Hi Ed, any chance that Partey leaves this summer?


{Ed002's Note - Thomas Partey (DM) Juventus have asked after his availability and Arsenal have a number of aging DM players which may see him depart with Xhaka.}

1.) 23 May 2023 20:06:29
Thanks Ed.

2.) 25 May 2023 12:34:24
Think it's time to let him go if I'm honest. Obv off field allegations aside as I've no idea what's true and what's not but on the field he just isn't consistent enough for such a key position. With injuries and going missing in some games.



28 May 2022 22:53:12
Cheick Doucoure seems like a realistic target. Ed, can you please confirm if we're interested?



{Ed002's Note - Cheick Doucoure (DM/CM) Crystal Palace are interested in the Lens player as an option to Winks or Edson Alvarez. Watched by a number of other sides including Monaco, Arsenal, Everton and Toulouse. A possible Neves replacement for Wolves. Might be difficult to get a Work Permit for in England unless paying over the odds. Brighton might provide a wildcard option to replace Bissouma.}

1.) 29 May 2022 08:41:43
Does it look like Bissouma will be leaving for certain? If we manage to land him, I'll be thrilled. Such a classy player.

2.) 29 May 2022 15:18:23
Thanks Ed.

Hi Ed,

I asked this question a few months ago, and you obliged me with an answer. Curious if things have changed given recent performances.

Which of the lads on loan have a future with the club (thinking of Nelson specifically) ?



{Ed002's Note - Something like this:
Alex Runarsson (G) available - may stay in Belgium.
Hector Bellerin (RB) Loan to permanent.
William Saliba (CB) Marseille want a permanent deal. Player wants out and has made it clear publicly that he wants to stay in Marseille. Arsenal want to keep him and his agent says he will stay but is seeking some assurances from the club but they have yet to make a decision over the player. Atletico offer an option.
Pablo Mari (CB) Has made it clear he wants to be playing. An initial loan to Udinese may be made permanent.
Konstantinos Mavropanos (CB) Loan to permanent with Stuttgart or an escape route from Arsenal to Dortmund.
Matteo Guendouzi (DM/CM) Marseille has an obligation to buy the player when a couple of conditions have been met. They may well have the opportunity to sell him on immediately, but are not looking to do that. Player has made clear that he will not return to Arsenal.
Lucas Torreira (DM) Fiorentina will keep him at the right price.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles (RM/RWB) looking for more playing time. Arsenal will try to keep him. Roma will not take up their option. Southampton and Newcastle may offer options.
Reiss Nelson (RW/AM) May look to run down his contract. Arsenal don't have space for him in the first team.}

1.) 29 Apr 2022 20:05:14
Thanks Ed, very appreciated!

2.) 01 May 2022 19:02:22
Thabks Ed002 great inisght. Are there any changes in the interest shown for incomings in the summer? I know a lot depends on where we finish but could you tell us where our interests have been shown? Players like the Udinnesse RB Molina, Jesus, Rashford, Tammy Abraham, Victori Osimhen mentioned amongst other.

Thanks in advance. Love your work


{Ed002's Note - I expect changes to the targets if Arsenal don't qualify for the Champions League.}

3.) 01 May 2022 19:20:46
Thanks for the quick reply, from the previous list thatnyou provided, any other new players where we are showing interest? Even Aurelien Tchouameni amongst mentioned too.

{Ed002's Note - With a no.}



15 Mar 2022 14:16:05
Hi Ed,

Interesting to see Ballard and Balogun line up against each other. Do either have long-term futures at Arsenal?



{Ed002's Note - Daniel Ballard (CB) Millwall have been told by Arsenal that he is in their plans and will not be sold. The player will likely want to see what the future holds at ArsenaL. Seems to be well liked.
Folarin Balogun (S) was frustrated at the lack of opportunities at Arsenal and his "agent" was again offering him around in January with interest from West Ham and Bayer Leverkusen. A loan to the Middlesbrough is going well enough for his agent to be trying to get more interest. I would doubt he has a future at Arsenal.}

1.) 16 Mar 2022 10:04:26
I've always felt Flo is unsettled at Arsenal so I'm not surprised by Ed002's comments.

2.) 16 Mar 2022 12:07:45
Happy about Ballard though. Looks like we’ll have defenders who will play together for years.

Thanks Ed have a great day.

3.) 17 Mar 2022 23:10:30
Chatted with some Boro fans who think he has lots of potential, but needs another loan to toughen up. Definitely not ready for the first team yet though.



29 Nov 2021 15:06:16
What the scoop on this romanian MBappe, Ianis Stoica?


{Ed002's Note - Ianis Stoica (RW/F) has been watched by scouts from Brighton, Arsenal and PSV but FCSB have no interest in selling in the short-term unless a very significant offer were made. Not first choice for PSV who are looking for an upgrade on Doan.}

1.) 30 Nov 2021 16:40:19
Ed, is there anything you don't know?

{Ed002's Note - I really don’t know.}

2.) 02 Dec 2021 17:19:44
That response is right up my street, Ed ?.

Hi all,

Curious as to your thoughts on Reiss Nelson. I really hope he takes a step up, and builds on his progress from the weekend. Curious if you lot think he can make that next step.


{Ed014's Note - hi mate, it’s funny as Arteta has talked about him glowingly but I’ve always been a bit doubtful and when he came I said come on Nelson, “change my opinion”

He went a long way to do that but obvs one game doesn’t prove everything but if Saka’s out for a couple of games he won’t get a better opportunity.

1.) 31 Oct 2022 20:22:44
The club is of the opinion he will make to the next level.

{Ed014's Note - that’s kind of how I read it Yard and I’d be more than happy if it turned out to be true.

2.) 31 Oct 2022 20:23:04
It would be really great if he could provide real cover for saka. You could see in his interview it meant a lot to him after just expecting to sit on the bench. Couldn't have taken his opportunity better! Hope he really kicks on!

{Ed014's Note - hopefully Marquinhos steps up to so we have even more competition at the top end of the pitch.

3.) 31 Oct 2022 22:24:22
The talent is obviously there. His footwork is brilliant and as a pure winger, as in right-footed right wing, we have a role for him. I think he needs a run of games to believe in himself, after so many stop-start moments in his career. He followed up the brilliant loan at Hoffenheim (for several months he was considered even better than Sancho by some in the Bundesliga) with a big tailing off by the end of the season, and then the disappointing spell in the Eredivisie. Arteta obviously believes in him but he'll be 23 soon and I think this is basically his last shot to make it at Arsenal.

4.) 01 Nov 2022 11:38:05
It would be great if the Hale End could push out another success story.

5.) 01 Nov 2022 14:00:35
I haven't seen enough of him to know, but like Mal, I would love to see another academy success.



01 Sep 2022 15:11:46
What a time to be alive!

Team is playing so well, with players committed, a passionate manager who understands the culture, and a management team who had a great transfer window, bringing in talent and sending out players that wouldn't get game time.

All this, and Ed002 is back (maybe for a good time, not a long time - but we'll take what we can get) .

I haven't been this excited for football in a decade. I bump into fellow fans in Arsenal kits, and they echo the sentiment.





21 Jul 2022 15:06:21
Don't know about you lot, but I'm quite pleased with our summer so far. The lads look happy and the new signings seem to be adjusting well. The team sheet is impressive, and is filled with versatile players that can handle multiple responsibilities. Moving a few players out will avoid keeping any malcontents, but generally, it seems like attitudes have changed within the side. Compared to where we were last summer, Arsenal have progressed nicely.





24 Feb 2022 21:49:14
What just happened?! Different team playing to the last minute to win. Proud of the lads. COYG!


{Ed025's Note - great spirit there alex..

1.) 24 Feb 2022 22:00:18
Hey ed25! Missed you mate! Hope you're well? Looking a bit dicey for your boys!

{Ed025's Note - hi eden, im good at the moment thanks, yeah mate we are in trouble but there are 6 or 7 in the same boat, should be interesting..

2.) 24 Feb 2022 22:02:37
That's a result, back in the days of Yor when United were relevant and there were 144 penny's to the £1, how may times did they snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in Fergie time.

I'm impressed.

3.) 24 Feb 2022 22:14:15
Yeah the bottoms got really tight! Fingers crossed for you guys! And I hope Newcastle go down!

{Ed025's Note - so do i mate...cheers..

4.) 25 Feb 2022 06:30:29
We have to thank Wolves for time wasting, which gave us the Fergie time.



31 Jan 2022 22:53:26
Has anyone done the math on the reduction in our wage bill this january?

Wild that a player who was at Coventry last season (scoring every three games) is now worth €100M.

Attacker: Havertz
Midfielders: Rice and Lamia
Defender: Timber or Simakan

I love the proactivity, but i wonder if that's our shopping done? Seems like we'll spend the rest of the summer thinning out the squad, but the fixture list will be full next season.

I'm curious what the difference is between these two 'thumbs up' icons?


{Ed033's Note - The larger one is an Ed thumbs up and the smaller one is the poster thumbs up.

He is great, but no one is bigger than the club. If he's going to disrupt the wage structure, and is going to be a problem in the room, he should be moved on.

Hi Ed, is it him or RIce? ANd if so, which would suit the club better?


{Ed001's Note - they play different roles, they are not an either or situation.}

And more stuff coming out today, ridiculing Mbappe post game.

He saves pens but his ball distribution isn't what it should be for a "top level" keeper.

Toney is in a bit of hot water. I agree with Sally that we should bring back Flo, and with Stephen that we should never have sold that handsome devil Giroud!

Indifference I hope. In Arteta we trust.
