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.

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.



15 Jan 2018 10:42:45
i read Malcolm is not leaving his club now they wint sell him in jan is this true.

1.) 15 Jan 2018 13:38:25
wont sell.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 13:05:36
The club president has said there has been no talks, it's all wind and that arsenal will have a tough task taking Malcom from them.



10 Jan 2018 19:37:17
i read if wenger leaves in the summer we want ancelotti.

1.) 10 Jan 2018 20:35:37
Not another old codger.

2.) 11 Jan 2018 01:22:02
I don't know whether Carlo is the right choice. He is still a good manager, and used to winning, but I think his last two jobs (RM and Bayern) have aged him. He has lost that spark and we need someone with more life in them I think. My pick would be Jardim, but Tuchel, or Sampaoli after the WC, would be great too. I can't think of any current or former prem league managers who suit the job.

3.) 11 Jan 2018 12:01:28
Sean Dyche?

4.) 11 Jan 2018 12:25:13
Leonardo Jardim could be the perfect successor.

5.) 11 Jan 2018 14:24:52
How about Giovanni Van Bronkhorst. Ticks the ex-player box. and currently very successful, although dutch managers not exactly had a good recent run in the premiership!

6.) 11 Jan 2018 14:27:58
There was a rumour that the reason why Dortmund let Tuchel go was he had a massive falling out with Dortmunds then head scout, who he banned from the ground. Dortmund thought so highly of the scout they let Tuchel go instead. Not sure if true, but if yes, seeing as that scout is now our head scout, you can rule Tuchel out as a future Arsenal manager!

7.) 11 Jan 2018 14:37:14
Don't start Steven U. The page is still shaking after the last civil war you started on here 😂.

8.) 11 Jan 2018 15:12:57
haha i said it very quietly.

9.) 11 Jan 2018 16:50:04
Ancelotti would be a good short term solution. He has the experience to steady a very rocky ship over the next year or so before a younger, more long term solution is appointed.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal won't be looking for a coach for a year.}

10.) 11 Jan 2018 17:13:24
Exactly ed002. Surely these rumours of arsene leaving a year early are nonsense.

{Ed002's Note - He seems to be working on being sent to the stands for the whole of next season. One wonders if he will decide time has come. With the senior management changes at the club it may be a suitable time.}

11.) 11 Jan 2018 20:00:21
Ed 002, when you say that they won't be looking for a coach for another year, do you mean that they haven't got an idea on a successor whatsoever?

It seems strange that Wenger has a year left and they might not have even started looking for successors yet, but that is the Arsenal way I suppose!

{Ed002's Note - That isn't what I said - you need to read the comment and the response.}

12.) 11 Jan 2018 20:19:21
I read it wrong the first time too. Unless I'm mistaken (never unlikely) , Ed wasn't saying that they're going to wait a year before searching for a new coach, he was stating that the coach they're looking for will be expected to stay for more than just a year (of course) .

13.) 11 Jan 2018 23:16:26
Mike Dean should be our next manager as he is very impactful.

14.) 12 Jan 2018 11:50:47
I thought Mikel Arteta was being lined up to replace him?

15.) 13 Jan 2018 14:23:13
Yes i think arteta would be a good replacement for mike dean.



30 Jul 2017 17:59:31
I would be happy if arsenal signed nzonzi.

1.) 30 Jul 2017 20:00:22
Yh he looked quality would be an upgrade to our defensive midfield.

2.) 30 Jul 2017 20:38:37
We all ready have a mid table midfield.

3.) 31 Jul 2017 06:54:18
Hahahaha, brilliant Steve.

4.) 31 Jul 2017 13:11:48
Your opinion Steve i think he would be an upgrade.

5.) 31 Jul 2017 15:03:44
I'm with you on that one steve don't rate him.

6.) 01 Aug 2017 14:28:27
He is a very good player for Seville, plays in a position which obviously suits him, and was quite instrumental in their strong run last year. However, he didn't quite make it previously in the premiership, and is pushing on a bit age wise, so i don't think he would ever be an option anyway. However, i do like his physique and would prefer we sign a DM of similar build.

7.) 03 Aug 2017 01:45:05
I must admit, being a friendly he did commit plenty, was available for passes and scored albeit a badly defended goal, one perhaps WE might not have conceded had we someone who was competent in the DMF position.
A very underrated player who wouldn't cost a huge amount, has bags of experience in his position and in the country, he's played for stoke and Blackburn nearly 200 times.
Let's be honest.
United just laid out the guts of £40m for a guy who mourinho rates and who basically tackles and passes, which is pretty much what N'Zonzi does, but for half the price.
Can anyone recommend someone as experienced and as cost effective as him.
And I really dislike him to be honest he really is an anti footballer. The reason Wenger won't buy him. his ball skills are utter dump, my 5 year old might be better. But compare him to the likes of William Carvhalho, who would cost the same, maybe more, but let's be honest if Carvalho was world class wouldn't be even at Arsenal. he be at Madrid or Manchester dare I say it.
N'Zonzi for the right money. would be a good buy.

{Ed001's Note - you are being unfairly harsh on N'Zonzi, he just looks awkward, like Peter Crouch, rather than actually being poor. His control is a little loose, but he has long legs that just reach out and whip it away from a defender when they commit themselves to a challenge. Being gangly just makes him look like he is about to lose the ball, or trip over his own feet, but that moment never comes.}

Tough trip to Russia but hopefully we can get through it.

1.) 16 Mar 2018 14:24:59
We didn't want Madrid and Russia is a bit of a long haul for us! Where did we want? Two weeks in Bognor Regis followed by a Danny friendly Ref in the return leg at the Emirates :-)
Only kidding Stephen mate, it will be tough over there but there is very few easy ties in European quater finals but equally apart from Athletico no teams that we shouldn't class ourselves as having an excellent chance of overcoming either.
Even Athletico are not unbeatable but the fact their sitting second to only Barcelona and well ahead of Real in the Spanish league plus have been champions league runners up twice in recent seasons must make them very hot favourites for this competition.

2.) 16 Mar 2018 15:33:13
I'm mostly worried about how our fans get treated, with everything going on, I can't imagine the sentiment towards bits is very cheerful over there! But hopefully there's a big police presence to prevent anything nasty, it wouldn't look good for them just before the world cup if there fans go on a rampage! But then we might have to worry about the police too!

3.) 16 Mar 2018 16:47:24
I'm not sure the Russian government cares what anyone thinks of them Eden mate, don't go there it's just not worth it for Arsenal or England fans.
Hopefully the club will be proactive given the circumstances and help set up a fan park here in the UK so people can still get together on mass for the atmosphere if they want but without putting themselves in unnecessary danger.

4.) 16 Mar 2018 18:33:53
Eden it’s no different now than it would have been a year ago in Russia. This is just the latest in a long line of similar going ons. If fans go there and don’t want trouble then I imagine they won’t find any! Would we be as worried in the USA whose government do equally dodgy things? I have not followed the story as it all appears like more of the same old propaganda to me. Is it 100% proven it was the Russians. I’m sure that the Russian authorities will put on a safe evening for the Travaling arsenal fans. If fans stay in the areas and Turn up prompltley watch the game and stay in designated areas the it will be fine.

5.) 16 Mar 2018 18:38:04
I'm happy with the draw just meant for our fans going there mate we should get through but every the is going to be a tricky one.

6.) 16 Mar 2018 19:37:03
Yeah I knew what you meant Stephen I was just messing about mate.



04 Feb 2018 10:18:51
i would like to see lacca on the left with pea and miki as front 3 against spurs.

1.) 04 Feb 2018 11:50:56
Pea on the left if anything. I think you send out the same team as yesterday and if need be sub iwobi and move auba out left and laca through the middle . Auba will score goals out wide. He was in that possition a lot yesterday.

2.) 04 Feb 2018 11:56:55
I would take out iwobi and xhaka and put in wilshire and elneny and have a front three. Yesterday was the day to put all four in not away to spuds.

3.) 04 Feb 2018 12:45:27
I would take out iwobi and xhaka.

The night before the game and lock them in my basement . Job done.



31 Jan 2018 22:54:39
surely that is it for arsenal now with only 8 mins left don't see us getting any one else in was hoping to add a defensive player but would like to say a massive thanks to all the eds for your hard work and rest up well until the summer.

{Ed001's Note - if only mate.}



31 Jan 2018 12:24:05
is it true ozil has just signed a 3 and a half year deal.

{Ed002's Note - Yes a deal is agreed.}

1.) 31 Jan 2018 12:33:58
If true certianly makes the transfer window a whole lot better. Just need to sort out a DM and CB out now.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 13:19:23
The guys outrageous! This is brilliant news 😍.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 13:28:48
I think someone said there would be another signing 😁I’m absolutely made up. Respect to my man oezil 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻.

4.) 31 Jan 2018 15:02:48
thanks for reply ed.



31 Jan 2018 11:50:31
eds do you see anyone else coming in or is that it thanks for the hard work.

{Ed002's Note - RTP.}

1.) 31 Jan 2018 12:16:57
what is rtp.

{Ed002's Note - Read The Posts.}

2.) 31 Jan 2018 12:54:45
Robin Tan Persie.

{Ed007's Note - :-D
