From what i see on transfer pages not this one i hear the greek lad from Dortmund is a done deal but xant be announced until july the first as of financial year is this true does any one know.

1.) 12 Jun 2018 23:02:54
Seems to be the case.

2.) 12 Jun 2018 23:42:08
Er ok! Sounds weird to me but I'm not up with financial technicalities and the likes.



27 May 2018 18:55:21
Hi eds do you see many leaving arsenal this window and how many do you think we could bring in and thanks for all the hard work.

{Ed002's Note - The numbers will be about even if you remove the kids from the situation. Obviously those responsible have clear targets - as I have explained - they might be able to get what they want, they might turn to others and might have to make do.}

1.) 28 May 2018 09:38:09
Ok thanks ed for the reply hope you have a good summer and will you be watching the world cup.

{Ed002's Note - I don't have the time to watch too much football SB but I hope you enjoy what you see.}

2.) 28 May 2018 23:04:43
I will try thanks ed just hope England do better in this one.



09 May 2018 13:07:17
Hi eds was what I see true that we are in talks with Leno as we have bid 25mil.

{Ed001's Note - last I heard, which was before his talks with Napoli broke down, he was only interested in a job which would guarantee him the starting spot. Arsenal were not in the running because of that.}

1.) 09 May 2018 14:23:58
The number one goalkeeper spot u mean ed? Because I’m pretty sure he’s a lot better than Cech?

{Ed001's Note - I would agree, but will the new manager? Until that is resolved, how will he know that he is going to be chosen ahead of Cech?}

2.) 09 May 2018 14:29:57
Fair enough ed, do you yourself know how good Leno is?

{Ed001's Note - I have not seen a lot of him recently, but he looked excellent when I did see him.}

3.) 09 May 2018 16:09:17
Thanks Ed, maybe Liverpool should go for him.

{Ed002's Note - This is what I explained before to you: "Bayern may yet be interested and has resisted moves to Barcelona and Real Madrid in the past. Napoli also see him as first choice. If he can't be first choice with Champions League football then he would likely not consider a move. First pick for SM at Arsenal. Atletico see him as an option if Oblak leaves."

If Arsenal has spoken directly with the player then I would be stunned - German clubs will no longer accept any tapping up by English clubs making two complaints about one specific club two years ago. It is not they way to do business - you talk to his agent, Ferber, or his club.}

4.) 10 May 2018 22:08:25
Thanks for the reply ed and time to answer.



28 Jan 2018 17:56:13
eds do you see any players coming and going in the last week of the window.

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

1.) 28 Jan 2018 18:27:02
Its going to be a stressful last few days of the window that for sure.

{Ed002's Note - It won't be stressful.}

2.) 28 Jan 2018 18:29:04
will be being a gooner mate it always is.

3.) 28 Jan 2018 18:29:04
will be being a gooner mate it always is.

4.) 28 Jan 2018 20:42:14
Ed02 are we planning on making a bid for lemar before the end of the window? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I would doubt it.}

5.) 28 Jan 2018 21:55:56
Cheers Ed. I was just because there has been a few rumours about him moving before the window closes.

6.) 29 Jan 2018 08:09:51
thanks for the reply ed.



16 Jan 2018 15:02:08
looks like walcott is gone surely people must come in.

1.) 16 Jan 2018 15:17:20
Malclom would be his replacment I think.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 15:18:21
I believe we are actually trying to move walcott and giroud. Rumour also welbeck so we will see.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 18:24:11
Giroud plus cash for Aubameyang the rumour.

4.) 16 Jan 2018 21:30:40
Happy if Welbeck goes
Auba 4 Giroud
Malcom and UTd player to replace Theo and Sanchez
Actually play Lacazette for 90 mins


Then sort CDM and CD out _ even if short term plans ( Nzonzi and Evans ) knowing we have youth coming through.

21 Jun 2018 20:46:32
I would love a player like racitic at arsenal such a class player that modric ain't bad either is he lol plus Croatia rb for A Madrid is good.

1.) 21 Jun 2018 21:48:14
We will have his type of player again one day Stephen and we will be the best again one day too.

2.) 22 Jun 2018 15:01:09
I can only hope.



10 Jun 2018 12:48:17
Any idea when these players arsenal have meant to have signed being unannounced.

1.) 10 Jun 2018 14:06:15
Meant announced.



31 May 2018 19:14:06
Would love wenger to go Madrid and win the champs league.

{Ed0333's Note - I would absolutely rejoice in that scenario myself mate.

1.) 31 May 2018 20:06:44
Me too i would love to see Arsene win the champions ally league but equally i would hate to see him go there and get treated badly and sacked by new year.
The players wanted Ancelotti to stay the fans wanted Ancelotti to stay the club admitted Ancelotti had done a good job but they just fancied a change so sacked him.
Real are not great with managers.

2.) 31 May 2018 22:17:48
After three in a row Zidane knows it's the right time to depart. Ronaldo won't be a productive now imo.

3.) 31 May 2018 23:13:49
Not a chance. He won't go to madrid and he won't win the champs league. Way out of his compass. Where do people get these rediculous ideas?

4.) 31 May 2018 23:48:48
Why would it be he has a champs league winning team.

5.) 31 May 2018 23:50:24
Snd Steve i never said it would happen i said i would like to see it.

6.) 01 Jun 2018 06:49:54
I would have loved Wenger to win it against Barcelona many years ago with us! For what he’s done for us, I would also love it if he won it somewhere else but not at our cost. I couldn’t handle the irony if he beat us in a final 😂.

7.) 01 Jun 2018 08:24:07
Next season is ideal for him to win it then SY:-)
If he should get the job I worry for him simply because whoever gets the job is on a hiding to nothing.
Real came close a few times last season to going out of the competition and if next season they were knocked out in the last 16 or qf the manager will get a lot of stick Europe wide, I don't want that to be Arsene.

8.) 01 Jun 2018 17:49:50
I am being real, forgive the pun. Real only want top managers capable of winning leagues and winning the champs league, wenger is way past that capability. Why do people think he is up to it now, when he wasnt in his prime. Real will not be knocking on his door.

9.) 01 Jun 2018 18:13:16
Plus they want to win the league and they know wenger isn't that man.

10.) 01 Jun 2018 18:44:50
Steve anyone and everyone could fail at Real next season the bar is so high, for Arsene there would be zero acceptance of not winning the champions league from anyone anywhere to Real.
His detractors would delight in saying " he couldn't even win it with Real " but in truth are Real going to dominate the champions league forever? No of course not so someone somewhere has to be the fall guy and I personally hope it's not Arsene.
We are not in next year's champions league so should Arsene join a champions league team this summer I will be cheering him on wether it's psg Bayern Real or Celtic, the next best thing for me is if not us then Arsene for sure, it wasn't possible together but ideally I'd like to see both us and Arsene reach fantastic hights apart that we just couldn't reach together any longer, why not the man's done nothing wrong apart from not being capable at Arsenal any longer and that's no crime, it's just unfortunately true.

11.) 01 Jun 2018 23:18:33
Nice post 62 👍.



22 May 2018 19:42:01
If we do get emery I'd be one happy gunner I like this guys style of play and he gets the team to defend well.



14 May 2018 13:27:13
Thanks eds for all your hard work this season and I feel sorry for you this summer coming up.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, I have a feeling it will be a long one!}

1.) 14 May 2018 14:53:14
Yeah me to.

{Ed001's Note - actually it has been pretty long already...}

2.) 14 May 2018 15:06:57
Ed01 isn’t it constantly summer in Dubai. ☀️☀️☀️ I’m stopping over for a few days in September and it’s supposed to be up near the 40’s and that’s after the summer! 😅.

{Ed001's Note - it gets cold in the winter mate, sometimes drops as low as 14c in the early hours. September is still hot, very hot, the beginning is still summer really. Mind, after 4 years here now, if it gets below 30c I am reaching for a jacket!}

3.) 14 May 2018 15:55:37
L7cky for some ed.

{Ed001's Note - it has certainly done wonders for my health being out here.}

4.) 14 May 2018 16:07:06
And here’s me melting in a balmy 18 degrees. 😁.

{Ed001's Note - whereabouts are you going and how long for?}

5.) 14 May 2018 16:46:22
Just doing 3 days there ed from 15th Sept, staying at the Atlantis and will probably, well no probably, as the wife will insist, do the Dubai Mall along with the Burj up to the 125th or 148th.

Got any recommends?

{Ed001's Note - bloody hell you must have some money! I only really know the cheap bits mate, though I do admit I love Dubai Mall because I love the aquarium, could spend days watching the fish. Also love the shop for the aquarium, well not the shop, the shop window which is a big fish tank. The mall is huge though, you could easily spend 3 days just exploring it and the market across the opposite side of the bridge by the dancing fountain. By Burj I assume you mean Khalifa? There are a lot of Burjs as it means tower. I have to say the Burj Al Arab is a great place to visit too. The lobby is incredible.

It is well worth a trip to the Gold Soukh and La Mer or Al Seef are really nice. A trip down the canal is good and the night time dhow cruises are worth doing. If you are going to go to the gold soukh - get a abra across the creek from Al Seef, that is really nice (and cheaper than getting a taxi) and you will be able to wave to me as I live near the creek. Jumeirah Beach is nice mate, but as you are at Atlantis you have the beach there and the water park there is nice and relaxing, though a bit boring I think. I could write you a huge list of places to visit but it depends what you want, what kind of things you want to do.

The Marina is nice, as is the walk along JBR, particularly at night, with the Real Madrid café etc. Oh and if you want an experience you really can't get anywhere else, go to the ski centre in Mall of the Emirates and take the missus to meet the penguins. That is something else. It is literally the only place in the world that you can actually hug and kiss a penguin.

One thing I would say is, don't bother getting up and going out early, nothing really opens before 10am. It is an evening/night time place mostly.

If you need a guide let me know, my Egyptian mate Sayed is a tour guide here, so if you want to do things like the desert trips let me know and I will speak to him about getting you discount. He is a good lad, spent a fair bit of time in England so you will actually be able to understand him very easily!}

6.) 14 May 2018 17:49:30
Haha, I wish I had loads of money ed, I’m still trying to win the lottery, a single ticket won £21 million Saturday and sadly it wasn’t me.

I’m going to have to copy and paste your reply and start googling, the wife has just said she’d love to do the penguin bit. 🤪

With only 3 days it’s getting around to doing it all, though will no doubt go again and yes the huge tower as its supposed to be pretty impressive. A lift that does 125 floors in about a minute sounds like a Disney ride too.

Thanks for the offer re Sayad but I’m not sure we’ll get out to do a desert trip this time but if we do I’ll get in touch.

I’ll give you a shout when we’re out and if your in the Mall I’ll get you a coffee and cake or what ever they do. 😁.

{Ed001's Note - I can easily get to the Mall from mine mate, it is only 10-15 minutes away. If you want bars, every hotel has a bar and there are thousands of hotels. I just assumed you were minted staying in Atlantis as that is dead expensive. I am not a fan of the Khalifa as I am terrified of heights, went in the Burj Al Arab's bar right at the top, the one that sticks out and couldn't sit near the window as I was sick each time I looked out.

Oh avoid the Mall on a Friday - it is hellish in there on a Friday as that is the main day off, so everyone goes.}

7.) 14 May 2018 18:20:15
You must be minted ed as apparently afternoon tea for two in there Burj Al Arab is over £400! 😂

From what I’ve read that’s the only way you can get in that place. I’m not really a drinker ed hence the offer of coffee, bit sad I know, haha. I’ll give you a shout nearer the time if that’s good with you.

I went to a nice hotel in Pathos last year which was pretty expensive and was even more this year so wife suggested Mauritius and 3 days in Dubai and 10 in Mauritius was the same price for this year in Cyprus. Crazy.

{Ed001's Note - I went many years ago and the company paid for it as it was my then gf's birthday.

I don't drink either mate, I was just assuming you would. Coffee suits me fine. Feel free to give me a shout nearer the time.

Dubai used to be dead cheap back when I first came here, now it can be expensive if you don't know where to go. I live in the old part where it is cheaper, much cheaper, places like Satwa (otherwise known as Little Manila) are cheap, or Naif right by the Gold Soukh is cheap but not the area you want to take the missus!

If you avoid beachside hotels you can get a much cheaper stay here and they all do a free bus transfer to the malls and beaches anyway. I still use the free buses to get around sometimes, as you can jump on them in the mall and no one ever questions you!}

8.) 14 May 2018 19:49:17
Will do ed and won’t do Naïf, I think I’ll probably skip the afternoon tea too as £400 is mental.

{Ed001's Note - you are in Atlantis, I would suggest getting out of there for everything that is not included in the price you paid, only it is very expensive. You can spend a fortune in Dubai very easily on just eating out etc without noticing when you are a tourist. If you get out of the malls to eat, it is much cheaper.}
