Ange's stubborness with regards to his achilles heel in Jedinak, his AC winning captain, may bring him down.

It's very dangerous to be boo'd off at HT vs Arsenal. If we finish the season like this, there won't be much enthusiasm for next year.

I think Ange is simply up against a higher level of opposition managers in this league.
Called this when we appointed him. He cam be the best bloke in the world and want to play good football but the PL is a different level to anywhere else he has managed before.

He is being found out at the moment in my opinion. I hope he recognises this and changes as I'd love him to be a success but this won't work if he doesn't.

Arteta looked that way when he started at Arsenal. It was always going to be difficult at times. We're actually playing well. Right now, we have an obvious flaw that he refuses to fix. That's concerning in a big way, but our football is fine overall.

Number 1 priority this summer has to be a specialist set piece coach. It's ridiculous that almost every big team has one and we're relying on Mason/Jedinak.

Sorry but same issues week in week out , utterly pathetic . Corners we allow Vicario to be blocked and we don’t mark up . 2 weeks to prepare and we turn up and make the same mistakes . Coaches need replacing in the summer at minimum .

Starting to lose faith if being honest, really bought into the hype at the start. When you think about it, he was managing Yokohama in the J league in until 3 years ago at 55. Is there a reason for that? 🤔

I've lost the enthusiasm already.

Every time we concede a corner we look like conceding.

Every time a team comes forward on a counter attack against us we look like conceding.

But that's how we play mate.

I love Ange, he is the answer. But the lack of adjustment on set pieces is really concerning. Two weeks to prepare for Arsenal’s only tactic on set pieces and we’ve done nothing. It’s unforgivable and hopefully the media press him on reasons why he won’t change after the match.

Next season is where the judgment happens. If we continue this next year, continue with the exact same issues, continue to get found out game after game then I don’t think he’ll survive

Playing a two man midfield is fine is they are both top quality.

But we don’t have two top class midfielders so he needs to play three.

Another battering at home against arsenal hmm not sure he is the answer when you can't even sort out defending corners knowing it is your goalkeepers main weakness and playing Davies christ have we no.kids coming through the academy at all? He can't talk his way out easily if this turns really heavy like 5-0 plus.

This is the most concerning aspect to me - we have been embarrassed too many times this season. Well coached teams generally do not get embarrassed. It's one thing to drop points - that happens. But, we have been flat out embarrassed in our performances a number of times this season.
