It has just dawned on me, that all the negativity that is happening, and has been for a while. Some say deservedly. It may bring Wenger out of his ways and do some early business in the transfer market going that extra few quid and hopefully uniting the fans.

I do think the unrest has shocked the board. For me Sanchez will go, he wants the money, he is not playing with his heart as he did in the beginning. Sad but true I feel.

Ozil, well I don't know if he is an arsenal player. I think we have missed Caz, the little man passes, runs his heart out for the clubm

So trade in those two super stars, and a few bits of dead wood, and start buying 5 good quality players. I think all we need is:

We need players that want to play and not argue about how much they are getting.
At 52 I could still play, i might not be as quick as I was, but I would be clapped off for my effort. (well hopefully).

Just heard on the grape vine
That Danny dangerous welbeck told united that he wanted to leave for footballing reason, his own words,
He rang Sir alex, and said boss what can I do to improve my career.
well sir Alex said Dan, you need regular champions league football, You need to go to someone that will school you in the right ways of the great game.
Dan says where?
Sir alex says you need the professor of football, the man that has change our game today,
So that's why he came to arsenal, Well I can tell you, the dutch dork, went mad where are we going to get a player of your ability Danny.
So the tale goes that he got hold of falcash agent, and said we will pay 50k more than man city and he will have more rest time cause we are out of the carling cup, and we aren't even in the creme de la creme!l,
So that's the tale the every united fan doesn't want you to hear

Do you sell you jokes to the christmas cracker people
Because I think you have a talent for that market.

Have you heard arsenal are trying to sign a 15yr old welsh lad, Bobby Richards


{Ed025's Note - no mate..

1.) Rubbish.
Ed can you tip um off then .coz the little sod is costing me a fortune at home

2.) 29 Jul 2014 19:47:26

I'm a non-profit making kind of person.

Bringing a smile to people's faces is all the profit I need, and despite what he say's, Ed025 loves me really, lol.



26 Mar 2014 06:30:56
can you cast any information on our finacal situation
coz we seem to have an awful lot of people saying things


{Ed001's Note - I am not sure what is being said? All I know is that there is money there, a substantial amount of money to spend each window, but it is not being spent.}

1.) You don't need an ED to tell you what is all over the net, papers, common knowledge.

Manager+board to blame for buying the trash that they buy.

If i'm not mistaken our net spend was 33 million, as we had sales, two players as Free agents, and Ozil. well done indeed, while the other 100 million accrues interest, and the fans pay through their wallets.

2.) There's not that much money to spend and hasn't been for years. I'm baffled every time I see this.

Each and every one of us can go onto Arsenal Plc's site and read their books, see their finances, creditors and debts. You don't just look at the cash balance you look at how much they owe as well.

That cash balance figure is misleading as it's tied up with bonds and short-term investments that they need to generate income. Again all the figures are in the books.

Never rely on sport journalists to accurately interpret books. I'm a qualified accountant and read them every time they're released and can;t fathom how people think they've had money for the past few years.

Seriously everyone just go on the site and read the accounts. Do this everytime they're published. Don't just sit there and passively accept what people are telling you just to add their wider narrative.

I hate to loose, But what a great game.
Two poor errors. Mustafi was shocking, looks short of confidence.
I don't think we where outplayed by utd.
City are a cut above everybody, but we can hold our own with the likes of utd
I felt the ref had a reasonable game, missed one clear cut penalty. maybe some pulling in the box,
I think Wenger got our tactics ok, your can't blame him for two errors the defenders made.
And at two down putting awobi on was (for me the right decision)
Cech I thick might have done better for the 3rd.
But that game gives me hope, where as the Liverpool loss was gut wrenching,
De gea was the difference between an Arsenal win and a loss, that's all.


1.) 03 Dec 2017 09:54:37
I don't blame Arsene for yesterday at all, he certainly didn't tell Kos to play another crazy sloppy cross field pass that lead to united first and he certainly didn't instruct Xhaka to play Mustafi a sloppy pass and then for Mustafi to be equally sloppy in dealing with it.
But united were better than just De Gea being brilliant and in truth if we'd scored a second they would probably have got a forth.
United were brilliantly organised disciplined determined and extremely effective.
We were full of passion commitment effort skill.
Both teams gave their all and played their parts in a footballing fiesta but ultimately United's players did their jobs better with fewer mistakes than out players did.
Both managers set out a plan that was very very capable of achieving 3pts but Utds played carried out Jose's plan more effectively than our players did Arsenes.
Nothing wrong with either sides tactics both very different but both equally capable in the in it came down to the players implementation of them.

I'm in the outback of the Mexican jungle, so haven't seen the game.
But have we found out who hacked ravers account.
The press say we deserved it, but stats seem close, except the hitting off the onion sack, I also see mopo the mumbler, not happy with the excelent mike dean,
I have to go as we only have one plug, and my wife grandfather needs his life support machine plugging back in.
I'm off to knock the froth off a few Sols,
Respect to the banter boys.

That's RG your thinking about raver. He's running the production company out there and is also Amir khans agent amongst other things.



29 Oct 2017 06:30:05
Can I just say how unlucky the Spain's under 17 were, to be 2-0 up, and caught by 5 lucky counter breaks.
At least another 11 knighthoods on the way
, and several hours of playback on tv.

Get a hold of yourself Sano, you're all British. You know, like Andy Murray is - when he wins.

6.) 30 Oct 2017 07:46:03
Andy Murray was British last year that's for sure. Sadly this year though he has been relegated to been Scottish again.

Arsenal fans that sold their tickets should get a 10 year ban. I've sent my son and his mates, and he says it is nasty.
I know the person that's 3 seats away so I, lol be speaking to him.


1.) 14 Sep 2017 23:53:41
All in family end mainly as well welshy.

2.) 15 Sep 2017 00:19:00
I agree. Kohln should be kicked out of the competition. The policing and stewards all need investigating to.

3.) 15 Sep 2017 09:00:10
If you look at it objectively the number of Colonge fans will have shocked everyone.
The best example I can think of is if Leeds were to return to European football after a 25 year gap, huge club and fan base that has been without such nights for a generation.
The fans turned it into a party and few could would have expected the share numbers to turn up as they did.
The stewards wouldn't have been trained for or capable of coping with such a situation.
The police? Well although they must have been aware of the potenial situation they can't be everywhere at once and in the world we live in how could they simply drop all they are doing else where to prevent things happening on a daily basis and respond to this situation.
Fans? Should they have sold their tickets? No, would they do the same again given the outcome of what they helped to create by selling them? I doubt it.
If someone offered you £1000 for your ticket would your immediate thought be " I can't do this for safety reasons? " Or would you think wow £1000, that's a holiday or a new sofa or whatever, on the spur of the moment I doubt anyone was thinking "I don't care about safety
I will take the money ' or 100% straight and with the benefit of that fantastic thing called hindsight everything is easy.
Last night was an extremely unusual situation ( who takes 25,000 fans to an away game in a different country on a Thursday evening ) .
Lessons need to be learned by everyone but it's all to easy to look back with hindsight and point fingers.
It was simply a crazy situation that no one expected and how could they have done?
The club the fans uafa all need to look at what happened and learn from it but then again when will this unique set of circumstances come up next, 25 years time?

{Ed001's Note - with the amount of surveillance we all live under now, there is no way the police would not have known this was going to happen days in advance, with the flight/ferry/train info they have to hand. That is even before they left Germany they would have had some idea that it was happening with the intelligence network they have now.

Then there is the fact that London is the centre of the CCTV world, there are more cameras in London than anywhere else in the world. So the police knew exactly what was going on. There really is no excuse for it descend into chaos.}

4.) 15 Sep 2017 09:41:39
All true Ed but there is only so far they can spread themselves.
Should the German authorities have let so many travel without tickets?
But then again are the German authorities entitled to refuse people to travel to London without a ticket for a football match that they may or may not be planning to attend?
With hindsight if the share volume of numbers planning to travel was known in advance then a fan park with giant screens might have been the answer to entice them away from the ground without tickets?
I know ideally mistakes wouldn't happen but sometimes in my opinion the only thing we can all do is learn from them, including the fans who I'm sure weren't thinking of the potenial consequences of selling their tickets at the time but who have seen the results now and should be more socially aware in the future having now had the chance to reflect.
I just think blame is such an easy game to play where everyone passes the parcel where instead a collective acceptance and learning is much more productive for the future.

{Ed001's Note - but the police have been here a millions time before in big games and still haven't learnt, even after killing 96 innocents they have learnt nothing. There used to always be a cordon around the grounds so you had to produce your tickets to get through, sometimes 3 or 4 times, to continue. That would have fixed this problem easily. They still do it for things like Old Firm games in Scotland. So, once they had an idea of the huge numbers travelling, all the police had to do was put up a cordon and direct the ticketless fans away. Simple really. It is something that has been used regularly in England for football matches in the past.}

5.) 15 Sep 2017 12:55:22
Do you know what ed I was stood outside last night and the same thing crossed my mind about the police and hillsbrough. As for fans not supposedly been allowed in the home end that's nonsense koln fans were coloured up and there was loads in the north bank and that's opposite the away fans end and stewards were letting them in. Police in and around the stadium but mainly towards the pub and food areas were clearly turning a blind eye. The same thing happened after FA cup final. Some Chelsea fans pissed up after game attacked two teenage Arsenal fans waiting for the tube and two police officers just walked passed and up an escalator clearly saw what was happening and thought better of it!

{Ed001's Note - the problem is a lot of the police still see football fans as the enemy and trouble, rather than just a group of people that might have some idiots amongst them.}

6.) 15 Sep 2017 13:22:56
That's it in a nutshell ed.

{Ed001's Note - it is quite sad really as they then cause a resentment and bitterness which breeds later troubles between police and football fans.}

7.) 15 Sep 2017 13:46:47
It is indeed ed and like you say about been the odd idiot amongst thousands of good fans you get the same with the police the odd over zealous moron that light the touchpaper.

{Ed001's Note - very true.}

A great game
I don't like to loose, when I do I like to think we tried everything.
I believe only for De gea we would have won.
For me a lot of positive, but we need to world class defenders.
