Hi ed002

Can you give us an update on the Sanchez situation. Are we getting a good deal.


{Ed002's Note - I am not sure there is any update really - he will at some point leave. In terms of a good deal, it centres around who replaces him rather than the odd few million here of there and that is the issue. There is a split opinion with one party favouring Lemar or Lozano and another favouring Aubameyangadingdong. There are pros and cons for each. Lemar is likely to be expensive and Monaco do not wish to sell right now, but he has done well for quite some time and should adjust well. Lozano is having a very good season but there is no telling if he will adapt - so there is a risk. Aubameyangadingdong is older, expensive in terms of transfer fee and wages, and has very serious baggage he brings with him. So the most critical thing as I see it is who replaces Sanches, not Malcom coming in for Walcott or Mkhitaryan replacing Oezil.}

Thanks for the detailed reply.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 16 Jan 2018 10:11:58
Nice read there ed thank you.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 11:10:52
Presumably safe to discount any supposed Chelsea interest as Manchester City saving face/ betting companies trying to earn a bit of cash Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about, sorry.}

4.) 16 Jan 2018 11:32:09
Thank you anyway Ed002.

5.) 16 Jan 2018 11:34:35
ED02 as u said I have something complicated to understand. Do you mean malcom will replace Walcott or something else? Thanks will really appreciate your reply.

{Ed002's Note - What I wrote is clear - I don't understand the question.}

6.) 16 Jan 2018 11:47:38
Wajid, it reads as though Malcolm/ Walcott, Mkhitaryan/ Ozil, whoever/ Sanchez - so if we get Mkhitaryan as part of the Sanchez deal, it doesn't mean that he would be a direct replacement for Sanchez despite being part of the transfer.

I would say this makes some sense in terms of where we are with getting Ozil tied down, so that we can then decide whether to push the boat out in terms of what we offer Mkhitaryan.

7.) 16 Jan 2018 12:27:18
ED02 i want to ask is Arsenal looking to replace Walcott by signing malcom from Bordeaux? Thanks will really appreciate your reply.

{Ed002's Note - RTP.}

8.) 16 Jan 2018 13:02:22
Do you believe the malcom deal will get done? It’s gone a bit quiet on him.



09 Jan 2018 11:24:19
Hi ed002. Happy New Year

Although most like your recorded previews, I prefer you've written summarys.

My question is have we any serious targets in January, or is going to be the same old bollox as usual.


{Ed002's Note - The club would like to add players but timing is not something I can sensibly comment on. The major issue in January is that clubs do not plan to sell their better players and clubs know how difficult it is to replace them. Arsenal have dug themselves a hole over contracts and really should have let Oezil and, particularly, Sanchez leave last summer. Now they are stuck with getting a return on Sanchez without a suitable replacement. They know that the GK situation needs addressing but the players they were considering are dropping off as I have previously explained. At CB a bid has been rejected for Benatia so a decision needs to be taken. In midfield there are ideas but no commitment and then we have the wide and attacking midfield issue that won't go away - and maybe Oezil is delaying something happening. Again a striker needs sorting out. With the two management additions changes will come of course.}

1.) 09 Jan 2018 13:01:01
Forgive me please Ed, but to which management changes are you referring?

{Ed002's Note - Raul Sanllehi and Sven Mislintat.}

2.) 09 Jan 2018 13:45:04
Sanllehi to start in Feb. That's a good appointment! Although 'head of football relations' because Wenger hates the term 'Director of football' haha.
Lemar and Leon bailey would certainly show inent but 2 prolific signings in 1 transfer window, let alone it being January with a club that is falling to pieces is highly unlikely.
A lot of positives but the situation is only set to get worse before it gets better. In numbers we have a squad full of players that either don't want to be there, have contacts about to end, are too old and need to move on or just aren't good enough! Sanchez (gone) , Ozil (contract) , Giroud (fed up) , Wilshere (contract) , Walcott (not good enough) , Koscielny (aging, achilles) , Mustafi (not happy) , Monreal (aging) , Per M (retiring) , Elneny (not good enough) , Le Coq (not good enough) , Cech (aging) Chambers (not good enough) , Debuchy (not good enough) . Need i go on? We have no back up for key players (some of which aren't top quality anymore anyway) in my opinion. Long road to success yet at Arsenal FC!

3.) 09 Jan 2018 13:48:21
Ed02 I know we all like to moan on here, but from your previous comments it appears that you very much rate Raul and Sven, and that we should be very happy that both have chosen to join the club at a senior management level?

{Ed002's Note - Yes you should have a warm feeling about them Epping (if that is your real name). Just to be clear - this is a different warm feeling to that warm damp feeling Arsenal supports have on the inside of their legs.}

4.) 09 Jan 2018 14:48:41
Ha ha, yes Ed, i had that latter feeling when we went 2-1 down to Chelsea last week! But its nice to cling-on to some positive news for a change.



31 Aug 2017 11:53:31
Ed002, don't mean to be a pain, but have you any updates



{Ed002's Note - I am between meetings so have not really kept up.}

1.) 31 Aug 2017 14:48:19
Ok mate if you hear anything can you give us an update.

{Ed002's Note - Right now the issue is whether Sanchez stays or goes.}

2.) 31 Aug 2017 21:22:22
would we replace him?



29 Aug 2017 14:01:54
I am told there is no interest in Ozil from Dortmund.


1.) 29 Aug 2017 14:50:51
Ozil to sign for Dortmund than 😁.

2.) 29 Aug 2017 15:02:45
Great there's some hope then.



26 Aug 2017 11:46:10
Hi ed002

With only a few days left in this transfer window, have you any info on possible ins and out



{Ed002's Note - Aside from Mustafi probably leaving nothing has changed beyond what has already been said. Arsenal were unwuilling to pay the asking price for Lemar so that is probably off the table. Jean-Michael Seri was another player that Arsenal had the opportunity to move ahead with but they dropped the ball. Most others have been discused - Sanchez could still move and then Arsenal would look to a replacement.}

1.) 26 Aug 2017 14:07:04
Have any idea as to why mustafi is leaving?

{Ed002's Note - I think he likes the idea of moving to Milan and Inter like the look of him. Arsenal for the right price will facilitate this.}

2.) 26 Aug 2017 14:15:05
Hey ed, sorry if you've somewhat all ready answered this in an earlier post but it's clear to see Arsenal have Defensive issues seeing as we're yet to; including pre season start a defensive line with players in their actual positions. If the papers are true and we're open to selling Mustafi (a starter) , surely we're looking to buy a pricey, better CB as I'd have thought we'd keep Mustafi regardless of transfers. I can only think we want the money.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, I would expect a replacement - who may well end up costing more - and I have explained who Arsenal has shown an interest in.}

3.) 26 Aug 2017 17:44:03
Thanks for the reply ed. Let's hope something happens because as it stands, I can't see us making top four again.

{Ed002's Note - Ever?}

4.) 26 Aug 2017 18:15:36
With mertesacker retiring next season we need 2 defenders.

5.) 26 Aug 2017 18:48:28
If Mustafi leaves, along with Gibbs, Debuchy and probably Ox then we'll need 2 new defenders as it'll mean we're a bit short of numbers at the back. Hopefully we can tie up a deal for Manolas.

6.) 26 Aug 2017 22:40:06
It seems kinda funny that the people on this site all expect Wenger to sign some more players. He is done signing and is only selling. Even if Mustafi goes to Inter Wenger won't be buying a replacement. Arsenal has absolutely no ambition to win major trophies. It's all about making Kroenke loads of money. None of Kroenke's teams have ever won a championship under his ownership and never will. Gazidis promised the Arsenal fans big changes this year and so far it's the same bullshit as last year and the year before that and so on. Wenger has no clue at what he is doing and don't give me the bullshit that Wenger is a great coach and this and that. He was only good because of David Dein and all of his work that Wenger took most of the credit. Haven't you all noticed that Arsenal has been in a rut since the departure of David Dein. Doesn't that tell you something. Don't get me wrong, I truly love Arsenal and it hurts me so much year after year seeing the same results and mistakes. It's time the fans did something about this rinse and repeat management. It's the arrogance that pisses me off the most.

Iwobi should have his contract terminated, then I hope he rots in a non league team for the rest of his career.


1.) 10 Jan 2018 12:18:15
What for doing what 21 year olds do. For me it screams out the lack of disapline and carefree attitude at Arsenal.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 12:07:00
Why? Because 21 and partied on Friday night? If that’s the case then Wilshere should of left arsenal a long time ago but no because he’s “our saviour”.

3.) 10 Jan 2018 12:22:55
Have any of you had a drink the day b4 work, asking for his contract to be terminated pmsl,

4.) 10 Jan 2018 13:25:16
To be fair guys it's the lack of discipline of most young players not just one at arsenal. As for the post I do hope you're not being serious Malaga.

5.) 10 Jan 2018 13:58:56
Bit harsh methinks, however, when in a high profile job such as he is, drinking and partying the night before a match is totally unacceptable and he should be disciplined accordingly.
Probably won't be though as I don't think discipline is enforced as it should be at the club.

6.) 10 Jan 2018 14:57:16
It's no different in the real world Malaga, the raver is smashed every weekend and will miss every two Monday's in four due to being over the limit to drive and I never get sacked.

7.) 10 Jan 2018 14:59:11
I totally disagree gooner jim. I see ray parlour saying the other day when arsene saw him with a beer he said no drinking or you're fined 2 weeks wages. I don't think he's as soft as people think as I'm sure he has very strict club rules. Also it was 2 nights before the game. Not excusing it but apparently he was in the team hotel the night before.

8.) 10 Jan 2018 15:55:38
Doesn't your boss at McDonald's get a bit upset though?

9.) 10 Jan 2018 18:41:41
McDonalds lol I'm a scaffolder dags and the boss doesn't want the raver putting the boys lives in jeopardy and is glad I start on Tuesdays. The only people who miss me on Mondays are the mums who miss the ravers ripped torso.

10.) 10 Jan 2018 18:50:20
He should be punished. Contract termination is a bit drastic. I love how people compare a professional footballer partying a day before a massive game to your average 21 year old going for a drink. There is a lot more nuance to Iwobi situation. On top of that he is a struggling player in a struggling team and this is how he prepares. This sums up our club. The professionalism is a joke.



31 Dec 2017 10:02:05
Happy New year Reds and Ed's.


{Ed025's Note - you too malaga mate..

Malaga, festive greetings to you and your family mate.

2.) 23 Dec 2017 16:50:01
Yes merry xmas and happy New year all.

Good luck to the Republic of Ireland tonight

Come on you boys in green.


1.) 11 Nov 2017 11:37:00
Agree Malaga I'll be rooting for the republic and northern Ireland to qualify for the world cup, the top player for Denmark is the famous spurs number 23 keep him quite and Ireland will win. How poor was the England and Germany game last night, the only good point about that match was the Germany kit which looked like the classic world cup kit from Italia 90.

2.) 11 Nov 2017 13:42:44
Rooting raver? Have you turned in to a septic tank.

3.) 11 Nov 2017 19:56:44
Come on Raver the real threat is lord Bendtner 😉😂😂.

4.) 11 Nov 2017 20:42:26
Bendtner lol he would struggle to get a lap dance at Stringfellows.

5.) 15 Nov 2017 03:54:14
But raver he's going to the world cup, to set it alight one more time.



04 Nov 2017 09:12:22
I fancy us to get a result tomorrow.


1.) 04 Nov 2017 13:50:09
I have just genuinely dreamt we won 3-1 but this is reality and it is november. We have a decent record against citeh but we just look so porous at the moment. Its a massive game for all. Lose and it will set a tone, win and some people will start changing their thought process. I don't see us winning but we could sqeak a draw with a head wind and a huge slice of luck. If i'm pressed, i think we will get beat though.

2.) 04 Nov 2017 18:25:30
Malaga there's more chance of the raver being sober tonight than Arsenal winning tomorrow.

3.) 04 Nov 2017 18:57:04
I said a result you fool

Loosing 2 nil would be a result.

4.) 04 Nov 2017 19:35:54
2-2 me reckons.

5.) 04 Nov 2017 23:47:53
if ozil plays from the start we lose! he doesn't preform in these type of games games we need players to work both ends of the pitch.
