Apparently City are surprised by the talk of us announcing Artetta as our manager when we haven't even spoken to them and agreed compensation.
Whatever has happened at Arsenal we used to be so prim and proper in how we conducted our business.


1.) 19 Dec 2019 11:17:19
This could be because the way they poached our players in the past. Pay back I guess.

2.) 19 Dec 2019 12:48:18
I doubt it but if so how old is josh 5?
City have well moved on from the Mark Hughes buy Arsenal days and have no interest in any of our players now days.
I'd incompetence was the more likely explanation than pay back.

I'm not sure if Emery can't or won't change his ways but either way it's plainly obvious his ways his methods his tactics just aren't working at premier league level.
What would be the point in continuing with Emery few more games or weeks! What is going to suddenly start working that hasn't worked upto this point in time?
9 points over 26 games isn't impossible to make up but neither will it be a formality for a new manager either.

There are absolutely no guarantees that if we change managers things will suddenly come good but there is a genuine possibility they might under a different manager that simply doesn't exist under Emery.

We have a squad that has the quality in abundance we just need someone who can organise and motivate them into a cohesive team that functions to its full potential.
There is no logical reason to carry on with Emery, I've read people saying the club don't want to pay his compensation money and would rather let him see out his contact to save what a £3 millions pay off?

But that's just people being negative towards the board because I'm sure Josh and Co are more than capable of working out the financial loss of champions league football money v £3 million in compensation without the need to consult the world's greatest mathematic brains first.


1.) 10 Nov 2019 13:24:20
As usual, nothing to disagree with from G62. I have little faith in the board to act decisively. They have a history of dithering and fiddling while the team burns on the pitch. As you said elsewhere, the only language they understand is empty terracing. I would rather listen to us lose on the radio, than freeze my arse off sitting at the Emirates.

I would love to be wrong, but those hoping for a sacking on Monday. I wouldn't hold my breath.

2.) 10 Nov 2019 15:08:24
Hi Urban mate I think you've got it bang on, vote with you bum if your not happy and spend your time doing something that does make you happy until the club team and manager give you reason to feel they are your best way of spending your time and money again.

3.) 10 Nov 2019 19:24:06
I just don’t know how emery is making Managing Arsenal look like a difficult job? This season I honestly couldn’t tell you what system we’re playing. Yes Wenger was dated, but you knew what you was getting. A team trying to play possession football until an opening presented itself. Against Leicester, we couldn’t even string 5 passes together. No one knew where each other are, we got strikers playing like wingers, playing so deep against a team that plays with 1 striker. Emery isn’t connected to his players and he’s not connected to the fans. Sack this tactical fraud, leave Freddie in charge til we can get a manager with a clear vision.

4.) 10 Nov 2019 19:43:08
It's true ice mate we have no identity no structure no Arsenal way of playing that the players can get they're heads around and become comfortable with and most importantly good at.
Every game a different starting 11 a different game plan a different formation what chance do our players have? And of course they are only human so are naturally becoming deflated and losing interest and motivation to simply indulge yet more nonsense.

5.) 11 Nov 2019 09:58:15
Icy, you are so right. It was embarrassing watching us play what amounted to a back five against a side with a lone striker. And Gunner, spot on about identity, we don't have one at all. We even had one under Graham, albeit based on grinding opponents down and a very flat back four with their hands up every five minutes. I watched Liverpool yesterday afternoon, and even with some (one) lucky breaks, they looked every bit the finished article where we look pedestrian. The worst of it is, our front three/ four are the measure of anything Liverpool have got. But the rest is disorganised, poorly deployed, and yes, lacking any kind of identity.

The papers (I know) are this morning reporting the boards confidence in Emery. If true, I'm not surprised. Of course, we don't want a trigger happy board, but one season, and a third of this one, is enough to know. It could be a long frustrating season.

6.) 11 Nov 2019 10:25:20
In a game that’s about numbers and statistics, I’d be curious to know which one Emery is impressing in, that’s keeping him in that seat.
Ed any inside news on what’s happening? I just can’t accept the board are content with him because under him, Speaking statistically, we won’t challenge top 4 and we don’t want to bank winning Europe when we can’t hold a clean sheet.

{Ed002's Note - It was a mistake brining him in and as I said he was far from first choice. The club has gambled financially on getting in to the top four come the end of the season, and that remains the primary target. It is difficult to see anything happening before the summer when I suspect there might well be a change.}

7.) 11 Nov 2019 10:54:47
The papers are all quoting Ormstein Urban mate so it's a highly credible that is the boards position.
I'm pinning my hopes on the board using Ormstein as a deflection tactic and going to surprise us all as they did when they let the papers run with the "we only had 40 million to spend" story all last summer then bosh! broke our transfer record :-) I know it's not a theory you'd want to put your house on being correct is it :-) ?
Like you said yesterday mate vote with your bum and if your not happy with what's being offered simply don't accept it and find a more enjoyable way of spending your time and money, 20,000 empty seats is an extremely difficult fans message to ignore for long.

8.) 12 Nov 2019 06:49:18
I'm with you 62 fingers crossed 🤞.



08 Aug 2019 08:37:02
Arsenal and Chelsea have agreed an 8 million fee for David Luiz and Tierney will complete his 25 million move today also.

Where's Wesley? Could be a very busy day for you Wes mate.




03 Jul 2019 19:57:15
126 million for a 19 year old who has made 26 first team appearances?
I think we forget about the Lacasette to Athloco rumours now:-)


1.) 04 Jul 2019 09:27:33
Who’s that mate.

2.) 04 Jul 2019 09:29:36
Sell him for 250 mil.

3.) 04 Jul 2019 19:39:16
Felix Welsh mate.



09 May 2019 21:17:34
I know this week has taught us it ain't over until it's over but Valencia now need 4 in the last 30 minutes plus stoppage time, even we can't throw this away, can we :-)

Spring is here and it's worth spearing a thought for all the midges that come out at this time of year, they must be thinking " where's all the food ".




29 Mar 2020 13:16:09
For all the fellow oldies and maybe the not so old posters too.
I discovered Now 70s on freeview chanel 78 yesterday.
Some real classic tunes and very simple but entertaining videos from back in the day :-)
It's brilliant getting lost in songs I've not heard for years :-)


1.) 29 Mar 2020 14:31:37
Ahh, Day dream believer and seasons in the sun.

2.) 29 Mar 2020 14:49:04
Absolutely mate, sugar sugar by the Archers and Tie a yellow ribbon to Dreadlock holiday and come up and see me make me smile by Steve Harley :-) can't hear that song and not think of the Full Monty :-) what a film :-)

3.) 29 Mar 2020 15:00:47
Billy Don't Be A Hero is now on Mark mate, brilliant :-)

4.) 29 Mar 2020 15:15:08

The 70s was An epic decade.

5.) 29 Mar 2020 15:35:27

Who loves ya pretty baby, The four seasons not Kojac :-)

Thin lizzy- the boys are back in town 1976.

8.) 29 Mar 2020 18:57:36
Absolutely mate and I'd forgotten how good Mr Blue Sky by ELO and Another Brick in the Wall were.

9.) 29 Mar 2020 19:04:38
Rod Stewart . Maggie May.

10.) 29 Mar 2020 19:15:00
Hey John, do you remember the 1979 f. a cup song? I remember it like yesterday.

11.) 29 Mar 2020 20:07:37
Hey G62 I remember tie a yellow ribbon. classic. growing up in the 70,s i still remember some of the middle of the road music my parents listened to. like Perry Cuomo and Peters and Lee. the latter always had that great gag that when they split up Lee walked straight into another band and Peters walked straight into a lamppost.

12.) 29 Mar 2020 20:37:14
The 70’s may be the decade that taste forgot but I believe it has given us some of the greatest popular music songs so far IMO:

Free - All right now
Boston - More than a Feeling
Faces - Anything ( But especially Bad n Ruin)
Paul McCartney - Maybe I’m amazed
Traffic - Dear Mr Fantasy

And probably my favourite song of all time

Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street

What a decade for music. could spend another few hours listing more songs.

13.) 29 Mar 2020 20:38:57
That was a special final - at halftime and even with 5 minutes to go, we were cruising. name being etched on the cup then a late mad couple of minutes gets us and the cup engraver panicking only for Chippy to run down the left wing, nice pass to winger and a great finish appt the back post by Sir Alan Sunderland! What a day.

14.) 29 Mar 2020 20:53:05
Hi Mark, I can't think of it mate boy I'm sure I will as soon as you name it, frustrating but honest ;-) ?
Hi Epping mate my Dad was a Jim Reeves Fan while my oldest sister was into the Beatles big time so I grew up listening to them as well as the new songs on the radio which seemed like it was always on in everyone's house during all daylight hours.
Chirpy Chirpy cheap cheap and Please release me by Engleburt were they late 60S or early 70s? Roger Whitiker the last farewell was definitely 70s I remember that, I think :-)

15.) 29 Mar 2020 21:31:57
Sy4, I thought you'd like the 79 cup final.

16.) 29 Mar 2020 22:26:33
Better than Hammers and Ipswich finals : (.

17.) 29 Mar 2020 22:36:58
What was the song called Mark?

18.) 30 Mar 2020 00:35:31
Think it was “Super Arsenal”.

19.) 30 Mar 2020 10:42:42
Cheers SY, in that case I can't remember it all :-) but they were good days when both fa cup finalists made records and the build up to the final was an entire week long with evey paper and news programme building up the atmosphere slowly but surely into fever pitch right up to abide with me. Simple but very happy days back then :-) .

20.) 31 Mar 2020 00:17:09
When spring turns to summer
The first week in May
You know you will find us
Down Old Wembley Way
It's a popular place at this time of the year
'Coz everyone knows that the Gunners are here
And it's Super Gunners
Super Arsenal FC
We'll play the world over
And champions we'll be!

With the big man behind us we're safe at the back
When Sammy and Pat move up into attack
With David O'Leary and big Willy Young
Sending Rixy and Stapleton off on a run.

And it's Super Gunners
Super Arsenal FC
We'll play the world over
And champions we'll be!

We'll give of our best whether home or away
At the end of the day they'll have nothing to say
For when they're asked who's the man of the year
Our own Chippy Brady's the name that you'll hear.
And it's Super Gunners
Super Arsenal FC
We'll play the world over
And champions we'll be!

21.) 31 Mar 2020 10:24:13
Nice one sy4, I was pretty much spot on and couldn't be arsed to post it.

Day 28 of self isolating and I decided that the bits the hoover didn't pick easily maybe hadn't earned the right to remain after all and Prehaps it really was time to familiarise myself with all the little brushes and excessiries that came with the hoover when we brought it 4 years ago.
Suddenly pet hairs and other bits that always seemed to shift for my missus but not me were making there way into the dust compartment like magic until what will forever be known as the unfortunate incident happend.
A trainer sock I had been skillfully negotiating my way around until I felt the time was just right to pick it up off the floor suddenly shot up the hoover pipe like a rat down a drain pipe wedging itself somewhere in the middle of the pipe causing a serious decrease in suction :- (.
I have now taken the only sensible course of action left open to me in putting the hoover back in its normal place until the wife uses next and thinks she must have broken it herself.
Wonder what I will get up to tomorrow :-)

Mike Ashley really has no shame as Newcastle take season ticket payment for next season from fans.
As the country and world try to pull together I guess there will always be Hero's and Vilians emerge.
Mike Ashley has sent a clear NO CHANGE HERE message.


1.) 26 Mar 2020 10:25:54

There's also been a few articles about his poor treatment of sports direct employees during these trying times. The guy has no shame.

3.) 26 Mar 2020 17:38:35
It's important when we get through the other side of the current situation we remember and celebrate the countless hero's and equally give those who looked after number 1 a very wide birth Perfect mate.
When the current situation is over we should all simply spend our money with those who supported the battle rather than simply their own interests.

4.) 26 Mar 2020 18:30:44
The man's a cretin gunner, he opened his shops during the coronovirus and trebled the prices on everything, he then takes six hundred pounds out of people's bank accounts for next season ticket lol while most people are out of work or seriously ill, I like Newcastle as a club and the area but would love to see Newcastle relegated while he's in charge of them.

5.) 26 Mar 2020 19:06:50
Your bang on Raver mate he's a nasty piece of work mate, one of the many good things i hope will come out of this horrible time is that people's eyes will be opened to all we never really needed in our lives and all we would be better off without going forward.
I wish Mike Ashley no personal harm at all but Mike Ashley the business man and the way he treats people customers and workers alike we could most definitely do without having in all our life's.

6.) 28 Mar 2020 01:49:54
to be fair everyone just trying to stay alive, people pulling gym memberships as an example saying i'm not paying for that when it s not open, well there is going to be a lot of things not open when ya s try and go back, no one should judge at this time, if you like something support it, buy a voucher or something cause it might not be there when you wake up i 4 weeks! this does not exclude football teams either, if you bought a ticket for a match, don't look for a refund or in 6 months you may be looking for a new team.

7.) 28 Mar 2020 09:16:43
So what your saying Rick is people on minimum or low wages who might not receive a penny in support until June should keep paying to keep premier league clubs and players in the manner they have become accustomed to?
If those with the broadest shoulders can't pull a bit of weight now then maybe Prehaps it's something that doesn't deserve to survive once this world epidemic is over.
Football is a brilliant hobby but it's hardly a daily essential and the world really would keep turning without it.
If we've learned anything surely it's how we've got our priorities all wrong when we would all prefer to pay for season tickets or sky and bt subscriptions than we would to pay a bit more in tax to fund our health service and value those within it as they truly deserve to be valued.

8.) 31 Mar 2020 19:21:22
Am i the only 1 thinking also that if the season is boycotted that season ticket holders should get some kind of refund or discount for next season also. I know some teams are hurting but so are a lot of the fans and its time for some of the rich millionaire directors/ owners to step up and help out and i don't mean by 20% when you are earning millions a year.

Saka has time on his side much like Rogers said to Sterling at Liverpool " the next contract will not be your most important contract "
For Auba it's the complete opposite as financially this will be his last big deal and ambition wise what he does next will decide if he is to have any chance of ever challenging for or winning a top prizes, obviously it's unlikely he will be able to achieve those things at Arsenal at his age and what left of his playing career.

I agree Marshall, giving players a reason to think next season will be better if they stick around is the key to keeping most players happy.
Auba is 29? He doesn't have forever left in the game so it's all about what he wants to achieve before he's past his best.
If he really wants a real chance of champions league or premier league medals then we can't realistically offer him either over the next 2 seasons or longer so it's in his interests to leave, if he wants superstar wages like some clubs pay those and shouldn't make the mistake of trying to again either so it's best he goes elsewhere if that was the case.
If he's happy to stick around on really excellent wages because he likes life at Arsenal and is prepared to help us be the best we can be then I'd be very very happy for him to stick around, but having said that do we actually need to start selling players while they havr real financial value rather than leave for free at some point?
It's a trickyone and maybe there is a case for cashing in on older players whole we can too.

Hi DG I'm not saying he doesn't want to leave, he may well do but what I am saying is the papers are merely picking up on Artetta answers and making a story from them, something Auba confirms with " why do the speak about what THEY don't KNOW anything about "! The popular media are Just blaggers who are blagging 99.9999% of the time but every now and then like everyone else get something right by the law of averages.
It's good news about Saka 16 mate that's for sure mate.

I'd have been well shocked if Saka had left 16 mate, I think Auba summed the popular media up brilliantly when he said " why do they speak about things they know nothing about "
Ever since Arteta was asked on Sunday how important Auba was it's been non stop from the tabloids claiming to have inside information about his future, Saka last week, Auba this week I'm Just waiting for the rumors to start about Martinelli wanting out because he's been left out for Eddie in the last 2 league games.
