Any of the Ed’s know if Monaco have made an approach for mustafi.


{Ed002's Note - I am aware of a discussion with Roma and am aware he will only leave if any deal suits him.}

1.) 30 Jul 2019 17:59:17
Sounds fair to me, we gave him the contract and he'd be a fool to leave where he's happy for somewhere he doesn't want to be just to please us.

2.) 30 Jul 2019 18:59:36
Apparently he doesnmt want to leave he is happy and wants to prove the fans wrong. going to be a long season if he tries 🤣.

3.) 30 Jul 2019 19:44:30
Imagine if your boss said he wanted you to leave his company where you were happy and relocate your family to a different company in a different country, but you knew he couldn't force you to go because of employment laws.
Would any of us go?

{Ed047's Note - so stay where your boss doesn’t like you, he puts you in a lesser role, ie the bench or worse, the company customers don’t like you and boo when they see you all with the added bonus of press and pundits ridiculing your work.

Or go where the weathers nicer, the pays as good, the restaurants better, the private schools as good and your closer to home.

Umm let me think.

4.) 30 Jul 2019 20:16:32
But Mustafi is happy at Arsenal Ed047, maybe you or me wouldn't be happy in his situation but he is happy at Arsenal.
I've always felt if your unhappy in your job then change because you have nothing to lose but if you are happy where you are then wow it's a huge gamble moving because the absolute best that can happen if your really lucky is you break even and get happy at the next Job too.
It's an absolute no brainer for Mustafi and his family to stay put if they like life where they are, we should never have bought him or Xhaka but that's our mistakes not thiers.

{Ed047's Note - my point was if no one wants you where you are wouldn’t you just rather go and be somewhere equally as nice where you get a new start.

Fully appreciate he doesn’t have to but think he’s kidding himself to say he’s happy to stay here under these circs.

5.) 31 Jul 2019 07:19:47
It would be best for both the player and the club if he moved on. His style simply doesn’t suit the PL. It is interesting that we haven’t signed a single defender in this window.
Tierney may arrive and I would love to see Mustafi sold and a quality replacement brought in. With only a week to go, assuming we sign Pepe and Tierney I will be pleased with the window, but the icing on the cake would be a CB out and one in.

6.) 30 Jul 2019 22:14:28
Before your time Ed047 but Martin Buccan the ex Manchester United CB who was a fantastic player said he absolutely hated being a footballer but it paid better than anything else he was capable of doing so he had little choice.
We all think of football as being about playing each week and I think at the beginning it's like that for all players but some lose their love of playing and it becomes a job and nothing more, Mertesacker said on his least season he hoped he'd never have to play again despite accepting a new 1 year deal.
For some players it's a case of doing their training play if selected and other than that get on with their lives doing what they really enjoy doing away from football.

{Ed047's Note - when I think about it I guess it’s true in all walks mate, I think I’m probably associating it with the amount of money they earn making it easier to live anywhere.

Which is no doubt not really the case for the average Joe.

Clearly most would like to see him moved on but the reality is if he doesn’t want to then like you say, the club gave him contract and that’s it.

7.) 31 Jul 2019 18:16:06
If I was mustafi, I would move. majority of the fans don't like him. Every mistake is amplified, and he is being mocked. good on him for sticking to his beliefs. but sometimes the individual is his worst enemy. Move on, reinvent yourself without pressure. Staying behind and trying to do something he has been unable to for the past few seasons. is at best retarded.

8.) 31 Jul 2019 19:10:30
If work is the most important thing in Mustafi life then he's a fool to stay but if his own, his wife and kids happiness is much more important than his job and if all the Mustafi family love living in London he'd be a mug to leave.
How many people actually love their jobs? For most people work is a means to an end no more no less, they do their job to the best of their abilities then go home forget all about work and get on with their real life.



21 Jul 2019 11:11:18
Do any of the Ed’s know if we have bid 70 million for Pepe thanks ed.


{Ed002's Note - There has been no sich bid from Arsenal.}

1.) 21 Jul 2019 13:46:30
Cheers ed mate have a good Sunday.



14 Jul 2019 13:19:23
Ed’s do you know anything about us having an interest in dani Alves cheered Ed’s.


{Ed002's Note - Nope.}

1.) 14 Jul 2019 15:54:32
Cheers ed.

2.) 15 Jul 2019 11:38:06
You’d have thought we learnt our lesson with Lichtsteiner, a superb player, but way past his best.

3.) 15 Jul 2019 12:23:49
Sonyou would say no to dani Alves he’s 100 times better than litch is I’d take him for a season for free.

4.) 15 Jul 2019 13:29:52
Alves has been one of the best RB’s in recent times, but Lichtsteiner won many trophies with Juve. However, Juve let him go and he looked a shadow of the player he once was. With PSG releasing Alves it may be a warning sign that at 36 years of age the intensity of the PL may be problematic.

5.) 15 Jul 2019 13:56:29
Alves has still got it, even at 36 years old or whatever he is. Absolute baller and would do a job for us for a year while Bellerin is coming back.

All that said, I pegged this one down as false from the get go. Surely a player of his prestige would be looking for a Champions League club?

6.) 15 Jul 2019 19:57:56
How true is don't know but it's been rumoured that City want him, 36? Roger Federer showed yesterday what's possible and he's 38 on deadline day 8th of August.



09 Jul 2019 09:48:35
Talk of arsenal interested in Bakayoko of Chelsea any of the Ed’s know of any thing thanks Ed’s.


{Ed002's Note - Unless something has happened this morning Arsenal is not one of the clubs that has approached Chelsea regarding the player.}

1.) 09 Jul 2019 10:07:12
Ed I saw yesterday you said you don’t want to give blow by blow updates on Saliba, but would you be able to tell us if a deal is close?

{Ed002's Note - How do I possibly measure "close".}

2.) 09 Jul 2019 11:18:03
Fair enough. I knew you will say that. How about this question- is he joining Arsenal?

3.) 09 Jul 2019 13:00:19
While your at it please could you also tell us what Saturdays winning lotto numbers are and who will the British prime minister in 2078 :-)

4.) 09 Jul 2019 14:40:20
Ed, am I close to realizing my life's purpose?

Couldn't resist, have a great day all.

5.) 10 Jul 2019 05:12:32
Dags maybe time to take a break.



05 Jul 2019 15:55:06
Silly season is on us Malcom is in talk now 😂😂😂.

Of emery drops ceballos for Ozil he needs shooting, the guy is pure class.


1.) 17 Aug 2019 18:26:43
But he won't Welsh mate, he doesn't rate Mesut any more than you do so you can rest easy between now and May on that one.



09 Aug 2019 17:46:46
Özil and Kolasinac out of Sunday’s game due to security reasons.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 18:13:25
It seems the incident a couple of weeks ago might not simply be a random opportunist attack if there is a future threat.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 19:13:48
Maybe it’s emery putting a hit man on them. You know like burning you car out for insurance 😬

You can tell by the video that it’s someone emery has paid he looked alright going forward but poor defensively 😂.

3.) 09 Aug 2019 19:58:03
That's not a bad shout that Sano :-)
Very very good mate.



07 Aug 2019 17:13:12
David luis 😂😂😂😂id rather mustafi.


1.) 07 Aug 2019 18:22:31
Would love Luis to play sweeper cone DM in a back 4 cone 5 formation.

{Ed047's Note - what? 🤔

2.) 07 Aug 2019 18:22:54
Well, Luis get some goals though!

3.) 07 Aug 2019 18:37:54
I wouldn’t.

4.) 07 Aug 2019 19:09:07
Yeah Ed047 mate I've always thought Luis would be perfect for the old fashion sweeper role when defending and the newer Defensive midfielder role which replaced the sweeper role when on the attack.
With a player capable of doing both roles you are able to switch from 3 4 3 to 2 5 3 within games depending whether in or out of possession.
The blokes tailor made for the job.

{Ed047's Note - ah got you now mate, I must be thicker than I thought as everyone else got it. 🤣

5.) 07 Aug 2019 19:17:29
You weren't the only confused one Ed047. But then again, G62 regularly confuses me.

{Ed047's Note - after reading your grown up conversation yesterday I can’t believe anything confuses you.

6.) 07 Aug 2019 19:24:53
No mate its me, trust me :-)
I've always had a knack of making somthing simple sound complicated, the rest of the world have always struggled with my written communications since I can remember Ed047 mate :-) .

7.) 07 Aug 2019 19:41:45
Trust me Sharpie I struggle with understanding me too mate, and I've had 57 years experience too :-)

8.) 07 Aug 2019 23:13:18
Keown isn’t a fan:

▪️Arsenal shouldn't look to sign Chelsea defender David Luiz before the deadline
▪️The Gunners need a centre-back but Luiz would be exposed in their system
▪️Luiz is a big personality which may cause problems for Arsenal boss Unai Emery.



06 Aug 2019 13:14:05
If we do bid for this defender then I personally think the board have told emery he can have who he wants and if he doesn’t delivery this season then they have said he’s going, that’s my opinion.


1.) 06 Aug 2019 14:05:48
I'm not sure about that but obviously the club is showing some ambition and I'm sure the ambition is champions league football not Just next season but on a regular basis.
I think it's pretty obvious defeats against Palace Leicester Watford will raise more than just eyebrows this season as we all know points most definitely make prizes and every point really does count. Expectation and accountability are two very important ingredients I think all managers accept as part of the job when they take it on and it would be good to see that apply at Arsenal again too.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 15:15:36
Didn’t one of the Ed’s say the won’t be giving him the option of his 3rd year.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 15:39:15
Hopefully he will earn the option of a 3rd year mate, top 4 and he certainly will have done but more Europa league football in 2020 2021 and he's unlikely to be our manager in my opinion.

4.) 06 Aug 2019 16:24:48
If we don’t sign a class defender this window then he has to go for me, I don’t like him now, but can’t just give him one year,

5.) 06 Aug 2019 17:08:06
Maybe we are signing all theses players to attract the right manager next year.

6.) 06 Aug 2019 17:52:07
Hopefully we won't need one Ben but just in case it won't hurt our chances of getting a decent replacement if need be which obviously none of us really want to be necessary.
I don't think anyone dislikes Emery personally so even those of us who doubt his methods tactics footballing philosophy actually would LIKE to see him be a huge success with us even if they can't see how that might actually be possible based on previous experience of his footballing ideas.



04 Aug 2019 10:38:24
Is the game still on today against Barca.


1.) 04 Aug 2019 11:20:46
Yes, as far as I am aware.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 11:42:19
Why wouldn't it?

3.) 04 Aug 2019 13:34:58
Not enough players? 😁.

4.) 04 Aug 2019 13:55:39
It’s ok we can just field 11 attackers and a keeper apparently that’s the way forward 😂.

5.) 04 Aug 2019 14:14:52
10 attackers I don’t think they’ll let us get away with 12 players 😂.

6.) 04 Aug 2019 15:35:00
I couldn’t see it on the sky sports app.

7.) 04 Aug 2019 16:42:31
That's because according to Sky the game already took place 4 weeks ago and was a 75 all draw mate ;-)

8.) 04 Aug 2019 17:47:48

My pleasure.

9.) 04 Aug 2019 19:34:53
