Eds do you think that's it for players coming in.

{Ed002's Note - We’ll see.}


1.) 31 Jan 2019 21:32:52
We've got one so we've had many worse January windows, I know last year we got Pea but that was an exception to our usual low key January's.
There was Elneny and Kim Kalstrom before Pea but prior to that Ashavin is the only other one I can think of.
Would have liked some defensive additions but it's probably best we work on getting some kind of organised unit in place out of what we already have first so any new player who might join in the summer find it easier to settle in quickly.

I see Rowe Smith is going out on loan to get some first team under his belt.


1.) 30 Jan 2019 22:18:04
Great move for him and arsenal.


2.) 31 Jan 2019 08:03:44
Excellent, I'm a huge fan players going abroad on loan rather than the lower leagues in Britain or worse still playing under 23 football where they don't seem to learn or progress much at all.
It's got to be much more exciting for them learning different things rather than Just gouge through the motions day after day after day doing the same old stuff.


3.) 31 Jan 2019 09:02:36
Good little player and a great move for him. Keep him on his toes with some decent first team football and bring him back in for pre-season. If he copes well with it, him and Nelson could well be forcing their way in to the squad next season. I wouldn't be against Smith-Rowe having a full season abroad either though.


4.) 31 Jan 2019 09:56:45
Good to see young players getting first team experience in a top league.


 

 

27 Jan 2019 18:52:09
Eds do you still see anyone coming in as only 4 days left of the window.

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


1.) 27 Jan 2019 23:08:17
Thanks Ed hopefully be an upgrade on what we have do you know where there trying to improve on.


2.) 28 Jan 2019 19:18:46
We are unlikely to buy anything that is an upgrade on what we have. And if we are not willing to strengthen the defence with properly funded recruits, the future looks somewhat bleak. It certainly won't be rectified by half arsed loan+buy later deals for ageing players. Moreover, if Ramsey stays until the summer, we do not need midfielders as much as we require defenders. The back four is the existential crisis facing the club and they have yet to show interest in resolving it.


3.) 28 Jan 2019 21:16:19
It takes some understanding UC, well it's beyond me anyway.
Obviously that's not the most difficult trick to pull off :-)


4.) 29 Jan 2019 05:47:21
If we can only do loans, a RB should be top of the list, with bellerin out til next season.


5.) 29 Jan 2019 14:27:45
Here's hoping for some last minute transfer wizardry. Despite what I said above, a fresh face would give us all a bit of a boost.


6.) 29 Jan 2019 14:54:46
Hopefully we get 2 signings done.


 

 

24 Jan 2019 16:12:26
Eds do you see anyone coming into the club this window.

{Ed002's Note - Sure.}


1.) 25 Jan 2019 11:31:21
I don't.


2.) 25 Jan 2019 13:30:50
Maybe.


3.) 25 Jan 2019 05:33:10
Thanks Ed sounds good to hear.


 

 

22 Jan 2019 10:48:07
Now Kevin Prince boatang has gone to Barcelona will suarez be signing this week for us.


1.) 22 Jan 2019 21:54:46
The deal is now off, Suarez does not want to come to arsenal due to the on going haggling.


2.) 22 Jan 2019 22:57:48
Great so new guys dealing with transfers and still are bad at it.


3.) 22 Jan 2019 23:31:18
Don't panic boys tabloid talk as always:-)


4.) 23 Jan 2019 11:23:48
Suarez faces a rather a simple choice; keep (or don't keep) the bench warm at the camp nou, or join us. There are no reports of Suarez being fed up with arsenal, the issue at the heart of this deal relates to his status and value in the summer when only a year will remain on his contract - which is why Barcelona want Arsenal's commitment to sign him.


5.) 23 Jan 2019 15:49:24
Would Barcelona take Xhaka as a good will gesture:-) Just asking.

Eds if we get top 4 would that change the targets we want to buy in the summer or stay the same.

{Ed002's Note - It won’t change targets but will make some achievable. Monchi will certainly change targets.]


1.) 12 Mar 2019 01:18:25
So you don’t think the current people at Arsenal will be realistic enough to know that they can be abit more ambitious with their targets if Champions league is on offer then Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Clubs want players who will fit in and improve the team and the squad. They don't flip-flop to other targets if they qualify for the CL, it just makes some more attainable.}


2.) 13 Mar 2019 09:56:13
Thanks for the reply ed but I don’t mean that they’ll suddenly be interested in certain players, they’ll always have liked them but may have decided they aren’t realistically achievable due to certain factors - lack of CL being one.

You won’t see MK dons put in bids for Lionel Messi but i’m sure they are technically interested in him and are aware he would improve their team.


 

 

11 Mar 2019 08:54:40
What a great result I'm still buzzing let's hope we can do that Thursday and for the rest of the season.


 

 

01 Feb 2019 05:35:12
Thanks for all the hard work again eds.

{Ed001's Note - cheers sb! Happy with Arsenal's window?}


1.) 02 Feb 2019 09:10:55
Yeah wernt bad Ed to be fair I'm happy how emery is doing and hope the summer he sells and buys the players he needs I have liked emery for 5 years so he can't do much wrong atm in my eyes.

{Ed001's Note - I am shocked anyone has liked Emery for 5 years, he was not impressive in Spain at all.}


2.) 02 Feb 2019 21:12:08
Just me I surprise Ed thought he did wonders at seville my fav manager is klopp wish we had got him at the time who do you like Ed.

{Ed001's Note - it was not him who worked wonders at Sevilla, he just benefitted from the DoF and rest of the staff there imo and the opinion of most Sevilla supporters I spoke to in Spain. Most of them thought he held them back with his bizarre team selections and lack of defensive organisation. They say he does well in cups as he gets a lot of luck but leagues are a struggle as luck can't compete with much better managers and teams.}


 

 

26 Jan 2019 08:50:29
Gutted we lost last night two teams I can not stand losing to spurs and united l. The team did not run enough for me we need defenders and wingers we have no width and bad defenders. Hope Neilson playes next season for us.


 

 

20 Jan 2019 15:45:37
Hope we play like that every game then we will have no worries if we lose playing like that at least we would of played well.


1.) 20 Jan 2019 16:18:49
Totally agree Steven no complaints if we play like that and lose, well maybe about why Xhaka? ;-)
That's what we want to be a normal regular Arsenal performance and if that's top 4 brilliant if not what can we do about it, if your the best you can possibly be then no one can ask or be more.


2.) 20 Jan 2019 17:59:09
That is true that is all I want them to play that way all the time and if not in the top 4 at least we done our best I'd give niles a game in that position instead of xhaka. But I think we me see xhaka gone next season.


3.) 20 Jan 2019 18:46:03
45 points left to play for Stephen and I reckon we would need 34 points from those 45 to clinch top 4 but most importantly I'd like to see us not conceed more than 8 goals and where ever than leaves us I'd be happy because our problems have been defence defence defence for years and I think nothing much will change until we sort it out once and for all.
All our good periods have been built on a solid foundation of being very strong at the back.


4.) 21 Jan 2019 22:30:59
Yeah I'm hoping in the summer defenders come In and wi gers rest of the team seem fine maybe sell xhaka and replace him but I think ozil will be off.

Thanks Ed do you think that is it for players joining us.

{Ed002's Note - If something can be done about loaning a wide player sure - but these are not the derired solutions and will just be sucking money out of the pot.}

Is this psg guy any good Ed I. Your opinion. I have never seen him play.

{Ed002's Note - He is a regular but no fixed position hence he feels like he is being used as cover - but well thought of.}

If arsenal can defend like we did against spurs then it is an improvement when he gets the team he wants then I will judge emery I like him have for a long time and we are better on pints than last year so it is an improvement too 4 will be hard to get but would be amazing to be back in champs league.

I don't think any manager could improve the defence we have atm guys emery is trying his best with what he has after nmthe summer window with his players brought in if we're still bad then maybe you could say he isn't good but after 6 months for me is a it harsh.
