Hi Ed,

Hope you had a good Easter weekend. Is there any interest in PEA, and any interest in moving him on?



{Ed002's Note - I had a good weekend thanks Alex but obviously I don't recognise Easter. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyangadingdong (S/LW) Arsenal were kind enough to give Aubameyangadingdong a nice new contract 6 months ago - it is unclear why, but coming up to 32 it would not have given a boost to or protected his value meaning that which he sucks £350k a week out of the club the future is pretty bleak unless he wants to move to China or to Turkey. Dropping wages and seeing his time out in the graveyard of elderly strikers at Inter Milan or perhaps Manchester United might be an option but there is no obvious interest.}

Thanks Ed.

Hi Ed,

When Bellerin goes, do we have a replacement lined up?



{Ed002's Note - No, not lined up.}

1.) 26 Feb 2021 21:41:13
Thanks Ed. Can you speak to targets?

{Ed002's Note - Typically there will not be targets for players who may just leave. The likes of Aarons who is a true target for others may be of interest.}

2.) 28 Feb 2021 22:45:16
ED, early days but arsenal need to sign Martin Odegaard right? Are arsenal interested making the deal permanent. I suppose the better question is, would real and he be interested in making the deal permanent? I’ve read he’s really happy at the club.

{Ed002's Note - There is no option and Real Madrid will be looking to save some money and likely hold on to him next season whilst others are sold.}

3.) 28 Feb 2021 23:16:40
Ed, would you have a rough figure of how much odegaard would likely cost at the end of the season should he become available? I’m struggling to think what the figure might be, I reckon between 30-40 mill.

{Ed002's Note - I can only guess because there is no plan to sell right now - and that would be perhaps £35M.}

4.) 01 Mar 2021 00:20:06
Really appreciate the response Ed!



18 Feb 2021 14:02:22
HI Ed,

Know how you had to speculate, but was curious if there is a likelihood that Odegaard's deal is made permanent? Mikel seems smitten.


{Ed002's Note - Martin Odegaard (RW/AM) Arsenal beat Real Sociedad to a loan in January but have no option to buy. Real Madrid are happy to including him on a lengthy list of players that they are open to selling or including in exchanges - and that may suit Seville who have a player that Real Madrid are showing an interest in. Ideally Real Madrid would like an auction for him but will seek €40M for a cash sale.}

Thanks Ed.

Hi Ed,

I know you have provided a list of departures, and it includes Lacazette. Curious if you can elaborate on what'S happening at centre forward. Are we still in for Odsonne Edouard? YOu have said (lamentably) that Donyell Malen wouldn't happen.

Can you please provide a bit of insight?


{Ed002's Note - Yes, interest remains in OE.}

1.) 08 Feb 2021 05:15:02
Thanks Ed.

2.) 08 Feb 2021 09:44:02
When would a move for the Celtic forward likely to happen ed of you know.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly answer questions about timescales. And remember there will be interest from elsewhere.}

3.) 08 Feb 2021 12:34:24
Thanks ed,

Thoughts on AMN to West Brom? Will he benefit from Fat Sam? Is there any path for him back into our squad and where does he play if so?


1.) 01 Feb 2021 18:45:08
Hopefully leads to a deal as he’s not good enough for us.

2.) 17 Feb 2021 17:30:52
Given we are not exactly blessed with an army of outstanding players, I would consider that assessment of AMN a little harsh. He has rarely been played in his preferred position, where he has arguably deserved a punt.

{Ed047's Note - where would you see him in a midfield 3 UC?

Out with a whimper.




15 Apr 2021 23:30:23
ESR dummied two players to set up Pepe'S goal. Wow!




08 Apr 2021 21:52:05
What a farce.




11 Mar 2021 21:32:39
Martinez and what should have been.

Leno is turning into a calamity.


1.) 11 Mar 2021 21:56:28
Exactly mate, he is standing way out of his area on the left and he passes to a player in the middle who is surrounded by three opposition players, what are you doing?!

I re-watched the match against Leicester.

I loved seeing us dominate the game, having Leicester on the back foot.

Between Tielemans' goal (which was Xhaka's responsibility I feel) and the Ceballos bungle against Benfica, it seems that some of our CM's are prone to questionable decisions without a solid DM to steady their nerves.

With that said, credit to Xhaka for not fouling Tielemans. He seemed to really want to hack him down, but (like Leno against Benfica) decided it was better not to get sent off.

Willian's assist on the Luiz goal, but surely we can agree that our set pieces need work. We were quite wasteful of many opportunities.

I loved Mari and feel he's got an understanding of the dark arts. Love it.

Pepe was excellent, and I'm pleased to see his role in the side growing. He seems to better understand what is being asked of him. I'll put that down to good communication with/ from Arteta.

I'm glad that we were able to rest Saka and PEA. Squad rotation is something we have missed for years, maybe since the Invincibles. We have been over-reliant on a few. Maybe that is starting to change.

Things are trending up. Credit to MA and his crew. There was such great movement, confidence in possession and defence.

Also, my missus watched with me. "Who are we supporting? Help me understand what's going on. " It's a gooner household, and I'm a lucky man.


1.) 02 Mar 2021 20:59:33
Good post Alex

I was talking to mate, and he brought to my attention we actually have assets again

When was the last time we had players who are worth something.

2.) 02 Mar 2021 21:02:23
Good for you Alex mate, that's really nice last paragraph and it made me smile for you. Top man 🖒.

3.) 03 Mar 2021 09:12:28
We just need consistency and discipline now, which I thought we had until we collapsed against Wolves after such a dominant 1st half then followed it up with defeat to Villa .

Watch us pay 30M.

Maybe we can resign Gnabry too and Donyell Malen.

Frankly, that's the next step. Somewhere with a favourable tax system, that doesn't allow a government to say that the club has true operations in England.

Very astute observation Sally.
