Papawhatever Greek lad is about to join us according to Ornstein and the bbc main page.
Not 100% certainty but as close as it gets to being one in the world of footie rumours.

According to David Ornstein the feeling within Arsenal amongst the staff is that Artetta is going to be our next manager but Ornstein himself says Allgeri is still very much in the running and is still very doable.




20 Mar 2018 21:50:12
Out of interest if Southampton were to win the FA cup this season and avoid relegation should their fans consider they've had a good season?

By the same token if Arsenal were to win the europa league and finish 6th 13 points behind 4th place and 33 points behind the champions have we had a good season?

Interesting question because I think most saints Fans would say this season has been horrible fa cup or no fan cup but I think a lot of Arsenal fans would be prepared to forget about all the awful league performances and results and just relish in the winning of another trophy.


1.) 21 Mar 2018 09:50:58
the objective of football is to win.

win a trophy at the end of a season is to me a successful season.

no one has the divine right to win anything, and I think fans are feeling too entitled these days. I love how everyone thinks its bants to say something funny but not take it when something is funny against you.

Arsenal fans having a meltdown on twitter and outside the emirates, like wenger has decided to ruin the club.

get allegri they shout or whoever else, yes I can understand the frustration, but trust me it does not turn around in a season, sometimes it takes a few years.

I was talking to a fan recently who said I want to enjoy the success Barcelona and marid have had, well we don't have either one of the key players those teams have, and you take away that key player from Madrid and Barcelona and xavi and iniesta or modric and kroos can pass all they want they will not get the result.

the landscape will change eventually until then while this season is not the way any of us hoped, i'm still optimistic, and I want to see it out, however bad it is, and any trophy for me seen with my own two eyes a real victory.

2.) 21 Mar 2018 10:37:33
So Larker mate, have you enjoyed this season? Has it been a good enjoyable season for you?
If not will it suddenly become one if we lift the europa league cup and if we don't will it be an awful season.
Will being out of top 4 contention despite still having 10 games to play and will it being mathematically impossible to win the title despite having those 10 games left not mater anymore if we lift the europa?
What about Burnley being our main competition with 10 games left rather than utd city and co?
Can a cup win really make all that disappear?
Will all suddenly be ok?

I agree the next manager will need time to get things back on track it's a really big job and as for becoming Barcelona or Real that's just silly talk but becoming competitive over 38 games again shouldn't be beyond a club like Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs have both made huge strides towards becoming competive again in the last couple of seasons why can't we?

3.) 21 Mar 2018 21:03:44
Regardless of any trophy, the league tells you if you are progressing or not. That is the yardstick not winning a cup, that is just a good day out.

4.) 22 Mar 2018 07:44:52
If we were to win the EL and finish 6th of course it's a successful season. Trophies are the target. Arsenal will always be FA Cup winners in 2017, 2015 and 2014 and if we win the EL, we will be winners of it in 2018. Will anyone in 5 years time ever take seriously the fact that the toot qualified for the CL? We will have won 4 trophies in 5 seasons, whilst other clubs such as the Toot and Liverpool won't have won any. Did we get a trophy for finishing 2nd to PL winners Leicester or does anyone really remember it? Last season Man U win the League Cup and the EL, I can't off the top of my head recall the position they finished in the League. Who finished second to Chelsea last season escapes me, but I know Man U win the EL.

5.) 22 Mar 2018 08:43:25
It's the league that accounts for the majority of games each season RG mate and its the league that dictates your standing and competiveness in the game.
Is it really ok for a club like Arsenal to be a cup team only?
If so then it wouldn't matter if we were relegated as long as we won the fa cup each year.
38 league games v 5 fa cup matches! Is that really enough to keep the fans waiting more?
Judging by the empty seats at the Emirates lately obviously not.
People want to see Arsenal being competitive both in head to head games and over 38 league games with the other big clubs.
The league table never lies but as Wigan and Portsmouth fans will tell you the fa cup often misleads.
Season tickets at Arsenal are extortionate prices and suddenly become more expensive still if we accept a 5 game season when we are in competitive mode.
I wonder how long Klopp Poch Mourinho Conti and Pep would last with 6th place and a cup each year and everyone in football in total agreement that Liverpool Spurs United Chelsea or City were in steady decline?
My guess is not to long fa cup or no fan cup.

6.) 22 Mar 2018 16:29:32
I get it gunner, i'm not blind, but I can't be asked to over react. I am going to give it one more year, there has been a push to make some statements, we have ozil, and aubameyang, I don't rate mikhitaryan, our defense and gk is woeful and that balance is just not there.

I do not see the need to keep wilshere, its guys like him we pine for on sentiments that keeps the club where it is.

Ramsey is another who has one good game every 10 and is injured most year, and i'm sure he will thrive in another setup be it man utd or Chelsea or wherever.

GK has to be a priority, a CB has to be another, another season of lacazette and aubameyang fighting it out should be good for the squad, welbeck stays purely for numbers.

Ive no idea what the club are going to do, if dembele is an option we should go for him.

Santi and per and cech and ospina have to head out the door.

we have done well to let go of giroud and sanchez and get something back in return.

if there is to be serious change I would give it another 2 years before we see ourselves competing again, right now we just don't have the depth or balance to pull of a consistent league standing.

7.) 22 Mar 2018 19:38:28
It would be interesting to ask Wigan fans and manager if they would swap winning the fa cup for non relegation that year. What was/ is most important, winning the fa cup and having a great day out, or being able to stay in the prem. Yes they have won the fa cup but they are now a championship also ran and out of the prem and all of its financial clout and kudos.

{Ed033's Note - i remember that a few people on here thought it would be a good idea for Arsenal to finish just outside the top 4 so Arsenal could win the Europa League.

8.) 23 Mar 2018 08:46:26
I think most of us who thought missing out on top 4 would be a good thing thought it would force change to happen so be taking a step back to take 10 forward but unfortunately we've taken a step back but change hasn't come so we've continued to go backwards.
This decline has been coming for years and we have as a club manager and fans refused to accept it, we've been lucky that United got it wrong when replacing Fergie meaning United freed up a champions league spot that had previously already been spoken for, we were lucky that in 2016 season all the big boys had a season off and Spurs bottled it on the last day at Newcastle to allow us to grab second place 14 points behind Leicester.
Now all the big boys are back up and running and all but Chelsea are stronger than at any point in the last 5 years our refusal to accept what was plain to see and act accordingly has caught up with us and been fully exposed for all to see.
Are we finally ready for change now? Not quite :-) we're still thinking about whether we need to change or not;-)
Do we blame Arsene the players for where we are now or the board or ourselves?
A combination of all 4 in my opinion because we were in David Camerons words pretty much all in this together, the vast majority of fans plates and board members were happy to carry on as always under Arsene.



22 Feb 2018 20:35:40
Surely not? Not even we can let this happen. 27 minutes gone and we are rocking like a 60s band.




12 Feb 2018 22:14:57
At the current rate of exchange for pts per game finishing 4th place is going to take 76 to 77pts this season, for us that would mean taking 31pts from a 33 which of course is beyond reasonable possibility, but it's going to be a very interesting fight between Spurs, Liverpool, Chelsea and even Utd to avoid finishing 5th this season.


1.) 13 Feb 2018 02:34:33
We need to take points off City in 2 weeks, but thankfully one or both of Man U/ Chelsea will drop points. We need to take it one week at a time in the league and keep our eyes on the Europa league final. After last season I have stopped believing in miraculous 4th place charges in the last 10 weeks but winning the Europa and the league cup would still constitute a very successful season if we miss out on 4th. Our winter business has made me slightly hopeful, keep the faith mate.

I know he's a Liverpool player now but still sad to hear the Ox will miss most of this season because of the injury he picked up last season.
Good lad the Ox on and off the pitch.


{Ed025's Note - i agree mate..

1.) 18 Jul 2018 22:15:32
Agree gunner but a few of us called it. He will be, sadly, like wilshire, blighted by injury.

2.) 18 Jul 2018 23:04:31
Up until that injury his Liverpool career seemed injury free Steve mate, hopefully it's just one bad one for the lad.
I know his Arsenal record wasn't that good on the injury front but I think that was an Arsenal thing more than a personal things as we were inundated with injuries for 7 or 8 seasons with numerous players missing for long periods each season.

3.) 19 Jul 2018 00:51:57
Hes made of glass mate.

4.) 19 Jul 2018 07:46:39
You could be right mate, let's hope not though.

5.) 19 Jul 2018 07:59:04
No surprise when an injury prone player gets injured. George Graham looked at the injury history of a player before signing them. Hence, why Emery has let Wilshere go, as it's only a matter of time before he suffers injury again. Under Wenger, many players who were susceptible to injury were retained at huge financial cost to the club; Cazorla, Diaby, Rosicky come to mind.

6.) 19 Jul 2018 10:29:27
Were the players injury prone or was it the club and it's methods that were injury prone?
Ox has had one injury at Liverpool which unfortunately is a serious one but prior to that he had his best run of both form and fitness in his first season at Liverpool.
How many consecutive games did he play at Liverpool before his injury?
What was his best run at Arsenal in all his years with us?
Our poor record on injury has been well documented over the years and with Dicks training methods hopefully that's something that will change.
As for George well he wasn't one for excuses or molly codling and niether is Jurgen Klopp who told Danny Sturridge that sometimes it's natural to play through pain.

7.) 19 Jul 2018 16:56:59
Ive always said it gunner, it was also the type of player we signed. We all knew about sanchez's fitness before he came and he was always going to be a strong reliable player. can't always be said for some of the others.



17 Jul 2018 21:54:45
3 weeks left in the summer window hold on to your hats I'm sure it's going to be fast and furious once United and Chelsea get in full flow the domino effect will really kick in with replacements being needed for those who lose thier best players and other players becoming surplus to requirements, thier will as always flops to be avoided and brilliant bargin buys to be had.


1.) 17 Jul 2018 22:14:49
I think it’s going to be a bad summer for Chelsea unless they dig in with their top players . Jorginho good player tho. I don’t know where or what united need to be going and buying.

2.) 17 Jul 2018 23:50:09
I think both will try to buy solutions to their problems in an attempt to close the gap on City and spark the merry-go-round that usually follows.
Jose needs to be seen as improving his poor United and closing the gap between United and City plus Chelsea usually do well in a new manager 1st season but sustainability seems their age old problem.



15 Jul 2018 12:10:03
Just 4 weeks from today before life under Dick and co kicks off and we will get some answers as to what he has in mind for us, exciting to say the least.
Just realised that doesn't give the players involved in the world cup later stages much chance of making the start of the season.
Isn't it a fifa rule they have to be given a month off between their world cup ending and reporting for preseason training with their clubs?
Needing 2 or 3 weeks to get fit again after their holiday it will mean some players like Hazard KDB Lukaku Pogba Kante won't play until September.
No Stones Walker KDB Kompany to face us on opening day then :-)


1.) 15 Jul 2018 13:27:24
Which was why I made comment last week about the Spuds rejoicing that they still had 9 players at the World Cup.

With City 1st and Chelsea our 3rd game in, every little helps. 😂

To be honest I want to see how we fair against everyone’s best otherwise we’ll flatter to deceive, much like England just have.

2.) 15 Jul 2018 14:45:41
I'd take a 9pts flattering over a 0 points battering any day of the week mate :-)
Sometimes this things go for you sometimes against you it's maximising the advantage while you've got and limiting the damage when you don't have it that matters come game 38.

3.) 15 Jul 2018 17:37:01
Me too 62 and if it works in our favour I’m not going to complain one bit. 😁.

4.) 16 Jul 2018 10:24:21
Spurs would have to start the season without Lloris, Rose, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertongen, Dembele, Alli, Dier and Kane. Add the fact that Eriksen, Sanchez and Son will not follow the preseason and barely make it back in time. it might look tricky to get a good starting XI the first rounds.

City must manage without Walker, Stones, Kompany, Mendy, KDB, Sterling, and Delph. With Ederson, Otamendi, Danilo, Fernandihno, D. Silva, B. Silva, Aguero and Jesus barely making it back. This might be an very interesting start of the season.

{Ed002's Note - They will all be available to be picked.}



13 Jul 2018 08:33:59
I'm really surprised by Liverpools interst in Shaqiri just doesn't seem a Klopp type player to me.
Obviously loads of talent but his work ethic is one of the lowest I've seen.
Klopp must have a plan for him but it's certainly not an obvious one to me.


1.) 13 Jul 2018 14:05:25
Depends if klopp can get through to him! Good impact from the bench.

2.) 13 Jul 2018 14:51:01
True mate he could be that, I just wouldn't want him in my starting 11.

3.) 13 Jul 2018 17:15:03
Nor mine and certainly not in Liverpool’s starting 11. But I’m sure he will be better in a Liverpool shirt than he was in a stoke shirt. And I’m sure klopp will find a way to motivate him. It could turn out a great signing but could equally be a bad signing. At the price I believe it’s worth a punt.



11 Jul 2018 19:53:19
As good as 45 minutes I can ever remember seeing from any England team that, calm strong positive lovely intricate passing and looking like a completely different England we've been used to seeing over the years.
What the second 45 holds who knows but just how good were England in that first 45? Brilliant.

8.) 11 Jul 2018 21:57:37
Hey mate maybe it's not coming home after all but the team are coming back in much better shape than they left in.
No in the end they didn't quite have it in them but they gave their all and it's all you can really Demand of them, they ran out of steam and ideas simply because mentally and physical they had nothing left to give.
Disappointed for them but not in them and disappointed for the whole country.
Who knows what the future holds but it looks more promising now than it did 3 weeks ago.

9.) 11 Jul 2018 22:15:04
They will never get such an easy journey to a final - they played no one and didn’t take advantage of it. May be too many Spuds in the side 😂😂 . Need that winnng mentality like us 😂😂.

All the spurs bottlejobs coming home that's all, a few mancs and a few chins. Time to focus on the real stuff now. COYG.

Dicks got a similar job to the one Klopp walked into at Liverpool 2 and half years ago inheriting a team that is off the pace and a club that is in desperate need of an overhaul.
Arsene allowed Liverpool United and Spurs plenty of overtaking room and unless someone is kind enough to show us the same courtesy we are going to need to be patient with Dick as he trys to find a way past the heavily congested traffic ahead of us.
Top 4 would be a fantastic achievement in season one in my opinion but as long as we improve and narrow the gap it's all good news.

A lot of people rate him Q and some think he's well over rated, his best bits are good no question but he needs playing in an advanced Mesut role to see the best of him on a regular basis because in central midfield he picks and chooses if and when he puts in a shift or not.
If we didn't have Mesut he'd be an ideal substitute for him and clubs who could use someone in that role might be prepared to give him that job especially if they use euro 2016 to measure him by when he looked excellent there.

We will only find out for sure if an offer comes in from a rival big club, if United Liverpool or Chelsea make a move then we will know how Aaron really feels.
We've never had this will he won't he from Kos and he had good offers from Bayern and othes plus is on way below par wages compered to what Jack Theo and others were on, but he stayed despite the money and competitiveness he could have had elsewhere, talk is cheap it's a players actions that ultimately says it all.
