Yep UK is now a Tory state run by a wealthy oligarchy that controls the media.

A documentary proving that the now Prime Minister had a four year affair with a dodgy foreign woman who received taxpayer funded business benefits from it goes out then it’s revealed he’s having off books meetings with KGB officers and in any other decade that would be it for him.

I’m a fan of certain centre right type political stances but without checks and balances they now run riot. A John Major type PM would be most welcome right now.

Don’t vote. It’s pointless until the English mentality changes and it probably needs a recession to do that

I loved Viv Anderson so I've stuck him in out of position at left back, it was him or Winterburn.

Did Rimmer ever play for England? My eleven is Seaman, Anderson, Adams, Campbell, Sansom, Rocastle, Ball, Williams, Merson, Wright, Woodcock.

I realise Arsenal didn’t start when I started going, but I’m restricting my team to those I’ve seen play for the club.

As much as I still think Emery should be given to the end of the season at least, I don't think I've ever been this disinterested in upcoming Arsenal matches. It's one of those periods clubs go through that makes it tough to be a supporter .

I can only imagine what some of you guys went through some seasons in the '70s and early '80s, FA cup finals notwithstanding.

I have a good Polish friend who was married during the communist times. He was told when he applied for a telephone that it would be 9 years. No word of a lie.
However a few prime cuts from his brother's pigs and a few bottles of the hard stuff got the matter sorted considerably more quickly.

I think you’re right Top Gun. The rumours before the Leicester game was a bad defeat would see Emery sacked. Well it was a bad defeat, not so much for the score line but the way we were outplayed. But he not only survived, he’s now reported as being given another month during which we play relegation candidates.

The thing is he needs 7 to 9 points from those 3 games because the ones that follow are much harder (chelsea, City etc).

The board are in denial

If it continues you will see a return of the apathy towards the club. Time to admit we got this one wrong and change it before we waste another year.

Why is he being given another month. What will that tell us that we don't already know. Wasting time. Sleepwalking.

The only one who has drained the DNA from the club are the owner, Emery, like Wenger, is just symptom of the Kroenke-disease.

That’s a crazy decision

I’d be surprised if Mourinho doesn’t end up there although I’m concerned they might try and tempt Emery with a huge offer.

Wow that came a bit out of the blue, but I'm glad they sacked him, this will well and truly show our board up if Spurs manage to usurp us again in the league and if not then Spurs will have had a poor season (they'll have to to finish below us under Emery!).

I can't believe Mourinho will go there though, they will be on a limited budget and even more so if they are in the EL next season, would be a real change of tactic from him as he is always known as a chequebook manager, which is why I can't see him at Arsenal either.

Anyway I don't really care that much.... Kroenke OUT.

ZZZZ

Poch, despite all the talk, nil trophies in a decade of management.
Mourinho (insert big number of trophies) a proven winner for best part of 20 years.
No mystery to Levy's decision.

Honestly I think they're up *%^@ creek. Pochetino never seemed like he was a huge toxic issue, it seemed like with heavy reliance on a few, admittedly very good, players and with 4* of them leaving on frees this summer I believe, the whole system was creaking. I'm note sure anyone else is going to get a lot more from them. But maybe that's just my view from the outside. Maybe he's totally lost it?

*Eriksson, Alderwierlad, Rose and Vertonghen? All their contracts are up I think??

You have to admire the decisiveness from Levy. Even if it is the wrong decision he feels he needs to change it. Identifies the new guy, pulls the trigger and announces it the next day.

Watch Arsenal procrastinate around Emery for another few months believing he’s a guy he clearly isn’t.

There’s only one thing that can happen, well there’s two things. It can get worse or it stays the same,” Lee Dixon said on The Season So Far.

“And if it stays the same, either way, he’s not going to be in the job for long.

“It’s like making the same mistake time and time again. At some point you’ve got to go ‘maybe we should do something different’.

“Now what that different is is the board’s decision.

“At the moment the players don’t understand what the manager’s trying to do and the manager hasn’t got the players to do what he wants to do, so something has to change.

“Now whether that’s ‘right, we’ll give you a load of money at Christmas, get some more players’ or we change the manager. I kind of think it’s going to be the latter.

“I don’t want to see anybody lose their job but this is my football club we’re talking about and what I’m seeing now, you cannot game-manage like that. It’s irresponsible.”

I don't know whether the decision to sack Pochetinno and replace him with Mourinho is foolhardy or not but at least they have given him long enough to turn things around and secure a top four finish.

It's a pro-active decision in the sense that they could easily have left it until the end of the season to see how things worked out before sacking Poch.

Personally, I'd be happy to take Poch at Arsenal, not that it would ever happen. At least his teams (at their best) play with a certain attacking style and tenacity.

Of course no one knows what has gone on behind the scenes to force the issue but it does seem a big gamble.

The Gabriel Martinelli hype train has well and truly left the station.

He has had an amazing start to his Arsenal career, albeit against limited opposition, and I truly hope he is the next big thing in football but until we see him produce against top sides then it is far too early to label him the next Ronaldo or whatever. His blistering start is unsustainable so I hope that when the goals do dry up, as they will at some point, he is given time and space to breathe. He is only 18 after all.

I think it's a terrible decision to sack Pochettino and despite all the little rumours and him seeming not to be the happiest bunny recently I honestly didn't think they would sack him.
Yes he didn't win a trophy but he has clearly improved them.
At least it shows guts and balls from spurs to try and salvage their season and change things around while our clueless management waste precious time and plod along with the decent but clueless dead man walking in emery.
What exactly are Edu and Raul seeing that the rest of us can't see.
Its bloody frustrating as we are literally chucking a season still in its infancy down the pan.
