Extremely worrying times at the club:
Leno - Bayern interested
Bellerin - 2 Italian clubs interested
Mustafi - Club want to sell
Torreira - Unhappy and Italian interest
Xhaka - wants out? Club want to sell?
Ceballos - Loan ends at end of season
Ozil - club want to sell or loan
Aubameyang - Contract expires 2021

We should have taken the opportunity to change manager at the start of the International break.


1.) 16 Nov 2019 00:02:49
Lampard came in and within weeks Hudson Od signed and said it took one chat. Emery is the opposite and is repealing players, however one hungry manager that the players can get behind could change so much. Today it seems the best managers are the ones the Players can get on with on a personal level.

2.) 16 Nov 2019 10:13:44
I think it's really important that players trust and respect what their manger does and how he does it.
Once the players stop believing they're manager knows what he's doing its virtually impossible to win them back over. I would imagine it's Just like any other place of work where players talk amount themselves and feed each others dissatisfaction and if allowed to go on to long before you know everyone is looking at their options and looking to get away, those with no chance of getting their wages matched elsewhere will be the most likely to sta but they will be staying for all the wrong reasons unfortunately.

3.) 16 Nov 2019 14:21:43
Ed, you said Emery wasn’t our first choice. Do you have any idea who our targets/ options may be if they’re forced to part ways with The tactical genius that is Emery.

{Ed002's Note - Obviously things have moved on since he was appointed and right now he is the coach. A couple of coaches will lose their jobs before him and maybe they will be in the thoughts. Right now it makes little point in discussing detail.}



19 Oct 2019 13:46:31
Just read that Ceballos has met up with Perez, of Real, as he wishes to join Arsenal permanently. The reported fee is £35m, which would be a bargain for a talented player such as he is. Fingers crossed.


1.) 21 Oct 2019 01:56:19
You just made that up. Lol. He’s a Spanish international, who’s preference is to stay at Madrid whom is young and as you said talented. Real are if not the biggest club in the world. 35 million. Lol. Wake up.

2.) 21 Oct 2019 05:55:00
It was a report I read, not made up. Real having spent heavily in the summer will need to recoup some funds in order to try to sign Pogba. Clearly Zidane doesn’t rate Ceballos or he would have kept him at the club.

3.) 21 Oct 2019 11:34:08
well let's hope it is true.



15 Oct 2019 10:03:20
Reports that AC Milan are after Elneny, who hasn't settled in Turkey, for a reported £13m. If Sanllehi pulls that one off he is truly a genius.
Other reports indicate that both Milan clubs are interested in Ozil, who seems odds on to move during the next window, getting some or all of his inflated wages off our books would be excellent.


1.) 17 Oct 2019 13:23:18
According to Ormsteins new employer Ozil is happy to see out his contract with Arsenal.

2.) 19 Oct 2019 13:47:19
Yup, it seems Ozil is happy to remain at the club until his contract runs out.

3.) 21 Oct 2019 12:41:03
I’d do the same.



14 Oct 2019 10:36:16
Reports that we are interested in a young Spanish CB, Pau Torres. Perhaps our CB's for next season will be: Luiz, Holding, Saliba and Torres.
Sokratis will be in the final year of his contract, so perhaps we will try to sell him. Mustafi will be allowed to go.
Madley lacks experience and could benefit from a loan deal.
Mavrapanos has suffered from injury and doesn't appear favoured by Emery. Perhaps a loan deal would be beneficial.
Chambers, at best a utility player providing cover.


1.) 15 Oct 2019 21:36:37
If Santi is recommending Torres he must be good!

2.) 15 Oct 2019 22:25:05
why always single Chambers out in every post?

3.) 15 Oct 2019 23:01:18
Remember how we used to all pull the girl we liked the best pigtails in primary school Eden mate :-) .
Obviously RG is well aware Calum is completely out of his league and over compensates to hide his true feelings, over being the operative word as in OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER again, and again and again AND AGAIN, basically yet another bog standard RG post :-)

4.) 16 Oct 2019 10:25:21
He is obsessed! 😂 I think we really know who has the crush!



02 Sep 2019 07:25:38
Fans continue to criticise Emery, but don't forget he has only had one season to form the squad as he wishes. He has brought in a total of 8 permanent signings, which includes young Martinelli and Tierney who has yet to start. Next season Saliva arrives.
I am sure Emery wishes to sell and replace: Ozil, Mkhitaryan and Mustafi. Is he convinced by either option at RB and Kolasinac at LB?
My main concern is the defensive side, let's see if the 3 returning defenders improve our defence.


1.) 03 Sep 2019 01:13:10
Our display against Spurs was very encouraging, we were all over them for large parts of the game. The goals we conceded were poor but ultimately hard to blame on the manager.
First goal: individual error from Sokratis + individual error from Leno
Second goal: Utterly stupid from Xhaka.

If the football we put together in the second half is what we can begin to expect from Emery's team then I'm very impressed. Ironically it reminded me a lot of Poch's early days with Saints, in terms of the pressing, energy and attacking threat, but without the defensive stability (yet) .

2.) 08 Sep 2019 12:13:15
Wenger won the title in his first full season.

3.) 09 Sep 2019 08:41:21
Fans do continue to criticise Emery, in my view because there remain baffling elements to his leadership; accepting that not all transfers in and out will be done at his sole bidding, there has been some crazy activity:
* Ramsey's allowed departure
* Pepe - who of course could turn out to be very good - ahead of a proven Premier League player in Zaha, who publicly wanted to come, who could have been bought for the same if not less.
* the persisnet caution over playing Lacazette and Aubameyang together when it is plain to see they are a beautiful and harmonious strike force who bring out the best in each other.
* Torreira - by far and away our most effective defensive midfielder last season, but used so sparingly and often being favoured by.
Emery's most baffling muse of all: Xhaka.
I could bang on and on about Xhaka, but simply ask: why? And Captain too? Unfathomable.

To give balance: Iwobi. Up to £35m in total! Genuis, sheer genius.

A change of manager is clearly needed, and I was wondering if our results in the two matches this week will lead to Emery being replaced during the forthcoming International break? It would be an ideal time, as we approach the busy Xmas period and a new manager would be in place for any transfer dealings in January.


{Ed047's Note - how many days ago was it you said everyone should get behind Emery?

1.) 06 Nov 2019 09:17:25
Hi Ed, until the week we played Sheff U, Vitória and Wolves
, I was with him. The fallout from the Xhaka incident and his treatment of Ozil led me to believe that he has lost the dressing room and Mourinho turning up at The Emirates was interesting to say the least.
I will still support Emery at matches, but he no longer has my confidence for the reasons stated and I am a huge fan of serial trophy winner Mourinho, although I am fully aware that he tends to be a short term solution. Others I like are Rodgers, Allegri (if he speaks fluent English) and the Ajax manager (again, if he speaks English) .

2.) 06 Nov 2019 09:44:47
But I thought Emery was a serial winner with his 10 trophies RG?
Shouldn't you stop moaning and get behind Emery and Xhaka like you kept telling everyone else to before you changed your mind and went all Mourinho on us?
Or is it OK for the rest of us now to want Emery replaced because you do too?
Or are you saying " hey lads I was wrong before about telling others how they should feel "?
If it's the last option then good for you mate.

3.) 06 Nov 2019 10:12:30
Well said gunner too many people on here hate others having an opinion especially if it’s against there views.

4.) 06 Nov 2019 10:46:43
No one has the right to tell others what they should think or feel Welsh mate, we don't have to agree with or even respect someone else's views but we should definitely respect their right to have them no matter how strange they seem to us
Debate and disagreement is absolutely fine but dictatorship is only needed by those who's are unable to find agreement for their own views.

5.) 06 Nov 2019 10:57:08
I was happy with emery but now I'm not the players can't understand him I think a change is needed but I never cared what others said as it was my view on him.



03 Nov 2019 18:11:23
Watching the toot v Everton match, Gomez has bust his ankle. Martin Atkinson has to be the worst ever ref. He should be banned.


1.) 03 Nov 2019 19:49:26
The player is obviously in a very poorly condition and the players involved in this entirely unintended incident are completely devastated.
Absolutely nothing to do with the referee, obviously everyone's thoughts are with the injured player and wishing him a 100% complete recovery and as speedy as possible. Horrible thing to happen to everyone involved.

2.) 03 Nov 2019 20:47:28
I agree what’s it got to do with the Ref?

3.) 03 Nov 2019 22:28:59
If you watched the match, shortly before the incident, Gomes hits Son’s face with his arm and the referee does nothing. It was a foul and a booking. Hence Son is still feeling hard done by and shorty after chases down Gomes and is over committed to the tackle. I do not believe he intended to injure Gomes, but poor referring failed to calm the situation down.

As is usual with this poor referee he got many decisions wrong and handles the game badly. The Everton fans were singing ‘ the referees a W.’.
On a separate note Walcott and Iwobi were awful. How we got over £50m for the pair is astonishing. Iwobi’s part in the Toot goal proved just how poor he is.

4.) 03 Nov 2019 23:02:31
He sent off Son when it was not suppose to be.

5.) 04 Nov 2019 08:18:59
Don’t think that fair on Iwobi, he’s been a good signing for them, it’s only one mistake.

6.) 04 Nov 2019 11:34:31
I don’t think son’s tackle cause the leg to break it was serge aurier.



02 Nov 2019 14:59:11
Home to Wolves is a special match for me. It was the first match I ever saw at Highbury way back in 1968. We won 3-1.
As tv was in black and white back then, I recall telling my dad, blimey it's in colour!


1.) 02 Nov 2019 18:03:49
Was it as special today?



01 Nov 2019 14:17:51
Sorry to hear that Xhaka won't be in the squad to face Wolves. He should have been selected as captain, played and the fans should have got behind him.
The cowards that made threats to him, his wife and daughter should be ashamed,
Most of us criticise players in forums such as this, but to boo our own players is unacceptable.
I believe all professional footballers should not be on social media, which encourages idiots to make vile comments.


1.) 01 Nov 2019 16:04:36
His form alone means he shouldn’t play, end of .

2.) 01 Nov 2019 16:52:31
Form is one thing, the decision of the manager.
Personal abuse towards Xhaka and his family is simply not acceptable, nor is booing him.
He doesn’t intend to play poorly, and booing him will certainly not help.

3.) 01 Nov 2019 17:43:35
Xhaka shouldn’t be in the squad end of, stats show we do so much better without him, he’s been poor since he came here and now is the opportunity to get rid.

He brings nothing to the team it’s really that simple.

4.) 01 Nov 2019 18:01:23
So you would field a player who makes the team worse out of sentiment for him?
Very strange rationale, Xhaka isn't good enough for us end of story.
I don't like the way he has been treated, but i support the club not a player.

5.) 01 Nov 2019 18:45:27
If he hadn’t been on the pitch he wouldn’t have been booed - Emery’s fault .

There is no way on this earth he should be in the squad tomorrow, it’s the right decision.

6.) 01 Nov 2019 18:46:24
C4 you explosive chap, your on your own with this, have to say it’s an odd stance you are taking.

7.) 01 Nov 2019 18:56:22
This a post from someone who up until recently kept telling us daily we had improved under Emery despite no one else agreeing, now on a daily basis he promotes us replacing Emery with the man most gooners would never want as our manager.
Did he really ever think Emery was that good or just enjoy being controversial, does he really want Mourinho or does he just wants what nobody else wants in oder to get noticed and suspect this post too is another attempt to get attention for himself.
Obviously no sane rational human being thinks the Internet trols have the right to threaten or wish ill health on Xhaka let alone his wife and daughter are anything but vile very sick people but equally no one thinks that's a good reason to pick someone to play professional football either.
On a personal level I wish Xhaka and his family every happiness even though on a purely footballing level I hope he decides to pursue his football career somehow other than Arsenal.

8.) 02 Nov 2019 07:48:19
To clarify, the gist of my post was that an Arsenal player should be treated with respect by the fans and supported. Of course on sites such as this, which with all due respect he is unlikely to read (sorry Ed’s! ) , we can make sensible critical comments.
Yes, I have supported Emery, he improved last season on the previous season and until the Sheffield U match we were in a positive position, a couple of wins and we would have been 3rd, only a point behind City.
If we were to replace Emery, Mourinho would have been my choice after Wenger and still is. The difference is that he is a serial winner. Just look at what he has won as a manager. I doubt he would be a long term solution, but will bring a couple of exciting seasons. The alternative is Allegri, more of a risk ias he hasn’t managed in the PL &! I don’t believe his English is great. Rodgers was another manager I like, but he would have to be prised away from Leicester. I like what the Ajax manager has done, but another risky appointment.
The reason I have changed my support of Emery is that he appears to be losing the dressing room. The Xhaha and Ozil issues are of concern. As is his use, or rather lack of use of Torreira. Perhaps we will see Torreira alongside Guendouzi today. Defensively we haven’t improved, which odd, as during his time we have brought in a keeper a couple of CB’s and a left back. In his defence 3 of the 4 best back 4 were out recovering from serious injury until recently.

9.) 02 Nov 2019 09:16:16
Generally speaking 911, I agree thay booing is counter productive and can be construed as lacking respect, but went are fans doing it? It's because the manager is consistently doing things a large proportion of fans are unhappy with and they have no other way of havingtheir voices heard. Lots of fans were unhappy last season but remained silent. The situation was predictable and avoidable, even just rotating chaka. Similarly giving ozil the odd game would have appeased some. Instead, Emery is trying to show fans he knows best, and if the fans disagree, they can choose to put up with it, stay away, or boo.

10.) 02 Nov 2019 09:52:35
Apparently Emery fears a player revolt if he takes away the captaincy from Xhaka?
Maybe I am just old and cynical but this whole thing is looking very stage managed to me.
I never believed the players had a free vote on the captaincy and came up with Xhaka, to me it looked like a way of Emery using the players to take the heat off himself and his strange decisions.
Maybe I'm wrong but none of this players backing Xhaka's inclusion in the team or his captaincy rings true, every fan every neutral every pundit repeatedly question why Xhaka plays but all our players Just happen to agree with Emery and disagree with the other 99% of people, hard to believe that's true.



29 Oct 2019 07:13:53
Tomorrow's team selection will be interesting, as will the reaction to the result in a tough fixture.
I have a sense that the squad are unhappy with the treatment of certain players and Emery is losing their trust.
I have never understood Emery's policy regarding the team captain. The 5 captain policy is baffling, as is the idea of allowing the players to select the captain. For me, and of course others may disagree, David Luiz would be a decent shout. He is experienced, well liked by the players and has won many trophies. Another player I would consider is Lacazette.


1.) 29 Oct 2019 08:00:01
Not being funny but does it matter anymore who Emery picks or what he does?
For most fans it's over, he's finished and until he's gone it's difficult to get very excited about anything to do with the club.
5 captains, players mock vote, bizarre team selections, tactics, no attempts to organise or improve our defence or make our centre midfielder more disciplined in order to protect our defence, what is the point in worrying or wasting your time thinking about what Emery might or might not do anymore.
Once he's gone it's game on again but until that happens just accept more strange decisions behaviour and poor performances and results will continue to be the norm.

2.) 29 Oct 2019 09:01:36
Needs to be soon though 62, someone like PEA won’t hang about.

{Ed047's Note - I listened to a guy earlier who said do the board want to lose £6 million now in a pay off or £45 million if we don’t make Champions League.

Still have to make the right choice on a replacement though.

3.) 29 Oct 2019 09:22:54
No I know he won't Banbury but what can we do but wait mate?
I personally don't see what harm a caretaker could do if we can't get the right man now.
It's difficult to imagine anyone could do a worse job of organising and motivating than Emery, I say difficult to imagine rather than impossible to imagine because I said no one could do a worse job than Arsene with our defence and then along came Emery and proved me wrong :-.
The worst and caretaker would do is finished midtable and even that happend is 10th worse than 5th or 6th under Emery?
On the other hand a caretaker could bring calm and common sense in place of the absolute nonsense we have now.
Nothing to lose in my opinion.

4.) 29 Oct 2019 10:05:46
Barring a change of fortunes I can't see Emery lasting beyond the endow the season. He has alienated Ozil and has made it clear that he wants Mustafi to go. The situation with Xhaka is a cause for concern as he appears to be popular with his teammates.
I can't see us winning tomorrow at Liverpool and perhaps it is time to replace Emery.
The 3 available choices that come to mind are:
1. Mourinho - My choice
2. Allegri - Assuming he is ready to return to management
3. Freddie - Perhaps on a temporary asis until the end of the season.

5.) 29 Oct 2019 10:54:59
Absolutely no way Jose, if ever there was a club that should not employ Jose it's Arsenal.
Yes to Allgeri
Yes to Fredie and friends as a caretaker, hopefully a few ex players would step forward and offer Fredie any help they could on the training field and bring a posivtive atmosphere back just until the right candidate can be found.
The longer Emery continues the more negative the whole thing gets from fans players and the more chance the media get to do they're worst and create as much of a toxic feel about the club they can muster.
When has the British press not milked every situation for its own end and invented stories to inflame unrest given half a chance?

6.) 29 Oct 2019 12:47:26
Would anyone do any worse than Emery, don’t think so.
Allegri would be a decent choice imo.
We can’t beat mid table teams comfortably these days Which very worrying to achieve top 4 and CL.
Are we going to count on the EL again?
The quicker emery’s out the better, however board and players will still say they’re behind him just not to make it any worst but he lost it since he started the whole ozil scenario.

7.) 29 Oct 2019 13:12:34
Get arteta in to lol I'd like alegri.

8.) 29 Oct 2019 14:14:52
Simone please.

9.) 29 Oct 2019 20:17:53
Moe:"Would anyone do any worse than Emery, don’t think so. "
Yes, many choices. Including Mourinho. Emery is not a good manager but he is hardly the worst out there either. We could sabotage not just this season but multiple seasons in a row if we pick Mou.

I would love serial trophy winner Mourinho at the club. With the squad we now have he would be a great choice to restore CL football and trophies to the club.
Although, as I have stated previously Emery improved us in his first season and should be given a chance until the end of the season to see how we progress with the three long term injured defenders and Lacazette back, as well as bedding in the new players.

G62 - surely even you are aware that we have changed the medical set up at the club since the Kalstrom episode.
It appears that Tierney will return after the International break, which would have influenced Emery’s decision to sell Monreal. We have two LB’s, which is normal, perhaps he has player in mind who can play in that position if necessary.
There will be a saving in wages which can go towards the cost of a signing in January. Perhaps we are looking for another left back as I recall Emery has been looking to sign a LB since he arrived as he didn’t seem convinced by either options. We may indeed replace Kolasinac, who lacks defensively.

G62 - what a peculiar comment. The medical team will have checked Tierney and I am sure he will return fit and will be an upgrade on Monreal.

Hi Ed, I have stated that Mourinho will be a short term solution, but long term management is becoming rare. The days of Wenger and SAF appear over.
Mourinho still won trophies at United and a EL and League cup double will do for me.
The question I ask, but nobody answers, as it’s easy to criticise my choice of Mourinho, but not to make intelligent alternatives, is who would the critics want as manager, it must be realistic. Possibly most of us would want Brendan Rodgers, but could we prise him away from Leicester? Allegri may not be ready to return to management and after Emery the last thing wanted is a manager struggling with English.
Could Howe, Dyche or Artera cope with the current situation and turn the season round? Never mind the fact that all three are currently employed.


{Ed047's Note - my personal opinion is we should get rid of Emery at the earliest opportunity because after 18 months you’d have to be blind in failing to see he’s simply not good enough.

With the Arsenal hierarchy just coming out and giving him their backing that is not going to happen.

So we have no choice but to let this woeful season come to it’s obvious sorry end.

At seasons end we then have the opportunity to attract, my 1st choice, Nagelsmann, who surely would love the challenge.

His teams play great football and he is young with a great future and in my opinion suits us perfectly. Alternatively we have the choice to offer Rogers another chance to manage a big club at seasons end which I’m certain he’d jump at.

Nothing about Mourinho even as short term fits to me, he is literally nothing our club represents and as much as you say others won’t give their reasons and who they want you are simply sighting Mourinho’s achievements when he was a current manager and not outdated, he would just be a pointless waste of time.

Cannon - in response, in his second spell at Chelsea Mourinho won the Premier League and the League Cup. At Man U he won the Europa League and the League Cup. Hardly failure, something most Arsenal fans would be pleased with these days.
Does anyone seriously think Howe or Dyche could match his achievements?
I don’t think he is over the hill, nor are his methods outdated. He is an abrasive football manager and a winner. Perhaps Arsenal fans dislike him, because he almost almost always beat us. I am trying hard to think if Wenger ever managed a win against him. Let me know if this is incorrect. He also used to ruin Wenger. An expert in failure, etc. He also riled Wenger so much Wenger tried to attack him physically. The truth is he lorded over Wenger. Do I want him as manager, hell yes. Will he get the job? Doubtful.

Hence, why we need an immediate change of manager. Now is a good time, with an international break and the January window fast approaching.
I believe we need an experienced manager and the two that spring to mind and are available are Allegri and Mourinho. If Allegri speaks English.
If we don’t change our manager we stand to lose our better players, as I don’t believe Emery can recover from the damage inflicted recently.
