Our second game in the International Waste of Time Cup sees us face the French champions.
Luckily they’ll be without Mbappe and that Brazilian with all the Baftas so it should be a stroll in the Jardin des Tuileries.
Expect more player rotation and very little to indicate which direction Unai’s Arsenal is headed.
Cmon you Rip Roaring Gunners!
Waste of Time you say. Fair enough, but I think Emery has two . games after this to nail team pattern and eleven, so last one for dicking about.
As I said on yesterday’s page, GN5 aired concerns we’re going back to boring 1-0 to the arsenal days.
Well with Eddie saying Ollie was coming back, then Emery should know I’ll be starting the OUT campaign if he thinks for one second us purists are going to put up with all that trophies at the expense of goals shit
haha, these johnny-come-lately, plastic, goal-hunting supporters that have only been around since John Roberts and Ian Ure were the most formidable central defensive pairing on the planet, make me sick. 🙂
It was the calling it the International Champions Cup notion that you could decide every game on penalties to award a completely meaningless title which was the waste of time.
Pre-season friendlies are essential so that Emery can see how his players perform in match scenarios.
Oh dear, over 500 views already, with only a handful having any notion what the Rigsby reference and photo of Danny De Vito are doing in an Arsenal pre-match. hehe
ha ha ha Chas, you got it 🙂
Although smiley faces aside, I won’t give Emery long as it will quickly become clear where we’re going and my season’s mantra will be “nip it in the bud”
Some idiot replied to a joke tweet about it being disgraceful that Emery’s Arsenal should lose to Atletico on penalties, by saying that we should give him until the end of September at least!
Brilliant, love it 🙂
Obvious question is: why wait until the end of September? If the man is a wrong ‘un, he’s a wrong ‘un, no?
GN5 is still in love with Wenger, he is bound to be critical of Emery for a while and at least until Emery achieves something.
How can anybody judge a manager after 1 game at the job? It is simply not possible, even a year in a job is not enough. Did Pep shine after the first season? No he didn’t
However, if Emery fails miserably we are in trouble. Arsenal will not pay him millions to leave early, they will keep him until the end of 2020/2021 season. some of us won’t be around to see it 🙂
Whoa, steady Eddie
GN5 recognised it was time for change regarding Arsene, although I believe he rightly called for a respectful marriage break up
Now your other point. Agree you cannot judge after one game but what I’m looking for are early signals which will be very apparent
One whiff of a results at all costs approach and out will come the A4, and I have plenty to go around. I’ll be distributing outside Gate 94 after two home games
“Brazilian with all the Baftas” – who is that??
I think we should have a poll about GN5 and what he meant 🙂
“One whiff of a results at all costs approach” is hillarious. There will be games that you’d be relieved we won ugly. Not every game, but some meetings should be like that – points in the bag now, and we can play pretty against Bournemouth.
Relieved at winning ugly? Seriously?
Arsene got the boot for two reasons. Tippy tappy and Ollie style hoof ball.
Emery should be clear there is a new ruthless streak within Kroenke Towers and either of those styles, or defensive bollocks, won’t be tolerated
I have completely forgotten what I do when it’s chucking it down with rain and hail.
yep, if we can beat City, ManU, chavs, scoucers and scum playing the worst football imaginable – I would be happy. Not fussy when it comes to glory
for Eddie, Brazilian with all the Baftas
I see 🙂 🙂 very funny
Arsenal will be debuting their newly-released third kit in this game, with Puma describing the colours as ‘Biscay Green’ with ‘Peacoat Navy’
Hold on a minute, I have simply stated that the FEW games that I’ve seen of Emery’s previous teams appeared to be defensive in nature and that is not my preferred style of play – I prefer an attacking game and not the boring GG football.
I have NEVER even in our darkest days called for the sacking of a manager and I NEVER will.
I make no apologies for fully supporting Wenger who brought us greater football and more successes than any Arsenal manager in my lifetime. My point all along was that he should have been allowed to leave on his terms with his head held high,
As I said yesterday I feel this will be a classical type of transitional season with the players learning a different style of play and the manager testing out his players and system. I have low expectations for those reasons – not because we have a new manager – who I hope is very successful.
Having now watched the Atletico game on Arsenal.com I have no reason to believe that Emery is another GG.
Arsenal up 1-0 – Ozil at 13 minutes.
Iwobi just knew he would miss
Damn mkhitaryan lazy
You’re such a negative nob head 😆
Sokratis the assist master from the back.
Any sign of those second and third goals?
Goals, goals, goals! All for Micky.
Emery IN IN IN
Thanks updates and vids as on mobile
5:1?? did PSG not turn up or did they play the juniors?
i am happy to see you happy LB. I missed the game, but was chuffed to see the scoreline, excellent.
It wasn’t ozil who scored the firsts, it was Captain Mezut Ozil, how sexy does that sound?
xhaka is swiss albanian
sorry Swiss Kosovan
Don’t want to read the LB now as I want to get stuck in and savour tomorrow morning. Can’t wait
Mesut as Captain….. superb news
Zero interest in the result. Very little interest in the performance either (early pre season doesn’t count for much), but I’m very very excited to hear a manager come out after a game and talk about tactics and his ideas on how he wants us to play. The talk of pressing and high intensity has me excited and I cannot wait to see how we get on this season.
After a short time in the wilderness, we finally look to have a manager who can give this group an identity and get the fans on board. When we were successful under Wenger, we had a team who played the same way regardless of which players were on the pitch. We seemed to lose that towards the end where only our best 11 players could raise a performance, but I’m hopeful that could change under Emery.
PEA golden boot this season.
Hi guys. LB wonders what it is that’s different in the air. My observations, amateurish though they be, can be summarised in three words. Pierre. Emerick. Aubameyang.
He never EVER stops smiling. And if you look at training vids/photos, publicity moments like the new kit launch, or even match time, Mesut seems to have taken a real shine to him.
I think he’s going to turn out to be a phenomenal signing, not just for his goals, and general play, but for his esprit de corps (a while back I posited a theory about Wenger’s handover: well here’s another one – the arrival of Mkhitaryan, PEA and Sokratis, all from BD, almost at once is no coincidence). And I agree furthermore with FGG. Bring on the Golden Boot!
And I love you all guys, my favourite site for personalities.
