Hello eds, hope you're all well and safe! Just wanted to know your opinions on Kokcu. Havent really seen or heard much about him so would be great to hear how you rate him.
Also, does it still stand that we will only go after him if we shift ozil or will we regardless



{Ed002's Note - Arsenal will look to buy him and will continue to try and find a way to move Oezil on. The player is well thought of in the Netherlands and there is interest from Spain.}

1.) 20 May 2020 11:09:42
Ed when you have the time would we have a list of ins and outs at arsenal this season (only if there are any updates or changes) . Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}

2.) 20 May 2020 11:52:11
Cheers ed!

Hi Eds,
Any word on our potential link with Herrera. Personally think it would be a great buy


{Ed002's Note - I am sorry, I know nothing of it.}

1.) 28 Mar 2019 14:01:36
Hello ed, there’s been so much links to David Alaba. I know it’s far-fetched but are we interested?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest being shown by Arsenal at this time, but there have been talks with another side about him.}

2.) 28 Mar 2019 21:01:10
Ed I promise I’m not just saying random names but what about Samuel Umtiti. Interest from arsenal?

{Ed002's Note - Samuel Umtiti (CB) - decision is that he is not up to scratch - to be sold. I am not aware of Arsenal knocking on the door.}

3.) 29 Mar 2019 07:27:25
Interesting that we're not in for Umtiti. Ball playing defender with a history of brain farts? We're usually all over that. My guess is that he'll end up at Chelsea.

{Ed001's Note - he is not a ball playing defender, that is the problem he is having at Barca. He tries to be one, which is what goes wrong.}

4.) 30 Mar 2019 04:10:42
If you're playing at Barca, is it not necessary that you be good with the ball, Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - which is why Umtiti has been deemed not up to scratch mate. They don't think he is good enough.}

Hi ed002

Judging by your sharkopod, i'm assuming that our transfer business is wrapped up this window. Reports saying that we are interested in kingsly coman, but can you see another winger coming in?



{Ed002's Note - I explained that Arsenal have been looking for a winger and I don't recall saying business is done. I would not hold your breath over any move for Kingsley Coman - Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben are coming to the end of their careers at the highest level and he is certainly not on the list of players Bayern have informed that can leave this summer.}

1.) 19 Jul 2018 13:34:32
Great, thanks for the quick reply!

2.) 19 Jul 2018 18:32:17
Ed02, i would imagine ins will depend on outs, is that right.

{Ed002's Note - Try the Sharkopods.}

3.) 19 Jul 2018 19:26:36
I did ed and very good it is too.



25 Jun 2017 23:35:08
Hi eds, got any news on the Martial link? Any truth behind it? Would be good for us



{Ed001's Note - I don't know what link you are talking about. Sorry.}



09 Mar 2017 00:17:27
Sky saying Ox wants out. Just when he was starting to play well.


1.) 09 Mar 2017 10:40:55
Yes and it beggars belief that we have let the following players contracts run down to little over a year;

There are possibly others.

2.) 09 Mar 2017 11:28:33
Fishy isn't it.

3.) 09 Mar 2017 13:06:53
Santi as well. Something is weird there. Then again who handles these contracts? Doubts it's arsene who sits there and handles them.

4.) 10 Mar 2017 12:15:48
Ox has been average for a long time now, has a few games a season where he plays well then slips back into mediocrity. Could honestly been 6 players from current squad maybe more, they're just not up to it.

Hi eds,
Was wondering if you knew anything about Ozil's contract situation? Is it looking likely that he will sign a new contract? Same goes for Jack. Both playing well!



{Ed002's Note - I try and avoid everything about contracts - they are not of interest. However, if Arsenal make a stupid offer Oezil may agree another contract. I can't help about JW}



21 Jun 2017 13:05:11
Welbeck given Number 7 shirt at the store. Thanks for the good times Alexis.


1.) 21 Jun 2017 14:41:27
Another example of media spinning things and people being gullible. It doesn't mean he's leaving. Granted he probably will but this indicates nothing. At the top of that very same list was alexis with the number 7. They wouldn't have advertised both if he was 100% leaving.

2.) 21 Jun 2017 17:42:13
You can't buy a Wilshere 10 shirt, what do you think about that Sanogo?

3.) 21 Jun 2017 18:39:47
I'm having trouble getting this season Benzema shirt too, I've had not problem the last 5 seasons, I've had to settle for an Higuain home and away for this season :- ( what ever is going on?

4.) 21 Jun 2017 18:48:44
Ffs stoner it was going to be my one saving grace mate. Get his number on my back every year. In an ideal world we make signings that we need and Jackie boi comes back and does the business for the gooners. i love anyone who bleeds arsenal mate.

5.) 22 Jun 2017 07:09:56
Sanogo it would be fantastic if that happened and having been a huge fan of his nothing would please me more.

Sadly the games I watched him play for Bournemouth he looked a total shadow of the player I believed he was going to be.

6.) 22 Jun 2017 18:51:13
I don't believe it stoner the guy looks like a world beater. And no I'm not taking these rose tinted specs off.

7.) 22 Jun 2017 19:40:06
OMG Stoner! You just said something negative about Jack! You think you can just speak about his shadow without repercussions? Now Sonogo is going to have to keel you! Was nice knowing you mate.

8.) 22 Jun 2017 22:12:21
Jesus Sharpie, I thought I'd got away with it but you've just stoked his fire. I'm leaving the country A-sap! 😂.



15 Jun 2016 00:09:06
Don't see why we don't go in for Lacazette. PSG, Tottenham and West Ham are all showing interest as far as i am aware. Does Wenger not rate him?

Thanks Eds.


{Ed091's Note - ill text him and ask.

1.) 15 Jun 2016 12:51:36
Few times I've seen him live he's looked pants.

Anyone notice who's been starting up front for France? ;-)

2.) 15 Jun 2016 13:40:28
Did he reply ed091 :p.

{Ed091's Note - he says he rates them all as equal, like his children.



08 Jun 2016 20:52:20
Hi eds, hearing that we recently put in a bid for Mahrez. Bit of a longshot I know, but any truth in it?




09 Jan 2016 09:35:46
Hi Eds,
Just reading all this stuff about pep would be a perfect fit for us. Say Wenger does win the league, would him going upstairs and pep coming in be a possibility or is it just between City, united and chelsea for his signature?



1.) 09 Jan 2016 10:00:17
If Wenger were to leave at the end of his current contract in 2017, I do not believe he will consider moving upstairs. Assuming his health holds, I believe he may, if offered take another club job abroad, possibly at PSG and then manage the French national team. As Wenger keeps himself fit and loves the day to day work running a club side, I could see him managing at club level until his mid-70's. Don't rule out an extension of his current deal at Arsenal. He is taking the club into a new era, with 2 FA Cup wins and a serious Premier League challenge this season. Imagine he were to win the Premier League this season and follow that up with a successful 2016-2017 season, would he want to leave without winning the Champions League, assuming he has a squad capable of challenging?

{Ed025's Note - its called going out at the top RG, SAF did the same mate..

2.) 09 Jan 2016 13:09:58
I may be proved wrong, but I don't think Wenger would depart as a desire to go out at the top. He has stated that assuming his health holds, he would depart when he believes he has taken the club as far as he can. I also believe, he was wounded by the fans turning on him, as well as the possibility that now his marriage has broken down and his daughter has grown up, he may have other reasons, possibly a new partner, to be in France.

3.) 09 Jan 2016 13:51:13
Rg69, he will be offered a role uostairs. He might or might not take it. But as for moving abroad full time, no he wont. He's lived in the same part of London going to the same restaurants and seeing his same local friends for 20 years practically. He's settled. At most he'll take the France national job because that is practically part time. But I know for a fact he's settled where he is.

Sky saying that West Ham want him. Personally think its a good move. He would do alright for them and not sure he would be happy if we bought in Lacazette (mbappe just ain't happening) .
Definitely want to see the back of Theo but i know he's one of those players that will go somewhere else and start banging in the goals, especially against us.

Na can't see sanchez signing for us. What i don't get is that Sanchez will have to compete with Aguero and Jesus up top. In the wing positions, sanchez would be competing with Sterling, Bernando silva and Sane. If he were to stay at Arsenal he would be the main man for us but it doesn't seem like he wants this. Not sure what this fascination with Champions League is as i cannot see Man City winning it. If its for the mere fact of the pull of quality players, eds have already said that this shouldn't be too much of a hinderence and i think they're right. I think its just that Sanchez was promised some big signings and that just hasn't happened. I would be very surprised if we brought any big names again this window but would like to be pleasently suprised.

Doubt it. Apparently Barcelona seem insistent on Alumni/ with ties to the club.
