That's nothing compared to one of my work colleague's wife coming into the office with on old table leg in hand ready to beat the shit out of one of the managers because her husband didn't get a promised promotion. That happened 25 years ago and I still take the piss out of him.
I guess you could say he doesn't have a le--


Nah.

I see the Arsenal fans are all smug about the Newcastle VAR call, despite saying a few weeks ago that you should side with the aggrieved for the benefit of football.

Almost like that argument was self serving bollocks!

Nearly a week since arteta gave his evidence and he hasn’t been charged for the Newcastle comments. Anyone might think it’s being swept under the carpet.

As much as I dislike them and find Arteta very annoying, they have shown what is possible by backing a manager and playing exciting football.

We went in the wrong direction for years chasing the easy wins and short term gains. It seems like finally we are on the right trajectory again, so I don’t really care what they do as long as we keep improving.

To be honest if they had the same injuries as us they wouldn’t be sitting on top.

Just gotta hope they get them later in the season when their games get tougher.

I am now convinced that Arteta's big masterplan is to simply control games. Get a strong 2 nil start and then manage it. Go a bit harder in the big games.

I think that is why he really wanted Rice and is just making them hard to beat rather than be this amazing team with the ball.

Still not been charged for it. Been weeks now.
I have been asking the same. He should have had minimum 3 match touchline ban already.
I also noticed another team at the weekend had an assistant booked as they had 2 people in the technical area.
How about booking arteta for being on the touchline 60% of the game.
Arteta, pep get away with it every single game.

Watched the highlights of the Luton game without knowing the score.

So annoying 😵
Yes... but they did the same last-minute goal-thing multiple times last season and still they blew it in the end... let them enjoy the moment and Kulu's late Etihad equaliser as well 😊

I think they played better last season to be honest. And seeing Ramsdale smile and laugh at Raya conceding is not a good look.
