The Telegraph are reporting that Ex-Arsenal trio Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp are working with Spotify founder Daniel Ek on a formal takeover bid for Arsenal FC.

I imagine that this is just clickbait media rubbish but I would love to see an official offer made to KSE.


1.) 26 Apr 2021 09:47:35
Ed002 will probably have great knowledge on this. Hi Ed, any idea of the post from Glenn is true mate? If there’s anything real truth to this? Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - I not providing information to the Arsenal page any longer.}

2.) 26 Apr 2021 09:58:08
No not this again. I don’t even know why people abuse you (if that’s what happened) . Ed if the takeover is true then don’t reply to this post :)

3.) 26 Apr 2021 10:50:35
Sly Sports are also reporting this. Although it would be brilliant i'm not sure they will have the money to complete and then compete.

4.) 26 Apr 2021 12:09:47
I don't see it going anywhere Gunner but who knows. I would rather have an owner who loves the club as much as the fans than stick with KSE. Fair point about complete and compete though.

5.) 26 Apr 2021 16:01:16
ED002, thanks for your contributions over the years.

6.) 26 Apr 2021 17:03:44
I don’t know Glenn, i don’t think it would be as public if there was nothing to it. AFTV 🤣 have released a video, and ‘Don Robbie’ has it on good authority apparently that there is a real interest. You are right though, i'd much rather have someone interested in the sport and Arsenal, than KSE.

7.) 26 Apr 2021 18:16:23
I just hope the kronke accepts, but seriously i don't think they will we need to unite and push these Fkers out.

8.) 26 Apr 2021 18:52:04
It's gaining momentum with every hour but Kroenke is standing firm that the club isn't for sale. Let's see the offer go in and we'll see 👀.

9.) 27 Apr 2021 22:09:00
If there Ed's arbt commenting for arsenal no more what's the point in this page loads of small minded pricks given Ed's a hard time have ruined it for the rest if us.



22 Jan 2021 11:28:45
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 :)

MA must be fearing for his job now. Such a poor season all round. I really liked his energy and passion to make a change at Arsenal when he arrived but the football is poor and lacklustre and doesn't deserve another season. I feel so bad for Saka, ESR and the other young players who have tried so hard this season, Laca included with his good contribution up top. Let's see what happens in the summer. Make a change now and let a new manager have a summer with the squad imo.

29 Apr 2021 10:45:53
I have a strange feeling that Willian is going to start tonight and will score his 1st Arsenal goal. He'll get an assist too.

I have no idea where that has come from but when you know you know, you know? haha.

Lets go out and put on a performance tonight! COYG!




26 Apr 2021 14:21:06
ITV News understands an official announcement of a £1.8bn takeover attempt of the north London club could come soon.

Watch this space. Ornstein reckons it's going nowhere though.


1.) 26 Apr 2021 14:38:14
It's going to be an interesting couple of months. The current owners are always going to say the club isn't for sale as saying it was would devalue it.

2.) 26 Apr 2021 14:46:00
100% mate!

3.) 26 Apr 2021 15:08:01
It's the closest thing we've had so far so it's can't be bad news that's for sure

The make pretend league was going to be for a fixed term 23 year contract, can Uafa not get all clubs who wish to play in the champions league and Europe league next season or at any point in the next 25 years to sign a contract stating they will not to participate in any competition without first grtting the agreement of both Uafa and the government of their country before hand.

Stan won't wait 25 years to get what he wants I'm sure.

4.) 26 Apr 2021 16:17:04
As I understood it Gunner, there's already a clause which said before clubs could join any other competition they would have to have it approved by UEFA First, and the clubs ignored it.

5.) 26 Apr 2021 16:56:17
The bid might happen but I’m hugely confident it will be put in the bin.

6.) 26 Apr 2021 17:12:06
Thanks for the answer Jim mate.

To my mind Uafa strengthing it's rules and penalties for breaches of contract wouid be the way forward and I think Chelsea and City owners would back it publicly so as to reinforce it's apologies to their supporters, which would in turn heap more pressure on the major rebel clubs.

I don't think it's wise to let these owners have time to recover from last amd keeping the pressure on while their on the back foot is the best strategy.



25 Apr 2021 13:31:37
I've seen various posts about replacements for Mikel Arteta.

Here's my 3!

1. Nagelsmann - I highly doubt he would join us and I think he'll end up at Munich at some stage.

2. Ralph Hasenhuttl - More realistic choice and I really like his game. Full of energy, a good press and some attractive attacking football.

3. Graham Potter - I've mentioned him a few times and a number of the Eds have had high praise for him too. He likes to play possession football and move the ball the quickly. Could it be too much a step up though for him though?

3 realistic candidates though in my opinion. Allegri would be phenomenal but I can't see that happening.



1.) 25 Apr 2021 16:12:36
Obviously if you had a free choice eirher Nagelesmann or Allegri would do nicely.

Hasenhut and Potter both have experience Artera doesn't as does Nuno but in an ideal world we would get someone who has a, been there done done pedigree.

2.) 25 Apr 2021 16:37:51
These managers are all free:
Lucien Favre
Eddie Howe
Marco Silva
Leonardo Jardin
Bruno Lage

I remember Eddie Howe being touted as a possible successor to Arsene. Would he be worth a punt?

3.) 25 Apr 2021 16:39:47
Ps I haven't included a certain gentleman named Jose.

4.) 25 Apr 2021 16:50:37
Jose wasn't for us pre Spurs Sally, as much as we all appropriate what he did for us while at Spurs I don't think his association with them has improved his Arsenal acceptance levels much 😃

I actually don't mind Jose, away from football I think he's actually a decent man but put him at any football club and he immediately becomes toxic as a character.

If it was a choice between Jose and Christopher Biggins I'd welcome Biggins with open arms 🤗.

5.) 25 Apr 2021 17:09:45
Haha I put his name as a joke Gunner, I can't think of any good reason to want park the bus footie!

6.) 25 Apr 2021 17:49:24
:-) I guessed as much Sally, after the drama of last week and narrowly avoiding the pantomime leage the thought of Jose looming this week would be to much without a period of recovery in between 😀.

7.) 25 Apr 2021 18:25:56
Potter, I’m from Swansea amd all the swans fans slag him off and want somone new so he’s nowhere near good enough for us sorry.

{Ed001's Note - Potter hasn't been at Swansea for years, so I have no idea what you are talking about.}

8.) 25 Apr 2021 18:43:10
To be honest Sally, only Allegri sticks out to me from the that list and that won't happen.
I can see the appeal with Eddie Howe but I think we need someone with real grit and a no nonsense attitude.
Graham Potter and Eddie Howe don't have that way about them. I can see players with big ego's being even harder to manage. Arteta has it and I love to see it but he's not getting performances back from the players. Maybe something will click next season, who knows 🤷🏻‍♂️
Lucien Farve may actually be a choice that would work in the immediate term but I do think someone slightly younger could be brought in.
I'm on the fence with Nuno. I don't know why but sometimes when you're not quite feeling it, it's hard to be convinced 😂.

9.) 25 Apr 2021 19:15:59
Welsh, Potter has been at Brighton for 2 years next month 😂.

10.) 25 Apr 2021 19:11:53
Ed 1 I never said years? Every swans fans I know have gone off him.

{Ed001's Note - yes, because he left them years ago after a short period in charge, to take over at Brighton.}

11.) 25 Apr 2021 19:23:28
As Richard Attenborough would say Glen

" and here we have the lesser spotted Mikel Arteta, perfectly at home in his natural habitat of 10th place in the premier league "

" the Mikel Arteta seldom strays far from its natural environment and is easily distinguished from other Artetas by its unique plumage, and is better known as the Lego Crowned Arteta in some parts of the world "


12.) 25 Apr 2021 21:07:09
Brighton have been so unlucky, they dominate most games, just are so bad at finishing which Potter can't be blamed for. I remember reading an article in January on expected goals, on how the table would look if teams scored their expected goals or conceded their expected goals and they would of been 5th, I know that doesn't show the whole picture and football doesn't work like that, but it does show that his style creates lots of chances and restricts opponents opportunities, but in the big moments at both ends of the pitch they are just rubbish! Which with better players he might do great things.

13.) 25 Apr 2021 21:05:25
Absolutely no manager anywhere and probably at anytime in history has served an apprenticeship like Graham Potter.
I'm not saying he should be our next manager but the bloke has earned everything he's got from football and hasn't been given anything on a playe at any stage of his career.

Gerrard Rooney Arteta Lampard and plenty of others have been afforded privileges because of their playing careers but Potter has definitely done it the hard way, that's for sure.

14.) 26 Apr 2021 07:47:44
Wrong person that’s how much I follow the swans hahahahbit he’s still not good enough lol.

15.) 26 Apr 2021 07:49:11
Hahahaha Welsh 😅.

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 👀.

Bro Max Allegri isn't interested in what little we have to offer. Don't get me wrong I'd love Allegri but we all need to look past him. He's not been in management for a while granted so maybe we could try and tempt him but I really can't see that happening. This is Arsenal we're talking about, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if Eddie Howe gets the job 🤦🏻‍♂️.

Wilf - it's been widely reported that the consortium have the funds available and a 1.8b offer will be made in the coming days. They will care when the fans are protesting every week and calling for their heads. I can see it happening, maybe just not as quick as we want it too. Ek is due to speak to the media at 14.50 BST tomorrow about the offer 👍🏻.

27 Apr 2021 20:26:18
I really hope not. Money talks though and the reports state that Ek and the 3 ex-players were fully expecting that response and will continue with their plans of making a bid. As the offers come in, the fans will speak out more and more over the dislike of the owners and when they realise that they'll never be forgiven, accepted or liked by the fans, they will sell 👍🏻.
