Ed02 could you give us a couple of names of our main targets like you did on the united page please? Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - I think Arsenal will look to one addition in January, perhaps two but nothing major. The club were very keen on Elseid Hysaj but any move is off following him signing a new contract. The club might well make an offer for Julian Draxler in January if there is interest from elsewhere shown - but Wolfsburg would like to wait until the summer. Gregoire Defrel and Kieran Tierney are still of interest. Others can await the Sharkopod.}

Ed, will ozil and sanchez sign a new deal? And what managers are we looking at to replace arsene? Is it his last season?

{Ed002's Note - (1) See previou answers. (2) Not worth dealing with.}

Agree0 Disagree1

Thanks 002.

Why is it not worth dealing with? I'm confused.

{Ed002's Note - It attracts the morons.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2016 15:35:28
Lool ohh i get it, they really do ruin it for everyone. I see that you said ozil and sanchez will "probably" sign new contracts. May i ask if arsenal are willing to meet there demands and also if arsene wenger staying at arsenal is affecting them signing contracts? Sorry for the long message mate.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Wenger staying or not. It is a case of negotiation and I don't know how much the club will look to offer.}

Julian draxlers position at Wolfsburg looks completely untenable. Think he is a great player. It's not the attitude you want to see from players when they ain't happy but I think he would be a perfect fit for the arsenal.

Unfortunately I have a feeling he is one of those we are forever linked with but never buy. 🙁.

Agree0 Disagree2

Dream signing.

Unfortunately, will probably only happen in our dreams.

Agree0 Disagree1

05 Dec 2016 23:43:21
Plays left wing so also fits now Sanchez playing through the middle. Watched a fair bit of him over the last couple of seasons and he is decent. Would love to see him at our club.

Agree0 Disagree1

06 Dec 2016 10:21:10
One things for sure he won't be at Wolfsburg next season maybe not after Jan if he keeps going on like he is.

Agree0 Disagree1

06 Dec 2016 13:09:04
I hate to sound all modern, but his stats aren't particularly impressive even if he is a very naturally talented footballer. For me, it doesn't make sense deciding that the likes of Gnabry and Campbell are surplus to requirements unless we bring in a winger who is guaranteed to bring us more goals.

Agree0 Disagree1

06 Dec 2016 22:49:15
Stats never tell the full story. It baffles me why some people still go by stats. No offence intended.

Agree0 Disagree1

07 Dec 2016 06:42:05
We currently have Walcott, Oxlade, Perez, Iwobi, Ramsey and Sanchez, who all can play wide. Perhaps its time to unload Walcott and sign Draxler, although I can't see us signing him. At present the main weaknesses is our squad are quality cover for Bellerin and a top LB.

Agree0 Disagree1

07 Dec 2016 12:12:38
I agree with you D16 but when we want goals and a player's stats shows they haven't scored many goals anywhere they've been - then you have to take that as very pertinent.

A player can be dry on the goal front his whole career and go to a different team and start scoring for fun because the system fits him or what not but if you buy Jose Altidore you can't be surprised if he doesn't score goals and if you buy Ronaldo you can't be surprised if he scores willy nilly no?

Agree0 Disagree1

07 Dec 2016 18:32:27
I completely agree on a quality Lb and cover at Rb as priority! As far as goals are concerned we are scoring plenty. I was suprised to see his stats and I usually go by them. The problem is I think he is just what we need on the left and he has spat his dummy out this year and hasn't been playing well and I think he is trying to force a move and he had a few lengthy lay offs at shalke.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2016 08:27:36
Sorry RG but I disagree Ramsey can play wide, I know he is played wide quite often but i dispute he can actually play at a decent level.
If Mesut stays Ramsey needs to move but if Ozil leaves then for me Ramsey could have a future with Arsenal.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2016 16:10:14
Cazorla out for 3 months. massive blow. Ramsey needs to step it up.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

01 Dec 2016 16:44:30
I didn't watch the match last night, just saw the highlights. Question - was Ramsey on the night as bad on defence as the second goal?

Looked disinterested and a little clueless.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Dec 2016 07:34:40
Ramsey? yeah like this is going to happened :-)

Agree0 Disagree1

03 Dec 2016 12:50:09
Is calling Wilshere back early not an option? I think now he's starting to get back to some fitness he could slot in the team well. Too many sideways passes with Elneny and Coq!

Agree0 Disagree2

04 Dec 2016 09:19:01
Ramsey is often played out of position wide and how many goals did we score after he came on? By the way Walcott was woeful.

Agree0 Disagree0

Morning Ed002, hope your well

Will you be doing our podcast before Christmas

Will you eventually start giving us information regarding wengers replacement


{Ed002's Note - It will certainly be before Christmas Malaga. I am currently sat in the Concorde Room at Heathrow Terminal 5 awaiting a flight which is the start of a 12 day trip. I do have some portable kit and might have a go at doing one whilst travelling.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

29 Nov 2016 07:08:07
Thanks mate

Anything on wengers replacement?

Have a safe journey.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed. Their approach through a third party to one manager was rebuffed. They remain driven by the timing issue now, and the preference would be to wait until 2018 rather than this summer - but it is not within their control.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2016 07:18:24
Sorry for being pushy

In your opinion will we have a better chance of getting the preferred choice if we wait until 2018.

{Ed002's Note - The preferred choice is not interested. The better other choices are more likely available in 2018 rather than next summer.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Nov 2016 00:36:16
Your stuck with the gimp malaga.

01 Dec 2016 11:08:47
Hope you're well ed! Seeing as you're talking about this subject is it true Ralph Hasenhüttl is being looked at as s replacement. Never heard of him until the last few days if I'm honest.

{Ed002's Note - I have not talked about any names.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2016 17:40:25
That's fair enough. Know you didn't just thought I'd ask whilst on the subject of the managerial position. Thanks anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Nov 2016 16:11:56
Hey ed02 are arsenal interested in m aye niang and Andre silva? thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Niang was of interest when much younger and there will be no intention of selling him. Andre Silva has been looked at by both Aesenal and, on a number of occasions, by Manchester United. His asking price if he were available might well put Arsenal off.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

27 Nov 2016 11:08:15
Thanks for the reply Ed, do you expect us to buy in January? I can't see it myself.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal has ceratinly had scouts looking at a lot of players and they still have the lengthy list of youngsters from last year. January is difficult as clubs don't want to sell and those players in European Competition will likely not want to move. I would not rule out Arsenal bringing someone in during January.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2016 11:31:44
Is there any chance you could give us the list of young players you spoke about last season? Thank you for your replies.

{Ed002's Note - The list leading in to the summer looked like this: Monaco's Kylian Mbappé, Lech Poznan's Dawid Kownacki, Chelsea's Domingos Quina (went to WHU), RB Leipzig defender Lukas Klostermann, Josh Tymon, Partizan's Andrija Zivkovic (went to Benfica), AZ Alkmaar's Myron Boadu (Ajax pushing as well), West Ham's Reece Oxford (staying at WHU for now), Atletico Madrid’s Lucas Hernandez (sign new contract, so probably off the list). Spezia Calcio's Umar Sadiq (sold to Roma and loaned to Bologna), Dinamo Zagreb's Josip Brekalo (moved to Wolfsburg), Nottingham Forest's Oliver Burke (moved to RBL), Leicester's Ben Chilwell (although interest waned when he signed a new contract), Celtic's Kieran Tierney. Velez Sarsfield's Maxi Romero is a child who could not move for, realistically, another year and has injury issues that would need to be assured as clear before any move to Arsenal - but they will push to agree an early deal. Marseille's Bilal Boutobba (moved to Sevilla. Marseille's Boubacar Kamara remains of interest to Arsenal. Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon - the battle will be when he is able to sign a professional contract. I understand from talking with someone involved with the process of identifying potential young targets for Arsenal that there are a number of young players that Arsenal have been scouting recently (such as Otavio and goalkeeper Alban Lafont). They have quite a long list of young players from mainland Europe that they are looking at and any young English player with expectations growing is always going to be of interest, such as Bolton's Rob Holding who was also on the list for the summer just past and Arsenal did manage to buy.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2016 13:57:38
Brilliant Ed. Really hope we buy mbappe but he will be very expensive now.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2016 22:02:00
Top class reply Ed, fair play to you mate. That's a very interesting list.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2016 22:10:34
Ed do u think sanchez and ozil will sign contracts?

{Ed002's Note - POssibly - but they will consider the options that they have.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2016 10:24:30
Hopefully they sign but got a feeling if we don't win the bpl they. Could be off.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2016 10:55:56
Ed, in your personal opinion do u think they will sign?

{Ed002's Note - Probably but it does not mean that they could still be tempted away and there is firm interest in Sanchez.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2016 19:11:40
Ed, thanks for the detailed post on the youngsters.

Who's interested in Sanchez? Juve?

{Ed002's Note - And Inter, and notably, Manchester City.}

Agree0 Disagree0

But they still have Cavani ;-)

Eds do you have any info on Hector Bellerin's injury? Much appreciated as always.

{Ed025's Note - torn ankle ligaments i believe lucas, he will be out for at least a few weeks it looks like mate..

Believable0 Unbelievable0

10 Nov 2016 20:51:53
Cheers ed, that's a real blow.

{Ed025's Note - it happens im afraid lucas, at least its not an ACL or anything that would see him out for months mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2016 23:09:25
Looking on the bright side, I like that. It will be time to for Debuchy and Jenkinson to prove their worth to the team in the net few weeks.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 18:47:18
Sanchez out for 6-8weeks.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

08 Nov 2016 21:55:26
Low grade muscle problem, he will be back for United.

Agree0 Disagree3

08 Nov 2016 22:43:46
It could be anything between a lay-off of four days and four months.

Either way, the doctors probably don't have a scooby, and it'll be longer still before we fans get any inkling whatsoever.

How about people hold off on posting overly pessimistic or optimistic filler on this page and see what comes out as confirmed? Just a thought.

Agree3 Disagree2

09 Nov 2016 22:53:47
Totally agree glorious.

Its ridiculous how pessimistic some people are and the way they jump to conclusions.

Apart from that, I bet he's out all season :-)

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Nov 2016 15:12:46
Hearing he will be ok for united. Fingers crossed.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2016 20:52:50
I thought he played for Arsenal.

Boom boom :-)

28 Oct 2016 01:42:38
Seeing some rumours that Lucas Perez damaged his ankle ligaments and is out for 2 months. any clarification on this?

Believable3 Unbelievable1

28 Oct 2016 12:47:11
Aye son, you're not wrong. Wenger's confirmed it today, like. Six weeks minimum on the sidelines and all down to a totally pointless, reckless challenge that somehow went unpunished.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Oct 2016 06:01:35
It's a shame Perez is out for weeks due to such a dreadful foul. How on earth the Reading player avoided being sent off is beyond comprehension. Fortunately Giroud is back, so we have an option up front, with Akpom, Perez and Welbeck all out with long term injuries.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Oct 2016 12:16:44
I mentioned my concern going into the last two matches in respect of the impact of playing a CL and PL match, following a heavy international schedule. I believed we needed to rotate and that has proved to be true, with a very tired display against Boro.

I felt we should have started Xhaka in the CL match, as he was suspended for 3 PL matches. I also believe we should have played Gibbs yesterday, as Monreal's lack of pace has been even more obvious this season. I also felt that Gabrie should have played one of the two matches and yesterday there were signs that Mustafi was starting to suffer from fatigue.

Yesterday, it was obvious that Boro would defend deep, with two banks of players close together and space would be difficult to find. Hence, I would have started Ox instead of Theo who tends to suffer when there isn't space to get in behind. In addition Iwobi looked fatigued having played for Nigeria.

It was time to start Perez and possible play Sanchez on the left, with Perez up top. We lacked creativity from either of the DM players, but in the absence of Xhaka, Santi and Ramsey, there was little option. Bellerin looked fatigued as well and possibly Debuchy could have played in the CL and Bellerin yesterday.

Believable7 Unbelievable0

25 Oct 2016 17:29:46
Jesus it wasn't that bad, we just didn't create enough or score enough and probably should have defended a bit better at times. It's easy to say that stuff after the match but, for example, if we hadn't have played Walcott and the match ended 0-0, Wenger would have been absolutely battered for not playing someone who has scored so many times in the last handful of matches.

Definitely 2 points dropped though but we go again.
