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

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.

Intersting Q&A on Twitter with Fabregas where he talks about the game now being more athletic than technical. Meaming the No.10 is now obsolete.
It's definitely a huge issue Arsenal have had and why Ozil and Mkhitaryan aren't as affective as they once were.
It's also something Emery failed to address but you can see Arteta is trying to implement this which is a positive. Hopefully he will get some backing in the next transfer window to bring in the correct personnel.
Stay safe.

Seems like the boy loves Arsenal and Wenger. Looks like he really wanted to return to us but also that he wasn’t happy with the ambition of the club before he left.

Great player and wish he’d won the league with us. Should have won it the year Gallas imploded after Clichy gave away a stupid penalty and Eduardo bust his leg. That was a bloody frustrating end to a season. The beginning of the end.



05 Apr 2020 17:47:09
Eds- what do you think of PL teams putting their staff on furlough leave?

I guarantee Liverpool who have done it will find the cash in the summer for new signings! Disgusting misuse of a loophole that's being paid for be the British people.

Glenn Helder

{Ed002's Note - It is wrong.}

1.) 06 Apr 2020 19:05:51
Liverpool have accepted they got things wrong, Apologised for their poor decision and reversed it.

Much better for it not to have happend in the first place of course but credit for accepting fault manning up and doing the right thing in the end.

I hope others might have a much needed rethink too.

{Ed047's Note - it’s a shocking decision by any of them and Glenn is spot on.

To me, it appears they were shamed into reversing a very poor decision.

2.) 06 Apr 2020 19:46:17
Don't get me wrong Ed047 I totally agree it should never happened in the first place and yes they have been shamed into doing the right thing in the end, but it's important to accept they have backed down and hope it might prompt others to do the same.

Initially I think most neutral were against the season being called null and void mainly because Liverpools brilliant season didn't deserve to be erased from the history books and needed to be recognised with the title but I now think because of the clubs actions last week few neutral fans would shed any tears now if that happens.

{Ed047's Note - it’s just incredible to think that any Premier League club, especially the bigger ones would think it even remotely ok.

So disappointed in them as I’d like to think the players and manager were.

Yes they’ve put right their huge error but that kind of thing sticks.

3.) 06 Apr 2020 21:51:03
Northampton Town manager Keith Curle has ever since this all started been calling the clubs elderly fans who live alone to check they are ok and have a chat about football to them and I'm sure there are others in football who are going above and beyond to help out too, but in general football and the premier league in particular have shown themselves to be totally consumed by inflated sense of self entitlement abd worth.
Whether the players finally give in to public pressure and decide to help out or are forced into doing so by the government because of them dragging thier heels for so long no one will belive it was through choice and genuine caring.

Top 5 now needed for Champions League!

I hate to think Pep was party to this situation. I've always admired him as a person and as a manager.



05 Dec 2019 22:06:41
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.

Big Sam .



23 Nov 2019 17:00:11
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

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.

Apparently we also made a £50m offer for Harry Maguire as well. We're a laughing stock.

I think he lacks confidence and plays with his head down too much.
Arteta has proved that he can improve the games of players in Pepe's postion so hopefully we will see some improvement.

I thought Chambers was excellent again. I'd be quite interested to see a Chambers/ Holding partnership given a go when he's fit again.

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.
