Could we be in for that other Pepe. The defender without a contract. Think that might be amazing in the short term! Two Pepes in one window would be mind blowing! (Btw is it Pepes in plural or Pepi)


{Ed0333's Note - I’m assuming Pep’s

How about "peeps"



30 May 2018 08:47:49
hey eds, do Arsenal have any intereset in Sander Berge this year? Remember there were some rumours last year. Being norwegian, i think that would be cool. he is a really interesting talent.

And what is hapening with max mayer?


{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of and all I know about Meyer is he rejected Liverpool.}

1.) 30 May 2018 11:30:30
Ed001, i know its a long shot but are you aware of the reasons cited for him turning Liverpool down?

{Ed001's Note - no mate sorry.}



17 Aug 2017 18:32:06
Thank you for all your wisdom eds:)

One (some) question to understand the mechanics of transfers and club management. Do you think a Lemar deal would be more likely if we manage to find new clubs for players like Wilshere, Debuchy, Gibbs or Jenkinson? Or if Ox is leaving us?

It seems Arsenal have a to many players we hardly ever use, and probably never will use. These kind of squadplayers should be youngsters, right? Is this a situation we ended up in, since we had a stadium to repay. Seems like we gave out new contracts, instead of replacing with better players. Hence the high wages to some of these players.


{Ed002's Note - No it becomes more likely if the buing club make a serious effort to match the asking price.}

I don’t understand why people keep wishing we would sell auba and laca! They are two top strikers, who will provide lot’s of goals I the future.

People seem to think we have to sell our stars to buy players, that is not true. Arsenal is amongst the top net spenders in Europe.

We should focus on selling players that doesn’t improve our team or signals that they want to run down their contract, players that have a good resell value. Like we did with Iwobi, Walcott, Ox. Auba and Laca wants to win stuff, and want to believe in the project. I believe we should offload kola and chambers in the summer, they are not irreplaceable. This could maybe give us 50 mill or so. And maybe one of the youngsters since we have more than we can.

As long as we improve our game and get within top 4 and maybe win a trophy, this season auba and laca will sign new contracts and that will be great.


1.) 27 Jan 2020 15:35:34
I doubt any Arsenal fans want to sell PEA &/ or Lacazette. The problem is that PEA’s contract ends in one year at the end of this season and Lacazette’s ends in 2 years at the e d if this season. If they won’t extend their desks, then we run the risk of losing them for nothing. Hence £60m would go a long way towards replacing PEA and we may get a similar amount for Lacazette as he is younger and has an additional year on his contract. We have Martinelli and Nketiah coming through and could spend the income from either sale on strengthening the squad.

2.) 27 Jan 2020 18:08:00
Top 4 is almost completely out of the question for this season and we spent more than we could afford last summer so if we want to spend we have to sell, but how we will get 50 million for Chambers and kola is beyond me. Sorry Nor but I do think your glasses have a tint of roses about them mate.

3.) 27 Jan 2020 19:15:05
911 and 62 - have to agree with you. I would never want to sell PEA but I’m nervous about getting Rambo all for him. I’m not that fussed about Laca though - happily sell him and replace with a winger as fed up accommodating PEA and Laca when 2 doesn’t go into 1.

Top 6 is my target and get an early start on next season so we can get moving faster on the solutions rather than wait and then write off next season and £100m!



07 Aug 2019 17:48:54
We declined £30 mill for iwobi according to sky sport. I would take that and use the extra money for a cd and give Nelson and smith-Rowe more games. Could even use the extra money and get Zaha as well.


1.) 07 Aug 2019 18:50:04
Think there waiting for 2nd bid can’t turn that down imo and go buy a cb.

2.) 07 Aug 2019 19:00:04
35 for iwobi plus the 25 we were going to spend on Tierney goes a long way towards buying a certain young CB with a 92 million buyout clause.

3.) 07 Aug 2019 19:12:25
I would be up for that. Don’t forget we presume that the Tierney money is there already and another 30-35 mil to put to a CD then things ain’t so bad. Feel we will do some business still mate.

{Ed047's Note - I was just trying to pronounce your user name when it suddenly hit me what it actually says. I accidentally put your last post on rumours. 🙄

Couldn’t you just go back to Browgun or Sanogo. 😂

Who r ya!

4.) 07 Aug 2019 18:37:42
Yeh I saw that and thought if that's true someone needs sectioning! Both at Everton for bidding it and us for turning it down! The world's gone utterly mental! 10 mil and we would be robbing them, ed25 what's your opinion?

{Ed025's Note - i dont know how true that is eden but if it is i would be disappointed to say the least, this has come right out of left field and although he fits the brands ethos i was hoping for better to be honest mate...but if we can give you back theo then im all for it.. :)

5.) 07 Aug 2019 19:39:34
Ed025 I think you will find in very LARGE print on Theos transfer documents NO RETURNS BACK :-)
He's only 31 and still has so much potential:-)

{Ed025's Note - we will give you £30m for iwobi...but £40m if you take theo back mate..

6.) 07 Aug 2019 20:21:28
Sold as seen mate, the only thing I'm surprised about is after you'd seen why did you buy :-)

7.) 07 Aug 2019 20:17:27
Speaking of Arsenal players with potential. I remember you saying something about Ox and seeing him fulfil it at Liverpool. How's that going G62?

8.) 07 Aug 2019 20:38:50
Well it was going pretty well until his season and a half injury mate, he was a regular in Liverpool midfield and by most Liverpool fans I've talked to accounts doing an excellent job mate.
What can I say I didn't see that tackle coming that put him out for so long back when I predicted big things for him at Liverpool, really should think things through more I guess:-)

9.) 07 Aug 2019 22:00:02
The thing is G62 a good player doesn’t get injured by those tackles 👍 and he plays for rubbishtypool.

10.) 07 Aug 2019 22:14:49
Fair point Sano obviously he's good enough for their midfield but nowhere near the class of Xhaka which is why we got rid :-)

11.) 07 Aug 2019 21:50:53
Haha Ed, Don’t worry mate I’m just a Pépé who are ya Boi now matey . going to smash the league up this year.

{Ed047's Note - let’s hope so!

12.) 07 Aug 2019 22:51:24
Yeah your right g62, let’s just all sulk about that for a bit ahhh. good I’m glad I’m over that 😂.

13.) 07 Aug 2019 23:10:16
G62, being on the treatment table isn't anything new for Ox. You didn't have to be Nostradamus to see that coming.

14.) 07 Aug 2019 23:52:03
True Sharpie but you could say the same of Ramsey Walcott Wilshire Kos Belerin Welbeck Caz Mertesacker Rosicky need I go on? Not all players who are Arsenal injury prone are injury prone away from Arsenal RVP for instance.



30 Jul 2019 14:19:25
I hope we can offload Jenkinson, Elneny and Asano, since they ‘never’ play anyway, and could easily be replaced by youngsters like Nketiah, Nelson, Smith-Rowe and Willock. I hope we can offload Mkhitaryan, Mustafi and Chambers since they’re not settling in to the club properly. Even though they might turn things around I believe we can realistically get some cash for them and replace them with some more suited squad players. I not sure who I would rather play in an important game, Nelson or Mkhitaryan, or Willock or Elneny if I had to choose.


1.) 30 Jul 2019 15:11:20
Nelson or Willock. Show the young guns we believe in them.

2.) 30 Jul 2019 21:46:18
Nelson for Miki simply because Nelson might possibly be a big success at Arsenal while Miki hasn't been and is highly unlikely to be in the future.
Maitland Niles rather than Xhaka for exactly the same reasons.
Manov for Mustafi the same.

There seems little point in blocking young players paths with players who for whatever reason simply have been hits at Arsenal over the last 3 seasons for Xhaka and Mustafi and one and half seasons for Miki.
Let go of what doesn't work and give a chance to what might work doesn't seem like a difficult decision to make to me.



21 Jun 2019 12:13:50
Some serious friendlies we got. Bayern, Real and Barca! Thoughts. Three wounded clubs sort of.


1.) 21 Jun 2019 13:12:22
4 wounded teams.

2.) 22 Jun 2019 13:49:53
We are going to get some beating there hahha.

3.) 22 Jun 2019 14:17:18
Or some good preseason results that gets everyone very excited for the new season Moe, unless of course Real Barcelona and Bayern play dirty by fielding there best 11 against us :-)



05 Jun 2019 09:10:25
As a Norwegian and a Arsenal fan I find it interesting that we could solve our problems with three Norwegian youngsters.

Kristoffer Ajer (21) from Celtic (CB) , on th team of the year in Scottish premier League, huge talent. And huge physical presence with his 1,96m.

Sander Berge (21) , from Gent (CDM) , highly rated talent, wanted by Sevilla among others. Also a speedy and robust guy at 1,93m.

Martin Ødegård (20) , Real Madrid property, played last year for Vitesse. On the team of the year in Eresdivision. For a club that finished 5th. Amazing technique. Well known talent.

Check them out! Thoughts?


1.) 05 Jun 2019 13:47:16
I will bow to your local knowledge Norgunner, but whoever we go for, promising youngsters, and a few players of decent height would certainly be on my list. I am a fan of Torreira, but watching our DM walk out for the final and realise he was virtually the same height as the child who's hand he was holding made me think maybe we need a bit more height and build in the team?

Remember both Liverpool and city focused on improving the attack before they did anything with the defense. Only one and a half year ago van Dijk arrived.

4-3-3 (similar to Liverpool)

New players are welcome at the CB, CM, and winger. I think we need to try and win the ball higher in the pitch. The front three have to rotate between Özil as a inward forward on the wing or behind the duo on top. The CM’s has to play box to box supporting the defense when the fullback rush forward and play the ball faster forward.

Yup! When Liverpool can push out Jorden Ibe and Solanke for the total of 40 mill eur. And we can’t get money for players like Gnabry and Ramsey. And peanuts for player like Hayden, Campbell and Reine-Adelaide It’s insane.

A lot of our defensive problems start higher I the pitch. By strengthening our midfield with technical player who can both win the ball and hold on to it without loosing it, we will relieve the defense of to many tasks. You could see the problem yesterday when we were pushed to far in to our own box. And we couldn’t put enough pressure on city’s defense.

Alexis wasn’t a first team regular in Barcelona before he came to us. So if Suarez can be anything close to that I would be thrilled. (Yeah yeah, I know Alexis was a better player, with more power to his game)

We are not taking a gamble here. we have a net spending of approx. £55 mill if you remove saliba from the equation (approx 80 with) this is pretty much what we have spend the last years. Even though the inflation on what players cost sky rocketing every year. If you check the books available on the Arsenal site you will see that we got more than £150 mill in cash. And no red numbers anywhere. We got a new kit deal worth £60 mill a year. We are considered the seventh most valuable club in the world. We have a lot of young talents coming up through the ranks. We building a new management structure.

Where is the problem?


{Ed002's Note - The first problem is you don’t understand the finances at all. Hopeless.}

I don’t want to be a douchbag. But Jenkinson didn’t play with neither heart or courage. He seemed scared and uncomfortable in the games I saw him.

This was a part of Wengers philosophy and strategy. Everyone is valuable to the club and more equal pay would create less envy. But then they forgot that Elneny, Chambers and Jenkinson really wasn’t that good players.

From what I have read this strategy is out of the window now. But we cannot do anything with the contracts already in place. So we need to hold our breath and be patient change will come over the years.

Thank god we don’t have Woodward as director. From my perspective we want go through what Man United went through.

Wow! Such a group of haters. Neither Klopp or Pep got their first season great. The club obviously want to improve the whole team. However you don’t shop quality players At Costco in bulk (or M&S) . We were one point away from CL last season. I believe Pepe can help us there. If you see the stats on how reliable we were on laca and Aubameyang last season it make sense to bring in more quality up front as well.
