Could it be true - " Arsenal are reportedly considering selling Kai Havertz for €40 million, with Real Madrid being an option if they return with an interest. "

Me, I'd keep him as long as we can sign the players we really need. He was purchased to play a role that was too big for him. He could still have a role to play but we must address the obvious first.

If we had CM, CF and decent fast winger then keep him. If the 40m is stopping that as well as his ridiculous wage ( hopefully HR ran the negotiator thru a disciplinary for. ) then sell sell sell.


1.) 13 Nov 2023 08:16:15
Morning Ed002, would you have any insight as to whether Arsenal are looking to sell Havertz in January?

{Ed002's Note - No, they are not looking to do taht.}

2.) 13 Nov 2023 12:44:38
Thanks Ed,

3.) 18 Nov 2023 17:39:47
Just curious here, what role do you guys actually think he was brought in for? Back up for Ode? Replacement for Xhaka? Always thought of rice doing that role myself, that's when TP is fit holding the line anways, who knows, the guys looked p*ss poor wherever he's played.

4.) 19 Nov 2023 16:03:35
I'm guessing to replace Xhaka and/ or Partey Bruce.



07 Jul 2023 20:09:51
Hi Ed - is Romeo Lavia high on our wanted list and are we having conversations with player and owners to make this happen?


{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath - it will be difficult at best.}

1.) 12 Jul 2023 19:52:30
Thank you Ed.



20 Oct 2021 19:33:05
Ed, are we looking to sell Balogun? Thought he was doing well and just signed a deal. Clearly Martinelli needs a run out and Balogun a chance to shine before we lose both.


{Ed002's Note - Arsenal may well loan him out to get game time but the player is attrac ting interest and must think about his future.}

1.) 21 Oct 2021 00:44:23
Thank you - hope he gets a chance with us.

{Ed002's Note - Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah will be gone so there is a chance.}

2.) 30 Oct 2021 21:35:31
Bit late to this conversation Ed but I was wondering if there's any chance arsenal might offer lacazette a new deal. Or he might want to stay if that wasn't the issue. With the last few games seems he's coming back into the team more.

{Ed002's Note - He needs replacing.}

3.) 31 Oct 2021 08:44:58
Thanks for the reply Ed.

4.) 02 Nov 2021 15:15:44
Ed, do you rate Luka Jovic?

{Ed002's Note - Luka Jovic (S) there was the option to return to Eintract Frankfurt on a loan with an obligation to buy but it depended on selling Andre Silva and not replacing him - but they opted for the well thought of Rafael Borre. Milan have a sustained interest but have opted for a cheaper solution. Inter wanted to take him as cover but they have much preferred options - but don't rule them out. Was offered to West Ham but nothing came of it. A third party enquired on behalf of Arsenal but come the end of the summer window there was no space for him - could return for him as a Lacazette replacement, and that would not be a surprise. Roma were offered him but the coach turned him down. Real Madrid will offer him in part exchange for others or for sale. Everton could be open to discussions but I am not aware of an approach just yet.

5.) 02 Nov 2021 15:36:45
Thanks Ed.

Has anyone seen him play Is he any good?



21 Jul 2021 11:27:04
Ed, it's looking like we are pushing for Tammy Abraham for a loan / loan to buy agreement. Popping up on a few news stories. Is there any truth to this and you were less than complementary about his attitude but not sure outside of him throwing his toys out of his prom. is he a quality striker that would improve our front line and we just need to manage his ego? Is he worth that effort and are we genuinely looking at him. thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Tammy Abraham (S) Was asked to sign a contract extension but is being a bit of a prima donna and a bitch which the club won't tolerate so the club will let him leave in the summer. Potential option for Wolves and Aston Villa but both have preferred options. West Ham have a huge list of potential striker options and have repeatedly failed to resolve their issue - they may come in to play. Borussia Dortmund asked Chelsea about his availability but it seems unlikely even though they have missed out on their preferred option. Newcastle, Arsenal and Milan may provide a wildcard options but Milan has preferred targets. Is being offered around.}

1.) 21 Jul 2021 12:53:07
Thanks Ed. You clearly don’t like him as a professional but what about as a player on the pitch? I’m thinking Anelka was also a problem off the pitch especially with his brother blowing smoke up his ass. But I’d take another Anelka all day as he was special….

2.) 21 Jul 2021 13:37:23
Have Arsenal not had enough of signing players Chelsea deem to be surplus to requirements?

{Ed014's Note - I really hope so as TA is nowhere near good enough and can’t we just give them Willian back as defective goods!

3.) 21 Jul 2021 15:57:16
Would be an absolute ridiculous signing if it happens. I see nothing in Abraham to suggest he is good enough for any top 10 Premier League team.

4.) 22 Jul 2021 03:24:51
I'm surprised Villa aren't after him. Played for them before, fits their style, good backup for Watkins. If we sign him and drop Balogun and Gabi I will be fuming.

5.) 22 Jul 2021 01:55:55
ED, maybe you can educate me a little on why in your opinion Arsenal are supposedly linked with Ramsdale for more money than what we sold Martinez for. Kante has won 2 consecutive league titles with 2 clubs. Ramsdale has done the opposite and been relegated consecutively with 2 clubs. I’m so confused.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea which Ed you expect to reply. There is no link between Ramsdale and Martinez and I don't understand the comment about Kante.}

6.) 22 Jul 2021 10:04:40
Tammy is better than Watkins. Doesn't always look the most gracious, but he simply scores goals. You don't often find his combination of mobility, technique and build. He's hard for defenders to play against.

Kid is our (Chelsea's) top PL scorer over the past 2 seasons for a reason. If he plays he'll get goals. You guys would be lucky to have him. I'll be sad to see him go, but I like him and he deserves to move somewhere where he'll play.

7.) 22 Jul 2021 12:24:46
Thanks for your comments Jackson, really nice to read.

I will be happy if Tammy comes to us. We have lacked a really tall guy in our box since Giroud crossed the divide :) and he's a giant!

Good luck for the coming season :)

8.) 22 Jul 2021 11:40:13
Ed I think the fella above is saying why are arsenal selling one of the best keepers in the league for £20m and looking to buy a keeper who hasn’t proved themselves for £30m.

{Ed002's Note - Emi Martinez wanted first team football and wanted out of Arsenal. He had pretty much no chance of playing at Arsenal. Aaron Ramsdale is young and will be able to take over from Leno at some point.}

9.) 22 Jul 2021 14:16:01
Sorry, didn’t mean ask in form of a Riddle. I’m basically asking what your opinion is on Ramsdale as I think he’s pony and don’t understand the price tag linked with him. He was awful for Bournemouth and they got relegated. Same when he went to Sheffield. Confidence is built from the back and I strongly believe Shef huge dip in form was not having Henderson between the posts but instead having Ramsdale. He’s stats are awful. Villa’s season for example I bet wld have been a lot different if they had him in goal instead of Martinez.

{Ed002's Note - It is where the club have ended up after others have fallen away. Mat Ryan was not happy and opted out. Andre Onana looked a good choice but he has better options now. Kia wants Neto still.}

10.) 22 Jul 2021 14:21:28
Hopefully that answers ColdIce question then. Ed, would you be able to provide us with an update on Ramsdale in terms of us pushing for a deal?

{Ed002's Note - That is not a proper sentence. I have explained there is interest from Arsenal.}



19 Jul 2021 21:03:37
Hi Ed, is it true we have agreed terms with James Maddison? Why do clubs agree stuff with the player without agreement from the club? Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - I don’t know, sorry.}

1.) 19 Jul 2021 21:18:38
Ok - thanks Ed.

2.) 19 Jul 2021 21:48:59
Would love seeing arsenal get Maddison but i really doubt it'll happen. I think its just silly paper talk. Where has this money come from if we actually are getting Maddison? i'm sure I've read everywhere Arsenal can't afford big signings.

3.) 20 Jul 2021 02:06:46
Jaybo84 if we can’t afford big signings how have we got Ben white? For 50m and CM LB we so far spent around 75m so them who say we can’t afford to spend a lot how come we just got white for 50m.

4.) 20 Jul 2021 08:01:40
Mate read what i wrote. You've basically asked me the same question i just asked.

5.) 20 Jul 2021 09:50:05
I read that Stan has given Mikel a war chest with the proviso he has to buy under 25 year old players whose value will hopefully increase over time.
If true it seems to be working :)

6.) 20 Jul 2021 09:56:30
Hope this is true sally

Don’t want Maddison, he’s not that good.

7.) 20 Jul 2021 10:31:49
He is most definitely good enough. The issue is that he struggles to keep fit and that's certainly what we don't want, especially for a player with a fee of his size.

8.) 20 Jul 2021 12:42:35
Depends on fee and more importantly who we don`t buy if we spend big on him. Don`t sweat the fees and wages they`re ridiculous! He is good enough and could be a very good signing great on deadball situations too. Think he fell out over C.V. breach and dropped for fa cup final so wants away maybe. Prem ready and much prefer to MO ( yes SirWenger I realised it was Oedegaard not ozil just obviously a poor joke ) . Keep feeling relieved MO staying at Madrid, get Aouar and or Maddison! Liking the Aarons rumours rubber stamped by ED002 saying we are interested! Exciting times COYG.

9.) 21 Jul 2021 22:25:56
002 settled this ages ago, kroenke got his hands in his pockets, pay upfront make it back on the sales, o something along them lines, zing zing.

Great result and fighting spirit.

Rice, Rice Baby!

Kai getting another goal ??.


1.) 05 Dec 2023 22:27:45
Rice to the rescue in Arteta time, we are so lucky to have a manager who is sooooooo lucky ????.

2.) 05 Dec 2023 23:33:34
You have to make your own luck G62 you don’t get luck by being positive but I know where you’re coming from I believe it started a couple of seasons ago when the young gunners turned up at Chelsea and got us the three points.

3.) 05 Dec 2023 23:34:40
Bit disingenuous that 84! By saying MA is a jammy wotsit takes away from this team ( and him) who keep going and scoring within the allotted time. In fact the more we do it City Brentford Luton proves it ain’t luck just good old skill and endeavour- the way it should be ?⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️ COYG.

4.) 06 Dec 2023 07:49:50
I didn't mean the team was lucky but Arteta was lucky his player's bailed him out, again, despite himself and his own inability to accept his made a huge mistake in ditching Ramsdale for Raya.

Its the same with playing Partey at RB, the team had to find a way of compensating for and overcoming the managers egotistical craziness.

5.) 06 Dec 2023 09:19:26
Same way MA was extremely unlucky last season when the players didn`t bail him out! Can`t have both ways. Partey a misnomer - we were undefeated playing him there (not buying that Partey was upset ah didums) and overall not much between Raya and Ramsdale (who I prefer) but maybe we need an upgrade on both. Lucky / Unlucky No! Agree to disagree 42 COYG.

6.) 06 Dec 2023 09:53:10
Manager didn't choose a side you would have so he's lucky the players he chose won him the game? I don't think it works like that. I used to be very critical of Arteta but look at our record for the last year. That's not luck. Nobody gets it 100 % right all the time but he seems to be getting it more right than most.

7.) 06 Dec 2023 16:56:09
Fair play Northamts we agree to disagree, which is in itself lucky for Arteta ?.



28 Nov 2023 19:38:39
Great to read this about Kai. Looking forward to seeing that attitude pay dividend on the pitch, just like his runs into the box at the weekend

There is a very different perception in the public to the reality in private, " The Athletic journalist said. "What people see of Havertz behind the scenes and how they are working to make him most effective.

"Don't forget he is learning a new role, at a new club, with a new group of players who have pretty much solidified their way of playing last season and he comes into it.

"It is going to take some time. But I think everything I hear suggests that firstly he is ultra committed and dedicated and football obsessed to get this right and work with the coaches.

"And furthermore his attitude behind the scenes and the application that he puts in, his conduct - which is something I heard at Chelsea as well - is beyond reproach.

"He really is a very popular character with players and staff and away from the pitch throughout his career he has worked with physios for his recovery and condition and things like that. ".




26 Nov 2023 18:18:09
Well played Rice! Moved quick and effectively to clear off the line. Great game

Well done Kai. Nice few runs into the box and the winner to cap off your super sub appearance.




14 Nov 2023 20:01:38
Just watched the VAR replay and audio.

I am now more frustrated than before -but could be ignorant. the ball out of play, they seem to be focusing on a frame when the ball looked least out. For the push which Webb said could be a foul they are questioning if our player made a meal of it (which he did but a fouls a foul) then the offside - kinda feel that's a cop out as they keep forgetting the keeper.

Why was offside not given

Why when they note two hands on his back wasn't a foul given

Why was the film rolled backwards rather than forwards to see if ball was out.

Interested to see if anyone can help me understand the offside in particular.


1.) 15 Nov 2023 07:57:35
The Truth is out there agent SY ????.



09 Nov 2023 20:04:57
So Independent review committee says the Newcastle goal should have stood. Wtf

They said both sides should have had a player sent off. Ok.


1.) 09 Nov 2023 20:46:22
To be fair mate, pundits and public alike are split 50/ 50 on whether Newcastle goal should have stood or been disallowed. I personally think it should have been ruled out but opinions are very divided on the subject.

I think the one thing most people agree on is Mikels post match rsposene and comments were completely OTT and the club's backing of his words a full 36 hours later let image of The Arsenal down badly.

We were once renowned throughout football for our dignified way of going about things and this entire episode has let the clubs name down in my opinion.

2.) 09 Nov 2023 21:16:22
Wondered what Sting Peter Beardsley Sir Les Alan Shearer and Ant or Dec had been up to the last few days! Shoukd have gone to Specsavers to A ) See B) remove the black and white tinted glasses ? COYG.

3.) 09 Nov 2023 21:50:31
Hello John and Sy, like you both I think the goal should have been disallowed. Artetas comments have come within minutes of the end of the match where he is not in a good place, angry with the goal being given, also angry with our teams performance even though he doesn't mention that fact.13 shots on goal only 1 on target, umpteen corners nothing and Raya flapping at the cross. Havertz lucky to stay on the pitch as was Bruno. Bottom line is that Mikel thinks we have played rubbish but if not for a VAR error we would have come away with a point. The people at the club now are not the same as your Hill Woods, Bracewell Smith, Danny Fitzman and of course David Dein who would probably not have released a statement like that and perhaps not let Mikel go into the press room straight after the game. I
Dont think I am criticizing the present people behind the scenes but they have different mindsets to what was about 20 to 30 years ago. I have already posted on here what I think of the pundits view.
We bounced back well and looked good despite our worrying injury list.
Apparently Saka injury not to serious.

4.) 10 Nov 2023 07:25:46
So hold on - we've long been able to be critical of all bodies and organisations. Wronged by the police and it's your right to be critical. Wronged by a court and it's your right to be critical. Wronged by the state and it's your right to be critical. But whatever you do, don't be critical of a referee or the PGMOL. THAT'S a step too far.

This isn't just an Arsenal problem. A number of clubs have suffered their ineptitude, and we're not even halfway through the season.

Sure, we once lived in an era where people were more subservient. You may call it respectful, but really, no on was "respecting" wrong decisions. In any case, this is not that era.

Referees and the PGMOL should focus on doing better, instead of trying to muzzle managers and players. Clubs and fans pour money into this great sport of ours and deserve better.

This notion of swings and roundabouts would be a nice one, if it were true. This isn't like flipping the same two sided coin 10 times with a probability of hitting heads 50% of the time. This is more multifaceted.

5.) 10 Nov 2023 08:11:29
Sharpe - I agree and I think after the Brentford game he should have done the same however he should have added our defender was terrible, goalie flapped and attack was limp and useless if he was being really honest. I like seeing his passion but don’t be 30% honest. At least say I didn’t see it and smile.

Club statement was fine and didn’t step over the mark.

Under that same regime they painted a fake stand with a white crowd. Had a captain who went to jail, a player done for stealing rubbish at Heathrow and plenty drunken parties. We did have honour and some great values but we were never perfect. ?

Enjoy your Friday gents.

{Ed014's Note - no manager is going to say that stuff in public SY, you know that!

I get the impression that you really do look for a downside in everything about the club, manager and squad.

I get we can be critical and we all have differing opinions but Arteta didn’t arrive in the Premier league at a starting point of Guardiola and Klopp.

He is new to this game, he doesn’t have the vast experience they had.

This team is young, is growing and developing and we can see the owners are supporting all of this.

This doesn’t mean, as I said, we can’t be critical but aren’t the club finally heading in the direction we’ve craved for since the successful Wenger years.

Have a great weekend mate.

6.) 10 Nov 2023 08:54:32
Well said Ed

When we was winning on Wednesday and played good football there was no sign of people who slag of the club on live chat.

{Ed014's Note - I know mate and we can all have a moan and still have concerns but we are so clearly on an upward trajectory that hasn’t yet finished, it just seems daft to be soooo negative about the club when they’re getting so much right.

7.) 10 Nov 2023 09:31:36
I will have to join live chat.

14.) 10 Nov 2023 14:39:59
I was out on Wednesday Mal - sorry ?

Ed - I think I’m kinda sticking up for the club @ didn’t really have a jab at Arteta if you read it with a bit of sarcasm.

Of all my posts - this is the one that you think is negative.

I’ve said I like his passion

The club picked him and invested heavily. He’s there at the head of a huge club and many many people are highlighting the same challenges with him. I’m not making anything up. Saying everything he does is excellent, we are playing superb football and every move in the windows have been perfect etc etc is lieing…. I didn’t make him sign Kai or play Partey at RB or not replace Granit. That’s not an intelligent person’s decision and Arteta is intelligent with a super footballing brain.

Appreciate the response and hope you have a super Friday.

{Ed014's Note - hi SY, there is a tone of negativity it all of them SY, it’s your opinion and I have no issue with that at all.

It just seems sometimes you look for a negative and don’t get me wrong Arteta makes some poor, in my opinion, decisions.

One that I don’t get is over playing Saka, he should have been subbed off first against Sevilla, he’d been kicked all over the pitch.

I too think Havertz is a huge down grade on Xhaka but there’s so much more to be positive about.

15.) 10 Nov 2023 15:36:51
ETH said this week he’s waiting for VAR to go United’s way! Genuinely! Was he not at wolves first game of the season! Sure Wolves and Pool happy for him COYG.

{Ed014's Note - maybe that bald fraud could try getting that crap squad to play some football rather than blame VAR.

I guess VAR is levelling things up after years of Fergie time! ?

16.) 10 Nov 2023 15:56:09
I just remember always saying the bad decisions even themselves out over the season. To counteract that we introduced VAR where we are now saying VAR decisions will even themselves out over the season! It will be interesting to see how MA reacts should we get a howler in our favour - we’re due one! COYG.

17.) 10 Nov 2023 18:53:35
Personally I'm more happy with the cubs investment in player's, the raising of the bar on ambitions and the performance and achievements on the pitch.

I personally don't like seeing the image of The Arsenal tarnished by over emotional claims and statements that make us appear to be unable to accept anything that doesn't go our way and look and sound like whingers. When your losing with a fee minutes to go you have to compose yourself and be ready to be humble in defeat as well as victory.

Last seasons buzz word from Arsenal was " we are humble ", I saw no sign of humility from Mikel after the game or from the club 36 hours later. Sometimes you've got to practice what you preach and be as humble in defeat as you are in victory, well you if you want your claims to have any credibility.

18.) 10 Nov 2023 20:25:12
With the regards to live chat if you’ve not been on it get on the next game. Just about the best I’ve been on, friendly group of posters bit of banter and honest opinions. But never grief that you get on most these sites.

19.) 10 Nov 2023 23:01:34
I get what you're saying g62 and there's a lot to be said for being dignified and gracious in defeat and moaning after a defeat does seem like whining and making excuses.

But it surely gets to a point where you've got to say, what's going on?

Fans of one club or another every week are saying what's going on?

I'm pretty sure other managers have been kicking off too, O'Neill, Klopp, Ten Hag off the top of my head.

But also the managers are required to do an interview straight after the game, when their emotions are still high, you can't expect people to always be composed in those situations.

Generally they're composed and very guarded because If they do criticise the referee they get fined, which is bs, I want to hear their true opinions, not platitudes and soundbites, otherwise what's the point.

20.) 11 Nov 2023 08:29:11
Hi Eden mate I totally agree something has to be done about var decisions they are doing absolutely nothing to improve the game in my opinion. And I definitely get that emotions are running high but although we believe we were wronged much of the public and pundits don't believe we were wronged at all so the decisions were debatable rather clearly wrong. Being a manager in any business comes with a huge responsibility as you are representing the club or company you work for and if you going to make very strong claims and criticise others very publicly surely you need to be proven right in order for those strong words and claims to be considered anything but sour grapes bad and unable to be disappointed but dignified in defeat.

Unfortunately Mikels his very strong comment's last Saturday nigh got an awful lot of attention and headlines and his strong words needed to be backed up with strong conclusive evidence but unfortunately the exact opposite has happened and the whole series of incidents now simply look like continuous decisions that just didn't go our way on the day and leaving Mikel and the club looking like bad losses who are unable to accept defeat without whinging. Its not an image I personally like for our club to have and I prefer to let other club's and their managers have that reputation and for The Arsenal to be respected.

21.) 11 Nov 2023 12:02:39
Respect is rarely gained by staying silent in the face of wrong, whether perceived or real. Respect is gained by standing up, being vocal, and forcing change.

Being offended by criticism is the crutch of the weak. Using criticism as a catalyst to improve and do better is more rewarding and that's exactly what the PGMOL should be all about. On what planet (besides dictatorships) is it ok to silence people, and then have the audacity to fine them if they speak out?

In this specific case, pundits claiming that to be the right decision to allow the goal are either idiots or they are being seriously disingenuous.

I'm happy with the club standing up and being counted. I'm happy with the club for expecting better from referees.

We needed a decent CM and were top by a mile. We didn’t cough up and guess what - we are still looking for that position but now as runners up. Jorginho was a ? signing and not a Partey cover which was 100%, required. We went cheap - failed and now going to overspend STILL ?

I heard Raya couldn’t catch the first addition on release.

Stephen, I hate to break it to you but we didn’t really challenge last year. City had it in the bag and we bottled it / collapsed. Decent journey but like the season before - we crashed when it mattered. No difference between our season and Newcastle’s season except they didn’t throw it away at the business end.

If we do the same - it’s a disaster as that’s 3 in a row.

I don’t think we will bottle it but I didn’t think we would last season. I honestly believe our squad will still come up short unless injuries fall into our lap as we didn’t strengthen enough in much needed positions and are exposed exactly as we were last year. The boss and club haven’t learned. Hopefully they prove me wrong in Jan window. We’ve also had a slightly easier run of games to date so need to go away to Liverpool, City and Spurs before we get too carried away.

I’ve not followed this club for ages to be happy not properly competing and City look a little vulnerable again, less hungry may be due to number of titles in a row or whatever. But we’ve shown faith in Arteta, invested an insane amount of money and are a big club. I’ll be pxssed if we don’t win it or are not competing come the last game of the season. That’s competing not last years bollox, albeit a big improvement but improvements need results and outcomes not consolations and players players trophies….

“ Kai arguably had his best game of the season against Luton. During Arsenal’s away triumph, Havertz created four chances for his teammates and took five shots himself. ”

Decent stats and bit more dangerous in the box winning headers and good runs.

Souness needs to eat his words….

Rice Rice Baby is a super star and signing - great attitude, level headed and should be captain. Looks like he’s loving it here also

Team showed some backbone last night and loved it. We really played faster and determined to score. ?.
