Rumour from Spanish jouno that RM want Odegaard back in the summer. Shame if true, quality player.




17 Jul 2019 19:30:48
Ornstein saying Saliba deal is done and about time, right, next.


1.) 17 Jul 2019 20:51:02
Good news but doesn't really get the excitement levels buzzing as we won't see him for at least another 12 months, but good news all the same.

2.) 17 Jul 2019 21:24:15
He hasn’t said it’s a done deal he has said it's close on his Twitter.

3.) 17 Jul 2019 21:50:05
Whats good about this deal is that Saliba preferred us over spurs.

4.) 18 Jul 2019 18:26:19
From what I have seen this kid could be a world beater and its been years since we have had someone so young already showing huge potential. Our 1st team is ageing and we clearly are not in a position to buy ready made talent like Chelski and the Mancs so we have to be a bit more creative in the transfer windows.



15 May 2019 21:12:42
Any truth in the Walter Kannemann to Arsenal story Eds?


{Ed002's Note - No idea.}

1.) 16 May 2019 16:42:31
With limited fund and wages available this summer, he may be the sort of signing we are looking to make.



15 Jan 2019 23:06:19
Mislintat leaving because of our financial position, seems like we are doomed.


1.) 16 Jan 2019 01:58:48
Most reports say that he is leaving because he is not being allowed to grow his role into technical directorship, which Gazidis offered him on taking the job. Don't know where you got that other stuff but it sounds like nonsense.

2.) 16 Jan 2019 08:08:20
Emery makes the comment that we won't buy this window and the media make mischief, their job is to get hits and it's in our best interests to remember the media simply can't afford for there to be no news for an hour let alone a day or a week.
How would sky fill their 24 hour rolling news if they had to stay within the boundaries of the truth.
Rob Holding is injured and Theo Walcott has left Arsenal stories get 00 viewers or readers.



15 Jan 2019 20:34:21
Well according to Belgian media we have been offered Carrasco but can't afford him. Being reported on Sky Sports.

Willock is a new player since going to Newcastle, running Leicester ragged.


1.) 07 May 2021 22:43:57
Yes he's actually proving me well wrong about him Sparky, who knew? 😉😂😂😎.



06 May 2021 22:05:56
Awful, no passion, no urgency, no clue.




29 Apr 2021 22:12:16
We got out of jail tonight, if we play the same way in the 2nd leg we can forget the final.


1.) 29 Apr 2021 22:26:57
We will win the home leg I’m confident.

2.) 29 Apr 2021 22:32:09
I live in hope mate but we can't play that formation again.

3.) 29 Apr 2021 22:48:21
Agree Banbury but an Arsenal win not a popular result on here! Go figure COYG.

4.) 29 Apr 2021 23:36:02
We should get to the finals but agree with the formation. Why tinker with Partey Xhaka pairing when they had started to form a good midfield. Xhaka is not a left back and doesn't have the pace to play full back, why can't Arteta understand that. Why play Smith Rowe upfront when we have Martinelli. It's all bonkers!

5.) 29 Apr 2021 23:43:42
Of course it would be popular but playing Granit left back and that first half knocked the stuffing out of me but I want us to win especially in EL.

6.) 30 Apr 2021 08:37:13
I don't imagine anyone here wants the team to do bad but the facts are we are awful at present. So inconsistent its almost laughable.

7.) 30 Apr 2021 09:05:42
I agree Sparky we aren`t great at present and very inconsistent but despite that still in the tie and a chance of a European final! Don`t delude yourself though a whole raft of people on here want the team to do badly baffling but true COYG.

8.) 30 Apr 2021 19:57:05
Dislike of the managger or not, don't matter which side of the fence you are on, you should always be behind the team COYG.



02 Feb 2021 20:26:52
Usually i'm one of the 1st to have a dig at Luiz but that decision was a joke. VAR seems to depend on who you are [ the challenge on Xhaka in the Man U game for eample] I'm more peed off with Leno, what an idiot, what was he thinking!


1.) 02 Feb 2021 20:40:52
Really? The guy makes those mistakes constantly please learn the rules of the game! And Leno would not have had to come for the ball If we had 11 players on the pitch.

2.) 02 Feb 2021 20:47:22
Which is why I said "usually i'm the 1st one to have a dig at Luiz" Learn to read.

3.) 02 Feb 2021 20:50:15
I’ve tried to read your post but I don’t know what an “eample “ is 🤣.

4.) 02 Feb 2021 21:00:57
:) it's code.

5.) 02 Feb 2021 21:31:57
If it was Holding making getting sent off tonight in exactly the same way as Luis did would Holding be a unlucky or a liability?
It's really tough to separate our personal feelings about a player from events.

6.) 02 Feb 2021 22:06:02
It’s quite simple 69 LUIZ makes mistakes all the time, rash decisions leaving himself out of position so he panics to get back in position, he’s an awful centre back!
He gets away with it in a back 3 but not part of a CB pairing
It’s not just today, use the search function I said it after the MANU game, he got away with 4 mistakes because team mates recovered for him
You CANNOT play that way when you are last defence before the keeper.

7.) 02 Feb 2021 22:29:32
To be fair me and Ed047 said before the United that United would probably get a penalty and if they did it would be Luis or Xhaka who gave it away.
Throughout his career Luis has been better DM or sweeper we've always known that, he's also always has been a player than gives 100% and is always in the thick of the action, either a hero or villain and never ever uninvolved passenger.

8.) 02 Feb 2021 23:00:14
Sorry but I can't blame this on Luiz. He didn't make a challenge and you could clearly see the opponent looking for contact. This was a major refereeing error, of the type that we seem to get the wrong side of more often than not. Yes, he is 'that type of player'. But redemption has to start somewhere. Penalty and a yellow, never a red.

Also it was sort of funny that we probably still should have won that game with 9 men! Nothing Arteta could do about tonight, it was all on the players I think.

9.) 02 Feb 2021 23:31:21
Thing is 62 compare Holdings record to Luiz record, Holding would be unlucky and Luiz a liability because he frequently gets a red, nothing to do with personalities. well it is actually because DL has that sort of personality to just do dumb things.

10.) 02 Feb 2021 23:55:39
Luiz was unlucky but his positional sense and decision making put him in that position. He pulled out but still a penalty. How many is that? Him and Granit plus Mustafi and Kola were defensive liabilities and could play at the tempo required consistently. We have two left and both naturally have mistakes in them due to how they think / execute / play. At present we need Luiz leadership but I’d argue at what cost and what leadership. With Granit we get a few nice passes but again at what cost. Against underperforming sides we get away with it but they will always give opponents hope which isn’t good. We need to accept they are here now and hope we move them on respectively in the summer. Our leaders should give our team more hope when the backs are against the wall not the opponents more hope.

Like Granit - I close my eyes when he tackles near our box or in the box. Worry when he receives a pass with his back to play and expect a slow sideways pass.

Luiz - I expect 3 big mistakes a game. Sleeping, out of position or bad tackle. He also slows us down and his Hollywood passes go straight to terrestrial tv and skip cinema or pay per view as the quality and consistency just isn’t there. He was a very poor signing as not a true defender like Holding etc

Fingers crossed we upgrade in summer.

11.) 03 Feb 2021 07:30:33
That’s exactly what I said 62 people only seem to moan about players they don’t like luis xhaka ect I think if that was holding it would be a diffrent story!

12.) 03 Feb 2021 07:45:21
Holding hasn't done it on numerous occasions costing us plenty of points so no, it wouldn't be the same. That's obvious 🥱😂.

13.) 03 Feb 2021 07:57:42
SY totally agree AGAIN that’s twice in 24 hours 🤣🤣.

14.) 03 Feb 2021 08:50:54
Each incident should be judged on the merits of that incident alone Welsh mate and it should be irrelevant who was involved in the incident, the red card was either harsh or correct regardless of whoever received it.
But it's so difficult for all of us to put aside our feelings about an individual when making a judgement.

If it emerged that RVP or Ashley Cole had won £100,000 betting on Wolves 2 Arsenal 1 they wouid be traitors but if it was Henry or Bergkamp it would Just prove how thier fantastic knowledge of the game.

It's so difficult for all of us to separate our feelings from our judgements.

15.) 03 Feb 2021 12:48:36
Exactly mate.



06 Oct 2020 19:32:52
Hey Eds, any truth in Kroenke finally getting his hand in his pocket to fund the Partey buy?


{Ed002's Note - Arsenal have to comply with FFP rules - they are gambling on the future. Perhaps you don't understand that.}

Heard they have agreed to pay him 15mil a year.


{Ed002's Note - That would be less than Arsenal pay him.}

apparently wants to buy out his contract. Not the best way to go about things and not what you would expect of your captain. Should have kicked him out 2 years ago and given the money to Rambo.

I know that's why i mentioned his complete disregard for fans when moving th Rams to LA. He doesn't care what fans think, he only sees Arsenal as another cash cow.

He doesn't care what fans think, he only cares about the money. Maybe being out of Europe for a few years will twist his arm but by then we will be in the lower end of the league remembering when we were good.
