    I feel he is doing a great job. Indeed this season Willian has not been able to show his true abilities, but I believe in the next season he will greatly contribute to Arsenal FC.

    Every time Arsenal played Chelsea I used to admire his skills. I never even dreamed of having him in our team. Seems a bit difficult to have such a dramatic dip in form. His salary is also very nice for the job he is not doing. Nobody here condones racism or personal/family threats, all we care about is our players playing well. So play better, dumbass!

    I would like willian to comment on football. The only thing I see being done well at Arsenal is the social media. The football has been abysmal. Yes there is no room for any of this nonsense. But it seems like Arsenal is spending a lot of time and effort on practice videos, player profiles and all that other stuff when the football is going from bad to worse.

    Just because this is Arsenal people think they will not be able to win. Think about Barcelona are they winning no I believe. Think about Liverpool are they in their best form helll noo...!! So why do we bombard with negetive thoughts that Arsenal will not win. Arsenal are in a transition period which Liverpool Mancity were also in couple of years back. I am an arsenal fan since 2002. Have seen many ups and down. That does not change me cheering for Arsenal anytime anybday. Arsenal will win they have to they need to. For the recored Arsenal the only team who went an entire season undefeated. No other big clubs could not do but Arsenal has done.

    Willian may be a top bloke, but is football this season has been crap. No point in hiding from the truth, why does Arteta pick him? We should have Martinelli in side instead, or Pepe, even an out of Form Aubameyang. They are all much, much better than Willian.

    I wasn’t at all disappointed with Willian’s signing. I like him a lot. Although he was extremely poor and I was SORT OF ready to move on from him, BUT.......the ABUSE he got from this TOXIC FANBASE who only back the “FASHIONABLE” players (Xhaka, Holding, Bellerin, Lacazette, Luiz, Have been COCKING UP FOR YEARS. Yet Willian is the scapegoat. NOT FOR ME)...... Has driven me to support him. I WELCOME HIM at Arsenal and go and put MUD on the faces of these idiots

    How stupid do you have to be to abuse a player for playing badly by threatening their family? I've also been quite disappointed at numerous points this season by Willian's performances on the pitch, but it's so weird for a person to have a personal hatred for the player. I would only ever criticise their professional performance as a sportsman. There is a very clear line being crossed.

    Never mind Willian, you'll surely come good mate... even tho this club has given us endless pain (and occasionally joy) this season, I assure you that all will be forgiven if we win the UEL, coz it won't just be our first modern European Silverware but will also take us to the UCL next year. And I don't think it's too much to ask given the fact that our path to the UEL Finals is a very winnable won and we have the capability as well as the resources to bring the trophy home. COYG!

    We should all fight against racism and online abuse. if a player plays bad we can provide constructive criticism, I think they already know when the have played bad. There is no reason to be threatening them and their family or saying hateful words. if you are a human being and a true football fan you would never do that.

    When is enough for Arteta? - Destroy Özil career. Nketiah Willock and Bologun is getting rid while Good player like Torreira and Guendouzi is long gone. - Worst team performance in 50 years - Auba got atleast top3 goal scorer in EPL every year since he came, destroy him buy bring him back to chase the ball and help left back. - Arteta has worst record than F.Lampard but he still has job. - No proven records. Only assistant manager. - Has done tiny good thing to Arsenal compare to those legends Ljungberg, Vieira, Henry and etc. - How Edu instead of Marc Overmars. - He think Arsenal is just one step for him to move to Barcelona, Madrid or even Spanish international, but the question is, Is there any La Liga team right now want this Arteta.

    i cannot understand 2 things about this social media abuse. Firstly: what these single celled creatures think they are achieving., do they think insulting/threatening/abusive behaviour will make a player be better? News flash-it won't. Secondly social media companies and tracking these buffoons: It is easy. I ran gaming servers for years. Everyone who joined those servers instantly had their I.P. and their MAC address logged. Their game play was monitored by the server taking screen shots of what they could see on their screens every 30 seconds. Hackers got banned almost instantly. Repeat offenders could change their onscreen names, spoof mac and IP and still be tracked back to their original account. If they were also dumb enough to join our game chat forums i now had a MAC, IP and email address....That was enough for me to send them a picture of their front door from google earth! So for these tech companies to say it's hard is total rubbish! Everyone needs to be held accountable. That includes the tech firms. Rant over LOL
