Re: Arsenal 2018/2019

^^^^^^ It was Xhaka with the header. Another one of his errors costs us again. This was always going to be a season of ups and downs, and after the 22 match unbeaten run (which masked a lot of our weaknesess) this is now one of the real downs. But Emery’s job is to turn things around. He might get s...

Re: Arsenal 2018/2019

Surprised to see that Arsenal are now prepared to let Aaron Ramsey leave on a free transfer at the end of the season. I guess they're hoping to sell him in January, but why would any club pay a fee when they can wait five months and pay nothing? Maybe he'll come to Spurs, we love a deal :wink: A bi...

Re: World Cup 2018

Would be very surprised if the French do not win it and predict 3-1 in their favour. Think they will be the fresher and have too much pace and skill in their ranks. Would expect Croatia to give it a go but would suspect they will tire as the game reaches the final stages. Brilliant effort by a coun...

Re: Arsenal 2017/2018

Unai Emery's first signing as Arsenal manager is likely to be Stephan Lichtsteiner, a 34-year-old right back late of Juventus, on the bench as much as in the team, and available on a free transfer. It's a bold new era, indeed. :lol: :lol: What's so funny? He's a proven winner with loads of experien...

That was a hard defeat to take and I feel really bad for Arsenal and Wenger. We were made to pay for our first leg performance when we should’ve taken full advantage of the many chances we had, but instead allowed AM to come away with a draw due to dreadful defending (as seems to be our norm now).

It’s over. Nothing left to do but make the inevitable “mutual agreement” decision. Fans are staying away, the players look as though they don’t care/given up and Wenger looks out of ideas as to how to fix it. If you asked me to imagine the saddest possible situation for Wenger, I probably would have...

That could’ve been 4-5 nil but for Cech and some sloppy finishing. We were barely ever in the game. And why do we allow teams so much time and space on the ball? Seems when there was an opportunity to press and apply pressure, we’re just happy to back off and allow Tottenham to play. I feel for Laca...

Looks like Giroud is gone as well. to Chelsea no less (Arsenal will have this month sold three players who scored 65 goals between them last season - all to rivals).
Unlike most people, I rated him and felt he doesn't get the credit he deserved.

Re: Arsenal 2017/2018

I should add that I've always loved Wenger, but its obvious that there needed to be a change at the end of last season.

Arsenal could've let Wenger leave on a high (after the FA Cup win) but the owner/board were just happy to let things coast along as they were.
