Xhaka off to Hertha Berlin - if true probably best for both parties.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 28 Dec 2019 11:13:52
Absolutely wish him well.

PEA has stopped talks with the club over his contract extension . that’s him gone soon then.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 07 Dec 2019 09:11:07
Madrid want to swap jovic for him be a shame but if he wants to go I take the young striker.


2.) 07 Dec 2019 11:06:21
Let him go bring on Martinelli and bring back Eddie from Leeds.
Let the egos go and replace with the enthusiastic endless effort filled players who want to be here.
Can we do worse than we are now?


3.) 07 Dec 2019 11:56:04
I would always keep quality players and PEA is undoubtedly quality! No point in getting rid as when / if we get the quality manager we want he won’t have the best tools to do the job. Before the season started most on here were confident of top four - still the same players just a manager not capable of getting the best from them . Thought we only needed attitude improvement but now we need attitude and tactics COYG.


4.) 07 Dec 2019 13:01:08
He's definitely quality Sussex mate but there is something very very wrong at Arsenal that our players can be so bad, it's all guess work from me and everyone else who doesn't have any day to day involvement at the club but I personally feel attitude mentality ego are a huge problem. Pepe warm up apparently was so lethargic and uninterested it took all those who saw it by surprise.
Bad management has almost certainly fed all the problems we have with our players but Emery has gone now yet the problems remain or a possibly even worse than ever now.


5.) 07 Dec 2019 13:29:24
What a load of rubbish 62, he joined probably being told CL football is on the agenda he’s now in a free falling mid table team, nothing to do with ego, I don’t blame him for stopping negotiating. Arsenal owe him rather than him owing Arsenal, take his goals away we are bottom 3 .


6.) 07 Dec 2019 16:18:47
No one is denying his abilty or contribution simply his and all other players mentality and egos.

The troops situation with Pea says an awful lot, the club say they don't want Troops in and around the players while Pea says you can't tell me who to hang out with.


7.) 07 Dec 2019 17:18:42
Again nonsense it seems the ego is yours and it mirrors the club, we aren’t The Arsenal anymore we are a mid table London club with not enough to offer, it shows players have ambition but we don’t.


8.) 07 Dec 2019 19:13:15
Love you Banbury :-)


9.) 08 Dec 2019 20:07:46
We have one of the best players going forward, and I don't think we have a bad or mid table squad, the club damaged and crushed their confidence with keeping such a manager for that long. You can't really believe on paper and in their day our team is not better than Leicester or chelsea team, but here we look miles off.
And you seriously can't blame pea for the team failing or if decided to leave a club that is showing no ambition.
We rvp left we all hated him and some still do but look at the players left since 2010 for clubs with ambitions they all won thing.
62 mate, I pretty much agree with you with almost everything on here but not this one, you always talk about if the manager not delivering for his company they will sack him, now if you are an ambitious employer with some great talent but your company not ambitious enough and using your intelligence or talent and other company offered you a deal where you can achieve you dream, than what will you do?


10.) 09 Dec 2019 03:16:27
A quality manager will get the best out of our players, who are clearly underperforming.
We have some quality players.
PEA and Lacazette are quality forwards. Martinelli is a superb young talent, as are Saka, Nelson and others. Torreira and Xhaka would be snapped up if placed on the market.
Bullerin and Tierney, a couple of quality full backs.
Leno is a decent keeper
Of course we need to move out and replace: Chambers, Mustafi, Sokratis and Ozil.
If we signed Smalling, a CB pairing of Smalling and Saliba next season would be a vast improvement.


11.) 09 Dec 2019 17:08:01
Don't think many would want xhaka.


12.) 09 Dec 2019 21:05:03
I would take being a mid table team at the moment Banbury, currently we’re stuck on 19 points, so I think relegation is starting to rear it's ugly head!


13.) 11 Dec 2019 08:10:15
Sorry Moe but apart from PEA/ Lacazette, no one from Arsenal would start for Chelsea and I’m not sure if any would make the bench.


 

 

12 Nov 2018 20:14:21
Heard today we might be interested in Mata . any truth Ed?

Banbury Gooner

{Ed002's Note - Not sure - he is out of contract in the summer and will have a choice - but he will be looking to play.}


1.) 12 Nov 2018 20:50:53
Cheers ED.


2.) 15 Nov 2018 03:47:23
I wouldn't mind. I like Mata, he's the one that got away for me when he moved to Chelsea. Top player, top bloke.


 

 

17 May 2018 20:42:56
ED
Usmanov to Everton. any truth?

Banbury Gooner

{Ed025's Note - there was a story in the dutch press today bambam but how true it is im not sure mate...but im all for it.. :)


1.) 17 May 2018 20:57:40
Lol I bet you are

FYI

I’m not.

{Ed025's Note - i want david dein as well mate...but you can keep kronke.. :)

Lot of chat about Arteta . not for me, far too soon in his coaching career.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 24 Apr 2018 10:52:48
It would be an extremely long shot giving him the job much like Cech trying to score past De Gea from a dead ball situation from his own goal line at 10pm in mid December with no floodlights, a totally unnecessary punt in the dark.


2.) 24 Apr 2018 15:33:38
It really would be very risky giving Arteta the top job. I think for this change to pay off and get the fans back onside they need to go after somebody with more stature and experience. I keep saying for me the logical choice on purely footballing reasons would be Conte but I’m not sure he would fit into the culture of our club.


3.) 24 Apr 2018 16:02:43
I like Conte Gary and wouldn't be unhappy with him at all but he does give the impression of getting fed up quickly if he doesn't get all his own way.
He would certainly find confrontation from some of our players on the training field in the early days
Conte " right Boys I want 8 laps of the pitch from you as part of your fitness assessment "
Arsenal players " which day we got to run 2 laps then boss " :-)


4.) 24 Apr 2018 19:09:28
Arteta is big NO!

Take a point from here, down to 10 men, 1-1 away.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 11 Jan 2020 14:47:55
A point at Palace is always a point gained rather than 2 dropped and with 10 men it's an excellent point, for this season performances are more important than points for our long term revival.
Of our 22 premier league performances so far this season Arteta has been in charge of 4 of them and all 4 qualify for a place in our top 5 premier league performances this season.
So far so very good.


2.) 11 Jan 2020 15:03:50
I wouldn’t disagree, decent start from MA.


3.) 11 Jan 2020 16:45:53
Mind you the top 5 performance bar wasn't set very high before Arteta arrived, I think the 3 1 defeat at Anfield was in 3rd place pre Artetta :-) :-) :-)


 

 

27 Dec 2019 21:47:45
Odd league, we’ve lost the same amount of games as M City

Funny old game.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 27 Dec 2019 22:28:15
And as many wins as a Villa in the relegation battle. 🥜🥜🥜.


2.) 28 Dec 2019 01:22:05
I noticed that, only Watford and Norwich have won less games than us!


3.) 28 Dec 2019 11:03:58
I didn't know them but villa Watford and Norwich stats don't surprise me at all but the City stat WOW that is incredible!
After reaching 100 and 97 points in two seasons I guess they were due a poor season and I guess after going a whole season unbeaten we were due 16 poor seasons :-)
Liverpool might want to bare that in mind and think about throwing a game :-)


 

 

26 Dec 2019 09:38:52
So Arteta wanted Xhaka at M City? Interesting, does that mean he can actually get something out of him that Wenger and Emery couldn’t?

Time will tell.

Ancelotti at Everton and we get Arteta, you silly people.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 16 Dec 2019 20:35:40
This happens when stooges run a football club.


 

 

16 Dec 2019 11:03:38
Arteta has met with Arsenal

What an error that would be.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 16 Dec 2019 12:05:34
For him or us BG? 😂.


2.) 16 Dec 2019 12:42:56
So, so disillusioned with everything at the club. I can't see how Arteta can be the one to turn this club around. We seem to be going from one bad mistake to the next and not learning from any of them.
We must get the right manager in the job before we can hope for anything else. In my opinion we needed a manager with a wealth of experience, a Benitez or an Ancelotti.
Also, what is it with all the comments everywhere from fans, pundits etc about how Arsenal are brilliant going forward and have top strikers at the club. Maybe I'm missing something but I don't think we're brilliant at all going forward. I think we are slow, predictable and boring to watch, plus I'll throw in how we are also gutless, spineless and an embarrassment to the shirt. At the beginning of the season some people were comparing our front 3 with Liverpool's! Laughable.
I think most need the sack to be honest. Where are these players dignity and self-respect? The club from top to bottom is rotten to the core and just stale. It needs ripping up and starting all over again or we will be having the same comments and discussions in another 15 years.

{Ed002's Note - The structure of the club will not attract the managers you want.}


3.) 16 Dec 2019 14:00:01
Thanks for the response Ed002. Why then do you think the club or whoever makes these decisions to run the club in this way cannot see that the way it is structured will not attract these names? Surely they must be intelligent enough to ask themselves why these managers won't come? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I am not so sure they are bright enough Jim. Ask yourself why Edu was added to the mix?}


4.) 16 Dec 2019 18:21:27
Hi edoo2, as you have mentioned multiple times that the problem at the club is the structure in place, what do you think us fans could do to help change the structure?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing - it would be a matter for the owner and board to deal with. Then of course there is the money issue I explained in the summer.}

After calming down - I really can’t see Dick getting the boot anytime soon, we are above Tottenham and Man U and still comfortably in touching distance of a Europa League spot . For the board to react I believe we have to drop into places 11/ 12 and below, until then it’s as you were IMO.
