Hello Ed002, any idea who Emery number 2 will be or the potential candidates? Thank you and thanks for your hard work in helping us arsenal fans with the managerial position!

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - I don't but I will be with someone close to the scene in Belgium on Thursday. I will see what he thinks.}


1.) 22 May 2018 18:27:41
Thanks Ed, I dunno if you seen it but many reports saying t will be Henry.

{Ed002's Note - I don't get to see "reports" at all.}


2.) 22 May 2018 18:40:35
Anyway, again thanks for your work, and well played Ed001 you weirdly predicted it right.

{Ed001's Note - did I? Shows how good my memory is that I have absolutely no recall of doing so! It did make the most sense though, he is one of the few that is happy to give up control over transfers, he just wants to work with the team. He is used to having Monchi do all that.}


 

 

20 May 2018 10:09:59
Ed002 can you say if there's been an update with Leno, so many reports saying that he's close to joining.

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - I am not answer questions about transfers Dags.}


1.) 20 May 2018 10:42:27
Can Ed001 help?

{Ed001's Note - it doesn't change on an hour by hour basis mate.}


2.) 20 May 2018 14:22:59
Oh okay ed, only asked because of the way many media outlets reported it at the same time.

{Ed001's Note - ignore the media, it is just clickbait mainly.}


 

 

17 May 2018 22:23:53
Hello Ed002, there's many reports today saying arsenal are close to agreeing to sign Bernd Leno and Caglar Soyuncu. I know we don't need a manager to sign players because of the new structure so do u have any ideas if this is true because you've previous said there's interest but has anything developed from this recently? Thank you mate!

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - I am no longer providing any transfer information on the site. Sorry.}


1.) 18 May 2018 11:30:28
I knew my questions will get annoying, sorry ed mate.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with you DG.}


2.) 18 May 2018 17:24:56
Will you ever be doing anymore podcasts Ed. Loved listening to them.

{Ed002's Note - Not right now D16.}


3.) 18 May 2018 17:29:25
Hope no one has been an idiot again ed hate it as you know alit they have to spoil it for others.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing to do with you guys Stephen.}


4.) 18 May 2018 22:36:10
It’s because even Arsenal don’t know what the hell they're doing?! How can ED hit us with solid information when it’s literally a circus, where the ambition of the fans is way of the boards.


 

 

16 May 2018 19:15:50
Just a quick message saying thank you to Ed002, I've asked him many questions recently and he's answered most of them, Ed on behalf of the arsenal page, a big thank you for all your hard work! Have a good week mate.

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - Thanks but I am happy to help out a little. Clubs are getting in to the circus with Everton with a Plan A that has an issue to be resolved, WHU now on Plan B and not convincing people, Chelsea still Ona Plan A but by late tonight or tomorrow their ideas may need to change, and Arsenal setting a framework that is not lending itself to the better solutions - and perhaps heading for what I would see as a risky choice. It will be an interesting summer.}


1.) 18 May 2018 09:21:48
Could you perhaps tell if Chelsea have had to change their plan A, or is this also not worth the grief? - Completely understand, if you don't want to!

{Ed002's Note - I am banned from the Chelsea page - the vegetables won out in the end. I am sure one of the other Eds will explain exactly what happened on Wednesday evening.}


2.) 18 May 2018 11:45:27
Such a shame really, but I will try to ask the other eds. I'm sure you'll always have a place in many of the hearts on the Chelsea page, regardless of the idiots ruining it for the rest of us. Have a nice weekend!

{Ed002's Note - And you, thanks.}


 

 

15 May 2018 11:15:12
Ed002 because everyone is talking about it I'll rather just ask you, do u know if Arteta is being considered for the job?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - I understand he is a consideration as he might be willing to work in the framework where he has minimal control over transfers.}


1.) 15 May 2018 13:52:25
One thing that makes me think it's not going to be arteta is that quite a lot of staff have been asked to leave. According to the papers anyways. Which sounds like someone set to come in with their own coaching staff. I'd imagine if that was to be arteta then it would've been the same set up just him taking arsenes place. Might be completely off the mark with this.


2.) 15 May 2018 11:49:39
What do you think of this arsenal policy ed? Do you think it will work? It must seem strange to managers.

{Ed002's Note - Mainland Europe, or much of it, takes the approach of coaches primarily coaching and other dealing with players, transfers etc.. It can work.}


3.) 15 May 2018 13:02:58
If it does happen, is surely a decision that at least lift some eyesbrows.
How can any other experienced options isn't willing to accept this new structure? Is this an absolute immovable stand? Surely if you want to get a deal through with someone of your preference you have to be open to negotiate your position a bit.
Still seems to me a very weird and risky, maybe silly, decision.
Ed002, I'm very grateful for all the insight you've beeing sharing with us, but can I ask for your opinion of Arsenal appointing Arteta as Wenger's era successor?

{Ed002's Note - I think it would be a mistakebe


4.) 15 May 2018 14:21:03
So do I. The new structure shouldn't be a problem, but no way Arteta could be the only one who match the requirements.
Thanks again Ed.


5.) 15 May 2018 15:20:56
Ed's,

Thanks for all your insight on this. It must be quite painful dealing with us Arsenal fans at a time like this.

With regard to Arteta, do you know if he is considered the stand out option for the Arsenal board as various media/ betting outlets would have you believe? Or is it still quite an open discussion about the possibilities for the next manager?

I struggle to understand how we are at a stage that an ex player with no managerial experience is the 'go to guy'. I'm not saying he would be bad, it just surprises me that this is what it has boiled down to.

{Ed002's Note - The Arsenal fans are fine right now. I am pretty sure the board don't consider options as "stand out" or otherwise. If you want stand out options it is the likes of Max Allegri and Carlo Ancelotti. If the club want Allegri there needs to be a shift of tact by the club but as I said that does not seem to be the case - hence Arteta is to the fore. It is risky.}


6.) 15 May 2018 16:30:47
Extremely risky.

A lot of what you read (and yes, don't believe all you read) says that the club wanted a more united fan base which was part of the reason for AW leaving. For AW to cite the fan base in one of his interviews gave this some weight as well.

With the general reaction to Arteta being fairly divisive, it does make you wonder if they will bend to get in an Allegri type boss. Fingers crossed.

Does anyone know if Ed002 is discussing transfers?

DagenhamGooner

1.) 23 May 2018 11:23:37
Nope, only Mislintat 🙂.


2.) 23 May 2018 11:53:03

21 May 2018 14:33:02
Hello ed002 with Unai Emery in talks about the job and reports that arteta is not worried about his lack of power in having a say in transfers, is your expectation that arteta will sign still the same?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - I have had no change of view at this time.}


1.) 21 May 2018 15:39:28
DG i presume you didn't mean to put "not" in the post.


2.) 21 May 2018 18:11:10
Yeah, thanks mate, I think ed knew what I meant though.


 

 

20 May 2018 15:23:10
Does any ed know the role Thierry Henry is going to be offered? I think its assistant manager.

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - It is not like that. They will talk to him tomorrow and see where the discussion goes.}


1.) 20 May 2018 16:21:16
Ed with you thinking arteta is a risk but you also believing that Mislintat and Sahelini are great additions, how do u vision Arsenal’s future?

{Ed002's Note - They (the club) have made a mess of the recruitment of a new manager/head coach. I said some time back that the sensible approach was something else:

"On the plus side Carlo Ancelotti is available, lives in London and is interested in the position and can work within the revised management structure that Arsenal is putting in place. His age, Carlo is close to 60 now, might actually favour him as well as it may allow a succession plan with a future younger manager might be an attractive option. And that might open the door to an ex player (perhaps Henry, Bergkamp or Arteta or whoever to move in to a supporting role after gaining more experience."

And yes, Arteta is a risk. If it doesn't work out they will need to make a change and that is certainly not something they want.}


2.) 20 May 2018 16:39:02
I find it weird how they didn’t appoint Ancelotti as manager to be honest, but do you still trust Mislintat and the other guy to make the correct appointments on a limited budget?


3.) 20 May 2018 16:42:12
There's seems to be a lot of interest in contact ex players for the job (henry, arteta, viera) and other functions in the club.
Ed, do you know what is the thought beneath this approachment? I doesn't seems necessarily as a skills or competencies orientated approach, as neither of them has a very outstanding CV until now.
It's only a matter of remaining options?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest in Viera. Options have been dropping off due to various reasons - as I have generally explained. There are other options but this is where the club has dug the hole so far.}


4.) 20 May 2018 18:09:07
Oh my. I was hopping for some board's enlightened reasons commanding this decisions that we don't know about.
It is a proper mess.


 

 

14 May 2018 16:47:27
Can the Ed's give a brief description on what they think of Julian Nagelsmann, very young. only 30! Do you rate him etc. I know Ed002 he's not being considered for the job but I'm still interested, thank u in advance guys!

DagenhamGooner

{Ed001's Note - personally I rate the guy highly, it is his age that counts against him as it is difficult for him to command respect of the more egotistical players. With you having the likes of Aubameyang, I would suggest he would probably not be the right choice for Arsenal now.}


1.) 14 May 2018 17:36:48
Thanks Ed. I know u don’t know much about the managerial situation but do you know if he will be considered or if u had to make a guess of who will be appointed who will it be?

{Ed001's Note - I don't believe Nagelsmann is in the running. It would have to be a guess as, as far as I can find out, they haven't actually made a final decision yet.}


2.) 14 May 2018 19:12:54
Lool yes ed I don’t mind a guess, I just want to know your opinion mate.

{Ed001's Note - my guess would be Emery.}


3.) 14 May 2018 19:55:09
Can you see Arteta dealing any better with these players or even Vieira? PV4 at least has a pile of medals to his name.


4.) 14 May 2018 20:02:22
Would that be a good choice in your opinion ed? Or would it be a better choice than most available?

{Ed001's Note - he would certainly be a complete change from Wenger, though he is probably a step too far into obsession, a bit LVG-like with hours and hours of video footage that he wants the players to watch. For a short term lift, I think he would be a very decent option.}


5.) 14 May 2018 20:35:04
Thanks Ed. I wouldn’t want Emery. I really would like Vieira.


 

 

14 May 2018 12:42:47
From what Ed002 has said, from the remaining options available, either Vieira, Jardim, or the Germany manager. Ed002 said the likes of Henry and Arteta are too much of a risk to take now.

DagenhamGooner

1.) 14 May 2018 13:22:07
Or the nanglesman or how ever he is spelt.


2.) 14 May 2018 13:24:45
He said something like ". they won't, I hope, be considered. "
I also hope not, but the club has been very poor fulfilling fan's hopes lately.

Ed with the new manager, how do u see arsenal season going next year? Do you think there will be progress, decline etc?

I know he’s won things, but even Arteta will win trophies in France with that team. I feel like our team does need a younger voice with new techniques, and as much as I don’t want arteta, as I want Allgeri, I feel like it will be interesting to see what happens if he managed.
