This Josh Kroenke Twitter letter has told arsenal fans to get excited about transfers at the end of the window. I'll hold my breath on that one.


1.) 16 Jul 2019 23:35:52
Too late, LR Cristal on ice ready for popping 🍾.

2.) 17 Jul 2019 08:44:58
ah rich boy tells you some made up fantasies and the peasants are in a feeding frenzy for the BS. I'm not buying it, nothing has convinced me we are improving, we are adding but we are not improving, our squad is nowhere near title calibre, and its not even potential calibre.

I would rather sign one really good player than 3 average players and then have to sell them 3 years later. we are going round in circles.

3.) 17 Jul 2019 10:38:28
It gets better Emery saying in sky we are going for very big and expensive signings at least 4 players.

4.) 17 Jul 2019 11:26:38
I want to believe it. and it's not about money. its about the right players. hunger, drive, ability. Not social media divas.

I guess we have to see how this season pans out.

I'm more upset about the players we have who have no hunger, desire or drive and anyone we add will get influenced by their lacklustre beliefs.

5.) 20 Jul 2019 06:41:39
I still believe that the ‘big 4 signings for lots of money’ will end up being, Everton, Tierney, Ceballos and Dani Alves. This is only my opinion lol but out of those 4, actual transfer fee-wise, I can only see two that would cost us an actual fee, 1 who would demand a large signing on fee and 1 who we may have to pay an amount to Madrid.
I’m ok with that, but really wish the club wouldn’t use the words like ‘very big, very expensive’ when the most expensive would be Zaha. Btw, I’m still thinking £55m plus Jenkinson and Elneny would get ya Zaha.
I get 55m is expensive, but in this market, it’s not exactly Neymar/ Hazard/ Felix big and expensive.



03 Jul 2019 11:24:22
Seeing rumours we have offered 50m for Maguire gets better by the day lol.


1.) 03 Jul 2019 12:42:09
I hear they’ll be offering PSG a swap deal for Neymar including Mustafi and £5.

2.) 03 Jul 2019 16:01:44
The only players we offer £50m for, are the ones whose club values them at . 50% higher. They like to give the impression they are making an effort. It insults our intelligence, yet they persist.

3.) 04 Jul 2019 00:09:50
Didn't this come from the sun 😂.



01 Jul 2019 19:44:36
So we have bid £40m for zaha I think we maybe a pound short this time lol.


1.) 01 Jul 2019 20:40:14
I think it's actually you we bid on Wilfred mate :-) .



26 Jan 2019 13:13:25
David Ornstein saying we after Ivan persic on loan with an option to buy for 35m.


1.) 26 Jan 2019 15:59:19
Wanted Suarez on loan, failed because we won’t commit to a purchase. Nkunku, that will probably fail because we won’t commit to a purchase. Now we are on talks to sign Perisic? Great player by why would we commit to buying a 30 year old for 35m when we won’t commit to Suarez for 20. Looks like we are going through players until someone just says yes to a loan with option to buy rather than a obligation.

2.) 26 Jan 2019 16:24:17
Perisic is an option to buy, Barcelona wanted a obligation to buy. If the player can’t settle to life or football, you are not forced to buy.

3.) 26 Jan 2019 16:50:21
Yes I know. Inter also want an obligation to buy according to reports and will only accept offers between 35-40m in the summer.



31 Aug 2017 16:08:19
Saying on sky we have bid £92m for lemar and monico are softening. that's crazy money.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 16:19:26
That amount involves a twit tax. That's the extra we have to pay for being twits in the transfer window. It's our own fault.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 16:39:58
Ha ha like it barn. Yet again three weeks back we could have got him for 60 mil but Wenger didn't think he was worth it.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 17:14:14
I love how people think they know everything on here. Who on earth said they wanted 60 a few weeks ago? Face it we haven't a clue what happens.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 17:16:06
Can't see how France are going to let him have a medical if they playing tonight. so probably one of those we tried to buy him bids.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 17:29:07
Not entirely sure how true but there were rumours that deschamps had players that could potentially move today have medicals last night? Besides a medical isn't a requirement for a transfer and could be completed after the deadline but obviously involves an element of risk.

6.) 31 Aug 2017 17:38:40
He's refus By to join arsenal he wants Liverpool.

7.) 31 Aug 2017 17:54:09
Yeah Wilfred beat me to it, pretty sure the next press conference will be Arsene telling everyone how he did all he could to get Lemar Van Dyk Seriously bla bla bla.

8.) 31 Aug 2017 20:35:55
They knew he was playing for France tonight so how did they think they could get the deal done. deschampssaid he wasn't going to let anybody out the squad for talks.

9.) 31 Aug 2017 21:21:40
Just more moaning members that are never happy.

10.) 31 Aug 2017 21:21:57
hes not moving, sanchez is staying and lemar is staying.

11.) 31 Aug 2017 22:00:09

Are you serious lol.

Sky have done a top 50 of in form players not one arsenal player in it shocking.


1.) 11 Nov 2019 13:21:23
I'm surprised Leno isn't on the list because if he hadn't been on form all this season we'd be rock bottom of the table :-) .

2.) 12 Nov 2019 10:00:58
Not surprised tbh we’ve been poor our results have been poor, our attitude has been poor. If anyone i'd have thought maybe Auba. He hasn’t been pulling up any trees but not sure anyone can in this team and yet he’s still 4th top scorer in league.

3.) 12 Nov 2019 10:09:13
G62. Give the goals from the Liverpool game another watch and tell me Leno’s on form. Atleast two of them should, not could, have been saved in my Unwanted opinion.



30 Oct 2019 20:56:56
Ozil playing really well tonight so what's emery do sub him.


1.) 30 Oct 2019 21:48:57
Ozil is quality, put a couple of work horses by him and we are in business. only once Dick has gone.



30 Sep 2019 20:49:02
Nice to see xhaka duck out the way of their goal.


1.) 30 Sep 2019 22:07:43
Twice in one game? The BBC were ironically referring to him as " Xhaka Arsenal's inspirational captain "
What is it with Arsenal captains and ducking?

2.) 01 Oct 2019 01:32:58
Presumably g62 they prefer it to goosing.

3.) 01 Oct 2019 05:34:38
Heres a first, i'm actually going to stick up for xhaka, you are wrong, he was trying to head it and Socrates deflected it, so xhaka missed it. So there! He is still crap though!

{Ed001's Note - I am noting this moment down in my calendar under 'Shocking Moments In History'.}

4.) 01 Oct 2019 13:21:13
Haha love it Ed it did look like a duck to me shame we only drew but happy with the youngsters last night willock should start in the team for me Chambers should stay rb has played great every game I seen him in this season.

5.) 01 Oct 2019 22:05:31
He moved his head downwards I'd call that a duck.



27 Sep 2019 18:19:07
So xhaka has been named club captain guess that means he's playing every game god help us.


1.) 27 Sep 2019 19:47:57
Im gutted, apparently the players wanted him and according to sky poll of 40000 people, he wasnt in the top 5, he got 8% of the vote. It doesn't mean he plays every game but it means he's captain. If he keeps on making gaffs him or Emery will pay the price.

2.) 27 Sep 2019 20:12:03
I was the same steve, it’s just impossible to fathom what he is seeing in Xhaka.

There isn’t honestly one stand out part to his game but numerous woeful ones.

I just don’t get it.

3.) 27 Sep 2019 20:27:30
It's 200% Emerys choice, would he let the players chose the team and tactics? Of course not, he's merely getting the players to rally round a team mate who was booed by his own supporters.
I disagree with so much of what Emery does football wise but I think this is more about personal support than anything else.
Xhaka was already captain and an ever present regardless of his performances, nothing has changed today other than a show of public support for a colleague and a rebuff to fans who boo individuals.

4.) 27 Sep 2019 21:38:55
There must be something they see. I don’t, but then again I cheat at Football manager, so what would I know?

5.) 27 Sep 2019 22:13:52
Whatever they see Slaam it's not backed up with results, 3 Xhaka seasons 3 non top 4 finishes after 20/ 20 before he arrived.
But booing him isn't the answer that's for sure, it's even his fualt he's not good enough at premier league level life, it's both Arsenes for buying him and never dropping him and Emerys for carrying on where Arsene left off.

6.) 28 Sep 2019 00:23:47
Hopefully it’ll work out. I’d like nothing better for him to click and start being the player we need mate. Sadly I think his time will end with Emery’s in the summer.

7.) 28 Sep 2019 09:03:58
I wish fellow Gooners would stop whinging about Emery and Xhaka.
We are in the top 4, we have beaten the hardest team to beat in our EL group, 3-0 away. We destroyed top placed Championship side Notts Forest 5-0 in the League Cup. We have only lost one PL match, away to top placed, Champions League winners Liverpool.
Emery is a winner with many trophies to his name,
Xhaka has always been selected by his managers and as Captain. He has 78 international caps and has won trophies. So-called fans that boo him should be ashamed.
Get behind the manager and the team, we improved last season and narrowly missed on on a return to CL football. The squad has been overhauled, with players shipped out and excellent signings made. Next season Saliba arrives. We now have 4 defenders back from injury, both fullbacks would probably be first choice selections and arguably Holding as well. Chambers (yes G62 your man crush) and Mustafi have both done well recently. The sole senior player out injured, Lacazette, is back soon and that will provide us with a fully fit squad going into a busy period. With Man U's horrendous injury list, we have every chance of getting something from the match on Monday. Exciting times ahead.

8.) 28 Sep 2019 09:22:52
I wish you’d stop chatting utter garbage but here you are smashing it again! 🙄🤷‍♂️.

{Ed001's Note - ah but you beat Forest's reserves, how can you moan?}

9.) 28 Sep 2019 09:59:21
I know mate and Luiz has a cupboard full of medals that confirm his brilliance.

10.) 28 Sep 2019 10:47:53
Shush your not meant to mention it was Forest reserves Ed001 mate, we're supposed to call them double European champions :-) .

{Ed001's Note - oh yeah sorry. What about mentioning it was a cup competition they didn't want to be in anyway? Only I think I might have got myself into trouble with the latest Ask the Ed podcast if I am not meant to mention these things. I will have to see if I can stop Ed033 uploading it so I can edit it a little....}

11.) 28 Sep 2019 11:12:21
I wouldn't worry too much Ed mate, you like most people were already well off RG Christmas card list for not buying into his Emery and Xhaka delusions :-) .
In the summer RG was hoping City might be expelled from the champions league and we could have their place now he's hoping Liverpool might be expelled from the league cup so we don't have to play you, not exactly the hopes of a man full of confidence in either Emerys or Xhaka capacities are they ;-)

{Ed001's Note - but RG knows best, and don't you forget it.}

12.) 28 Sep 2019 12:16:58
Of course your right mate, RG does know best but I sometimes forget like Nostradamous he writes in a secret code to disguise his true brilliance :-)

13.) 28 Sep 2019 17:53:43
Xhaka's won trophies! 😂 He's won the swiss league twice and the fa Cup, elneny won the Swiss league 4 Times and the fa cup.

14.) 29 Sep 2019 13:08:23
Please tell me I'm still on the Christmas card list.



19 Sep 2019 10:28:12
How on Earth is ozil rested for tonight he's only played 3/ 4 of a game all season.


1.) 19 Sep 2019 10:39:41
I believe it was misunderstood. He simply wants a fresh Ozil for the Villa match. Whilst Sokratis has played every match and Holding is back.

2.) 19 Sep 2019 13:14:11
Tonight's game is for a local tombola prize while the league is everything to a club like Arsenal United Chelsea Spurs.
Tombola prizes might look nice sitting in the back of your garage but it's pride of place sitting room prizes all big clubs live off.
I'd rest all first team squad players for the league unless they desperately needed game time like Holding.

3.) 19 Sep 2019 16:17:23
Of course - we need to rest to play the giants called Villa at home having played 45 minutes all season. Obvious 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️.

4.) 19 Sep 2019 16:56:12
Mustafi starting too oh dear.

5.) 19 Sep 2019 17:09:38
I'm delighted to see Mustafi playing hope Xhaka starts too, I'd be more than happy to go out in the group stages of a competion all big clubs try everything possible to avoid being in at all.
Let's kick the champions league front door wide open by finishing top 4 rather than trying to sneak in round the back through the toilet window.

6.) 20 Sep 2019 09:39:41
Because he’s not good enough.

Our defence is worse than last season how can you leave a player with 4 yards of space on a corner to score. I’ve seen enough of Emerys teams not good enough he needs to go at the end of the season.
