So happy for Noelle Maritz, great that JE is rotating.
Blimmin’ Spurs Women. If you’re going to lose, just lose – don’t give us hope.
Come on, Arsenal!
Happy for Noelle and she had a decent game. But the fact she wanted out of the club this window means there will be another massive rebuild this summer if Jonas losses 4/5 players which I think its going to happen if they win nothing and miss out on CL.
Are you sure Maritz wanted to leave?
Any player that signs a new contract then warms the bench since then probably questions if they might be better off looking elsewhere. Wienroither is considered by most to be the starting RB that makes Noelle the back up that might hardly play. It’s a world cup year too and for players like Iwabuchi and Nobbs, they moved to get game time. Respect them for that because otherwise they have no idea how much they’ll play if they stayed at Arsenal.
When you tell them Jonas Eidevall needs to be sacked, as Arsenal’s job is too big for him, they’ll start giving silly excuses for him.
I’ll keep on saying it, if this man is not sacked for his poor decision making, we’ll end the season trophyless, and also not qualify for next season’s champions league. Write it down.
Oh please, here we go….. If we get that result, it will have nothing to do with the fact that we lost Viv and Beth, but all to do with Jonas huh? I’ll tell you what Gary, how about when we win a trophy and/or qualify for the Champions League despite losing 60% of our offensive production, you get JONAS tattooed on your arse?
You really think this performance tonight is the kind that wins a trophy? It’s been years. How long does Jonas get or will be blame the loss of Meado and Miedema? How many players does he need to get a performance if he still wants a 9 to come in. And if he was serious why didn’t they pay for them. Arsenal as a club could have offered enough to get a player who is out of contract in the summer. But if Jonas keeps talking about missing out on bringing in a 9 this past window then how are… Read more »
Looks like Jonas has caused problems with his transfer talk. Chelsea now in the driving seat and a must win game next weekend against City…after playing them midweek too. Oh boy he better get the players heads back in the game.
