Bournemouth v Arsenal review – Arsenal simply can’t win any more..

The build up to this game was hijacked by Alexis Sanchez being dropped amid rumours of Arsenal selling him to Man United, but it should be billed as Jack Wilshere’s return to his old loan club, as all the focus is on him with Alexis and Ozil both missing.

The game got off to a quiet start and our first really big chance fell to Maitland-Niles, who made some room for himsellf inside the Cherries box, but his excellent shot came off the top of the bar. But Arsenal seemed to be lacking a bit of confidence but looked to be mostly in control for the first 15 minutes but Bournemouth got an occasional foray into the Arsenal half.

After 20 minutes Welbeck came close but Lacazette came away from a tackle with a limp. We certainly can’t afford to lose him as well! hen sraight away Iwobi was robbed going route one to the penalty area. Arsenal are having all the pressure but very little getting through to the danger area. Even Lacazette is seen on the wing to try and get some touches on the ball without getting closed down immediately! Bellerin and Iwobi are getting lots of room on the right wing but we are yet to see a good cross in the first half hour. It all seems to very lacklustre and the crowd is very quiet.

Jack Wilshere has definitely been the best player again so far and was working well with AMN in the middle. Welbeck has had a couple of chances but Bournemouth seem very happy to let Arsenal keep the ball while they defend deeply and they look comfortable just to have a breakaway now and then, but Cech is yet to be tested. But the Cherries decide to attack in the last 5 minutes of the half and Chambers blocks a shot that was probably the best chance of the half. The whistle goes and Bournemouth are not looking so much the underdogs and go in with their heads up….

The second half started like the first quite quietly, but suddenly five minutes in Bellerin burst down the win and into the box. It looked like Begovich managed to save it but the shot was too hard and bounced into the net. Arsenal get in front at last and the game should be opened up a bit now…

But Bournemouth break again and Xhaka got a nailed on yellow when he kicked out blatantly to stop the momentum, but nothing much else of notte happened in the first 20 minutes of the second period. Welbeck had a hand to his face but seems okay. But Bournemouth were trying hard to get the equalizer and suddenly a ball came in from the wing with four Arsenal players chasing Wilson down the flank, but a lovely cross comes in and somehow Cech fails to get there in time and the Cherries get the equalizer through Calum Wilson, who also scored against us twice last season. But Cech had a serious error of judgement to allow him to score.

Arsenal are suddenly looking nervous and Wenger brings on Ramsey for Chambers to try and get a winner, but with 15 minutes to go, Bournemouth are the ones to take advantage and Jordan Ibe jumps on a ball in the box and slots it past Cech. Oh my, Wenger doesn’t look very happy from the stands and it looks like the Gunners are going to go a fifth game in a row without a win. When was the last time that happened?

Wenger shows his desperation again and swaps Iwobi for Walcott who has only played 49 minutes in the League so far this season. Arsenal need to show siome urgency and Jack Wilshere gets the ball just outside the box but lamely shoots wide. Bournemouth have never beaten Arsenal in the Premier League before but they only have 8 minutes to hang on to change that.

But its just not happening for us, and Jordan Ibe nearly puts the game to bed. Arsenal finally start fighting in the last few minutes but no banana, and the 4 minutes added time is mostly spent in Arsenal’s half. Arsenal are left 5 points below both Liverpool and Tottenham and the Wenger trophy is receding into the distance. Oh well we’ve still got the Europa League!



  1. rkw says:

    let see at the next home game whether we have a fan base that cares

    1. muffdiver says:

      Alexis on the verge of being sold to a rival under a manager who directly insulted Wenger, and we lost to Bournemouth who haven’t won in 11 games.

      focus on europa and carabao
      hope wenger gets enough grief to want to leave this summer

      make it uncomfortable for everyone
      dont deserve our money or blind loyalty

      liars, deceitful .


        It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.

        I’m loving this. Let us go down , I mean down so our suffering can end once and for all.

      2. Lupe says:

        If wenger doesn’t leave after this season then he doesn’t love the club. I ready think so but not leaving after this season will confirm it for everyone. Why will ozil stay now? Infact if he stays, i will question his ambition and it will show he is staying only for the money because he might not get as much somewhere else.

        1. muffdiver says:

          ozil stays he has no ambition
          if he wants to compete do like rvp nasri cesc sanchez and all our best players did


        2. joseph says:

          Sure, why should any good player join Arsenal? I pitty Lacazette he joined wrong team

      3. Anko says:

        We have a manger who is in control of the whole club, he has been there for so long he felt he could do whatsoever he pleases and no one can question him. He is too old in his tactics, to stagnate in his method and to unrealistic with the way he handles transfer. I love that we lost today so that he will know we are not going anywhere with average and cheap players.

        1. Dave says:

          Hmmm I blame the fans stay at home let them play in an empty stadium.

      4. jon fox says:

        On a technical point, you CANNOT insult Wenger. To insult someone you have to say they are worse than they actually are. I say that task is impossible. There are not enough derogatory adjectives in our language to REALLY insult Wenger. I have said the most poisonous things about him BUT they all actually compiment him, inadvertently!

    2. Nayr says:

      wenger should resign.

      c’mon there is a threshold for everything..we are at the tipping point.

      1. Sad Gunner says:

        I agree he should go. But he is still making history for the club. First loss in FA Cup third round and first loss ever to Bournemouth so shy would he!

    3. Anko says:

      At least Man City will not end up been invincible!!!!!!

  2. Salmonella says:

    Performance against Watford copy paste today
    Lacazette goal drought continues
    Alexis smiles
    I smile bcoz I don’t want Bournemouth to get relegated
    But IT’S TIME TO GO!!!!!!!!

    1. Anko says:

      Until Wenger sees the worst days of his career; he is not going anywhere! A very sad day to be an Arsenal fan

      1. muffdiver says:

        whats sadder:

        alot of you after a loss , particularly bad ones like todays one scream enough’s enough
        wenger out

        then shy away and dont wanna get involved cos it could be worse/we cant be rude etc
        protests are dead cos our fanbase is

        im happy i and many others have the great memories of highbury
        cos that will never leave me

    2. E. Anderson says:

      No A. Sanchez.
      No M. Ozil.

      But Alexander Lacazette was there!
      He is not doing enough!
      Something is just off with his body language and application.
      He has to put more of himself into it, and refuse to be one dimensional…

      Honestly, I’m miss Sanchez… @100% or less, he is a worry to the opposition!

      1. E. Anderson says:

        Hey people…. why so much thumb downs???
        What I pointed out is obvious…if you wanna be really sincere…

        Lacazette is on a bad run as a striker, no goals in 8 or 9 games now but to come out of this he has to do much more than he is doing now, even though the team aint playing well in general…

        Just saying he could have done more today…is all!

        1. muffdiver says:

          his worse goal drought in 5 years
          whats the difference-

          his manager is arsene wenger
          his team is arsenal

        2. Neo Malefane says:

          Honestly I don;’t know why you are getting all these thumbs down. Lacazette has been on a horrible run of form. And you can’t say the team has not been creating for him. I don’t know why but people forget he missed three chances against Chelsea the other week in the league. The only difference is Morata had more clear cult chances. There is no point commenting om the game because I think much was already said, but what must be said is that Lacazette has truly underperformed in the last 9 games. Say what you want about Giroud, but i don’t remember him not scoring in 9 or 10 consecutive games in the premier league.

          1. RSH says:

            lacazette had zero shots this entire game. Similar statistics in most away games, he only gets one decent chance maybe. Any time he’s on the ball it’s because he has to track back to get it. Arsenal play the ball to him like he is Giroud I swear. Laca looks low on confidence though and needs to not give up and stop complaining all the time though cause it doesnt help anyone. But the team has absolutely no clue how to incorporate him in their play and create good chances.

          2. Neo Malefane says:

            Or maybe he is just an over-hyped over-rated striker. Bring back Giroud!

    3. Roehahn says:

      Somehow I just knew even before the game that Arsenal would ruin my Sunday..Atleast they didnt disappoint me today..yay !!!!

  3. sfgunner says:

    gutted but not surprised

    1. ivanolad says:

      It is painful to watch my beloved club in this state.
      The team looked too ordinary, that means it has really been ozil and Sanches all this while.
      I don’t believe the club currently have a coach because i have seen a team without a coach at all performing better than today’s performance, it’s really a sorry case.
      Though i was not expecting anything too good coming from because for years now, I have not seen my beloved Arsenal capitalising on any opportunity to close any gap. If any team ahead of us drops some point before we play our match, it is either we draw or lose our match, has anyone noticed that?
      The London fan can make their voices heard in the next home game if they truly want good change at club.
      I have supported Arsene wenger for so long but i think things are not just alright with him in charge.
      There must be change.

  4. Sue says:

    Distraught right now ?

  5. TheArsenalWay says:

    This club is a joke!

  6. Roehahn says:

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha…..We are a joke..
    Now I have seen everything Wenger, I’m ready,take me to VALHALLA..

  7. Lord Banter says:

    It just hurts too much. Where has my Arsenal gone?!

  8. Ah looks like we have added another bogey team to our already impressive local and international list! Oh well, certainly not going to lose any sleep over today’s’s probably one of the last nails Wenger’s coffin.

    1. Neo Malefane says:

      Our first loss to bournemouth doesn’t make them our bogey team. Do you even know what a bogey team is bru?

  9. Roy says:

    If Wenger doesn’t resign NOW, he needs to be sacked.

    1. Mehmet says:

      It’s not him it’s the board that needs to go.

      1. E. Anderson says:


        Even with this board in place, someone who knows what he is doing WILL DEFINITELY do a much better job with the players at this club right now!

        Mr. Arsene Wenger is done.

  10. JJT says:

    Wow! What have we become?! Embarrassment and shame is all I’m feeling right now! pitiful performance. All players need to hang their heads in shame

    1. E. Anderson says:

      All players bar a certain Jack Wilshere….

  11. Gelz says:

    Take the lead and in usual Arsenal fashion implode within 5 mins. How many points do we need to stay clear of relegation, because that’s the form we are showing.

  12. Gavana says:

    If Arsene Wenger is sacked, he will be employed as Real Madrid as a coach!

    1. John Wick says:

      Real Madrid U9s wouldn’t take Wenger ?

    2. RSH says:

      at some point your statement was true. Nobody wants this man anymore.

  13. Sue says:

    So not only have I just witnessed my team lose to Bournemouth… to hear that Sanchez is going to man United… then probably watch Liverpool beat city… absolutely gutted doesn’t even come close to how I’m feeling right now!

  14. Anko says:

    I was hoping we will win so that I can have some respite, but losing just makes everything worse. Am really sad o see who behind this team has come to

    1. Anko says:

      I mean, to say how behind this team has become

  15. Sandeep says:

    I think most of us here can cross better than Berlin.

    1. Neo Malefane says:

      I am sure you can’t. Just stick to your day job bru.

  16. Ivan says:

    Yet another embarrassing loss. How the AKB’s keep defending the dinosaur is beyond me. He has ruined Arsenal.
    S A C K Wenger NOW!?

    1. Rkw says:

      Ivan … Like all ignorant cowards they have gone quiet … But if we beat Chelsea in the league cup they will be back handing round the kool aid and talking up wenger’s long forgotten achievements … Once a junkie always a junkie

      1. Ivan says:

        I know you are right.

      2. Kenny Rolfe says:

        I honestly don’t think there’s many AKB’s left. It must be 99% now want him out. Today’s game was like a relegation battle, so many mistakes being made by both teams. We shouldn’t have to wait for the summer, Wenger should resign now. Loves Arsenal ? All this fraud loves is £9 million a year that his defrauding our club out of.

        1. Ivan says:

          Oh how I will celebrate when he does go Kenny.

          1. Kenny Rolfe says:

            I’ll celebrate with you Ivan, lets hope it’s soon. As i write this Liverpool have just scored. Let ’em win, we won’t make the top four,” Were invincible , you’re never do that”

          2. Kenny Rolfe says:

            Sorry “We’re invincible, you’ll never do that”

          3. Kenny Rolfe says:

            3-1 to Liverpool, you’ve gotta special to be invincible

          4. Ivan says:

            A bright spot in a bad day.

          5. Kenny Rolfe says:

            I can understand the fans that never saw the Invincibles wanting Liverpool to get beat but to the likes of us that drooled over players such as Bergkamp, Henry, Vieira, Pires etc staying as the only Invincibles in the modern game is extremely important

          6. Kenny Rolfe says:


          7. Ivan says:

            I’m with you Kenny.

      3. Neo Malefane says:

        Hey I want Wenger out just as much as you do but if we were to beat Chelsea you have to give credit where credit is due. If Wenger does well I am not scared to congratulate him. Its just too bad he rarely does things well. However his tactics last week at the bridge were very good. With that team Chelsea should have beaten us at least 2-0, but they didn’t even come close..which is down to Wenger’s tactics.

  17. Uzi Ozil says:

    Arsenal as a club are on their knees. Too many medicore players to challenge for top four and they’ve got a manager so far past his sell by date it’s embrassing
    It’s fair to say we are now an average team.

    Everyone is leaving the club. I fear we won’t make top four in a long while.

    Arsene just leave

    1. Neo Malefane says:

      I don’t thin we are an average side. We are a good side but just need a better manager. Ramsey, Wilshere, Kolasinac, Ozil, Sanchez would get in most premier league sides because they are that good. We just need a manger to improve the likes of Iwobi, Holding, Chambers, Bellerin, Mainland-Niles because these are the players with great potential. I honestly believe if you put these group of players in the the man city squad, they will just go another level. Therefore we just need a new manager who can develop these players. And I can’t think of any.

  18. Wolfgang says:

    How many times have Arsenal taken the lead only to lose? I believe it started many
    years ago but the fm didn’t bother .
    Something has to give otherwise Arsenal risk rotting in the wilderness.
    When the happens sponsors aint forthcoming and the coffers will lose a
    significant chunk of income.
    Enough is enough and this man is a danger to the good name of Arsenal.

    1. Neo Malefane says:

      Hahahah dude sponsers won’t stop sponsoring us just because we 6th now. What are you saying? Are Arsenal a shadow of what we used to be yes, but I don’t know how that’s going to affect our sponsors.

  19. arie82 says:

    That was the most garbage line up i ever seen, even tottenham have better line up.
    Not even single players that better tottenham in every positions, that so madness…..

    1. Neo Malefane says:

      Hey buddy don’t forget that wasn’t our best side! We have like 7 or 8 injuries. No Ramsey, No Monreal, No Koscielny, No Giroud, No Cazorla, I could go on. And yes many of our players would get into the spurs side. Ramsey is easily better than dier or sissoko, well whoever plays in their midfield. I would take Koscielny over Vertongen, even though koscielny has made quite a few mistakes this season. But with the team we had yesterday, there is no question that team should be beating the likes of Bournemouth.

  20. Gelz says:

    If this is Wenger’s way of adapting to life without Ozil and Sanchez by just throwing in a couple of inferior players and playing the same way, we are doomed.

    1. Neo Malefane says:

      Um I think he might replace them with other world class players like Draxler or Mkitarian.

  21. Gavana says:

    Take it easy Gooners! Happy days are around the corner!

  22. Dark Pope says:

    30 points behind man city after only 23 games. Surely has to be the worst season for decades.

    1. Sue says:

      Jesus that really is shit. I’ve lost all interest in my beloved arsenal…….?

    2. Mobella says:

      My one positive of the match is Wenger is one foot out.

      1. Welsh_Ramsey says:

        What makes you think that? This isnt our first time, nor the worst, we’ve been embarrassed and the board/owner didnt so much as make a statement. Like always it’ll all be brushed under the table and the club shambles merry-go-round will continue, atleast for another year while Wenger is contracted.

  23. TH14atl says:

    Hector, holding, Maitland-Niles, jack, Ramsey, Xhaka, welbz, Theo, old Cech, Mustafi, lacazette. This is who we finished the game with. People won’t spend money to watch this midtable team, and then and maybe only then, once the club starts losing money will something change.
    Been tryna tell folks that Chambers/Holding/Theo/welbz/jack/Ramsey weren’t good enough to push for the top, and look at the mid table team we’ve become.

    1. Elliot says:

      I thought jack played well. Agree with the rest though.

      1. TH14atl says:

        Jack was great. My point was more how long have we been waiting for Jack, Theo, Ramsey, etc to come good, and where has it gotten us?
        True talent shoulda been brought in that woulda moved them out as they underperformed. And now here we are.

        1. Elliot says:

          Totally agree. Ive got a soft spot for Jack because he seems to be the only player who loves Arsenal.

    2. Welsh_Ramsey says:

      Jack and Ramsey are the only 2 I dont agree with. Ramsey is our top assister and has been out injured for a month during our busiest period. Surround those 2 with quality instead of Iwobi, elneny, Coq (finally gone), ect and you’ll get more out of them. Xhaka should take the bench as well.

    3. Neo Malefane says:

      Hey this is not Fifa manager mode! You can’t just sell 10 players. And many of the players you mentioned are actually good. We just need a new manger! Simple!

  24. gmv8 says:

    All Kroenke’s fault – he kept Wenger on. I’m not sure what is going on in the club – it’s like they are committing suicide – tickets aren’t selling, players are being sold without being replaced, our rivals can saunter in and take our best players, there’s obviously huge problems behind the scenes, and yet the owner does nothing to protect his investment?

    1. Ivan says:

      Kroenke runs a stable full of failing teams. He is a revolting man who I just wish would f*ck off.

      1. Kenny Rolfe says:

        He doesn’t care Ivan, he don’t even know we played today

        1. Ivan says:

          I saw him on Sky Sports News the other day eating a hotdog and he had more interest in that.

    2. ivanolad says:

      I agree with you on this, it’s as simple as that……. it is kronke’s fault and many fans seems not to see it like that, if you work for a boss and he is not OK with your contribution for his office, that means he will not keep you but it’s not like that in Arsenal which means the owner is ok with the coach.
      The coach is obviously not getting it right again but the fans must all go against the so called owner and not wenger alone.
      I love wenger but he should go with kronke.

  25. Denopo. says:

    How much longer must we suffer. Wenger need to go so someone else can come in and rebuild our beloved club.

  26. Rit says:

    Manager is absolutely shameless….he can say that he loves arsenal by pledging not to take any salary till we are back in top four…otherwise it is sham on the loyal supporter’s

  27. Wolf says:

    Wenger fiddles while our club burns

  28. John Wick says:

    Don’t even get angry anymore what’s the point ? This team is bang average and one of the worst defence’s I’ve ever seen! The club has zero ambitions they only care about turning profits the club is a mess from top to bottom it pains me to say but the glory days are finished, I won’t even mention lord Wenger I don’t wanna offend anyone.

  29. Avenger says:

    I stopped watching Arsenal..

    We are a joke – a laughing stock.

    Wenger OUT!!!!

  30. Mehmet says:

    Shameful display for a arsenal team , not a clue, the board should sell immt, and we the true fans must force them to go, simple as that only we can do it.

  31. Me says:

    There he will be.
    Talking about learning from mistakes but never learning.
    Talking about disappointments
    Waffling about mental strength.
    When you see other clubs with under performing managers they sack them to improve the fortune of the club. Not at Arsenal.
    I am glad Bournemouth won – delighted in fact.
    And I will be delighted for Sanchez if he signs for Man United – what a step, to play for a big club in the CL – not some joke of a club from North London whose only priorities are to keep its owner in money and the blithering idiot as “manager”
    I never thought I would say this but I am beginning to dislike Arsenal – the board, management and players. There is nothing to like about them…

  32. Wolfgang says:

    Oh Arsenal had anumber of top guys injured.Even then after taking the lead,
    they lose as usual.
    Wenger shd in all honesty before he is fired.

  33. Arslan says:

    Worst last 30 minutes play by Arsenal I’ve seen… Only Wilshere & Bellerin were OK but OK don’t win us games especially when the rest were crap! Lacazette was crap! enough of “not enough support” excuses! That was d same excuse for Giroud too. Laca was brought in coz he’s supposedly can score on his own!

    1. E. Anderson says:

      Thank you for the courage to spell out your view on Lacazette.
      Most do not want to bash him, like I found out when I stated the same thing earlier… but truth be told: He seems one dimensional in his play, he should do more to create goals for himself otherwise he aint that much better than Giroud.

    2. Welsh_Ramsey says:

      Have you watched Laca? Hes having to drop deep just to receive the ball. Play to his strengths and give him good balls to run on to, instead of sideways passing while the other team get back and put numbers behind the ball.

  34. Gooner Craig says:

    Cech is past it and needs replacing! Bellerin can’t pass or cross! Xhaka is useless! Defending is just laughable at times!

  35. Sad Gunner says:

    Was Callum Smith a bit cheeky in his post match interview by saying he scored against a big club. We are certainly not one of those now. Seems to me we always give a leg up to struggling teams, Man City et al usually stuff them.

  36. Andrew says:

    Don’t worry lads and laddesses, it can only go so far down hill, and then one day Arsenal might be back to where they belong, but I cannot see that day arriving very soon – sad to say.

  37. Innit says:

    Very depressing innit
    Please for the love of God, get a new manager. He doesn’t know what he’s doing
    It’s beyond a joke now

  38. Gavana says:

    First time Arsenal finish below Tottenham in 21 years
    First time Arsenal finish below 4th in 21 years
    First time Arsenal knocked out in the 3rd round in 21 years
    If Wenger doesn’t leave now we will surely be relegated in the someday!

  39. Rit says:

    There is not a single player in the last 10 years who came to arsenal and under wenger improved a lot….look at sterling … it seems wenger does not any influence at all on the players or games..time to retire and dream of the invincibles

    1. Neo Malefane says:

      So Sanchez hasn’t improved? Didn’t he score 34 goals in all competitions last season. So you say Ozil hasn’t improved. Doesn’t he have the most assists and created the most chances since he arrived. What about bellerin. Didn’t wenger convert him into a fullback and didn’t he make the pfa team of the year a couple of seasons ago. I think I have made my point. Say what you want about wenger, his rubbish transfer policy or his rubbish tactics. But most footballers, not all but most footballers that have come to Arsenal have left a better player. So shut up Rit because you don’t know what you talking about.

  40. jon fox says:

    A superb day, since it makes Wengers sacking more likely. THAT IS NOW ALL THAT MATTERS. Anyone still worrying over us winning a trophy or top four this season, I hope you continue taking the medication, as we will need you fully cured to support our club next season when Mr Cancer Wenger is sacked. Keep your chin up, his end is really close now and to speed him on his way, pray for a defeat against Palace and against Chelsea. Lose both of those and that should achieve our aim. I am buzzing with excitement and am now counting his cancer ridden stay, in days and weeks, not months. If you really want to help, the best way possible, don’t go to games, keep up the campaign of derision on social media and ABOVE ALL, do not despair. I have personally beaten cancer twice in my own body and am determined to help our club beat it too, which we will.

    1. Tdg1944 says:

      Jon, I invariably agree with your analyses and your conclusions but I am afraid I have to make two points. 1) I am very pleased that you have managed to overcome cancer twice and it says a lot for your resilience. Well done and I wish you all health and happiness but I am sorry – I do not believe you should attach the label of “cancer” to a human being. 2) I really hope I am wrong on this but I do not believe Wenger will be sacked. He might, just about, resign but that will be at the cost of a seat on the board. If so I believe he will be a pernicious, meddling, critical, subversive and negative influence. I have never been so depressed about our club – not least that there are some fans who still support him. Let’s live in hope Jon.

  41. Shinoda says:

    I’ve been saying this time and time again, Arsenal is no longer a football club. Wenger has destroyed us big time & the owner & the board are the evil messengers. Some fans have let the club down as well by allowing the situation to get this far. That was just a preview of how shit we are without Sanchez & Ozil, no creativity, no pressing from the front… F**k!!! I’m so pissed at this crap of a manager & this shithole of a club. Can’t the fans just unite for once & say enough is enough. Only a very possessed fool would support the state of affairs of this club at the moment. God bless Arsenal football club.

  42. Twig says:

    I predicted a 1-0 loss for Arsenal. Seems I wasn’t too far off. What a shame.

  43. Ebny says:

    I like d fact that arsene fattened us for his first 10 yrs and has been leading us to the slaughter continously for the past 11-12 years. How worst can it get, it’s been such a long suffering, he should just kill us already

  44. Jakseth says:

    And it’s not even February. This year might actually be a good one.

  45. Mfenguboysa says:

    Arsene Wenger can kiss he’s beloved top goodbye!! There’s no way that arsenal can overtake Liverpool in their condition. Being an Arsenal fan today is very hurtful indeed

  46. Highbury44 says:

    Do any of you believe that when Wenger leaves the new manager will be given millions to spend and we will be again winning the Premiership.Please wake up and smell the coffee.At least we have won the title.Liverpool and Spurs on the other hand haven’t .The club won’t or can’t compete with the likes of the Manchester clubs and even Man U despite spending a fortunate since Fergie left .So stop moaning and accept that Arsenal are struggling and will probably do so for a few years to come but will eventually will come good

    1. Ivan says:

      @ Highbury 44
      It is AKB’s like you who are happy with us doing badly that so annoy. How can you be happy to see us do so badly?

      1. Highbury44 says:

        I have supported this club before you were born so I have seen the good times and bad.So I can accept the club is going through a bad spell and will eventually turn the corner .Its called being patient

        1. Ivan says:

          You are a more patient man than me. I ran out of patience in 2011 when Utd stuck 8 past us. How many years of embarrassment before you want change? It is over 10 already.

          1. Highbury44 says:

            As I have already mentioned neither Liverpool or Spurs have one the title for over 25 years are they constantly moaning about their team.No they are supporting their teams come what may

          2. Ivan says:

            You don’t even get it do you? You are happy just to turn up buy a shirt, eat your hotdog and go home no matter whether we win or lose.
            Proper fans burn inside when we lose.

          3. Neo Malefane says:

            No proper fans support their team whether they win or lose. You are a fickle fan, including you Sue, and jon fox. All of you!

          4. Ivan says:

            And you are a sheep who is clearly not capable of seeing the bigger picture. Baah!

          5. Highbury44 says:

            So you want success and titles .Go and support Man city

          6. Ivan says:

            The usual AKB cry of go and support another club if you will not bend to our will and start supporting Wenger. Pathetic!!!
            I have a better idea. As you don’t care whether we win or lose YOU go and support another club or even start your own club call it Arsene FC and go and support that. You are certainly no loss as a fan.

          7. Admin says:

            So you complain about someone saying go support another team, then you say exactly the same thing. Come on Ivan, get real….
            We are all Arsenal fans and everyone’s opinion is valid whether you like it or not.
            Two wrongs don’t make a right!

          8. Ivan says:

            I should have known AKB in chief would respond.
            So you expect me to just say yes sir whatever you say sir when an AKB says go support another team. How come you never say anything to the AKB’s?
            You are a very biased admin!

          9. Admin says:

            Both of you were wrong. In fact I am not an AKB, but you give that label anyone that disagrees with you all the time.
            I am an Arsenal supporter, and I agree Wenger’s time is up. That is obvious….
            But I still believe every other Arsenal fan is entitled to their own opinion.

          10. Welsh_Ramsey says:

            Wow didnt know wanting your club to be ran properly meant you have to go support another club… Thats a pretty sad excuse. Ivan has just as much of a right to demand a change in the club as you have to stay silent and remain patient. in fact, all fans who give up their money and time have a right to question the club.

          11. Ivan says:

            Thank you @ Welsh Ramsey.

        2. jon fox says:


        3. Phil says:

          Be patient?You are as deluded as Wenger.I pray for the day he is out and all those AKB fools go with him

      2. Mobella says:

        Quit the naming calling and give chance to other people opinion. He saw it as bad spell and you saw it differently and Stan who is in the best position to sack him gave two years extension. Besides what have we achieved with all this Wenger batching on this site.

    2. Adam Criniti says:

      Unless Kroenke sells the club THIS is the new AFC

      Honestly what WC players would want to play for the 3rs best club in London without Champions League football and a $8M caretaker impersonating as manager.

      This has Newcastle United written all over it sadly.

  47. skies says:

    does anyone feels that Lacz is not feeded enough.. he loves running off the shoulder, but doesn’t get the ball.. in the end he was so frustrated that he was playing in midfield.. passing the balls..

    this tiki-taka doesn’t suit us anymore.. we need good players for that.. now we are at Everton’s level.. hope we don’t do a leeds unitef

  48. Trudeau says:

    In other news, Malcom tells his representative s to get on the next plane back to France…

  49. Marty says:

    Wenger has completely mishandled the entire Sanchez saga which is surprising for a man of his experience and intelligence. If he lets M.U. sign Sanchez then that really is taking the piss.

    1. E. Anderson says:

      …and a gooner’s nightmare be Man U…is it????

    2. AB says:

      Here goes another AKB calling wenger intelligent. Wake up dude.

  50. Gunnerforlife says:

    We need new MANAGER right now !!! ? Our tactical really obsolete

  51. kayboy says:

    Where are blind fans that kept believing in wenger? This club is doomed already.

  52. Sumant The Gooner says:

    Finally most of the fans are uniting. Thumbed up almost all the comments today. For me this season doesn’t matter anymore. I still watch the games, just to watch. I don’t get angry, I don’t get sad and I don’t get frustrated. I just don’t have any expectations from the team this season. I hope I don’t become Wenger and settle for mediocrity. Wenger please leave with whatever grace you’re left with.

  53. Rkw says:

    Chamberlain must be thanking his lucky stars

  54. Guneal says:

    Chamberlain just scored…..

  55. Elliot says:

    Nice one ox. Hope city lose lol

  56. mickmematethrmasterfarter says:

    old man cech,slow man xhaka,poormans vandijk holding on & on its a shambles

  57. Peterhos says:

    I have only two comments. Firstly Jack Wilshere is mediocre. Secondly, it only takes one season to get back into the top four. Look at Leicester. But we need new players, organisation and some proper tam spirit. Anyone else think we have no leader at the back. Too many overpaid and so mediocre players …

    1. Rkw says:

      Wilshire was the one bright spot getting back to his best but zero quality around him …xhaka Ramsey welbeck bellerin Iwobi mainland Niles etc … We have no hope until wenger and the greedy yank leave …

      1. Kenny Rolfe says:

        You’re right, Jack was our best player by a mile, and I agree what you said about the others, but not the kid., AM-N is going to be an excellent player, it’s Wenger playing him completely out of position, I mean full back’s bad enough but left full back is ridiculous. The dinosaur is ruining the kid’s career before it gets started

    2. AB says:

      Seems like your subtle way of supporting wenger. Nothing matters as long as he is there.

  58. Andcliff says:

    You take out Ozil & Sanchez what are you left with? Rudderless mediocrity.

    Whoever takes over from Wenger has a huge job on his hands so the sooner he goes the better. We have a rubbish defence, a flaky midfield and a non-existent attack and we are going to finish in the top 4? At best we will be a distant 6th. and Wenger will still be there.

    I agree with your main comment, we don’t know how to win anymore. I used to defend AW because of what he has done for AFC but he should have gone 4 years ago and not selfishly dragged the team to it’s current position. What is sad is that he never blames himself, it’s always bad refereeing decisions or the team. He is a stubborn man who is hurting our club and doesn’t seem to care.

  59. Ox says:

    Joke of a club get out wenger idiot

  60. Abu says:

    looking for s**t hole?
    Arsenal is worst.
    Absolutely pathetic.
    The club is going down hill, the worst part is, no body cares. Except the fans.

    1. AB says:

      Not sure about the fans, don’t be surprised if SamP and some other fans like him write an article praising wenger soon. AKBs are as responsible for this state as is wenger, gazidis and kroenke.

  61. Brad says:

    Arsenal is a big club.
    Wenger is a big joke.
    The Club is a big joke under Arsene Wenger.

  62. kayboy says:

    Wenger why are you doing this to us? PLEASE LEAVE!!!

  63. Aligunners says:

    I watch Ox score then ask myself
    When was the last time arsenal got a good player from any of our rivals
    The last time I checked vardy rejected arsenal

  64. The man has to be sacked tonight.
    Bould useless puppet.

  65. KaTs says:

    Keep Wilshere, Sanchez and Özil. Sell all the other “players” and manager. Or let Wilshere, Sanchez and Özil leave and Arsenal play in the Championship for a change.

  66. Ronny says:

    A glimpse without sanchez and ozil very little creativity or cutting edge! Wenger needs to buy two quality players this window just to avoid complete embarrassment this season.
    Ox scoring for pool says it all good.for.him leaving to join a club with personality winning mentality and a stadium and fans to equal a gladiators arena.

  67. Tom says:

    Not surprised at all!! What supposedly top 4-6 team with any ambition to win the league or trophy gets 2 players in a summer transfer window and makes a profit??? Last summer window we sell 5-6 players get two in and make £20million in profit.. any chance of resigning Sanchez / Ozil was lost in the summer window when we showed no ambition!! Now we are selling Sanchez and Ozil the only genuine world class players we have and talking about replacing with promising kids?? No ambition at all from the top down all about being a profitable club!!! Defence is a shamble before we sold 2 defenders in the summer window and didn’t replace!!!

  68. Oswald Carbonaro says:

    Bonaroca:; I have been a Mr Wenger admirer, but I think that the board should with immediate
    effect ask him to”as they say” except a positing upstairs and look after the running affairs of the club or prudently ask him to resign. Let’s put it this way, after 21 years, its about time for a change and this is the right time because a new manager could assess all his present players.
    What is very evident is the weakness of the forwards ???
    Why,because talented players are playing out of there position and secondly, because, I am a great admirer of Willie Meisl who used to say show me your half back line which technically does not exist with Mr Wenger and I will show what a team you have. Obviously, Mr Wenger in years past had that option of Petit and Vieira but has’nt learnt anything from their great
    midfield displays to continue to introduce with this present Arsenal team.
    Well, I hope Arsenal will get a top Manager for a replacement and win the Europe Copa.

    1. AB says:

      How can you still want wenger to stay at the club in any role. Please get away for your blind faith. He should be sacked and asked to stay as far away from the club as possible.

  69. Hernan says:

    It’s to funny to see that nobody said nothing about the poor performance of Cech? He’s not making any impact from the day that he arrived .

    1. Sue says:

      Chelsea sold us a donkey

      1. Hernan says:

        I keep saying from day one Cech good time was over or nobody remember that He was bought by Arsenal when he was on Chelsea Bench ?

        1. Sue says:

          I don’t rate him, he’s too old but Arsene loves him

      2. ivanolad says:

        wenger was so foolish to have sold scjesny to juventus.

  70. Ronny says:

    and to top off everytime I look at my Arsenal calendar I’m looking at a photo of Sanchez for January about right! God we’ve been c*ap for ages but we’re setting new records by getting beating by teams who never beat us.
    Massively pleased for Wilshire who was great today but the rest of them shocking!!

  71. Ronny says:

    Please please please man city buy him can’t stick Jose or MU. City are already strong where are MU are closer to us why strengthen them?

    1. Harish says:

      Do you really think we are close to Man u..??! We are not part of the big six now.. it’s only top 5 now…without Sanchez and Ozil..we are just an average side..!!

  72. GB says:

    Supported THE Arsenal since the 60s, through good and bad, far worse than this, but not seen such a terrible bunch of so called ‘fans’ ever in my history of being a Gooner. Call yourselves fans, no, you are pathetic.

    1. Highbury44 says:

      Totally agree.

    2. Tom says:

      What because we want to see our club successful? Because we don’t support mediocre? It’s the owner (not an Arsenal man) and Wenger who we are showing contempt too not our club!! It’s because we love our club that we say enough is enough!! What do you suggest happens??

      1. Highbury44 says:

        But we have been successful winning 3 Fa cups in the last 4 years.What you mean is winning the title each year as being successful.That is unlikely to happen even if you change the manager and spend spend spend.Man u have done that for the past few years without success.So what do want to happen to get this success you are looking for?

        1. Tom says:

          Those Fa Cup wins were good as far as winning sillverware but ultimately were papering over the cracks. All though a piece of silverware the competition has sadly lost its importance over the years… Premier league / champions league and even the Europa league cup have more importance!!

          Yes Man Utd spent millions over the last few Windows with no success but city spent millliins too!! City were nobodys when it came to history and silverware until the Sheikhs bought them back in 2008/9?? Chelsea were average for last 15-20 yrs until Abromavitch bought them and invested and they started to win back to back league titles!! So just shows you investment gets results!!

          What we need is a new manger with new ideas / fresh impetus / not affriaid to change things tactically in games / subs before 70mins / stop rewarding mediocre players with contracts and get drop them / get rid / and have the balls in the transfer market to spend some money with the owners to back him who don’t sit their rubbing their hands with the profits we make in sales etc the each year!!

    3. Tdg1944 says:

      As you clearly want to play “mine is bigger than yours” I have supported this club since the early fifties and whilst we have had lean periods during that time we have never been this disorganised, on and off the field, so alienated as a fan base or treated so contemptuously by the absent landlord. Have you not noticed that you are now in a minority of something like less than ten per cent? Do you honestly believe that you possess some wonderful insight that opponents of this regime do not have? How , from a football or even business perspective, can you condone this extraordinary situation regarding allowing players to run down their contracts. Most, if not all, of the pundits and ex-players have now publicly expressed their bewilderment at this. Perhaps you feel this people are wrong too?

  73. Joelreuz says:

    Is it just me or is Wenger bent on destroying the club I love just as he is destroying his legacy? Am talking long term-making-it-disastrous for the next manager.

  74. Harish says:

    I really don’t know what kind of contribution does Welbeck makes to this team..!!! Why is he even in the 11..why is Iwobi in the 11.. why is Walcott in the 15…why do I feel it is better we perform this way for the rest of the season…so that the manager will change…???

    1. Tom says:

      We have gone from Sanchez , Ozil and lacca too welbeck (injury prone Utd reject) and Iwobi as our 1st team front 3……….sad times!!

  75. geegunner says:

    kronke and wenger have to go asap,its so obvious hes not got a clue how to get the team to be winners anymore,usimnof please one mor huge push an buy kronke out of our club,get a world class manager in with at least 4/5 world class players in an get this club back where it belongs,challenging for titles an excellent attacking football,and no loner a money cash cow for mr kronke.

  76. GB says:

    Pool spanking City so we are 8 points off 4th, therefore fecked!

  77. Elliot says:

    Liverpool looking more and more deadly each week.

  78. Mobella says:

    Our tittle as the only invincible club in EPL is intact. Liverpool is currently whipping mancity 4 – 1

  79. Ronny says:

    I said closer to MU not close!
    And one win and a loss from them and we’re closer still so no need to be so dramatic.
    I’m amazed people are acting surprised we’ve all known for ages our top are leaving and seen how inafectual we are without them.
    One ot two things will happen if we continue to lose well be forc3d to make big changes and buy new players great news! Or Wenger will leave and a new manager will come also great news!
    Our club needs a fresh enthusiastic leader with a budget to spend sooner the better for me.

  80. Ronny says:

    Ox scoring answ assisting shows what he can do under another manager. Watch walcott flourish under a new manager also!

    1. Neo Malefane says:

      I am sorry 3 goals in 30 appearances doesn’t equal an improved player. Nketiah is just as good as ox and he never plays for us.

  81. GB says:

    At least we are still THE invincibles.

  82. Lexynal says:

    At least….there will be NO other INVINCIBLES!

  83. Liverpool is winning because they have no primadonna get rid of ozil and Sanchez bring in some young excited energetic player

  84. Lexynal says:

    Liverpool 4 – Man City 1:
    At least….there will be NO other INVINCIBLES! Not for now……Still proud of our record. Up Arsenal!

    1. AB says:

      Dude get past the 13 year old record. If this is your way of supporting wenger after today’s defeat I pity you.

      1. Lexynal says:

        Dude ….Arsenal comes before Wenger. Coaches come coaches go ….records and achievements remain with the club. Be happy dude

  85. Lexynal says:

    Honestly…you cannot loose to Watford, Stoke & Bourmouth in one season…this is Arsenal..NOT acceptable!

  86. heidi leigh says:

    What we saw today has been coming for a long time. Old tactics, average players and a manager who is well pass his sell by date. However he hangs on like a bad smell and doesn’t think that the club could survive without him. When I said in the past that he was yesterdays man and that this bunch of players were at best average, I was tld I was a plastic supporter and that I should go and support City or Chelsea. Well, that pile of manure that we we served up today. proves how far we have dropped, what sensible professional would want to come to us, now?

    1. Ivan says:

      Spot on Heidi

  87. AB says:

    Please, please, please, people show up with big banners at the emirates to get rid of wenger and kroenke…changes may still not happen but at least still do our bit…

  88. mysty says:

    the curse of the sky blue kit continues….

  89. Gbengress says:

    We need a new coach. See how Ox is playing for pool. The problem is the coach not the players

    1. Novbe says:

      Anyone thinks the ox has improved on his crosses?

      1. Neo Malefane says:

        The ox hasn’t improved in general. 3 goals in 25-30 appearances. Wow what a great player. Hasn’t Kolasinac scored more than him.

    2. Neo Malefane says:

      The ox is still weak! I think kolasinac even has more goals than him!

  90. Joe says:

    Why is everybody so angry as if we were going to win anything this season? I said in the beging of tge season were arw headinf nowhere and guys game a thumls down now some are dying of heart attacks. Relax guys we shall finish 8. I stopped getting angrt last season. Wat h sanchez winning stuff while we are still waiting for wenger to finish his contract. RVP, Nasri, Ces all left and won.

  91. Adeyemi Royalman says:

    Lacasette is not good enuf no apology. Bellerin is so poor in d wing, even with Sanchez n ozil wat have we got this season, Czech is now old man lol, whisere getting good but not enuff, our team is average. Above all our manager should go now My new slogan ” fire Wenger”

  92. Shinoda says:

    Going to the stadium with banners won’t solve much. As long as money is coming in, it doesn’t matter whether the banners are out. Just stop attending the matches & stop purchasing merchandise. Empty seats & dead stock will be enough to send a message to those at the top.
