Hi Ed,

Is there a specific domino that needs to fall for us to get moving on transfer business? Do we need to sell to buy or am I just being impatient?



{Ed025's Note - not a specific one alex now that sanchez is staying, i dont think the arsenal will do much more business though unless someone goes out mate..

1.) 16 Aug 2017 19:54:55
eds any truth that Gabriel paulista is leaving arsenal?

{Ed002's Note - Valencia are still keen on him.}

2.) 16 Aug 2017 20:15:07
ed if he does leave, knowing that we are interested in Van Dijk, would that make him our new number one target to replace Gabriel?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 16 Aug 2017 21:11:36
is Lemar still the target then ed?

{Ed002's Note - That is dead in the water right now.}

4.) 17 Aug 2017 07:52:02
Gutted to see you say that. I hope that changes but I can only see us going in with what they want if Alexis leaves.

5.) 17 Aug 2017 13:05:45
Thanks Ed!

{Ed025's Note - no problem alex..



20 Jul 2017 12:25:55
Hi Ed,
Any truth to us having accepted £10M for el neny? That would be amazing.



{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry, I have not heard of any offer, nor have I heard of Arsenal looking to sell him.}

1.) 20 Jul 2017 14:07:11
Elneny is a good player for us. Why on earth would ou be happy if we sold him.

2.) 20 Jul 2017 14:27:10
Elneny is class I would be gutted to see him go I'd rather jack and Theo go for 5m each than let him go.

3.) 20 Jul 2017 14:41:12
Elneny is a one dimensional player, who should not be considered up to our standard. I don't question his heart or how happy he is to play for us, but he is not more than stop-gap. I would rather we play Bielik or any other youth that might progress. Furthermore, £10M would be twice what we paid, so good business. We can take some of that cash and bring back Éboue.

4.) 20 Jul 2017 14:41:28
Also, thanks Ed for your reply!

{Ed001's Note - welcome, sorry I couldn't help more.}

5.) 20 Jul 2017 15:02:01
I think elneny is a great squad player. Doesn't set the world alight just slots in and does the job when needed.

6.) 20 Jul 2017 16:59:40
Agree D, like a few of our players, no better than filler.

7.) 20 Jul 2017 23:01:55
I like Elneny, and I think he was spanking good value at 5mil. Came from a good team who all play proper football, and he does the job when asked. As nice as it would be to have 30m pound players kept back on the bench just in case they are needed, but it isn't going to happen, and if it did, you just end up with unhappy players causing trouble. Therefore sometimes a players best attribute is that they are happy to be a squad player and step up when required. Elneny fits very nicely into this category.

8.) 21 Jul 2017 01:05:24
Every team needs fillers Steve.

9.) 21 Jul 2017 01:29:13
Dags i agree but ours seem happy just being that and that's probably the big problem. No ambition or talent to be the main course and take us to the top. Elneny is happy apparently at arsenal and doesn't want to move for first team football. Not exactly chomping at the bit. Not picking on him, there are more just saying. He comes in does a job and doesn't set the world on fire but doesn't thrill either.



24 Jun 2017 14:33:12
Hi Ed,

Any seriousness to the Emil Forsberg talk?



{Ed001's Note - the only Forsberg talk I have heard is RBL telling people he is not for sale.}

1.) 25 Jun 2017 13:56:10
Which is fine because really he isn't even close to as handsome as Ljundberg.



20 Jun 2017 13:02:56
Are we losing the Ox?


{Ed025's Note - negotiations are still ongoing alex, my personal thoughts are that he will stay mate but you never know..



16 Jun 2017 12:35:11
Hi Ed,

Any truth to these rumours about Kjaer? We didn't move for him for £5m before he went to Palermo. Why start now?



{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of.}

1.) 16 Jun 2017 13:01:21
ed can u tell us what's happening with Lacazette? The Lyon president today said that arsenal have made a "very very nice offer" for him but Lacazette will be staying.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate sorry.}

2.) 16 Jun 2017 13:51:24
time to make him an offer he can't refuse, ib.

3.) 16 Jun 2017 14:23:12
I See Lyon have just signed a striker from Chelsea on loan.

4.) 16 Jun 2017 13:21:05
Can ed002 tell me? I have respect for him.

{Ed002's Note - It has been made clear to me that I am not wanted on the Arsenal page. So Max Farnham has his wish come true.}

5.) 17 Jun 2017 06:44:43
Ed02.Hey you what you on about mate? Are you being serious? Don't be silly lots of us on here enjoy your comments mate. You've got to take the rough with the smooth mate you know that. What you letting things get to you for? . Get back to normal you've got lots of friends here.

{Ed002's Note - There is no point at all in my providing anything to this page.}

6.) 17 Jun 2017 13:24:21
Eds please don't leave this page again just ignore them or remove me.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, take it up with your spokesman.}

7.) 18 Jun 2017 12:12:26
I meant remove them not me lol.

Is anyone else concerned about our struggles against mid-level opposition? Is this what we should expect for the season? We were maybe unlucky not to have been awarded Lacazette's goal, but there is a distinct level of indecisiveness, and a lack of leadership. I'm mostly writing because I don't know how things can get better.


1.) 19 Aug 2017 19:58:42
Refs decisions usaully even themselves out over a season, the Ozil handball in the build up for our goal v Leicester?
It's swings and roundabouts for us like everyone else with officials decisions.

2.) 19 Aug 2017 20:15:06
Well on a positive note, we haven't got to play at stoke again this season. So happy days.

3.) 19 Aug 2017 20:25:16
There is certainly a lack of drive in the side, and the uncertainty off the pitch appears to be contributing to the hesitation on it. My view is get shot of Sanchez to a foreign club for as much as we can - nobody is bigger tha the club. Equally, ship off Oxlade-Chamberlain - he is not worth 150k a week in my view. Do what is necessary to sign Draxler, Van Dijk, and Seri.

It's going to be a long, miserable season otherwise.



12 Aug 2017 02:42:44
Couple quick thoughts post match.
1. Cech was late for Vardy's first.
2. Great match from Xhaka, Welbeck, Kolasinac
3. Ozil was conspicuously absent
4. Giroud is the new Kanu.




11 Aug 2017 21:45:17
Was Elneny started to showcase to Leicester why they should be happy he refused to sign for them?


1.) 11 Aug 2017 22:34:19
Elneny played well.

2.) 11 Aug 2017 22:55:22
I think the lad did well today and he also got an assist.

3.) 12 Aug 2017 02:07:32
In our half he and xhaka were awful, over the halfway line better but not a clue how to protect the defence.



11 Aug 2017 20:02:57
So we need a new CB.




29 Jul 2017 04:37:50
Everyone knows I love the academy and the lads who make it through the ranks. Just a thought: why even sell wilshere? I mean, for a few million for him to go to Turkey?! Let him captain the Europa league and league cup teams, something. Am i just wilfully blind?


1.) 29 Jul 2017 08:26:59
Good idea play a weaker side in the cups and let's really concentrate on getting the europa league place for next season so we can do it all again:-)
Sounds like a plan.

2.) 29 Jul 2017 10:04:35
I just don't understand the fascination with wilshere. If he didn't come through the youth system and was someone we'd paid money for we'd all be admitting that he isn't good enough.

3.) 29 Jul 2017 10:54:13
So what happens to the current generation if we keep holding on to players who had their chance and blew it? Keeping Wilshire will just push the likes of Maitland-niles further down the pecking order. Time to order that white stick Arsenalex :)

4.) 29 Jul 2017 15:05:34
Epping goober good point about the youth. Just feel that 6m is derisory.

With PSG looking to take Mbappe on loan, what are our chances of resigning Éboue? Solves the RWB we don't really have.

Does the sale of Gabriel, who wasn't previously listed as surplus to requirements, change potential departures? In other words, does this mean one of Chambers/ Jenkinson/ Gibbs/ Debuchy stays (maybe because no one is interested? ) ?


{Ed002's Note - Chambers.}

Awesome Ed. Thanks also for naming the tracks of the tunes played.


{Ed002's Note - You are welcome. The final track was of course the Third Rail and Run, Run, Run. One we all learned from Lenny Kaye back in 1972.}

Following up on Steve's post, the year we bought Ozil, we should have splashed on Higuain.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for this post, it's fascinating stuff. For all the moving parts, it seems like there is one rigidity, and that's in the number of teams involved in the break-away super leagues. If a foreign buyer comes in and buys Ajax, Leeds, Celtic or Marseille, presumably spending obscene amounts on squads, is there any possibility for access to the super league?


{Ed002's Note - No, that is not where it is coming from, but two of those sides are already involved.}

Was it Sokratis the Greek CB we were interested in?


{Ed002's Note - No.}

I'm concerned. We still have a lot of dead weight on the safe bill, haven't strength in the midfield, CB or ion goal. Most worrisome I think though is the situation with all the players whose contracts are ending. This will be a distraction.
