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.

Three games left; we'll need to win them all, and hope Chelsea slip up. Sorry for stating the obvious.


1.) 25 Apr 2019 01:23:56
UC there is a good chance there will be more slip ups, that's also stating the obvious. Lol. The only thing we can hope we do is win our last three games and see where that leaves us. I think to achieve that we need a little bit of luck and a lot of hard work.

2.) 25 Apr 2019 06:00:09
Or just a well coached defence maybe? Sorry for stating the obvious. 😏.

3.) 25 Apr 2019 07:50:09
Disappointing result, but Man U and Chelsea play at the weekend, so points have to be dropped, whilst we still have a better goal difference than both clubs. I don't believe we will need to win all 3, probably 2 wins and a draw would probably be sufficient, as that would leave us on 73 points, and a goal different of at least +12. Man U can reach the same points total if they win all 3 matches and their final 2 are against Huddersfield and Cardiff. Whilst Chlesea could reach 76 points if they win all 3 matches, but they are tricky; Man U (a) , Watford (h) and Leicseter (a) .
Both Arsenal and Chelsea have the added difficulty of EL semis to throw into the mix.
I believe the Leicester match will be crucial, lose and our hopes of 4th are over.

4.) 25 Apr 2019 08:08:39
If Chelsea finish 4th on we both reach the EL final does that mean we would qualify for the CL?

{Ed002's Note - Not without winning it.}

5.) 25 Apr 2019 09:05:30
More slip ups from us I think.

6.) 25 Apr 2019 09:41:12
If we can't beat Palace or Wolves, why would anyone think we can beat Leicester or Burnley away, unless both teams allow their wives/ children to play instead, and even then, it might still be a bit too physical for our gutless team.

7.) 25 Apr 2019 10:31:50
Would help if the wall faced the right way on free kicks instead of turning their backs.

8.) 25 Apr 2019 10:49:59
4th place is becoming or already has become the good fortune race because niether of the 3 teams involved have had a good season by their own or each othrers standards.
Chelsea United and Arsenal are and always have been (in my living memory) big clubs even if the they haven't always had good or successful teams.
Yes Chelsea and United have been relegated and both known times in the wilderness as have Arsenal when we went from double winners 72 to also rans until George arrived.
All 3 have known worse times but no one can for one minute deny that this season has been of an extremely poor standard by all 3 clubs.
Each are all involved in top 4 chasing by virture of the others incompetence rather than anything that is to be admired.
Sarri is under pressure despite it being his first season and still being in the race for top 4 with 3 games to go and a EL semi final still to play for, he hasn't reached the required standard at Chelsea
Huge questions are being asked about Ole now the feel good factor post Jose has gone, Ole again hasn't reached the required standards at United
And if this standard isn't good enough for Chelsea and United fans why should it be acceptable or worse still seen as successful in Arsenal fans eyes?
Many have forgotten just how big a club we are and if this season is seen by anyone as a good season I think they are one those who have forgotten.
If we are honest we are no further forward than 12 months ago but fortunately for us and Chelsea United are much much worse so a top 4 gap has appeared by good fortune.

9.) 25 Apr 2019 11:28:18
62 mate, I think we might still be in the top 4 race because Chelsea and United are having an awful season just like us, if they have been better we will be miles away.



08 Apr 2019 14:33:28
Quite a bit of drama about our poor performance yesterday. But it was a poor performance with some key players missing and a team which has had the same weaknesses all season. So nothing particularly surprising about that performance, but I agree, it's disappointing. Let's not forget, we didn't make the top four last season, nor did we look like doing so, so our current position in the top four, despite yesterdays result, should invoke a degree of positivity.

Yes, Chelsea (if they are able) and ManU will strengthen in the summer; it remains to be seen if the Spuds are able to afford much after £1b on a stadium. But, if we don't address the serious problems in defence, midfield, and the lack of width, then it will be obvious what the ambitions of the club are, and what the future is likely to resemble. But that future is not going to be determined by a poor performance against a tricky opponent away.


1.) 08 Apr 2019 16:09:11
Everything that happens is a learning process, some things can be sorted and some need change, in personell or/ and structure. Like you say, last year we were never really involved in fourth, this year surprisingly we are. If it comes off great, if it doesn't, i'm sure enough has been seen to see what can be accomplished in the summer. We still have an exciting period to come between now and the end of the season to come and the truth is anything can happen. We are in the mix for various accomplishments still and that's great. We are blooding and relying on young players and that also has to be great going forwards. Both Amn and Gouendouzi made errors yesterday along withe nearly all the players. Some of the vitriolic write ups i have read on the internet from bogus or infantile sites, slagging and picking on the younsters, especially amn are fit for the gutter. These lads are learning every game from every mistake, something some of our elder players don't seem to. This season is a learning season for all after years of one regime that had run its course. i'm looking forward to the last few weeks of the season and beyond. Yesterday was a defeat, let's move on and see if we can recover from the defeat like we have so far this season. The away form is massive and the players have to find a way of dealing with their confidence and emotions when they aren't at home and quickly.

2.) 08 Apr 2019 16:28:22
Steve. Couldn't agree more.

3.) 08 Apr 2019 16:39:45
Good posts lads.

4.) 08 Apr 2019 20:35:14
Would 75 points be enough?
Win our 2 home games plus 1 away game then getting a point in the other 3 away games would be a very good return for us considering our home/ away ratio of remaining games.
18 points up for grabs and personally I think 12 points will be needed to see off 2 of United Chelsea and Spurs.

5.) 08 Apr 2019 20:44:22
Gunner, i think two home wins and two away wins would be great and we then see if it is good enough. It usually is for fourth but 75 points would be good first season.

6.) 08 Apr 2019 21:58:39
I actually agree Steve 75 points season 1 would be an excellent return.
Ultimately we all know where our problems really lay, exactly the same place they have done for years now and we really need to see some real genuine improvement their next season more than anything else mate.
We can't keep relying on our oppents attackers to finish poorly.

7.) 08 Apr 2019 22:12:03
Gunner, i would like to think we won't be relying on mustaffi, monreal or al ninny next year at least. If that is so, an obvious improvement will naturally take place. Mustaffi is not a calming presence, monreal is past it as a defender and al ninny is just rubbish.

8.) 08 Apr 2019 22:24:07
I do think that mustaffi and monreal are that dodgy, if we do have to rely on them, we won't improve. Both are capable but also culpable.

9.) 08 Apr 2019 23:44:00
Remove from squad - Licht, Mustafi, Carl, Elneny, Granit, Cech, Nacho

Part of squad not starting 11 material - Kos, Guendouzi, Mkhitaryan, Iwobi, Welbeck,

Gone - Rambo

Never arrived - Suarez

Build team around or sell - Özil

Major works required in the summer.

10.) 08 Apr 2019 23:26:43
Yep - plus Elneny and Guendouzi can’t start next season while Elneny should be sold.

3rd or 4th - who cares unless we compete. The above two should not be near our starting eleven. Guendouzi runs and runs but gives away possession and caught out of place - his time will come but we won’t compete until we get leaders in our spine.

Add Welbeck to the list of not good enough as well as a Granit.

We need a new captain - why is Özil captain when a Sokratis displays the passion and aggression needed.

What’s the point of being in UEFA cup to never compete.

Let’s aim high and set the bar high.

75 points is useless when your defence means you will never compete. When the opposition improves, the bar moves.

Ok first season but no issues Es addressed - lack of tactics, passion, pressing, leadership and defending. Sorry to be negative but that’s the truth.

Too little time to correct it ( one season ) but to be honest - Emery has done very little to suggest he’s the man. Hopefully next season is judgement season and he delivers as I have nothing against him but he’s not earned more than that as displayed nothing to warrant anything else. Let’s also be jones - his last window was a disaster.



05 Feb 2019 12:47:57
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 :-)

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.

Astonishing amount of time and energy put in to the pursuit of Suarez. to simply sit him on the bench and pay a chunk of his wages. Did they think they were getting something else? Why was their information so poor? Bizarre.

Are we talking about the former Real Pepe, 36, a red card every other game and all round dirty player? Or, have I missed a trick and the talk is of someone else?

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.}

There has certainly been improvement from Iwobi this year, whether that suggests any more development remains to be seen. He is however, one of the few players that goes past players with pace and disrupts defences. He makes more chances than he did last year, and if he could improves his decision making (by training his brain Steve ;) , and especially shooting, he cold become a very useful player. I hope so.

The run in is certainly a challenge. But it would be worse if it were City, Chelsea and ManU away. All the games are eminently winnable and win them we ought to.

Absolutely. Restore the natural balance, and who knows, our run in is not exactly unkind - 3rd would be a great first EPL season for Dick.
