Hi Ed,

I've been trying to hold back, but I couldn't resist.
With Lacazette and Nketiah both out of contract, can you speak to our CF targets? Are we going to rely on Martinelli or bring someone new in? You have previously said that Eddie might wind up staying: is this probable?


{Ed002's Note - Something like this right now:
Paul Onuachu (S) Arsenal and West Ham showed some interest this past summer. Unclear if it remains.
Tiago Tomas (F) Sporting are happy to letter the youngster move on as they see his development having stalled. Arsenal has been suggested by his agent as a possible destination - although he would not be one for the first team at this time but might be a potential replacement if Arsenal were to lose Folarin Balogun.
Luka Jovic (S) there was the option to return to Eintract Frankfurt on a loan with an obligation to buy but it depended on selling Andre Silva and not replacing him - but they opted for the well thought of Rafael Borre. Milan have a sustained interest but have opted for a cheaper solution. Inter wanted to take him as cover but they have much preferred options. Was offered to West Ham but nothing came of it. A third party enquired on behalf of Arsenal but come the end of the summer window there was no space for him - could return for him as a Lacazette replacement. Roma were offered him but the coach turned him Real Madrid will offer him in part exchange for others.
Moussa Dembele (S) just possibly still an option.
Ivan Toney (S) The player decided on a move to Brentford instead of Swansea or Brighton and that has worked well for him. Celtic also made enquiries. After a very good start to last season he has attracted scouts from a number of Premier League sides including Everton, Leicester, West Ham, Arsenal, and again Brighton. Brentford have no interest in selling unless the player pushes for a move. Proposed to Chelsea as a Tammy Abraham replacement.}

1.) 23 Sep 2021 09:44:53
Toney would be a really interesting shout.

2.) 23 Sep 2021 13:19:02
Ed you’ve made my day. Thanks!

3.) 23 Sep 2021 16:33:12
I love you Ed (and all the other eds! )

{Ed002's Note - But me the most.}

4.) 24 Sep 2021 15:12:08
No way ed002 dropped in some humor ?, sorry mate lol. Love your work and your input are very well appreciated.



19 Aug 2021 20:41:22
Hi Ed,

Thanks for the patience and information all summer.

You had said you expected a GK and an RB. Any updates on targets for the latter? Or same as previously posted?



{Ed002's Note - It will be the same for now Alex.}

1.) 20 Aug 2021 05:07:56
Thanks Ed.



18 Aug 2021 20:27:08
Ramsdale is apparently done.

Between this deal and MO, that's 18M less than anticipated for their signatures.


1.) 18 Aug 2021 23:04:32
I have to say, after watching Leno give up a goal at his near post then get bullied out of even contesting the long throw, I would be surprised if Ramsdale couldn't force his way into contention.
I am worried though - he'll be a target, like Leno, if we persist in trying to play out from the back so slowly.



09 Aug 2021 16:45:02
Hi Ed,

A short while ago we wanted Freddie Woodman. The Willock deal seemed an opportunity to make that happen. I gather interest there is done? It's all Ramsdale or Johnstone?


{Ed002's Note - Yes it has likely gone.}

1.) 12 Aug 2021 15:14:50
Thanks Ed.



15 Jul 2021 22:36:20
Hi Ed,

Koopmeiners is the latest name being linked with us. Any truth to this?



{Ed002's Note - He is being considered by numerous sides including Arsenal but there are ongoing discussions with two other sides. Certainly a possibility.}

1.) 15 Jul 2021 23:40:19
Thanks Ed.

2.) 16 Jul 2021 09:47:34
Is he any good Edoo2?

{Ed002's Note - Koopmeiners is very well liked by clubs.}

3.) 16 Jul 2021 10:17:07
Thanks mate.

4.) 16 Jul 2021 11:23:00
Ed has arsenals interest in Bissouma ended? Also do you see him leaving Brighton this summer given they have his replacement already.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}

5.) 16 Jul 2021 15:59:00
I keep thinking about Ed's comments that he would be an improvement over Xhaka, and that from what I've seen, he is a great player. I wonder though if the ACN is a deterrent, particularly as we also have Partey and Elneny - tough to lose three midfielders for a month.

Ballard has been doing so well. Hope he gets his chance next year.




09 Sep 2021 15:28:38
SallyJannine and Gents,

I was wondering what you're excited about for the coming season?

For me: increased chemistry between ESR, Saka, MO and Pepe, and I'm very curious to see how the back gels, with ma.


1.) 09 Sep 2021 16:10:00
That last line was meant to be with Ramsdale.

2.) 09 Sep 2021 17:14:08
Hi Alex, personally at moment i'm not in the slightest bit excited by the season at all but I'm really happy you mate.

My own personal view is fan interest will continue to decline until change comes but, I have been wrong before mate.

3.) 09 Sep 2021 17:55:47
I'm an eternal optimist Alex so I'm looking forward to seeing how the team react now we have most players back from sickness/ injury.

4.) 09 Sep 2021 19:14:05
To see a new manager come in haha jokes mine would be to see the youngsters play more.

5.) 09 Sep 2021 19:47:29
Sadly, I’m excited about hitting 40 points and safety. Anything more than that will be a lovely bonus.

6.) 09 Sep 2021 20:03:41
I’m so excited

I’m convinced we will start the season with one manager and finish with another …. hopefully in the PL.

7.) 09 Sep 2021 20:17:24
I guess it's down to players to do all they can to win back the drifting fans interests back the best despite the obvious difficulties that exist within the club.

8.) 10 Sep 2021 09:07:47
I’m looking forward to MA getting the sack so I can start watching again, as I will not watch until he’s gone.

9.) 10 Sep 2021 11:33:48
Nicky, just got off the phone with Arteta and he's absolutely gutted by your decision. He fears all of football may go dark because of it.

10.) 10 Sep 2021 12:35:54
Nicky that's a bit dramatic isn't it? ?.

11.) 10 Sep 2021 14:40:18
McCain have you watched any of our games, soccer aid was better.



31 Aug 2021 21:53:52
Call me crazy, but I think that this window has largely been a success. I worry about three things:
1. Resigning that buffoon Xhaka.
2. Not being able to move on Kolasinac (maybe we could make him a security guard)
3. Loaning out Saliba.

I'll not comment on WIllock, you lot have heard that all before from me.


1.) 31 Aug 2021 22:23:26
I will call it once I've seen the new players play 5 to 7 games Alex mate.

I've seen Elneny Xhaka and Mari all declared excellent signings on this page before they kicked a ball mate.

Neither positive or negative thinking about something there we have absolutely no experience of is logical.

2.) 31 Aug 2021 23:17:36
Excellent signings my Arsenal 😂

People who claimed that cleared haven’t read reports or looked at the stats of the players or considered where they have come from or looked at who else we were battling against for their signatures .

Maybe this window might be different, we will know come November.

I am disappointed we have spent 70 million on 2 CB’s, yes one can play elsewhere but it’s a lot of dosh . lol.



31 Aug 2021 16:52:00
Fabrizio Romano is saying we're not discussing Aouar, that outgoings are all that's happening.

So no further midfield reinforcements.




30 Aug 2021 23:49:16
AMN can do one.

Doesn't want to play right back. Begs to be sold to a club that intends to play him at right back.

And very unprofessional to post it on instagram. He's not 16.


1.) 31 Aug 2021 01:41:33
Talking absolute rubbish, you must be Edu in disguised I swear. Again show us where he said he doesn’t want to play right back.

2.) 31 Aug 2021 05:34:41
He has said in the past he wants to play in midfield.

3.) 31 Aug 2021 06:03:21
I think he said he prefers midfield but I cannot recall him saying it wouldn't play at RB.

4.) 31 Aug 2021 10:19:47
Ainsley Maitland-Niles told Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta that he wanted to focus on playing at right-back in a meeting at the start of pre-season, the Daily Mail report.

He’s got to be a decent RB cover or Right wing back.

{Ed002's Note - It would mean that Bellerin will not need replacing.}

5.) 31 Aug 2021 10:22:56
Think the young man is frustrated and lashed out on social media and is being punished.

He shouldn’t do that and deserves a slapped wrist but let’s move on….

“Arsenal have told Ainsley Maitland-Niles that he will not be training with the first team after they blocked his move to Everton on Monday, according to the Daily Mirror. ”.

My biggest concern is Saliba. Ed has repeatedly said he has no future with us.

As for the window, I see the club lowering the wage bill, investing in the future. I am pleased with some signings, verdict's yet to come on a few more. There is a direction, but it is difficult to stomach.

Ballard looks like a keeper. White Gabriel Ballard and Saliba (whom we'll probably be told has no future with us) could prove to be a solid, solid core.

Like Saka and ESR. I think he has helped Pepe too.

We'll see how he handles the new lot. The good news is, with all of these youngsters, if they're up for it, they can forge a real group mentality. That normally requires a bit of senior leadership though, and we seem short of that at the moment.

Saka Partey Xhaka (should be Lonkongba) Pepe
Tierney White Tomiyasu
Leno (should be Ramsdale)

That's how I see it.
