    So true. Well researched, and said.

    Your articles become cherrypicking at it’s best. You absolutely leave out important factors and just look at statistics that back your hypothesis. I absolutely agree with you, that Wenger should have stayed. But if Emery damages the players with bad coaching, confusing instructions and questionable tactics, there will be an aftermath. But you leave hos bad influence on the squad completely out of your equation. You are just looking at the effects of this, but not what caused this downfall. And you even go further by postulating that the high amount of spending did not help a bit either. Sorry, but that is just wrong. If wen spend money and have a coach like Emery, nothing will get better. And Arteta is trying to pick up the pieces Emery left mid season. Like in every serious study, just wait with your conclusions until we have a big enough testing period to read something in the data. You always complain about people who jump to conclusions about a player’s performance too quick, but in case of the impact of spending or a managerial change you do exactly the same thing. Arteta will bring Arsenal back to glory, though we had three managers in a short time and though we spent a lot of money.

      The problem is ghost, that you are just taking one article and not looking at the evidence presented in other articles.

    You have missed put a 3rd new tactic.

    That is replacing a single manager who had control pover everything to a hierarchy of many administrators with many different people each in charge of a separate aspect seemingly working independently and clearly without much coordination.

    Like all good public enterprises we find ourselves with a top heavy bureaucracy, all, no doubt on substantial salaries, all doing their own thing without much by way of achievement.

    One large and competent Wenger has been replaced by a myriad of little incompetent Wengers and we continue to dive down the table serving up complete rubbish for the paying fans.

    That is called progress?

    It is not our worst season. It is the worst season given to us by bias and wrong decisions including TV and VAR. It is a probable situation for legal recourse for the very wrong use of guest officiating in Stockley Park.

    I read your articles since years, as they once were positive, fresh air amidst all the negative “journalism” and blogposts. But since quite some time you sound like the grinch yourself. You mourn about the same three things over and over and over again and you sound like you absolutely have the high ground with everything you write. Now that is your right, as this is your blog, but it really annoying already. Just because you repeat the same things over and over again does not mean, that they are more true. I agree that Wenger should have stayed, but Emery completely fucked things up. And just comparing our success in a certain season with the amount we spent doesn’t point to anything at all. Because there are tons of factors who make a season successfull, yet you try to find a correlation between the amount Arsenal spent and how it influenced our success. So yes, I read all your articles, and no, it doesn’t make your statement any more true.

      Absolutely agree with your final sentence. I read the Mail, and hopefully that doesn’t make their stuff true either.

      Theghost – reading a variety of publications is part of the task of running Untold. I have however asked our accountant if I can claim the subsequent visits to the psychiatrist on expenses.

    We too read a lot of stupid comments on this site by people who may lay claim that they are smarter than those who run the club , but they always fail to validate their claim by not telling us which Fortune 500 company they run !

    I’m always looking to learn on how effectively I can run my life and my pactice , but so far have yet got any constructive advice . Why is that ? Am I missing something ? Am I not reading between the lines ?

    Then again I give thanks that these fools will never be able to take over and run our club . I have also before wondered on these pages , the cost of flying silly banners from airplanes . Would not that money be better spent if donated to the club to buy new players ?

    This was sent to me by a regular reader of this blog , so am posting it here.

    ‘ God and the Devil were having an argument and Devil proposed a football game between heaven and hell to resolve the dispute.

    God, in his eternal goodness, pointed out that it would not be a fair match because all the ‘good’ players go to heaven.

    The Devil smiled, replying: “Yes, but we have got all the referees!”.’

    And that my friends , is why the Arsenal wil always have an uphill battle in our tilt in our efforts to win the EPL !

    😂 Of course you need to read all the papers, I was just kidding. 😉 I bet because of the severity of the psychological damage one gets from reading the Mail, it should be no problem to claim these visits on expenses. 😊

      It’s the anti-rabies jabs that are the most costly
