Apparently City are surprised by the talk of us announcing Artetta as our manager when we haven't even spoken to them and agreed compensation.
Whatever has happened at Arsenal we used to be so prim and proper in how we conducted our business.


1.) 19 Dec 2019 11:17:19
This could be because the way they poached our players in the past. Pay back I guess.

2.) 19 Dec 2019 12:48:18
I doubt it but if so how old is josh 5?
City have well moved on from the Mark Hughes buy Arsenal days and have no interest in any of our players now days.
I'd incompetence was the more likely explanation than pay back.

I'm not sure if Emery can't or won't change his ways but either way it's plainly obvious his ways his methods his tactics just aren't working at premier league level.
What would be the point in continuing with Emery few more games or weeks! What is going to suddenly start working that hasn't worked upto this point in time?
9 points over 26 games isn't impossible to make up but neither will it be a formality for a new manager either.

There are absolutely no guarantees that if we change managers things will suddenly come good but there is a genuine possibility they might under a different manager that simply doesn't exist under Emery.

We have a squad that has the quality in abundance we just need someone who can organise and motivate them into a cohesive team that functions to its full potential.
There is no logical reason to carry on with Emery, I've read people saying the club don't want to pay his compensation money and would rather let him see out his contact to save what a £3 millions pay off?

But that's just people being negative towards the board because I'm sure Josh and Co are more than capable of working out the financial loss of champions league football money v £3 million in compensation without the need to consult the world's greatest mathematic brains first.


1.) 10 Nov 2019 13:24:20
As usual, nothing to disagree with from G62. I have little faith in the board to act decisively. They have a history of dithering and fiddling while the team burns on the pitch. As you said elsewhere, the only language they understand is empty terracing. I would rather listen to us lose on the radio, than freeze my arse off sitting at the Emirates.

I would love to be wrong, but those hoping for a sacking on Monday. I wouldn't hold my breath.

2.) 10 Nov 2019 15:08:24
Hi Urban mate I think you've got it bang on, vote with you bum if your not happy and spend your time doing something that does make you happy until the club team and manager give you reason to feel they are your best way of spending your time and money again.

3.) 10 Nov 2019 19:24:06
I just don’t know how emery is making Managing Arsenal look like a difficult job? This season I honestly couldn’t tell you what system we’re playing. Yes Wenger was dated, but you knew what you was getting. A team trying to play possession football until an opening presented itself. Against Leicester, we couldn’t even string 5 passes together. No one knew where each other are, we got strikers playing like wingers, playing so deep against a team that plays with 1 striker. Emery isn’t connected to his players and he’s not connected to the fans. Sack this tactical fraud, leave Freddie in charge til we can get a manager with a clear vision.

4.) 10 Nov 2019 19:43:08
It's true ice mate we have no identity no structure no Arsenal way of playing that the players can get they're heads around and become comfortable with and most importantly good at.
Every game a different starting 11 a different game plan a different formation what chance do our players have? And of course they are only human so are naturally becoming deflated and losing interest and motivation to simply indulge yet more nonsense.

5.) 11 Nov 2019 09:58:15
Icy, you are so right. It was embarrassing watching us play what amounted to a back five against a side with a lone striker. And Gunner, spot on about identity, we don't have one at all. We even had one under Graham, albeit based on grinding opponents down and a very flat back four with their hands up every five minutes. I watched Liverpool yesterday afternoon, and even with some (one) lucky breaks, they looked every bit the finished article where we look pedestrian. The worst of it is, our front three/ four are the measure of anything Liverpool have got. But the rest is disorganised, poorly deployed, and yes, lacking any kind of identity.

The papers (I know) are this morning reporting the boards confidence in Emery. If true, I'm not surprised. Of course, we don't want a trigger happy board, but one season, and a third of this one, is enough to know. It could be a long frustrating season.

6.) 11 Nov 2019 10:25:20
In a game that’s about numbers and statistics, I’d be curious to know which one Emery is impressing in, that’s keeping him in that seat.
Ed any inside news on what’s happening? I just can’t accept the board are content with him because under him, Speaking statistically, we won’t challenge top 4 and we don’t want to bank winning Europe when we can’t hold a clean sheet.

{Ed002's Note - It was a mistake brining him in and as I said he was far from first choice. The club has gambled financially on getting in to the top four come the end of the season, and that remains the primary target. It is difficult to see anything happening before the summer when I suspect there might well be a change.}

7.) 11 Nov 2019 10:54:47
The papers are all quoting Ormstein Urban mate so it's a highly credible that is the boards position.
I'm pinning my hopes on the board using Ormstein as a deflection tactic and going to surprise us all as they did when they let the papers run with the "we only had 40 million to spend" story all last summer then bosh! broke our transfer record :-) I know it's not a theory you'd want to put your house on being correct is it :-) ?
Like you said yesterday mate vote with your bum and if your not happy with what's being offered simply don't accept it and find a more enjoyable way of spending your time and money, 20,000 empty seats is an extremely difficult fans message to ignore for long.

8.) 12 Nov 2019 06:49:18
I'm with you 62 fingers crossed 🤞.



08 Aug 2019 08:37:02
Arsenal and Chelsea have agreed an 8 million fee for David Luiz and Tierney will complete his 25 million move today also.

Where's Wesley? Could be a very busy day for you Wes mate.




03 Jul 2019 19:57:15
126 million for a 19 year old who has made 26 first team appearances?
I think we forget about the Lacasette to Athloco rumours now:-)


1.) 04 Jul 2019 09:27:33
Who’s that mate.

2.) 04 Jul 2019 09:29:36
Sell him for 250 mil.

3.) 04 Jul 2019 19:39:16
Felix Welsh mate.



09 May 2019 21:17:34
I know this week has taught us it ain't over until it's over but Valencia now need 4 in the last 30 minutes plus stoppage time, even we can't throw this away, can we :-)

Huge shout for Harry Kane, absolutely brilliant gesture.


1.) 18 May 2020 08:55:49
Very true - good sports peop, e don’t grab headlines which is a shame.

To be fair, Ozil does quite a bit in this space.

2.) 18 May 2020 09:58:24
Mesut is brilliant humanitarian SY mate, what I like most is he doesn't see nationality or race he just sees people and does an awful lot of good in various places across the world and usaully does it quitely, although he's never afraid to speak up when he sees injustice or equally reason to celebrate harmony the good in the world too.



13 May 2020 13:41:08
So Norwich think it's unfair if the premier completes the season but the championship don't and they get relegated after finishing the season and Leeds get promoted without having to finish the season.
Prehaps Norwich would prefer both premier league and championship to call it as it stands and be relegated that way instead :-)
If they complete the season they have a chance if they don't complete the season they are doomed already so where is their logic?
It's terrible listening to so many clubs and fans all wanting to capitalise from a world virus in order to make up for their clubs own inefficiencies on the pitch.
They really do nothing but harm to the games image and sporting reputation.


1.) 14 May 2020 17:32:12
I would just promote Leeds and 2nd place in the championship with no relegation in the premier league, and have 4 or 5 teams relegated next season.

2.) 14 May 2020 19:07:30
I don't think there is a solution that all clubs could agree on Raver mate as they all seem only interested in what's best for them.
Acceptance that there is a worldwide virus and these are exceptional circumstances that only through compromise is any solution possible seems completely unacceptable to all involved unless things go their way.
Peterborough have said that any solution that is found which cost them a chance of promotion to the championship next season will be met with a law suit and I'm sure plenty of others will respond like wise should they miss out too.



11 May 2020 20:57:23
Just to be clear so everyone can stay alert
You and your other half can now drive to a beach 100 miles and sit two meters apart of 100s strangers for 7 or 8 hours but should you go to the local park and bump into members of your own family one of you or the wife must totally ignore the family and get as far away as possible as quickly as possible as must all but one of your family return the gesture by totally ignore you and run away as fast as possible from you :-)

Fills you with confidence to know that the same people coming up with these rules are running the country doesn't it :-)


1.) 11 May 2020 21:59:29
Think our defence has been doing social distancing for at least 5 years.

2.) 11 May 2020 22:15:57
It seems the country needs lots of lerts to stay Gunner so anything is possible 😉🌈.

3.) 14 May 2020 17:33:28
It will be hard in stringfellows to keep 2 metres apart, as the lapdancers always sit on my lap.

4.) 14 May 2020 21:17:30
You'll need to get a mask to go with the dirty old raincoat Raver mate, it's the only thing for it :-)



02 May 2020 13:47:30
Anyone looking for a sport to take up during lock down I highly recommend Fencing.
Gloves and mask built in and if anyone gets within 2 metres of you you've constantly got a nice long sword at hand to force them to retreat with.


1.) 02 May 2020 14:15:25
Also should you find lock down with your other half gets to much and you decide to kick them out, then Thursday night 8pm is the ideal time to do it as it will look like the whole Street supports your decision.

2.) 03 May 2020 10:42:59
Can’t do fencing G62, I’m allergic to creosote.

3.) 03 May 2020 13:14:19
Just put a nicotine patch on and make sure you do it on a really sunny day and you'll be fine Epping mate.

4.) 04 May 2020 17:34:45
Should do it like we do here in Sweden. Give a dirty look and hope they move away, does not work but it helps bringing the frowns out.

5.) 04 May 2020 22:27:25
That’s exactly what my wife always says G62, which is why she was fired from the family planning clinic.



03 Apr 2020 22:14:19
Spare a thought for poor Philip Scofieled, he finally decides to come out Just as the rest of the world stays in.


1.) 04 Apr 2020 06:29:17
Haha, John

I'm borrowing that one.

2.) 04 Apr 2020 12:39:28
Many couples are struggling to cope with being stuck in each others company 24/ 7 but my wife seems to love me more than ever, the other night I woke up to find she was covering my face with a pillow to keep me safe.

Saka has time on his side much like Rogers said to Sterling at Liverpool " the next contract will not be your most important contract "
For Auba it's the complete opposite as financially this will be his last big deal and ambition wise what he does next will decide if he is to have any chance of ever challenging for or winning a top prizes, obviously it's unlikely he will be able to achieve those things at Arsenal at his age and what left of his playing career.

I agree Marshall, giving players a reason to think next season will be better if they stick around is the key to keeping most players happy.
Auba is 29? He doesn't have forever left in the game so it's all about what he wants to achieve before he's past his best.
If he really wants a real chance of champions league or premier league medals then we can't realistically offer him either over the next 2 seasons or longer so it's in his interests to leave, if he wants superstar wages like some clubs pay those and shouldn't make the mistake of trying to again either so it's best he goes elsewhere if that was the case.
If he's happy to stick around on really excellent wages because he likes life at Arsenal and is prepared to help us be the best we can be then I'd be very very happy for him to stick around, but having said that do we actually need to start selling players while they havr real financial value rather than leave for free at some point?
It's a trickyone and maybe there is a case for cashing in on older players whole we can too.

Hi DG I'm not saying he doesn't want to leave, he may well do but what I am saying is the papers are merely picking up on Artetta answers and making a story from them, something Auba confirms with " why do the speak about what THEY don't KNOW anything about "! The popular media are Just blaggers who are blagging 99.9999% of the time but every now and then like everyone else get something right by the law of averages.
It's good news about Saka 16 mate that's for sure mate.

I'd have been well shocked if Saka had left 16 mate, I think Auba summed the popular media up brilliantly when he said " why do they speak about things they know nothing about "
Ever since Arteta was asked on Sunday how important Auba was it's been non stop from the tabloids claiming to have inside information about his future, Saka last week, Auba this week I'm Just waiting for the rumors to start about Martinelli wanting out because he's been left out for Eddie in the last 2 league games.

Oh cheers DG mate, in that case definitely let him run it down and see how it goes from there.
Agree Davy a natural DM with a real appreciation for stopping goal scoring chances happening has been missing for years, although alongside Caz Le Coq was doing a very good impression of one.

I think he's out of contract this summer mate so might want more than a 1 year deal to stay when he could potentially negotiate a really good deal somewhere else as free agent.
He has shown signs of improving under Arteta but I'm not sure enough to be offered more than 1 year deal right now.

Apart from one horrible game I thought Eboue was ok Jack, when people say a player had the game of their life where everything they did was spot on brilliant that day poor old Eboue showed it was possible to have the complete opposite game too.
Felt so sorry for him that game.

Wrong player for the wrong reasons, signing Pepe was meant to be a show of ambition and intent by then manager, Josh and pals but in reality it highlighted one and all were way out of thier depths.
