This Mesut Ozil saga has to come to an end. This post may cause a bit of stir, but i still believe this guy has a massive role to play. I know some of you have been slating him and he deserves some of it. But since his omission from the squad, has any player actually stepped up to create chances?

We're constantly leaving ourselves short at LB as Kolasinac is the only player in the team who actually puts a ball into the box, but due to his commitment going forward we suffer. No other player in the league picks a pass like Ozil, and this guy needs to be given a free role in our team. As for Emery i can’t see his reign lasting two long.

Also can i just point out that one of the only first team coach still left at the club from the wenger reign is the supposed defensive coach of Steve Bould? How can we not get this defense right with such a great defender coaching them?


1.) 15 Feb 2019 21:32:26
Steve Bould wasn’t a great defender mate! . Ozil is a great player.

2.) 16 Feb 2019 03:41:48
I'm with you there JG but I don't know how much of the Ozil situation is down to Emery and how much is due to the guys upstairs. Do they want him out to free up the wage bill? Are they trying to embarrass him deliberately after the mistake they made giving him that contract? Baffling and frustrating.

3.) 16 Feb 2019 10:36:12
It sounds like a pretty desperate defence of Emery blaming the club for Dick not playing Mesut wire mate.
Sorry but it does sound ever so similar to the naughty stadium defence of Arsenes choices and decisions that backfired too.
Personally I think it's easier to deal with what we know and see for ourselves rather than guess at possible answers that deflect from the fact that we look no better now than we did under Arsene but Mesut is reduced to watching Xhaka play in almost every game now.
Dick in my opinion took the easy option of dropping Mesut and it's not worked out well.

4.) 16 Feb 2019 12:45:19
To be fair g62 none of us 'know' anything except that Ozil isn't playing and there's a different excuse every other day. I'm willing to bet Ozil would be playing if he wasn't on 350k a week, which to me seems like the club want him gone so he can free up the wage bill.

Maybe someone ITK can elaborate further. I'm not making excuses for Emery, the whole situation irritates me as we are clearly a lot better off playing Ozil than this situation as it drags on, whatever you think of the player himself.

5.) 16 Feb 2019 13:05:31
Fair comment Wire mate but although I agree the club would most likely wish Mesut off the wage bill I really don't think it's the club choosing not to select him or Ramsey I think that's 100% Dicks choice and one most fans are struggling with simply because we struggling to be betrer without him than with.
Managers stand or fall by their decisions and Dicks big choices aren't paying dividends when I watch the team play.
I just can't see any difference between Arsene and Dick being in charge in the way we perform on the pitch which when all said and done is what really matters.

{Ed001's Note - Emery has a free hand in team selections, it was one of the things he insisted on before he took the job after his experience at PSG where he was forced to play certain players.}

6.) 16 Feb 2019 17:24:20
Thanks Ed0001 mate, that's some crazy set up where someone else picks some of your team for you or worse still players have it on their contracts they must play.
Now I would have total sympathy for any coach who was forced to include certain individuals and question why other than money they would work under such restrictions, seems like a hiding to nothing job to take in the first place.

{Ed001's Note - hiding to nothing but it makes you wealthy and you still get big jobs afterwards as everyone knows you were on a hiding to nothing. It is win win really.}

7.) 17 Feb 2019 13:02:13
I get the whole "Get Ozil off the wage bill " thing but let's face it, he is still one of the best players in the world on his day and talent like that is not to readily available. So you take a massive hit on Ozil and buy what? Another player that could not get in at Barcelona or Citeh you then have their wages to find. Wish Dick would just swallow his pride and admit he is wrong about Ozil.

8.) 16 Mar 2019 06:33:28
As someone who’s not an arsenal fan, I’d see your best midfield as a three of Xhaka Torreira Ramsey (obviously not long term) then Ozil ahead of them behind lacazzete and aubameyang. Torreira and Xhaka can drop deep if needs be so Ozil can play freely and Ramsey can bomb on. Wouldn’t have much natural width but could dominate the centre of the park so Kolasinac and Bellerin could provide it.



12 Dec 2018 20:14:05
Any truth in the links to Eric Bailly or Gary Cahill Eds?


{Ed025's Note - not as far as i know mate..

1.) 12 Dec 2018 22:35:09
Cheers for the reply bud.

2.) 14 Dec 2018 00:02:51
I can easily see us going for Cahill in january.

3.) 14 Dec 2018 09:39:12
Very good back up option, still a quality defender, and puts his body infront of anything. Would be a decent signing i think Steve.

4.) 14 Dec 2018 13:54:03
Agree boys and he's only a pup compared to Litch :-)

5.) 14 Dec 2018 18:06:45
Gunner, he would be a bung not a solution but we need a bung at the moment. Nothing to do with GG though.

6.) 14 Dec 2018 20:33:17
The last bit lost me completely Steve mate?

7.) 14 Dec 2018 22:05:13
George Graham, Bung?
I know, sorry. Bung just reminded me of George.

8.) 14 Dec 2018 22:27:01
Sorry mate, I was a bit thick there wasn't I:-) with you now :-)



20 Nov 2018 15:35:31
Any truth in the Denis Suarez rumours eds? Not sure how he would cope in the Premier League, could be a good signing.


{Ed002's Note - Denis Suarez is a player who is reluctant to leave Barcelona but is concerned at the lack of game time. Barcelona need to raise funds to help with planned changes and are open to offers - and there is interest from Valencia and Lazio - but the interest of Napoli will have drifted away. I am not aware of interest being shown by Arsenal at this time. They have other targets so could perhaps turned to him if they are unable to secure any of those.}

1.) 20 Nov 2018 22:19:41
Thanks for the reply! Amazing info as always.



03 Aug 2018 22:56:05
With Kolasinac out untill mid October, does anyone think we will be looking for cover? i'd personally like a move for Danny Rose, quality player who i think could upset a few yids another Sol Campbell saga lol.


1.) 05 Aug 2018 02:27:37
Zero chance of Rose. Maitland-Niles will play against City and Monreal should recover from a minor knee injury soon.



08 Jul 2018 13:50:10
Sky reporting that were in talks to sign Guendouzi, anyone have any info on this kid? Seems like this might be the youngster Ornstein was talking about, 19 year old, another midfielder. Feel like we have an over load, unless the club are getting ready for some departures? I feel we are desperate for a winger and anoth LB.


{Ed002's Note - He would be one for the future.}

1.) 08 Jul 2018 15:42:36
Ed when you have a moment will you please provide us with an extensive scouting report of the player highlighting his strengths and weaknesses and also a comparison to a current player.

2.) 08 Jul 2018 16:37:22

3.) 09 Jul 2018 07:40:57
Wow come on really extensive scouting report 👀👀.

{Ed001's Note - he is just a kid, not sure how we are expected to provide 'extensive' scouting reports for a kid none us will have seen playing.}

4.) 09 Jul 2018 08:57:05
Think the joke went over someone’s head.

5.) 09 Jul 2018 09:16:18
It did mine JW, but now you now you point it out i get it :-) , as someone said the other day irony doesn't always translate well in text unless you make totally obvious.

6.) 09 Jul 2018 11:35:50
Tongue-in-cheek, request Ed. ;)

{Ed001's Note - apologies mate, I had just woken up when I replied X-XC, never thought.}

7.) 09 Jul 2018 16:04:33
It went over my head too Ed001 mate and still would be if it wasn't for JW pointing it out, mind you that's not unusual for me :-)

{Ed001's Note - very true you must be about 2 ft tall as most stuff goes over your head.}

8.) 09 Jul 2018 18:35:10
Very true Ed but at 8 feet round there ain't much gets by me :-)

{Ed001's Note - I can't even begin to imagine what that looks like, but I am guessing very like Ed025 in his younger days.}

So Allegri has said he may take a year off, maybe he could replace Emery after 19/ 20 season 🤣 obviously depending on how Emery does next season! But he did sign a 2 year deal with an option of a third. Dreaming i know 😉.


1.) 27 May 2019 17:11:48
Fingers crossed we can only dream.

{Ed002's Note - Allegri will not be joining Arsenal.}

2.) 27 May 2019 17:54:01
Why are you so sure Ed? Did we burn bridges when we appointed Emery?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot be expected to justify why people won't be joining Arsenal - particularly those where there is no interest.}

3.) 27 May 2019 18:09:26
Never say never ed lol we can dream.

4.) 27 May 2019 20:26:52
, thanks Ed.

5.) 27 May 2019 23:17:09
Ed002 also said he doesn’t understand the problem Arsenal and Chelsea have of getting to Baku and why the fuss.

6.) 28 May 2019 03:19:48
Way to ruin the party Ed 🤣 was fun while it lasted 😩😂.

7.) 28 May 2019 07:30:47
We have a fine manager in Emery, who despite being left a squad in decline, finished a place higher than the previous season, with more points, closed the gap on top place and reduced the gap between us and the Toot from 14 points to a solitary point, whilst reaching the EL final, providing the possibility of a trophy and qualification for the CL in his first season. There is even talk of Emery being on Barcelona's list to take over as manager.
Alegri has a fine record, but whether that would transmit from winning the league consistently with Juventus in Italy, to being capable of rebuilding Arsenal, with an extremely limited budget would be interesting.
Many will disagree with me, but if Emery were to be replaced, in the short term it would be Mourinho for me. He is a serial trophy winner, and would ruffle feathers above, which is needed for Kroenke to open the purse strings.
A EL win would provide Emery with a higher budget and I can envisage us cathcing the Toot and Chelsea, who were only one and two points above us. Cathcing Man City and LIverpool will require either heavy spending or the patience to alllow Emery to build his squad over the next 2 or three seasons.



08 May 2019 20:39:36
We have to go and buy Ziyech from Ajax in the summer, what a player!


{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation.}

1.) 08 May 2019 20:52:11
You said there is an issue that has made other clubs look elsewhere, iv tried the search bar but had no luck. What is the issue with the player Ed?

{Ed002's Note - That is unimportant, but Arsenal would need to think very carefully about him before making an offer.}

2.) 08 May 2019 21:06:21
Thanks Ed. He is some talent though. Fillowing on from your post earlier Ed, will the club look to move Ozil on? I know it will be hard to find a suitor for the wages but do you think Arsenal will pay half if the right bid comes in for him? Personally i'd like to see him stay and build the team around him. If they do sell out of our targets i'd be more than happy with James Maddison 😁.

{Ed002's Note - If they can they will sell him.}

3.) 08 May 2019 21:24:42
If we are not going to play to Mesuts strengths what's the point in keeping him? I'm not saying we should or shouldn't build a team around him but surely we should do one thing or the other, let him go on a free to free up wages or make him the main man where he can show why he's our top earner.

4.) 09 May 2019 10:25:58
What’s the issue with him ed, does he have an attitude?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}



29 Apr 2019 21:51:56
I think our away form has to be down to Emery not getting his tatics right. Did you know he once went a full season without an away win with Seville? Really? His away form for his career is shocking baring PSG who let's face it barely break a sweat week in week out in the league, they managed to throw away a heft lead when they went to the Nou Camp. The problem has to be Emery’s tatics. Does anyone actually see a game plan when we go away? i'm not saying ‘Emery out’ as i'd like to give him the 2 years he is promised. What i am saying is this time next year we could be in the same predicament except every team around us will be stronger. maybe not Chelsea 🤣.


1.) 29 Apr 2019 22:12:18
If we don't improve our away form next season the blame lies with one person. At this moment in time, it has to be players because most of the squad he inherited with the same problems. We can blame him or the players but until he has his chance to put it right or not, it is an issue that has been around this place for the last 6 or 7 years. I have my opinions as to why we struggle with defending and that lies with xhaka, mustaffi, not a good enough left back or right back and wing backs that can do a job but we can't put out three reliable center backs. We do seem as a team to have just stopped playing football as well, which i can't explain. Players i trust and rate are not applying themselves as they were. Why?

2.) 29 Apr 2019 22:45:03
I see no plan or idea - “ Mustafi gets exposed in a back 4 “. 7 days later - Mustafi in a back 4. Clueless

Clearly no training or coaching happening with defence.

The guy interviewed for the job and must have known we can’t defend - no excuses and no lowering of the bar

It was right to get rid of Wenger but it’s disrespectful to let this guy do no better and say it’s ok

Playing a crap midfield in front of a crap defence against Oakace - a joke

Making Ozil captain - a joke

His coaching from the touch line - best thing he did was the dive impression but then did a crappy swim - joke

Wenger left a good attack - the only plus this season

Wenger left a poor defence and we strengthen but going no where under new management and Bould

Issue - board has NO ambition and that’s why we are where we are. Swimming in the middle size pool with no ambition or crazy funds required.

I don’t want him sacked but his appointment sums up our ambitions perfectly then you have the mess of our back room staff and management. Club needs rebuilding.

3.) 29 Apr 2019 22:55:17
This time last year it was the responsibility of one man to make sure all his players did apply themselves and if they didn't he was accountable for his players actions and inaction.
1 year on and I don't think those rules have changed.

4.) 29 Apr 2019 23:59:13
Steve - why does the guy play Mustafi in a back 4 some 7 days after stating he gets exposed in a back 4? Why play a poor midfield in front of a poor defence against palace? Why make Ozil captain? Baffling.

5.) 30 Apr 2019 01:48:33
Well he must be countable for his team selection and coaching methods, we all slammed wenger for playing xhaka week in week out, ge get a new contract and he is a regular in a team. You want to build then use the young players. Iwobi seriously what a waste of space, miki too. Mustafi is a mistake waiting to happen so why not play the young greek and coach him right and make him learn from his mistakes, well at least he will be learning. I mentioned this before you blame the players and not the system which is ridiculous. Burnley, Stoke, Leicester and wolves have they hot a better defenders than us of its so obviously right then maybe we should get a few from those teams I’m sure they won’t be that expensive.

6.) 30 Apr 2019 02:10:16
In Emerys defence. He knew full well that we had defensive problems and signings were made accordingly. With a limited budget the following were signed: Leno, Lichtsteiner, Sokratis, Guendouzi and Torreira. Bar Lichtsteiner, who was signed on a free, all have been decent signings and have been integrated well into the team.
If I recall correctly we started the season without Koscileny, Maitland-Niles and Jenkinson due to injury and then two of our top performing and first choice defenders Bellerin and Holding suffered season-ending injuries. Whilst, following a bust World Cup, Torreira was integrated slowly into the first team. As a result of the injuries Koscielny was rushed back from his serious injury, whilst other defenders were rarely rested. Monreal and Kolasinac also picked up injuries and missed matches.
At present we sit in 5th place, one place higher than last season, with more points than last season and we are in the semi-final of the EL having beaten Napoli over two legs without conceding a goal, with the tactics spot on.
I am certain that Emery will look to the club to sign a CB and possibly 2 full backs in the summer window, and will also possibly move on at least a couple of defenders who he knows are not up to the job. Don't forget he has barely had a season in the job and with 2 matches to go in the PL, we can still finish top 4 and are 2 matches from the EL Final. It has taken Klopp 3 years and Pochettino 5 years to assemble their current teams and neither have won a trophy to date, yet are considered to be doing an excellent job at their respective teams. In addition I am certain that Emery realises that the make up of the current squad lacks players with defensive attributes across the squad. We have way too many players that add lttle defensively in a league that requires players to defends from the front to the back. You get little defensively from Ozil, Mkhitaryan and Iwobi. Whilst Bellerin, Maitland-Niles, Monreal and Kolasinac are not the best of defenders, even if they do offer quite a lot going forward. Ramsey is great going forward, but again offers little defensively. Interestingly we are reportedly looking to sign midfield players that provide a defensive shift, such as Dennis Praet and others.

{Ed001's Note - in summary, to save any of you reading this idiocy as RG is still not understanding reality, RG is defending Emery by saying those things that were nothing to do with him were done right. There, you can thank me for saving you time that you would have completely wasted on that total load of nonsense.}

7.) 30 Apr 2019 02:16:00
Sy, i understand what you are saying but i also understand he might not be blessed with many options. I can't think of a player or players that are good enough to come in and do a proper job. What central defender is going to come in, what right back, what left back? He is hamstrung this season with what he started with. Me personally i don't think we have the players at the back or a proper holding mid, however many carpets we look under. He inherited problems and he hasn't been able to eradicate that with the standard of defender depth he was left and came in too. Ask your mates who support any top 6 team, how many of our defenders they would take and you will get your answer. No ask any top half supporter!

8.) 30 Apr 2019 06:29:34
Steve - I agree and disagree with you as he had Kos on the bench and could have played a back 3. He’s made so many strange decisions front, midfield and defence all season and has tinkered the most compared to every epl side.
I agree the players are poor plus injuries haven’t been perfect but he should still coach the defence better, not put Chambers on loan ( I criticised him heavily at the time ) .

I agree that he deserves one more season but I don’t think he’s earned it st all not done anything to suggest it will change BUT I just think decency means you have two seasons - time will tell but I give him 4/ 10 this season

Keep the bar high and don’t let him crawl under it because we’ve had a change and he shouts crap from the touch line.

9.) 30 Apr 2019 06:30:02
Thanks for the reply Steve - you made me think 👍.

10.) 30 Apr 2019 07:36:30
That’s for saving me from reading that drivel Ed. 😂

Steve you don’t need to ask fans of other teams anything.

You need to ask yourself how a manager can be supplied with a new CB and DM and and still be as woeful if not worse defensively. You would absolutely slaughter Wenger for this joke of a season but it’s all good because it’s Emery.

Some nut job actually said he’d improved players the other day, he’s not improved one, the majority look worse, including our new DM.

It’s literally like they have no direction.

Why are you defending the indefensible. The team is more of a shambles than it’s ever been.

Why are you clutching at anything rather than seeing what’s actually happening. It’s like you have your fingers in your ears going lalalala.

We don’t even play decent football, do you have any idea what style of football we’re even supposedly playing, high press, counter or the just utter 💩 system.

11.) 30 Apr 2019 07:36:52
Firstly I would like to thank Ed001 for posting a defence of myself to a rude comment he made to me yesterday. Hopefully, he will do the same today. If you continue to attack comments I make with rude, odd, rants then you will lose another fan that simply has an opinion. I have no problem with well constructed, useful responses, but using the words 'idiocy' and 'nonsense' are hardly constructive to what is a just opinion.
My comment above is a defence of Emery, who after all did take over a team in decline and there were limited funds available to rectify the situation. Defensive players have suffered injuries and suspensions, I actually have no idea what you mean when you state that my comment above amounts to 'things that were nothing to do with him were done right'. And would be pleased if you could kindly clarify this strange comment. I reiterate that we are currently sitting in 5th place, one place higher than last season and have more points than last season, whilst having beaten Napoli over 2 legs without conceding a goal and are in the semi final of the EL. Yes, recent PL results have been poor, but so have the results of all 4 CL chasers, 3 of whom are still in European competition, which as the season ends shows the fatigue in the respective squads. Emery was handed a leaky defence with the likes of Jenkinson and Lichtsteiner, who if your comment that Emery had nothing to do with signings is correct, hewas a player who is clearly well past his best. In addition the defnsive injury situation has been dire. Bellerin and Holding have missed most of the season, others misssed the start. Let's see if you allow me the courtesy of this response and if you can make a sensible reply all the better. As for understanding reality. I can assure you I do. I played football to a high level and have my coaching badges. Perhaps you can let me know your qualifications to comment.

{Ed001's Note - you have been told a billion times but refuse to listen that Emery does not sign players. As for rude, you deserve everything you get with the way you speak down to everyone when you are not in any position to do so. You have been blocked a number of times for your attitude but refuse to heed the warnings, just like you refuse to listen when you are told Emery is a coach and does not conduct transfer business.}

12.) 30 Apr 2019 08:11:11
I think RG went to the Donald Trump school of reality Ed001 mate, simply deny the all facts and stick to what suits his preferred argument over and over and over again.
the rest of the world can accept what they want it means absolutely nothing to RG or Donald, what suits them is all the truth they need.

{Ed001's Note - I can see a lot of similarities.}

13.) 30 Apr 2019 10:51:35
Ed you are a legend mate, RG fifa doesn’t count as coaching badges.

{Ed001's Note - I really would not care if he had them. The FA coaching badges are nothing to do with an ability to analyse the game. They are not even indicative of an ability to coach, considering they were created by people who did not coach teams - such as Alex Ferguson and 'Arry Redknapp, who rarely even went out on the training pitches to watch training. Well 'Arry would if there were cameras around! The coaching badges are just a way to milk more money from the lower end of the game for the FA.}

14.) 30 Apr 2019 11:34:06
I know everyone is looking at our defence as the problem, but i don't quite see it like that. Yes Mustafi is garbage and has to go, but we have other defenders who are good, but we still get exposed. I think its the way were set up, with absolutely no press, even when the ball is right up the pitch. Time and again against Leicester, they could bring the ball right up to our defence with absolutely no pressure or tackles. Maddison had our third of the pitch to himself. Iwobi and Miti sort of track back, but with no real purpose of supporting their wing back (combined with the fact there are totally clueless as forward players) and Torreira has gone massively backwards, and combined with Xhaka is giving no protection to the back 2/ 3. Ultimately its down to the manager to change our style, the way we transfer the ball up the pitch (still way too slow, too square and over commit ahead of the ball) , and the way we defend as a team (actually press the ball, pick up runners etc) and until these things change, i don't see our results changing. For me either the bulk of the team needs to go to enable the manager to bring in new players who can play the style he wants, or, if we are already playing the style he wants, then i believe we need to change managers.

15.) 30 Apr 2019 12:17:20
Strange that some people constantly criticise premier league refs yet each and everyone of them have passed numerous exams and have enough certificates to paper the average size bungalow.
Last I heard Lewis Hamilton didn't hold a UK driving licence but he seems to know what he's doing behind the wheel.
Qualifications are proof of being able to revise and retain enough information to pass a test, ability and wisdom are gadged soley on how much others value what you offer.
And by others I don't mean agreeing with yourself numerous times or telling people how good you are, it has to be people other than yourself and there value of what you contribute to any given subject.

16.) 30 Apr 2019 16:02:16
Stoner, that is your opinion and that is mine. one question. Why are you right and i'm wrong? Because you have a different opinion than me, it definitely doesn't make it right, or wrong come to that. You just think differently, some people think the same and some dont. I've taken a relaxed view after wenger left because of all the problems he left behind, i got bitter and didn't enjoy watching is. Believe me or not, i prefer watching us now because i'm not bitter. I do think we play better football but i also hate us getting beat and sometimes think we play rubbish. For me, i don't think we have the players to do any better at the moment and i'm happy to see where this summer goes. I actually thought last summer, wenger left us rotten to the core and i always thought this was a massive job that would not be sorted in one season. i'm sticking to that.

17.) 30 Apr 2019 18:06:59
Steve are giving my opinion on something that is so obvious, something there is no getting away from, something that is there for all to see.

I’m not bitter in anyway shape or form, I’m utterly disappointed having been utterly disappointed with Wengers last few seasons.

Emery has not improved a single player, no improved us one iota defensively, not improved our style of football, not shown he has a clue how to make us more solid defensively.

I have no problem with you being happy Wenger has gone as I am too I just never expected us to be so abjectly bad and it’s only United being even worse than props us up into 5th position.

If we had any defined shape and looked like defensively we were so much better organised and were just losing games because maybe we didn’t just out score the other side I’d be happy but that’s not even remotely happening.

I’m not even sure it’s a differing of opinion but that you honestly don’t want to accept what you’re watching.

Guardiola and Klopp actually improve players, make them so much better Emery has not even shown the ability to do that.

A 22 game unbeaten run was a time to build confidence, mental strength and get a group of players on board with what you want to achieve and a way you want to play. Absolutely none of that happened.

18.) 30 Apr 2019 20:13:14
No stoner, that is opinion but you can't accept that i have a different one than you. i'm not as upset about this season as you, that's not opinion, that's fact. I didn't expect there to be massive change, i'm not of that mind. But for you to tell me, i don't want to accept what i am watching, what is that about. Do you not think if i wasn't happy, i would damn well say so, i don't need help on that score. My expectations for this season was very low and for me i am happy that we haven't gone totally off the charts. Like i say, i thought we were left in a terrible state and that's also my opinion.

I totally accept your different opinion and now you’ve basically explained you expected us to be utter tripe I get where your coming from.

As I said I initially didn’t get what you were seeing but as I just said, as you expected this rubbish then it makes sense.

I’m not upset either, just as I said disappointed we remain a laughing stock defensively.

But like you say it’s your opinion to be happy with that and enjoy an abject season in the hope that we will get better.

Stoner, i will say this, Emery by a few including you, was given no credit whatsoever for getting us into what now looked like a fantastic position just over a week ago and into the semi of a EL. But over this last few games has gone absolutely pete tong. He got us and the players into that position and he was slagged off. He got no credit whatsoever for it, so obviously now those same people are not going to look at our present situation and say anything other than, he is crap, he hasn't improved players etc. that's just the way it is, we were lucky to go unbeaten for 22 games people were saying, for me that's utter bull. We deserved that and we also deserve to be upset about the last three games and rightly so because it just highlights how well we were actually doing before it all fell down. These 3 games have turned people against Emery that's for sure but some were not in his court anyway. But that football and football fans, always right. Lol.

Steve it’s just THE most hilarious thing watching you defend all this stuff, not a single improvement anywhere bar rejoicing a few more points than Wengers final abject season with little or no interest from anyone on or off the pitch.

You really couldn’t make it up, yourself and me old mate Malaga loving the new boss when the fact is he’s done nowt.

Did you give Wenger credit for being top at Christmas in Ramsey’s Stella season or making the semi’s in the EL? 🤔😂

I don’t say this to fall out with you mate and we all like you say have opinions but it’s because it’s you two, oh and “Walter Mitty” that make it so amusing. 😉😂.

22.) 01 May 2019 10:53:51
Not sure i'm going to post again 😂 every time i do someone ends up in a massive debate 🙈 jokes aside, i kind of agree with you both Steve and Stoner, i can take a few possitives from the season like the home games against the bigger teams you could see he had the players hyped, we didn’t get that under wenger, you could also see it against Napoli in both legs. But he does need to sort the defence and the away from out, especially if he wants to be with us fir the 3rd season.

23.) 02 May 2019 04:30:56
No stoner, you say it because someone dares to think differently to you. you're not happy, i am ok with where we are. I don't start trying to belittle you personally because you don't agree with me. I disagree with you full stop. I don't call you whatever or whoever that's just disrespectful.

Really poor team selection from Emery today, that being said i thought Elneny wasn’t too bad, tried to get things going as much as he could. Ozil turned it on in the second half, he didn’t have a lot of movement ahead of him though. AMN really impressive again in the second half. But the big problem lies with Mustafi, if that guy ever plays for this football team again i'd be shocked! What a liability, he can personally take blame for 2 of the 3 goals today. Useless headless chicken. We missed Xhaka today turning things over in the middle. Happy easter everyone.


1.) 21 Apr 2019 22:21:28
I think the team rotation today was for whatever reason, one or two steps too far. Our performance was really poor and mr j moss should not be reffing at this level.



09 Apr 2019 18:24:55
Does anyone else think we should play Kolasinac as a winger or just me? Emery has said we need more width hence why he was chasing wingers, i think improve the LB and play Kolasinac on the left wing, he has been our main attacking point most of the season and has caused a lot of teams a lot of problems, maybe he could be a force with less defensive responsibility? Just a thought, could save us some pennies in the summer as well.

Didn't we try that at City 93 mate?

Was it still Maine road then,? G62.

3.) 09 Apr 2019 21:21:02
Yes Sano and Franny Lee was up top for City and Dave Watson at CB mate :-)

4.) 10 Apr 2019 21:37:53
😂 i'm not too sure Gunner, i know he has played left side of midfield as a wing back, but as a winger i don't believe he has mate. I think it would definitely be worth a try.

5.) 11 Apr 2019 08:24:44
Fair enough 93 mate he Just doesn't look like your every day lean slim wing machine does he :-) he looks more like a quarterback in appearance to me :-)

6.) 11 Apr 2019 14:57:55
Cant be any worse than Iwobi, although to be fair my gran could play left wing better than Iwobi, and shes been dead for over 30 years.

Wow, great post Ed, you say Alaba is possible, obviously he would be expensive. a lot see him as one of the best in the position. I don’t want to put us down, but what attracting him to Arsenal?


{Ed002's Note - Nothing is attracting him to Arsenal right now.}

Perisic is an option to buy, Barcelona wanted a obligation to buy. If the player can’t settle to life or football, you are not forced to buy.

There must be a reason no one wanted him and he ended up playing in china.

He was joint top scorer in his first full season, playing from the bench for the first half of the season and missed quite a few games in the secound half. No chance i would be happy to see PEA leave! The guys got atleast two more years at this level. We should be able to rebuild with transfer funds/ wages from the useless lot before we look to shift one of if not our best player!

He struggled in the play off semi against my home town team, especially when they conceded, they were lucky to get through it. I think he needs more time and if he were to step up he will need a real leader next to him.

Wow, great read and agree with the majority.

I prefer a 433 especially if we are keeping Ozil, playing him as a false 9, and having the width coming from auba and laca (inside forward) i thought worked well against Napoli before losing Ramsey, i think if he can get abit more pressing off of Ozil through the middle, that could work. We would then need to control the game a little better and pairing Torriera with either AMN or Goundouzi as the box to box energy, with a play controlling midfielder benega may be able to do it but i see him as more of a advanced play maker. Granit Xhaka does this quite well some games but has too many mistakes and should be moved on, i think Torreira would be a better fit if a true DM is found. Then as you say a LB is vital, i think Kieran Thierney should be top priority, looks a real talent. Then move onto a CB as i think Koscielny is past his best, i wouldn’t mind a Dunk/ Zouma/ Keane a player who is going to get there body in the way of everything, and already knows the league, i thought Holding was really blossoming with Socratis when they got a good run together at the start of the season and hopefully the injury hasn’t caused him too much of a setback. As for your cup team i think it makes sense to really get the youngsters in, but i think you missed out Willock who i think could be ready made Ramsey replacement, will get up and down, eye for a pass, and will score given the opportunity, one thing we miss is goals from midfield. Think iv put down everything i wanted to 😂 again great read mate!

Xhaka for me this year has again been hot and cold, we have missed him in games where he hasn’t played but again he is a liability 80%, Goundouzi would be more of a replacement for Xhaka as he is always available deep turns and looks to get play moving, great vision, just needs to work on the timing of his play a little more, but that will come woth experience in thw league AMN wouldn’t be able to play in a deep play maker role, he’s more of a box to box playmaker, suppose he would be a good replacement for Ramsey, if he could hit the ground running. On the plus side i was rather impressed again by Joe Willock on Sunday, showing signs of real promise, potential future midfield 3 of Terreira, AMN/ Willock Goundeouzi. I feel in the summer we need to really be buying leaders more than anything, for me 2 new commanding CBs a LB with an engine, and some steel in the middle, i don't want Doucoure but a player of his size and mobility would be great, just abit more technique 🤣 if Emery gets this summer right then we could either be challenging seriously for 2nd/ 3rd if he gets it wrong we will be exactly where we are now. Big summer needed!
