Debuchy gone so a few more quid off the wage bill.

Chelski just confirmed Giroud i hear.

Gutted.


2.) 31 Jan 2018 17:14:26
Why did we sell to Chelsea.


3.) 31 Jan 2018 17:26:29
to sweeten the David Luiz deal?


4.) 31 Jan 2018 19:08:28
Rollercoaster of emotions today lads 😁🤯.


5.) 01 Feb 2018 01:36:22
My feeling is that Dortmund had settled on Bat Shoe Eye and would have essentially informed Arsenal and Chelsea to sort it out or there'd be no deal. Worked only because Giroud was Chelsea's best option IMO.

Deal done and announced, welcome to AFC PEA.

Aubameyang spotted at Dortmund airport with travel bags, I'm guessing his destination is London, bloody hope so anyway.

Rumour coming out of Germany is the Aubameyang deal will be announced later today.

Arsene has told a French Sports publication that he regrets staying at the one club for so long. Can see the Wenger out brigade having a field day!

sparky68

1.) 17 Jul 2018 07:35:12
Wenger is history, I'm really looking forward to the new season, to see how we now play under Emery and with 5 new players so far. I can also see see an end to keeping failing players at the club. 25 days to kick off!


2.) 17 Jul 2018 08:33:39
I think it's only natural that with time to reflect he should look back and think what might have been if he'd done things differently.
Arsene was to close to the woods to see the trees in the end and now he's had chance to think clearly he's thinking what if?
Nothing wrong with that in my opinion.
Everyone looks back at less successful times and thinks and sees things differently to when their caught up in the moment.


3.) 17 Jul 2018 09:40:09
Wenger, very much yesterday's man, looks lost. He wasn't offered the managers job at PSG. With France winning the World Cup, Deschamps job looks secure for the foreseeable future. I can't see any top club offering Wenger the managers job.
Quite where he will fit in is a mystery. I appreciate his time at Arsenal, but bleating about the past is embarrassing.
Emery is so refreshing, although we must be patient whilst he upgrades the squad, giving it much needed balance, fitness, defensive awareness and tactics.
The final bit of business this summer will be to unload the 6 players mentioned, try to extend Ramsey's contract and bring in at least one more player, Nzonzi is my choice, A second if Ramsey leaves.


4.) 17 Jul 2018 10:08:16
I think he probably stayed about 10 years to long . Not sure if it was pride or stubborness that carried him through to the end.


5.) 17 Jul 2018 10:11:13
Hehehe :-)


6.) 17 Jul 2018 10:27:20
Hindsight is a wonderful thing 68 mate and Arsene is only human and once the dust is settled on a difficult time where things didn't work out as we wished for its easy to see where we might have been more wise.
Your right mate he did stay to long but I'm not sure if it was pride or stubbness but simply a case of being surrounded by people who constantly defended him and refused to see him held to account, pundits journalists fans you name it people qued up to defend him right up until the last season or two, it's got to be easy to lose your way when 50% think you can do no wrong while the other 50% think you've had it, who do you listen to? I guess we would all chose the compliments over the insults wouldn't we?


7.) 17 Jul 2018 17:36:14
Bleating? Really? So the man that GAVE 20+ years of his life to the club you claim to love can't have a thought?

What's embarrassing is some turnip pretending he's a jet-setter with a private plane, a super model wife, an economist of State as a father-in-law and to top it all off, an internet package that makes it look like he's in Blighty when he's really in Madrid.

What's embarrassing is your ability to repeat the same thing multiple times in the hope that someone on here will take you seriously.

First time in years that I am looking forward to a new season. The change of management has brought a whole new level of expectation and finally going after players and actually getting them. Top 4 will hopefully be a doddle but, I think we all expect more with these exciting new signings.

sparky68

1.) 09 Jul 2018 22:09:53
I'm not sure top 4 will be a doddle or even achieved next season but I'm genuinely excited about watching the team give their all in the pursuit of it and the possibility of prehaps more if all goes exceptionally well.
Tough to beat and no one's mugs again would be a great first season under Dick in my opinion.


2.) 09 Jul 2018 22:41:02
There’s no reason Arsenal can’t compete with United, Tottenham and Chelsea for third. To me Liverpool and City are a cut above the rest of the league but Arsenal absolutely have a shout at third.


3.) 10 Jul 2018 08:13:27
Let's hope so Q, it's certainly not beyond the realms of reasonable possibility like it was this time last year.
I'm expecting dramatic improvement in attitude and mentality in Dicks first season but accept it MIGHT take a couple of seasons to fully close the gap on the clubs you mentioned, hopefully not but if it does we have to be patient and as long as we are moving towards them rather than slipping further behind it will be a brilliant turnaround for season one.


 

 

20 Jan 2018 14:12:38
Dortmund confirm Arsenal offer, believed to be 44Mil.

sparky68

{Ed002's Note - Sorry but the offer is not on GBP. You need to ignore the money.}


1.) 20 Jan 2018 14:34:40
Forgetting actual amounts, what currency do offers get made? Is it the country that the player is currently at or does it vary?

{Ed002's Note - The offer will be in euros.}


2.) 20 Jan 2018 14:36:19
Each journo report I've seen says £44mil.

{Ed002's Note - Each one is wrong. Go you are easily led.}


 

 

16 Jan 2018 20:44:17
If we pull these signings off, aboombangbang, melcom and mkhitaryan, would that be enough in your eyes to save AW job? Personally i think its too little too late.

sparky68

{Ed002's Note - I would agree.}


1.) 16 Jan 2018 20:55:23
Whatever happens, I don't think he will get sacked.

If he wants to see out the remainder of his contract, he will.

I hope I'm wrong.

{Ed025's Note - i think it will be by mutual agreement dags..


2.) 16 Jan 2018 21:02:54
the job upstairs is awaiting him, he doesn't really have much to lose.

{Ed002's Note - What job?}


3.) 16 Jan 2018 21:03:46
I think the clock is counting down and we all know that only a certain number of events will save him. Not all these players are his choices that's obvious. He is approaching last chance saloon i think.


4.) 16 Jan 2018 21:03:33
The only way Wenger could save his job is to win the Europa league and Mickey Mouse cup, and that’s not personally that’s what I think would happen if he didn’t win anything and we are out of the top 4 I think he will walk.


5.) 16 Jan 2018 21:16:51
i'm not sure even that will save him even if by some miracle it happened. Watching us defend and watching Chec over the last couple of seasons we are in dire need of a refresh, new players, new ideas, new hope.


6.) 16 Jan 2018 21:18:52
We all know that what has gone on in the last few months would mean the sack at most top clubs. I can't believe he hasn't had conversations letting him know its not good enough. Whatever we think of mike dean as well, that is worrying what he did, not very professional.


7.) 16 Jan 2018 21:21:10
I pulled you up on this the other day steve! He’s not approaching anything he is on his back with his legs in the air whilst a dog pisses on his face. For someone who has beeen the herald of this black winter you sure are been generous to the old man.


8.) 16 Jan 2018 21:06:42
Heard he has a exec job lined up Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - Well, which job would that be?}


9.) 16 Jan 2018 21:30:04
no idea mate just a rumour that was doing the rounds.


10.) 16 Jan 2018 21:34:10
Ed025,
Agree mate. Plus, make sure you look after my boy Theo 😁.

{Ed025's Note - i will try dags, but if he does not perform he will get slaughtered like the rest of them mate..


11.) 16 Jan 2018 21:42:51
Sano you know me i ain't generous to him at all. Lol he should have gone a long while ago.


12.) 16 Jan 2018 21:45:35
Ive heard he's going as understudy to Charlie George.


13.) 16 Jan 2018 21:57:10
An exec job ed is where a person is paid his weight in chupa chips to watch young French kids play football.


14.) 16 Jan 2018 22:49:30
I have always wondered if he would end up staying in london or head back to france. still not sure.


15.) 17 Jan 2018 11:08:22
You don't give up a precious piece of property in Totteridge and Whetstone that easily DG. its like giving up the crown jewels! . I can see him becoming the manager of an international team in the future where he can still be based in London.


16.) 16 Jan 2018 22:58:35
Ed002 seeing as this topic was about arsene I was wondering what your opinion is on the job he is doing at arsenal and why his stature if that's the right word for it has declined so much in many of the fans views.

{Ed002's Note - He should have moved on a couple of years ago. I would think with the management changes that he will move on in the summer. I don't think his stature has declined at all - he has done what he sees as best for Arsenal.}


17.) 17 Jan 2018 12:40:25
In reply to sparkys original post, i don't think those signings would make 1 iota of difference as they wouldn't be Wengers signings, especially Auybamalangadingdong who he isn't interested in.


 

 

21 Dec 2017 06:02:32
Klopp " Oxlade Chamberlain was not asked to get involved in goals by Arsenal" He also wasnt asked to disappear during games but he managed that!

sparky68

1.) 21 Dec 2017 07:34:32
To be fair, if Chamberlain had not run really fast down countless dead ends then given the ball away, or crossed to a team mate rather than the opposing touch line or maybe got a shot at the thing with a net on it instead of to a mate in the crowd he would have had a wonderful goals scored and assist record.


2.) 21 Dec 2017 08:18:41
Time will tell whether Klopp is correct or not. Although I wanted Ox to stay, I can't say we have missed him and Maitland-Niles is developing well as cover for Bellerin.


3.) 21 Dec 2017 09:21:21
Stoner 🤣

Does Klopp realise Ox has only scored one goal for them and it was a meaningless goal against Maribor.


4.) 21 Dec 2017 13:28:54
The press are getting carried away because he had a very very good game for us against Bournemouth the other night, we will see if he can do it consistently now but it looks promising.


5.) 21 Dec 2017 15:52:51
He also scored against West Ham dags. The Ox has been much improved of late and actually looking like a good signing. Just have a look at his performance on the weekend, absolutely outstanding! It's a well known fact that Wenger isn't the best coach, he may be a good manager but not a coach, and he simply doesn't get the best out of his players.


6.) 21 Dec 2017 16:13:13
To be honest Dags I’m not sure what Klopp realises as he still thinks Mignolet is a great keeper and Klavan a quality centre back. 😉.


7.) 21 Dec 2017 17:18:35
You will have no problem tomorrow if we are as bad as you say then stoner?


8.) 21 Dec 2017 19:04:41
Den,

We are about as much use as a chocolate fire door when it matters so I wouldn’t fret mate. It will be a pleasant surprise if we muster a great performance.

I’m more having a laugh about some of the drivel these managers come out with.

Mourinho even had the cojones to say Bristol City were lucky. He is the champion of chatting utter 💩.

Also are you saying Migs and Klavan are quality! 😉.


9.) 21 Dec 2017 19:21:34
DaRedMan,
Thanks mate. Didn't realise 👍.


10.) 22 Dec 2017 00:37:46
They are definitely not quality but they can do a job if the manager sets up the right way and to be fair they are not going to come out and slate their own players. Wenger used to love the ox but basically accused him of being the reason you lost 4-0 at the start of the season today, I wouldn't pay much attention to what managers say if they can eek out a tiny psychological advantage they will. For me there is very little in it between Liverpool, arsenal and spurs, we are the better team going forward, Spurs are the better team at the back when they are fit and arsenal have a decent balance. I still think your two wantaways will cost you but it should be a decent race for top 4 as I'm not 100% that Chelsea are as good as everyone thinks as well.


11.) 22 Dec 2017 06:01:30
Den,

I agree, aside from Mourinho who has slated a few of his own. I don’t actually care what they say to be honest, most of it is hilarious waffle.

I definitely never listen to Wenger, he regurgitates the same drivel every time.

Let’s just hope it’s another 7 goal thriller, I was at that game! 🙄 but in our favour this time. 😁.

About time Stan coughed up some cash to keep hold of our best assets, now just need to sort the defence out, get a keeper and let Xhaka work for the ground staff and we can look forward to success.

Jack had the chance to be one of the greatest players in the prem, injuries and lack of playing time maybe robbed him of that. I don't think he exactly helped his own cause but wish him all the best.
