Hi Ed, is Arsenal showing any interest in Darwin Nunez?


{Ed002's Note - Darwin Nunez (S) Benfica don't want to sell Nunez but they have had serious interest from two sides. Manchester City enquired about Darwin Nunez in the summer were told he won't be available before the summer of 2022. Borussia Dortmund are keen. MIlan have a sustained interest and tried to sign him before he moved to Benfica, but significant financial issues mean they will need to sell other assets as they have other players they wish to add as well - and he is the most expensive of their primary Ibrahimovich replacement targets. Barcelona have enquired knowing that signing their preferred option is unlikely, but were told they would have to pay his €150M release clause to sign him. Inter want to replace Alexis Sanchez with Nunez but moving on Sanchez is a serious problem for them. Suarez will leave Atletico in the summer and they might provide the best solution. Brighton has a declared interest but it will go nowhere. Arsenal have shown an interest but are far from attractive option and possibly a step back. Scouts from many sides have been watching a number of Benfica players.}

Very detailed, thanks.

Ed any truth in the Asensio rumours, is Arsenal interested?


{Ed002's Note - Marco Asensio (RW/LW) Goals have dried up and his representative is working with a third-party agent to find a club willing to pay something like €40M for the player. The third party has said that the player ideally wants a club in the Champions League but the discussions he has had have been with Leicester City and Leeds so far and admits knocking on the door of other PL clubs including Arsenal. Real Madrid may be open to using him in a part exchange deal of some type.}

1.) 22 Aug 2021 14:43:32
👍🏾 Nice one.



16 Aug 2021 20:45:13
Auba / Cortinho swap making the news.


1.) 16 Aug 2021 22:10:04
Getting rid of one player on stupid wages who seems to have lost it for another with the same problems. Typical.

2.) 17 Aug 2021 07:55:53
And Kia Joorabchian is his agent 🤦.

3.) 17 Aug 2021 08:21:32
I see arsenal would like coutinho neto or lenglet as the swaps I'd rather the cb or gk I don't want coutinho.

4.) 17 Aug 2021 08:51:09
Id be asking for both Neto and one of Untiti/ Langlet.

5.) 17 Aug 2021 09:43:59
Im a fan of Lenglet, not a fan of Neto or Coutinho. But, I don't think we need Lenglet at all. If Auba doesn't want to be at the club, or doesn't see eye-to-eye with the manager, sell him. Swap deals always seem weird. Invest the money in a new striker (no idea who at this stage mind)

{Ed002's Note - Who do you expect to buy him?}

6.) 17 Aug 2021 10:09:22
Think there desperate enough to put Pedri and Fati in the deal Ed 😂😂.

7.) 17 Aug 2021 10:46:47
Hi Ed how does a swap works exactly especially if one player is on a higher salary especially if no exchange of funds is involved? Is it just a bilateral loan where one club take the other player and pay his existing salary and vice versa?

{Ed002's Note - No, it is a case of salary's being renegotiated.}

8.) 17 Aug 2021 11:33:06
Being honest Ed, I don't see who could buy him with the crazy wages the club provided. Not his fault of course, its the club who were daft enough to offer him such a wage, but absolutely limits his options. Barca's current position surely rules them out.

{Ed002's Note - Unless they can move Griezmann or Coutinho on and he reduces his demands.}

9.) 17 Aug 2021 11:35:07
Ok thanks.

10.) 17 Aug 2021 12:07:44
I suppose a straight swap with Griezman is out of the question?

In your dreams Sally


11.) 17 Aug 2021 13:40:10
The whole coutinho swap with auba rumour confuses me (a common occurrence! ;) ) Wouldn't Barcelona have to reduce a lot more of the wage bill before being able to register a new player? I am guessing just coutinho is nowhere near enough to meet the requirements of the Spanish league.

{Ed002's Note - Messi has gone, Coutinho earns a lot, as does Griezmann. Others are leaving as well.}

12.) 17 Aug 2021 13:48:59
Fair enough Ed002. I know this is the arsenal page, but I struggle to see who would take those players without Barcelona having to pay a large part of their wages. Anyway, you have addressed this rumour earlier, thanks ed.

13.) 17 Aug 2021 17:13:01
One thing arsenal have lacked for a while is goals from players outside the box that aren’t the striker. Coutinho would add that threat you’d like to think though my gut is saying it’s another William case waiting to happen where we’re stuck with an aging player that’s not in the starting team.

14.) 17 Aug 2021 17:14:39
Ed Artetas job has to be being monitored closely. The board may not care about winning things but they’ll certainly be worriesd about the lining of their pockets and Arsenal now not even in Europe, our kudos is dropping fast. Any truth in the Conte links?

{Ed002's Note - Be they lost one game?}

15.) 17 Aug 2021 20:19:53
I hear ya Ed. I really like Arteta and how he holds himself, but can you honestly say you can see an identity in our style of play? What I can see, correct me if I’m wrong, inconsistent intensity, very predictable plays out from defence which time and time again we get caught out and possession style that looks like we’re keeping the ball for the sake of it?



09 Jul 2021 19:16:09
Hi Ed whilst it's a little quiet can we touch on the ESR saga again?

In your opinion or knowledge is he stalling to extend his contract or what? Is he Villa's main target and given that they are already bidding for him I presumed they have already received bid (s) for Grealish? If they are bidding before they sell or they sure they will get the price they want.

It appears they are quite comfortable / confident not just financially but also in sense that that they can manage their squad I. e. ins and out.

Thanks as usual.


{Ed002's Note - You seem to be complicating a simple situation. Aston Villa are interested in adding Emile Smith Rowe to their squad and are buying and selling players like most teams. They are aware that their will be a side interested in Grealish but that is not their motivation.}



05 Jul 2021 19:50:01
Hi Eds,
Not find much via the search option, is Arsenal shown any interest or bid for Edmond Tapsoba?

Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - He was of interest previously but only moved last summer and is not for sale unless a huge offer would be made.}

Today was a very good day!

In using a common cliche, He's either very brave or very stupid, following the transfer window, but I've concluded MA is very brave.



1.) 06 Mar 2022 19:52:10
So far so good mate and no one can possibly argue with his decision if we get 4th place, I was really willing the ref to blow the final whistle today signalling another 3pts in the bag, it's been a while since I've been that heavily invested in our results, nice feeling ?.

2.) 06 Mar 2022 20:57:18
Definitely a nice feeling.

3.) 06 Mar 2022 21:54:04
I think MA is growing in the game. Learning quick.
Also liked his telling off to xhaka for pushing too forward.

4.) 06 Mar 2022 22:13:02
Trust the process. Still want kronke n crew out.

5.) 09 Mar 2022 12:22:55
The only thing I feel needs to be different in the attack at the moment is, we have Martinelli on the left but seemed to only concentrate attacks up the right through saka. I would want to see Martinelli and Tierney on the left get the ball more, Remember how Tierney stormed up the left in Europa League, also Martinelli is frightening when he runs through defenders and he does it continuously. Maybe it's what MA has asked them to do, but once both sides of attack are in sync I'm excited to see what they really can do.



05 Mar 2022 10:11:10
Don't worry fellows I'm still here ?

I get the feeling we're like at the halfway point in a progression within the season. It's like no one wants to be on the wrong side of the argument. Sort of like less wait on see, but I know we all believe.

Oh G62 the stars are still aligning ??



1.) 05 Mar 2022 18:59:36
I think humans tend to complain more then give praise these days.
If we weren't doing great there will be plenty over here complaining and blaming someone for the failure and others defending. however when we are good its like oh we don't have much to say.
On the other hand the spurs page is just gone into depression ???.

2.) 05 Mar 2022 19:31:01
Hi Yard mate, it does seem like Jupiter is moving through Aquarius at a very funny angle and Neptune is looking to make its presence felt around the Capricorn region once again, this as all good horoscope readers know only too well, can only mean new beginnings are possible once more ???.

3.) 06 Mar 2022 02:33:33
Are we not all just afraid to jynx it and look like fools when we go on a run of six straight defeats?
Wolves disappearing, west ham slipping off too. it's ours to lose but United and spurs won't less us throw it away with a fight.



31 Jan 2022 16:45:28
Why do I get a feeling of despair on here? Come fellows chin up!

Trust the process.



1.) 31 Jan 2022 19:44:29
I actually think the mood is upbeat and accepting to be fair mate.



28 Jan 2022 13:50:58
Hi Ed01 do you mind doing a detailed player write up on Emmanuel Dennis, if not already done?

The little I see he seems like a decent player who could possibly improve being 24. Can play any where across the front three positions. Looks two footed but predominantly uses the right.



{Ed001's Note - I have added him to the list for you. He has certainly been exceptional this season so far.}

1.) 28 Jan 2022 14:31:40

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}



24 Jan 2022 19:40:33
Hi Eds, what is the requirements to be compliant to avoid my messages being filtered out? My last message as not been posted.



{Ed002's Note - It will be there somnewhere - Discussion perhaps.}

Wow Wesley that's a bit much. Man City use to come to The Highbury just for a draw. Chelsea at one stage had nothing on us.

He has had over 70+ goal contribution in the last three seasons including this one. So this is a off-season and shouldn't be written. Probably dipped because or Ronaldo, although he seems to most played on the left. Still young and British. Would work better if we don't resign Laca and still bring in a stylist no.9.

Roughly £25m but we could lose just about the on Nketiah.

I understand your point DG but I should actually stress is that we shouldn’t get too worked up over it. Every fan have a player or two they would like to see in the but we can’t have them all.

Of course I was expecting a midfielder at least in this window not because of loan or AFCON but because I haven’t though we were there.

We can still make top 4 if we use the squad wise, there’s nothing else to play.

Thanks everyone for being here through the season. Can’t say I’m totally disappointed as at the start I had predicted 5th, frustrating yes that we could have gone one better.

Let’s see what the summer brings. We may need to go back to the original squad number with World Cup end of year.

Have a good summer Eds, residents and visitors.

Still ABBA.

We have to turn up wanting to win that game while being level headed if we get a point we're still only need 1 win.

Anyone getting the feeling we might need Lacazette on Thursday?
