Ed do you reckon that all roads lead to arsenal getting Arteta as manager? I definitely believe so.

DagenhamGooner

{Ed047's Note - if I’m honest I don’t DG I really don’t think the club are in any position to gamble whatsoever and Arteta would be a huge gamble.


1.) 12 Dec 2019 17:26:32
Not being funny DG why do you think the club will go for Artetta mate?
What would be the thinking behind thrm appointmenting a totally untried option after getting it so wrong with Emery. I'd have thought they'd be taking thier time in order to get the safest pair of hands they can possibly get this time.


2.) 12 Dec 2019 22:45:51
Frank @ chelsea.


3.) 13 Dec 2019 03:10:01
ED who do you logically see as the front runner? And who would you appoint?

{Ed047's Note - logic would say one of Ancelotti or Pochettino because we have got ourselves in a position where gambling on an unknown/inexperienced manager could have serious consequences.

Either of those are far more likely to get us back on an even keel which is clearly what we need right now.

We can probably forget winning trophies for a while yet too because we have to sort the mess out. We are royally hampered by the situation upstairs which is not helping our cause.


4.) 13 Dec 2019 10:03:22
Every journey no matter how long begins with the first step Edinburgh Ed047 mate and by far the most important thing is to turn around and make sure your facing in the right direction before you take that step.
Accept where we've got it so wrong in the past on and off the pitch and start the business of getting back on track.

{Ed047's Note - I just don’t know if they can do that, does it mean one or other of them has to relinquish some power to enable the right things to happen.

Do they see that? Are the willing to do that?

We really don’t seem to have any plan or idea of what to do. Are they interviewing 10 possible candidates to see who fits best in their set up rather than someone best suited to achieve things.


5.) 13 Dec 2019 16:54:27
Other than Josh and Stan everyone is an employee mate and I'm pretty sure Stan hasn't made his billions by standing back and letting people run his interests into the ground.
Yes Stand let Arsene carry on far too long and . while Emery in many people's eyes should have gone last summer 18 months wasn't exactly fiddling while roman burned.
The one thing Stan and Josh seem to fully understand is empty seats and ultimately what that means for the club and their investment in the club, if they are missing the champions league dollars Just imagine how nostalgic they will be for the premier league pounds once they've gone.
Personally I'd rather they interview 100 candidates than knee jerk with the first available easy option mate.
Things definitely need sorting out from top to bottom but doing that in one fail swoop is impossible especially half way through a season and unfortunately there is no quick painless fix we'd all like there to be.


6.) 13 Dec 2019 23:27:52
Gunner, I’ll be honest I’ve never really heard of a club making as big of a deal of interviewing candidates for a managerial position as we are and did prior to emery. A club usually just goes for who they want. For example spurs with Mourinho. And To be honest, I’m not sure who arsenal think they are throwing statements out like that with our fixture list, league position and hostility within the club. It’s embarrassing Thinking top end managers would even want the job mid way through an awful season. The board should have just said, we’re taking the employment of the next manager seriously and won’t rush the decision. Imagine actually throwing out a number like 10. The owners haven’t got a clue about football.


7.) 14 Dec 2019 09:35:10
Hi cold mate your right the number that's being reported is crazy but has the club actually come out with that statement or is it much like our only having 30 million to spend in the summer rumour just a media statement the club hasn't actually ever made.
Before Emery was appointed the club was claimed to have given the job to Artetta which obviously wasn't true then last summer we only had 30 million which again wasn't true and now the club want to interview 10 not 9 or 11 but exactly 10 candidates? I'm not so sure myself mate.
It seems to me we've not done much different to United with Moyse LVG and Jose or Liverpool with Hodgson and Rogers or Spurs with every manager between 1961 and Poch but for some reason at Arsenal there has to be this huge controversy rather than just we didn't get our first attempt at replacing Arsene spot on and now we are not panicking but trying to do betrer next time.
I have no intention reason or need to defend the board at all but I'm just trying to look at things rationally rather than simply accept every negative conspiracy theory about the board as fact when so many past negative theories have proved to be false.
If we end up with big Sam or Fredie permanently then I'm happy to jump on the band wagon but if we should end up with Ancelotti or Allegri then I know I will be pleased I followed my logical mind again just as I did with the Artetta before Emery and 30 million spending limit stories before.
Surely it will be the end result that once again separates the fact from the fiction mate.

Ed you said before that arsenal have no replacements in place cause emery was the manager but now that they've sacked him can we have the list of names please?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - The club will take their time.}


1.) 30 Nov 2019 02:04:26
Be interested to see if the club waits til January. Unlikely to be any money to spend mind you.


 

 

29 Nov 2019 16:36:13
Ed001 you predicted emery so well and I think you have the golden touch, so who do you predict will end up as arsenal manager? Or if you don't know why don't you name a few you think could come mate?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed001's Note - I honestly have no idea who is coming. Arsenal have been so keen to avoid this situation mid-season that I do not think they are prepared for it at all. I expect a caretaker from among the coaching staff to be appointed while they try and find someone.}


 

 

12 Nov 2019 19:21:00
Hello Ed002, wanted to ask if arsenal have a list of targets for January/ summer?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - They are continuing to consider the likes of Cole Bassett (CM) Bilel Hassaini (RW) and Aleksandr Sobolev (S) who makes little sense.}


1.) 13 Nov 2019 11:12:42
I'm not sure what singing any new players would achieve as we stand.
Save whatever money might be available until the summer when the management situation will be sorted one way or the other.
Seems to me the more players we sign the worse we get since Sven left.


2.) 13 Nov 2019 16:00:42
Never hear of any of them.


 

 

09 Nov 2019 23:17:18
Ed001 you were the first one who told me Emery will sign for Arsenal, do you think he will get sacked?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed001's Note - he will certainly not be there much longer. The only thing I can see which will keep him there past this international break is the issue of finding a replacement. Mind, there is still Wenger available.....}


1.) 10 Nov 2019 08:25:19
Thankyou for the response ed, do you have any insight on the sort of replacements we are after? Is Freddie an option? Thanks again.

{Ed001's Note - I am sorry you are misunderstanding, that is probably my fault as I realise I put it in the wrong page. I was giving an opinion, that finding a replacement would be the only thing that could save Emery now. I don't know of any search having begun for one yet. I will ask now but it is Sunday and most people I know are likely to be sleeping for a while yet!}


2.) 10 Nov 2019 08:54:13
It's not your fault ed, we are just too hopeful that the sack Should come any moment now, maybe Monday who knows! Please keep us updated with any information you get, thanks for all your Amazing work eds! Praying that this ends now.

{Ed001's Note - I will let you know if I hear anything back.}


3.) 10 Nov 2019 14:02:13
If the board have not been actively, or even furtively, seeking a replacement, the chances are that Emery will not be going anytime soon. This board has a track record of dithering in all its dealings, so I don't expect a decisive mindset to overtake them now.

I won't be surprised if Emery is still there at the end of the season, as bizarre as that sounds.

Hello Ed's, any truth arsenal number one target for manager is Patrick Vieira?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - Obviously not as they have already approached others.}


1.) 08 Dec 2019 16:52:00
Other than Marcelino who have arsenal approached Ed? I couldn’t seem to find them when I searched your name in.

{Ed002's Note - They had a third party approach someone who already has a job as well.}


2.) 08 Dec 2019 18:11:24
Would u say who?

{Ed002's Note - He has a job already so it is unimportant.}


 

 

04 Dec 2019 17:26:19
Can I just get the Ed's views and posters views on AFTV (YouTube channel) ? They get criticised but just interested in others opinions.

DagenhamGooner

{Ed047's Note - it’s like anywhere you get a group of fans, you are going to get a variation of opinions.

It’s certainly fairly popular, to the extent Sly had Robbie and DT on their Sports News programme after Emery got sacked.

I guess it gives fans a chance to vent, some rather embarrassingly but footballs an emotive sport so passion runs high.

I’d hazard opposition fans get some mileage out of it too!


1.) 04 Dec 2019 20:58:26
So Ed are you for it or against it? Some pundit called Simon Jordan was calling the people who go to give their opinion “low IQ”.

{Ed047's Note - Simon Jordan isn’t a pundit he’s an arrogant semi rich p***k who loves himself.

AFTV isn’t my thing if that’s what you’re asking DG but I’m not against it either.

What’s your opinion of it?


2.) 04 Dec 2019 21:45:00
People who mock other people's IQ say so much more about their own intellectual quotient than they do about anyone else's.


3.) 04 Dec 2019 21:59:28
I quite for it, quite like the transfer round up he does through the windows, just saves me reading the paper drizzle. But some of them on their actually have decent views on the club, although some of them are terrible to listen too.

{Ed047's Note - you have to give them credit for going to literally every game home and away all across Europe too.


4.) 04 Dec 2019 22:28:58
Absolutely they are passionate and for them Arsenal is a way of life.
Is Mr merchandise Ty still around?

{Ed047's Note - isn’t that the guy who always had headphones on and literally loved Arsene.

I don’t know is the answer 62, I’m not a regular watcher.


5.) 04 Dec 2019 22:46:35
Yeah that's the man Ed mate, sooooo positive about Arsenal and Arsene no matter what happened.
I've not watched it for a couple of years but always thought Robbie did a brilliant job of trying to keep things as balanced as possible even when his own disappointment was obvious to see.

{Ed047's Note - be interesting to know what he thought of Emery 😂


 

 

01 Dec 2019 20:38:46
Hello ed001, just wanted to get your opinion on Allegri and Brendan Rodgers as managers? Do you rate them, strengths/ weaknesses etc?

DagenhamGooner

{Ed001's Note - neither are really effective as managers. Both are coaches that need a director of football type above them.

Allegri has always operated as a head coach and, while defensively solid, he does have a reputation for being extremely difficult. His teams do not exactly play attacking football but he knows how to win.

Rodgers is a good coach, but only in the short term, in the long term his teams end up overplaying and playing possession football, passing for the sake of passing for long periods. His recruitment is appalling as well. He has no eye for a player at all. Oh and long term defensive coaching is an issue. He took over a solid base at Leicester, but he wouldn't have that at Arsenal and he has no idea about organising defences.

How come you didn't ask about Marcelino? Someone who has actually been approached. He is like an over-excited leprechaun bouncing around on the sidelines but gets good football from his teams of the kind more suited to Arsenal. Long term, again, he would be a problem as he talks far too much and will complain constantly about issues.}


1.) 01 Dec 2019 20:56:42
Thanks Ed, your replied quickly! There are whispers that Pochettino is the man arsenal want, opinions?

{Ed001's Note - never going to happen, why would he want to join Arsenal? This is a man who has said he would never manage one of his former team's rivals.}


2.) 01 Dec 2019 21:36:51
Yeah that’s true, I JUST WANT ALLEGRI!

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure it matters who is put in charge until you sort out the rest of the club.}


3.) 02 Dec 2019 13:17:13
Thanks Ed, I wonder if Rodgers will be tempted to leave.

{Ed001's Note - he will go anywhere for money and probably claim to be a lifelong fan as well.}


4.) 02 Dec 2019 13:29:48
Lol sour grapes Ed. I don’t see him coming arsenal to be honest anyway.

{Ed001's Note - nothing to do with sour grapes, if he wasn't interested in jumping ship for the money he would have said he was not ready to move having only just taken over at Leicester. Instead he just made sure everyone knew it was true that he had a get out clause. He joined both Liverpool and Celtic claiming to be a lifelong fan of both, but he was happy to jump ship from Celtic when offered a pay rise. Everything is about him, all him. If his team wins, it is because of his decisions. A player plays well, it is because of something he did. When things go badly though, it is always someone else's fault, never anything to do with him.}


5.) 02 Dec 2019 14:19:10
Lool so ed do you think he might end up at arsenal?

{Ed001's Note - no idea. Seems unlikely Kroenke would splash the extra cash required after the heavy spending in the summer and then paying off Emery.}


6.) 02 Dec 2019 14:33:31
Fair enough, thanks Ed mate!

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

27 Nov 2019 14:48:23
Hi Ed, you said Vieira as director of football but why him in your opinion? He's a manager which is why I'm wondering why you think he's qualified for the role.

DagenhamGooner

{Ed002's Note - He would eb a better Director of Football than coach.}


1.) 27 Nov 2019 16:15:19
Well the advise you always give arsenal never incorporate so fair to say that that’s not going to happen.
