It seems were are linked yet again with Benzema. One hopes its nonsense.


1.) 20 Oct 2017 07:01:20
Seriously and no jibe intended, but what top player is going to come to your lot with all the uncertainty at the moment? Wenger short contract, Ozil possibly going, Sanchez leaving.

At least if Wenger had gone at the end of last season the rebuild would have already started.

2.) 20 Oct 2017 08:50:04
Can’t argue with that mate. Too much uncertainty at the club. I’d even had taken arsene rebuilding at the start of the season than this situation we are in.

3.) 20 Oct 2017 14:00:56
Raver wannabe 😂😂😂.

4.) 22 Oct 2017 20:11:08
so tell me again Jelfy, which British teams have won at the bernabeu in the Champions League. 2009 ring a bell. and no that wasn't the European cup. and don't rely on talk sport fella or Oddbod.

5.) 23 Oct 2017 16:36:09
Benzema a top player?



03 Jun 2016 20:36:16
It seems we have triggered Jamie Vardy's release clause. A steal at £20m. I wonder if Wenger really is going to open the chequebook. Vardy and Morata would be a statement of intent, no?


1.) 03 Jun 2016 20:44:33
Well, that what sky sports is saying but I still want morata too. Not too sure if vardy suits our game plan, saying that vardy still will be a great addition to any team.

2.) 03 Jun 2016 20:55:21
The release cluases aren't applicable in the premier league.

{Ed002's Note - Just to be clear - this is another misunderstanding about "clauses". I am not interested about going in to detail but you need to step back from worrying about "clauses" and "finances". I will say that there is interest in Vardy from Arsenal.}

3.) 03 Jun 2016 21:08:38
Thanks for coming back ed.

4.) 03 Jun 2016 21:20:26
Appreciate that Ed002.

5.) 03 Jun 2016 21:48:47
Thanks ed002.

6.) 03 Jun 2016 22:16:34
Welcome back Ed02

Not sure I want Vardy but if we sell Gibbs and Ox - we need some home grown talent.

7.) 03 Jun 2016 22:26:49
Lets hope this doesn't drag on all through the summer and is sorted quickly. No 20 mil and a pound offers. If he's our target then get him.

8.) 04 Jun 2016 11:12:05
Sounds positive from Stevie 😁.

9.) 04 Jun 2016 00:32:54
I am personally cautious about the Vardy interest. I'm not sure how he'd do in our system. Would much rather see us move for Lukaku.



29 Jul 2014 13:51:21
Arsenal will sign either Khedira, Pogba or Schneiderlin within a week according to some agent chappy I met in Clapham today. Could be nonsense, but he seemed fairly certain. He also mentioned potential bids for Carvalho and Costa. Arsenal have lots of fingers in lots of pies he reckons!


1.) No offence but sounds like he just said every name he could think of if there is enough s**t something has to stick

2.) How did you happen to bump into an agent and discuss transfers?



13 Jul 2014 17:35:36
Arsenal will sign Khedira once the WC is over, and Debuchy once NUFC source a replacement or Arsene makes a fuss. Along with a keeper, I suspect that will be our business this summer. The only possible addition will be Draxler, if he becomes available, and a few youth additions. Personally I would like Arsene to add another striker, as even with Sanchez, I fear we are a little short.


1.) A keeper, and maybe a center back will be added.

2.) I agree another striker and its remy all day long as he knows the league and he knows were the net is the type of player who comes on to score unless our fearless leader uses theo as a striker aswell but if vermalin leaves a cb and a left back monreal is poor and gibbs is injury prone



01 Sep 2013 13:18:41
Suarez rumours resurfacing. can't see it myself. The Benzema, Ozil and de Maria chatter appears to have gone quiet. Usually, there is quite a bit of talk in my part of NW London, but it's all quiet! Not sure if saying there are few rumours is actually a rumour at all! I cannot believe we will end this window with nothing of substance.


1.) There is a rumour floating about the crowd that another bid is going in for Suarez. wouldn't be too disappointed if we get him

2.) 01 Sep 2013 15:48:59
I know what you mean but Flamini and Sanogo have substance.

I thought I'd seen the worst. I really think that Wenger should go now. The players look lacklustre and resigned to failure; the club has the sense of decay about it that echoes the latter days of the Graham era. Decisive action needed now, even if we are stuck with a caretaker for the remainder of the season. So disheartened.


1.) 04 Mar 2018 15:48:05
Well Wemger won't resign and the board won't sack him!



01 Mar 2018 19:50:56
Stadium half empty for a big game like this. Unbelievable.


1.) 01 Mar 2018 19:55:24
Can't be the weather because the city fans are out in full numbers.

2.) 01 Mar 2018 20:19:55
Big game? You serious explain to me why I should drag my arse up there after the last few appearances this dribble have put forward?
How many games do you go to? I’ve had enough 3 nil down already it’s a joke! Wenger out tonight this team needs new ideas and now before we cock up our only hope in the Europa.

3.) 01 Mar 2018 20:37:42
Clockend, regardless of where you do or don't want to drag your backside, it is a big game? I can't think of a reason why it isn't. The point I was alluding to was that the turnout reflects the recent poor performances and that it's a telling occurrence. There is no need to call me out on anything since we seem to agree - notwithstanding the games I may or may not have attended.

4.) 01 Mar 2018 20:54:05
It’s not unbelievable that season ticket holders haven’t gone tonight we have had enough aswell as most fans this game didn’t sell out that tells you that all those empty seats are 90% season ticket holders, do the club care no because there already paid for this club at the moment is a disgrace and until Wenger goes nothing will change . And it’s big clubs but not a big game we are not in city’s league anymore.

{Ed001's Note - the club will care as a large proportion of the income from home games comes from the sale of merchandise and food & drink to the matchgoers.}

5.) 01 Mar 2018 23:22:56
it will hit home tho eds you guys did that when you walked out. this will only get worse. and no champions league.

6.) 02 Mar 2018 15:46:29
I had to collect my ticket from the booking office last night and the game was sold out, i saw some fans trying to buy tickets turned away. can you believe it!



03 Feb 2018 20:35:31
I have to admit I saw glimpses of why Arsene persists with Iwobi. It's raw, but it's there. Great performance, but I feel for Lacazette. :)


1.) 03 Feb 2018 22:19:38
Perhaps he feels he can't put the full on LMAO front 4 in there together as its just too attacking and feels Iwobi may be more inclined to track back a bit more and help Xhaka and Ramsey who will have to learn to be a lot more defensive minded (Not sure Xhaka is capable of this) in future games. Did not matter today as Everton were poor and were biltzed early but in future games we can't afford to be too open and leave huge gaps in midfield.

2.) 03 Feb 2018 23:30:11
I like that you are sticking up for the kid but at the moment and we can't keep waiting, i don't see what he brings to the team. He runs around like a headless chicken sometimes, he doesn't score and he doesn't create and that's what he is in the team for. He isn't a defender and he isn't a wide player.



31 Jan 2018 21:36:37
Nice to see Aubamayang signed, but having lost, Walcott, Sanchez, and Chamberlain (last window) , am I being a bit churlish in lamenting the fact we did not sign a wide player? Does anyone else think we look a little bit more one-dimensional rather than less? Just saying.




29 Jan 2018 18:44:19
Can we bring in Mahrez now. He is surely there for the taking and at 26 in his prime.


1.) 29 Jan 2018 18:56:28
That would be great plus a towering beast of a CDM!

2.) 29 Jan 2018 19:00:10
I’d love it. Mahrez on the left, Aubameyang centre and Lacazette on the right with all 3 interchanging. Then have Giroud in the middle from the bench and the pace of either of them on the wing as support men as a plan b, it would be epic!

As much as I like the idea of Vieira or Henry in the Managers seat at Arsenal, I think the case for experience is overwhelming. Just my opinion mind, but, inter alia: Ancelotti, Allegri, Rodgers, tick more boxes if we are to rebuild properly around the core players we would all like to stay. Simeone doesn't do it for me, and I doubt he would come to the UK anyway - I don't want to go from one extreme to the other. The more pressing concern is that if Wenger is to go at the end of the season, and I do not know how he can possibly stay, the club need to make plans now, not in June/ July. The new man needs to hit the deck running with targets pinpointed and players no longer needed on the transfer list.

I hope my fear that the club will fanny around and appoint someone in September after Bould has lost the first three games, is misplaced.

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.

I doubt it. For no other reason than Arsenal are incapable of securing a transfer in 12 hours! They find it hard enough over 12 weeks. I don't expect any more activity, but I'm happy to be wrong.

Josephs22 - We do not need to ballast the Aubamayang deal in order to afford it. Arsenal are in a transfer surplus currently, and that applies over the last two windows. Unless you imagine that we only have 30m worth of leverage, which would be absurd, I can't quite work out the logic of your claim.

He is out of the squad period. On his way to United. I would take anything Balague (I assume that is who you mean, correct me otherwise) says, with a pinch of salt, and the clubs history of buying 'big' players has come to nothing of late. I sense another window of being linked with the 'big' players we want (Griezmann, Draxler, Lemar, Fekir etc. etc. ) and signing the odd 20 year old 'for the future'. As you can see my mood is less than sanguine! ;)


{Ed025's Note - and its no wonder if you are watching the crap being served up today mate..

Take the point about Loew. At 58 Ancelotti may still have something to prove. I like Brendan Rogers, and I suspect he certainly has something to prove after Liverpool and the inherent limitations of the SPL. I'm just looking forward to a change tbh. ;)

Simneone is like going from one extreme to the other. I can see the attraction but he doesn't do it for me, not when there are more refined options like Loew and Ancelotti.

Couldn't agree more. Lacazette has done nothing to merit be dropped, and Wilshire has shown enough in recent outings to deserve a start ahead of the hapless Xhaka. We are unbalanced and paying the price for not having bought a wide player to replace the three we sold.


{Ed0333's Note - and everyone was saying it was a great transfer window for Arsenal. I agree mate I don’t think your team has the correct equilibrium but your not to far away. I’m sure your new scouting network will get things right in the summer.

Good points, but our failure to sign anyone is not based upon waiting for the better players to be available. If that were so we wouldn't be wading in with silly bids for Evans, or trying to prise the Roma defender away at the last minute. Going after the 'right' players, demands research, planning, and decisive action, something we by and large seem incapable of.

Final two paragraphs. Spot on.

Best, UC.
