Jesus, Matt Ryan on loan from Brighton until the end of the season. A very good goalkeeper indeed and is ample back up to Leno.




22 Jan 2021 10:23:54
Signing Odegaard means less playing time for ESR. He'll take a backseat once again which will frustrating for him I'm sure. A lot of people raved about Dani Cabellos, myself included and he's not exactly been superb in his time at Arsenal. Let's not forget about Dennis Suarez to. Could it be DS 2.0?

What does everyone else think? Ed's too!


{Ed002's Note - It is a strange choice and Arsenal have had better options in mind.}

1.) 22 Jan 2021 10:54:24
I can only assume that these other choices may be looked at in the summer? It does baffle me for sure.

2.) 22 Jan 2021 10:55:01
I’m far from a Dani fan. Can’t understand why we loaned him. He’s not the future and not good enough.

If ESR is going to have competition or sit on sidelines - why would we do it with the kid from Real. It will take the player 12 months to get up to epl standards. Bad idea in my book.

3.) 22 Jan 2021 11:12:50
How did the media not pick up on the Mat Ryan signing? Ed do you think it’s a good signing for arsenal?

{Ed002's Note - He had a very good reputation but Brighton decided some time ago it was not working out - so a loan makes sense in the short-term.}

4.) 22 Jan 2021 11:17:54
FFS you lot, it makes perfect sense. We don’t have the money to sign our long term targets, you all complain when we make rash decisions or take second or 3rd choice players like we did with Pepe because he was on HP terms rather than money up front
ESR cannot play every game and has had injury issues before so needs bringing through slowly
Odegaard has played approaching 30 games last season in la liga so will be a perfect fit without a risky lay out whilst ESR is bedded in as a first team regular
Honestly you lot have to stop moaning it’s depressing and a BANTER site not the Samaritans.

5.) 22 Jan 2021 11:17:34
In my personal opinion I don't think Odeegard will walk into the first XI and take ESR's place - ESR has been fantastic since being integrated into the side, and as SY4 said Odeegard will need some time to adjust to the premier league. But I do think it is important we bring in another CAM/ #10 for rotation. We will have an extremeeely congested fixture list should we make it far in the FA cup and Europa league, and we cannot rely on ESR alone to play in the #10 position. We have seen what we were like playing without a true attacking mid (absolutely awful) and how important that position is to improve our attack. I have no doubt both ESR and Odeegard will get more than enough minutes each rotating, and I doubt that MA would want to stunt ESR's development now after seeing how much he has brought to our team. A good move for all parties involved IMO (provided Odeegard can find the level he did at Real Sociedad)

6.) 22 Jan 2021 14:13:35
Agreed Colney but apparently odegaard won’t come to Arsenal to be used that way, GH said and apparently I’m an idiot ( which is sometimes true I admit)

7.) 22 Jan 2021 14:39:16
337 - why are you an idiot, where did you get that from? You’re normally having a go at me for being a fool. So if you’re an idiot - what am I?

So we agree we need creativity and we need someone capable of supplementing ESR but that can make an immediate impact and get up to epl standards.

I am not sure if another kid is the answer - that’s all.

8.) 22 Jan 2021 23:14:30
Would never call you a fool mate. I’m just always seeing the positives others deal with things the other way, truth is we all want the best for the team we love.



20 Jan 2021 18:16:23
Hello Ed,

I can't find the thread where someone asked about Dele Ali but I know you replied saying that Draxler or Joan Jordan might provide an option.

Previously you mentioned that Brandt was our preferred target. Is this still the case or has our attention moved more towards Draxler and Jordan?

Thank you 😊.


{Ed002's Note - Right now you can scratch Joan Jordan. Draxler and Brandt - interest remains.}

1.) 20 Jan 2021 19:29:27
Brilliant, thanks Ed.

2.) 20 Jan 2021 20:20:07
Hi Ed, Sly Sports are reporting we are interested in Odegaard? You know about any approach? Sky are saying we were already knocked back and have gone back in? Also would this mean we would have to send Dani Ceballos back to Madrid, as i though you could only have one player from a club on loan? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Martin Odegaard (RW/AM) Real Sociedad are keen on taking him on loan and have spoken with Real Madrid. His agent has said that he has had enquiries from two English sides. Why would Arsenal want another RW?}



18 Jan 2021 08:49:49
Good Moring Ed,

Another name in the rumour mill this morning is Ivan Toney. Do you know if there is any interest from Arsenal, whether that be now or in the summer? I can only think he would be seen as replacement for Lacazette if he was to leave in the summer.

Many thanks in advance :)


{Ed002's Note - Ivan Toney (S) The player decided on a move to Brentford in the summer instead of Swansea or Brighton. Celtic also made enquiries. After a very good start to the season he has attracted scouts from a number of Premier League sides including Everton, West Ham, Arsenal, and again Brighton. Brentford have no interest in selling.}

1.) 18 Jan 2021 12:48:33
Cheers Ed :)



08 Jan 2021 18:32:13
Evening Ed,

Reports this evening that West Ham are interested in signing Nketiah. Is there any solid interest at all and would Arsenal be open to selling him?
Personally I would rather sell Eddie if it meant being able to give Balogun more game time.

Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach and West Ham have been actively enquiring after other targets.}

Xhaka has played every single minute of the last 12 games despite the busy fixture list. Fair play to him 👏🏻.




21 Feb 2021 11:59:49
Massive game today! I don't think anything but 3 points is acceptable given the way the table looks right now, regardless of who the opponent is. COYG!


1.) 21 Feb 2021 13:13:43
Maybe it`s just me but City are streets ahead of everyone at the moment! For me as long as we give a performance ( of course I want the win ) I won`t be on here berating us and asking for sackings if we don`t get the only acceptable result of three points! They are quite good you know and we are a work in progress albeit improving COYG.

{Ed047's Note - they have 100% solved their defensive problems of last year and look impressive.

I would just like to see us really involved in the game and giving them something to worry about.

Of course 3 points would be awesome.

2.) 21 Feb 2021 13:28:42
Getting a point today would be a very good result, City are back to thier best and when Peps city are at their best they are a very very formidable force to stop let alone to get the better of.

Beating our chests and sounding out the prematch war cry is all well and good but in reality anything other than defeat would a very good days work and a win today would be fantastic achievement.

3.) 21 Feb 2021 14:06:45
I do like a battle cry

I think we can upset city.

4.) 21 Feb 2021 14:39:01
I think we can also Malaga it’s the knee jerk we’re rubbish MA out etc if we don’t get the expected 👀 3 points that gets me! All for a battle cry! COYG.

5.) 21 Feb 2021 14:58:16
Good for you lads, has there ever been a game where you didn't think know we'd win it before kick off? 😎.

6.) 21 Feb 2021 15:29:27
This is a game where you need realism, a point would be a very good result a win would be out of this world .

A close game and defeat and at least we have put in a shift an absolute thumping then there will be questions

It wouldn’t surprise me if we got a point.

7.) 21 Feb 2021 15:34:21
Strange starting eleven selection today. I'd be amazed if we get any points but fingers crossed! COYG!

8.) 21 Feb 2021 15:44:35
I bet Smith Rowe is a bit miffed at being on the bench.

9.) 21 Feb 2021 16:09:45
Fellows I'm joining this battle cry, as well.

We need to go at them from kick off no sitting back or fear of conceding otherwise we won't see the ball and concede. I'm also feeling comfortable with the back four today.

We have the pace upfront to get the early goals. We go 2-0 up and game over for them.

Battle cry . Come on you Gunners!

10.) 21 Feb 2021 16:11:14
Pepe for Rowe Smith is a huge mistake in my opinion Banbury mate, but time will tell if Arteta is better qualified than me or if he should get out of my office immediately:-)
Big call that, hope it pays dividends.

11.) 21 Feb 2021 19:47:56
Massive poor gamble why do that.

12.) 21 Feb 2021 21:42:04
Shin splints or similar so resting ESR but hey let’s slag off the managers decisions without knowing the full facts! He has shown he prefers ESR to Pepe continually but his plan is to rest the younger players especially when they need it . So not a gamble in my eyes! Could have put Auba out wide Lacazette in middle and Saka right . That’s what we should be asking COYG.



12 Feb 2021 14:25:06
Which Leeds are we going to get this weekend?
We are either going to win 4-3 or get hammered 5-0. Not looking forward to it to be honest!


1.) 12 Feb 2021 16:08:17
Which Leeds? Which Arsenal? Mate

It's got all the hallmarks of being a cracking game but one which is best viewed without the heavy bilurden of expectation, one way or the other.

Adopting the Forest Gump approach to this game would be my advice for both sets of fans on this one.

2.) 12 Feb 2021 16:33:30
No Partey and no Tierney .

3.) 12 Feb 2021 19:02:20
But Luis is available Sally 😎
Just goes to show what you lose on the swings you smacks you round the chops on the roundabouts 🙈.

4.) 13 Feb 2021 00:01:13
I'd say I'm really looking forward to it, seems Leeds don't give you much option than to attack - should be a cracking game!

But those two will be a huge miss, Sally, KT has been immense lately.



06 Feb 2021 14:52:11
We need to find our own identity and our own style of play. It's too predictable trying to be the Arsenal of old and football just doesn't favour those who can't play in more than one way anymore, especially in the Premier League! We have the players and we have some very good ones at that but we seriously need to move away from being a 'nice' team. They're too friendly, not just to opponents but to each other as well! Where's the anger, the frustration, the willingness to lift each other when we make mistakes but also criticise one another when they mess up? Is it Arteta? Is it the attitude of every single player? I'm lost tbh, no idea anymore.


1.) 06 Feb 2021 15:22:27
Gabriel and signs and becomes an ever present, Arsenal go on the worse run in the clubs history and slip down time 16th in the table.

Gabriel gets injured, Arsenal start playing well and winning, climb to 9th place in the league.

Gabriel gets fit and?

Just saying! It's spooky like the Bermuda triangle spooky :-)

{Ed047's Note - maybe if our strikers could some how put the ball in that net thing at each end of the pitch we wouldn’t be concerned about Gabriel who rarely puts a foot wrong 🤷‍♂️

2.) 06 Feb 2021 15:50:51
Agreed Ed, wtf use is willian please people watch the replay after he came on, he’s scared of the ball! He passes it to the corner then does not move an inch to help the player with 2 defenders on him, it’s schoolboy stuff.

{Ed047's Note - he’s an embarrassment to himself and that halfwit Edu who got mugged off into giving him a contract by his mate the football agent! 🤦‍♂️

3.) 06 Feb 2021 15:51:46
I know Ed mate:-) , it's Just one of those crazy stats that on paper shows when Gabriel plays we do worse than we do without him. Obviously it's not his fault as he's a good player but with his and Partey's return we've instantly gone off the boil and are once again lukewarm.

{Ed047's Note - that warm? 😉🤣🤣

4.) 06 Feb 2021 16:17:03
Tepid? :-)

{Ed047's Note - that’s more like it! 🤣



02 Feb 2021 18:52:55
I don't ever want to see a post suggesting that David Luiz has been good for us ever again! He's been dog**** since he arrived. The guy is an absolute calamity and will that will cost us this game! Nice one.


1.) 02 Feb 2021 19:23:25
Totally agree, I don’t get how people say he’s been solid, holding has been working twice as hard to counter his mistakes, I’m so annoyed, this guy is stealing a living at CB.

2.) 02 Feb 2021 19:24:40
And xhaka isn’t far behind him, I’m sorry they are both liabilities.

To be honest Shaq it's hard to disagree with that point. We were clearly the better team in both legs and played some lovely football going forward but individual errors made it difficult. There was absolutely nothing that Mikel could of done to avoid those errors and the tie would of been 4-0 with nobody complaining.

337, wrong. His agent wants him to leave, he wants to stay. He's class and he deserves his moment over Eddie end of story. If he leaves it's another huge mistake. So thanks but no thanks 👍🏻.

Nope but it seems like it's going to be a while whatever it is. Doesn't sound great but hopefully everything is okay. Maybe it's time to let Balogun play step up in the first team 👀.

Yet you have heard of Odegaard and that signing makes perfect sense? Matt Ryan has been solid for Brighton and is a great loan signing for us. He is a shotstopper and very comfortable with the ball at his feet. I'm actually quite impressed that we made a sensible signing for once.

Tbf I'm going to stand up for Xhaka. He's been one of our best players this season. He was one of the only players yesterday to make direct, piercing forward passes and other a silly tackle here and there he did good.

Head up mate and never explain yourself to anyone. You do you and follow the club how you see fit. None of us are enjoying watching the shambles at Arsenal at the minute and we all react to it differently It makes it worse with CV because football for many people is the only joy they have in their week right now so for an Arsenal fan it must be adding to the frustration! haha. I hope you're doing well mate and fingers crossed we can all post something positive tomorrow when we're back on the right track. COYG :)

VAR itself isn't the problem, it's how it's used and the people using it that make it a complete sham. When you throw in a few extra stupid rules like 'is the armpit hair is offside' and 'are his fingers in a natural position' then it's bound to cause controversy. I'm still going to back VAR though. If its used properly and some common sense is brought back to the game then I think it could work really well.

Holding hasn't done it on numerous occasions costing us plenty of points so no, it wouldn't be the same. That's obvious 🥱😂.

Oh I agree with you mate. I hope that's one of his last games for us in all honesty. Unless someone gets injured there's no way he gets back in the team over Gabriel and Holding now, especially when Mari comes back too. Tenner he plays against Benfica after being benched for a bit and he does the same thing 😂.
