Reading that Arsenal have an eye on
Moussa Diaby. Big money signing.
Great stats 21/ 22 31 appearances 12 goals and 13 assists.
IF the rumour is to be believed.
But! I understand he's a left winger.
If! he came to Arsenal who would you say would have to step down and what way round do you think they would re-jig the front line.

Sorry everyone I have reposted a comment I made but I appreciate peoples opinion and maybe the Ed's could get in on this one.

We have had a striker issue for nearly 2 seasons now.
It's nothing new . we have scraped through games.
AUBA was les then useless and Lacazette worse worse still . Our real problem how I see it is that TOP strikers do not have any reason to play for us and it's being going on for years don't kid yourselves.
We are too unpredictable. !
How long do you think it will be before the likes of Saka will be off to the likes of Man City, Bayern, Real Madrid etc . on about £250k a week wages and transferred for around £120million getting a cut of that too.
It could be sooner than we all think!
What's all your opinions especially on Saka.


{Ed014's Note - well we’ve attracted the likes of Ozil, Sanchez, Auba and Lacazette who were all wanted else where and they weren’t over the hill has beens when we signed them so not sure that part is correct.

If all these young players can see a process and we can add further young talented players who like the look of what’s happening then why move and why won’t they come.

The likes of Klopp and Guardiola are not guaranteed to be at their respective clubs for more than a couple more years.

As for the likes of Barca and Madrid, they’re massively in debt and trying to sort their respective houses out and don’t have money burning a hole in their pockets.

1.) 23 Apr 2022 09:10:05
If the likes of Saka and co wanted to leave, it would be sad and disappointing, but not disastrous. Clubs have lost home grown talent before, it’s not new.

We would just need to play hard ball and make sure are were fully in control of the sale. Get the maximum fee, and restrict where they can go ( ie not another Premiership club) . Based on the fee we paid for Pepe, Saka would be worth considerably more, which if re-invested well into 2 or 3 players would soften the blow.

However, let’s think positively, and hope these players can see a positive future at Arsenal. It’s been said many times that the likes of ESR, Saka and Martinelli are all close mates, so you can tick the happy at work box.

Add a couple of decent signings to our current squad, and I think they will also see a positive future at our club.

{Ed014's Note - agree mate

2.) 23 Apr 2022 09:57:01
I see this from a slightly different angle. I think Saka and Smith-Rowe would be sad if the club decided to cash in on their talent. They seem so loyal to the club and I believe see their future with us.

3.) 23 Apr 2022 10:38:55
There's also a more positive spin on this- we have some of the best young talents in world football in ESR, Martenelli and Saka which must make us an exciting prospect for any players we want to sign.

4.) 24 Apr 2022 14:48:00
Yep, and another positive spin is they play in positions that would cost hundreds of millions to fill with outside talent. Therefore with those places filled, we can go spend just on the couple of places we really need to.



05 Apr 2022 04:26:56
Well. if ever anyone needed a reason to agree that Lacazette needs to be replaced there it was staring you in the face last night!
Absolutely useless.
Let's forget that we didn't seem capable of getting the ball forward let's not keep making excuses he is just shocking. I believe he's scored just one goal in open play in the last 5 months.
Which brings me on to Tavares.!
God help us with Tierney looking like he's out for the rest of the season and Cedric was a shambles too.
How in the world is this team ever going to progress in the Champions League with back up players like we have? That's if we make it into the top 4 to start with.
Arsenal were a disgrace last night. Let's not pretend they wasn't .
Crystal Palace were all over us from the get go.
I knew after 5 minutes that we were going to get hammered and Crystal Palace did a number on us pure and simple.
Also did you see our bench?


1.) 05 Apr 2022 08:21:59
Cannot argue with anything you said ALLRED. We are a work in progress and with a exceptionally young squad and now picking up injuries at the worst possible time. In my above post you will see what I said about Lacca, but his lack of goals is worrying.
Getting rid of Auba was right IMO but not bringing in a striker was a mistake. Palace gave it to us big time and we couldn't respond.
It wasn't the result we wanted but it's not a disaster and Arteta needs to get them prepared better mentally for the games.
Saturday is a tough test against Brighton but we need to show our resolve and win irrespective of the score and put some pressure on the Spuds who kick off later against Villa
Have a good day mate COYG???.

2.) 05 Apr 2022 10:39:22
I thought Cedric was our only player who played well. Get Tommy back and put Cedric on the left to cover Tierny. Tavares looks completely out of his depth.

3.) 06 Apr 2022 05:40:41
Glenn…There you go you thought that Cedric was was our best player!
That probably says it all.
We seem to be a work in progress at every turn .
This seems to be a very long turning indeed.
Is it ever going to come to an end?



01 Apr 2022 00:18:16
Probably like a lot of people you have either read or heard that Arteta may! consider leaving Arsenal at the end of the season.
( Probably will not ) but for discussion purposes on this site I can understand where this is coming from.
The reason being is that it's said that if Arsenal get into the top four that's pretty much as far as Arteta could be expected to lead them and after that any progression would stall.
Personally I can see the logic in it but
does anyone here agree with this?


1.) 01 Apr 2022 01:11:33
I saw Gary neville give that opinion, has it come from anywhere else? Otherwise it's just a guy who completely failed as a manager saying a guy who's doing well, if he gets in to the top 4 is going to rub his hands and say well that's as good I've got, my work here is done! If he's got belief in his abilities he would have a lot more ambition! He's got the youngest squad in the league who will of grown and gelled together, if he's backed in the market he's not going to at least have a crack at the champions league and achieving more? A lot of Artetas decisions that raised eyebrows and were derided had more long term benefits and could of backfired short term.

I could see it if the board sold saka or other key first team players and brought in some no hopers or he got a better job offer, but to just walk away because he doesn't think he can do anymore? It comes across as the ramblings of an irrelevant muppet who hates arsenal trying to stir something up.

2.) 01 Apr 2022 10:20:08
Very well put Eden??????.

3.) 02 Apr 2022 11:52:14
Neville is a clown and takes himself too seriously. What he's said about Arteta is nonsense. We have some of the best young players in world football who will get better and better with experience- if we can add a couple more players in the summer we will hopefully continue to improve. It took Klopp a few seasons to sort Liverpool out, it's no different for any other team who buy will and have a good manager.

4.) 03 Apr 2022 07:22:00
Forget about what Neville may or may not have said do you believe he may have a point?

5.) 03 Apr 2022 07:27:48
Agree that we have some good young players. But can we prove ourselves in the Champions League enough to sustain ourselves and attract a couple of strikers that we so desperately need.
I think it’s going to take a bit more than us just qualifying for the CL to convince any payer of any sorts to sign up . Then again we haven’t qualified yet . Just my opinion.

6.) 03 Apr 2022 09:21:21
Personally ALLRED imo Arteta is a winner and he would be satisfied this season with Champions League, he would look as Europa as a very poor second. Once again this is only my thoughts that Kroenkes have told him that if we get CL then they will back him in the Summer transfer market, the budget being on less if it were Europa as we probably wouldn't be able to attract the same calibre player. If we achieve the first objective, then go get the players we need, I think Arteta is hear for the long run, imo he doesn't see us as a stepping stone to bigger things. I have been a very fierce critic of him but he is gradually winning me round .
Very tough game Monday night but I am sticking my neck out for a 2-1 win for us

7.) 03 Apr 2022 13:19:27
Hello fellows, I get the argument about being in the CL and having the quality to sustain it, which these commentators believe needs an elite type of management. So, basically what I think they’re eluding to is that MA is not of that calibre.

It would be ridiculous and unforgiving for him to take us back there to then walk away, no way it’s not happening.


8.) 03 Apr 2022 22:07:28
I get what you're saying allred, we might struggle to attract players, and maybe arteta would feel let down if we have an underwhelming window, but like you say we haven't established ourselves in the champions league or even got there, so there's plenty more improvement needed and plenty more for arteta to prove himself, I imagine arteta wants to be a top manager and if he has faith in his abilities he will think he can improve us even more, its not really in his best interests to walk away, he's going to get better job opportunities being poached while doing well with us than if he walks away without even attempting to improve us more. It will be a poor indictment of his own belief in his abilities if he doesn't think he can do better than 4th.

{Ed014's Note - I don’t think Arteta has any thoughts of leaving us at all, he has been backed by the board in regards to players he’s brought in and players he wanted shipped out.

He in my opinion can achieve everything here before any need to move elsewhere.

9.) 03 Apr 2022 23:14:55
I agree, neville has just pulled a random opinion out of his arse to stir stuff up. He thinks that's as good as can be achieved, but he couldn't manage a shop, he can't say if someone with belief and a bit of ambition might set the bar a bit higher.

What is it with Arsenal when it comes to the transfer window?
It's like there is some kind of under current that
players that we SEEM to be interested in give the club a wide berth.

Just heard this minute that PEA is a Barcelona player.


1.) 31 Jan 2022 20:06:06
For free too surely we have something going on.

2.) 31 Jan 2022 20:11:57
It's difficult to separate fact from myth when it comes to who Arsenal are interested in but it's pretty obvious we are not in a position to attract really top players who want to compete for top trophies, and haven't been for some time now.

Pea had to go, rightly or wrongly his days of playing for Arsenal were over, as happened with Ozil and probably has happened with Saliba, there is no point in trying to patch us a relationship where one or both parties don't want to patch things up, regardless of who what where why things went wrong.

Better off trying to sign Dopey not (Depay) in the hope that he brings the other 6 dwarfs with him to strengthen up this dismal squad we have at the moment.

I like Epping Gooners reply.

But maybe you will find that it’s really his mother that should sign for Parliament.

She’s the grafter he’s just the front man.

A lot of Man United supporters I know would say they that he brings absolutely nothing to the squad.


{Ed014's Note - there’s only about 3 of them that do and one of those is the GK.

Definitely not…. An insider I know exceptionally well who has worked at United for many years said he is definitely not the most popular person around the club. His ego and attitude is on another level. So for one I wouldn’t want to see him at Arsenal.


{Ed014's Note - I’m with you mate, let them keep yet another over rated player.

Personally I think Champions League is a bit too much for us.
Europa League is where we should be at with the young players we have.
If we do well it gives them a real boost.
Let’s be honest!
Champions League is out of our depth.

100 % agree with you.
I don’t think Pepe has been given a fair chance either.
In fact I would go as far to say that every time he comes on the pitch I think he looks sharp.
NOW! if rumours are to be believed we are considering putting Saka at left back as we are so desperate … Champions League.
Come on where is all this heading?

These last 2 games were crucially MUST WIN games. Should have been a nailed on 6 points.
Now! we have Southampton ( which in normal circumstances) we should brush aside but then
Chelsea, West Ham and Man United .
Top 4? ! We need a small miracle now.
With a team harbouring the likes of
Cedric, Lacazette, Lokonga hardly top draw CL players or even top premiership quality.
Our bench looks like a comedy.
Pepe on the other hand should use this time to prove himself as I have always thought he gives
100 %… Saka I believe will be off to a new club probably the next year or so great footballer but he’s going nowhere in this set up.
Arteta . Well I think Neville was right. How much can he do with what he’s inherited.? He will
Be off aswell I think. Another shocking dismal performance.
