Ed 02 are we interested in Bernard and maycon? Cheers.


{Ed002's Note - (a) No, and he is heading elsewhere. (b) Yes but there has been a negotiation with Shakhtar Donetsk already - but no conclusion.}

1.) 16 Mar 2018 13:03:06
God I’m such a moron. It has took me about 10 mins to work out your reply ed once you mentioned Shakhtar . I thought at first that Maycon was Maicon who used to play for Shakhtar and died then thought Maycon plays for Corinthians then worked out that shaktar have had negotiation with Corinthians not arsenal have negotiations with shaktar. I got there in the end lol.

{Ed002's Note - Sadly the site won't let me draw pictures to help the Arsenal fans understand.}

2.) 16 Mar 2018 18:02:08
Sano doesn't want pictures. He wants a buxom blonde to be sent round his gaff to hold his hand while she explains it. How difficult can that be to get done Ed?

3.) 16 Mar 2018 18:22:42
I was extreamly slow to work it out sharpie. I thought ed was reading info from before 2014. It’s a good job a took a moment to have a think about it before making a smart comment 🤪.



04 Jan 2018 17:54:36
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.}

4.) 04 Jan 2018 21:55:26



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.

Ed02 do you know if we are interested in ever benaga? Thanks.




10 Apr 2018 19:32:12
Any chance of a target list yet ed? Thanks.


{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.


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.


{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.


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?

Is there any chance you give us a list of summer targets Ed? I saw the one you did on the Madrid site and it was brilliant. Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - Please ask in a couple of weeks JA.}

Fekir would be a great signing but probably has a lot of options. Thanks for the reply ed.


{Ed002's Note - One of which is staying at Lyon. But there are a couple of other sides interested.}

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.


{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.


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

It should be up to the club but we know if arsene wants to stay then he will. I don't think we will sack him. I hope he walks at the end of the season so we can start to rebuild.

He might want to promote young players like Eddie, willock and nelson. We also have Jeff out on loan. They can fill some of the gaps. I guess we don't know until arsene decides what he's doing.
