Ed you've spoken before about Arsenal's technical director role but Edu from Brazil is being mentioned a lot all of a sudden, is it old news or is something developed?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - It makes sense given that their latest attempt to persuade someone else to take the job ended in failure.}


1.) 20 Apr 2019 23:52:36
Your referring to Monchi aren’t you ed? Do you think Edu is a good choice?

{Ed002's Note - No, not Monchi. Zubziaretta. Without knowing how it will work it is tough to say if Edu or anyone else work out.}


2.) 21 Apr 2019 00:23:51
Thanks Ed, I’m not an expert but it’s as if arsenal are shooting themselves in the foot.

{Ed002's Note - It keeps going back to the strange situation where Arsenal have Raul Sanllehi in the role of Director of Football meaning what they need is a new chief scout or a bit of a restructure as Sanllehi was very much a football administrator. The result is that the likes of Munchi and Zubziaretta would needs to adapt to work in a set up where they would be given the title of Technical Director or Chief Scout but would not have the overall say over the football side of things - and it is that which may make it difficult to recruit the right person - it certainly has so far.}


3.) 21 Apr 2019 12:17:26
Thanks Ed and Happy Easter!

{Ed002's Note - Chag Pesach Samech.}


4.) 25 Apr 2019 10:25:16
The structure at the club does seem odd. There appears to be little direction coming from above, we clearly need someone to fill the void. I yearn for the days when we had Danny Fiszman and David Dein. Despite his age I still wouldn't mind Dein returning in some capacity, which will not happen under Kronke.


 

 

30 Mar 2019 13:12:08
Ed is there any truth that arsenal have agreed to sign Gabriel Martinelli from a Brazilian team?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know I am afraid.}


1.) 30 Mar 2019 13:38:42
Don’t worry, thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - I am currently sat on an aircraft awaiting my departure.}


2.) 30 Mar 2019 16:07:16
Safe flight Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks. I am now in London - arrived safely.}


 

 

18 Mar 2019 16:25:14
Lol well Ed002 that's Overmars ruled out now.

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - As I said on February 6 after dismissing Monchi taking the role - "Overmars has done well in the Netherlands and knows the club well - if he could be persuaded to join it would be necessary to certainly give him powers over the youth system - so again it depends on the job spec."


1.) 19 Mar 2019 01:56:12
We have such an overbearing technical setup that I highly doubt we are going to attract anyone of quality. Most of the very best in their job - Monchi, Mislintat, etc. require far more control than we seem to be willing to part with. I legitimately have no idea how we are run between Sanllehi, Venkatesham, etc.


2.) 19 Mar 2019 20:57:08
I don't understand how it all works behind the scenes but to me it seems we had the right man in Sven but after attracting him in the first place we failed to give him what he needed to do his job properly.


3.) 21 Mar 2019 05:59:25
Agree g62. We only had Sven for a few months but what he has achieved in that time is extraordinary. Look at who we have secured, compare that to the 18 months before he showed up. Brainless club policy IMO.


 

 

14 Mar 2019 11:59:53
Hello ed I saw on a different page you said Pepe will be moving elsewhere, is that club Arsenal because I know you previously said we had interest in him?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - I meant elsewhere to wherever it was asked, and whilst Arsenal are among many clubs who have shown an interest and remain very keen, it it is most probable he will move elsewhere.}


1.) 14 Mar 2019 16:08:38
Bayern bound me thinks 😭
He woulda been a perfect requirement for us. Shame.


2.) 14 Mar 2019 15:07:50
Thanks Ed!


3.) 15 Mar 2019 13:08:50
Are we talking about the former Real Pepe, 36, a red card every other game and all round dirty player? Or, have I missed a trick and the talk is of someone else?


4.) 15 Mar 2019 16:45:09
It’s the Lille player Urban 👍🏻

Quick tricky winger with goals n assist in his locker, shame if we don’t do our upmost to grab him in my opinion.


 

 

24 Feb 2019 11:25:26
Being linked with Aaron Wan Bianka from palace, any truth that we are going to get him Ed's?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by Arsenal at this time and the priority is for other positions.}


1.) 25 Feb 2019 12:10:43
He sh@£s on Bellerin but, as Ed says, probably not iur priority position.


2.) 25 Feb 2019 12:01:25
Would love to see us sign him and more reports of Rabiot are emerging again. Hope there is truth in these reports, as well as Monchi arriving.


3.) 25 Feb 2019 12:01:25
Would love to see us sign him and more reports of Rabiot are emerging again. Hope there is truth in these reports, as well as Monchi arriving.

{Ed002's Note - I have already explained the situation with Monchi. As for Rabiot I am not aware of anything changing at all at this time.}

Hello ed001, I would like to know your latest opinion on Arsenal and the job Emery is doing so far. I know previously you weren't too impressed but what about now?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed001's Note - nothing has changed. It is still a case of you look dreadful, give up way too many chances and are winning by luck far more than judgement. Luck will eventually run out. Even Emery is not lucky enough to keep it going forever.}


1.) 19 Apr 2019 14:54:17
I’m playing devils advocate here but isn’t the sign of a good team to win when playing bad Ed?

{Ed001's Note - only if they have played well to earn the right to also win when playing poorly. Arsenal have not played well under Emery that I have seen. That is just a sign of luck. Whereas a team playing well makes other teams adjust their play and that is usually the reason for their performances to dip. But yes, it can be a sign of a good team. How many good teams over the years have been unable to defend? Very few.}


2.) 19 Apr 2019 15:10:43
Interesting. In terms of Liverpool I think this next 2 weeks will determine whether you win the league or not. But what about this Ed, if Liverpool don’t win a trophy this season, does Klopp deserve to be sacked?

{Ed001's Note - when he has made progress forward? Of course not. Just like Emery doesn't as, regardless of whether or not you are lucky or good, he has to have time to make the changes needed and prove which it is.}


3.) 19 Apr 2019 15:28:48
Only asked because he’s yet to win a trophy so I thought the Liverpool faithful may be fed up. Thanks Ed for your replies.

{Ed001's Note - any that can't see the progress being made do not deserve trophies anyway. Very welcome mate.}


4.) 19 Apr 2019 15:57:47
As a Liverpool fan I will answer about Klopp. If we end up with no trophies (hopefully not) , we would be disappointed surely. This season is an exception. Look at the points table, 85 points with 4 games to go. This tally is better than ' Invincibles' tally or any other team except maybe last year. This proves how much hard is to win the league. Last year we were unable to cross final hurdle in CL. This year we are already in Semis and can win 6th. I can see we are making a clear progress under Klopp. Players are entering into the peak of their career. We are going to get better. So Klopp has done much better than what anyone thought of.
P. S every pundits said City will win the league easily. Even you might have predicted that. Look at now where we are. Hopefully we win league 🤞.


5.) 19 Apr 2019 16:01:02
Win the league cup finish 10th and your a good manager because you've won something but finish runners up in the league with 90pts and runners up in champions league too and your not a good manager because you haven't won anything?
I've never understood this point of view myself.


6.) 19 Apr 2019 18:43:39
Emery is a brilliant coach. Well pleased with him in his first season for us. Looking forward to next season.


7.) 19 Apr 2019 21:27:15
With end of season reviews I feel not a lot of common sense is used either. If next season klopp had 3 season ending injuries like we've had to say allison, van dijk and firmino and finished outwith top 4 then would that be classed as a failure? Surely you have to look at what he's achieved on a consistent basis rather on 1 freak season where he's been seriously hampered by situations outwith his control. I feel position and qualification/ trophies are the main factors for judgement.


8.) 19 Apr 2019 22:54:30
Jury is still out on Emery for me - we get caught out too easily and not super impressed with his decision making. Napoli cut us open at times with ease but we won. We’ve been outplayed and seriously exposed at the back due to zero organisational skills or coaching from the sidelines. However there are greenshoots and its only season one. He doesn’t have a great pedigree and hasn’t shown me anything to say he’s exceptional or the right person. His first window was a disaster but he needs time. He’s got to earn his praise he doesn’t come with the job and that takes more than what I see at present. Fingers crossed because I want the boys to win and win big 👍.


9.) 19 Apr 2019 22:59:15
Top 4 or Europa league success will unquestionably mean a fantastic first season for Dick but it won't take away the fact that we have rode our luck in so many games, every team needs a bit of luck somewhere to achieve anything but it really has been incredible how many teams have failed to take so many chances we've presented them with on so many occasions throughout this season.


 

 

25 Mar 2019 09:35:48
Ed any information from arsenal wanting joe Aribo from Charlton?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}


1.) 25 Mar 2019 12:37:58
Sorry Ed, I just realised that you spoke about him a couple of days ago, when I read it I was thinking ‘who is this guy? ’ Lol.


 

 

08 Mar 2019 00:13:16
Is no one going to mention that Aubameyang was crap? Or is it not allowed? Iwobi was our best player and emery took him off. and played did not bring Kolasinac on at right back? I don't care this guy is the Spanish Arsene Wenger.

DagenhamGooner

1.) 08 Mar 2019 07:06:21
Auba has been terrible and looking uninterested for a while. You can put Xhaka, Ozil, Mustafi on that list yesterday too.


2.) 08 Mar 2019 08:04:18
All eyes on Sunday, beat United and last night gets pushed into the shade but lose and our league season is effectively done and dusted with a quater of the season, remaining, again just like last season was.
Let's face it the Europa is a back door into the champions league now days but 3 seasons back we all called it the the Spursday night league as we laughed at our nearest neighbours having to play in it, what does it say about us now that we've chosen to upgrade it simply because it's all we can manage to qualify for?
We need a manager who can make us defensively competent and if if Emery isn't it next season he has to go.


3.) 08 Mar 2019 11:13:40
Yes, i mentioned it on my post that got relegated to other posts for some unknown reason. He has been dire the last two months to be honest and i don't know why.


4.) 08 Mar 2019 11:28:39
He's always been temperamental which is why the none of the elite clubs took a chance on him, if we can get our money back for him in the summer might be worth thinking about to reinvest in a couple of £25 million player to strengthen our best 18 up.


5.) 08 Mar 2019 13:46:30
I would rather he produce his best for us, gunner. I ve not read he has a problem, just out of form. But if he can't turn it around, then him and ozil can go for me. They are giving us very little at the moment.


6.) 08 Mar 2019 17:11:57
True Steve I would agree it's betrer for us if he stays and produces big time, but we can't afford for him to simply fade away slowly but surely offering niether value on the pitch or in the market, if we can get the best out of him brilliant but if not get the best price for him asap while he still has some value to him.


7.) 08 Mar 2019 19:19:36
Have a word with yourself lads he’s one of the best forwards in the world.


8.) 08 Mar 2019 20:40:14
He certainly doesn't look it Welsh.


9.) 08 Mar 2019 21:01:07
Its difficult to shine as a forward when you are getting no service and the defence is under the cosh.


10.) 08 Mar 2019 22:23:26
Of course he is one of the best strikers in the world, on his day, we can't afford that to have big gaps in the timescale. I love the guy but like ozil, being good in words is not good enough, its what you do in practice. They have to produce far more for us on a far more regular basis. Then there is no question.


11.) 09 Mar 2019 10:24:38
The thing is players like Pea Lacasette Ozil need to play regularly together to become a force to be reckoned with but that's not what Dick thinks is best and it's Dicks call, but Dicks call has to pay dividends to be accepted.


 

 

23 Feb 2019 20:44:20
Ed's I have a question which I find interesting. Last year when arteta was almost going to certainly join arsenal, were arsenal going to spend more than they did for when emery came in? I ask because if I was an investor/ owner of a club, giving the manager job to someone who had no expecting in being manager is unbelievably risky! I know you might only be able to answer with hindsight but any view of yours is welcomed!

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - You are right - very risky.}


1.) 23 Feb 2019 21:11:37
We think Emery is under pressure just imagine how things would be if Artetta had come in and done the same as Emery has and simply carried on where Arsene left off, people would be suggesting Arsene was still pulling the strings from behind the scenes.
The conspiracy theories would be rife :-)


2.) 23 Feb 2019 22:27:27
Ed were they expecting miracles or do you think they would of spent heavily?

{Ed002's Note - It would not have made a difference financially.}


 

 

15 Feb 2019 22:42:05
Ed001, what do you think of the Ozil situation?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed001's Note - I just don't see the point in leaving the most creative player in Europe sat on the sidelines. You have to make use of the best players you have and he is the best you have.}


1.) 16 Feb 2019 07:49:11
Ditto ED, and the amount we are paying him, I don’t get it.

{Ed001's Note - I find it bizarre. Emery has nothing to lose by including him. If the team loses, Ozil gets the blame, if the team wins Ozil gets none of the credit, so why exclude him?}


2.) 16 Feb 2019 08:48:24
If we were playing well and looking solid at the back without Mesut then who could question Emery stance on Ozil or anyone else, but unfortunately we neither look solid or effective with our top earner either on the bench or left out completely.
Big brave decisions and leaving out top players are only good decisions if they pay off and the team is betrer without them.

{Ed001's Note - exactly mate. But my point on the blame thing was that he would not be the one being questioned when the team loses if Ozil was there. We all know the media love to witch hunt him and it would all be blamed on Ozil. So Emery then gets a pass on the bad performances because he is 'stuck with' Ozil and has to use him.}


3.) 16 Feb 2019 09:15:25
The thing is Ed001 every man and his dog knows that Mesut is a class act that Arsenal have never fully capitalised on having.
If you buy a player like Ozil then you have utilise him by playing a system that suits him not trying to turn a top creative player into a work horse.
We bought Mesut for a club record fee then Arsene stuck him out on the wing because he didn't want to move other players already at the club to accommodate our record signing we then paid him an absolute fortune in wages not to leave only for Dick to stick him in his own front room to sit and watch Xhaka on telly.
If any club in history has ever been guilty of mismanagement of a player then Arsenal's mismanagement with Mesut Ozil is right up there with the worst of them.

{Ed001's Note - it is not just Arsenal who have done so to be fair. Look at the Germans, he creates the most chances of the entire World Cup, yet they racially abuse him to the point where he doesn't want to play for his country any more. It is bizarre. One of the best players in the world, yet no one is willing to try and make an effort to keep him happy and figure out how to get the most out of him.}


4.) 16 Feb 2019 11:10:37
That’s what’s so annoying Ed. Put Ozil in the hole with quality in attack, a runner from deep and a defensive unit to ensure he doesn’t waste energy defending.

Torriera and Doucouré in the middle of midfield

3 proper centrehalves

2 hard working wingers like Bellerin and Kola to give width, pace etc

Se3ms so obvious when you see week in week out us getting exposed while having no real creativity - it’s a win win for Emery

Like at PSG - he doesn’t know how to handle big names or organise a team.

{Ed001's Note - it was the same at Sevilla, he kept falling out with their best players too. Fine when wins are coming, but as soon as things go wrong it causes fractures in the team.}


5.) 16 Feb 2019 12:01:50
The longer Dick pursues his current path on Mesut the defence and tactics and methods without clear and obvious improvement then the more people will question him and his methods
Nothing is any different now than it was this time last season or the season before that.
After 8 months it's not unreasonable to expect some kind of positive signs somewhere that people can get behind?
For a decade Arsene told us don't worry about what you see with your own eyes just be patient, I know what I'm doing, Arsene had the track record at Arsenal so people gave him time, gladly
Sorry Dick but I doubt that same approach will work long for you, your going to have to actually give us something we can see for ourselves if you want to be around long.


6.) 16 Feb 2019 13:24:05
Thanks Ed, I totally agree, I’m not trying to be negative but I am really not impressed with Unai Emery.

{Ed001's Note - he did seem an odd choice but he might surprise us all yet.}


7.) 16 Feb 2019 13:36:16
On Germanys opening world cup game Mesut was by far their best player but he's dropped for the next match because the media had already fueld the fans against Mesut before the world cup and Lowe bottled it.
Mesut needs a manager who actually both totally rates him and who isn't frightened of the media or fans and trusts his own judgement and Ozls ability to have the last laugh.

Because of Mesuts ethnic origin he is a very easy target for the media to get lots and lots of milage out of among the easy manipulated fans who aren't difficult to stir up into a frenzy of hate, it's the same with Rahwen Stirling in this county now he is the presses new play thing to destroy for their own ends without a first let alone second thought of morality about them.
Whoever first said " The press only put you on a pedestal so they can knock you down again " was spot on and there seems no limits to what some journalists and some papers won't sink to for what? Tomorrow's chip paper with the only lasting effect being on there victims long after the hits have dried up.
