Ed02 are we looking at under from roma for the rw position? Thanks.

ja54

{Ed002's Note - Yes, but only after deciding he is not tall enough as a goalkeeper.}


1.) 23 Nov 2018 13:08:31
He still might be a good shot stopper ed.

Ed02 are we interested in miguel almiron? Apparently the atalanta president says he's joining in January. Thanks.

ja54

{Ed002's Note - I am surprised that the Atlanta president has mentioned Arsenal. Miguel Almiron is likely heading to England if a Work Permit can be obtained but does not address Arsenal's issue of a RW and would likely struggle for game time if HM and MO stay - something that was made clear to Raul Sanllehi by one of the scouting staff. Newcastle remain very keen and have been showing an interest for some time. Sam Allardyce had him scouted when he was at Everton and Arsenal have enquired formally. Inter have watched the player on several occasions but accept the player is not keen on moving to Italy.}


1.) 05 Oct 2018 16:05:31
It turns out the quotes about arsenal are fake ed. He just said the player is moving to England in January.

{Ed002's Note - I am aware that he has said no to a move to Italy. If Oezil were to go it would make sense.}


2.) 05 Oct 2018 16:33:40
I hope ozil doesn't leave. Just out of interest ed what does the scout that you know think about smith rowe or nelson filling the rw role next season?

{Ed002's Note - I have never asked but would not see much of the kiddies.}


3.) 05 Oct 2018 17:03:02
Thanks for the replies ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


4.) 05 Oct 2018 22:47:06
Ed you said if HM were to leave. Is Mkhitaryan on the move?

Thanks!

{Ed002's Note - You will need to point me at where I said that.}


5.) 06 Oct 2018 16:02:51
I would think he's ramseys replacement if correct.

{Ed002's Note - He plays in a different position to Ramsey - in fact the same position as Oezil. Piotr Zielinski and Ever Benaga are seen by the club to be potential replacements if Ramsey were to leave.}


6.) 06 Oct 2018 16:54:48
Not sure what Ramseys position is in this team Ed02. Emery has tried him at no10 and ozil has been out wide. I think he likes it more fluid and prefers his players to press, wherever they play. I think Almiron works more like he wants his players to work.


7.) 06 Oct 2018 17:03:26
Ed02, can you see ozil leaving in January, i would have thought because of his wages, he would be hard to move on but i don't see him as an emery player. He isn't pulling up any trees so far.

{Ed002's Note - Possibly, there is interst.}


8.) 06 Oct 2018 17:15:05
Wow, thanks Ed.


9.) 06 Oct 2018 18:17:34
Sorry Ed, you had written if HM and MO stay, so I assumed.

Would be good to clear the books from some of these absurd wages.


10.) 07 Oct 2018 04:29:52
That’s would be great news if Ozil is set to leave.


11.) 07 Oct 2018 19:45:43
Benaga is quality, we could grab two or three decent years out of him if we are quick.


 

 

02 Oct 2018 19:09:41
Ed02 are you aware of us being interested in any new names now with our new scout? Thanks.

ja54

{Ed002's Note - João Felix (AM) Benfica will look to hold on to him and will give him a new contract but an Arsenal scout has had a look. Filipe Luis (LB) but Arsenal won't pay the €30M asking price. Adrien Rabiot (CM/AM) - Emery wants him but wages will be very high and interest from elsewhere will likely win out
Piotr Zielinski (CM) - seen as an Aaron Ramsey replacement but Aurelio De Laurentiis will provide a new contract to look to block any deal for the player
Adrien Rabiot (CM/AM) - Emery wants him but wages will be very high and interest from elsewhere will likely win out
Piotr Zielinski (CM) - seen as an Aaron Ramsey replacement but Aurelio De Laurentiis will provide a new contract to look to block any deal for the player
Nicolas Pepe (RW) - hilst it is a position that Arsenal are short in and they were looking at the likes of Martins and Pavon in the summer and got nowhere. Arsenal were represented at a game against Rennes in August where Pepe was one of the players watched - the other being Thiago Mendes who the scout had recommended to Arsenal before they opted for Lucas Torreira.
Christian Pavon (RW/F) - Arsenal may turn to an old Wenger target - there is interest from Barcelona, PSG and from another English side who have been told that when he moves it will be to Barcelona - probably one that will stay another year in South America - probably one to strike from the list.}


1.) 02 Oct 2018 22:35:46
It doesn't sound like we will get any of them ed.


 

 

05 Sep 2018 15:29:16
Ed02. There are a few rumours around that we are looking at Nicolas Pepe. Is he someone that we are interested in? Cheers.

ja54

{Ed002's Note - Sevilla see Nicolas Pepe as a replacement for Jesus Navas (who they gave a long contract to) and Real Betis see him as a replacement for Joaquín who is aging. However, both made approaches in the summer of 2018 and were shocked at the asking price and stepped back. Lyon has had an interest in Pepe since he was at Anger but have Bertrand Traoré and Maxwell Cornet who are vesatile and are playing well - so it is tough to see how he would fit in unless they were pressured in to losing one. Whilst it is a position that Arsenal are short in and they were looking at the likes of Martins and Pavon in the summer and got nowhere. So it is possible but I would need to ask - and will do.}


1.) 05 Sep 2018 16:30:46
Thanks ed. I think he would be an excellent signing. We really need a winger.


2.) 05 Sep 2018 17:10:26
Who is he I’ve never heard of him.


3.) 05 Sep 2018 20:01:52
He's a 23 year old Ivoryian winger that plays for lille.


4.) 14 Sep 2018 09:02:08
Did you get the chance to ask if our interest is genuine ed?

{Ed002's Note - I had forgotten but have now. Arsenal were represented at a game against Rennes in August where pepe was one of the players watched - the other being Thiago Mendes who the scout had recommended to Arsenal before they opted for Lucas Torreira. Lille are obviously aware that he has attended games and he plans on being at Lille again for the l'OM game at the end of the month, but there have been no specific discussions with Lille about the player. Anecdotally, his pick if he could have a young right winger would be Ferran Torres - but that won't happen.}


5.) 14 Sep 2018 11:54:15
Thank you ed.

{Ed002's Note - Apologies for letting it slip my mind - but I have been travelling this week and I am very old and forget stuff easily.}


 

 

11 Aug 2018 11:38:06
Ed02 do you know if arsenal tried to sign Hamza mendyl? Thanks.

ja54

{Ed002's Note - No I am not aware of any offer being made for Hamza Mendyl and there is no way at all he could move to England and get a Work Permit at this time.}

Any chance of a target list yet ed? Thanks.

ja54

{Ed002's Note - Not right now.}


1.) 10 Apr 2018 21:51:26
Remember you said we were close to signing manolas before he joined roma Ed? What a difference he could of made for us.


 

 

16 Mar 2018 18:32:54
Most of us agree we need at least 3 defensive players in the summer. So who would you like us to buy? I want leno, vestergaard and kondogbia.

ja54

1.) 16 Mar 2018 23:43:50
oblak, de vrij, Idrissa Gueye and maybe seamus coleman.


2.) 17 Mar 2018 03:07:32
I think that we need 4, possibly 5 depending on departures as Bellerin is rumoured to be for sale and Mustafi tried to leave last season. definitely need a Goalkeeper, RB, CB and CDM.

So in a semi-relaistic wishlist. i'm going to go for.

GK - Leno from Leverkusen
RB - Cedric Soares from Southampton
CB - Howedes from Schalke (was their captain I believe need a leader at the back, he's experienced in CL and International level, may be available as just spent season on loan at Juventus hardly played there. )
CDM - Nzonzi from Sevilla


Would also take Butland, Gimenez, Koulibaly, De Vrij, David Luiz, Fabinho and/ or Seri (Nice)


3.) 17 Mar 2018 07:08:14
GK - Butland
RB - Soares
CB - Varane
CB - Koulibaly
DM - Lamina
DM - Doucoure'
M - Modric and Lanzini
W - Malcolm

Sell/ release:
GK: Ospina
RB: Bellerin and Jenkinson
CB: Chambers and Mertesacker
DM: Elneny
M: Iwobi, Cazorla and Campbell
F: Perez and Akpom

Renew contracts of Welbeck, Wilshere and Ramsey

We need thiis type of major surgery to the squad, which is highly unlikely to happen.
I believe we will only buy 2 or 3 players if Wenger stays. These will be a midfield player, a wide attacking player or two.

We will sell Bellerin and replace him with Maitland-Niles in order to fund signings.

The base of the squad, if Wenger stays will be:
GK: Cech and Ospina. - Possibly Martinez will return, if Ospina departs.
FB: Maitland-Niles, Kolasinac and Monreal - May use Chambers as cover for Maitland-Niles.
CB: Mustafi, Holding, Koscielny, Chambers and Mavropanos.
DM: Elneny and Xhaka
M: Ozil, Mkhitaryan, Iwobi.
A: Aubameyang and Lacazette

Possibles depending upon contracts: Ramsey, Welbeck and Wilshere.


4.) 17 Mar 2018 10:06:49
On second thoughts I would prefer Fekir to Modric, as he is younger.


5.) 17 Mar 2018 10:27:59
Agreed but what would that do to wage bill and FFP regs?

Where’s the money coming from?


 

 

10 Mar 2018 17:33:59
Have you got time to do a list of targets yet Ed? Thanks.

ja54

{Ed002's Note - Not right now.}


 

 

10 Feb 2018 21:28:32
This is unacceptable now. Again today we were poor. It's happens against any half decent team. Xhaka was terrible at least usually he tries to tackle. Today he seemed scared. It was all really poor. We created nothing. Wenger needs to go and I've never said that before.

ja54

1.) 10 Feb 2018 22:47:44
You need to go.


2.) 10 Feb 2018 23:05:18
Good reply jack. Did you enjoy the game today?

I think we should move ozil back into the centre and buy a winger. Pepe would be my choice.

I know you told me about the interest. I was wondering if it was going to lead to a bid or not. Thanks for all your replies ed.

ja54

{Ed002's Note - That is not really a discussion we would have - or indeed I would have with anyone. We have never spoken and used any of the hip terms like "serious interest", or "on red alert", or the ubiquitous "preparing a bid". The real world simply isn't like that.}

What did he say about lafont Ed? Is he a serious target? Very promising player but also very young. Would he be number 2 to cech for a season? Thank you.

ja54

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal's interest in AL has been there for some years - I have explained that to you over and over.}
