Any chance of a breakdown of what could potentially happen today Ed02?

I know you said you wouldn’t be doing them anymore, but i know 99% of us would really appreciate it if you have time 😁.


{Ed002's Note - There are going to be a whole host of moves today. Chiesa, Grujic, Emerson, Rudiger, Depay, Clarke-Salter, Shaqiri, Telles, Bouna Sarr, Milik, Cuisance .... maybe Dembele, maybe Partey - but nothing involving Arsenal unless they loan one or two out.}

1.) 05 Oct 2020 12:00:39
Ed, could I trouble you to inquire who the clubs are that could move for Partey considering we will not have the money to meet his valuation?

{Ed002's Note - Pretty much anyone who is left needing a DM and has €50M in cash. But now it is very late and most of what will happen will be loans.}

2.) 05 Oct 2020 12:22:43
Cheers Ed.

3.) 05 Oct 2020 18:52:19
Sorry for the late appreciation Ed, been grafting since i posted this 😄.

{Ed002's Note - Grafting? Disgusting- make sure your web cam is turned off.}

4.) 05 Oct 2020 19:53:51
Always on Ed, no point of no one’s watching, plus there is some money to be made on Onlyfans 😉.



19 Aug 2020 10:59:29
Hi Eds, any truth in the Sokratis to Napoli rumours?

Would be good to start seeing a shift of the outward players, especially defenders with the GM links getting stronger.


{Ed002's Note - Roma have shown an interest.}

1.) 19 Aug 2020 12:33:55
Thanks Ed.



05 Jan 2020 21:42:30
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 :-)



27 Oct 2019 00:19:31
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.}

If we were Spurs, we would have
‘Relegated Big Sam’ in the trophy cabinet.




06 Mar 2021 14:28:32
Anyone else feel like 70 minutes of that game seemed to be shown by BT at half speed 🤣 Burnleys game plan of not watering the pitch seemed to work well.




30 Dec 2020 22:50:54
Ho Eds, this could be quite a random one, but with some big names being free agents this summer do you know of anyone that could be of interest to Arsenal? Cheers and all the best for 2021 🍻.


{Ed002's Note - You need to be more specific.}

1.) 30 Dec 2020 23:23:52
Sotiris Papagiannopoulos That’s quite a big name 🤪.

2.) 31 Dec 2020 10:38:47
We already have Konstantinos Mavropanos, how big do you want. He’s so big we had to loan him out.

3.) 31 Dec 2020 12:12:46
Lol apparently it was £400 per game for the letters on his shirt they could have paid gunnersaurus with that 😂😂.



24 Dec 2020 10:34:36
Thomas Tuchel anyone? 🤣.


1.) 24 Dec 2020 11:18:59
Might not be a bad option tbf 🤷🏻‍♂️.



23 Dec 2020 11:54:04
Just going to throw a thought out there.

Does anyone think that this is iust the players not playing for Arteta? I mean look back at the wins against City, Liverpool and Chelsea last season. Yeah we probably should of lost 2/ 3 but the team was solid, battled for every ball and hunted in packs, broke out from the back and scored some nice team goals. Even against the lesser teams we were scoreing and creating chances. It has only turned sour since the united game.


1.) 23 Dec 2020 12:38:58
I think you are right - the squad is better than bottom half never mind bottom 5.

2.) 23 Dec 2020 13:08:59
I mean i'm not saying Arteta has done everything right, but i ultimately don’t think he deserves all the criticism for the performances of the players.

{Ed047's Note - I know what you mean 93 but the manager always carries the can no matter that some players clearly haven’t showered themselves in glory.

3.) 23 Dec 2020 17:38:33
I think it’s gone sour after the Fulham game we was lucky to beat West Ham and Sheffield utd. we was solid and played well Man U game but still had to rely on a pen. all the rest has just been pants.

4.) 23 Dec 2020 20:08:07
I do t even think the Fulham game was great while Sheffield Utd couldn’t beat their own shadow and teams cut through us like a hot knife through butter. We’ve been weak all season.

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.

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.

Seen a few reports regarding Patrick Van Aanhalt Ed? Any truth in that do you know?


{Ed002's Note - It would be another who will be reasonably cheap now as his contract is running out.}

Read every where that Real will talk in the summer regarding Ødegaard and Ceballos with Arsenal.

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?}

Dealt with everything that came to him, and took some brilliant balls out of the air. Can’t complain.

I think the whole team selection yesterday was right, rested a lot and got a performance out of the team, Gabriel definitely looks better with Luiz in there. I suppose the fact that Mat Ryan speaks about 400 languages helps massively as well.

Apparently the statement from the Kronke’s is word for word on a interview done in 2011, so they wither have great memory or the papers just wanted more clicks.

Ed baring a few from United it would be 50/ 50 for places. I think and not looking for excuses that United have been lucky with more than a few decisions which have resulted in getting points this season.

Baring Fernandes, wan bissaka and Rashford, I wouldn’t want anyone else from United.


{Ed077's Note - then surely Arteta is dragging the squad down. After all Man Utd finished 3rd last season too whilst Arsenal were competing for top half finish just like this season, with all due respect.

Maybe if you guys tried to play in and around the opposition ox every so often instead of passing square balls inside your own box then you might get lucky sometimes instead of conceding silly, avoidable goals.

P.s I actually think Man Utd should be doing better but for OGS.

It’s difficult to say that Arsenal finished 8th last season under Arteta because he took over after boxing day. Like i said better defensively and a better shape, we have lost something in attack. Would we be any better now with Emery in charge, impossible to say. Like would anyone other than Arteta be doing any better? that's anyones guess.

To be honest Ox i'm not sure why they aren’t they delivering, we can say its Arteta, yet he somehow got them to beat Liverpool, Chelsea and City last season, he has shown he knows what it takes. Maybe we have a group that just can’t go 90 minutes without switching off or making a mistake. I think its ability, compare our squad with the teams above us and can you honestly say we have more than maybe 3/ 4 that would get into any of their 11s? there's lots of work to do with that squad, and the question is can the club afford to bring in a world class manager and supply them with funds to get who they want?
The thing i fear for the summer is we get rid of too many and don't have enough cover.

If they all leave we need two CBs two RBs and a LB
Again 2 centre mids and 1 attacking mid.

Loosing all these and replacing will be difficult enough under normal circumstances but with CV and no funds coming in from tickets, its not looking like it will be great.


{Ed077's Note - A few weeks ago, people here were saying not many players from Man Utd would get into a combined 11. Now they arent good enough to be competing for European places? Im confused...}
