Lacazette was pleazed with being subbed again. If we aren't careful we may have another upset player in our ranks. His treatment is ludicrous and the wenger substitutions are comical.

Hope he has a massive game Friday steve then Wenger will have to play him every game, I need this win as nearly everyone at work is a Liverpool fan.

AGREED! if you see his stats in the french league.

31 of his goals came after the 70th minute last season for Lyon.

As players tire and spaces open up, its quality players like him who go the extra mile and get the result.

Lets pray Wenger allows him to play the whole game against Liverpool. COYG!

For some unknown reason Wenger seems to prefer to be loyal to 2 players that are leaving us rather than a new signing who actually wants to play for us. Ozil and Sanchez need to come off the pitch first, if they even start. In fact, its time to give others a chance to grab those positions in the first team, even if they don't look ready at the moment.

It has been 10 years since we moved to a bigger stadium. We were promised the world. We could compete with the elite. What has happened?
Money has been available. the crowds have turned up albeit sky high prices and what have we got in return?

3 fa cups. a million excuses. running star players contracts to the end letting them go for free. selling top players. panic last minute buying. players without a winning mentality. players played out of position to accommodate others. too scared to drop players who are not performing. no plan b. and not having the balls to stand up to star players demands. and a team that capitulates at the sight of pressure from the opposition.

This club needs change and need it quickly before we become a mid table team.

The thing was mate 10 years ago we were in the elite. There was two clubs above and beyond all others. Us and united.

Not making excuses but I doubt they could've seen all this money that has come pouring into the premier league clubs especially city and Chelsea. Good post tho there really is so much wrong at our club.

The board has a massive decision this summer, they let wenger dictate to them last season whether he stayed or not, but didn't give an answer til the last minute so no one else could be lined up, they can't do that again in a years time they have to know whether he's going at the end of this contract or not so someone is lined up! The situation last season was terrible planning! But if he is going to see out his contract is he allowed to take on the major rebuild that is needed, replacing sanchez, ozil, santi, cech and probably a few others.

It makes more sense to step down now and let a new manager come in and spend the money on the team they want, rather than if he is going in a year letting him spend big on players a new manager might not want, seems insane. I hope he has the decency to bow out gracefully at the end of the season and allow someone with new ideas to take it on and be able to form a team that's fully there's rather than in a year get a team on long contracts they haven't chosen.

Either that or double down back wenger fully and give him a 3 year contract to take it on himself. But that hasn't worked well so far! But at least new players would know where they stand and who they are signing for. Not you might be playing under someone else in a year, but you know probably not! No one knows til nearer the time!

Eden I think as long as we make the Europa league and season tickets continue to sell then I think your last paragraph is the most likely scenario.
Arsene will not go willingly and with him the board can continue as they are because support for Arsene himself is still very loyal from an awful lot of fans who will never turn on him no matter what.
When Arsene leaves there will be a tidal wave of ambition from every Arsenal fan and the club will lose the capacity to simply carry on as always without Arsene to divide the fans.
Arsene needs this board and this board needs Arsene just as much and once the partnership is broken there will no stopping change.
If Stan went chances are a new owner would be ambitious and replace Arsene immediately and if Arsene goes there will be nothing standing between the fans and the board.
Can't see this being Arsene last contract somehow its not in his or the boards interest.

Hi Ed,

I ask the same question all the time, so I won'T feel slighted if you don'T answer.

There are rumours now about Ozil signing (for 300k, which is absurd) . What, if any, impact will that have on Jack's future? Does he still have a future with the club? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - The club would like him to resign and it is unrelated to Wilshere Alex. Real Betis and Fenerbahce (who have four PL players on their hit list) will offer Wilshere options.}

More rumours from low grade newspapers that N'Zonzi is on his way to us in January. This is just the type of signing that would be good for us, as I have stated on many occassions. Do the Ed's have any info on whether this is true?
I have a feeling that it is good to have Law departing and the new guy coming in, as since Dein left we haven't been great in the signings and contracts department.

{Ed002's Note - I can confirm that the clubs have discused the player and that it can certainly go ahead in January. What I cannot agree is the price quoted by another poster. There has been a flurry of activity since last Friday and there have been several clubs also trying to discuss deals in Geneva on Sunday, in Nyon yesterday and today down in Monaco after a poorly attended meeting this morning. Right now, if Arsenal offer the player the chance to live in London and a decent financial package, then assumingSevilla are financially satisfied then I think it can be closed out quickly. There is a slight hesitation over money as Sevilla set a price that includes a payment they won't receive - the player will. If Arsenal look to negotiate Sevilla will want the player to sign an agreement recuing or removing the fee due to him. To the best of my knowledge that has not happened, and typically Arsenal are not a club to simply pay the full asking price.}

Going after nzonzi shows where our ambitions lie and that is finishing top four, not challenging for the title. It wouldn't be a progressive signing, just another stop gap. Now goretska would be. Nzonzi is a journey man pro and that's all. The only slight plus would be not seeing zhaka in an arsenal shirt but the only minus would be him and xhaka together. Dread the thought. I hope it doest materialise and we go for better and younger. We were linked when he was 7 mil and he was deemed not good enough then.

For once I agree with Steve he is nowhere near good enough for arsenal, we need much better he was awful in the prem when he was here.

{Ed002's Note - Gretzka would need a lot of persuading that Arsenal is a better option than others he will have.}

Reports in the press today that Arsenal have agreed a fee of around £35m with N'zonzi, is there actual truth to this Ed's? Much thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal have been speaking with Sevilla about Steven N'Zonzi but I am not aware of an agreement at the figure you quote. There is no reason something cannot be done however.}

Cheers ed, would certainly be someone to beef up our midfield.

I thought it was odd that he was in London and that he was not included in the squad for the last European match.
Would be an awesome signing, just the sort of player we have been crying out for. I would like to see us try and sign Fellaini to play alongside him. I am not a fan of playing smaller, technical, attacking players in deep defensive midfield roles in the current formation.

12 Dec 2017 14:41:47
I would actually like Fellaini in the midfield. Never really considered him before, but a bit of size and aggression is just what we need. With some consistent game time he was becoming influential at United. He would likely get the same with us. i'm game.

Fellaini would be great for us, just what we need, a battering ram.

Rumours that we may have won the battle to sign Goretzka and that Ozil may stay. My feelings are that Goretzka looks a good replacement for Ozil. Thoughts?

07 Dec 2017 22:04:50
I would think he’d be more of a replacement for Ramsey. They’re both box-to-box midfielders, and goretzka would arguably be an upgrade. He’s better defensively, scores goals, is decent in the air due to his height and jumping ability, and is fairly quick.

Regardless, he’s the real deal and I would love to seem him at Arsenal.

Hi Ed's,

Very random questions but do you know of any Arsenal interest in either Leon Bailey of Leverkusen or Geronimo Rulli of Sociedad?

{Ed002's Note - I don't like answering questions about random players that could be asked elsewhere. But no, none of the interest is coming from Arsenal.}

 0 0 

05 Dec 2017 13:51:05
N'Zonzi is either in or on his way for talks with Arsenal, He is just the type of DM we have been crying out for since the days of Vieira, Gilbert and Petit. My feeling if we sign him is that we may push Ramsey forward into the number 10 role he seems far better suited to and allow Ozil to move on. Thus may prove cost effective as we will pick up a fee for Ozil, which cold cover the cost of N'Zonzi, who has release clause in his contract.
I can also see us possibly trying to unload Walcott, Debuchy and Chambers.

{Ed002's Note - No. He is in London for some matter other than talks with Arsenal, Everton or Liverpool or any other club. And he is a regular visitor. If Arsenal are interested in the player they need to talk with Sevilla, not illegally with the player.}

The transfer window opens on 1st January, only 26/ 27 days away, so surely Arsenal may have requested permission to speak to the player and his representatives, especially as he has reportedly fallen out with his club and has a break clause.
As we well know deals are often put in place some time before they are permitted to go through, due to the complexity of transfers these days.

{Ed002's Note - No. he is in London regularly. I don’t know why - maybe he has a girlfriend here. He is not seeing Arsenal or any other club - Everton and Liverpool fans think he is talking to them as well. I don’t know where people get this stuff from.}

You may well be correct, as apparently he has a son here, but the pieces fall into place, as he there hasn't been 'noise' before when he must have visited his son and he has been omitted from the midweek squad after falling out and it all seems too coincidental. Hopefully he will sign for Arsenal.

{Ed002's Note - Seville has made no secret that they would be open to selling Steven N'Zonzi but both Leicester and Juventus were shocked at the asking price when they showed interest last summer. I guess interest from either club could remain - particularly Leicester. Newscastle and Arsenal have watched him this season but he is now very much out of favour. I am not aware of any approach by Everton alshough he is a player who was with Allardyce and Blackburn. Juventus could return to consider the player but he is not their first choice - although the player has previously made it clear he wants a move to Turin. If Arsenal wish to decalre an interest in the player they need to speak to his representative and Seville.}

We will sign him when he's 36 on his last leg, and we need a striker desperately.

Abuse? Why do people fire off abuse? How do they do it Ed and is it Arsenal fans?

{Ed001's Note - why? Because they are morons. As for who they support, I have no idea to be honest, it is hard to say for certain, as they could be pretending to support any team they want.}

25 Nov 2017 15:13:08
I just don't understand and hope I never do understand the idiots who go out of their way to abuse people on line for having an opinion or being different. I certainly don't understand people that give the Eds abuse - just stay off the site and live your life while allowing others to gain knowledge or debate areas of their interest.

{Ed001's Note - the oddest are those that ask for information then proceed to abuse us because the information is not to their liking. Why ask if you don't actually want to know? People are odd.}
