Reports on Sky that Mustafi will be out for a month with a hamstring injury, which would be a relief as the injury looked very serious and a longer absence seemed likely.

It will be interesting to see the effect on the teams playing in Europe and with many players playing Internationals. Already inuries such as Mane at Liverpool, Conte at Chelsea, etc, have occured. As we can rotate our squad for EL matches, can we take advantage during the heavy schedule ahead?

I don’t think conte being injured will cause too many problems for Chelsea.

Question fellow Gooners;
Apparently there are no takers for Ozil, due to the £330,000 pw wage demand, should we offer him a new deal on those wages?

As a replacement if he leaves, what are the thoughts on signing former Chelsea player Oscar, who reports say wants to return from China or Bale who Real may sell if they recoup the fee they paid for him.

Or do we already have his emplacement at the club, with players such as Ramsey, Iwobi and Wilshere.

Agree2 Disagree5

Ozil is not worth that, that's why nobody wants him. We should not pay him anywhere near that, he is a luxury we won't miss. Sell for 20 mil in jan if we can get it. If not, i don't think he is worth more than half the amount quoted but he would get a signing on fee as well to back it up.

HI Ed,

Is it true that Overmars is coming back as football director?


{Ed002's Note - No, there is no such agreement.}

A CB is inexplicably sold during the summer and now we have 3 CB's out injured. Hopefully, Chambers and Koscielny will return after the International break. However, Mustafi looks likely to be out for some time. With Monreal providing options at CB and LB, we really are short of experienced defenders. I recall this happenning in the past with Wenger, who clearly doesn't emphasise defensive cover, whilst often having too many forwards and technical midfield players.

It seems ages since we brought through any CB's from the youth teams and even now we only have injured Bielik that looks promising.

It's pretty much the same post to the one on the banter page. I take it we're light at the back then 😒.

Rumours that Walcott will be sold in January are emerging. As he has less than 2 years to go on his contract, is this part of a new policy at the club in order to avoid the recent problems we have had with players as their contracts run down?
Should we sell Walcott in January?
Should we sell in the summer when he has a year to go?
Should we extend his deal?

Agree5 Disagree8

06 Oct 2017 12:46:26
If we should or shouldn't could we? Who will pay his wages plus a transfer fee? So the question is irrelevant. He will run down his contract as he always has and then he will either leave on a free or sign a new deal on less money than he currently earns.
Depends what others offer once he's a free agent i guess, can't see us continuing to his current wage for a squad player.

30 Sep 2017 16:49:32
Ed, I know Wenger has a two year contract but with Carlo Ancelotti current position - will the club try to get him in place or tie him down to manage next season or will we continue as is with Wenger and miss out on a great opportunity?

{Ed001's Note - Wenger is in charge of his own destiny mate.}

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Oct 2017 06:18:24
Wenger will be at the club for at least the nest two seasons. However, I have always admired Ancelotti, although my current flavour of the month is Marco Silva wh appears to be doing a fine job at Watford.

03 Oct 2017 21:12:26
Eds, laccazette jokes he's trying to convince Greizman to join him at Arsenal this coming summer. Arsenal were never linked with him. Is there any slight interest in the player?

{Ed001's Note - there was a while ago, but, ironically enough, Lacazette was the option instead of him. I don't know of any revived interest, but it is a while until the window.}

04 Oct 2017 11:26:47
Cheers for the response eds. Lacazette, Griezman and Lemar, French trio up front. Would never happen. How could Arsenal possible make a profit buying those 2 lol.

04 Oct 2017 20:29:22
If the media are to be believed, I remember us reportedly having an interest in Griezmann when he was at Sociedad, just before he burst onto the National team and became an established world class player.

04 Oct 2017 21:13:59
If I remember correctly TPG it was the same time Carlos vela was at sociadad and doing fairly well. I'm sure I heard somewhere that we tried to involve vela in the deal as he was on loan at the time .

30 Sep 2017 04:15:50
Ed, any truth to these stories of Kroenke bids for full ownership?

{Ed002's Note - Yes and it has been on the cards that Stan Kroenke would to purchase the shares of Usmanov since Usmanov made a proposal to buy Kroenke out earlier in the year.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Sep 2017 22:40:41
cant see usmanov selling to stan. if it happens its a dark dark day for the club.

29 Sep 2017 04:04:52
Will Mustafi play against Brighton, which will mean he will have played all 3 matches in a week? My own thoughts are that Wenger will play Holding alongside Koscielny and Monreal.

Agree4 Disagree16

29 Sep 2017 08:05:54
Ooo what an interesting question. The answer is I don't know. I've been pondering the question all morning and have a feeling you could well be right. I guess we will have to wait and see.

29 Sep 2017 19:44:28
Interesting observation, Monreal will play I think, hopefully Chambers will get a go this week. By the way, can't wait to see Jack again after last night.

28 Sep 2017 14:26:08
With Ancelotti leaving Bayern is it possible he'd be considered for our next manager?

I know he was keen on the job after he was sacked by Chelsea just wondered if that'd still be the case?

Agree0 Disagree4

28 Sep 2017 15:59:39
There is no job available at Arsenal and if there was he isn't a long term soloution and I doubt Arsenal are looking at that type of manager. This is not an opinion on the man just that he won't be put manager in this lifetime.

28 Sep 2017 18:34:53
Have I missed something. Thought we had a manager.

29 Sep 2017 03:52:50
Please I hope not, not another wilting violet.

29 Sep 2017 07:09:54
Fantastic manager with the trophies to prove it. We have Wenger for at least a couple more seasons. The manager I have an eye on is Marco Silva at Watford. By the time Wenger goes, the old guard, such as Ancelloti, will probably be past their best.

29 Sep 2017 07:12:03
Shrinking violet.

29 Sep 2017 19:45:18
Would rather Wenger anyday over Ancelloti.

22 Sep 2017 16:53:15
Has anyone else noticed Bellerin improved after the Ox left?

Agree2 Disagree1

22 Sep 2017 19:53:51
Or he's just now playing on the right side 😂.

24 Sep 2017 07:38:01
So has the entire team, unbeaten since he left. Wenger was selecting some very odd teams in order to fit Oxlade in., such as Bellerin at LWB and benching Kolasinac! I must admit I didn't want Oxlade to leave, but now he left I don't believe that we miss him. I read an interesting article that more or less stated that although he had all the tools to be a top player, he actually wasn't that good a footballer. £35-40m in the bank to go towards purchasing a superior player.

24 Sep 2017 09:47:00
Ox leaving was always a good move for both player and club as would it be for Theo.
Both players were and are always going to be kids and bit part players in Arsene's eyes which wasn't good for anyone.
Ox will either stand or fall as a man at Liverpool while Theo will retire at Arsenal with a gold watch that will say thanks for the potentially great years.

24 Sep 2017 13:11:18
G62, it's cute that you think Ox will magically become a better player at Liverpool 😀.

24 Sep 2017 20:06:59
Hi Sharpie, Let's see how the lad does by May mate, I think he is a confidence player who needs someone to show some real confidence in him to find it within himself.
Time will as always tell.
