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.

Stoner

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.

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!

Stoner

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!

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.

Stoner

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
Stoner.

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.

Guys,

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.

Stoner

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! 😂.


 

 

17 Mar 2019 15:31:27
Well done Coco the clown, sorry I mean Stan Kroenke.

Get rid of Mislintat and fail to get Monchi, way to go in showing your intent to win big with the Arsenal.

The bloke is a C bomb.

Stoner

So onto Wednesday and United, only a couple of days rest, that can be a factor if you let it.

Will be another big step for Emery and the team.

United clearly not in a good place so let's hope no complacency sets in like it did against Wolves as Mourinho will be all over that.

Has to be a point at the absolute minimum. No Xhaka as he is suspended. Will no doubt mean Guendouzi starts. Did Aaron do enough to keep his place, he currently has most assists in Premier League.

Will Lacazette be fit enough for the full 90, no doubt another big test we have failed so many times in previous seasons.

Stoner

1.) 03 Dec 2018 14:54:46
Agree Stoner, Gouendouzi and torreira are a tasty pair and the future of arsenal. 3 at the back suits our central defenders and it also suits Bellerin and kol. We need battlers on Wednesday against the gourillas in the utd team, the shape is better for us, i hope he can play it. Utd are dross at the moment but are still capable of beating most teams on a given day.


2.) 03 Dec 2018 16:07:52
Guendouzi in and 3 4 1 2 formation with Ramsey playing his most suited position in place of Mesut behind Lacasette and Pea.
To be that's our best current 11 simply because Mesut ain't right for whatever reason.


3.) 03 Dec 2018 16:21:45
Agree with both of you, we definitely don’t need anyone coasting in this fixture.

It will mean our bench isn’t as strong but hey, can’t have everything.


4.) 03 Dec 2018 16:30:56
I hope Mustafi is fit for Wednesday as three at the back gives us a more solid look. Yes, Guendouzi in for suspended Xhaka. Assuming we play 3-4-3, which three should we start with up front? Ramsey, Lacazette and Aubameyang?
I am not keen on Mkhitaryan, but perhaps Iwobi will start again in place of Ramsey?
I believe United will turn up against up, which is irritating as they have been noticeably absent recently.
It's interesting, I only thought of Ozil as an afterthought.


5.) 03 Dec 2018 16:35:32
Yes gunner, I'd plumb for a 352 of sorts. I would like to think myki had a point to prove and played off the strikers, he could be effective. I do think our front 2 or 3 need to really get at utd because they can really hurt them. We always in the past few years seem to make heavy weather at OT. We need to be more up for this and punish their staleness.


6.) 03 Dec 2018 19:06:00
If Jose can't get his United team up for a Man utd v Arsenal game then they are a seriously bad condition.
Because of embarrassing past experiences at the hands of both United and Mourinho over the last decade or so most of us can only manage to be cautiously optimistic but should we get 3pts Wednesday then the United fans patience will be tested to an all new limit under Jose.
For Jose it's a must not lose game regardless of how good or bad they play, they can't get away with defeat at home to the team they have been so used to humiliating so often in recent years.


 

 

03 Oct 2018 16:14:20
Evening Ed01 mate,

Wanted to ask you and the gooners on this page a question.

I've seen a few United fans suggest that Wenger would be a good replacement for Mourinho.

I know United fans in the main feel they have a far better squad than us.

So question is, do you think Wenger could do a job there, supposed better players with a bigger budget or do you think he is definitely finished as a top manager?

Stoner

{Ed001's Note - short term he could stabilise things, but long term his lax coaching would just lead to them falling backwards the way Arsenal were imo. He would appease the players and sort out the divisions in the squad, bringing it all together initially, but he is too soft on the players and people like Pogba just take the piss.}


1.) 03 Oct 2018 16:48:30
Do you think united regret re signing Pogba Ed?

{Ed001's Note - very much so, he spent the summer trying to force a move away.}


2.) 03 Oct 2018 17:50:22
It looks as if it’s going a similar way with Sanchez! That’s two huge wage bills looking to make the veron signing look great 🤭.


3.) 03 Oct 2018 17:56:15
Thanks mate, it would definitely be a weird one if he went there, I’m pretty sure he won’t though.

Will be watching the game tonight, I’m going 3-1 to you but know you won’t make a prediction! Haha.

{Ed001's Note - I will just hope you are right!!}


4.) 03 Oct 2018 18:13:54
I would love Maureen to stop for the next five years and if he was sacked, i would love Wenger to be their manager. I think Wenger is perfect for utd, like i think Maureen is.


5.) 03 Oct 2018 18:32:02
Mourinho we want you to stay, we want you to stay 😂.


6.) 03 Oct 2018 18:35:49
I’m with you Steve, I want all their current players, bar De Gea, to stay too! 😂.


7.) 03 Oct 2018 18:58:39
It would be tough for Jose to take being sacked and replaced by Arsene :-)
If we think he's the angry one now just think what being dumped for Arsene would do for his ego.


8.) 03 Oct 2018 21:56:14
Wenger is way past his sell by date. Mourinho is clearly on borrowed time, Zidane would be a fine replacement.


9.) 03 Oct 2018 22:25:39
I'm no man utd fan by a very very long way but if somebody had to turn them around, if it was inevitable and unstoppable, there is absolutely nobody I'd rather do it than Arsene Wenger.
It won't be Arsene who replaces Jose but if it was I'd find it very difficult not to wish him the absolute best in this season's champions league in which Arsenal aren't involved.


 

 

05 Aug 2018 17:13:33
Just watched the Community Shield, should think 3 points guaranteed next week, City looking very poor! 😂😂

Interesting to see Hudson-Odoi get zero from Walker whilst he gave Bellerin the run around.

Also great to see the ref John Moss has spent the summer getting into shape.

Shame it's the same unfit round one he was in last year! 😱😉.

Stoner

1.) 05 Aug 2018 18:42:13
Probably took his surname literally and spent most his days lying around rocks.


2.) 05 Aug 2018 19:47:48
Poor old Hector, he's in for a long hard season or even Arsenal career no matter how hard he trys or however much effort he puts in for the team.


3.) 05 Aug 2018 21:04:27
I find Bellerin very weak for a defender, i like my defenders to assert themselves and want to defend like its a crime for someone to get past you. I also think he freezes when he defends because he is never as quick at running defending as he is going forward. He is very fast on the training ground apparently but he gets left for dead too many times when players run at him.


4.) 05 Aug 2018 21:38:41
I hear all that Steve yet still he continues to be linked with City and Barcelona persistently, the lad obviously has his weaknesses but he's so often our furthest defender forward when we lose the ball yet somehow managers to very often be our last defender when the opposition attack ends, what happens to all the defenders and midfielders in between where Hector starts off from and finishes up at?
Personally I think he's an Ox type player who will only be seen at his best post Arsenal, I'm not quite sure where or why Belerin lost the Arsenal fans because the effort is always there even when it's no where near as apparent in other players.


5.) 05 Aug 2018 23:27:59
Personally, i think he is a right footed kieran gibbs gunner. He won't ever play for a top top team, after an early fanfare and false dawn.


6.) 06 Aug 2018 00:44:47
I fully agree with Steve r. Bellerin was a converted winger and Gibbs was converted from a midfield player and neither player can tackle, nor do they possess any defensive awareness, Lichtsteiner is a proper RB, the problem is age is against him.
We still need to sign a RB, a LB and a CB.
Perhaps if we sign Nzonzi, we can paper over the cracks with Torreira and Nzonzi providing a defensive shield for the CB's.
Rodriguez would be a decent signing for the LB position. Whilst Vida impressed during the World Cup Finals.


7.) 06 Aug 2018 11:24:55
Thats the modern day fullback for ya stevie, a winger in disguise.


8.) 06 Aug 2018 23:22:44
Valencia, is a converted winger but he can tackle and does his job with authority. No comparison to bellarin, same goes for walker.

Ed01,

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.
