Other bad signings Eboue and Denilsen. Both didn't financially didn't cost much but denilsen played about 100 times for arsenal and Eboue 132 so it took Wenger and awfully long time to realise those 2 players were not up to scratch to the detriment of our team.


To be fair, Eboue was excellent in his first season when Wenger deigned to allow Keown and Bould do defensive coaching (and lest we forget, a lovely dive to win the free-kick from which Sol scored in the Champion's League final before that *%^@ linesman screwed us for Barca's equaliser - as Almunia did for their winner!).

Denilson? Very good as an occasional squad player, but when he stepped up to the gig full time, he wasn't up to it.

Both would have been excellent signings if relied on rather less than they were.

Here's my New Year wish list ......... For once I'm more eager to see people f*** off than us make new signings because any new signing would soon be programmed to play the same insipid Wengerball .

Have a major clean out Walcott , Sanchez , Bellerin , Özil , Coquelin , Čech , Ospina , Mertesacker , Cazorla , Wilshere

Promote the kids have a mediocre season , finish eighth ...Wenger f****s off ...... doesn't hang on as a scout , manager , director , advisor , tea boy ....... nothing ......and the new season we get a new manager , who makes his own signings , adopts much more direct style , learn to defend cohesively and I can get back to liking Arsenal Football Club .

If Walcott goes I'll be drunk for a week .

So Pete, it'll be a normal week for you if Walcott goes...

The opportunity to see the useless little pr*** warming up in someone elses colours is too good to blow .

He should be donating half his wages to charity every week the amount of effort he puts in or gaoled for robbery .

Wenger was great at seeing undervalued players who could play his style and overwhelm opposition in attack. The opposition caught up tactically and then he had no idea how to deal with it. That's about years 1 -10 and 10 - 20 in a nutshell for me.

We went from a team of talented Titans ......Bergkamp , Henry , Pires , Edu , Campbell , Lehmann , Vieira , Petit , Senderos all over six feet to a team of f***&^***f midgets .

The opposition didn't catch up ...Wenger lost the plot

You found the abacus then?

Agree wholeheartedly with your comment - he's a cheat for taking those wages. In any other business he'd have been performance managed out a long time ago. And as for those empty platitudes (is that the right word) to the press, the club should have banned him from speaking.

Eff Fat Sam. The guy is a brutish man who has some deep rooted hatred for Wenger.


and what's so wrong with that .... most of this forum hate Wenger .

I'd rather sit down for a chin wag with Big Sam than Arsene any day of the week .

True John .... I worked for dude once , making some large farm gates , hand rails etc ... made a complete pigs ear of the job took four days to eventually get everything ship shape ........... I said pay me for two .

I struggle to see how someone can happily accept huge wages for doing so little .

Not just yet - but down to months now. 11 months and 20 days to be exact! :laughing7:

Wenger confirms that Alexis will go if they can find a replacement;that he would have sold him earlier if a replacement could be found; that he would do things the same again.

Alberto Mendez! I remember an interesting story about him. Apparently he was brilliant in training - technically one of the better players - but used to get so nervous about games he always played within himself.

Warrior, I know this is asking a lot but is there any way you can put up a countdown clock to the end of Wengers current contract. It will have to be in GMT and not Aust time. If its not possible I understand.

All the latest stories suggest he is going nowhere so a phone reminder for him would be very helpful indeed.

Says it all


“So in every single decision I make what is right for the club. Do I stay for one year or ten years it is exactly the same"


He simply doesn't see it. Totally delusional, he thinks it's is his club and he owns Arsenal. He doesn't care about the damage being done.

I'm not as convinced as you appear to be that he will go in 2019. Kroenke isn't bothered about trophies. In my view, he's made that clear. If they happen - great it's a bonus, but that's it.

He presumably cares far more about the Premier League gravy train and under Wenger, Arsenal surely won't be relegated. So the TV money will still come rolling in with steady old Arsene at the helm. I accept winning trophies is crucial for maximising profits via increasing the world wide fan base, expanding merchandising and sponsorship revenues, as well as inflating demand for tickets. But Stan may think such increases aren't nearly as important as staying in the Premier League, and Arsene with his flat track bullies can be relied on for that.

I have no doubt that Stan realises that winning umpteen trophies and being the best team in the land is going to increase profits, but I think he knows it will take an awful lot of money, sustained big spending, to reach that point - which isn’t even guaranteed after he’s spent the money. As you say, far easier to take the low risk approach of just staying 6th and taking the guaranteed profits rather than risk chasing more

Tomorrow could be City’s biggest test for going the season unbeaten. There are more consistent teams, as the table proves, but at their best Liverpool are better than all but City in my opinion.

Putting aside bias, if city go unbeaten how would that rank against our unbeaten season? Looking at just the results it could be deemed to be better because the league has more really good teams whereas we had a strong Man U, and emerging Chelsea under abramovic and also rans. But in the wider context of what City have spent vs how much we put that squad together for there is only one winner. The quality of the football would be hard to separate

For the reasons you give, I suspect most Arsenal fans would rate our one more highly. But if City drop fewer points in what, as you say, is probably now a harder league (in the context of a bigger number of better sides), I'd expect most people would rate City's more highly.

As time moves on I think financial doping will be seen as less of a negative about the success of clubs.

I have to say I am not sure he will go but I want to grab onto any shred of hope that I have left. If you told me tomorrow that he had another 6/8 years left at the club I think I would just stop watching.

I am sure Wenger will be already planting the seed at board level that with so many players leaving only stability at manager level can keep the club going. It might explain why he has let the contracts run down on so many players. I know that sounds really unlikely but with some of his current ravings I rule nothing out.

Stan Kroenke is an old man. He might see the same challenges he faces from his own son. Faced with being succeeded him and Wenger might be making the last stand.

Overmars and Petit in '97 also have to be up there despite the fact their spells were relatively short.

Not wrong there Niall ... did he score on his debut v Man U .
Says a lot for our squad today Ramsay would be a poor man's Ljungberg .

That goal in the Cup Final ... most these days would be content to with a theatrical collapse and win a free kick

We gave the Pakistanis a tune up in the third one dayer today , chasing our score of 251 ; at one stage they were 7 for 3 :laughing7: and after eleven overs they'd scored eleven runs .

They were eventually all out for 74 .

Ljungberg in todays Arsenal would look terrible, and Ramsey supplied by Bergkamp, Henry and Pires would be scoring for fun. It's a very unfair comparison considering the difference in quality between Arsenal now and then.

I also saw the game against Sweden. As far as I'm concerned he never played that well again. It was a superb performance and as a result, by comparison, I always felt a little underwhelmed by his displays in an Arsenal shirt.

I see Rixy is in deepest doo-doo having been reported for his outrageous racist treatment of black Chelsea youths under his control when he was a coach there.

I bet George Berry has allowed himself a wry smile this morning.

Hmm, someone getting excited about a one-day cricket match. Sorry, Pete, I'm afraid that's what they call 'demenza senile'.

City are on course for a remarkable points total. If they keep it up, it won't even be a contest. I actually don't think that the league is better today. The top 6 have deeper squads,, but not necessarily better teams. The rest of the division is weak and so many teams park the bus that it is probably less likely for a big team to be beaten.

City play a good brand of football but certainly not as entertaining as our 2004 team in my view.

Ljungberg also. Watched him vs England and signed him immediately for £3m. That was Wenger at his best too, taking an ingenious punt. The result, one of the best goalscoring widemen in the era with important goals and assists |(one in particular) that will live in the memory banks forever.

Overmars and Petit in '97 also have to be up there despite the fact their spells were relatively short.

Not wrong there Niall ... did he score on his debut v Man U .
Says a lot for our squad today Ramsay would be a poor man's Ljungberg .

That goal in the Cup Final ... most these days would be content to with a theatrical collapse and win a free kick

Cheers Pete, enjoyed the video. Some great finishes in there...

and also noticeable how many rebounds were scored. Pires as well was a master at sniffing chances on the rebound.
2 things stop the current team scoring these goals. 1. our woeful accuracy with our shots and 2. the lack of players getting in the box

We only have 3 players in our entire squad who are technically capable enough of scoring more than 10 goals per season. That's Walcott, lacazatte and Sanchez and we are selling 2 of them by the looks of things, where are the goals going to come from ?

Mahrez plying very well away to Chelsea. Leicester by far the better team

Leicester not resting up, they are battering Chelsea, chances, possession, territory. It is like watching a top 4 team playing a relegation team who just pack defence and can’t get hold of the ball.

Mahrez has just done a shameful dive. Ref didn’t give the pen or yellow, can you only get retrospective bans for dives that do con the ref?

Malcolm played 85 minutes tonight, laid on the only goal after a good run and cross, don't know if he was subbed to allow a farewell wave or not but rumours are building very strongly about him leaving.

Warrior, I know this is asking a lot but is there any way you can put up a countdown clock to the end of Wengers current contract. It will have to be in GMT and not Aust time. If its not possible I understand.

You want it to just countdown til the end of his contract, or for when he actually skedaddles ? :sad4:

Just until the end of the current contract and then we could restart the clock countdown for each of the future contracts.
