Surely not? Not even we can let this happen. 27 minutes gone and we are rocking like a 60s band.




12 Feb 2018 22:14:57
At the current rate of exchange for pts per game finishing 4th place is going to take 76 to 77pts this season, for us that would mean taking 31pts from a 33 which of course is beyond reasonable possibility, but it's going to be a very interesting fight between Spurs, Liverpool, Chelsea and even Utd to avoid finishing 5th this season.


1.) 13 Feb 2018 02:34:33
We need to take points off City in 2 weeks, but thankfully one or both of Man U/ Chelsea will drop points. We need to take it one week at a time in the league and keep our eyes on the Europa league final. After last season I have stopped believing in miraculous 4th place charges in the last 10 weeks but winning the Europa and the league cup would still constitute a very successful season if we miss out on 4th. Our winter business has made me slightly hopeful, keep the faith mate.

If there is any truth in reports that Enrique really does want to join a Premier League club next season and again If true that both Arsenal and Chelsea want his services which one would he choose?

If history is anything to go by he would have a far longer to build and deliver at Arssnal but less resources while at Chelsea his chances of short term success would be far greater long term magement at Chelsea usually consists of 2 full seasons if your lucky regardless of what you achieve in that period.


1.) 12 Feb 2018 16:17:53
Ive read chelski and psg, so next. Lol. I think ancelotti will be our manager and he isn't my first choice but i'm desperate.



04 Feb 2018 08:52:50
Anyone Notice pea start to flap his arms when Kos scored then stop himself?
I think his initial reaction was frustration that Kos had taken his goal but then quickly composed himself and joined in the celebrations.
Hungry or selfish?
I think either way he will be really good for Arsenal.


1.) 04 Feb 2018 11:42:53
All the best strikers are selfish like that and want to score all the goals. It is good for us as I think PEA will become a proper fix in the box.

2.) 05 Feb 2018 09:29:20
it was a celebration mate, not a tantrum - let's give the guy more than 5 minutes before we start trying to slate him.

3.) 05 Feb 2018 10:25:40
I initially thought that g62. But just watched replays and his fists were clenched and smiling.

4.) 05 Feb 2018 18:04:37
Anyone would be disappointed in that position, i'd have been gutted myself. If he'd been here a year i would wven care if he moaned, proper strikers want to score the goals.
But its his first game and he didn't act like ronaldo, he celebrated every goal with his team mates.

5.) 06 Feb 2018 21:45:36
Saw it too mate and agree with Skywalker, it was a celebration, it was like he tensed his arms out as in “Yeah get in”.



19 May 2017 19:52:03
Got to say this will he won't he saga surrounding Arsene is as difficult to predict as any suspense film I've seen, every time you think you know for sure how it's going to end the story takes another twist that makes you reassess your opinion yet again.
I'm now going for a twist in the tail where Arsene takes off his mask revealing his true identity as being Simon Brodkin all along,

CSKA for us which is all we could ask for at this stage plus Liverpool and City which is a mouth watering tie for fans of both teams and neutrals alike with the bonus being a premier league SF garenteed.


1.) 16 Mar 2018 12:35:18
Nice short bus ride to Moscow than? 😁.

Just avoid the polonium-210 burgers on sale around the ground! 😱.

Not sure how safe it is for the fans to travel there, especially now.

4.) 16 Mar 2018 13:55:52
In the circumstances i can't think of a worse draw. Football wise, its a relatively good draw, politically (and that will be significant) it is a lemon.

5.) 16 Mar 2018 16:50:22
Same applies as to the World cup simply don't go.
I know there are some fans who pride themselves on never missing a game anywhere, Robbie from Arsenal fan tv comes straight to mind he's everywhere Arsenal go but sometimes you've just got to let common sense prevail.

{Ed033's Note - There has been an anti Russia agenda since Trump was inaugurated. Don't believe the hype, wear a big clock around your neck.

6.) 16 Mar 2018 23:25:27
Euro 2016 was enough for me to think England should have played the under 21s in the qualifying rounds and hopefully failed to make the finals but be in good shape for euro 2020 Ed033 mate.
Trump or no Trump 2016 was a taster.

7.) 16 Mar 2018 23:46:05
Thank you ed033 I have eluded to that in the above posts. When gods of other cultures pose no threat the next main threat is language👍🏻.

{Ed033's Note - they control our language and thoughts via political correctness



15 Mar 2018 22:52:18
Arsenes comments after the game? Can't disagree with anything he said, fair reflection of penalty and how much he hopes to avoid Athletico in tomorrow's draw.
No bravado no pretending just saying it like it is.
Arsene what's happend to you? What ever it is important like it.




11 Mar 2018 15:08:39
Troy Deeney! That's the problem with going out on limb to pick fights that don't concern you.
Don't disagree with what he said about Arsenal in the past but do question his or any current players wisdom in going out on a linb to critise others.


1.) 11 Mar 2018 18:37:20
Hes a arsenal fan gunner, he missed it on purpose. Lol.

2.) 11 Mar 2018 19:01:01
I bet bet his boy is giving him so stick tonight Steve :-)



09 Mar 2018 09:29:21
I see the Arsenal in camp are back in full voice again this morning and full of warnings about the consequences of driving Arsene out of the club and how we will go into an even more steep decline once Arsene isn't our manager, I'm not quite sure why they think Arsenal football club are so tiny that only Arsene can make up top 7 but they obviously do think this is the case.
I never for one moment though the 88% in favour of getting rid of Arsene was anywhere near accurate, Arsene Wenger support amoung 50% of the Arsenal fans is rock solid just not as vocal on a daily basis as those who want change.
All those getting excited about a change of management this summer need to realise when push comes to shove the Arsene in camp will make themselves heard, they don't bother with all the daily shadow boxing but when it comes to an actual fight that still carry a very significant punch.
The battle to do whay it takes to makr Arsenal football club competive again is when it finally arrives going to be very fiercely contested.




05 Mar 2018 14:06:51
Who's your nominations for Arsenal player of the season so far?
:-ldifficult isn't it :-)
I'd have to go for Sanchez still, simply can't think of anyone who's done better than Alexis even though he didn't want to be here.


{Ed0333's Note - Tough decision that one mate.

1.) 05 Mar 2018 14:30:25
Nacho for me.

2.) 05 Mar 2018 14:47:13

3.) 05 Mar 2018 14:48:15
Id probably give Monreal a shout. Not sure anyone else has been as consistent considering the awful season. Grabbed a few goals and assists, played in back 3 and as LB when reverting to a back 4. Hasn't exactly set the world alight don't get me wrong, but also hasn't done too much wrong either.

That was proper tough mind.

4.) 05 Mar 2018 15:30:48
Not original but Nacho only one who looks like he genuinely both tries and cares COYG.

5.) 05 Mar 2018 16:30:44
I make you boys right, Monreal is the only candidate that carries any credibility.

6.) 05 Mar 2018 17:12:27
Wilshere as runner up? He hasn't been too bad since breaking into the team. Shows how crap we have been for me to say wilshere as our second best player lol.

7.) 05 Mar 2018 17:20:43

He hasn't put a foot wrong all season.

8.) 05 Mar 2018 18:38:41
I would go with Nacho. I also wonder whether he could be played as a Defensive Midfielder as well? I mean he can tackle, is experienced enough not to wonder out of position, wants to win, and surely no worse than Xhaka or Wilshire?

9.) 05 Mar 2018 19:06:53
I think it should be cancelled this year. I would ne embarrased to be given an accolade like that after the gutless performances. The only 3 for me would be sanchez, monreal or wilshire at least they have put effort in.

10.) 05 Mar 2018 19:25:45
I don't see why not give Nacho a go as DM epping mate, absolutely nothing to lose this season trying anything and everything out that might have half a chance of coming off.
Jack is most definitely in the running for worst after Sanchez and Monreal.
Prehaps we could rename it as player not quite as bad as the rest of the season :-)

11.) 05 Mar 2018 20:18:21
Sorry that was meant to read Jack in the running for Least Worse after Monreal and Sanchez:-)

12.) 05 Mar 2018 14:19:47
Isn't it Ed033 mate, it's difficult to think of a player it wouldn't seem silly giving it to.
Monreal at a push?

{Ed0333's Note - if you give it to Sanchez that would about sum up the absurdity at Arsenal at the moment. Player of the season award given to a player whose gone to one of your biggest rivals.

In the absence of a top manager like Allegi or Simeone wanting to come in Vieira is as good as chioce as any in my opinion.
The fans would unite behind him immediately which could only be good for the club.
Maybe that is the most important job of all for our next manager, getting everyone back on the same side again.
Arsene has unfortunately become the very thing that keeps the club split down the middle and no organisation be it business political party or football club can ever function well when it's devided by infighting on a daily basis as Arsenal have been for years now.
Arsene is the obstacle to a united Arsenal fan base and that isn't ever going to change one way or the other now.

Once the announcement is made we should all let the anger and frustration go and consecrate on parting on the best note possible.
Let bygones be bygones remember the good times let go of the bad times and start looking forward to the fresh start we've been dreaming of for years.

If was an Everton fan I'd be quite open to the idea ( not that I believe there is any real truth in the story in the Star who are not renowned for their factual stories)
Yes you'd have to think look how he's taken Arsenal backwards but also he'd be coming in a new club not in a position of great power but with an opportunity to repair his more recent image and I'm sure if it was to happen Arsene would be more open to accepting help that Everton thought necessary to give him.
If he'd allowed others to advise him and have an input at Arsenal he might well not be in the position he's in right now.
We need fresh ideas and ways of doing things while a fresh start might be good for Arsene too, personally if it happend I wish Arsene well and hope he finishers runner up in the league cup fa cup and premier league next season with Everton.

arbie I think Usmamov was pro Arsene to keep himself popular among Arsenal fans at that time, if Usmamov had got control 2 seasons back Arsene wouldn't be our manager today in my opinion.

Without having a go at Per he's not the ideal man to lecture anyone on standing up and being counted, if I was a player and he was lecturing me I'd ask him a few questions about some of his own actions in an Arsenal shirt.
Adams Keowen Wrighty might have carried more weight.

Hi Welsh mate long time no read mate :-) hope you're all good Geeza.
Wow Arsene really is in trouble when he's lost your unconditional support and even your patience is wearing thin.

Fair comments Ed mare.


{Ed001's Note - Scottish football has all the ingredients to be a success, other than the quality of players. It is fast, faster than the English league and often the games have more passion and intensity. If they had the income to improve the quality of player, or to hang on to the better players, they would have a very watchable league.}

True Ed001 or have championship north (Scotland) and Championship South (England) as they do in the conference league. 2 promoted from each league each season to the English premier league and obviously 4 relegated from the premier league.
Celtic could always win the championship North and decline promotion if they wish :-)


{Ed001's Note - I am not sure it would be a good idea doing that. It is more exciting when it is rare, plus the idea was to make their league more competitive, rather than just get rid of it.}

Very true Stephen mate, but when you consider they keep winning titles regularly with their current style of low tolerance shape up quickly or browse shipped out mentality it's difficult to say they got it wrong over all.
Chelsea have no patience with youths, managers or big money signings while we seem to be the exact opposit to Chelsea in all those departments.
The Chelsea mentality is far from perfect which is reflected every other season as they yo yo between brilliant and bewildering but it has proved more successful than our own giving huge salaries to young players we hope will come good one day but who none have been good enough to lift us into competiveness yet.
Chelsea have no patience at all while ours seems to be endless with players and manager alike.
Ballance between the two would seem to be worth a bash for both clubs in my opinion.

Sanogo as a suggestion how to improve the Scottish league competiveness, would it not be possible and of benefit to both parties if the smaller Club ( all but Celtic and Ranges) formed a partnership with English premier sides.
There has been talk of allowing premier league under 23 teams (reserves as they used to be called) to compete in the lower English leagues as is done in Spain but how about if say Arsenal and Kilmarnock for argument sake formed a partnership where on a month by month basis half a dozen players were loan swapped between the clubs.
The likes of Nelson and Chambers would get regular mens football while Kilmarnock might send half a dozen younger players the other a way for some big club experience.
This or something similar could benefit everyone involved and lead to more Scottish players in the English premier league eventually which would also be good for the Scottish national team long term.


{Ed001's Note - better probably putting the Scottish teams into the League Cup and making that comp more relevant?}
