Any truth in an Ozil bailey swap I would take that all day.


{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't think so.}

1.) 17 Sep 2018 22:17:44
Your not alone there crybaby, I think all non Arsenal fans would take that not just you mate.

2.) 18 Sep 2018 07:27:02
Your definitely right all the Wenger out brigade who wanted the club to fail and lose games will take him all day 😂😂😂🤭🤭🤭🤭🤫🤫🤫🤫.

3.) 18 Sep 2018 13:53:31
Are you bod baby 🤔 I’ve got guess who out now. Do you have brown hair?

4.) 18 Sep 2018 21:27:03
Crybaby me, browgun im an Arsenal fan, you are well off.

5.) 18 Sep 2018 23:00:28
I was sure he was jelfy sanogo, he said he's not though, I'm still not convinced! 😂.

6.) 19 Sep 2018 07:21:57
I’m only kidding bod.

7.) 19 Sep 2018 11:02:20
We lose on that - Bailey gives you pace but he's error prone and bad on positional play. Why else is Jose willing to let him go for way slower but positional sound defenders.
You unite Ozil with Alexis - electric chemistry. Nah.

8.) 19 Sep 2018 11:53:57
I’d swap Ozil with my old girl.

9.) 19 Sep 2018 13:52:35
That's not a nice way to talk about your wife crybaby and I'm not sure Mesut would be right happy with that arrangement either mate, have you tried wellies swappers anonymous they might be able to help you :-)

10.) 21 Sep 2018 23:45:38
Baby, based on your posts - you need some assistance. May be that swap at home works for you?

No deal for me - we need to figure out how to play with him not without him. First step = Torriera in starting 11.

11.) 22 Sep 2018 11:55:33
It’s taken 6 years and we still don’t know how to play with him when he’s on the pitch we have 10 men, I honestly can’t think of a game when we have played the top 6 or any decent team in Europe that’s he’s stood out,



13 Aug 2018 12:33:56
Don’t know about anyone else but yesterday was embarrassing, i am fuming with the line up, why on earth are we scared to play Man City at home, we should have gone at them like Liverpool did and Liverpool weren’t scared to do it either! I know it’s only one game but we are home and should have gone for it.


1.) 13 Aug 2018 14:08:44
Liverpool has a speedy front 3 - we only have Auba. Mkhi and Ozil aren't wingers - putting them against Mendy and Walker means they've to track back a lot making them sitting ducks.
We're not strong enough defensively to play a 4-4-2 with Laca and Auba plus most of our players from last season still lack confidence and have an inferiority complex vs Mancity.

2.) 13 Aug 2018 14:53:06
I don't think you can slate the team too much It going to take time for Emery to stamp his authority and methods on the team and take a couple of transfer windows at least to get all the personel he wants. As a squad overall we lack natural wide players all our midfielders are central based and our fullbacks are quite poor in offering delivery when out wide and often leave us exposed also. I think until we get proper wide men we should go to 3-5-2 (3-2-3-2 it be more precise) but focus on our central core strength and not use the fullbacks as wingbacks as that is our main weak area.

Use Lacazette and Aubu to pull out wide when required when attacking with their pace and energy to get any crosses in from one particular side of play. In my view there is no point is using fullbacks/ wingbacks to take up two spaces to try and cover a weak area when it would still be exposed anyway against the good teams with them in anyway as they are too poor defensivly anyway even in
back 4.

3.) 14 Aug 2018 07:51:56
Yeah me too mate, I'm surprised we haven't won the league yet this season, absolutely embarrassing.

{Ed0333's Note - WENGER IN!!!!

4.) 14 Aug 2018 19:51:51
It was embarrassing the line up just made me laugh.

5.) 15 Aug 2018 08:58:07
To be fair id say the reaction from most of our fans is embarrassing. Give it time even pep had to take time to work things out.

6.) 15 Aug 2018 16:34:36
Trust the process lads, I had questions about the lineup as well but Emery needs time to evaluate and put his stamp on the team's identity.

We literally could not have had a tougher opener (maybe City away lol) so let's get behind the team.

7.) 15 Aug 2018 23:16:40
Crybaby, I’m surprised the board didn’t appoint you as Wengers replacement, give Dick a chance, he can hardly see what he’s got in friendlies, the PL is where he we realise the squads potential.

8.) 16 Aug 2018 06:58:42
Patience is necessary as massive changes are taking place at the club.
In Emery's defence, the team I selected before the City match had only one change from the actual team selected.
Against Chelsea I would be more pragmatic and select:
Lichtsteiner Mustafi Sokratis Monreal
Ramsey Elneny Torreira Xhaka
Lacazette Aubameyang

The midfield would be far more workmanlike, whilst the twin strikers could cause Chelsea problems.

9.) 17 Aug 2018 00:36:15
xhaka out on the wing again? no thanks.

10.) 18 Aug 2018 04:20:15
Pretty sure Emery mentioned that he didn't like the passing when we were in 4-4-2 formation during preaeason.

Hoping to see Auba out wide and Laca through the middle with Torreira given a start.

Anyone know if Monreal is fit to start? If not, Lichsteiner would have to play there.

11.) 18 Aug 2018 07:04:11
@JW - In my line up, Xhaka wouldn't be played on the wing, he would be on the left of a midfield four, which is very different.
I agree with AA23 that Emery is highly unlikely to play 4-4-2, although I believe there is an argument in playing it against the likes of City and Chelsea in order to play with two banks of 4 to provide protection.
Assuming Emery continues with a 4-3-3 formation, which seems likely, I would expect a team along the following lines:
Bellerin Mustafi Sokratis Lichtsteiner (Monreal on the bench)
Ramsey Torreira Xhaka
Ozil Aubameyang Mkhitaryan

Although I wouldn't be at all surprised if he plays Guendouzi and drops either Mkhitaryan or Ozil.
So the midfield three and attacking three as follows:
Guendouzi Torreira Xhaka
Ramsey Aubameyang Ozil.

12.) 21 Aug 2018 14:25:47
I agree with this RG61, and I expect more changes to be made in the coming transfer windows. It appears to me as though the entire team is under evaluation at the moment, with no favorites being given special treatment.

I think we will keep with 4-3-3 and have the flexibility to switch to a 4-1-4-1 for greater protection.

My only question is Ramsey. We can't afford another Alexis saga and if a good offer comes in I would be tempted to sell, depending on what type of replacement is available. Bitter sweet for me, as AR8 has had great moments here but no one is bigger than the team.



07 Aug 2018 19:54:30
Kroenke better get his cash out before Thursday because i am not happy he’s getting the club, should have been him that went before Wenger. RIP ARSENAL.


1.) 07 Aug 2018 20:45:22
Funny, a lot of people think like that. let's hope we are all wrong because i fear for us. We have only gone downwards since he took us over. Where will we go when he has full unequivocal control.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 22:19:18
Why does it have to be downward and not upwards?
Why is it not possible that the Stan and Dick double act to prove to be yet another turning point that sees Arsenal re-emerge as contenders.
You've got two choices boys, spend all next season looking for all possible reasons to support your doom and gloom predictions or be open to the fact that you could possibly be wrong and all might just turn out ok.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 23:01:20
Gunner, i think Emery will be pissing in the wind but i'm hopeful he can improve us. The kronk situation is far from ideal, i'm going on his record and KSE lack of real success. I never wanted him in the beginning but now he has assumed full unchallenged control, it does not make me think automatically, this is for the best. I don't see what he is going to do that he has done before with us or any other team he possesses, that is going to be for the better. He has blatantly admitted, he didn't buy arsenal to win trophies. I think its a bad day for arsenal football club as a force on the pitch. Still i could be completely wrong andd he has ambitions to really make us an elite world super power, that puts performance on the field as the top priority.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 00:31:21
Maybe his son will have a different idea of what Arsenal are to be?

5.) 08 Aug 2018 02:15:57
I cannot see much change as Kroenke takes full ownership of the club. The club has been run reasonably well whilst he has been the major shareholder and I don't expect much to change.

6.) 08 Aug 2018 04:59:17
Kroenke's other teams:
LA Rams (left St Louis on the hook for a partially completed stadium after years of terrible performances)
Denver Nuggets (missed out on playoffs last 5 years in a row)
Colorado Avalanche (6 consecutive first place finishes and 2 Stanley Cup wins before Kroenke took over; consecutive failures to make it past quarterfinals or even qualify for playoffs after Kroenke took over)

Let's be honest, the only thing Kroenke cares about is skimming funds off the top. Whether he cares about the club as anything but a financial entity - which TV money virtually guarantees, by the way - is very obviously a big no.

{Ed0333's Note - you have to give the guy the benefit of the doubt. He’s gonna be in soul charge now maybe he'll surprise you? At least give him a chance before you malign him.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 08:42:00
I was Arsene out simply because he had demonstrated time and again he had lost touch with what it takes to be competive in the modern game.
If Arsene had stayed on this season I would felt extremely negative about the season ahead but if he'd stayed on and accepted help by bringing in a top quality number 2 with new ideas Arsene was prepared to accept and work with them my attitude would have been different.
Stan and Dick haven't failed repeatedly yet simply because along with the new backroom they form a brand new set up that unless you are phycic or time traveler from the future none of us know what they can or can't produce together.
Change is here and we need to give it a chance not simply dig our heals in because we don't like the who owns the club.
We can look for the improvements that come this season or we can look for the same old problems and take great pleasure in highlighting everything that goes wrong as being down to Stan, it's a personal choice but I can't see the point of wanting change only to be negative about it without giving it a chance first.

8.) 08 Aug 2018 08:06:14
Ed0333 - don't have much of a choice but to trust him, but he was effectively in sole charge before anyway. Usmanov was not allowed at board meetings and given no input, and Kroenke had virtually unrestricted power as he controlled the rest of the shares up to 97%. As you say, I don't know how it will turn out, but my gut feeling is highly negative.

{Ed0333's Note - I understand your scepticism but until he’s given the opportunity to display his true colors it’s folly to label him as the big bad wolf. Listen I’m not saying he’s gonna turn into Sheikh Mansour overnight and start spending billions on galacticos but he may well surprise you mate.

9.) 08 Aug 2018 09:17:49
We've never seen Stan without Arsene calling the shots and advising him.
Now we have Dick and Sven working with Stan and Stan junior so let's wait and see.
It's a completely different set up now and a world away from Arsene trying to be a jack of all trades running the club virtually single handedly.
We should give change a chance especially those of us for moaned kicked and screamed for years for it to happen.

10.) 08 Aug 2018 20:43:54
I agree 62, how can we possible condemn what we have before we’ve seen it perform . I think a few are being a tad harsh and impatient.

11.) 09 Aug 2018 00:51:45
I should also clarify that the club no longer being an entity that was at least in part fan owned and fan accountable is partly why I'm depressed. Stan as an owner won't change much compared to Stan as majority shareholder, but something we had a real stake in, something we co-owned, is now gone and it is a little sad.

12.) 08 Aug 2018 09:52:08
People saying it might be different, the man isn’t going to change just because he has full control it’s going to be worse, I hope he does change and pump millions but I can’t see it.

13.) 09 Aug 2018 16:57:14
Hang on a minute CB, what’s going to be worse, we’ve spent 70 odd million more than some clubs . He doesn’t control what happens on the pitch .

We were rubbish last year because of one man.

14.) 10 Aug 2018 14:49:20
Bit harsh on Mustafi there BG, he wasn't / that/ bad.



15 Jun 2018 22:13:06
Xhaka signs a new long term contract looking forward to seeing him play higher up the pitch.


1.) 16 Jun 2018 06:23:55
Absolutely, having seen him play further forward for Switzerland he looks a far better player than playing in a deep defensive midfield role, which didn't suit him. I hope the Torreira signing happens and I would like to see us sign Nzonzi or Fellaini to play alongside him, with David Luiz forming a CB partnership with Sokratis.
Lichtsteiner Sokratis Luiz Monreal
Torreira Nzonzi
Mkhitaryan Ozil Xhaka

Bellerin Holding Mavropanos Kolasinac
Maitland-Niles Elneny
Ramsey Wilshere Welbeck

I know the above teams won't happen, but wouldn't it be great if they did.

2.) 16 Jun 2018 09:17:30
Xhaka as a LW RG? Seems a bit odd to me. He's probably going to play more alongside Torreira than in front of him, and slightly behind Ozil.

3.) 16 Jun 2018 09:36:24
You are nuts if you want to play Xhaka on the left of a forward 3 behind a striker. I really like him as a player but that would be an even worse position for him that defensive midfield.

4.) 16 jun 2018 10:01:02
lool xhaka left mid? are you kidding me? this must be a joke!

5.) 16 Jun 2018 10:41:26
Even I wouldn't want him out there! haha! Sitting in front of Torreira if we have 3 in the middle or alongside him would be ideal :)

6.) 16 Jun 2018 11:03:52
Xhaka can.
Simple as that :-)
I saw the De Gea mistake last night and thought " Xhaka would have held that plus saved the penalty and that free kick? He'd have simply headed it off the line.
Left of midfield is a doddle for super Xhaka:-)

7.) 16 Jun 2018 12:14:42
Lots of pace and width in that side too, the fresh faced youthful fullbacks will be fine with no help tracking back.

8.) 16 Jun 2018 19:20:12
It amuses me the lack of knowledge shown in respect of Xhaka, who was captain of Borrusia Monchengladbach at the age of 22, who has played over 60 matches for Switzerland, who Wenger started in almost every league match last season and who Emery decided to extended his contract as soon as he arrived at the club.
I first saw Xhaka playing on the left hand side of the Swiss national team and he looked quality. Alas, he is one of many players that were played out of position by Wenger and his natural aggressive game was not allowed to flourish under him, nor was his shooting ability. Imagine, not that it would have happened, if Roy Keane was not allowed to play his aggressive style, nor allowed to shoot. He would have been a shadow of the great player he was. Many of you are the same fans that rate Chambers! Who was relegated whilst at Middlesbrough and is a truly average centre back. Our away record was dire last season and our fullbacks received virtually no cover, whilst a player such as Xhakae would have provided defensive cover on the left and supplied ammunition for the central attacking player. We have yet to see how Emery will set up next season, but he has stated that Xhaka will be an important part of the team. I believe you will see a very different player under Emery.

9.) 16 Jun 2018 19:47:58
A different player, possibly. A left winger, definitely not.

You’ve tried to cover a bad post by a long winded post. Not working mate. He’s not a left winger. He’s slow in the middle of the pitch so will have nowhere near enough pace out wide.

10.) 16 Jun 2018 21:05:06
At no point did I state Xhaka should be played as a left winger. I stated that he should be played further forward than the defensive midfield role he played under Wenger. The player himself considers his best position is as a 'fake' number 10, sitting slightly deeper than a number 10.
I seem to recall that Emery is considering playing a 4-1-4-1, which would be interesting and could mean playing Torreira (if signed) , behind a midfield four, which could contain Xhaka, who Emery considers an important part of the team.
My post was not long winded, it simply expalined my thoughts correctly and not some concocted, incorrect nonsense that I suggested playing Xhaka as a left winger. Clearly reading and interpretation of my comments are not the strong points of thiose that responded so incorrectly and seem incapable of reading more than one line of basic English text.

11.) 16 Jun 2018 22:04:05
RG unless you have spoken to Dick personally, he said xhaka was an important member of the squad. Lol.

12.) 16 Jun 2018 22:05:49
For me, i think xhaka should be left back, in the changing room. Lol.

13.) 16 Jun 2018 22:29:06
Fair points there RG my only point with chambers is he was quite good before he joined us as many players as you say a new manager who will actually let us tackle in training might change our opinions on Young chambers I think he has promise imo and I completely agree with you about xhaka 100% ;)

14.) 16 Jun 2018 22:36:26
Whst do Poch and Toby think of him RG :-)

15.) 17 Jun 2018 04:48:22
Steve r - Emery extended Xhaka's contract soon after becoming manager and it was reported on the official Arsenal site that Emery considers Xhaka an important part of the squad.
G62 - Alderwierald is a friend of mine, so I can ask him. I have met Pochettino on a few occasions, but do not know him well enough to ask his opinion of Xhaka.
I live next door to a footballer in Hadley Wood, an area where many Arsenal and Tottenham players live and have lived. Having a serious football background I have had many friends who have played professional football and some that are still playing. The late David Rocastle was a friend of mine, as was his agent at the time Jerome Anderson, who I played football with. I also know football agents Jon and Phil Smith who I played football with in the 1980's 90's. Others are Jobi McAnuff (the former Reading captain, now at Orient) . Dale Barton (played a couple of times for West Ham in the 1980's before moving onto Aldershot and Reading) . There are many others, but these are my closest friends.
If you truly believe Xhaka is so poor you clearly haven't a clue about football. He featured in almost every PL match under Wenger, was made captain of BM in his early 20's and has over 60 international caps for Switzerland. He has won trophies. He clearly sin't suited to playing as a DM, but as I stated he should look far better played in a more advanced role, nit as a left winger, which I never stated.

16.) 17 Jun 2018 04:54:15
XCC - Yes Chambers looked an excellent prospect as a young RB at Southampton and I seem to recalll was a serious threat to Nathan Clyne for the RB spot iin the team. He looked promising in his first few matches for Arsenal at RB, but then like so many players in the second half of Wenger's time at the club, his career went backwards and was ultimately turned into a CB. He went on loan to Middlesborough for a season and was part of the team that was relegated. I simply see nothing special in him and ould let him move on, especially if we can get the sort of fee reported in the papers.

{Ed001's Note - Chambers was a centre back who played at right back to gain experience, the same way as Joe Gomez has been at Liverpool. He was only cover at right back, it was never his position.}

17.) 17 Jun 2018 05:20:23
RG. you’re full of shizzle. The end.

18.) 17 Jun 2018 05:21:11
Hi Ed001 - I belive there is some confusion as to Chambers position, as he has played at RB, CB, in midfield and even as a more advanced right-sided player in his youth. Time may be playing tricks, but I seem to recall signing him after he had some outstanding performances at RB for Southamton, covering for Clyne and I stand to be corrected, I recall him playing for the senior England team at RB. I was under the impression that the transformation to CB, came after some unconvincing performances for Arsenal at RB.

{Ed001's Note - if you say so. Your impression was clearly wrong as he played a number of times at centre back for Southampton first team.}

19.) 17 Jun 2018 05:39:40
Thank you Ed.
I did a little research and came across the following on the official site, which proves that he has played in different positions and thus neither of us are worng, perhaps both of us are right!

Report on the official Arsenal site when we signed Chambers:
Tall and athletic, the versatile youngster started his career in midfield, but established himself at right back last season and can also play in the centre of defence.

{Ed001's Note - where they start their career is irrelevant. Jamie Carragher started as a striker, but no one ever imagined he would become one. Gerrard got into the Liverpool team at right back initially. Kolo Toure made his Arsenal debut on the wing. You will find coaches will put them in positions out on the flanks, if possible, to lower risk of their performance causing problems if they mess up.}

20.) 17 Jun 2018 08:50:58
Bellerin sokiritis soyunchu monreal
Ramsey xhaka
Miki ozil

Leichsteiner mavrapanos holding kola
Niles wilshere
Iwobi welbeck

Emery's best bet may be to try to replicate how psg played. unfortunately that formation was based around the quality of their wingers and how complete cavani is as a cf. Miki and ozil are great creative players but don't seem to have the workrate.
If i had the choice i'd go with this
Sokiritis soyunchu
Bellerin torreira monreal
Xhaka ramsey
Laca auba

Anyone who doesn't press and give
100 can't get into this side and the strikers and wing backs will have to work incredibly hard. I just believe laca and auba as a partnership with ozil in the hole could be devastating.

21.) 17 Jun 2018 10:02:14
Well RG I think the fact that you not only have your own private plane but also one that gives you the ability to be in two countries at the very same time really hammers home your authority to be deciding what others know and don't know about football:-)
Oh by the way you never did answer my question about which team you very successfully were manner of?
Must have slipped your busy mind time reply to that one :-)
Especially when it's so easy to debunk :-) I've a feeling you might side step those one RG mate?

22.) 17 Jun 2018 13:52:33
He's got his own plane? 😂 😂 😂.

23.) 17 Jun 2018 19:54:46
Yeah but, do you know dean gaffney?

24.) 17 Jun 2018 21:42:47
RG, you keep digging big holes for yourself, keep digging pal and you might end up in australia. don't tell me i know nothing about football because i don't rate xhaka because there are a lot more like me and a lot less that thinks like you. Its opinion and most people i talk to agree with me. They must all be wrong and you must be right because RG says so. I call it as i see it and i don't have to name drop and lie to try and make myself look good. Just stick to opinion and you are a good poster. Its the big i am bull shizzle that ruins it.

25.) 17 Jun 2018 21:46:53
Eden, i have my own plane. I've just used it to take a shaving off my door because I've just fitted a brand new thick pile carpet and couldn't shut the door.



14 Jun 2018 21:28:41
Do you have any idea what winger we are after?


1.) 14 Jun 2018 22:55:16
Monreal and Belerin will be after them all from August onwards:-)

2.) 15 Jun 2018 08:09:35
Gelson Martins by the sounds of it but there are other clubs queuing up. We won't pay his £50m fee and will very much wait to see if he is successful in somehow terminating his contract so we can have him for free. Sporting won't allow 4 players worth a combined £80m leave that easily.

Can’t see why we won’t give nelson a shot on the right wing.




07 Oct 2018 14:44:48
Haven’t got a bad word to say about arsenal today I thought the midfield two were outstanding today 1 st to everything bigger test to come but iam going to enjoy it.




22 Sep 2018 11:53:05
Big game today iam going for 3nil Lacazette 2 goals Ozil one.


1.) 22 Sep 2018 13:05:14
You mean tomorrow - right.

2.) 22 Sep 2018 15:30:02
I'm going 3 1 or 3 2 and would be delighted with either.
Just can't see where a clean sheet is coming from in the foreseeable future but as long we keep scoring more it will do for now.
Obviously the ideal is to be both free scoring and equally difficult to score against but while we are waiting for that to come more wins than draws and losses and lots of goals will do.

3.) 22 Sep 2018 16:22:34
5 - 2 tomorrow.

4.) 22 Sep 2018 16:28:47
The defence has slowly started to improve.

5.) 22 Sep 2018 18:44:06
Hope so Sanago mate, there will definitely be games where scoring more than once if at all will be impossible so we will need the defence to stand up and be counted in order to get anything from some of the toughest games.

6.) 22 Sep 2018 21:34:48
Sy4 yes I meant Sunday.

7.) 22 Sep 2018 21:38:17
4/1 for me we can't seem to keep a clean sheet.



10 Sep 2018 10:23:39
What are everyone’s predictions for the weekend 1.2 win hopefully for me.


1.) 10 Sep 2018 10:33:50
2 3 for me, think high scoring ganes might be the fashion for a while, as long as they are mostly wins I don't suppose too many will complain about that:-)

2.) 10 Sep 2018 11:44:02
We need to keep true winning run going, so 1-3 to us.



03 Sep 2018 16:16:02
Two defeats to our rivals and two wins, the defeats we could have done better, and the ones we lost I think we were lucky to win dreading the next 4 games.


1.) 03 Sep 2018 17:12:01
I’m dreading your next four posts 😉.

2.) 03 Sep 2018 17:55:43
What’s wrong with you, we were lucky why?
Yes it wasn’t a pretty win but we’ve got the 3 pointe and I don’t think it was luck, we weren’t given a goal by luck.
You’ve got to give this team some time to get used to the new plan.
Yes we are not perfect and we are work in progress and if next summer the main issues not addressed than I think a loylt of fans will join your party.

CB is so anti Arsenal it’s untrue

CB our results against City and Chelsea were an improvement compared to last year .

I’d rather be lucky to win than unlucky to lose

It’s about gettting 3 points and we got them.

I think you waiting you breath on him guys.

Went to my first game at the Emirates for the Westham game and the thing which struck me most was the prevalence of this sort of negative attitude among the fans around me. Yes everyone should be entitled to their opinion on the state of the team etc but some people seem to want to bitch and complain about the team more than to enjoy watching them play!

6.) 03 Sep 2018 19:30:43
I actually thought we weer unlucky to lose to Chelsea, if you were awarding it on points then I think Chelsea probably pipped it but it would certainly be a split decision.
Both sides looked chaotic at the back and the game could easily have gone either way.
City? Well the best team in England in our very first game under Dick who didn't park the bus in order to get a fan pleasing result but instead put operation rebuild Arsenal straight into action and even then we didn't get thrashed.

I am not blown away with our changes - especially defence and not adapting to our strengths or changing our weaknesses but I am pleasantly surprised with the extra KMs the teams running, clearly practiced taking corners as well as our offensive play. Against Chelsea, I thought we were unlucky to not get a draw. I was pleased with the first half performance and numbe of chances created. Less said about the City game the better. The other two games - thought there were enough positives outside of 6 points to give us hope. There’s light at the end of the tunnel, it’s not a train coming towards us and it’s a long tunnel.
Surely enough to keep our spirits up while enough issues that we can still have a good old moan! Everyone likes a moan :)

On a side note - read a short article by Andy Gray saying he bets it difficult for Emery to get his point across at halftime due to the language barrier. Another thing we should consider as well as the lack of flexibility in the squad ( lots of same type players ) .

COYG!,! 👊.

We know the defence is all over the place the pundits know the defence is all over the place and I'm sure Dick knows too but he sticks to his system why?
I think it's because he knows it will take time for his ways to become the players ways and accepts there will be mistakes made during the transition from the old to the new.
If it was me I'd do it different to Dick but maybe if we all knew his long term plan we'd accept short term puzzlement for long term premier league contention.
Arsene left us a decade without a credible defence I'm prepared to give Dick the benefit of a whole season to sort it at least.

9.) 04 Sep 2018 07:39:00
I am not anti arsenal I just don’t see any improvement Banbury and that’s a worry!

10.) 04 Sep 2018 08:38:32
It think you are a little bit anti Arsenal CB and have been ever since Arsene went.

11.) 04 Sep 2018 14:13:13
Why on earth would I be anti arsenal when I support them, makes no sense, I just don’t see any change In fact I think we are worse, but that’s just me.

12.) 04 Sep 2018 16:40:00
No CB its not just you, its every arsenal fan who’s as stubborn as wenger and didn’t want a change,
So you are ok with goving arsene another 3 years contract of the same rubbish not can’t accept the new manager start to the season when he inherited all of arsene’s rubbish buys, which he has to work with.
Give him a chance at least until the new year and then maybe you can judge Emery which is still very short time.

13.) 04 Sep 2018 17:25:31
Moe, he never even gave him the first game, so fat chance of him having the patience to give him while the new year. Most people actually appreciate the job Dick has, after being left with the shambles wenger left behind, which most people can see. Instant impact is and never was being realistic to sane and sensible people. I think most posters on here are on board with what is going on, success or failure.

14.) 04 Sep 2018 19:11:51
The issue with the defence is the line is that high and the wing backs are so far forward due to lack of natural width, that the counter attack is always on, Emery needs to start playing a anchor to make that back 2 into a 3 whenever attacking, or ride it out until January and buy quicker smarter, more tactically switched on than the 2 we are currently playing.

15.) 04 Sep 2018 19:52:44
I don’t want to jump in and beat what Wenger left and nor do I want to use Wenger as a scapegoat. If crybaby is suffering from Stockholm syndrome then let him be. My point from an analytic point of view is that althoughEmery may have done his homework via video it’s fair to say that you have to live through experience! Emery will want to take what was left and make slow calculated decisions! It’s insane to think that you just chuck 4-5 new players straight in and then stuff happens . He had a team capable of finishing in the top six’s oat the very worst that’s where we would be! But carefully change and implement it over a controlled period will reap better rewards . I think Emery is very meticulous in his approach.

16.) 04 Sep 2018 20:17:52
CB you started laughing when it was 2-2 and said we are crap . that’s anti Arsenal.

17.) 04 Sep 2018 20:26:44
Think you pretty much nailed it there with that last post Sanogo. 😁👍🏼.

18.) 04 Sep 2018 20:38:25
Thank you stoner. I just don’t want supporting arsenal turning into top of the pops with teenagers pissing themselves . You will see what he’s about over the next two windows and how he brings players in. We are very much still the Arsenal of old but I reckon he will change out cech and xhaka in the coming games against easier opposition at home. We have had two games against strong opposition and a Home game against West Ham that always has to be respected and a away game against a Warnock side that will physically compete. If the Cardiff game was at home then I reckon Leno or Torreira would start maybe both . It will get better I’m sure.

19.) 05 Sep 2018 16:38:10
Now let’s get this right moe I wanted Wenger to leave so where you got I wanted a 3 year deal for him is a joke, I wanted Wenger gone 2/ 3 years ago maybe before we won the first cup he should have gone, all iam saying is I see no change, but some how you lot seem to think iam typing something else, so I type I can’t see no change and don’t think the manager is good enough and you lot see, I want Wenger back and I hate arsenal, and Steve don’t even go there fella you don’t give any players you don’t like the chance to prove themselves so I don’t really read your posts lol.

20.) 05 Sep 2018 16:39:46
So Banbury if I type your name in the search engine and see any posts saying arsenal are rubbish crap not good enough that makes you anti arsenal 😂😂😂good one.

21.) 05 Sep 2018 17:01:25
Iam sure u said Sunday arsenal were crap in the 70s and had a go at me because I wasn’t born earlier enough to see it your sooooo anti arsenal for that 🤭.

22.) 05 Sep 2018 18:35:23
And crybaby, which actually suits you well, i don't think you are anti arsenal, just anti everything sensible.

23.) 05 Sep 2018 18:29:55
Thank god you don't read my posts, that will mean i won't get anymore childish responses. I respect opinions but not trolling.

24.) 05 Sep 2018 22:44:27
You wouldn’t make a reliable witness CB lol

I never mentioned any decade I just said I’ve seen worst sides that the one you were watching on Sunday .

Have another go CB

Never spoil a good story with the facts lol.

25.) 06 Sep 2018 07:41:43
I think you did Banbury U said so you never seen them in the 70s then, also someone else commented about it and I said it’s not my fault I was born later.

26.) 06 Sep 2018 08:49:54
Anyway let’s move on.

27.) 06 Sep 2018 10:17:47
This is all getting a little silly. I was in the live chat when this went down and BamBam, you did mention something about being born in the 70's or 60's or something, mate. It'll still be in the chat log.

What I also don't get is, why are you lot so adamant to get someone to see things exactly as you see them? So CB has a difference of opinion, big deal. It's not like he's wrong about how poor we still are. I don't think we need knee-jerk reactions like #EMERYOUT but the bottom line is, we have looked poor in just about every game this season, so far.

28.) 06 Sep 2018 17:07:30
Thanks sharpe nice to see someone being honest.

29.) 06 Sep 2018 17:56:26
Sharpe, its not about his opinion, its about from the first minute of the new season, he hasn't given Dick a chance. I really don't know about his opinion, he justs slags everything and everyone off, without any opinion.

30.) 06 Sep 2018 18:32:55
Yes born, I said you must have been born in the 70’s and said “ that tells me you have seen mostly Wengers era” which tells me he didn’t see Howe or Neil. It’s not about being honest, you are just selective CB.

31.) 06 Sep 2018 18:48:41
CB let’s look at some of your outrageous comments

1) Sack him ( Emery) after 5 games
2) commenting on the game v Cardiff “ this is the worst Arsenal side I’ve seen” . what about the absolute hidings we had under Wengers leadership?
3) “ we should beat everyone outside of the top 6 . that’s the best . think about it . So we should get a minimum of 84 points each season . brilliant.

32.) 06 Sep 2018 19:26:59
Banners, it doesn't matter what you said, some people will try and twist it to suit. It then all sounds a bit childish.

33.) 07 Sep 2018 08:51:11
I did t say sack him I said if he loses the next 5 games he has to go for me
And I said the worst team performances I’ve seen
And yes I did say we should be beating teams from outside the top 6,
1 out of three isn’t bad Banbury but if it hurts you that much you have to lie I’ll let you have them.

34.) 07 Sep 2018 08:51:55
And Steve it’s banbury that’s doing the twisting as someone else poured out yesterday.

It’s taken 6 years and we still don’t know how to play with him when he’s on the pitch we have 10 men, I honestly can’t think of a game when we have played the top 6 or any decent team in Europe that’s he’s stood out,

Well said ed it’s nice to get a run of games but if the teams we have played were better teams then I think the mood would be different here but Iam happy so far and it’s going to take a while b4 we are back challenging.
