Man Utd and Mourinho, our constant nemesis, either individually or together.

Emery is so far pulling some fabulous rabbits out of the hat so the pressure mounts, 19 games unbeaten adds to it.

Another opportunity for him to give us that bit more faith in him.

I am impressed so far, I love the clear team spirit, the effort and some of the genuinely good football but equally am not yet believing the hype. We are 14 games into a season and still with a lot to prove.

I have absolutely no idea what the score will be tonight but it would be great to come away with something.

I’m hoping it’s a curse on wenger not Arsenal. On current form you would have to say 3-1ish we are still easy or easier to score against than most, certainly the big 5 anyway. I’m still going for a win on the premise that it’s unai not Arsene because I remember a few years ago when we were in a similar although not quite as good a run and we were playing united reserves or near as damn it and ended up loosing. These are all monkeys that Emery needs to peel of the Arsenal back.

2.) 05 Dec 2018 18:11:48
I remember that brow and it totally derailed us! I was so excited before the game too so this time I'm filled with apprehension!

3.) 05 Dec 2018 18:50:13
I think both sets of fans would take a draw right now and I think Jose might too but Dick always wants 3pts but grudgingly accepts 1pt is better than nothing.
I thought against Liverpool he'd have been as pleased as we all were at getting a point but right to the final whisle he was urging the players forward looking for those 2 missing points he wanted badly, hard not to love his mentality passion and commitment that seems to have spread to every corner of the club already.
Things are certainly looking the best they've been for years from where I'm sitting.

4.) 05 Dec 2018 19:45:57
I think going on form a draw would be disappointing. If we win I think we can say we’re shaking off the curses and move forward!

Anyone else see the prize money paid out by the Premier League this season.

At £139 million for finishing 5th we only got £11 million less than Chelsea did for winning it.

Sunderland got £93 million for finishing bottom.

That is some serious cash.


1.) 01 Jun 2017 22:16:13
Let's home we can plough the majority of that cash into our transfer targets.

2.) 02 Jun 2017 12:12:41
Good news for the players but not so good for the fans, that money needs to come from somewhere and there is ultimately only one place to get it, the public.
Yes there is advertising money but the advertisement is only aimed at the fans too so ultimately it's 100% the watching public who pay.
Increased transfer fees increased wages increased prices have to follow.



19 May 2017 17:54:35
Holy shizzle, Usmanov has made a 1.3 billion bid to Kroenke to buy his shares.

Only read a couple of days ago that Usmanovs personal wealth went up by over £4 billion this year.

Apparently Kroenke hadn't said a definite no.

Sell, sell, sell!


1.) 19 May 2017 18:06:10
Please please sell! We need a change from the top down. I believe Usmanov will do this. And he won't see this club as purely a business. It'll also be a hobby and something he won't want to lose with. Fingers crossed.

2.) 19 May 2017 18:15:52
I was slated when I said usmanov will take over one day. he's the savious imo and itl happen eventually. No top4 would be great bargaining tool.

I knew my avatar would not be wasted :) red dog if your reading this have faith usmanov is here.

3.) 19 May 2017 18:24:10
I'll hold my hands up and say I was against it. Slated anyone who said it. But now we need it. I was against all the money that came with it. But now that money is in football from sponsors anyway.

4.) 19 May 2017 18:50:50
He's a big Wenger fan though.

5.) 19 May 2017 19:12:46
Lol he's not stupid wouldn't slate wenger before he's in. Bad PR all the noises etc are at perfect times he's a clever bloke. If he comes wenger may get a year who knows but he won't accept failure. Finishing 5th won't be a bad thing this year. D16 let's hug.

6.) 19 May 2017 19:23:27
I'd love him to come in, but in reality I don't think it's going to happen. Stan is too stubborn as he's proved recently. Money talks though, so fingers crossed this is an opening bid.

7.) 19 May 2017 19:31:05
Apparently the bid was placed a couple of weeks ago and has been refused. Maybe some others could show interest now.

8.) 19 May 2017 19:44:56
The timing of it all is genius.

9.) 19 May 2017 20:12:18
Come on usmanov! Really good news to see him trying to buy Kroenke!

10.) 19 May 2017 20:59:12
Derby you old sage you. Some of us are like visionaries. Lol.



09 Jun 2016 11:55:40
I was having a read through some of the other pages and found that the Man City page now has people posting, not all City fans I might add.

Anyway back on April 1st someone asked about Gundogan going to City which ended in them asking if they had any interest in Xhaka.

Ed02 gave a lengthy reply of interested clubs, which included City, Napoli and us but his last sentence of that reply said, but Arsenal will be looking for an early agreement.

Somewhat of a shame he will no longer post on here.


1.) 09 Jun 2016 12:06:40
Agree stoner mate. It was a big factor for me visiting this site as well as your banter ladies ;)

2.) 09 Jun 2016 12:40:14
It was a bit of a mine of information over on their rumours page Je, with ed02 answering numerous questions mate.

He also spoke about us having interest in two left backs, a guy called Guerreiro at Lorient and Rico Henry at Walsall.

Hopefully he's not totally done with us and will return again at some stage.

3.) 09 Jun 2016 14:40:05
maybe after two tranfer windows eh. maybe he's giving us the treatment madrid and athletico are due to endure.

4.) 09 Jun 2016 14:27:54
I hold my hands up and say I sent a post in regarding the attitude of certain Eds, at the time I never gave a thought of half the bull they were deleting and only a fraction was actually getting passed in to the page. I sincerely apologise for that. And I really do hope Ed02 returns to the page as the knowledge is second to none, although I do greatly appreciate Ed01 and Ed25s input.

5.) 09 Jun 2016 15:03:13

It's really strange the we have so much interest in the LB position, is Nacho going home? Is Gibbs off?

I hope ed02 comes back for the greater good of mankind.

6.) 09 Jun 2016 15:32:15
Je they're mostly very young lb's. Monreal is 30 I think. It makes sense to sign someone now.

7.) 09 Jun 2016 16:01:58
yes i also remember him being adament that chelsea wouldn't block cech coming to us, because abramovic respected his service and desire to remain in london. even though mourinho publicly stated he didn't want him to and when to myself and i'm sure a few others it seemed an odd transfer to allow when he could of been sold abroad.

8.) 09 Jun 2016 16:38:54
Our LB's are second rate, hence the need to sign a decent one and Rodriguez fits the bill.

9.) 09 Jun 2016 20:26:54
CS I agree mate, age completely slipped my mind and on that note yeah I get why we're on the lookout now, Guerrero- there's been a lot of rumours about this fella lately, talked very highly of but I haven't seen much of him to be honest.
Rodriguez- in my view we've got Gibbs who can do what he does, we need someone who can defend properly n not one who thinks of constantly getting assists.
If we where to go out n get a LB then Gaya from Valencia would be my pick :)

Who would you guys want?

10.) 10 Jun 2016 14:58:13
JG, Wendell from Leverkusen or Alex Telles from Galatasaray/ Inter. Both young Brazilian left backs with a lot of hype surrounding them. In an ideal world it would be a defender who can speak portugese and english, who can help Gabriel to play in the team (if the language barrier is still, for some reason, an issue) even if they don't play right next to each other.

11.) 10 Jun 2016 19:29:59
Interesting NEG, Brazilian? After our last Brazilian LB? Your brave :) just kidding mate.
Both super fast too if I remember rightly

I like kurzawa from PSG too n also Jetro willams from PSV

I wouldn't be to bothered if we didn't succeed in upgrading the LB position this summer, it can wait, we have far more important positions to upgrade.

I was just reading about the Police in Madrid having raised serious concerns that Spurs fans may take flares to the stadium on 1st June.

This is mainly because that's what they wore the last time they were in a European final.


1.) 15 May 2019 20:46:44

Stoner, please don't mention the golf cart. Little miss snowflake will have another meltdown.

8.) 16 May 2019 16:33:14
Madrid will be the first city hosting the CL final to make a financial loss. You’ll have one set of fans not spending anything and the other set robbing everything and everyone.

9.) 16 May 2019 16:444:27
Raver, as I have always advised you wait until you have actually won a trophy before bragging. I did suggest that you would beat Ajax in the semi and, although on paper Liverpool are odds on to win the CL, I have a sneaky feeling that the toot may miraculously win the CL.
As for us a EL win would be fabulous in a transition season, and would ensure a return to the CL and the riches it brings.
As for the gap, it's down to a solitary point.

10.) 16 May 2019 16:20:49
Don’t worry Sharpie I know how fragile he is so I’m not going to mention swimming naked in the fountain in Trafalgar square with either! 😉.

11.) 16 May 2019 18:23:52
Rg we haven't spent a penny in 2 years and have had to play at Wembley and milton Keynes this season due to the farce of the new stadium being built, to finish in the top 4 again and be in a champions league final is some achievement.

12.) 16 May 2019 19:06:47
Rav me old mate what’s Wembley or MK got to do with it? Aren’t the pitches green? Are the goals a different size . maybe the rules are different? Please explain x.

13.) 16 May 2019 20:01:30
Sharpie my jokes are below pants, commando wouldn't even cover it mate.

14.) 17 May 2019 10:43:06
Raver, I fully agree that the toot have done well in the circumstances you mention. However, runners-up are rarely remembered, even in the CL, apart from 2006, I would struggle to name the runners up in CL finals. Don't forget that although you haven't spent during the last two windows, you are still going to be £850-1000m in debt. During the season you dropped down from 3rd to 4th, obtained 5 fewer points, Arsenal closed the points gap from 14 the previous season to a solitary point and you lost 6 more league matches than during the previous season.

If you win the CL, I will congratulate you and the long toot trophy wait will be over. If you lose, the trophy drought continues.
Arsenal in a transition season have reached the EL final, obtained more points than the previous season and moved up a place, while closing the gap on the toot to a solitary point.
For both our sakes, it would be good if North London claimed both trophies and met in the super cup final in Istanbul.

15.) 17 May 2019 16:46:22
Fair play RG, I would love to see the super cup final between us as it's very rare and may probably never happen again to have 2 rivals competing for a top European trophy by winning the 2 top European cups, I for one think we will get smashed by Liverpool and I could see the Arsenal and Chelsea match going to pens.



10 May 2019 22:40:10
6000 ticket allocation at a stadium situated in the arse end of Europe with a capacity in excess of 68,000.

Are there more corrupt and out of touch sporting organisations that UEFA and those other clowns at FIFA.

What's the betting the stadium won't even be full.


1.) 10 May 2019 23:11:14
True mate but is anyone on this page actually going?
4 days by train? 68 hours driving or or if you want a direct flight you have to arrive 4 days before the game and come home 4 days after it too.
Evan on telly it's an 11pm kick off and if there isn't extra time isn't needed it's 1am before the trophy gets presented all in midweek when people have to be up for work the next morning.
Certainly wasn't chosen with fans f clubs likely to in mind that's for sure.

2.) 11 May 2019 00:00:10
Maybe fans should start a petition to get it moved to Wembley?

3.) 11 May 2019 06:21:49
G62 - to correct you yet again, kick off is at 8pm in the UK, not 11pm, which is the time in Azerbaijan.

4.) 11 May 2019 10:34:20
Lol RG you have no shame.

5.) 11 May 2019 11:34:49
Thanks RG, would you be kind enough to remind me and all other posters of this fact several thousand times between now and May 29th old chum :-) .

6.) 12 May 2019 06:08:15
G62 - If needs be.

7.) 12 May 2019 09:37:10
Thanks RG, your my hero :-)

8.) 12 May 2019 21:51:58
I will be there. I am going from Dubai however which makes it easier. I speculated at QF stage on a couple of general release tickets at about £85 a pop. Not sure exactly where I’ll be situated in relation to the 6600 fans. Flights about £200 return from Dubai which is a 3 hr flight.

RG I will note the kick off time. 😀.



28 Apr 2019 21:43:09
Unai Emery after the game;

"We worked, we prepared our game plan, 11 v 11 the match was going like we prepared. "

So he actually planned to be out played, out fought, over run and to have zero shots on target for the first 36 minutes.

And there was me thinking he never prepared. 🙄.


1.) 28 Apr 2019 22:17:19
To me he sounded like a man who didn't really know what to say but was thinking on his feet and trying to sound like he wasn't at a loss to know what to say, confused? So was I.

2.) 29 Apr 2019 10:11:09
Blokes a joke.



23 Apr 2019 06:56:35

Just to bring the discussion yesterday back to the top of the page as I note you didn't answer.

If, as you started to talk about our form in the Premier League I think it would be fair to say 2018 was, like I said earlier, an unfair comparison, fan protests, players not really turning up and Wenger announcing he was leaving.

Prior to that;

2017 - 75pts
2016 - 71pts
2015 - 75pts
2014 - 79pts

Did Wenger have Sokratis, Torreira, Leno, Lacazette, Aubameyang, Kolasinac or Guendouzi.

How close is Emery going to get to Wengers genuinely poorest season of 71pts.

So are we actually playing better football or defending any better than we did in those previous seasons that it would far fairer to compare and bare in mind, in your opinion Wenger was a busted flush in those seasons so in fact any of those totals should be easy to beat.

I realise I'm bringing the past into this but you are indicating there is an improvement, but an improvement on a farcical final season for Wenger.


1.) 23 Apr 2019 07:50:49
Stoner every member brings up the past when we lose mate lol and blames other people for poor tactics and team selections.

2.) 23 Apr 2019 09:39:04

your argument about Wenger not having the players you mentioned is somewhat weakened by the fact that every other team in the premier league also strengthens their squads! Its also worth mentioning that some players bought by Wenger towards the end of his era were bought with a reputation and failed to live up to it under his management (e. g Xhaka, Mustafi.

In my personal opinion we will get 9/ 12 remaining points, giving us 75. This should give us enough to get top 4 given both Man Utds and Chelseas poor form (plus they have to play each other which will hopefully be a draw and Man Utd have to play citeh)

3.) 23 Apr 2019 12:26:07
Colney mate,

What am I missing, what about this season isn’t a mirror image of the last god knows how many.

He’s just dishing up the same old same old no matter whose stronger, weaker, got a new manager or never bought a new player ala Spurs.

What’s different?

With our alleged best players playing during a 22 game unbeaten run we were still bloody hopeless at defending exactly as we’ve been bloody hopeless for years.

4.) 23 Apr 2019 17:29:35
Stoner we are and have been hopeless with certain players, we have been better with better players. The defence is a problem but its a player problem. Look at our games when we have had soc and kos in situ and look when they haven't. There is a world of difference.



20 Mar 2019 12:36:05

I'm on the waiting list for a season ticket at Arsenal.

I just had a call from the club asking if I wanted to buy a platinum season ticket as I was about FIFTEEN years away from getting a gold one.

How much I ask.

£2995 he says! 😱😂

So if anyone fancies a platinum ticket give em a call quick.


1.) 20 Mar 2019 20:50:43
Do you get prawn sandwiches included?

2.) 20 Mar 2019 22:51:15
No mate, you get a free drink and a programme. Since found out that was for a corner seat. If you want half way line it was £6000 a season.

3.) 21 Mar 2019 10:12:50
That's why there's no money, they're practically giving tickets away! 😂.

Not sure if you've already answered this but what's the score with Mustafi leaving, is he seen as not good enough, a fall out with someone or is he just not happy at Arsenal.

Thanks in advance mate.

I honestly don’t think the Spurs come back gets close to what Liverpool achieved.

Spurs nearly blew with poor set up and football and ended up playing hoof ball to Llorente in desperation against a young inexperienced team.

I still say congrats to them because being in the final is all that matters.

But to need 4 goals without conceding against Messi and co, to play their own game throughout, is head a shoulders the best comeback for me.

Our last 6 league games have been shocking, 4pts from a possible 18 and 3 of those when we were outplayed by 10 man Watford.

Some of the inane garbage posted in support of this season is as sad as our football.
