'The 29-year-old playmaker becomes the highest-paid player in the club’s history - earning around £350,000 per week before tax - in a deal completed this morning. '

350k? My god.

About time Stan coughed up some cash to keep hold of our best assets, now just need to sort the defence out, get a keeper and let Xhaka work for the ground staff and we can look forward to success.

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't work like that.}

2.) 31 Jan 2018 13:07:17
i think what the ed perhaps means is that the owner is not coughing up anything. he's running it like a business and the club have to use their own resources.

with giroud and the likes of debuchy likely making way to reduce the influx in other wages and mertesacker retiring at the end of the season.

lets hope that the defensive midfield, cb and gk do not cost us a fortune so we have to go back shopping in lidl.

was nice shopping in waitrose for a bit this transfer window.

Yeah we had to pay it to keep him because Man Utd would have easily payed that to sign him on a free. Held to randsom abit but he is one of the few world classs players we have that should be the top earner really.

4.) 31 Jan 2018 13:56:05
I really don’t understand why wenger doesn’t use Holding more often, he’s impressed me in each game he’s played. Just need a proper defensive midfielder and use ospina for god sake! He’s better than cech in every department so use ospina for the rest of the season then get cech out and bring another keeper in, cilisen from Barcelona would be good.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 16:17:52
Holding may become good, but he is far from the finished article. Goalkeeper is more thorny. Neither are up to much. Ospina is a good stopper, but his positioning and distribution are suspect, whilst Cech is way past his best. This has been an unresolved issue for far too long.



30 Jan 2018 23:19:37
Ive been travelling since june so have only seen a few games and the odd match highlights all season, but i'm always keeping tabs on our fortunes, and i can't say i'm sad about it. i'm young enough that wenger is the only manager I've ever known, but this is the worst arsenal team I've ever seen. Why is cech still being used? Ospina is woeful but cech is finished.

Maybe the defending is so bad that's he's a frightened rabbit and could carry on somewhere else, but i'd rather sczesny (spelling?) in goal right now. The two cbs are flapping at all times with no cover, bellerin looks like he's going to end up in the ranks of walcott/ wilshere/ ramsey/ ox after being destined for greatness not long avo. Why did we sell our only DM? Not long ago le coq was the first name on the pitch and now we sell him and play no DM because we have noone to play in the middle worthy to lace cazorlas boots.

Ozil can't carry a team and i don't see why he'd stay unless we throw ridiculous wages at him. Why buy lacazette if we're not going to play it fast and in behind? Why would aubameyang join this team? Why is iwobi even an arsenal player? Monreal is a poor mans left back but credit to him he looks like he's genuinely trying to be an arsenal player.

Our midfield is full of limplesa side passers, our play is dull and neither the style of the arsenal nor wenger football that i once knew. The teams of diabys, denilsons, artetas for all their flaws brought me entertainment. The days of losing but at least making a cracking game of it and just over-attacking were at least always a joy to watch even in the defeat and failure. Watching these days is neither entertaining nor a joyous result, i'm bored. If santi is finished why haven't we brought anyone in?
For the first time i have to say that i want wenger to leave at the end of the season.

So so bored.

That you Raver?

Seriously, totally agree with everything you just posted.

{Ed033's Note - Probably not the Raver as there is no mention of Stringfellows or Subaru.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 00:38:24
And no spelling mistakes Ed 😉.

{Ed033's Note - I'm sure the raver is too busy powdering their nose to worry about spellings.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 09:18:07
I get the sentiment but I don't agree with everything you have written there. Wenger is still a big draw for players, and Aubameyang probably wants to a) play in a different league, b) try living in London and c) earn more money.

Iwobi and Bellerin will both be fine - we forget how young they both are and they will experience dips in form, and also plateau from time to time. We have to be patient to allow them that.

I am intrigued to see Auba and Laca in the same team to see how we work that - it is pretty easy to mark Lacazette out of the game due to how he plays, so having 2 quick strikers will give an opposition defence more to think about.

I do agree that AW needs to either walk or be shown the door though. There are abject performance all too regularly now, and these are players that are capable of smashing in 3 or 4 goals if they feel like it. The boss doesn't get them to 'feel it' enough. Ahem.

Overall, we support the team - “Play for the name on the front of the shirt, and they’ll remember the name on the back” - a bit more of that and we will all be in love again.

I imagine Madrid would have won anyway, but it looked an awful lot like Ramos deliberately tried to injure Salah. Somewhat assault-like, no? Ugly.


1.) 27 May 2018 00:07:31
looked like ha ha.

2.) 27 May 2018 00:54:44
Ramos would never do a thing like that 😂😂.

3.) 27 May 2018 02:37:30
We need a bit of Ramos.

4.) 27 May 2018 10:29:38
I should add a bit of fight and nastiness something we’ve lacked for years.

5.) 27 May 2018 11:30:33
Was it just me that read that as Banbury stating he personally would add the fight and nastiness we have needed? Get your boots down to Colney young man 😂COUG.

6.) 27 May 2018 12:55:23
Think about this for just a second. It takes a vast amount of skill to dislocate someone's shoulder on purpose. To do it on purpose, make it LOOK like an accident, all while playing a rather fast paced game of footie is a tall ask.

7.) 27 May 2018 14:23:04
it does take a lot of skill and that's why its hard to know for sure, but aslo because of the fast pace it makes it very hard for a ref to spot it as malicious or just two people taking a tumble. VAR is needed for things like that, it looked very suspicious. the way he kept hold of salahs arm and then rolled back over him pulling his arm with him was very unnatural, it was the wrong way to roll and against resistance. still one silver lining for liverpool is i doubt salah would fancy madrid after that!

8.) 27 May 2018 16:18:28
Strange because the arm under Ramos' pit isn't the arm that's injured.

{Ed001's Note - what difference does that make? It is not the pull that does the damage, it is the weight of Ramos, as he twists to ensure he lands on top of him, that does it. It is the fact he held on to force Salah into a vulnerable position so he can twist over. Not a difficult thing to do, which is why it is a common move in almost every martial art. It is very simple to just pull on someone's arm as they are moving in the direction already and use their momentum to throw them. Especially if you have a hip in there to roll them over it and take any facet of control away from them.}

9.) 27 May 2018 16:48:25
Exactly my point. You think he pulled a martial arts move, on a football pitch, at that pace, with intent, all this while making it look accidental? Obviously we're all entitled to an opinion and that is definitely not an opinion I share mate.

{Ed001's Note - no you wouldn't. I did not say he pulled a 'martial arts move', I said it is a move common to most martial arts. There is a reason it is common to almost all of them, because it is simple and easy to use. The only thing it requires is a grasp on the arm of a person who is moving alongside you or towards you. I don't know why you are going on about it being made to look accidental, he never did anything of the sort, which is why so many people have seen it for what it is. By the way, it is the pace which makes it possible, which is bloody obvious and basic physics, so I don't know why you keep bringing that into it when it is of no value to your argument.}

10.) 27 May 2018 17:01:40
Haven’t been called young for years

Cheers Sussex.

11.) 27 May 2018 17:09:23
I might be wrong but to me he was almost pile driving the opposite shoulder into the ground which I think I’m right in saying was the one that’s injured.

Looked so obvious what he was trying to do and got an end result. Not a way to win but that kind of stuff sadly happens.

Up until then Liverpool genuinely looked the better side and probably should have been in front. As a neutral it leaves a sour taste to be honest.

12.) 27 May 2018 17:23:36
wow seriously? You don't know why I'm going on about these things or you just don't care because it doesn't align with your interpretation. Basic physics would dictate that the arm caught would be the arm injured, not the opposite arm. Anyway, not really important to me; I'm not a conspiracy theorist.

{Ed001's Note - basic physics would dictate that the arm that was thrown out to protect from the landing would be the arm injured. It is not difficult to understand. That is why it was the one injured, obviously you are still going on about it being the pull doing the damage, despite it being explained to you it is the landing that does the damage. The pull is just to lead into a fall. No idea what conspiracy theories have to do with anything.}

13.) 27 May 2018 19:34:25
Haha Banbury but if you're not young do you still have the fight and nastiness? COYG.

14.) 27 May 2018 22:04:50
I thought Salah wrapped his arm around Ramos?

15.) 27 May 2018 23:32:12
He absolutely did Crybaby, like he wanted to take him to the prom. But we're to believe that Ramos is some kind of football ninja.



15 Mar 2018 23:39:48
At least if Welbeck keeps up this form spurs might come sniffing and take him away.


1.) 16 Mar 2018 07:04:05
Whilst Kane and Ali’s diving is a thing of beauty Welbeck has even made himself look hopeless at doing that. Bless him.



06 Mar 2018 23:24:02
Hi Ed002,
If Arsene is to leave us in the summer, which seems increasingly likely, will there be interest in him from other clubs?


{Ed002's Note - I would doubt it, expect perhaps an international side.}

1.) 07 Mar 2018 17:50:53
france I guess if they get rid of didier.



23 Feb 2018 15:08:37
It's not even surprising anymore, I expected that performance. Woeful players, woeful mentality. Sell Giroud, keep Welbeck.

As someone said below, would anyone be surprised if we beat city 1-0 or fell to pieces from the whistle and lost 8-0? Probably not.
Would anyone call winning the league cup a successful season? Definitely not.
Can we win the europa and qualify for champions league? Of course. Will we? Improbable.
Will we catch 4th place? Improbable.
So there's no pressure really, just like in last nights game, yet they don't even turn up to play football. No passion, enjoyment, desire. We are flat, we'll probably go smash city now just to further confuse the mess.




01 Feb 2018 00:29:47
For all aubameyangs sulking at dortmund, i can see him smashing up the premiership, boys got a big ego and he's going to wanna get himself to a spanish giant before he's finished.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 01:02:12
We need him too. Make up for the other end.

Anyone would be disappointed in that position, i'd have been gutted myself. If he'd been here a year i would wven care if he moaned, proper strikers want to score the goals.
But its his first game and he didn't act like ronaldo, he celebrated every goal with his team mates.

He smoked and didn't have enough drive to be the best. But to be fair, he got paid hundreds of thousands of pounds to play football regardless, and obviously would rather carry on playing football than sitting on the bench. Fair play to the lad, I'd smoke too.

Depends timing, gunner. Van Persie had one season left in him when he left. Wouldn't surprise me if Sanchez is coming to the end of his prime now himself. hope he proves me wrong though, aside from united winning, quality professional and not a bad man for me. Hope he takes all that United moula back to Chile and does some wonderful things.

Honestly, even if he won us the league, could you tolerate him saying 'outstanding' every twenty seconds?
But no, he wouldn't win us the league, he would sink the ship further. I'd rather Dags, Steve and Ed025 than rodgers.

Question for you both Ed001 and Ed002: If it were up to you either of you personally, which managers/ coaches/ wizards/ whatever would you be looking at as the best options for us? While I love the game I must admit that I don't watch many other teams play and probably don't know anywhere near enough to say whether another manager is any good or dreadful.

Also Ed001, in contradiction to what I just said, I've been finding myself watching liverpool matches of late and must admit that I'm a little envious of the football your boys are playing of late. Reminds me of the days when we had a quality, fast, fluid attack. Are you happy with Klopp? At least to the ignorant he seems to be doing a pretty decent job, can we perhaps borrow him for a little while? :)


{Ed001's Note - first off, very happy with Klopp, he was who I wanted and he has been better than I expected.

When you are following Wenger it needs to be someone strong, who will ignore what went before and do his own thing and so remove the shadow hanging over the club. There are very few around to be honest. I would go for Nagelsmann but I know the club are not looking at him.}

If the season finished
1. City
2. United
3. Chelsea
4. Spurs
5. Liverpool
6. Arsenal

with both Liverpool and Arsenal being champions of europe, then Spurs would miss out? But that's absolutely not going to happen. Still on it since last night, Para?
