Hi ed002. Would you please provide us with a treat and name the final CDM arsenal are looking at please. From your posts I know it's bissouma; Berge and someone else. Think everyone here will really appreciate it.


{Ed002's Note - It will end up with me being abused and being told I am misleading you again. Not worth the grief.}

1.) 24 May 2021 21:02:23
No you won’t ed I think everyone knows how much we appreciate you all.

2.) 24 May 2021 21:07:44
Ahh no worries Ed. The real posters really do respect you and the other Ed’s though mate.

3.) 25 May 2021 10:12:03
The trouble is Dags, we can all appreciate it but the info is accessible to everyone. If Ed provided information then the people who do hurl the abuse his way still get to see it. It's a case of the minority spoiling it for everyone else unfortunately.



31 Mar 2021 13:13:12
Hi Ed, I saw before you said Hakimi didn't find arsenal an attractive club. Would you said securing champions league football helps with being attractive or is being attractive deeper than this?


{Ed002's Note - Being in the Champions League would certainly help.}

1.) 31 Mar 2021 15:26:09
Thanks Ed.



04 Mar 2021 08:44:28
Hi Ed. Would you be able to provide a list of potential incomings for the summer please? Thank you!


{Ed002's Note - Ask in a week or two please.}

1.) 12 Mar 2021 15:15:50
No worries Ed thank you. Is now a better time for you to provide a list please?

{Ed002's Note - Not yet.}

2.) 18 Mar 2021 22:39:14
What about now ed.

{Ed002's Note - Try later next week please.}

3.) 19 Mar 2021 15:12:49
Ha everyone is watching this thread. Thanks Ed!

4.) 24 Mar 2021 09:39:40
What’s about now lol.



27 Jan 2021 12:38:21
Hi Ed, would you mind providing us with a list or an update on our left back situation please.


{Ed002's Note - It is true that Arsenal have asked a representative of Marseille about ex-Aston Villa defender Jordan Amavi and she has explained he is out injured right now.}

1.) 27 Jan 2021 13:19:37
Do you reckon he would be a good signing?

{Ed002's Note - He would simply be cover - it seems suffiecient cover already exists to me.}

2.) 27 Jan 2021 14:48:08
Who? Cedric? Don’t think so mate.

{Ed002's Note - I didn't say anything about Cedric. What's wrong with you?}

3.) 27 Jan 2021 16:00:20
No need to ask what’s wrong with me. I was asking if you meant Cedric.

4.) 27 Jan 2021 16:23:58
Dags, for me Cedric was man of the match and he was playing lb

Wtf do you want out the Arsenal, I think you need a reality check son.

5.) 27 Jan 2021 17:45:55
I’m saying that we have one left back. Yes Cedric played well yesterday but it was one match. He is not left footed. Against Southampton in the FA cup we needed a natural left back. Against Crystal Palace, maitland-niles played there, again we needed a natural left back. If you don’t think we need another left back then you and Ed need to wipe your eyes.

6.) 27 Jan 2021 18:21:09
Oooooh handbags 👜 at 10 paces and to think we once thought dags and Malaga were the same person 😂
Maybe they are both and ed02 is them as well
It’s a BANTER site guys remember and chill your beanz 🤣🤣.

7.) 27 Jan 2021 19:55:28
Haha all fun and games mate🤣.

8.) 27 Jan 2021 22:52:22
I wouldn't mind seeing Gabriel or Mari given a go there either. Both seem very capable and it's a shame to exclude them when both are fit. I enjoyed Cedric's performance though. Saka can also play there, but we lose our best attacker.

9.) 27 Jan 2021 22:52:48
Hey Dags smile buddy and what happens with the club we have to accept.

10.) 28 Jan 2021 10:29:40
I do agree that we should have a natural LB as cover for Tierney, but it doesn't seem feasible to have 5 full backs (should we sign Amavi this window) for two competitions now. Would rather we sign him on a pre-contract to join in the summer, then look to shift AMN for a decent fee as I can't see him having a future here (I'd also sell Bellerin if the right offer was made and then go for Max Aarons)

11.) 28 Jan 2021 18:54:20
Deffo agree on the Max Aaron’s for Bellerin CB. That’s a good shout.

12.) 29 Jan 2021 12:29:05
Just out of interest Ed who do you believe is cover for Tierney? Assuming saka? As niles is going out on loan so imagine saka and cedric will be used as cover.

{Ed002's Note - Saka is available to provide cover.}

13.) 29 Jan 2021 15:51:59
I think Cedric ahould be our first choice RB tbh. if that does happen and AMN gets a loan deal then yes, Saka would be our cover. Not great to have one of our best attackers as cover for LB, I know we needed players off the wage bill and perhaps Kolasniac was not happy not playing, but I always thought he did a solid job as cover if not setting the world on fire 🤷.



31 Dec 2020 14:58:05
Hi Ed. Thank you for the list of outgoings. Would you be able to give us a list of the potential incomings for January/ Summer please.


{Ed002's Note - Arsenal will keep looking and don't expect too much in January - and remember the club have already gambled a lot of future income away, so funds will be very thin on the ground:

Omar Rekik (CB) youngster joining from Hertha Berlin - I would think a loan is likely.
Dominik Szoboszlai (LM/CM) Moving elsewher.
Fabio Vieira (RM/CM) an ex Arsenal player recommended FV who would likely be open to a move if Arsenal were to find the required €30M.
Joan Jordan (CM) Another midfield option - but not cheap.
Berkay Ozcan (CM) Only moved in the summer but Arsenal have asked if Basaksehir would be open to making a profit on the player. Apparently not - a missed opportunity in the summer.
Julian Brandt (AM) again a player being considered by Arsenal. He would be a reasonable price and would be an Oezil replacement.
Leon Bailey (LW/RW) A player who has had his mojo drifting away and Bayer Leverkusen are open to moving on this winter. Spurs are keen but want the price to drop further. Prior interest of Everton and Leeds has drifted away - Everton already being over loaded with players who are predominently LW and Leeds have preferred options. Arsenal may offer an option.
Donyell Malen (F) Arsenal want to resign the player to replace Lacazette. Borussia Dortmund have him on their list of Sancho replacements. Won't return to Arsenal.
Maxi Gomez (S) Financial issues at Valencia mean that they will listen to offers for players but want to hold on to Gaya whilst they have told interested sides that neither Carlos Soler or Maxi Gomez would be sold cheaply. I am not aware of any approach by Arsenal who would see him as a replacement for Lacazette perhaps. Whilst his price is high, his return in terms of goals is not great. Very unlikely.

1.) 31 Dec 2020 16:23:19
Thanks Ed!

2.) 31 Dec 2020 16:42:48
Thanks Ed. Any idea if the Rekik guy is good? Also Ed, any idea if Saliba is good?

{Ed002's Note - Saliba is seen as a very good player by those in the French game. Arsenal has a whole bunch of unhappy players - he as you can expect is one. Arsenal have wasted a chunk of his career. Omar Rekik has a good reputation as a player but there have been issues (the same issue) at Feyenoord, PSV, Manchester City and Marseille where he has spent time as a youngster. The lady from Marseille made it clear tehy were happy to let him move on. Not ready for the first team and probably more CB fodder for Arsenal.}

3.) 31 Dec 2020 19:32:28
Thanks Ed, Happy New Year.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome. Enjoy you new year.}

4.) 01 Jan 2021 15:27:48
Great info -thanks Ed and happy new year. Sounds like a quiet Jan for Arsenal.

Hi ed001, hope you're doing well mate. I thought at one stage you done a top 10 goal keepers in Europe post but I can't seem to find it. Would you mind giving a brief summary of the strengths and weaknesses of Onana, I've seen him play once and he made a mistake against Liverpool.


{Ed001's Note - that was a long time ago I did that on goalkeepers. I haven't seen Onana play this season, but he was a good shotstopper, agile and quick across the ground but dodgy positionally and a bit rash when I last saw him.}

1.) 02 Jun 2021 10:58:37
Thanks Ed. I’m not actually sure if he was in your top 10 keepers. You reckon he will be a great signing for arsenal then mate?

{Ed001's Note - I can't remember if he was either, it was a long time ago and I did a British goalkeepers one since. He should be a decent signing though it has to be a worry that he is serving a 12-month doping ban. I don't agree with the nonsense about mistakes, they know what they can and cannot take.}

2.) 02 Jun 2021 15:07:15
Agree Ed, anyone sports person who takes their career seriously wouldn't find themselves in his situation. From what i've read he was found with Furosemide in his system, which is a diuretic (water tablet) , so makes you pee more. Athletes have been known to use these types of drugs to flush their system and mask the use of other banned substances. Hence why diuretics are banned in most sports.

3.) 02 Jun 2021 16:41:44
Thanks Ed!

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}



19 May 2021 09:42:09
Hi Ed001, question for you mate: Sander Berge or Bissouma got Arsenal and why?


{Ed001's Note - Bissouma because he is a much better player.}

1.) 20 May 2021 09:30:37
100% agree with this Ed. Berge would be a cheaper and good option but Bissouma would be the great option.

2.) 20 May 2021 09:46:44
Thanks Ed. You reckon he will join Liverpool or arsenal mate?

{Ed001's Note - no idea.}



07 May 2021 09:52:42
Ed001, you reckon arteta will be sacked mate?


{Ed001's Note - I have no idea, but I would think the difficulty in replacing him would mean he will get until the summer.} Become a Patron!

1.) 07 May 2021 12:01:00

As a fellow Red, do you think Rafa would be a good fit for them mate?

I think he’d at worst offer stability within the league with constant European place finishes. You’re pretty much guaranteed that they won’t be as much of a walkover as they have been on times in this last 5-10 years with Rafa, even if it’s not the sexy long term young manager appointment that some may crave.

{Ed001's Note - with the mess behind the scenes at the club, it would just turn into a battleground, so probably not the best choice. Though if he won and got rid of Edu and the other gimps, then he would be decent enough.}

2.) 07 May 2021 12:21:33
It really doesn't matter if he stays or goes, either option is unlikely to change anything. We are not getting into the top four, five, or six.



27 Apr 2021 21:55:08
Hi ed001, you reckon Kroenke might sell to the Spotify fella?


{Ed001's Note - no, I don't see any reason for him to do so.}

1.) 28 Apr 2021 10:39:51
I do think he might make some money available in the summer to get some fans off his back.



23 Mar 2021 10:14:06
Hi ed001, just wanted to know how you think Odegaard has done since joining arsenal and if you think he should be signing in the summer? Thank you.


{Ed001's Note - I have not been watching Arsenal lately, been trying to get caught up on articles so only been watching the odd game other than Liverpool. Sorry.}

1.) 23 Mar 2021 12:55:12
No worries thanks Ed.

{Ed001's Note - what about you? Has he impressed you?}

2.) 23 Mar 2021 14:42:54
I think he’s done alright but it seems everyone loves him so maybe I’m missing something. Will need to pay attention to him a lot more during games and to be fair he’s only 23 so will only get better.

3.) 23 Mar 2021 23:06:39
In my view Dags he has the same qualities Ozil had for us when he first started with us, albeit with a bit more rawness and lacking Ozil's effortless flair, but he makes up for that by giving maximum effort every single game. He's always pressing from the front and tries to win the ball back with every challenge. He has the combination of talent and hard work that is required to become a superstar in time.

Bissouma is an option; Hakimi is too expensive; Onana we are pushing for a deal and not sure about the other players.

Thanks Ed, every arsenal supporter is just desperate for them to sell. How about your opinion on this Ed, which is better for arsenal: Kroenke to leave or edu to leave?


{Ed002's Note - It is not an obvious choice.}

09 Jun 2021 14:20:26
Ed, you got good sources on transfers but I’m not sure if you do on takeovers. Do you think Kroenke will sell following Ek’s offer? They don’t “need” to sell but with the new offer do u think they will sell?


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea. It would depend on whether they are open to selling and whether any offer matched their expectations.}
