too bad wenger would never go for berahino in january... he thinks we are stocked now, he is such a clinical finisher.
Too early to jump on the berahino bandwagon imo. He hasn't played a full season of football. We have all seen one season wonders. Remember michu?? He was all the hype. Now its pelle and berahino.
+1
Berahino was a great talent for some time now, all though now seems to be his break through season
+1
Reminds me of Defoe.

Edit: I think he's proven quality. Spurs will snap him up within a season or 2. We already have strikers close enough to his age who will one day become stars.

did you guys see this?

All the people in the comments going "Chelsea can do it". Lol

Every 5 years a team comes along that's clearly much better than everybody else in the league. But only one of them managed to go unbeaten.
I remember Man City in beast mode a few season ago and they started out the same way but eventually lost.

Edit: It was their 2012-13 season. They finally lost their 16th game to United.
The media unnecessarily likes putting the pressure of "invincibles" or "treble winners" on the best teams every single season.

Doesn't mean it will happen, and i doubt anyone at Chelsea cares after only 8 games.
Theo. what u doing over the Chelsea forum?
Berahino is one clinical player, puts away with ease.
Berhaino you BEAST
+4
what a goal for wba
And they laughed at us:p
In football we don't brag, stay humble and be hopeful. This is to prevent being a joke later.
How to make things awkward? (Martinez at the end of the "Bellerin goes back to School" video)
Back to the Wenger out debate, i don't see anybody out there that would be viable replacement, most of the big coaches are team tied, and we would need someone to be here long term to build in their philosophy, not a quick fix, and three years later gone, that is if they are successful, imo i think wenger should be replaced by one of the invincibles, we should follow barca's example of hiring former successful players to coach the team, i believe the players would respond positively to a former legend coaching them, than someone who doesn't understand our philosophy, it is pity that Wenger doesn't have a prodigy we could look to, in the event he leaves :<

FYI I am not in the wenger out group, i believe is still the man to get the right players to build a great successful team down the road, even though i disagree with him tactically alot of times, i just wish he was more flexible.
+2
I will see what he bring at the end of the season, then we will come back about this. Sacking him now is not an option, give him some time at this stage, we are not too far behind from 4th place. We all know what he is capable of - THE 4TH place. However i don't see the hope of EPL and don't expect achievement in CL. I would not mind repeat of Fa cup glory, but that depends on the draw.
+2
'Give him some time' with all respects Diontan the man has had enough time. The reason why I always say I want him out because I know he will never change, he has got too much pride to change his out of date ways. Sometimes you just gotta let go regardless of the past.
+1
We can even win the league at this this point, too early to predict anything. Chelsea can collapse, they collapsed in the end last season. It is the second half of the season that matters more. And can totally change the picture.
If we wanna talk about possibilities, of course we have chance to win anything. Their players can flop at the end of the season, our reserve players can turn out to be messi, ronaldo, zlatan blah blah blah. However by speaking realistically, that won't happen. It's 11 point behind now, they have so much depth and qualities on field and on bench while we are still struggle with injuries, lack of depth in defense. If we stay in top 4 by January, i will be pleased.
+4
If you ask about options end of the season...There is Diego Simeone who could be tempted with an offer...but he will surely change the style and philosophy you guys love.

Best thing about him is..He knows what it takes to beat big teams. And all title winning sides mostly take max points out of big teams...IMO winning a title in La-liga against Real and Barca with the resources he has was one hell of an achievement

+1
No really, Chelsea did collapse last season. Everyone talks about us leading the campaign till the new year, but in the last 10 games, Chelsea had the easiest fixtures and looked likely to win, but they did not. 12 points is just 4 games. Now this early in the season when we have new additions and injuries its not reasonable to blame the manager. We have quality in the first team and the bench. Look at the names and their talent. We just need to gel.
ok
+2
Guardiola would be good.. At least AVB) Anyway Wenger is the best, hope he stays, until he decide to retire himself
@Viper, well at this point do u think manager like simeone, pep guardiola, klopp and whatever manager u think it's good to replace AW will leave their club to manage Arsenal?? Do you think they willing to come and clean up the mess?? No, anything will only happen at the end of the season. Sacking the boss NOW will only leave us weaker and more exposed, or do u want steve bould to be interim ? He won't be any better. I agree with changes in management/manager, but only if we found a right one, and definitely not NOW.

Mate, We will have to wait until end of the season, i still believe AW has the abilities to bring us into TOP 4, you cannot expect much from AW.
I guarantee u regardless of where we finish at the end of the season Wenger will still be managing the club. As I said a while before, the biggest challenge in Arsenal's history will be getting rid of Wenger.

Wenger is not leaving at the end of the season. They will let him see out his contract like he always does. Would not mind Simone Klopp or Guardiola
no one say he is leaving at the end of season, all im saying is the fans CAN ONLY EXPECT CHANGES AT THE END OF SEASON. I still doubt he will be gone by the way.
Personally I think that anyone who has dedicated 2 decades of their life(as long as some of you have been alive!) to our club and has built so much of our club, has earned the right to retire when HE chooses to. Every other club complains that they keep changing managers, we're the only ones who complain that we don't.
I can just imagine how some of you would feel if you worked at a company for 20 years, consistently despite heavy resource restrictions, devoting your life and got your ass canned. Let's see how fair you think it is then. It's pretty easy to sit on the couch and say these things when most of you have done nothing more for the club than buy a few jerseys and some of you have been alive for less time than he's dedicated to the club.
I understand your point mate but unfortunately it's happening in exchange of our success and happiness. He's been amazing and no one can deny that but recent record speaks for itself. There's always a time when great things come to an end and this is long overdue.

I don't want to be the guy that always brings this up but I don't understand how one could disagree, it's acknowledged all around the world that this man has changed the PL and Arsenal significantly but most importantly the PL has changed dramatically in the last decade and still he refuses to change his ways. Buy what's needed, change what's needed. You have all the resources you could possibly have, make the difference that's all I'm asking.
+1
That I can understand Viper but honestly mate, I'm 33 now and I've got to say, as you get older, years seem less and less long and so I'm content to let the man see out his contract and honour what he's done for our beloved club.

As others have said, there aren't many good replacements available who could work with the board's tight budget, I'd wait till we really have some spending power to change managers as it will cause more disruption in the club than most people think. Our entire style of play may change as a result and that takes more than just 1 season to achieve, look at the lack of patience towards AVB from Chelsea and Spurs fans for example.
+1
...I feel old ;(
Poldi's response to the odd rumor linking him with a 10 million January move to Tottenham is haliriours.

Lol is that really him? haha fantastic...
why on earth will he leave ffs !
lack of game time.
to make room for someone more consistent
DId anyone else who watch the match think Campbell wasn't all that impressive? He missed a chance in the box and gave away the ball a lot, sometimes in bad positions. I felt that it was a good situation for him to get playing time because of the lack of other options, his pace, and his energy. I think he played as a good substitute but he didn't convince me that he should be starting - which I feel a lot of people are jumping to.

I think he should be used more than he has been and he needs playing time to learn when not to give the ball away and play to our style, but I don't think he's anywhere near Chamberlain or Walcott. Having said that, he certainly does have the potential to become better than those two.

I hope we see him off the bench more. I think it'll be a close fight between him and Gnabry coming back now. Podolski seems to be behind them now. I'd be surprised if he stays beyond this season.
+1
He needs a run of games to get some form, even if they are just sub appearances
+1
Campbell was way ahead of Chamberlain in reading the game. Sure Ox had the energy and and pace, but most of it was wasted in running into defenders. Campbell looked like creating something from the moment he came on.
+6
Campbell is technically and intellectually better than Ox. For sure he gives the ball away cheaply sometimes but so does Ramsey and Ox and Sanchez.

He knows when to pull wide and when to come in. If you watch him, he receives the ball so much every time he plays because he is always in space. Ox disappears in games sometimes.
+4
I thought he did rather well.... Sure he could've done better but he wasn't bad. The whole team wasn't at their best for the exception of Alexis.
+2
Yes he made some mistakes, but that is to expected especially when he hasn't being given a run of games, the others who have, what is their excuse?, by paying close attention u can see and tell is intellectually better and maybe technically better, but that part can be debated, but brains he does have, and he only played 24 minutes, while others where huffing and puffing for 90 minutes, with nothing to show for.
+1
I love watching Campbell play, he looked god I thought. Honestly, when the keeper spilled Santi's shot and Campbell squared it, he made the right choice. Welbeck was slightly hesitant and he could've darted across to meet that but he was static. I don't see Campbell starting matches but I hope we see him more.
+2
Campbell looks much better at exploiting spaces, giving the team width and timing runs behind defenders than chamberlain. Campbell is the better winger..ox is more of a central player with plenty of pace and energy.
+1
I thought the same Sjsung, not impressed but it's early days.
Wenger has banned all Arsenal players from speaking with the media ahead of the Anderlecht game.

What is happening?
Good, let them focus on the game, it seems we talk too much, they should be doing their talking on the field, rather than in social media, i wish he could ban them all season.
Stay focus, don't let media make things worst, prove all them wrong with performance, and your job is to play not speak to media, media its for the Manager & Co
Banning them from talking to the press isn't gonna change anything, being complex and diverse in the way we train will do a world of good. Wenger felling the pressure and showing his frustrations during that BBC interview, questions asked and vaguely replied, he had no answers to the demanding and direct questions. Even he should know never feed the media anything as it can and will go against you.
+2
When the snowball rolls it becomes increasingly difficult to stop. I hope we can have some change of fortunes but I can't see what else we can do other than hope our players begin to gel much better than before. These next few games we have to take all points or else we'll be deemed as outsiders for the top 4. The table is beginning to take shape and although we have a bit of time to go during the season with top teams hardly dropping points it gets more difficult to catch up.

Giroud can't come back quick enough, and I hope both Kos and Merts stay fit for the rest of the season. We also need Ramsey to rediscover his form from the previous season and a half.
"Banning them from talking to the press isn't gonna change anything."

then...

"Even he should know never feed the media anything as it can and will go against you."

Lmao
+1
@Dougie, I meant never show the media your frustrations because it will potentially go against you. It's alright talking in a intelligent way like most of our players and manager do.
Wenger probably was real pissed so he couldn't hide his emotions but normally he's great at answering questions like that.
