blaming the fans -.- not himself.
+4
He does say that the uncertainty about his own future has also played a part in it. But it's not a great move from him, he should have sticked to political-speak and not saay anything significant about it.
It's undeniable though, that playing under those circumstances, with virtually no support, must've been pretty sh*ty for everyone at the club including the players.
+1
As someone who has been to the Emirates many times, I can vouch for that shitty atmosphere.

It has been utterly toxic at times, it has felt empty despite filling almost all of the 60k seats.

The problem is that it will only ever get worse while he is here. Even if Arsenal win the FA cup next weekend I can guarantee that half the stadium will boo the moment we lose a game, even if it is only by one goal.



There is no ammo to strengthen the team now. Big names will go after a CL team or big money (like Ibra and Pogba last year) or a top manager, proven in recent years (Allegri, Simeone).
We have none of these qualities right now, meaning we will have to rely on current squad and youngsters. At the same time top 4 and ManU will be definitely enforced.
That said, and I hope to be wrong, 6th place is probably a realistic target next season.
+2
Don't know what some fans are whining about i thought they hated the top 4,for years they kept complaining that the top 4 was not that important, now that we missed it they are even madder lol.

Arsenal fans need to stick come low or high and stop falling for the negativity of social media, can't they see how happy rival fans are happy we didn't make the top 4, they first mocked us for achieving it for so many years, now they are jubilant we didn't make it.

Lesson to Arsenal fans
stand by your club
+1
stand by for the same bs every year? If things don't change its gonna be europa league goals next season.
+2
I don't mind being in the Europa league, I think its more our level at the moment. We always go out at R16 in the champions league and we are evidently not at the same level as RM, Barca/Bayern/Juve etc.

Recent EL winners include teams like Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla and from what I've seen of the EL teams this year, Arsenal have a good shot of beating those teams.

Plus it would be quite satisfying if we were to win it at the first attempt where Spurs have failed so frequently.

Also, on a side note, failing to make the top4 might just force Kroenke's hand to invest a bit more in the squad (or feck off altogether and let Usmanov have a crack at running the club).
+2
FA CUP CMOOOOON YOU GUNNERS!!!!! LETS DO THIS AGAIN!!!

its gonna be hard against chelsea.. but it will feel soooo sooo sooo sweeet beating them!

is koscielny band for the match?? dammmit!!!!

Yes Koscielny banned and Gabriel probably injured. We either go Mustafi-BFG-Holding or go back to a 4231 formation.
s**t! no way no 4 2 3 1 we need the extra defense.
Yeah probably butthis back 3 is very experimental for a final against Chelsea. It's a sh*tty situation no matter what.
Heyyyy guys. Have a fun summer!
+2
*grabs popcorn*
+4
Thanks. Have fun in Wembley......
Thanks. Have fun in Wembley next season
you have a fun summer too. Im sure even you guys are allowed to be happy once in like forever ;) :P
+2
lol

fair enough
Let him have this one, he's only been waiting 20-odd years.

I'm going down to Seven Sisters for the "finished above Arsenal" open-top bus parade, so I WILL be having a fun summer.
Barcelona losing out on the title made me really happy at least. Can't stand the glory hunters that support that s**t awful club.
+5
lol ... s**t awful ... How ?
+2
Ehh...it's just a bit of blind hatred on my behalf. Just realllllyyyy hate that club with a passion.

Great football, but some of the most despicable fans I have seen. Massive narcissists.

Look at what their players do to earn PKs - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-nrQd_clCs - this was yesterday!
+5
Lol let it all out. You've been holding it in for about 5 years, must have built up a mountain inside you.
+1
I don't care either way, it had to be either of those teams, we all knew that. It's not every season that a Leicester or an Atletico or a Wolfsburg wins a title.
Dan you sound silly. How is happiness possible when Spurs trashing teams and finishing 11 points above us?

The heat is rising and the summer will be hot! Let the games begin.
+5
Good thing HBO moved GOT to summer time :D
+2
After losing the league Messi will now announce his retirement from club football...for the Summer
+2
guys hows our injury status ? any thoughts ?
+1
should be okish if alexis is fit. kos will be missed
can play monreal, mustafi, holding back 3.
+2
question - Lets say you are the new manager. What would you do? Players in players out etc
is there any chance arsene will get sacked? does anyone believe he will retire? there's been zero news about contacting other managers or anything else, i think the entire world already knows the outcome.
I would thank Liv so much if AW is no longer be our manager because of us finishing 5th
+1
Bring in lukaku and isco but I'm dreaming
Keep:
Cech, Ospina
Nacho, Holding, Koscielny, Mustafi, Bellerin, Gabriel
Ox, Xhaka, Alexis, Iwobi, Campbell, Santi, the Jeff & Niles
Welbeck, Giroud

Offload:
Wenger
Szczęsny
Gibbs, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Jenkinson
Ozil, Ramsey, Walcott, Elneny, Coq, Lucas, Wilshere
Sanogo

Transfer in:
Kolasinac & Van Dijk, and a RB
CM Isco/Sigurdsson, Wings Zaha/Josh King, DM Busquets/Matuidi/Idrissa Gueye
Greizmann/Aguero/Benzema/Mbappe (top finisher with different attributes but complimentary to Giroud if played together)
Pls forgive my lack of knowledge of players from other leagues.
sorry about greizzman, isco, busquet kinda signing, we won't land them. We used to have advantage on landing top players with our beautiful football and CL involvement. But those were the days. Maybe weather ?

@ shaymoose, i will rather keep lucas and elneny and sell Welbeck. Sometimes u be wondering why ozil hasn't got many assist. Look at how welbeck miss just now before bellerin scores, it's a simple tap in and he missed !!! Look at how he miss before alexis scored against city at wembley. These are some simple chances that he should score. There are still many more i am lazy to dig out. I agree with your 'out' list though
+3
I have my doubts about those players as well, but at the end of the day some of our current players are the attractions and not the competitions Or lack thereof that we are in. United got Pogba, mikhi, and zlatan while being in Europa...

I get what you say about welbeck. I do. Thing is, he gets in those positions and lets not forget the time he was out injured. we know players don't just bounce back with the snap of a finger. Ozil...I'm sick of his attitude deciding when he wants to play and when he doesn't feel like it. I'm sorry but his defensive workrate is a bad influence on the rest of the team and when he's smothered in games it's very hard for him to resurface, imo.

I'd keep lucas and elneny if we can't find replacements, but they cant seem to be slotted into a wenger team for some reason. New manager, I'd be ok with keeping those players.
to be honest, i am so sad to see Arsenal stumble. sigh... Used to love watching football because of arsenal and now I kinda disinterested with football because of how we perform in recent season. TBF i only watch arsenal when i watch football, have no interest on other football game even the international level


United can afford to pay some stupid money though, not us. u do know how much zlatan and pogba earn right ? And even that kid lingaard (i think so) get 100k per week, who the F is that ? LOL
who is lingard?

he's the academy product that's scored a goal in the last 3 appearances at wembly for a trophy. First goal in the community shield (which was the winner), second goal in the EFL cup (we won 3-2), and winning goal in ET while a man down in last season's FA cup final.
SIF that doesn't justify his wages though. I knew you'd throw the wages at me (diontan) lol and I know it's true. I try to believe that footballers follow their hearts and not the money but I know that's not the majority of players by any stretch.

Try to enjoy football for what it is man! Honestly, I've loved watching spurs play more than us this year b/c that's real football. Sucks huge balls to actually have to say that, but it's true. If you don't play any fantasy premier league, you should, it'll get you more interested in other teams and the sport as a whole, unless you let it get too serious! lol
Even if a new man comes in, you have to keep your expectations realistic here. You a lot of dead weight and no UCL football with the pressure of making top 4 and probably going all out in EL if all things fail like Mou is doing atm. No easy task at all.

Everything won't be fixed in one window, so I think at max 4-5 players out and maybe 4-5 players in, but that's pushing it.

Out: Opsina, Theo Walcott, Ramsey, Sanchez (he will leave), Gibbs, BFG, Jenkinson, Debuchy, Giroud.

In:
Kolasniac (free),
Lemar (AS Monaco),
Mahrez (Leceister),
Cesc Fabregas (Cheslea) Why not? He loves the club, and one of the most creative CM in the PL. I can't see a better Santi replacement that you guys can realistically sign apart from him. It will be even better if Santi is fit and he joins the team.
Patrick Schick (Sampdoira): Might be Juve bound but his a real talent. You guys were linked with him, really impressive lad, who's still only 21.
we have a good team, the key thing in summer is to convince them to stay.
clean up the average players in squad and give all of their wages(500k-600k) to alexis :D.

our main priority should be the striker. Other top teams have great strikers in the team while we are stuck with donkeys.

keep - cech/sczesney/martinez
sell - ospina
sign - none

keep - nacho/holding/chambers/kos/mustafi/bellerin/gabriel
sell - Per, Debuchy, jenkinson, gibbs
sign - kolasinac

Keep - Xhaka, Ramsey, Ox, Santi, Coquelin, maitland-niles
sell - wilshere, elneny(?)
sign - some one like santi/ramsey but who wont breakdown

Keep - ozil, Alexis, Iwobi, Jeff
sell - walcott, campbell
sign - some one like isco

Keep - welbeck/giroud
sell - sanogo, lucas(?)
sign - some one good

The key for next season is to get the best out of our squad.
@SIF, still not worth 100k but it's subjective. Maybe in your opinion any unknown kid pops out and score goal in final worth that money but that's not the case at arsenal. Giroud, kos and santi who are so important to the club earn less than that i think, or roughly that amount.
not worth it to you or arsenal, but we're paying fellaini and ashley young as much or more, so that's why lingard is getting that amount. that's what our squad players earn.
The wages depend from club to club and you cant say "Its not worth 100k" - thats how man utd work, are known for paying high wages for a long time now and players demand it. FFS we kept Bastian earning 250k a week on the reserves for half a season... Rooney, Pogba etc earn 300k a week. In such an environment its hard to pay anyone 50k and expect them to play their hearts out.

Man Utd doesnt have the london social life or weather so the club evens that out by providing players with high wages. Otherwise not many will be ready to play in Manchester
And that is why I said arsenal cannot pay like united.
Get ready for thursday nights! All banter towards Man U and Spurs for being there, now we will suffer that banter..

I am so done with this season.. Lets move on.. Crazy summer coming up. I hope Kroenke will be out, Usmanov comes in with David Dein and fix this mess at last.
+2
If we cannot pay like man utd then forget about top player coming. Don't think dein and usmanov can do anything
If Kroenke sell his shares to Usmanov, Usmanov will have control of the board..
Will that fella spend crazy money on like man utd ? I dont think so
He can... We dont need to spend crazy though, we just need to be competitve and competent in the market.. He can provide that.. We cannot lowball transfer fees like we did with Suarez.
Also Usmanov actually fan of Arsenal and know thing or two about football.. I dont think Kroenke understand shiit about football..
What will be wenger aftermatch speech..for the mercato it will be; we have money but we have a great team!!
+1
FFarewell wenger !! May this be your last game at the emirates
+3
I hope its not.
+1
well believe it or not, wenger is our biggest problem. His lame excuse did not work this time, he had spent enough in recent season. Our net transfer exceed 100 mil. We have such a strong squad this season yet we not even improving. I do believe this squad is strong enough to challenge the PL. At least we have better squad then spurs and liverpool (look at their bench players). It's easy to say spurs have stronger team now, but I have seen everyone here writing them off at the beginning of the season especially when they play CL, just admit it u don't expect them to finish so much point ahead of us. It's really terrible, the board should learn from mistake and not extending AW again. Stan whoever he is, can get the fvck out if he has no money for next manager to spend. Just let go of the share and allow usmanov to take over. And AW, bye ... Treat this win at home as a trophy and leave with a high note. I don't expect shiit from him at wembley.
