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

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 . ?



06 Jun 2017 11:16:51
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

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

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.

Per Mertesacker video on working in mental health.

1.) 12 Oct 2017 20:32:25
Full marks to the man, I may not be his biggest fan on the pitch but I've always thought he was a very decent man.

2.) 12 Oct 2017 22:08:52
What on earth was Monreal doing at the end? Yes mert looks like a very nice



02 Sep 2017 03:02:30
We're in good for going into the man city game after beating arsenal 4-0 last week.

1.) 02 Sep 2017 07:04:38
Trolling us already 😂😂

Serious question about Chamberlain, if he'd been playing for any other team would you be happy Wenger had signed him for £40 million?

2.) 02 Sep 2017 07:20:13
Interesting question Stoner. Yes, Ithink I would have been happy if we signed him for £40m. He is still a young talented homegrown player. However, being in the last year of his deal £40m was a decent price as I don't think he is worth any more.

{Ed025's Note - in old money he probably isn,t RG but times have moved on, your average players are costing around the £30m mark now and the better ones really big dosh, i dont wish to harp on but arsenal need to get in this real world if they are to compete or they could well be left behind mate..

3.) 02 Sep 2017 08:01:38
Yes, Ed, but is Oxlade considered to be much more than an average player and the main reason he was sought after by Chelsea and Liverpool is that he is one of the better homegrown players that PL clubs have to sign to bolster their squads. You only have to look at last night's England team to see the complete lack of top quality English players. This can be shown by the fact that Livermore, a very average player, was selected. If there wasnt a limit of 17 overseas players in the 25 man PL sqaud, how many homegrown players would be in PL squads? How many homegrown players would get into a PL top eleven selection? Finally, there was absolutely no interest in signing Oxlade from any top European clubs outside the PL, which speaks for itself. Hence I believe £4om was as much as we could have expected to recieve whether or not in was in the last year of his deal.

{Ed025's Note - the price was a little high for me RG but a player is worth whatever someone is prepared to pay i suppose, arsenal should have brought in a replacement though, as a sack of money will not do much in midfield.. :)

4.) 02 Sep 2017 08:23:26
Yes, Ed you are probably correct, but the £40m fee was probably paid to secure a homegrown squad player and was considered the same fee whether or not he had a year to run as it secured the player.
As far as Arsenal are concerned Oxlade hasn't been a huge success at the club, often out injured and looking best at RWB or as an attacking wide player and yet wanting to play in a central attacking position where we already have the likes of Ozil, Ramsey, Iwobi and the emerging Nelson. I am certain that the sum received could be better used put toward signing a proper DM or CB.
As a final comment on Oxlade in 132 PL matches spread over his 6 years at the club amazingly he only scored 9 league goals and only 20 goals in 198 matches in all, an extremely poor return considering most of those matches were when he played in attacking roles.

5.) 02 Sep 2017 09:10:50
Pass completion of 84%, shooting accuracy 25%, cross completion 20% with nothing of note defensively as well as being poor in the air.

I think most of the time he's flattered to deceive and good money coming in but shameful we didn't buy an upgrade.

I can't say I'd have been happy if we were the buying club but who knows what Klopp can do with him.

6.) 02 Sep 2017 10:35:48
Stoner, like you I'd not be happy with that purchase. He's never been consistent and has very rarely shown any star quality. Maybe Klopp can get the best out of him, but I won't be placing any bets on that happening.

7.) 02 Sep 2017 11:23:18
for me he has no end product, can't cross, can't score and jumps up and down like a child when things go wrong for him, so no I would not be happy if we bought the mini hulk.

8.) 02 Sep 2017 13:04:53
Good posts Stoner

My Liverpool mate was going on about what a top signing AOC was. I pointed out his stats . he didn't realise how poor he was.

Of course a better manager might get much more out of him?



29 Aug 2017 17:24:27
Unbelievable, Sky reporting that we are negotiating a Sanchez-Sterling swap with us paying a fee on top of Sanchez!

1.) 29 Aug 2017 17:54:33
What do you reckon Wes?
Were Sky telling the truth or a lie?
And are you on Lee Macs or David Mitchell's team this week :-)

2.) 29 Aug 2017 17:59:22
I think they like winding us up.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 18:02:45
Great negotiators!
We bought Mustafi for £35m last season and loan him to Inter this season and will probably have to shell out £25m+ to sign Evans!
We bought Perez for £17m last season and will be lucky to get £12m this season
We bought Gabriel for £13.5m and sold him for £10m
Now we are swopping Sanchez a world class player in his prime for Sterling and having to pay for the privilege of getting an inferior player!
It beggars belief, the club are in a complete mess.
We give Mertsacker a new deal and don't play him.
We give injured Cazorla a new deal and he may never play again!
If it wants happenning at Arsenal I would be laughing my head off.

4.) 29 Aug 2017 18:14:47
Surely they should pay us to take sterling we're short of defenders is managala worth a chance.

5.) 29 Aug 2017 18:55:08
from what i have read it is straight cash for sanchez and were buying sterling we won't let them have sanchez unless we get sterling it seems.

6.) 29 Aug 2017 18:58:37
Suddenly everyone is chosening to believe everything negative they read and hear! I wonder why?
You wouldn't have believed these stories last week so why now?
Arsene needs replacing i agree but certainly not beating up on the way out.

7.) 29 Aug 2017 19:48:21
How are arsenal getting it all so wrong? Seriously it appears to be one balls up after another, I hope it picks up for you guys really, but the premier league is a shark tank and at the minute you guys look like a carcass just getting picked apart.

8.) 29 Aug 2017 19:50:51
Sorry 62 but Wenger deserves the pelters he's getting, he has single handedly ruined the best legacy any arsenal manager has or more than likely ever will have, he has taken us from being a let's be honest better than average club to a very good boarding on a great club then all the way to laughing stock, money or bums on seats can't be the excuse anymore.
He has lost the plot and that happened a while back, what's scary is he doesn't even realise he's lost it and so refuses to even look for a way to change things to get back to where we could and actually should be.
Sorry that's so negative but nothing has changed to make me believe in the way he manages the club anymore.



29 Aug 2017 16:07:56
Chamberlain leaving doesn't actually make much of a difference for us, bellerin takes his place and we can promote reiss nelson n walcott is still here, but we should keep mustafi though, he's more important for us, and is likely to get better this year since it's his second year.

1.) 29 Aug 2017 17:13:04
You mean bellerin will play where he is meant too and kola will play as he should be?

2.) 29 Aug 2017 17:19:36
I for one am going to miss the Ox's two goals a season, his ability to run really fast and find an opposing defender with 8 out of 10 of his crosses.

Oh that's on the proviso he hasn't actually run really fast into a full back.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 17:27:23
Yes Bellerin playing where he is supposed to. Wenger been playing Oxlade there to make him sign an extension, would've probably benched him if he had signed an extension.

4.) 29 Aug 2017 19:22:20
Lol Stoner,
I think he deserves his own treatment table named in his honour.



27 Aug 2017 16:13:18
Mustafi on bench, with monreal at center back, seems mustafi is off.

{Ed002's Note - He is playing for Oxlade-Chamberlain (who will join Liverpool at half time and play for them in the second half).}

1.) 27 Aug 2017 16:33:33
Hope he takes the rest with him too Ed, then we might have a chance in the second half:-)

2.) 27 Aug 2017 16:36:19
Haha Ed that genuinely made me laugh, although with the stupid ways clubs are now unveiling signings it probably won't be long before that actually happens!
