Don’t understand all the hype about city, or is it just a coincidence that the richest, biggest spenders who are getting investigated by FFP are currently the best, some people make out like it’s got nothing to do about the money, any club would be the same if they had that cash injection and got the best ie pep and his staff.

Firstlly, Guardiola has done a great job at City, who are amazing to watch and have done the domestic treble and only went out of the CL in the QF's on the away goal rule.
Of course the richest clubs generally do the best, as they are able to appoint the top management teams and acquire the best players. There are occasional exceptions, Leicester winning the PL being one.
I would imagine the scrutiny in terms of FFP falls mainly on the top clubs who have the ability to raise massive funds, whilst trying to circumnavigate the rules. Hence why City are currently being investigated.
If reports are correct Arsenal have been hamstrung by having to comply with FFP and the PL wage rules, which left the club in a perilous position due to the wage policy under Gazidis and Wenger and having made some costly signings in recent season, whilst not selling particularly well, with players deals allowed to run down, etc.

I hope Allegri will take a year off football and take over from Emery the season after next. Although sometimes he looks a bit odd with his tactics but I think he can improve us defensively.

{Ed002's Note - Zero chance.}

Agree0 Disagree1

19 May 2019 19:43:35
Hahahah eds, I have no doubt about what you say, I was just being theoretical and wishful 😆.

21 May 2019 12:40:07
Alegri has done a great job domestically with Juventus, but despite being the biggest club in Italy and one of the biggest in the World he hasn't had success in the Champions League. Would he be successful at Arsenal with 5 top teams to contend with, the constraints of limited funds, whilst having to cope with FFP and the PL wages rules that are clearly hindering us at present?
I belive Emery has had a decent season, an improvement on the final two seasons under Wenger. We finished with a higher points total, a place higher and closed the gap on the teams above us. We are in the final of the EL, where a win would secure a trophy and CL football.
The four players signed long term during his period at the club, have all been integrated intelligently and improved the team. I am sure Emery is aware of the changed that still need to be made and it will be an interesting summer window, particularly if we qualify for the CL, as he will have more funds available to spend.

19 May 2019 10:47:51
So do we blow over 150% of our transfer budget on Wilfried Zaha? Hopefully we get him at close to 40m including a player swap as we do need him.

Zero return from Rambo and Danny doesn't help us plus all the surgery required to give the team and squad a facelift makes me wonder what we are going to do 😡

Please don't include Nelson - learn from Gnarby mess up.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2019 21:42:30
What’s your wish list signing this window? Please be realistic.
CB : between Umtiti and Manolas
CM: Madison
Winger: Sarr or Zaha (Pepe is unrealistic)
LB: Tagliafico.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sol Campbell

19 May 2019 10:23:47
Need players with premiership experience who can come in to starting 11 straight away.

Cb - Mee and Sako
Cdm - Nidi
Cm - Grealish
Lw - Zaha

Plus promote/ more game time

Smith Rowe



Try to sell or loan out -


Already Gone




Big changes.

19 May 2019 12:05:11
Welsh mate that's too realistic although I think we need to look at slightly younger players lol.

19 May 2019 14:40:58
With an alleged budget of £40m, presumably plus sales, it is hard to be realistic as the will mean signings such as Kannemann and the young L’Orient forward, who would not be the names us fans would select.
My unrealistic choices would be:
Thomas Partey

The above would cost a fortune, but would make a huge difference to our team. Giving us much needed physicality. These would cost over £200m. We could possibly recoup:
Ospina £2m
Jenkinson £2m
Mustafi £15-20m
Chambers £10-15m
Ozil £25m
Mkhitaryan £20m
Max Total £84m

I did say ‘possibly’ as we may not be able to sell all these players.

So a net investment in players of approx £116m is probably necessary this summer in order to improve and compete.

19 May 2019 19:45:33
RG you just took the fun out of it. Just kidding mate.

16 May 2019 10:30:06
A massive 40 million to spend 😂😂what a joke of a club.

Agree2 Disagree6

16 May 2019 16:45:15
If reports are correct, it would be £40m, plus sales if we fail to win the EL. If on the other hand we win the EL, then I would imagine the funds provided would be greater.
Ospina £2m
Jenkinson £2m
Mustafi £15-20m
Elneny £7-10m
Chambers £10-15m
Total - £36-49m

Other possible sales could be Mkhitaryan and/ or Ozil.

Without CL football, the amount we can spend is clearly reduced.

17 May 2019 07:59:49
Where does this 40 millions story originate from? How reliable has this source proved in the past?
Why think it's suddenly become reliable simply because it's a negative story?
Move along in my opinion as there is nothing to be learned from this or any of the other repeatedly time proven fabricators of fiction.

17 May 2019 11:39:10
It was David ornstein, 40 m if we don’t get in the cl if we do it’ll be 40 and a pound Hahahaha but that’s what he has said, that’s a joke championship teams spend more than that.

17 May 2019 18:08:05
Fair comment if it was Ormstien but the only reference I could find to my srecj (Arsenal 40 million ) was from talk rubbish saying your comments and references to our Suarez bid of £40m and 1 back in 2013.
I didn't see anything from Ormstien at all.

17 May 2019 21:47:26
It’s on his twitter page mate.

18 May 2019 09:28:54
Oh ok, I don't do the twitter or face painting thing so that would explain why I'm out of step with reality:-)

18 May 2019 13:21:34
40 million or 400 million what does it matter, it ain't what you've got its how you use it, that's what I tell my misses which usually make her cry with happiness, well I think it's happiness anyway! Not sure now :- (.

18 May 2019 20:35:12
2018 accounts - 2 highlights

Football revenue down 35m
Wages up 40m

Explains why money is tight.

16 May 2019 04:55:38
Here would be my main targets for the summer.


I would sell

Reports this morning that if Man City are banned from the CL for financial irregularities then Arsenal will qualify even if they fail to win the EL.

{Ed002's Note - Don't hold your breath.}

Agree7 Disagree1

14 May 2019 09:14:15
Ed002 - Advice heeded! I just have a sneaky feeling that English clubs will once again be treated harshly as we have dominated both European Competitions this season.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with domination of European Competitions.}

14 May 2019 09:25:20
Politically speaking perhaps?

{Ed002's Note - What?}

13 May 2019 22:58:49
Hi Ed's,
Just wondered if there is any interest in Malcolm ahead of the January transfer window?
Also, could Richarlison ever be a target or too expensive?
Many thanks, Ed.
