Any truth in the links with Max Aarons Eds? Kids got potential, would be a good signing in my opinion, just depends on the size of the fee.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by Arsenal although there is from elsewhere - I certainly cannot see a January move.}

1.) 06 Jan 2020 12:49:55
Cheers mate.

2.) 08 Jan 2020 00:53:56
I like Aarons too. Always a positive player for Norwich and probably their best defender (though that isn't saying much) .



15 Dec 2019 12:30:12
Any of the Eds have any more info on who out future manager may be? I see no point in rushing to a decision.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything new, or anything beyond what I said. The structure remains an issue in terms of (a) deciding who they want, and (b) selling the position to who they want.}

1.) 15 Dec 2019 19:01:36
Thanks Ed! Slightly dissapointed that a club of our size and stature is in such a dire state! But again thabks for the reply!

2.) 15 Dec 2019 21:08:09
Does anyone know why the club has decided on such a strange structure? Or is it just a load of people fumbling around in the dark hoping to find a light switch?

{Ed047's Note - I can only assume they don’t really know what they’re doing.

Failing to attract the best possible coach because of it.

Also having procured Mislintat but for some reason then allow him to leave and then fail to attract Monshi to replace him.

And now scratching around looking for someone who they were pretty much lumbered with appointing first time around.

3.) 15 Dec 2019 22:03:29
The conclusion I've reached is that the Kroenkes are completely disinvested in the sport of football and view Arsenal solely as a financial investment designed to bring dividends. This is obviously not news to you all. They've hired some people who may or may not know what they're doing, but said people are incapable of identifying their own flaws and do not have an owner who is willing to hold them to account.

Our board, often the group who is there to make sure we are on track, is devoid of people with football experience, are solely financially motivated and have no ideas or input. In effect what we have is a bureaucracy designed around its own survival rather than the survival of AFC.

4.) 16 Dec 2019 07:01:02
Ed002 warned about the problems ‘upstairs’ at the club and he is totally correct. They took too long to sack Emery after he had clearly lost the players and the fans. Now they are undertaking this odd process of interviewing and choosing a manager from a large pool of candidates. It’s far easier, subject to availability, Pochettino or Rafa Benitez.

5.) 16 Dec 2019 07:58:43
When we interview Poch shall we empty chair him or use any ice sculpture to symbolise him :-)

What does everyone think of the pictures / rumours regarding Mourinho?


1.) 27 Oct 2019 07:11:28
I would love serial trophy winner Mourinho at the club. With the squad we now have he would be a great choice to restore CL football and trophies to the club.
Although, as I have stated previously Emery improved us in his first season and should be given a chance until the end of the season to see how we progress with the three long term injured defenders and Lacazette back, as well as bedding in the new players.

2.) 27 Oct 2019 08:26:30
What pictures are these mate?

3.) 27 Oct 2019 14:40:09
Who's reporting these stories?
Oh look it's the Benzema and Higguian mystery medical media set again :-)

4.) 27 Oct 2019 15:27:26
Tbf, iv only seen it on twitter, but he was pictured in executive section at the Emirates, aparently sat with Sanllehi.

Although i just think the guy was there to watch football, as he lives in London and i doubt he is welcome at the bridge.

I don't think he would be a bad till the end of the season replacement if the club were to sack Emery, however, I wouldn’t give him any longer than that, and doubt he would want any longer than that with how much money he likes to spend.
Anyhow, i just thought i would get peoples opinion on him.

And no G62 it wasn’t sky.

5.) 27 Oct 2019 21:00:59
No its on the metro express and all other well known mischief makers and truth inventors 93 mate :-) 1% facts twisted into 0.0000000% truth :-)
No credible outlast is claiming it to be anything more than what it was which is why they are and remaind credible even though less rich than those who see truth as an inconvenience.

6.) 28 Oct 2019 02:49:50
This rumour is likely to be utter bull. That said, JoMo is the last man on earth I would want in charge of Arsenal.

Personally I don't know what we are meant to do here. I like Rafa Benitez though - and he is available.

{Ed047's Note - after the mess he’s left behind in his previous two roles he’s clearly past his sell by date and plays outdated football.

Why would people want that here 🤷‍♂️

7.) 28 Oct 2019 08:14:32
Any chance we could pry Brendan Rodgers away from Leicester City.

8.) 28 Oct 2019 08:33:18
We have a more than reasonable squad and a level headed reasonably good manager could quite easily to come in and turn things around very quickly and give us more than decent chance of top 4 finish.
We don't need Pep or Jurgen to turn this squad into champions league qualifiers we just need someone who knows what he's doing and is happy for the players to make headlines and be the stars of the show.
Titles? Then we would need a Jurgen or Pep type manager but we are not yet ready for that level of competitiveness only to begin the journey towards it again.

9.) 28 Oct 2019 11:05:24
Why would Rodgers leave a better club to come to us.

10.) 29 Oct 2019 21:43:02
I think he would love the arsenal job! Would I want him? Probably not, like with United the style change would not appease fans, would he do a better job than emery I would say yes, . Mourinho has that attitude of a bloke who wants to shag someone else’s wife better.

11.) 31 Oct 2019 04:49:19
Would anyone else wantEddie Howe? He’s a manager who has a game plan, sticks to it, moves clubs the right way up the leagues/ tables.

{Ed047's Note - not anywhere near good enough for me.

12.) 31 Oct 2019 11:47:43
The fact that Emery is in a weak position, esp. in the minds of fans, it's no surprise that every Tom Tick and Harry will be linked with us. Mourinho just happens to be a free agent at the moment which makes it an inevitability he will be highlighted. Don't be surprised to see Allegri and Rodgers, amongst others flagged up in the coming weeks, if fortunes do not change.

I usually would not expect Arsenal to get rid of Emery until the end of the season, it's not been the clubs DNA to do that unless corruption/ illegality is implied. Having said that, I would not be surprised if the genetic make up at the club has sufficiently changed to see a swifter exit. I can't see this happening if there is no obvious replacement.

Two years ago I would have baulked at the idea of Mourinho, but I fear I could be persuaded in the midst of the defensive and organisational chaos in the team.

Strange times.

13.) 31 Oct 2019 11:53:11
I'm not sure about Eddie Howe, but we don't really know what he is capable of at a bigger club with better players. He can't be any worse than Emery surely; we gave him a job?

14.) 01 Nov 2019 02:17:30
Nothings going to happen to Emery anytime soon. I’d be keeping an eye on Enrique who was doing good with Spain before having to step away for personal reasons. He’s the type of manager who could at least get us back to playing football.

Mourinho - too big a risk. Expensive gamble.
Eddie Howe - not high profile enough

Pep and klopp people like. We need a manager the fans and the public can get behind.

15.) 03 Nov 2019 13:59:43
What about Rafa? Premier league experience, can organise a defense and has won trophies.

16.) 04 Nov 2019 12:50:53
Ed, what’s your opinion on the whole manager front with Arsenal. If this form doesn’t improve soon, how long would you expect Emery to remain, and do you think with what you know, if sacked, do you think they’d look for a profile or maybe stick with Freddie?

{Ed002's Note - The problem is largely with the structure of the club and in the big scheme of things the improvements that one might expect with the change of a coach will be constrained by that. Hence the problem getting a Technical Director and ending up with Edu, who was way down the list, this past summer.}



15 Feb 2019 19:52:37
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.

2 sleeps Gooners 😁 i'm really looking forward to football starting up again. Hector seemed to have some positive things to say the other day, other day regarding Arteta, and the benefit of having a mini pre season.

And one for G62 Callum Chambers is running again.


1.) 15 Jun 2020 10:04:30
Excellent news JGunner mate, how can the hamsom vision that is Calum Chambers fail to brighten up all our lives:-)
Actually Calum was doing really well before his injury so getting him back this or next season can be nothing but a good thing.

2.) 15 Jun 2020 20:26:23
Hi chaps - thoughts on the run in.

3.) 15 Jun 2020 21:24:55
Hi Banbury mate, good to know you are safe and well mate.
I think it's more difficult to predict now than ever as we can't yet know how each team will respond after the long break, personally I can't see how it will make any aims we might have any less likely than they already were before lock down and if a few teams above us struggle to get going an unexpected window of opportunity might possibly pop open! But it's anyone's guess really.

4.) 16 Jun 2020 19:29:20
Old grumpy Banbury is back just in time for kick off

You just knew it was going to happen.

5.) 16 Jun 2020 23:29:32
Yeah definitely difficult to predict what will happen, with playing behind closed doors. Think we have a lot of really winnable games. Maybe no crowd away from home can shift this poor form we have shown for years, and maybe help the players for when the crowds do return.



24 Dec 2019 19:22:28
Merry Christmas fellow gooners! Hope you all have a good one! All i'm asking for is 9 points over christmas 🙈 and no, not on my license.


{Ed047's Note - Happy Christmas J have a great one and leave the car at home! 😂

1.) 24 Dec 2019 19:41:40

2.) 24 Dec 2019 19:44:40
Merry Christmas all - even you Raver. Hope you too have a great Christmas and happy new year. Thanks for all the great posts everyone and the Ed interactions. It makes the site unique and we appreciate it.

3.) 24 Dec 2019 20:55:21
Cheers Ed047 mate, and just to say you've been a huge bonus on this page this year mate, it's absolutely brilliant to have an Arsenal Ed again you've been a huge asset to our page mate.

{Ed047's Note - thanks 62, much appreciated and I’m really enjoying it. 👍🏼



22 Dec 2019 12:01:44
Afternoon Eds,

With us obviously over spending in the summer, do any of you have any insight into the January window? With obviously people having to be moved on before Arteta can even speak to Vinchia and Raul about there plans.


{Ed002's Note - The club had asked coaches they had wanted to take on the job if they could work with the existing squad - and to some extent selling to buy as being another option. For now the interest has to be shelved whilst the coach decides what he can do with the players he has and the club can sort out contracts.}

1.) 22 Dec 2019 18:21:53
So sensible so unArsenal like :-)
The FA cup and Europa league are still to play for this season but league wise it's all about Mikel learning who he can and can't work with next season and the years ahead from the squad he's inherited.
No point in throwing good money after bad before you've found out what you can get out of who you already have.
Who knows Mustafi might even earn an new content under Arteta and a fresh approach.



09 Dec 2019 21:41:16
Well Xhaka didn't have time to back out of that one 🥴.




02 Nov 2019 18:54:16
I bet Xhaka was sat at home laughing. He mist be feeling a oittle better after seeing that result, although the performance was slightly better, we really need to learn how to see out a game. 3 games on the spin we have been in a winning position with 20 ish minutes to play.


{Ed047's Note - if he just watched Torriera I doubt whether he’d be laughing, how he gets in the team ahead of him is ridiculous.

1.) 02 Nov 2019 19:07:22
He surely realises himself he isn’t good enough for this league. However, he doesn’t pick himself to play week in week out 🤣.

{Ed047's Note - 😂 good point!

2.) 02 Nov 2019 19:40:17
To be fair its impossible for any player to decide he's not good enough, some players are their own harshest critics while Ibrahimovic still thinks he's the best player in the world at 38 and probably still will at 58.
If Emery picks Xhaka it's 100% Emerys bad regardless of how poor Xhaka plays.

I’d like to remind you, that a young AMN had €100m Paul Pogba in his pocket at Old Trafford, kid needs a chance to prove himself in his natural position rather than playing cover for every position apart from CM. I believe there is definitely a player in there, and it’s Arteta’s job to find it. Willock for me could be our major break through over the next 18 months, again a player who needs a good run of games, but again I'm positive there is a player in there too. And then we have two awesome talents in Saka and Martinelli who will both go on to win major trophies, no doubt about that.

I wouldn’t want Torreria replacaing Ed, he’s still a young un, with Arteta if he is as good as they say on an individual level, he could create a real player there.


{Ed047's Note - no me neither J, Arteta is using him as he should be used and I’m more than happy with that.

I don’t like to be down on Xhaka but he really is the one who needs to be replaced/upgraded.

I know there was big talk of a buy and loan back, but am i right in saying that still can’t happen ed? But a deal can be agreed in principle for him to join after his 18th.

Like to get peoples opinion on Grealish? I think he should be the type of player to look at in the summer, could learn a lot off Ozil if he is still here next season or simply replace him straight into the team. Great leader at Villa but leading a freshly promoted team to leading a team that should be competing at the top is completely different.


{Ed002's Note - Arsenal cannot buy him and loan him back. They could reach an agreement for a transfer in the future.}

Arteta had previously said his options about Pepe through the middle when Nketiah was suspended, which i presume is why he started 2/ 3 games from the bench, but then again, for me its not a bad shout, the lad can run, finish and dribble what more do you need from a striker? 🤣.

I for one do not believe Mustafi has had a bad game since the restart 🤷🏼‍♂️ Maybe it was all to do with coaching and direction.

Yeah we got turned over by City and slipped up against Brighton, but i don’t remember it being A Mustafi error leading to the goals.

I know he has been bad for us in the past, new coaches/ management means new starts for all players.

Same goes for Xhaka, we looked poor without him, however his return to the side really boosted the performances.
