Chambers gone

Thank god.


1.) 27 Jan 2022 20:36:54
Didn't even hear rumours of this transfer happening. Kinda gives me hope of incomings now. As for Chambers, i am glad he's gone. Never really did much and it's another one of the wage bill.

2.) 27 Jan 2022 20:50:35
Does any one know how much we got.

3.) 27 Jan 2022 20:59:33
Bit harsh - he was a professional and did alright for us. Don’t understand people jumping on players just because they leave.

4.) 27 Jan 2022 21:31:11
Would of rather kept chambers as back up to Tomi than Cedric. good luck to the lad, always professional and did a job when asked.

5.) 27 Jan 2022 22:21:37
We got 2m for him.

6.) 27 Jan 2022 22:52:15
Yep better than Cedric all day long But no one wants to buy Cedric I guess - figure that one out we’re left with the worse player hmmmm! COYG.

7.) 28 Jan 2022 10:24:14
Must admit I really don't get the "thank god" comment.

I understand he was never a regular starter, but he always gave his best for the club, never embarrassed us, never complained, always played with a smile, and seemed to always get us out of a hole when he was called upon during injuries etc.

and much prefer him to Cedric.

wish him all the best at the villa, I'm not sure he will get much more playing time tho, but deserves respect from arsenal fans surely.

8.) 28 Jan 2022 12:34:41
Well I cannot say that I am dissapointed .

9.) 28 Jan 2022 18:39:42
I thought he was a good guy, always available, always tried his best and didn't cause problems. I'm going to miss him in the squad.

10.) 28 Jan 2022 20:24:05
People do need to understand teams need a squad? Would I want him starting away to Man City. No, but then again whoever we pick we would lose anyway. As much as we would all like a squad of 22 world class players, it ain’t going to happen. Even if we were some kind of super rich club, for me, Any player not in the starting XI, by definition is not world class, as if they were they would be in the starting XI, or they are world class in their own mind, but are now majorly peed off and will quickly become troublesome when not picked. I think you need a squad of about 15 top top players, with other good players to back them up. Chambers and Elneny fit that template. They are not world class, but good players who know their place. No toys being thrown out the pram when not picked, but professional to the best of their ability when played. So am I happy seeing a squad that still contains Xhaka and PEA while Chambers goes, absolutely not.

11.) 28 Jan 2022 22:12:51
Good luck to Chambers at Villa he only going ever be a a bit part player for us and has never really nailed down a primary position between RB and CB, jack of of all master of none situation which happens to a lot of players really. A good pro sure but we have held onto these types of players for too long in my view to detriment of us and the player really so time to move on and free up space and wages. If Saliba comes back (hope he is given a proper chance as being doing well at Marsille) we have 4 Cb's anyway so we covered there with Holding, White and Gabby assuming Mari will be sold at season end.

So EK is preparing another bid, 2 billion, if correct still not enough IMO. I think he has to be 2.5 billion and above to tempt the Americans.


1.) 09 Jun 2021 15:34:40
You just tagged on half a billion like it's nothing. Do you realise what half a billion actually is.

2.) 09 Jun 2021 20:08:26
Oh dear understand it in the context of the situation which you clearly don’t - to us it’s huge but the new offer won’t even raise an eyebrow on the Americans forehead . Yes to us it’s huge to a billionaire who has said “ we don’t need the money “ it’s nothing.

3.) 10 Jun 2021 00:12:47
Quick google search says that Arsenal are valued roughly around $2.8bn so I imagine the owners would want more than that.

4.) 10 Jun 2021 08:09:19
That’s right fuser which is why the yanks would want something approaching 3 billion . EK is way off the mark.

5.) 10 Jun 2021 15:09:17
It’s great to want someone who is passionate about your club being the owner but is he a realistic prospect? Spotify is only worth £3bn itself, so without another backer alongside EK I don’t see it as being realistic.

6.) 10 Jun 2021 21:16:37
Spotify is worth $46bn.

7.) 11 Jun 2021 13:26:54
It doesn't matter how rich or poor you are half a billion is a huge difference. I understand the original statement. Also $2.8 billion dollars is just under £2 billion pounds sterling as of this morning, if you can't grasp basic currency, don't band around fictitious figures.

8.) 11 Jun 2021 14:08:15
They aren't going to sell at all. Arsenal fc makes them money. Its a fairy tale that is never going to happen.



06 Apr 2021 11:15:12
Talk of Odegaard being offered out to other PL clubs this Summer, let’s hope he’s that happy with us he stays.


{Ed002's Note - Arsenal have no option to buy him.

Martin Odegaard (RW/AM) Arsenal beat Real Sociedad to a loan in January but have no option to buy. Real Madrid are happy to include him on a lengthy list of players that they are open to selling or including in exchanges in the summer - and that may suit Seville who have a player that Real Madrid are showing an interest in. Ideally Real Madrid would like an auction for him but will seek €40M for a cash sale. Arsenal would consider him on a permanent deal but it depends on finances which are tight.}

1.) 07 Apr 2021 20:20:25
If he has good options it's difficult to think why he would want to be at Arsenal next season.

Reasons staying would be game time he gets at Arsenal.

Reasons for not staying are it's highly likely we won't be playing European football next season plus there is nothing apart from wishful thinking to argue Arsenal will be any different next season under Arteta than they were last season or are this season under Arteta.

I don't know the lad and maybe there are reasons I'm not aware of why he would want to be at Arsenal next season but there certainly isn't any obvious reason to think he would.



05 Oct 2020 19:10:57
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.}

1.) 05 Oct 2020 11:55:01
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.

I think we will end up with no one and it shouldn’t be a surprise.


1.) 27 Jan 2022 19:26:48
We have done exactly what has been needed for a long time, cleared the decks. Yes we still have a few lingering around but these include players we bought for buying sake. I’m glad (/ assuming) we are assessing the signings more and it really does leave me optimistic for the summer. European football is still a possibility which would mean a more attractive position to sign better calibre of players. And who knows we may unearth another gem in the coming months.

2.) 27 Jan 2022 20:10:11
We’ve done absolutely nothing.

3.) 27 Jan 2022 20:49:23
A keeper in technical for the summer.

4.) 28 Jan 2022 01:42:35
In the summer we signed a few players when we all new we had to sell first and then buy. I'm sure I read that we needed to clear the decks come January otherwise we would be in great trouble. The club new they would not be able to secure the signing from florentina. I have not seen anything that the player has shown any interest in joining us yet we carried on our pursuit and not having any backup plan I mean come on.? De ja vu. For me we are in a better position than I thought we would be in at the start of the season. Its not where I would like us to be but its better then I expected hopefully more improvements to come in summer and hopefully back in champs league. Come on u gunners. Kronkeout.



23 Jan 2022 19:22:47
Arteta says we lack quality in attack

OMG I’ve been saying that since September, unbelievable bloke

We are only fighting for 4th because the rest around us are equally as bad

I’ve heard he is being offered another deal?

Any truth in the rumour?


1.) 23 Jan 2022 19:52:12
I don’t think he’s majorly our issue Ox. He has some lack of know how yes. In particular, he’s sticking out games with Lacazette as the striker even when he’s clearly not impacting games as he did with Auba.

Teams are starting to work us out, especially Martinelli and Saka, defenders are doubling up on them killing off the creativity. We’re getting no joke out of the miss to compensate.

I also think he should talk out more to protect the players against the number of cards we’re getting and lack of against us, even if it means taking a fine or two himself it will benefit him in the end. Props to Paddy in for making an effort to just that following their game against Liverpool today. Some people might think we’re careless or deserve the cards and sending off we received but people like to follow the hype.

The secret society or gentlemen’s club of referees is embarrassing at times.

2.) 23 Jan 2022 21:22:19
They've got it in for us they always had it in for us, if it wasn't for for them ?????.

Jose wrote a book about this very subject, but he kept changing the name of the club to hide it's true identity, he so obviously was talking about Arsenal all the time.

3.) 24 Jan 2022 13:30:08
Apart from the top 3 nobody else has a goal average of more than plus 10 and that’s West Ham. says it all really.



23 Jan 2022 18:34:46
4th place is still very much up for grabs but we really have to get our act together.


1.) 23 Jan 2022 19:08:50
We are one of 5 who have a realistic chance of taking that 1 place mate, fans of Arsenal United West ham and Spurs will all demand it's their club that gets it.

Wolves fans will be hoping they can sneak in under the radar.



22 Jan 2022 18:36:28
Watched the ‘pool v Arsenal ‘89 title decider on ITV4 this evening, blimey how good was that, was anyone else at the game, best night of my life


Just how bias were the commentators, Pleat and Robson etc, everyone thought the result was a given

But George Graham was too clever for Mr Dalglish

They must have forgotten it was up for grabs.


1.) 22 Jan 2022 19:23:39
I was in Portugal on honeymoon at the time mate, and must confess to being stunned to learn we'd actually pulled off the 2 goal win needed at Anfield to be crowned champions.

2.) 22 Jan 2022 20:36:14
Most amazing night - remember it like yesterday.



20 Jan 2022 21:41:40
Yet another Red.


1.) 20 Jan 2022 23:21:32
It was a huge mistake rushing him back so quickly, act in haste repent at leisure I was told as a kid and it's as true now as it was then, school boy error in my book that one.

2.) 21 Jan 2022 08:56:27
He landed at 12 noon apparently? Crazy.

3.) 21 Jan 2022 09:22:41
Oi leave him alone Banbury, I had a £60 000 bet on a sending off in the last 10 minutes :) COYG.

4.) 21 Jan 2022 09:44:45
Lol ?.

5.) 21 Jan 2022 10:09:10
I must admit Cumbria, that thought had crossed my mind in view of recent revelations.

I'm sure it's just coincidence but all eyes on Arsenal right now but sadly for all the wrong reasons ???.

6.) 21 Jan 2022 13:57:16
?? lucky you Sussex.

7.) 21 Jan 2022 17:44:16
HaHa I`m now jet setting around the world buying boats cars and sending this message from an IP address that doesn`t match where it`s sent from so wasn`t at the game! I`m almost tempted to taunt Raver with the pain at the Lane etc ( I genuinely have forgotten his/ her username ) . I`m in my Aston Martin is Raver still in that Jalopy oh I miss such banter zzzzzzzzz COYG £££££££ Thanks Tomas.

I’m afraid Dags is right, we knew what was coming up and we all know that Xhaka is a HUGE liability, blames lies firmly at the clubs door

Short sightedness at its best.

Lucky if we get 30 million for him

Very lucky.

AMN I’d try to keep as well as Lacca

Saka, the ground would be burnt to the ground if we sold him

Pepe - no doubt Lille will take him back ………. for 5 million.

Then ship a player who we pay £350 k a week and we aren’t even playing him. Sell him at cut price if we have to

No wonder we aren’t in a good financial position.

No one is panicking

This window was the most important for years - reason …. we won’t get a better chance of a top 4 place, currently we won’t be getting 4th . We can’t hit a barn door with a banjo, we are toothless upfront . We are playing Saka to death and rely on him so much .

Finishing in the top 4 is of paramount importance if we are to attract top players . It’s no good shipping players out when you ain’t getting any in .

No one is panicking- we won’t - repeat won’t get a better chance than the one we have now to get into the top 4 . We still have dead wood, we really couldn’t hit a barn door with a bloody banjo . We rely on Saka far too much .

It’s fine shipping these players out but we need top quality in.
