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,




17 Apr 2017 19:30:54
In my best Victor Meldrew voice
" I don't BELIEVE IT "
We finally get round to playing a formation that suits the players we have and best covers our weaknesses but then don't select the best 11 suited to carry it out?
Ramsey? Ox at full back not in the middle? Giroud not Walcott or Welbeck? Gibbs is tailor made for this formation AND! Xhaka not Le Coq?
Mad mad the man is driving me Mad :-)


{Ed025's Note - the good news is that arsenal win 3-0 G62 and arsene will have proved you wrong mate..

1.) 17 Apr 2017 21:01:32
Gunner I have no problem with the personnel, its here or there who he chose and it is only Middlesbrough. For me it the reactive wenger I hate instead of the proactive wenger that should have done this when everyone else was atcthe beginning. Too little too late as usual.

2.) 17 Apr 2017 20:44:10
Are some of our fans ever going to be happy with what he does 😂.

3.) 17 Apr 2017 21:54:50
D probably not because his timing is wrong. After the ship has sailed and all that. And no I will never be happy with wenger, he's past it and his desperation is copying others who have flown.

4.) 17 Apr 2017 23:35:43
Hi Ed025 it's 3pts even if not 3 0 mate so i guess Arsene did prove me wrong in the end.
I have been screaming for us to play this system or similar for years but i still think we have player better suited to it and Ramsey Xhaka in the middle makes no sense to me but hey ho it worked Arsene's​ way tonight so fair play.
For me it was a dress rehearsal for the semi final with City I'm not sure it will pay the same dividends without adjusting the personnel myself but i do the 3 4 3 or 3 5 2 is our best chance of making the final.

{Ed025's Note - a win is a win G62 and even though it was not emphatic it will have brought a bit of confidence back, city will be a different kettle of fish though mate and it will require a lot more than tonights level for arsenal to progress i feel..

5.) 18 Apr 2017 15:04:27
Are Barcelona interested in Allegri?

6.) 18 Apr 2017 13:11:32
Against City we just need to have an exceptionally good day and for them to have a poor day Ed025 mate, not impossible to happen even if unlikely.

{Ed025's Note - anything can happen in a semi G62, there are a lot of upsets in them and its usually the ones who battle and want it the most that prevail, sadly its not a trait we are seeing in this present arsenal side mate but you never know i suppose..

7.) 18 Apr 2017 20:57:21
Isco would be a great signing.



24 Sep 2016 12:06:31
Looks like Olly will be starting today, pleased about that as dispite his weaknesses he's head and shoulders our best option up top and means Sanchez will be back in his best position.
Imo if it happens it's the right decision.


{Ed025's Note - i really fancy arsenal today G62..

1.) 24 Sep 2016 20:24:42
Good prediction that ay ed025.

2.) 27 Sep 2016 12:19:18
head and shoulders? sure you aren't thinking of Joe Hart there g62?



01 Sep 2016 06:31:30
Hi Eds any news on who Arsenal might be looking to sign in January :-)


{Ed001's Note - funny you should say that g62. There is an Italian striker who just joined Nice on a free that he is tracking. An English midfielder on loan at Bournemouth, but that is more likely to happen next summer. He was considering taking Sakho from Liverpool this window but was worried by his injury history. He wants to monitor him for the next 6 months to ensure he can spend enough time on the treatment table to fit in at the Gooners....}

1.) 01 Sep 2016 08:37:34
Quality Ed001,
Any chance of us signing that German winger who just joined Werder Bremen?

He look's quality :-)

{Ed001's Note - not this January I am afraid, but I do hear they would be willing to do business for the low price of £25m next summer.}

2.) 01 Sep 2016 08:55:50
Im happy. not zlatan or pogba but Mustafi, xhaka i like alot. perez let's hope he can make use of the chances created.

and considering i hate florentino perez it will take me awhile to get used to saying perez without thinking of that mug.

quite surprised madrid did not make move for de gea.

3.) 03 Sep 2016 11:15:19
It's ok, I may be wrong but I believe he goes by Lucas.



17 Aug 2016 19:31:01
Just a theory and most probably a stupid one at that but are the Stan and Arsene getting ready for a Usmanov take over hence the lack of concern about fan unrest and Usmanov using the Everton card to let them know he won't be ripped off on the price?
It would explain everything that seems to be going on with Arsenal Stan Arsene and Usmanov right now.


{Ed025's Note - you may have a point there G62..

1.) 17 Aug 2016 20:16:20
It'd be a dream if you were right mate!

Stan is a massive problem at this club.
Happy to stay mediocre as long as it keeps his pockets lined.
And Arsene doesn't seem much better unfortunately, so it's a match made in heaven.

I refuse to believe that the club, board and all don't realise, recognise and understand the fans frustration anymore so maybe you're right, maybe it's just a 'not my problem anymore' attitude.

2.) 17 Aug 2016 21:33:02
All we can do is cross our fingers and hope the Uzbek bull frog takes us over.

3.) 17 Aug 2016 21:35:13
Im dreaming all ready gunner.

4.) 17 Aug 2016 20:24:33
eds is that a yes or you don't know.

{Ed025's Note - a strictly dont know mate..

5.) 17 Aug 2016 22:30:42
That's a Shame was getting my hoped up.

6.) 18 Aug 2016 10:24:54
you'd think someone worth $8b would have a little fun with his money. Maybe torturing fans year after year gives him a kick.

7.) 18 Aug 2016 11:39:50
I worked in Usmanovs house in Highgate. On his patio in the garden he has two cannons. And there was an arsenal magazine on his coffee table. He clearly actually loves the club. Doubt you'd find that in stans house.

If you look at the quality of teams being linked to the Ox (Liverpool Chelsea City) if it's true and these 3 champions league sides all want him surely it says he should be playing in our team on a regular basis.
Can they all be wrong and us right not to think him worthy of a starting place?
Personally I'd give him Santi job for the first 9 games of the premier league season guaranteed if fit if he signed a 1 year extension.
The lads never had an extended run in our team especially in his preferred CMF role where he has done well on the few occasions his had a chance there.
What have we got to lose?


1.) 24 Jul 2017 10:17:35
I don't see him a starter in any of the mentioned teams mate, maybe Chelsea in the RWB instead of moses but not starter at city nor liverpool. He is too injured and inconsistent to my liking
For santi's role I would rather have some one with Santi's caliber, some one very technical good on the ball and a good dribbler.
But I would keep him over theo for sure.

2.) 24 Jul 2017 11:35:50
I see what your saying about him not being a regular in the city Chelsea teams but if his options are a bit part player with Arsenal or a bit part player with a decent chance of a premier league winners medal with one of those two surely it's a no brainer to leave?
If we give him a real chance before we let him go we stand less chance of regretting it latter imo.
Personally I think he's much better in CMF than you might think Moe mate.

3.) 24 Jul 2017 12:35:29
I don't see all the fuss around him he's just the same as Walcott not good enough.

4.) 24 Jul 2017 18:49:43
62 mate, I see your point and you might be right, if he is a glory hunter fear enough to him on choosing a team which is more likely to win the premier league than us but that will show you what kind of ambition he has for himself as a player being a part player.
Now Imo I had enough on trying players here and there and we to stand a chance in competing I say get the right player for the right position possible.
However maybe that's just me as I don't see him that much technically gifted and fill the santi's shoes. Again that's just my opinion mate.

5.) 24 Jul 2017 20:09:47
I think ox will end as jack of all midfield trades master of none with us and will end up just slotting in here and there when he can. He graves that central midfield position but Wenger I don't think will give him that position on any regular consistency. Wenger has the love for Xhaka and Rasmey atm in the central positions and I don't really see that changing anytime soon unless some big CM signing is made. RWB would be his best chance at a starting spot but will he be consistent enough to oust Bellerin I have my doubts. My felling is especially if this system is going to be the way forward that any offer fro him that approaches
20-25Mill mark we take it.

6.) 24 Jul 2017 20:26:45
But Moe if his options are bit part with us or them his only choice is but part with a premier league medal or bit part without one? Not much of temptation to stay is it :-)
Now if we offered him a real guaranteed run in CMF then he would have a decision to make.

7.) 24 Jul 2017 20:44:12
I think your right regards Arsene's veiw Ryan so it's best for everyone Ox moves on imo, I like the lad and if he can't do well for us I hope he has a great career elsewhere.



14 Jul 2017 19:37:05
Lucas leaving Liverpool for Italy for 5 million, i'd take him for that fee.
Good squad addition that could cover a few positions available for what in today's market is next to nothing.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 20:00:58
We should've moved for Gonalons from Lyon. Went to Roma for €5m . Was an awesome bit of business if we brought him in with Laca, would've befitted both players greatly.

2.) 15 Jul 2017 00:11:48
lucas really. god no.

3.) 15 Jul 2017 08:05:53
Joel Ward and now Lucas, 62 have you gone completely bonkers, you want us to be the best we can be by buying utter dross.

I'm sending an ambulance mate. 😉😂😂.



13 Jul 2017 08:32:08
There has been a lot of talk about players who simply can't afford to leave us because no one will pay them the wages their current contracts demand.
Let's use Debuchy as an example, if say he's on 2.5 million a season with us (50k a week ) but another club is only prepared to pay him 1.5 million a year (30k a week) shouldn't we be looking to pay him the difference for the remaining period of his current contract.
It would cost us 1 million a season to let him go and get on with his career rather than 2.5 to just trian and never play which can't make him feel great or be great to have around the training ground.
Surely if it cost us up to 10 million a season for 2 or 3 seasons to make it possible for players who don't have a future at Arsenal to find new clubs it would make sense to take a financial hit in order to give a fresh start to everyone involved us and the players and enable us to do things differently in the future regarding player contracts so we didn't find ourselves in this situation in the future.


1.) 13 Jul 2017 14:02:38
I read he was on 80,000.



26 Jun 2017 22:16:52
People are getting twitchy already but the window hasn't even opened yet although some deals are already done not many at all.
Niether of last season's top 2 Chelsea or Spurs have signed anyone yet while Everton and City have two new big signings while we Utd and Liverpool have 1 new player apiece.
Long long way to go and no one has done anything to make the rest stand up and " think they are really going for it " not us or anyone else.
Mind you city and a few others haven't been slow in making squad room available by letting quite a few go which could be seen as a sign of intent, maybe :-)


1.) 26 Jun 2017 22:51:31
Gunner I don't think anything will be twitching on me for at least two years. I think we are going to do nothing new in this transfer window than we have before, flatter to deceive again and sign the best value left overs.

2.) 27 Jun 2017 06:50:03
G62 - The window may be due to open shortly, but deals must be in place, ideally for pre-season. We have signed the new LB and need to sell Gibbs. We need to sort out the goalkeeping situation with reports of bids for Szczesny, Ospina and Martinez. We need to sell/ loan/ realease: Jenkinson, Debuchy and Campbell. We need to sort out the contracts of; Sanchez, Ozil, Ox and Wilshere. We need to consider the futures of Perez and Chambers We need to sign at least a couple more first team players. It's an awful lot to do.

3.) 27 Jun 2017 08:14:28
Steve I think the club will try to show willing at least over the next couple of years, whether it will be enough to dramatically improve our competitiveness is a different argument.
Some fans have high hopes and they are the ones the club needs to keep happy and on side.
RG I think as someone pointed out yesterday Monreal will be playing on the left of a back 3 so Gibbs will be needed or a replacement for him, playing in a back 3 will extend Monreal and Kos careers by a couple of seasons as neither are spring chickens anymore.
Some will leave I'm pretty sure of that but who exactly only time will tell, Ox and Sanchez look likely at one end of the scale while Jenks and Debuchy at the other.

4.) 27 Jun 2017 11:39:49
Hi Gunner62 - I think you will find that Arsenal are trying to sell Gibbs with a reported asking price of £15m. This may be problematic as Gibbs is reportedly on wages of £60,000 pw and wants £80,000 apparently! I believe, assuming we continue with 3 at the back, these will be selected from Koscielny, Mertesacker, Gabriel, Holding and possibly Chambers. Our wing backs could be Bellerin and Ox on the right, with Monreal and Kolasinac on the left. Both Monreal and Kolasinac can fill in the left CB role in a back three. However, I can't envisage us keeping three players for the left wing back/ cover at CN role and hence Gibbs looks likely to go.



22 Jun 2017 09:53:43
My personal view is we should be looking for good solid reinforcements to bring long term competitiveness back rather than appeasement signings of big name players to please the fans but who joins us for the wrong reasons like purely financial or because they couldn't get the move they really wanted elsewhere.
I use Benzema just as an example, if Real decided to off load him this summer I'm sure Arsene and quite a few fans would be interested in us getting him but he has publicly laughed at the prospect of joining us in the past so would we really want him or be able to rely on him not thinking he was doing us a favour just by joining us.
I know it's not popular to suggest we could learn from Tottenham but their model is in my opinion the way for us to get back in the chase, let's sign players who can't believe thier luck to be joining The Arsenal rather than the other way round.


1.) 22 Jun 2017 19:45:37
We've done that for years, bendtner, Carlos vela, Walcott, denilson, cygan etc all players for the future! It's time to buy world class players and actually compete for major titles and champions league!

Steve a lot of that to be fair is the money in the premier league, Gerrard Lamport and others would have moved abroad if the premier league wasn't so rich mate.

On the odd occasion when Jack is hot he can be outstandingly good but unfortunately even when fit this occasions are few and far between and becoming less bit more frequent with age.
Ross is a gamble we don't need to take right now.

I'm not sure it would be a good fit at all, he's a talented boy no doubt about that but I think he needs to go somewhere where the expectations are extremely high from every player and if you don't work out your quickly shipped out, Chelsea Utd City maybe even Spurs but not us because we need more players who self motivate and set high standards of themselves like Sanchez not more players who are hit and miss.
He's an excellent prospect and we are a great club but together I don't think we would do each other any favours.

Utd will back Mourinho àll they possibly can as with Fergie Moyes LVG it's up to the manager to produce the goods, same at city Chelsea Liverpool who financially back their manager and expect results for their investment.
Moyes chose not to spend and was sacked his choice LVG spent a fortune and didn't produce a title challenge so was replaced and the same will happen to Jose Klopp Conte and Pep and none of them can complain if they don't deliver.

If we really want him we will pay what it takes if we don't then we look elsewhere. They are the sellers so they name the price, we have the funds to match what they ask so surely it's a simple matter of how much we do or don't want him. Chelsea utd Liverpool city Everton have all paid above the market value for players this summer to get who they wanted, lukaku 75 millions? Way over the odds but no one will care next May if he scores goals and Utd have a good season. It's our chioce stick to our value of a player or get real and pay what it takes. Principles v Success almost you might say.

If it's true PSG don't want Sanchez and Neymar Alexis might be running out of options, No Bayern move No PSG move and we don't want to sell to city, so who else might give us 50 million for him?
Next summer he can virtually pick any club he wants, far from hold onto him I think we might be stuck with him :-)
I don't think there is any chance he will sign a new deal and it could soon become a buyer's market.

From what I've read they want both, apprraently :-)
As for what Arsene says without being disrespectful at all it's not unfair to say he doesn't always say what he truly thinks and quite often paints a more positive picture than how things are in reality.
