What does everyone think of the pictures / rumours regarding Mourinho?


1.) 27 Oct 2019 07:11:28
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.

2.) 27 Oct 2019 08:26:30
What pictures are these mate?

3.) 27 Oct 2019 14:40:09
Who's reporting these stories?
Oh look it's the Benzema and Higguian mystery medical media set again :-)

4.) 27 Oct 2019 15:27:26
Tbf, iv only seen it on twitter, but he was pictured in executive section at the Emirates, aparently sat with Sanllehi.

Although i just think the guy was there to watch football, as he lives in London and i doubt he is welcome at the bridge.

I don't think he would be a bad till the end of the season replacement if the club were to sack Emery, however, I wouldn’t give him any longer than that, and doubt he would want any longer than that with how much money he likes to spend.
Anyhow, i just thought i would get peoples opinion on him.

And no G62 it wasn’t sky.

5.) 27 Oct 2019 21:00:59
No its on the metro express and all other well known mischief makers and truth inventors 93 mate :-) 1% facts twisted into 0.0000000% truth :-)
No credible outlast is claiming it to be anything more than what it was which is why they are and remaind credible even though less rich than those who see truth as an inconvenience.

6.) 28 Oct 2019 02:49:50
This rumour is likely to be utter bull. That said, JoMo is the last man on earth I would want in charge of Arsenal.

Personally I don't know what we are meant to do here. I like Rafa Benitez though - and he is available.

{Ed047's Note - after the mess he’s left behind in his previous two roles he’s clearly past his sell by date and plays outdated football.

Why would people want that here 🤷‍♂️

7.) 28 Oct 2019 08:14:32
Any chance we could pry Brendan Rodgers away from Leicester City.

8.) 28 Oct 2019 08:33:18
We have a more than reasonable squad and a level headed reasonably good manager could quite easily to come in and turn things around very quickly and give us more than decent chance of top 4 finish.
We don't need Pep or Jurgen to turn this squad into champions league qualifiers we just need someone who knows what he's doing and is happy for the players to make headlines and be the stars of the show.
Titles? Then we would need a Jurgen or Pep type manager but we are not yet ready for that level of competitiveness only to begin the journey towards it again.

9.) 28 Oct 2019 11:05:24
Why would Rodgers leave a better club to come to us.

10.) 29 Oct 2019 21:43:02
I think he would love the arsenal job! Would I want him? Probably not, like with United the style change would not appease fans, would he do a better job than emery I would say yes, . Mourinho has that attitude of a bloke who wants to shag someone else’s wife better.

11.) 31 Oct 2019 04:49:19
Would anyone else wantEddie Howe? He’s a manager who has a game plan, sticks to it, moves clubs the right way up the leagues/ tables.

{Ed047's Note - not anywhere near good enough for me.

12.) 31 Oct 2019 11:47:43
The fact that Emery is in a weak position, esp. in the minds of fans, it's no surprise that every Tom Tick and Harry will be linked with us. Mourinho just happens to be a free agent at the moment which makes it an inevitability he will be highlighted. Don't be surprised to see Allegri and Rodgers, amongst others flagged up in the coming weeks, if fortunes do not change.

I usually would not expect Arsenal to get rid of Emery until the end of the season, it's not been the clubs DNA to do that unless corruption/ illegality is implied. Having said that, I would not be surprised if the genetic make up at the club has sufficiently changed to see a swifter exit. I can't see this happening if there is no obvious replacement.

Two years ago I would have baulked at the idea of Mourinho, but I fear I could be persuaded in the midst of the defensive and organisational chaos in the team.

Strange times.

13.) 31 Oct 2019 11:53:11
I'm not sure about Eddie Howe, but we don't really know what he is capable of at a bigger club with better players. He can't be any worse than Emery surely; we gave him a job?

14.) 01 Nov 2019 02:17:30
Nothings going to happen to Emery anytime soon. I’d be keeping an eye on Enrique who was doing good with Spain before having to step away for personal reasons. He’s the type of manager who could at least get us back to playing football.

Mourinho - too big a risk. Expensive gamble.
Eddie Howe - not high profile enough

Pep and klopp people like. We need a manager the fans and the public can get behind.

15.) 03 Nov 2019 13:59:43
What about Rafa? Premier league experience, can organise a defense and has won trophies.

16.) 04 Nov 2019 12:50:53
Ed, what’s your opinion on the whole manager front with Arsenal. If this form doesn’t improve soon, how long would you expect Emery to remain, and do you think with what you know, if sacked, do you think they’d look for a profile or maybe stick with Freddie?

{Ed002's Note - The problem is largely with the structure of the club and in the big scheme of things the improvements that one might expect with the change of a coach will be constrained by that. Hence the problem getting a Technical Director and ending up with Edu, who was way down the list, this past summer.}



15 Feb 2019 19:52:37
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.

I bet Xhaka was sat at home laughing. He mist be feeling a oittle better after seeing that result, although the performance was slightly better, we really need to learn how to see out a game. 3 games on the spin we have been in a winning position with 20 ish minutes to play.


{Ed047's Note - if he just watched Torriera I doubt whether he’d be laughing, how he gets in the team ahead of him is ridiculous.

1.) 02 Nov 2019 19:07:22
He surely realises himself he isn’t good enough for this league. However, he doesn’t pick himself to play week in week out 🤣.

{Ed047's Note - 😂 good point!

2.) 02 Nov 2019 19:40:17
To be fair its impossible for any player to decide he's not good enough, some players are their own harshest critics while Ibrahimovic still thinks he's the best player in the world at 38 and probably still will at 58.
If Emery picks Xhaka it's 100% Emerys bad regardless of how poor Xhaka plays.



06 Sep 2019 21:04:20
Nice to see Nketiah and Nelson both on the score sheet for England U21’s tonight.


1.) 06 Sep 2019 21:17:14
Just seen that. Good little boost.

2.) 07 Sep 2019 06:43:23
Absolutely, it’s great to see the youngsters coming through and space in the squad being made to accommodate them. Excellent work by Mertesacker and Freddie, who now has a role with the first team.
I am looking forward to seeing the likes of Nelson, Smith-Rowe and Martinelli being given valuable playing time, opposed to Mkhitayan.



15 Aug 2019 20:52:01
Ed1, just caught up on the latest ask Ed, through what years did you live in Sunny Donny? Thought i'd let you know the town is still painted orange on a Saturday night 🤣.


{Ed001's Note - it was a while ago now, maybe 15 years ago.}



09 Aug 2019 09:36:39
hows everyone feeling about the upcoming season? Pretty good transfer window, hopefully we can shift one or two more out to a european team before their windows shut. Thought i'd share my team for Sunday

AMN Chambers Sokratis Kola
Torreria Willock
Pepe Laca Auba

Luiz to play DM and slot into a back 3 when were attacking. i'm going 4-1 to the Arsenal. COYG.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 10:59:56
I'm thinking if we get things right we are well capable of 3rd or 4th while obviously accepting if we get things wrong we could easily finish 5th or 6th.
We have the squad now no question so it all comes down to what we do with it.
The one thing I'm absolutely certain of is over 38 games we and everyone else will get what they earn no more no less and refs decisions var injury will as always be just excuses used by those who fail to be the best they could have been.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 12:52:51
I can't see Pepe starting, or even playing, on Sunday.

3.) 09 Aug 2019 16:13:46
I feel we have a very good chance i feel of getting top 4 4th maybe 3rd even and on balance after this window our overall squad quality is slightly better then Utd and Chelsea. However with Arsenal we never do it easy looks how we messed up the end of least seasson when it was in our grasp to get top 4. Injuires will be key obvs. and the treatment table is already getting tasty before a ball is kicked. Getting Bellerin and Holding back will help alot. Not sure Luiz is the answer to our defensive concerns but has to be a better option than Mustafi. The mentality is the key for us more than anything else

Utd I feel will miss Lukaku more than they realise for his physical presence in their playing style. For me utd lack midfield creativity and rely a lot on the what sort of mood Pogba is in still. Lost of running but not much Guile and craft for me

Chelsea losing Hazard is massive although the Pulisic looks decent I jut don't think there is enough of a consistent goal threat up front with Chelsea.

Spurs are a bit ahead of us but if they lose Erikson that could a big blow as as he is their main creater.

4.) 09 Aug 2019 16:21:01
Maitland-Niles Luiz Sokratis Kolasinac
Torreira Xhaka
Pepe Ceballos Aubameyang



28 Jun 2019 20:42:19
Sky reporting we have met with the representatives of zaha/ palace, do any of the eds have any info on this? Or how were thinking of funding the transfer?


{Ed047's Note - If it’s on Sky it must be true and Arsenal are setting up a go fund me page to pay for him, Kroenke has put in a fiver.

1.) 28 Jun 2019 21:04:45
According to Sky Artetta is handling the negotiations himself in his capacity as Arsenal manager:-)

2.) 29 Jun 2019 02:17:21
Love it Ed lol I heard kroenke up it to 10 pound as he was getting accused of not spending enough money.

Laca is no captain, vice captain maybe, but we know he probably isn’t going to start every week, he goes missing/ stroppy when it isn’t going quite his way. Yeah when he is good he is fantastic and puts a shift in. For me i’d be happy with 1 of 3 Sokratis, Bellerin or Xhaka, yeah Xhaka performamces are not the best, but he does show leadership on the pitch, he shouts, he instructs, he let's players know. I would still rather we sold him, but i do believe he is our beat option, he’s also the captain of swiss national side. must do somethinf right.
