Can any of the eds safely say that Emery will be the next arsenal manager? All reports saying it's going to be announced Tomorrow, the way everyone is reacting it really looks like a done deal. I hope there aren't any suprises there. Can any of the eds confirm, thanks for all the work.

{Ed002's Note - Since Arteta stepped back because of concerns he had Arsenal has spoken again to UE, has spoken with Henry and has held a board meeting (abeit incomplete). It is likely to happen as I understand he expects to have sufficient influence going forward.}


1.) 22 May 2018 20:42:47
Ed with the new manager, how do u see arsenal season going next year? Do you think there will be progress, decline etc?

{Ed002's Note - I think it is far less risky than MA. I have no feeling for where it will go.}


2.) 23 May 2018 00:17:40
Thanks ed, I can breathe a sigh of relief now that you have confirmed the likelihood of UE happening. I think he is the right mix of good and bad (more good than bad) . Someone like Ancelloti wouldn't have anything specific to prove and would continue the cozy club trend whereas MA would have been a Big big gamble but UE is young, dynamic and has a point to prove. He's got experience and is tactically sound. Positive times for Arsenal, hoping that everybody get behind the team now and we try and capitalise on the next season, where the eyes maybe on us but definitely the pressure won't be on us. That's happening after a long long time. What do you guys think?

It's happening guys, Arteta agrees terms to move to Arsenal. It's all over the place! Is it really though!?!?!?!?! 🤮.

The more I think about it, the more I can't believe the levels of negligence at the club. I mean, it's show a total disability to read out our own problems an give an efficient answer to it.
It's true that we can't give an opinion of Arteta's abilities to run the club before he get the chance, but his lake of experience is precisely what we don't need in this moment.
It's a decision made out of emotions and the possibility of a fary tale, I'm sorry but that's absolutely childish.
We have been humiliated around world football in recent years, and the possibility of a hidden super hero coming out of nowhere is really surplus to requirements.
Of course I will back him up if he is chosen, but at the moment it's seems as a childish solution to turn around our childish attitude about competition.


2.) 18 May 2018 16:39:23
the new man will not be there to run the club only to coach the team, that's why the new guys were brought in, and the problem with the club has always been the board, why people are only jumping on this bandwagon now is beyond me.


3.) 18 May 2018 17:13:34
You, as other, say "only coach the team" as if will be a minor task.
Whoever will coach the team need to be able to deal a damaged team in terms of the needed mentality to approach big games and wining opportunities, also need to manage big egos and sorted important defensive problems among other big taska.
Is there for anyone to see, that our club has beenn hanging for years in cozy culture and a difficulty to take personal responsibility for the mistakes. Arteta is an endogamic option, more of the same, hence no a real solution.
I write this hoping to be wrong but I'm convinced that we really need to look beyond and bring outside solutions to our club culture.

Hello eds, just wanted to confirm if Konstantinos Mavropanos has been sent on loan as wenger suggested or has been kept in the squad. Keeping in mind that wenger couldn't get Evans or Manolas, do you think we could see him make an appearance?
Thanks for all the work!
#COYG.

IndianGooner

{Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware he stayed put in January. No idea if he will get a game though.}


1.) 03 Feb 2018 09:10:05
Can't do much worse at the back than the others have been right.


2.) 03 Feb 2018 09:24:17
He’s in the Europa league squad.


3.) 03 Feb 2018 14:18:41
Would like to see him get some minutes. Looks big and mean, hopefully can turn into a good signing.


4.) 04 Feb 2018 08:22:57
Reports that Wenger was so impressed with him that he decided to keep him at the club, opposed to loaning him out. Clearly our new head scout had a big hand in signing him, Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan, yet Wenger seemed a bit miffed and said we know all the players. With the head negotiator starting at the club this month, the future is looking better and Wenger's total domination is slowly being eased.


 

 

16 Jun 2017 11:54:46
Hello my wonderful gooners and all the hardworking eds. Can any of the eds tell me Aubameyang's situation? And are Arsenal interested at all? Thanks for all the info.
Cheers.

1.) 16 Jun 2017 21:57:03
Eds are on strike☺if someone don't appreciate your work that is what you do.


2.) 17 Jun 2017 08:13:32
The sporting director was concerned about his price and PSG see it as too high. Look on euro pages.


 

 

24 Jul 2015 07:54:10
Hello eds
With benzema's agent saying that he is 1000% staying and the director coming out and saying we are in a search for a centre forward, certainly things have changed and may step up now. Can you tell us about the potential players that Harris is talking about? Do you know where Wenger has interests in CF's now that Benz is out?
Thanks in advance

IndianGooner

{Ed002's Note - Benzema is the player preferred by Arsenal. Arsenal may turn to Higuain as an option but the price may put them off. Arsenal will be interested in Reus if he is available. There is nothing new.}


1.) 24 Jul 2015 09:38:51
Thanks for the info ed
Cheers!


2.) 24 Jul 2015 10:40:37
Ed if reus is available there will be no doubt a lot of interest from other clubs. If that scenario came up do you think arsenal will financially compete with the other big hitters or would we back off.

{Ed002's Note - Forget the money, you are a football fan so it will just confuse you. If he is available Arsenal will be interested.}


3.) 24 Jul 2015 11:39:53
Well that's comforting to know. He would be top of my list cheers

Hello eds and my fellow gooners!
I think the board's mentality has been questioned often. But if they are able to get a good backgroom staff (keeping in mind that Arteta is sealed and just waiting to happen) we might have some positivity around the club, the players and the people Henry ljunberg or even cazorla as suggested have seen Wenger's mistake and may play a role in galvanizing us at the back. SM will do the required transfers, he has got a good hold on the German network of football, (Leno, Max Meyer, Soyuncu, jorginho, kouilibaly, seriously, all talented players to some degree) . For the first time we are going towards a direction that has so many roads of possibilities, maybe losing out and division of fan base is a possibility but these are the best odds we have had in YEARS, it has been toxic for a while now tbh but whoever comes in is going to and will get the due support, it's upto him to shine or make mistakes and bundle into a pile of sorry figures. Time will tell. We are riding on the thin line if excitement and anxiety.

Apparently a few years back when we beat City away it was Cazola who lead the revolt that forced Arsene to play Le Coq as DM that day.
Arsene admitted after that game that the change of tactics wasn't his idea and that the players had expressed their lack of desire to go out and get stuffed in the usual way.


2.) 20 May 2018 15:49:52
Yes gunner62, I just think we shouldn't underestimate our squad even before the ball is kicked. Let's wait and watch, we've waited a few years for this haven't we, we should be excited rather than anxious, but that's just my humble opinion, what do you guys think?!
#COYG.


3.) 20 May 2018 16:58:29
We were fed up with the groundhog season after season where one season of underachievement simply merged into the next and then the next almost seamlessly so what have we got to lose by being open to a different approach even if it's not what we were expecting.
To write something new off simply because it's different would be madness and with that approach we still be walking everywhere because the wheel was far to wacky an idea to even try out for some people.


4.) 20 May 2018 19:23:41
That's spot on gunner! Hoping for a good season!


 

 

17 May 2018 16:43:15
Hello eds and fellow gooners, the daily mail is now suggesting that henry will meet Arsenal representatives for an interview, is it usual speculation or do you see any substantial truth in it? Do you see him as one of the candidates? And also now that SM is scouting players, is sokratis an option? Thankyou for the brilliant work.

1.) 17 May 2018 16:57:59
They rang Viera so who knows.


2.) 17 May 2018 17:01:23
All we are reading is rookie ex players, arteta, vierra (albeit token gesture) and henry. No smoke without fire but it seems they are going for cheap rather than paying for experience. At least when the guy is appointed everyone will know what the ambition is. Although according to gazidis, we are looking and searching hard for the right man for the job.


3.) 17 May 2018 17:38:43
Steve would I be right in thinking you are missing Arsene a little and feeling a little lost without the campaign to get him out :-)


4.) 17 May 2018 18:00:02
I’m seriously hoping it’s nothing like that steve.


5.) 17 May 2018 18:17:04
No gunner, i just think that it obvious what we need and don't need. But i won't ever miss wenger, arteta or a n other. Its not that i think arteta may not be an inspired choice, i just think he is possibly on the face of it, the worse choice. I can't help it but i just don't see him as an arsenal manager. I could see henry or vierra or even adams, i'm sure about any of them either but i do see the passion for winning and class with them, i just don't see arteta. I don't know many who would have him as the main choice either. It just doesn't seem to fit.


6.) 17 May 2018 18:17:56
But when he wins the double next season, i may change my mind. Lol.


7.) 17 May 2018 18:21:51
Sano, so do i because we have a great chance to change things and we actually have a base to work from. We have a decent attack and atacking midfield. Unlike man u who were winning things with a fantastic manager with an aging squad.


8.) 17 May 2018 18:27:04
What two away wins in a row steve 😂.


9.) 17 May 2018 19:13:39
Well Steve it's hard not to agree with you, because Arteta never comes off as someone who would eat your head off If you weren't on his side. But my ray of light is that maybe because he's been around players like puyol, iniesta etc in his young days and has seen Guardiola, Wenger (and even Moyes, haha jk) , poch looks very impressed and a few current players (hector, Nacho) have previously said in their interview that arteta is someone who is destined to become a big manager. We can just get behind him and hope that this bold move works because in my head, Arteta is already our new manager and can't handle ozil 😶.


10.) 17 May 2018 19:23:12
I meant not sure about henry vierra or adams. I missed the not out. Lol.


11.) 17 May 2018 19:24:44
Sano, the away form was down to the poor defence. You don't win away if you aren't solid.


12.) 17 May 2018 19:57:28
Tony Adams Steve :-) have you taken leave of your senses completely man :-)
I'm not saying Artetta is the right choice but as we stand he's not anyone's choice as no one has chosen anyone yet.
Let's just wait and see because according Sky we ain't got to wait long as tomorrow is the big meeting day isn't it :-)


13.) 17 May 2018 20:36:46
Gunner, i have corrected myself, i forgot the not. My point is the other three as ex arsenal players are icons, nothing to do with their ability. We don't know any of their abilities really but i don't look at arteta in the same mould as the others and neither do most of the fans. As i have said i don't want a rookie at all, it was just where they are in afc folklore because that's all we have to go on all of them really.


14.) 17 May 2018 21:06:25
Have to agree steve. No rookie no bookie no hookie and no artettttttta!


15.) 17 May 2018 21:44:05
Gunner, the benzema transfer has juat reared its ugly head again. We have representatives talking with him now apparently. Lol.


16.) 17 May 2018 21:51:30
I agree with you Steve. To be honest all I want is the toxicity in the fanbase diminishes, it's really a sad affair. But that really gives no excuse to the owners and the board to get Arteta, surely there is a better option out there waiting to be contacted. I'm onboard with Rafa too, atleast he will be able to get some character and zest into the players. This decision is really a big one as it tests the mentality and ambition of our board. With a pragmatic approach towards our squad rebuilding, we really can do well next season.

09 May 2018 08:21:55
Greetings Eds and fellow gooners. I have a feeling that Ozil will be an Arsenal player next season, if the manager inspires him to stay that is!
But our best team should see Auba, Lacca and Mikhi ALL play WITH Ozil, we are overloaded with CAM converted to CDM- Wilshere, Rambo, even Caz when he got injured. So maybe do we see a change in formation irrespective of the new manager? 4-4-2 maybe on the cards if we get that one CDM that fits the bill. The way we are lining up since January is more of 4-3-3 with one of the front three roaming. Also do you guys think that one (two? ) of wilshere, xhaka, elneny, ramsey, cazorla, Ainsley, wilock should be sold? And who do you guys want to keep?
#COYG.

IndianGooner

1.) 09 May 2018 11:46:21
Ainsley Maitland-Niles must be kept 100% and be given more game time too for that matter. Brilliant little player and if he impresses the new boss, he'll be on that team sheet without a doubt! His preferred position is CM so keep him in a middle 3 with Wilshere and and new CDM.


2.) 09 May 2018 12:28:02
No doubt the manager that comes in will redress the imbalance between defensive and attacking midfield players.
DM: Maitland-Niles, Elneny and Xhaka.
AM: Wilshere, Ramsey, Ozil, Mkhitaryan, Iwobi and Cazorla.

I would release, sell or loan: Cazorla, Iwobi and Ozil.

Bring in a tall, athletic box to box DM and a wide attacking midfield player.


3.) 09 May 2018 14:21:23
Ive got a feeling we will massively regret letting Ozil go, if he does. I don't think he has ever really suited 'Wenger' football, but if the next man can get him back to his best, he will be such a valuable asset. His goals and assists from Real Madrid are mightily impressive, we need that Ozil to come back to form. Form a strong midfield behind him and let him flourish.

Hello eds, wanted to know the teams interested in Milinkovic-Savic, he looks like a beast, EXACTLY what Arsenal need. But with Lazio close to getting champions league football and teams like man united pushing for him, they may well have to pay from their deep pockets. Any information would be lovely. What do the other guys think?!

1.) 07 May 2018 14:38:54
If you use the search engine IG you will find what Ed’s have said about him . From memory Arsenal have previously had interest but will be well priced out of a move and others are interested (Man U ) I think . Best use the search bar at top of page .


2.) 07 May 2018 23:17:32
Okay, thanks mate!


3.) 08 May 2018 08:52:41
Also it’s worth browsing through the European soccer rumours that’s on the drop down list as well mate.
