PEA has a good chance of going according to SKY just now



1.) 31 Jan 2022 19:42:45
Their saying agreement reached.

{Ed014's Note - thank god for that!

2.) 31 Jan 2022 19:47:41
Ed14, that’s our business done then.

{Ed014's Note - yep can’t see anyone else coming in. We apparently made attempts for Melo and Vlahovic neither worked out and that was that.

3.) 31 Jan 2022 19:51:04
As long as we are not paying the balance of his salary Ed. He wanted to go play for Barca, so he should accept whatever they can afford to pay him, but we shouldn’t be making up the difference.

{Ed014's Note - sadly I’d imagine we’re paying a fair chunk Epping, can’t see Barca as affording a lot to be honest.

4.) 31 Jan 2022 19:56:30
Free transfer on a permanent deal…. That must of been some rift with arteta.

{Ed014's Note - £350 grand a week off the wage bill, result!

5.) 31 Jan 2022 20:05:32
Roughly £25m but we could lose just about the on Nketiah.

6.) 31 Jan 2022 20:09:32
If that’s true Wilfred, I am over the moon

Good riddance.

7.) 31 Jan 2022 20:10:28
It’s no result without a replacement ED

We are weak end of.

{Ed014's Note - the other question to ask is who around us has got stronger?

8.) 31 Jan 2022 20:26:06
Mores to the point

Arteta could have dealt with it better and kept him until the end of the season

It’s very costly to have no CL football as we know.

9.) 31 Jan 2022 20:26:44
I disagree Banbury mate

We started playing well as soon as pea was dropped. So we lost nothing.

10.) 31 Jan 2022 20:33:59
Apart from partey and god help us xhaka we are going to the end of the season with the team that couldn’t beat Burnley at home… let’s hope lacazette don’t get injured otherwise we will be scraping to get in the nations conference for me.

11.) 31 Jan 2022 20:39:38
We're are 2 injuries away from disaster imo but that's life I suppose.

12.) 31 Jan 2022 21:20:44
Spurs might of got stronger ed.

13.) 31 Jan 2022 21:25:35
I'm with Malaga, we had Auba haunting the place like a well paid ghost. Better for the players he isn't there, he has been awful for 18 months.

14.) 31 Jan 2022 21:15:37
Some of that £350k can go to new contracts for some of the younger players who actually care about the club.



27 Jan 2022 20:24:15
Chambers gone

Thank god.


1.) 27 Jan 2022 20:36:54
Didn't even hear rumours of this transfer happening. Kinda gives me hope of incomings now. As for Chambers, i am glad he's gone. Never really did much and it's another one of the wage bill.

2.) 27 Jan 2022 20:50:35
Does any one know how much we got.

3.) 27 Jan 2022 20:59:33
Bit harsh - he was a professional and did alright for us. Don’t understand people jumping on players just because they leave.

4.) 27 Jan 2022 21:31:11
Would of rather kept chambers as back up to Tomi than Cedric. good luck to the lad, always professional and did a job when asked.

5.) 27 Jan 2022 22:21:37
We got 2m for him.

6.) 27 Jan 2022 22:52:15
Yep better than Cedric all day long But no one wants to buy Cedric I guess - figure that one out we’re left with the worse player hmmmm! COYG.

7.) 28 Jan 2022 10:24:14
Must admit I really don't get the "thank god" comment.

I understand he was never a regular starter, but he always gave his best for the club, never embarrassed us, never complained, always played with a smile, and seemed to always get us out of a hole when he was called upon during injuries etc.

and much prefer him to Cedric.

wish him all the best at the villa, I'm not sure he will get much more playing time tho, but deserves respect from arsenal fans surely.

8.) 28 Jan 2022 12:34:41
Well I cannot say that I am dissapointed .

9.) 28 Jan 2022 18:39:42
I thought he was a good guy, always available, always tried his best and didn't cause problems. I'm going to miss him in the squad.

10.) 28 Jan 2022 20:24:05
People do need to understand teams need a squad? Would I want him starting away to Man City. No, but then again whoever we pick we would lose anyway. As much as we would all like a squad of 22 world class players, it ain’t going to happen. Even if we were some kind of super rich club, for me, Any player not in the starting XI, by definition is not world class, as if they were they would be in the starting XI, or they are world class in their own mind, but are now majorly peed off and will quickly become troublesome when not picked. I think you need a squad of about 15 top top players, with other good players to back them up. Chambers and Elneny fit that template. They are not world class, but good players who know their place. No toys being thrown out the pram when not picked, but professional to the best of their ability when played. So am I happy seeing a squad that still contains Xhaka and PEA while Chambers goes, absolutely not.

11.) 28 Jan 2022 22:12:51
Good luck to Chambers at Villa he only going ever be a a bit part player for us and has never really nailed down a primary position between RB and CB, jack of of all master of none situation which happens to a lot of players really. A good pro sure but we have held onto these types of players for too long in my view to detriment of us and the player really so time to move on and free up space and wages. If Saliba comes back (hope he is given a proper chance as being doing well at Marsille) we have 4 Cb's anyway so we covered there with Holding, White and Gabby assuming Mari will be sold at season end.



09 Jun 2021 10:55:08
So EK is preparing another bid, 2 billion, if correct still not enough IMO. I think he has to be 2.5 billion and above to tempt the Americans.


1.) 09 Jun 2021 15:34:40
You just tagged on half a billion like it's nothing. Do you realise what half a billion actually is.

2.) 09 Jun 2021 20:08:26
Oh dear understand it in the context of the situation which you clearly don’t - to us it’s huge but the new offer won’t even raise an eyebrow on the Americans forehead . Yes to us it’s huge to a billionaire who has said “ we don’t need the money “ it’s nothing.

3.) 10 Jun 2021 00:12:47
Quick google search says that Arsenal are valued roughly around $2.8bn so I imagine the owners would want more than that.

4.) 10 Jun 2021 08:09:19
That’s right fuser which is why the yanks would want something approaching 3 billion . EK is way off the mark.

5.) 10 Jun 2021 15:09:17
It’s great to want someone who is passionate about your club being the owner but is he a realistic prospect? Spotify is only worth £3bn itself, so without another backer alongside EK I don’t see it as being realistic.

6.) 10 Jun 2021 21:16:37
Spotify is worth $46bn.

7.) 11 Jun 2021 13:26:54
It doesn't matter how rich or poor you are half a billion is a huge difference. I understand the original statement. Also $2.8 billion dollars is just under £2 billion pounds sterling as of this morning, if you can't grasp basic currency, don't band around fictitious figures.

8.) 11 Jun 2021 14:08:15
They aren't going to sell at all. Arsenal fc makes them money. Its a fairy tale that is never going to happen.



06 Apr 2021 11:15:12
Talk of Odegaard being offered out to other PL clubs this Summer, let’s hope he’s that happy with us he stays.


{Ed002's Note - Arsenal have no option to buy him.

Martin Odegaard (RW/AM) Arsenal beat Real Sociedad to a loan in January but have no option to buy. Real Madrid are happy to include him on a lengthy list of players that they are open to selling or including in exchanges in the summer - and that may suit Seville who have a player that Real Madrid are showing an interest in. Ideally Real Madrid would like an auction for him but will seek €40M for a cash sale. Arsenal would consider him on a permanent deal but it depends on finances which are tight.}

1.) 07 Apr 2021 20:20:25
If he has good options it's difficult to think why he would want to be at Arsenal next season.

Reasons staying would be game time he gets at Arsenal.

Reasons for not staying are it's highly likely we won't be playing European football next season plus there is nothing apart from wishful thinking to argue Arsenal will be any different next season under Arteta than they were last season or are this season under Arteta.

I don't know the lad and maybe there are reasons I'm not aware of why he would want to be at Arsenal next season but there certainly isn't any obvious reason to think he would.



05 Oct 2020 19:10:57
Partey isn’t done yet - I’d be amazed if we were to get him.


1.) 14 Oct 2020 10:09:55
Are you not amazed?!?!

Another good win but two silly goals to give away,

MA must be pleased with how we started, what a difference a year makes.


{Ed014's Note - it’s really difficult not to get to over excited about Arsenal as a whole right now.

Despite ed02 saying behind the scenes we’re badly run they look to me like they’re getting things right and long may it continue.

We’ve talk of possibly 2 more additions and despite no Champions League I think we’re still a huge attraction for players, getting Jesus and Zinchenko was an incredibly smart move.

We’ve not even seen Vieira or Marquinhos yet and no idea who the new additions might be.

We seem now to have a really good balance across the squad and let’s keep momentum and see where it takes us.

1.) 14 Aug 2022 12:14:53
Ed2 is anti Arsenal 100% - for me it seems giving Arteta time was the right thing to do …. and I’m not saying we will be doing this that and the other but the recruitment this time around seems the best we’ve had . We have picked up 2 M City players who know the PL inside out so no settling in period and Saliba has settled very well and looks the part . I still think MA needs top 4 or the pressure is on but we aren’t far from having a very good side.

{Ed002's Note - Why would I be anti-Arsenal?}

2.) 14 Aug 2022 12:38:19
---------More than happy to stop sharing anything with the Arsenal page----------

3.) 14 Aug 2022 11:47:14
I also think the owners were shocked at opposition to Super League and from what I read wanted / needed to get fans back onside. It was a dark time and I even looked at season tickets at the Amex - wanted nothing to do with it - nor LIV golf for that matter.

Since then they`ve had a plan spent a lot but well and revamped the playing staff getting rid of the loafers. I think we have young talented hungry players with the hungry aspect the final piece and a prerequisite of players bought in.

Liked the cut of Xhaka`s gib on the All Or Nothing and hope he keeps his form up. Dare I say he looked a real goal threat too. Was completely unseeable a year ago Tierney would be a sub - testament to the recruitment.

Don`t write Tielemans off Ed but Fofana £80 mill after yesterday not for me - rather have Martinez! ( Only joking ) COYG onwards and upwards.

{Ed014's Note - I don’t want Tielemens because I don’t want a player who doesn’t have the work ethic required now to play for Arsenal.

I don’t question that he has some talent but I do question the fact he’s lazy and like Luke Shaw he always looks like he’s a little over weight.

4.) 14 Aug 2022 13:50:07
Fair point well made Ed014! So a no then hehe . I am confident whoever we bring in will be hungry and so by your words we won`t be signing Shaw or Tielemans #Footballerweightwatchers #Edfatshaming COYG.

{Ed014's Note - Shaw is a no simply because he’s shite!? that he likes KFC is a diet choice of his own mate.

Unfortunately no idea what food the other tubby lad likes ??

#idontdolazy! ?

5.) 14 Aug 2022 14:19:39
??? KFC! Have a great week Gooners VTH.

6.) 14 Aug 2022 16:05:53
I don’t know…

{Ed014's Note - you’re very naughty! ??


{Ed014's Note - I put your previous message back for ed02 mate, he may just have not read it yet.

8.) 14 Aug 2022 16:26:18
Cheers 14.

{Ed014's Note - no probs mate

9.) 14 Aug 2022 16:50:01
I’m only having a laugh 14 you know that . Football is so full of divided opinions.

{Ed014's Note - mate I do know that but not certain the other person would so just playing it safe. ?


11.) 15 Aug 2022 09:15:59
Calm down sharpie son.

10 Aug 2022 18:17:59
PEA off to Chelsea then ……interesting if correct.


1.) 10 Aug 2022 20:54:09
We all wanted him gone so makes no odds to us.

2.) 10 Aug 2022 21:28:25
It does if he bangs in 30+ which he is more than capable.

{Ed014's Note - was that when he wasn’t a lazy prick?

3.) 10 Aug 2022 22:44:36
Yes but as we know he is more than capable he let himself and the club down badly.

4.) 10 Aug 2022 22:54:54
Barcelona have become such a joke of a club. I know pages have been written on them but I still can't get over how awful they are. The Frenkie saga is the crap cherry on a sundae.

5.) 11 Aug 2022 07:44:17
We should just concentrate on our team.

6.) 11 Aug 2022 08:55:51
Would you buy him back? Me feck no! Therefore no worries! Quod Erat Demonstrandum VTH.

7.) 11 Aug 2022 09:07:19
Huge club with huge problems on and off the pitch Wire mate.

It appears they've been on easy Street so long now where everything just seemed to come so easily and effortlessly to them but the events of 2020 have completely shook the club to its ankles let alone it's knees and they haven't got a clue how to go about a recovery.

8.) 11 Aug 2022 09:07:51
VM, I think we should just concentrate on anyone discussing whatever they want or any player they want. I know it's an alien concept, but if we all try hard enough, I know we can do it!

9.) 11 Aug 2022 11:08:27
Personally, I wouldn't want him back at the club, not a question of his ability, he was fantastic for us at one point, and he has been good a Barca. but it seems his character and effort change after he has been somewhere for a while, Dortmund was very happy to be rid of him, and I honestly believe we made the right call to get him out of the club, he was a negative influence.

No doubt if he does go to Chelsea and score goals it will be touted as a mistake on our behalf but, he wasn't scoring as he uses to and I think the decision was not only the best for the club but also for him.

Wish him all the best (just don's score against us haha)

10.) 11 Aug 2022 12:40:47
For Pea and Arsenal it was over HG mate, much like a relationship that's run its course and the two parties no longer wish to be together.

Once the parties go there separate ways, that's that end of story, or should be. Hopefully both parties go on to find new love and happiness with a different partner and both get to live happy ever after, apart ?

Anything else is either bitterness or regret and neither of those are healthy ???.

11.) 11 Aug 2022 13:17:36

12.) 11 Aug 2022 16:09:09
Chill out sharp lol, just don’t see the point in moaning about past players we wanted rid off that’s all no harm intended in my comments, If I wanted my ex she wouldn’t be an ex (gunner62 inspired comment )

{Ed014's Note - I’m pretty sure Mr Sharpe is chilled, he simply said we can talk about what we like.

Aubamayang may go to Chelsea, it’s a subject of interest whether we wanted rid of the plum or not.

I’ve no snags with you VM but you talk about angst or bring a subject up about a thread when there is nothing to bring up mate.

So as you said, chill. ?

13.) 11 Aug 2022 18:33:00
All you need to know is Piers **** Morgan still slamming MA over PEA and he’s always wrong! Yes a quality player but MA made the right call imo! Then I read Tottenham to win title and Liverpool to finish out of top four and thought The Raver had had his ban overturned! Turns out it’s Gallas! And I’m the berk for clicking the bait VTH.

14.) 11 Aug 2022 19:58:50
Tottenham winning the title is both a funny thought in general and a terrify prospect for me personally on superstitious grounds.

Funny as in, as if, and scary as in
I'm 60 years old and it's never happened in my lifetime, the last time it did actually happen, allegedly according to legend, was the year before I was born and if ever Tottenham got close to winning the title with a couple of games to go, they would be a very nervous couple of weeks for me, or not, depending on the outcome of course ????.

15.) 11 Aug 2022 22:04:17
If I wanted my ex she wouldn’t be my ex! sounds a bit Josef Fritzl. How ever you keep em I guess, if you want her she stays if not she’s gone. Some boy Vodka my great great great grandfather would have loved you ?.

16.) 12 Aug 2022 07:36:42
Just a little saying auba I don’t actually keep them lo, Ed I’m always chilled, and always will be.

{Ed014's Note - in your words Mmmmmmm

17.) 12 Aug 2022 07:41:40
Sussex I don’t come here looking for bites mate, I had a work mate who used to to that for 8 hours straight, it’s really annoying, I come here for info to share some if I have any and to read everyone’s comments I have no Argument with any of you even if my comments come across that what I’m not that type of person have a great day everyone.

18.) 12 Aug 2022 08:30:28
Genuinely VM have no idea what you’re mentioning me for! My last two posts in this thread the first was aimed at Banbury’s original post the second a complete random post! Maybe I’ve read your post wrong and apologise if so but if you’re thinking I’m having a go at you a bit of advice - it’s not all about you! As you say have a great day VTH.

19.) 12 Aug 2022 08:08:06
Firstly, thank you 14! I knew you had feelings for me ?

VM, I am the epitome of chill. In fact, my wife is constantly annoyed because I'm always chill. Even when she feels I should be riled up, I'm chill.

With that out of the way, I'd like to point out that I'm not the one trying to stamp out conversations on here that don't interest me. You know why? Because it's easy enough for me to scroll past them to find something that does interest me. Ta Da! You can thank me later.


{Ed014's Note - you’re welcome Mr Sharp and I’m not made of wood! ??


20.) 12 Aug 2022 08:52:03
Sharpie the only reason your chilled, is because you’re always stoned


21.) 12 Aug 2022 10:33:49
I apologise Sussex no offence intended have a nice weekend.

22.) 12 Aug 2022 11:03:58
Thanks VM and no offence was taken! Too much offence is taken in the world these days in my opinion without me adding to it although Ed`s opinions on Tielemans are bordering on the offensive haha Have a great weekend! Come on boys 3 points v Leicester Jesus to open PL account VTH.

{Ed014's Note - #cheapshot! ???

23.) 12 Aug 2022 13:05:00
Sussex I’ve got a bet on him to score 5 in august hope he does. lol.

24.) 12 Aug 2022 17:28:39
What odds, VM?

14, I know you're not made of wood. Everyone knows you're not made of wood #yourebringingsexyback but you hide your feelings so well behind that poker face.

Mal, it's just herbs!


{Ed014's Note - ???



06 Aug 2022 08:22:38
Just how good did Saliba look, very tough place to make your debut . Jesus was electric in the first half especially.

Thought on anyone else coming this window?


1.) 06 Aug 2022 08:41:24
I’d like a winger that’s going to push Saka.

2.) 06 Aug 2022 09:19:51
And add CM to replace xhaka, Mal.

3.) 06 Aug 2022 10:05:58
I’m sorry Moe but I just don’t get all this Xhaka bashing
For me he was one of our best players last season and was great last night
I wouldn’t sell him, yes bring in another cm to create competition.

4.) 06 Aug 2022 11:14:51
Moussa Diaby is being discussed again today Oxford.
Mal I just don't like divers. I'd make it a straight red and it would soon stop. Bit harsh I know and perhaps people would be sent off wrongly but I just don't like the mindset that thinks cheating is OK.

5.) 06 Aug 2022 12:08:33
Correct Sally but imagine if Xhaka had got a second yellow and left us with 10 men ALL would be hammering Xhaka for the dive

Hypothetical I know but don’t put yourself in that position.

6.) 06 Aug 2022 12:11:53
Sally, as far as I know, last night's dive is an isolate event for Xhaka. Most people here have a long standing dislike of Xhaka, and rightly so. However, like Mal said, he has been one of our most improved players.

Having said that, I'd still like someone new to come in. In fact, if we were going to buy anyone from Liester, I'd prefer it to be Wilfred Ndidi.

7.) 06 Aug 2022 12:12:49
I meant Leicester, obviously!

8.) 06 Aug 2022 12:35:05
I totally agree Xhaka has been excellent recently and we are a different team when he doesn't play but. its the mindset I don't admire. Not just the diving, the playing innocent when he is obviously at fault etc etc. I like him as a person after listening to him talking on camera but this faultline in his personality makes me nervous. Saying all that, overall I think he is a plus for the team.

On another matter, how about a fan song for Saliba?

9.) 06 Aug 2022 13:46:40
he was excellent Saliba for his first game, just wonder what's going to happen when Tomiyasu is back fit will white drop to bench cause I think Saliba deserves to keep his place. Be excited to see what Fabio Vieira brings to the table once he is up and running too. Things look good atm, although Jesus keeping fit I think is key now. Another winger would not go a miss but a bit 50/ 50 on Teilmans tbh not sure he is needed but will add to depth so would be dissapointed if he signs.

10.) 06 Aug 2022 15:40:49
Just echoing echoing what everyone has said about Saliba. He will make mistakes but wow what a prospect. If Fofana has had a bid for £60 mill plus rejected how much is Saliba worth as he carried according to ED001 Fofana at St Etienne? And if Cucuella is worth £60 mil how much is Tierney worth? A couple of heart in mouth moments but also two great saves from Ramsdale particularly from Eze, points winning saves. Not getting carried away but very excited by the rest of the season. Also will be much stronger with KT and Tommy as full backs and Zinchenko will strengthen the midfield too. COYG Think we need a midfielder and definitely a forward who can play across the whole front.

{Ed001's Note - ah come on, Tierney is not in the same class as Cucurella, and he can't stay fit for more than half a season. Cucurella was the best left-sided player in Europe last season. Fantastic player.}

11.) 06 Aug 2022 16:23:51
Very impressed with saliba first time I’ve really seen him play… xhaka is a liability I was waiting for the second yellow to come any minute and drop us in it again… thought white and odegaard were shocking as well… but impressed with the resilience we showed in the 2nd half….

12.) 06 Aug 2022 16:09:10
Fair play Ed, Pep and Tuchel wanted him so what do I know. Red tinted spectacles regarding Sir Kieran I guess. Still KT is a very good player who does need to stay fit obviously. Didn`t realise Cucurella was that good. Saliba worth a fortune though COYG.

{Ed001's Note - Tierney is good, but Cucurella is top class and Barca made a huge mistake letting him go. Saliba is a brilliant player too.}

13.) 06 Aug 2022 16:41:37
KT is going down in value season on season not because of his ability but because he can’t stay fit, when we first signed him I posted on here how many months he’d been on the treatment table, nothings changed sadly.

14.) 06 Aug 2022 19:50:27
Mal, I was bashing xhaka and I agree with that he has improved and has the experience need it in the team, I wouldn't mind an upgrade or even a competition for him. My problem with him is he's got that idiotic moment which can leave us exposed and put us in trouble. He did a massive block last night and did fairly well but as Banbury said a second yellow could have us in trouble and you'd have questioned him.

15.) 06 Aug 2022 19:53:52
Wilfred, xhaka was shocking? How? He was up against one of the trickiest winger in the PL and did well to contain him.

{Ed014's Note - did you mean White?

16.) 07 Aug 2022 13:21:50
Yes I did Ed mate, sorry what was I thinking lldaying xhaka lol.

{Ed014's Note - hey no probs but now you’ve confused me again as I don’t know what you mean by lldaying ?‍♂️??

17.) 07 Aug 2022 16:50:52
How many times did white give the ball away when he had it that’s what I’m on about?

18.) 07 Aug 2022 22:51:48
Late to party again, but nice win on Friday.

Not sure I would continue to play White at rb he just hasn’t got the pace and you could see that was Crystal Palace’s game plan in the 2nd half to isolate him against Zaha.

In defence of Xhaka I don’t think it was an actual dive, but expectation and momentum to collide with the player, which never happened.



29 Jul 2022 11:25:44
So what will happen with TP - to leave the club for sure.


{Ed014's Note - if he’s the man, which most suspect he is, he’d need to firstly be charged with any offence then found guilty.

I read this morning that one of the three allegations had been dropped.

Obvs if it is him and the allegations are true and he’s convicted he’d be in prison and his employment terminated and rightly so.

There are also Twitter rumours but the word Twitter says all you need to know about the likelihood of those being true.

Ed I don’t know if it’s TP, but I’m sure edu has a plan in place

I’m expecting a class midfielder to come in, because we need one anyway.

{Ed014's Note - none of us really do but it looks pretty likely.

No idea of the veracity of the allegations either but if true he rightly be gone.

I’m hopeful of another mid too mate but just no idea who. Just not a Tielemens fan, bit to work shy for me whether he’s talented or not.

2.) 29 Jul 2022 12:25:54
The messages on Twitter look awful.

3.) 29 Jul 2022 16:38:10
If these allegations are proven to be true then whoever is guilty of these vile crimes Partey or not deserves to be locked away and not see the light of day until the victim is fully recovered mentally and physically and is happy to see them released.

Hideous crimes like this should result in the perpetrators serving at least the same length of sentence as the victims.

{Ed014's Note - totally agree 62, absolutely no sympathy from me if whoever it is is found guilty.

A hideous crime and far to many are getting away with it and those that don’t get far to lenient sentences for my liking.

4.) 29 Jul 2022 17:19:16
I'm really surprised we haven't suspended him whilst this is being investigated.

{Ed014's Note - to be honest I am and either it’s not him or they know something we don’t.

Do they also have a different mindset on this in the states as we have American owners.

The whole thing is odd especially if you look at someone like Mason Greenwood and what’s happened to him.

5.) 29 Jul 2022 17:54:51
Poor woman is getting abuse on Twitter. Seriously, when did the world collectively lose it's moral compass.

If TP is found guilty, he'll sadly not have to do even half as much time as he should.

{Ed014's Note - thankfully I don’t do Twitter for that exact reason, the morons out there can be counted in their millions!

Sadly that’s all to true mate.

On another note was so glad to hear today that the vile excuse for a human being had his appeal against his whole life sentence thrown out!

6.) 29 Jul 2022 18:07:21
It's heartbreaking to think of what these perpetrators take from their victims yet society deems it worthy of a lesser sentence than robbing a bank Ed014 mate.

Many victims of rape both female and male never ever recover fully, thankfully with the right support and understanding some are able to fully recover but sadly for many it's a life sentence of struggling with mental health difficulties, the perpetrators should get at least the same length of sentence the victims.

You are right Ed the rape conviction rate v allegations is horrendously small even when police are convinced of the accused is guilty and this needs to change immediately, personally I think a lie detector test results for both victim and accused should be part of all investigations as this speed things up in a crime where speed is vital to obtaining the proof of innocence or guilt apparently. God forebid I should ever be accused of such a thing but I would want and even demand a lie detector test in order to prove my innocence to everyone especially the no smoke without fire brigade as I think most innocent people would.

{Ed014's Note - I really don’t know what the answer is mate as it’s so often one word against another when there is a need to prove beyond reasonable doubt rather than the balance of probabilities.

Only 2 people know the truth and one of them will have to live with themself and their lies.

8.) 29 Jul 2022 19:57:31
Whatever is going on with people on twitter, I know there are some very strange and unwell people out there but it's difficult to imagine there really are so many sick people who want to cause harm and distress to someone they have never met, I think we have to remember an awful lot of posts on social media which are actually bots posting loads very similar alternative agenda posts within seconds of each other,

9.) 29 Jul 2022 20:03:14
Im presuming you referring to the messages that have been posted on Twitter Ox? i'm by no way saying it didn’t happen and she is lying. but messages especially through snapchat are so easy to make up due to them deleting them selves after said amount of time.

Just a few things i noticed on them was Partey’s reply mentioned about it being no different to her grabbing his junk when he didn’t want it.

So i'm sitting on the fence with this one, innocent until proven guilty and for me the club have done right by him, by letting him carry on at the club.

10.) 29 Jul 2022 20:40:35
I can't agree 93, any club, organisation or business worth its salt would put any employee accused of such an offence on gardening leave until things were resolved one way or the other, as Ed014 says above United did.

If innocent then this is an absolutely awful thing to be falsely accused of and I would have thought any innocent man would be far to preoccupied making sure he cleared his name to play football on the other side of things do you really want to see him in an Arsenal shirt representing our club if he is guilty? Could you actually bring yourself to sing his name or cheer a goal he scored knowing what questions are hanging over who he might be as human being?

If I was an Arsenal player in would want this resolved before I could look Partey in the eye and hold a genuine conversation with him, this is not a time to put your football loyalty before your human compassion 93 mate.

11.) 29 Jul 2022 21:06:09
Thankfully, I never use twitter or the like, but sadly I did when this story broke, which is why I found it was possibly TP involved. Subsequently it seems the accusations came from his partner, is that true?

That would be strange seeing as he recently changed religion so he could be married to her? Ultimately though, the law in the uk is clear, and thankfully you are innocent until proved guilty. Therefore there is absolutely no reason to suspend anyone based on an accusation, and in fact, it would potentially be damaging to the accused, as you appear to be siding with the accuser.

These accused crimes, when based on a single accusation, are virtually impossible to prosecute. There is never any physical evidence, and so it just becomes a she said/ he said, and from someone who has sadly completed two jury services, both of which involved sexual crimes, it’s very difficult to send someone down for a lot of years in prison (and in my case, label that man as a peadophile for the rest of his life) unless you have concrete evidence.

This concrete evidence is normally when two separate people come forward independently but tell similar stories. That’s when the CPS normally take the case forward. Let’s hope TP, if involved, is innocent.

More importantly, let’s hope I don’t get any more jury services, as I am still sadly traumatised from those two cases.

12.) 29 Jul 2022 21:40:10
It’s never easy - ask Ched Evans, not saying it’s always the case but these things are difficult especially when cash rich footballers are involved .

I’d have thought TP would have been suspended on pay until it’s over.

13.) 29 Jul 2022 22:36:44
I say suspend Epping because there is no way on this earth he can be committed with this going on, put him on garden leave until it’s resolved .

I have done to lots of jury service ironically both sexual cases, one rape and one grooming and trust me unless there is video evidence it’s virtually impossible to say guilty or not guilty .

14.) 29 Jul 2022 23:15:35
I just fear Banbury that to suspend him now would tarnish him long before any real evidence comes out. I think a leave of absence, if both parties agree, to allow TP to build his legal case, if required, would be an option, but to suspend someone, based on a single accusation, sets a dangerous precedent. Normally with these sort of cases, these people can’t help themselves, and act the same way over a number of years, and when one person finally comes forward, so do others. If this should happen with TP, then yes, like Greenwood or Mendy, we would have to suspend him immediately, but until then, I think we carry on until normal, until the CPS decide whether to proceed or not. Yes, both my cases involved grooming/ sex with a minor (stepdaughter in the first case) , but as you say, there is never any real evidence to back the accusations.

15.) 30 Jul 2022 08:00:46
It isn't a single accusation though. There's more than one person that he has brought a complaint against him.

16.) 30 Jul 2022 08:52:08
I understand what your saying g62 but, there was substantial, undeniable, video evidence against Mason Greenwood. This woman and i can only hope about her health if true, has posted messages that could be easily manipulated into what she wants out there.

Ched Evans nearly lost his career and life over false accusations, i'm sure when the truth comes out whatever the outcome is, the club will deal with it properly, we are The Arsenal after all!

{Ed001's Note - actually that is not true, Evans was guilty but the only dispute was what he was guilty of. When those acts are performed to a man, they are deemed as rape, but when it was a woman who suffered it the judge decided it was not rape. Evans is a piece of scum who deserves to rot in jail with his friends who all took turns in what any normal human would consider to be raping a young girl. There is nothing false about the accusations, just a judge who is an utter backward moron and should never be allowed to hold the position he does. I am sick of reading this lie that he was found innocent or that what he did was not vile and sickening.}

17.) 30 Jul 2022 10:17:19
Either way Ed Ched Evans was eventually found not guilty but lost 5 years of his life .

Sitting on a jury in these sort of cases is a nightmare, I still have no clue with my decisions were right.

{Ed001's Note - he deserved to lose all of it. He was still found guilty, just ridiculously of a lesser offence. Shame that slime that like pond life is now being defended on here, just because you are worried one of your own players might be the same. I wouldn't mind but he even admitted to having raped her in his own words, but it wasn't considered rape purely because she was comatose and so unable to say no. I can't believe any of you defend that scumbag and use him as an example of how these pricks are badly treated.}

18.) 30 Jul 2022 11:31:14
One of the things you realise when you do jury service, is what a horrible job being a policeman/ women actually is. I know it’s easy to bash the police force, as they don’t always help themselves, but they have to deal with society’s utter **** all day long, and so to expect each individual to be perfect all the time is utterly ridiculous. On top of that, society is stuffed full of people who have grown up never hearing the word no from their parents. This then becomes an issue at school, when they suddenly are told what they can or can’t do, and then as adults when coming across authority. Sadly it seems that many footballers fit this character, being chased by teams, supported by an agent, surrounded by cliques, getting whatever they want, and ultimately never hearing the word no. They then seem to assume this behaviour is acceptable all the time, including their right to procreate at any time of choosing and with anyone they deem suitable.

19.) 30 Jul 2022 11:31:27
Eh - I don’t give a flying f*%# about TP send him down down if guilty - you’ve clearly missed my earlier post where I said he should be suspended . I doubt very much anyone who admits to raping anyone gets £800k payout as compensation.

I’m not defending anyone I’ve clearly said sitting on a jury is so difficult to work out the truth.

{Ed001's Note - you have clearly not existed in the real world and seen the way women are treated in court with regard to rape claims. Ignorance like yours is why so many scum get away with it. I am not going to argue with someone so ignorant, it is so tedious when you have absolutely no idea but continue to shout your mouth off.}

20.) 30 Jul 2022 11:55:07
Innocent until proven guilty, if he’s done it let him rot in jail if he hasn’t then the women should rot in jail that’s my views on, personally I think the club know more that’s why they havnt suspended him, but we can’t label him when we don’t know what’s gone on but if he’s guilty he has to do the time if he’s innocent she should go down for a very very long time.

21.) 30 Jul 2022 12:38:09
Wait, so the judge ruled because she was comatose she couldn't say no?! That's so backwards! I always thought it was supposed to be the opposite way round, if you were comatose you obviously couldn't of consented! Some judges views are messed up! Like the one who didn't send Brock turner to jail, despite him definitely being guilty because he was a promising athlete and he didn't want to ruin his career ?.

22.) 30 Jul 2022 13:20:51
If it is Partey, how come he's allowed in the states on bail for a rape charge. Makes me think it ain't him, but who else could it be?

23.) 30 Jul 2022 13:34:55
Anyone remember Mathew Kelly being accused of sexual offences?

He immediately stopped work and went on live TV not only to deny the claims but to say he would make himself available to work tirelessly with the police in order for the truth to be established and clear his name.

Both in the cases of Matthew Kelly and Dave Jones the ex Southampton boss the judge made it very clear to everyone in his summing up of their cases that not only was they both totally innocent but in neither case was there any there any smoke or fire to be in any doubt about their total innocence.

Wouldn't every innocent person want that kind of public declaration of their inconvenience if they falsely had such an horrific claim made against them. Who could possibly concentrate on every else?

It's an horrific accusations because it's an horrifically sickening offence to commit against another human being.

He doesn’t hold back in some of the clips I’ve seen, it was good to see.

{Ed014's Note - ahh great, I’m looking forward to seeing it, I hope they give some kind of insight into the Auba saga too.

2.) 29 Jul 2022 10:33:05
I will definitely take a look mate, I'm always open to seeing things differently when new evidence emerges, I'm just not very good at being told what to think and believe when it goes against what I actually experience and see for myself.

They say seeing is believing so I will most definitely have a butchers with an open mind ???.

Ed2 is anti Arsenal 100% - for me it seems giving Arteta time was the right thing to do …. and I’m not saying we will be doing this that and the other but the recruitment this time around seems the best we’ve had . We have picked up 2 M City players who know the PL inside out so no settling in period and Saliba has settled very well and looks the part . I still think MA needs top 4 or the pressure is on but we aren’t far from having a very good side.
