Hi eds I see Arsenal are linked with Miralem Pjanić and Juve are supposedly sniffing round Ramsey any chance of a swap on the cards. Ramsey is a square peg in a round hole.


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 04 Jan 2017 21:50:21
Lets change the question. Ed is there any interest at all in pjanic and if there is, is there a latest?

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal has not spoken with Juventus about Pjanic.}

2.) 04 Jan 2017 21:59:04
Thank u ed. I know its late but is there a list of names we can have for this January? It can be really brief if u can't be bothered.

{Ed002's Note - You will be getting a Sharkopod by the end of the week.}

Looking forward to it ed. been on the lookout! Just wondering what's on the podcast? Is it just transfer rumours?

{Ed002's Note - I do them jointly with my buddy #WonderDogSparky and they have a lot of the "now" hip-sounds of today - stuff you can do the Frug to on Saturday nights. The Chelsea one has just been completed and will soon be posted. Arsenal is next - a slim chance of it being completed later today - else in the morning.}

Hi eds

With Pod gone, Sanogo and Campbell to follow is Wenger freeing up space in the forward line for Cavanni. The rumours just won't go away.


{Ed002's Note - I think you are reading far too much in to the situation with fringe players. The situation in Paris is a real mess over various players at the moment and the situation with Cavani is unchanged to what I have previously said.}

1.) 07 Jan 2015 14:30:28
I don't think for one moment we are seriously after Cavani, who would be too expensive to purchase & pay.
Striker-wise, believe Sanogo will go on loan, possibly Campbell as well. That still leaves us with Giroud, Welback, Akpom, Walcott & Sanchez. Attacking midfielders such as Ox & Gnabry provide other options.

Hi Eds

Arsenal being linked with Virgil Van Diijk of Celtic any truth in this Celtic haven't qualified for the champions league and player himself wants to play at highest level. He would be a great signing seen him play a few times an absolute beast but can play a bit and a good passer so would suit arsenal down to the ground.


{Ed007's Note - As far as I know the story is nonsense.}



08 Aug 2013 11:57:06
Has Suarez's position become untenable at Liverpool if Arsenal don't get him and Real don't come in for him will he play again for Liverpool. Will their fans take him back or will he just rot training with the youths until January where there would be a few million knocked off his price {Ed029's Note - Suarez will be sold this summer. Another Ed has explained that there will likely be interest from other clubs as well.}


1.) I just don't get why we have left it so late again to strengthen the squad. It is great that we have shed a load of players, but we are woefuuly short of numbers, especially given the international games that need to be played during the season. As it stands we have no real quality back-up striker, centre half or goalkeeper and we are only too aware that our injury record is not great. I am sure that Wenger knows what he is doing but dithering could cost us dearly!

2.) He will be sold but no other suitors and this is a fact, no RM, its not going to happen. Its arsenal or bust

3.) I think it would be busy LFC will leave him in reverses to rot until nxt window either that or hoping to have him change his mind. I'm clutching at straws with this post.

4.) Mark my words we will miss out on Suarez and he will go to Madrid, Madrid realise they cannot get Bale and will end up with Suarez, Wenger will not pay the amounts Liverpool are asking, trust me.

5.) Lets be honest do any of us really expect this to happen, going on previous years it'll be a case of we tried but blah blah excuse blah blah

Im Very glad its starting to come in but does anyone get the feeling VAR is going to work against us in some sort of controversial way tonight.


1.) 10 Jan 2018 14:36:15
Well the idea of Var is to eliminate controversy so no in that respect. We could have for example penaltys that have been given against us that wasn't refused at our end. Not really getting that excited about it. Every team get the rub of the green evens out one way or another anyhow.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 14:37:36
Like, at 1-1 Hazard gets a second yellow for diving, = a red card, but upon review. A penalty is awarded, second yellow rescinded. Mustafi gets a red card for stopping a goal scoring opportunity, Hazard, recovers from his life threatening injury to score from the spot. Chelsea win 2-1.

3.) 10 Jan 2018 14:47:35
I don't think the VAR can overturn second yellows, only straight reds. Might be wrong though.

4.) 10 Jan 2018 16:59:17
It will only overturn total wrongs. Not iffy tight decisions.

5.) 10 Jan 2018 19:05:13
I've heard it will be used for 4 things.

1) Goals.
2) Penalties.
3) Red cards.
4) Mistaken Identity.

6.) 10 Jan 2018 19:40:21
you watch it say we gave a penalty away when ref didn't give it lol.



15 Nov 2017 22:25:09
Been watching Ireland through the qualifiers Shane Duffy has been excellent and for Brighton too. His head is like a magnet for the ball. Could he do a job for the gooners i think he would be a cracking signing.




04 Sep 2017 17:22:24
never thought id agree with this guy


1.) 04 Sep 2017 17:37:25
Explain it all to me please. My phone won't play the video for some reason.

2.) 04 Sep 2017 23:58:30
we won't challenge until he is gone.

3.) 05 Sep 2017 00:07:22
He said we have no chance in hell until we hit rock bottom, then we will be saying yes yes yes and that's the bottom line because stone cold said so. ;)



31 Aug 2015 14:56:53
Hi Eds

Quick question assuming we are after him can Cavanni be signed tomorrow or does he have to be signed by midnight tonight when the French window closes

Cheers lads

Hope ye have a busy couple of days


{Ed002's Note - Read the posts.}

1.) 31 Aug 2015 17:28:34
We can buy from them until our window closes, even if their window has closed



26 Aug 2015 12:58:09
Just a few thoughts on the Liverpool game, watching Giroud lumbering around the field he's not a good striker of the ball and is always a fraction late or over extending to stay in control of the ball. But even so it was a strange decision to substitute him for Walcott with Liverpool sitting so deep it wasn't a game for Walcott who I don't think is the answer to our striking options either. It doesn't seem that long ago we had Henry, Bergkamp, Kanu, and Wiltord to call upon in the striking department. Now its a toss up between Giroud or Walcott (and that's slightly depressing) you can mention Girouds goal scoring record but come on, up front for arsenal he should be scoring way more and the amount of chances he misses is not good enough at this level.


1.) 26 Aug 2015 14:07:40
Giroud is not good enough even adebyor scored 25 goals

2.) 26 Aug 2015 15:16:41
I totaaly agree. It's not the number of goals that counts, but the number of misses that worries me

3.) 26 Aug 2015 14:02:31
If only all our forwards are hungrier like sanchez, we will see the best of Ozil. Ox always makes impact when he comes on. He should be starting games this season. I think if Welbeck adds more aggression and betters his converting rate, he will be a top striker for us.

4.) 26 Aug 2015 20:08:35
That's it Rue Ollys miss rate is terrible and there's some very bad misses too, on the other hand his team play is fantastic. If he became prolific and kept his team contribution he'd have a brilliant season for us, then Real would take him off our hands :-(

5.) 26 Aug 2015 21:27:59
I'm with you Rue, misses far to many

6.) 26 Aug 2015 22:33:24
I just don't get it. He misses so many easy chances then scores a one touch goal he has no right to score lol

Something is seriously wrong at Arsenal. How can the club compete when clubs with better squads are spending huge sums of money on the best players and arsenal are buying in the bargain bin. It does not take 20 years playing the game or degrees in sport management to see the deficiencies at Arsenal. Sanchez Ozil and Laccazette are what is keeping arsenal somewhat competitive. Why would Sanchez stay the club repeatedly show no ambition. If the club had ambition Aubameyang should be signed as a replacement for Walcott. I think Wenger is now holding back the club. He has spent money poorly he bought Xhaka to be a DM but he is not a DM and leaves our defence hopelessly exposed and Mustaffi, brilliant one game shocking the next but he persists with them if such performances were put in at other clubs they would be sold at a loss and replaced by much better.

That's bad management by any standards. It did not take a rocket scientist to know France Germany and Chile would be playing late into the summer. To not sign badly needed players early so they could have a pre season and get to know the system is poor. The team selection was also puzzling should have started the ox and carzola yesterday and xhaka instead of elnenny to give extra cover to the to young cbs.

I don't know I thought Iván Zamorano had something about him and George Weah wouldn't rank to highly either on that scale.

We also need a goalkeeper shezza isn't good enough and for all his bravado he doesn't inspire would love to see some of the 100m spent on
Begovic, GK
coleman rb
Schar CB
Morgan Schneiderlin Dm
Morata st
Cavani st

sell to help fund





{Ed002's Note - Atletico Madrid and Arsenal have been looking at Marseille's Steve Mandanda. And apparently Arsenal and Newcastle have both enquired about Valbuena's availability and Marseille may be willing to sell in the summer.}
