I mentioned my concern going into the last two matches in respect of the impact of playing a CL and PL match, following a heavy international schedule. I believed we needed to rotate and that has proved to be true, with a very tired display against Boro.

I felt we should have started Xhaka in the CL match, as he was suspended for 3 PL matches. I also believe we should have played Gibbs yesterday, as Monreal's lack of pace has been even more obvious this season. I also felt that Gabrie should have played one of the two matches and yesterday there were signs that Mustafi was starting to suffer from fatigue.

Yesterday, it was obvious that Boro would defend deep, with two banks of players close together and space would be difficult to find. Hence, I would have started Ox instead of Theo who tends to suffer when there isn't space to get in behind. In addition Iwobi looked fatigued having played for Nigeria.

It was time to start Perez and possible play Sanchez on the left, with Perez up top. We lacked creativity from either of the DM players, but in the absence of Xhaka, Santi and Ramsey, there was little option. Bellerin looked fatigued as well and possibly Debuchy could have played in the CL and Bellerin yesterday.

Reports emerging that Ozil and Sanchez want £250,000 per week. Do the club agree to these demands? Don't forget that Wenger has always commanded the highest salary from Arsenal, so it means paying him slightly more to extend his deal. I was really impressed with Wenger's interview on Sky with Thierry Henry. He came across really well.

Ozil has signed a new deal.

Ozil and Sanchez are too very special players and if were we to lose either of them we should struggle to attract a player of similar or better calibre to replace them. I say give them whatever they want.

We've got two chioces with both Ozil and Sanchez,
A see them in Arsenal shirts
B increase the clubs bank balance by saving on wages and receiving big fees for them.
I wonder how many fans will choose B, I'm sure there are some somewhere:-)

Any ideas why Santi Cazorla hasn't been offered a new deal. He is 31 and has at least a couple of seasons left in him.

My stance on Wenger has not changed

I hope and pray this his last season

Time for change.

Malaga I understand your reasons behind that. But surely if the team continue how was have been you'll change your mind. I think we've looked brilliant to say the least.

Malaga, we look so different this year with the new signings which has reinvigorated the fans. I believe that if this continues throughout the season, Wenger deserves a new deal, which hopefully he will sign. Other than Guardiola and Simeone, I can't think of a manager who I would want and is capable of replacing him.

If we win the League then yes sign him for another 2 years if not thanks for the great service get Simone in.

I agree we've looked better, for the last 2 games. Before the Chelsea performance we can't say we played well at all this year. Dismantled by Liverpool, toothless against Leicester. If we keep this form up of course I'll be delighted. But I can't help but feel we have another 4 or 5 goal humiliation on the horizon. We're just too inconsistent and have been ever since 2004.

Well said wally. Your luck will runout soon and the points will be dropped and the Wenger out fans will become fickle once again.

Yes Dags luck, like when Kolarov put the ball in his own net or when a clearance deflected off of Zabaleta right into the path of Son who passed to Alli, that kind of luck mate.

That Ellis boy is a proper girls blouse. 😂😂.

Lol Red Dog,

Selective memories some people mate.

Not long ago we were linked with Reece Oxford. Heaps of talent and promise, and a gooner to boot (not that that in itself is enough - were it so, Dags would be starting week in week out) . Any news here?


{Ed041's Note - I'm sure he signed a new contract in the summer, I may be wrong though.

Dags signed a new contract? Why agreed to that deal with the quality of his jokes I would have prefer to pay him off and let him join a club more his level ( Barnet maybe )

Agree2 Disagree0

03 Oct 2016 21:52:53
Lol, thanks boys :-)

03 Oct 2016 22:20:35
Barnet is still probably a bit above his level but thought he should stay in north London.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Oct 2016 18:35:56
If Barnet is to higher standed there's always Spurs I guess :-)

Looks like Olly will be starting today, pleased about that as dispite his weaknesses he's head and shoulders our best option up top and means Sanchez will be back in his best position.
Imo if it happens it's the right decision.

{Ed025's Note - i really fancy arsenal today G62..

But he knows how to beat Spurs, no different to anyone else really!

You just said Kane will win golden boot.

He's out for 10 weeks so more chance of him wearing wellington boots while he's doing his gardening mate.

Never mind, you still have Vincent "no goals" Janssen up front.

Right lads, here goes - I'm on the scrounge. You might not know that my mother-in-law passed away in June due to complications with Alzheimers so my wife and 5 other family members are doing a sponsored walk this Saturday to raise money for Alzheimer Scotland. The charity asks that each participant tries to raise £100 and I'm hoping you guys can help out. Any money collected will be shared equally between all 6 of them to help them reach their target.
If you can afford to donate anything, no matter how small, click HERE or cut and paste the following URL to go to the donate page I've set up.

All donations are really appreciated and the page will be open until the end of the month. I'll try not to be a pest bumping it on the sites. :=D

Just a tenner, but hope it helps.

Good luck with the walk mate.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks very much Dags, that's really appreciated mate.}

Is there a number people can text to donate Ed?
I personally find this an easy way of giving.

{Ed007's Note - Sorry mate - it took me all my time to set that page up lol.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Sep 2016 00:25:56
Are you literally keeping this open until the 30th? That'll be pay day and i'd love to put a bit in!

{Ed007's Note - The charity says the money has to be in 4 weeks after the event (this Saturday) and the site seems to have set the deadline to then so yes mate it'll be open for a few weeks yet. I'll put the odd reminder up but I don't want to be a pest or seem like I'm hassling folk to donate. And thank you mate, it's appreciated.}

Ed is it true Carlos Bacca rejected a West Ham move because he wanted to join us, and if so were we ever interested? Much thanks.

{Ed001's Note - he did want to go somewhere else, but I don't believe it was particularly Arsenal, more a Champions League team.}

Believable1 Unbelievable1

10 Sep 2016 08:23:01
Okay thanks ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2016 15:16:05
Ed with the subtle insult. Well played.

{Ed001's Note - wasn't meant like that mate. I meant he wasn't saying he wanted to go to Arsenal in particular, he just wasn't keen on the Hammers because he wanted a CL team.}

Hey Ed,

Thanks for putting up with us over the transfer window.

I had a question about Morata: Were Arsenal ever interested? and do you see him staying put at Madrid and becoming their featured striker?

Thanks a mill,

{Ed002's Note - There was interest from Chelsea, Arsenal and from Dortmund - who Real Madrid hoped erre open to a deal involving Aubameyang.}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

09 Sep 2016 16:40:06
Thanks Ed,

Was really hoping we would be willing to pay over the odds for him, I think he'll be a special player.

Looks like that ship has sailed, huh?

{Ed002's Note - It was nothing to do with the price. Real Madrid are not discussing Morata leaving and will look to hang on to him - whilst other forwards at the club will be allowed to move on. I would not expect him to join Arsenal - and even a move to Chelsea would be very unlikely now.}

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Sep 2016 05:47:55
Ah, I see.

Do you think that their impending transfer ban will alter those plans?

Sorry for all the questions, I appreciate the Intel.

I always thought Benzema would suit our style of play perfectly, but with all his off the field issues and little to no resale value, I doubt Wenger would move for him now.

{Ed002's Note - Real MAdrid cannot buy replacements. Morata was never going to join Arsenal.}
