If this is the new arsenal then onwards and upwards.
We killed the game in 30 minutes. If we can show that intensity for 90 minutes with killer instinct we would have won by double figures. Taking the foot off the gas in the second half doesn't help. The goal difference at thd end of the season could make the difference of fourth or fifth.

Today was a buzz. I was on the edge of my seat watching Aubameyang, mhkitarayan, ozil and co. wreak havoc on the opposition. It has been a long time since i have been able to say that about Arsenal. If they can sort out their defensive incapabilities we could go places. A starting XI of:
Bellerin kosci mustafi monreal
Mhkitariyan ramsey wilshere
-----Aubameyang lacazette.




30 Jan 2018 22:20:49
Today was a reality check. For all the furore of mhkitariyan and aubameyang we came crashing back down to earth with a thud. This was meant to be the start of wengers new look team but we ended up with the same old stuff. Too many sideways passes no one apart from ozil was willing to go forward.

It looked rosy when our new "striker" monreal scored again to show lacazette how its done. But then the reality set in. Wenger has papered over the cracks with 2 big buys upfront but left the back door wide open for everyman and his dog to score. Yes they were two big buys but that gaping hole called our defence needs tightening.

Elneny tries but he is a squad player at best. We need a strong no nonsense centre mid who doesn't like to attack but just sit infront of the defence and two centre halves that are not a mistake waiting to happen. Mustafi and koscienly should be renamed jekyll and hyde. Bellerin can't cross a ball and has no end product and don't get me started on cech. can't save a penalty and makes too many mistakes he has had his best days at chelsea.

Iwobi was a passenger all game why he wasnt substituted at half time only wenger knows best. Lacazette is not at the races either drop him or get the ball to him faster rather than side passes to each other. there's one thing keeping possesion but another doing something with it.

Swansea were well organised and up for it and we played into their hands by side passing giving them time to regroup. giroud more or less played his last game and i hope aubameyang was busy doing his medical. get him to sign on the dotted line before he gets to see the game on tv. Wenger you have one day to sort out top quality defenders or leave at the end of the season.

It doesn't matter how many defenders come in with this manager. Its not just that simple any more. Its broken and that isn't the fix. A new manager is.



15 Dec 2017 08:37:56
It has been 10 years since we moved to a bigger stadium. We were promised the world. We could compete with the elite. What has happened?
Money has been available. the crowds have turned up albeit sky high prices and what have we got in return?

3 fa cups. a million excuses. running star players contracts to the end letting them go for free. selling top players. panic last minute buying. players without a winning mentality. players played out of position to accommodate others. too scared to drop players who are not performing. no plan b. and not having the balls to stand up to star players demands. and a team that capitulates at the sight of pressure from the opposition.

This club needs change and need it quickly before we become a mid table team.


1.) 15 Dec 2017 09:58:11
The thing was mate 10 years ago we were in the elite. There was two clubs above and beyond all others. Us and united.

2.) 15 Dec 2017 11:36:03
Not making excuses but I doubt they could've seen all this money that has come pouring into the premier league clubs especially city and Chelsea. Good post tho there really is so much wrong at our club.

The board has a massive decision this summer, they let wenger dictate to them last season whether he stayed or not, but didn't give an answer til the last minute so no one else could be lined up, they can't do that again in a years time they have to know whether he's going at the end of this contract or not so someone is lined up! The situation last season was terrible planning! But if he is going to see out his contract is he allowed to take on the major rebuild that is needed, replacing sanchez, ozil, santi, cech and probably a few others.

It makes more sense to step down now and let a new manager come in and spend the money on the team they want, rather than if he is going in a year letting him spend big on players a new manager might not want, seems insane. I hope he has the decency to bow out gracefully at the end of the season and allow someone with new ideas to take it on and be able to form a team that's fully there's rather than in a year get a team on long contracts they haven't chosen.

Either that or double down back wenger fully and give him a 3 year contract to take it on himself. But that hasn't worked well so far! But at least new players would know where they stand and who they are signing for. Not you might be playing under someone else in a year, but you know probably not! No one knows til nearer the time!

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.

7.) 17 Dec 2017 03:17:01
Very good point there g62 mate. Its very much like politics at the clubs now.



31 Aug 2017 21:24:35
I think we have to accept wenger hasn't got the pulling power anymore. Nobody decent wants to come to arsenal its a shambles.
Until wenger leaves this club is on a downward spiral. Will sanchez be worth picking if he stays. The players won't like it. Its simple if you ain't committed 100% use the exit door and eff off.

Wengers only good for keeping the directors happy. He couldn't care less if we don't win anything or our best players leave he is getting paid millions to fill the emirates trough with profits.

This club is the laughing stock of football at the moment. The media are in a frenzy and salivating at our demise.

I would rather lose wenger today and let someone new come in. It can't get any worse than it is now. We need change and we need it now.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 21:27:13
One word. Allegri.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 21:36:55
I've stuck by him and always said maybe it's not him. But today was the last straw. We really have f'ed up. And lemar scoring twice really sums up the day. Absolute joke of a club we've looked today.

29 Aug 2017 15:21:02
I think the best bit of business arsenal can do before the deadline is tell wenger he needs to step down for his own sanity and respect.
The only reason players are leaving is because of him.
The papers report that the senior players have questioned wengers tactics. If true i applaud these brave players for speaking up. This isn't about disrespecting wenger its about someone telling him he is in cloud cuckoo land with some of his bizarre decisions.

It shows that there is a passion in the players but the team structure and tactics coming from wenger is ruining this club.
At first i felt sorry for wenger now i am embarrassed for him. We have ex players and managers coming out of the woodwork saying - you won't know what you had till his gone - that is pure BS.

If he goes we will have fresh ideas and new start with optimism but if he stays we will have the same old excuses and drivel which will drive away fans and players. the odd occasional victory papering over the ever widening cracks and saying we were mentally strong and showed character has been over used.

For the good of arsenal football club he and his backroom staff must go. We can vent our frustation to the board as well but its wenger that picks the team.


1.) 29 Aug 2017 18:08:33
I don't disagree with any of what you say but Arsene only has his new contract with thr fans acceptance, if there had been enough support for change last season none of this would be happening.
It's going to take time to sort out but one way or another this has to be the last season for Arsene as Arsenal manager, it's far to late for this season so there is absolutely no reason to panic and do anything right at this moment in time.
What needs to be different this time is the support for change needs to be and remain solid first and foremost from the fans themselves, people need to decide what they want once and for all and stick to it rather than keep reacting on a result to result basis.

2.) 29 Aug 2017 18:34:18
Yet again g62. Give it a rest man.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 18:56:11
There was enough support last season. But wenger runs the club and has the last decision. If it was upto the fans he would have been out a couple of seasons ago.
Its never too late to change. This season under wenger will be mediocre unless we have a miracle and top players stay and new quality players want to come but i can't see that happening. A change is best for him and the players more importantly the club.

4.) 29 Aug 2017 22:47:05
TG remind me are you Arsene in or out this week :-)
I don't mind really mate, your entitled to your opinion even if it's about me :-)

Elneny come on to shore up the defence he spent more time in the oppositions 18 yard.




14 Mar 2018 17:14:08
With utd losing yesterday. Mourinho will be under pressure he is playing pants football and the utd board maybe looking for the future. This is why it is paramount arsenal sort out wengers future. With managers like ancelloti allegri and simeone flirting with the premiership we have to act fast or lose out to teams like utd if they react to mourinhos poor form. We made a mistake a few years ago by missing out on klopp who went to liverpool.


1.) 14 Mar 2018 17:23:04
And what has Klopp won at Liverpool, whilst Wenger picked up 3 FA Cups. Apparently he is as clueless tactically as Wenger.
As and when Wenger departs my first choices would be Simeone and Allegri, if we are able to get either of them.

2.) 14 Mar 2018 17:26:20
Was thinking the same, ed02 made a comment on another page that United are happy with Mourinho which is a plus.

Some how though I just can’t see Wenger letting go so in reality will it matter who goes where for at least 18 months.

3.) 14 Mar 2018 18:08:55
Totally agree Klopp was the perfect man for us and he would have got the Emirates rocking if anyone could.
What's Klopp won at Liverpool RG? 3 fa cups in 4 years? Sorry mate but that's a Ridiculous reply.
Look at where Liverpool were 2 and half years ago compared to Arsenes Arsenal? Klopp and Liverpool have come from way behind and overtook us in his first full season there spending how much to achieve that achievement in the minimum possible time? Then this season left us behind like a bullet train v tram and net spend for Arsene and Jurgen?
Liverpool are very much in the ascendency under Klopp while Arsenal are in free fall under Arsene RG.
Klopp for us was very much the one that got away.

4.) 14 Mar 2018 18:50:04
Agree gunner, including you, a few of us on here championed klopp. We would be in a great position now, if we had got him. A missed opportunity for sure, Liverpool are lucky but he would have had greater scope with us.

5.) 14 Mar 2018 19:21:20
Have to agree with you g62 (I don’t have to but do 😂) klopp was always the man I wanted but horse and bolted. Mourinho won’t be going anywhere soon. I fully expect us to sort out a manager this summer. Chelsea could well be looking at a new manager. I doubt Ancelotti will be their choice or accept an offer. Despite the doom and gloom Arsenal is a great prospect for incoming manager we are not a million miles away (although it seems that way) From the backroom staff and something I believe ed01 mentioned we are working on a better infrastructure behind the manager And I for one are hopeful that we can get back on track in the next few seasons. Ideally next season transition, season after full on assault.

6.) 14 Mar 2018 19:27:17
Steve I love what Klopp is doing on the pitch with Liverpool but it's his off the pitch attitude that impresses me every bit as much.
He told Sturidge he had to play through the pain of minor injuries and raised the bar for everyone at the club including the Kopp who he demanded 90 minutes of support from and why did everyone take notice of him? Because he led by example giving 90 minutes 100% effort on the sideline showing passion commitment and determination throughout each game.
If anyone could have broken up the cosy club at Arsenal and woken up the Emirates it was Jurgen Klopp.

7.) 14 Mar 2018 20:23:52
I think most of us think Jurgen was a big miss Sanogo mate but your right mate that ship has sailed and we need to learn from our mistake and not repeat it this summer too.
I do think it's a huge job getting up back on track and into top 4 contention again, maybe I'm wrong but I just can't see very much to build on from what we have, Sanchez has gone Cech Kos Monreal are all aging fast now which leaves us struggling for one single player who has consistently done it in an Arsenal shirt.
Maybe a new man will come in and turn us round much quicker than I imagine ( hope so) but even if it takes time I will back him 100% for 3 seasons even if the first 2 seasons show no obvious improvement in league position, i'd just love to see someone similar to Jurgen on the sideline who who is almost as animated as him and gets our fans and players all sharing his passion, i'd love to see the Emirates become a place full of passion commitment and togetherness both on the pitch and in the stands with everyone giving 100% for 90 minutes .



12 Mar 2018 09:55:06
There is talk of sending nkeitah and nelson out on loan in the papers. Wenger has a screw loose he should be sending iwobi and welbeck out on loan instead and give the youngsters game time instead of players who are consistently bad. This is what is so wrong with arsenes arsenal. You are rewarded for terrible performances. The one decent game in 20 and wenger will be smilling like a cheshire cat talking about their character followed by another 20 dissapointing games.
Its no wonder we lose so many quality youngsters who are better than most first team players when wenger will only play his yes men.


1.) 12 Mar 2018 11:01:45
Iwobi? I haven't heard one Arsene fan defend his constant selection which must say something, it is difficult to think of a less capable player currently playing regular premier league football
Danny? We see some really good games from as well as some pretty poor ones to but is Danny any different to Mesut Jack Ramsey in that department.
We have absolutely nothing to play for in the premier league but pride now and this is an absolutely brilliant chance to say to 3 or 4 young players " there you go, prove yourself worthy of being included in the 25 mam squad for next season "
If they do well include them in next seasons fist team squad and if they struggle send them out on loan next season, simples.

2.) 12 Mar 2018 14:18:36
Couldnt agree more, this is the time to give a chance to young guns.

3.) 12 Mar 2018 14:46:15
Nelson, Nketiah and Willock all have bags of potential, but need loan deals. Maitland-Niles profitted from his loan deal. The PL is so physical these days that it is extremely hard for young players to gain playing time at the top 6 clubs, without going on loan to Championship teams or lower PL teams.



11 Mar 2018 14:19:25
Why does iwobi get so much game time when there are so many other better players than him coming through. Wenger needs his head sorting if iwobi is the answer.
Mhkytarian having a good game plenty of effort.


1.) 11 Mar 2018 14:34:52
No one seems to know the answer to this, it's probably the one question on Arsene that absolutely no one offers to find an excuse for, no City millions no bad luck with injuries no naughty stadium not one single poster seems to want to find a way of excusing Arsene on Iwobi selection.

2.) 11 Mar 2018 15:28:09
Its wengers stubborness that will let iwobi play on for ever no matter how bad he plays and give players like nelson or gnabry or ox before nelson no match time.

3.) 11 Mar 2018 15:36:20
Yup that's what Arsene does.

4.) 11 Mar 2018 18:25:06
I still don't know what iwobi does. Him and xhaka get away with murder and are not premier league or arsenal players quality.



10 Mar 2018 16:19:37
Wenger needs to stick troy deenys comments about our last game against watford on the dressing room wall. Point at it and tell his players is that what you want to be remembered for. If that isn't enough for them to grow a pair and go out and win then they shouldn't be wearing the shirt.
We need to build momentum play our best players no one needs a rest we only have a few games in the league and europa cup left. Its do all or end all for wenger.


1.) 10 Mar 2018 17:09:04
Even if we finish the season with a flourish in the league and win the europa it would be to little to late for me personally.
I've absolutely 0 enthusiasm for another season under Arsene.
Sorry Arsene but I just couldn't muster any interest in yet another wasted season that's full of every pundit and every fan of every club in the country asking the same old questions that they and we have been asked for so many years running now.

2.) 10 Mar 2018 17:44:25
Its sad if we have to stick deeneys words down his throat, when they were ignored and probably true when he said them. When has avenging troy deeney been on our radar and i'm not sure we have the characters to challenge him on the pitch anyway. The truth is our players have no balls, that's for sure. They are wenger recruits and soldiers.

3.) 10 Mar 2018 17:46:37
I agree with you its a double edged sword. I want arsenal to do well but i don't want wenger there next season.
Arsenal come first always. The board need to reinvest the £8m plus they give wenger and get in someone who can organise a team and adjust to the team we are playing.
I think if you ask most fans there is 0% enthusiasm for wenger but 100% for arsenal.

Keeping sanchez is a big mistake. It sends out a bad message to the squad. It makes arsenal look desperate sanchez will be sulking more than ever. will players want to play with a player who doesn't want to be there. Wenger has again made a pigs ear of the transfer deadline day. The man does not know what he is doing and i bet most players in the squad are looking at each other and thinking is he for real.
The optimism at the start of the season has gone to pot
Thank you mr wenger.

Wire i understand its a start of the season but i'm not moaning or living with it and accepting it. I pay good money to see the arsenal and i'm not one to put my head in the sand and think we are not heading for another mediocre season. The potential of this club is massive some of us see it and some are happy with groundhog day. that's all it is mate.

I agree no player is bigger than the club but its the same for wenger he ain't bigger than the club. the club is always number one. If i had to choose wenger or sanchez it would be the latter all day.
It beggars belief he hasn't put the clubs interests first and gave the decision if he is staying or going. he is holding the feeble board to ransom and should let the club prepare for next season. Half the team being here next season depends on wengers decision.


{Ed002's Note - It is not the choice of one or the other.}

Jack is one of those players we need to keep. Reason being he is one of our bright sparks he attacks defenders. His forward play is very good his defending is improving he doesn't make as many rash challenges as before. His temperament i agree with could do with calming down on occasions that comes with age. You can tell arsenal means something to him he has come up through the ranks he fights for every ball unlike others. His one touch passes penetrating the opposition is something not many players can do. He is a fan favourite and barring any injuries a good run in the team we will see the best of him. The first people out the door should be wenger followed by iwobi. How he got a long term contract and are stalling on jacks ill never know.

Elneny was decent. But he has a habit of playing players into trouble with little flicks they aren't expecting of him in dangerous areas. He has no discipline as a holding mid he spends more time on the wings leaving us vulnerable on a counter attack and is always looking for a hollywood pass when he should keep it simple. i'm not knocking his work rate but its not all about that. A squad player at best.

If players are giving 100 per cent commitment fighting for every ball till the final whistle us fans would be cheering them on. The manager is motionless and shows no passion on the pitch. He is clueless and has no game plan.

Every fan wants the best for arsenal football club. We give up thousands of pounds supporting this great club. Maybe if some players and the manager showed us as much passion there wouldn't be a problem.
