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.

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 :-)



27 Aug 2017 17:28:36
Im embarrased. Im glad i didn't travel up north today. Wenger sits on his backside oblivious to the humiliation this team is going through. If he ain't bothered do you think the team are. He has lost all respect in my opinion from the team. There will be an exodus this week and wenger is to blame.

If wenger was to leave i think the players thinking of leaving would stay. he made arsenal and now his stubborn delusional decisions are destroying arsenal.


1.) 27 Aug 2017 17:41:42
And who will buy our players, they couldn't sell them before today so they won't now.



27 Aug 2017 17:01:41
Wengers team selection is bemusing to say the least.
Again he has put monreal in defence over a proper centre half. Mustafi is on the bench and he has gone with bellerin and ox as wing backs. Bellerin or ox are not left sided players we have kolasniac on the bench.

Upfront it was a perfect and probably the last chance we will get for lacazette and sanchez to start together but what does the bufoon do but put welbeck in the starting line up.

It beggars belief his decision making i cannot make any sense from it.
Ive got my fingers crossed im proven wrong but it seems wenger is holding the potential of this team back. that's why we got players wanting to leave.


1.) 27 Aug 2017 17:34:09
People still can't see the disarray we are in because of Wenger. We gave him a new contract and the cracks were wide open then. What do people expect to happen.

2.) 27 Aug 2017 19:19:14
Totally agree steve.

3.) 27 Aug 2017 21:09:57
Liverpool fan in peace. Couldn't believe it when I saw lacazzete wasn't playing today. He looks like a top finisher and I was concerned about him and Sanchez together. Reminds me of last season when he benched Sanchez, does he underestimate us or something, he's had a few pastings at anfield now but never seems to pick his strongest side?

4.) 27 Aug 2017 21:32:45
Agreed Steve.

We need a massive overhaul. by Next season we need to change manager and coach are a neccessity and most of the team. Its come to the point where a fine tune up is not sufficient . We have to change the whole make up of the club if it means we have to sacrifice this season then so be it. Put all our eggs into the europa cup and see what happens.
The only way we are going to attract big players now is crazy wages. gone are the days when players came because of wenger. they are now leaving because of him.
In my opinion cech ospina debuchy monreal merti koscienly mustafi xhaka elneny welbeck akpom sanchez giroud iwobi all have to go. Players like holding chambers willock nketiah nelson niles walcott should be squad players whilst bellerin kolasniac ramsey wilshere ozil lacazette should be starting X1.
We need to buy big and not just one or two. this is probably going to have to be 2 transfer windows. we are a shambles.
First and foremost we need to stop leaking goals. we need two solid centrebacks and a powerful holding mid. if we can get a mkhytarian aubaenyang malcolm or a mahrez that's fine but our problem is defending.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 00:28:32
Which coach do you want to change?



14 Jan 2018 13:29:03
. Me personally i would have had walcott for iwobi and ramsey for xhaka. A mid 3 of ramsey wilshere and say maitland niles would be intetesting.
I think its about time we fielded a team without our 2 big stars so that we can see what life without ozil and sanchez will be. I hope the pennys dropped with stubborn wenger about our two stars not signing contracts and he gets in players asap. Fingers crossed we can get ozil to sign but sanchez needs to go. team is more important.




11 Jan 2018 09:32:31
Yesterday was all about the result. Life without sanchez and ozil is going to be hard. Defence worked hard though maitland niles at times proved he isn't a left back. jack was running the show before his injury ( hope it is not too bad) and welbeck ran his socks off. Lacazette looks depressed. Xhaka had a stinker needs to be dropped. elneny when he came on looked lost and is always a hollywood pass away from disaster. Sanchez came on and went on his solo mission to save the game. he has no faith in his teammates. To see iwobis name on the sheet was shocking. The man needs to show respect to the club and after his shennanigans before the forest game didn't deserve to play. He made a few runs but no end product. What does walcott have to do to get in the team. The guy scored 20 goals last season from the wing. the game was crying out for pace upfront to challenge a dodgy chelsea defence. We need transfers and players contracts sorted asap. Otherwise we will have to get used to mediocre midtable football. Please wenger sort it out or step aside and let someone else do it.




05 Jan 2018 21:25:50
Looks like we will have to wait till sanchez and ozil decide when they leave instead of the club before we make a significant signing. That shows the mentality of this club. they will leave for NOTHING at the end of the season and then we will have to spend over 100million to get likewise all whilst not guaranteed a place in the champions league and its riches. There is no logic in this financially or for the progress of the team. Will anyone decent want to come to us.
Unlike liverpool who will not let couthinos contract run down get maximum money and have 100 million plus to spend on replacement/ s without weakening the team whilst wenger will get budget last minute panic buys. Demoralisong the team and fans.
Wenger moans about sky high prices of players yet allows his two star men run their contracts down and let them leave for nothing. Ozil, sanchez and their possible next clubs must be laughing their t**s off. For a club who had proud traditions we are a laughing stock to the rest.
How can a man who couldn't or wouldn't decide his own future leaving this team in dissarray last season sort out our prized assets. in the real world. wenger would be thrown out a business for negligence. For a board who turn a blind eye to results and success in return of millions in profit its mind boggling that they are willing to lose 100 million plus in todays market for nothing. beggars belief!
Wenger and board need to grow a pair and sort out every players future. He plays sanchez who doesn't want to be here but is willing to let a loyal walcott leave. i'm finding it hard to understand wengers thinking. I want players that want to play for the shirt with hunger and passion not to look good in the shop window.


{Ed0333's Note - a well presented argument mate I enjoyed reading that

1.) 05 Jan 2018 21:51:28
Agree ed,
Very well constructed and hard to disagree with.



04 Jan 2018 17:33:24
Before any transfers take place wenger needs to tell sanchez straight either sign a new contract or leave next week. This will allow us to get a proper replacement rather than a last minute bargain buy.
He should then go all out and offer ozil 300k a week to stay. The difference he makes to the team is more than sanchez. Against west brom we were flat and no imagination. With ozil in the team we are dangerous and a different team.
Wilshere deserves another contract aswell he has done more in 6 games than coquelin elneny or xhaka have done all season.
Ps. Maitland niles in centre mid with ozil and sanchez and possibly rMsey would be class.


1.) 04 Jan 2018 18:17:58
What happened at beginning of season, we had ozil and no sanchez against liverpool and we never created a thing. Sanchez this season has been involved in more arsenal goals than any player in the team. I also read a stat today he has been involved in more goals than any citeh player and hez supposed to be having a bad season. Ozil will not be here next season, he's off.

2.) 04 Jan 2018 18:46:53
I think you would get one answer from sanchez. ok I go thanks.

ozil I think we have offered him enough its more about where the club is going.

3.) 04 Jan 2018 19:44:17
Derby i think they both are making sure they do the best for themselves. That will be going.

4.) 05 Jan 2018 12:58:34
agreed steve. they saw the captain of the titanic in the film and thought no thanks.

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.

Nick t2 i am not saying just because walcott is loyal pick him. The guy if played regularly has a goal in him. He scored 20 last season from the wing. No player has the right to start its on merit. Would your detailed logic build a team around players who want to be here with new signings or build a team around players who won't be here next season. We are drifting away from the top 4 out of the fa cup an outside chance of winning the europa and our most likely is the league cup. The premiership is our main goal and yes nick t2 ozil and sanchez have played and we like i said are drifting away from the top 4. I agree ozil can change a game but sanchez has been pants he doesn't want to be here. Players you say nobody else wants that sit on the bench got us a respectful draw against chelsea. What did sanchez do when he came on. Nothing
So nick t2 i respect your opinion but don't knock someone elses opinion with embarassing or worst posts comments when there is nothing in your own post. These loyal players are the backbone of our team. Sanchez or ozil cannot hold this club to ransom. Wenger needs to act fast.

He will spend the whole of january on his knees begging sanchez and ozil to stay whilst shipping out all the players that want to stay. He will only spend big if they leave but he doesn't want them to leave your the manager either tell them to sign or get out and get in replacements.
Buy players that will make them want to stay rather than letting them dictate the play. He is in cloud cuckoo land.

Malaga gooner if you read my post i have no faith in wenger. him showing respect to the fans has long gone. His aloofness is irritating. The fans are the last thing on his mind its all about the money.
Showing intent will be a small start in getting some support till he decides to leave. Neither you or i can change that.

Totally agree the clubs transfer dealings are pure amateur. 2 players holding the club to ransom. Either stay and sign or F""'ff. The board and wenger keep the club in limbo knowing they can get something in january or let them go for free in tbe summer. He is bending over backwards for 2 players that don't want to be part of 'wengers' arsenal whilst letting loyal players rot on the bench. No wonder they are looking for new clubs. It must be demoralising for a loyal player on the bench watching 2 players putting themselves in the shop window. Wengers decision making is the source of frustation for many a fan.
He needs to make a statement of intent this week by buying readymade replacements and strengthing the team instead of playing cat and mouse with the fans. Give us some hope man!
