Any chance we can end Saliba's loan early and get him in January?

Glenn Helder

{Ed002's Note - No, that is not possible.}


1.) 02 Dec 2019 10:34:03
And is Holding's absence from the recent squad due to lack of match fitness?

{Ed047's Note - he’s not listed as injured and is always in the training photos so they’re not liking what they see I guess.


2.) 02 Dec 2019 12:49:45
Can you imagine how bad he must look to not get ahead of Luiz or mustafi, let alone not make the bench!

{Ed047's Note - no Eden I can’t mate because he isn’t that bad

4.) 02 Dec 2019 13:05:05
Ed any truth in the rumours linking aubamayang to Madrid? Reports saying 70mil + Rodriguez.

{Ed002's Note - There is zero chance of an offer like that. Arsenal will sell if Aubameyangadingdong fails to sign a new contract. There will be takers but right now they need to sort out the medium term and persuade him to sign.}


5.) 02 Dec 2019 18:13:56
Holding looks good in a back 3 but struggles Just like the rest in flat back 4.
Overall it doesn't seem to make any difference flat back 4 or 3 at the back, Xhaka in or out nothing seems to change no matter who or what formation we play.
Something is somewhere is amiss and we need to firstly find out what it is then do whatever it takes to sort it out.


6.) 03 Dec 2019 00:46:49
From what I've seen this season g62 it's three things. First, we get caught upfield too often and our defenders/ midfielders are terrible at tracking back or following their man. Of our midfielders, I have only seen Torreira do this consistently. Second, when we do manage to mark an attacker, our defenders curiously stand off him and allow the shot. See Pukki's goal for a prime example. This is a common habit of Mustafi and Luiz and to a lesser extent Chambers. Third, when we are defending and pressing, we don't cover for each other in the press so as soon as the opposing team breaks it, they have a huge chasm to stride into unimpeded before they reach the back 4. This is the main reason we concede so many shots. Watch Guendouzi and Xhaka for this and you will see how quickly our midfield gets bypassed.


7.) 03 Dec 2019 08:21:57
Excellent post wire mate and for me it's these things we should be concentrating on rather than play musical chairs with playing staff constantly. Work work work on what's wrong then in the summer evaluate who is and isn't capable of change and improvement.

Why would any top manager touch us with a barge pole? I think we're going to have to accept someone untried like Arteta.

Glenn Helder

{Ed047's Note - they clearly don’t want to already hence we ended up with the hapless Emery Glenn


1.) 05 Dec 2019 22:19:45
Followed arsenal for just over 30 years and I’ve never seen us so painful to watch, really hope Freddie can turn this around but I just don’t know how, as said above I can’t see any manager of substance wanting to try their luck at the emirates

I miss my arsenal : (.

{Ed047's Note - we all do and welcome to the site mate. 👍🏼


2.) 05 Dec 2019 22:20:52
This side is beyond repair, it's all about staying up now.
As individuals they are plenty good enough to challenge for 4th but as a team the absolute worst Arsenal side I can remember seeing.
The mentality is awful there just isn't anything good to say about them.
People will point out individuals and individual mistakes but that's like pointing at the broken widows or creaky door when the whole house is a pile of rubble.


3.) 05 Dec 2019 22:29:52
Not Arteta 🙈🙈.


4.) 05 Dec 2019 22:43:23
We desperately need a George type manager, forget pretty football for a bit and find some effort commitment fight pride character bottle self respect again before we can even think about playing super sexy football again.


5.) 05 Dec 2019 22:46:59
We need empty stadiums and quick, break the bloody bank and get a good manager with pedigree

At least we will get parachute payments.

It's a sad state of affairs when you're gutted that we get a last minute equaliser- another week of that plum at the helm.

Glenn Helder

{Ed047's Note - we are in that state where it’s only going to get worse


1.) 23 Nov 2019 17:08:02
Ed- would Allegri be an option if someone in the club grew some balls and sacked Emery?

{Ed047's Note - I’m sure ed02 said that Allegri was one of those that didn’t like the set up above him at the club so wouldn’t come.

I don’t know where realistically the board can go and probably not a high profile manager just someone that will work under the odd set up we have.


2.) 23 Nov 2019 17:14:43
Worse than this ed? I think we will be fighting relegation this year if keep on the same rythme.
Well done Emery and the team you are doing your best not to surprise me.
Oh I’m frecking done betting on us winning my whole day was going to plan until us can’t bloody beat Southampton at bloody home. I’m so frecking furious.

{Ed047's Note - I think anything is possible with Emery at the helm Moe, he’s a shocker.


3.) 23 Nov 2019 17:17:44
Thanks Ed. Seems if Emery goes it will become Ljungberg's job to lose.

{Ed047's Note - that would certainly seem likely Glenn


4.) 23 Nov 2019 17:34:08
I don't think he will see out the week but then I didn't think he would see out the international break so obviously I'm not exactly an authority on the subject.

One thing is certain and that it's a case of when not if we part company so them would seem little sense in dragging it out and watching the players and fans morale sink lower and lower.

When it's over its over and just dragging it out hurts everyone including Emery more than it needs to.

{Ed047's Note - I think it’s reached the point of negligence if they don’t move him on.


5.) 23 Nov 2019 18:02:35
Agree Ed047, those in charge are putting themselves in the firing line by protecting Emery now, another 2 weeks and they will all be in completely untenable positions.
It make absolute sense for Malaga's post above to be spot on.

{Ed047's Note - it’s getting ridiculous 62, he’s never in a month of Sunday’s going to turn it around.

Maybe we could get Erik Ten Hag from Ajax.


6.) 23 Nov 2019 18:52:53
Yes mate I'd be very happy to give him a go in fact I think he's a very very good shout, everyone is a gamble and personally I always thought it might take 2 3 or possibly 4 attempts at successfully replacing Arsene.
1 failed attempt is nothing to be ashamed of, refusing to accept your mistake is.

{Ed047's Note - I just think he’s the kind of manager that would love to come to the Premier League and would maybe except the mess we have upstairs to do it.


7.) 23 Nov 2019 19:07:40
I think all pressure is now 100% on those in power at the club Ed047 mate, no disrespect to Emery but he's almost become incidental because it's so obvious he shouldn't still be in the position he's in.
My gripe is now 100% with those who are refusing to do what so obviously has to be done, put Freddie in charge until we can get someone who fits us, Hag would look as good as anyone we are likely to be able to attract.

{Ed047's Note - totally agree 62, they need to step up to the plate and sort the mess out or Josh Kroenke needs to sort them out.


8.) 23 Nov 2019 19:22:50
The nasty stuff has definitely started to roll uphill at Arsenal now mate.

{Ed047's Note - and gaining speed at every turn


 

 

21 Oct 2019 21:58:34
I understand we're in a rebuilding process and it's great to see some obviously talanted young players getting some game time. I can even put up with a loss like tonight if I think we are improving but we're not and I just don't think Emery is the right person to oversee all the change in the team.

Glenn Helder

{Ed047's Note - I don’t think many will disagree with you


1.) 21 Oct 2019 22:06:19
I would say any of the changes not all - but may be I’m a little tough on him.

If he was running a business and not addressing the obvious issues after this length of time - would the shareholders be asking for change? Let’s get real - they wouldn’t and he’d be under a lot of pressure.

Where’s the defensive coach, where’s the defence training - help yourself dude.


2.) 21 Oct 2019 22:15:59
I'd love to see Nagelsmann given the chance to try to do something with our team.


 

 

15 Sep 2019 18:28:04
Emery has actually managed to make our defence worse than it has ever been!

We're a Ferrari up front and an Ice Cream van at the back.

Glenn Helder

1.) 15 Sep 2019 18:37:43
Yep, the kind of ice cream van that only has unbranded rubbish lollies . Absolutely shocking performance, tactics directly responsible for at least one goal, sloppy defending and bad decisions for the second. We were lucky to get a point.


2.) 15 Sep 2019 18:43:09
He was gifted the attack by Wenger. 🤷‍♂️.


 

 

06 Aug 2019 22:47:04
Can anyone think of a more disrespectful way a longterm player and captain has left a club than Kos? That Bordeaux unveiling video is unbelievable!

Glenn Helder

{Ed025's Note - i agree...its just wrong glenn..


1.) 07 Aug 2019 00:02:13
Haven't seen it, what's happend to make it so bad?
Obviously for both Glen and Ed025 to disappointed it's got to be pretty bad.


2.) 07 Aug 2019 02:37:42
For any player to leave the way he has in my opinion loses all credibility he had with the club. There are ways and means of doing things. I don’t care what anyone says, to downright refuse to go on tour with the club who has paid your wages for a decade ruins any form of legacy he may have had. Not for one second am I comparing him to Tony Adams or Martin Keown. that would be silly. Good riddance to people like that.


3.) 07 Aug 2019 06:15:04
Good riddance to Koscielny.
Just hoping we sign a CB during the remainder of the window. Much as we need a LB, CB is a priority. Both would be great.


4.) 07 Aug 2019 07:55:21
Gunner62 he is standing in the arsenal top and takes it off and throws it onto the floor revealing the bourdoux top.


5.) 07 Aug 2019 08:09:32
Like I said yesterday, people defend him saying “ he was a great servant etc” for your club captain to refuse to go on pre season tour, what message does that give to the young players? Pre season is extremely important and he totally put himself first and ruined his legacy at Arsenal, at least we held firm and recouped some of last seasons wages!


6.) 07 Aug 2019 08:39:09
Not a particularly edifying way to leave or sign - I would have expected better from him. On the other hand he has played for us for nine years and never caused a peep of grief. I would reserve judgment until I know what actually went on between him and the club. We all know what it's like in a disagreement, it's easy for things to spiral and heels to get dug in, and then everything gets messy and one or the other is painted as the devil.


7.) 07 Aug 2019 09:09:47
Cheers D16 mate, yeah that sounds pretty disrespectful and unnecessary. Like Urban says we don't know the full story all we do know is 9 years not a word or foot out of place and now this summer he's suddenly become anti Arsenal?
People don't usually go from one extreme to another without something happening to cause provoke it, whether that reason is justified or not remains to be known.
It was time for him to go but I'm still sad to see a previously outstandingly loyal and hardworking player go and especially in this way.
Sometimes good people do bad things and occasionally bad people do good things but in my experience its someone's behaviour and personality in general over thier lifetime that shows you the real person and the what to expect from them in the future.


8.) 07 Aug 2019 09:58:50
He wanted a free tranfer but we wouldn't allow it so he threw his toys out of the pram. I'm sure if he went on the tour to the US and acted in a more professional manner he would've still got this move.


9.) 07 Aug 2019 10:23:31
I agree with Urban and Gunner62.

Some reports said Kos had been given a verbal promise he could leave this season after 9 years loyal and tireless service (seems crazy to me that its only verbal, but possible as other footballers have said the same thing for other clubs) and other reports that he was only offered a huge pay cut and pay to play contract to stay at the club. Other reports also that he was upset with the approach of the club, but would have extended if they'd won the Europa.

If he'd had a promise to leave which was then taken back and was being told he'd be made to see out the rest of his contract or could sign a new worse contract for his twilight years as the club had recruited poorly which was obvious even to outsider but those other players were still getting paid well, and the choice was be a martyr and just stay quiet or try and force the club to do what they had promised, I can understand why he did. His throwing down the shirt is really disrespectful, but to me seems entirely out of character and would be something someone would do that feels lied to and disrespected themself.


10.) 07 Aug 2019 11:00:28
Irrespective of what has happened between the club and player, it has nothing to do with the fans, who idolised him and stuck with him during his many injury breaks. As is ususal for a footballer who obviously has a brain the size of a pea, he feels its ok to record and upload footage of him dumping the shirt on the floor whilst seemingly forgeting that it will be watched by those self same fans that idolised him, and clapped him off week after week, and not the board, who couldn't care less. Good riddance.


11.) 07 Aug 2019 11:09:50
We'll probably never know the whole truth of what went on. I do know he played the last 2 seasons on one leg, and never slacked off. I'll remember him for the good things, which I saw with my own eyes, and not for the things reported by the rags, because they always get it right.


12.) 07 Aug 2019 11:24:42
What do we know about what really want on behind closed doors between Kos and the club? Obviously nothing
But what we do know is 9 years without the slightest peep of decent and now this! Something has happened to cuase this total reversal in character that's pretty obvious.

Apparently following an analysis of our season it was agreed that we need more pace in attack, especially in away games. So that's why we're still looking at zaha.

Glenn Helder

{Ed047's Note - but the defence was fine?🙈

I think Pepe is our first choice for this position. If he decides to go elsewhere we will turn our attention to Zaha. Everton Soares is our third choice.

Good advertisement for potential managers. Thought Chambers played well at cb, Xhaka is still a liability and Leno's improvement this season has been brilliant.
