According to Ornstein, Arsenal have approached Monchi for the Technical director role. would be brilliant if this happens.

He also noted that we are targeting 2 loan deals this month, with Denis Suarez being one. I wonder who the 2nd is, does anyone have any idea who the other one could be? He is a very reliable source and is rarely wrong.



01 Jan 2019 14:12:24
And will the club look at Benatia? I think he would be decent for us. And I've heard from someone that Arsenal are trying to tie up a loan deal for Keylor Navas. Don't know how accurate it is.

Joseph Citizen

Navas is good but that would be a baffling move. Leno is proving to be a solid keeper making do with a rubbish defence in front of him. Cech is an able backup. This whole window might end up being very weird.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 09:07:12
I envisage us brining in a keeper in the summer when Cech's contract expires, not before.

3.) 03 Jan 2019 03:55:08
Agree, Navas would be puzzling given our needs elsewhere.

As tough as it may be to accept, it looks like Arsenal will try to sign 1-2 players but will not be spending big.

If we make it to the Champion's League then I'd expect bigger spending in the summer.

Please no Cahill.



01 Jan 2019 14:09:01
What is the situation with our lb's? With Monreal leaving in the summer, is jose gaya still an option? Are the club still interested in junior firpo?

Joseph Citizen

1.) 03 Jan 2019 03:59:57
Emery seems to like Kolasinac, and so do I, so I hope he stays. He's better as a LWB than a LB in a back four, so it depends what formation Emery wants to go with long term.

Ricardo Rodriguez would be my choice, I think he could be available in the summer if Milan don't make the Champion's League.

Hey eds what's the latest on Guedes? Does he not want to move to Arsenal completely?

Hearing from sources in Germany that Bayern Munich wants to move on Kingsley Coman and sign Leon Bailey so that's where the rumours came from.

I think the club should take a look at Jeremy toljan.

Just watched a betis game. Quique Setién is a superb manager brings about the memories of lucien favre at Dortmund. still kick myself why we never went for him but as Klopp once said, the premier league loves "hollywood" managers.

Joseph Citizen

We already have a decent manager. The problem is that he inherited a weak squad and has lost 2 players for the season to injury, one player out with a long term injury and 2 players on their way out: Ramsey as his contract isn't being renewed and Ozil because he doesn't fit Emery's requirements, In addition their are some players who simply are not good enough.
Emery did a decent job when he brought in 5 players for £70m in the summer. He has his hands tied due to the poor financial decisions made during the Gazidis/ Wenger era and reportedly has to what until the summer to make permanent signings, when income comes in from new commercial deals and funds to pay the wages of new players will be freed up as players going out of contract and/ or being moved on are made available. It'stelling that the highest earner, Ozil, appears surplus to requirements and Ramsey who reportedly demanded high wages are being moved on. Both players, Ozil in particular add little to the team defensively. The attcking midfeild lacks any players that can help defensively and in the modern game, particularly in the PL, defensive ability throughout the team is essenatial. No longer can teams accommodate players that fail to contribute defensively. It seems that we may well sign Denis Suarez, a player I know little about and if we can get Ozil off the books, perhaps Ever Banega may join. There is talk of a swop involving Ramsey and Benatia, but thsi would surprise me as another defender in his 30's makes little sense. Indeed, I believe Emery would prefer to sign midfielders that can help defensively and will play his favoured 4-2-3-1, with 4 fit CB's and Holding to return next season, we have sufficient cover.

Chambers on loan to Fulham. Dinos will be the surprise package this season.

Joseph Citizen

1.) 05 Aug 2018 23:39:24
Can’t help but fear a lack of epl experience and pace in our centre halves this season - not being negative but statement of fact.

Surprised it’s not Holding going out on loan

We need reinforcements in defence not people injured / loaned or sold.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 00:12:18
Forgot about Mustafi but Sokratis and Mustafi don’t fill me with confidence as a pair.

3.) 06 Aug 2018 00:37:00
I found it odd that we extended Chambers contract as I could see nothing to suggest that he was a top six quality CB. Indeed I believe he is barely PL quality. Now we are apparently loaning him out to Fulham. That leaves us with 4 fit CB's. I am not over-impressed by Mustafi, and Mavropanos is full of quality, but a couple of years off being ready to be a regular first team player. I hope it means that we are signing another CB, we have been heavily linked with Vida and Soyuncu. Although it could mean we will utilise the 4 remaining CB's until the new year when Koscielny returns.

4.) 06 Aug 2018 04:15:12
I totally agree sy, I think we could still be in a bit of trouble at cb. Evans or a similar solid experienced cb would of been good someone who can offer a decent option, while the young cbs mature, but wouldn't halt there progression too much. Obviously I would prefer a top cb, but that's not going to happen.

5.) 06 Aug 2018 08:23:56
Not pre judging players until they've performed under emery doesn't go for Chambers then RG?

6.) 06 Aug 2018 08:31:16
If its true a very very strange decision and one that would only make sense if we brought someone in.
Hard to actually think this is real story, it's that bizarre.

7.) 06 Aug 2018 10:12:34
Strange move as he ony just signed a contract entension to then be loaned out, does Emery not rate him or is another experienced CB on signing on the cards. Myabe behind the scenes there is deal to sell Mustafi in the pipeline but need to get a replacment in first. without Kos we have a lack of pace in the CB area so surprised Chambers was loaned out.

8.) 06 Aug 2018 11:27:20
Chambers to me looked like our obvious 3rd choice CB ahead of Holding and the young Greek CB so he does seem a strange chioce to loan out.
It's a weird one for me but ho it's Dicks gig and if he gets it right what's it matter, but should it not work out so well then I don't think Dick will get the decade of understanding and patience Arsene got for so long despite making so many strange decisions on players that's for sure:-)

9.) 06 Aug 2018 11:29:44
Vida would be a joke signing. world cup hangover?



05 Aug 2018 21:58:40
Dicks will make sure we play to our strength. Junior firpo may arrive on loan.

Joseph Citizen

1.) 06 Aug 2018 11:24:00
Firpo, who's that citizen?



09 Jul 2018 09:32:54
Arsenal still looking at options with a new centre back and a wide player being the priority.

Joseph Citizen

1.) 09 Jul 2018 12:29:03
No. They’re done.

2.) 09 Jul 2018 15:44:20
Who is the wide player?

3.) 09 Jul 2018 16:52:04
Wayne Rooney spanner, he’s massive! 😉.

4.) 09 Jul 2018 23:13:17
And that's just his head.

The 3 at the back is killing us. We're playing 3 centre backs and all of them don't want to tackle. I'm not in any way panicking but I don't think Emery's 2 year contract will be extended.

Type I saw somewhere that he had a signed a pre-contract with Benfica in anticipation of being released from his contract. I don't know how true that is.

By being available I mean Barcelona have shown a willingness to let him go under a proposition that will suit all parties so yeah not everyone is "technically" available.
