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 :-)

The Egyptian government have instructed the taxi drivers in Cairo to drive around the city sounding their horns to create a familiar sound to help people feel more calm in lockdown.

Operation " toot and calm em " has begun :-)

Terrible John

But what’s new😀.

5.) 23 Jan 2021 13:11:16
I know Mark 😂 but it made me laugh so I thought why not share the ❤.



02 Jan 2021 23:48:18
Does ERS just show how wrong it was to freeze out Ozil?
Having a number 10 to create chances again seems to have made all the difference and you have to wonder how different the first half of the season might have been had the behind the scenes interference and politics not been involved.


1.) 03 Jan 2021 08:29:03
I thought the idea was willian to play in that slot but he didn't even try it and left the spot empty which was MA biggest mistake.
I'm loving what ESR doing, I think this kid not getting enough credit.

2.) 03 Jan 2021 08:45:57
G69 please get over the Ozil scenario fgs, you oldies can’t leave things to lie 😂
We already have our club captain and top scorer moping around like a wet week in a thunderstorm and everyone without selective memory fade will remember that’s exactly how Ozil was before he was dropped!
More importantly if he were playing ESR wouldn’t have been given his chance to shine.

3.) 03 Jan 2021 09:45:06
Hi Moe and 377, ERS looks outstanding and i am really happy he is playing, he's an absolute pleasure to watch.
My point is not having a genuine number 10 we were creating zilch chances week after week after week despite having the king of assists on our pay roll.
ERS is the future and Mesut is definitely the past, I very ok with that.
I just hope the internal politics and back room vendettas don't show up again in the future to handicap the teams chances.

4.) 03 Jan 2021 11:34:24
Gunner - you are spot on. How you create with our midfield pea and Pepe on the wings with no No. 10 - who knows. Mikel thought he did but was 10000% so wrong. It was also a stupid decision to freeze him out. ESR won’t be able to keep this up all season - Ozil is past and very present but not the future. ESR could probably learn a lot from one of the best in the role even if a little past it now.

I don’t want to drop ESR for Ozil but we need back up and if Mustafi, Pepe and Willian are in the squad.

5.) 03 Jan 2021 14:02:04
These days either ESR in the team I don't miss ozil, we were crying for someone to create chances and that's the main reason we keep mentioning him.



24 Dec 2020 07:56:45
Merry Christmas to all the Eds and every single poster.

It's been a very tough year for every one of us regardless of what part of the world we live in and this site has definitely made a difficult time that little bit easier to get through.

I hope everyone enjoys the happiest and safest Christmas possible.


{Ed047's Note - Merry Christmas from us all too, hope you have a fab one 62 and that we have a much better 2021.

Stay safe!

1.) 24 Dec 2020 08:12:38
Same to you and your family John

Happy Christmas ed047 mate.

{Ed047's Note - and to you MG have a great one!



22 Dec 2020 23:16:26
Arteta ' our fixtures will decide our season "
NO sugar Sherlock!

The more a manager continues to talk gibberish the more sure you can be he simply doesn't know how to put right what's wrong.


1.) 23 Dec 2020 07:58:05
He also said if our slump continues we are in big trouble, too late mate .

We’ve been in trouble for weeks

What are the board thinking.

2.) 23 Dec 2020 08:01:05
Cant argue with that, team looks clueless.

3.) 23 Dec 2020 10:22:45
But Edu said Arteta was doing great and everything is rosy in the garden. One of you aren’t telling the truth lol.



19 Dec 2020 19:35:45
10 points from top 4 and 5 points from bottom 3. Have to avoid defeat v Chelsea and Brighton or we could go into 2021 in the drop zone, and getting out once in it might not be easy as some might think even with a different manager.


1.) 19 Dec 2020 19:51:42
Edu and MA must go, the team need a new faces in at the top to give them some sort of courage. Yes our midfield is awful and that need to be addressed on the first day of January. There is no way he can turn this season around at least bring in someone can take us through the EL.
Its very painful watching us play these days.

2.) 19 Dec 2020 20:03:22
Martinelli return is the only reason to watch in my opinion Moe.

3.) 19 Dec 2020 20:14:20
Go for the hattrick — Mikel, Edu and Kia.

4.) 19 Dec 2020 21:10:16
I seriously don't get what bloody Kia has to do with our club, he is a bloody agent right? So how on earth we have to listen to his opinion or look at just his players.

5.) 19 Dec 2020 21:11:34
Gunner mate, I love his energy, did you see how he kept running to open up spaces.

John Mcvicar wrote a book called the Rotten Orchard, inferring that some instructions are full of rotten apples.
That book keeps coming to mind when I think of our club right now.

Let's hope the two don't go hand in hand Fanatic mate, if we have to wait for Arsenal to become a top 4 team befor the virus disappears then we could definitely be in this for the long hual mate :-)

Hi Fanatic mate, yeah I think a lot of hope is pinned on the Oxford vaccine which can be stored and distributed more easily mate.

The thing I find crazy is why bring rules in and let people choose whether to follow them or not?
Imagine if some of us followed the law and drove on the left while others just did what they liked and varied it between right left and middle and depending what they felt like doing that day ?

My neighbours had a tier 4 party last night which started at bang on midnight and went on until 7am, lots of music lots of shouting and singing of " we got the power" lovely.
It's no mystery why we are in tier 4 or why the C.V. rate increased by 36% here last week, and with no one enforcing the rules we aren't likely to get out of tier 4 or even tougher restrictions until the spring when enough people have been vaccinated.

£5 SY?
Spare a thought for the poor old clubs who were reduced to paying under £100 million for players this summer, not to mention poor old billionaire owners of BT Sky and Virgin.

That's a fair comment D16 mate, we don't know the ins and outs of everything but we do know the effect it has on us as individuals and collectively.
If I am truthful there are players I would rather we didn't see play for us again as it's just no fun watching them play.

Pepe and Willian along with other failed signings are a good reason to do something other than watch Arsenal Moe
Saka ERS Martinelli Balogun Teirny are very good reasons to make time to watch the Arsenal.

Keep offering the same old boring stuff that's disappointed them so many times before and people will naturally not bother, but offer them something new and exciting and they will queue round the block for it.
