£50m on Ben White 😳🥴
That’s a lot of money we don’t have to spend on a position we don’t need right now huh.

I’m hoping it’s a smokescreen for Bissouma 🤞🏼.


1.) 24 Jun 2021 17:17:43
Exactly when we’ve spent £27m on saliba who doesn’t get a kick.

2.) 24 Jun 2021 17:42:02
Saliba is a leftie, 20 years old who hasn't played in the Prem. Ben White is RD, more experienced and 23. Maybe it's not an urgent need, but if MA says it will improve the squad, who am I to say otherwise.

Saliba will get his chance.

3.) 24 Jun 2021 18:12:36
Saliva ain't a leftie.

4.) 24 Jun 2021 19:22:41
I stand corrected!

5.) 24 Jun 2021 19:52:46
He is a right footed but has played LCB in the past mate.

6.) 25 Jun 2021 06:34:31
Our defensive stats were really good last season so I’m not sure why we’ve just spunked another £50m on a CB when we quite obviously need a backup Lb and a RB as it looks like Bellerin could be on his way. Then we have the midfield to address too and perhaps a Forward if Lacca leaves.

I just think it’s madness as we’ve very limited funds.

Let’s hope this is a gamble that pays off for us.

7.) 25 Jun 2021 10:01:19
We don't know the funds that Arsenal have available. don't believe all the talk people say on here about what they think Arsenals budget is, its all guess work. It'll be an interesting window and early signs seem decent. I still think there is a surprise waiting though.

8.) 25 Jun 2021 13:54:15
Very true JB very true. The only worrying thing for me is that we don’t address the blatantly obvious positions we need. Just like Wenger did with his love for not buying a DM 🙄

Fingers crossed tho mate.



30 Aug 2016 10:11:25
Ed can you enlighten me on these rumours that serge Gnabry will be going on loan before making a permanent move to B Munich?

Is this true?

God I hope not, looks a real prospect.


{Ed001's Note - he was certainly made available for loan, no idea about any permanent move.}

1.) 30 Aug 2016 11:37:56
Ok ed thank you very much

I don't mind us loaning him out but to get rid of him would be idiotic.

2.) 30 Aug 2016 11:39:27
Apparently arsene wants him to stay, but yeah he'll sign for Munich and go out on loan.

3.) 30 Aug 2016 12:09:24
He's out of contract at the end of season.

4.) 30 Aug 2016 13:24:10
I don't get why we let our players contracts run down to the last year before we offer up.

5.) 30 Aug 2016 15:15:20
Jegooner whilst I agree with you there are some who'd moan if we offered him a deal whilst injured.

6.) 30 Aug 2016 15:15:20
Jegooner whilst I agree with you there are some who'd moan if we offered him a deal whilst injured.

7.) 30 Aug 2016 17:13:03
Great point D.

8.) 30 Aug 2016 20:18:30
How do you know we didn't offer him a deal?

Don't you want players to earn contracts?

9.) 30 Aug 2016 21:34:34
what a stupid question sy4 ofcourse I want players to earn there contracts, the fact he was probably our most talented youngster and has the potential to be a absolute class that for me would have gotten him a new contract.

10.) 30 Aug 2016 21:40:20
I'm sure Arsenal have had an offer on the table for a while. You can't force a player to sign though and it sounds like he wants to leave.

{Ed041's Note - If wenger wanted to develop him so much he wouldn't of sent him to Pulis

11.) 30 Aug 2016 22:34:47
Jep, not really aimed at you buddy although I could see why you reply.

1 day we moan we give away contracts - then moan we don't

1 day we moan Wenger is not ruthless - the next we do the opposite

We moan that we run the club like a business and believe that such a business would let players run down contracts by mistake or oversight

We are a funny bunch.

12.) 30 Aug 2016 23:57:12
Too true mate too true.

What do you make of it sy4? (Gnabry deal)

13.) 31 Aug 2016 07:17:00
I want to see him in our kit playing in the Cups plus on the bench. I really like him.

If the deal is to loan him out for 6 months do he comes home ready for the home stretch - I am on board

I would like him to extend his contract.



23 Jul 2016 12:58:36
Hi eds
Wondering if I can prize abit of info out of you guys.

First of all have Arsenal got any interest in Muniain from Bilbao? I heard a little whisper that's all.


Any truth in these reports about Mahrez to Arsenal?

Thanks eds, keep up the good work :)


{Ed001's Note - interested in both, yes. I would not hold my breath on either though. Both have said they would like to stay put, though they could have been just saying it, I believe they meant it.}

1.) 23 Jul 2016 13:32:38
Is there anyone you believe are likely to come? Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - not really, sorry.}

2.) 23 Jul 2016 14:12:31
Is Muniain not one of the players caught up in that whole De Gea scandal from before the euros? I know that all died down very quickly but still.

3.) 23 Jul 2016 15:05:32
Lets hope arsene gets his wallet out aye

Thanks ed :)




10 Jul 2016 21:57:06
Hey eds,

Are there any updates on the CB front?

Would love for us to pick up a solid Italian no nonsense defender (someone who thrives on defending)

Thanks in advance ed :)


{Ed001's Note - other than the Rob Holding move seems to have stalled, while his club and himself look over other offers, nothing new. I can only think Wenger is very sure Holding will join.}

1.) 11 Jul 2016 17:45:45
Ok ed thanks for the insight 👍🏻.

{Ed001's Note - you are welcome mate.}

2.) 11 Jul 2016 22:35:04
What about Koulibaly? Any interest?

{Ed018's Note - I don't believe there is. It looked like he was close to joining Chelsea last I heard}



07 Jun 2016 21:34:40
Hi eds, wondering if you could help.
As we're going in for vardy at 20m and at 29 I was wondering if you knew what it would cost to prize away Javier Hernandez?

Thanks in advance ed.


{Ed025's Note - around £15m i would expect je..

1.) 07 Jun 2016 21:57:51
Thanks for the quick response ed 👍🏻

Who would you rather out of those two?


{Ed025's Note - i like both even though they are totally different je, if i could only have one then chicarito..he would score a hatful of goals for arsenal i believe mate..

2.) 07 Jun 2016 22:15:01
Agreed ed, I've always thought he'd fit in so perfectly for us when he was at Utd with his intelligent movement.

If it was down to a hatful of players then javier Hernandez would be in the mix surely.

3.) 07 Jun 2016 22:29:28
Can't argue with that Ed - can we make it happen now? :)

Did you have any joy with the target update for the mighty Arsenal?


{Ed025's Note - i think he would jump at the chance SY but its whether arsene wants him, im hoping ED002 will be back shortly and sort them updates mate..

Get in there! Superb performance from our boyz.
Played with absolute passion and desire with 100% effort from every player, a welcomed sight. For the first time this season we really did look like a team with chemistry rather than a bunch of individuals.
Well played Mikel and well played lads.
Hard to single out players for praise but a special mention for big Tommy, he’s been superb since he’s come in to the team, solid player n reads the game exceptionally well Ramsdale too (who I really wasn’t sure on) has seemed to sure-up the defence with his commanding of the box, constantly talking to the defence, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by him so keep it up Rambo!
Also Auba led the line brilliantly constantly chasing the ball n getting his goal.

Let this be a turning point n build a great team chemistry which will only bring good things back to The Arsenal

All in all Come On You Gunners ❤️?.




03 Aug 2021 17:19:34
Absolutely gutted to hear Xhaka’s on the brink of signing a contract extension : (
This club is hopeless
We buy a young defender with great potential for a lot of money (Saliba £30m) and treat him like trash by sending him here there n everywhere on loan before even giving him a chance at the club he signed for. His values decreased because of these actions taken by Arteta and the club but yet they can’t swallow a bid £5m less than the asking price for Xhaka, even though we’re desperate to get players of the books. Now he’s signing a contract extension n we'll be stuck with the backwards/ sideways passing clown for a few more seasons.

Arteta is not filling me with confidence for the season ahead that’s fo sure! At least we’ll be back in the stadium soon so let the voices be heard!


1.) 03 Aug 2021 17:42:02
I agree, xhaka has been the stalwart of our absence from the top 4. Let him go for free if we must just let him go.

2.) 03 Aug 2021 19:04:28
Couldn't agree more, not even the goals of Auba, the record shattering fee of Pepe or the brilliance of last seasons fab 4 has been enough to overcome the Xhaka effect 😀😎😊😆

If he stays, he stays and we have little choice but to accept that is the way of it.

3.) 03 Aug 2021 19:34:52
Well, Xhaka was a major contributing factor to the last two managers losing their job. Obviously Arteta either thinks he is better than those managers, or he fancies being out of work for Christmas. You have been warned.

4.) 03 Aug 2021 20:12:15
The two big consistencies all 3 managers share are their refusal to change what consistently continues to fails and of course Xhaka, Epping mate.
We must make sure our next manager whenever he comes is capable of adapting to what is rather than totally set in his ways regardless of anything.

5.) 03 Aug 2021 20:33:05
So we sell the wrong keeper, add a 50m centre back that we really didn’t need, sign cover for left back and a young midfielder who will now only get a game if a partey or a Granit are out. What a deflating time we are in.

Then that we haven’t really added any spark upfront and although not great players - we don’t replace Ode or Dani.

The club is a joke and the quicker we replace the hierarchy and manager the better.

Still got Willian, Bellerin, Elneny, Laca, Cedric, AMN, Willock, Reiss and now no doubt offer Granit a contract that means we are stuck with him. Has Kola gone?

Will our team actually be any different to the team from last season? Will we still force the team to play out from the back, play painfully slow football, players out of position, favouritism and not playing to our most expensive players strength.

Arteta - come on man.

6.) 03 Aug 2021 21:38:04
Love this post. Encapsulates how this team makes you feel defeated. I'm with you on this SY mate. Unfortunately with our current owners and the general approach of our football club, I see us finishing top 6 and that keeping Arteta in his job.

It's hard to understand if we are on the same path as klopps 4 year build at Liverpool or in a car with no air bags, failed breaks heading towards a dead end at full speed.

Time will tell.

7.) 03 Aug 2021 21:39:00
Whinge, whinge and whinge

Get a grip.

Truth hurts Mal doesn’t it lol

Good post from SY.

{Ed014's Note - I thought so! 😂😂

11.) 03 Aug 2021 22:16:57
Banbury we have a lot to be thankful for

We are still alive and kicking and the raver is still taking bollox

There’s only so many negative posts I can take before I start smoking again.

12.) 03 Aug 2021 22:54:26
I'm with you 100% there Mary, we all have so much to be grateful for mate.
Football is a distraction from the really important things in life.

13.) 03 Aug 2021 23:00:35
Exactly Vicky, the window is open for another month

Why should we give players away for nothing

Let’s see what happens and give Mikel till Christmas.

14.) 03 Aug 2021 23:01:09
Mal I’m not having you say all they do is “ whinge” it’s not true they also moan a lot as well 🤣.

15.) 04 Aug 2021 00:15:15
Disclaimer, I'm not a big fan of Xhaka, but here's some perspective.
Last season, Xhaka had the highest number of passes into the final third in the entire league. He finished 5th in the league in terms of progressive passes and a couple seasons before that he was 1st. When he's on the pitch, Arsenal score more goals than they concede.

Is he a great player? No. Makes too many high profile mistakes and can't tackle without a yellow card attached to save his life. But let's not pretend that he is some villain standing in the way of our top 4 finish. The problems at Arsenal run a lot deeper.



05 Jul 2021 10:42:27
Morning Gooners

Looks like Villa are coming back with another bid for ESR, wondering what amount would tempt you to sell? £40m/ £50m?


1.) 05 Jul 2021 11:49:40
Unless it's an absolutely obscene amount then I wouldn't sell at all. He's Arsenal future and plays we so much desire. He loves the club, he loves that he's playing 1st team football and wants to stay. Arsenal need to get that new contract signed and build a team around him like they have and will continue to do with Saka.

2.) 05 Jul 2021 11:18:25
I think selling at any price sends the worst message possible. We are trying to rebuild, impossible to entice players if we sell our best players now. ESR has been talked about so much the past 7 months, selling him would destroy any threat of ambition.

3.) 05 Jul 2021 12:50:36
It will be heartbreaking if one of our own is sold, unless it is his wish of course. I could accept that. The rumours keep rumbling on and it's getting more than a little concerning. Would Arsenal sell him while a new contract is on the table? I would be devastated if they did. ! @#$!

4.) 05 Jul 2021 12:55:28
It’s an interesting one because if we are to rely on developing youth then we need to give them a chance but that youth needs to play with leaders and winners so we can compete. To do that we need to generate funds which in a self sufficient model means we sell some young stars to fund acquisitions….

At 50m I’d say sell and re-invest. At 30m I’d say keep him as you will struggle to improve on him for that amount of money and wage he’s on.

This surely was the conundrum for Wenger when we moved to the new stadium with Debt to repay and “new money” football clubs to compete with….

5.) 05 Jul 2021 12:57:29
Hit the nail on the head Lefty mate.
Sally - don't panic. He's openly said that he wants to stay he'll sign a new contract. Watch this space.

6.) 05 Jul 2021 13:40:36
It would be a huge mistake selling ERS as fans who are already disheartened would lose even more heart if any if ESR Martinelli Saka or Teirny were allowed to go now.

At this moment in time retaining the fab 4 is more important than any signings we could realistically make.

7.) 05 Jul 2021 15:45:53
And the good thing is ( and a move in the right direction ) three of them are on long term deals. ESR is staycationing in Frinton or Skegness at Butlins or Pontins probably.

Let him enjoy the arcades and dodgems and he`ll sign COYG Irrational but Villa irritating me at the moment.

{Ed014's Note - the first team are due back for preseason on the 7th July so sure they’ll have chance to discuss stuff with him then.

They have a pretty hectic preseason too

Wednesday, July 7 - Men’s first team return to London Colney

8.) 05 Jul 2021 15:49:47
I’m no John Cena but the feeling I’m getting here is that most think he’s pretty much priceless to us.
In some way I do agree with you because it’s “the love story” when a junior gunner makes his way through the academy to be in the first 11 and his relationship with other academy players breaking/ broken through can only be a plus too.
But £40m for someone who is pretty much only had half a season in the 1st team and going on merit of potential is quite a sum of money.
The thing is is that he CAN be replaced with a similar fee if not less, it’s just the passion for the club which he has is priceless to me. Well let’s if he has that passion n signs the contract extension with no drama ✍🏻❤️🤍.

9.) 05 Jul 2021 17:49:57
For me Je it's about not being seen to go backwards by letting any of our handful of players who deliver 9/ 10 times go.

Adding to those 4 is obviously never a bad thing but I think by far the most important thing is don't give fans yet another reason to throw in thier Arsenal towel and give it all up as a lost cause.

10.) 05 Jul 2021 18:03:26
ESR cannot be sold for any amount in my opinion. Say the club accepts a £50m bid, who is there that could be bought for that amount with the potential longevity and talent that Smith-Rowe has? That's all it comes down to. There is no point in selling a player like him.

11.) 05 Jul 2021 18:37:53
Totally agree Akie, even if we spent 100m replacing ERS, what 100m player is realistically going to want to join us right now?

We currently have very little on the competitive front to offer top players, no champions league football no obvious title challenging credentials to attract highly rated ambitious players with.

We need to up our standing in the game before we can even think about attracting top players again.

12.) 05 Jul 2021 18:52:04
Grealish is valued at 71 m euros. Smith Rowe should be valued at least the same amount, but should NOT be sold at any price.

13.) 05 Jul 2021 19:34:44
Another good reason not to sell to Villa is that Arsenal Villa Everton and Leeds are all in that bunch of want to be clubs looking to find a way into the top 5 again so strengthening a club at our own level while weakening ourselves would show we really had lost all ambition of any kind.

The league cup winners place now goes into the awful European C competition and only 5th place and FA cup winners now go into the once dreaded Europa league B competition.

14.) 05 Jul 2021 20:29:19
We can ask Grealish for ESR + 15-20M; With this deal, we have a better replacement and can buy another youngster for a lesser money! Just a thought, but I don’t think it’s going to happen.

{Ed002's Note - Not a chance.}

15.) 05 Jul 2021 21:17:13
Ed is Villa looking to sell Grealish or someone else with their persistence in ESR or are they building a squad with strength in depth, sort of like England :) ?

{Ed002's Note - They are aware that there will be an offer for Grealish.}

16.) 05 Jul 2021 22:57:24
Unless ESR wanted to go, selling him now, at any price would be a disaster IMO. We have had thousands of youngsters on our books over the recent decades who never made it with us, and many who never made it with anyone. The success rate is extremely low. So when you finally get someone come through the ranks who looks like they will be a very good player, you need to give them every chance to make it, and not flog them before they get that chance. It would send such a negative message to both our youth set up, and our fans. If ESR is a flash in the pan, or doesn’t quite live up to early promise, then we have missed out on 30-40 million, but if he does continue to build on last years performance, then 40 million will barely buy one leg!

17.) 06 Jul 2021 12:30:55
We need Welsh to make this a balanced debate.

18.) 06 Jul 2021 15:47:54
Maybe we could swap ESR for Aaron Ramsey Eden 🌝😎😄😂😁 that would Make Welsh really happy mate.

19.) 06 Jul 2021 19:19:52
I would keep him, but 80m would be acceptable. Why not overprice our young stars, we paid 70m for Pepe.

20.) 06 Jul 2021 17:15:23
Can you imagine Utd, City, Liverpool selling one of their star English youngsters to Villa?! The fact this is being discussed in the media and by us shows how far we've fallen.

21.) 07 Jul 2021 08:44:25
That's true Glen but as long as we don't sell (which I don't see happening at all) then at least it means we aren't going backwards willingly.



10 Dec 2019 10:35:09
Torriera was pivotal last night. Had a great game! Motm for me 👍🏻.


1.) 11 Dec 2019 00:10:22
Yeah, I can't understand why he wasn't playing every game this season. Only thing is whether he should be pushing as far forward as often, and taking those long shots. Reminds me of flamini a bit, but has better control but less vocal.



09 Jul 2019 17:55:34
With our defence as bad as it is. it got me thinking.

In the youth setup throughout the club. Do the coach’s in training and games not try building a proper partnership (telepathic almost) between two or three CB’s?

I mean I dunno for me it seems logical to be building a young solid partnership from within, training them and playing them together always, till they become 1 n then bleed them into the 1st team together, rather than loaning them out all the time.

Like for me now I’d be working outa Bielik, Holding (I know he’s been injured) and Mav trying to build a formidable partnership.


1.) 09 Jul 2019 19:16:31
Mate my stepson (16 now) was at Arsenal from 5 until 11, one of the reasons he left is because the arsenal youth do not feel part of the club! Under Liam Brady they would get tickets for the games, go on tour and players would visit them. After Brady left this all stopped. They train in Walthamstow, they never get invited to games and never met a single player in the last 3 years he was there. Unfortunately the spuds poached him for a while after and it’s a very different story, I hate to say.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 19:24:48
Not good 733 mate.

3.) 09 Jul 2019 19:31:02
It’s ok g69 he left them as well and is doing very well somewhere else.

4.) 09 Jul 2019 20:29:13
Good stuff 373, my nieces son has just singed a professional contract with Peterborough, he's 18.
Hopefully it's just a beginning for him and he will move up the leagues, he's a DM so there is a real chance he could be a gooner one day, according to Sky his already had his Arsenal medical, twice:-)

Don’t question my support for this club 337 just because of a rant mate, it obviously shows my passion for the club. I love The Arsenal I don’t just support them. I’m not a season ticket holder so I pay a lot of money to go watch Arsenal play every season.
I guess with your overwhelming support you were sat there at the final whistle against Brentford clapping our club on were you? Embarrassing if so!
If your happy with mediocrity mate then good for you but I’m not n nor are others on here, we want what’s best fir the club and right now Arsenal are unidentifiable.

Oh and I googled support mate…
No I’m not a scaffold but yes I’ve pumped a lot of money into Arsenal over the years so there’s some support for ya fella 👍🏻

Onwards n upwards

I don’t get what people have seen in Odegaard to be happy with this signing. All he did was push ESR out of position because MA has a man crush on him. Slows the game down just as much a Granite does. No improvement in what we already had in our very own gunner Joe Willock, Joe’s better in my opinion.
So we waste £50m on White (who we didn’t need) and waste £30m on MO (who’s no improvement in what we had) we can’t even shift out players that we don’t want n who don’t want to be here!
What a shambles of a window this has been.
Edu, Arteta and anyone else that has a say in transfers are an absolute joke! Get them out ASAP!

Im sorry for the negative post but I don’t see any change from the mediocrity we’ve been watching for years, in fact we’re getting worse!

I love Arsenal to death but I’m seriously hating the way this club is being ruined by inept people who are punching well above there weight! ☹️.

Watched him against PSG on the wkend there and he was superb. Great defender from what I’ve seen he’s miles ahead of Ben White in my opinion. Shame he'll probably never play for us because he’s going to be a world beater.

I’ve witnessed other posters on here too that have been ridiculed just because they have a different view. A debate is great and banter is what this sites about but sometimes it’s beyond that.

I remember the days Malaga (not sure if it’s you Mal) I remember being in Rome, poolside living the dream reading his rumour about Hazard being seen having grub with Wenger to then watch him join the then “champions of Europe” ? where’s all those mouthwatering rumours gone? ? Dags n his jokes are sorely missed as are Derby, Steve and many others, hope your all good wherever you are ✌?

Still an awesome site tho with great posts and the Ed’s inputs are priceless!

Onwards n upwards COYG ❤️?.
