If Arsene is to leave come May as Wright has predicted would Arsenal have to make an announcement in advance like Man utd did with fergie.

{Ed025's Note - no mate..

What do u think about what wright said ed?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what IW has said.}


2.) 11 Feb 2017 00:27:02
He basically said that he spoke to arsene and gets the feeling that he will leave this season. Ed i checked the old posts and didn't find your opinion on the topic, can u repeat it please?

{Ed002's Note - I explained in the past couple of days that the club are making provisions for him to leave as planned this summer - but they would have liked another year out of him.}


3.) 11 Feb 2017 07:40:04
Am I right in thinking ManU had to announce it as they are on the New York Stock Exchange? I hope the Wenger contract is resolved swiftly either way at the end of the season to allow plenty of prep time in the summer.


4.) 11 Feb 2017 09:24:28
Was a listed company I believe. UTD would have needed to declare things in line with exchange rules.


5.) 11 Feb 2017 07:56:47
I can't believe he's actually going to go. Ed i'm sorry i really don't know how to use this website but can u tell me the list of candidates plz. It will be the last question because i know u hate repeating urself.

{Ed002's Note - The problem is that evrytime I have explained what has happened so far and what the options might be the vegetables come out of the woodwork and wreck it for everyone. I have explained previously that approaches have been made to two people and that the first told a third party acting on behalf of the club that he would not welcome an approach. The second is Allegri as I have explained.}

Apex, towards the top of the page is a search box. Simply type Ed002 into it and it will bring up anything Ed002 has responded to. You can then scroll down and view all the nuggets of wisdom.


7.) 12 Feb 2017 16:36:55
I think we need to stick to our guns keep faith in Wenger. I hope he signs another 2 year contract. We have been in a very dark place. We are coming through and can see the light but let us not abandon our leader.

Think we need follow in Man U fans footsteps show the kronkes we mean business. They need to sell up. Well done to united fans. Kronke n co out.

1.) 02 May 2021 16:03:11
If United and Liverpool keep the protests up and we let ours slip away, we will only have ourselves to blame if they get football friendly owners and we don't.

Working together the fans and the consortium have a real chance of success in my opinion.


2.) 02 May 2021 17:32:34
There will be no protests like the ones at old Trafford. Let the owners know no matter what the clubs are ours. The fans. And if your not one of us f o to your money making world.


3.) 02 May 2021 17:40:43
I don't want to see protest the same as at old Trafford G4, it's really important to not damage anyone or anything.

Peaceful protest and most importantly protest with your money, don't spend with the Kronkee's or the Krankee's eirther come to that.


4.) 02 May 2021 17:53:22
It’s exactly what we need nobody got hurt message got sent glaziers will sell up b4 kronke.

What's everyone moaning about as I see it champions league is being replaced with super league. I have not followed the ins and outs or looked into it but just going by rumours and banter can't see it being much different from what we have at the moment please if anyone can explain the new setup and the consequences of it I would greatly appreciate. Confused Gunner.

gunns4ever

{Ed002's Note - The Champions League is not being replaced taht is a UEFA competition. Probably on Friday, Arsenal and all Arsenal registered players will be expelled from all FIFA and UEFA competitions, Champions League, Europa League, probably including this season, World Cup, EUROs etc.. There is a strong chance that The FA and the Premier League will exclude Arsenal from all domestic League and Cup competition. Still confused?}


1.) 19 Apr 2021 18:22:15
Thank u for the reply Ed. Really sorry about the stupid question I have zero knowledge about this. So if it’s an extra competition surely that’s better for the spectator we get to see our teams play more games. I can understand more games means injured/ tired players but would a bigger squad not resolve that.

{Ed014's Note - no offence mate but did you read what ed02 just said?

There will be no extra games, we’ll be in one competition, this half baked Super League and expelled from everything else!


2.) 19 Apr 2021 18:23:39
I wouid like to see everything you say in your reply happen for all the clubs involved Ed002.

{Ed014's Note - there is every chance it will mate


3.) 19 Apr 2021 18:47:15
Confession: I'm a Canadian.

In addition to the glorious football that Arsenal was playing when I first became interested in the sport (98-2000) , I was drawn to the structure of the league, that punished poor results with relegation and promoted worthy teams. It seemed to me that football had a meritocracy. Between the mobility in the leagues, and the glory of the FA cup, it really seemed like a well run club could offer big surprises.

I was a bit naive, and of course the Chelsea money, Glazer management, the City money, all of it was distasteful. At least there were the years where we punched above our weight, developing players and playing entertaining football. And then great moments like, frankly, Leicester (even though we should have won that year, if we had our heads screwed on properly) .

All of that seems out the window. This is just too much for me. Too corporate. Too greedy. The product will ultimately be boring. If you can't appreciate the joy of wondering if Bolton are going to do us again at the Reebok, then you've missed what makes football so great.

I'll always love that back heel against Charlton and Pires and Viera at WHL in 2004. But at this point, the appeal is fading fast. I would much rather go and support a local side than something as disingenuous as whatever this mess will be.


4.) 19 Apr 2021 19:06:52
It's a job to see what we know as Arsenal Football club can continue to exist Ed014 mate.

I doubt there will be any kind of climb down or back tracking from the clubs involved so unless we reform under a different form of Arsenal at a new stadium, this looks like it!

Wow after all these years.

{Ed014's Note - it’s an incredible situation that we’re in mate. The fallout could be enormous.

I really don’t want to believe it will happen.


5.) 19 Apr 2021 19:19:25
It’s greed from all, but I still can’t believe owners of all these clubs have been conned by Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Let them both fall into their mountain of debt, at least you won’t get their president’s elect shamelessly naming targets from other clubs that they will “get” if elected.


6.) 19 Apr 2021 19:30:19
In truth I never thought it would happen Ed014 mate, but it turns out that traditional European football fans who have been brought up on the game being competitive passionate and full of romance and dreams are easily replaced by fans from further a field with less demanding requirements and who are happy to watch what amounts to exhibition games.

It's all about what you've become accustomed to I guess and we've been brought up to think the mighty can fall and the little guy can win.

{Ed014's Note - I feel there is going to be a stand off of sorts to see who backs down first and I’m hoping the backlash from it all will force the Glazers, Henry’s and Kroenke’s to blink first mate.


7.) 19 Apr 2021 19:43:40
Hi fellows, not ranting or having a go on anyone on here but just my general perception of the matter.

I don't understand why everyone is screaming all of a sudden. This has been rumoured for sometime, albeit not things proposed materialised.

Wasn't it some form of breakaway that formed the EPL or am I mistaken?

How can the government stop this and claimed to be democratic?
How could one then critique China?
Isn't the Champions League already an elite league - some of these clubs are already being paid for their legacy.

Football has long been about money. If the players of these teams are banned will they take a moral stands and refuse a lucrative salary? We have seen many of them move to China and the UAE. We have seen talent players rejected their country of birth to play for their adapted country for fame money and glory.

These clubs are already multi-nationals and they are the ones generating most of the money in the leagues. This is capitalism at its height and it is the system implemented by our governments. Overseas fans are paying more than locals already.

Sudden everyone is a socialist.


8.) 19 Apr 2021 20:26:45
I see your point of view Yard but it's nothing like the current champions league because there is no qualification needed or threat of losing out through under achievement.

Extrene capitalism in over drive it certainly is, it's all about money and all else is irrelevant, this has nothing to do with sport, it's unashamedly business with no room for personal feelings compassion romance passion.

Football has long been heading this way, it's just suddenly gone from a steady jog and broken into a sprint finish.

I genuinely hope proper competitive football will survive this and come out better for it and once again human atrocities won't be overlooked in the name of a financially successful world cup in places like Qatar.


9.) 19 Apr 2021 21:03:40
Yard - I 100% see your point and the other greedy football bodies are concerned that their wealth diminishes. You are spot on about EPL and I have to think it’s a compromise there with money and relegations. Let’s be honest - the champions league generally has the same teams playing but the beauty of the game in UEFA / EL and EPL - anyone can shake it up like a Leicester or Blackburn or similar e amp, Es who shake up the quarter / semi finals in Europe. It’s a competition and that starts with entry and competing once you qualify.

I can’t stand the idea of this league and sure it will only benefit the owners and the players. I do think the league stages of champions league and you can’t play a team from your own country is bollox also. It’s all about money to the detriment of the game.

Unfortunately unless the associations grow a pair and ban us from EL, ban U. K. clubs from this year uefa final then Super league will win.

Grow some balls and ban them from the cups now or shut up

Players - boycott if you want to play in fa cup / EL etc or do you just want to confirm you get more money. Stand up for something

Fans - stand up as we are their punters for the super league

Super league has a point - why should Brighton get same tv money as Liverpool. Load of socialist crap that put us in this mess.

Someone stand up or shut up - bring back uefa knock out competition for the champ league, tie revenue to interest in watching the club on tv, do something or risk Super league.

Current system doesn’t work for the big boys and I agree ( shoot me)

New system is too favourable for big boys and is a sterile football world.

Someone please present a decent 3rd option - epl has been fuelled by money, as have the influx of ill gotten money for CFC and City - we played either devil and now we pay.

How I miss the old days. Arsenal were never financially competitive but we had class on the pitch and off the pitch. I remember Winning against the blades and offering to replay them I remember hardly hearing of a player and then finding out wenger had unearthed another superstar and now realising how important david deins role was in that. I remember how other clubs used to look up to us in the way we conducted our business our players being grateful for the opportunity to play with our badge on. How our manager nurtured the players and made them feel part of our family. I remember Wengers words when he tried to explain why it was not in the clubs interest to offer long term contracts to players reaching the final stage of their football playing professionally and only now understanding this. oh how I miss those days even when we didn't win we could hold our heads up and say maybe on another day but we had a good game. How to we get those days and our name back.

gunns4ever

1.) 17 Dec 2020 08:56:36
Those are the days and philosophy that set the standards.

Today, we are a mess.

Yesteryear, we were held up as a model for others - unfortunately they copied diets, scouting, training etc etc while we stood still and recently regressed into a shambles.

Players are annoyed - acccording to The Athletic one of the biggest gripes of some is how certain players are perceived to be treated differently to others by the Spaniard. They claim one clear example of this is when summer signing Willian was permitted to start the game against Leeds United last month despite only days before taking an unauthorised trip to Dubai.

This was one of Arteta’s fulcrums. If you compromise there you have serious trouble.

Petit is right - Speaking to Paddy Power, he said: "David Luiz hasn’t been a proper footballer for about three years.

"But I’m not surprised that he has been given a new contract at Arsenal, because I’ve been very disappointed in relation to the club’s activity in the transfer market. To be honest, it’s a joke. Find some proper defenders. Are you telling me there are no young talented defenders on the market? I just don’t get it. ”

"Does anyone think the Arsenal executives and directors know what they’re doing on the football side of things? "For the last few years they have been splashing out on the transfer market – and have brought in some decent players – but I don’t know what their target or project for the future is. "

Back to your point - our manager is weak and compromised in his values and the board is useless. Hence we are the polar opposite of the club we all fondly remember from years ago.

Can you remember the speed of attack - seaman catches a cross ( yep Leno catches it) , quick roll out to Ashley or Pires and within 14 seconds we would be having a shot on target from Henry.

Can you remember the Henry and DB10 partnership or Petit and Vieira or our two wingers in Pires and Freddie or Overmars

The finding of Anelka or Cesc or Vieira or Ade etc

Yes there were a few duds but those memories are what drive me crazy about our club today and the so called standards we’ve allowed the fans and club to expect.

Ask Jens what he thinks or Petit. My money is on most ex gunners can’t stand or believe how poor we are from top to bottom

Pundits, ex players, fans can see what’s wrong - why can’t Arteta, Edu and the board.

Thanks for the beautiful memory and post. Hopefully anyone who is perceived to be moaning about Arteta can be a little better understood when you think of the standards we used to set.

Also, give him time? How many of you are managers at work. Are you expected to drive improvement from day 1 or day 600?. This weak mentality is driven by that very important expectation in my book. Set the bar high, be prepared to fail and be honest in your failings so you can eventually succeed. If you set the bar so low, that’s all you will achieve .

Have a fun day and sorry for doom post.


2.) 17 Dec 2020 13:34:28
Great post SY.


3.) 17 Dec 2020 18:25:50
The pundits repeatedly highlighted our weaknesses under Arsene but years and years past but nothing changed, groundhog day became our trademark.

Emery refused to drop his philosophies despite them repeatedly failing and now Arteta is following both his most recent predessors with a Margaret Thatcher " the lady is not for turning " mentality.


4.) 17 Dec 2020 18:32:26
That’s a really nice post mate

My feeling is the entire game has changed not just our club. It seemed to start when players started to believe they are bigger than their clubs, and the clubs backed them up by paying them extortionate amounts of money

It’s no longer a gentlemanly sport unfortunately, the majority of the players out there don’t really care about us fans or the badge on their shirt any more, it’s sad, very sad.

I have been watching this site for a long time and its a great laugh. there was one poster MissArsenal awhile back who sometimes used to give some good information. what's ahappend to her.

My view on this saga is that Wenger is employed by the club and is loyal to them and us fans. Our biggest loss in the last 8 years is that of David Dein, and we all know he left because he was not being provided with financial power to compete in the market.

All those that keep calling for wengers head should remember this.

{Ed022's Note - She gave me false information so I killed her and she's now in a shallow grave outside the M4...}

gunns4ever

1.) Ed022 you have to lighten up man, have you thought about counselling or is it just the "bendtner" news has turned you into a homicidal maniac?


2.) Lol that's why we keep getting naf information thank you edd022.


3.) Apparently she moved to the USA.


4.) "She gave me false information so I killed her"

Watch yourself Malaga, mate

Hello guys hope you are all well. Not been on in a long time. We need to hold the owners responsible. I still remember when David Dean left and the reason he left was the owners where not right to keep us competitive.

what we really need is new owners who share our interest and passion you get rid of Arteta and they will bring in Big Sam, I don't want that i don't think anyone else does either. I never wanted Arteta but once he became manager we have to get behind him he does not have the experience we like but for me he has not done much wrong. And if we don't have cut throat owners who will sack any manager for a wrong decision and replace him with someone better i'm Arteta in and Kronke out.

I don’t think this season we would have got far in champions league. I think next season we will be a different beast. We won’t be in champions league or europa the only option will be to get top four the board will prioritise it and if we fail will/ should take action at the earliest opportunity and that would be christmas.
