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.

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.

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.

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 :-)

The clearout should start today. Half of this team doesn't deserve to play next game. We need to look for the future now and blood in new players.
2 defensive errors have cost us over the two legs.


1.) 03 May 2018 23:04:49
Yeah the old back line and goalie for a start need repalcing. Kos passed it now injury prone lost his pace, Mert Retiring anyway, Mustafi regular liability, Chambers takes too many risks despite some good moments, Bellerin physically too weak for me in this league terrible at crossing, Monreal again terrible at Crossing poor in the air. Ospina good stop stopper but poor commanding his box, too short. Cech just passed his agile best now.

Holding and the Greek lad look decent for the future and Kolasinac only ones worth keeping.



20 Apr 2018 12:33:07
It is for the best. Both parties the club and wenger can move on with dignity.
Announcing it now was the best thing wenger could have done. Imagine if results didn't go our way in the last few weeks the atmosphere would have been toxic.
Hopefully the emirates will be rocking till the end of the season full capacity giving him a deserved send off. I have been a big critic of wenger in my posts but i always said he should leave with his legacy intact and not hounded out. What he has done for this club won't be forgotten but arsenal were becoming stale. This should be a catalyst for players to fulfill the ambitions of fans and go out there and give 110 per cent in winning the europa league.
Looking ahead i am excited with a new era for arsenal.


1.) 20 Apr 2018 12:41:37
Great post mate. No player is Safe now and the new man whoever he is will be watching closely so any of our players who want to be part of our future need to start impressing the next manager now.
Personally I'm in no hurry for the new man to be announced as I think this is Arsenes time and their time will come soon enough.

2.) 20 Apr 2018 15:15:51
Our attacking array of talent is up their with the best in premiership. Our next manager whoever it maybe must address our defensive frailities. This summer is about getting in our new manager early signings in early and have a good pre season albeit the world cup. Once our defence and midfield is shored up we can compete for honours.

3.) 20 Apr 2018 15:56:37
That's next seasons task mate, get the defence and midfield organised and displined with whoever comes in then the season after that we should be thinking about challenging for top 4 again with real purpose.
Top 7 again next season would be acceptable as long as we can see where we are improving along the way in my opinion. A season with no thrashings would be nice for starters.



22 Mar 2018 10:57:10
It would be criminal if wenger let's wilshere go and keep the likes of iwobi at the club. Is it just the fans that realise jack is putting in performances every week. If ozil can get 350k a week what difference does it make to give jack an extra 20 30k. We have the money!
Jack is arsenal through and through. Yes he has had injuries throughout his career but lesser talents at the club have and have been rewarded with contracts. The new look wilshere this season has been one of the shining lights in this dismal season.




19 Mar 2018 22:57:21
Luke shaw would be a good buy for next season. Is being wasted at utd. Could be monreal replacement and good competition for kolasniac. Its all about confidence if we could get the same player he was at southampton would be a bargain.


{Ed0333's Note - I agree there’s a very good player in there somewhere.

1.) 19 Mar 2018 23:18:31
I hope he makes it wherever it may be .

2.) 20 Mar 2018 07:07:43
I'm not certain that he has the correct mentality and hence why Mourinho is going to allow him to department, as he hasn't lived up to expectations. I belive we can get another season out of Monreal and recently Kolasinac appears to have regained his confidence and form.

3.) 20 Mar 2018 08:42:33
Bastion schweinstwiger was Jose's first victim and Luke Shaw his second.
Jose likes to show his authority and he usailly finds someone to victimise and treat badly to demonstrate his power over players which is part of the reason he doesn't last long at clubs.
Joe Cole was Jose's favourite punch bag at Chelsea in his first spell in charge, I watched a game where Cole was outstanding and won mom award and everyone was saying how well he'd done but Mourinho tore him to shreds in his post match interview.
I spoke to my mate who is a Chelsea fan about it afterwards and he said it was just Jose trying to get him to improve even more, well it didn't work.
Pogba will be gone this summer to.

4.) 20 Mar 2018 22:27:15
'I'm not certain that he has the correct mentality and hence why Mourinho is going to allow him to depart'

Like KDB, right? Mourinhos opinions on player are only relevant if they're in a mourinho team. His fitness is definitely worrying, but there's a reason they paid so much for him originally. Would take a punt on the cheap for sure.



15 Mar 2018 21:41:57
Elneny come on to shore up the defence he spent more time in the oppositions 18 yard.

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.

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.

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.
