Ed001 I am reading live chat and jelfy said I am banned for racially abusing some one
I want you to tell me why I am banned, I have never racially abused any one



{Ed025's Note - ED001 is not around malaga and im not privvy to why your banned, but jelfy said that you racially abused him 4/5 times..

1.) 03 May 2018 20:33:51
Ed, if I was racially abusing anyone why am I allowed to post on the main site.

I find it totally out of order that jelfy is allowed to post total lies.

Talk about a kangaroo court.

{Ed025's Note - i will see if any of the other eds know anything..

2.) 03 May 2018 21:00:03
Malaga you are very offensive on the live chat.

{Ed033's Note - I think Gunnerbod has a point. Calling a certain poster a retard when they post on the live chat is offensive.

3.) 03 May 2018 22:00:08
Ok I hold my hands up ed that was wrong but have i been racist?

{Ed025's Note - just had clarification from another were banned for calling someone a retard on numerous occasions.

4.) 03 May 2018 22:37:08
So no racism ed as I said.

{Ed025's Note - apparently not malaga but im still trying to crack the case mate..

5.) 03 May 2018 22:52:32
Some fans just don't know where to aim there abuse since arsene announced he is stepping down😂. Shouldn't be tolerated by any of us tho.

6.) 03 May 2018 23:10:33
Think he’s learned his lesson now Ed - can we use a sin bin approach and let M back for the last home game?

{Ed001's Note - if it was up to me no, and Jelfy would be banned for life from the sites, so I am probably the wrong person to ask! But then I hate the live chats and would happily get rid of them altogether as they just seem to create abuse when people do not have to think about what they say.}

7.) 04 May 2018 09:10:02
I think that's the problem with live chat people use it to abuse the lack of censorship so it can degenerate into a personal insult forum and simply drives away those who want to talk football, which after all is what the Eds introduced it for in the first place.
People need to respect the fact that one of the Eds or maybe a few of the Eds must have put in a lot of effort (unpaid effort) make live chat possible for everyone to enjoy not for some people swap personal insults between themselves.
I went on live chat last Sunday for the first time this season and it was really good to read the good humoured friendly football chat had returned rather than the insult fest it was the last time I went on there.

It's not for me to say who should or who shouldn't be allowed to us live chat that is for the Eds to decide but maybe if Malaga and anyone else who is banned are given another chance it's up to everyone who uses live chat to regulate not only ourselves but each other and when things are getting disrespectful and personal towards posters to give those involed a reminder they are going to far and if they don't listen then they deserve to be banned.

8.) 04 May 2018 17:28:02
Good post gunner, agree with that.

9.) 04 May 2018 18:19:36
7 and half years i've been coming on here ed, mainly to protest against wenger. My work is all but done.

Cheers Everton ed, your one of the good ones we've had on here over the years.



03 May 2018 10:44:24
Ed002. Good morning

I know you said you were staying away from the information mill at the moment but I have a couple of questions.

1- was wenger pushed

2- how long ago was this decision made



{Ed002's Note - As a special treat, M Wenger was told that the club needed a decision from him well before the end of the season - and that is what his interview referred to. He was forced to give a decision just before (probably two or three days) the time I explained that was what was happening on here. So you need to go back and read the posts and figure it out.}

1.) 03 May 2018 11:25:34
Ed can u give us one more treat and say the names arsenal are looking to interview? Come on one more treat wouldn’t hurt! 😂😂😂.

{Ed002's Note - I only do occasional treats DG. And I have already given you plenty to think about with options.}

2.) 03 May 2018 12:17:37
Thanks Ed though, your information is priceless. literally!



20 Apr 2018 10:15:57
Ed002, with the news wenger is stepping down, have we a new manager lined up.


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 20 Apr 2018 12:09:51
Probably gives the board time now to consider who they want.

2.) 20 Apr 2018 15:49:41
My thought is that Luis Enrique must be of serious consideration? Although I hear Chelsea are after him also.

3.) 20 Apr 2018 21:29:10
sunny mate, luis enrique is a terrible manager. Good man manager but tactically lacking, the oppossite of what arsenal need.



29 Mar 2018 15:30:35
Ed002,how's it going

I don't know their names, but the 2 new lads that the club has employed to do transfers. Do you know if their working on anything concrete for summer transfers.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer “concrete” as it makes zero sense. I am not sure you understand what their jobs are but there will be options for the summer but right now there remains the issue of the coach.}

1.) 30 Mar 2018 03:24:48
Well let’s hope the coach situation gets sorted soon. Like last summer, there’s some transfers to be had and early deals will be the better ones. Do you know if arsenal are seriously interested in Isco? I’d assume he’s out of our price bracket.

{Ed002's Note - Don’t ask about random players because you will be disappointed every time.}

2.) 31 Mar 2018 05:40:54
The end of the season is difficult, until we know the outcome of the EL. If Wenger wins it and qualifies for the CL, it will be virtually impossible to see him going, unless he decides to go out on a high, which is unlikely.
If he fails to qualify, the board may act and bring in a replacement swiftly, as 6 or so players will need to be brought in, with the possible departures of Wilshere, Ramsey and Welbeck.

3.) 03 Apr 2018 11:43:45
Isco is a random player.? Seems legit to me.



24 Mar 2018 10:50:52
Hi Ed002

Do you have any updates on the wenger situation? Do you still think he will leave at the end of the season?


{Ed002's Note - There is no update but it remains the time to go. I spoke with someone close to the situation two or three weeks ago and is agrees it is time to draw a line across but again it remains in Wenger's hands.}

1.) 24 Mar 2018 12:17:47
Ok thanks.

Just quickly, have the club approached anyone with a view of taking over.

{Ed002's Note - As I explained last year they made approaches but recently there was an informal discussion with one of the options and they know the other option they had in mind is unlikely, so they will have to get an answer out of Wenger - explaining that it will harm the club if he doesn't make an early decission, come up with another option or two and then see where they stand. They cannot directly approach anyone who is contracted so it would need to be a discussion with their agent. Hence it is Wenger's hands.}

2.) 25 Mar 2018 14:15:46
Thanks for the update Ed.

Friday I was watching the classic from 2003/ 2004 against Spurs at White Hart Lane. With my pal a spurs fan. It was great.
The game has changed so much since then. Speed and positioning. Maybe I’m overly proud or biased to say it started with our invincibles.
But the thing that’s struck me most is that, for all the changes, Wenger is still here. And though I’m grateful for what he has done, I don’t think anyone who is truly capable of finding success by winning the league over twenty years. Too much has changed.

3-2 to the arsenal tonight

Ramsey a brace and lacazette.


1.) 03 May 2018 17:24:14
4 3 for me, Ramsey Lacasette and 1 each for the Brace brothers ;-)

2.) 03 May 2018 17:42:08
1-1 and extra time, followed by a win on penalties please!

3.) 03 May 2018 18:07:50
2-1 to Arsenal, Costa to score first with Lacazette and Ramsey scoring after half time.

4.) 03 May 2018 19:19:27
Got a sneaky feeling it will be 2-2.

Happy days.

5.) 03 May 2018 19:47:08
2-1 to us.



01 May 2018 16:41:45
Ed002, any news on what's happening with Steve Bould.


{Ed002's Note - I am not really providing any such information right now.}

1.) 01 May 2018 16:51:34
Oh that's a shame



01 May 2018 16:08:49
I was talking to a mate who's a Dortmund fan. He says Buvac nickname at Dortmund was the 'BRIAN' and he's a fantastic coach.


1.) 01 May 2018 16:39:42
Sorry the BRIAN.

2.) 01 May 2018 16:52:48
FFS brain!!!!

3.) 01 May 2018 17:01:32
At the moment mate its just all of us joining the dots to paint a possible picture. There doesn't seem anything concrete coming from anyone reliable.
Even the usual suspects from the media don't seem to be claiming to know anything at this stage but are all merely speculating like us all.

4.) 01 May 2018 17:01:38
So what you’re saying is, he was called Brian Buvac. Thanks for that mate. 😉😂.

5.) 01 May 2018 17:17:45
Only you would pull me on that stoner.

6.) 01 May 2018 17:24:18
No surely it's Brian Bavuc :-)

7.) 01 May 2018 18:21:40
So we are getting rid of the professor and gettingcthe brain. Sounds like eggheads.

8.) 01 May 2018 18:46:31
Le prof for Ze Brian you mean Steve.
Still no mention of ye olde plain thinking Sean Dyche then :-)

9.) 01 May 2018 19:11:26
Too plain and too english gunner, he stands more chance of becoming the next james bond.

10.) 01 May 2018 19:17:49
The names Dyche, Sean Dyche :-)

{Ed001's Note - he would make a great Bond! That gravelly voice would frighten the evil spies to death.}

11.) 01 May 2018 20:42:17
Ha ha i like it gunner. Oh oh 7th.

12.) 01 May 2018 20:48:38
He would wouldn't he Ed mate :-)
I see they've just named a pub after him in Burnley ( The Royal Dyche )
I wonder if it's too late to suggest The Casino Royal Dyche,

{Ed001's Note - I liked his suggestion - The Handsome Ginger Chap.}

13.) 01 May 2018 21:56:31
Yes mate, he actually seems like a top bloke both on and away from the sidelines.



26 Apr 2018 21:32:01
Hi ed, any chance you can lift my ban on the live chat.


{Ed033's Note - We have a contact form for questions like this. Link is at the bottom of this page.



25 Apr 2018 14:56:08
Who ever we get as manager we have to get behind him 100%. There are going to be ups and downs, but we must stick together.


1.) 25 Apr 2018 15:20:08
Likd we was behind arsene yeah 😂. But seriously yeah I hope everyone gets behind the new guy and gives him the time needed.

2.) 25 Apr 2018 16:11:50
We've got to give him a full 45 minutes in the opening game, it's not good calling for his head after 3 or 4 minutes.
Obviously if after the full 90 minutes there's no improvement we'd need to have a rethink about him, we don't want to drag things out like we did with Arsene do we?

3.) 25 Apr 2018 16:40:04
Its about confidence in the appointment, if the appointment is someone who looks a risk, he will get less time, if it is an appointment that looks exciting, he will get more leeway. that's just life.

4.) 25 Apr 2018 17:05:45

5.) 25 Apr 2018 17:28:10
Obviously there isn't a stand out option who is available like Pep or Jurgen that would automatically have 95% of fans dancing in the street if they signed and could get away with finishing outside the top 4 in thier first season no problem.
Poor old Brendan would need to win a premier league and champions league double in his first season to have any chance of getting a second season and it would be no good him coming out with the lame excuse that we hadn't actually qualified for that seasons champions league before he arrived, that would be seen as a very poor reason by most fans in for his failure to win it for us. :-)

6.) 25 Apr 2018 17:36:25
Gunner, again not my first choice but don't you potentially see enrique as potentially exciting as pep or klopp. He could easily be as good as them.

{Ed001's Note - what makes you think that ste? I was in Spain for 6 months of his time at Barca and the way it looked to me was that they were winning in spite of him, rather than because of him. He was also terrible with the media, made the most bizarre comments and generally came across as completely out of his tree. He would seriously worry me as an option personally. His tactical knowhow was not the best at all, to be polite. You only have to look at the current guy to see that you can be useless tactically and still win there when you have Messi in the team, so it is not like he has shown anything to be considered exciting imo. Certainly nothing he did before Barca was in the slightest bit impressive.}

7.) 25 Apr 2018 18:45:12
Having read what Ed001 has said Steve it does raise questions about Enrique.
Maybe we need to look at where we are as a club at the moment as to who is most suitable from what they've achieved previously and where they achieved and the circumstances they had to deal with.
Pep has done it with Barcelona Bayern City who were all already giants when he took over, I'm taking nothing away from Pep he's brilliant at what he does but we are 6th best in our league without a great squad awaiting the new manager or mega money to make it great instantly or easily, so would Pep be a good fit after all?

Someone who has done a similar job to the one we want them to do under similar circumstances is prehaps where we should be looking?

{Ed001's Note - to be fair though, I think you could be fairly confident that just about any manager would finish in the top half with the team you have. The bottom half of the Prem is poor at the moment and there will be little time for signings with the absurdly short new transfer window.}

8.) 25 Apr 2018 19:08:22
Arsenal especially will have to do some quick and tidy work with the World Cup as well. It would be inconceivable if a manager was brought In and no new players came in.

9.) 25 Apr 2018 19:17:50
Ed 01 his ability for people to judge is about opinion, his trophies, even at Barcelona are not to be sniffed at. Yes he had a good team ready made but he did encounter all sorts of problems in the team and fans and in the end nobody including fans and players wanted him to leave. 9 trophies in 3 years even at Barcelona is impressive to say the least. Even great teams need a little help to win major trophies. People were saying similar things about Pep ( oh anyone can do it at Barcelona ) he is proving his methods work away from barca. Enrique is defin5not a lucky coach and if he is, i would take a chance that he will bring his luck to arsenal and like pep, prove his champions league, world team cup and leagues were actually because he knows how to win football matches. He is highly regarded by top top football people, so i would be honoured for him to be at our club to give him a chance. Arteta or Enrique, Rogers or Enrique, Tuchel or Enrique, i think i would have him before many.

{Ed001's Note - ste he was pushed out of the door and the fans hated him and the football they played. Pep has still not proved anything, he has won the same as Mancini and Pellegrini managed at City. He took over the best team in Europe under Heynckes, spent huge sums and made the merely the best in Germany. So not sure why you brought Pep into it. If Enrique is so highly rated, why have PSG not shown the slightest bit of interest in offering him a role?}

10.) 25 Apr 2018 19:52:54
I'm pretty sure I could make us top 10 Ed :-)
Absolutely new players will come in Sanogo mate but equally I doubt very much any of the 5 teams above us will simply stand still.
George and Arsene both leap fogged other teams to make us champions without needing to out spend all other to achieve it.
We are looking for someone who can work within a decent but limited budget and who has taken a team in need of rebuilding back to former glory in a very competitive League.
He's out there somewhere :-)

11.) 25 Apr 2018 19:56:05
So if PSG became interested in Enrique would that make him a better option.

{Ed001's Note - when did anyone say that? The point is if he is so highly rated as ste said, why did PSG have no interest in him? Irrelevant whether it would make him a better option or not as that was not the question. You are twisting things to suit an agenda.}

12.) 25 Apr 2018 20:25:22
Ed the previous manager before Enrique had won nothing and they were for Barcelona struggling, he came in and turned that around. The final season he was there, they were floundering on and off the pitch, mumblings he was tactically innept by people. He finished the season with the treble. His trophy haul was in his time frame better than peps, i dint think we as arsenal fans can expect any more than a man who has actually conquered europes top comp against the other elite teams. It would be a different challenge at arsenal for sure but he is a devorated coach and he is current.

{Ed001's Note - I think we will just have to agree to disagree.}

13.) 25 Apr 2018 20:42:56
Best I can say is that Enrique Arsenal doesn’t ring true! . There’s ithers I’d prefer,

14.) 25 Apr 2018 20:45:20
Opinions Ed01. I don't want arteta but that doesn't mean to say he would fail. The same as Enrique, he could bomb just as easily. Enrique as i said is not my first choice but we can't escape the fact he is a winner of the biggest prizes. The Barcelona job from the outside looks easy but in reality, it is also a poison challis. He didn't fail there.

{Ed001's Note - like I said we will have to agree to disagree because he was up against the worst Real Madrid side in living memory and Atleti were having issues with Simeone. He did not have to be any good to win anything, just had to not rock the boat and let Messi, Suarez and Neymar do their thing.}

15.) 25 Apr 2018 21:18:23
For next season, i don't think Enrique will be arsenals manager/ coach. I think if he is, it will be down to selnheri or whatever his name is. He will have a big say in wether he thinks he's the one or not.

{Ed002's Note - Raul Sanllehi will lead the interview process and don't doubt the input of Sven Mislintat.}

16.) 25 Apr 2018 21:50:06
Ed02, i presume we are appointing a head coach now not a manager.

{Ed002's Note - I would not get involved in the semantics Steve.}

17.) 25 Apr 2018 22:00:37
Ed02 ha ha i had to look that one up. He will have a totally different role to Wenger though.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal has recruited a Director of Football and a Chief Scout to help matters along.}

18.) 26 Apr 2018 01:21:08
Question for you both Ed001 and Ed002: If it were up to you either of you personally, which managers/ coaches/ wizards/ whatever would you be looking at as the best options for us? While I love the game I must admit that I don't watch many other teams play and probably don't know anywhere near enough to say whether another manager is any good or dreadful.

Also Ed001, in contradiction to what I just said, I've been finding myself watching liverpool matches of late and must admit that I'm a little envious of the football your boys are playing of late. Reminds me of the days when we had a quality, fast, fluid attack. Are you happy with Klopp? At least to the ignorant he seems to be doing a pretty decent job, can we perhaps borrow him for a little while? :)

{Ed001's Note - first off, very happy with Klopp, he was who I wanted and he has been better than I expected.

When you are following Wenger it needs to be someone strong, who will ignore what went before and do his own thing and so remove the shadow hanging over the club. There are very few around to be honest. I would go for Nagelsmann but I know the club are not looking at him.}
