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.

Anyone watch match of the day last night? I thought Alan Shearer was spot on with both his compliments of yesterday's performance and critism of us not showing that level of commitment effort and desire anywhere near often enough.
He said " I find Arsenal very frustrating and I can only imagine how their own fans must feel ".


1.) 19 Nov 2017 11:12:01
I didn't see it but he is only stating the obvious.



17 Nov 2017 17:53:10
Just read the Guardians Arsenal Spurs combined 11
Only Kos Kol Sanchez's make it from us, I actually think they were quite generous towards us to be fair.


1.) 17 Nov 2017 18:54:58
Merse said something down similar lines. Thing is while i'm not putting an argument in, these things never work out quite like it seems. Plus it is all personal opinion.

2.) 17 Nov 2017 19:30:18
Fair comment Steve but I thought on this season's form Sanchez and even Kos were generous inclusions and I can't make a reasonable argument for any more than the 3 they included.
Who could you possibly add?

3.) 17 Nov 2017 19:47:39
If we win tomorrow, you can probably add six or seven, lose and you can take three away. Personally the truth is, i think out of everything its the midfield we lose out big style. Probably the worst midfield for 25 years.

4.) 18 Nov 2017 07:03:42
Steve, Gunner 2-1 tomorrow? either way? thoughts?

5.) 18 Nov 2017 09:52:12
Tough one to call Nes mate as are all Arsenal games.
So many questions before the game starts
Will Arsene start Lacasette?
Will he include Iwobi?
Will our players fancy it today ?
We are capable of holding it together and producing a result but are we likely to?
My guess is a draw because that will be enough to stop the fans from losing it completely, 0 0 or 1 1 is my prediction.

6.) 18 Nov 2017 10:42:51
On BBC sport page, fans voted and only three Arsenal players are Bellerin (really? ) Sanchez and, ofcourse, Lacazette.

7.) 18 Nov 2017 10:52:34
I think whatever way you slice it Perfect mate 3/ 11 is pretty poor on our behalf especially when you think that 3 is quite generous.



10 Nov 2017 23:51:53
5 times German footballer of the year, that's world champions Germany by the way.
Yet struggled to have any real impact at Arsenal.
Ozil or Arsenal where is the real problem?
Mesut arrived as a Superstar of world football and will leave as? Well I guess in the Charlie Nicholas bracket of what could have been.


1.) 11 Nov 2017 06:00:49
Bit unfair on Charlie there, his problem wasn't anything to do with his efforts or qualities, the ball was pumped right over his head the whole time, Ozil can't complain, he's been in a footballing team the whole time.

2.) 11 Nov 2017 10:17:47
Fair comment JP but still they are two players who arrived Superstars but simply faded away at Arsenal.
I think the last 4 years has dulled our memory a bit of just what a coup signing Mesut Ozil was and just how brilliant he was when he arrived.
We have wasted him and the opportunity he presented for us to get back in amongst the best.



05 Nov 2017 19:49:28
Winning the title was never a serious option and top 4 was always going to be very very difficult but not impossible, I don't see how today changes anything at all.
Lose to Spurs and that will make 4th a lot lot tougher still but as we stand all is pretty much as it was at lunchtime.
I definitely think we need to keep the league cup and Europa league going as long as we can because if top 4 doesn't happen we are going to need all the straws we can get our hands on come May.


1.) 05 Nov 2017 20:20:16
Todays result reinforces the fact we are not top four and we are not in any title race again. No it didn't change a thing, just reinforce the view wenger can't hack it with the younger tactical aware managers. We are hanging our hat on the Europa league and that is a long shot too, once we start playing the top sides and the champs league droppers. With the Ozil and sanchez situations as well, we are in disarray. What a right tactical clanger wenger dropped today. It wouldn't have made an awful lot of difference but in a big game to play a player not used to playing center back and leave out your top scorer to play someone who can't score (iwobi) is rediculous. There was nothing solid about this team tpday at all and it showed. Innept manager.

2.) 05 Nov 2017 20:35:11
In away league matches against the rest of the 'big six' since the start of the 2014-15 season, We have won only once (a 2-0 win at City in January 2015) , losing 10 and drawing seven.

Wenger also had the cojones to say referees get worse every year, maybe you should have a look at yourself fella.

We are going nowhere fast and a player like Lemar will give us a huge side step.

Will it get much better when Wenger goes, with Kroenke at the helm, no chance.

3.) 05 Nov 2017 20:57:57
Nothing Wenger does, in fact, nothing Arsenal do, surprises me anymore.

We were never going to get a result today, and our team selection and performance matched the result.

{Ed007's Note - Have you been hiding from me, Dags? I've been looking for you all weekend to let you know that rou're my designated Arsenal Ambassador for this years charity drive and it's up to you to keep it people's minds after a few pints on live chat, pay day etc lol

It got off to a flier but has hit a bit of a wall lately. There's no pressure or hassle to donate, everyone has their own lives to deal with but any donation will be really appreciated and is going to a fantastic cause}

4.) 05 Nov 2017 21:32:23
Hi Bond,
I'm flattered and honoured.

Anything for charity mate. Will take a look now and keep it bubbling along nicely.

{Ed007's Note - Good man, Dags. I know I could count on you mate.}

5.) 05 Nov 2017 23:29:11
dags being wenger out makes me smile. stan is the major problem tho. the tide is turning. sad its got this bad for a great club.

6.) 05 Nov 2017 23:43:26
Nothing will change until the end of next season.

We just got to grin and bear it mate.

7.) 06 Nov 2017 20:06:49
dags its eaten away at me for years generally past caring and lost my love for the club. it will come back when that is I don't know.



01 Nov 2017 17:05:33
I really like Klopps handling of the Ox as he knows he is not a player who is naturally busting in self confidence and who takes his own every mistake to heart, time will tell his Liverpool career will pan out but in Klopp he has a manager who knows what's needed to give him the very best chance possible of being the best he can be.


1.) 01 Nov 2017 18:45:23
I've stopped following ox career now.

2.) 01 Nov 2017 21:08:09
Fair comment mate, I still like the lad and wish him the best for the future.

3.) 02 Nov 2017 00:01:00
Yes me too. But I have stopped looking at his twitter account 😄.

I tend to agree Heybridge mate but what is the ulternative under Arsene?
If Arsene won't go then the only thing to do is keep hoping that somehow he will do something that makes a real difference I guess.
For me the smart money says he will simply plod on as he has for the last decade and do so for as long as he can until he is finally forced out.
But until then we just have to hope he does something different that actually makes a difference to our results over a season.

People used to bang on about 20 years of champions league football under Arsene, if we end up in the Europa again next season I wonder how long before people start saying 22 years of European football?
It seems to me we keep lowering the bar so Arsene and the team can still get over it.
Just my opinion but that's how it looks to me.

We all want it Sano mate but doesn't anyone really expect it?
We'd all be secretly very happy with 4th place come game 38 and I'm sure Liverpool fans probably would too, but Chelsea City Spurs Utd fans would all be disappointed with 4th place and consider it an underachievement.
I do long for a bit of there ambition to really catch on here too, I think 2 seasons back 4th place was a bit of disappointment for many of us too but now it's a real ambition which is further proof that we are all going backwards Wether we admit to ourselves or not.

Fair comment mate i didn't realise they were simply tourists.
As we all know the club is more about money than people pleasing now days and I'm sure they aren't that interested who's money they take.
Football and fans are very much a by product at Arsenal money in the bank is much much more the ambition than landing the big prizes.

I think Arsene's reaction to the referees decision mistakes after both the City and Spurs games sums him up perfectly, far to heavy on excuses and little acceptance of reality.
We deserved to beat Spurs yesterday and deserved to loose to city two weeks before, the Spurs game yesterday and the Chelsea away game prove the team can produce the goods if they
A fancy it
B are allowed to by the the manager picking the right team and tactics to the job at hand.
The City Liverpool Stoke games proved
A our players don't always fancy it
B are not always set up right to achieve the best results.

Fab would be an asset in many many ways iceman I agree, he is a great link to our more competitive past and has played in very very successful teams and has as you say much much more ability than any other mf player than we currently have.
He would be a very astute signing if he would come that is?
If utd and Mourinho want him he will take some getting because they will offer a higher fee higher wages and more football ambition than we can currently make an argument of.
They may have been in the title wilderness for a bit but their ambition to get back is plain to see regards players they go for and are 100% committed to doing all they can to sign them.

Arsenal have many many prawn sandwich attenders of games that's for sure but I see absolutely nothing wrong with fans from all over the world attending games NLD or not.
I think our cosmopolitan fan base is something to be extremely proud of and why would someone who has travelled thousands of miles to watch a game maybe for the first time know the words to the songs? I hope they had an absolutely brilliant day
Yes I too think many working class fans are priced out of attending games and it's 100% wrong because that's where the real passion comes from, look at Anfield and Old Trafford but I remember going to games long before the Emirates and standing in silence despite some trying to encourage our fans to be more vocal.
Hibury wasn't called the library for nothing mate.
