Well, turns out he really can't make decisions. He can't even name a captain. I give up

Arsenal players held a secret vote to help Unai Emery decide on his new 'five captains'. with Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil, Rob Holding and David Luiz all in the running

Embarrassing like our defending and tactics.

Please do something noteworthy so I can post something positive Boss - like resign?

Read Ormsteins version of events mate, sounds more like a plea for support of a player under pressure from the fans.
I doubt any kind of vote took place that's just social media or tabloid trouble making in my opinion now mate.


2.) 27 Sep 2019 19:02:55
On Twitter? That Emery consulted the players even though it’s taken this long and still can’t make a decision on Vice Captain. I still give up.


3.) 27 Sep 2019 20:05:16
On BBC mate.
As you know SY mate I would rather Emery wasn't our manager and Xhaka wasn't our player but I try to see thugs objectively and as unbiased as I possibly can.
True Emery Plays Xhaka regardless of his ability and performances and even made him captain before the season started all of which I totally I disagree with him on but I genuinely think today is about club and players rallying round and getting behind a colleague who is receiving difficult personal treatment from some fans.


4.) 27 Sep 2019 23:31:47
Per BBC : Emery told the squad of his decision on Friday, after consulting with players.

Per Holding:

Discussing Arsenal’s captaincy situation, Holding said: ‘We had a vote the other week so we’ll see what happens and see who gets named. ‘[We had to] write names down and then give them to the manager. He will go through them obviously with his input and then we’ll see what happens. ‘I don’t know [when the decision will be announced]. I think it will be in the next couple of days or weeks. I have no idea.

Sorry but the guy can’t make a simple decision.


5.) 27 Sep 2019 23:35:23
Why is Unai Emery asking his players to vote on who should be captain? It’s pathetic. Seriously. Make a decision!

When you start worrying about what your players think, you’re in trouble. And why does he need FIVE captains anyway?

Great points.


6.) 28 Sep 2019 08:27:47
Not much about what Emery does makes sense to me SY, the defensive side of our midfield and defence are worse now than before he arrived and that was the area that Arsene refused to address and ultimately it cost him his job.
Unfortunately we are with Emery righ back to exactly where we were with Arsene just waiting for someone somewhere to make the decision to let him go.


 

 

04 Jun 2019 15:16:06
If Nick Hornby is correct then it's another big mistake from Emery.

This summer, however, is critical. My sources inside the club tell me that the decision to release Aaron Ramsey was down to Emery and Emery alone, and that the player was ready to sign a new deal. Emery took one look at him and decided, clearly, that he wasn't worth the money being offered.

Even this seemed exciting at the time, reminiscent of Wenger deciding that Paul Merson wasn't good enough for Arsenal and shipping him out. "Paul Merson! We love Paul Merson! And he's not good enough? Bring it on! " And Wenger did. Unfortunately, Emery took a second look at Ramsey and apparently decided that he was, after all, an important part of his plans and indeed, the business-end of the collapse began with Ramsey's season-ending injury in Naples. Unless Ramsey's replacement is at least as good, fans will quickly resent the loss of someone who could be frustrating, but whose two Cup Final-winning goals, and a decade-long commitment to the club, have earned him Official Club Legend status.

Why did he jump to such a quick decision on Rambo. 😡😡.

SY4

1.) 04 Jun 2019 17:29:44
A player who is only ever available for Half a season SY? If you look at Aaron's league appearances each season over his Arsenal career it isn't good reading and certainly not someone you want to be paying way over the odds upsetting others fland putting pressure on the wage bill when he's only available for half the required period each and every season, for me this is a rare tick not a cross in Emery boxes.


2.) 04 Jun 2019 21:28:03
Your ‘sources’ tell you? Or every major news publication that has written anything about Ramsey’s contract withdrawal because Emery didn’t want to keep him? Do me a favour. Sources.


3.) 05 Jun 2019 03:54:40
SY you have to understand our scelticism, regardless of the content as soon as you start with "my sources inside the club" it just invites laughter. Give your opinion and leave it at that, don't dress it up as being some sort of prophecy.


4.) 05 Jun 2019 08:18:11
Is SY not quoting Nick Hornsby when he says my sources?
I'm not sure myself but I guessed he must be because I've never heard SY make claims that seem exaggerated before and he's been posting for a few years now.
I know he's a Tory and drinks wine rather than beer but on the whole he's usually a pretty decent and honest bloke so I think something must have got confused in he's post somewhere, either that or he's had to much vino trying to console himself about Teresa May stepping down:-)

{Ed001's Note - I thought he was as well g62. It definitely seemed like he was just posting up what Hornsby had said, rather than suggesting he had sources himself.

Not being funny but it is exactly what Ed002 and myself had been telling you as well, that Emery didn't want him from the moment he stepped foot in the door.}


5.) 05 Jun 2019 10:03:01
Hi Ed001 mate I'm glad you read it like that too, sometimes you've got to look at the poster and their usual nature to see past any misunderstandings and SY isn't given to making wild claims about himself but he does like to use quotes from others quite often.
Mate as soon as you said Emery wanted Ramsey out that was good enough for me, I've never known yourself to quote something as fact when it wasn't true, you are always quite clear in the difference between when you are giving your own personal opinion or when passing on actual knowledge and never shy to say " I don't know " when that's the case too.
I have my opinions like everyone else but when it comes to inside information I know zilch so when you share what you know with us then that is 100% good enough for me evetytime without fail mate.
After 7 years of using this site the credibility level is still 100% when it comes to reporting facts over fabrication and in my opinion there is no other football outlet, be it TV papers radio or social media that can get anywhere close to this site for reliability and credibility. A huge well done to yourself and all the Eds mate, that's some reputation you've built up and all you have to do now is maintain it, no pressure:-)


6.) 05 Jun 2019 20:42:34
I think the words both Ed’s used 10 months ago was emery didn’t like his comportment.


 

 

11 Mar 2019 20:52:20
Hopefully the clubs new strategy :

"Arsenal club chiefs have reportedly confirmed players who have two years left on their contracts and refuse to sign a new deal will be sold by the club. "

Having lost big players for nothing and been held to ransom by others - this new strategy makes sense and a we, come change.

Fingers crossed it works.

I assume that means contracts should be 5 years and very very rarely 3 years in length.

Well done whoever suggested and approved this move.

SY4

1.) 11 Mar 2019 23:46:22
Where did you see that SY? Seems like the club publicising that policy would hurt their negotiations, both with the player and with other clubs. Other clubs know we're going to sell so they don't have to offer over the odds, the player doesn't have time to be won over if they are iffy on a new contract. As internal policy, great, but as a publicly visible one, hmmm.


2.) 13 Mar 2019 08:18:21
I think it's both very sensible and very workable.
All it means is you start negotiations on a contract extention with 3 years remaining and if with 2 years left you have no agreement you listen to offers.
It works for all other clubs so why not us? Which other club loses players on free or is held to ransom like Arsenal have been and have done?
It's incredible how many players like Theo Jack Mesut have won contracts well beyond thier football ability simply by playing the club well in the contract stakes and what other club loses so many players for nothing?
Would Aaron have accepted 2 seasons like this season where he is a bit part player? I think he and others would leave earlier for a fee rather than see out 2 years on the bench which would lessen thier options at the end of the two years.


3.) 13 Mar 2019 14:33:18
I wouldn’t say Chelsea are as bad as Arsenal in regards to contracts. But there’s Courtois, Hazard, Hudson-Odoi just in the last season or two. United had something like 11 or so players at the start of the season who were entering the final year of their contract.

I do think it’s a sign of the way things seem to be heading. The price of top end and even average players is sky rocketing and the majority of clubs can't afford to pay those sort of prices. As such players who want to leave are priced out of moves and so the only way for them to move on is to run their contracts down. With the added bonus of being paid double what their market rate is in regards to wages.


4.) 13 Mar 2019 20:41:26
Clubs have to change the way players see running their contract down, if a player doesn't play regularly for 2 seasons he will struggle to find a club to match his current salary let alone double it.
Summer 2017 Man city were ready to pay 60 million and improve Sanchez wages but now in winter 2019 and Alexis would struggle to get Leicester City interested enough to pay 16 million and Match his Arsenal wages.
Football moves quickly and players who are hot prospects now can quickly get forgotten once out of the limelight.


5.) 14 Mar 2019 11:49:40
The clubs contract policy was woeful during the Gazidis era. It simply can't be any worse.


6.) 14 Mar 2019 16:54:33
I agree with the sentiment, but it has the potential for a lot of disruption. Not that I'm agin it, just noting that it's not the win-win it looks.


 

 

31 Jan 2019 23:08:28
Is Wenger in charge of this window for us? No defenders, no CDM but a light weight winger from Spain. 😐

That should sort out the second half of the season. #address our problems.

SY4

1.) 31 Jan 2019 23:25:20
We have too many defenders on the books and can't sign someone without shipping someone else out. We also don't need a CDM. Also Suarez can play across the midfield and on the wing, like Isco.


2.) 01 Feb 2019 08:39:03
Time will tell SY mate, my worry is in Dick we have found another Arsene who thinks if he ignores our defensive problems they will simply disappear by magic or he shares Arsenes mythical ideology of we can simply outscore our way to a title so defence isn't that big a deal.
My hope is he will come to realise like most fans that the biggest reason we haven't and don't take part in title races or champions league quater finals anymore is because the once legendary Arsenal defence is the missing ingredient.
Gary Nevile said at the start of the season that Dick was picking Xhaka every game in order for Xhaka to either come good and prove his worth or be totally exposed as an incapable weak link, personally I think this season and next especially we are going to find out exactly what we need to know about Dick and whether he's capable or incapable of doing what needs to be done to solve our biggest weakness that has held us back for more than a decade.
None of us know what Dick will or won't do in the future I just really hope he is seen to be aware of and trying to address what simply has to be dealt with by someone somewhere if we are ever to be truly competitive beyond 4th place trophy dreams.


3.) 02 Feb 2019 10:35:04
I think we are waiting for the summer transfer window to sort out our defence where more players become available and at better prices. I’m sure the club is aware of our defensive issues but the next transfer will tell a lot about the club and Emery.
I believe our strategy this window get some players on loan with option to buy as if they can settle and look to handle the PL than ok if not return the player and look for other option rather than a panic buy.
Liech was brought if for more experience and maybe teach Belerin a thing or two about defending, which hopefully in training is way better than what he is showing us on the field.


4.) 04 Feb 2019 16:10:32
A lot of our defensive problems start higher I the pitch. By strengthening our midfield with technical player who can both win the ball and hold on to it without loosing it, we will relieve the defense of to many tasks. You could see the problem yesterday when we were pushed to far in to our own box. And we couldn’t put enough pressure on city’s defense.


5.) 05 Feb 2019 14:04:35
Yes, i think our manager should have ignored the lack of cash available and taken a leaf out of our previous managers book by blowing "in excess" of £35 million on a center half and getting Mustafi. that worked out well.


 

 

16 Jan 2019 21:21:22

We need a shake up - show some balls Freddie. Hopefully you kicked in a door or two after that performance

Why do we need a Hollywood clown as a centre back - waste of space. Gives the ball away, falls asleep, gives away a goal a game and doesn't defend. Our worst player and that's saying something.

Get rid. 911 - please tell me you see this now?

Papa, Luiz, Mustafi - must go.

Bellerin needs to sort himself out

Granit and Torriera need to protect the back four or be sold. Discipline and more discipline.

Willock needs time as does Matteo.

Need to figure out how to play our forwards and get the bill forward quicker but not by 🤡 punting it forward as if we are Wimbledon. Granit needs to stop it also.

We need that energy we had for 20 mins in that game and we need structure. Drop them if they don't protect Leno - that's their job.

We need to sign a big CDM and a big CD in the Jan window. Two experienced LEADERS and make the CD captain as PEA isn't a leader or a captain.

Bring Keown in if Per is too quiet - we need to get our mojo back. I'm back to bring pissed off again because of my stupid club . I wish the players got half as angry as me abd showed half the effort I put into my job 5 days a week

I want to see train hard - defending drills and playing as a unit. Want to see someone loosing their rubbish with the defence and making them afraid to come off the pitch if they are having a poor game.

I want to see more triangles and quick passing to utilise our fast attackers. We used to counter attack at some speed when we had Cole, Robbie and Henry - now it's so laboured and no one making intelligent runs. Bellerins wack and out run the defender is quite childish.

Stop oissing around with it at the back and show for your team mate.

Man up guys or sod off - the cannons are heavy but not if you put the effort in

Freddie - be brave and be proud. Don't hide or be afraid of making tough decisions. We know you love our club.

SY4

1.) 06 Dec 2019 03:46:32
Firstly, we need to appoint an experienced manager as soon as possible.
Coaches with zero management experience should be ruled out, so no to Freddie and Arteta.
Vieira hasn’t been a success as a manager, Nice are currently 14th in the French League so no.
Allegri reportedly won’t return to management mid-season, so no.
The managers I would consider, not in order:
Pochettino, Benitez, Rodgers and Nuno (Wolves) . I do not know many of the foreign managers, so others may be suitable. Of these managers Pochettino is the stand out candidate as he is available, although I understand he is eyeing the Man U job, so we need to move fast.
All I know is that team needs leadership and quick, as we could easily end up in a relegation battle, shocking as it may sound.


2.) 06 Dec 2019 05:25:25
Can't disagree with any of that I'm afraid. I think this might be beyond Ljungberg though. This is the kind of mess that relegation battling managers get hired for. Bring in Benitez I reckon and do it soon.


3.) 06 Dec 2019 06:16:21
Freddie has nowhere near enough experience, actually he hasn’t any, has he? To be able to turn this around, we need someone with PL experience and very quickly.


4.) 06 Dec 2019 07:58:07
Nuno and Rogers would be crazy to give up what they have for what we can offer them in return and Poch is about as likely to join Arsenal a Lionel Messie is, no matter how many times you say his name it won't change his feelings on managing a direct rival of his old club or make him risk his reputation for what we have to offer him in playing staff or behind the scenes.
We are in very very serious trouble anf we genuinely can not afford to get our next appointment badly wrong.
This team is by far the worst I can ever remember seeing in Arsenal shirts, not the worst individuals but the worst ever team.
We can point out individuals who are not good enough and individuals who are talented but football isn't an individual sport it's a team sport and as a team we are done and dusted, players need moving on favorites as well as less popular simply because the weak mentality runs so deep within the squad.
We need 13x points from somewhere just to try again next season and the last 9 games show 13 points isn't a formality despite having 23 games to get them.


5.) 06 Dec 2019 08:34:21
It’s good to hear Freddie say

We’re disappointed to lose at home. The main thing is we didn’t show up in the first half. We were very passive and we had a chat at half-time, made a tactical change and all of a sudden we looked like a team. For 20 minutes or so we really pushed them, scored goals and thought we could win the game, but VAR was correct. That’s how we have to play the whole game. I said to the players that you can’t give away a whole half to any team in the Premier League. That’s what we need to learn from. ”

He’s had 2 training sessions which is hard and he goes on to say

“Like I said against Norwich, if you score the first goal you don’t have to chase the game, you don’t have to open up as much because you can control the game so that’s something that, in my opinion, we need to change that a little bit. We won the balls but you’re right, when they ran at us it often ends with a shot on target. We’ve had one training session but we’ll keep on working. “

So he sees it, has had no time to correct it. Organised them effectively at HT BUT does he have it in his locker to dig us out of it and is Per the right man by his side. Think Per is too passive when Freddie has no experience.

Get Keown in as Freddie doesn’t stand a chance on his own and were in trouble. Not convinced we will rush into making a manager decision so at least get him the support and a new CB and CDM.


 

 

05 Dec 2019 14:27:18
Watched the clip of the boys training with Freddie - hopefully getting our quick passing triangles back! That would be awesome especially with the pace in our attack. Seems stupid of us to slow that down.

Didn't see defensive coaching so surprised there but really liked the one touch training and a bit of coaching from Freddie

Good luck tonight - give us a performance to make us smile and see a vision of the future 🙏.

It's Fredies party to organise and do as he thinks right and if all goes with a bang and everyone has a great time he could be around a while but alternatively if it's a flop and people don't enjoy the experience then Taxi for Fredie please, ex invincible or ex ball boy don't careless let's see how his audition goes.
7 points from the next 3 and happy happy days 4 points, not so clever 3 or less " he's got no credibility get him out of here " :-)
Be fearless Fred it's the only thing you won't regret.


 

 

01 Dec 2019 18:16:17
Interesting comments

" Nicolas Pepe is a very good player, but I looked at what we did in training and what I see every day and that is how I judge it, " said Ljungberg.

Does that mean Granit, Mustafi and Luiz have a brain and quick in training?

{Ed047's Note - i literally have not a clue what any of them do that impresses in training but whatever it is they must do the exact opposite in a game

2.) 01 Dec 2019 21:59:53
hoping that Freddie breaks the tradition and drops a few big names because they aren’t up to the job and he’s brave enough

He was always brave and decisive on the pitch - seemed honest after the game, so hopefully by next weekend we will see “his” side. Interested to see that as he went with Saka over Pepe which was a big call today. Hats off for making that difficult call.


 

 

01 Dec 2019 18:06:47
Strange team selection today

Saw a few positives - our attack and number of shots. Thought we had a nice 15 / 29 minute spell

However, we also had a terrible 20 minute spell when we were all over the place

I liked the front 3 set up

Pull Granit out and replace with Torreira who had a nice spell when he came on

Hopefully both fullbacks are fit soon do we can see what defence Freddie wants to run with

He didn't have a lot of time before this game - hopefully get a feel for his best 11 next weekend. He wasn't happy with the game so that's a start.

COYG - let's get our mojo back.

Emery, good luck in your future roles. I wish it had ended better and you had won a cup with us. I will be honest I was not happy last season with you and would have replaced you after last season's friendlies and I would not have entered this season with you.

However, you seem like a good honest person and don't deserve the stuff you've had to put up with on line. You've exited with grace and I wish you well. Funnily, I was a little sad and empathised with you today as a sacking is not nice.

Amazing how people suddenly turned and realised the Emperor had no clothes on.

I really hope Freddie does well for us and gives us time to assess our options.
For me - I'd like Paddy and Keown as a duo. They would take no poop from anyone, they have the medals and right mentality plus club history to command respect. Fingers crossed.

In the meantime - good luck Emery and especially Freddie - we love you Freddie. most importantly - COYG.

I want my club back. Don't go missing again and keep your identity.

You know we joined the EU under a tory government. allowing the doors to be opened, right wodbod?

Why is Unai Emery asking his players to vote on who should be captain? It’s pathetic. Seriously. Make a decision!

When you start worrying about what your players think, you’re in trouble. And why does he need FIVE captains anyway?

Per BBC : Emery told the squad of his decision on Friday, after consulting with players.

Per Holding:

Discussing Arsenal’s captaincy situation, Holding said: ‘We had a vote the other week so we’ll see what happens and see who gets named. ‘[We had to] write names down and then give them to the manager. He will go through them obviously with his input and then we’ll see what happens. ‘I don’t know [when the decision will be announced]. I think it will be in the next couple of days or weeks. I have no idea.

We won the balls but you’re right, when they ran at us it often ends with a shot on target. We’ve had one training session but we’ll keep on working. “

So he sees it, has had no time to correct it. Organised them effectively at HT BUT does he have it in his locker to dig us out of it and is Per the right man by his side. Think Per is too passive when Freddie has no experience.

Get Keown in as Freddie doesn’t stand a chance on his own and were in trouble. Not convinced we will rush into making a manager decision so at least get him the support and a new CB and CDM.

Not angry enough. I would have punched Luiz and shouted at Leno for messing around at the back. Then I would have grabbed the two CDMs and told them where to play and how to protect the back 4. Get angry - yes but transmit that to a better performance in the game. Make more runs etc - don’t wait till the end to show your anger or determination 👊.
