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.}

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;)

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.}

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 kind of like Wenger, he seems like a decent guy. But he is surely the problem. Last year Mourinho picked up Pogba and Zlatan without CL, Conte picked up Kante and David Luiz also without CL. Players believe in those projects. No one believes in Wenger any more. Hard to get behind him. We throw 92 mill at players and they respond with a big "no".

Wenger said that alexis is not for sale. maybe maby it't true:) Lacazette, Lemar and Kolasiniac In, Ox (+ some others none first team players) out.

It might not look so dark after all.

Dear football god, plase let us keep (a happy) alexis.

Wenger can claw back some dignity by signing Lamar then sticking the finger to city! Show some nuts and spend some dough! Then I woke up 😂.


2.) 31 Aug 2017 17:18:16
If Sanchez stays and lemar comes in plus getting rid of some fringe players plus the two signed earlier then we would have been buzzing start of summer. Not the personnel we need but happy enough.


3.) 31 Aug 2017 17:53:09
Keeping Sanchez is nuts. He may have been our best . player (that says nothing) but his attitude stinks. No defender, no holding midfield player, no creative - the worst Arsenal team since the days of Terry Mancini!

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!

Players seems to be attracted to a "project" they could believe in. Morinho got Zlatan, Bailly and Pagba without CL. Conte got Kante and Luiz without CL. Klopp and Poch seems to get great players or hold on to players without anything but a top 4 to show for. We need a manager that has something interesting going on and have some pulling power. Simeone, Sarri and Jardim would fit the bill IMO.

I would let Walcott go, because he cost to much with his 100k salary. He is not a game changer, lack intesity in his play, he hardly ever win a ball back and tend to have sloppy passing. I rather keep Perez, i think has some of same intesity alexis have. I hope he could get some more game time before we throw him out him.

I agree our squad need some improvments, but I don't think it's as bad as some of you claim.

Ospina - Colombian int.
Bellerin - wanted by Juve and Barca, must have some qualities
Kos - french international
Mustafi - german international
Monreal -? Descent (? )
Kolasinac -? proven good LB in Bundeliga
Ramsey - wales int (? )
Wilshire -?
Xhaka - swiss int. proven good DPM in Bundeliga
Özil - german int. wc winner
Miki - proven great winger/ IF in Bundeliga
Laca - wanted by Athleti last summer, proven goalscorer.
PEA - proven worldclass goalscorer

interesting prospects.
- Holding, Chambers, Mavropanos, Maitland-niles, Wilcox, Nelson, Nketiah

players who doesn't improv the team IMO
- welbeck, iwobi, ospina, cech, wilshire.

I think it's a mather of coaching and tacticts. In both games againt athleti the goal came from unstructured defence and lack of awareness/ risk management that lead to goals. Yesterday Bellerin was wrongly placed. He should be aware of the risk of not being in line. last Thursday Mustafi and Monral "thought" Kos would handle it instead of securing for Kos.

If you look at the ups and downs of Chealsea last seasons, it gives me hope. And player by player we are not much behind Liverpool or Spurs.

Arsenal also have a tradition of holding on to a manager for 22 years! not sure how inmportent these traditions will be in the future.

I can't imagine we will go for for allegri, enrique, ancelotti or unai. They are no team builders and prefer to work with solid squads and huge transfer budgets. Simeone would be interesting, but to big change of tactics.

I would rather fancy sarri (Napoli, maybe to old) , favre (nice) or jardim (monaco) , or even the j. klopp mastermind. think they will fit arsenal better.

I really believe we can win it on thursday. the way we played last week was solid. intense presure and lots of chances. loved it. COYG.

I like the fact that we could go into the transfer window with only focus on the defence (DM, CB and GK) . Any upgrad of the attack would be bonus! Laca, Aub, Özil og Miki all on new contracts is amazing (allthoug I must admit that Welbeck, Iwobe and unfinished Nelson are not my fav. backup, but it might work) .

Lets hope they also they could hire some new defence coach.

I would prefer for Sarri or Jardim. I believe they closer as a legacy of Wenger. I would prefer evolution not revolution. And they seem to be able to get young or underrated quality players.
