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 wonder if the £40m only for summer transfers is a ruse, or a reflection of our fiscal paucity. If true, it shows a serious lack of ambition, and puts us out of contention for CL football for the foreseeable future. Sixth place is the new fourth. if that.


1.) 05 Feb 2019 15:44:34
The truth is, we will spend what we have, we have spent plenty in the past and not well and we are now paying for a poor transfer policy. I doubt the club will broadcast what it is going to spend, it may end up spending less or more, that will depend on other factors. We are the 3rd highest net spenders in the league, what goodd has that done us anyway.

2.) 05 Feb 2019 15:45:14
I think we all have to wait and see Urban mate last year it was well publicised we only had 50 million but we spent over 70 million.
It's obvious we are not super flush or at our best financially but that doesn't have to be a barrier to progress, if we spent another 70 million this summer and got the same value for money then it would make a huge difference to our squad strength, only problem is no Sven this time :- (.

3.) 05 Feb 2019 16:09:57
Plus you have factor in, we have "new" signings, chambers, bielik, smith rowe and nelson. If one of them is first team material, it will be helpful.

4.) 05 Feb 2019 18:50:59
True Steve and sometimes when your forced into giving players a chance it pays off as it did with Le Coq when next to Caz and Rob Holding was looking ok this when he got his chance through injury before his own injury.

5.) 05 Feb 2019 19:11:34
Im actually looking forward to seeing holding, nelson, bielik and chambers next year, i think one or two of them could be very good.

6.) 05 Feb 2019 20:04:13
All good points. I've had my sour p****d off hat on today. a good dose of realistic optimism is what needed. Cheers guys. :)

7.) 05 Feb 2019 20:17:58
We all get like that sometimes Urban mate and others can help change our mood.
Take me I was very happily enjoying this first season under Dick until Sharpie made me realise that in reality absolutely nothing had improved with Dick taking over, suddenly I realised Sharpie was spot on 100% correct and I wasn't happy at all, now I'm no longer enjoying this season, I've woken up smelled the coffee and am every bit as discontent miserable and fed up with Dick as was with Arsene.
Cheers for that Sharpie, your are pal :-)

8.) 06 Feb 2019 05:54:22
Win, lose or draw we will all still be behind them Urban whether we like it or not :)

9.) 06 Feb 2019 12:11:38
Everyone is always blaming the Sharpie!

10.) 06 Feb 2019 12:21:30
G62, sometimes when you read negative comments you need to do the metaphorical equivalent of putting your fingers in your ears whilst shouting lalala can't hear you. works wonders. Also works physically. i do it everyday when the news comes on. but perhaps don't do it if you have a job such as a pilot though.

11.) 06 Feb 2019 20:17:47
I know your right Epping mate and I do avoid the tv news if I possibly can and never read newspapers or any online news from any quater, it's just Sharpie I can't ignore, ever since we agreed on a Alice and Villanelle, especially Villanelle I'm struggling to find fault with the blokes opinions. :-)
I'm starting a mindfulness corse in a couple of weeks time so hopefully that will help me ignore him in the future :-)



03 Feb 2019 16:34:19
24 bloody seconds.


1.) 03 Feb 2019 16:38:10
Poor from Iwobi.

2.) 03 Feb 2019 16:43:50
Level :-) now sort it out because we look totally disorganised like under 10s just starting out on a fill size pitch for the first time.

3.) 03 Feb 2019 16:47:32
Why don't we have any fullbacks on both wings City have players totally unmarked, Guendouzi is trying to fill in at left back out of desperation.

4.) 03 Feb 2019 17:19:45
Totally unmarked player on our right flank provides the service for the totally unmarked Aguero to score at our back post, it does make you wonder what happens on the training pitch all week every week and why we concede so many tap ins to unmarked players.

5.) 03 Feb 2019 17:22:11
Lich and iwobi have been absolutely appalling first half.

6.) 03 Feb 2019 17:25:11
Lichtsteiner is clueless.

7.) 03 Feb 2019 17:39:15
Right at the start of the second half there it is, City player totally unmarked on the right well inside the box but only City's poor final ball spared us, and Guendouzi collects and carries the ball out of trouble once again.
School boy ball watching and unaware of what's going on from our defence, as we've got used to seeing both under Arsene and now Emery, it's so frustrating to see.

8.) 03 Feb 2019 21:26:54
It’s ok 62 as it’s not Emery’s fault as he’s only had the squad 6 months and it’s Wenger fault. :)

9.) 03 Feb 2019 23:42:16
You are so right sy, it is wengers fault and it will take major surgery to sort the rubbish he left behind, that's obvious. The guy with his mate gazidis have done a right job on us.



03 Feb 2019 16:30:43
My least favoured formation, especially with Mustafi and Liechsteiner on the team sheet. These are the games you want Ramsey and a productive Ozil in the side. negative I know, but this shoes the inadequacy of the last month's efforts.

However. COYG.




30 Dec 2018 20:31:53
Gary Nevill makes a lot of sense here, speaking early on in the season. It gives, on the basis of what we have seen yesterday, a strong indication of what we might expect to see in this window and the next. Although he does not explicitly refer to Klopp, the comparisons of Emery's task is relative to where Liverpool were 3 years ago.





02 Dec 2018 13:15:26
Interesting line up today. I think it indicates the inevitable sale of Ozil and Ramsay in January. If neither are preferred for a game like this, it begs the question what games they are first choices for. Do we look better with both Laca and Pea? Thoughts anyone?


1.) 02 Dec 2018 13:47:07
Like to see both on the pitch as Laca creates space for others with his movement. Think PEA benefits from that. Both in starting 11 and both through the middle - 4 4 2 or 3 5 2 or 3 4 1 2.

Hmm Ed you have lost me there. The only Ayzenberg I know is an advertising agency. But I think I get the point.

If we had concentrated on a wide player, why have signed Suarez, and currently seek the signature of Nkunku, neither of which fit that profile. I can't say I have seen much of either to be fair, so I'm not sure if I ought to feel pleased or not.


{Ed002's Note - Be Ayzenberg they were also seen to be needed.}

Here's hoping for some last minute transfer wizardry. Despite what I said above, a fresh face would give us all a bit of a boost.

We are unlikely to buy anything that is an upgrade on what we have. And if we are not willing to strengthen the defence with properly funded recruits, the future looks somewhat bleak. It certainly won't be rectified by half arsed loan+buy later deals for ageing players. Moreover, if Ramsey stays until the summer, we do not need midfielders as much as we require defenders. The back four is the existential crisis facing the club and they have yet to show interest in resolving it.

Sure, I take the point, but at this stage of the game, should we really be spending so much energy on a 'punt'. Anyway, fair enough. :) Best, U.


{Ed001's Note - to me I would agree with you, but this is Arsenal we are talking about and they do not work well in the transfer market or on the pitch a lot of the time. Organisation is sadly lacking at every level of the club.}

Lichtsteiner is dreadful, and a dirty player at times as well.
