looks like walcott is gone surely people must come in.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2018 15:17:20
Malclom would be his replacment I think.

16 Jan 2018 15:18:21
I believe we are actually trying to move walcott and giroud. Rumour also welbeck so we will see.

16 Jan 2018 18:24:11
Giroud plus cash for Aubameyang the rumour.

16 Jan 2018 21:30:40
Happy if Welbeck goes
Auba 4 Giroud
Malcom and UTd player to replace Theo and Sanchez
Actually play Lacazette for 90 mins

Happy

Then sort CDM and CD out _ even if short term plans ( Nzonzi and Evans ) knowing we have youth coming through.

Hi edd have we lost interest in Julian draxler we've always been linked with him and I'm surprised we've not put an offer on the tacked.

{Ed002's Note - Not at all - Arsenal remain interested in Draxler.}

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Jan 2018 13:41:24
Thanks for your quick reply.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

16 Jan 2018 14:34:45
Are psg looking to sell, ed?

{Ed002's Note - They would be open to a good offer.}

16 Jan 2018 23:02:18
Hey Ed. I'm finding this window a tad strange regarding our targets. Do you actually believe we'll sign one or two of the big names mentioned? What throws me off is the board made it very clear in the summer/ end of last season we were ambitious and that we would challenge for the title this season yet our single signing has only completed a handful of games and our beast of a LB can't win his place over a CM youngster. Wenger showed no signs of wanted to truly sign anyone last window apart from Mbappe who unfortunately made the right decision. I just feel lost. Sanchez made it clear in the summer he wanted to move on yet we didn't act so why act now. Meaning we can keep him to the end of the season just as Wenger has been adamant about until this week. I will say this though, regardless who comes in, I like that we're finally trying to lose dead weight.

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

16 Jan 2018 09:59:49
Hi Ed's

Appreciate the work you put in around the transfer windows especially.

Ignoring the sanchez situation at the moment and switching focus onto the summer, are we still interested in Milinkovic Savic because i've heard he's having a great season and are we looking for a new centre back? Mustafi still doesn't convince me and you can see Kosc is struggling for fitness and form as he gets older.

{Ed002's Note - Milinkovic-Savic is not a player who will moving in January and I doubt he will ever be an Arsenal player. Arsenal are keen on a CB and have had an offer for Benatia rejected.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2018 13:04:54
Is there any chance Giroud could be moved on this summer?

16 Jan 2018 09:36:22
Hi ed002

Can you give us an update on the Sanchez situation. Are we getting a good deal.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure there is any update really - he will at some point leave. In terms of a good deal, it centres around who replaces him rather than the odd few million here of there and that is the issue. There is a split opinion with one party favouring Lemar or Lozano and another favouring Aubameyangadingdong. There are pros and cons for each. Lemar is likely to be expensive and Monaco do not wish to sell right now, but he has done well for quite some time and should adjust well. Lozano is having a very good season but there is no telling if he will adapt - so there is a risk. Aubameyangadingdong is older, expensive in terms of transfer fee and wages, and has very serious baggage he brings with him. So the most critical thing as I see it is who replaces Sanches, not Malcom coming in for Walcott or Mkhitaryan replacing Oezil.}

16 Jan 2018 09:50:58
Thanks for the detailed reply.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

16 Jan 2018 10:11:58
Nice read there ed thank you.

16 Jan 2018 11:10:52
Presumably safe to discount any supposed Chelsea interest as Manchester City saving face/ betting companies trying to earn a bit of cash Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about, sorry.}

16 Jan 2018 11:32:09
Thank you anyway Ed002.

16 Jan 2018 11:34:35
ED02 as u said I have something complicated to understand. Do you mean malcom will replace Walcott or something else? Thanks will really appreciate your reply.

{Ed002's Note - What I wrote is clear - I don't understand the question.}

16 Jan 2018 11:47:38
Wajid, it reads as though Malcolm/ Walcott, Mkhitaryan/ Ozil, whoever/ Sanchez - so if we get Mkhitaryan as part of the Sanchez deal, it doesn't mean that he would be a direct replacement for Sanchez despite being part of the transfer.

I would say this makes some sense in terms of where we are with getting Ozil tied down, so that we can then decide whether to push the boat out in terms of what we offer Mkhitaryan.

16 Jan 2018 12:27:18
ED02 i want to ask is Arsenal looking to replace Walcott by signing malcom from Bordeaux? Thanks will really appreciate your reply.

{Ed002's Note - RTP.}

16 Jan 2018 13:02:22
Do you believe the malcom deal will get done? It’s gone a bit quiet on him.

15 Jan 2018 16:27:59
hi,
is their any truth to the rumores of Arsenal are in talks with Dortmund over aubameyang.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Jan 2018 11:03:53
Hi ed002,

Any chance of a new sharkopod this week? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Almost certainly.}

Agree3 Disagree0

15 Jan 2018 11:32:27
Thanks for the quick response. Looking forward to it, they are awesome.

15 Jan 2018 13:29:21
Is there any interest in Manchester United’s martial?

15 Jan 2018 10:42:45
i read Malcolm is not leaving his club now they wint sell him in jan is this true.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2018 13:38:25
wont sell.

16 Jan 2018 13:05:36
The club president has said there has been no talks, it's all wind and that arsenal will have a tough task taking Malcom from them.

14 Jan 2018 19:11:48
Rumour mill Malcom to be done tomorrow.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jan 2018 19:20:47
Big bloody deal we get him for 44million? He has an average of a goal every 4 games in France bloody great how many young players does Wenger buy and fail? Too many, it doesn’t work.

14 Jan 2018 20:00:05
From what I’ve seen he’s a very capable player so for 44 million i would take that. You think Arsenal can still attract the world class players. I think buying players who are young but have world class potential is the best we can do. Or take bench players from big clubs.

{Ed001's Note - he is a winger and scores goals, the lad is quality and is likely to go to the World Cup with Brazil. Malcom would be a class above the rest of the players in the current Arsenal team, without Ozil and Sanchez. Not that that is saying much admittedly.}

14 Jan 2018 20:00:06
Playing at a team who sit bottom of the French league. give the kid a chance! You don’t get linked with top clubs for no reason and others, more appealing too have showed their interest! I’ll still be Wenger out but if we get Malcom and possibly Mkhitaryan then that with Lacazette if a decent enough front 3! Just need to sort out other areas too and sharpish!

14 Jan 2018 20:54:55
Hes supposed to be a 5ft 7 tricky winger, that " needs to work harder off the ball" he would not be a sanchez replacement. Mikytarian and malcom would make us very light weight with one being untried and the other not hacking it in the prem. Not really sorting the mess we find ourselves in. Malcom for the future but we need a massive injection to attemt to save the season.

{Ed002's Note - Malcom would be a Walcott replacement.}

14 Jan 2018 21:10:09
Theo was quality

Ox

Le Coq

Are you seriously telling me we should spend 40 mill on a player and give him a chance dream on. If he was that good he would have gone to a top club, currently we are NOT a top club . far from it.

14 Jan 2018 21:11:08
Then a bloody expensive replacement. how can he be a replacement for someone who doesn’t play lol.

14 Jan 2018 21:33:35
Banbury you're slagging off players who we could sign before they even kick a ball. I'm so thankful fans like you are a small minority.

14 Jan 2018 21:43:06
It’s the price for someone who has done nothing a goal every 4 games in a poor league . Name me our success stories when buying young players they are few and far between

40,000,000 come off it.

{Ed002's Note - He is not a striker.}

14 Jan 2018 21:59:40
D get real, he isn't slagging him off, he's making a valid point. Every player signed is a punt but the younger and less experienced is more of a punt. I want this malcom but he isn't going to dig us out of a hole this season, he ain't superman. We need far more than just a promising young player.

14 Jan 2018 22:08:38
Ed02 if malcom replaces Walcott then you would know who will replace Sanchez? Can u tell a name please thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained where there is interest in the likes of Lemar and Lorenzo.}

14 Jan 2018 22:20:46
At last cheers Steve. this Malcolm boy will take a while to settle

D16 I love your 20 year plan lol.

14 Jan 2018 22:56:16
Who do you think the Sanchez replacement could be? If you know anything that would be great.

14 Jan 2018 23:14:02
Is Malcom likely to come? And has nothing changed from Lemar?

14 Jan 2018 22:33:58
I’m not slating your opinion on malcom. I agree he is young and not a big name but from what I have seen he looks a real player. My question to you is do you think we can attract the world class talent you are saying we need. My answer to that would be not at the moment. The club aren’t In a good situation and we don’t pay excessive wages so it will be very difficult to do so. So if I means taking a punt on young players who can potentially be quality then so be it. There isn’t many other options available.

14 Jan 2018 22:36:45
Some of you lot are hilarious. Moan when he does nothing and moan even more when he does 😂 And you said it perfectly, Walcott WAS quality. Malcom is a darn sight better than Wolly Walcott so don’t play him down before he’s even done anything! Hardly anyone knew of Asensio, Casemiro, Sergio Roberto, Rabiot and now they’ve all come in to big clubs and proved their worth! 💯.

14 Jan 2018 22:44:27
Haha Banbury what are you smoking. Too many fans are shooting down rumoured signings I see it on here loads. My 20 year plan. Just because I feel we'd be lucky to get Malcolm. No he won't be enough and we need more but he'd be a good signing. And you're talking about how many goals he has scored like he's a striker. Do some proper research then slag him off for how many goals he has scored. Apologises if I'm reading it wrong just seemed like a moan he isn't good enough before he had started.

On another note haven't we got new people sorting and looking for the players to bring in. Maybe things will change. So I keep telling myself lol.

14 Jan 2018 23:14:33
if malcom is replacing walcott that is a great start imo. massive upgrade.

14 Jan 2018 23:16:10
Lorenzo Insigne? Can't see Napoli letting him leave mid season fighting for the Serie A title and all that.

15 Jan 2018 04:00:17
His stats for the season are very similar to Theo’s which isn’t inspiring apart from he has played over 1000 minutes more .

I’m not saying he’s crap I’m saying he isn’t the answer and we need a bloody quick fix . Not sure anyone can see this but we are getting worse each season you can argue who is at fault all day long but we are miles away from CL football through finishing in the top 4. Other clubs are spending money on proven players we are gambling, someone else in a post threw names into a post . so bloody what, they weren’t at Arsenal were they, AW has not got a good record with youngsters in recent years .

{Ed001's Note - if you are judging by stats then you are wasting everyone's time discussing him. He is a young lad playing for a side with a complete lack of quality throughout that has much less possession of the ball than Arsenal and are coming up against comparatively stronger teams than them every week. Perhaps you should wind your neck in and try actually watching him play before you criticise him? If you did you would see why he is hot property, the lad has quality oozing out of him.

Admittedly he is not the answer, but only because you have 11 players on the pitch (unless Sanchez and Ozil are playing) who are not good enough. You all masturbate over Jack 'Loose Touch' Wilshere every week when he is not a Premier League quality player. He bumbles the ball about and gets plaudits even when he has had no control over the ball at all. Cech looks like he has forgotten how to play. Don't even get me started on Iwobi! If Maitland-Niles is a fullback then the world is flat and only made by aliens a week last Tuesday.}

15 Jan 2018 04:01:24
Derby

Just for the record I’m not slagging this lad off but why is he an upgrade what are you basing that on?

15 Jan 2018 07:38:47
Seriously ed001 reply of the week, this season is already over for us, top 4 forget about it and with the way and purpose we are playing EL soon we will be kicked out. So get malcom in grt him used a little to the PL now and have him ready for next season. A quick fix never going to happen especially with wenger in charge. For a quick fix you need a whole new defence and ship Iwobi and welbs as soon as possible.
Watch the kid he is way better than theo. State are misleading mate.

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate.}

15 Jan 2018 08:06:41
Really loved that reply ed. I've only seen him a handful of times but you can see he can be a star and I hope we get him. We do need more but least It'll be a step in direction. And as for your summary of a few of our players spot on. It baffles me every game I watch how they completely love everything Wilshire does. We must replace cech and how iwobi gets in the team I dunno. I could go on for ages with each player as I'm sure you could too.

{Ed001's Note - I really do not get the Wilshere love-in either. He is one of the weak links in a very weak side, but everything he does is greeted by paroxysms of delight by the commentators and fans. He gave the ball away and it was 'wonderful vision', despite it only being a 5 yard pass straight ahead that he messed up. I am not sure how much vision is required to see 5 yards, but I am extremely short-sighted and would still back myself to have seen that pass without my glasses on! He passed it 5 yards sideways and the commentator called it a 'lovely touch'. He bumbled the ball through their defence on the edge of the box, miscontrolling it and it bouncing around to ricochet through, but that was a 'fantastic piece of skill' according to Townsend. Sometimes you just wonder what people are watching!}

15 Jan 2018 10:26:29
Exactly ed. Is it because he is English and their was so much hope and potential for him. I agree with the bad touch. It's that reason I believe is why he gets injured so much. Bad touch then a crunching 50/ 50. Arsenal are in such a terrible state and of we're relying on players like Wilshire it's going to get worse.

{Ed001's Note - his first touch is appalling. He controls the ball so loosely that he is always overstretching himself when he has the ball. It is little wonder he picks up injuries when he is right at his limits of flexibility at the point of contact. He probably should have been sent to train in something like Karate to work on his flexibility, but football clubs very rarely think like that at the professional level. Though Man Utd are having to do so now, they even send youngsters to train in how to fall without hurting themselves because kids today no longer learn it through playing outside. You don't fall over sat on your arse on a games console!}

15 Jan 2018 12:10:40
Not going to go into depth, but completely disagree about Wilshere. He has a way of receiving the ball that turns his first touch into beating his man. Without Cazorla or Rosicky (or a top quality replacement, which we should really have gotten anyway, but that's another matter) Wilshere is the best ball carrier we have.

{Ed001's Note - no he doesn't. He has a poor touch that rebounds too far away from his body. I am talking about generally, especially when he is running with the ball. He lets it get away from him. God I wish I could get a pair of them Jack Wheelchair specs you lot wear all the time! You even manage to make his crap touch into an asset and suggest it is meant!

15 Jan 2018 12:23:29
Your a joker Banbury, you actually seen the kid play, or do you just go off that opta stat bull? A centre half who plays sideways 3 yrd passes, sign him up, he's the bollox! get outta here joker.

15 Jan 2018 12:54:01
Like Wire said Ed, I think you may have a personal vendetta against jack. Never seen you write so much hate about a single player. :D. Jack certainly stretches for balls he over hits which no doubt opens him up for injuries, but he’s very attack, direct minded like Sanchez which is class as putting the opposite team under instant pressure opens up gaps and brings on mistakes plus I think he just hasn’t had the game time yet to play the way his mind believes he can. Most players fighting for their place may play at times frantic and try do to much but he’s playing for a manager who doesn’t discipline a player for staying out late or rewards playing poorly with little quality like iwobi with more game time. We have a striker who could not stop scoring with both feet in the French league playing with little confidence, a shadow of himself. Basically what I’m getting at is I think jack is a quality player like a few other in our side (not world class) but just being managed by a manager who couldn’t teach a new dog tricks.

{Ed001's Note - hate? I don't hate him, just don't rate him. You lot are just so far up his arse for no reason that it is insane. So now you are making excuses for Wilshere being unprofessional because it is the manager's fault for treating him like an adult? Perhaps he should try acting professional because it is his career and he is an adult. No one to blame but himself for the fact he drinks and smokes too much.}

15 Jan 2018 15:08:20
I don’t think I like the tone of this thread. I’m struggling enough with the dross been served up and now my poor little jack is getting a bashing . Where’s the emoji with fingers in ears and lalala out the mouth 😂.

14 Jan 2018 19:08:15
I am giving Wenger till the end of the month to pull something out of the bag or its WENGER OUT for me.

Agree0 Disagree1

15 Jan 2018 00:54:01
Tough one for me Jelfy. I'll never come out and say Wenger Out because of what he's done for us, but I slept through the Bournemouth game and checked my phone to see the score and felt nothing. I've barely even watched this season, have no attachment to a lot of these players.

{Ed0333's Note - I feel your pain mate I felt like that when Hodgson was our manager. Sometimes I even forgot we were playing things were so bad.

15 Jan 2018 12:37:14
The team he set out against bournemouth is a complete joke, this total italia bullshit formation ain't working, you got one centre half and two headless chickens running around him in chambers and holding.
worst thing is, this squad is an accumulative effort for the past 20+ years, and it's an absolute disgrace.

When we got lacazette, i thought we'd revert to the 4-2-3-1, naaaaahhhh forget that, let's just play some young wingers/ midefielders into wingbacks

how many times did moses turn him inside out at the bridge?

14 Jan 2018 11:52:34
Sanchez left at home a sale must be imminent.

Agree5 Disagree0

14 Jan 2018 15:29:37
him and ozil are gone mate ozil to juv.

14 Jan 2018 16:50:33
Sanchez is as good as gone, we can only hope Liverpool maybe even Chelsea join the race that way we can eak out as much cash as we can for the transfer fee. This needs to be resolved asap as it will only effect the team morale even more than it is already.

14 Jan 2018 17:37:47
Does more clubs entering the bidding mean we can eke out more money? If he wants to go to city he can just refuse to sign for anyone else and hang around til the summer.

{Ed002's Note - Which "more clubs" are these? The wages are enough to stop most sides being interested.}

15 Jan 2018 12:39:20
ozil ain't going Juve, heard of dybala?
