How the hell you have worked that out when Emery went 22 games unbeaten within his first few months at the club and then got us to the EL final, when Pep's Cone Man had us rolled over by a bunch of stiffs who couldn't win an away game in Europe if their lives depended on it......markyp wrote: ↑Sun Mar 08, 2020 2:13 pmBut emery came to us with a lot of experience and a certain amount of pedigree yet peps cone man is more than matching what he did so far ,so either take it as Emery really was truly shit and so is arteta or Emery did well with a load of crap and arteta with zero experience is working wonders?? You cant defend emery then slate arteta ,for a bloke who's never managed hes doing well in a very high pressure jobaugie wrote: ↑Sun Mar 08, 2020 2:02 pmJock Gooner wrote: ↑Sun Mar 08, 2020 12:33 pmSteveO 35 wrote: ↑Sun Mar 08, 2020 11:54 amI'm not belittling him - I just can't believe that there are people who wrote off an entire 22 match unbeaten run as being 'lucky' and 'unconvincing' and yet everyone I spoke to yesterday (even the most ardent gooner) says we were crap and lucky to win.

The millionth dig at Arteta.
Mate, I can’t get my head around the logic of how you can be so rational in your assessment and understanding of the troubles emery faced in his 18 months yet, in contrast, constantly belittle and ridicule Arteta for suffering from the same struggles?
Just can't accept the double standards of judgement.
I don't remember anyone on here writing off the entire 22 game run as lucky. There were plenty of shit games along the way and there were some that were pretty good. There was no real pattern of play or system that evolved during Emery's reign and that's just that.
Not that I'm particularly bothered about Arteta, but for your own information, your posts certainly sound like somebody belittling Arteta. As for double standards, I'm just not getting that from the posts I've read.....I can see some people daring to hope but not much beyond that.
100% it was said on here during the week Jock - as I have said many times, arteta and any other manager we appoint will struggle as long as we have players of the mentality of these *word censored*, but I object to arteta being defended for that reason whilst emery was supposed to work magic with those same players
Honestly I give up
