Sorry ed I did search but could find exactly what I was after. Do you know if there's a change in heart about chambers being no longer required. I ask because Gabriel looks set to go and I don't recall you saying he was one of the ones we was open to selling. and if chambers goes I wonder if they'll step up a search for another Cb. Or do people believe it's because monreal and the new kolasniac can play there? Open to people's opinion on this.

Thanks either way Ed I appreciate you must be busy.


{Ed002's Note - I know nothing about any "change of heart".}

More odd Wenger deals. We appear to be selling Gabriel for less than we paid for him and at a sale fee that would be less than the cost of a decent Championship CB. Now news emerging that Inter are interested in Mustafi! Of course Wenger is intending using either Monreal or Kolasinac, both left backs or in Kolasinac's case a LWB, as CB's. Has he not learnt that converting players rarely works. You only have to look at Bellerin and Gibbs, both offensive players as youngsters, converted into full backs that can;t tackle or defend. The CB situation is really concerning as we only have 5 CB's once Gabriel departs. Of these Mertesacker is in his final season, Koscielny is in his thirties and carries permananent injury, Holding and Chmbers are both young and inexperienced. Indeed we seemed set to sell Chambers if Palace had met our valuation. I would love to see us sign Van Dijk and another CB, such as Johnny Evans. We need a RB that can defend as well as attack and next season we will need to replace the aging Monreal and Cech.

Ok Ed thank you for your reply. Enjoy your weekend!



06 Aug 2017 11:24:47
Hearing that we're willing to offer 50m for lemar now but Barcelona Liverpool and city are sniffing around. If we lose out to one of them I will be furious.


1.) 06 Aug 2017 12:06:46
It's the Arsenal way mate.

2.) 06 Aug 2017 18:48:56
It's always likely if you diver for long enough someone will make the decision for you.



25 Jul 2017 13:15:20
I did use the search bar and could only find an answer from ed002 in may and I'd imagine things may have changed by then. Was wondering if it's true that arsenal are interested in Ross Barkley. I thought he'd stay or go spurs but now the favourites are suddenly arsenal. Was wondering if ed could kindly shed some light on the situation regarding Barkley. Thanks either way.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by Arsenal.}

1.) 25 Jul 2017 17:09:27
Thank you ed. apologies that I asked the same question as someone else there.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}



24 Jul 2017 10:57:48
Thought I'd push my luck seeing as Ed002 has been kind enough to answer a few lately. No worries if not tho. I saw on the Liverpool page few weeks ago that arsenal wanted further discussions with Southampton regarding van dijk. Was wondering if anything came if this seeing as he has been left out of there tour. I'd expect if he moves it'll be to Liverpool but thought I'd ask.


{Ed002's Note - Neither Arsenal nor Chelsea has had any further discussions as they have been told he is not for sale. If that changes, Southampton know of the interest.}



20 Jul 2017 12:42:22
Hearing we resigned Wellington silva for 3.5m and immediately sold him for 5m indicating we had a buy back clause.


1.) 20 Jul 2017 17:00:56
Funny we didn't have the foresight with gnabry.

2.) 20 Jul 2017 22:59:48
Steve players ain't pieces of meat. What happens if gnabry didn't want to be bought back? It's not something that is all in arsenals control mate. Stop making up nonsense to beat the club with all the time.

3.) 21 Jul 2017 10:46:35
It's not nonsense, it's fact.

Now if we could all keep calm at this post I'm Intrested to hear some views. Quite a few people last season said how they'd like to finish out of the top 4 or think it'll do us good, how do you feel right now? Really has gone tits up this summer hasn't it.


{Ed025's Note - im afraid it has mate..

1.) 31 Aug 2017 23:42:20
D16 I put my hand up, I for one said that and I'm really disappointed as I was hoping a major changes at the club.
I mean what the hell I was expecting from our board and shareholders.

2.) 01 Sep 2017 00:15:05
Putting a bit of context. I think people wishfully thought a finish outside top 4 would catalyst for change, hopefully manager. Unfortunately as we have come to know over recent years, no one is held accountable for anything they do at our club, sorry their business. The players are not held accountable for dismal performances by our manager. He in turn isn't held accountable for any of his bewildering decisions by our non existent board. Rather he is rewarded.

3.) 01 Sep 2017 01:26:32
Arsenal mate I'm not putting it out of context. Least I'm not meaning too. People thought finishing outside the top 4 would be a catalyst for change. They was wrong. Same way I thought arsene finally learnt and will change this summer. I hold my hands up and say I was gullible and wrong. Same again next summer no doubt.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 23:24:05
It has Ed. I thought finishing outside the top 4 wouldn't be a wake up call it'll get worse from there. Then I thought after a promising start it'll be ok. Sadly not. Just wondered how those who wanted that feel now? I am lost for words what is happening.

{Ed025's Note - its bloody mindedness from wenger and kronke is rubbing his hands im sure D16, and for everything arsene has achieved at arsenal it will all go out the window if they are not even challenging for the top spots, now i know its very early in the piece mate...but it does not look good at all..



31 Aug 2017 19:00:51
Surely the fact we haven't rejected Alexis's bid means we might be working on something.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 19:11:42
Exactly my thinking, obviously trying something but imo he doesn't even need replacing, we need defensive players.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 19:36:40
To be perfectly honest, I want the man gone. Had enough of it all summer long.



31 Aug 2017 18:22:41
I'm actually stunned today. It's just looking so grim for us. A player we've bid for 92m has turned us down because he prefers a move to Liverpool. We really have got problems.


{Ed002's Note - No he didn't.}

1.) 31 Aug 2017 18:32:56
so ed what did happen then? did we even make a bid or is it just sly sports creating storeys for deadline day?

{Ed002's Note - It is too late for the medical to be conducted. Wardak had said earlier that Lemar's desire was to play in the CL and he also said at that time Arsenal had not confirmed the package for the player.}

2.) 31 Aug 2017 18:35:37
That's great you replied to this ed I certainly value your information than the journalists who I saw said that. May I ask if you know if lemar deal is dead or was all this 92m offer rubbish.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 18:39:45
Is that irony ed or is that a fact 🤣.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 18:46:44
Ed may technically be correct - but the general sense of the crisis at the club in this post is entirely right.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 18:56:10
Ah that's so annoying ed. dunno why we leave it so late. Is the club working on anyone coming in that you know of Ed? I need something to cling my hope on to 😂.



30 Aug 2017 21:59:25
Buzzing for deadline day tomorrow. Hope we actually bring in some needed players. No panic buys tho! Ed002 I'm not expecting blow by blow updates. But I was wondering if anything had happened with draxler. You said yesterday a team had been in contact with him the other day and we might make a push. Wondered if anything came of that or is it too early to say still. Thanks either way 👍🏻.


{Ed002's Note - I am thinking Draxler may be news worthy tomorrow.{

1.) 31 Aug 2017 07:41:42
Thank you Ed.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 09:50:51
Draxler has avoided us like the plague so far. Can't see it myself.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 10:12:26
Who knows Steve. Maybe some more stability will suit him.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 10:33:07
Can't see it but there may be a squeak at a loan deal. But it is a squeak.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 10:51:42
Maybe he's had enough of all the expectations being at an ambitious club brings 16 mate, maybe he fancies a more cosy club and life for a bit :-)
Exciting times indeed :-)



30 Aug 2017 07:54:22
I do still feel it'll be a shame to lose the ox but if he wants out then we must sell. However if he just wants cm does anyone think it's worth a try? He works hard prior too the last game. Great on the ball and counter. Personally I'd love us to drop ozil and play Rambo there. And put ox in xhakas place with a new DM to play alongside him.


1.) 30 Aug 2017 08:48:09
It's too late now but in Caz absence I thought Ox Le Coq was our best cmf combo.

I've stuck by him and always said maybe it's not him. But today was the last straw. We really have f'ed up. And lemar scoring twice really sums up the day. Absolute joke of a club we've looked today.

I love how people think they know everything on here. Who on earth said they wanted 60 a few weeks ago? Face it we haven't a clue what happens.

Whilst I do agree with you to an extent managers are asked questions and they answer so he has been approached by the press on these. 1) Monaco have stated he wanted to go us or Liverpool. We ballsed up leaving it late. So maybe January why not?
2) many managers hate the January window. Players prices are inflated even more and rarely any club wants to depart with their players but I agree with you I'd like it to stay open
3) why does this make arsene embarrassing. I agree it should've have been changed but 15 clubs was it chose this not arsene wenger. Couldn't they do something like if a player leaves after it closes you can buy one of upto the same value as the player that left. Would that work?
4) I agree he shouldn't have played him. Maybe he really was intent on keeping them. At the end of the day he doesn't have the final decision on these players surely?

And the last one with the contracts it is so frustrating. Is there a chance they did start 2 years ago? Who knows. But this does need to be looked into. Great post RG. Just trying to look at both possibilities although it is bloody frustrating isn't it.

To be fair RG you can't tell whilst scouting a player if he'll be happy after a year. But you're spot on it is ridiculous.
