Had to laugh, saw a report yesterday that stated that Abou Diaby should be back from injury in 2 or 3 weeks. That must be the longest calf strain in history!




29 Jan 2015 12:01:35
We have allowed 3 players to leave (Podolski, Sanaogo & Campbell, whilst only signing 2 players (Bielik & Gabriel). Are we intending to sign a third player and if so, in which position?
My own opinion is that we are looking for a player capable of playing wide left and striker.


{Ed025's Note - i cant see anymore coming in robbie..

1.) 29 Jan 2015 12:12:50
Thanks Ed, you are probably right. I still feel we are one short in terms of defensive midfield players, with the injury to Arteta and Bielik having just joined and only being 17 years of age. Flamini is poor in my humble opinion. Coquelin's sudden and unexpected rise is really satisfying, as I felt when he joined he looked a definite possibility to make it.

2.) 29 Jan 2015 13:03:56
Wide left? I can think of 6 or 7 players we have who can play wide left. And with Theo on his way back we surely have enough up front. Why would wide left be a priority?

3.) 31 Jan 2015 16:58:32
I'd of gone for shaqiri



15 Jan 2015 15:12:46
From what I understand we are trying to do tie up a deal for Winston Reid, with Jenkinson moving permanently to West Ham.


1.) 15 Jan 2015 16:55:49
Hope so with regards to Reid, will be a shame for jenks to go, but if he was still with us he would have his opportunity now, but when Debuchy is fit he wouldn't be first choice. Hopefully we will be able to get first refusal if we ever want him back



13 Jan 2015 11:06:29
Rumours that we are in for Ilkay Gundogan. Having suffered a serious injury and being relatively short, is he the type of defensive midfielder we need? I would far prefer the likes of Carvalho or Schneiderlin.


1.) 13 Jan 2015 14:50:34
2 Years ago he was emmense!

Claude Makelele was one of the best DM ever and he was 3ft 6, unfortunately Dungoden looks a shadow of the player he was before his injury

2.) 13 Jan 2015 16:59:05
337 - I am not against short players, but we seem to have too many of them. Therefore, a taller player would be preferable.

3.) I'm with you with the height thing, but take a look at gundugans vids from before his injury he was brilliant.

And just to clarify I know makalele wasn't really 3ft 6, he was at least 4ft



05 Jan 2015 20:56:33
Great window so far. loaned out a goalscoring world cup player. Talk of Sanogo also going out on loan.
Ins. none! Talk of Loic Perrin coing in, shocking.


1.) 05 Jan 2015 22:34:51
Typical Wenger! He is totally out of touch with what we need. Why on earth send Pod away to Inter when he is frustrated at not being able to play for us then keeping Campbell at the club when he can't hit a barn door at 5 metres!

Utterly stupid and brainless!

Wenger, you stubborn and useless french muppet, if you are listening buy Fabien Schar and William Carvallho or Sammy Khedira! Either that or just leave, PLEASE!

{Ed025's Note - maybe you can be his replacement seem to be a fountain of knowledge..

With 8 matches between 1st-29th April, it is essential that our players return injury free from the International period. Intelligent squad rotation will be vital during this period.


1.) 20 Mar 2019 07:53:07
We've had a lot of down time in February and March due to the early FA cup exit so it's swings and roundabouts in many ways.
All top 6 clubs are involved in Europe's latter stages and all have players on international duty too.
It's the business end of the season now and it will separate the best from the rest, as it always does each year.



17 Mar 2019 18:42:42
Chelsea's defeat at Everton and a difficult season run in, virtually rules them out of a top four finish
Our away league form will, In all probability, define whether we finish above either Man U or the Toot, both of whom have hit a poor run of form and have difficult CL matches to contend with. Whilst we have two tough matches with Napoli.
It will be extremely interesting to see how many players are selected and play in the upcoming international break.


1.) 17 Mar 2019 19:50:29
I wouldn't rule anyone out yet, far too soon.

2.) 17 Mar 2019 20:17:24
Every time Chelsea Spurs and United drop points it's good news for us.
We don't play again until the 1st of April so the question has to be does 3 weeks with no games help or hurt us?
As always only time will tell.

3.) 17 Mar 2019 21:08:40
As things stand we don't have any games v teams with nothing to play for during our run in, Watford Wolves Everton Leicester all have their eyes on 7th place that would come into play should City win the fa cup and none of Newcastle Palace Brighton or Burnley can consider themselves safe yet.
Obviously as games tick away we could find ourselves playing a couple of fixtures against the Beach Boys, wouldn't it be nice :-)

4.) 17 Mar 2019 23:35:13
If we can get max points in our home games and that's attainable on our home form, we must be able to at least eek out the points from the remaining away games to give us enough points, however many that ends up being. Easter time is going to be pretty exciting, with all the games coming up for everyone. Utd have to go to wolves, we do, chelski play utd, so its going to be bumpy for everyone.

5.) 18 Mar 2019 07:49:46
I think your good vibrations will see us through Steve:-) .

6.) 19 Mar 2019 18:56:38
The other top 5 all have 2 games left each involving each other. We have no top 6 opponents left to play. It couldn’t be more in our hands.



11 Feb 2015 16:38:44
Apparently Ramsey has another hamstring injury requiring a lay off, but Sanchez should be fit for the weekend FA Cup tie against Middlesboro.
I was more concerned with Sanchez, as we have Wilshere back in training and the Ox back in a couple of weeks. Indeed, I haven't been at all convinced by Ramsey's from this season.


1.) 11 Feb 2015 17:31:10
I think Rambo has been poor this season.

But, I guess anything less than last season's goalscoring heroics is considered poor.

Rest Sanchez for the weekend.
No disrespect, but if we can't beat Boro at home (yes, I know they beat City), than we are in trouble.

2.) Sanchez DOES NOT need to play at the weekend, madness is AW plays him.

As for Ramsey, was he rushed back too soon, there really has to be an enquiry into these injuries, it is mental



10 Feb 2015 21:59:21
Normal service resumed. Arsenal win, The Toot lose. Arsenal into the top four, Toot back in 6th. Loving it.


1.) Hoping for the teams around us to start dropping more points. It's looking really tight.



10 Feb 2015 06:43:09
Szczesny or Ospina?
Chambers or Bellerin?
Gabriel or Mertesacker?
Gabriel or Koscielny?
Walcott or Welbeck?
Sanchez or Ozil?
Coquelin or Flamini?
Gibbs or Monreal?
Ramsey or Rosicky?


1.) 10 Feb 2015 08:21:06
O, B, G, K, Wa, S, C, G, R.

2.) Only dags would put R for the last one when two peoples second name starts with R :)

3.) 10 Feb 2015 08:49:28
Dags, is the R for Ramsey or Rosicky? I'd give Rosicky a run out as Rambo has just lost his way lately with mis-passes. Rambo will get it back as he knows the standards he has to step up to make the starting line up. I'm going to go 4-1 tonight time to get mean and bang in the goal difference. COYG

4.) With Ramsay - although playing poorly lately, would a home game against bottom club be good for him? Pull a few string, nick a goal perhaps, confidence restored?
He is definitely a confidence player

5.) 10 Feb 2015 11:13:49
Id go for strongest team possible tonight.

Ospina, Bellerin, Mert, Kos, Monreal, Coq, Ramsey, Walcott, Caz, Sanchez, Giroud.

Then for Boro at the weekend we rotate.

Szszecy, Chambers, Gabriel, Kos, Gibbs, Flamini, Rosicky, Ozil, Sanchez, Welbeck, Giroud.

6.) He's from Dagenham, they're a bit dodgy there he probably thinks he can get away with 12 players and no one will notice :-)

7.) 10 Feb 2015 14:00:50
Well spotted Derby :-) .

337, its tough where I live mate.
Went to my local last one.
They had a pub quiz.
First question was, "What the hell you looking at?

8.) Much tougher than Malaga where you used to be?

The clubs contract policy was woeful during the Gazidis era. It simply can't be any worse.

Would love to see us sign him and more reports of Rabiot are emerging again. Hope there is truth in these reports, as well as Monchi arriving.


{Ed002's Note - I have already explained the situation with Monchi. As for Rabiot I am not aware of anything changing at all at this time.}

Atletico Madrid, would still have to agree a fee with Arsenal, so it's not a forgone conclusion. Don't forget Cazorla's agent may will be in negotiations with Arsenal for an extension to his current deal and this may just be a rumour put out to enhance his chances of getting a long term deal with increased wages. I am certain that Cazorla cannot yet speak to a club about a deal without Arsenal's permission.

Nice to see youngsters coming through and saving the club a fortune.

I believe that our away form will dictate our destiny.
In the EL we lost the away legs to Bate and Rennes. Thus needs to improve as we enter the last 8 and meet teams that will be less forgiving.
We have some difficult away PL matches and in order to secure a top 4 slot, we will in all probability need to win 3 and draw 2, which isn't an easy task.

The last 4 matches were crucial and the team came through, up into the top 4, only a single point behind toot in 3rd, and into the last 8 of the EL.
We will go into April with only 3 players injured, those with season ending injuries.
Last night there were many strong performances, Kolasinac stood out in particular.
Well done to Emery and the team.

Playing additional European mid-week games clearly doesn't help performances in the domestic league and of course in general playing in the CL against superior teams is clearly more difficult.

In our quest for a top 4 spot, I am sure that having to play at least 2 more CL matches will hinder Man U and the Toot.

Excellent result and performance. The atmosphere at The Emirates was amazing. I urge all supporters to turn up on Thursday and get behind the team, as we can still get through into the next round.
Yesterday, the whole team played well, with special praise for Leno, Koscielny, Maitland-Niles and Xhaka.
I beiieve that our home form is awesome, so qualification for the CL will depend upon the away results. let's hope Manchi joins and that Emery is given sufficient funds to bring in the players he needs.
