Evening Eds,
Various reports claiming that Juventus and Atletico are both interested in signing Lacazette and that players could be used in a potential swap. Do you what players Juve could be potentially interested in using as part of a deal? As far as Atletico are concerned I would only really want Partey to be honest.
Many thanks.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - I have addressed Atletico’s interest before but he is not first choice. I would not expect anything with Juve, he is well down their list.}

Hi Glen when's the new job start mate?


2.) 09 Jul 2020 09:43:38
Ed whenever you have the time would be able to provide us with an updated list of potential incomings and outgoings please?

{Ed002's Note - Remind me in a few days please.}


3.) 09 Jul 2020 10:57:05
Fine by me, thanks Ed.

Monday Gunner mate what about yourself?


5.) 09 Jul 2020 11:53:24
Looks like everyone's starting new this month, I just accepted a PhD offer myself, funny enough. Best of luck on day 1 Glen.

Still waiting on DBS and references before I get a start date Glen mate. Good luck for Monday mate.


8.) 09 Jul 2020 16:59:34

Hello Eds,
There are some reports surfacing of interest from Arsenal in Wout Weghorst from Wolfsburg. Is he a player that we are keen to bring in?
Many thanks.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know but he would be an odd choice. He is an old fashioned CF and I assume a Lacazette replacement. He was considered by West Ham as the Andy Carroll replacement before they opted for Heller. He is not particularly mobile so I doubt he would suit Arsenal. I will try and check.}


1.) 30 Jun 2020 15:23:08
I can see this happening if laca goes. Relatively cheap at £30ish m
Strong character, more mobile and quicker than you think, good at linking play and finishing. Similar profile to vardy and giroud and very determined. Could be a success if he did come.


2.) 30 Jun 2020 16:19:54
6 foot 7 great workrate and presses really intelligently from CF. More than just a target man 🙂.


3.) 30 Jun 2020 17:34:59
Thanks Ed that's brilliant.

Kcider, he's like the next Peter Crouch! Like Ed said he's a very old fashioned centre forward which maybe teams like West Ham and Burnley would consider for their style of play. Do we need a slow target man? It would be interesting to see but I can't see that being Arteta's vision for a ST either if I'm honest.

Morning Eds,
Is there any truth in the media reports that Arsenal are trying to work on a deal for Dominik Szoboszlai?
Many thanks.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - Dominik Szoboszlai (LM/CM) Ralf Rangnick will look to take him to Milan but RBS will not be happy, Milan has serious financial issues and the club may not be as keen as the new coach. PSG have permission to talk with the player and Lazio have a declared interest and at the right price RBS could take the money. The likes of Inter, Dortmund and Fiorentina have scouted him but it has gone no further.}


1.) 27 Jun 2020 10:18:46
Brilliant cheers Ed. Do you expect Torreira to still to look to move away from Arsenal this summer? If he, Guendouzi, Auba and Mkhi are all sold then we should raise a good amount of funds to rebuild.

{Ed002's Note - He is down the list of Milan, so it is unlikely he will leave as it stands.}


2.) 27 Jun 2020 10:36:46
Ok that's good. Arteta hasn't really been able to use him properly yet so if he can stay fit I think he'll play well under his management. Do you forsee just a few, or a lot more outgoings at Arsenal this summer? Thanks again, appreciate it.


3.) 27 Jun 2020 11:35:28
Kocku has signed an extension on his contract, does that mean arsenal can strike him off the list knowing that Feyenoord will probably look for big money for him?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, scratch him.}


4.) 27 Jun 2020 18:03:31
Thanks Ed. I’m assuming arsenal are only going to sign a replacement for Ozil when he eventually leaves, not before.


5.) 28 Jun 2020 01:35:41
Ed thong you can share even more light on guadozi situation. He does look quite distributive in Training videos I've seen. How much you reckon Arsenal could get for him this summer? Which the financial train. Maybe a season or 2 loan out? Arsenal might be in a better place by then.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed from what I said a few days ago. I cannot get at price but if Spanish or Italian sides bite then they will want to trade players.}


6.) 28 Jun 2020 17:32:34
Hey Ed,
Great info coming from you guys, it’s much appreciated.
Is there any truth at all in the rumours circulating about a swap involving Guendouzi and Partey? I’d assume we’d still have to pay a fee but I’m just wondering what your take is.

{Ed002's Note - His representatives have been offering him around the major clubs and could well look to Atletico but the questions would be (a) money is tight in Spain and Atletico would prefer cash; (b) would TP be interested in moving to a club not in the Champions League?


7.) 28 Jun 2020 18:04:51
This kid is somthing special.


8.) 28 Jun 2020 19:09:08
Thanks Ed. Appreciate it.
@welshgunner, personally I don’t see it mate.

Granted he is still very young and still developing, but I just don’t see what his strengths really are. He is not and will never be a goal scoring midfielder. He is not creative, he does not draw opposition out of position to free up team mates and he is not incisive or attack minded with his passing. He cannot for the life of him head the ball.

He has very poor upper body strength and relies on drawing, often generous, fouls to get him out of trouble in personal duels.
He is not a box to box or what you would consider a dynamic powerful midfield player. He’s often casual and seems one paced.
He isn’t aaggressive or a tackler but more of a presser.

Occasionally he can intercept and do well in stand up dispossessions and he is good at managing and increasing the tempo of a game, or maybe it just looks like it because he plays alongside Xhaka.

For the pros he is enthusiastic and energetic but very casual and doesn’t smell danger until it’s breathing on him.

He could go in to be a very good player in the right team under the right coach and, critically, if he can find the attitude and temperament required to keep his emotions in check, but as iv said, for me I’m very very curious of how he has managed to obtain such a high opinion from so many whilst, realistically, not really proving himself strong at any one facet of midfield play, and certainly not consistently, in a mediocre side where it wouldn’t be hard at all to stand out if you were indeed as good as the hype that surrounds you.

For me, he’s certainly not what’s required right now for this current Arsenal set up to improve as required. Cash in on the hype and invest in a powerful dynamic midfielder who’ll want to prove himself and play for the shirt.

I’d be amazed if Guendouzi goes on the get 20 caps for France at senior level.

He is frequently losing the ball cheaply in the wrong positions. perfect arsenal player in truth. There's some potential, sure, but I really don't see him making it.


 

 

13 Jun 2020 17:39:19
Where on earth and from what source does the media get these crazy stories about signings? The Daily Mail and Tuttosport in Italy are claiming that RB Leipzig have reportedly informed AC Milan that Arsenal are set to win the race to sign defender Dayot Upamecano. The report claims that Gunners chiefs have 'snatched an agreement' with the German side and that the 21 year old is set to make a move to Mikel Arteta's side.
We can only dream I suppose and have to lose a handful of CBs first 😂.

Glenn1308

Throw enough darts you're bound to hit the bullseye eh 😂.


3.) 15 Jun 2020 11:14:10
Where from Glen? Their imagination mate! " how can I attract more hits and earn more money from Arsenal fans?
" Martinelli and Saka to be sold, as Arsenal look to raise funds to extend and improve Mesut Ozils contract "

That should guarantee you a few million hits from outraged and angry Arsenal fans :-)


 

 

30 May 2020 17:22:06
Hello Eds,
Are Arsenal expecting Lacazette to leave this summer? Sky have stated that we are monitoring Moussa Dembele at Lyon with Inter interested in Lacazette, although he isn't keen on a moce to Italy himself.
Is there much truth in this? I know you've previously stated that he's more settled now but obvisouly we need to sell to fund further transfers.
Many thanks.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - Alexandre Lacazette (S) wanted a new start elsewhere but seemed to have settled before the season was halted. Atletico Madrid are keen but he is very much a Plan B for them. Inter made a general equiry but he is way down their list as they look for two strikers. I suspect he will stay.}


1.) 30 May 2020 18:01:43
Thanks Ed. With Auba looking more likely to leave I would rather us keep him 👍🏻 with a stronger central midfield he won't need to come so deep. That's if we get a stronger medfield 😂.


2.) 31 May 2020 11:36:19
Ed did it really cost arsenal a huge amount of money to bring David Luiz to arsenal? Like including all the agent fees etc? Was it a stupid signing?

{Ed002's Note - Yes. Raul Sanllehi oversaw the purchases of David Luiz and Nicolas Pepe for outrageous sums. We have been through all of this.}


3.) 31 May 2020 11:58:20
Thanks Ed. I knew about Pepe being stupid not Luiz. That’s scandalous mate come on!


4.) 31 May 2020 17:06:35
Ed I’ve got a question. I’m not sure who does the negotiations at arsenal but I think it’s Raul Sanellhi. Before he came to arsenal it was said he’s respected and great at his job. Is this all really true?

{Ed002's Note - No you misunderstand.}

Gabriel Magalhaes set to choose between Everton and Napoli this week but has been made aware of a late bid from an unnamed Premier league club in the region of 22m. Someone's getting a good deal but I'm sure it won't be us with the amount of CBs we have.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - It is not Arsenal and it is not a simple choice between Napoli and Everton.}


 

 

02 Jul 2020 08:23:19
For me it's starting to feel like Auba will sign a new contract and that Laca will be the one to leave. I can't really say I'd be disappointed with that either tbh because we needs Aubameyang's goals just as much as we need to raise funds for potentially Partey and now a hint at Dani Ceballos staying put? We'll see 👀.

Glenn1308

1.) 02 Jul 2020 11:19:05
Maybe a swap for partey.


2.) 02 Jul 2020 13:20:39
I agree Welsh be a good deal that . There, we can agree COYG.


 

 

28 Jun 2020 08:43:59
Today will be the 1st game that I've not been able to watch in 12 years 😞 fingers crossed I can go back to Monday-Friday ASAP!
Let's hope we put in a solid performance today and come away with the win. COYG!

Glenn1308

 

 

25 Jun 2020 08:07:40
Ozil needs to start. Saka on the left, Pepe on the right and Auba through the middle. To be honest, I don't think it matters what you put in behind that we're still screwed. Tierney being the only exception to criticism because he's actually good. As for the rest, he we go again people prepare yourself 😂.

Glenn1308

1.) 25 Jun 2020 09:36:55
Hi Glenn,

A chelsea fan here. You have a proper team. May not be great but definitely better. But unfortunately many times positional usage is not handled correctly by your managers. E. g. David Luiz and Torreira in middle would be great. But mostly you guys play xhaka and someone which takes off the balance. Similarly playing Luiz in a back 2 is invitation for disaster. I hope Arteta figures out best position for each player and that would make you stronger. You still need lot of improvements but it's not gloom and doom as stated in the page many times.


2.) 25 Jun 2020 09:54:06
Mikel will do what Mikel chooses and that's fine because that's his job, while it's our job to let Mikel know if we are happy or unhappy with what he serves us up.
He has pretty much a free pass this season but next season is definitely time for him to prove he's capable making us happier than Emery was and if not then what's the point of keeping him?
He doesn't have to make us great next season but he does have to make us better than we are now or were under Emery.


3.) 25 Jun 2020 13:34:12
Fair comments MadBlue. I think what Arsenal fans are craving right now is exerting some authority over midfield and making us hard to beat again, been a very long time since we controlled the middle of the park. Maybe not since the Cazorla/ Coquelin days. Good luck against City, should be a good game.


4.) 25 Jun 2020 13:50:52
The Le Coq Caz combination worked so well Wire mate, I was disappointed Arsene didn't replace Caz with a new Caz type partner for Le Coq rather than replace Le Coq with Xhaka.
Coquelin used break up so much opposition play before it could get going and get at our defence.


5.) 26 Jun 2020 02:46:51
Absolutely g62, to be fair to Wenger I think he believed Xhaka could become that player, but hindsight is 20/ 20 obviously. I'm sure everyone will agree that we hope Torreira can still become that player, needs a chance to shine.

{Ed0666's Note - I think Torreira’s head is in Italy wire


 

 

23 Jun 2020 07:25:02
Joe Hart shouldn't even be considered. We have an excellent and very promising youth prospect that is training with the 1st team and Martinez will never cut it as an Arsenal goalkeeper. Arthur Okonkwo should be given a few games towards the end of the season to show what he's capable of. He's 6ft 4", a good shot stopper and doesn't look bad with his feet either. We go on about money so much and how we keep making poor decisions, why not use the Hale End academy at a time where we need it the most 🤷🏻‍♂️.

If you look at Mustafi since Arteta took ever he's actually been one of our stand out performers! When I think back to everything since he joined its been a complete shambles but lately he's just starting to price us wrong. We'll see what today brings haha.

There's no doubting he's got talent but he hasn't done anything to warrant that move that's all. He's 20 so working hard to gain vital experience for another 1 or even 2 seasons, whilst keeping your mouth shut and your attitude fully focused on being successful isn't wasting your career whether that be at Arsenal or Norwich. I liked him up until recently but I'd rather see him leave now.

I've accepted it Gunner mate for sure. That only applies to certain players though in my opinion. What's Guendouzi done to even suggest that he's ready and deserving of moving on already to play champions league football? It's not like he's lit the world up or had the impacts of Sancho/ Foden has he? For that reason I don't think we're a stepping stone in this case, it's more ignorance and a bad ego in his case. I hope he ends up playing mid-table foreign football with his attitude 😂.

We don't want or need any players who think they're better than the club. Guendouzi is clearly the sort of player who thinks it should be handed to him on a plate rather than fight to reach the highest level. His attitude towards training and also during matches has been questioned on numerous occasions so good riddens! If this was Aubameyang than okay, he's proved his worth and he's 31 so perhaps he doesn't see personal achievements being accomplished any time soon with Arsenal but it isn't. If it was Mbappe who's clearly an unbelievable footballer than you could perhaps accept it again but it isn't! Sell him 👋🏻.
