Hello Ed002, Do you know of Arsenal have shown any interest in signing Gundagon from City as he's got only 12 months remaining on his contract. What are Arsenal's preferred midfield targets now that Europa seems likely. Thanks a lot in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Ilkay Gundogan (CM/DM) No discussiona about a new contract and could leave in the summer. Barcelona could add him to their list of economically viable options. I am not aware of any approach from Arsenal.
Looking at the list of midfield players we know Arsenal have been interested in, many can now be discounted with no Champions League.}

1.) 20 May 2022 13:53:52
Whoah Whoah Whoah Ed002,

I absolutely love your work and respect everything you say, but let's not discount arsenal just yet (HAHA) , we all know Tottenham have another "SPURSEY" moment in them and we can grab champions league qualification on Sunday.

ED002 I understand entirely if you don't want to post this nonsense from me, but I am as always, ever the optimist. if a little deluded as well.

2.) 22 May 2022 21:13:04
Having no champions league won’t effect who Arsenal target. The myth that top players only want champions league is absolute nonsense! If arsenal want someone they will get them.

3.) 23 May 2022 16:59:47
Its not though is it ? and we've failed to get plenty of players, just in the last window we went all out for Vlahovic and didn't get him.

4.) 23 May 2022 18:41:05
It’s not what? Players don’t care about champions league football. Arsenal are a massive club in London with a huge pull. Vlahovic was nothing to do with champions league football. He always wanted Juve. Jesus will be a huge signing for us and he doesn’t care about champs league football.

{Ed002's Note - players care a great deal about playing at the highest level. As do the supporters of most clubs. It is embarrassing for the other supporters to read BS like this.}

5.) 23 May 2022 20:23:14
Of course we want our clubs to play in the champs league but it’s BS to suggest that top players only want champs league. Money talks. I can guarantee Arsenals targets haven’t changed since missing out on CL.



19 Apr 2022 22:16:08
Hello Ed002, Do you know if Arsenal are interested in Edon Zhegrova?


{Ed002's Note - He moved to Lille 3 months ago.}



06 Apr 2022 20:49:01
Hello Ed002, Do Arsenal have any interest in Depay?


{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware. He will move in the summer, but I don't know of any efforts of Arsenal.}

1.) 06 Apr 2022 21:19:53
Thanks for the quick response, Have a good evening.

{Ed002's Note - And you.}

2.) 10 Apr 2022 07:47:44
Better off trying to sign Dopey not (Depay) in the hope that he brings the other 6 dwarfs with him to strengthen up this dismal squad we have at the moment.



31 Jan 2022 09:57:13
It appears that Auba is close to joining Barcelona on loan, Do you see this happening Ed002?

In that case, Raul De Tomas is tipped to join us, Any truth in those rumours?

Thanks for all your work throughout the window.



1.) 31 Jan 2022 16:07:19
Looks to. Be off now.

2.) 31 Jan 2022 17:41:28
Gonna be interesting in the dressing room now!



19 Jan 2022 15:41:50
Hi Ed002, any truth in Al-Nassr bidding for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyangadingdong for a loan with obligation to buy for 9.5 mill?

Also, if this goes through does that mean we would push to sign a striker in January or its unrelated?

This will clear things for a lot of us I guess. Thanks as always.



{Ed002's Note - It won't make a difference to whether or not Arsenal are able to sign a forward this month.}

1.) 19 Jan 2022 16:06:22
Apologies, but is it true that Al-Nassr are interested in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyangadingdong?

{Ed002's Note - They have proposed a loan.}

2.) 19 Jan 2022 16:55:29
Would Auba be open for such a move ed? I thought he would try to move to a top club in europe or in the worst situation run down his contract.

{Ed002's Note - financially it would be attractive. Spending the tail end of a career at one of the clubs like Inter or Manchester United may be a it hit and miss. Going to a high profile side like Barcelona or PSG means less playing time. He needs to think carefully.}

3.) 19 Jan 2022 18:09:49
Honestly, it looks to be a nice escape for us from the 350k weekly, let's be honest he ain't getting back to his best.

Also, Ed002, do you see Arsenal signing a forward on January?

Thanks for all the prompt responses in any case. Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer easily about the timining of transfers. If Arsenal can get a player they are interested in during January, that makes sense. If they can't, a knee jerk signing makes zero sense. Realistically, the summer will allow Arsenal to clearly identify suitable options and do something about it.}

4.) 19 Jan 2022 18:25:31
Thanks Ed, really appreciate your insight!

{Ed002's Note - I appreciate that.}

5.) 19 Jan 2022 20:47:38
Thanks Ed002, Brilliant Info. Have a good one ??.

6.) 21 Jan 2022 01:15:18
I agree with what you’re saying Ed. Well said. Hopefully we’ve learnt from past deals to be more calculated with this promising future project.

Massive 3 points. Win against Leeds crucial. Last two games will be tough irrespective of the result down the road against the lot.

Time to get behind the team.

Oh to be.




19 Jan 2022 18:20:29
Just read about the FA investigation on an Arsenal player for receiving a yellow card and hearing rumours that it is xhakas card in the leeds game. If true this is just utterly dissapointing. I don't care how good/ bad a player is but this is the line and he should be banned from Arsenal/ PL/ Football based on the actual findings.

Man, this Amazon documentary is going to get some real content ?.


1.) 19 Jan 2022 19:29:35
Got booked 86th minute for time wasting in that game. 2 minutes after esr had scored our 4th to put us 4-1 up. IF, and its a big if, it's true, it's not hard to see why they're investigating it.

2.) 19 Jan 2022 20:26:42
Who ever it was, why? They are on such massive wages they really don't need the money, a player in league one or two i can see the temptation even then not the justification, but on premier league wages, why?

3.) 19 Jan 2022 20:50:34
Apparently someone wager £60k sometime after the 80th minute mark.

4.) 20 Jan 2022 07:53:26
Yes it was me I had a gut feeling xhaka would get booked.



06 Jan 2022 15:46:50
Hello Ed002, hope you're well mate! With Allegri clearly saying Ramsey's exit is imminent, would you know which clubs are interested in him?

Thanks as always!



{Ed002's Note - Wrong page, this is the Arsenal page - try the European pages.}

1.) 06 Jan 2022 20:07:59
Newcastle - they love our players.

2.) 06 Jan 2022 20:09:57
Jack and Aaron back in the Arsenal cmf again, what could be more exciting ????.



20 Nov 2021 19:45:39
4 defeats in last 21
Same points in PL as Liverpool this calendar year
Youngest team in the league.

We have been worse. Chin up lads, onto Newcastle.


1.) 20 Nov 2021 20:47:19
We’ve also been a million times better - only looking foward to crappy games against mid / bottom feeders isn’t what I want from Arsenal. I want us to fight, press and learn - always make a game a fight even if it’s a rubbish day. Liverpool cut through midfield and defence with ease. Inexperience cost us but do did a blunt attack as who is afraid of PEA - not even the three little piggies wouldn’t be afraid of the once big bad wolf. If we have a blunt attack it puts way to much pressure on the defence. We then have no beast in CM which everyone wanted and no leadership in the middle of defence. It’s not the game we need a defender who tries to run the ball out of defence of smack 60 yard passes. We need a decent strong CD pair who boss the defence. Fullbacks made a few stupid skool boy mistakes.

Who is going to develop Gabs and White as they need help defending against to
Who is protecting them on the pitch.
Who is keeping the ball so players can breath
Who is actually going to score against a top back 4. I’ve never seen PEA bully a decent CD. He’s lazy and not good enough to expose that halitosis of a defender because he gives up and doesn’t put them under pressure so mistakes are made / capitalised on which is the opposite which Pool did and no surprise that we are looking up to them. It’s these small differences all over the pitch.

Do you honestly believe this squad and manager is good enough to get top 3. I don’t. I have major concerns about the squad, leadership and manager. He needs help and needs to improve the squad.

2.) 20 Nov 2021 21:02:40
For me the CB’s have to be much much better . Our inexperience showed but will improve year on year . We have the ability to contend for top 4 I’m sure.

3.) 20 Nov 2021 21:35:10
Same old same old you will finish between 5th or 7th come may.

4.) 21 Nov 2021 08:52:17
I can’t see any of the very average bunch finish above us - 4th mate with your spud boys propping up the top 7 ?.

5.) 21 Nov 2021 09:19:26
Same old same old you`ll win feck all come what may COYG.

{Ed014's Note - raver knows that but struggles to accept it and any loss for us is like a shining beacon in a world of grey for him. ?

6.) 21 Nov 2021 10:24:11
Haha Ed - blow out our candle so their candle shines . nope their candle still not shining bright or at all! Is a tour of the Spurs trophy cabinet billed as the Middlesex History Museum? The biggest club with the poorest trophy return - a great title for the next DVD COYG.

{Ed014's Note - they really are mate and currently not looking that good against Leeds! ?



01 Sep 2021 16:04:33
Hi fellow Gooners,
Can I just take a moment to thank Ed002 for the incredible insight he has provided us throughout this window. I think I speak on behalf of all the posters here (most of them atleast) that Ed002 your input is absolutely brilliant and it amazes me how much you know about the business side of the sport.

I regularly visit the other pages and I've seen the insight you gave in Mbappe for example and how Madrid would go all in for him this season and so many more examples are there.

For anyone who's stupid enough to post profanity against the eds, this window is a great example of just how invaluable his information can be. Have a great one Ed002 and all the other Eds who have helped mod this forum, cheers guys.



{Ed002's Note - You are very kind, thank you.}

1.) 01 Sep 2021 18:41:54
The only Ed you should be able to abuse is Ed014.

{Ed014's Note - I’d much rather you abused me than Ed02 to be fair!

That and I love a bit of banter! 🤣

2.) 01 Sep 2021 20:03:13
Hold on, don't make it sound like I abuse Ed002. I have enough trouble making friends.

3.) 01 Sep 2021 20:32:42
Ed014 normally pays good money for that sort of treatment 🤣 and I have to say ED002 has been extremely patient with us gooners the last few months, I think he’s actually starting to like us lol. Joking aside thanks to all the Ed’s for all the time they give up for us lot 👍.

{Ed002's Note - We appreciate it.}

4.) 01 Sep 2021 19:54:30
What is it the Eurythmics said

Some of them want to abuse you, some of them want to be abused.

Whatever turns you on Ed014 mate 😃😂😁😀.

{Ed014's Note - thanks mate 😂😂

5.) 01 Sep 2021 21:42:33
I agree I always thank the eds for this great site it should be above sky sports I think it tells you the truth.

6.) 01 Sep 2021 23:21:48
This site has always been miles ahead of sky sports Stephen mate, no pretence or sensationalism, simply tells it like it is, disappoint or please.

7.) 02 Sep 2021 09:27:14
I must chip in and say thank you too to the Eds.

To Ed02 for the regular and up to date catalog of info. It’s like picking your lecturer brain on a particular subject. Absolutely priceless! Scholarly.

To Ed14 for your balance opinion, a gooner and your love for Bissouma 😀. January is just around the corner 🤞🏾cross! Objective.

To Ed01 for the player analysis and general football news. Connoisseur.

Really appreciate it. Only thing missing is the app.

Stay bless everyone.

Thanks for the quick reply, from the previous list thatnyou provided, any other new players where we are showing interest? Even Aurelien Tchouameni amongst mentioned too.

Thabks Ed002 great inisght. Are there any changes in the interest shown for incomings in the summer? I know a lot depends on where we finish but could you tell us where our interests have been shown? Players like the Udinnesse RB Molina, Jesus, Rashford, Tammy Abraham, Victori Osimhen mentioned amongst other.

Thanks in advance. Love your work



{Ed002's Note - I expect changes to the targets if Arsenal don't qualify for the Champions League.}

Very interesting insight Ed. With Athletico Madrid running into financial issues and Joao Felix being potentially available for sale. Do you see Arsenal being interested in a move like that? The financials involved would be huge. Who has shown interest in Joao?

Thanks as always for the wonderful work ED002. Have a great one!


{Ed002's Note - Joao Felix (AM/F) An approach for him from Barcelona was rejected in the summer although they will return. Manchester City see him and another as a potential Aguero replacement rather than recruiting a Kane or Martinez type striker. Juventus and Inter have enquired after a loan as Atletico need to reduce their wage bill. Barcelona interest will persist.}

I absolutely loved it, It was so good to see how it was picked up on Twitter, got viral and was played at the stadium in a span of 10 days. I still think Sweet Caroline should be played at the end of all wins but before the kick-off this song really gives you the feels. And for someone who does not have the honour of attending Arsenal games week in-week out, for someone who does not even live in England, You feel a part of the club with such things. What do you guys think of the song?

That's a fair shout mate, I was thinking on the same lines. But the optimist in me is saying these lads would love to go to the toilet bowl and get a result. I respect that they have got a great team too but I think they will have to get the game to us and we break quite well and with devastation. Hopefully we get the job done on Thursday night.
