looks like walcott is gone surely people must come in.

1.) 16 Jan 2018 15:17:20
Malclom would be his replacment I think.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 15:18:21
I believe we are actually trying to move walcott and giroud. Rumour also welbeck so we will see.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 18:24:11
Giroud plus cash for Aubameyang the rumour.

4.) 16 Jan 2018 21:30:40
Happy if Welbeck goes
Auba 4 Giroud
Malcom and UTd player to replace Theo and Sanchez
Actually play Lacazette for 90 mins


Then sort CDM and CD out _ even if short term plans ( Nzonzi and Evans ) knowing we have youth coming through.



15 Jan 2018 10:42:45
i read Malcolm is not leaving his club now they wint sell him in jan is this true.

1.) 15 Jan 2018 13:38:25
wont sell.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 13:05:36
The club president has said there has been no talks, it's all wind and that arsenal will have a tough task taking Malcom from them.



10 Jan 2018 19:37:17
i read if wenger leaves in the summer we want ancelotti.

1.) 10 Jan 2018 20:35:37
Not another old codger.

2.) 11 Jan 2018 01:22:02
I don't know whether Carlo is the right choice. He is still a good manager, and used to winning, but I think his last two jobs (RM and Bayern) have aged him. He has lost that spark and we need someone with more life in them I think. My pick would be Jardim, but Tuchel, or Sampaoli after the WC, would be great too. I can't think of any current or former prem league managers who suit the job.

3.) 11 Jan 2018 12:01:28
Sean Dyche?

4.) 11 Jan 2018 12:25:13
Leonardo Jardim could be the perfect successor.

5.) 11 Jan 2018 14:24:52
How about Giovanni Van Bronkhorst. Ticks the ex-player box. and currently very successful, although dutch managers not exactly had a good recent run in the premiership!

6.) 11 Jan 2018 14:27:58
There was a rumour that the reason why Dortmund let Tuchel go was he had a massive falling out with Dortmunds then head scout, who he banned from the ground. Dortmund thought so highly of the scout they let Tuchel go instead. Not sure if true, but if yes, seeing as that scout is now our head scout, you can rule Tuchel out as a future Arsenal manager!

7.) 11 Jan 2018 14:37:14
Don't start Steven U. The page is still shaking after the last civil war you started on here 😂.

8.) 11 Jan 2018 15:12:57
haha i said it very quietly.

9.) 11 Jan 2018 16:50:04
Ancelotti would be a good short term solution. He has the experience to steady a very rocky ship over the next year or so before a younger, more long term solution is appointed.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal won't be looking for a coach for a year.}

10.) 11 Jan 2018 17:13:24
Exactly ed002. Surely these rumours of arsene leaving a year early are nonsense.

{Ed002's Note - He seems to be working on being sent to the stands for the whole of next season. One wonders if he will decide time has come. With the senior management changes at the club it may be a suitable time.}

11.) 11 Jan 2018 20:00:21
Ed 002, when you say that they won't be looking for a coach for another year, do you mean that they haven't got an idea on a successor whatsoever?

It seems strange that Wenger has a year left and they might not have even started looking for successors yet, but that is the Arsenal way I suppose!

{Ed002's Note - That isn't what I said - you need to read the comment and the response.}

12.) 11 Jan 2018 20:19:21
I read it wrong the first time too. Unless I'm mistaken (never unlikely) , Ed wasn't saying that they're going to wait a year before searching for a new coach, he was stating that the coach they're looking for will be expected to stay for more than just a year (of course) .

13.) 11 Jan 2018 23:16:26
Mike Dean should be our next manager as he is very impactful.

14.) 12 Jan 2018 11:50:47
I thought Mikel Arteta was being lined up to replace him?

15.) 13 Jan 2018 14:23:13
Yes i think arteta would be a good replacement for mike dean.



30 Jul 2017 17:59:31
I would be happy if arsenal signed nzonzi.

1.) 30 Jul 2017 20:00:22
Yh he looked quality would be an upgrade to our defensive midfield.

2.) 30 Jul 2017 20:38:37
We all ready have a mid table midfield.

3.) 31 Jul 2017 06:54:18
Hahahaha, brilliant Steve.

4.) 31 Jul 2017 13:11:48
Your opinion Steve i think he would be an upgrade.

5.) 31 Jul 2017 15:03:44
I'm with you on that one steve don't rate him.

6.) 01 Aug 2017 14:28:27
He is a very good player for Seville, plays in a position which obviously suits him, and was quite instrumental in their strong run last year. However, he didn't quite make it previously in the premiership, and is pushing on a bit age wise, so i don't think he would ever be an option anyway. However, i do like his physique and would prefer we sign a DM of similar build.

7.) 03 Aug 2017 01:45:05
I must admit, being a friendly he did commit plenty, was available for passes and scored albeit a badly defended goal, one perhaps WE might not have conceded had we someone who was competent in the DMF position.
A very underrated player who wouldn't cost a huge amount, has bags of experience in his position and in the country, he's played for stoke and Blackburn nearly 200 times.
Let's be honest.
United just laid out the guts of £40m for a guy who mourinho rates and who basically tackles and passes, which is pretty much what N'Zonzi does, but for half the price.
Can anyone recommend someone as experienced and as cost effective as him.
And I really dislike him to be honest he really is an anti footballer. The reason Wenger won't buy him. his ball skills are utter dump, my 5 year old might be better. But compare him to the likes of William Carvhalho, who would cost the same, maybe more, but let's be honest if Carvalho was world class wouldn't be even at Arsenal. he be at Madrid or Manchester dare I say it.
N'Zonzi for the right money. would be a good buy.

{Ed001's Note - you are being unfairly harsh on N'Zonzi, he just looks awkward, like Peter Crouch, rather than actually being poor. His control is a little loose, but he has long legs that just reach out and whip it away from a defender when they commit themselves to a challenge. Being gangly just makes him look like he is about to lose the ball, or trip over his own feet, but that moment never comes.}



12 Jun 2017 10:57:57
Hope it is true what I read this morning that Sanchez has signed a new deal will be announced in 2 weeks. And we are in advanced talks with 2 high profile players
and ozil expected to sign to.

1.) 12 Jun 2017 11:32:32
LOL - see Banter :)

2.) 12 Jun 2017 14:22:11
Na can't see sanchez signing for us. What i don't get is that Sanchez will have to compete with Aguero and Jesus up top. In the wing positions, sanchez would be competing with Sterling, Bernando silva and Sane. If he were to stay at Arsenal he would be the main man for us but it doesn't seem like he wants this. Not sure what this fascination with Champions League is as i cannot see Man City winning it. If its for the mere fact of the pull of quality players, eds have already said that this shouldn't be too much of a hinderence and i think they're right. I think its just that Sanchez was promised some big signings and that just hasn't happened. I would be very surprised if we brought any big names again this window but would like to be pleasently suprised.

3.) 12 Jun 2017 15:26:46
He would go straight in as first name on the team sheet if he went there. His tenacity and aggression is perfect for Peps style of play. He is also much more likely to win the league with City and get much further in the champions league with them. I'd love him to stay but pretty much resigned to losing him. Anyone in the prem would be a big blow. Losing the OX would be a massive blow for us aswell, especially if we don't replace them both with big names. not to fussed about ozil. would rather have someone with a better work rate.

4.) 13 Jun 2017 00:58:35
Alexis would be first name on the team sheet at any club except perhaps the big two Spanish giants. He's either the best player in the league or close to it so I think he'd be fine with moving to City. The only reason I don't think it would work is that he and Pep haven't always suited each other, and Arsenal probably won't sell to City.

My guess is he's either off to Bayern, or he's seeing out his contract to move on a free.

5.) 13 Jun 2017 01:39:02
Arsenal will block any move to another prem team.

6.) 13 Jun 2017 10:50:33
CC: Nasri
CC: Clichy
CC: Sagna
CC: Adebayor
CC: Cole.

7.) 13 Jun 2017 14:07:20
Perhaps the club isn't showing him enough to convince him to stay as he wouldn't want to do much of the dirty work alone on the pitch. He wants to see players with a winning mentality as he recently highlighted when talking about Iwobi.

14 Jan 2018 15:29:08
well there goes top 4 out the window only thing we can hope for is to win europa league we are a joke of a club atm.

{Ed025's Note - its very sad to see stephen..

1.) 14 Jan 2018 16:06:55
no one can no longer back wenger. and stan can do one too. change must happen.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 16:15:11
Derby there are people who think he's the mesiah and will find an excuse for him. There has already been enough this season for him to be sacked two or three times. he's taking us into obscurity.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 16:30:30
Wenger has to go simple as. He not able to motivate his players anymore and they in turn have lost confidence in him. Arsenal are on the brink of collapse into permanent mid-table Mediocrity if things carry on like this. Big changes are needed. We need a young dynamic manager that has some fire in his belly and more importantly has an actual game plan and can adjust tactically to the game situation as it happens. He needs to be tougher on the players and not afraid to ruffle a few feathers. Wenger’s main weakness has been his stubborn loyalty to too many underperforming players for far too long. We need board that has some ambition and desire for Arsenal to be a top class team and not just a money making machine.

4.) 14 Jan 2018 18:19:03
it is ed but we knew this was going to come you said it last season.

{Ed025's Note - its very sad to be honest stephen, he should have been gone by now and be remembered as a pioneer and an arsenal legend, i fear his reputation is being tainted now and that should never happen to someone who has given so much to the game mate..



10 Jan 2018 19:36:03
i see le coq is moving on. maybe wilshire we get his new contract now.



06 Jan 2018 20:11:20
Hi all read online were online close to Evan's again do you think this is a good signing.

1.) 06 Jan 2018 20:54:07
Hes 30 years old, we are not getting his best years. At some point soon he will start going downhill. We don't need players with no future and no future value. Kos is 2 years older and he's struggling big style. I think desperation and short term thinking is wrong.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 20:56:56
Yes. Quality addition.

3.) 06 Jan 2018 21:12:00
My point is, if all the top six clubs had to sell up their squads tomorrow, i think in worth and value all the teams could get for their players, we would get far less pounds in. Our players are either too old to sell, too far out of contract, or not worth the super amounts some players are going for. We are ending up with a squad that is short sighted and worthless in comparison. Every team in the top six bar us could sell one or two of their players for 100 mil plus, we couldn't. Loyalty to players and bad buying has left us in a bad place in my book. Why do we need another depreciating asset like evans. If its not because of desperation. Most of our players we would have to sell on for a loss, not a profit, that is very poor.

4.) 06 Jan 2018 21:48:31
Not good enough.

5.) 06 Jan 2018 22:22:44
The only reason we sell at a loss is bad management. Its simple either sign a extension on contract or F*****f. If wenger and the cronies on the board followed this mantra we could have the funds to buy quality and progress.
Arsenal football club is the number one priority. Its the only reason we turn up to games. Yes we like world class stars there but a player giving 100% heart to the club (wilshere) is a lot more satisfying than watching a prima donna holding this club to ransom.

6.) 06 Jan 2018 23:35:32
hes no world beater but he's a improvement on what we have.

7.) 07 Jan 2018 00:13:34
SU is he really an upgrade, on mert maybe, the others i'm not sure. Plus he's 30 years old, we used to sell them at 30 as over the hill. i'm not excited by the prospect at all.

8.) 07 Jan 2018 02:21:24
Arsenal need a CB having sold Gabriel last summer.
Current CB's:
Koscileny - 33 in Sept and carrying a persistent achilles injury
Mertesacker - retiring at the end of the season
Chambers - Poor, never will be a top CB
Holding - Decent young CB, needs experience
Mustafi - Best of the bunch
Monreal - Not a CB

I believe Evans will give us 3 or 4 seasons and at £20-25m is reasonable value in the current market. In the summer we need to sign another CB, a top class one.

9.) 07 Jan 2018 09:06:38
What a great description of our defence. made me laugh! How can we even say we take the club seriously with that! Please.

10.) 07 Jan 2018 09:47:27
Agree with RG61. he's not my first choice. but the rate we're going were going to struggle to finih in the top 6 let alone champion league places. I can't see us attracting better in Jan and we need people now. It plug a gap that we have left since the summer. Typical Arsenal and their poor Summer transfer windows.

11.) 07 Jan 2018 12:38:26
Yes I agree also. I'm not going to get into the money side of things but for the right price could prove a nice piece of business. He wouldn't be long term solution and would like that to be addressed asap.

12.) 07 Jan 2018 13:16:46
I remember people championing williams last year. Same type of standard, a few of us on here tried to point out the obvious. he's not getting in the everton side now. Average overated player. Evans for 5 mil, yes, back up, 25 mil most definitely no.

13.) 07 Jan 2018 13:42:49
Steve you need to forget about the money mate. You also need to take into consideration our current crop and our situation.

14.) 07 Jan 2018 13:56:54
25 mil back up defenders, who aren't going to be playing regular players are fine for teams like citeh, chelski or man u because they all ready have better players and won't ne relying on your jonny evas very often.

15.) 07 Jan 2018 14:21:16
If all our scoutng network is coming up with jonny evans, we are in deep trouble. Bye bye CL football for the future.



01 Jan 2018 09:27:48
hope you had a great xmas and new year eds do you think. players will come in this window or will it be players leaving.

{Ed025's Note - i cant see arsenal doing much business in this window stephen..

1.) 01 Jan 2018 14:00:33
ok thanks ed.



11 Sep 2017 20:31:14
anybody know any good streaming sites.

{Ed025's Note - i have used dracula streams in the past stephen and found it good mate..

1.) 11 Sep 2017 20:55:08
thanks ed i try usa goals don't work no more.

2.) 11 Sep 2017 22:04:02

Fangs a lot Ed 😁.

3.) 11 Sep 2017 22:46:57

4.) 12 Sep 2017 10:20:16

Reddit soccer streams is the one!

7.) 12 Sep 2017 15:34:33
sorry you said streaming I read steaming.

8.) 12 Sep 2017 20:16:22
Ha ha derby red tube for steaming and Ronaldo 7 for streaming.

9.) 13 Sep 2017 00:21:19
Be aware that a few of these are full of viruses, I think sky bt and virgin are putting some sort of viruses of their own out there. Last year I had my computer wiped out, took me ages to sort.

10.) 13 Sep 2017 20:40:20
Anyone can pick up a decent android box for 40 quid and have limitless streams for next to no money - with no worry about viruses. I'd recommend anyone considering it to join the Facebook group 'merlinites' to get instructions of how to do it etc. I'd explain on here but it's difficult unless having an clear conversation in real time.
