PEA has a good chance of going according to SKY just now

19:20.

Oxfordshire

1.) 31 Jan 2022 19:42:45
Their saying agreement reached.

{Ed014's Note - thank god for that!


2.) 31 Jan 2022 19:47:41
Ed14, that’s our business done then.

{Ed014's Note - yep can’t see anyone else coming in. We apparently made attempts for Melo and Vlahovic neither worked out and that was that.


3.) 31 Jan 2022 19:51:04
As long as we are not paying the balance of his salary Ed. He wanted to go play for Barca, so he should accept whatever they can afford to pay him, but we shouldn’t be making up the difference.

{Ed014's Note - sadly I’d imagine we’re paying a fair chunk Epping, can’t see Barca as affording a lot to be honest.


4.) 31 Jan 2022 19:56:30
Free transfer on a permanent deal…. That must of been some rift with arteta.

{Ed014's Note - £350 grand a week off the wage bill, result!


5.) 31 Jan 2022 20:05:32
Roughly £25m but we could lose just about the on Nketiah.


6.) 31 Jan 2022 20:09:32
If that’s true Wilfred, I am over the moon

Good riddance.


7.) 31 Jan 2022 20:10:28
It’s no result without a replacement ED

We are weak end of.

{Ed014's Note - the other question to ask is who around us has got stronger?


8.) 31 Jan 2022 20:26:06
Mores to the point

Arteta could have dealt with it better and kept him until the end of the season

It’s very costly to have no CL football as we know.


9.) 31 Jan 2022 20:26:44
I disagree Banbury mate

We started playing well as soon as pea was dropped. So we lost nothing.


10.) 31 Jan 2022 20:33:59
Apart from partey and god help us xhaka we are going to the end of the season with the team that couldn’t beat Burnley at home… let’s hope lacazette don’t get injured otherwise we will be scraping to get in the nations conference for me.


11.) 31 Jan 2022 20:39:38
We're are 2 injuries away from disaster imo but that's life I suppose.


12.) 31 Jan 2022 21:20:44
Spurs might of got stronger ed.


13.) 31 Jan 2022 21:25:35
I'm with Malaga, we had Auba haunting the place like a well paid ghost. Better for the players he isn't there, he has been awful for 18 months.


14.) 31 Jan 2022 21:15:37
Some of that £350k can go to new contracts for some of the younger players who actually care about the club.


 

 

27 Jan 2022 20:24:15
Chambers gone

Thank god.

Oxfordshire

1.) 27 Jan 2022 20:36:54
Didn't even hear rumours of this transfer happening. Kinda gives me hope of incomings now. As for Chambers, i am glad he's gone. Never really did much and it's another one of the wage bill.


2.) 27 Jan 2022 20:50:35
Does any one know how much we got.


3.) 27 Jan 2022 20:59:33
Bit harsh - he was a professional and did alright for us. Don’t understand people jumping on players just because they leave.


4.) 27 Jan 2022 21:31:11
Would of rather kept chambers as back up to Tomi than Cedric. good luck to the lad, always professional and did a job when asked.


5.) 27 Jan 2022 22:21:37
We got 2m for him.


6.) 27 Jan 2022 22:52:15
Yep better than Cedric all day long But no one wants to buy Cedric I guess - figure that one out we’re left with the worse player hmmmm! COYG.


7.) 28 Jan 2022 10:24:14
Must admit I really don't get the "thank god" comment.

I understand he was never a regular starter, but he always gave his best for the club, never embarrassed us, never complained, always played with a smile, and seemed to always get us out of a hole when he was called upon during injuries etc.

and much prefer him to Cedric.

wish him all the best at the villa, I'm not sure he will get much more playing time tho, but deserves respect from arsenal fans surely.


8.) 28 Jan 2022 12:34:41
Well I cannot say that I am dissapointed .


9.) 28 Jan 2022 18:39:42
I thought he was a good guy, always available, always tried his best and didn't cause problems. I'm going to miss him in the squad.


10.) 28 Jan 2022 20:24:05
People do need to understand teams need a squad? Would I want him starting away to Man City. No, but then again whoever we pick we would lose anyway. As much as we would all like a squad of 22 world class players, it ain’t going to happen. Even if we were some kind of super rich club, for me, Any player not in the starting XI, by definition is not world class, as if they were they would be in the starting XI, or they are world class in their own mind, but are now majorly peed off and will quickly become troublesome when not picked. I think you need a squad of about 15 top top players, with other good players to back them up. Chambers and Elneny fit that template. They are not world class, but good players who know their place. No toys being thrown out the pram when not picked, but professional to the best of their ability when played. So am I happy seeing a squad that still contains Xhaka and PEA while Chambers goes, absolutely not.


11.) 28 Jan 2022 22:12:51
Good luck to Chambers at Villa he only going ever be a a bit part player for us and has never really nailed down a primary position between RB and CB, jack of of all master of none situation which happens to a lot of players really. A good pro sure but we have held onto these types of players for too long in my view to detriment of us and the player really so time to move on and free up space and wages. If Saliba comes back (hope he is given a proper chance as being doing well at Marsille) we have 4 Cb's anyway so we covered there with Holding, White and Gabby assuming Mari will be sold at season end.

So EK is preparing another bid, 2 billion, if correct still not enough IMO. I think he has to be 2.5 billion and above to tempt the Americans.

Oxfordshire

1.) 09 Jun 2021 15:34:40
You just tagged on half a billion like it's nothing. Do you realise what half a billion actually is.


2.) 09 Jun 2021 20:08:26
Oh dear understand it in the context of the situation which you clearly don’t - to us it’s huge but the new offer won’t even raise an eyebrow on the Americans forehead . Yes to us it’s huge to a billionaire who has said “ we don’t need the money “ it’s nothing.


3.) 10 Jun 2021 00:12:47
Quick google search says that Arsenal are valued roughly around $2.8bn so I imagine the owners would want more than that.


4.) 10 Jun 2021 08:09:19
That’s right fuser which is why the yanks would want something approaching 3 billion . EK is way off the mark.


5.) 10 Jun 2021 15:09:17
It’s great to want someone who is passionate about your club being the owner but is he a realistic prospect? Spotify is only worth £3bn itself, so without another backer alongside EK I don’t see it as being realistic.


6.) 10 Jun 2021 21:16:37
LOL.
Spotify is worth $46bn.


7.) 11 Jun 2021 13:26:54
It doesn't matter how rich or poor you are half a billion is a huge difference. I understand the original statement. Also $2.8 billion dollars is just under £2 billion pounds sterling as of this morning, if you can't grasp basic currency, don't band around fictitious figures.


8.) 11 Jun 2021 14:08:15
They aren't going to sell at all. Arsenal fc makes them money. Its a fairy tale that is never going to happen.

Talk of Odegaard being offered out to other PL clubs this Summer, let’s hope he’s that happy with us he stays.

Oxfordshire

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal have no option to buy him.

Martin Odegaard (RW/AM) Arsenal beat Real Sociedad to a loan in January but have no option to buy. Real Madrid are happy to include him on a lengthy list of players that they are open to selling or including in exchanges in the summer - and that may suit Seville who have a player that Real Madrid are showing an interest in. Ideally Real Madrid would like an auction for him but will seek €40M for a cash sale. Arsenal would consider him on a permanent deal but it depends on finances which are tight.}


1.) 07 Apr 2021 20:20:25
If he has good options it's difficult to think why he would want to be at Arsenal next season.

Reasons staying would be game time he gets at Arsenal.

Reasons for not staying are it's highly likely we won't be playing European football next season plus there is nothing apart from wishful thinking to argue Arsenal will be any different next season under Arteta than they were last season or are this season under Arteta.

I don't know the lad and maybe there are reasons I'm not aware of why he would want to be at Arsenal next season but there certainly isn't any obvious reason to think he would.


 

 

05 Oct 2020 19:10:57
Partey isn’t done yet - I’d be amazed if we were to get him.

Oxfordshire

1.) 14 Oct 2020 10:09:55

Arteta “ Top four is very possible “

Which season mate?

Oxfordshire

{Ed077's Note - next? It's always next season?


1.) 20 May 2022 17:29:16
I agree 100% with Arteta on this.

Liverpool City Chelsea and Spurs have all proved beyond doubt finishing in the top 4 is nothing like liking your own elbow, it has repeatedly been proven to be both be possible and very achievable, in fact 4 teams have achived this fete each and every season since league football first came into existence.

This bloke Arteta definitely has his finger on the pulse of the game, that's very clear.


2.) 20 May 2022 17:55:56
"Looking back, I've been back a few years and seen a few examples of things like this happening at the end of the season. The longer the game is close, I am hopeful" banking on the worst team in the league, with nothing to play for and only 5 wins all season suddenly showing up! ? Even a draw won't do, we would have to win by 15!


3.) 20 May 2022 20:27:57
I don't get what has you lot so wound up. He hasn't said anything wrong. Numerically, it is still possible for us to finish 4th.


4.) 20 May 2022 20:37:07
And even then we'd have to show up and perform v Everton Eden mate.

This reminds me of those old England world cup and Euro campaigns where a mathematical possibility was dug up as to how it was still theoretically possible for England to progress beyond the group stages, they were desperate days for the national side ????.


5.) 20 May 2022 21:51:53
Well said sharpie.


6.) 21 May 2022 02:46:56
When this season is done, I'll still be an Arsenal fan. Sadly I can't read this site any more. Good wishes to you and yours,


7.) 21 May 2022 06:22:43
Why can't you read this site anymore.


8.) 21 May 2022 07:26:42
So you think it’s VERY possible the Sharpie? Or do you think there is a remote chance?

It’s the words mate - it’s not very possible at all and he knows it, if he doesn’t he has absolutely no clue .


9.) 21 May 2022 08:26:41
I hope you will read this Davy and return.

For me, my reply was meant as a joke reply to Banbury's MA quote, it obviously wasn't as funny in reality as it was in my head.

The reality is i'm quite chuffed with 5th as I genuinely feel we would have been punching big time in the top 4 and Champions league football next season.

I personally think 5th is a very good season for Arsenal under Arteta and I have no complaints about finishing there what so ever under Mikel.


10.) 21 May 2022 11:34:06
Yes 62 5th would have been good BUT we had numerous games in hand over Spuds and others and were points clear but losing 5 in the last 9 just isn’t acceptable hence my criticism of Arteta it’s been very poor, we had a very poor start to the season and a very poor end.


11.) 21 May 2022 14:27:57
Hi Banbury mate, my opinion is Arsenal Football club are very capable of top 4 and winning both
winning both Pl and CL titles

I don't believe MA is capable of any of these things so bearing in mind he is our manager 5th is excellent given the current situation.


12.) 21 May 2022 16:21:13
Oxford, if he says we have no chance, you lot will be up in arms, spouting nonsense like, "if he can't believe in the team why should the team play for him". And I'm not even exaggerating or trying to be funny.

At the start of the season, if anyone would have guaranteed you 5th place, most Arsenal fans, me included, would have said it was a good season. That's how bad we were. And here we are at the tail end of the season quibbling over the difference between 4th and 5th.

This team, the way it is, they over achieved.


13.) 21 May 2022 16:56:32
Sharpy I’m just saying ……realism - see what the bookies think, they more right than wrong - you no it’s not a very good chance it’s a outside chance at best .

Yes I have previously posted in the discussion we’d have all settled for 5th especially after the first 3 games BUT not long ago we were 3 points behind Chelsea and several points ahead of teams below and with several games in hand but we have lost 5 in 9 which is really poor when 4th spot and even 3rd was in touching distance .


14.) 21 May 2022 19:07:43
I think people are as disappointed in themselves as they are the team and Arteta, fans were taking about overtaking Chelsea and finishing 3rd even though 4th itself wasn't anywhere near secure, Arteta and the teams weaknesses were always there to be seen, it's just that people chose to not see them and pretend MA and the team were more than they really are.

I personally hoped for rather than expected top 4, even when we were really well placed i was open to the fact there was a longway to go still.


15.) 21 May 2022 22:45:25
You say that 62 but I bet you any money when you looked at the last 10 fixtures you expected more points than what we are likely to end up with

Palace Brighton and Southampton defeats are unexplainable and occurred right after the international break so what went wrong there? It was a bizarre run of results.


16.) 22 May 2022 00:01:27
If I'm truthful and memory serves me correctly Banbury mate I expected to beat Brighton and Southampton but Palace always locked dodgy to me, I definitely didn't expect to beat Chelsea or United and always thought Spurs under Conte looked a tough ask for Arsenal under MA, Conte really is a very good manager, Howe has made Newcastle a very different proposition and I never thought a win was the obvious result at St James Park.
I personally think many of us have seen what we wanted to see and chose to ignore anything that challenged the wave of positivity and optomisism that was flowing through the club.

We knew we were short in numbers, we knew we didn't have a Harry Kane or a Conte, we knew we didn't have Tierney or Partey and our squad was young and inexperienced and we knew MA was unproven like Conte and Tuchel, yet we still expected top 4

I think we fans set ourselves up for a fall and now blame MA for being who he always was, MA.


 

 

17 May 2022 17:08:14
We have one of the youngest squads in the PL yet I hear oh they were tired don’t give me that we haven’t had a testing season, so who is to blame, if we can’t be up for a CL spot and say we are tired then we have no hope.

Oxfordshire

1.) 17 May 2022 17:36:13
how many players have had C.V. though, it takes a while to fully recover saka not been the same since he got it on international duty.


2.) 17 May 2022 18:57:56
Of course sorry CV was restricted to Arsenal.

{Ed014's Note - the managerial incompetence defo was! ??


 

 

17 May 2022 06:22:11
The likes of Newcastle will finish above us next season ……watch this space.

Oxfordshire

1.) 17 May 2022 07:49:44
Next seasons top is definitely has the potential to be even more difficult that this mate I agree with you there.

I think we can safely say City and Liverpool will take up 2 of the 4 spots, as for Chelsea I think no matter what happens with a takeover they will be there or there abouts once again, if Conte makes it through the summer as Spurs manager and is still there in August and makrs it through to next May they will be better next season than this.
Yes Howe has done a brilliant job at Newcastle and you have to think they will be huge spenders this summer plus can United possibly be any worse next season than this?
And with West Ham and Leicester possibly pushing top 6 could be very difficult next season let alone top 4.

As for us, I think we will continue to improve one way or the other but whether it's enough to keep pace let alone be good enough to finish above 16 other clubs? It's a big ask of what is still a rookie squad with a rookie manager.

On the upside we do have 2 bites at the Cl 23/ 24 cherry next season and EL might be our best option for both a trophy and a CL return and no matter have we feel right now, we do have that EL alternative route next season we didn't have this season ????.
