    Does anyone know how good chatzitheodoridis is?

    I have no idea how good (or not) he is, but he was brought over from one of our academies in Greece (Arsenal Elite Academy). He must be of a pretty decent standard, though, if we were prepared to offer him a scholarship. Sames goes for the other Greek kid, Savvas.

    Speaking of our academy, it's undergoing huge changes, a complete restructuring. All senior staff have either been sacked or not had their contracts renewed for the forthcoming season, including Roy Massey, who was partly responsible for identifying and signing Wilshere from Luton. We're investing a ****load of resources into it.

    Yh source because last I checked steve gatting was staying (he's one that desperately needs to go). Jonker has brought in some coaches to work with people within the setup rather than replace people.

    If Arsenal came second and could have won the league on the last day of the season they would be gassed beyond belief, so don't talk like it's not warranted, especially to you guys since some of you on here have some deep superiority complex and would rub any type of achievement in everyone's faces given the opportunity.

    You won't catch many of us bragging bar SUG, and if we do maybe like once or twice, so don't exaggerate.

    You literally made an entire thread dedicated to the so called 'seasonal Arsenal meltdown'. You're the ****ing worst of the lot.

    A few AST members were told it by one of our directors. It's all over twitter. Basically, Andries Jonker, the new Head of the Academy, is overhauling the whole setup, with the help of Steve Morrow (new Head of Youth Scouting) and some guy who was running Barnet's academy. A new facility has also been built (pic below).

    It's been needed for a long time apparently. We've lost some really good coaches and influential scouts over the past few years because of a so-called clique at Hale End (our Academy site). I mean, we very nearly lost top academy status because we failed an FA audit, but escaped that fate when we promised to make changes. It's a probably a reaction, as well, to the fact that Chelsea are beginning to get a stranglehold in certain London districts.

    I know it was great wasn't it. I fail to see how that is bragging about LFC though?

    Yeah I openly admit I troll sometimes, but I don't target Arsenal, I did a Chelsea thread too so don't feel like too much of a victim.

    Everyone gets their turn, I'm sure you lot enjoyed when Gerrard slipped after all.

    He manages the u-21s so is not directly involved with Hale End anymore. Think it says a lot that Jonker has "promoted" Carl Laraman, our current u-18 coach and a piece of work, to assist Gatting next season. They're old pals, them, always putting in a word for each another, eking out a nice little niche for themselves at the expense of true Arsenal men. The further the both of them are from our u-16s and under the better.

    The majority of coaches at younger age groups will most likely be retained. But the top brass are out. Massey's a real loss, though. Not sure what's happened there.

    Wenger says 4th is like a trophy to defend the players. If u actually think we pride ourself on 4th place then I feel sorry for you.

    Yes, we were funding the most expensive club stadium ever built.

    Ridiculous that many claim to genuinely believe that in 2006 Wenger/Arsenal just decided to stop competing. And anyone who genuinely believes that Arsenal havent made huge strides in recent years is simply deluded.

    Incidentally, Liverpool went all in wrt transfers to compete in the same era and ended up a joke. I say ended up, but let's be honest here , Scouse FC are the club who just keep on giving. The entire country can unite in the comedy

    http://www.theguardian.com/football/...l-fourth-place

    Arsène Wenger has suggested that Arsenal should regard the prospect of securing fourth place in the Premier League and entry into next season's Champions League qualifying round as comparable to winning a cup. "The first trophy is to finish in the top four," said Arsenal's manager in the wake of Saturday's 2-0 FA Cup fifth-round defeat at Sunderland. "And that's still possible. I believe finishing fourth is vital for us, so let's focus on that."

    http://www.espnfc.com/story/1201095/...-like-a-trophy

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that qualifying for the Champions League is the equivalent of winning a trophy at a fiery Annual General Meeting with the club's supporters on Thursday morning.

    "For me there are five trophies every season: Premier League, Champions League, the third is to qualify for the Champions League," Wenger told the room full of assembled shareholders and some media representatives. "The fourth is the FA Cup and then the League Cup.

    There are more people from London than Liverpool at Liverpool uni if that's what you mean. You could go through uni and only encounter scousers in the supermarket or pub

    Ah fair enough I take that back then.

    I remember reading a few years back that his words had been taken out of context (talking about trophies in a financial sense, not a literal sense), guess he has talked about it again since then.
