Ed02 are we in talks to sign kerem demirnay? Cheers.


{Ed002's Note - There is interest in Karim Demirbay from Arsenal who see him as a cheap option.}

1.) 04 Jan 2018 18:09:45
He looks a good player. That would be 3 left footed centre midfielders.

2.) 04 Jan 2018 20:09:00
Sorry ed who is he a cheaper option too thanks for the great Work.

{Ed002's Note - To all other midfield options.}

3.) 04 Jan 2018 20:23:23
Thanks Ed - would you remind us which names are still of interest?

{Ed002's Note - I will do a Sharkopod early next week.}

03 Jan 2018 11:40:33
Ed is it true that we are trying to sign a young Greek centre back? Sorry I can't spell his name. Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - At the behest of Mislintat, Konstantinos Mavropanos, yes. But not one for the first teamm I would think.

1.) 03 Jan 2018 15:30:06
It's good to see sven having an influence already.

2.) 03 Jan 2018 16:59:39
Yes good to see we are thinking for the future 😂😂.

3.) 03 Jan 2018 17:39:14
We still have to plan ahead mate regardless of the shizzle shower of now.

4.) 03 Jan 2018 21:40:03
He won’t playmore than 20 games for arsenal I’ll bet you that.

5.) 04 Jan 2018 05:39:07
You may well be right mate.



21 Dec 2017 10:10:57
Ed02 is there any chance we can have an update on our January transfer targets please? Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - I will do the Sharkopod as soon as time allows.}



04 Nov 2017 08:43:54
Ed02 are we interested in charly musonda and berkay ozcan? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Oz an without doubt. I am not aware of any approach for Musonda but something is going to happen with him.}

1.) 04 Nov 2017 13:27:30
Will arsenal look for a January deal for ozcan? Or is the summer more likely?

2.) 04 Nov 2017 13:27:30
Will arsenal look for a January deal for ozcan? Or is the summer more likely?

{Ed002's Note - They would like that if possible but it is down to Stuttgart agreeing and the player being persuaded it won’t simply bring his career to a halt. He would be better to wait.}

3.) 05 Nov 2017 09:32:52
Can we have a sharkpod when you have time ed?

{Ed002's Note - Sure - probably next week.}

4.) 05 Nov 2017 14:10:57
Cheers ed.



13 Oct 2017 16:40:09
Ed02 is there any early candidates to replace ozil and Sanchez? Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - Right now Arsenal remain hopeful that Oezil will stay. As for Sanchez, replacing him in January may be difficult. Arsenal will look again to Thomas Lemar but it is very unlikely he would be available before the Summer - which means Arsenal need to decide what to do if he were to leave in January - wait out the season with the players they have an hope they can attract Lemar in the summer, or look to options in January. Christian Pulisic of Dortmund remains of interest but is happy where he is right now and progressing well in Germany - a January transfer seems very unlikely. Arda Turan will be a ready to go solution but he is now 30 and that is very much against him moving to one of the more major English sides. This leaves what might be a risky and quite expensive option in PSV's Hirving Lozano who only moved this past summer. PSV havbe said that Arsenal have enquired and they have given them a price of four times what they paid for him in July. It makes little sense to me and could end up being another Lucas Perez. If I was asked my advice I would stick with what they have if Sanchez leaves in January and use Iwobi more, and I would try and negotiate a summer deal for Lemar now.}

1.) 16 Oct 2017 21:18:06
Hopefully ozil is sold in January he’s not lived up to expectations.

Merry Christmas everyone on this site. What does everyone think about jacks contract? I think we should give him one straight away. He shows so much fight on the pitch and he shows that he cares about the club as much as we do. I know his injury record is poor but if anyone's worth the risk it's jack.


1.) 24 Dec 2017 09:26:31
Merry Christmas mate. 👍🏼.



28 Aug 2017 13:55:32
Why are we all blaming arsene for yesterday? I didn't see him with boots on. He put 11 international players on the pitch and they were all a joke including Alexis. The players need to have a look in the mirror and start fighting for the shirt.


1.) 28 Aug 2017 14:11:10
Take the rose tinted glasses off

Wenger signed and trained them

He's not up too the job

Wenger out.

2.) 28 Aug 2017 14:21:45
54 spot on
but the wenger out boys are enjoying this.

3.) 28 Aug 2017 14:22:22
Do you want a full list or will just 2 or 3 reasons do?

4.) 28 Aug 2017 15:03:26
You really think a man who built a team that went a full season unbeaten doesn't know what he's doing? Listen again a full season unbeaten! The players need to take responsibility. these are top quality players who didn't perform.

5.) 28 Aug 2017 15:25:28
54 people don't stay at the top of thier game forever mate, in every industry people have a sell by date unless they surround themselves with good people who help then stay at the top. Alan Sugar Richard Branson don't run thier business alone or even do that much they continue to thrive because they delegate, Fergie did the same he always had good support and accepted their help.
Arsene hasn't allowed anyone to help him and time has caught up with him as it does all who don't adapt accordingly.

6.) 28 Aug 2017 15:35:52
we're blaming Arsene because it is the same thing season in and season out. He's been manager for over 20 years, yes the players didn't play well enough but these are all his players. He picks the team.
When we moved the Emirates we were told we would be competing with the likes of Madrid and Barcelona so we went along with it, paying higher prices than any other club in the world. These prices have only gone up.
In this time we have not won the league. 13 years and you have the cheek to ask why are people blaming Arsene. If you could name me another supposed big club that would keep a manager who fails time after time I'll eat my hat.
We came 5th last year for the first time in the Wenger era, and what does he do? get a pay rise of 2 million a year.
Of course the problems come from above Wenger but whilst he is at the helm we are only going to get worse.

7.) 28 Aug 2017 16:02:52
HgF I agree with all that but we fans must take our share of responsibility to, at Arsenal we have been precious about individuals for years, Jack for ages was untouchable and anyone who even suggested he might not be brilliant was shouted down Poldolski was a huge fan favourite why because he had a go at Spurs on twitter all the time and the fact he never ran for the ball was overlooked.
Obviously the biggest untouchable has been Arsene himself.
The Emirates was full against liecester despite coming 5th and Arsene getting a new contact but what if the board had refused Arsene a new contract against fans wishes? Would the Emirates have been full then visit liecester, the board have no wish to take on the fans and dragged thier heels on Arsene future as much as he did because they were gauging fans possible reaction to them.
They have no wish to sack Arsene unless fully supported by the vast majority of fans as they don't want a fan revolt over it.

8.) 28 Aug 2017 16:21:34
The players come and go and they are bought and conditioned by wenger, the only constant behind all these excuses is Wenger.

9.) 28 Aug 2017 16:29:36
He sat on his arse as he always does while his selection of players run around like a chicken with its head cut off. He might aswel be in your living room on the couch beside you for all the difference he makes. it doesn't even bother him enough to get him off his feet to ask more from his players.
There are a thousand reasons from his hypocrisy on what Arsenal FC should speculate on fees and wages (he earned £11.3M last year) to sending out the same lambs to the same slaughter house again yesterday, while Lacazette and the best LB in the Bundesliga, who have two goals and an assist to their two games each already, rot on the bench, that could be debated with you but ultimately it would be a waste of my time and energy.
54 and welsh gooner, i'd love to know what is it exactly you wish from your football club.

10.) 28 Aug 2017 18:23:26
But wenger picked the players out of position and has no clue how to get our team organised that is his fault.



29 Apr 2017 07:49:40
Ed025 who do you think we should buy this summer? It would be good to get the opinion of a supporter of a different club? And do you think arsene should stay? Thanks.


{Ed025's Note - i think you need a central defender and a midfield enforcer really badly ja, maybe koulibaly and a kante type in the middle, i love arsene but feel its time to leave myself mate for his own good..

1.) 29 Apr 2017 13:18:31
Lukaku. Just saying 😃.

{Ed025's Note - you cant afford him dags.. :)

2.) 29 Apr 2017 13:44:46
We do need a cb and a cm but we definitely need a cf too. No way we can compete with the top teams without a significant improvement up top. Giroud and Welbeck simply don't cut it.

3.) 29 Apr 2017 19:17:07
I know you can't argue with lukakus goal tally but there's something about him that I don't like. Hope he doesn't go back to chelsea.

4.) 29 Apr 2017 19:57:28
Striker-1st choice Andrea Bellotti
Midfielder- 1st choice Arda Turan/ 2nd Fabregas? /
Winger Mahrez/ 2nd James Rodriguez.

{Ed025's Note - fabregas wesley?..really?..

5.) 29 Apr 2017 21:23:43
Why not.

{Ed025's Note - does the word traitor mean nothing to you SLB?....only joking mate but he offers nothing different to what you already have, very tippy tappy and slow..

6.) 30 Apr 2017 10:10:42
We really missed santi this season and last year as well, Fabregas I felt would be perfect replacement.

7.) 30 Apr 2017 14:17:30
Could try for Idrissa Gueye as well.



31 Mar 2017 14:45:54
Ed 02 is there a reason why we have let 8 players run down there contract to one year? Is it because we don't want them? cheers.


{Ed002's Note - Some will be getting toward the end of their Arsenal career, some will have a new contract offered and some are already under discussion.}

1.) 01 Apr 2017 07:39:02
I belive it is down to poor negotiations by the club. They have given extended deals to the likes of Mertesacker and Cazorla, who are ageing and have been injured. Yet, they have allowed Ozil and Sanchez's deal to run down. Wenger should have been forced to make a decision earlier and although he has been loyal to Arsenal, it would not have been unfair of the cub t demand a decision. My gut feeling is that Wenger is off to PSG and we will be left in the difficult position of hastily bringing in a new manager and backroom staff, as well as signing new players in a relatively short period.

2.) 01 Apr 2017 09:17:53
I admire your tenacity RG :-) much like your love of rotation rotation rotation earlier in the season your consistency in mentioning Arsene to PSG in each and every post and reply is impressive to say the least :-)
You don't fancy a game as DM tomorrow do you mate? :-)

3.) 01 Apr 2017 09:54:33
RG there is no way Wenger will do that if he loves the club as much as he says.

4.) 01 Apr 2017 12:50:21
Gross negligence that's the only reason they let 8 contracts get down to final year. We have injured and geriatrics signing new contracts and star players running their contracts down and their value. Its a rediculous situation for a so called top club to be in.

5.) 01 Apr 2017 13:09:55
Yep Steve agree . Arrogance in the fact that we assume people will just re sign or total stupidity?

6.) 01 Apr 2017 17:13:06
Psg want him they play monaco later lose it the manager looks gone. Three year deal from psg they say all comes to a head tomorrow I believe at latest after the midweek game.

7.) 01 Apr 2017 18:26:19
I am sure we don't purposely let contracts run till the last year to renew
Pretty sure we are smarter than that plus lots of uncertainty around club which will create delays in contract renewals.



09 Mar 2017 10:32:07
Looking forward to the next arsenal sharkpod ed. Any idea when it will be? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - I have no timescales in mind but it is second on my list. Monday should be quiet so #WonderDogSparky and I may slip one out then.}

1.) 09 Mar 2017 17:48:51
What will you be discussing on this one related to Arsenal Ed? Just transfers or managerial situations and targets. Although I'm sure you've mentioned it plenty of times on here lol.

{Ed002's Note - Guy stuff. Monster truck racing and chicks.}
