It seems were are linked yet again with Benzema. One hopes its nonsense.


1.) 20 Oct 2017 07:01:20
Seriously and no jibe intended, but what top player is going to come to your lot with all the uncertainty at the moment? Wenger short contract, Ozil possibly going, Sanchez leaving.

At least if Wenger had gone at the end of last season the rebuild would have already started.

2.) 20 Oct 2017 08:50:04
Canโ€™t argue with that mate. Too much uncertainty at the club. Iโ€™d even had taken arsene rebuilding at the start of the season than this situation we are in.

3.) 20 Oct 2017 14:00:56
Raver wannabe ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

4.) 22 Oct 2017 20:11:08
so tell me again Jelfy, which British teams have won at the bernabeu in the Champions League. 2009 ring a bell. and no that wasn't the European cup. and don't rely on talk sport fella or Oddbod.

5.) 23 Oct 2017 16:36:09
Benzema a top player?



03 Jun 2016 20:36:16
It seems we have triggered Jamie Vardy's release clause. A steal at ยฃ20m. I wonder if Wenger really is going to open the chequebook. Vardy and Morata would be a statement of intent, no?


1.) 03 Jun 2016 20:44:33
Well, that what sky sports is saying but I still want morata too. Not too sure if vardy suits our game plan, saying that vardy still will be a great addition to any team.

2.) 03 Jun 2016 20:55:21
The release cluases aren't applicable in the premier league.

{Ed002's Note - Just to be clear - this is another misunderstanding about "clauses". I am not interested about going in to detail but you need to step back from worrying about "clauses" and "finances". I will say that there is interest in Vardy from Arsenal.}

3.) 03 Jun 2016 21:08:38
Thanks for coming back ed.

4.) 03 Jun 2016 21:20:26
Appreciate that Ed002.

5.) 03 Jun 2016 21:48:47
Thanks ed002.

6.) 03 Jun 2016 22:16:34
Welcome back Ed02

Not sure I want Vardy but if we sell Gibbs and Ox - we need some home grown talent.

7.) 03 Jun 2016 22:26:49
Lets hope this doesn't drag on all through the summer and is sorted quickly. No 20 mil and a pound offers. If he's our target then get him.

8.) 04 Jun 2016 11:12:05
Sounds positive from Stevie ๐Ÿ˜.

9.) 04 Jun 2016 00:32:54
I am personally cautious about the Vardy interest. I'm not sure how he'd do in our system. Would much rather see us move for Lukaku.



29 Jul 2014 13:51:21
Arsenal will sign either Khedira, Pogba or Schneiderlin within a week according to some agent chappy I met in Clapham today. Could be nonsense, but he seemed fairly certain. He also mentioned potential bids for Carvalho and Costa. Arsenal have lots of fingers in lots of pies he reckons!


1.) No offence but sounds like he just said every name he could think of if there is enough s**t something has to stick

2.) How did you happen to bump into an agent and discuss transfers?



13 Jul 2014 17:35:36
Arsenal will sign Khedira once the WC is over, and Debuchy once NUFC source a replacement or Arsene makes a fuss. Along with a keeper, I suspect that will be our business this summer. The only possible addition will be Draxler, if he becomes available, and a few youth additions. Personally I would like Arsene to add another striker, as even with Sanchez, I fear we are a little short.


1.) A keeper, and maybe a center back will be added.

2.) I agree another striker and its remy all day long as he knows the league and he knows were the net is the type of player who comes on to score unless our fearless leader uses theo as a striker aswell but if vermalin leaves a cb and a left back monreal is poor and gibbs is injury prone



01 Sep 2013 13:18:41
Suarez rumours resurfacing. can't see it myself. The Benzema, Ozil and de Maria chatter appears to have gone quiet. Usually, there is quite a bit of talk in my part of NW London, but it's all quiet! Not sure if saying there are few rumours is actually a rumour at all! I cannot believe we will end this window with nothing of substance.


1.) There is a rumour floating about the crowd that another bid is going in for Suarez. wouldn't be too disappointed if we get him

2.) 01 Sep 2013 15:48:59
I know what you mean but Flamini and Sanogo have substance.

Gary Nevill makes a lot of sense here, speaking early on in the season. It gives, on the basis of what we have seen yesterday, a strong indication of what we might expect to see in this window and the next. Although he does not explicitly refer to Klopp, the comparisons of Emery's task is relative to where Liverpool were 3 years ago.





02 Dec 2018 13:15:26
Interesting line up today. I think it indicates the inevitable sale of Ozil and Ramsay in January. If neither are preferred for a game like this, it begs the question what games they are first choices for. Do we look better with both Laca and Pea? Thoughts anyone?


1.) 02 Dec 2018 13:47:07
Like to see both on the pitch as Laca creates space for others with his movement. Think PEA benefits from that. Both in starting 11 and both through the middle - 4 4 2 or 3 5 2 or 3 4 1 2.



25 Nov 2018 12:47:54
I never feel especially happy with a back three. I always think this formation shows up our lack of width. Still, I'm sure Dick knows.


1.) 25 Nov 2018 14:05:51
But it should make more solid and less easy to expose on the break.
The full backs are our width whether we play 2 or 3 at the back, Belerin is expected to provide the ammunition constantly but no matter how quick he is he can't go from one end of the pitch to the other in 2 or 3 seconds like the ball does.
3 at the back should buy us recovery time when we lose possession.

2.) 25 Nov 2018 14:30:07
Happy with 3 at the back although not sure Mustafi should be in the back 3
Would then like to see Laca and PEA as a front 2 with Ozil behind them in the hole
Good to see us changing formation and dropping players as donโ€™t fit plan for the day eg Ozil even though I wish he was starting.

3.) 25 Nov 2018 15:30:03
Spot in Gunner62. That's how it turned out. Some good performances and some shocking ones, Mhkii in particular, one of his worst games for us. Holding, Kola, Pea, and Torriera all v. good. We will need to defend better than that against spurs - a crucial game not to lose.

4.) 25 Nov 2018 16:21:16
Absolutely Urban mate, our defence is scary and if you look at almost all our games this season you think? " We won't get away with that v Spurs ", but then the Liverpool game comes to mind and you think? " should we be more excited than worried " because if we can up our game enough to hold out Liverpool then only City are a step up and a tougher ask than Liverpool.
Personally I'd stick with the back 3 and play SY's front 3 of Ozil Pea Lacasette.
For me 3 4 3 makes sense given the players we have at our disposal right now and that front 3 are as good as almost any there is given the opportunity and enough of the ball.
As for Miki no disrespect but is he any better than Theo? 1 good game in 5 and pretty poor in the other 4 games, if we had sold Sanchez for the 50 million offered in the summer of 2017 would we have even bid for Miki in the first place? We took him because it was our only option left open to us in the end, but hopefully Dick will eventually get more from him and others too.
17 games unbeaten in all competitions we'd have taken that last August and we'd definitely take 20 unbeaten after next week and the United game that follows it :-)

5.) 25 Nov 2018 18:15:29
Would like to see the young Greek dude in the back 3 along with Sokratis and Holding

Bellerin and Kola with Torriera plus a new CM

Ozil in front in the middle then PEA and Laca


6.) 25 Nov 2018 18:51:06
We are closer than we have been for more than a decade to being competitive, it was always going to be a marathon rather than a sprint but we've made an impressive start where we are still on the shoulder of the leading pack.

7.) 26 Nov 2018 07:01:21
Three at the back suits the pkayers we have at this club at the moment. Its the flexibility that we need to be ablexto adapt to formations.



02 Jun 2018 20:25:14
Like the rest of us, I have no idea what transfer budget Emery has. I feel quite certain however, that world class calibre players in Europe's top clubs are unlikely to jump ship to Arsenal currently. I see Emery trying to make three - four signings of astute, experienced players to get us, kicking and screaming back in the top four. Then we have a chance with the Dembele's of this world - when we can compete in the CL.


{Ed0333's Note - I still think you should have signed Nagelsmann



04 Mar 2018 15:32:18
I thought I'd seen the worst. I really think that Wenger should go now. The players look lacklustre and resigned to failure; the club has the sense of decay about it that echoes the latter days of the Graham era. Decisive action needed now, even if we are stuck with a caretaker for the remainder of the season. So disheartened.


1.) 04 Mar 2018 15:48:05
Well Wemger won't resign and the board won't sack him!

I gather that Athletico M have lodged an ยฃ18m bid for Ozil. I can't vouch for its veracity, but on two or three news sites.

h2z_gunner - I have some sympathy with that view, but it's not exactly clear that Suarez is our seventh choice of player. We may have had an interest in many players, but not all should be perceived as relative choices. The money situation is what it is - a combination of the business model Arsenal choose to pursue and FFP. I suspect the issue that constrains our activity in the market place is a squad bloated with highly paid players who we need move on before any serious activity takes place. January has never been the best time for such surgery. Contract issues force our hand with some players (e. g. Ramsay) and injuries may provoke a knee jerk purchase for the defence. However, I get the distinct impression that Emery has a very good idea what he wants this squad to look like come August, I just think he is the type of man who is patient. Remember, Liverpool fans were saying saying 'same old, same old' in Klopp's first year; look at them now.

I'm more concerned about the 4 and the 2 to be honest.

A little bit too regressive a move for me. Sorry.

Given your Madrid/ Germany comparison, it might be better to buy more, not less, creative players.

Lichtsteiner is dreadful, and a dirty player at times as well.

Playing with a high line depends on defending as a team. Aside from PEA, few of our forward players can do that effectively. This is the reason Ozil is conspicuous by his absence in tough games, the problem is what we have in his place is not much of an improvement. This does not absolve from blame a truly dreadful set of central defenders where surgery is most definitely needed in this window and the next, but it does indicate why Emery is looking at attacking forward players in the transfer window (if of course reports are to be believed) who can play that role.

I do think that this is a three year project to transform the style of play and who is playing it. It's worth noting that if we are not going to buy world class players, for reasons of parsimony or poverty, we might be better moulding the young talent into the team Emery wants, rather than buying second best; Toreirra style finds are likely to be less, rather than more, prevalent.

Any game against the spuds is huge, but naysayers will have little to grumble about if we fail to progress in a low priority tournament. Not that I don't want to see us lift it, but its not a season breaker if we lose.

. Do I need to hide? :)

Disjointed all round, but three points is the most significant outcome. I still think the beginning of next season is when we will see they shape of Emery's team - in the meantime, a top four finish will be a success for this year in the EPL, and the win helps.
