The local police have put out an appeal to the local community asking if everyone could please not commit a crime between 8pm and 11pm this evening.

Someone has replied saying
It's a deal and could you lot refraine nicking anyone from 6am to 6pm tomorrow.

Love it ๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†.

Apparently there is a new bidder for taking over at Arsenal and she is able to offer The Kronkee's something money can't buy in oder to take control of the club.

The lady in question is probably the most famous Arsenal fan on earth and is prepared to offer Stan her extensive and prestigious London home in exchange for full control of Arsenal.

Not only is she a life long gooner also her grandson is too, and it's her grandson she wishes to run the club as he has suddenly found himself at a lose end and she feels running Arsenal will be a positive way of keeping him occupied plus she hopes it might encourage him and his family to return to the UK to live and unite the family which has been going through a bit of a difficult period lately.

No this rumour is not from the usual tabloid media and I didn't read it on twitter or Facebook, it was written in my tealeafs this morning and compared to most media outlets the teanleafs have a pretty good success rate.

Oh and if the deal goes ahead Stan is going to demolish Buck house and build a Walmart.

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 ยฃ3 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 ยฃ3 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 donโ€™t know how emery is making Managing Arsenal look like a difficult job? This season I honestly couldnโ€™t tell you what system weโ€™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 couldnโ€™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 isnโ€™t connected to his players and heโ€™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 thatโ€™s about numbers and statistics, Iโ€™d be curious to know which one Emery is impressing in, thatโ€™s keeping him in that seat.
Ed any inside news on whatโ€™s happening? I just canโ€™t accept the board are content with him because under him, Speaking statistically, we wonโ€™t challenge top 4 and we donโ€™t want to bank winning Europe when we canโ€™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 ๐Ÿคž.



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.

2 minutes Luke Shaw and it's having for home.

Italy cannot be this tactically poor for the whole game and will have their spell, but itโ€™s Englandโ€™s to lose.

2.) 11 Jul 2021 21:16:15
They are looking better in opening minutes of second half as you stated.

3.) 11 Jul 2021 21:17:13
We need to be braver without the ball and commit Kane and Sterling up top to catch them on break.



11 Jul 2021 12:04:29
8 hours to kick off

It's the final countdown ๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’.


1.) 11 Jul 2021 12:06:51
8 hours till the Azzurri give you a good beating.

2.) 11 Jul 2021 13:32:03
Maybe mate maybe, who you supporting next season Juve or Milan? ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜….

3.) 11 Jul 2021 13:43:18
John I am supporting the birth place of my father

Yes you got it, I am half Italian

Maybe not the good half.

4.) 11 Jul 2021 14:01:33
Then I totally respect that of course Mark, enjoy the game.

5.) 11 Jul 2021 16:30:19
John, the 2 best teams are in the final, letโ€™s see what happens

Letโ€™s hope the England fans are respectful
There was no need to let of fireworks at the Italian team hotel at 2 in the morning

A good clean fair fight please.

6.) 11 Jul 2021 17:03:12
What can you do mate, no country or club is responsible for the action of a handful of idiots who are associated with it.

If it was down to me personally I would like to see England fans respect and be silent through the Italian anthem and respect and if not applaud the England players personal choice to take a knee

But some people will definitely boo the Italian anthem and boo their own players directly before kick off, what can you do? Luckily for me I'm not responsible for them only myself and my own actions ๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’.



07 Jul 2021 22:44:19
Never thought I'd see this day, so emotional!
Can't actually believe it's happend



1.) 07 Jul 2021 22:55:52
Never to be forgotten Gunner :)

2.) 07 Jul 2021 22:57:40
Canโ€™t wait for Sunday however Iโ€™m really looking forward to the buzz between now and the final. I love this feel good factor, spring in peopleโ€™s step and the best way to come out of lockdown / C.V. environment.

Makes me miss the great Wenger years

Anyway - stay in the present and enjoy the build up.

3.) 07 Jul 2021 23:26:47
Sally, SY, how lucky are we to be around at this time, especially after the last 17 months to see and share this moment in time.

Lucky lucky people๐Ÿ–’.

4.) 08 Jul 2021 00:07:20
To have seen the golden Wenger years and this - once in a lifetime mate., itโ€™s so so special. Youngsters wonโ€™t realise until years from now.

I remember Paul Allen being the youngest West Ham player to play in an fa cup final and him saying he didnโ€™t realise how once in a lifetime a game is like that because you got it so young.

Breath it in and enjoy it because it could be a while before it happens again. Hope it happens in the World Cup for Rngksnd but in the meantime - enjoy and appreciate the moment.

Sh-t I sound old ๐Ÿ˜‚.



07 Jul 2021 18:25:19
Getting more and more excited the closer the game gets

Come on England! This time, more than other time, this time!

Three lions of date with destiny


1.) 07 Jul 2021 19:51:11
Wrighty is such a fan, Keane and Neville are in full pundit mode while Wrighty can't stop looking at and listening to the fans soaking up the atmosphere.
How could anyone not love Ian Wright.

2.) 07 Jul 2021 20:08:37
Ian Wright Wright Wright - loved him shouting out of the Highbury dressing room window to fans

He just loves the game and the emotions of being a fan.



03 Jul 2021 22:12:17
Fantastic job dune by Southgate, no I am not suggesting he should be our City's or Liverpools next manager but he has put a very well organised team together that most importantly appears to be ego free where it's all about the collective team effort and achievement and not all about a handful of non performing so called superstars who live 100% of club reputation and qualifying performances against much weaker opponents but disappeared on the big stage.

Excellent job.


1.) 03 Jul 2021 23:28:20
Heโ€™s done terrific and created such a good team spirit

Fingers crossed for Wednesday.

2.) 04 Jul 2021 00:11:38
Spot on - not his biggest fan nor love the way they always play but hats off to him and I think his squad mgt is top drawer.

3.) 04 Jul 2021 08:32:00
I remember in the 2012 Europe's where all the talk was about how England simply couldn't retain possession of the ball and control games like other countries did and of course 2014 and 2016 are best not talked about.

He's changed so much so quickly and full credit to him, 2 semi finals out of 2 attempts amd maybe just maybe, we will get to see England in a final, I was 4 years old the last time that happend and was probably to busy being a thunderbird to watch football back then.

Hi Senior, hi Yard, Auba joined well after we'd already lost champions league football and the decline didn't start when Arsene left it actually brought about his having to leave, we finish 6th and 5th in Arsenes last 2 seasons.
When Xhaka and Mustafi arrived we were still a champions league club but our failure to qualify began with thier arrival.

I genuinely can't remember when Laca joined and can't be bothered to Google it, but I do think we have finished top 4 with Laca, obviously that would have to be before the arrival of Xhaka if true ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜€.

We keep playing out from the back but never seem to get any better at it Ed014 mate, I'm not sure how many times you have to knock yourself out before you come to the conclusion boxing isn't your thing.


{Ed014's Note - I donโ€™t have a problem playing out from the back but I donโ€™t think for starters Leno fills our defence with any confidence because heโ€™s so bad at it. Add Xhaka into that mix and light the touch paper!

That then just compounds everything else and seeing it happening again is just a tad disheartening.

Cheers Epping mate and Ed014, there surely comes a time when if you want things to be different you've got to accept what hasn't worked out and make that change possible.


{Ed014's Note - Iโ€™m truly hoping Arteta is picking up and all these things we see and irons them out.

I must admit seeing that farcical goal we conceded against Watford last week really concerns me though.

We've either gone backwards or failed to progress each and every season since Xhaka arrived, prior to siging Xhaka we had 20 consecutive years of top 4 finishes but since Xhaka joined we've slipped from Cl to El to now not qualifying for European football at all, coincidence? Maybe but even his biggest fan would struggle to make a case for how he's improve us in any away since he arrived.
Surely it's time to accept it didn't work out for us and Xhaka together and move on.

My current thinking is to use a motor racing analogy, you can tweak the car all you want and make it as aerodynamic as possible and modify the traction all you want but if the driver can't get the best out of it then the end result won't change much.

It's preseason so results mean nothing but the same old things that cost us last season still look very much part of the plan moving forward.

Arteta reminds me of both Arsene and Emery in his refusal to change or adapt his ideals regardless of his players inability to fulfil his personal ideologies.

Playing out from the back is like dancing, if you can do it well then you look brilliant doing it, but if your really not good at it then it's best left alone as you only end up giving everyone else a good laugh at your expense.
