He was a panic buy replacement for Cesc who was a true world class player and captain, who was fed up here.
Arteta was light weight, often injured and often ineffective against top sides that were physically stronger.

There’s no doubt he was a decent player but was a definite down grade on what we had.

As for being a legend?
if he was, then it just shows how poor that team was.

Bergkamp, Henry, Pires, Adams, Wright, Vieira etc were legends.
Compared to what they achieved, Arteta isn’t fit to lace the boots of the person who laced their boots.

And if Arteta is a club legend is Podolski? Walcott? Mertesacker? Nasri? Hleb? Nasri was a better player and had that season where he could of player of the year. Podolski and Walcott got lots of goals and assists.

What about Song? He was a solid reliable DM for a good few seasons too and had that super assist season.

When you start calling Arteta a club legend you will struggle to justify him above his Arsenal peers.
