...........I'm stating a clear fact, Newcastle played like sht against us.

There is no getting around that, we were in 2nd gear all game and they barely troubled our goal and we weren't exactly playing electric either.

We were bland and overly cautious, they were complete crap, where's the untruth there?


We were at them from the 1st minute - we never let them get settled.
Bottom line is we played well against a team who had been on some decent form.

A win is a win.

What we have learned with Arsenal for a decade now is that we are masters when it comes to flattering to deceive, we paper over cracks so well. Its like when we beat Leicester, people were going overboard about it but it papered over cracks, they had key players missing and they played shit.

Now whilst I don't want to take anything away from wins because teams beat us when we are not at our best too - the big picture should be looked at. Beating Newcastle in isolation means nothing. Beating Leicester in isolation meant nothing. We don't kick on afterwards so it all becomes meaningless, we don't see an improvement.

KdB as a false nine against PSG is proof that Pep copies Arteta.

L'équipe : Arsene Wenger could also join Daniel Ek in his bid to buy Arsenal FC with Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira & Dennis Bergkamp


Please no

Sarri was being considered for the Roma job. Since Jose took that, I can see the Italian media linking him some other club. Arsenal is a weird choice though if they're bullshitting.

I'd be more worried about the demand for success and results under Wenger. I think he'd leave the footballing philosophy stuff to the manager but would want to uphold the values of the club.

What demand for success? The club kept handing him one extension after another.

I'm more worried about Wenger's fake sanctimony about responsible spending. One day he'll be all "Sorry Holding didn't cost £50m", and the next he's spending £70m on Xhaka and Mustafi.
