    The squad of arsenal did not look much better than the 10th place in EPL. So without finding right talented players you can't go any further. It's not going to be solved with a new trainer. The Management of arsenal is much more in charge of the actual misery.

    David Luiz would be excellent in midfield for arsenal as a holding centre with a runner to his left / right. He can intercept and pass. He isn't a centre back.

    Klopp, Mourinho, Guardiola, and Rafa, all in the same league. That would be amazing. As a Liverpool fan, it'd break my heart, but a man of Rafa's quality MUST be managing a big club. Arsenal is a big club that's fallen on hard times. Rafa is the man to turn their fortunes around. YNWA

    With the exception of selling Alonso & signing one or two absolute turkeys (Josemi & Kromkamp, remember them.....me neither!), you have to say Benitez is a fantastic manager & a brilliant tactician. His analysis of football is second to none. I’d welcome him at Arsenal all day long! That Newcastle team, on paper, had absolutely no right to stay up in the Premiership last season. I was saying they were a goner (and so were many others) before the season started. However, they were comfortably away from the relegation zone & it was all down to Benitez. All that talk of Guardiola & Klopp being the best managers last season, Benitez’s achievement definitely outweighed theirs. Imagine what he could have done had Ashley supported him? Benitez spent virtually nothing there!

    yeah well, Luiz is trash and yesterday vs City: Kolasinac was horrible, at least he could have tried to put his head into the first goal shot by De Bruyne, while you can see he reacted otherwise, like he was afraid, he instinctively dodged the ball, just like an amateur standing in the goal facing a shot a bit too hard. Then again, 2nd goal, he could have anticipated and intercepted the pass from De Bruyne to Sterling, but he was like drunk. Pepe was better. But even during Emery times, no-one questioned Arsenal's ability to attack, but rather not to concede. From a Liverpool fan.

    This idiot could not win the league with Liverpool with Torres and Gerrard and Xavi. He is a good manager not a great manager. The champions league and Fa Cup flatter his reputation but the only reason Liverpool Won those 2 trophies was Gerrard. If he is that good then what the hell is he doing in China. He got fired from Real Madrid in 6 months. And then this moron goes on tv and says, “it was too much pressure “ what a bitch.

    Noobs. They dont get it at all. Problem is that Ozil and Xhaka in the centre of team. Both useless, lazy, not able to pass propertly, not able to win 1on1, not sprinting ever, they make team slow and lazy, thats the problem. Arsenal have just lack of movement. Other players are ok, not great, but ok.
