Got to say this will he won't he saga surrounding Arsene is as difficult to predict as any suspense film I've seen, every time you think you know for sure how it's going to end the story takes another twist that makes you reassess your opinion yet again.
I'm now going for a twist in the tail where Arsene takes off his mask revealing his true identity as being Simon Brodkin all along,




17 Apr 2017 19:30:54
In my best Victor Meldrew voice
" I don't BELIEVE IT "
We finally get round to playing a formation that suits the players we have and best covers our weaknesses but then don't select the best 11 suited to carry it out?
Ramsey? Ox at full back not in the middle? Giroud not Walcott or Welbeck? Gibbs is tailor made for this formation AND! Xhaka not Le Coq?
Mad mad the man is driving me Mad :-)


{Ed025's Note - the good news is that arsenal win 3-0 G62 and arsene will have proved you wrong mate..

1.) 17 Apr 2017 21:01:32
Gunner I have no problem with the personnel, its here or there who he chose and it is only Middlesbrough. For me it the reactive wenger I hate instead of the proactive wenger that should have done this when everyone else was atcthe beginning. Too little too late as usual.

2.) 17 Apr 2017 20:44:10
Are some of our fans ever going to be happy with what he does 😂.

3.) 17 Apr 2017 21:54:50
D probably not because his timing is wrong. After the ship has sailed and all that. And no I will never be happy with wenger, he's past it and his desperation is copying others who have flown.

4.) 17 Apr 2017 23:35:43
Hi Ed025 it's 3pts even if not 3 0 mate so i guess Arsene did prove me wrong in the end.
I have been screaming for us to play this system or similar for years but i still think we have player better suited to it and Ramsey Xhaka in the middle makes no sense to me but hey ho it worked Arsene's​ way tonight so fair play.
For me it was a dress rehearsal for the semi final with City I'm not sure it will pay the same dividends without adjusting the personnel myself but i do the 3 4 3 or 3 5 2 is our best chance of making the final.

{Ed025's Note - a win is a win G62 and even though it was not emphatic it will have brought a bit of confidence back, city will be a different kettle of fish though mate and it will require a lot more than tonights level for arsenal to progress i feel..

5.) 18 Apr 2017 15:04:27
Are Barcelona interested in Allegri?

6.) 18 Apr 2017 13:11:32
Against City we just need to have an exceptionally good day and for them to have a poor day Ed025 mate, not impossible to happen even if unlikely.

{Ed025's Note - anything can happen in a semi G62, there are a lot of upsets in them and its usually the ones who battle and want it the most that prevail, sadly its not a trait we are seeing in this present arsenal side mate but you never know i suppose..

7.) 18 Apr 2017 20:57:21
Isco would be a great signing.



24 Sep 2016 12:06:31
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..

1.) 24 Sep 2016 20:24:42
Good prediction that ay ed025.

2.) 27 Sep 2016 12:19:18
head and shoulders? sure you aren't thinking of Joe Hart there g62?



01 Sep 2016 06:31:30
Hi Eds any news on who Arsenal might be looking to sign in January :-)


{Ed001's Note - funny you should say that g62. There is an Italian striker who just joined Nice on a free that he is tracking. An English midfielder on loan at Bournemouth, but that is more likely to happen next summer. He was considering taking Sakho from Liverpool this window but was worried by his injury history. He wants to monitor him for the next 6 months to ensure he can spend enough time on the treatment table to fit in at the Gooners....}

1.) 01 Sep 2016 08:37:34
Quality Ed001,
Any chance of us signing that German winger who just joined Werder Bremen?

He look's quality :-)

{Ed001's Note - not this January I am afraid, but I do hear they would be willing to do business for the low price of £25m next summer.}

2.) 01 Sep 2016 08:55:50
Im happy. not zlatan or pogba but Mustafi, xhaka i like alot. perez let's hope he can make use of the chances created.

and considering i hate florentino perez it will take me awhile to get used to saying perez without thinking of that mug.

quite surprised madrid did not make move for de gea.

3.) 03 Sep 2016 11:15:19
It's ok, I may be wrong but I believe he goes by Lucas.



17 Aug 2016 19:31:01
Just a theory and most probably a stupid one at that but are the Stan and Arsene getting ready for a Usmanov take over hence the lack of concern about fan unrest and Usmanov using the Everton card to let them know he won't be ripped off on the price?
It would explain everything that seems to be going on with Arsenal Stan Arsene and Usmanov right now.


{Ed025's Note - you may have a point there G62..

1.) 17 Aug 2016 20:16:20
It'd be a dream if you were right mate!

Stan is a massive problem at this club.
Happy to stay mediocre as long as it keeps his pockets lined.
And Arsene doesn't seem much better unfortunately, so it's a match made in heaven.

I refuse to believe that the club, board and all don't realise, recognise and understand the fans frustration anymore so maybe you're right, maybe it's just a 'not my problem anymore' attitude.

2.) 17 Aug 2016 21:33:02
All we can do is cross our fingers and hope the Uzbek bull frog takes us over.

3.) 17 Aug 2016 21:35:13
Im dreaming all ready gunner.

4.) 17 Aug 2016 20:24:33
eds is that a yes or you don't know.

{Ed025's Note - a strictly dont know mate..

5.) 17 Aug 2016 22:30:42
That's a Shame was getting my hoped up.

6.) 18 Aug 2016 10:24:54
you'd think someone worth $8b would have a little fun with his money. Maybe torturing fans year after year gives him a kick.

7.) 18 Aug 2016 11:39:50
I worked in Usmanovs house in Highgate. On his patio in the garden he has two cannons. And there was an arsenal magazine on his coffee table. He clearly actually loves the club. Doubt you'd find that in stans house.

For me City and Burnley are exceeding anything I thought then capable of in August.
Chelsea Spurs and Everton are all doing much worse than I expected and ourselves and Liverpool are just about where I thought they would be.
In fact because of Spurs and Chelsea struggling Arsenal and Liverpool are much more involved in the top 4 battle than I expected they would be at this stage.
Liverpools defensive problems haven't gone away by magic and neither have any of ours, the only difference is Klopp is 2 years into the job while Arsene is 21 years into his.




02 Dec 2017 19:49:58
75% possession
33 shots to Utds 8
15 on target to Utd 4
12 corners to Utds 1
At the end of the day it's all about goals and Utd scored 3 compared to our 1 so fully deserve their 3pts.

Absolutely no excuses but there are reasons to not get to down hearted, we have seen many many worse days against Utd and incalculable amounts of : no show days " from our players against top teams and others too but today wasn't one of those days so disappointed by the result but not with the effort and for me that's a real step forward from this team.


{Ed0333's Note - well said mate. Support the team through thick & thin.

1.) 02 Dec 2017 20:07:55
Thought you were I crei my hard done by, you should have had a pen and I hope pogba gets a lengthy ban for what he did but as you said it’s about putting the ball on the net and you’d couldn’t do hat. I’ve said for years that without De Gea United would be far worse off. Some days it just doesn’t go in and as you said positives were apparent.

2.) 02 Dec 2017 20:04:08
If they show effort passion pride i'm with them all the way Ed033 mate, I can take defeat just not the no show no effort no passion days that this team has become associated with too often in the past.
I have been impressed by their response to the city defeat and I'm hoping to see the same again after today.

{Ed0333's Note - You have made some astute and exceptional appointments off the field namely the guys from Barcelona and Dortmund respectively. You have plenty of cash reserves and if I were an Arsenal fan I would be expectant and excited about the future. I agree you guys really showed some real fight and character today after going 2-0 down.

3.) 02 Dec 2017 20:28:18
No one has the right to demand their team wins every or any one game, their ate just too many variables in football but effort passion commitment should be a prerequisite and I will never put the team down when they give those.

4.) 02 Dec 2017 21:08:44
We were unlucky with our chances and De Gea was superb tonight. In another day maybe we could have scored 5.
However I liked the players passion and commitment.
Home run had to end and who else but united to ruin the party once again lol.
Great football game to watch tho.

5.) 02 Dec 2017 21:18:02
Gunner62 I absolutely agree, if I have to watch Arsenal loose the game I would like to see it in the same way as today. No one can question commitment or passion of guys. they gave everything on the pitch, as you said disappointed only with result.

6.) 02 Dec 2017 21:18:11
Nothing to be embarrassed about today Moe mate and we haven't always been able to say that, so loads of credit where it's due.

7.) 02 Dec 2017 21:19:13
one of best games I have seen in ages

eds forget the cash reserves stan needs them and replacing ozil sanchez who are off to house hunt in Manchester is tough ask.

what a game tho. prem at its best.

{Ed0333's Note - it was a humdinger. I normally never watch UTD play unless they play Liverpool but I’m glad I got to witness that game. It truly was a great. Arsenal versus De Gea. Super spectacle.



02 Dec 2017 17:20:17
So both Matic and Lacasette start! Maximum strength from both managers, they must both taking this one seriously me thinks.




01 Dec 2017 11:49:36
Jose without a doubt will bring the double-decker tomorrow and be quite Happy to remove all the wheels without bothering with even putting any bricks under it, our Mf and defence are going to have to be super disciplined not to get over excited and allow Lukaku and Rashford to sucker punch them for fun on the counter attack.
A nice early goal from us would work wonders for the game and force Jose to fetch his Jack and do a wheel change any grand Prix pits team would be proud of.
My fears for Xhaka Ramsey partnership plus our defensive organisation and discipline haven't gone away yet but hopefully by tomorrow night they will be tiny in comparison to how huge they were in August.


1.) 01 Dec 2017 18:16:05
2-1 to us mate.

It's going to be a squeaky one though.

2.) 02 Dec 2017 08:02:07
don't like saying it 62 but I think you'll turn United over at the weekend 3-1.

You know I'll be hoping I'm wrong again. just to give us hope 😢.

3.) 02 Dec 2017 09:29:13
Long way to go yet Nes mate, only a fool would write you boys off from 2nd 3rd or 4th place at this time. I've a feeling it will be 1 1 today but it's a tough one to call either way.
As long as we turn up for it ( which I think we will today, surely ) I will be happy, but not as happy as I would be with a 3 0 win of course:-)



30 Nov 2017 09:08:50
Raver Raver where for art thy Raver?
Nes your silence speaks volumes :-)

Boys what is happening at Spurs? Down to 7th now which is incredibly on the back of two stunning performances against Real Madrid.
Long way to go yet but I must admit I'm shocked by your decline almost as much as I am by our response to the City boys against men performance.


1.) 30 Nov 2017 10:08:07
I thought when I read the first line you were singing a Christmas carol for the raver, we are having one good game and 3 bad ones at the moment and playing at Wembley is causing problems but I'm not using that as a excuse as if you can't beat the likes of Swansea, Burnley west brom etc you deserved to be 7th in the league. I think poch is underachieving at spurs as I think we have a very good squad which should be at least competing for trophies. I think the top 4 trophy will be between you and Liverpool with Watford a surprise contender. The only thing which is being held accountable at the moment is the poor Subaru which I've been kicking lumps out of lately after every defeat.

2.) 30 Nov 2017 10:58:09
Chill Raver,
14 games down, 24 games to go.

Plenty of points to be won. Or, in your case, lost 😂.

3.) 30 Nov 2017 11:09:48
Fair play Raver mate you haven't become a bad team overnight mate, it's taken decades to get there :-)
Seriously though mate under Poch you have made huge strides forward and this is a blip not a return to the norm of pre Poch Spurs.
Failure to land at least the 4th place trothy might just cost any of Poch Klopp Mourinho or Conte Thier jobs with expectations and demands being what they are now days.
At this stage I think it's fair to say that only Pep and Arsene look 100% safe for next season :-)

4.) 30 Nov 2017 14:58:19
I think the injury to Alderwierald in addition to Wanyama being out has caused problems, with Dier being moved back to cover. Imagine Dier and Wanyama back as DM's and Alderwierald returning and you have a different team.
I also believe that you miss Walker and Rose of last season, as they are decent attacking FB's. You still need quality squad players including a goalscoring forward.
It will be interesting to see how cope if you fail to win a trophy, fail to qualify for next season's CL and finish behind Arsenal.

{Ed001's Note - Dembele is the big loss, he has barely played and he controls the midfield for them.}

5.) 30 Nov 2017 15:22:59
Yes, Ed001 I agree, Dembele doesn't look the same since his injury and is there any truth in the rumour that Wanyama's injury is extremely serious, possibly career threatening?

{Ed001's Note - any ligament injury is possibly career threatening but his was an MCL which is less serious and he should be back soon, unless he picks up an infection such as Cazorla suffered. I am not aware of anything major like that affecting him though thankfully.}

6.) 30 Nov 2017 15:57:35
When we got our new fitness coach did Spurs employ our old one?

7.) 30 Nov 2017 16:25:04
Spurs have had 2-3 years working hard and closing down quick it's bound to eventually take its toll.

8.) 30 Nov 2017 17:12:54
Fair point Sanogo, 2 to 3 days of working hard and I'm ready for the weekend let alone 2 to 3 years :-) no wonder they look shattered.

9.) 30 Nov 2017 17:18:13
Fully agree with you R. G.

10.) 30 Nov 2017 17:51:35
Start of a bromance or the consolidation of profiles 🤔.

11.) 30 Nov 2017 23:44:53
Sano, no way are they the same people mate. Raver doesn't have a house in Monaco and we all know he can't even spell calculator let alone use one to conjure up a player's wage rise.

Eden I think as long as we make the Europa league and season tickets continue to sell then I think your last paragraph is the most likely scenario.
Arsene will not go willingly and with him the board can continue as they are because support for Arsene himself is still very loyal from an awful lot of fans who will never turn on him no matter what.
When Arsene leaves there will be a tidal wave of ambition from every Arsenal fan and the club will lose the capacity to simply carry on as always without Arsene to divide the fans.
Arsene needs this board and this board needs Arsene just as much and once the partnership is broken there will no stopping change.
If Stan went chances are a new owner would be ambitious and replace Arsene immediately and if Arsene goes there will be nothing standing between the fans and the board.
Can't see this being Arsene last contract somehow its not in his or the boards interest.

I think it's too easy to take away the credit on a good day by blaming a poor opponent.
Fact is Spurs are very much a top club now days and yesterday was an excellent result and performance.

I tend to agree Heybridge mate but what is the ulternative under Arsene?
If Arsene won't go then the only thing to do is keep hoping that somehow he will do something that makes a real difference I guess.
For me the smart money says he will simply plod on as he has for the last decade and do so for as long as he can until he is finally forced out.
But until then we just have to hope he does something different that actually makes a difference to our results over a season.

I would suggest to Arsene to allow someone with their own opinions and ideas to come in and help you.
It's still not impossible to leave on on a high with everyone celebrating your stay with us rather than Gooners all over the world celebrating your leaving like we'd won the premier league and champions league double.
Wake up Arsene for your own sake as ours.

Any team than contains Iwobi or Xhaka is not our best available. There are question marks over many other players but unfortunately Xhaka and Iwobi look lost in the premier league.
