According to ssn the Gabriel Paulista deal is done. Fee believed to be in the region of £11.2 million with Joel Campbell joining Villarreal as part of the deal. Eds, any idea if Wenger is looking at any forwards? With Podolski, Sanogo and now Campbell going out, we look a bit light up top no?!


{Ed001's Note - looks like that is all the transfer pot gone until the summer, so it is very unlikely. I certainly do not know of any move for a forward coming in.}

1.) 25 Jan 2015 09:46:33
Ed02 did say at the start of the window he was certain that all 3 of those guys would not be allowed to leave. Maybe with Theo and Ozil coming back, Wenger feels he has enough. No ball winning midfielder either then Ed's?

2.) 25 Jan 2015 15:20:48
Ed001 if u think wenger only had 15m to spend then I think your a little bit drunk

{Ed001's Note - well as I don't drink, I will ignore your inability to do maths and think it is £15m that has been spent. Obviously you have forgotten all the other costs plus that wages are also counted in his transfer budget, making it a totally different figure of near double that amount.}

3.) 25 Jan 2015 17:04:54
never seen paulista play, let's hope he can do a decent job, be a great cover and help out our defense.

it does not matter about budget, we got a player, and hopefully we can improve in the summer and buy a DM now.

if that means we needs to sell 3-4 players to buy one, so be it.

4.) 25 Jan 2015 19:39:52
I still think we have more much more



13 Nov 2014 10:17:06
Any chance of us giving Madrid £30mil for both Khedira and Varane in January?

Good business?


{Ed002's Note - None.}

1.) Cheers Ed, wishful thinking!

2.) Khedira is clearly using Arsenal's interest in an attempt to negotiate a new deal at Real. If they fail to renew, he will be in a strong position to benefit financially from being a free agent when his deal ends at the end of the season.
They will not sell Varane & if they do, the big boys would come in for him.

It's official lads :)

Bring in Alban Lafont (Toulouse) to learn from Cech and to replace Ospina in the squad - the player has huge potential and it was reported today that he has followed Arsenal from a young age - no brainer!

Mertesacker and Chambers to go (possibly Holding or Mavropanos on loan too) . Bring in Kalidou Koulibaly (Napoli) to partner Koscielny/ Mustafi.

I'd be tempted to get rid of 2 from Xhaka, Ramsey, Wilshere and Elneny (preferably Xhaka and Elneny) and replace them with Max Meyer (Schalke) and Jean Michael Seri (Nice)

Wouldn't mind seeing the back of Welbeck and/ or Iwobi if he were to bring in 1 of Nabil Fekir (Lyon) , Malcom (Bordeaux) or Leon Bailey (Bayer Leverkusen)


1.) 27 Feb 2018 23:00:18
i wish you were our chief scout lol. You seem to have identified all the weak players in our squad and replaced them with better alternatives.

2.) 28 Feb 2018 07:21:20
The players you have suggested come in are all good candidates in my opinion. but you have lost 4 CBs and replaced them with one!
I believe we need to keep Ramsey, Wilshire and element, flogging just xhaka and bringing in Seri, Meyer and another DM.
Upfront I think you're right. Iwobi out on loan, welbeck gone and bring in a proper winger, then give the youth opportunities. We have a lot of good young talent from what I've seen.

3.) 28 Feb 2018 08:17:49
That works for me - love Ozil but still struggle to see how we fully utilise him unless we play 4 4 2.



14 Jan 2018 19:50:28
Would you take this:


Alexis (Man Utd)
Walcott (Everton)
Debuchy (St Etienne)
Coquelin (Valencia)


Mkhitaryan (Man Utd)
Malcom (Bordeaux)
Evans (West Brom)


1.) 14 Jan 2018 20:07:38
That should save us from relegation.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 20:24:25
No not good enough.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 20:28:20
Nope I want more than that we should be signing someone else bcos Mkhitaryan would be a swap
Malcom for Sanchez
Draxler for Walcott
Johnny Evans if that’s all we can get I want better
And Mkhitaryan will have to do but I’d prefer martial.

4.) 14 Jan 2018 21:08:09
Would prefer epl experienced players


5.) 15 Jan 2018 02:58:34
id want bale to replace sanchez lol i know would never happen.



24 Dec 2017 09:27:43
Team after Jan:

Bellerin - Mustafi - Koscielny - Kolasinac
N'Zonzi - Wilshere
Iwobi - Ozil - Sanchez

Ospina, Holding, Monreal, Xhaka, Ramsey, Welbeck, Giroud.


1.) 24 Dec 2017 09:40:15

2.) 24 Dec 2017 10:06:10
6th then.

3.) 24 Dec 2017 10:38:57
I was thinking that myself.

4.) 24 Dec 2017 10:40:19
Any team than contains Iwobi or Xhaka is not our best available. There are question marks over many other players but unfortunately Xhaka and Iwobi look lost in the premier league.

5.) 24 Dec 2017 11:42:37
It's this for me (not including defensive signings just dealing with Sanchez leaving ozil staying)
Bellerin kos mustafi kol
Goretzka Wilshere
Draxler ozil lemar
The three additions will offerer a nice ballence between lefties and righties . All very technical and hardworking .
Some of lacazette footwork has been amazing his link up play is great and I see Sanchez has been strangling our play. It makes us 1 dimensional.

6.) 24 Dec 2017 13:34:35
Be happy with this and very achievable and realistic. Ideally we would strengthen centre back if a world class one came available which is unlikely.

Front 4 would give defenders nightmares


Ballerin kos mus kol

Ed002 - any chance of an update on summer targets?


{Ed002's Note - Tuesday looks likely for a Sharkopod.}

1.) 04 May 2017 19:00:59
Ed can you put a link to the shark pod on here.

{Ed001's Note - a link will be generated to it when it is done. Or do you mean the previous ones? If so you can find those here: Sharkopods

Ed002 - any chance of an update on summer transfer targets?


{Ed002's Note - Remind me next week and I will do a Sharkopod.}

1.) 30 Apr 2017 15:10:17
Haven't we just had one. Not that I wouldn't love another I was just saying in case the poster hadn't seen it 😊 Or has a lot changed since?

Can't comment on any of the others but Zelalem has been superb for Rangers.

I personally like the look of Krychowiak from Sevilla, no idea however whether a deal is possible or indeed whether we are even interested.
