Hi Eds
Will we see any free transfers coming in or exits before 31/ 8?


{Ed002's Note - Reiss Nelson if Hoffenheim agree to Arsenal's request, perhaps some kiddies going on loan.}



08 Aug 2018 23:01:38
Ed, any chance of a quick run down of likely ins / outs at Arsenal tomorrow?
Really hoping for a few signings.



{Ed002's Note - The list remains the same aside from those previously left: Ospina, Elneny, Welbeck and Jenkinson seem the most likely. Vida might be an option as Besiktas want the money and they would like Ospina as has been explained.}

1.) 09 Aug 2018 08:55:03
What about off loading Ramsey?

{Ed002's Note - If you want, but I would not expect it.}

2.) 09 Aug 2018 09:24:10
Vida might b an option how can we enter the season so light weight at the back it’s been our weakest area for years, the attack looks as good as it’s been for years. Mina going Everton Soyuncu Leicester how can’t we match there offer? Am I the only one who thinks this?

3.) 09 Aug 2018 09:50:27
I haven't heard of interest in Elneny Ed's. Where might he go?

{Ed002's Note - OPtions will be looked at over the coming weeks.}



30 Jul 2018 09:13:17

Are we having any joy selling players to free up salary cap issues as well as to generate transfer funds.

We've had some limited successes but mainly youth, players out of contract with the exception of Jack.

Thanks .


{Ed002's Note - Wilshere has gone from midfield. Reserve striker Takuma Asano has gone on loan. Per Mertesacker has been replaced. Santi Cazorla has gone from midfield. Jeff Reine-Adelaide has left. David Ospina will look to move. Carl Jenkinson and Joel Campbell will be on their way out. Nacho Monreal may well move move. Mustafi might look to his options. We will have to wait and see about Aaron Ramsey but if Arsenal want to bring in another midfield player after Torreira, then perhaps he might look to his options as well. Lucas Perez is not wanted by Emery, Lazio has an interest but not at €10M.}

1.) 30 Jul 2018 10:37:38
Thanks Ed. They need to get a move on to free up space, wages and funds so that the new player (S) are ready to go and integrated into the team / system.

Thanks for the great info.

{Ed002's Note - Remember there is no August 9 deadline for selling any to non-English/Welsh sides.}

2.) 30 Jul 2018 11:11:39
True - but doesn’t help balance the books to fund a new incoming player.

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand, sorry.}

3.) 30 Jul 2018 11:19:30
So that would make Aaron Jenks as the most pressing issues to resolve because they would seem the least likely to move away from England.

4.) 31 Jul 2018 02:23:09
Surprised Perez is not wanted as there was all this fanfare about him returning for this season to be given a chance by Emery. Perhaps what he saw in pre-season wasn't enough.

5.) 31 Jul 2018 06:17:44
We need to sort out deals for Ramsey and Welbeck or move them on before the window closes.
Other outs:




02 Jul 2018 13:26:53
Dreams do come true

18-year-old Robbie Burton confirmed he has signed a professional deal with Arsenal, the club he has been at since he was just six.

Well done and good luck.




01 Jul 2018 11:16:03
Ed, a lot of talk about our defensive signings. I think we still need a good winger who can turn defence into attack very quickly and make us faster going forward.

Are we looking at any particular players, I saw us linked to Lucas Vazquez from RM but that seems far fetched.



{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Arsenal making any approach for Lucas Vazquez who Real Madrid will be willing to let go but they may want to try and use him as a trading chip in any transaction including players as part of the deal - an idea they are keen on this summer. There is also interest from elsewhere. In terms of other players I think the list remains pretty much as was:
Gelson Martins (RW) - Gelson Martins (RW) - interest is growing but there is also interest from elsewhere
Riyad Mahrez (RW) - Manchester City are now looking at another player so there is the potential for something to happen if the new management want
Malcom (RW) - I am doubtful he would move to Arsenal unless other clubs step away
Christian Pavon (RW/F) - Arsenal may turn to an old Wenger target but there is interest from elsewhere
Goncalo Guedes (RW) offered to Arsenal but they know that PSG have turned down a €40M loan to permanent offer from elsewhere and are offering him to other clubs at a higher fee - about double - player wants Spain
Andrija Zivkovic (RW) - priced out of a move
Ademola Lookman (LW) - has been watched at RBL but Arsenal won't offer guarantees - nor perhaps Everton - and the need for a LW as a starter has drifted
Emil Forsberg (LW) - hot and cold performances this season and a Wenger target - probably not
Steven Bergwijn (LW) - a wildcard - don't lose sight of him but no more than cover in the EPL at this time}

1.) 01 Jul 2018 11:54:07
Thanks Ed, appreciate the info. Good to see we are looking at options up front also.

Have a great Sunday.

{Ed002's Note - I would only expect one.}

2.) 01 Jul 2018 12:52:58
Thanks Ed. Some names there I wouldn’t mind seeing included in our squad. Hopefully Martins, Vasquez, Mahrez or Pavon are seriously under consideration 🤞🏻 Although, based on the rejections last time out I don’t see Arsenal pursuing Mahrez.

3.) 01 Jul 2018 16:21:20
Thanks Ed, is this the list u wanted to give us?

{Ed002's Note - This is what it is.}

4.) 01 Jul 2018 16:45:33
Brilliant info as always Ed002. Interesting to see no mention of ousman dembele, guess it was all paper talk then? Also the names are all of sporadic/ rotational players. The marquee type signing won't be made this window maybe! What do you guys think?

5.) 02 Jul 2018 02:24:19
I would say if we signed guedes, malcom or mahrez they would be pretty marque, the fee certainly would be- probably breaking our record. And in our current position with no champions league pretty good.

6.) 02 Jul 2018 04:17:22
Who would you all prefer out of this list? My first choice would be Pavon but I don't think there's a team in the league that would turn Mahrez down. Only thing would be the price - whatever Leicester are asking is probably too much.

7.) 02 Jul 2018 05:49:05
Ed002. You have said the need for LW startee has drifted. If I may ask, what made you think so? Lucas Perez? Or th thoughts on formation? I don’t believe we have an outright winger to play in the left or right. Your thoughts are highly valued and appreciated. Thanks in advance. :)

{Ed002's Note - The need for a RW is seen as more of a priority than on the left given that if a 4-3-3 is played Aubamayangadingdong can play on the left, Iwobi is versatile enough to play on the left, any RW added will be versatile enough to play on the left. In the view of someone still with the club, albeit in Russia right now and slightly concerned about his future, most of this will be down to Henrikh Mkhitaryan being played on the right rather than centrally.}

8.) 02 Jul 2018 12:12:06
Thanks again, Ed002. :)

9.) 02 Jul 2018 16:13:23
any truth to Lozano rumours Ed?

would be a perfect addition, right age, solid workrate.

{Ed002's Note - Hirving Lozano was certainly of interest to Wenger at Arsenal and Allardyce at Everton - but it is not clear if that Arsenal interest remains from last year.}

Happy with the team selection for today's game - COYG

Good luck today boys - want a big score line and a clean sheet 👍.


1.) 11 Nov 2018 17:26:36
Apart from Xhaka.

2.) 11 Nov 2018 17:35:23
BG there are still people think he's good, talk about blind. He is useless.



03 Nov 2018 19:29:00
Nice result and excellent display - outstanding performance and development in the team. Very impressed with emery's team. Well played boys! Well managed Emery

Special mention for Holding, Laca and Torriera. Well played boys.




03 Nov 2018 18:22:18
Interesting first half as Pool should have two goals but we've been by far the better team. Same again boys but a bit more ruthless in front of goal please. cut out the silly mistakes at the back eg Leno coming for that cross. idiot keeping.


1.) 03 Nov 2018 18:49:21
We are competitive in every game again and that's something to celebrate no matter how this game ends mate.
City are the only side to make us look out of our depth so far this season over 90 minutes and that was in Dicks very first game.
The improvement is enormous on what we've been used to the last 10 seasons against the big and smaller clubs.

2.) 03 Nov 2018 19:00:27
Very true.



03 Nov 2018 13:45:06
So, you know we can't defend for toffee.

We know Liverpool can score for fun.

We are at home and have a decent record there but torn to shreds in a matter of 15 minutes like Fowler did to us in 97 - we were so bad, Fowler asked the referee not to award a Pool a penalty. 💧

Do we put a bit of extra steal in midfield and try to concede less or do we try to our score Pool. ride the storm and then make changes or go for the jugular from the start?

Leno to start and we need Sokratis ( he's won me around - I was wrong ) , Torriera, Laca, Auba and Ozil to be 🔥🔥🔥.


1.) 03 Nov 2018 15:48:09
I hope we turn up in the first half, if we play the first half like our recent games they could be out of sight by half time, if we lose Utd will only be 2pts behind us even though they've been terrible!

2.) 03 Nov 2018 16:04:49
Agreed - we need to be strong and a lot better in the first 45mins than we generally have been this season. A strong first 45 will make an interesting game.

3.) 03 Nov 2018 16:46:21
Arsenal: Leno, Bellerin, Mustafi, Holding, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Torreira, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette

Subs: Cech, Lichtsteiner, Maitland-Niles, Ramsey, Smith Rowe, Iwobi, Welbeck

Guess Sokratis is still injured - only surprise is no Iwobi. Thought he would be more effective than Mkhitaryan. COYG.



01 Nov 2018 17:14:31
Any news on who is fit / suspended / injured for our first proper test this weekend.

Hoping for a defence of :
Bellerin, Holding, Sokratis, Kolasinac

Xhaka at leftback would be a disaster against Pool 🤞.


1.) 01 Nov 2018 17:57:07
Bellerin a major doubt, Monreal and Kolasinac slight doubts and Guendozi suspended after his sending off last night.

2.) 01 Nov 2018 18:29:37
Im hoping 352, we have three fit center backs and flood the midfield. Xhaka, in my opinion, whatever with Gouendouzi missing, will not be left back whatever. Its getting scarrier and scarrier. Holding mustaffi and socratis as a three, maitland niles torreira, xhaka (grrrhhh) , myki/ ozil, bellerin if fit or ramsey, with auba and lacca up top. But not sure Dick will agree with me.

3.) 01 Nov 2018 19:20:04
What's the worst than can happen?
We lose to a side 2 and 3/ 4 years into the making with our depleted side who are just 1/ 4 of a season in the making.
We've been embarrassed by worse Liverpool teams than this one when we've been at full strength after 10 + long years of planning.

4.) 01 Nov 2018 20:02:12
Gunner, i still expect a plan and i expect a plan to make us harder to beat in this game. We have good players, we have players who can hurt liverpool, i want to see us at least scaring them in their defence as they will be in our defence. Ww can get a result, i don't want to see us wilt without a fight, that's the least we can expect. It doesn't matter how long Dick is into his job, we are at home and we need to put into action every advantage we have. We need to be competative and there is no reason why we shouldn't be.

5.) 01 Nov 2018 22:29:14
In an ideal world you are right Steve and who knows what will happen Saturday? Absolutely no one because Saturday hasn't happened yet so absolutely everything and anything is possible.
If we should beat Liverpool they would be left asking more questions of themselves than we will should we get beat.
Under Emery we are still at preschool while under Jurgen Liverpool have entered the University years, they are a very good side and in my opinion Klopp has done an unbelievably good job but 10 games into Jurgens tenure they weren't anywhere even close to what they are now, so why do we have to be?
Of course being at home helps but it doesn't change players or the space time continuum :-)

6.) 02 Nov 2018 18:47:29
G62, flash fan?

7.) 02 Nov 2018 21:23:59
Hi stg sorry mate I'm lost, flash fan? I don't understand the question mate but it doesn't take much to confuse me :- (.

Baby, based on your posts - you need some assistance. May be that swap at home works for you?

No deal for me - we need to figure out how to play with him not without him. First step = Torriera in starting 11.

Cech didn’t put that on through Emery training - he’s built up over the break. Can’t credit Emery with everything.

So a disciplined Rambo is the square peg in a square hole - makes sense.


{Ed001's Note - I would say so. He has shown he can be disciplined when played out on the right for the team, so he has got the sense to follow specific instructions. Even if those instructions are to his detriment but for the team's benefit.}

EL as I respect the Invincibles and can’t stand the clubs who bought success - Chelsea and $hity.

Spot on - it’s a double edged sword. City benefit and make it harder for everyone else. Cheksea used to be able to buy players just to stop other teams buying them and loan them out to play against competitors but not them. they also help boost prices which made it harder to buy and make budgets go further.

You got me started now! I hate the false money in football from sugar daddies who falsely prop up teams. I have no real issue with Utd as their global brand, sponsorship etc brought their money in.

Zero respect from me to Chelsea and City for winning the league as I could win it with £1bn budget. it’s not sour grapes it’s just my principals which I know can be wrong and divisive. I also understand it’s ( opinion ) probably wrong due to FFP.

Rant over and I will put the toys back in the pram.

Does buying 4m lottery tickets impact your odds of winning the lottery. no guarantee but you would have to have your head up your arse to think it doesn’t, also an idiot to think a person with a single ticket can’t win.

Pep - why don’t you take over Palace and try to win the league on this budget. get you head out your arse as you sound like a clown. Lots of people respect you for the football you play, probably respect you more if you were honest.

He is part of our past and our greatest manager todate and gave me fantastic memories that will probably never be bettered as far as football goes.

Emery is the future and he’s started off great and given us hope again. Still a long way to cast a shadow on our greatest manager.

Sure you weren’t saying that but thought I would share some banter and opinion.

Well done Klopp - could have wined and moaned about the disallowed goal but concentrates on what he can control:

Sadio Mane's disallowed goal: "There is only one person who can answer the question and that's the linesman. That's football. If he thought the first situation was offside then I think he was wrong.

"But it's not going to change and we made more mistakes than the referee. It would have been cool if this goal could count. "

Nice to see that. Well played Pool also.
