News coming in from Ornie/ The Athletic that Emi Martinez has been left out of the squad for tomorrow (club+his+agents decision)
Deal to villa imminent with him being No.1

Brighton might bid too.

Gutted to read this. Arteta just hours ago said he would pick according to how they perform in training and was non committal on a starter for tomorrow.

Tough choice. But onwards and upwards.

On another side - David Raya is touted and is 10-15M apparently. Crazy for a No.2 as it would almost be no profit on Emi.

Matt Macey featured today. So Illiev on the bench tomorrow?

We should seriously start to consider putting Arthur Okonkwo in the squad 💯%.

11 Sep 2020 21:14:21
I think judge the decision at the end of the window, if we lose Martinez and don't get a DM then it's cray but if we line up with Leno and a quality DM then great business.

12 Sep 2020 08:29:30
Any chance we can put in a first refusal or relegation buy back clause. Really like emi but understand that he wants to be a guaranteed number 1.

12 Sep 2020 10:05:39
I would hate to see us sell at 15 to 20m and buy at around the 15mMark to leave little money for a decent CDM - unless Emi is being a big paid or could lose him for nothing soon but may be this is part of a huge master plan where all the small piles of millions at up to a squad changing signing. Surely the Brentford boy is under 10m.

Such a shame to lose Emi. Would rather sell Leno 💯 and Leno should attract interest. If not then have we down graded.

12 Sep 2020 15:22:20
I can understand having to sell Its a shame but he know wants be be gauranteed number 1 and we can't give him that guarantee. don't see the point in spending all sale money on another number 2 to replace though what does that say about Macey surely we need to start being confident in him being number 2 now?

12 Sep 2020 18:51:45
I think everyone forgets how good Leno was before his injury. If 6 months ago someone was offering £20m for Martinez you’d have snapped their hand off.

He played really well the last chunk of the season but he is also the same keeper who struggled to hold down a number 1 spot in the championship.

I agree with comments about the bulk of his fee being used on a replacement being frustrating, but better sell and get someone in who is ok with being second choice and happy to fight for first.

10 Sep 2020 20:33:27
Surely we're not interested in Stephan El Shaarawy? Would be a ridiculous move if true.

Nuff said Davy.

Hi Ed’s any legs to the PSG Draxler for Guendouzi swap rumour? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Draxler has been offered around as he is in the last year of his contract - so it makes sense for PSG but not for Arsenal. The player wants a new contract.}

Agree2 Disagree0

10 Sep 2020 14:02:19
Could he not be an alternative to Aouar, he has shown himself in the past to be a class act on the ball. Do you see the problem with Arsenal going for the deal one related to high wages, too many wingers or his loss of form? He has in the past said his preferred position is central attacking midfielder in behind the striker. I known at PSG he hasn’t been sparkling but a new club with less pressure to match players like Mbappe and Neymar could allow him under Arteta to rediscover his best form. At 26 and a regular German international he could still have his best years ahead of him.

{Ed002's Note - Of course but he is not a player Arsenal want and he doesn't want to move to Arsenal.}

10 Sep 2020 10:57:12
Hi Ed. With PSG signing florenzi, would you expect Bellerin to stay or are their conversations with Barcelona taking him?

{Ed002's Note - It simply removes one opportunity.}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Sep 2020 17:44:37
Thanks Ed. You said arsenal have their heart set on Partey and with money hard to find because we are struggling shifting players, is it fair to say it’s Partey OR Aouar or are both deals unrelated?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

10 Sep 2020 18:35:03
Can’t lie Ed you didn’t answer that properly. Would u please just be able to clarify what you meant by no.

{Ed002's Note - You are creating weird little dioramas in your head based on ifthenelse concepts that don't exist.}

10 Sep 2020 20:42:26
Loool answered perfectly Ed, thanks for the clarification.

09 Sep 2020 20:35:08
Hi Eds,
With Arsenal focused on Partley but the release clause being the issue have we not looked at or considering Marc Roca?
Its mentioned AM are wanting him as a Partley replacement. He seems a solid player and has a good pass on him as well.
Surely be cheaper than the 45M we need to pay for Partley.

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine.}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Sep 2020 01:54:15
Try answering question ed that's what your here for.

{Ed001's Note - no he is not. We are editors, not question answerers. Do not tell us what we are here for on a site you get for free. Some people are just so self-entitled! Get something for free and then start telling us what to do. This is the problem with the modern world, ungrateful people like you who think they should get more, instead of being glad for what they have.}

10 Sep 2020 07:28:42
Stiv come on mate 😑😑😑 That even pissed me off.

10 Sep 2020 07:29:38
Without the EDs there's no page period!

10 Sep 2020 07:33:28
Wow stiv65 what a clown people like you shouldn’t be here.

10 Sep 2020 08:31:21
Christ ed that was a mild reply! . Why don’t you just tell him to pisz off.

{Ed001's Note - I was trying to be nice. Turning over a new leaf an all that with there being more important things to worry about at the moment. I am just wondering how can we make it any clearer that we are editors to keep the page ticking over and check the posts to make sure they are not abusive etc than to call ourselves eds! People get really offended if we don't jump to it and do what they tell us within seconds. You have to wonder what kind of home life they have to believe that they can just order random people around. If I started telling people what they should be doing, well let's just say I wouldn't dare in case me ma found out. She may be getting old but she still scares the bejeezus out of me!}

10 Sep 2020 08:54:43
Deliberately trying to sabotage it for everyone else, I’m saying it years on here.
Hopefully the Ed’s see it for what it is.

10 Sep 2020 08:54:58
Can you ban this stiv65 what a toxic person don't need this on the site.

{Ed001's Note - I have not seen the name on here before, is this normal from him? If so his account may as well be deleted. I was just thinking he might not normally be like that so giving him a chance.}

10 Sep 2020 09:09:36
To be honest I wouldn’t change anything mate, your doing alright as it is, you’re always going to get a few keyboard dick heads.

Just keep giving the trolls a reply that makes them look a complete bell end

Anyway good job and well done.

10 Sep 2020 09:16:30
Never seen em before Ed001 mate. Might be another username from a previously booted poster.

10 Sep 2020 09:23:45
To be honest, I've had my fair share of blows with Ed002 over the years but that doesn't mean for a second that I don't appreciate what all of the Eds do on here, especially Ed002 for his insights on transfers.

I think that comment from Stiv was purely just to get a reaction and I don't recall seeing that name on here either Ed001.
The situation of Marc Roca has already been clarified on here so it's a justified response.

I jump on this page a few times a day and enjoy the conversations that we all have so it would be a shame if it was ruined by a small minority of people.

Thanks to everyone on here for what they bring to the page, Ed's and Arsenal fans included :)

{Ed047's Note - he was on the United page a few days ago about C.V., I wasn’t as polite as ed01 though. 🤦‍♂️

10 Sep 2020 09:56:39
Think you should wait and see if he replies. He might realise what he said was wrong?

10 Sep 2020 09:53:15
Hi Ed’s,
Seen the post from last month, apologies should of searched first.
What are your views on the comparison of Roca v Partley? Release/ termination clauses are similar, Partley maybe more experienced but surely Roca is better investment?

Oh and I don’t support stiv65 comment, I appreciate the posts and answers to offer here.

{Ed002's Note - Roca is younger and well respected - and doesn't go off to AFCON. This is why Atletico are keen. Marc Roca is a TP replacement for Atletico who has interested Milan - but they have gone down a different route. Atalanta made an approach to Espanyol but opted for Muratore. Arsenal have lost out on their first choice and set their heart on Partey, but did have Roca on the list.}

10 Sep 2020 10:56:16
Hooe you don't take notice of people like that eds I hate to lose you all from this page again and it was horrible not having Ed 02 insight I appreciate all you do on this site thanks for the great work.

10 Sep 2020 11:20:39
Anything can happen and Arsenal have supposedly stayed they want a few more players but with us seemingly struggling to offload players. Do you see much business happening? Partey Transfer is dragging on a bit.

{Ed002's Note - They have to balance the books and don't have the cash right now. So departures are important.}

10 Sep 2020 12:35:14
Couldn't done it and most probably being blind but who was the first choice as always assumed partey was.

Also a good thread to say thanks to all the eds for your work and comments. Many true visitors on this site be it just to read or comment really appreciate it.

10 Sep 2020 13:35:11
He’s obviously from another team trying to stir rubbish.

{Ed047's Note - well he’s just got himself binned off whoever he supposedly supported mate.

10 Sep 2020 16:15:25
Good don't need that stuff here I enjoy people like raver coming in with good fun banter but not people toxic towards the eds or others.

{Ed047's Note - totally agree mate

10 Sep 2020 23:58:50
With such impatience and lack of community understanding, he’s probably on here for tips or a good word to place a bet on the transfer market. But still lack common understanding and etiquette.

11 Sep 2020 17:17:36
He had previously said this: "Imagine any Arsenal fan saying they don't think Lukaku is good enough he would walk into your team the fact that is he wouldn't go to yous as Arsenal are a spent force. " so he's not an arsenal fan.

{Ed047's Note - 100% not eden, just someone seeking some attention 🤷‍♂️

17 Sep 2020 11:41:38
Seeking no attention saying it as it is simple as that deal with it.

09 Sep 2020 17:53:25
Ed is this Nuno Mendes kid we've been linked with just another one of Kia's boys?

Is the interest real or more tabloid nonsense?

{Ed002's Note - He would be an able Tierney replacement and much of expected of him but the €50M plus asking price has been putting clubs off.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Sep 2020 19:28:28
Why all the rumours about kt leaving he’s class.

09 Sep 2020 13:24:17
I see Barcelona are going for Hector if we can get decent money for him I'd sell him I don't really rate him as a good rb to be fair and we have cover in them position and could use the cash for our midfield.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Sep 2020 13:52:38
Fully agree mate.

09 Sep 2020 15:45:54
Barcelona join PSG Juve Bayern as being interested in Hector? Are we absolutely sure there isn't something we are missing before we let him go? Surely the class of the chasing clubs must tell us something or should we simply ignore the obvious and just plough on as we always do?

09 Sep 2020 18:08:14
Agreed 69 they’re top quality clubs if he goes it has to be for top money which we use wisely.

09 Sep 2020 19:20:35
Hi 737 mate, if Bill Gates Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos suddenly start showing an interest in buying your house and offer you the market value without quibbling you'd be a fool to not wonder what they knew that you didn't and either reevaluate your asking price or even reconsider selling at all.
I know a lot of Arsenal fans don't rate Hector but surely the fact 4 of Europe's very top clubs want he is enough to make those Arsenal fans wonder what they've missed in Berlin?
If if was ever to happen that Barcelona PSG Bayern and Juve all started asking about Xhaka I'd certainly question my opinion about him.

09 Sep 2020 19:28:44
Big big mistake.

09 Sep 2020 20:59:02
So we let a player Possibly good enough to play for PSG and Barcelona go, and replace him with a player Southampton didn’t think was good enough and who let leave on a freebie? And this is supposed to help us get in the top 4 exactly?

09 Sep 2020 21:32:05
Exactly lads, can Barcelona Bayern PSG Juve really all be wrong about a player who we consider expendable? You wouldn't want to pitch Arsenal's logic on Dragons Den and hope to be considered as a good investment for a top 4 return would you?

07 Sep 2020 23:07:21
Seems AV are serious about Emi. What a dilemma for Mikel!

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Sep 2020 10:13:59
Be a shame to see him go, but I'd drive him there if it meant we got Partey or Aouar with the cash.

08 Sep 2020 10:32:38
As I've said before personally I prefer martinez. However leno is a top top goalkeeper. If we get good money to reinvest where needed. What worries me is that we will need to buy another back up gk.

08 Sep 2020 10:35:14
Absolutely should be keeping both this season. Games will be coming at us faster than ever before over the course of the whole season and we will need two solid keepers. Martinez's spot to lose at the moment but no reason Leno can't earn his spot back in the cups.

08 Sep 2020 11:30:44
No, they shouldn’t.
Emi wants to be #1 and as good as he’s been he’s not going to supplant Leno as first choice keeper.
Not only would Arsenal be doing right by the lad by selling him to a team he’d get to play Every match, which he deserves, but you’re also getting back funds that are needed in order to boost the midfield—which is much more of a priority for this team than having a good #2 keeper.

08 Sep 2020 11:58:11
Surely if we sell Emi we would have to use those funds to reinvest in another keeper? Unless we have a hidden gem somewhere it wouldn't be 100% profit.

08 Sep 2020 12:24:02
Right now Emi is one of the few sell-able players that they have concrete interest in for decent money. A backup keeper can be had later in the window and for not much money. They need funds and need them asap so they can buy Aouar.

08 Sep 2020 13:17:32
Why Aouar? Partey! We have to make him our priority signing or someone similar. Aouar would be nice don't get me wrong but we don't need more flair/ silky players. If we sign Aouar over anyone that brings us stability to the midfield then we deserve to fail. Sorry but it has to be said.

08 Sep 2020 21:04:49
Sell Leno - I’ve been saying it for months. he’s a great shot stopper but not a great keeper. Cash in while he’s hot. Keep Leno and promote youth. Use money on Doucouré or Partey type player.

08 Sep 2020 21:53:24
I would sell EMI along with Torreira; the sales generated would be near on covering the arrival of AOUAR. I genuinely think creative in a midfield is missing and Partey is over priced for his age and what he brings to the table! Much rather a more sensible approach to the use of our funds and take a gamble on a slightly young defensive midfielder such as Sangare.

08 Sep 2020 22:53:46
With so many different opinions from So many different people who all ultimately want the best for the Arsenal, just shows there are no easy or obvious choices. It's not as simple as Martinez or Leno there is also the question of who is easiest to sell and for how much in order to fund new signings, Martinez is by far the easiest to move on and having two really good keepers makes no sense if you have no DM at all.

09 Sep 2020 16:35:33
Is it just me or does the passing out from the back thing not work much better with Martinez in goal. Leno frightens the life out of me when he's involved.

09 Sep 2020 20:21:52
Fighters me at corners and crosses as well as organising the defence.
