Hi Ed please tell me Arsenal are not looking to buy or loan Diego Costa! Couldn`t find in a search Thanks in Advance COYG.

{Ed002's Note - He is now a free agent but I am not aware of any approach from Arsenal at this time.}

1.) 17 Jan 2022 12:48:38
Hey Edoo2, does juventus have an interest in signing Thomas Partey?

{Ed002's Note - Juventus have a number of DM targets but know that their preferred choice is likely heading elsewhere and others are not looking likely, but I am not aware of any approach for Thomas Partey.}

2.) 17 Jan 2022 13:41:14
Ed sorry to bother you, but has anything changed with Arthur melo?

{Ed002's Note - No, Arsenal still want a loan.}

3.) 17 Jan 2022 13:44:07
Ok cheers, have a nice week.



07 Jan 2022 09:38:15
Hi Ed002 firstly Happy New Year and thanks for the excellent information. Quick question are we interested in buying Tariq Lamptey of Brighton? Did a search but couldn`t find an answer. TIA COYG.

{Ed002's Note - Tariq Lamptey (RB) Brighton do not want to sell Lamptey and whilst Chelsea do not have a buy back option they do have a reasonbly significant sell on clause. Several sides, including Bayern Munich and Spurs (who opted for Emerson Royal instead), who have approached Brighton over recent months have been told he is not for sale.}

1.) 07 Jan 2022 16:30:52
Thanks Ed.



19 Jul 2021 14:58:24
Hi Ed a while ago you mentioned Guido Rodriguez could be available at £25 - £30 mill . In the last month have Arsenal expressed any interest in him? Thanks in advance COYG.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, nothing has changed, Guido Rodriguez (DM) If someone comes up with €75M he will be sold. There is no interest at that price but Arsenal have watched the playerbut without several departures do not need another DM player. It seems very unlikely the player would want the move after only being in Spain since January last year although Real Betis would be open to a sale. A reasonable fee might be €20M-€25M - but that may not be enough for them. He remains a potential option.}

1.) 19 Jul 2021 15:52:29
Thanks Ed.



17 Jul 2021 17:38:08
Medical on 26th July for Ben White! Heard a rumour during Euros that he was going to Vegas with Jack Grealish! What could go wrong lol COYG.

1.) 17 Jul 2021 19:39:22
Johnny will look after them 🖒😎.



01 Jul 2021 09:09:04
Hi Ed I know it was only a week ago you gave info on Locatelli but since then it seems we have lodged an "important bid " according to Sassuolo. Do you know if the bid is close to their asking price and is the player interested in joining us? Thanks in advance COYG.

{Ed002's Note - Manuel Locatelli (DM) Juventus have tried and failed on a number tried to take him from Milan and now Sassuolo without luck with the player saying he wants the move but cannot see how he will get a game in Turin and that is the only issue to resolve. Real Madrid have him on their list of optional targets to Camavinga. Milan would like him back whilst his agent has said Sevilla, Chelsea and Manchester CIty provide options but not as first choice. Arsenal have made an approach to Sassuolo through a third party.}

1.) 01 Jul 2021 10:09:47
We're only 'ahead in the race' so to speak because we're the only team to make a formal offer.

"There is interest from Juventus, we haven't explored all the terms and evaluations but we have an excellent relationship with Juventus so we will continue these talks. It's true that other clubs from abroad are interested, Arsenal are one of these and they are ahead of everyone else because they tabled the only concrete offer we have received so far".

Personally I can't see this going anywhere for us but of course it would be great if did happen. I dread to think what our 'concrete offer' is but no doubt it's nowhere near the asking price.

2.) 01 Jul 2021 11:36:20
HaHa Glenn or an offer nowhere near the asking price plus a pound! I read he wasn`t nailed on for Juve as couldn`t see where he could get a game. Whereas he would for us I guess. Remains to be seen but I`m interested to see if we still are taking the p8ss with low offers ( some would argue prudent in current times ) or have we identified definite targets and gone Boom and offered at least close to the asking price and stop embarrassing us on the world and domestic stage. I`ve long stopped worrying about transfer fees and wages etc and let others worry about it - we`ve all got enough on our plates without worrying about that! Used the word worry too many times! No worries COYG.

3.) 01 Jul 2021 13:22:04
You're not wrong there Sussex mate. My only concern is selling players for the right price, or for any price for that matter. None of the sales are near completion yet with the closes probably being Xhaka to Roma. We really need to offload and we seem to be struggling.

I am pleased with the sort of players that we are being linked with which is awesome but if we don't manage to offload a large portion of players we'll just be overcrowded again.

We seem to be doing business relatively quietly so I'm going to sit back and keep everything crossed that move players on for a good cumulative figure.

Too much time on my hands! Regardless of where we finish and assuming Saliba Tomi and Tierney all ready for next season would you be happy with Gabriel Jesus, Abraham, Bissouma ( approx £130 mill ) and £20 mill on left back cover - with White covering Tomi and Saliba at centre back? If not who? I`d be very happy by the way :) VTH.

1.) 27 Apr 2022 10:24:21
I’d be happy with Jesus and bissouma amd one of Nunez or the Napoli striker (not even going to attempt to spell his name lol) have a great day Sussex.

2.) 27 Apr 2022 11:42:01
A top striker, a young up and coming option, plus Biereth up from the reserves would do me for strikers. Bissouma, a young LB to compete with Tavarez, and a backup GK to replace Leno and I think we'd be sorted.

3.) 27 Apr 2022 12:00:54
We need 2 strikers min and a strong CM to link the play

my Dream List would be 1 of

Main Striker
Jonathan David
Lautaro Martinez
Andre Silva
Karim Benzema (Dare I link him with arsenal again, but if they do get Mpbappe is it a maybe? )

Younger Striker
Darwin Núñez
Alexander Isak
Patson Daka
Victor Osimhen

Centre Mid
James Ward Prowse
Connor Gallagher
Yives Bissomma
Jude Bellingham (Yes I know I am dreaming a little here)

again I know we will need other players like a replacement for Leno etc but these are the 3 positions where I believe we can add some real star quality.

Please don't mock me to much for dreaming haha.

4.) 27 Apr 2022 13:15:00
£70m for Abraham, I’d guess 60-70 for Jesus and 50 for Bissouma? That’s like 190m.

5.) 27 Apr 2022 14:48:24
Not having Abraham doubled in value - fill your boots on the £63 mill buy back clause! £50 mill for him Jesus in last year of contract hearing £35 mill and £45 - £50 mill for Bissouma. Maybe your right though in which case the clubs with deep pockets will buy these players so counts both our clubs out.
Think we will receive some reasonable money for Leno Torreira Guendozy Mari and AMN possibly Xhaka and even Pepe although Bellingham and Benzema Hampshire did make me chuckle! Perhaps throw in Haaland and Mbappe too. Have a great day all VTH.

6.) 27 Apr 2022 19:40:48
I’d be happy with Dennis and Ian.

7.) 27 Apr 2022 21:07:30
Yeah, good list Sussex. Let’s throw in Rafinia to replace Pepe as well. But seriously, Bissouma and a striker is where I want us to splash the cash, if we have any. As for the striker, I have no real preference, although Jesus is suddenly showing he can score. Also a cheaper GK to replace Leno, but who would be happy to be the number 2 (Snigger) .

On that I would be more than happy with Tim Krull, always been a great keeper, and still getting plenty of practice at Norwich. He may not want to step back from first team, but with Norwich going back down, maybe he would be tempted.

8.) 27 Apr 2022 21:08:59
I like the list HamshireG mate. i'd also add-

Armando Broja

Centre Mid:
Konrad Laimer
Boubacar Kamara

I think most on your list are gettable IF we get champions league.

9.) 27 Apr 2022 21:52:06
Sussex the buy back only applies to Chelsea, so in theory Roma could ask 100m for him from Arsenal if Chelsea have no interest in buying him back. 24 goals this season + him being English and PL clubs always having higher prices quoted, I v much doubt Roma would accept 50m.

{Ed014's Note - thank god for that I was worried we might actually try and buy him!

10.) 27 Apr 2022 23:25:03
Yes Fuser I know but don’t think there would be any takers at all for £63 mill. Way too much! Not a fan then Ed ??.

11.) 28 Apr 2022 05:42:12
Strikers jesus broja mirovic from Fulham
Midfielders ward prowse Gallagher neves Phillips from Leeds any one of them would be nice
Defender spence livramento
Goalkeeper back up.

12.) 28 Apr 2022 13:27:19
The error was made not signing Abraham for €35M before the Roma move. He’s an Arsenal fan and even held out for the move but Edu and Arsenal of course didn’t act decisively.
I think paying over the odds now wouldn’t make sense if Gabriel from city could be got for around €35M.

14.) 28 Apr 2022 14:07:19
To be fair Shambo we had Auba and Laca ( how did that work out for us ) . Vlahovic was seen as the answer in January. I have never thought Eddie as a main striker, my heart says yes but head no. Can we afford to give him that run in the team? Maybe he fires us to top 4 and it clicks in which case maybe just Jesus. Watched a feature on him - from the favelas - a fighter and we`d be lucky to have him I think VTH.



23 Feb 2022 13:07:48
Found by accident Arsenal v wolves on prime video tomorrow night! COYG.

1.) 23 Feb 2022 19:31:09
Oh good, I've got that ?.



31 Jan 2022 07:30:45
Quick get on the blower to Silent Stan he’s in a good mood as his Rams ? reached the Super bowl last night! In other news I’ve tried to remain positive over the transfer window and guess what I got what I wanted- I’m positive ??COYG.

1.) 31 Jan 2022 08:27:24
Oh no, get well soon Sussex.

2.) 31 Jan 2022 08:42:57
All good Sally think I’ve been lucky bit like man flu which Sally I can tell you is terrible ? just don’t need any sudden surprises like Morata on loan though! COYG.

3.) 31 Jan 2022 09:49:17
Look after yourself Sussex.

4.) 31 Jan 2022 13:12:32
Keep well Dorset mate, hope you absolutely sail through it geezer ???.



14 Jan 2022 13:15:40
Agony watching the game and the clock last night. Excellent defending and could have nicked it with Saka`s chance. Fair result though and who would have taken 0-0 at the start let alone after 25 minutes. Hopefully that`s Ramsdale`s poor game out the way and is it me or does Tierney give his winger / wing back way too much room? ( Defenders Union ) Every chance of a final and just hope ESR Saka Tomyasi and Oedegaard ready for Sunday. Lots of well deserved Gabriel praise - not so much for Ben White - so I`m mentioning his great game and confirming he`s a good buy and going to get better. Him Gabriel and Saliba next season - Saliba will be like the proverbial new signing! Well played lads COYG.

1.) 14 Jan 2022 17:07:44
You’re on Tierney Sussex he’s been a little off. The foul he gave away against Cancelo leading to the goal was unlike him.

He left Xhaka exposed last night wasn’t bombing back and left too much to Trent, but he too wasn’t having a good game.

2.) 14 Jan 2022 17:55:35
Yard he’s still one of our top three players He’s the pro and I trust him and form is temporary and class is permanent and he is class. I’m just being too picky and compared to him arteta and Steve Clarke I know feck all! He will return to form and the NLD is a good a place as anywhere to do it COYG.



21 Dec 2021 16:41:48
Hoping Charlie Patino gets a run out tonight, lots of noise about how good he is COYG.

1.) 21 Dec 2021 17:32:12
Hello Sussex mate.
Hope him and maybe a couple more will get a chance ???.

2.) 21 Dec 2021 17:42:53
Sussex I hope he puts out a stronger side

No messing around, get the job done early.

3.) 21 Dec 2021 17:15:42
Him and Balogun Sussex ?.

4.) 21 Dec 2021 18:03:30
Yes, let's make sure of a win.

5.) 21 Dec 2021 18:08:38
Fair play Malaga on reflection maybe you`re right - let's bring him on at 4-0 :) COYG.

6.) 21 Dec 2021 18:33:11
Lokongo and Mari will not be playing
Tested positive for CV.

{Ed014's Note - didn’t see Auba in any of the training photos for tonight’s game either.

Hopefully he’s sorted a move for day 1 of the window!

7.) 21 Dec 2021 18:46:47

{Ed014's Note - I’ve got everything crossed Bill ??

8.) 21 Dec 2021 19:29:08
I heard it nowhere that Arsenal and Dortmound are in talks over Auba rejoining them and Haaland joing us .

Apparently Arsenal are prepared to accept a straight player swap and not insist on paying Dortmound £50 trillion sweetener to make the deal happen.

{Ed014's Note - I really can’t wait to see Haaland play…..for Real Madrid ??

9.) 21 Dec 2021 19:42:48
You never know Ed014 mate,

They said Aldershot would never win champions league.

{Ed014's Note - now that is a good point well made and I remember that day like it was never! ?

Hi Ed002 with Odegaard and Ramsdale ( assuming he comes) do we need to sell to cover these transfers or if we manage to sell can we look to a RB or a real treat like Bissouma? Thanks for all your info by the way COYG.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal need to sell players to get money coming in.}

Lose at Spuds win last two games still in our hands! I’m with MA when he says let’s go for it on Thursday! We’re not good enough defensively to play out a draw! We’ve won the title at their place twice why not a champions league place too. Who’d have thought a team with Eddie, Soares El Nenny and Holding and Xhaka ( half the outfield players ) would have kept us challenging for third and fourth) ! Wait until we buy well again in the Summer and Saliba in Wow! Can’t wait! Behind the sofa in Thursday though ???VTH.

I like it and always advocated us firing one or two cannons before each half and after a home goal! Maybe my suggestion of blowing up a chicken on a beach ball didn’t help my case VTH.

An option is 69 points Gunner871 - beat the Spuds job done! Spent beautiful day at Plumpton races avoiding the score and came back but recorded on the sky channel covering Chelsea Ladies and went over to Arsenal game literally as Luke Ayling two footed Martinelli. Missed all the excitement but bashed the bookies and got a tan Boooom! Bring on Thursday still in our hands who`d have thought VTH.
