Is Edu really a good chap or good for the club? I don't think he's doing a very good job and we should get rid.
I saw somewhere that Edwin van Da Sar was being considered to replace him. Not sure about that but we do need someone with better scouting ability.

Arsenal receive £120m Bank of England COVID-19 loan

Didn't realise we were this cash strapped. Guess we won't be spending in the transfer window then.

Can someone explain how we're gonna raise £120m between now and May with no fans attending the stadium.

Borrowing £120m in external debt when the owner is worth billions - utter c.unt

Here's an informative article about Kroenke and our funds.

My thanks to the author for making it simpler to understand.

Hmm just saw that on my MSN feed. First thoughts? Who the actual fuck was Huss Fahmy? :lol:

His contract and legal experience should be useful. Should be. But then this is Modern Arsenal the catastrophically inept business pretending to be a football club. :roll:

My question is what this guy's remit is gonna be - loads of titles but fcuk all clarity imo :?

This guy has left the Premier League where he was Director of Football, to join us where he will be Director of Football Operations - does the fact that his new title has the word "operations" in it mean that his tasks will be different ??

I'd imagine given his quals and experience he'll also oversee contracts - especially needed, seeing how badly we got fucked on Ozil's and Mickey Tarragon's ludicrous deals.

Richard Garlick?

Something stinks about this appointment but I can’t for the life of me figure out what it is :rubchin:

Anyway, a contract guy would certainly be helpful given the previous lot made such a mess of loaning Saliba out over the summer :roll:

I could never understand the affinity that people grew for Jennings ,Without doubt he was always a Tottenham man that was extremely professional and happened to play for us . Campbell for me is exactly the same , a Spurs man that defected.
His heart was in winning trophies not in The Arsenal per se. He was good for us but never really one of us.
Jennings was and is a spurs man ..........BUT they chose to get rid of him because they thought he was past it ,.We were not over the moon about him because of the spurs connection and we thought maybe they knew something ,but they were wrong .
He was absolutely fucking brilliant for us for 8 seasons I think and this was at a time we had a pretty flimsy defence at times especially in the first 1/2 seasons and the last .
One game amongst many that stands out beyond most was boxing day 78 . We played West Brom at home ,they had Regis,Cunningham,a young Robson and they tore us to shreds again and again . We lost 2-1 could have been 10 ,Jennings stopped them again and again he was magnificent.
West Brom were clapped off the pitch , Regis went over to Jennings hand shook his hand ! Another point is that Jennings always had time for the fans !
