Hi ed002 if it’s true that we are interested in a few players already, does that mean that a new manager is in place and has identified players he wants, or are we just buying what we need b4 a manager comes in thanks Ed.


{Ed002's Note - For now I am staying clear of anything in any detail Jelfy but the club has new senior folks in place and they will be the significant players in finding players.}

1.) 30 Apr 2018 09:45:23
From what I understand mate it's Raul sanllehi and sven mislintat who are the main ones finding the players now.

2.) 30 Apr 2018 11:05:28
Everything manager and player wise will be speculation until after Athletico. Areagant to think we’ll win Europe if we beat them but everything changes if we don’t make CL.

3.) 30 Apr 2018 12:48:45
Jelfy about a week ago Ed002 gave a detailed response on our targets. Check it out.

4.) 01 May 2018 07:46:31
What page mate.



30 Jan 2018 12:17:50
I've heard a little whisper about monlas from Roma.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 12:38:31
We have got to somehow get the Auba deal over the line first. I don't see it happening tbh despite the agreed fee. Too much needs to happen elsewhere.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 12:40:15
Am i right in thinking that his release clause is £30.8m? I think that's decent for him if its true!

3.) 30 Jan 2018 13:14:07
32.8 mate.

4.) 30 Jan 2018 13:48:34
Im not saying anything.

5.) 30 Jan 2018 14:01:36
Not a bad sum that. let's see how that develops, if it does!

6.) 30 Jan 2018 14:23:25
It’s 31.8 actually 😋.

7.) 30 Jan 2018 14:37:38
He did sign a new contract last month.

8.) 30 Jan 2018 17:25:08
Steve, you said you ain’t going to say anything. You are looking for trouble mate. 😜.

9.) 30 Jan 2018 20:05:11
Steve, should we bid 35m to get it done and not offend them 😘😭.



29 Jan 2018 16:33:00
Oh, so we did bid for him or didn’t we? Time to get him over the line.


1.) 29 Jan 2018 16:54:45
Just let it go jelfy. Don’t let them get to you. No point getting yourself all upset about it. Chin up mate 👍🏻.

2.) 29 Jan 2018 17:16:21
Sano quite right, let's just get the deal done, 50, 53, 57, 60 it doesn't matter anymore. Welcome auba.

3.) 29 Jan 2018 17:40:04
But Steve he is not coming right?

4.) 29 Jan 2018 17:41:07
Jelfy yes we bid for him.

5.) 29 Jan 2018 18:56:48
Try giving some info that you have been told and a certain person shouts you down, it was my relative's mate who told me and he also told me Sanchez was signing and ozil weeks before it happened. I won’t say anything next time I’ll keep it to myself.

6.) 29 Jan 2018 19:07:19
I appreciated it mate.

7.) 29 Jan 2018 19:10:41
Blimey Jelfy,
What's up mate?

8.) 29 Jan 2018 19:14:15
Jelfy, let it go, it was the amount i was disputing not the bid. I still say from what i was told we didn't bid 57 mil but i'm not saying that is correct either. From what i was told, why should we bid 57 mil when a figure lower than that would start the ball rolling. Thanks for your info, it did look as though i didn't believe what you were saying, which wasnt the case, just the amount. The post then went in a different direction.

9.) 29 Jan 2018 19:19:20
D yes i think and really hope he is. A deal is agreed in principal.

10.) 29 Jan 2018 19:33:05
I heard it's £55m, plus another £5m if we win the league in the next 2 years.

So, £55m than 😁.

11.) 29 Jan 2018 20:00:49
Dags that's probably not far wrong. Lol.

12.) 29 Jan 2018 21:08:23
Yeah hopefully he does. Good to see the club doing some decent deals this month. Or least trying.



29 Jan 2018 08:11:22
Like I said, I've heard of a bid in the reign of 57 million. I don't have to beg you to believe me and personally I don’t care what you think. That’s what I was told so I'll be hoping it's true.


1.) 29 Jan 2018 11:07:30
Heard the same, 63mil Euro bid accepted and being announced later today.

2.) 29 Jan 2018 11:33:40
I hope so mate, us gooners know that until he’s pictured wearing the shirt then it could still break down lol reports saying he’s missed a BVB hearing due to illness? Coincidence or genuine, who knows.

Just quickly ed’s, you’ve probably answered this many times before but briefly how do you find the information that you give us? Love the work you guys do and you’re always spot on with your replies so I was just curious. Thanks.

3.) 29 Jan 2018 13:23:00
Yes guiem balaguae saying £53 mil fixed fee with £2.3 in add ons. let's hope it all good.

4.) 29 Jan 2018 13:27:32
Also saying that’s not the only deal we working on.

5.) 29 Jan 2018 13:37:50
Sorry not 2.3. 2.5 add ons if we win champions league ha ha. He also says we aren't finished yet.

6.) 29 Jan 2018 14:59:28
So worth the penny pinching Steve if we save over 4m?

7.) 29 Jan 2018 15:26:02
Why have we saved 4mil sy, i don't get it?

8.) 29 Jan 2018 16:24:11
Oh looks like I was right steve or wasn’t I?

9.) 29 Jan 2018 16:49:40
SY is probably talking ab9ut the fact that you called for arsenal to jump straight to the 60 mil.

10.) 29 Jan 2018 16:54:53
Yes you were right jelfy, 57 mil but obviously dortmund only wanted 53 mil. Lol.

11.) 29 Jan 2018 16:57:08
Jelfy your sauce was obviously way ahead of the game.

12.) 29 Jan 2018 17:10:07
Kinloch, excuse me i have never said we should jump in at 60. If you read my posts i have only mentioned 53mil. That was the figure given by a dortmund representative for a deal to be even considered last week. From our point of view i said when they want 60 why do we start at 40 and drag our heels. We have lost out on the past by trying to deal too low. I think i have said 53 mil three times in the last week not 60. Still all that matters is that we get it done. Whatever it costs.



27 Jan 2018 18:11:29
Reports of a 57m bid.


1.) 27 Jan 2018 18:20:01
Not from arsenal.

2.) 27 Jan 2018 18:20:49
Lets hope its enough jelfy we seriously need to move on.

3.) 27 Jan 2018 21:11:12
From arsenal steve.

4.) 27 Jan 2018 21:22:10
It isn't they haven't bid 57 mil.

5.) 27 Jan 2018 21:48:26
Steve why are you trying to make out that you have inside knowledge 😂.

6.) 27 Jan 2018 22:16:16
Is that the same Steve who said "It will be done Tues or Wedn? " 😂.

7.) 27 Jan 2018 22:27:43
No dags that was the steve that thought, this is a new determined arsene/ arsenal. Lol. i'm not saying we won't get auba or not increase our offer, i'm saying we haven't offered 57 mil.

8.) 27 Jan 2018 22:35:36
Stargazer steve 😂.

9.) 27 Jan 2018 22:41:01
D I've never mentioned to anyone about insider knowledge. i'm saying we haven't bid 57 mil. If i'm wrong i'm sure you will be the first to let us know.

10.) 27 Jan 2018 22:46:49
Sano, silly me. Lol.

11.) 27 Jan 2018 22:57:52
What's it been now, one week?
And we are still haggling over £10m?

Bloody ridiculous.

12.) 27 Jan 2018 23:05:50
Dags penny pinching in the extreme. All that's needed is 57 mil and £1 and we can get it done.

13.) 27 Jan 2018 23:27:54
Or 57mil and an half finished Giroud.

14.) 28 Jan 2018 00:26:13
Lol chill Steve it was a joke. I know just as much as you do. Nothing.

15.) 28 Jan 2018 11:08:51
Dags, in steves defence he never said which Tuesday or Wednesday. It could be next week or next year 😜.

16.) 28 Jan 2018 12:34:35
When you buy a csr or a house - do you slwRs pY the sticker price?
At work when negotiating deals - do you always accept the first initial offer?
When’s 4m penny pinching

Interested in hearing your answer.

17.) 28 Jan 2018 13:03:30
Liverpool will come in for him.

18.) 28 Jan 2018 13:03:56
I only go after cars or houses o can afford and negotiate a price within range of the price quoted. I have never got a car or a house after disrespecting the initial price metioned.

19.) 28 Jan 2018 13:04:53
Oh and i don't sell to idots who try to disrespect my price either.

20.) 28 Jan 2018 15:01:43
Old steve is back I see.

21.) 28 Jan 2018 16:49:18
Totally agree with Steve.
If I have £250,000 to spend, I wouldn't be looking at 6 bedroom mansions.

Dortmund have always said £60m, we knew that was the ball park price before we even began negotiating, why waste everybody's time if we are not even going to spend anything like that on the player?

And if we are, why come in so far off the mark with £44m and disrespect the club and player, not to mention our reputation and supporters?

22.) 28 Jan 2018 17:14:15
Nobody knows how old he is jelfy! I assume people gauge his age on victor meldew😂.

23.) 28 Jan 2018 17:25:37
Dags, correct, i was recently looking to buy a car for 10k, i didn't waste anyones time looking at aston martins and making a cheaky offer, i looked at cars around that ball park figure and offered 5k. Lol.

24.) 28 Jan 2018 17:27:20
Sano my hero and the person i look to for inspiration is homer simpson. Demi god too all men.

25.) 28 Jan 2018 20:21:47
How did my post go from Aubameyang to buying a cheap car it has nothing to do with penny pinching other than shops with price tags everything with a price is negotiable houses cars boats planes players! You always make a mountain out of a mole hill, I’ve heard of a 57 million bid, if you haven't that’s fine.

26.) 28 Jan 2018 20:49:44
That seems in the ballpark to me. 😜.

27.) 28 Jan 2018 20:57:10
Time of the month jelfy 😂.

28.) 28 Jan 2018 23:11:12
By the way jelfy, i have heard 57 mil, you told me. That doesn't matter, what matters is we get the job done because he is the player identified and the price is transparent.

29.) 28 Jan 2018 23:47:55
Jelfy, you obviously are missing the point made by Dags and myself. If someone wants or advertises something / someone for a certain amount, that you are well aware of beforehand, you don't waste their time offering amounts that don't represent anything close. If we had offered 57 mil, the deal would have been done. It is widely expected if we offer 53 mil, it would be close to completion.

We know what is the figure, whatever it is, why don't we pay it. I thought you would know that. Who is making a mountain out of a mole hill, its fact. We have lost out on many players in the past because we have messed people about and ended up with the booby prize. that's the point.

30.) 29 Jan 2018 07:09:52
I ain’t missing any point prices for players are negotiable simple unless your the manager.

27 Apr 2018 12:26:01
Personally I think 200 million isn’t enough to buy a keeper and defence and midfield that would only get 4/ 5 players.


1.) 27 Apr 2018 15:18:21
At the start of the week according to the papers we only had 50 million to spend and people said it wasn't enough and now its friday and we suddenly 200 million to spend but it's still not enough in some people's view :-)
Kante cost 5 million and by my reckoning 200 million would buy us 40 players like him.
People are obsessed with money, you can still buy a lot of player for 15 to 20 million if you shop in right places and that would give us 10 to 15 new players.
Let's see what our new backroom people come up with over the summer, I'm sure they weren't brought in to point at the likes Ronaldo Messi Bale Salah and identify them as being good players, because if they were i wonder if there is any more jobs like that going because even i could do that :-)
Chill out give everyone a chance and let's see what happens.

2.) 27 Apr 2018 15:36:26
Perfectly correct G62. Arsenal are outside of the biggest spenders whilst been far ahead of others in terms of spending. That’s why mislinstat is in the fold as we need to spend money better and get more bang for our buck. But we can afford the odd luxury and I feel a good summer will involve 1-2 big signings and 3-4 good value signings with every chance of picking up a good freebie (Meyer) .

I tell you what it’s like the g62 of two years is bag gobbling down his optimistic meds 🤪.

3.) 27 Apr 2018 16:08:00
Something happend to me this time last week Sanogo mate, I can't quite put my finger on what it was exactly but suddenly the pessimism disappeared and all seemed possible again.
I can only put it down to the new brand of granola I've started having :-) .
We need to be open to giving everything and everyone who comes in a chance and the benefit of the doubt no matter if it's who we would have signed ourselves or not.
Johny Evans at 3 million? Not exactly someone who's going to sell many shirts on his arrival or have everyone dreaming of titles but would he improve our defence and leave us with 197 millions still to play with? I don't know but I'd be open to finding out if it happend.

4.) 27 Apr 2018 16:33:09
The thing is the man who comes in surely will know the defence needs sorting and depending on where he wants to spend the big fees and how many defenders then Evans might fit that criteria. Tell me an arsenal defender on current form who’s better lol. Maybe a bit extreme but seriously. We’re going to have to pick a few from the bargain bin a few from the sensibly priced and a few from the top end. All this combined with new coach and coaching staff then it’s a good base to kick on.

5.) 27 Apr 2018 17:33:31
I doubt it will all happen in one summer mate but over the next two summers 3 or 4 players from off other peoples radars 0 to 15 million and 3 or 4 established players with room for improvement for around the 30 to 40 million mark could see us back in the top 4 fight or possibly more.
I bet if we went through last summers buys from all premier league clubs you could come up with a very decent starting 11 plus 1 or 2 subs for 200 million or less even.
If money was everything Leicester would never have won the title, Burnley couldn't possibly finish top 7 and with what Utd City Real Barcelona PSG and co have spent Liverpool wouldn't have got past the champions league group stages.
Money can sometimes make things happen easier and quicker but where there is real will, real desire and real determination there is almost always a way.

Jelfy, we were just talking the other day about our poster of the season. For some strange reason, Sano thinks it's you.

6.) 03 Feb 2018 16:50:34
Who is the poster of the year? If it’s that clown who came back from the dead I was the one arguing with the clown on live chat sango

Ed 002 is that it for us or are we in for more treats.


{Ed002's Note - Many, many more treats to come.}

1.) 31 Jan 2018 16:41:37
Arsenal treats or the window in general lol thanks again ed.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 16:48:15
I know I do not post very often but I visit this site multiple times a day for the last few years now and wanted to say a big thank you to all the Edds.
Ed002 thanks for the great work I am glad this site seems to be more appreciative to all the eds and the work they put in, I am sure you still get the trolls posting abuse but that is just a fact of the internet it seems and the best thing to do is just not give them the attention I know you Edds still have to see the posts but I am glad you are all getting the overall thanks you deserve for you effort.

PS any Chance you can enlighten us on any of these treats we might be in for.

{Ed002's Note - I would only be able to give you a clue, or else I would be breaking a confidence. Think of the road that runs along the south side of Cincinnati Zoo!!!}

3.) 31 Jan 2018 17:13:48
I found a cropper avenue. Are we signing Roy Cropper?

{Ed033's Note - You're getting warm. It's more like Thomas Crapper

4.) 31 Jan 2018 17:22:02
or their is shields street maybe Connor Shields from albion rovers.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 17:17:04
google map Louis avenue hmmm.

6.) 31 Jan 2018 17:20:40
Louise ave - David luiz.

{Ed033's Note - Sounds good, unfortunately, Ed002 has gone for a drink

7.) 31 Jan 2018 17:21:21
Erkenbrecher Avenue?

{Ed033's Note - Uwe Erkenbrecher?

8.) 31 Jan 2018 17:29:10
Are we talking Zaha here?

9.) 31 Jan 2018 17:29:41
Charlton St. too is Bobby making a comeback? he's going to piss off the man united fans.

11.) 31 Jan 2018 17:34:05
Are we lining up Uwe Erkenbrecher for our next manager?

12.) 31 Jan 2018 18:45:22
i would reckon jefferson ( goalkeeper) but i would also suggest ed 02 has us on a wild goose chase.

13.) 31 Jan 2018 17:23:46
Hello Eds. Been a while!

Ed002 I looked for the street (Erkenbrecher Ave? ) . No idea if that is what you mean or if you are being clever with wording.

Can I ask if we are trying to sign a DM? I am praying that we get one finally.

Thanks guys.

{Ed002's Note - I thought itr was all clear?}

14.) 31 Jan 2018 17:30:57
Erkanbreacher? Have you just tricked us ed.

{Ed002's Note - I am not really a trickster.}



27 Jan 2018 22:59:30
75 million for Virgil 😂😂.


1.) 27 Jan 2018 23:32:59
They wouldn't get 75 mil if they sold him in this window.

2.) 28 Jan 2018 11:29:58
its not him lads its the goalie and also cb next to him changes weekly and right backs out all season. I still say longterm sound buy.

3.) 28 Jan 2018 11:58:14
Derby, he's a very good defender, not a 75 mil defender. I also think, its the way they play that exposes their defence.

4.) 28 Jan 2018 16:43:23
its a lot of cash steve no doubt but they were armed with coutinho cash. let's see when goal keeper is signed and keita slots in. he's better value than jonny evans at 25/ 30 imo. laporte probably best option money wise.



14 Jan 2018 20:14:33
I know most of you have been Wenger out for years, I am now fed up a bit and think we need a change, it feels like I’ve cheated on my mrs I feel gutted.


1.) 14 Jan 2018 20:56:12
If you need to talk mate, message Steve.

He'll cheer you up 😊.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 22:04:43
Wenger makes me feel like my mrs cheated on me.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 22:45:23
Everything comes to an end jelfy. This happens to every club 👍🏻.

4.) 14 Jan 2018 22:48:34
Agree jelfy. I still feel some things I read from our fans are a bit extreme. But my faith has gone. I honestly believe he is an excellent coach and one of the finest to sit in our dugout. But football has changed and he has not moved with the times. Same reason I worry bout anchelloti. We need someone young with fresh modern ideas.
