As Muzz says, there needed to be an option between 3 and 4 e.g Neither a moderate success or a fucking disaster 8)

But its Friday and nearly Christmas so I voted for 3 :barscarf:

Although even this isnt really an improvement on Emery in my opinion. And that's what I expect, no improvement. Overall Arteta will have absolutely no impact whatsoever! You read it here first! :D :roll:

He is not a fucking magician as far as I know and so it wont necessarily be his fault but he is the wrong man at the wrong time. And if he does fail I will have no sympathy with him at all because he should have kept well away from the shambles he is walking into.

Too many people let their ambition cloud their judgement.

Nice and succinctly put RA and I totally agree. Hope we are proved wrong but I'm not holding my breath.

Beyond stupid ! we will be plunged into a relegation battle within the next 2 weeks! Think this is possibly as bad as I've seen us ever and that's saying something considering how poor the end of the Terry Neil era was,striking similarities in fact to now where we have overpaid primadonnas not really giving AF. We are doomed

Tbh I have a sneaking suspicion Arteta might become our new GG. :shock:

GG was not fancied when he arrived but he arrived with a plan and cleared out the overpaid deadwood. Hopefully Arteta can even be half as successful as GG. 8)

And the next person that uses the term "Tets" gets a week ban for being a cùnt. It's in the rules. Somewhere. :D

He is a gutless appointment from a gutless club. A man who epitomises the second half of the Wenger era, a show pony with no track record of success. And anyone who dares to invoke George Graham as an example of an unexpected success in management should wash their mouths out. They are chalk and cheese. George was a winner as a player, and despite his languid demeanour he was always a tough competitor. He then cut his teeth in management at Millwall, taking on a tough apprenticeship in a leading role rather than getting splinters as a nodding nellie next to the manager of a mega-rich club who aren't exactly convincing defensively these days.
