Partey isn’t done yet - I’d be amazed if we were to get him.


1.) 14 Oct 2020 10:09:55
Are you not amazed?!?!



05 Oct 2020 10:38:57
Guendozy and Torriera gone then, does this mean a midfielder coming in?


{Ed002's Note - There is a chance. Arsenal enquired after Maxime Lopez (but were told he is heading elsewhere) and Morgan Sanson (but wanted a loan exchange with Guendouzi and/or Saliba) and Marseille would not consider that unless there was an obligation to buy and Thauvin was sold. Arsenal have asked again about Amadou Diawara but I am not sure that there is sufficient time to do anything. Later it may become clearer.}

Ed that’s great info to have at hand with things changing so quickly.
Greatly appreciated I hope you have the time to respond when available throughout the day and keep us informed. ✌️.

2.) 05 Oct 2020 13:21:39
Great insight. Thanks Ed. Still shambolic but I’d be happy with Diawara.

Do we really need Odegaard?


1.) 22 Jan 2021 14:46:49
Soon see mate.

2.) 22 Jan 2021 15:08:08
We definitely need a capable AM to rotate with ESR. If he were to get injured and our 'next best' player in that position was Willian then we'd be truly ruined.

3.) 22 Jan 2021 17:06:31
We certainly need creativity, back up, competition and options.

4.) 23 Jan 2021 09:54:43
I only ask because he wants regular football hence his move, I certainly wouldn’t demote Smith Rowe what would be the point? , we’ve just found a rhythm.



14 Jan 2021 19:10:11
No KT?


1.) 14 Jan 2021 19:49:57
He is injured, muscle soreness . I’m happy if they rest him with his injury record he should only play if 100%.

2.) 15 Jan 2021 07:46:52
Yep agreed 337, sensible move but boy we missed him.



07 Jan 2021 18:04:10
Have I just read we are getting a 120 million £ loan



{Ed047's Note - yes mate, it’s a short term loan repayable in May under the Corporate financing as part of the governments assistance re COVID.

It’s on the Arsenal web page.

1.) 07 Jan 2021 18:47:11
Will this affect us buying anyone in this window? We'd look even worse (if possible) as a club if we did when we're taking the governments loan.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal have made huge mistakes with their recruitment and have already gambled future income they don’t have. The club continues to be a shambles and they need to start acting professionally, address their problems and balance their books.}

2.) 07 Jan 2021 18:54:18
Although this seems to be getting more media attention than the £175m that Spurs received.

3.) 07 Jan 2021 18:54:25
Just what the county needs, an abysmally run football club that pays extortionate wages to old players and agents for no justifiable reason gets 140 million bail out that will no doubt be used to be used to pay yet more agent fees and inflated wages. While so many of its citizens rely on charity food banks to feed to them and their children because through no fault of their own they are suddenly faced with an overnight 20% pay cut in their already minimum wage.

Whoever in government thought this was a wise use of public money?

4.) 07 Jan 2021 19:01:46
Is this because Ozil won’t be paying the wage of Gunnersaurus now that he’s leaving?

All eyes will be on us and what we buy / don’t buy. Painful.

5.) 07 Jan 2021 19:15:13
It's embarrassing and shows how far the club fallen and how badly it has been run since Kroenke became involved.

6.) 07 Jan 2021 19:31:54
Hold fire you lot, firstly if any of you are in business like me atm and have had your right to earn a living taken away by this horrible C.V. you’d realise there is no shame in some support, the wages and rents still need to be paid with a fraction revenue coming in. A loan is a stop gap they’re not taking a handout.

I’m currently paying £12500 per month out and my retail premises have been closed and I’ve not had a single penny in help as yet but will need some soon if this carries on. Hopefully all of you criticising never have these running costs over your heads, and if any of you are in jobs and have been furloughed remember where that money comes from to keep food on your tables.

{Ed047's Note - it’s a nightmare for everyone mate and I truly hope you come out the other side with everything you’ve worked for in tact.

7.) 07 Jan 2021 19:49:01
337 I hope you come through this

BUT I don’t think you can compare your business with the MULTI million pound business at Arsenal, they have run the club in such a poor way from contracts running down to wages paid to being poor in the transfer market, I’d probably think you wouldn’t want them touching your business with a barge pole.

8.) 07 Jan 2021 19:56:53
I am all for supporting individuals and businesses through this awful time 373 mate, but football clubs who spend millions on transfers abd in agents fees?
What next multi millionaire pop stars who've had concepts cancelled and are struggling to fund thier next Ferrari?

9.) 07 Jan 2021 19:45:28
Thanks Ed, there are people much worse off I know and some that have lost lives but everything has to be taken in context and even football clubs don’t have a bottomless pot of money to sustain this amount of time without normal revenue coming in.

Sorry for the rant but we’ve all been lining the pockets of the supermarkets since last March without question and they’ve had record profits and GOVERNMENT HELP and we all still load up weekly without moaning at them.

{Ed047's Note - no need to apologise mate, it’s a shit show all around.

10.) 07 Jan 2021 20:14:24
I suppose I’m lucky I’m retired.

11.) 07 Jan 2021 21:22:31
337 - I’m sorry.

I have no problem with business and workers getting help. I’ve seen friends lose jobs, I’ve had a huge longterm pay cut and lots of other things but I know how lucky I am. I’m regularly thinking of the small traders who rely on businesses to slend money in surrounding areas etc etc. Hope you are well and come thru this. I was having a little joke about the timing - insensitive and football is no different and there’s nothing wrong with government support.

12.) 07 Jan 2021 21:44:30
It's amazing really because in the first lock down Liverpool and Spurs were shamed into taking their employees off furlough? Fast forward 10 months and Arsenal want £140 million of taxpayers money and that's OK?
Absolutely no class left at the club.

13.) 07 Jan 2021 22:00:27
G62 it’s a loan! And will probably be from a bank not the treasury.

{Ed047's Note - it’s from the Bank of England with a reduced interest rate repayable in May this year as part of the COVID corporate financing facility which is open to companies that fit the criteria as below;

The CCFF is designed to provide short-term finance at commercial rates during the pandemic to companies that have strong investment ratings and which make significant contributions to the British economy.

14.) 07 Jan 2021 22:11:42
Thanks for clarifying Ed you’re must just a pretty face after all 😂.

{Ed047's Note - you’re welcome and that may be stretching it a little! 🤣

15.) 07 Jan 2021 22:58:03
No need to apologise to me guys like I said, sorry for the rant, it’s just I think most clubs in the prem will actually end up taking a temporary loan if it’s interest free or low interest they’d be mad not to.

Top level football is only able to pay extortionate wages and fees because of the revenue this sport we all love generates, it’s not that I feel sorry for the clubs I was just pointing out that they have taken a “ loan” not a bail out and that they also have lost revenue in the C.V. and a loan is just to fill the gap until we beat it.



02 Jan 2021 23:58:49
Good result

3 home games to come Newcastle twice and then Palace before the break - nothing less than 3 wins please.


1.) 04 Jan 2021 05:12:04
I don't think Palace
Will be an easy side to beat they always do well against us.



26 Dec 2020 17:07:10
Just been thinking about the stat - it’s the worst start since 1975, surely it’s even worse than that seeing as it’s 3points for a win, we’d be on 10 points I’d we had 2 points for a win .

Lose today and we are in deep deep trouble.

I agree Glenn, did he forget we are holders and who we were playing? Arrogance in his selection I think?

Well for those who backed Pepe from the off need to reconsider, I said from the off he was a bad buy and it’s proving so . Surely he has to go in the Summer, all he’s good for is the Europa League and that’s just the group stages . We are lucky we have talented youngsters IMO . I hope for MA’s sake the 7 changes are justified come 10pm Tuesday night.

Of course it is Mally boy, it’s good habits

Clean sheets - that’s good

PEA scoring - that’s good

Consistent in team selection- signs are there now

Southampton Man U Wolves Villa Leeds M City Leicester

If we pick up 12 points we have done well.

Just to keep our feet on the ground, we have had quite an easy run of fixtures - the next 6 will show us any improvement if any.
