Hi Ed,

You have been generous answering questions since Wenger’s resignation. Any idea when an appointment will be made? I ask only because, as you have said, the new manager will affect transfers, and we’re all desperately waiting for transfer news.


{Ed002's Note - I suspect that unless there is a change of stance then it could be a matter of appointing a coach who will have very little impact on transfers - so coach the players you are given. There are no timescales. Carlo A is still in London most of the time - perhaps a step back is due.}

1.) 14 May 2018 21:44:10
Ed02 in your opinion do you think there is any chance that ancelotti is being considered ( or someone else ) and arteta as no2.

{Ed002's Note - He doesn’t think so.}

2.) 14 May 2018 21:59:56
Do you see Carlo as a manager who can work with given players ed?
Conspiracy theory: board try for Allegri and fail, encourage Arteta rumours and then appoint Ancelotti as a second option, reducing the fans doubts about him compared to a non experienced manager.
I try not to complicate things, but definitely can't.

{Ed002's Note - He can and it would not be an issue but he would prefer some input.}

3.) 14 May 2018 22:20:28
I thought you said we should discount Carlo Ed?
Ed is the arsenal board just not prepared to hire someone because there seems to be much division amongst them? I feel like the fact that they got a decision out of Arsene early would of helped them, but clearly not.

{Ed002's Note - I did, but options are getting slim. ArsenalhS changed the structure and concerns exist amongst the options.}

4.) 14 May 2018 23:07:43
carlo is off to napoli. Being reported heavily in the italian press.

5.) 14 May 2018 23:23:48
Thanks for your opinion Ed02.

6.) 15 May 2018 00:27:06
ED, is Allergi not an option anymore?

{Ed001's Note - Allegri doesn't want the move now.}

7.) 15 May 2018 01:03:48
Thanks Ed, I know u previously said he won’t be considered but do you think Nagelsmann will be considered now?

{Ed002's Note - I would doubt it.}

8.) 15 May 2018 10:30:23
Ed002, can I just say, your input is so incredible. I used to run all over the internet and read every journalist for Arsenal rumours and transfer targets. It was like a drug that I had to keep trying to find a better hit off. The past few years reading your insight has been amazing. I literally ignore 99% of what I see elsewhere these days. I wait for you to pass your knowledge to us grateful goons, and then carry on with my day. Would love to know some of the Ed's backgrounds one day, just out of interest really.

{Ed002's Note - You are very sweet. All I know of the Eds is:
Ed001 - Florist
Ed002 - Rodeo Clown and Gentleman Adventurer
Ed003 - Florist
Ed004 - Trainee Chimney Sweep
Ed007 - Chimney Sweep
Ed018 - Florist
Ed033 - Florist
Ed333 - Florist}

9.) 15 May 2018 10:40:15
hmmmm. I could use a chimney sweep on valentines day.

10.) 15 May 2018 12:50:47
Apparently there's a trainee chimney sweep on this sure who might be . available. 😁.

11.) 15 May 2018 11:59:23
Ha thanks Ed :) . Picturing Dick Van Dyke chimney sweeps singing around the offices!



20 Apr 2018 12:48:44
Hi Ed,
Does this mean no new business until the manager is sorted?



{Ed001's Note - the whole point of the new backroom staff was to take over transfers etc.}

1.) 20 Apr 2018 17:31:31
Any idea who eds.

{Ed002's Note - What?}

2.) 20 Apr 2018 17:51:23
I think he’s asking what players are arsenal interested in, but not too sure ed.

3.) 20 Apr 2018 18:50:18
The backroom staff are mislinstat and sanalhi Steven.

4.) 20 Apr 2018 18:35:58
Yeah sorry that's what I meant any idea on which players.

{Ed002's Note - Something like this:
Bernt Leno (GK) - Bayern may yet be interested and has resisted moves to Barcelona and Real Madrid in the past. Napoli also see him as first choice. If he can't be first choice with Champions League football then he would likely not consider a move. First pick for SM at Arsenal.
Timo Horn (GK) - may be a viable option.
Jan Oblak (GK) - circumstances are such that there could be significant interest from elsewhere if he were to be available, and price a major stumbling block.
Alban Lafont (GK) - another player, like Sule, that Arsenal have made no secret of their long-term interest but have not committed at all.
Keylor Navas (GK) - Liverpool are keen as well.
Kepa Arrizabalaga (GK) - not going to happen.

Alvaro Odriozola (RWB) - if Bellerin were to leave - but won't want to leave Spain just yet.
Ryan Fredericks (RB) – watched a couple of times but a move is unlikely.

Chris Smalling (CB) - interest may leave with AW, but being English gives him an advantage. Harry Maguire might be a better solution.
Medhi Benatia (CB) - first choice in January.
Sokratis Papastathopoulos (CB) – Dortmund are trying to fend off interest but if Juventus were to win out it will free up Rugani.
Daniele Rugani (CB) – a bit of a wildcard but has been looked at by Arsenal.

Fabinho (DM/RB) - I expect interest to leave with Wenger, but he will be available.
Abdoulaye Doucoure (M) – another viable option, not as defensive as perhaps preferred but capable of providing a good solution.
Julian Weigl (DM) – interest from elsewhere will win out.
Wilfred Ndidi (DM) Wenger is keen apparently, but I am not sure that is shared by others.

Max Meyer (CM) - I think there is a very good chance that something can be done.
Tanguy Ndombele (CM) – has been watched several times by one senior scout who tells me that Arsenal want him - but I expect Lyon to take up their option.
Maycon (CM) - won't happen, he is heading elsewhere.
Jean-Michael Seri (CM) – still not interested in Arsenal and discussions are in hand with another side.

Nabil Fekir (AM) - it will be difficult because of his club, but something is possible.
Bernard (AM/LW) alternative to Fekir, but Inter (whose interest runs hot and cold) may provide a viable alternative to Arsenal for the player.
Oguzhan Ozyakup (AM) - Arsenal want to bring him back but it won’t happen.

Riyad Mahrez (RW) - if he moves it will probably not be to Arsenal.
Malcom (RW) - I am doubtful he would move to Arsenal unless two other clubs step away.
Andrija Zivkovic (RW) - maybe priced out of a move.

Ademola Lookman (LW) - has been watched at RBL.

Timo Werner (S) – not going to happen.}

5.) 20 Apr 2018 20:43:41
Thanks ed, do you think that the managerial position will be sorted before the end of the season?

{Ed002's Note - There is every chance but it may not be announced.}

6.) 20 Apr 2018 20:44:45
Thanks ed. Some players on that list I like a lot . Max Meyer seems like a no brainer. Fabinho looks a good option, I like Jorginho but I feel he is a step to far for arsenal. I like harry maguire a rough diamond perhaps but I feel we need to brush up on our defensive coaching, maybe comewith the new head coach. I’ve watched federicks a few times and like the look of what I’ve seen, really like his team mate sessegnon but feel again that we won’t be able to do that as he looks a real talkent. Fekir I would blow my load
Thanks again.

7.) 21 Apr 2018 00:20:32
Ed002 what a post! Thanks!

8.) 21 Apr 2018 07:41:45
With a heavy German influence from Sven Mislinstat and Spanish influence from Sanllehi, a German or Spanish manager and players is a distinct possibility.
Manager - Enrique
Keeper - A German is likely as our chief scout is German and Germany provide many top keepers.
Defence - Interesting, as many top defenders seem to play in Italy.
Midfield - Already looking at Max Meyer.

9.) 22 Apr 2018 09:21:46
Thanks for taking the time to reply ed.



27 Feb 2018 12:48:11
Hi Ed,
Would it be offside to enquire about updates regarding the management situation? Feel free to tell me to use the search function.



1.) 28 Feb 2018 09:52:52
Hi Alex, Arsene Wenger is still Arsenal manager as of the time of writing this, stand by for more updates as they don't happen:-)



12 Jan 2018 19:23:33
Hi Ed,

Besides Coquelin, whom else can we expect to see leave? Walcott? Sanchez?



{Ed002's Note - That seems reasonable Alex. Wilshere is likely to stay now - others like Calum Chambers and Mathieu Debuchy are possible. Chuba Akpom has embarrassed the club but will likely stay for a while.}

1.) 12 Jan 2018 22:01:55
How has akpom embarrassed the club ed? Just curious. Seemed to have potential early on.

{Ed002's Note - it is unimportant but a nuisance is not welcome.}

2.) 13 Jan 2018 15:57:43
Thanks Ed.



12 Dec 2017 17:51:18
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.}

Hi Ed,

Not an arsenal question but an Arsene question. Would like to still see him succeed in Europe. Any chance of him winding up at PSG?


{Ed002's Note - sure.]

1.) 03 May 2018 22:30:45
No european titles in 35 years. Why would that change anywhere else. There is a reason.

2.) 03 May 2018 22:54:46
Psg ship has sailed imo manager wise. France job.



25 Mar 2018 14:19:50
Hi Ed,

Any chance of an update on the Wilshere contract situation please?



{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything having changed. He will consider his options, perhaps talk directly to any non English or Welsh clubs who may be interested and consider the Arsenal offer and what else he has on the table at the end of the season.}

1.) 26 Mar 2018 12:10:10
Thanks Ed.



08 Mar 2018 21:57:36
Ed, you had mentioned that Ramsey is running down his contract. Would a change of management convince him to stay? What’s prompting his move and where would he like to go?



{Ed002's Note - I have no idea if he is waiting for a change of manager nor where he would like to go.}

1.) 08 Mar 2018 22:48:25
but he defienitly just wants more than he is worth then? note: i don't believe ozil is worth 350k per week.

2.) 09 Mar 2018 07:06:25
I understand the Ozil comment but his assists and goal stars are very impressive.

3.) 09 Mar 2018 07:35:51
I know Ramsey quite well as I live by his grandfather and he is in love with the club, whenever he’s in Cardiff all he talks about is how great it is to be at arsenal.

4.) 09 Mar 2018 08:41:59
Wow that's bad news Beefy because if he is happy with things at Arsenal best he goes.
No player should be happy with what this team is producing and how non competive a huge club like Arsenal have been for a decade.
But that's the problem those who are content with not competing but instead to pick up ever increasing easy money are taking us backwards.
I truly think Theo and Ox cared about Arsenal just as much as Aaron but finally decided to try and get more ballance between ambition and personal wealth and easy life.
Football is a sport and Arsenal are a football club not a luxury resort for those who enjoy an easy life, well that's the way it should be.



31 Jan 2018 14:03:15
Hi Ed,

You know I love Jack. Maybe even more than Eboue. With Ozil resigning and Mhki arriving, does this spell change for Jack?



{Ed001's Note - no, it is up to him what happens with him, there is a contract on offer to him.}

1.) 31 Jan 2018 14:19:55
We need jack, we need that person who can run with the ball from midfield, seeing xhaka and eleny constanstly pass the ball and making no progress yesterday proved that.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 17:05:14
Thanks Ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}



22 Jan 2018 22:16:41
What just happened?!

I just believe that we need someone new. Arteta is not new. He was a part of the problem.
