Well, I hope Chelsea players and management are saying they were the better team on May 15th as Kasper lifts the trophy. End of the day you can be the better team, but if you don't take your chances it's irrelevant.

Can't see arteta being there next season, who's available that they could get? Could do worse than Potter, but obviously not flash enough for an Arsenal living in the past. 

They need a safe pair of hands. Rafa Benitez maybe?

More than just a safe pair of hands. They need a full revamp of their squad. No point chopping and changing managers who partly do this and basically need to start again each time.

I found it really distasteful how much he was ridiculed for for slightly mispronouncing words when he wasn't speaking his first language. I can tell you one thing for certain and that's that he spoke much better English than I can another language.

I think the common British public (a good chunk) seem to enjoy laughing at other people trying to speak english. However, go anywhere abroad and there are said British who are trying to communicate using their slowest, most precise english in a foreign country. Not many make an effort to at least learn the basics.

 

The only other country I have experienced some arrogance in has been France (or Paris, which is probably different to the rest of France). Where even when speaking french, they would refuse to speak any english (this was a policeman as well).

 

A lot of foreign players/managers/general public when they come over here (or any country) try their best to learn the language so they can be accepted. However, no one will speak it perfectly within days/weeks (some will always have an accent). Someone like Pep knows about 5 or 6 languages to a standard where he can communicate well.

Next season is massive for Arsenal. No European football to worry about and I honestly think a failure to make the top four could see them not get there again for quite some while. Overall they are in decline and another failed manager and poor season and they are done for, especially with the growth and improvements being made by some other clubs such as West Ham, Everton and Leeds and that’s not forgetting ourselves. The top 8 is no guarantee now for teams like Spurs and Arsenal.

Get it absolutely right up you Paul Scholes, with all your "obviously United are better" stuff pre match.  

 

 

 

Ah, we are in this thread now, are we?

 

Well, I still think what I posted in the other thread (above)    :P

Emery is a great tactician he really is

I think his lack of success at Arsenal says more about them than it does him

Think the problem is that he was never the right fit for Arsenal. They wouldn't stand for this style of play. Even Leicester fans get arsenal arsenal we defend.

He's the EL specialist. Got already 3 under his belt, he knows what's he doing.

The disrespect shown to Villareal before the game was staggering, as if they'd won their place in this final in a raffle or something.

 

I hope the pundits acknowledge what a great job Villareal have done that half.

Ian Darke claiming its been a 'smash and grab' on the commentary, was he watching a different game?

 

United had more of the ball but created next to nothing.

It's astonishing how ex players who have played the game at the very top level read it so poorly. Scholes talking out of his arse in punditry 

Doesn’t surprise me outside the top teams in the PL they actually don’t have much of an idea
