    Mr wenger needs the Emirate fa cup trophy to be the record winner as a manager. This might be his last season for us so, i would like him have that record which looks unbreakable. BUT, we have all the strong teams still in the cup.
    I foresee a north London derby draw tonight to start with.

    If we are looking for scapegoats (I am not), what does that big green dinosaur contribute?
    He seems happy regardless of results. Surely that attitude cannot be tolerated.

    What is more amazing is how such ‘fake news’ find fertile ground in the gullible Arsenal fans, who have adopted the innuendo of a “club in crisis” which all the silly reports have served to highlight. Alexis grimaces on camera and the reports interpreted that as him smiling at our downfall, as if he isn’t a part of the team.

    For a few weeks now, I have kept off reading headlines on blogs or the papers, even avoiding some football programs, other than the info I can glean from the club website and other known reliable outlets. It is bizarre how the media appear to have laid siege on the club…and I have a theory on that: Manchester United needs to make top 4! So, create a semblance of disharmony amongst players and further divide the fan base. Then, surely, United can take advantage.

    Well, it’s up to the boys to stand firm and try to win each of the next 12 league games (86 points) and see where that leaves us. Indeed, win every game till the end of the season and win the FA cup a record 13 times.

    Bayern Munich are looking at Xhaka. They are also very interested in Serge Gnabry. City and Chelsea are interested in Alexis, and United and City are looking at Ox. My feeling is that we will probably give in and re-build the squad – but we’ll get rid of the wrong players to accommodate that.

    On the other hand, it looks like Mesut wants to stay – and hopefully he can persuade his little mate Alexis to stay as well. Then we build on that.

    * sorry but you missed out Shez & Jack leaving when they get back from their loan spells. Wasn’t Giroud touted to leave to go back to France as well, oh and Per back to Germany

    By the time the transfer window opens it will be easier to list the players who are apparently staying

    media has already claimed that we are outside top 4. When we lost to Liverpool, the first thing the commentator said,,,”ARSENAL are out of top 4″. That despite us playing one less game than Liverpool and only 2 points behind them.

    @Goonereris

    I’ve chuckled at this “club in crisis” nonsense too. I heard a “supporter” on Radio 5 on Saturday complaining that 5-0 was rubbish and it should have been 10-0 at least. I suspect if it had been 10 he’d have moaned it wasn’t 12. He went on to parrot the media in talking about the Arsenal decline. Of course Savage loved it and agreed like a bloody lapdog. Neither chose to explain how two FA Cups followed by Runners Up in the League could be defined as “decline”. This was so totally demonstrative of someone who listens to the media rather than looks at the facts and thinks for himself.

    @Walter

    As soon as I saw the headline, my thought was identical to yours. Let’s kick out those people who don’t actually “support” the club.

    From all d noise nd confusion dat has bin created around Arsenal nd Wenger in d last weeks, I tink am in tune wit d commenter who said room must b created for ManU to get into d top 4 from outside d pitch but tru d media war on Arsenal to distabilse d team nd d manager; I hope AW nd d players are conscious of dis very ungodly conspiracy ;they shuld d4 take up d gauntlet close ranks nd forge ahead discarding all distractions frm witin nd outside. They shuld determinedly focus on d remainIng games of d season nd ensure they are played like cup finals. If Alexis has become a clog in d wheel of progress of d team AW shuld ignore him nd give Lucas a chance as. His replacement in d team, no player is is too important to be replaced , Lucas has not bin given d chance to prove his mettle I cee in him a beta player dan Alexis afta all AW made Alexis d star he tinks he is so Lucas can fit in properly in d team all he nids is d chance. Shalom!!!

    Arsenal had two easy finals but this one looks insurmountable. Now looking like the over under dogs. Do not imagine most of the above players would want to leave because a it’s a stress free environment because it is such a NICE club now and b who would want them honestly. Jack just makes up the numbers and he is only surviving ay Bournemouth. Walter & Hunter moaning about the percieved moaners. Honestly chaps. Let’s hope the Ox will stop his moaning and be like well Ramsay. Never seen him so happy than when he broke the net against Lincoln. A win against the Baggies will see it through.

    2014- 4th place; and the FA cup
    2015 – 3rd place; the FA cup and the Charity shield.
    2016 – 2nd place; and the Charity shield.

    Only thing missing this season (and I am not saying it is over yet) is the natural progression to 1st place in the league.

    The abov don’t suggest a team in decline. The team plateaued but has not regressed as the media will have you believe. Only 6 sides have won the EPL so not sure where the sense of entitlement originated.

    Pierce Mrgan.

    Institute a good news/bad news indicator for former players turned muppets. If they get more than 6 sigma to the negative side, cut them off.

    Do the same thing for directors, except the cutoff is 4.5 sigma.

    Do the same thing for the commentators on Arsenal TV (the position that Stewar[dt] person had), with a cutoff of 3 sigma.

    —-

    The NHL instituted a “winter classic” game a few years ago. It is played outside, not in the regular location for the team deemed the home team.

    Football in England needs to be doing more for the grassroots (other than having an endless array of muppets advocate for gratuitous violence in games).

    There were historically reasons why the last gameday has all games starting at the same time. I really don’t think there is a reason to do this for the first gameday. Have a special game on the first gameday, at an earlier time. The game is played at some reconstructed field that is being handed back to the community.

    So the Arsenal PR machine is out to destroy Arsenal with stories of “Alexis should be sold because his distance covered stats” and “Bellerin and Ozil to leave if Wenger leaves” and the ex players and pundits who believe Arsenal fans who protest are disgusting…..yea the media is out to destroy us including Wenger loyalist John Cross.

    You need to drop this mentality of us vs the world. It’s as predictable as Arsenal in February.

    Yes lets get rid of the last true fans and replace them with more of the tourist supporters that are only there for the attraction and the corporate hospitality…They are part of the problem and everything that is wrong with the club.The majority of Wengers cult following on here dont go to the games and have never stepped foot in the country never mind the Emirates.
    The only people who want him to sign another contract are the few on here with a few die hard Wenger lovers and fans from Man u,chelsea,Man city,liverpool and Spurs who recognise whilst he is still in charge of Arsenal they needent worry about competion for the top honours.WEXIT

    In fact ossasa, Tommo & tom are the current tourists in the Untold pleasant valley . Where Hunter13 rightly claims Arsenal as his & Wengers. Brickfields describes those special ones as ‘them’.

    To me they are blind to the real threat to the game & to Arsenal – the FA & PGMOL. These two organisations eating away at the honesty like flesh eating bacteria.

    tom…sorry dude ..true fans dont go acting like cunts to managers who changed their club for the better.

    they have expressed their opinion..they can sit down now…and if theyre that upset about it they can stay home.

    if you think that coming like a cunt swearing and abusing wenger till you get your way is democratic or exercise of your freedom rights then you are a moron and i would happily slap some sense into you.

    Take no notice of tom.

    He’s the one who came here with the statement:

    “I bet you didn’t complain when Eboue and Pires where regularly diving for penalties”

    All I did was suggest that Pires reputation for diving was exaggerated and requested some evidence to support his accusation, after which I would apologise if he could produce it.

    Suffice to say I’m still waiting.

    Hunter Happy to play the hard keyboard warrior arent you..I have no doubt he changed the club for the better and was once a top manager,but does that mean we should keep him as manager till he dies???Sentiment plays no part in sport as many managers will vouch for.The likes of Ranieri and mourinhio has been more sucessful than Wenger in the last 10 years but it didnt stop their respective clubs making a change when things started to go wrong.so quit the insults and get back to school.
    And nitram why do i need evidence of Pires’s diving antics .We all knew that he was one of the best at the time trying to con referees.

      Tom, I don’t think you quite get the notion about evidence overall. Pires dived, yes. But the issue is, did other players in other teams, and then did Pires do it more or less, and did Arsenal have more or fewer divers diving more or less often than other teams. Your view is a bit like the commentary in that Bolton film you sent over: the Bolton Conspiracy. Those making that video could make the point that we have often made that the football media in England creates the agenda and then directs discussion within it – that would be an valid point. But on its own and without reference to other teams that video does not show a conspiracy. Evidence of the type that we published today however goes much further because it compares all the clubs in the league across 16 consecutive weekends. Saying here that Pires dived is a bit like saying Tony Adams committed fouls or that on occasion Matin Keown could be aggressive. The answer is Yes. And???

    Tony i was responding to Nitram comments-“All I did was suggest that Pires reputation for diving was exaggerated and requested some evidence to support his accusation, after which I would apologise if he could produce it.”
    It has nothing to do with other players from other teams diving.He asked for evidence of Pires diving and ive just shown him a few examples simple.
    And you even have to admit that Pires although not quite as bad as Klinsmann, used to simulate more than most.I certainly know about evidence and i know enough to see that theres only certain posters that have to produce evidence on this site and that all depends on wether you are Wenger in or Wenger out.At least you can try to be a little less bias on those you ask..The same can be said about certain posters getting away with using foul language threatening insults and racist remarks.

    tom

    Are you serious?

    My question was in response to this statement of yours:

    “I bet you didn’t complain when Eboue and Pires where regularly diving for penalties”

    I fail to see how you’ve answered that in any way shape or form.

    —–Your 1st instance against Bolton is:

    a) Not even in the penalty box.

    b) A reckless tackle.

    c) A foul whether contact was made or not.

    The video was more highlighting the commentator, who understandably thought a foul had been given to Pires, rather than booking him for diving.

    But if you want to call it a dive that’s fine, but it’s NOT a dive for a penalty is it, so irrelevant to your defence anyway.

    —–Your 2nd example.

    Okay, if he admitted that then fine. That’s One. But at least he put his hands up which is more than we can say for Rooney, Gerrard, Bale, and countless other habitual divers.

    —–Your 3rd example.

    Same as your first so that hardly counts.

    —–Your 4th example.

    The Pompy one. Well I mentioned that anyway, and that incident is the one I cited as the moment this myth that “Pires regularly dived to win penalties’ took hold.

    This is what Wenger subsequently said about that incident:

    “Pires once dived against Portsmouth. For six months it was a story. Dyer dived and nobody said a word. If it doesn’t matter when Dyer dives, why does it matter when Pires dives”

    Exactly. Or more to the point, rather than 6 months, as you so eloquently prove, nearly TWO DECADES later it is STILL referred to. It’s as if nobody else has ever dived.

    This is also the ‘Dive’ that prompted Danny Mills to ridiculously claim that Pires bought diving to the English game.

    Jürgen Klinsmann anyone?

    Flashback: Jürgen Klinsmann’s Diving Celebration

    By Daryl Grove | August 20, 2014 | 11:24am

    “Klinsmann had signed for Tottenham that summer, becoming one of the first big-name foreign players in the Premier League. Maybe the biggest to that point. He’d just scored five goals in the 1994 World Cup, and was recognized as one of the world’s greatest strikers. But he also arrived with a reputation for diving, a reputation which meant he was greeted with hostility by English media and fans.

    But hay, he’s a Spurs player so it’s all forgotten.

    So in conclusion.

    In and entire career you have produced evidence of just 2 dives that can be classed as ‘Dives to win a penalty”

    Hardly ‘Regular’ is it?

    And in case you forgot you also accused Eboue.

    You have not produced ANY evidence to back that accusation up. Nothing.

    To be honest tom, that was a very poor effort, but luckily for you your embarrassment is saved as this thread is long gone. If you want to move it into the here and now, feel free, but I’m happy to leave you to your ignorance…….for now.

    Fair does, at least you tried, which is more than most.
