'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.}

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.

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.

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.

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.

Get ready for the raver to charge in on his suburu to brag about the referee handing the mighty spurs a draw!
Good results all round for us today, need a good performance against burnley tomorrow now.

It's honestly a shocking decision not to give city a penalty though, how on earth the ref couldn't see that as a foul I don't know. I can only assume that he is literally blind or received a nice pay day at half time. The quality of refereeing in this league is shameful.
Does nothing to help with the diving epidemic either. Sterling manages to stay on his feet and gets penalised for it, of course everyone is going to throw themselves to the ground!


1.) 21 Jan 2017 20:26:05
Agree I just sorted marriner out with a bit of space dust for us getting a draw, we got the runaround against city but still managed to get a point while 2 down shows we are a top team. I'm cruising down the motorway from Manchester with a big Jamaican cigar and a can of Ralph fosters heading for a big party in leafy Brixton later on tonight

2.) 21 Jan 2017 23:35:28
It was the best result for us a draw! Let's be honest city were by far the better team and spuds are above us. Potential of 4 points gained rather than three. We could and should move second tomorrow!

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.

I think the on-screen graphic with the squint, squiggly lines kind of made a mockery of the whole thing. Apparently they just broadcast the wrong image, and the squint squiggly line image had nothing to do with the decision, though where it arose from wasn't mentioned. Right decision, but the rest was a farce.

There was a tiny bit of contact, defenders leg brushed against him, very iffy penalty, but the dive was embarrassing. Hope the refs start noticing this trend.

I disagree dags, I see plenty of people hoping we will lose so they can spew their negative opinions, happens in the live chat all the time. Go 1-0 down 'wenger out, knew this would happen, our team is awful', suddenly we pull 2 back to take the lead and they disappear.

I had lloris, alderweirald, kane and struggled to choose between ali/ eriksen when i remember cazorla existed in a theoretical injury free world, for a total of four spurs players. Biased, maybe, but they've a lot of very average players. Players like walker and rose are massively overrated - systems can make very average players look much better than they are.

If anyone cares I had Bellerin/ Kos/ Monrea/ Ox/ Cazorla/ Ozil/ Sanchez. Monreal I'd be willing to put up for debate, but the rest are unquestionably better players.
