Hello Ed's, do you expect arsenal to put in another offer for Kieran Tierney?


{Ed002's Note - Perhaps.}

1.) 04 Jul 2019 13:48:56
Thanks Ed, lol I see many arsenal supporters believing he’s already on his way to Heathrow airport.

2.) 04 Jul 2019 15:23:42
What league they in DG? :-)



03 Jul 2019 18:37:17
Hello Ed's, any truth that Monreal has left arsenal?


{Ed047's Note - There’s a variety of reports out there DG one of which is that his contract has been terminated but then that’s reported as rubbish and he’ll back for pre season on the 5th.

I’d hang on a day or so and see if the club release any info mate.

1.) 03 Jul 2019 19:41:08
It's an interesting one really if it is true because Monreal has provided us with much needed cover recently. Without a deal for Tierney or some sort of replacement announced can we really afford to let him go?

2.) 03 Jul 2019 21:56:23
Thanks Ed, hopefully he did leave, I want Tierney!



26 Jun 2019 13:49:56
Hello ed, with Arsenal's limited budget and the likelihood of us signing Saliba and loaning him back, do you think arsenal will go on to buy another centre back?


{Ed002's Note - Arsenal need someone now and need to reconsider their priorities. Save the Saliba money and let him move to Spurs and raise money through sales and fix the problem. Else Arsenal could look to Boateng as the price fits but the issue is his age.}

1.) 26 Jun 2019 15:41:07
I would be extremely surprised if we sign Saliba for a substantial fee and allow him to stay out on loan next season. Unless we rate him so highly that we are prepared to wait.

2.) 26 Jun 2019 16:31:50
Thanks Ed, can I ask you a serious question Ed, why are arsenal so stupid when it comes to transfers? It seems as if anyone can do their job better than they do it.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal have a major structural issue in the way the football side of the business is made up - and that is way nobody wanted the Sporting Director or whatever they call it position and they scraped around looking at Edu to fill the role.}

3.) 26 Jun 2019 20:01:54
Then why don’t they use their common sense and change the model?

4.) 26 Jun 2019 22:35:52
I imagine the regret was sven mislintat leaving and also hiring sanheli. If Ed. 002 can clear up what this guy actually does at the club, as you've previously said he is effectively a football administrator and how this affects the technical director role been offered about.
Cheers. X.

{Ed002's Note - The structure is horribly screwed. But I don’t want to start a witch hunt.}



20 Jun 2019 11:55:10
Ed is there any truth to arsenal's link to Kieran Tierney of celtic?


{Ed002's Note - Kieran Tierney (LB) emerging option as other targets are not looking viable and Arsenal cannot get the players they want - but there is interest in KT from elsewhere

1.) 20 Jun 2019 12:23:37
Thanks Ed, do you expect interest from elsewhere to win out?

{Ed002's Note - I have no expectations about it.}

2.) 20 Jun 2019 13:43:37
Thanks Ed.

3.) 21 Jun 2019 02:02:34
Hey Ed. Is one of the players they want that they can’t obtain Alaba?

{Ed002's Note - Sort of - there is the opportunity not being exploited.}



17 Jun 2019 08:50:35
Hello ed, can you tell us about whether we are expected to sign William Saliba or give us a summary of what is happening with him.


{Ed002's Note - Expectations are high that he will agree to the move.}

1.) 17 Jun 2019 12:16:31
For 20 plus million surly he had to start that’s a lot of money for. 18 year old.

2.) 17 Jun 2019 16:40:12
French newspaper reporting that he will be signed and loaned back for the next season. Signing seems to match the profile but the loaning back makes little to no sense to me unless the club are seriously considering either Chambers/ Mavropanos as first team option (s) .

3.) 17 Jun 2019 12:18:16
Thanks Ed, I expected that but do you expect arsenal to pay the asking price?

{Ed002's Note - I don't see why not.}

4.) 17 Jun 2019 12:47:23
Are we going to send him back on loan Ed? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know the plan.}

5.) 17 Jun 2019 14:57:08
How about Kimpembe, ed?

{Ed002's Note - I would think it expensive and unlikely.}

13 Aug 2019 16:29:33
Would any Ed be able to answer this question. With Emery contract having a "break" within it, when would the club decide to continue into his third year or decide that it's time to end? Does it have to be in the summer of next year, January or at anytime?


{Ed002's Note - I would expect the club and the coach to talk about it at the end of the season.}

1.) 13 Aug 2019 16:43:26
Thanks Ed, I think it’s fair to say that the club are expecting no less than top 4 especially with the extra funds they have provided in this window.

2.) 13 Aug 2019 16:46:46
I'm guessing if we get top 4 that he will stay on the 3rd year or maybe get a longer contract.

3.) 13 Aug 2019 18:22:02
Give him a bloody chance!

4.) 13 Aug 2019 18:48:21
I am giving him a chance mate, I was just interested.

5.) 13 Aug 2019 19:11:15
I'm giving him a second chance, after becoming disillusioned by him last season.
But new season new start and when all said and done he's only had one attempt so let's see what happens as this season unfolds before we worry about next season one way or the other.

6.) 13 Aug 2019 19:54:23
Personally I don't understand this second chance stuff.

Fair play to him, he took on a white elephant, when no one else wanted the job.

He is starting to get rid of wengers players who should never be at club like Arsenal . One more summer and I'd say they will all be gone.

If anyone thought this project was going to be easy then your kidding yourself.

Let's get behind emery and the club.

Josh kroenke has backed him, that's good enough for me.

7.) 13 Aug 2019 20:09:53
I'm not getting back into why I lost confidence in him last season Mark I'm just letting last season be last season and look at this season as a completely independently.
Works for me mate :-)

8.) 13 Aug 2019 20:23:33
My post wasn't directed at you John

I really believe emery can do a job for us

Where would Wenger be without the back five he inherited

Emery has not had that kick start.

9.) 13 Aug 2019 20:30:14
So far so good. Last season Emery improved on Wenger’s final season. He needs at least this season and next season to change the failing squad he inherited and impose his methods upon the club.
I just hope he is given a fair chance.

10.) 13 Aug 2019 20:48:17
I think Dick can only be judged from now, he’s had a window just for him . Last season was a free hit.

11.) 13 Aug 2019 21:24:00
Banbury he has had a season to see who he wants to stay and he wants to go.

Mesut, micky, mustafi and element will free up about 700£ a week and balance our books.

Bring the youth through and a couple of quality signings and we have the nucleus of a very good squad.

12.) 13 Aug 2019 21:40:51
I agree Mark Arsene was the perfect man to inherit George's back 5, the two managers were complete opposites with George being the sour and Arsene being the sweet but the crossover years were the perfect blend and by far out greatest ever period, certainly i'm all my years of watching.

This is Emerys time now and what happens this season is 100% on him, if we win the title or get relegated niether will be because of Arsene.
It's time to cut the boy Emery free and let him stand or fall as a man, no more blaming Arsene but equally no more trying to find slender fragments from Maitland Niles or Belerin to somehow contribute any success to Arsene either.
Let the past go and All accept it's the Dick Emery show 100% be it good or bad.

13.) 13 Aug 2019 21:57:22
Lets just hope he will get is where we wanted to and should be. Its not about giving him another chance as much we need to see much improvement especially at the back. There’s absolutely nothing personal with Emery but last season wasn’t his best but having said that that’s already behind us we look forward now as we have a much improved front and I’m happy with the back line when we are injury free also our midfield have a lot of creativity.
So we must back Emery and the team.
And if it doesn’t go our way I’m sure mark and other will have other opinion but let's be positive, the season just started and we started with 3 points and clean sheet. Looking forward to the weekend and routing for another win.

14.) 13 Aug 2019 22:11:04
99% of fans are fully on board now Moe and it's what we see that will decide if it stays that way mate.
All the talk and the predictions of doom or glory mean nothing it's what happens on the pitch from last Sunday that matters.
3pts and 3 goals better off this season after game 1 than last season, so far so very good.

15.) 13 Aug 2019 23:33:23
I like emery and wabt him to be here for at least 5 years the way he celebrated when willoc don't that tackle was great to see.

16.) 14 Aug 2019 00:50:55
Malaga it’s ok saying he’s had a season to see who he wants to keep but the truth is we couldn’t get anyone interested in some of our lot due to the fact they were paid too much for the little talent they have.

17.) 14 Aug 2019 06:37:53
It takes more than a couple of seasons to undo the damage done in the final years of the Gazidis/ Wenger era. Emery has the difficulty of adding players on a restricted budget, whilst getting players with crazy wages off the books, which isn’t an easy task. Mustafi, Mkhitaryan and Emery to name three.

18.) 14 Aug 2019 08:54:53
Back in the 20th century mangers got time and Lee Sharpes fa cup wining goal was enough to save Fergie but in the mega rich 21st century lvg got the sack to go with his fa cup success.
Would Liverpool Chelsea United City Spurs still be waiting on Xhaka to come good after 3 full seasons?
With huge sums of money in wages and fees comes huge pressure and expectation and you simply have to deliver because managers like playyes just don't get 4 or 5 years to turn things around anywhere else but Arsenal these days and I think we've learned that lessons from our mistakes witu Arsene Theo jack ect about swimming against the tide of change.



06 Aug 2019 15:36:40
Posters, hopefully if we all say "please Ed002" Ed will provide us with information before deadline, so let's reply to my post with saying "please Ed002".


{Ed047's Note - did you ever watch Die Hard 4, the bad guy had explosives fitted to the hackers computers.

Ed02 is on his way around to fit some to yours! 😂😂

1.) 06 Aug 2019 15:56:41
Except he's going to strap it to your a*se.

{Ed047's Note - 😱😂😂

2.) 06 Aug 2019 16:25:32
Pretty please with a cherry on top.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 17:02:19
DG why don't you simply kidnap Ed002 then lock him in room with just the two of you, then hit him with every weird and wonderful question you've ever thought up, I mean ever! :-) I'd give it less than 60 seconds before Ed002 cracks and tells you everything he knows:-) .

4.) 06 Aug 2019 17:02:35
Sorry ed that last reply was only meant as a joke, it was not appropriate.

{Ed047's Note - No worries MG I’ve deleted it for you.



05 Aug 2019 20:59:10
Great podcast ed001, was very enjoyable! You didn't answer my question because your superstitious so you kinda owe me now! lol. So my question is, do you expect arsenal to sign anyone else in this transfer window?


{Ed001's Note - cheers Dags glad you enjoyed it. I did answer your question, kind of! But in answer to this question, yes I do. The worry isn't this window, it is what happens in future ones if this is not enough to break back into the Champions League. There is still a hefty mortgage on the stadium needing to be paid after all!}

1.) 06 Aug 2019 13:29:49
Thanks Ed, I’m hoping for Upamecano! Do you think it will happen?!?

{Ed001's Note - not at the price they are asking.}

2.) 06 Aug 2019 14:22:58
Thanks Ed, I really hope we get him! Seems like a beast of a player.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 16:27:11
Is the stadium not paid off yet?



02 Aug 2019 20:25:55
Hello ed001, what positions would you say arsenal still need to fill and what realistic players would you fill them in?


{Ed001's Note - off the top of my head I would have to say defenders. As for realistic players, I really don't know. The market is insane so realism is gone!}

1.) 02 Aug 2019 21:31:42
That’s truth but we all know arsenal are cheap lool.

2.) 02 Aug 2019 22:08:19
Ed just a quick question because you know about Coutinho, is there any truth in him joining Arsenal on loan?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry. Barca were looking to sell last I heard.}



01 Aug 2019 19:19:06
Ed with the Nicolas Pepe signing are arsenal still looking to sign anyone in this window and if so would you provide us with a list of names please.


{Ed002's Note - The answer is the same as before.}

1.) 02 Aug 2019 10:47:27
Dags, give ed a break mate.

2.) 02 Aug 2019 11:03:38
I can’t find the list that’s why, can someone tell me what to search in.

3.) 02 Aug 2019 16:27:32
It's been said before I guess
1 CB on Loan or Free mostly

I think all other Mid and prospects are ruled out now so we wouldn't need to revisit those lists.

Ed I know you don’t do blow-to-blow updates but do you expect arsenal to bid for him especially knowing that we are approaching deadline day and teams usually panic with how much they spend.


{Ed002's Note - I am not making prediction to simply have them thrown in my face if I am wrong.}
