Hi Ed002, did Tottenham agree a deal with Brighton to sign bissouma?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


 

 

01 Feb 2022 00:52:06
Hi ed002. Thank you for your help to this January transfer window from all us arsenal fans. Can we get a summary of your honest opinion and thoughts of our January transfer business please :)

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - January is always a difficult time and the club remain in this strange position. Good news will come if top-four could be achieved. Huge changes last summer leave the club yet to settle. The situation with Marseille is tough. The need for forward will need to be rectified in the summer - the youngsters want placating or they will be gone.}


1.) 01 Feb 2022 11:26:57
Makes sense ed, not sure top 4 will be achievable, just don't see where we will get the goals, but hopefully we can integrate the youngsters now that the squad is thin and see if they are able to play those backup mins. Thrown at the deep end, bit unfair but I guess that's what they want?

{Ed002's Note -As an example, and like so many do nowadays, Khayon Edwards is demanding guarantees of game time and refusing to sign a contract. It needs resolving.}


2.) 01 Feb 2022 13:13:41
It's a tricky one Ed, is this a problem lots of clubs experience do you know?

Also, following the discipline of Oezil, Guendouzi, Saliba and now Auba will this strict regime impact on us signing new players do you think?

{Ed002's Note - It is a significant problem for leading clubs. There is an impact on signing players for those clubs that are less attractive, for whatever reason.}


3.) 01 Feb 2022 13:48:48
Thanks for the quick response Ed.


4.) 01 Feb 2022 09:02:41
Thanks Ed025. Would you mind sharing your opinion if Arteta's tough stance with Guendouzi, Saliba, Oezil and now Auba will impact how players will view coming to Arsenal in the future.

{Ed025's Note - i wish other managers would show the bottle mikel has sally, some of these prima-donnas hold the club to ransom and you have had more than your fair share, the likes of ozil, sanchez and now auba have been absolute scum bags imo mate, i really hope you have a change of luck and sign some players with backbone and loyalty to the club....but keep your hands off DCL.. :)


5.) 01 Feb 2022 21:39:50
Can't promise that Ed! haha

Think I must have got confused. I seem to have asked the same question to 2 eds ?.


6.) 01 Feb 2022 21:43:59
And good luck with your new manager Ed025, Frank seems a good fit for you.

{Ed025's Note - cheers sally..


7.) 02 Feb 2022 11:04:30
ED025 - I cannot agree with this comment enough. and I wish more arsenal fans would see this is what Arteta has been trying to do at the club. don't get me wrong he has made mistakes, but he is a young manager still in the first 2 years of his first-team managerial career, he is going to and this is what the club signed up to when we gave him his first-ever job.

I do believe he has done more good for the team than bad in his short time so far.

{Ed025's Note - i think he is getting there hampshire after a bit of a sticky start, he inherited some poor players as well and getting them off the books to bring in some quality is never easy mate, i loved him at everton and wish him and the gunners all the very best..good luck..


8.) 05 Feb 2022 03:43:51
Hey Ed. He may not fit into our system at all, so not saying he’d be a good signing… but are Arsenal looking at Dybala being that he’ll be on a free…?

{Ed002's Note - No.}


 

 

05 Nov 2021 16:25:30
Hi Ed, are arsenal looking to sign the Fiorentina Striker Vhalovic?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - one of a umber of clubs.}


1.) 05 Nov 2021 22:28:40
Thanks ed.


 

 

07 Sep 2021 14:30:32
Hi Ed002. Do you reckon Elneny will leave arsenal this window? I saw that Turkish teams are trying to buy him.

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - Only if the permanent move/wage issue can be resolved.}


1.) 08 Sep 2021 13:04:45
Thank you.


 

 

09 Aug 2021 13:59:27
Hi Ed do you know if Brighton and arsenal have had talks about nketiah? Is there any possibility for a deal involving Bissouma or will these be completely unrelated?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - Brighton are keen on adding a striker and he is an option. It is nothing to do with Bissouma.}


1.) 09 Aug 2021 15:16:06
Thank you.

Hi ed001, how are you mate? Just wanted to get your thoughts on arsenal potentially signing Zinchenko from Man City?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed001's Note - I think it would be a good signing. He offers versatility and cover for Tierney's regular injuries. Decent player as well.}


1.) 16 Jul 2022 13:45:42
Ah mate Ed001 apologies, just saw this post after I asked the same question. I've heard you're the man when it comes to player reviews so had to get your opinion on this. Thanks anyways, hope you're well!

{Ed001's Note - no worries IG. All good here just fed up of not having proper internet as i moved room a couple of days ago and they have to install my WiFi. I don't know what i did with myself before the internet but it seems anything i try and do requires a connection now.

How are things with you?}


2.) 17 Jul 2022 14:33:20
The absence of internet can cause anxiety and i don't feel too good about that.

Things are good mate with me, trying to get my hands on an Arsenal Tottenham ticket for the game in October. I'm coming to London at that time, will also be traveling to Spain and Germany before that for a much needed vacation. But as you can guess I'm really really hoping I get to watch my first game at Emirates and what a game it will be.

{Ed001's Note - it is frustrating not having proper internet but it has allowed me to get things done like unpacking etc.}


 

 

16 jun 2022 21:39:21
just want to say that that i feel arsenal fans need to relax. i understand we are signing fabio vieira but we need more so don't get excited. we need 2 strikers, i.e jesus and osimhen, 1 winger to replace pepe i. e. gnabry, a cm i. e. tielemans, and either a rb or lb such as djed spence. do not lower your standards for this football club! we deserve the best.

DagenhamGooner

1.) 16 Jun 2022 22:03:20
We do need two strikers Dags along with Nketiah. Jesus will come to Arsenal to be the main man. Do think Osimhen will come to be second striker?


2.) 16 Jun 2022 22:29:11
Barkeep, I'll have one of whatever he's having please.


3.) 16 Jun 2022 22:31:37
Just for clarity, do you actually mean i. e, rather than e. g? Honestly not being obnoxious.


4.) 16 Jun 2022 22:59:28
What difference do our standards make? They will sign who they sign, we can't affect it, no point worrying about any of it.


5.) 16 Jun 2022 23:33:20
Eden we can affect it. Fans need to raise standards and stop always accept mediocrity or get excited about a player you’ve never seen play. If you want the old arsenal back where we were competing for the best honours, raise your standards.


6.) 17 Jun 2022 10:30:43
Dags - I would argue this is getting the old Arsenal back, to a degree. I get your point mate, we should expect the best. But the Arsenal of old has never really had success seeking the 'best'. Vieira, Petit, Gilberto, Fabregas, RVP, Koscielny etc were all relatively unknown. Heck, Cazorla, Henry, Rosicky, Pires, Overmars were only slightly more established, but not exactly considered 'the best' around. I would argue the likes of Ozil, PEA and Partey as the most established players we have sought.

My point is, Arsenal's history of success is mainly built from relatively unknown, young players. We will never be a club like City, splashing millions on Haaland. I can't say I have ever watched or heard of Fabio Vieira, but from what i'm reading he fits the mould of our recent player profile. I think he does bring some excitement.

{Ed001's Note - sorry but that is utter nonsense. All of those players were extremely well known, particularly Rosicky, Henry and Overmars. Overmars was seen as a massive coup when you signed him. Vieira was only available because he had struggled after a move to Italy as he was having difficulty settling in, but he was a big name youngster that they bought in the first place. Petit was probably the closest to an unknown and only in respect as it was an unknown that he could play in midfield as he was a centre-back. Arsenal's entire success was built on big spending on well established names - hence why you were originally known as the 'Bank of England' club.}


7.) 17 Jun 2022 10:39:57
what does not seeing him play before have to do with not getting excited, I have not seen him play, but obviously read up now and he sounds like a highly regarded player by people who know a lot more than you and me.

I hadn't seen Ronaldo play before he went to utd, or (OG) Vieira came to arsenal. I was still excited about both after reading up

you may not want to get excited DG and that's fine, but why tell others not to and then suggest it's because their standards are not high I find it really odd, we are building, with harder opposition and more teams with money than when we built the 90/ 00 teams.

Fans and media need to let go of the past, we are not that team or that club anymore, and its not a 2 team prem anymore ( as in the main attraction used to be Arsenal and UTD)

is it the marquee signing we all want, NO,
is it an exciting signing and in line with what we are building? YES
lets not put a downer on everything the club is doing.


please don't take that as an attack DG, its really not meant like that.


8.) 17 Jun 2022 11:31:44
Not taking it as an attack Hampshire mate. What I’m saying is that it’s One signing. Let’s not get overly excited about one signing. We have huge holes we need to fill in the starting 11. The signing can be a very good signing, I’m not denying that. What I’m saying is we have been starved of great signings over the years, do not get overly excited about this one yet. Let’s get all the signing the team needs to allow our young players to flourish, only then should we get excited. How many years have gone by and we have said we need this or that? Let’s get excited after we as fans get what we deserve.


9.) 17 Jun 2022 14:55:38
It is what it is DG and yours and anyone else's getting upset with it will only effect you and those who choose to get upset by its happiness levels.

Some people get optometistic over anyone new while others getting pessimistic about anyone who is not of there personal liking but the reality is until they put on an Arsenal shirt nothing is known about anyone but it 77m Pepe who everyone went crazy excited for or 30m Ramsdale who everyone moaned about until both appeared in our shirt and showed what they could do for the Arsenal.

Wait and see, it's the only rational option.


10.) 17 Jun 2022 19:25:12
I get what you're saying DG and I agree, I'm certainly not excited by the signing I wish him all the best and I hope he's a great signing but there's plenty more important positions need filling before it. But it's early days hopefully those will be addressed before the start of the season and then we can get excited, but if they're not, what do we do to show our displeasure? Riot? ?.


11.) 17 Jun 2022 19:43:02
Eden mate, have you ever called your boss and told him to stick his job because of the way he spoke to next Tuesday afternoon at 3pm?

No neither have ???, what's the point in getting upset about something that hasn't happened or not happened yet.


12.) 20 Jun 2022 15:27:59
Yes, absolutely echo that last statement DG mate, A few more departures and key areas sorted and it looks like it has the chance to be 2 decent summers of transfers.


 

 

04 Jun 2022 16:00:06
Hi ed001 how are you mate? Just wanted to get your thoughts on the potential of Tielemans signing for arsenal. What's your thoughts on him replacing Xhaka, the player himself and if you think he's a good fit.

DagenhamGooner

{Ed001's Note - I am not a big fan of Tielemans, he is a very half-arsed player. Will sprint forward but strolls back and doesn't do enough work defensively for my liking. He can be decent going forward and is better technically than most players, Xhaka included, but his lack of workrate is bad for team spirit and we are seeing now how Leicester are starting to struggle. The team is falling apart because of players like him. Personally I would avoid him and look for someone like Bissouma or Ndidi, who actually work hard.}


1.) 05 Jun 2022 03:58:06
I agree with ed001. Leicester were pretty hopeless this year and couldn't defend, partly because Tielemans left the work to Ndidi. I have to say, those voices clamouring for Rogers at Arsenal have quieted down. Good manager for a spell but his team's always come unstuck in defence after a little while.

{Ed001's Note - he can't organise a defence or motivate players and there is no discipline within his squads. He is a bit like a poor man's Pochettino.}


2.) 05 Jun 2022 09:59:11
I think you're spot on Ed001. He's a good player but that's about it. Arteta would like him to be his Bernando Silva but I just don't see that kind of overall roundness in his game. Bissouma is my personal fav for that position too, a double pivot of Partey and Bissouma would be very dynamic.

{Ed001's Note - I detest Bernardo Silva, I mean the guy thought it funny to sing a song about Sean Cox, the Liverpool fan who was left paralysed by Roma fans, but he is one hell of a player. Shame he is such a detestable piece of dirt. Bissouma is a fantastic player, but I wonder how much the court case hanging over his head will affect his chances of a big move? The allegations are extremely serious and not the kind that you would want to associate the club with, if he is found to be guilty. I am not sure how much risk clubs would be exposed to if they signed him and he were to be found guilty. To me that is the only explanation for him not already being at one of the Champions League sides. The risk must be high.}


3.) 05 Jun 2022 11:08:31
Thanks for the response Ed. What’s your thoughts on Gabriel Jesus potentially signing too?

{Ed001's Note - at least he works hard, but he lacks any actual quality that a forward needs other than that. You already have a lot of forwards who don't score enough goals, I don't see the need to add another one. I would say avoid him like the plague.}


4.) 05 Jun 2022 11:46:40
We should of gone for Osihmen. Looks like it might be a long season ahead for the arsenal. Last question ed, he’s probably not signing, but thoughts on Gnabry as a player.

{Ed001's Note - he has improved a lot since leaving but is made to look a lot better by poor defences in Germany, so it is difficult to judge how good he really is. I would say he is better than Sancho was, but as he has struggled so badly in England that is not really saying much.}


5.) 05 Jun 2022 23:41:29
I honestly didn't know about the Sean Cox bit, quite distrubing to hear. Apart fromt hat Jesus seems to be a good signing but without UCL I'm afraid he could be our no. 1 target. Osimhen would be great if attainable. What do you think about him?


 

 

17 Mar 2022 08:14:56
Hi ed001, thoughts on the match yesterday mate?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed001's Note - didn't see it mate sorry. I am not watching league games at the moment as we won one I was unable to see and I am extremely superstitious. Since I have been unable to watch City have folded, so I am steering clear.}


1.) 17 Mar 2022 11:39:38
Loool fair play that mate!

{Ed001's Note - it is not so difficult while I am in the UK to be honest as me dad is too tight to pay for decent internet, so I can't even stream it!}


 

 

11 Dec 2021 19:34:16
Hi ed001. Just wanted to get your thoughts on aubameyang vs arteta? Auba was dropped today for disciplinary problems and before that he's been very poor for us.

DagenhamGooner

{Ed001's Note - it is not really like that. This is something Aubameyang has done throughout his career. This is not the first time he has been dropped because of it either. You will be well rid of him.}


1.) 12 Dec 2021 04:53:31
Apparently him and Klopp didn't see eye to eye either.


2.) 12 Dec 2021 08:16:11
Dortmound had to suspended him on two separate occasions even though he was in prolific form on the pitch.

At Arsenal he's neither doing it on or off the pitch but he does have that huge contract and two more years left on it, so I don't suppose he personally feels in any desperate need to resolve anything.


3.) 12 Dec 2021 13:41:54
Thanks Ed. Just one more question mate. With arsenal clearly wanting a striker in January or December, we are being linked wit Vhalovic and Calvert Lewin, both probably unlikely transfers. What striker, realistically, do you think arsenal should go for?

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure that there is an urgent need for January and it is far from an ideal time to recruit players. Folarin Balogun has been doing really well in PL2 and deserves more chances with the first team. A decision needs to be made with Eddie Nketiah and a new contract, else he will be gone soon. Marinelli can also provide cover. Some players the club have been considering like Jovic and Moussa Dembele are just possibly still an option. Others like Darwin Nunez and Youssef En-Nesyri are far less likely as they have far more attractive options than Arsenal available to them.}


4.) 12 Dec 2021 19:04:30
Hit the nail on the head with balogun there Ed. For the life of me I cannot understand why he hasn't had more minutes this season. Auba has been poor and plus this disciplinary issue. Lacca most likely leaving and nketiah has said he wants to leave. Can't see how balogun who has signed and wants to be here hasn't had more minutes.

Afternoon Ed. Any truth that arsenal have activated the release clause of Fabio Viera from Porto plz?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - Fabio Vieira (AM) Porto want to keep the youngster and have no intention of selling. Previously Arsenal, Bournemouth and RBL have had approaches turned away but Arsenal could look again. Has also been watched by Spurs, Leicester, Wolves and Liverpool.}

Sorry yard mate but that’s rubbish. We needed a cm in the summer and stuck with Xhaka when he’s clearly not good enough. We let maitlan-Niles leave on the first week of January when Partey and elneny have afcons, xhaka a liability and lokonga still learning his trade. The club are run so poorly and all fans need to realise this.

Hi ed002, with Marseille banned from transfers for the next two windows, I’m assuming that rules Salina out of a transfer, would you confirm please? Also, does guendouzi return in the summer then because he’s only away with an obligation to buy?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - Marseille are appealing. Any pre-agreed options and obligations can still go ahead.}

Think I need therapy after yesterdays performance. Ed001, realistically, arsenal aren’t going to sack the guy because we gave him a new contract. What would you do this summer, ins and outs to bring arsenal back? Not the competing for top 4 arsenal, the real arsenal who were competing for titles.

DagenhamGooner

{Ed001's Note - for starters you have to build the defence around Saliba. It is ludicrous to have a player that good, who supports the club, and then spend tens of millions to replace him without even giving him a chance! And a left-back. I know you all love Tierney, but you can't rely on him and the season is too long to have a left-back who only plays every so often. Cucurella would be the obvious choice to replace him imo. Go and get Aouar finally done, the lad wants to join and is a good player. Then it is about getting an actual centre-forward in, as you really lack a top class one. Osimhen or Jonathan David would be good options. I am not sure you need to let anyone go, unless they want to leave, as Arteta has fallen out with so many you lack squad depth already.}
