We have to start being honest - with the fans, players and footballing world. We weren't good enough on Saturday and were outplayed all over the pitch. We were lucky City showed us too much respect at 2 nil plus were having a bad day at the office in front of goal otherwise it could have been embarrassing.

We were poor and didn't create much. Poorly organised and made crap decisions in a game that were unprofessional and put us under pressure from the start.
Tell it how it is and don't blame the ref or linesman - we were poor and I for one would feel better if the club admitted that. You can build on honesty.
Sort it out Wenger - i'll be the biggest fan you ever lose

Got your picture on my wall, and it reminds me that it's not so bad.

You forgot the ‘P. S. we should be together too’.

3.) 08 Nov 2017 21:15:39
The fans from what I can see are as honest as the days long. It's Wenger who needs to start with the honesty . It was offside sterling dived etc. How are players going to wise up when your manger makes excuse after excuse.

4.) 09 Nov 2017 23:25:11
That’s my point.



30 Sep 2017 16:49:32
Ed, I know Wenger has a two year contract but with Carlo Ancelotti current position - will the club try to get him in place or tie him down to manage next season or will we continue as is with Wenger and miss out on a great opportunity?


{Ed001's Note - Wenger is in charge of his own destiny mate.}

1.) 02 Oct 2017 06:18:24
Wenger will be at the club for at least the nest two seasons. However, I have always admired Ancelotti, although my current flavour of the month is Marco Silva wh appears to be doing a fine job at Watford.

2.) 03 Oct 2017 21:12:26
Eds, laccazette jokes he's trying to convince Greizman to join him at Arsenal this coming summer. Arsenal were never linked with him. Is there any slight interest in the player?

{Ed001's Note - there was a while ago, but, ironically enough, Lacazette was the option instead of him. I don't know of any revived interest, but it is a while until the window.}

3.) 04 Oct 2017 11:26:47
Cheers for the response eds. Lacazette, Griezman and Lemar, French trio up front. Would never happen. How could Arsenal possible make a profit buying those 2 lol.

4.) 04 Oct 2017 20:29:22
If the media are to be believed, I remember us reportedly having an interest in Griezmann when he was at Sociedad, just before he burst onto the National team and became an established world class player.

5.) 04 Oct 2017 21:13:59
If I remember correctly TPG it was the same time Carlos vela was at sociadad and doing fairly well. I'm sure I heard somewhere that we tried to involve vela in the deal as he was on loan at the time .

Hahaha sorry I couldn't resist.

Offer Sanchez a deal worth 400k per week.

It adds up and is good value as there is no transfer fee.

It perpetuates the issue and more players will run down contracts but we either start winning the league or continue to have players holding all the power

Surely we could give him a deal that doesn't upset the wage structure

Ox for 200k is a joke


1.) 26 Aug 2017 12:22:58
I don't usually care about how much we pay our player but a near 200k for the ox is a joke, yes he's been good but not phenomenal imo especially that Wenger doesn't know exactly where to play him. So imo sell him and replace him with Mahrez or Lemar would be best.
And if we are ready to splash on wage for the ox, get rid of him and give it to Sanchez and make him sign a new deal ends of.

2.) 26 Aug 2017 12:32:55
Sanchez doesn't want our money he wants to challenge for top honours and be at a club with ambition.
When are people going to accept this and realise Sanchez competiveness and ambitious nature isn't for sale.
We can offer him 1 million a week and he still wouldn't be happy with our 4th place ambitions.
Signing good players might have changed his mind but simply offering money isn't going to make hin want to be at Arsenal any longer than he has to be.

3.) 26 Aug 2017 13:40:53
Sanchez doesn't need or want money, he wants medals, he's good enough to be playing for a team with real ambition and I'm sorry to say it but I can't begrudge him for wanting to go elsewhere as let's be honest Wengers lies about wanting to challenge for top honours are so see through its actually a joke now.



14 Aug 2017 23:10:10
It's hard to argue with TH14 - "Henry believes Arsenal missed a trick by ignoring the ball over the top for Lacazette to run on to on too many occasions, instead opting to play out wide and keep possession. "

Lacazette had to make a second and third run a number of times due to our slowness in attack - looking forward to the team realising that it's Lacazette not Giroud up front and we have new options

Will be interesting to see how we react to the two supposed bids

Ox 35m Chelsea
Sanchez 60m City

Typical that we sell these guys but keep Jack, Gibbs, debuchy etc!

Offer Sanchez 300k per week and see if his hearts in it / if not.

Let's get Aguero plus 40m plus Lemar for 60m - get it done, learn lessons and move on

Keep Ox and play him RWB

Go buy Matuidi

Clear some squad players

and call it a day.

No one is bigger than the club.


1.) 15 Aug 2017 07:06:04
It was an interesting watch SY, the amount of times I've seen that exact same thing when Giroud was making the run and it was often Ozil not making that final pass.

The concerning thing was Xhaka clearly seemed to see him and is a fantastic passer but never played the ball.

Hopefully he was listening/ watching. 😁.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 13:05:08
To be fair, I moan at Walcott a lot for not running in behind the defense, but when he does he never gets the ball either. I do worry that if we wanted to play the ball over the top we would have used Walcott in that role more, but its just not our style. As Stoner says though, hopefully the more Lacazette offers himself with these runs the more others will realise.

3.) 15 Aug 2017 23:05:55
yeah need to mix it up more really as it then keeps the opposing defences guessing as to drop off or push up.

4.) 16 Aug 2017 07:23:31
Hi all.

Well laca just joined. i'm sure once he settles in and has a better understanding with our best passers then they will try to play him in behind the opposition defense. On another note, Laca actually excels in tight spaces so even if he doesn't get played in behind he is a fox in the box and in time even our slow build up play will benefit us because unlike giroud who is dominant in the air and depends on crosses to head in the ball, LACA can make late runs in the box or just dribble/ run around a defender to take a snap shot at goal. not to mention his speed on breaks will also benefit us massively as giroud is usually too slow to keep up with our fastest players which usually results in sanchez or other forwards having to break only to turn around and wait for other players to catch up OR take on 3-4 guys on their own.

Hi ED's, thank you for all the info and specially grateful to ed 02 for his podcasts.

On a positive - Jack played well

On a negative - the amount of players we need to replace is crazy. Cech, Per, Kis, Nacho, Granit, Coq, Santi, Ozil, Sanchez, Giroud and Welbeck plus others like Debuchy.

It's going to be a bloodbath in the summer or we will die from a million cuts

Painful - what was Cech doing at the simple cross that almost cost us the game

Why do we attack so slow and always through the congested middle then get so easily caught out on the counter attack as also pedestrian getting back into position.


1.) 13 Dec 2017 23:58:19
I think we need to get the planes fired up again.

2.) 14 Dec 2017 08:00:01
Unfortunately the only way forward In a new era needed is a new manager. I'm sorry but we are drifting more each season.

3.) 14 Dec 2017 08:42:27
I don't think it is the team there is enough talent there if finely tuned and motivated which could be succesful. Its the tactics and lack of fight wenger shows. He is happy being mediocre playing players out of position. I just hope he doesn't ruin maitland niles and nelsons potential progress as he has with others by playing them out of position. Niles is strong fast and composed something we are missing in midfield and nelson is not a wing back. Minreal is not a centre half. Xhaka is not a holding midfielder. i could go on but you get the picture. It is wenger holding this team back. Wenger is like theresa may. He was the greatest but carried on too long and.

4.) 14 Dec 2017 11:24:52
Ignore the last post with the teresa may comment i pressed reply by mistake. It was supposed to read wenger is like theresa may. they are in power but nobody wants them there.



03 Dec 2017 09:14:54
If we play like that - speed, desire, commitment, aggression etc minus the stupid defensive errors then we will be fine this season. Hope we keep this intensity up as that's what champions do or teams competing for the league. Teams competing for 4th or 5th don't and that's why we are where we are

Tide is turning may be plus all the bsck room staff but in typical style - is it too late as the team needs huge investment next year so this was the year!

Really enjoyed the game and really really liked our starting 11 - not said that for a while. Lacazette has changed the dynamics up front

Ona negative - Sanchez still doesn't look right and not playing for the team. Too many selfish plays and shots which give possession up.




02 Dec 2017 19:27:58
We sucked against 10 men - can't belueve we didn't get a penalty and a point. Third goal was a joke.
Great game up until red card then we helped them park the bloody bus.


{Ed0333's Note - what a game. Superb entertainment. I agree you were robbed of a penalty maybe even two. But De Gea proved again he had 3 Shredded Wheat for breakfast. Some keeper that fella.

1.) 02 Dec 2017 20:32:35
Refs decisions usually even themselves up over a season, they went against us v City and Utd but for us v Spurs and ( Burnley once again:-) .
I reckon this season the refs mistakes are running neck and neck for and against us week by week.

2.) 02 Dec 2017 21:19:38
both bics imo lads. pens.



19 Nov 2017 16:29:51
Why are expectations so high?
Is it the bar I set?
My arms, I stretch, but I can't reach
A far cry from 04, or it's in my grasp, but as
Soon as I grab, squeeze
I lose my grip like the flyin' trapeze
Into the dark I plummet, now the sky's blackenin'
I know the mark's high, butterflies rip apart my stomach
Knowin' that no matter what eleven I run with
You're going to harp, gripe, and
That's a hard Vicodin to swallow, so I scrap these
As pressure increases from AWOs
I feel the ice cracking, because

I walk on water
But I ain't no Jose
I walk on water
But only when it freezes

It's the curse of the standard, that the invincibles or first decade set
Always in search of the play that I haven't spit yet
Will this step just be another misstep
To tarnish, whatever the legacy, love or respect
I've garnered?
The team has to be perfect, the defence flawless
And it always feels like I'm hittin' the mark
'Til I go sit on the sofa, listen sky and they pick it apart
Like, "This shit is garbage!"
God's given me all this, still I feel no different regardless
Fans look to me as a god, this is retarded
If only they knew, it's a facade and it's exhaustive
And I try not to listen to STEVE R or Merse
But if you bitches are tryin' to strip me of my confidence
Mission accomplished
I'm not God-sent
Graham, Klopp, Fergie
, Pep, and I'm no Special one.

I walk on water
But I ain't no Jose
I walk on water
But only when it freezes

'Cause I'm only human, just like you
Making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
I don't think you should believe in me the way that you do
'Cause I'm terrified to let you down, oh

It's true, I'm a Rubik's, a beautiful mess
At times stuborn, yes, I don't always see things or tell the truth and I jest
A flawed human, I guess
But I'm doin' my best to not ruin your expectations and meet 'em, but first
The last verse, now Granit
He's going too fast, is he going to stay on his feet or f@@@ me over? Giroud as a late sub, I'm out of ideas.
There was a time I had the world by the balls, eating out my palm
Every critic was spazzin' the f@@@ out on
And now I'm gettin' clowned and frowned on
But the only one who's looking down on
Me that matters now's You, the fans
Am I lucky to be around this long?

Was the rap about Wenger?

I just don't understand and hope I never do understand the idiots who go out of their way to abuse people on line for having an opinion or being different. I certainly don't understand people that give the Eds abuse - just stay off the site and live your life while allowing others to gain knowledge or debate areas of their interest.

It seems like the board is happy with our performances and league finishes - in fact that we overachieve

Wenger seems to have given a good account of himself, still wants to win the league and understands that the past is in the past except that it sets the high expectation of the fans. He clearly loves the club and wants to win the EPL before he retires with the fa Cup not being enough. Clearly still understands the fans and is still a winner

Question is - do the Baird want it enough to invest what's required to compete year in year out. What's City and Chelsea spend over past 10 years? Or are they happy with us run as we are .

Great 3 points! Now we need to build on this and confidence going into Wednesday and then Urd.
Hopefully Watford batter Utd on Tuesday.
