Very disappointing result for us today. I feel like jack is the only player who played with any desire. The rest were shocking.

What lessens the pain, is that somehow i expected this result. Wenger is past his sell date. There is no way he would tactically match guardiola who i feel is the best coach of this generation.

We need to get rid of wenger before we sink deeper into this abyss of mediocrity. I have always called for his head since 2011.All because the man is stubborn, tactically clueless and doesn't want to step down though everyone can clearly see that he is not taking the team forward. We don't even play good football anymore so why is he in the dugout?

Hello Ed,

I hope all is well. Can you please tell me:

(a) Is the interest in Gareth Bale real?
(b) Are we interested in Alban Lafont?
(c) Have we finally dropped interest in Benzema now that we signed Aubameyang?

Thank you,

{Ed002's Note - A. I don’t think so. B. There has been interest for two years but he could be another the club look at and do nothing - not for the first time. He has not been on the want list recently and would likely not be first choice. C. Not unless Lacazette leaves, they will look for someone younger.}

Great, thanks a million Ed.

I think it's too early to speculate on Wenger staying or leaving in the summer, but you can bet that I'll back to ask about that towards the end of March ;)

Have a great day.

Here’s one for both ed01 and ed02. firstly ed01 how highly do you rate Ryan Sessegnon? What he’s doing is unreal in my opinion and must have to be the most promising England youth around . And ed02 what’s the low down regarding interest in the player. Thanks in advance SLB 👍🏻.

{Ed001's Note - Spurs are trying to sign him for the summer and he is about the best around, maybe Sancho would have an argument, in terms of England youth. One of the best in Europe and had the sense to stay at Fulham in the last few windows rather than moving to ensure he played regularly.}

Are any clubs interested in James Maddison Ed? thanks.

{Ed001's Note - Wolves, Newcastle, West Brom and Brighton.}

25 Feb 2018 16:23:03
He appears to be very calm and level headed. if spurs take him it will prove to be another good spurs signing. Hopefully arsenal change targets and have a serious look . Thanks ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

26 Feb 2018 12:59:18
It was strange to see Sessegnon not making the top 50 or whatever list of u-20 players with top potential that was out recently. Also Sancho didn't make that list. You do like him don't you Esq?

{Ed001's Note - I am sure Sessegnon did make the list mate. Sancho was a definite miss though.}

26 Feb 2018 16:25:35
Sorry Ed Sessegnon did make the list. My bad. Apologies.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, I thought he did. Would have been a strange list if he hadn't. He would have been much higher but for Fulham being outside of the top flight, as the level of competition they face made a huge difference to the ranking.}

26 Feb 2018 16:21:30
Maybe I missed him. Isn't Sessegnon English ed1? If so he didn't make the list I think and neither did Tierney at Celtic (maybe he is older to qualify) .

{Ed001's Note - I had to check but yes Tierney is 20 so wouldn't qualify as it was teenagers only.}

26 Feb 2018 16:36:22
I think Sessegnon will go on to have a great carrier not because I think he is hugely talented (not that he isn't) but he seems to have a good head, seems to have good people around him. He could easily have moved to a PL club and sat on the bench, play for u-23s but no, he made the decision to play regularly in a more competitive league than the reserves and reject more money and just for that also I hope Fulham get promoted. But that list didn't have the hugely reaped and rated Phil Foden. He is already a media darling in England yet he wasn't there? Do you think it's got anything to do with him being at City and not getting much game time ed1? Or is he too young?

{Ed001's Note - it is a lack of first team football. It was based on their importance to the team they played for and the level they were playing at etc. Hence why Donnarumma came top, as he is key and a regular AC Milan, rather than a sub or U23 player.}

26 Feb 2018 16:55:10
Oh and our boy Fosu Mensah got on the list but there was one name that really caught my eye and sets the example for all young lads coming through and that was Martin Odegaard, moved too soon to a big club rotted on the bench for a year or so and stagnated his development. Money over playing time at such young age was a terrible mistake. Never seen him play but hope he gets his career on track and gets a good enough shot again.

morning, we were told that moving to the new stadium would make us compete with the so called super clubs. the only thing that we are competitive in is our stock market value.

you hear Gazidis talk and the first thing that comes out of his mouth is sustainable business model etc. well let me tell you, our great club has sustained itself for over a century, so stop talking rubbish and start talking about getting the players to do their jobs properly i.e defenders are paid to stop goals going in, midfielders are paid to take control of the battle zone and the forwards, yes you got it are supposed to put the ball in the back of the net, simples.

i don't like saying this as i respect Mr. Wenger and what he has done for the club, but he is definitely a reactive coach and not proactive like he was many moons ago. Reactive means you're already in a bit of trouble and you got to do something about it. Proactive means you stop the trouble from hitting the fan in the first place.

P.S. if we do win the cup on Sunday (highly unlikely), we will just be papering over them cracks again. # time for big change.

It is Wenger who refuses to spend as he believes in a profitable business model. The board to the best of my knowledge has never refused Wenger funds and indeed, Gazidis on occasions has publicly stated that funds are available. Former director Keith Edelman was sacked after stating that Wenger could spend £100m if he so desired.
The PL has moved on since the new stadium was built and clubs such as Man C, Man U and Chelsea have enormous resources.

23 Feb 2018 22:22:31
I agree again arbie Arsene is no longer proactive but to me the biggest problem of all is he is only reactive when he's totally 1000% ready to accept that something or someone hasn't or isn't any longer working out.
Weaknesses every pundit and sports writer has highlighted time and time again for 2 or 3 years Arsene still refuses to see until he personally comes round to admitting it.
We had no top keeper until Cech for years, have had no DM since Gilberto although stand Le Coq did a decent job next to Caz and had no out and out natural goal scorer capable of converting all those chances we were creating but Arsene just refused to listen to what anyone and everyone was saying until he was good and ready.
Xhaka and Iwobi are just the latest additions to where Arsene refuses to accept what is plain for everyone else to see.
I like Arsene the person and he was the best manager we've ever had but that was a very long time ago now and he's been taking us backwards for years now.

22 Feb 2018 23:03:07
iwobi = stand up comedian. we could not keep a clean sheet in a laundrette. fellow gooners i would so love to say, we will win this comp. but i can't and in all honesty. out in the next round for me. tonight was very very poor. # ground hog day.

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Feb 2018 09:41:02
Don't under estimate our ability to shock either way arbie mate, we are every bit as likely to overcome AC over two legs as we are to crash out the worst side left in the competition.
As Forest Gump would say " Arsenal are like a box of chocolates, you never know what your going to get "

22 Feb 2018 22:54:40
Kola, stand up and take a bow.

The rest of you, get back on the bench.


No doubt Iwobi will be the first name on team sheet against Man City.

Gawd help us.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Feb 2018 17:07:39
It does surprise me that he is the only player to mind who has been dropped from the team. And I don't think he has done much wrong. Yet others like xhaka iwobi on the top of my head can be as rubbish as possible and still be on the team sheet.

22 Feb 2018 22:14:55
Shocking performance. To think we sold Gabriel in the summer for £8m and kept Chambers despite being offered £16m by Palace! Iwobi was also absolutely useless.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Feb 2018 20:35:40
Surely not? Not even we can let this happen. 27 minutes gone and we are rocking like a 60s band.

22 Feb 2018 09:34:21
Eds have arsenal expressed any interest in milinkovic of lazio for a summer deal, he would b perfect for us.

{Ed025's Note - not as far as i know wesley..

Agree1 Disagree1

Chris Smalling! No thank you very much.

Agree3 Disagree0

19 Feb 2018 09:34:38
Chris Smalling, Johnny Evans what's the difference? Age fee wages I guess but both were or are not seen as Utd standard.
If people have changed their mind on Evans and he's now suddenly good enough for City then why can't the same thing happen with Smalling?
I see Smallings ability and why we might be interested but I also see his inconsistencies and huge errors.
If your Chris Smalling and want to improve your game and realise all that early potential then would you think Arsene and Arsenal given our poor defensive discipline and organisation is the place to do it?
Most probably a bad move for both him and us at this time.

19 Feb 2018 11:43:39
I think before we spend any more money a another CB we need to look at why and how Mustafi Gabriel Chambers and Holding have all failed to become Kos regular partner and perform at a consistently high standard.
It's no good keep changing the personel without sorting out the underlying problem.
It's like keep changing a tyre on your car because they keep getting worn-out on one side but not getting your tracking sorted, Wether you buy a cheap tyre for £30 or the best you can get for £150 it's not going to sort the problem if you don't sort out the real problem.

19 Feb 2018 13:09:51
Very true 62. In truth tho we need to replace koscielny as well. Am I alone thinking That? He's 31 and I swear he's carrying a few injuries he just doesn't look as sharp. Then again it's hard to look sharp in our back 4.

19 Feb 2018 14:10:13
Hi 16 mate i totally agree age has suddenly caught up with Kos this season, as our main man and only really reliable CB for years he's had to work hard to try and compensate and cover for those around him so maybe that too has had an effect, but Kos brilliant as he has been is unfortunately coming to yhe the end of his career as a top quality premier league CB.

19 Feb 2018 15:28:02
Burnley have a Top 4 goals against record. We have a bottom 6 goals against record. Go get Mee and Tarkowski. Mind you we would need Dyche too or AW will likely ruin them.

19 Feb 2018 18:37:21
That's the thing SG mate, Arsene sees retaining procession as the best form of defence, it's how he sees things and is in his principles to play that way.
The problem is now that everyone and his cat has completely sussed us out everyone has a game plan that includes taking advantage of our defensive weaknesses rather than just trying to contain us and hang onto the point they started with they all fancy thier chances of getting 3pts against us now days.
