Afternoon Eds,

I see some rumored links to Jannik Vestergaard. Can you confirm interest from Arsenal for a potential January signing seeing as Wenger said they will be looking to improve the squad?

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - Jannik Vestergaard is of interstes to Spurs, who tried to buy him in 2015, Inter and Arsenal. Borussia Monchengladbach won't be selling him in January.}

Shame. Looks a promising player who could shake up our spineless defence!

Aubameyang eyed as a Sanchez replacement according to Sky sources in Italy. Question. Why don't we just make the approach instead of waiting for Sanchez? He doesn't want to be at the club so let him go to City once we get the deal done not the other war around. Madness.

Glenn1308

That's what annoys me. Alexis is leaving. Replace him already. And why are we always linked with replacing why is it hardly ever adding to the team with a player like that.


2.) 04 Jan 2018 20:11:15
We should be buying world class players every year that’s why we are falling behind.


 

 

04 Jan 2018 08:12:52
Morning Eds,

Sky sports yesterday had Nabil Fekir to Arsenal on their Top 10 whispers a few times.

Is there any strong interest for a potential January or summer move?

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - Yes there is interest from Arsenal.}


1.) 04 Jan 2018 09:36:48
Positive news, thank you. I believe there is a lot of competition for his signature though. Do you reckon a bid may be made to get this done early?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly comment on the timings of bids.}


 

 

02 Jan 2018 15:35:29
Another 'off the cuff' rumor but do you know of any interest from Arsenal in Kepa Arrizabalaga? Strong paper links to Real Madrid and a young GK is something we surely have to look for ASAP! Cech is long past it now.

Glenn1308

1.) 02 Jan 2018 17:15:22
Replacing a key player before he retires or goes. Naaaaaa.

{Ed002's Note - To answer the previous question, Kepa Arrizabalaga was one of three GKs that Arsenal were considering as long-term replacements for Petr Cech. However, we have now entered 2018 and my expectation is that Real Madrid will look to firm up a deal ensuring Athletic get reasonable compensation before any foreign side arrives looking for a pre-contract.}


2.) 02 Jan 2018 17:59:13
Can you share the other two potential GKs? Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - Keylor Navas (looking unlikely right now) and Peter Gulacsi (won't happen).}


3.) 02 Jan 2018 20:19:05
Thanks for the quick response. Really hope they find some new targets then.


4.) 02 Jan 2018 21:49:45
Thanks for providing some info there. Do feel we need to get another gk In. I don't always feel confident in cech.


5.) 03 Jan 2018 10:24:29
Thanks for the response to that! We do need to replace Cech. He's clearly not the keeper he once was! You can't keep everyone until they retire can you what a load of rubbish haha.


6.) 03 Jan 2018 13:33:40
I heard we’ve offered Gunnersaurus a contract to play as keeper. Homegrown too so that’s a plus.


7.) 03 Jan 2018 13:58:57
I wonder if any teams are looking at Jack Butland currently? I really rate him and can see someone bigger coming in for him sooner rather than later (would love to see him play for us) , and with Stokes current position perhaps a move away is becoming more attractive to him?


 

 

31 Aug 2017 14:35:23
Can anyone explain what happened to Kelechi Nwakali and Takuma Asano?

I believe Asano has gone back out on loan but is he not worthy of getting some game time with Arsenal?

As for Kelechi Nwakali, i understand he was tipped for big things but haven't seen much of him either?

Another player i like to keep tabs on is Krystian Bielik. I know he's only 19 but when has age ever been a factor if you're good enough?

Glenn1308

1.) 31 Aug 2017 14:55:14
I believe asano has visa issues or at least he did last season. I may be talking out of my arsenal though.


2.) 31 Aug 2017 19:47:57
Kelechi back out to a team in Holland on loan.

Somehow, if we manage to pull off all 3 deals for Malcom, Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang that would sit nicely with me! I don't see all 3 happening to be honest, i reckon at most 1 of the deals will be completed. Aubameyang is a man who wants out just like Sanchez so maybe his attitude will calm at a new club? Who knows. A risk worth taking to get 2 or 3 seasons out of him when he's playing so well for Dortmund! let's hope we can seal this in January and focus defensively in the summer with a new GK also! #AFC :)

Glenn1308

1.) 16 Jan 2018 11:22:40
I like the idea of malcom giving us a bit of much needed width, but not sure about the others, as surely they all need to play through the same middle part of the pitch which is already occupied by any of Ramsey, Wilshire, Ozil, Xhaka, Iwobi, El neny, Lacca etc. We are already so narrow when attacking, so i don't see the point in signing more players who need to play through the same middle ground, unless of course you like seeing our entire attacking force occupying the same square foot of turf.


2.) 16 Jan 2018 12:36:14
Occupied with inconsistent players that aren't good enough. Plus if Ozil leaves then Mkhitaryan is an ideal replacment in the number 10 role! Aubameyang can play out wide and has done before so wouldn't be that bad for him and with Sanchez leaving then he would fit right in again. Wenger has a habit of playing people out of their preferred positions so we shall see how it pans out!


3.) 16 Jan 2018 13:17:33
The whole playing players out of their position is the main concern for me Glenn. Its like playing a front 3 with Welbeck playing as the left winger, it just doesn't work. I suppose the questions are that do you think if the Aubaloobabingbong rumour is true, he would want/ should play through the middle as the main striker, or would he be happy playing on the left? Where does he mostly play for Dortmund? Could he play alongside Lacca as a second striker, or if we do sign him as Sanchez's replacement for the left forward role, would we be better off going out and finding players who already play in that position more regularly, such as a Draxler or Lemar?


4.) 16 Jan 2018 13:29:21
Exactly that. He plays through the middle for Dortmund but he has played in the wide position of a front 3 so i don't think it will be much of a problem for him! Its just how he would take it is the main thing. Minislat seems to think he's a the right man for the job so if he can convince him to sign then that would be good in my opinion. Playing 2 up top is something i also think would work which is something we haven't done since Bergkamp and Henry. However, that would leave us to a back 4 which we can't do yet with the defence we have! Miki in no.10, Front 3 of Aubameyang, Lacca and Malcom :)


5.) 16 Jan 2018 14:29:48
And the kid wears a spiderman mask i mean come on! How awesome would that be wearing a spiderman mask in a red arsenal kit when he scores! haha!


6.) 16 Jan 2018 15:09:34
Ha ha, that's true. Well let's hope if he comes we see a lot of that mask!


 

 

14 Jan 2018 15:32:52
😂😂😂😂 - Need I say more? It gets to a point where you just want to laugh. and who in their right mind would want to join. United hit the deck and spent money which looks to be paying off. Long road ahead of AFC.

Glenn1308

1.) 14 Jan 2018 15:44:01
It is laughable really it is, I used to get upset but when you get rubbish after expecting it the hurt isn’t really there.


2.) 14 Jan 2018 16:12:42
It's sad to say but is not even a shock anymore these kind of results, You expect us to have a period in the game when it just falls apart. Like Banbury says it gone past hurting now it's just apathy now really with Arsenal. Defensivly we are a mess and until that gets sorted out first we will never move forward and any hope to catch the rest. You have to be hard to score against before anything else. One bright spark is Wilshere at the moment you are just preying that he can stay fit. At this rate who would want to join Arsenal under a manager that has just lost the plot.


 

 

14 Jan 2018 08:57:29
Why have we never even attampted to bring in Mahrez.? His performance yesterday against Chelsea proves he's good enough to play at the top level and is miles better than Wolly Walcott 😂.

Glenn1308

1.) 14 Jan 2018 12:53:24
Agreed

Malcolm
Mahrez
N’Zonzi
Evans

Step in right direction even if not the perfect signings but upgrade on Theo, Granit and Iwobi plus better short term cover in CD.


2.) 14 Jan 2018 19:02:02
Mahrez wants Liverpool, Sanchez wants city ozil United we are some mess . United and city fighting over Sanchez like we don't matter which is true and embarrassing . manager has to much power.


 

 

13 Jan 2018 17:00:04
Hi Eds, do you know if the rumours linking Ancelloti have any truth? Just seen another rumour saying they've agreed a €10m contract to take over in the summer. I knows it's probably complete nonsense and something like that wouldn't go unannounced but hey, stranger things have happened.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - The situation remains as I expalined it the other day. There is no change.}


1.) 13 Jan 2018 17:26:03
The only fact about ancelotti is he's moving back to london next month. Its obvious the rumour mungerz would latch onto that.


2.) 14 Jan 2018 19:03:02
He's chelsea bound again.


 

 

07 Jan 2018 17:25:53

Some of you lot are hilarious. Moan when he does nothing and moan even more when he does 😂 And you said it perfectly, Walcott WAS quality. Malcom is a darn sight better than Wolly Walcott so don’t play him down before he’s even done anything! Hardly anyone knew of Asensio, Casemiro, Sergio Roberto, Rabiot and now they’ve all come in to big clubs and proved their worth! 💯.

Playing at a team who sit bottom of the French league. give the kid a chance! You don’t get linked with top clubs for no reason and others, more appealing too have showed their interest! I’ll still be Wenger out but if we get Malcom and possibly Mkhitaryan then that with Lacazette if a decent enough front 3! Just need to sort out other areas too and sharpish!

Reports from sky italy say they understand we have scheduled a meeting but that’s as vague as it gets.

Sanllehi to start in Feb. That's a good appointment! Although 'head of football relations' because Wenger hates the term 'Director of football' haha.
Lemar and Leon bailey would certainly show inent but 2 prolific signings in 1 transfer window, let alone it being January with a club that is falling to pieces is highly unlikely.
A lot of positives but the situation is only set to get worse before it gets better. In numbers we have a squad full of players that either don't want to be there, have contacts about to end, are too old and need to move on or just aren't good enough! Sanchez (gone) , Ozil (contract) , Giroud (fed up) , Wilshere (contract) , Walcott (not good enough) , Koscielny (aging, achilles) , Mustafi (not happy) , Monreal (aging) , Per M (retiring) , Elneny (not good enough) , Le Coq (not good enough) , Cech (aging) Chambers (not good enough) , Debuchy (not good enough) . Need i go on? We have no back up for key players (some of which aren't top quality anymore anyway) in my opinion. Long road to success yet at Arsenal FC!
