Is it true saka wabt a release cause in his new contract.

Stephen bristow

{Ed002's Note - I don't know but it is becoming something agents are beginning to ask for from English sides - well typically Termination Clauses rather than Release Clauses.}


1.) 22 May 2022 11:16:33
Get rid now if that’s the case we want players committed.


2.) 22 May 2022 13:51:07
I'm hoping it ain't true be a shame if he went but I can understand why.


3.) 22 May 2022 22:16:27
Nonsense, VM. Growing player power is a movement that has started ages ago and "get rid now" is not the way to respond to it. I believe we will start to see a lot more changes to football contracting in the future and if Saka of all people - someone who grew up with us an obviously loves the club - is letting his agent negotiate this then we can expect it is only the tip of the iceberg.


4.) 23 May 2022 07:34:04
If he loves the club then he should tell his agent he doesn’t want a clause in his contract the clause could be like haalands, 51 million for a player worth triple I stand by and say sell now if true have a great day.


5.) 23 May 2022 07:59:45
I think that's the way player contracts are heading now. The club should not give into every demand, but we have to get on-board in some capacity or risk losing/ missing out on the best players. Its up to the club to prove its ambition and achieve its glory goals, only then will contracts such as this be nullified.

Any truth to this tielemans rumour does anybody know.

Stephen bristow

{Ed002's Note - Youri Tielemans (CM) right now he will not sign a new contract so will be available in the summer at a reduced fee if he doesn't change his mind. His agent confirmed that there is interest from Real Madrid who are looking for a Luka Modric replacement, interest from Spurs and that he has been approached by a third party representing Newcastle. He is aware that other clubs, including Bayern Munich and Liverpool, have scouted the player but not declared an interest. Interest of the Manchester sides has probably gone as both are looking at other midfield options. Arsenal and Juventus provide wildcard options but Arsenal will have to focus on fixing other issues in the squad first and Juventus, whilst needing significant midfield changes are looking to preferred options.}


1.) 08 May 2022 13:50:41
Thanks for the feedback Ed have a good day.


2.) 08 May 2022 16:16:34
Hi Ed,

Other than a striker, what are the other priority areas (if not at CM) ?

Thanks!

{Ed002's Note - Potentially another goalkeeper in addition to Matt Turner. Right Back, Defensive Midfield, winger and another striker if EN refuses to agree a new contract.}


3.) 09 May 2022 16:19:58
Long list! Thanks Ed. Next pint is on me!

Do we think tripper will come to arsenal of
We can get a deal done.

Stephen bristow

{Ed002's Note - Kieran Trippier (RB) May be interested in a return to a England but being cover may make him think twice. Asking price is very high at €40M but Manchester United and Arsenal are open to a move if the price can bbe reduced. Everton interest went with CA.}


1.) 26 Aug 2021 10:10:39
Would love Trippier, i'm not sure the club is a big enough draw for him without Champions League mind. RB is a massive problem right now for me. Chambers is nowhere near good enough, so hopefully someone comes in. Aarons maybe?


2.) 26 Aug 2021 10:50:11
Surley he would be bought as our number 1 RB as opposed to cover?


3.) 26 Aug 2021 17:15:07
Question for you Ed regarding this, you may have no idea but what is the relationship like between arsenal and a. Madrid now. After the whole partey incident last summer I remember you said they wasn't too happy with how we acted.

{Ed002's Note - There won't be a good relationship right now.}


4.) 26 Aug 2021 18:42:49
Who would he be covering?


5.) 26 Aug 2021 20:22:10
Didn't think so. Appreciate the reply Ed.


6.) 26 Aug 2021 21:20:33
Thanks for ir the reply Ed.

Appare Juventus dortmound AC Milan are all interested in Aubameyang.

Stephen bristow

1.) 18 Aug 2021 11:08:12
Meant apparently.


2.) 18 Aug 2021 11:10:03
Doesn’t seem likely.


3.) 18 Aug 2021 14:01:42
If they are really unhappy at Arsenal they won't mind taking a huge pay drop to make sure the negotiations run smoothly. As long as the club received a fair offer then they should all be shipped off. Aubameyang is clearly on the decline so now is the best time to get rid of him. Hopefully a fair few others follow him out the door too.


4.) 18 Aug 2021 18:02:47
Why would they take a pay cut. I am sure they would leave, but only on loan to a club that will only take them if they can pay part of their salary and we pay the rest, which I think is what we did with Ozil. Otherwise if I was PEA, I would sit in the reserves building up my massive pension pot care of AFC.


5.) 18 Aug 2021 21:22:19
I think negotiating a payoff with unwanted players on big wages would be the best option.

Offer them a settlement figure to terminate the contract by mutual consent and let them go and earn the rest elsewhere.

We paid Mesut 51m over 3 years when we'd rather he'd just leave surely it would have been better to pay have 30m and let him go 3 years earlier so he could get on with his career and we could use 20m finding a player we wanted to play.

Compromise finds resolutions while digging your heels in often means everyone loses.


 

 

12 Aug 2021 20:58:54
I see tammy doesn't want the roma move is there a chance he could come to us.

Stephen bristow

{Ed002's Note - Making an offer would be a good starting point.}


1.) 13 Aug 2021 10:43:11
I agree Ed I'm assuming we can't until players leave the club.

{Ed002's Note - Which is proving far harder than Arsenal expected.}


2.) 13 Aug 2021 11:00:43
Hi Ed not sure it’s a question for you but would Arsenal consider terminating some of these contracts that have more than a year to run? Especially with less football to play this season so less chance of them being in the shop window.

{Ed002's Note - No, that would be lunacy and cost the club hige amounts of money.}


3.) 13 Aug 2021 11:30:23
OK thanks for the info ed look like willock is on the way out thought a few others would of been gone but maybe we are pricing them out of a move.

Well that's the season over was nice to dream
Of top 4 but we're just aren't ready or good enough yet.

Stephen bristow

 

 

15 May 2022 14:06:49
Added pressure to win tomorrow now lose or draw and we're end up 5th . I just don't think it will be easy at all tomoz.

Stephen bristow

{Ed014's Note - if we end up 5th we get the Europa League and that would be a more realistic tournament for our youthful squad.

Plus we would get to laugh at the Spuds making up the numbers in the Champions League and getting their arses handed to them on a plate by the big guns! ?


1.) 15 May 2022 15:23:06
Arsenal made up the numbers for 20 years lol.


2.) 15 May 2022 15:50:55
I agree Ed014 mate, go for gold and CL but if we only get the silver medal of EL it's not the end of the world for this young and inexperienced side and manager.

If the invincibles had finished 5th in 2005 and missed out on CL football that would have been a disaster, but we are not and haven't been the invincibles for a very long time now.

We are a rookie team with a rookie manager, both of whom still have a lot to prove before can start thinking of ourselves as anything more than top 4 hopefuls.

{Ed014's Note - spot on mate


3.) 15 May 2022 16:01:20
It would be Ed but I'm so hoping we get in champs league I miss us playing on them. nights but it is an improvement like you said.

{Ed014's Note - well it’s in our hands so it’s not an impossibility Stephen


4.) 15 May 2022 16:37:16
I know Ed I'm just use to us not doing so well when we need to.

{Ed014's Note - that has been our problem this season but now’s as good as anytime to change it.

We’ve had an easy time of it re the amount of fixtures we’ve played compared to others so no excuse of tiredness, just need to get on it from the off in both fixtures.


5.) 15 May 2022 17:35:22
If there is anything we've learned this season it's, that other than City and Liverpool there is no one we can not beat or be beaten by.

Plus every time you think we've turned a corner, we go backwards again but equally each time we think that's it, we've blown it this team manages to win back our hopes again.
In my opinion the fat lady is yet to break into song.


6.) 16 May 2022 16:32:31
Personally I think Champions League is a bit too much for us.
Europa League is where we should be at with the young players we have.
If we do well it gives them a real boost.
Let’s be honest!
Champions League is out of our depth.


 

 

12 May 2022 08:57:41
I be watching behind sofa tonight it's been ages since we have had a chance of champs league just hope we can do it.

Stephen bristow

1.) 12 May 2022 15:52:21
Is Saka out?


2.) 12 May 2022 17:26:53
I'm not sure mate.


 

 

03 Oct 2021 11:26:57
Not a bad result as I thought we were poor yesterday and Brighton played some nice footy we just need that giroid type player up top in this type of game who can hold up the ball and bring others into play.

Stephen bristow

1.) 03 Oct 2021 11:42:36
Can’t argue with that mate.


2.) 03 Oct 2021 11:51:51
It was a good result Stephen, a point away to this current Brighton side is definitely a point gained a posed to 2 dropped, I thought defensively we did much better than we have in the past.

But overall the performance was once again a concern and after last Sundays performance v Spurs this display was a super let down, but in reality was that superb performance last week only possible because Spurs were so bad? That's the question that needs to be answered and of course will be in the coming weeks and months.


3.) 03 Oct 2021 12:57:45
I’m with you 62. Spurs we’re poor. We were up for the game and i'm not sure Arteta can get that performance out of his team day in day out.


4.) 03 Oct 2021 13:35:45
Agree SY Spurs were awful and we took full advantage, but that in itself is a huge plus because there have been lots of occasions in the past when we wouldn't have taken full advantage and laboured for a draw or narrow win.

Potter has done a fabulous job at Brighton and only Chelsea Liverpool and City could go there at the moment and come away with the right to be genuinely unhappy with a point, everyone else including us should respect that Brighton are currently every bit our equals, historically Brighton may not be on an equal level as ourselves but currently thry most certainly are and history counts for nothing in the present moment.


 

 

26 Sep 2021 21:15:50
Great first half performance today I hope we can play like we did on the first half every game even if we lose it was exciting to watch.

Stephen bristow

1.) 26 Sep 2021 21:33:15
Was a great performance all round, we got nicely ahead then made sure we stayed ahead. Great tactical game I would say, every game is a game of 2 halves.

{Ed014's Note - there’s no flies on you mate! ?


2.) 27 Sep 2021 09:52:44
I loved what I saw from Odegaard, great performance from our guys :)

Would potter be you're number 1 Ed he would be mine as like how Brighton play football.

Stephen bristow

{Ed014's Note - yes he would Stephen and I’m of the same opinion re their football.

He looks head and shoulders better than Arteta and would have been the one to take a gamble on.

The big factor is he knows the Premier League too and we’re not going to tempt a top manager away from a top club.

Sadly we’re stuck with MA.

I don't think he should of got that new contract and why he won't give the two French guys a second chance we have a good young squad and could do wonders under a better coach.
