I had requested eds to ask Wenger to look into Jean Seri last week, we are linked with him in the papers today, thanks eds.

{Ed002's Note - You were told of interest in January.}


1.) 26 Jul 2017 12:10:41
This is not a paid subscription service Wesley.


2.) 26 Jul 2017 12:16:35
It's probably Ed25 who has spoken to Wenger on my behalf again.


3.) 26 Jul 2017 13:47:36
He probably had a word when he was tarmacing Arsene's drive way.


4.) 26 Jul 2017 16:12:28
Everyone knows that Wenger caramacs his drive so he can attract the hottest young boys from around Europe 😬.


 

 

17 Jul 2017 12:57:49
Im surprised Wenger hasn't tried to sign Ousmanne Dembele the Dortmund Player. If we are willing to put so much money on Mbappe and it seems impossible, why not try and get Ousmanne Dembele instead.


1.) 17 Jul 2017 13:43:55
agreed.


2.) 17 Jul 2017 13:56:00
But he isn't French.


3.) 17 Jul 2017 13:57:13
Sorry he is French. Ha ha.


4.) 17 Jul 2017 16:19:12
Hi all!

This makes sense as Dortmund are apparently said to be interested in giroud. giroud plus 10-15 mill on top would be a great swoop. i hope wenger uses their interest to get this guy. silky and dangerous. it would be a dream.


5.) 17 Jul 2017 16:22:41
Steve 😁😁.


6.) 17 Jul 2017 16:40:15
Dags I can't even blame predictive text.


7.) 17 Jul 2017 22:27:55
Giroud plus 10-15 million won't be accepted, Giroud + 40 mil, then maybe. He's the next cristiano ronaldo IMO.


8.) 19 Jul 2017 08:39:53
Giroud and 10-15 mil? Didn't know Giroud was worth 70 mil. Deluded.


9.) 19 Jul 2017 12:17:51
giroud is worth around the 25-30 mill benchmark IMO. dembele would be around 50-70 million. the only reason i didn't say too much money was that dortmund have many players in the same position as dembele while they severely lack depth at CF. If auba leaves they will be in deep rubbish with young players (though highly talented) to lead their line. If they become desperate a deal could be possible. desperation can lead to clubs to making tough decisions.


10.) 20 Jul 2017 08:47:31
I rate Giroud above Welbeck, and he doesn't get injured so much, I would be looking to unload Welbeck and keep Giroud . !
Surley when trying to strengthen your 1st team and your squad, its the weakest player ( in any given position ) that should be sold, thereby strengthening the whole squad . ?

Welcome Sead Kolasinac. Signing has been announced.


1.) 06 Jun 2017 12:08:46
monreal as a backup is our lb option sorted, but by going 3 at the back i guess kolasinac will be brilliant in the wingback position.


2.) 06 Jun 2017 12:22:52
Yep looks like Monreal will back up Kolanisac in the LWB position if he's not playing LCB. With Chambers back, strength in depth starting to look very good, even if Mertesacker retires and Debuchy/ Jenkinson leave.


3.) 06 Jun 2017 12:37:40
How has Chambers been doing at Middlesborough? Do you guys think he has a future at Arsenal.?


4.) 06 Jun 2017 13:37:43
i saw middlesborough play all the top 6 teams and in 12 games i think he was their best defender. although i'm not sure how consistent he has been for the remaining games, but i reckon he will get a chance.


5.) 06 Jun 2017 14:34:34
I watched a few games specifically to see how he was doing. 2 games looked very solid,1 game a couple of errors but generally thought he looked like a decent deputy. As he can play rb too, I'm guessing he'll come back as cover for CB and to replace Debuchy / jenks.


6.) 07 Jun 2017 04:00:36
I agree Lakes. He and Gibson worked very well together and I expect Gibson to be the subject of interest from some premier league clubs this summer. Chambers was equally as good (statistically better, actually) and if it wasn't for him, Gibson and Valdez, Boro would have been relegated way earlier in the season. Sadly for them, their RB and midfield was utter rubbish.

Jim that's my thinking too, Chambers as backup RCB and backup RWB is solid. Hope we don't blow big money on any more defensive recruits, we're very solid in that area.


 

 

15 Dec 2016 00:19:56
Playing 1 game a week is proving to be a big advantage, not sure if we'll be able to catch Chelsea, they don't look like dropping too many points at all .


1.) 16 Dec 2016 06:51:32
I fully agree. The Everton result was disaterous in our quest for the title. We need to get back on track and restore confidence with a much needed win at City. In the New Year, we get the superb Mustafi back. I did warn fellow Gooners that clever team rotation was necessary and I am sure Mustafi's injury was fatigue related. I know he was omitted against Basel, but perhaps his stats were already indicating fatigue. We will also have Welbeck back and a bit further down the line Cazorla. Ramsey should be back soon, possibly against City and Mertesacker too.


 

 

21 Aug 2016 20:46:58
Who are the strikers currently on par with Henry and Van persie
Suarez
Lewendowski
Aguero
Benzema
Dybala

None of them are available.


1.) 21 Aug 2016 22:05:17
van persie wernt as good as henry so don't put them in the same mould.


2.) 21 Aug 2016 22:24:40
Ibra, higuain, aubamayang would also get a mention. Two of them were and one could be.


3.) 21 Aug 2016 22:29:42
Everyone's available at the right price, whether Arsenal can or would pay that price is a different question.


4.) 22 Aug 2016 08:25:58
ZLATAN 😈.


5.) 22 Aug 2016 09:50:22
Benzema really?

For me, even Muller is better striker than him. A few years ago I'd have included Tevez and Atletico's Falcao in the list for sure.


6.) 22 Aug 2016 10:18:24
Everyone has a price.


7.) 22 Aug 2016 11:53:19
It appears that there is shortage of quality strikers and those that are of top quality are firmly entrenched at top clubs. Indeed, you have to take a huge gamble on paying absurd transfer fees and wages, to players of average quality.


8.) 22 Aug 2016 12:59:18
Rg while I agree, we also get absurd and astronomical amounts of funds coming into the club. Its all relative.

A wc central midfielder is critical for us. For a team playing possession football, we lack a top class central midfielder who is essential for playing this way. Other teams are just bossing the midfield against us like Chelsea, bayern. We need someone like Turan or veratti type, even Fabregas would do.
Cazorla- Good enough, but not playing.
Xhaka- needs a better midfielder alongside him.
Elneny, Ramsey, Coquelin, Ox when playing there, Wilshere are all not good enough in the center.
All top teams have better options than us.
Chelsea-Kante, Fabregas, Matic and now Bakayoku.
Spurs-Dembele
Liverpool-Coutinho
City-Toure, Fernandinho
United-Carrick, Harrera, Pogba.

All of these players, every single one of them is, better than what we have. This is where we are losing.


1.) 23 Jul 2017 09:45:55
Xhaka Xhaka Xhaka will someone tell me what's so great about Xhaka please?
Le Coq has had far more good games than Xhaka and did so last season too even when Le Coq was poor, Ramsey had at least as many good games last season as Xhaka and Ramsey was awful last season.
Can someone please make me understand why it's all about Xhaka :-) what am I missing?


2.) 23 Jul 2017 10:09:19
For me gunner one of the reasons we dropped out of top four and will be again next if Wenger relies on him.


3.) 23 Jul 2017 10:12:14
Was Xhaka bought to replace Jack? Not as a player but as an untouchable by most Arsenal fans because they eventually gave up on Jack :-)
Forget the price tag paid and judge every player on the performances they deliver, it's what all the best teams do.
Torres cost Chelsea 50 million years ago when it was a record fee but it didn't get him picked over those who performed better and cost less.


4.) 23 Jul 2017 10:24:46
Steve mate if Xhaka was a Chelsea Liverpool Spurs Utd or City player thier fans would be debating was it worth keeping him or getting rid after last seasons showing, only Arsenal fans could want to build a team around him mate :-)
I get he had a bad season and might get come good and is worth another season but I really don't get all this automatic choice over the proven Le Coq let alone build around him business.


5.) 23 Jul 2017 10:30:50
Strong physically and a leader.
Positionally disciplined.
Can pick out an excellent pass.
Can and does shoot from distance when its on.

Yes he might not have shown it at all times last season was too eager and rash in the challenge, but it was his first season, he's still young, was a lot of pressure especially from us lot, was coming from the bench or partner in midfield being rotated and only given the chance to settle near the end.

He showed his quality at international level and for his old club hence being thr captain there at such a young age.


6.) 23 Jul 2017 10:39:46
Gunner I hear fans of other teams calling him rubbish and that to me says it all. Not one would want him in their team. He may come good but until then he should never be spoken of as a shoe in, that's for sure.


7.) 23 Jul 2017 11:20:35
Steve being an Arsenal fan sometimes reminds me of the film Jaws and the scene at the beginning of the film where all locals set out to catch the shark.
Me and are Richard Dreyfuss and some fans are the the 4 blokes in the little rowing boat with their little carp rods.
" Your going to need a bigger boat ' we cry out but they just reassure us they will be home fur tea with the Great White safely in tow :-)


8.) 23 Jul 2017 14:38:16
Xhaka is an excellent passer, better than coquelin and Ramsey at that, doesn't give the ball away or get caught out of position like ramsey often does, can keep the ball better than coquelin and Ramsey and is stronger than them both, has a good shot on him as well. He was one of the best deep lying midfielders in bundesliga. He can be rash at times and doesn't seem to be the best at tackling, but I see tremendous potential. This is the season to judge him though. As for coquelin and Ramsey they are high quality, but not good enough against the big teams. They should be squad players if we have any ambitions on winning things. As for wilshere, the injury situation doesn't make him reliable and it's a doubt he will ever reach the potential that he was touted to have.


9.) 23 Jul 2017 16:08:50
Wesley Jim you can talk about potential for as long as you like but we've been doing that for over a decade now with Theo and for years with Wilshere Gibbs and Ramsey too surely at some point we have to start talking about what is reality right here right now rather than what might or might not happen some time some day at some point.
While we've been waiting for all this potential to materialize Kos and Caz have aged and we are no further forward than we were when they had years left at the top.
As we stand out CMF looks a real problem area and up till now Xhaka has proven to be and looked every inch part of that problem and most certainly not the proven solution to it.


10.) 23 Jul 2017 16:24:20
Jim and Wes I'm 100% certain if he played for a rival you would not be describing him like you are. You would be calling him a waste of money. You are both ever so slightly exaggerating his strengths and forgetting his weaknesses. Lol
He for me is a slightly taller arteta, he was limited too, too slow and couldn't tackle, create or score goals either. He isn't the presence we need or the clever player either.


11.) 23 Jul 2017 16:27:59
Coq and Santi were our best partnership since vierra and petit but even they were limited in the power stakes. If we can't have them together next season we need to buy to strengthen.


12.) 23 Jul 2017 16:43:14
But we do need to buy one player at least for that position, that is for sure.


13.) 23 Jul 2017 16:58:33
Wes we need a presence and a work horse in there.


14.) 23 Jul 2017 17:39:02
If Santi and Le Coq are our best paring then why wouldn't a Santi replacement and Le Coq also be?
The Le Caz partnership and the team was doing ok up until Caz injury.
Sign a Caz replacement partner for Le Coq then let Xhaka try to displace when his chance came through Le Coq poor form injury or suspension and all of a sudden the picture looks more rosy already, nit picture perfect like PREMIER LEAGUE champions or anything but suddenly finishing above one of Spurs Chelsea Utd or City doesn't look completely out of the question, then sign Lemar and Mahrez or a similar paring and all of a sudden top 4 is really worthy of serious debate because when I could see how it might happen with 3 more good quality additions.


15.) 23 Jul 2017 18:03:45
It's not easy gunner to make a partnership, Coq hasn't played the same with other players next to him. His partnership was working before it got split up. Arguably it was also the best Santi played too.


16.) 23 Jul 2017 18:29:54
Without a doubt Cazs game improved no end next to Le Coq and to be fair to Le Coq who have his other partners been?


 

 

22 Jul 2017 14:40:48
Is it really difficult to maintain pitches in Asia? Except Japan, I don't see them being good anywhere else, even in countries where football is moderately big and the country itself is doing well.


1.) 22 Jul 2017 15:04:32
The pitches at world cup in South Korea didn't seem to be ok too if I remember correctly.


2.) 22 Jul 2017 15:22:19
This is the bird's nest, where they had the Olympics and Chinese clubs are willing to spend more than European clubs as well, must be something to do the whether.


3.) 22 Jul 2017 16:05:37
Yep shocking pitch would have been a closer game if not for that 🙄.


4.) 22 Jul 2017 18:50:16
Surely it's the same pitch for both sides?


5.) 22 Jul 2017 19:50:05
I think the pitch was to arsenals disadvantage and benifitted Chelsea.


 

 

07 Jul 2017 03:12:23
Eds, please tell arsene wenger to sign Jean Michael Seri.

{Ed001's Note - why Seri? What is so special about him?}


1.) 07 Jul 2017 07:20:06
He seems like a good replacement for cazorla.


2.) 07 Jul 2017 14:48:00

Yes, he has been announced now finally.


 

 

25 Jun 2017 02:43:57
What do you guys think of Anthony martial, should we go for him if mbsppe goes to real? Martial no longer wanted by jose.


1.) 25 Jun 2017 07:51:13
Nahh! I think we should still go for Higuain, Morata and Martinez. Failing that Benzema or Suarez 👍.


2.) 25 Jun 2017 08:13:41
Alright Ed!
Up and about again mate. Where are you now?

{Ed001's Note - which ed?}


3.) 25 Jun 2017 08:26:28
Well it looks like you this time mate. Where are you! .

{Ed001's Note - if I tell you, do you promise not to turn up on my doorstep wearing nothing but a loincloth this time???}


4.) 25 Jun 2017 08:35:13
Your safe. It's in the washing machine alongside your stuff mate.

{Ed001's Note - that is not that reassuring, as it could mean you are naked, which is worse.}

No your safe mate I've still got the Thong .
😂😂😂 LOL.

{Ed001's Note - are you related to Ed003 by any chance?}


6.) 25 Jun 2017 08:54:19
Probably not .
I'm quite reasonable, educated, suave, and ridiculously handsome and also very modest.

{Ed001's Note - while that does sound nothing like any of the other editors, apart from myself of course, it also sounds nothing like you.....}


7.) 25 Jun 2017 09:03:06
👍👍 I'll get you back 😂.

{Ed001's Note - just please no more naked pics. I had no idea what the pics were actually of, but it needed ironing.}


8.) 25 Jun 2017 09:57:49
I'll get on it mate. Just got to find one of those extra long ironing boards 😂.

The papers are saying it's a united source's comments, don't think mourinho has used those words, and even if he did, those were in a private conversation, not to the press.
