This Mesut Ozil saga has to come to an end. This post may cause a bit of stir, but i still believe this guy has a massive role to play. I know some of you have been slating him and he deserves some of it. But since his omission from the squad, has any player actually stepped up to create chances?

We're constantly leaving ourselves short at LB as Kolasinac is the only player in the team who actually puts a ball into the box, but due to his commitment going forward we suffer. No other player in the league picks a pass like Ozil, and this guy needs to be given a free role in our team. As for Emery i can’t see his reign lasting two long.

Also can i just point out that one of the only first team coach still left at the club from the wenger reign is the supposed defensive coach of Steve Bould? How can we not get this defense right with such a great defender coaching them?


1.) 15 Feb 2019 21:32:26
Steve Bould wasn’t a great defender mate! . Ozil is a great player.

2.) 16 Feb 2019 03:41:48
I'm with you there JG but I don't know how much of the Ozil situation is down to Emery and how much is due to the guys upstairs. Do they want him out to free up the wage bill? Are they trying to embarrass him deliberately after the mistake they made giving him that contract? Baffling and frustrating.

3.) 16 Feb 2019 10:36:12
It sounds like a pretty desperate defence of Emery blaming the club for Dick not playing Mesut wire mate.
Sorry but it does sound ever so similar to the naughty stadium defence of Arsenes choices and decisions that backfired too.
Personally I think it's easier to deal with what we know and see for ourselves rather than guess at possible answers that deflect from the fact that we look no better now than we did under Arsene but Mesut is reduced to watching Xhaka play in almost every game now.
Dick in my opinion took the easy option of dropping Mesut and it's not worked out well.

4.) 16 Feb 2019 12:45:19
To be fair g62 none of us 'know' anything except that Ozil isn't playing and there's a different excuse every other day. I'm willing to bet Ozil would be playing if he wasn't on 350k a week, which to me seems like the club want him gone so he can free up the wage bill.

Maybe someone ITK can elaborate further. I'm not making excuses for Emery, the whole situation irritates me as we are clearly a lot better off playing Ozil than this situation as it drags on, whatever you think of the player himself.

5.) 16 Feb 2019 13:05:31
Fair comment Wire mate but although I agree the club would most likely wish Mesut off the wage bill I really don't think it's the club choosing not to select him or Ramsey I think that's 100% Dicks choice and one most fans are struggling with simply because we struggling to be betrer without him than with.
Managers stand or fall by their decisions and Dicks big choices aren't paying dividends when I watch the team play.
I just can't see any difference between Arsene and Dick being in charge in the way we perform on the pitch which when all said and done is what really matters.

{Ed001's Note - Emery has a free hand in team selections, it was one of the things he insisted on before he took the job after his experience at PSG where he was forced to play certain players.}

6.) 16 Feb 2019 17:24:20
Thanks Ed0001 mate, that's some crazy set up where someone else picks some of your team for you or worse still players have it on their contracts they must play.
Now I would have total sympathy for any coach who was forced to include certain individuals and question why other than money they would work under such restrictions, seems like a hiding to nothing job to take in the first place.

{Ed001's Note - hiding to nothing but it makes you wealthy and you still get big jobs afterwards as everyone knows you were on a hiding to nothing. It is win win really.}

7.) 17 Feb 2019 13:02:13
I get the whole "Get Ozil off the wage bill " thing but let's face it, he is still one of the best players in the world on his day and talent like that is not to readily available. So you take a massive hit on Ozil and buy what? Another player that could not get in at Barcelona or Citeh you then have their wages to find. Wish Dick would just swallow his pride and admit he is wrong about Ozil.

8.) 16 Mar 2019 06:33:28
As someone who’s not an arsenal fan, I’d see your best midfield as a three of Xhaka Torreira Ramsey (obviously not long term) then Ozil ahead of them behind lacazzete and aubameyang. Torreira and Xhaka can drop deep if needs be so Ozil can play freely and Ramsey can bomb on. Wouldn’t have much natural width but could dominate the centre of the park so Kolasinac and Bellerin could provide it.



12 Dec 2018 20:14:05
Any truth in the links to Eric Bailly or Gary Cahill Eds?


{Ed025's Note - not as far as i know mate..

1.) 12 Dec 2018 22:35:09
Cheers for the reply bud.

2.) 14 Dec 2018 00:02:51
I can easily see us going for Cahill in january.

3.) 14 Dec 2018 09:39:12
Very good back up option, still a quality defender, and puts his body infront of anything. Would be a decent signing i think Steve.

4.) 14 Dec 2018 13:54:03
Agree boys and he's only a pup compared to Litch :-)

5.) 14 Dec 2018 18:06:45
Gunner, he would be a bung not a solution but we need a bung at the moment. Nothing to do with GG though.

6.) 14 Dec 2018 20:33:17
The last bit lost me completely Steve mate?

7.) 14 Dec 2018 22:05:13
George Graham, Bung?
I know, sorry. Bung just reminded me of George.

8.) 14 Dec 2018 22:27:01
Sorry mate, I was a bit thick there wasn't I:-) with you now :-)



20 Nov 2018 15:35:31
Any truth in the Denis Suarez rumours eds? Not sure how he would cope in the Premier League, could be a good signing.


{Ed002's Note - Denis Suarez is a player who is reluctant to leave Barcelona but is concerned at the lack of game time. Barcelona need to raise funds to help with planned changes and are open to offers - and there is interest from Valencia and Lazio - but the interest of Napoli will have drifted away. I am not aware of interest being shown by Arsenal at this time. They have other targets so could perhaps turned to him if they are unable to secure any of those.}

1.) 20 Nov 2018 22:19:41
Thanks for the reply! Amazing info as always.



03 Aug 2018 22:56:05
With Kolasinac out untill mid October, does anyone think we will be looking for cover? i'd personally like a move for Danny Rose, quality player who i think could upset a few yids another Sol Campbell saga lol.


1.) 05 Aug 2018 02:27:37
Zero chance of Rose. Maitland-Niles will play against City and Monreal should recover from a minor knee injury soon.



08 Jul 2018 13:50:10
Sky reporting that were in talks to sign Guendouzi, anyone have any info on this kid? Seems like this might be the youngster Ornstein was talking about, 19 year old, another midfielder. Feel like we have an over load, unless the club are getting ready for some departures? I feel we are desperate for a winger and anoth LB.


{Ed002's Note - He would be one for the future.}

1.) 08 Jul 2018 15:42:36
Ed when you have a moment will you please provide us with an extensive scouting report of the player highlighting his strengths and weaknesses and also a comparison to a current player.

2.) 08 Jul 2018 16:37:22

3.) 09 Jul 2018 07:40:57
Wow come on really extensive scouting report 👀👀.

{Ed001's Note - he is just a kid, not sure how we are expected to provide 'extensive' scouting reports for a kid none us will have seen playing.}

4.) 09 Jul 2018 08:57:05
Think the joke went over someone’s head.

5.) 09 Jul 2018 09:16:18
It did mine JW, but now you now you point it out i get it :-) , as someone said the other day irony doesn't always translate well in text unless you make totally obvious.

6.) 09 Jul 2018 11:35:50
Tongue-in-cheek, request Ed. ;)

{Ed001's Note - apologies mate, I had just woken up when I replied X-XC, never thought.}

7.) 09 Jul 2018 16:04:33
It went over my head too Ed001 mate and still would be if it wasn't for JW pointing it out, mind you that's not unusual for me :-)

{Ed001's Note - very true you must be about 2 ft tall as most stuff goes over your head.}

8.) 09 Jul 2018 18:35:10
Very true Ed but at 8 feet round there ain't much gets by me :-)

{Ed001's Note - I can't even begin to imagine what that looks like, but I am guessing very like Ed025 in his younger days.}

Ed1, just caught up on the latest ask Ed, through what years did you live in Sunny Donny? Thought i'd let you know the town is still painted orange on a Saturday night 🤣.


{Ed001's Note - it was a while ago now, maybe 15 years ago.}



09 Aug 2019 09:36:39
hows everyone feeling about the upcoming season? Pretty good transfer window, hopefully we can shift one or two more out to a european team before their windows shut. Thought i'd share my team for Sunday

AMN Chambers Sokratis Kola
Torreria Willock
Pepe Laca Auba

Luiz to play DM and slot into a back 3 when were attacking. i'm going 4-1 to the Arsenal. COYG.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 10:59:56
I'm thinking if we get things right we are well capable of 3rd or 4th while obviously accepting if we get things wrong we could easily finish 5th or 6th.
We have the squad now no question so it all comes down to what we do with it.
The one thing I'm absolutely certain of is over 38 games we and everyone else will get what they earn no more no less and refs decisions var injury will as always be just excuses used by those who fail to be the best they could have been.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 12:52:51
I can't see Pepe starting, or even playing, on Sunday.

3.) 09 Aug 2019 16:13:46
I feel we have a very good chance i feel of getting top 4 4th maybe 3rd even and on balance after this window our overall squad quality is slightly better then Utd and Chelsea. However with Arsenal we never do it easy looks how we messed up the end of least seasson when it was in our grasp to get top 4. Injuires will be key obvs. and the treatment table is already getting tasty before a ball is kicked. Getting Bellerin and Holding back will help alot. Not sure Luiz is the answer to our defensive concerns but has to be a better option than Mustafi. The mentality is the key for us more than anything else

Utd I feel will miss Lukaku more than they realise for his physical presence in their playing style. For me utd lack midfield creativity and rely a lot on the what sort of mood Pogba is in still. Lost of running but not much Guile and craft for me

Chelsea losing Hazard is massive although the Pulisic looks decent I jut don't think there is enough of a consistent goal threat up front with Chelsea.

Spurs are a bit ahead of us but if they lose Erikson that could a big blow as as he is their main creater.

4.) 09 Aug 2019 16:21:01
Maitland-Niles Luiz Sokratis Kolasinac
Torreira Xhaka
Pepe Ceballos Aubameyang



28 Jun 2019 20:42:19
Sky reporting we have met with the representatives of zaha/ palace, do any of the eds have any info on this? Or how were thinking of funding the transfer?


{Ed047's Note - If it’s on Sky it must be true and Arsenal are setting up a go fund me page to pay for him, Kroenke has put in a fiver.

1.) 28 Jun 2019 21:04:45
According to Sky Artetta is handling the negotiations himself in his capacity as Arsenal manager:-)

2.) 29 Jun 2019 02:17:21
Love it Ed lol I heard kroenke up it to 10 pound as he was getting accused of not spending enough money.



27 May 2019 14:08:46
So Allegri has said he may take a year off, maybe he could replace Emery after 19/ 20 season 🤣 obviously depending on how Emery does next season! But he did sign a 2 year deal with an option of a third. Dreaming i know 😉.


1.) 27 May 2019 17:11:48
Fingers crossed we can only dream.

{Ed002's Note - Allegri will not be joining Arsenal.}

2.) 27 May 2019 17:54:01
Why are you so sure Ed? Did we burn bridges when we appointed Emery?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot be expected to justify why people won't be joining Arsenal - particularly those where there is no interest.}

3.) 27 May 2019 18:09:26
Never say never ed lol we can dream.

4.) 27 May 2019 20:26:52
, thanks Ed.

5.) 27 May 2019 23:17:09
Ed002 also said he doesn’t understand the problem Arsenal and Chelsea have of getting to Baku and why the fuss.

6.) 28 May 2019 03:19:48
Way to ruin the party Ed 🤣 was fun while it lasted 😩😂.

7.) 28 May 2019 07:30:47
We have a fine manager in Emery, who despite being left a squad in decline, finished a place higher than the previous season, with more points, closed the gap on top place and reduced the gap between us and the Toot from 14 points to a solitary point, whilst reaching the EL final, providing the possibility of a trophy and qualification for the CL in his first season. There is even talk of Emery being on Barcelona's list to take over as manager.
Alegri has a fine record, but whether that would transmit from winning the league consistently with Juventus in Italy, to being capable of rebuilding Arsenal, with an extremely limited budget would be interesting.
Many will disagree with me, but if Emery were to be replaced, in the short term it would be Mourinho for me. He is a serial trophy winner, and would ruffle feathers above, which is needed for Kroenke to open the purse strings.
A EL win would provide Emery with a higher budget and I can envisage us cathcing the Toot and Chelsea, who were only one and two points above us. Cathcing Man City and LIverpool will require either heavy spending or the patience to alllow Emery to build his squad over the next 2 or three seasons.



08 May 2019 20:39:36
We have to go and buy Ziyech from Ajax in the summer, what a player!


{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation.}

1.) 08 May 2019 20:52:11
You said there is an issue that has made other clubs look elsewhere, iv tried the search bar but had no luck. What is the issue with the player Ed?

{Ed002's Note - That is unimportant, but Arsenal would need to think very carefully about him before making an offer.}

2.) 08 May 2019 21:06:21
Thanks Ed. He is some talent though. Fillowing on from your post earlier Ed, will the club look to move Ozil on? I know it will be hard to find a suitor for the wages but do you think Arsenal will pay half if the right bid comes in for him? Personally i'd like to see him stay and build the team around him. If they do sell out of our targets i'd be more than happy with James Maddison 😁.

{Ed002's Note - If they can they will sell him.}

3.) 08 May 2019 21:24:42
If we are not going to play to Mesuts strengths what's the point in keeping him? I'm not saying we should or shouldn't build a team around him but surely we should do one thing or the other, let him go on a free to free up wages or make him the main man where he can show why he's our top earner.

4.) 09 May 2019 10:25:58
What’s the issue with him ed, does he have an attitude?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}

Laca is no captain, vice captain maybe, but we know he probably isn’t going to start every week, he goes missing/ stroppy when it isn’t going quite his way. Yeah when he is good he is fantastic and puts a shift in. For me i’d be happy with 1 of 3 Sokratis, Bellerin or Xhaka, yeah Xhaka performamces are not the best, but he does show leadership on the pitch, he shouts, he instructs, he let's players know. I would still rather we sold him, but i do believe he is our beat option, he’s also the captain of swiss national side. must do somethinf right.

Thanks Ed, i knew he could cover all 3 just thought he was predominantly a LW.

You say a RW is more of a priority, does that mean we will look to play Zaha on the right, correct me if i'm wrong but i thought he usually plays on the left? Or would you say that we hve moved on from Zaha ed?


{Ed002's Note - Zaha is a RW who can also play on the LW and as a S if needed.}

Iv also read its poor, but iv seen more reviews on the player in the last few days stating other wise, thingers crossed he can hit the ground running in the league, if he does sign that is, as the french league is not much comparison to the premier league. We maybe thinking in a few months what if we went for Zaha instead 🤣.

Real quality defender, i think it helps in the style Liverpool play, it really suits him! Shame we didn’t snatch him from Celtic, was it around 8m Southampton paid for him.

He is definitely a good player but i would not be interested in loosing Auba for a slower fatter version.
