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 only thing in footbal more enjoyable than Manchester United losing is Arsenal winning. Up the Palace.




16 Sep 2020 16:33:40
Really hope Spurs don't get Gareth Bale. It would be great to see him back in the premier league as he's a very top quality player who would make neutral games more interesting to watch as he would definitely improve any squad he joined, but not Spurs! They are just fine as they are and he could complely jeopardise there chances of finishing outside the top 8 as they look more than capable of without him sticking his nose in where it's not wanted, well I don't want it and that's what matters.
The stop the high speed Bale link campaign starts here!


1.) 16 Sep 2020 16:57:55
He's coming home gunner, Regullion signed from Real Madrid today and apparently we are going for big names in the next 2 weeks, all the moaning the raver has been doing looks like levy has listened mate😁.

2.) 16 Sep 2020 17:40:03
Bale is washed up now, won’t handle the pace of the EPL you’re welcome to him.

3.) 16 Sep 2020 18:16:36
Bouncer, it don’t matter who you sign, you’ll still play slow crappie football under the gimp.

4.) 16 Sep 2020 18:31:21
They said that about Tony Christie 773 but then in 2005 boom! And He's Back! Suddenly the whole country is singing Amarrilo once again, both young and old, whether they want to or not!
You've been warned! Join the Stop the Bale to Spurs campaign Now!

5.) 16 Sep 2020 19:03:40
How’s the job going John?

6.) 16 Sep 2020 19:32:30
It's not happening Raver, the Ban The Bale campaign will put a stop to it mate.
Spurs and Jose are heading nowhere together completely naturally and Bale will just spoil everything!
Forget about a no deal Brexit the no Bale to Spurs campaign is far far more important.

7.) 16 Sep 2020 20:20:05
Hi Mark it's unbelievably brilliant thank you mate, my manager and area manger are fantastic, really supportive and patient and I couldn't ask for better fellow team members to work with, everyone is so genuinely nice and willing to help you in any way they can and very very patient, my IT skills are most definitely non league level at best but everyone is happy to show me the sane old things over and over until I finally get it, did I mention how patient everyone is? :-) and on top of all that we get to try and help people who aren't currently in the best place get back to a happier more enjoyable place.
I've fallen so so lucky mate and I'm really excited about what I do and what we all collectively do our best to achieve for those who just need a little bit of help at this moment in time.

8.) 16 Sep 2020 20:34:17
Great news 62 - glad you are enjoying your new job and it’s adding to society. Very happy for you

Glen - didn’t you start a new role. are we too happy gooners for 2?

9.) 16 Sep 2020 20:58:46
Great to hear it’s going well G62.

10.) 16 Sep 2020 21:20:23
Thank you SY mate, I'm so lucky, happy and very grateful mate.

{Ed047's Note - great news 62 and believe it not I too am changing jobs next month. It’s all going on in here lately on the job front.

We just need to find new jobs for Özil, Guendouzi and a few others and happy happy days! 🤣

11.) 16 Sep 2020 21:33:03
Feck me John, I was expecting a 4 word reply not a 2 paragraph reply! . Lol

Glad your ok son.

12.) 16 Sep 2020 22:03:51
Sorry Mark I get a bit excitable :-)

13.) 16 Sep 2020 21:49:20
Thank you Epping, I really appreciate that mate and i appreciate all yours and everyones else's support leading up to my interview, it really does mean a lot to me.

That's brilliant news Ed047 congratulations mate, What you going to be doing?

{Ed047's Note - contracts manager at Arsenal mate! 🤣🤣

14.) 16 Sep 2020 22:50:31
Nice one Ed047 mate, that means you'll have loads of spare time to edit this page from now on then. How difficult can Arsenal contracts manager be?
What do you want?
Um, ah, ok here it is! Job done :-)

{Ed047's Note - it would be great to know what crazy demands some of these players and their agents make. I’d bet we’d be astounded!

15.) 16 Sep 2020 23:27:48
Personally I'd listen to their demands then say ok let's just pop and explain to the fans who are hospital porters or carers and who earn 20k a year if thier lucky why they have to pay more to watch you next season and if you can convince them your current 4 million a year isn't good enough then I'll give you what you want! I wonder how many would really have the nerve to meet the fans face to face and justify their demands mate?



11 Sep 2020 07:52:36
The annual poll of every BBC pundits top 4 predictions are released.
Good old Wrighty has tipped us for 4th while Joleon Lescott has us down as 3rd, but unfortunately none of the rest fancy us to make a champions league qualifying return this time round.
Chris Waddle thinks Manchester United will win the league? I wonder if he wants to buy tower bridge from me :-)


1.) 11 Sep 2020 08:21:43
John I keep saying we will be the surprise package this season.

I’m going to have a bet on us to win the league.

2.) 11 Sep 2020 08:45:05
Fair enough Mark mate, oh I just had a thought, your not in the market to buy a bridge by any chance are you Mark? :-)

3.) 11 Sep 2020 08:48:22
Haha mate. Funny you say bridge, I watched A Bridge to Far last night.

4.) 11 Sep 2020 08:58:20
Malaga if we get auour and partey we will be a massive surprise. Although that seems unlikely the club are trying to do both.

5.) 11 Sep 2020 09:09:51
Absolutely brilliant thene tune to that film mate! I've never quite been sure why but I love it.

6.) 11 Sep 2020 09:25:47
Personally I've no real idea where this season will go for us but I'm hoping this time next year we will be able to tip the Arsenal for a really good season with genuine confidence. If our defence isn't a major negative talking point this season in my book that would be outstanding progress as I can't remember the last season neither we or the pundits were talking about our defensive failings for most part of a season.



31 Aug 2020 20:03:59
Good luck to Spurs as they travel to Bulgaria in the hopes of qualifying for this seasons Europa league, they must feel like Billericay in the fa cup last preliminary round! Just 1 game away from making the first round proper and going in the hat with the big clubs.


1.) 01 Sep 2020 10:37:32
Lets hope Arsenal can win their 2nd European major in their history😁.

2.) 01 Sep 2020 19:43:45
Yes! You're so right Raver!

It was good for us to stretch the legs against Chelsea and Liverpool to be fair. I'm presuming you don't remember what winning the FA cup or sharing the charity shield was like as it was just under 30 years ago for you I think? but it's definitely losing a little of it's appeal for us now tbh.

I know we've won the league 6 times since you last did 60 years ago, so would seem a bit greedy if Arteta went and got that! I do think it's about time we turned attention to Europe though. Thanks :)



29 Aug 2020 18:46:46
So Arsenal have won more trophies in August 2020 than Spurs have won in the last 20 years!


{Ed047's Note - love it mate! 🤣

1.) 29 Aug 2020 18:52:45
Well done on the pre season friendly shield mate🤣😂🤣 you know you will finish behind us yet again this season, let's hope you are aiming higher than 8th this year.

{Ed047's Note - congrats on getting Joe Hart too mate, quality.

2.) 29 Aug 2020 19:11:17
29 years since you was in the charity shield

3.) 29 Aug 2020 19:14:02
Hi Raver mate I agree it's not even a proper trophy, but what would it mean to Spurs just to even be involved in the community shield let alone lift the actual trophy itself?
Well I guess it's Just one life's questions we'll never ever get to know the answer to, frustrating isn't it :-)

4.) 29 Aug 2020 19:19:20
I do like the way you say “ yet again “ Rav.

5.) 29 Aug 2020 19:32:43
We've won two trophies in 29 days. You've won 2 in 29 years 😂.

6.) 29 Aug 2020 19:39:49
Love that gunner, over put it on the spurs page, great stat.

7.) 29 Aug 2020 20:05:05
Charity shield is not even registered as a trophy, I'm a betting man and I will put my Subaru on that you will get smashed by Liverpool when it matters in the league very soon, as for yet again its so true you can't beat us or finish above us every season.

{Ed047's Note - raver you’re a top bloke and I know you give as good as you get but you boys have really gotta win something more than the “we finished above Arsenal” trophy. 😉

8.) 29 Aug 2020 20:06:12
Involved in the charity shield final gunner we got to the champions league final last year mate 😂🤣😂.

{Ed047's Note - annnnddd lost! 🤦‍♂️

9.) 29 Aug 2020 20:40:50
Yeah I know Raver mate I remember it well! We did that our selves years ago, not nice losing in the final is it?
Mind you that's all in the past now, well it is for us anyway :-)

10.) 29 Aug 2020 20:43:30
Fully agree with you ED we have to win something than finishing above Arsenal trophy as i'm not into that myself mate, fair play to Arsenal they have poor league and European campaigns but lift FA cups come May most season, aubameyang is key to them if he stays they will kick on if he leaves then its another matter.

{Ed047's Note - I think he’ll stay mate but you just never no.

11.) 29 Aug 2020 20:54:50
You do half chat some rubbish raver mate 😂.

12.) 29 Aug 2020 21:37:43
What rubbish what I said above is absolutely spot on, you have been poor in the league and in Europe and aubameyang is key for you.

13.) 29 Aug 2020 22:39:14
We even had to change our colours because there's no other team in North London who are capable of winning trophies in white 🤭😂.

{Ed047's Note - 🤣🤣

14.) 30 Aug 2020 00:06:02
Raver - aim for 8th? Spurs finishing above us? Do you really think your team can get 7th? Aim high buddy!

Is he still playing? We were linked with him back in 2014 because he's Mesuts mate, he must be in his 50s now? So yes it's a possibility 😀.

So far Mikel has shown both the awareness and the ambition to tackle our most notorious of weakness, our awful inability to limit the oppositions scoring chances.

Both previous managers preferred to pretty much ignore the problems and concentrate on our strengths by adopting a win 5 3 philosophy.

Mikel has already set about solving the CBs problem and I'm sure he's working on the DM problem too, whether that's getting someone in if possible or trying to resolve with what he already has available to him on a temporary or permanent basis.

It was an early morning post Sharpie and I wasn't totally with it (well even less with it than normal) .
I mean, as if I'd swap my gorgeous motor for Car boot sale venue!
But I'd definitely swap Guendozi for Kante, in fact I'd drive Guendozi to the bridge in my hansom stead and bring Kante back too, mind you they'd have to agree to sit still and not touch any buttons or eat or drink anything on the way.

Kante for Guendozi? Really? Wow!
While Chelsea are in that frame of mind I wonder if they'd be interested in swapping my 14 year old car for Stamford Bridge? If this story turned out to be true I will definitely be asking them the question :-)

Hi SY I've been banging on for years about us getting a quality DM mate so of course I'd love to see it happen mate, but I'm a realist and we are having trouble raising funds from selling players plus I've not heard anything about Partey actually saying he the person, the human being would like to to swap Spain for England or Madrid for London or swap champions league with Athletico to join Arsenal in the Europa league. I'm just saying it's not as simple Arsenal not getting thier finger out mate.
