Rumours that we are looking at Griezmann again, great player and would fit in well, paper talk or a genuine re-interest Ed?


{Ed002's Note - Don't hold your breath.}

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.


{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
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!


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

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
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

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. 😁.



14 Sep 2017 21:29:35
Dont understand why Wenger pisses about with the team so much, sod the Chelsea game we need to win this one.




24 May 2017 06:31:03
So it appears Sanchez agent is in Germany doing his best to line his pockets. To be fair, I'd much rather he went to Bayern than city.


1.) 24 May 2017 08:09:36
In Sanchez's case, he just wants to win trophies. Yes, he will get paid handsomely at Bayern but his main motivation has always been trophies. As a LFC fan, I know how frustrating it is to lose your best players but u just got to deal with it.
Interesting to see how Arsenal do without Sanchez (he is worth half your team imo) . LFC suffered when we failed to replace Suarez adequately, and Wenger needs to use all his resources to sign some decent players rather than more Xhakas and Welbecks.

2.) 24 May 2017 09:05:20
@Indian Buzzer did you really just try to make out like Liverpool have been hard done by in losing key players in the past? You realise you're on an Arsenal page!? Liverpool have lost two good players over the last dozen years. how many have we had poached or sold on for profit?

Sanchez can go if he wants, we'll find someone else. We always do.

3.) 24 May 2017 10:45:58
Interestingly, Sanchez has claimed he is happy living in London, "I'd like to stay in the city but with a team that is winning things, that has a winning mentality".

So he's off to Munich then which is just north of Peckham.

4.) 24 May 2017 12:11:44
Only usmanov keeps sanchez here. He goes we are in deep shit. But if he goes all the best and id go to if I was him.

5.) 24 May 2017 15:16:33
gooner83, when u lost most of your quality players over the last decade or so, the club still had a solid team with at least 2-3 top notch players holding fort. This current Arsenal team is weaker than the previous teams, it lacks leaders and direction. In the past, you were in the UCL but now you are in the Europa. Wenger was still a quality manager 4-5 years ago. Now he has lost his mojo. Getting Arsenal out of this rut could take years if the right decisions are not made.
Take Sanchez out of that team, and who else would any of BPL's top clubs even want? Maybe Bellerin but he is probably off to Barcelona anyways. I'd take Koscielny to partner Matip, but none of your other players are worth wasting money on or the effort it would take to sign them.
I am not having a pop at your club, just pointing out that losing a player of Sanchez's calibre and no other world class player in your squad plus no UCL to back it up will be detrimental to building from the down up. Its a long process and a frustrating journey. Just because you found 'adequate' replacements in the past does not mean you will now as well. The competition has gotten fiercer over the last couple of years.



04 May 2017 10:38:50
With Ozil apparently demanding 300k a week and Sanchez turning down 250k a week do you think that players will have us over a barrel if we can't guarantee CL football?

Either way I think it will be a lot harder than previous years to attract players now that there is a lot more foreign investment in the Premier League [its no longer just your Chelski and Man shitty who have the cash to bring in top stars]

Would like to hear your thoughts on it.


1.) 04 May 2017 11:02:24
Well S68 the fact that Champions league looks highly unlikely and Wenger certainly has lost this aura about him where as players wanted to come and play for him, i think its reasonable to think we are going to struggle to attract the top players. On top of this Sanchez and Ozil who on paper are our best players are looking to leave, Arsenal doesn't look the right place to come to right now.

2.) 04 May 2017 13:34:59
S68, not being in the CL next season shouldn't singularly stop us signing decent players in the summer. I mean Man Utd manged to sign Pogba, Mkhitaryan (both from clubs qualified for the CL) and Ibrahimovic despite not being in the CL. However sadly I feel the issue that will stop us signing big players is the lack of apparent leadership at the club from both the owner and manager at the perceived decline of our football, and that our missing out on CL this season is not just a temporary blip but a sign of things to come. I suspect that if Allegri came in as manager in the summer with a transfer budget to boot (and possibly a CL trophy attached to his name) I can't see too many players turning us down just because were not in the CL next season, can you?

3.) 04 May 2017 14:18:54
A lot of the players we might want will be in their early 20s so have no recollection of Arsenal and Arsene being a real force in the game, they will only know what they've read or been told about and to this generation of players City and Chelsea have always been Premier league giants who attract top players to work with the top managers they employ.

Ours and Arsene reputations are based on past achievements which isn't really relevant to the players of today.

Chelsea have Conte and recent success City have Pep and recent success Utd have Mourinho Liverpool Klopp and Spurs have the up and coming Poch to offer potential signings and Arsenal and Arsene have old paper clippings and Vhs videos to show.
There is nothing new or modern at Arsenal currently to attract anyone with options.

4.) 04 May 2017 18:03:01
We should of tied them down early one. Also weird how sanchez only joined on a 4 year deal. Always baffled me.

5.) 04 May 2017 19:11:30
I'm amazed anyone believes we've offered that amount of money unless it's a typo and you meant £250. 😂😂.

6.) 05 May 2017 09:54:59
We offered van dijk 150k a week times are changing.

7.) 05 May 2017 14:02:27
He would be one of my top targets if i was manager Derby. Despite all our recent signings we still lack a core and a physicality in the team. Van Dijk would be a fantastic start to correct both. Slap a decent GK behind (maybe 2 seasons time - Butland would get my vote if he shows he is over his injury) , add a DM, which we still don't really have, and a 20+ striker.

8.) 05 May 2017 17:53:58
We could of had him for £12 million ages ago now they are talking £50 million.

Sorry but I see Mertesacker as a liability in the current team, fails to track back, short of pace and gets beaten in the air way too much for a player of his size. Put him out of his misery and play Gabriel/Kos.

Wish him luck and can't help but think he would have been one of the best wingers we had if he stuck at it and forgot the centre forward role, stick to what your good at.
