We have to start being honest - with the fans, players and footballing world. We weren't good enough on Saturday and were outplayed all over the pitch. We were lucky City showed us too much respect at 2 nil plus were having a bad day at the office in front of goal otherwise it could have been embarrassing.

We were poor and didn't create much. Poorly organised and made crap decisions in a game that were unprofessional and put us under pressure from the start.
Tell it how it is and don't blame the ref or linesman - we were poor and I for one would feel better if the club admitted that. You can build on honesty.
Sort it out Wenger - i'll be the biggest fan you ever lose

Got your picture on my wall, and it reminds me that it's not so bad.

You forgot the ‘P. S. we should be together too’.

3.) 08 Nov 2017 21:15:39
The fans from what I can see are as honest as the days long. It's Wenger who needs to start with the honesty . It was offside sterling dived etc. How are players going to wise up when your manger makes excuse after excuse.

4.) 09 Nov 2017 23:25:11
That’s my point.



30 Sep 2017 16:49:32
Ed, I know Wenger has a two year contract but with Carlo Ancelotti current position - will the club try to get him in place or tie him down to manage next season or will we continue as is with Wenger and miss out on a great opportunity?


{Ed001's Note - Wenger is in charge of his own destiny mate.}

1.) 02 Oct 2017 06:18:24
Wenger will be at the club for at least the nest two seasons. However, I have always admired Ancelotti, although my current flavour of the month is Marco Silva wh appears to be doing a fine job at Watford.

2.) 03 Oct 2017 21:12:26
Eds, laccazette jokes he's trying to convince Greizman to join him at Arsenal this coming summer. Arsenal were never linked with him. Is there any slight interest in the player?

{Ed001's Note - there was a while ago, but, ironically enough, Lacazette was the option instead of him. I don't know of any revived interest, but it is a while until the window.}

3.) 04 Oct 2017 11:26:47
Cheers for the response eds. Lacazette, Griezman and Lemar, French trio up front. Would never happen. How could Arsenal possible make a profit buying those 2 lol.

4.) 04 Oct 2017 20:29:22
If the media are to be believed, I remember us reportedly having an interest in Griezmann when he was at Sociedad, just before he burst onto the National team and became an established world class player.

5.) 04 Oct 2017 21:13:59
If I remember correctly TPG it was the same time Carlos vela was at sociadad and doing fairly well. I'm sure I heard somewhere that we tried to involve vela in the deal as he was on loan at the time .

Offer Sanchez a deal worth 400k per week.

It adds up and is good value as there is no transfer fee.

It perpetuates the issue and more players will run down contracts but we either start winning the league or continue to have players holding all the power

Surely we could give him a deal that doesn't upset the wage structure

Ox for 200k is a joke


1.) 26 Aug 2017 12:22:58
I don't usually care about how much we pay our player but a near 200k for the ox is a joke, yes he's been good but not phenomenal imo especially that Wenger doesn't know exactly where to play him. So imo sell him and replace him with Mahrez or Lemar would be best.
And if we are ready to splash on wage for the ox, get rid of him and give it to Sanchez and make him sign a new deal ends of.

2.) 26 Aug 2017 12:32:55
Sanchez doesn't want our money he wants to challenge for top honours and be at a club with ambition.
When are people going to accept this and realise Sanchez competiveness and ambitious nature isn't for sale.
We can offer him 1 million a week and he still wouldn't be happy with our 4th place ambitions.
Signing good players might have changed his mind but simply offering money isn't going to make hin want to be at Arsenal any longer than he has to be.

3.) 26 Aug 2017 13:40:53
Sanchez doesn't need or want money, he wants medals, he's good enough to be playing for a team with real ambition and I'm sorry to say it but I can't begrudge him for wanting to go elsewhere as let's be honest Wengers lies about wanting to challenge for top honours are so see through its actually a joke now.



14 Aug 2017 23:10:10
It's hard to argue with TH14 - "Henry believes Arsenal missed a trick by ignoring the ball over the top for Lacazette to run on to on too many occasions, instead opting to play out wide and keep possession. "

Lacazette had to make a second and third run a number of times due to our slowness in attack - looking forward to the team realising that it's Lacazette not Giroud up front and we have new options

Will be interesting to see how we react to the two supposed bids

Ox 35m Chelsea
Sanchez 60m City

Typical that we sell these guys but keep Jack, Gibbs, debuchy etc!

Offer Sanchez 300k per week and see if his hearts in it / if not.

Let's get Aguero plus 40m plus Lemar for 60m - get it done, learn lessons and move on

Keep Ox and play him RWB

Go buy Matuidi

Clear some squad players

and call it a day.

No one is bigger than the club.


1.) 15 Aug 2017 07:06:04
It was an interesting watch SY, the amount of times I've seen that exact same thing when Giroud was making the run and it was often Ozil not making that final pass.

The concerning thing was Xhaka clearly seemed to see him and is a fantastic passer but never played the ball.

Hopefully he was listening/ watching. 😁.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 13:05:08
To be fair, I moan at Walcott a lot for not running in behind the defense, but when he does he never gets the ball either. I do worry that if we wanted to play the ball over the top we would have used Walcott in that role more, but its just not our style. As Stoner says though, hopefully the more Lacazette offers himself with these runs the more others will realise.

3.) 15 Aug 2017 23:05:55
yeah need to mix it up more really as it then keeps the opposing defences guessing as to drop off or push up.

4.) 16 Aug 2017 07:23:31
Hi all.

Well laca just joined. i'm sure once he settles in and has a better understanding with our best passers then they will try to play him in behind the opposition defense. On another note, Laca actually excels in tight spaces so even if he doesn't get played in behind he is a fox in the box and in time even our slow build up play will benefit us because unlike giroud who is dominant in the air and depends on crosses to head in the ball, LACA can make late runs in the box or just dribble/ run around a defender to take a snap shot at goal. not to mention his speed on breaks will also benefit us massively as giroud is usually too slow to keep up with our fastest players which usually results in sanchez or other forwards having to break only to turn around and wait for other players to catch up OR take on 3-4 guys on their own.

Hi ED's, thank you for all the info and specially grateful to ed 02 for his podcasts.

Why are expectations so high?
Is it the bar I set?
My arms, I stretch, but I can't reach
A far cry from 04, or it's in my grasp, but as
Soon as I grab, squeeze
I lose my grip like the flyin' trapeze
Into the dark I plummet, now the sky's blackenin'
I know the mark's high, butterflies rip apart my stomach
Knowin' that no matter what eleven I run with
You're going to harp, gripe, and
That's a hard Vicodin to swallow, so I scrap these
As pressure increases from AWOs
I feel the ice cracking, because

I walk on water
But I ain't no Jose
I walk on water
But only when it freezes

It's the curse of the standard, that the invincibles or first decade set
Always in search of the play that I haven't spit yet
Will this step just be another misstep
To tarnish, whatever the legacy, love or respect
I've garnered?
The team has to be perfect, the defence flawless
And it always feels like I'm hittin' the mark
'Til I go sit on the sofa, listen sky and they pick it apart
Like, "This shit is garbage!"
God's given me all this, still I feel no different regardless
Fans look to me as a god, this is retarded
If only they knew, it's a facade and it's exhaustive
And I try not to listen to STEVE R or Merse
But if you bitches are tryin' to strip me of my confidence
Mission accomplished
I'm not God-sent
Graham, Klopp, Fergie
, Pep, and I'm no Special one.

I walk on water
But I ain't no Jose
I walk on water
But only when it freezes

'Cause I'm only human, just like you
Making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
I don't think you should believe in me the way that you do
'Cause I'm terrified to let you down, oh

It's true, I'm a Rubik's, a beautiful mess
At times stuborn, yes, I don't always see things or tell the truth and I jest
A flawed human, I guess
But I'm doin' my best to not ruin your expectations and meet 'em, but first
The last verse, now Granit
He's going too fast, is he going to stay on his feet or f@@@ me over? Giroud as a late sub, I'm out of ideas.
There was a time I had the world by the balls, eating out my palm
Every critic was spazzin' the f@@@ out on
And now I'm gettin' clowned and frowned on
But the only one who's looking down on
Me that matters now's You, the fans
Am I lucky to be around this long?

Was the rap about Wenger?


1.) 19 Nov 2017 17:14:00

Well played - men V boys today




12 Nov 2017 18:36:37
Thoughts on Zaha joining Arsenal? Upgrade on Theo, Iwobi and Welbeck in my opinion in terms of a wide man who can run at defenders and give us width plus pace which we need

Zaha Lacazette and Lemar seems like a speedy front three to scare most defences

A front line like that would enable us to counter attack at speed at Last!

Then let's get a big bad ass CDM to sit in front of the back 3.


1.) 12 Nov 2017 18:55:03
Great plan SY but it just isn't going to happen mate, Zaha is a long shot but possible while Lemar isn't interested and is Arsene going to ditch Xhaka at a huge loss in order to make room plus help fund a DMF player.
It's a bit like expecting the EU to disband and ask Britain if it can become part of the UK in order to keep everyone happy and all together mate.

2.) 12 Nov 2017 20:36:18
I used to think zaha was a bit special but his failure at man u and his inabilty to actually finish something and prduce puts him into the, no thank you box. Replace sanchez, never! Replace theo, never, even theo produces.

3.) 13 Nov 2017 08:25:46
I agree with Steve in that Zaha doesn’t finish enough of his chances but we havea natural finisher in Lacazette and Zaha could provide a lot of assists and create a lot more goals for us because he’s very good at beating fullbacks and actually putting crosses in.

4.) 13 Nov 2017 12:00:09
Tpg, i also meant he doesn't actually create an awful lot either. Flatters to decieve, is the term.

5.) 13 Nov 2017 13:18:47
I would say yes as an impact sub, but as a permanent replacement for Sanchez no way. Besides what would be the point in playing a winger when you are already playing 3 at the back with two wing-backs? The winger would just be occupying space the wing-back should be in, and then also what's the point of a player who beats the full back and crosses a ball, there with never be an Arsenal player on the end of the cross, they would all be waiting outside the box.

6.) 13 Nov 2017 13:58:52
I think if Sanchez and Ozil do leave in January we will simply promote from within for the rest of this season and look to replace permanently in the summer.
Danny Theo Olly Iwobi and Jack will simply come in and see out the season with more starts.
Arsene is even less of a fan of the January window than he is the summer one and let's face it he doesn't exactly get over excited in the summer either.

7.) 14 Nov 2017 10:08:23
zaha god know and it won't happen. fekir yes. conman yes. draxler yes. lemar yes.



05 Nov 2017 22:08:34
Annoying game - 3 sloppy goals and we created too many chances for City through useless corners, sloppy goal kicks and terrible distribution from different players. Despite that and all the chances that City somehow wasted - yet we find ourselves right in it at 2 -1 only to stand still like school kids to give away the third. I was taught to play to the whistle st the age of 10 and to not play stupid passes near or across your own box.
City were sloppy in front of goal and could have been a great point but we looked poor again - waste of Sunday afternoon


1.) 05 Nov 2017 23:56:52
Sy i have run successfull teams at youth level and we teach basic techniques, in defending and control. Some of the things that are allowed to go on under wenger which are never rectified are school boy stuff, i am embarrassed that i am watching professionals playing for us making rediculous errors that are cringe worthy embarrasing and allowed to go on week in week out. And these people are paid millions to do it.

2.) 06 Nov 2017 07:54:18
It is annoying Steve. I was a fan of Wenger last season but thought a change would be welcome. Now I believe a change is necessary. Then again it still worries me that the board are as clueless. Yesterday was more embarrassing than that score suggested. I was so annoyed and seeing Alexis walk around moaning at everyone despite his own performance being crap and ozil sulking really took it too far. I said In the summer and il say again. I would’ve rather had a rebuilding team than this troubled unhappy old we have now.

3.) 06 Nov 2017 09:59:20
Unfortunately 16 the rebuilding you talk of has to be done by a different manager to have a different outcome and that simply isn't on the agenda right now and looks unlikely to be this summer either.
Ultimately bums on seats will provide the reason for change.

4.) 07 Nov 2017 01:55:50
Gunner its very easy for the likes of us to say keep away from the ground. For me that would be a way but also a way would be to boycott buying food and drink at the ground and don't buy merchandise. That would hurt just as much, especially if it was advertised to the club as to why people were doing it.



29 Oct 2017 00:09:43
That's the attitude Kol

"Never give up, the only thing that matters in football is winning! "

Drive that mentality


1.) 29 Oct 2017 11:02:08
not long until his winning mentality is drilled out of him by wenger!

2.) 29 Oct 2017 18:48:23
Chances are NE he will become cosy and fit in or leave because he doesn't fit in.
This is our biggest problem players who enjoy the cosy lifestyle want to stay forever while winners go elsewhere to achieve their ambitions.
Reverse that and we've cracked it.

It seems like the board is happy with our performances and league finishes - in fact that we overachieve

Wenger seems to have given a good account of himself, still wants to win the league and understands that the past is in the past except that it sets the high expectation of the fans. He clearly loves the club and wants to win the EPL before he retires with the fa Cup not being enough. Clearly still understands the fans and is still a winner

Question is - do the Baird want it enough to invest what's required to compete year in year out. What's City and Chelsea spend over past 10 years? Or are they happy with us run as we are .

So, on the back of the above - any truth in the Marco Asensio interest from us and potential big bud or just paper trash again.


{Ed002's Note - It is not new that Arsenal are keen on Marco Asensio but interested sides have been told he is not for sale - although there is a chance he may be heading elsewhere.}

Difficult to argue with the write up. Key players for me are Kola ( hope he is fit or we are in trouble ) , Granit (hope he doesn’t take a nap every time he takes a pass from someone) and Lacazette ( needs to take his chance (S) when it arrives ) .

We have a few weaknesses - central midfield and LWB but if we have the right attitude and discipline then that will bridge the gap. If we do that then game on as both teams have fire power and there will be fireworks. Let’s be the team that lights the fuse and not the guy on the bonfire

Based on history and form - 4-2 unless we can suddenly pull our 💩 together and perform away from home.
