One bad night and Arsenal fans already calling for Arteta to go

Fickle Arsenal fans have turned on Mikel Arteta after just one bad night.

Well, that did not take long, did it? Some Arsenal fans have already taken to Twitter calling for Arteta’s head.

Yes, it was a bad night but in the big scheme of things there has still been progress under the Spaniard but that seems to make no difference to some so called Gooners.

The team that was selected was very strong and they should have won this game comfortably but as is always the case in football, the unexpected happens.

Leno has been so good recently but he did not do well at the end and who would have thought that Aubameyang would miss from six yards out?

It is embarrassing for fans to be turning on the manager now, did they turn against him on Sunday against Everton? When Arsenal beat Man Utd? When they beat Olympiacos in Greece? When they drew at Chelsea? of course they did not.

Anyway, this is some of what is spreading on twitter.

    Bloody ridiculous.

  2. RSH says:

    yeah but the most they have are 50 likes. Some only have 4. This is not “spreading on twitter”, and the overwhelming opinion on Arteta is very positive.

  3. gunner4heart says:

    No manager can achieve anything with this team. We can’t win PL with xhaka, luiz, mustafi, ozil, this bellerin, in our first team. Give arteta time at least 2 summer window.

  4. Gizzle says:

    Arteta has been good .Although his selection leaves a lot to be desired sometimes.Xhaka,Luiz,Socrates,Bellerin.Lacazette and Ozil need to go

    1. Mike says:

      Serious, he can only select the players that are fit to play, you make it sound as if he has 2 or 3 options for each position

  5. John Legend says:

    Arteta going nowhere!
    I believe he will do well.
    It’s a bad Thursday night at the office.

  6. Rebo Ehwan says:

    Thrash! Arteta is on track. One important lesson learnt yesterday which is good for the future of the club – NO SLOW STARTS FROM NOW ON.

  7. Grandad says:

    I don’t know the age of these idiots who call themselves fans but I certainly know ignorance when I see it.

    1. Mike says:

      Fully agree with you on that one Grandad

    2. mickey says:

      Couldn’t agree with you more. These are all fake fans.

  8. Dathballz says:

    Some people are just stupid .this was only his second euro game against a very very defensive team .we will learn …mikel in ..

    1. Mike says:

      Yes in Arteta we trust

  9. SueP says:

    It’s hard to not use words such as morons.
    Aren’t we all disappointed by what happened last night but is that Arteta Out banner In the photo for real?

    1. Admin Martin says:

      No, it is not SueP, it was originally a Wenger one and has since been adapted as a meme to both Emnery and now Arteta.

      1. SueP says:

        Silly me🤦🏻

    Auba, we rely on him too heavily, he is a player to be relied on but he should not have the sole burden, it isn’t fair.

    People should try to remember these twitter fans so when they keep popping up and adding another dozen fans to their thread, you know to just leave them to it, let them entertain the trolls. Most of it is likely themselves trying to make it into, news pieces, or failed sarcasm, though it will reach a point that it will grow. They aren’t fans of this club, they’re fans of mouthing off on twitter.

    “Slow starts” mentioned above.

    As in all things Arsenal I have a theory on this.

    Have you seen our stadium at kick off ?

    Empty seats in most areas which may or may not fill 15 minutes in.

    Ditto each side of half time, and at the final whistle.

    The East stand at all levels is particularly poor in this respect.

    Players in the tunnel have clear vision of the “ white cannon “ empty seats in the East when waiting to come – additional motivation, I think not.

    In the majority of home games the most noise in the stadium is generated by the guy on the tannoy !

    I have , probably wasted my time, written to our fans rep’ via the club regarding initiatives to prove the situation which I have to say really bugs me game after game.

    O. K. we seem to attract more than our fair share of “day trippers” and “corporates” , and I appreciate the changing face of attending sporting events this day and age (and social behaviour in general) but as a club we seem to suffer particularly badly in this respect – and in my view detrimentally performance wise.

    O. K. first and foremost, most would acknowledge the squad is totally lacking and this will be addressed – however, can the same be said of our home support ?

    Waffle, waste of time – maybe but I truly believe … valid.

    I am braced for abuse to follow.

      I think you are quite right about the terrible lack of atmosphere. It was so noticeable especially when you hear the songs and chants of our opposition giving support to their team. Can’t call it the Highbury library anymore and I can’t think of anything that rhymes with Emirates The only time I recall the crowd getting behind the team was when Auba scored. That lasted all of 2 minutes
      Having the team cheering you on must surely go a long way in lifting the players

    The rancid stench of that sense of entitlement shown by a small portion of fake “fans” is overpowering. It was a huge set back last night and unexpected but in football , as in life, huge disappointments sometimes happen. It is a part of the game and many snowflakes fans, esp of a young age have grown up in life with this awful and self harming sense of entitlement and cannot stand a dose of pain. Poor little darlings!” UGH.”

    My advice, as a person not far from my 70’s, is to grow up, grow a pair and toughen yourselves up. Crying to Mummy – for “Mummy” read Twitter, this site and all social media -will only stop you becoming proper adults, even though SOME of you are well into adult age already.

    YES WE LOST, SO GET OVER IT AND GET READY FOR THE NEXT GAME. LIFE GOES ON, SO GET ON WITH IT AND BE THANKFUL YOU DO NOT HAVE REAL PROBLEMS, LIKE CANCER, DREAD DISEASE, FAMINE AND WAR IN YOUR COUNTRY. If you DO suffer from those dread things, my heart REALLY GOES OUT TO YOU. But not otherwise!

    IF YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE EYESIGHT , HEARING, LEGS ON WHICH TO WALK AND TIME AVAILABLE TO SPEND ON SOCIAL MEDIA COMPLAINING , THEN YOU REALLY HAVE LITTLE IN LIFE TO COMPLAIN ABOUT.

    REALITY!!!

    How many games in the past week and a half ? Exactly
    So out of Europe not a bad thing as at least it’s less games and fresher players so we can push on the league and get up the league

    These pathetic so called fans calling for Arteta to go are just that….pathetic. How about these so called fans realising that sometimes it is the players that have to be taken to account. There are 3 or 4 who shouldn’t be in the side, that is the only thing I can criticise Arteta for, he is playing players who are not contributing when there are young players raring to go and should be given their chance for the rest of the season.
