This Mesut Ozil saga has to come to an end. This post may cause a bit of stir, but i still believe this guy has a massive role to play. I know some of you have been slating him and he deserves some of it. But since his omission from the squad, has any player actually stepped up to create chances?

We're constantly leaving ourselves short at LB as Kolasinac is the only player in the team who actually puts a ball into the box, but due to his commitment going forward we suffer. No other player in the league picks a pass like Ozil, and this guy needs to be given a free role in our team. As for Emery i can’t see his reign lasting two long.

Also can i just point out that one of the only first team coach still left at the club from the wenger reign is the supposed defensive coach of Steve Bould? How can we not get this defense right with such a great defender coaching them?


1.) 15 Feb 2019 21:32:26
Steve Bould wasn’t a great defender mate! . Ozil is a great player.

2.) 16 Feb 2019 03:41:48
I'm with you there JG but I don't know how much of the Ozil situation is down to Emery and how much is due to the guys upstairs. Do they want him out to free up the wage bill? Are they trying to embarrass him deliberately after the mistake they made giving him that contract? Baffling and frustrating.

3.) 16 Feb 2019 10:36:12
It sounds like a pretty desperate defence of Emery blaming the club for Dick not playing Mesut wire mate.
Sorry but it does sound ever so similar to the naughty stadium defence of Arsenes choices and decisions that backfired too.
Personally I think it's easier to deal with what we know and see for ourselves rather than guess at possible answers that deflect from the fact that we look no better now than we did under Arsene but Mesut is reduced to watching Xhaka play in almost every game now.
Dick in my opinion took the easy option of dropping Mesut and it's not worked out well.

4.) 16 Feb 2019 12:45:19
To be fair g62 none of us 'know' anything except that Ozil isn't playing and there's a different excuse every other day. I'm willing to bet Ozil would be playing if he wasn't on 350k a week, which to me seems like the club want him gone so he can free up the wage bill.

Maybe someone ITK can elaborate further. I'm not making excuses for Emery, the whole situation irritates me as we are clearly a lot better off playing Ozil than this situation as it drags on, whatever you think of the player himself.

5.) 16 Feb 2019 13:05:31
Fair comment Wire mate but although I agree the club would most likely wish Mesut off the wage bill I really don't think it's the club choosing not to select him or Ramsey I think that's 100% Dicks choice and one most fans are struggling with simply because we struggling to be betrer without him than with.
Managers stand or fall by their decisions and Dicks big choices aren't paying dividends when I watch the team play.
I just can't see any difference between Arsene and Dick being in charge in the way we perform on the pitch which when all said and done is what really matters.

{Ed001's Note - Emery has a free hand in team selections, it was one of the things he insisted on before he took the job after his experience at PSG where he was forced to play certain players.}

6.) 16 Feb 2019 17:24:20
Thanks Ed0001 mate, that's some crazy set up where someone else picks some of your team for you or worse still players have it on their contracts they must play.
Now I would have total sympathy for any coach who was forced to include certain individuals and question why other than money they would work under such restrictions, seems like a hiding to nothing job to take in the first place.

{Ed001's Note - hiding to nothing but it makes you wealthy and you still get big jobs afterwards as everyone knows you were on a hiding to nothing. It is win win really.}

7.) 17 Feb 2019 13:02:13
I get the whole "Get Ozil off the wage bill " thing but let's face it, he is still one of the best players in the world on his day and talent like that is not to readily available. So you take a massive hit on Ozil and buy what? Another player that could not get in at Barcelona or Citeh you then have their wages to find. Wish Dick would just swallow his pride and admit he is wrong about Ozil.

8.) 16 Mar 2019 06:33:28
As someone who’s not an arsenal fan, I’d see your best midfield as a three of Xhaka Torreira Ramsey (obviously not long term) then Ozil ahead of them behind lacazzete and aubameyang. Torreira and Xhaka can drop deep if needs be so Ozil can play freely and Ramsey can bomb on. Wouldn’t have much natural width but could dominate the centre of the park so Kolasinac and Bellerin could provide it.



12 Dec 2018 20:14:05
Any truth in the links to Eric Bailly or Gary Cahill Eds?


{Ed025's Note - not as far as i know mate..

1.) 12 Dec 2018 22:35:09
Cheers for the reply bud.

2.) 14 Dec 2018 00:02:51
I can easily see us going for Cahill in january.

3.) 14 Dec 2018 09:39:12
Very good back up option, still a quality defender, and puts his body infront of anything. Would be a decent signing i think Steve.

4.) 14 Dec 2018 13:54:03
Agree boys and he's only a pup compared to Litch :-)

5.) 14 Dec 2018 18:06:45
Gunner, he would be a bung not a solution but we need a bung at the moment. Nothing to do with GG though.

6.) 14 Dec 2018 20:33:17
The last bit lost me completely Steve mate?

7.) 14 Dec 2018 22:05:13
George Graham, Bung?
I know, sorry. Bung just reminded me of George.

8.) 14 Dec 2018 22:27:01
Sorry mate, I was a bit thick there wasn't I:-) with you now :-)



20 Nov 2018 15:35:31
Any truth in the Denis Suarez rumours eds? Not sure how he would cope in the Premier League, could be a good signing.


{Ed002's Note - Denis Suarez is a player who is reluctant to leave Barcelona but is concerned at the lack of game time. Barcelona need to raise funds to help with planned changes and are open to offers - and there is interest from Valencia and Lazio - but the interest of Napoli will have drifted away. I am not aware of interest being shown by Arsenal at this time. They have other targets so could perhaps turned to him if they are unable to secure any of those.}

1.) 20 Nov 2018 22:19:41
Thanks for the reply! Amazing info as always.



03 Aug 2018 22:56:05
With Kolasinac out untill mid October, does anyone think we will be looking for cover? i'd personally like a move for Danny Rose, quality player who i think could upset a few yids another Sol Campbell saga lol.


1.) 05 Aug 2018 02:27:37
Zero chance of Rose. Maitland-Niles will play against City and Monreal should recover from a minor knee injury soon.



08 Jul 2018 13:50:10
Sky reporting that were in talks to sign Guendouzi, anyone have any info on this kid? Seems like this might be the youngster Ornstein was talking about, 19 year old, another midfielder. Feel like we have an over load, unless the club are getting ready for some departures? I feel we are desperate for a winger and anoth LB.


{Ed002's Note - He would be one for the future.}

1.) 08 Jul 2018 15:42:36
Ed when you have a moment will you please provide us with an extensive scouting report of the player highlighting his strengths and weaknesses and also a comparison to a current player.

2.) 08 Jul 2018 16:37:22

3.) 09 Jul 2018 07:40:57
Wow come on really extensive scouting report 👀👀.

{Ed001's Note - he is just a kid, not sure how we are expected to provide 'extensive' scouting reports for a kid none us will have seen playing.}

4.) 09 Jul 2018 08:57:05
Think the joke went over someone’s head.

5.) 09 Jul 2018 09:16:18
It did mine JW, but now you now you point it out i get it :-) , as someone said the other day irony doesn't always translate well in text unless you make totally obvious.

6.) 09 Jul 2018 11:35:50
Tongue-in-cheek, request Ed. ;)

{Ed001's Note - apologies mate, I had just woken up when I replied X-XC, never thought.}

7.) 09 Jul 2018 16:04:33
It went over my head too Ed001 mate and still would be if it wasn't for JW pointing it out, mind you that's not unusual for me :-)

{Ed001's Note - very true you must be about 2 ft tall as most stuff goes over your head.}

8.) 09 Jul 2018 18:35:10
Very true Ed but at 8 feet round there ain't much gets by me :-)

{Ed001's Note - I can't even begin to imagine what that looks like, but I am guessing very like Ed025 in his younger days.}

Really poor team selection from Emery today, that being said i thought Elneny wasn’t too bad, tried to get things going as much as he could. Ozil turned it on in the second half, he didn’t have a lot of movement ahead of him though. AMN really impressive again in the second half. But the big problem lies with Mustafi, if that guy ever plays for this football team again i'd be shocked! What a liability, he can personally take blame for 2 of the 3 goals today. Useless headless chicken. We missed Xhaka today turning things over in the middle. Happy easter everyone.


1.) 21 Apr 2019 22:21:28
I think the team rotation today was for whatever reason, one or two steps too far. Our performance was really poor and mr j moss should not be reffing at this level.



09 Apr 2019 18:24:55
Does anyone else think we should play Kolasinac as a winger or just me? Emery has said we need more width hence why he was chasing wingers, i think improve the LB and play Kolasinac on the left wing, he has been our main attacking point most of the season and has caused a lot of teams a lot of problems, maybe he could be a force with less defensive responsibility? Just a thought, could save us some pennies in the summer as well.


1.) 09 Apr 2019 19:25:43
Didn't we try that at City 93 mate?

2.) 09 Apr 2019 19:39:06
Was it still Maine road then,? G62.

3.) 09 Apr 2019 21:21:02
Yes Sano and Franny Lee was up top for City and Dave Watson at CB mate :-)

4.) 10 Apr 2019 21:37:53
😂 i'm not too sure Gunner, i know he has played left side of midfield as a wing back, but as a winger i don't believe he has mate. I think it would definitely be worth a try.

5.) 11 Apr 2019 08:24:44
Fair enough 93 mate he Just doesn't look like your every day lean slim wing machine does he :-) he looks more like a quarterback in appearance to me :-)

6.) 11 Apr 2019 14:57:55
Cant be any worse than Iwobi, although to be fair my gran could play left wing better than Iwobi, and shes been dead for over 30 years.



13 Mar 2019 13:02:08
Hi Eds

I know this is a long shot as we haven’t even made it to May yet. Do any of you have any insights on players we are showing promising interest in? Or is it a matter of waiting for Monchi as that will more than likely change targets?
Thanks in advance and thanks again for all the insight you provide us with.


{Ed002's Note - Read the posts.}



26 Jan 2019 09:49:40
Not too disappointed regarding the result last night. Think we can take the positive of being the better team, united caught us 3 times on the counter. Here’s hoping Sokratis and Koscileny’s injuries are both minor, as we can’t afford to lose either at the minute. What do you guys reckon all guns blazing for 4th or Europa? I think Emery really needs priorities one. As we will fall 6 behind Chelsea and 3 behind United when we play City nect weekend, unless Emery can steal some points from the Etihad.


1.) 26 Jan 2019 11:36:44
Socratis and Kos are vital to any form of success this season, no one else available is anywhere near good enough.

2.) 26 Jan 2019 11:52:25
Mate, you had more possession but shots on target were the same so it depends how you view ‘being the better team’. As for your prospects, you started th season really well but seem to have lost all momentum. Right now, I would back United to finish in the top 4, not convinced Spurs won’t have a dip so that would leave 1place for you, Chelsea, or Spurs.

Europa is the way to go, raise yourself for those games, if you win it it’s a trophy and entry into the Champiosn League. It will be interesting t see if Emery prioritises which is what we did 2 years ago.

3.) 26 Jan 2019 12:09:56
In reality you were the better team AJH simply because you got your game plan right and we didn't.
Until we get solid at the back again we will always come up short, I can't remember any team ever winning the league and being poor at the back, not all title winners were excellent at the back but all could hold their own when they had too.
It's no coincidence we've been poor at the back for a decade and not challenged for a title for the same amount of time.
Last night's game was pretty much par for the course, I remember LVG coming to the Emirates with a united team that had 1 fit defender and winning because you simply packed your defence and hit us on the break as per usual.
There is a difference between being the prettiest team and the better team.

4.) 26 Jan 2019 12:55:37
We are too easily sliced open by a simple pass and limited cover at the back. Why can’t we coach that very simple discipline. Please sort out the issue as we can’t win anything if we concede sloppy easy goals. The opposition know they can always score against us. It’s been the case all season with no improvement. Utd’s second goal was a perfect example of that.

5.) 26 Jan 2019 13:05:51
Football is not about being the better or worse team, its about winning. It doesn't matter how good or unfortunate arsenal were or how good or fortunate utd were. Utd won! For me i just wonder what utd are learning from the ogs tennure, they are eakinng out results and every result they get it ollies job. For us the faults are laid bare and we are suffering at the moment. Both teams have different prioties going forwards. For next season i'm hopeful we can get back to challenging for top four, for utd, they also can but utd are a million miles from a genuine challenge for a prem title and so are we.

6.) 26 Jan 2019 14:32:14
A million miles is a bit harsh steve, City and Liverpool are setting a standard we both need to get to but sometimes it’s only a couple of players. Liverpool were a good team but a goalie and a CB has made them a great team. As for a City, Pep is very intense and usually by year 3 the players are starting to burn out, it will be interesting to see if he sticks around.

I think United have a lot of options going forward but are light at the back, DDG saves us so many points. A top class CB, a right full back and a CM will do for me, as well as Pogba and the clu deciding if he is staying. As for OGS, I wrinkled my nose when we appointed him but he’s been a revelation. 8 wins in a row, happy and positive unlike Voldemort, mature, sensible and enjoying the ride, and he’s one of our own.

I like Emery, I think he needs time and some cash. He seemed genuinely delighted to be appointed and he plays the game the right way. His approach to Ozil and Ramsey shows he’s ready to make changes but it takes time.

We’ve both fallen a long way since Pizza gate haven’t we?

7.) 26 Jan 2019 14:57:06
I think citeh and liverpool at the moment are playing football at a different level than the rest. Pep and klopp are by far the best matched teams and managers in the prem. The only thing utd are doing at the moment is proving that the players are in control of that club and like chelski, that's a bit worrying. Why are they all of a sudden on an 8 hame run, when a few months ago, they were sulking? Things can change very quickly but pep and klopp are way ahead at the moment. Liverpool and citeh are well into their plans and construction, the rest are still asking more questions tham getting answers.

8.) 26 Jan 2019 17:41:39
We were the better team by controlling the game, you had 3 chances on the break and scored with all 3, yeah you were more clinacal than us. But I believe over the 90 we were the better team. Completely agree though AJH we are desperate for investment and i just hope Emery is really up for it, he has 2 fights on his hand, one with Donkey Kroenke and the other with the players. And Steve Liverpool and City are both beatable in the way they play, i wouldn’t say were a million miles away either and we could possibly make 3/ 4 and be right up there against them.

9.) 26 Jan 2019 20:05:22

I recall being told how bad we were when 16pts behind you in 4th when you were top and now you sit in that exact same spot.

Fighting for 4th as we did and only a few players from being great, as we always were. You’re sounding like an Arsenal fan.

Don’t you honestly see how bad you are, don’t you look at your squad across the board and think I honestly wouldn’t want any of them, if for example you followed City.

I truly look at De Gea and the potential of Rashford and then where do you really go, would either of them make the City or Liverpool 1st team under Klopp or Guardiola.

Then what about the rest, I still don’t see why Pogba gets raved about for highlight reel stuff in a game. So many other sides just walk through him in your midfield.

I’m not saying we are the bees knees but you spent an absolute fortune to have mostly squad players. I thought Shaw may have stepped up but he’s just a fat lad.

I’m not going to reel off names but some of the dross is still there from Fergies days. You just look a shadow of your former selves as we do.

10.) 27 Jan 2019 07:45:21
Stoner, to sure how often you watch us but sine Jose went the team has been transformed. Yes we need strengthening but there’s a bunch of players who look 10 times better than they did. We can argue whose fault that is but it’s up to the Manager to get the best out of his players which is what we are starting to see.

Would Park have got into other teams, Wes Brown, John OShea, Darren Fletcher, Tom Cleverly. I could go on, it’s not about a team of stellar names, it’s about creating a team that works. Right now I wouldn’t swap Rashford, Martial, Lingard, Pogba, Herrera, Lindelof, Shaw, DDG. I’d promote some youngsters and buy a CB, RB, and CM. I’d sell Sanchez, Lukaku, and a number of other squad players and try and replace them with much better quality (easier said than done) ,

I think you’re too harsh, both about us and Arsenal. United finished above Liverpool last year, Liverpool sign a Gk and a CB and suddenly they like they look like Champions. The right Manager, tactics, preach, with 3/ 4 quality signings and we will be both be moving up.

You need to lighten up, sounds like you’ve given up.

11.) 27 Jan 2019 16:51:58

Not sure if you’ll read this now but your Liverpool example doesn’t hold water mate.

You have to look at the emergence of Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Fabinho and that they already had that fabulous front 3.

You don’t have near to that quality mate, Van Dyjk and Alison were the final pieces.

You have way way more to do before you get close to another title.



19 Jan 2019 08:44:07
Massive game today for our top 4 hopes. If Emery can get the team as pumped as they were against Liverpool and Spurs in the league, we should walk all over an average Chelsea side who aren’t exceptional at the minute. COYG.


1.) 19 Jan 2019 09:40:46
It would be just what the doctor ordered 93, beat Chelsea today and suddenly Dick gets breathing space and followed by a win against United and he's back in credit big time.
Lose today and the questions will continue to mount up and lose today and next week and Dick will have a huge Hill if not a small mountain to climb.
One off games can change a season and we need our season or much more importantly our performances to take a turn for the better.
Progress is the oder of the season in my book and real obvious rather than debatable improvement from where we were last year.

2.) 19 Jan 2019 14:11:13
Its obvious, a win and we are back in the hunt and a defeat means we are concetrating on europa league for success.

3.) 19 Jan 2019 16:44:43
Whatever happens this season Is a learning curve for Emery and the players. He will have a good idea of who to keep and give the boot by the end of season.

Personally i think Cech might be out best cb if tried 🤦🏻‍♂️ I know that nobody rates him, but the stats on when Xhaka is and isn’t it the squad show why Emery is playing him, I personally think he is a liability but we need some muscle in the middle and for now he provides it. He was possibly our best player against United, had Sanchez in his pocket all game. He slipt off to the left to score.

AMN has a lot of promise, i'd like to see abit more of willock if Ramsey goes this month.
