But, but Arteta is the third best manager in the league and has solved all of Arsenal’s problems?! 

I just don’t understand these clubs. Arsenal and Man U are two huge clubs and they both appoint managers who have done fook all in a decent league.

Imagine live streaming yourself breaking lockdown rules.

 

To be expected of grown men decking themselves out in Arsenal gear though. They all need to grow up. Specifically that lad at the front right, King of the tossers he is.

Ollie Watkins cost Villa £30 million from the championship, some clubs laughed but I think they can say at least there getting there money's worth now. On Arsenal it's funny Arteta has been getting a lot praise of late... some of it I thought was a little premature seeing as before today Arsenal were only 10th after today's result I think many will start to think they may have been thinking ahead.

ATV is probably a registered company they make money from. So it’s technically work and not bound by the same rules.

Apparently Liverpool and Manure have just re-drafted ‘Project Big Picture’ to give it some credibility.  Arsenal have been relegated to the ‘make weights’ group and ‘Big 6’ is now reduced to the ‘Big 5’.

Let's be honest, half of these kinds of results don't happen if there's a crowd in. They're just not a true reflection of how these sides would actually perform in usual circumstances. 

You might be proven correct, but there's actually no way of being sure.

DT?

 

Bellend of a man, always giving it the big I am too. Started on some Arsenal lad a couple of years ago and got a beating, then went to the police about itlol

This Villa team are not comfortably beating Liverpool and Arsenal with fans there. Remember the last game they played with fans they were hammered 4-0 by us (when we were in shocking form). 

 

Not singling Villa out necessarily, we're not holding out at 2-1 with a sold out Elland Road last week either in my opinion.

The people laughing at Arteta should probably keep in mind that he's in his first full season in management. For contrast, Rodgers has been in management for 12 years and equally lost loads of his first games. 

 

At Reading in his second job he lasted six months before getting sacked. 

 

Managers go through hardship, it's a lot to learn and Arteta is in at the deep end at one of the most expectant clubs in world football. 

 

It's not his fault there's lots of media hype about him. It's not like he's arrogant or up himself, he's never told anyone he's a special one or inflated his own ego. He was a grafter as a player and by all accounts works hard as a coach. 

 

 

 

True.

 

But you just compared him to Rodgers, who started at Reading.

 

Not Arsenal.

Although I think his post match reaction could have been better after our game and their victory at Old Trafford, there's a lot of truth in that post👍

or maybe it's the referee's not feeling the pressure in games with the crowds and not giving into the home fans. To be honest at Arsenal you wouldn't be able to tell if the fans are there or not.

Can some one please explain how this ‘Big 6’ malarkey works?   Is it based upon ancient history?  Really struggling how the media comes up with this bolloc*s.   

 

Its based on income, sponsorships, revenue, wages paid etc. Arsenal, for example, finished 8th last season but their income and sponsorship deals completely dwarfs ours. There's no comparison.
