hey eds, do Arsenal have any intereset in Sander Berge this year? Remember there were some rumours last year. Being norwegian, i think that would be cool. he is a really interesting talent.

And what is hapening with max mayer?


{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of and all I know about Meyer is he rejected Liverpool.}

Ed001, i know its a long shot but are you aware of the reasons cited for him turning Liverpool down?

{Ed001's Note - no mate sorry.}

Thank you for all your wisdom eds:)

One (some) question to understand the mechanics of transfers and club management. Do you think a Lemar deal would be more likely if we manage to find new clubs for players like Wilshere, Debuchy, Gibbs or Jenkinson? Or if Ox is leaving us?

It seems Arsenal have a to many players we hardly ever use, and probably never will use. These kind of squadplayers should be youngsters, right? Is this a situation we ended up in, since we had a stadium to repay. Seems like we gave out new contracts, instead of replacing with better players. Hence the high wages to some of these players.


{Ed002's Note - No it becomes more likely if the buing club make a serious effort to match the asking price.}

Malcom om his way to Everton. Seri in Fulham. I guess they weren’t serious targets after all. Or did we just fail at negotiations?

I thought we really needed a winger like Malcom?

How about west hams signings so far. Should we fair them this year?


1.) 18 Jul 2018 14:45:26
It's all about the head to head battles for us because all we can control and I don't think we should fear anyone but respect everyone totally and equally. Man u or Brighton, Bournemouth or Liverpool they are all 3pt available but all have to be fought for and won, no gimmes and no lost causes in my opinion.
I think Dick will have the players focused 100% whoever we play and that will be brilliant to see.

I nearly got to the end g62! But I had to stop reading after the line “I think dick”😂.

Fair comment mate, lucky for you in used shorthand:-)

I prefer a longhand when dealing with dick 😅.

To each their own Geeza, or not it might seem :-)

Hello Eds. How likely is the Benatia rumours?

I think it make sence to bring in experience players like Benatia and Sokratis to help Chambers, Holding and Mavropanos break into quality CBs.


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what the "Benatia rumour" is. Try the search engine.}



14 May 2018 13:36:34
Hey eds, do you know when we could expect a new manager in place? Do the board/ club have a deadline in mind? or do you think we have to wait til after det world cup? Seriously, the season ended ages ago already;)


1.) 14 May 2018 15:38:24
If the Ed’s haven’t replied as they have posted this it could be because this question has been answered over and over.

Here’s a reply from ed01 on the rumours page

Ed001's Note - there is no deadline, with the two new guys on transfers, the club will take as long as it takes to get who they consider the right guy. It has taken the pressure off massively. I mean they won't want to leave it until pre-season is underway, they will want someone in for that, but it is not a rush. }

Also try search bar at the top of the page.

Hope this helps SLB.

Eds? Are Arsene cleaning out his closet, by letting go of so many players go? Seems like he is preparing the club for the next manager. Or do you think he is doing it for him self, because he wants/ hopes to extend his contract? It is very strange business letting Walcott, Coquelin and Debuchy go midseason. They would give us more depth in thess last months.


{Ed002's Note - Your reading things in to this that simply aren't tehre. Players are transient and come & go. Arsenal has a financial issue that means they have to be careful over wages going forward - so they have clawed some money back.}



30 Jan 2018 21:36:33
It's really difficult to stay an arsenal fan these days.


{Ed0333's Note - why?

1.) 31 Jan 2018 12:29:08
Nottinghan, Bournemouth, Swansea. We are not able to control and win the easy games. We are on a good flow of winning thougher games. So why do we f. up?

I'm positiv on the Aube and Miki signings. But we really need to sign a DM and a goalie and maybe a quality CB, while we wait for the youngsters to blossom. Ulike many others I think the Sanchez-Miki swap was great! 3,5 year of Miki for 4 month of sanchez, sounds like a great deal. And with Auba on top this could be really fun.

Hopefully we can lift the spirit for the europa league and win it. However I'm not sure how arsenal players will handle -12--18*C (0-12*F) in Östersund (forecast for next week) .

I like Perez for his intensity. Hard worker. I would say he is an improved Walcott. Maybe not a starter, but a decent squad player. Falls out of games some times.

Liverpool and Spur are very vulnerable with there lack of options on top.

Son makes a good alternativ for Spurs, but not great.

Liverpool have been lucky that Firmino has been fit most of the season. If not they would have to play Solanke. (Firmino, by the way is a typical striker supported by two inward forwards, wich means he sometime fall back into a false nine. )

Leicester played 4-4-2 and had Okazaki/ Ulloa, who complemented Vardy perfect and had different skills according to the game they played.

Anyway it makes no sense to sell Laca if not replaced by a different type if that is prefered. Rather sell Welbeck and get a Giroud/ Llorente/ Austin type of player (tall, strong, leathal in the box when pressing for a goal)

Because he is a goalkeeper?

BS! Manager at arsenal is probably the biggest job on the market. Stable finances. Solid structure. Good (under performing) team. Good backroom staff. Getting Allegri or Ancelotti is not guaranteed any success, and the board probably know it. It might be throwing money out the window and messing up a good system.

BTW, Guardiola took over Barcelona when he was 37 years after managing the Barcelona B team. Pochettino was 37 when he took over Espanyol, no experience. The fact is that we don't know much about Arteta and the type of manager he will be. The fact that Guardiola hand picked him as his assistant is a sign of quality, he is usually a picky guy.

backup information on economy!

Maybe Stan finds it more interesting to invest in a company that is 95% his, and not 67%.

I like 4-3-3. Think it matches our players better.
Bellerin Mustafi Sokratis Monreal
Ramsey Torreira Xhaka
Özil Aubameyang Miki

With great subs
Licht Holding Chambers Kol
Guendouzi Elneny Maitland Niles Smith Rowe
Lacazette welbeck Iwobi Nelson

Player by player I would say we have a team equally good as Liverpool (at least the team they had last year)

Oh wow! I heard the interview and thought it was just a matter of details between player and club. the fact he is talking like this just means he expects an agreement to come through. I think probably Ramsey want a contract similar to Özils since he is a key player.

I hope we will play a German team and Özil will trash them with his superior skills! Uli Hoennes should get fired for uttering sh*t like that!

Spurs would have to start the season without Lloris, Rose, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertongen, Dembele, Alli, Dier and Kane. Add the fact that Eriksen, Sanchez and Son will not follow the preseason and barely make it back in time. it might look tricky to get a good starting XI the first rounds.

City must manage without Walker, Stones, Kompany, Mendy, KDB, Sterling, and Delph. With Ederson, Otamendi, Danilo, Fernandihno, D. Silva, B. Silva, Aguero and Jesus barely making it back. This might be an very interesting start of the season.


{Ed002's Note - They will all be available to be picked.}
