  1. After two consecutive draws against top six teams, I wanted to give an update on our progress at Arsenal. The Gunners are currently sitting in 6th place after a little over half the season but I've made progress on rebuilding the squad from the roots up. After failed attempts to get Pirlo and De Jong from external teams, I decided to opt for more investment on youth as I did when I previously managed Chesterfield. With a focus on value in the transfer market, we managed to get Algerian striker Islam Slimani, Jack Cork and Jonathas (not world beaters but they will bolster on what we already
  2. One season on: observations since manager Glory Days arrival at Arsenal Reflective: Arsenal manager Glory Days has had a positive effect on the Gunners Its been approximately one season since the arrival of Australian manager Glory Days to the North London club. Arsenal sits comfortably in eight place with 26 points and is in prime position to push to the top with only a four point gap separating the Gunners and league leader Preston North End. Some observations since the arrival of manager Glory Days: Financial stability forces frugal spending An interesting development is Arsenals spen
  3. The Gunners has had a stellar start to the season with 11 from a possible 18 points and leaves us in sixth place. The off-season additions of Nigerian striker Brown Ideye and Aron Johannsson helps bolster our squad and lower the age of my overall squad. The performances of Spanish midfielder Pedro Obiang and French midfielder Jordan Ferri have been a pleasant surprise but with the upcoming fixture congestion of the cups and league games, the depth of our squad will be truly tested and it will be an interesting time to be a Gunner!
  4. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Arsenal secure Division Two status With a 2-1 win against relegation threatened Wigan Athletic, Arsenal have all but assured our Division Two status with 14 points separating the Gunners from 17th placed Wigan Athletic. Senegalese striker Papiss Cisse has been in a rich vein of form with three goals and four assists in his last five appearances however it's our defense which needs to be commended with an excellent defensive record with the likes of Marcos Rojo, Alaixys Romao, Yaroslav Rakitskiy, Tomas Huboscan, Marcel Schmelzer, Nac
  5. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Arsenal continued their merry run with four from a possible six points with a dour draw against Bristol City and a win against Tranmere Rovers. The points mean even more as we are one point away from the hallowed 45 points mark which will assure us of Division Two safety and more importantly, there is a 11 point difference between 17th placed Wigan and us with five games to go. Barring an absolute horror show, Arsenal should be in Division Two next season. I have also been busy adding to my youth team with the signings of Chilean central def
  6. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Arsenal received a major boost in their fight for survival with a solid 3-2 win over Portsmouth with goals to Papiss Cisse, Mikel Arteta and Yoann Gourcuff. After our loss against Rotherham, I decided to change things up with Gamez, Schmelzer, Gourcuff and Cisse coming in to add something different and it produced the desired result with a win which takes us five points from the hallowed 45 point mark. We boosted our financial clout by selling Fred and Felipe Melo for a combined 17.7 million and signed Hungarian striker Adam Szalai for 6.3 mil
  7. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread A few interesting developments have happened since I last posted. The Gunners managed to sign Rakitskiy from Preston North End for 15 million, a big thanks to Riece for the deal and despite his big transfer fee, he is well worth it if we can remain in Division Two. Since the Man City win, we have had two wins, one draw and one loss (Swindon Town) but more important we got 7 points from a possible 12 which given the Gunners' poor league form is an excellent return. The real marvel of my current season of Dutch goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet who since
  8. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread I've been away on holiday through the Easter long weekend and I was given an early Easter present in the way of two excellent wins over promotion chasing Northampton Town and relegation threatened Manchester City. Despite the positioning of Man City, these were two major scalps and help us push our way out of the relegation zone. We are now one of the form teams in Division Two but we will need to maintain our good run if we are to be safe. Some major developments while I was on holiday. Transfers In Huge signing for the Gunners, eventh
  9. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread The Gunners continue on their merry way with a crucial 1-0 win over relegation contenders Blackburn Rovers. Our defence is coming together with one goal in our last three league matches. New boy defender Marcos Rojo couldn't have played better in defence, grabbing the MOTM honours in his Gunner's debut but it's early days for the young defender. Arsenal have added another interesting piece of the puzzle with the addition of Lukasz Fabianski who has done really well in real life and may be in line for a rise. He will add competition to fellow
  10. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread I have been a busy beaver in the last week, looking to improve/build my Arsenal squad to a respectable level. The outgoing transfers are as notable as the incoming transfers. I was looking for value in the market, sometimes picking up a gem or two from externals, defender Lindsay Rose, midfielder Shkelzen Gashi and goalkeeper Zoet were such additions. Particularly happy with the pickups of Gashi (who in real life has 18 goals in 22 appearances) and young keeper Zoet who has performed well since his introduction to the first team. In terms

  12. Re: English Championship 7046 Match Report/Tranfer Gossip Thread Highly coveted Marcos Rojo and Ryo Miyaichi join Glory Days’ revolution Argentine defender Marcos Rojo has emerged as a top class defender under Glory Days Arsenal pulled off a transfer coup signing promising young players Marcos Rojo and Ryo Miyachi. Manager Glory Days has taken little time to impose his philosophy on the Gunners with a flurry of transfers within the first two weeks of his tenure. While the Miyachi transfer is in a similar vein to recruiting for the youth team, the move for Rojo is expected
  13. Re: English Championship 7046 Match Report/Tranfer Gossip Thread Arsenal manager Glory Days stamps authority with a flurry of transfers Youth is the way forward: Arsenal recruited promising defender Lindsay Rose In less than two weeks, manager Glory Days has wanted to put his stamp on the Gunner's squad. A clear focus on youth has been evident with five of his six incoming transfers being for players under the age of 24. A clear vision on building the Gunner's back from the grass roots,focusing on the youth team, allowing youngsters to come through the ranks, something Glo

Re: English Championship 7046 Match Report/Tranfer Gossip Thread Arsenal FC appoint manager Glory Days Signed: manager Glory Days is delighted to have taken over the reins at Arsenal Arsenal F.C. signed manager Glory Days. The experienced Australian left Division Three side Chesterfield after six seasons and 288 matches and will look to make an immediate impact on the London side. With a large following, the Gunners are mired in the relegation but the hiring of manager Glory Days will give the London side, something they have lacked in seasons: stability. After the horro
  15. Re: English Championship 7046 Match Report/Tranfer Gossip Thread Manager Glory Days bids farewell to the Spireites Clearly emotional Glory Days thanks the fans for all their support throughout his tenure After 288 games over 6 seasons at Chesterfield, manager Glory Days has departed. The announcement was made prior to kick off that Glory Days would move to London giants Arsenal on a five seasons deal. The Spireites faithful will only have good things to say for the Australian manager who turned a side mired in Division Four into a competitive Division Three side with two stron
